The majority of victims.
The first, and also the most numerous victims of Islam are Muslims. I keep saying it, but I continue to see appalling atrocities, and an appalling waste of lives that could have been lived both longer and better. Islam is internally violent and what is noticable is that this internal violence is not geographically confined, but has a cultural root.
Look at this example from Arutz Sheva.
“Attacks in Iraq killed 10 people on Saturday, seven of them from the same family, security and medical officials told the AFP news agency.
In the Dura area of southern Baghdad, gunmen armed with silenced weapons shot dead a father, mother, four sons and the wife of one of them at their home, the officials said.
The father was a member of the Sahwa anti-Al-Qaeda militia, who joined forces with the United States from late 2006 and are frequently targeted by Sunni terrorists, who view them as traitors.
In another attack in the Mansur area of west Baghdad, a lawyer was killed by a magnetic “sticky bomb” attached to his car.
In a third incident, gunmen opened fire on a bus carrying Shiite pilgrims in Balad, north of Baghdad, killing two people and wounding 11. It was unclear if they were Iraqis or not.
Shiites are also often targeted by Sunni terrorists, who consider them apostate”
A grisly cavalcade of death from an ideology that eats its own and does not revere life. If you do not feel sorry for those trapped within the culture created by the ideology of Islam, then you lack a bit of humanity. In the main the victims of Islam are ordinary decent people who have the extreme misfortune to be born into an Islamic culture that often diminishes their life chances, and on a regular basis, shortens their lives either through disease, random violence or not so random terror.
Some ideological paths, whether they be secular or religious or combinations of the two, are a waste of precious humanity.
