This morning, rather at 3 am EST (8 am in Brussels), the airport and train in Brussels were bombed. Twenty to thirty people lost their lives and over two hundred and thirty more were wounded. Why? What did Brussels do to ISIS?
ISIS has adopted an 'if you're not with us, you're against us' attitude. Basically, if you don't support their efforts, agree with them wholeheartedly, or live the way they think you should live, they believe you should die. I suspect that the ones being voted to be suicide bombers are those who don't quite agree with everything they are trying to preach. My theory is that they are 'volunteering' to be suicide bombers to redeem themselves. You know, I wonder if they realize that their efforts would lead to a world population of about---10? If that, even. Okay, so that number is highly inaccurate, but it was pulled from the air to make a point.
It is human nature to want to live. People with depression fight to survive it every day, though some may lose the battle. Still, it isn't normal/average to actually want to die under normal circumstances. (That statement does not include those with terminal illnesses or severe defects that have reached the point of no return, but even those people, if given the opportunity, would rather live than die). So, why else would these people decide to blow themselves up unless they were brainwashed to believe it was their only way of redemption?
