There is one issue that conservatives and liberals agree upon and that is the assumption there is something inherently wrong about the Muslim religion. Liberals like Bill Maher or conservatives like Bill O’Reilly insist that fundamental to the Muslim religion is a belief in violence and death. I assume this view also agrees such attitudes are not part of the Christian or Jewish religions. At some point in any discussion about the Middle East an American expert on religions will inform people that only the Muslim religion leads to violence. Let us examine the record.
This is how religions in the 20th century behaved:
1. Muslims did participate in the murder of about one million Armenians in Turkey.
2. Catholic Fascist Italy murdered a few hundred thousand people in Ethiopia.
3. Catholics in Spain murdered over million fellow Catholics.
4. Christian Nazi Germany murdered ove twenty million human beings. Adolf Hitler was born a Catholic, lived as a Catholic and died as one.
5. Fascist Italy during World War I murdered at least a million people.
6. Christians in Rwanda in Africa murdered about 800,000 people.
7. Buddhists in Japan murdered at least five million people. Oh, suicide bombers killed about ten thousand Americans.
8. Oh, there were no Muslims in Cambodia when one million people were murdered.
9. Oh, in Christian Soviet Union the government murdered over ten million people.
10. Then again non-Muslim Mao tse-tung murdered over ten million.
The evidence is overwhelming, the Muslim religion can not match Christians when it comes to violence and death!
