Strange Notion of Revenge

TRIPOLI (Reuters) - At least 16 people died and 50 were wounded in Libya in four days of clashes between rival factions in the southern city of Sabha, a health official said on Sunday.
According to residents and local reports, the latest bout of violence erupted between two tribes after an incident in which a monkey that belonged to a shopkeeper from the Gaddadfa tribe attacked a group of schoolgirls who were passing by.
The monkey pulled off one of the girls' head scarf, leading men from the Awlad Suleiman tribe to retaliate by killing three people from the Gaddadfa tribe as well as the monkey, according to a resident who spoke to Reuters.
Someone please explain the logic involved.  This is why we need more Muslims to move here?

This has nothing to do with Islam, and everything to do with backwards, tribalized cultures. One finds similar behavior in non-Moslems with similar levels of development. The Hatfields and McCoys were not Moslems. Neither were the medieval Norse, whose penchant for blood-feud is chronicled in detail.

One of the things I greatly fear for the next 25-50 years is mass immigration from sub-Saharan Africa to the U.S. The pressure for such immigration is enormous - there are now almost a billion people in sub-Saharan Africa.

And most of them, whether Moslem or non-Moslem, belong to backwards, tribalized cultures. Vide the horrific violence in Liberia, Congo, and Rwanda, none of which are Moslem.
