I Hear About Islamic Terrorists...

But I never hear about Christian Terrorists. And I think I've discovered why that is. BECAUSE THERE AREN'T MANY! Wikipedia has an article about Christian Terrorism, and it's all of maybe a couple typed pages. Then you look up Islamic Terrorism, the article is much longer. There are only 7 known Christian Terrorist groups worldwide that Wikipedia shows, and 24 Islamic terrorist organizations. Another thing shown is that "Christian Terrorists don't use Christianity as the base for their actions. For example, the KKK does more attacks based on social issues (race and such) as opposed to religious ideals. Most of the attacks done by Christian Terrorists were over abortion, and attacked clinics. Also, if I'm not mistaken Christian leaders denounced those attacks. And as Steve Gill commented on this morning, where is the denouncing of Islamic Terrorism by their religious leaders? There has only been one major denouncing of Islamic Terrorism, and that was by the one cleric in Iraq.

Islam breeds hate. It has been shown, and scholars of Islam admit it. "It is a certain fact that not all Muslims are terrorists, but it is equally certain, and exceptionally painful, that almost all terrorists are Muslims." - Abdel Rahman al-Rashed

One of my good friends from school moved here from Jordan, ( he is a proclaimed Christian) and he told me that he, as well as other Christians over there had to literally fight (as in, with fists) with other kids in order to survive there, simply because they said, "I am a Christian."

*UPDATE* Thanks to Clint, who linked with the MIPT Terrorism Knowledge Base, and the full 9 pages of Religious Terrorist groups, most of which are Islamic
