Reader comment on item: Instant Retribution in the Middle East
in response to reader comment: Islam's perpetual misery and cases of Instant Retribution in the Middle East

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Sep 29, 2021 at 16:53

As pragmatically indicated here by Reader Prashant and alluded to by this observer's previous response, the implications of retribution occurring during an act of violence (no matter the intended level of malicious intent) always carries with it unintended consequences, sometimes more dramatically catastrophic than others. But in further review of the intents cited here, Reader Prashant's observation of perpetual misery in Islam provided for a cause to pause and reflect on an underreported situation of why Islam and its adherents feel compelled to act in such ways. Are they, indeed, in misery and this leads to internal ideological conflicts that results in expressions of such violence; what of the hatred, for example, they bare and bear towards the Judaeans in a compulsive determination of destructive behavior: is there any sense of restraint to be found?
The evidence and testimony of the perpetrators of these acts of malicious and heinous thoughts say no; that they owe a duty to the violence in response to their obedience to their cause.
They declare no need for repentance, especially in their observance of the religious aspect; thus they are susceptible and true to the tenets of the Quran and will so conduct themselves, even when consequences and potential causes of instant retribution are presented, essentially without any relief in sight.
