Joshua,

Let's test your thesis. You say a "large number" of Muslims are out to kill Jews and Christians. Since there are 1.2 billion Muslims in the world that would be how many do you think? Let's say maybe 600 million? Or 500 million. That's a large number. Or were you perhaps exagerating a bit? (as those who stereotype people of other faiths tend to do). Maybe what you meant was 100 million.

OK. Let's say 100 million Muslims are out to kill Jews and Christians. Where would these Muslims live? Well, if it were that many they probably would be representative of most Muslim majority countries in the world. That would mean that a lot of Christians and Jews should be dying every day at the hands of these murderous Muslims because Muslim majority countries also have a lot of Christians in them and some have Jews. I lived in Bahrain which has at least 10 Jewish families. Prominent families I should say. Bahraini citizens for years and years and years.

So where are the statistics to prove this? How many Christians and Jews were killed by Muslims around the world today? How about yesterday? If a large number want to kill the,m certainly many of those who wish to kill them would actually be killing them. I'll be interested to see your statistics, because as far as I can see no more Christians and Jews have died at the hands of Muslims than the other way around . . . In fact I would guess far fewer. But maybe you have other information . . .
