  1. Over the past 50 + years around 10,000,000 Muslims have died in violent conflicts. Of this number, over 90% were killed by Muslims themselves in Shia vs Sunni conflicts. Of the rest, over 90% were killed by non-Muslims, defending themselves against Muslim attackers. During this same period something like 50,000 have died in the Arab-Israeli conflict. 1/3 of them where Jews and 2/3 were Arabs (Muslim & Christian). 90% of these Arabs were not Palestinians but Egyptian and Syrian soldiers who died in the wars of1948/67/73. In September 1970 around 20,000 Palestinians were killed by the entirely Muslim Royal Jordanian Army. Many times more than all the Palestinians killed by Israel since 1948. There was not a single Arab who protested that war crime. Yet when Israel kills a terrorist the Arab world yells and cries. I’m not saying Israel is a pure angel, however, in the Middle East, the safest country for any Muslim to live in is Israel. The most dangerous country for any Muslim to live in is a Muslim majority country. The greatest enemy of the Muslims is not America or Israel, it is Islam itself, as it teaches not to accept others’ beliefs. Can you explain the killing of 200,000 Syrian civilians in the last 3 years? Can you explain the killing of 100,000 men, women and children in Algeria, using the most abominable killing methods? Can you explain the terror attack 3 years ago on the peaceful village of Al-Kisheh in upper Egypt, which killed 21 Coptic peasants? Can you explain the 5,000 Shia muslims that were just killed in the last week in Iraq by ISIS? Can you explain the killing of 43 Christians in Nigeria by Boko Haram and the kidnapping of 276 school girls? Can you explain this phenomena of killing that takes place in the Muslim world? Is it all a revenge against America? It is all revenge against Israel? Or is it to merely to satisfy barbaric religious instincts, aroused by Islamic religious teaching, which incites the rejection of others, the killing of others and the denial of others? In Muslim countries religion is the main source of education. When you educate a child in his early years to learn the words of Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, which says: “I was ordered to fight the people until they believe and Allah and his Messenger”, you made the first step of making this child a future terrorist. Islamic teachings are playing a role to create these terrorists who killed all the people I mentioned. This is not Israel who kills Muslims all over the middle east. It is Islam. It is not the terrorists who distorted Islam, it is Islam who distorted the terrorists. When Saddam Hussein buried 300,000 Kurds and Shia Muslims alive, we did not hear a single Muslim protest against that crime yet when Israel enters Gaza and kills one thousand Palestinians, most of them armed Hamas terrorists, the Arab world cries. Your hypocrisy serves the continuance of Muslims getting killed around the middle east. There will be no peace in the middle east, not between Jews and Muslims and not between Muslims themselves, until the Muslims re-examine their Islamic books which are full of calls to “Takfir” and insulting other religions. When this will happen, the world will respect the Muslims as it respects the Jews.
