Oh crap, its all on the internet? This guy totes knows his shit.
Yes, it's true MANY Islamic people are militant. Absolutely true. I wouldn't even call it a small group, or even confined to just the Arab world. Malcom X was a muslim (sorta) and the anti-equal to Dr. King, and I'm sure not all of it had to do with pent up discrimination of African Americans here in the USA...
But you're posting figures of around 24% and such.... what about the other 75%? Are they NOT militant?
And to make a comparison to other religious groups, lets look at Lebanon - seeing as it's based in the muslim world and has a large and very militant christian population - one that arguably started the powderkeg of that country's civil war that lasted 15 years.
We all know about Hezbollah. They are a downright militarized political party who will stop at nothing to get their shit done the way they want, right? But... If you think the RF and the LF (Christian Militia groups in Lebanon) aren't just as militant as Hezbollah? you'd have to be crazy. They are armed to the teeth with soviet-era weoponry from Hungary and Romania and even have their own freakin Navy, and they USE IT. They have teamed up with multiple muslim groups INCLUDING Hezbollah, as well as Israeli based and funded groups, and betrayed all of them of them on multiple occasions (as have all factions based in that region - as every single party had allied with another and betrayed that party during the war. It was an all out free for all arms race, and still is) They have committed sectarian violence on the utmost level and are no less guilty as any other faction in the world when it comes to violence and terrorism. But, of course, hezbollah? yeah. Theyre the REAL bad ones right?
And don't even get me started on the IRA or UVF if you want to talk about fighting between muslim groups themselves..
