@ Cajun247
I think one of the major differences that I see between the extremist groups on the Islamic side and the Christian side (if you count KKK and Nazi as Christian) is that religious leaders on the Christian side (the vocal ones) disavow the actions (and intents) of "their" extremists while many vocal Islamic leaders do not disavow "their" extremists

@ 5Cats - I agree, maybe a suggestion for the admin is a blog site for great topics (or flame wars :) )

Fine, but these "bombers" are neither mainstream or modern by Crakr's definition. They`re the fringe extremist element of Islam. Just like the KKK, American Nazi Party, and British Union of Fascists are the fringe elements of Christianity.

In both cases neither group make up no more than 10% of either demographic (Muslim or Christian).

This thread should get bumped back to page 1, eh?
There are some (few) Muslim Clerics who say it IS OK to do terrorist things. This is the equivilant of a Catholic Cardinal's edict. Now in the RC church the Pope can over-rule a Cardinal, but Muslims have no current "pope" (the final prophet would fill that role, iirc) so if you`re a follower of these particular Clerics, you might believe it`s OK to bomb regardless of other teachings.
Not saying it`s correct, and for SURE NOT all Muslims think that way, m-kay? Still, some might honestly believe they`re `defending Islam` by blowing themselves up.
