Terrorists are not insane

Reader comment on item: It's Not Road Rage, It's Terrorism

Submitted by steven (Ukraine), Mar 21, 2012 at 03:38

While we may think that people who plot and carry out terrorist attacks on innocent people are crazy, it makes perfect sense to them as well as to their brothers in religion. They honestly believe that if they commit murder against infidels they will get an express pass in to heaven and have a life of plenty with 72 virgins. We may criticize religious beliefs as ridiculous or nonsensical, and one can shine the same critical light on every religion and its fantastic beliefs, but in this case, their beliefs are harming our communities and causing us to live in fear. These people are not crazy they are brainwashed to believe that they must kill.
