While I can understand what you are trying to say, Mr. Pipes, that is, in speciifc instances, Moslem terrorists will determine if their intended victim is one of the Faithful, the awful truth is that historically, literally millions of Arab Moslems have suffered brutal torture and death the hands of other Arab Moslems.

These killings have taken place during wars among the Arab Moslems, or have been carried out by Arab Moslem governments against their own civilian populations. J just look at Saddam Hussein's Iraq. Indeed, one's religion in the Arab Moslem world is almost irrelevant, and while in fact Copts, Lebanese Christians, and of course Jews, often suffer indignities, torture, and murder at the hands of their Arab Moslem neighbors and Arab Moslem security forces, Arab Moslems themselves, and in far, far greater numbers, routinely suffer the same and more from exactly those same neighbors and security forces.

Beyond all that, I have personally seen what happens to innocent Arab Moslems in the Palestinian Authority who have somehow gotten between the Arab Moslem terrorists and something those terrorists want, that is, beheadings, maimings, and public shootings are just a few of the things that happen to them.
