Reader comment on item: Iran vs. Israel: Who's Making the Threats?

Submitted by Ron Thompson (United States), May 22, 2015 at 22:58

It's very important to have all these threats noted, perhaps especially the last one, grounded in pure Islamic theology. And to have them frequently repeated, perhaps one with every edition of the several evening news shows, if one could hope for such common sense. But I have a question. How many of these men would be making these murderous and genocidal threats but for their religion. Which is the chicken and which is the egg. Do these hateful comments originate with these men (raising the necessity to consider premptively bombing their nuclear facilities) or has all this irrational hatred originated from their bad religion? It still may be imperative to bomb those facilities, but will that end the threat from some other Islamic entity, such as a nucler-armed ISIS, if we don't realize that the ultimate source of the genocidal threats from violent Muslims comes, and will always come, from their religion?
