It is a Crisis of Authority

And ultimately that is due to the fact that the origins of the religious cult are not divine.

Middle East: The crisis is cultural, the words of a Quranist by Abdullah Islambouli

The Middle East crisis stems from the fact that there is an intermingliong of the Koran and hadith (the sayings of Muhammad). The author, a young Syrian Muslim "neither Sunni nor Shiite," follows the Quaranism movement, rejecting the Hadith (the sayings of the Prophet), full of violence, and not closely related to the religious message of the Quaran. All Quaranists are exiles abroad because Sunni society considers them "unbelievers." A varied Islam open to ecumenism: There can be no compulsion in religion.
