    The bakasur government says my daily diet is two deaths of our jawans and two of the protesters. They are dying for a noble cause, of demonstrating our firmness in dealing with the problem. All four will go straight to heaven.

      In the 20th century alone, Western and/or Christian powers have been responsible for at least twenty times more deaths than have Muslim powers. In this most brutal of centuries, we created incomparably more civilian casualties than have Muslims in the w of Islamic history. This continues even in our day—witness the slaughter of 900,000 Rwandans in 1994 in a potion that was over 90 % Christian; or the genocide of over 300,000 Muslims and systematic rape of over 100,000 Muslim women by Christian Serbs in Bosnia between 1992 and 1995. The horrible truth is that, numerically and statistically speaking, Christian Civilization is the bloodiest and most violent of all civilizations in all of history, and is responsible for hundreds of millions of deaths.
