Reader comment on item: [Pew Poll on] How Muslims Think
in response to reader comment: More murder from christians than muslims

Mr Zafire, I'm not sure exactly what your point is, beyond the self-evident one that ALL of mankind has the potential for violence. You give no basis for your assertion whatsoever and no figures, which makes your claim dubious. Islam is evil because it treats people as a means to an end.

But the universal potential for violence is not the issue in the modern age, the issue is the violence SANCTIONED by Islam to further the cause of Islam. Anyone with objectivity knows that nearly all the terrorists of the recent past have been Muslims. In the UK , there are concerns over the number of women killed by Muslim relatives in so-called "honour killings", commonly known as murder.
