in response to reader comment: Jews don't riot

Dear Dr Pipes.

What reader Jeff said about Jews not rioting, not resorting to violence, and not justifying violence is pretty much true for most communities. No community is as trigger happy as the religion of peace. I believe that in the Islamic world the psychology of victimhood is encouraged by both politicians and clergy. From there it finds its way into the minds of common Islamic people. Additionally, in these societies resorting to war and violence is not a collective but individual decision. From there everything goes downhill.
