27. Islam and Terrorism 

QUESTIONS:

  1. 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?
  1. 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?
  1. If the purpose of government is to protect the citizenry and restrain evil, should our government be monitoring carefully evidences of radical Islam?
  1. How do we respond as Christians? (240)
