I do not know of any major religion that actually preaches violence.
Violence seems to go hand in hand with politics rather than religion.
I just look at the statistics. There are just over 1 billion Muslims, so, if Islam is a religion of violence, how come things are so quiet?
I believe that what we find alien is the concept of suicide bombing? Well, i think that you will still be able to find US Navy veterans of WWII who will tell you about Japanese Kamikaze pilots? It's a cultural thing perhaps? The Japanese would be Shintoist or Bhuddist I believe?
Just a thought.
