that is about the best example I've heard of for explaining how Islam thinks.
The rank and file muslim wants to do their business, run their farm, etc without interference. But since the q'uran itself orders them to violence and murder, they are afraid to not support those who are doing violence. Worse, they have bought the lies that are so common in Islamic nations, particularly those rationalizations that are used to try to justify the awful things that are done.
9,000 to 14,000 terror events (FBI office of counterterrorism) every year. A few are naxals or PIRA, but almost all are islamic.
What is fascinating is that, during the first few centuries of Islam, martyrdom meant serving in the Caliph's armies and dying for allah that way.
