    Muslim world is so screwed, I'm beginning to hold religion accountable for this state of affairs, something I previously didn't do.... Of course the more developed areas where people have access to proper education/wealth are different, but the rest have backwards mentality/lack of reasoning. Just because there are low/mid classes, doesn't mean they need to have such primitive worldview. Religion seems to be responsible for lack of reasoning/logic/lack of empathy, etc....

    Unfortunately, this ongoing violence will be justified by the culprits on all sides, but also won't be taken seriously by the general population. Because they believe everything is predetermined by a God and that they're just transitioning into an after life, so no problem with everyone dying .... :(

    This also is responsible for lack of development....Muslims need to an atheistic lifestyle, where there is no guarantee of after life, worldly success, political and social achievement, to get them to behave differently and think differently. They can still be Muslim or religious if they want, but they need totally modern worldview. Otherwise tribal, mob, backwards mentality will remain.

    The early kings created religion to spur on their soldiers in their quest for conquest. With religion, soldiers are not afraid of death because those who bravely die on the battlefield will be awarded everlasting afterlife by the gods.

    These days in the western world people are not religious.
