Last week in Bangladesh, a nation that is mainly Muslim although it does contain Christians and Hindus, experienced a terrorist attack. A group of ISIS terrorists entered a cafe and proceeded to execute anyone who was not a Muslim. By the time police arrived twenty innocent people were dead along with the terrorists. However, it turned out the six terrorists came from rather prominent families and were educated at private schools and went to college.
Political leader Imtiaz Khan Babal was shocked that his son, Rahn Imtiaz was among the terrorists. His son was an outstanding scholar in school and the future looked bright for him. “I don’t know what changed him. He hardly read any religious books so what radicalized him?”
An excellent question. Perhaps, the answer lies in failure of too many Muslim governments to end corruption, to develop modern school systems, to create a society in which education led to meaningful jobs and a sense one was aiding his society to end poverty and ignorance. It is failure of Muslim political systems which lies at the center of why youth become terrorists.

We Americans are worried about Donald Trump becoming president of the USA, but what about the people of the Philippines? The candidate who probably will become the next president has made some promises:
He plans to kill thousands and thousands of criminals–but, not one is from Mexico.
An Australian missionary was raped in his town. Rodrigo Détente was offended because she was “pretty” and the rapists never asked him to participate in the rape.
Rodrigo plans to rewrite the Constitution so the president can do whatever the hell he wants to do.
Oh, a few other of his plans: No loud Karoke music because people have to get a good night’s sleep.
No one is allowed to get drunk because they have to go to work the next day.
Does Donald now seem OK?
