This is true. Although few of those other demographics represent themselves as either religions nor profess to be fundamentally peaceful. I should make a disclaimer (in light of Its_Me making the bigot call) - I don't place all Muslims into the 'they're all bad and mentally deficient' descriptor. Whatever my view of religion and the folly of those that subscribe to them I don't ever suggest that they're all murderous imbeciles hell bent on converting the world. My question is simply, if the religion didn't give such clear indicators that violence was a 'reasonable' and acceptable option, how many of these incidents would actually take place? More so if the religion specifically condemned violence, professed respect and equality for women, how many potential incidents of this nature would that subsequently negate? It strikes me that there is certain licence given to violent/sexist and anti secular behavior that can very much be attributed to Islam directly.
