I'm an atheist, I don't let this stuff get under my skin.
To me, all religions are at fault for this. Yes, some more than others, but Freak I assure you, the Christian Churches in America are hilariously wacked out.
However, Jason Alexander (funnily enough), was on Bill Maher taling about his annual trip to Israel. He discussed with the youth of that area and he says "Like anyone else, they just want to survive."
(Severe paraphrasing coming:)
"Basically, these people, twenty something people, they have more time and hope. They want to figure this stuff out so they're not like the forty-plus others holding centuries of grudges for no reason. They want a solution, and like us, they are sick of terrorism. This isn't a warped part of the world with insane people crawling out of every crack and hole. People want to exist, they feel threatened. But there is ground being broken and talks being made, plans in the works that were unforseeable no more than five years ago."
So I think, based on that and my daily read of five newspapers, that though this core religion does have havoc and mayhem, and the extremists (which I have yet to see mentioned as a point here) are definitely pushing the right buttons, I think there is solutions on the horizon.
Though I am not religious, I am hopeful that people can put their petty perspectives and beliefs aside and see eachother as teh one thing they really are, not "Christian" or "muslim" or "Jew" or "Buddhist" but "Human."
