In 2011, Sunni Muslims accounted for the greatest number of terrorist attacks and fatalities for the third year in a row. Over 5,700 incidents were committed by Sunni Muslims, responsible for nearly 56 percent of all attacks and about 70 percent of 12,533 fatalities.*

Another 24 percent of the fatalities are on Shi"a Muslims. So in 2011, Muslims were responsible for 94 percent of the fatalities in terrorist attacks. Since 2011, with ISIS on the scene, the number of the fatalities "victims of the Muslim terrorist attacks- sharply grew, together with Muslims" share in the world terrorism that is steadily closing in on 100%.

In 2013, according to the US Department of State, a total of 9,707 terrorist attacks occurred worldwide, resulting in more than 17,800 deaths and more than 32,500 injuries. In addition, more than 2,990 people were kidnapped or taken hostage. Information about perpetrators was reported in source materials for 32 percent of terrorist attacks in 2013.

And of these 32 percent, or 17,800 deaths, only three Muslim terrorist groups, namely the Taliban, ISIS and Boko Haram, were responsible for 5,655 fatalities, or for 31.76 percent! That means that "31.76 percent out of the 32 percent of terrorist attacks which had reported information about the attackers were perpetrated by only three Muslim terrorist groups, out of a good 50 more that exist in our turbulent world!

Muslim terrorists can be proud: their share in world terrorist attacks is now close to 100%.

Seems there is not a single country where Muslims would not show their true colors" But no! There is such a country. It"s one of the most developed countries on Earth, and its democratic nature is recognized worldwide, a true ally of the USA and a member of NATO. However, with all this, there was not a single terrorist attack perpetrated by Muslims in this country. Moreover, there was not a single, even minor, riot, disturbance or protest, no matter how many citizens of this country support cartoons of the prophet Muhammad published in some Danish newspaper or in a French magazine.

The name of this lucky country is Japan.

Of course, Japan achieved this by some super effective integration policy, through using the most advanced technologies and assigning billions of yen on the building of thousands of mosques and Islamic schools all over Japan, banning pork in all public places, introducing separate hours for boys and girls in swimming pools in all public schools, and Japanese male doctors do not dare touch their female patients, Muslim women get immense social aid each time they have a child, Shari"a courts were introduced in the judicial system of Japan, and the Koran is considered a Holy Book in Japan"

No, nothing of the kind. What Japan did to avoid problems related to Muslims was much simpler and cheaper; Japan is practically closed to Muslims.

Officially, immigration to Japan is not closed to Muslims. But the number of the immigration permits given to the applicants from Islamic countries is very low. Obtaining a working visa is not easy for adepts of Islam, even if they are physicians, engineers and managers sent by foreign companies that are active in the region. As a result, Japan is "a country without Muslims".

There is no reliable estimate on the Japanese Muslim population. However, claims of thirty thousand made by some researchers are without doubt an exaggeration. Some claim that there are only a few hundred. This probably amounts to the number of Muslims openly practicing Islam. Asked to give an estimate on the actual number of Muslims in Japan, the ex-president of the Japan Islamic Association Abu Bakr Morimoto replied, "To say frankly, only one thousand. In the broadest sense, I mean, if we do not exclude those who became Muslims for the sake of, say marriage, and do not practice then the number would be a few thousand."

One of the leaders of the Muslim community in Japan, "Nur Ad-Din Mori, was asked: "What percentage of Japan"s total population are Muslims?" He responded, "The answer at the moment is: One out of a hundred thousand."

Japan"s population is 130 million people, so if these Muslim leaders are correct, then there must be around 1300 Muslims. But even those" Muslims who obtained immigration permits and lived many years in the country have very poor chances of becoming Japanese citizens.

Japan officially forbids exhorting people to adopt the religion of Islam (Dawah), and any Muslim who actively encourages conversion to Islam is seen as"proselytizing to"a foreign and undesirable culture. Too active "promoters of Islam" face deportation- and sometimes even a jail sentence.

The Arabic language is taught by very few academic institutes; I could find only one such institute: The Arabic Islamic Institute in Tokyo. But even the International University of Japan in Tokyo does not offer courses on Arabic or Islamic languages.

Importing the Koran in Arabic is practically impossible, and the only one permitted is the "adapted" version in Japanese.

Until recently, there were only two mosques in Japan: Tokyo Jama Masjid and Kobe Mosque. Now, the total number of Muslim praying sites in Japan is counted in some 30 single story mosques and about a hundred apartment rooms set aside for prayers.

And Japanese society expects Muslims to pray at home: no collective "prostrating" in the streets or squares; in Japan, for such "shows" the actors can get pretty high fines, and in those cases Japanese Police consider "serious", the participants can be deported.

Quite often, Japanese companies seeking foreign workers specifically"note"that they are not interested in Muslims.

There is not even a trace of a Shari"a Law in Japan, and halal food is extremely difficult to find in there.

The Japanese tend to perceive Islam as a "strange" and dangerous religion" that a true Japanese should avoid, and the recent murders of two Japanese nationals, Haruna Yukawa and Kenji Goto, by ISIS have not contributed to any improvement in the opinions of the Japanese on this matter.

And the most "interesting thing in the Japanese approach to Muslims is the fact that the Japanese do not feel any guilt for such a "discriminatory" approach to Islam, and they evidently do not think they should "apologize to Muslims for the negative way in which they perceive their religion. Arab gas and oil- yes, and Japan maintains good relations with Arab exporters. But Islam " no, and Muslim immigration- neither. Islam is something that is suitable for others, not for Japan, and therefore the Muslims must remain outside.

And Muslims in Japan do not riot, they do not brand the Japanese "racists", they do not burn cars, smash windows, behead Japanese soldiers for having been in Afghanistan, Iraq or anywhere else on Earth " and not a single Japanese has been victim of a Muslim terrorist attack on Japanese soil in the last 30 years.

Maybe Europe and the USA should look at the Japanese model of dealing with Muslims more closely?

And as an added bonus, Islam still commits almost 100% of terroristic worldwide despite you pointing out that there are nonMuslim terrorist groups. Sadly these groups cannot and do not keep up with Islam on terroristic activity. If you feel a Japanese cult of 1,000 people is threatening, why is a religion of 2 billion people who holds the record by far for terroristic acts not a threat to you?

It's not an ally of the USA, you dropped a nuclear bomb on two of their cities.

Also, I sincerely hope it's not really a member of NATO, as you'll notice it's in the PACIFIC OCEAN!

The contention in your title was that Japan has no terrorism. Now it has an acceptable amount?

Please tell that to the 1,000-6,000 subway passengers poisoned by sarin gas.

I don't "hate" anyone. But when nearly 100% of terroristic acts come from one group, to be unaware and cautious of that group is ignorance.

The problem has plenty of history behind it in Europe. The larger the Muslim population becomes, the bigger the problems associated with it become. Why is there no other religion causing problems in Western countries? They all seem to integrate fairly well. We need to ask ourselves this question.

Like Islam, Christianity does not have a history of integrating well, whenever militant nationalism can further its ideological ambitions.

Recall that Christianity failed as a Judaic reform movement in its birthplace of Judaea. It continued to struggle socially and fail politically for several centuries until it became the state faith of Imperial Rome in the fourth century CE. From that place of power it then went on to destroy every other European faith before turning on itself, playing politics with church and state leaders, perpetrating ideological cleansings, and fighting sectarian wars to exhaustion. Only in the 18th century did 'Christendom' begin to understand the need for secular pluralism, and even that lesson didn't take: for the last century, Christian nationalists both Protestant and Catholic have run concerted intellectual attacks on secular pluralism, despite it now being a key foundation of successful and peaceful modern democracies.

In short, this bigoted, nationalistic Christian sentiment still flavours modern Western democracies, and informs a great deal of their international politics.

Christian nationalists don't really understand the militancy of their faith. Because Christian canon doesn't record it, they fail to accept that the Christian heritage is one of militant supremacism and ideological ambition riding the coat-tails of despotic emperors and ambitious autocrats. They conveniently ignore how Christianity propagated through conquest, forced conversion and genocide, and now pretend it was always the 'Religion of Love'. If forced to confront just how cynical, dishonest and ambitious church leaders and theologians were (and for some, still are), Christians excuse these zealots as 'children of their time', or worse, argue that 'everyone does it', therefore they must, in self-defense.

And because Christianity remains so nationalistic, yet so in denial of its nationalism, and so unable to accept that its own horrific history is driven by the same nationalistic ambitions that drive Islamic supremacism, it cannot have an honest conversation with Islam about what Islam is doing wrong -- or what it has sometimes done right.

Consequently, Christianity criticises Islam from a place of deep and unacknowledged hypocrisy. Each has misappropriated a faith of Judaic nationalism for its own ends; each wants a monopoly on monotheistic supremacism; each is jealous of any other claim.

Each is deluded, immoral and hypocritical, and neither dare acknowledge its own faults long enough to have a credible and constructive conversation about the cultural problems they have created.

Also I don't think you can talk about democratic ideals and how Japen doesn't allow "preaching".

You like the idea of how Japan won't allow islamic preaching ? So that whole freedom of religion, freedom to argue idea's gets thrown out the window ?

There are some gaps in your history. From the time Christianity failed as a Judaic reform movement until it was adopted as the state religion of the Empire that would continue to be the most powerful for quite some time, even as a divided empire, what conquests, genocides, and forced conversions propagated it? From 30 AD to 317 AD, which despotic emperors, ambitious aristocrats, and militaries forced it's survival? At what knifepoint did Constantine attempt to nationalize it?

Sky, perhaps you're conflating the tolerance of Christianity declared under Constantine I's Edict of Milan (313CE [https://en.wikipedia.org...]) with the declaration of Nicene Christianity as state faith under Theodosius I's Edict of Thessalonica (380CE [https://en.wikipedia.org...].)

Regardless, you'd perhaps be aware of the Christian persecution of one another throughout the fourth century CE, as various dogmas and sects vied for both social and political influence. We can find extensive documentation of it in the writings of the Patriarch Athanasius of Alexandria regarding the Arian Controversy [http://www.ccel.org...],[https://en.wikipedia.org...]. They are born out too in the writings of fourth century Pagan Roman soldier and chronicler Ammianus Marcellinus [https://en.wikipedia.org...] who writes of Julian's reign (roughly 355-363):
[...] He ordered the priests of the different Christian sects, with the adherents of each sect, to be admitted into the palace, and in a constitutional spirit expressed his wish that their dissensions being appeased, each without any hindrance might fearlessly follow the religion he preferred. He did this the more resolutely because, as long licence increased their dissensions, he thought he should never have to fear the unanimity of the common people, having found by experience that no wild beasts are so hostile to men as Christian sects in general are to one another. [http://www.gutenberg.org... XXII.V.II]

It's also fairly well-accepted that once their faith was adopted officially, Christians wasted no time persecuting competing Pagan faiths, smashing shrines and so on.

Given the behaviour documented, I see no historical reason to suppose that the Christian rise to state favour was especially peaceful, tolerant or innocent of ambition, do you?

As to what happened after the last of the Christian canon was attested, but prior to the beginning of the fourth century, you are welcome to cite some authenticated sources, but I imagine something turned a fight to survive and rebuild into a struggle for popular influence outside Jewry, and thence a scrabble for political influence in Rome itself.

I wouldn't say Christians caused WWII

We do not need any Christian virtue
Our leader is our savior
The Pope and Rabbi shall be gone
We want to be pagans once again."

The Ten Commandments have lost their validity." Conscience is a Jewish invention, it is a blemish like circumcision."

Pill-popper: German dictator Adolf Hitler allegedly was a manic depressive with Parkinson's and devoured a cocktail of drugs.
Adolf Hitler was a drug-abusing hypochondriac who regularly consumed a cocktail of amphetamines, bull semen, rat poison and morphine when he sent millions of innocent people to their death.

That's according to a new explosive TV documentary based on recently-discovered records and letters from the Nazi leader's obese personal physician, Dr Theodore Morell.

In a desperate attempt to show his followers he was the epitome of male virility, the 5ft 8ins German leader downed more than 80 different drugs each day - a shocking habit that some psychiatrists and historians believe turned an" egomaniac into a sadistic mass murderer.

According to National Geographic's Nazi Underworld - Hitler's Drug Use Revealed, psychiatrist Professor Nassir Ghaemi claims Hitler's drug abuse exacerbated his manic depression, reducing him to a feeble, trembling figure.

'It"s not whether Hitler was an amphetamine addict or not " it"s that Hitler had bipolar disorder and amphetamines made it worse,' he said.

'That is the issue. That has never been described before and that would explain a lot why Hitler changed in the late 1930s and the 1940s.'

According to the Irish Mirror, a series of letters and medical reports on Hitler commissioned by the U.S. military after the war were released in America, among them interviews with the Fuhrer's six doctors including Morell.

The 47-page classified report stated Hitler had chronic eczema, persistent stomach cramps and appalling flatulence.

No-one was able to cure the leader's afflictions - until Morell"prescribed live bacteria which eased the cramps.

Hitler made Morell his personal physician for nine years, even though his aides called Morell a "quack."

The reports show Hitler snorted powdered cocaine to 'clear his sinuses and soothe his throat' and used eye-drops infused with cocaine.

That one wanted his wife and dog with him while in a drug enduced state while he offed himself. It must have been the Christians fault. It might have been the Jews too. Heck, let's blame God while we're at it. Let's blame anyone other than the antichristian, drug using, manic depressive, bipolar, maniac. That would make sense.

This particular "antichrist" was about to be killed but offed himself, his wife, and his dog first. It must have been Atheism.
