in response to reader comment: Statistics Analysis - Could we recalculate to determine the religion of the bellicose parties?

Hello David from NYC,

I think it's pretty safe to say the religion of Islam is #1 with regards to what religion caused more deaths in modern history. The article from Daniel Pipes touches on this; "Over 90 percent of the 11 million (Muslims killed since 1948) were killed by fellow Muslims.", see the second paragraph from the bottom of Dr. Pipes' article.

However, I've heard Muslims argue that it's the fault of the involved government/dictatorships regarding the high number of Muslim-on-Muslim deaths, and not Islam itself. I dissagree. These regimes depend heavily on Islamic Theocratical rule; they wage war against each other based on different Islamic religion-based ideologies; the masses are encouraged to fight, to rebel based on this.

A question: what ideology is responsible for the most deaths?

Answer - Estimated Totals for the Entire 20th Century - 188,000,000 deaths. 92,000,000 of these deaths are attributed to Communism.

I think it's interesting that Islamism is taking advantage of, and using, and depending on and is supported largely by Democrats. The Democratic Party is well-known for Socialistic and Communistic leanings. England and France are clearly leaning towards Communism (healthcare, welfare, etc.), and Islamism is making a mess in those countries.

Not a few "Hollywood Celebrities" who are Democrats have visited Communistic Dictator Hugo Chavez down South.

What is it with Democrats?
