West never was or is peaceful - the record says it all - easily embroiled in world biggest battles and biggest killings of human beings from colonialism, WW1+2, Vietnam, Hiroshima etc till present day.

It doesn't matter if West was Christian or now more or less Secular - it was made and defined by killings - USA, Australia - both by destruction of the native people. And yet you accuse other of being un-peaceful.

Sorry - but no lands have been as peaceful as Muslim Lands. Europe would have been extinct if it had carried on fighting after 2 World Wars. America is young - it was Europe the heartland of West - and creator of USA. 50-70 million deaths in just WW2 and killing of 6 million Jews? That is some standard of peacefulness. Afterwards the same desire to kill has turned upon others .... and the record is quite apparent for anyone one to see.

A slight tangent - but West leads the way in violent crime. You should see the stats. Barbaric

Now the thing is George are you Lying, Being Selective, Being ignorant or a Plain Simpleton.
