It's far easier to act as if critics of Islam have a problem with Muslims as people than it is to accept the uncomfortable truth that Islam is different.

Games Muslims Play

 Other Religions Kill Too

The Game:

Bringing other religions down to the level of Islam is a favorite tactic of apologists confronted with the spectacle of Islamic violence.  Remember Timothy McVeigh, the Oklahoma City bomber? How about Anders Breivik, the Norwegian killer? Why pick on Islam if other religions have the same problems? 

The Truth:

Because they don’t. 

Regardless of what his birth certificate may or may not say, Timothy McVeigh was not a religious man (in fact, he stated explicitly that he was agnostic and that "science" was his religion).  At no time did he credit his deeds to religion, quote Bible verses, or claim that he killed for Jesus.  His motives are very well documented through interviews and research.  God is never mentioned.

The so-called “members of other faiths” alluded to by Muslims are nearly always just nominal members with no active involvement.  They are neither inspired by, nor do they credit religion as Muslim terrorists do - and this is what makes it a very different matter. 

Islam is associated with Islamic terrorism because that is the association that the terrorists themselves make.

Muslims who compare crime committed by people who happen to be nominal members of other religions to terror committed explicitly in the name of Islam are comparing apples to oranges. 

Yes, some of the abortion clinic bombers were religious, but consider the scope of the problem.  There have been seven deadly attacks over a 44 year period in the U.S.  Eleven people died.  This is an average of one death every 4 years.

By contrast, Islamic terrorists staged nearly ten thousand deadly attacks in just the six years following September 11th, 2001.  If one goes back to 1971, when Muslim armies in Bangladesh began the mass slaughter of Hindus, through the years of Jihad in the Sudan, Kashmir and Algeria, and the present-day Sunni-Shia violence in Iraq, the number of innocents killed in the name of Islam probably exceeds five million over this same period.

Anders Breivik, who murdered 77 innocents in a lone rampage on July 22nd, 2011, was originally misidentified as a "Christian fundamentalist" by the police.  In fact, the killings were later determined to be politically motivated.  He also left behind a detailed 1500 page manifesto in which he stated that he is not religious, does not know if God exists, and prefers a secular state to a theocracy.  Needless to say, he does not quote any Bible verses that support his killing spree, nor did he shout "praise the Lord" as he picked people off. 

In the last ten years, there have been perhaps a few dozen attacks in which death occurred by people motivated by a religion other than Islam (see GTD).  Such a small handful of loners acting in isolation can legitimately be chalked up to mental illness or (at best) genuine misunderstanding. 

By contrast, Islamic terror is organized and methodical.  Islamist groups span the globe with tens of thousands of dedicated members, despite intensely targeted counter-measures.  Supporters number in the tens of millions.  They are open about their religious goals and they kill in the name of Allah each and every day of the year.  Verses in their holy texts arguably support them.  There are none who will even debate them on theology.

No other religion is doing this.  So while some Muslims may pretend that other religions are just as prone to "misinterpretation" as is their “perfect” one, reality says otherwise.
