Extremist within any religion want to brainwash and terrorise people. It has been happening for ever in the name of GOD, he may be called Christ, Alla or something else. BUT It is the extremists who are causing death and destruction, we just didn't always hear about it until the technical age made travel, communication and bombing devices so high tech and widespread. I have become more interested in religion in recent years and enjoy seeking out information on secret bibles as well as the Kuran, the Torah, Sri Guru Granth Sahib and Tipitaka.

The strange thing is although there are references to revenge or the right to defence in some and of the texts within most of the Holy Books. There is definitely NO reference in any of them to say GO OUT AND BOMB PLANES, BUSES, BUILDINGS etc and kill as many people as you can just because you can, and then blame it on God or the Holy Books because they told you too.

The Extremists are the real criminals, and although we all hate to admit it, the suicide bombers families are as much victims of the bombings as those killed, and the families of those killed, injured and mutilated in the bombings. God help us all, whatever name we use to Pray to you.
