The easiest way to anger anyone in the Republican party of Fox News is to make a comment that ISIS is not really a Muslim group so much as an alienated mass of young men and women who seek to obtain some form of identify by murdering the innocent. For those in ISIS, they have a political program and use religion in order to obtain these goals. They are much less about religion than about seeking power in the Middle East and Africa. ISIS attracts young people who feel alienated in their native land, they lack a sense of identify and desperately want to belong to some group that offers them a feeling of power and self worth. The Islamic state offers all that and empowers these lonely men and women. ISIS does not judge the individual, one can enter the group and discover a sense of power, and, more important a new group of comrades who offer friendship and a vision of the future.
There is absolutely nothing in the Koran that justifies the murder of innocent men, women and children. Heck the Bible is filled with such stories, remember the death of innocent Egyptian children by the God of Jews? ISIS is NOT composed of religious scholars. It more closely resembles the Nazi SS than it does a group of religious men and women. ISIS beheads, the Nazi SS burned alive Jews, bashed in the heads of babies and boasted they were following the orders of their leader. It is time to recognize ISIS for what it is– a collection of disaffected young people seeking to find some sense of belonging in a world that has set them adrift.
