The "Nice" Muslims, Eh?

We are often reminded that there are "nice" Muslims.  Up to 2,000,000 Christians were murdered by Muslims--who ran the government--only about 100 years ago.  I'm sure there are "nice" Muslims, so long as they don't control the Government, eh?

Oh--by the way--

Hundreds of news stories have been written during the past month reporting on the 100-year anniversary of one of the darkest events in world history, a two-year killing spree that claimed the lives of an estimated 800,000 to 1.5 million Armenians.

Virtually none of these news stories, however, bothered to mention why the Armenians were defenseless against their rulers in the then Ottoman Empire: because the Ottomans had disarmed them …

While the remnant of the Ottoman Empire, today’s Turkey, disputes many of the details having to do with the Armenian genocide, most historians agree on certain basic facts. First, that the Christian Armenians had long been denied basic rights under the Ottomans’ Muslim law. Second, they were excluded from participation in the government. And third, Ottoman law made it a crime to possess a firearm without government permission. The Armenians, as British traveler H. F. B. Lynch wrote in 1901, were “rigorously prohibited from possessing firearms.”...--Halbrook quoted at Captain's Journal

In brief:  Muslims are a helluvalot nicer if you can shoot them when necessary.

I think that may be true of people in general.
