Why is is so typical of people to pick out one or two cases of horrific crimes commited by wacko-extremist Muslims and apply it to the entire global faith community.

...We don't blame Germany for the crimes of Hitler!

We don't blame Ugandans for Idi Amin!

We dont blame Chirstianity for the crimes of Ted Bundy, Ed Gein, Jefferey Dahmer, Myra Hindly, Harold Shipman, John Wayne Gacy etc.

So why are you blaming Muslims for the crimes of a few nutcases?

Ok, so you claim MILLIONS of Muslims are screaming for the blood of Americans - your logic therefore means MILLIONS equates to every Muslim on God's earth!?

We'll in that case MILLIONS of Americans commit homicide every single day, since the nation has the highest global rate for the crime. So by your logic, the whole of American society should be tried for the crime of a few MILLION.

Stop stereotyping, get over yourself and grow up.
