Capitalism is an economic system. It does not teach violence at all. There is no economic theory of conducting violence associated with Capitalism. As esoteric argument regarding violence resulting from a disparity in the distributation of wealth, may be made.

"Islam" has, as a core dogma, the imposition of the mythology by force and violence. The composite of source material regarding the establishment, implementation, and control of the mythology reinforces the dogma of Muhammed, a 7th century merchant-turned -prophet-turned -politician, insists on expanion by "The sword", a metaphor for "Submit or die" to the will of the imaginary diety, which grants access to paradise only by killing or being killed. The role of the "Mosque" or meeting place is to reinforce the malevolent dictum of the core dogma.
