The mindset of those who commit such acts is just that - a mind set. The mind can justify anything it chooses to justify, and the mind most typically operates from a basis of fear which is a common response of the ego to all that it does not fully understand. The misguided actions of those who terrorize, persecute and discriminate all arise from fear filled egos who's mind tricks allow them to claim a spiritual or religious basis for their actions.

True spiritual experience, on the other hand, is a heart based experience founded in Love - unconditional Love. There is no way such a true spiritual experience can be transformed into acts of terrorism, persecution and discrimination. Unfortunately, organized religions very often practice fear based mind games for the purpose of gaining and maintaining control and power, rather than always teaching, leading and promoting heart based practices in order to serve the purpose of helping everyone experience and spread Love and create greater Unity in the world.
