I can't explain why some Muslims are bent on rabid violence; most Mullahs will tell you they are 'corrupting' the Koran.
I've never read the Koran, so I don't know....but it is an expansionist religion.
Why can't they all adopt the concept of 'magic underwear' and simmer down?
That would mean loosening values to accommodate lefty social movements. I don't think they should do that. Certainly the political left have never been asked to truncate their belief system to accommodate the religious.
If you can't explain why some Muslims are bent on violence... Perhaps you'd find that answer by reading some Quran? The expansionism and violence begin within it.
