The only way to get a straight, accurate explanation of someone's motives and intentions is to ask that person. Nobody else can do any more than speculate idly.. There is a p…rominent point in the Passover Seder where the text of the Haggada reminds Jews: "Not only one alone, but in EVERY generation, they rise up against us in order to annihilate us." One way to absorb this statement is to hear it saying "Don't waste your time and energy trying to figure out why; just be assured that there'll soon be another one on the way.". If the intention were to change some part of Jewish practice in order to mollify those who are on the way with their weapons, then it might make sense for Jews to reason out "Why". But that is not the plan, and history has proven that it would make not a bit of difference whatsoever. So once again, the bottom line is: Although it may satisfy some philosophically, there is little to be gained productively or pragmatically from the extended pondering of "Why".
