Islam may be a religion of peace but most violence occurs in the regions that are 98% muslim. For example, the hottest region (the region most in news) at the time of this writing is the ISIS controlled region of Syria. That is where they recently murdered four innocent journalists. You would believe that in the musical chair of violence and counter violence, the regions that are not in news will be relatively calm. Far from it. A suicide bomber killed 33 Egyptian security personnels in Egyptian Sinai. So much killing of brothers by brothers! Go figure.

Psychologists must study this pattern. And, perhaps, our Islamic friends must realize that any country that does not support separation of church and state and freedom of thought will regress into violence. Period. There is no exception to this rule.

Good luck for peace in the middle east.
