Is Islam as violent as some people claim? Not according to historical data! In addition to that, murder rates in muslim country's, are less than in western nations. But what is most surprising of all, is that muslims have the highest disapproval rate of any of the 6 major religions, when it comes to the killing of innocent civilians. With that being said, when someone starts talking about the threat from Islam, I suggest you take that shit with a grain of salt.
