    In theory, if we don’t blame Christianity for the Klu Klux Klan, why do we blame Islam for ISIS? Muslims around the world are desperately trying to show that they do not condone the violence of ISIS, with other religions also trying to establish sympathy for Islam. Rabbi Marc Schneier, a Jewish pastor who sympathizes with the non-ISIS affiliated Muslims says, “Islamic extremism is a genuine threat to world peace, but those who lump all Muslims together and dismiss as meaningless the courageous stand of the moderate majority against extremism, aren’t helping to win that battle” (qtd. in Malcolm). Despite claims that hate crimes against Muslims have increased, many such as Senator Rubio don’t believe these claims.…

What they believe is something more pure for their daily lives is what causes global distress.

    In The Rise of the Islamic State, Patrick Cockburn, award-winning Irish journalist, investigates instability in the Middle East and the rise of ISIS as a global threat. Volatility in the Middle East began long ago with a centuries-old schism involving Sunni and Shia Islamists. ISIS is a present-day Sunni jihadist group, targeting Shia in Syria and Iraq. The group also threatens anyone who is “targeted as an ‘apostate’ or ‘polytheist’ or who is simply against its rule.” Cockburn brings to light the sudden rise of this new insurgency, the lack of concern from the general public, and the government’s inability to combat the revolts. Wahhabism, an Islamic religion based on the Qur’an, has dominated the Sunni belief system.…
