London's brutal, barbaric attack defies description. It's seems unbelievable yet all too real in today's world.
Why did these attackers driven by Islamic ideology murder this lone British soldier? What drives some – certainly not all – Muslims to wage "holy war" on infidels? What motivates a suicide bomber in Afghanistan? Or Al-Qaeda who kidnapped, killed, and be-headed Wall Street journalist Daniel Pearl in 2002?
We talked with Professor Moshe Sharon of the Hebrew University about the tenets of Islam, why some are waging a "holy war," and the difference between the "house of war" and the "house of peace." Perhaps it will help bring some understanding to the incomprehensible.
