Islam, the religion of cosmic vengeance

In a December 2005 entry, “Islam’s war against humanity,” I show the fraudulence of Robert Pape’s idea that Islamic suicide bombing is only directed against occupiers of Islamic land, since in reality suicide attacks can be directed against anyone, including Muslims, if their murder can arguably help lead to the end of an occupation. The warrant of suicide bombing is thus infinitely extensible. I also show the similarity between Muslims’ war against humanity and the Noldor’s terrible oath of cosmic vengeance in Tolkien’s The Silmarillion.
