I MEET A LOT OF MOSELEMS DAILY AND I DISCUSS MY RELIGION CHRISTIANITY WITH THEM. BUT I HAVE FOUND OUT THAT WHEN THEY TALK ABOUT THEIR RELIGION I KEEP QUITE UNTIL THE FINISH, WHAT THEY WANT TO SAY. wHEN EVER I START MY OWN DISCUSSIONS AS RELATING TO MY RELIGION, AT A POINT THEY WILL NOT ALLOY ME TO FINISH WHAT I WANT TO SAY. CANT THEY BE A LITHLE CAM, AND LISTEN TO ME BEFORE CASTIGATING CHRISTIANITY.

Terrorism against the US from Muslims has very little to do with religion. It is about us interfering in their lives. We try and tell them what they should do and what they should believe and then interfere with them when they do what they want anyways. It pisses them off enough they will fly airplanes full of people that they really don't have a squabble with in to buildings with even more people they don't have a personal squabble with. If we really wanted to improve the lives of these people, rather than just bullying them, we wouldn't be bringing them freedom and a mickey d's on the corner, we would say all who want something different our door is open and if you need a lift just give us a call.

There are actually a lot of reasons and factors to consider in order for us to unravel the mystery surrounding general Moslem aggression in defending their faith. I too am really curious to get to the buttom of it. But it seems that as I study and devote some time to figure them, the mystery gets even more deep, and the pit even more endless. I have a theory though. And I don't know if this is tenable. Sociologically speaking, the attitude of the general public of a given community spells common trends based on their collective experience. For instance, when you go to a community which experienced being downed by an epidemic of virus and was actually quarantined, the general mood of the people is for them to seclude themselves electively. People will try to avoid strangers and would feel a little insecure about themselves. And we are speaking here not of certain individuals. We are speaking here of a general public exhibiting a collective mood for seclusion. Two factors may be considered here. First, the common experience of the community, and second, their common response to it. Both are crucial, because it will determine how a set of people will react to certain situations in life. Let's put it in terms of the Moslem experience. The Moslems started as a minority religion when Christianity and Judaism was already a complex and structured religious societies in their respective grounds. It is unfortunate that their initial experience as a budding religious community is being agrressed by both the Jews and Christians. Generally, they felt the animosity of being regarded as pagan or heretics by Christians, pushed from the banks of Palestine to settle in Middle East, had to suffer persection under many empires. So, their initial collective experience was that of being outcast and dissed. They were regarded with animosity since from the very beginning. Collective anger and rage were among their first reaction against those who persecuted them, including Jews and Christian, Christian crusaders most specifically. When they emerged as an already organized religion, and had a lot of membership to prod, then they started to get back at those who persecuted them. Thus, their collective response was anger, hatred and disgust, as these were the very first things that they woke up with in the beginning of their religious journey. Hitorically speaking, they were persecuted. At most times, they felt insecure about the faith that they hold. Which is why, the collective attitude they have come to learn with up until the present is to disdain other forms of religions which persecuted them first. Kind of a way of getting back. Unconsiously, they are into this cycle of hatred, and they don't probably know why. So if you're asking me why the hell can't they listen to you as much as you can listen to them, well probably, that's the aggression they learned from their fathers, who in turn just learned them from their father's father and so on. It's a baggage of animosity that they carry and they probably don't know where they got it. They just carry it because they come from a long history of being aggressed all throughout, and they carry the reaction of animosity because of their history. I hope that helps.
