I am all about being correct. And in this case, Islam is no more or less violent than Christianity is, if you judge it according to the respective holy book.
Muslims take their holy book very seriously... I know that is an alien concept for Christians.
What you could say is that the people, where Islam is predominant, seem to be uncivilized bastards, that would be another matter.
But let me just remind you that it was the US that initiated a coup in Iran that unseated a democratically chosen head of state to install a US friendly dictator.
Let me also remind you that it was a religious leader, Ayatollah Khomeini, who rallied the people to take their country back without the use of force against, I believe, the fifth strongest army in the world, after heavy armament through the US.
Many a muslim country, once pretty stable and forward thinking, has been destabilized by US politics in order to cement US influence to the detriment of local population opening doors for extremists to take power.
