Who knows how to kill?

When Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan stormed past Israeli President Shimon Peres at Davos in January 2009, he is known to have shouted, “You (Jews) know well how to kill.” Erdogan has also called Israel, “a festering boil in the Middle East that spreads hate and enmity.” But a look at the statistics shows that Erdogan is a liar. Arabs and Muslims are far 'better' killers than Jews (Hat Tip: Joshua I).
In a 2007 research, Gunnar Heinsohn from the University of Bremen and Daniel Pipes, director of the Middle East Forum, found out that some 11 million Muslims have been violently killed since 1948, of which 35,000, (0.3 percent) died during the six years of Arab war against Israel, or one out of every 315 fatalities. In contrast, over 90 percent who perished were killed by fellow Muslims.

According to Mssrs. Heinsohn and Pipes, the grisly inventory finds the total number of deaths in conflicts all over the world since 1950 numbering around 85 million. Of that, the Muslim Arab deaths in the Arab-Israeli conflict were at 46,000 including 11,000 during Israel’s war of independence. That makes 0.05 percent of all deaths in all conflicts, or 0.4 percent of all Arab deaths in the Arab-Israeli conflict.

In another calculation ignoring “small” massacres like the one that goes on in Syria and other deaths during the Arab Spring, only Saddam’s Iraq, Jordan, the elder al-Assad’s Syria, Iran-Iraq war, the bin Laden campaign in Iraq, the Iranian Islamic revolution and the Turkish-Kurdish conflict caused 1.65 million Muslim deaths by Muslims compared to less than 50,000 deaths in the Arab-Israeli conflict since 1950, including fatalities during and after Operation Cast Lead which came after the Heinsohn-Pipes study. For those who don’t have a calculator ready at their desks, allow me to tell: 50,000 is three percent of 1.65 million.

Golda Meir, the fourth prime minister of Israel, or rather the “Mother of Israel,” had a perfectly realistic point when she said that peace in the Middle East would only be possible “when Arabs love their children more than they hate us.”
Read it all.

Perhaps this Erdogan would comment on the Armenian genocide. I would say these Turkish Mohammedans know well how to kill.

Of course it is all Israel's fault for all of the hate and discontent in the Middle East, as well as in the rest of the world. It's the fact that Jews in general, and Israel in particular actually exist. Jews are even responsible for Muslims killing Muslims, global warming, earthquakes, droughts, and every other disaster both natural and man made. From a play/movie (paraphrased), "Lord, I know we are your chosen people. But couldn't you choose some one else for a little while?"
