It is time that we stop entertaining this argument.

Reader comment on item: Guarding the Secrets: Palestinian Terrorism and a Father's Murder of His Too-American Daughter
in response to reader comment: It's not about religion

Dear Dr Pipes, In the above message, reader David P. Lanigan apologized for Islam and implied that more people have died in the name of Christianity than Islam. People also sometimes say that the Bible has more violent passages than the Quran.

This kind of arguments are very lame and should not be entertained. If nothing else, Quran came five centuries after Bible and should have improved upon it a bit but Muhammad/Allah wasted the opportunity that they got.

In the current times, everytime when I read about a terrorism case, the names of the criminals are Muslim sounding. I do not see Christians or Jews going on killing sprees.

And, how many Christian theocracies exist on the planet?

It is time that Muslims own some responsibility and work on self-improvement.
