|I have been having a lot of fun reading some of the ramblings of our collection of Islamophobes here on SP. Sadly I didn't save the comments, but they generally imply (or state) 'only under Islam' do X bad things happen. Lots of trashing of the Koran, Mohammed etc. I think my favourite one was the suggestion that somehow Islam was to blame for the Sicilian Mafia (that one should get a prize).
Of course, none of this is new or even surprising. The enemy is always the most evil thing ever, and his means the most evil means ever used. The 'dreaded Hun' raped Belgian nuns in WW1, Communists ate babies (the Birchers were still pushing this one in the 70s). If you need further evidence, do a tour of the 'war crimes museum' in Ho Chi Minh City some time. Those nasty imperialists & their puppets!
So, I've decided to give you all a chance to prove to me just how nasty the baddies are, but there are some rules:
*Don't bother quoting the Koran, the Prophet or any Hadith at me. Not only do most religions contain nasty quotes, but until we get some Koranic scholars on SP the Bible Brigade will always have an unfair advantage when it comes to 'contextualizing' the nasty bits.
*Don't bother quoting your favourite nasty Imam or lunatic muslim newspaper. Words are not the issue here. Reagan didn't bomb Russia, Bus Snr. did bring in new taxes & Clinton did have sexual relations with Lewinsky. Actions are what interests me here.
*No blustering about methods. Some people can apparently find a moral difference between killing civilians with a suicide bomb & precision ordinance, napalm or a Kalashnikov. I can't, so don't waste my time trying to tell me how much worse one is ove the other. Further, as horrific as suicide bombings (or car bombings, or any other such nasties) are, a few dozen dead in Baghdad or Tel Aviv are pretty small bikkies in the death stakes.
This is going to be a simple body count comparison. I want your list or biggest & nastiest Muslim wars & killing sprees. We can even have categories of you like. We can have costliest wars where Muslims were clearly the aggressor and largest acts of mass murder by Muslims.
If, as so many of you insist, Islam is so evil, violent & backwards, then the past 1400 years should yield a veritable treasure trove of mass murders & body counts, You have your mission, I await your findings.
