Shame on you, fra_nothing.
Spiritual awakening can only follow genuine, heartful suffering, and genuine heartful suffering in general only comes into the world as a consequence of the action and "reactions" of evil-minded individuals. It is in this sense, and for this reasons, that Christians are admonished to love those who persecute them.. For the more you are persecuted, the closer you grow to God, and therefore (in a somewhat twisted way), the more you have to "thank" your persecutors for...

It's kind of an "individual" thing between (a) you; and (b) those who persecute though.

Now that said, sitting around and singing kumbaya all day long isn't going to make the world a better place, or correct the evils that are inherent in this world, which - to some extent - is the responsibility of the Christian. As St. Paul writes in Ephesians 5:11, it is our responsibility to expose the acts of evil and terror that are enthroned in high places. Pray for the Souls of those sinner, perhaps, if you so choose, but remember that you are called (by God's Law) to expose their wrongdoings, to hold them accountable for their actions and to be an agent of justice upon this earth..
