    My question to wahabbi propaganda channel Al Jazeera is how does the above mentioned line makes islam a religion of peace

  37. The perpetrators (believe) these atrocities are justified, and have religious beliefs as well, and they make this conflicting dichotomy add up with even more beliefs.
