Since 1948, almost 10 million Muslims have died at the hands of fellow Muslims.
Where is the outrage over that? Double standards abound. As the Israeli envoy Dan Gillerman said in 2008: "When Christians kill Muslims, it's the Crusades. When Jews kill Muslims it's murder, and when Muslims kill Muslims, it's like talking about the weather. Nobody really cares about it."
And as the late Samuel P. Huntington observed: "Wherever one looks along the perimeter of Islam, Muslims have problems living peaceably with their neighbors. The question naturally rises as to whether this pattern of the late 20th century conflict between Muslim and non-Muslim groups is equally true of relations between groups from other civilizations. In fact, it is not. Muslims make up 1/5 of the world's population but in the 1990s they have been far more involved in intergroup violence than the people of any other civilization....Islam's borders are bloody, and so are its innards."
"In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful"
The following list shows the death toll from internal conflicts in the Islamic World since the end of WWII to the present.
The list specifically is only partial of the total Muslim death toll and excludes the death toll in conflicts that involved foreign non-Arab or non-Muslim forces, for example the Soviet-Afghan War in the 1980s, or the U.S. invasion of Iraq in the 2000s. Which means that the death toll on the list is solely the result of conflicts, wars, and genocide campaigns within or among Arab or Muslim majority countries.
It is evident that far more Arabs and Muslims were killed by other Arab or Muslim countries than by Israel -- in fact, about 100 times more if not even more than that!
