>>Only a religion that emphasizes the brotherhood
piece can do that. The sense of "all are one" is
frequently an aspect of spiritual experiences. The
external / extrinsic part often excludes that, as the
jihaddists seem to do today.<<
--I agree the "all are one" experience is one of the
basic building blocks of spirituality. That leads me
to ask this question: are Jihaadists, witch hunters
and other "purifiers" reacting allergically to that
sense that all are one? Perhaps a suicide bomber's
final act is a simultanous denial and reinforcement of
the feeling of connectedness with what he hates. In
death, he seeks purification, while mixing his blood
with that of his victims in a most intimate way.
