They've been raised with violence, the violence drives them. This Tunesien author Abdelwahab Meddeb makes some interesting points about it in "The Malady of Islam".

Old news. Many of us found out about Qutb, one of the Brotherhood's founders, by noon Sept 12, 2001. Here's an interview w/one of his biographers,
John Calvert.

However, this still does not take into account the alliance of the Wahabis w/the Brotherhood.

The alliance between the Muslim Brotherhood (and its various factions and offshoots) and the Wahhabis in Saudi Arabia was strengthened during the 1950s and 1960s in the struggle of the Muslim Brotherhood against Egypt’s Nasserist regime.

So yes, it's ideology, but not just that of the Brotherhood. The Wahabis preceeded them by over 100 years.

They kill Muslims in Indonesia today. Indonesia is the world’s largest Muslim country and was also against the Iraq war.

Actually since Bali is 90% Hindu, unlike the rest of Indonesia which is 87% Muslim with about 1.8% nationwide Hindu, bombing in Bali is MUCH more likely to kill the, how is they term them?

Oh yes filthy polytheists and idolators than Muslims.

Not that the same types do not routinely slaughter Muslims, no only had to look at Algeria and Dafur.

There are 1.4 billion Muslims in the world, the vast majority of whom does not apparently dream of jihad and mass murder
****************************************************
At no time in the Soviet Union was Party membership over 3 to 4% that did not stop the extermination of over 100 Million Human Beings.
In the PRC Party membership is about 5.2 percent of the Chinese population.

One does not need a vast majority of a large population group in order to utilize the masses for megadeath genocide and world domination.
