Another broad stroke generalization of an entire population based on the experience of a single man who probably has some serious mental issues. And since when did Saudi Arabia become the Vatican of Islam. Historically, Islam has always been de-centralized with multiple theologies, schools of thoughts. Saudi Arabia simply happens to have the Kaaba which makes Muslims visit Saudi thereby giving the wrong impression that everything Saudi does or does not do is a reflection of all Muslims in the world.
Quite the contrary, If anything at all, Saudi and its school of thought is the bane of Islam and the nemesis that we face across the world in the form of Islamic fundamentalism. For 1400 years, Islam was just another religion whose populations lived and mingled with other religions with occasional zealots and movements that happened and continues to happen in almost all religions. But come 20th century, we see this sudden rise in fundamentalism and its roots can all be traced back to Wahabi strain of Islam that was born out Saudi in late 1800s, gaining further stronghold because of the petro-dollars. This school mutated and gave rise to Salafi movement and what we see with ISIS is a strain much further radicalized from the original Wahabi theology.
Western world continues to be-friend Saudi monarchy in their short sighted view of the world measured in barrels of oils and dollars and in the process turning a complete blind eye to what has been and will remain the biggest nemesis to the world at large - Saudi Arabia and its Wahabi school of thought.
Ken Ballen: West fails to realize: What drives Islamist fighters is Muslim faith. Military force alone won't win, but there is something the West can do

+ Nir Darmoni, Firstly, a big thank you for your vote of confidence on me being a non radical person which implicitly assumes that other Muslims are. :p ;-)

My commentary was never about me or why majority of the terror attacks involve Muslims. Purely in statistical terms, there is little argument on that. I don't think simply harping about these statistics takes us any closer to the solution or to the answers on why. 

In everyone's utopian desire to help explain this phenomenon, people like this author make recommendations that attempt to address the symptom than the root-cause. As a seasoned engineer, you know what happens when we do that. We patch one problem only to create another one elsewhere. The ISIS phenomenon is classical example of it. In our desire to selectively force democracy upon Syria and Iraq, instead of approaching our friends in Gulf, unknowingly, we have un-leashed a situation which is worse than it ever was even under the brutal dictators (who I never or do approve of either).

The main intent of my comment was to highlight this flawed approach of addressing symptoms without looking for the root-cause. In this case, the root-cause happens to be Emirs and Sheikhs from our very friendly Gulf states who are funding ISIS - while we continue to beat our drums around Iran and North Korea as terrorist states - the Saudi monarchy and its Wahabi idealogy.

Nice!! It helps to be tall... heads and shoulders above everyone else. ;-) The compartment is practically empty, you should see us in North Central line. Hardly any vacant seats and not to mention the limited trains even during peak hours. I envy folks traveling in UP-NW line.

Where is the fairness?
It can be exasperating, when life throws a little unfairness your way. When that happens to commentator Barbara J. King, she watches this video featuring an experiment with two monkeys. It helps.

Yes it is. But content wasn't as bad as it's cheesy headline suggested.

In a world fraught with far bigger problems, some people and nations can't seem to get out of their narrow and misguided views. Its a shame this place happens to be the center of a great religion like Islam.

All that 'good behavior' actually died with the advent of Wahabism in late 1800s. Islam managed to integrate and integrate quite well with regional cultures before that (look at the subcontinent, east europe). But rise of Wahabism along with newly found oil money has led to where it is today where a small group of people with narrow idealogies hold entire world hostage.
