27. Islam and Terrorism
- Based upon the website noted on page 233, footnote 2, there were between 28,000 and 29,000 deadly Islamic terrorist attacks since 9/11 at the time of the printing of the book Well Versed. Why is it that these are Muslim based and not Buddhist, Hindu, Sikh, Jews, or Christians? Why this one faith?
- Of the primary tenants of Islamic practice, what is the unofficial 6th pillar – the pillar of Jihad? If in the Koran it calls for people to kill the “infidels” – Christians and Jews – should we be concerned?
- If the purpose of government is to protect the citizenry and restrain evil, should our government be monitoring carefully evidences of radical Islam?
- How do we respond as Christians? (240)
