Justifying Mayhem

Most of the old testament is about Yahweh’s violent behaviour, or violent behaviour committed to appease him. The Qur’an is mostly threats of what terrible things will happen to you if you don’t accept the Qur’an. It also calls in a few places for killing infidels. Most sane believers ignore all this. However, people with terrorism in their hearts will cherry pick their favourite holy book for justification for mayhem.
