Given the numbers, the psychiatric / characterial explanation appear me 
most probable.

Given society and genetics and chance, a few people will become violent, 
criminal people. A few of these will channel their sociophatic 
tendencies in a way that is not self-serving but will serve a small 
group belief.

This explanation would, obviously, be inadequate if the share of people 
acting so is too large compared with the people exposed to the meme.
