Are All Religions Equally Violent?


Regarding the ongoing discussion of Islam’s role in terrorists’ justification of their actions in general and Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan’s self-justification in particular, there’s a tendency among the government, academics, and the media to engage in religious equivalency and suggest that Islamic extremism is really no different than Jewish and Christian extremism. 

To counter such notions, Raymond Ibrahim’s article, “Are Judaism and Christianity as Violent as Islam?,” is certainly worth a weekend read.
