Islam produces a blood lust that is unique. The irony is that Islamics will kill each other in the absence of a suitable "Other" target. Once the line has been crossed that individual selection, targeting and killing , the beast is loosed. Mohammed knew this on a viseral level. Giving permission and encouragement by example to kill other human beings will forever be the legacy of Mohammed and his followers. It is the organizing principle of many cults.

The permission by the authority figure absolves the individual of the responsibility. As in Nuremberg, he was just following orders. Orders which cannot be recalled or modified, orders which come from allah, his god. The essence of civilization serves to regulate this primal homo sapien trait. So we devise disciplined armies and police forces to deny the masses the blood lust. Religious and secular laws making taboos on individuals. Mohammed places the decision on the individual to decide when and who to kill. This makes incorporation of Mohammedism into non islamic societies and cultures impossible.
