At least in the sort of context we're talking about here, the "real market price" you mentioned is what someone is prepared to pay for something, no more and no less.

When the price of goods divorces entirely from the cost to produce them, the pricing model turns to "extraction". Just you wait until Amazon wins the pricing war...

I would say that the risk is not about Islam, Christianity or any other form of religion, but the radicalisation of any religion as a call to arms of the disenchanted for someone else's political agenda. Torture, execution, biological warfare and ethnic cleansing have been performed in the name of most religions in the world.

Politically in the current climate, it's easier to dissect the population based on skin colour or religion rather than behaviour.
