A reader from Chicago calling herself Mary314 left this comment in response to my article Muslim Atrocities Are Not Done By Muslim Extremists: "[W]hen one person commits an act, you do not blame the ENTIRE ethnic group nor do you blame the religion."
I have to agree with her. Last year, in my article One Bad Apple does Not a Jihad Make I admitted that we cannot condemn an entire religion for the actions of one man. When a man who is Christian kills a woman we do not blame Christianity if the cause was money, jealousy, rage, revenge, or lust and not religious fervor. The same should apply to any other religious group.
And even if a Christian man yells out "Jesus is Great" and kills someone it is not appropriate to blame Christianity because the man is doing exactly the opposite of the teachings of Jesus.
And even if 2 or 3 Christians in the whole world were to kill in the name of their religion during a single year, such an anomaly, such small numbers hardly warrant condemning an entire religion.
I do not condemn Islam when a Muslim man kills another person for a reason unrelated to his religion. However, when a Muslim yells "Allahu Akbar" before blowing himself up in an attempt to take as many infidels with him, and then another Muslim does the same, and then a dozen more Muslims, and then a thousand more commit evil in the name of Islam, at some point, for God's sake, at some point we have to stop saying we cannot blame Islam because of the actions of one man. It is not one man. And it is not one man doing the opposite of the teachings of Mohammed.
A Muslim in Sweden tried to kill infidels (1) because of the presence of 500 Swedish troops among the Allies in Afghanistan. I have no doubt that Muslims and Swedish leftist idiots are asking for calm and "please, please do not blame an entire religion on the actions of one man."

As of today, the website The Religion of Peace has cataloged more than 16,500 Muslim terror attacks since 9/11.
Mary314, I want you to look at the photo at the top of this page taken a few weeks ago. These are Coptic Christians protesting against the blockade of the construction of the only church in the area. Muslims do not want the Church built. Shortly thereafter a mob of more than 3,000 Muslims attacked them, killing 5. The vicious animals damaged and looted or burned at least 50 Christian-owned shops, including jewelry stores and pharmacies. Many Christian families have been thrown out of their homes by other Muslim residents.
Isn't it a bit disingenuous to maintain that these are all attacks by one man.
I will give you this promise: If we catch this one man and put a stop to all these attacks, I will stop blaming Islam for them.
DailyMailOnline, Sweden bomb probe
It has also emerged Abdulwahab - who had lived in the UK for 10 years - visited radical Islamic websites and Facebook groups including one which offers advice on preparing for Judgement Day.
Another website he visited - Yawm Al-Qiyaamah - shows pictures of Tower Bridge engulfed by flames and has more than 8,000 followers.
His Facebook page features an Islamic flag being raised over a world in flames. On the page, he says he is a member of the group Islamic Caliphate State, which seeks to establish Islamic rule worldwide and adds: ‘I’m a Muslim and I’m proud.'

The Religion of Peace, Islamic Terror Attacks on American Soil
Of course, 9/11 was neither the first nor the last time that Muslims have killed Americans on U.S. soil in terror attacks. In fact, since that day, Muslims have killed at least 58 people in 33 separate acts of terrorism in the United States (by the standards that Muslim-American groups set for hate crimes). Perhaps more importantly, there have been quite a few planned mass murders of Americans by Islamic terrorists that were thwarted by the FBI, law enforcement and overseas intelligence operations both before and after 9/11.
Militant Islam Monitor, Muslim executes Jewish moviegoer in Baltimore - tells police he was ' planning to kill someone for months'
At about 8:30 p.m. on June 16, 2006. Mujtaba Rabbani Jabbar, 24, stood in a packed Loews Valley Center movie theater in Owings Mills northwest of Baltimore and "started firing as people were watching" X-Men: The Last Stand," according to a police account. He shot Paul Schrum, 62, a Pikesville medical supplies salesman sitting near Jabbar, three times in the upper body with a .357 magnum handgun, killing him.. Jabbar then walked to the lobby, placed his gun on the counter and waited for police. County detectives said they knew of no motive for the shooting. It bears noting that Owings Mills is a heavily Jewish area.

Woman Honor Thyself, Trolley Square Muzlim HorroR
In just six minutes, 18-year-old Sulejman Talovic left a tragic path of destruction that forever changed the lives of dozens of people. “His intent was to shoot as many people as he possibly could,” said Salt Lake City Police Chief Chris Burbank.
Police released details Tuesday on Talovic’s shooting rampage that left five people dead before off-duty Ogden police officer Ken Hammond and four Salt Lake City police officers killed him in “a shootout,” Burbank said.
Four other shooting victims are hospitalized.
Witnesses told the Deseret Morning News that Talovic appeared to be “hunting” people. Some described a calm expression on his face as he aimed his shotgun and fired.
