Reader comment on item: Distinguishing between Islam and Islamism
in response to reader comment: Pointing out on Muslims is easy

Submitted by Octavio Johanson (Italy), May 12, 2006 at 11:34

How can you even compare Christian fundamentalism with Islamic fundamentalism? Neither Catholics nor Protestants have ever done anything like 9-11. Christian fundamentalism does not go anywhere near the violence perpetrated by Islamic fundamentalism.

You don't get Christian suicide-bombers, do you? Christian terrorism does exist. But there is nothing like a Christian Osama Bin Laden.

Muslims have learned to use victimhood as a weapon. Arab Christians do not commit terrorist acts, and their culture and language are the same as Hamas and Hizbullah. Then, you don't get many Christians using the words 'infidel' or 'holy war'. Christians do not hijack planes or plant bombs. The Christian fundamentalism of George Bush is scary to a European. However, it is the lesser evil. Christians all over the world are less likely to use violence or to force others to convert.
