When it comes to falling prey to extremism of any kind, psychopathy combined with issues of mental stability, and often low emotional intelligence, are the deciding factors. Research has also uncovered the fact a large percentage of mass murderers suffer from brain damage to the frontal area of their brain which prevents them from appreciating the consequences of their actions and controlling their own emotions. People who have the ability to empathise don't want to cause needless suffering to other people regardless of their culture or religion. Psychopathy is the thing that links the unabomber to the Dylan Roof to Timothy Mcveigh to Omar Mateen and the others of their kind. Psychopathy, the inability to empathise with others or suffer guilt and the inability to control one's own emotions, should not to be confused with other more common forms of mental illness, is something that occurs independent of religion or culture.
As for Shyra law, it is nothing more than mid eastern rulers twisting muslim beliefs to utilize old superstitions that exist in those countries for their own purposes. Muslims I know want nothing to do with this and want the freedom we all have. Take Saudi Arabia as an example, the Saudi Royal family rule through religious proclamations, just as European Kings and the Pope did the same centuries ago. Intelligent people, Muslim or otherwise, can see through this.
