However this doesn't mean that they *won't*. Who says those Muslims do
it, THEN find an excuse in their religion? The Catholics had their

And the bible contradicts itself, especially when you compare the old
and new testament. There is a foundation for violence in the Torah and
Bible, but they are largely ignored.
