    Don't these guys know that Islam is a religion of peace?

    What the student learns is more telling than what is taught.

    This fearsome Khorasan suddenly appears just as the US is searching for a justification to begin a new military campaign.

    The US has not appealed to the UN, as is required by international and US law. In characterizing a previously unknown terrorist group as an imminent threat it seeks to invoke the imminent threat standard in international law.

    After the Gulf of Tonkin incident, babies being tossed from incubators and Saddam's weapons of mass destruction I think a little skepticism is justified.

    Like in pretty much all religions, it boils down to which verses and teachings in the scriptures get more emphasized.

    Could it also be which messages and teachings get repeated over and over and over and over again in the scriptures?

    Oh, I'm sure. We well know, for example, that some imams are much more "radical", in lack of a better word, than some others. And, of course, this can be found in all religious traditions.
