Tell you what. It's the same. Allah or God. Seem from here in Europe where we, fortunately, don't have a population which is feverishly worshipping to a god, be it any of them, we can only ask:
WHY is it that these poles are so strong ?
And what causes it that the ones are against the others although BOTH are "blessed" with the same ideology in large parts ? No idea, really.
Allahu akhbar ! Praise the Lord ! Do it together, dammit. Get some brains and figure finally that the two major religions state, beside their barbaric undertones, the same, that there's only one god and he wants peace for all of us (under certain conditions....). But both of them think it's THEIR god which counts. The differences are not in the basic scriptures, but arrived when some clever guys showed up and figured that religion can be used politically.
PR for the masses ! People don't need education to understand the universal philosophy hidden behind it, because they don't have to understand it, they have to OBEY that image and the rules of a god who sent it all down and follow it, otherwise they'll burn in an imaginary fire. Works good in a population which can't read or write.
2000 years ago, ok. But today ???
The only thing that makes those fairytales work until today are human's deep desire for eternal life (because he doesn't know anything else than life) and - HOPE and RELIEF.
If not, the whole stuff would have been disposed of long ago.
And with hope and relief you can stage bloody wars, because people haven't figured that the other side believes basically in the same as they do....
In the US, you have those people who apparently spend their life in church howling "Praise the Lord!!!" loudly and endlessly, and in the ME you have the same people howling "Allahu Akhbar!!!" endlessly.
OMG !!! See the difference ? There is none.
The only difference is: The people in the ME can be lured into terrorism and war more easily due to the fact that they are poorer, less educated and have even lesser chances to get a job. In the West it's not yet like that. That's why it's still quiet on that front. But that could change, and in Europe we see the first signs already starting with the refugee crisis. But god doesn't play a role - yet.
You can bet that hardcore believers in the West which are in the same economic situation as the majority of people in Somalia, Sudan or lately Iraq and Syria are, could as easily be influenced to scream Praise the Lord ! and start a similar behavior. Emotions and fear of survival would erase any former education and would revert to - hope......religion.
Because humans are no different. The circumstances they live in make the difference.
