Dr.RJP, the short history of Communism is precisely the point.

Depending on which statistical information you cite, Communism (in the LAST century) was responsible for anywhere between 85,000,000 to 110,286,000 deaths. See -


Dr.RJP, where do you get the stat 350,000,000 deaths "Muslims are directly responsible for" from?

Given that around one-hundred million deaths have been attributed to Communism in it's relatively short history (100 years), imagine what will be the number, say, in another 1400 years?

Anne M has a good point.
