No problem here.
A great deal of evil has been done in the name of the Cross and the Crescent, both.
The difference is that those following the Cross have mellowed, and (some of) those following the Crescent have gotten more virulent.
How many people have been killed in the last century by Christians for specifically religious reasons? Darn few, especially when compared to the 100M+ in the same timeframe by the various anti-Christian ideologies (Nazi, Commie, Islamist, etc.).

What scares me is that the Islamists are REALLY pushing for a religeous war.
They do not seeem to understand that IF they get their wish, and IF they get a "Crusade", it will likely result in Islam being wiped off the face of the planet save for a very few very small communities.
If it happens, a bunch of people on BOTH sides who do not need it will be slaughtered, because we really cannot afford to spend time sorting them out.
The Moderate Muslims had better get a clue fast and bring their errant "brothers" to heel!
I consider Wahabism to be a nihilistic death-cult and it may bring down the whole thing.
