The common denominator between IS and Mao

The massacres related to Islamic extremism cause many to think that if we do away with religion then wars would cease. But what they fail to see is that the last century was the bloodiest in history, and that the atrocities were committed by anti-religious movements, led by men like Stalin, Mao, and Hitler. The prestigious Encyclopedia of War says that of nearly two thousand wars fought in human history, only one hundred and twenty three actually were religiously motivated, half of them in the name of Islam. So, instead of blaming religion as the usual cause of war, it would make more sense to focus on the common denominator between Islamic Jihadists and men like Mao, Stalin and Hitler – and that is hate. Whereas Jesus said: ‘By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one to another.’
