That's right, 11,000,000 Muslims have been violently killed since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948. But not by Jews. In all the years of the Arab-Israeli conflict a mere 35,000 (less than ⅓ of 1 percent) died fighting Israel. The overwhelming majority of the 11 million Muslims were killed by fellow Muslims:
Daniel Pipes, Arab-Israeli Fatalities Rank 49th
To place the Arab-Israeli fatalities in their proper context, one of the two co-authors, Gunnar Heinsohn, has compiled statistics to rank conflicts since 1950 by the number of human deaths incurred.
This grisly inventory finds the total number of deaths in conflicts since 1950 numbering about 85,000,000. Of that sum, the deaths in the Arab-Israeli conflict since 1950 include 32,000 deaths due to Arab state attacks and 19,000 due to Palestinian attacks, or 51,000 in all. Arabs make up roughly 35,000 of these dead and Jewish Israelis make up 16,000.
In a different perspective, some 11,000,000 Muslims have been violently killed since 1948, of which 35,000, or 0.3 percent, died during the sixty years of fighting Israel, or just 1 out of every 315 Muslim fatalities. In contrast, over 90 percent of the 11 million who perished were killed by fellow Muslims.

I have previously written about the fact that Palestinian Arabs have a better standard of living under Israeli occupation than Arabs living under Muslim rule; it now appears that Muslims are safer fighting a war against Israel than living peacefully in some Muslim country. Is that crazy or what?
