Another Day, Another Riot

It would be interesting to go through an entire day without a riot over what someone said or wrote or filmed about the Muslim religion. I am Jewish. Throughout my life people have insulted Jews, people have beaten up Jews and people have killed Jews–lots of them. There are some Jews in Israel who believe since they encountered prejudice and hatred the solution is to practice such behavior against others. But, most Jews avoid such behaviors.

In Bangladesh, mobs of Muslims attacked minority Buddhists because A Buddhist made a remark about Muslims. They wrecked four Buddhist temples and burned homes. All such demonstrations prove is there is something wrong when supposedly  ”religious” people vent hatred toward their fellow humans. The question is: what causes so many Muslims to resort to violence when someone insults them?
