Look at the Inquisition, they destroyed so much of what the Moorish and Jewish culture, science and art gave Spain that it put Spain back several centuries compared to where it had been. History tells us that atrocities have been done in the name of nearly every religion, particularly the Abramic 'series'. And to talk about "Islamic atrocities" in current history without even referencing the destruction that the neo-con Christian movement in the USA has wreaked upon the Middle East is remiss and prejudiced.
This is a topic about Ole and his view on Islam was mentioned. I don't disagree that nearly every religion, particularly Abrahamic have been used for atrocities but what you're basically saying is that I can't say anything against Islam unless I say something against Christianity etc. at the same time. Sorry but that's just BS. It's the same excuse China supporters use when someone say something against China because of Tibet, "oh the Europeans did the same thing to the Native Americans and nobody is saying anything about that".
