Islam is not completely existentialist in nature.

Reader comment on item: [Pakistani Christians and] A War Against What?
in response to reader comment: Islamic terrorism as theist existentialism..

I disagree with the statement that Koran is the source of terrorism. It is the interpretation of the Holy Koran that has led to it. Blame terrorism on ignorance...any educated Muslim would condemn terrorism done in the name of religion because it is morally and religiously wrong.

People who carry out these acts are brainwashed...they seek refuge in the idea of the afterlife.If you state the Koran is existentialist philosophy,please keep in mind that existentialism accords full responsibility to all people for their actions.The Koran is black and white and if people choose the black then they will be punished.People who choose the black ignore this and go for the higher purpose which is something they have been brainwashed to believe.It does not say anywhere in the Koran that Muslims must kill non Muslims outside their country.They must do so only to protect their homes and culture,within their geographical boundaries.
