Danish, the goal of those who kill in the name of religion is to attain power. It really doesn't have all that much to do with religion (although the Islamists will impose their interpretation of Islam if they win). Religion is just the pretext. Religion is a cover for political ambitions. BTW, it does not only apply to "religions." Communists killed over 100 million people--they were atheists.

Yes, unfortunately it's all about politics and power.
