Some of highlighted mass casualties by (radical) Islam in four decades - 1971-2011
Most Israeli casualties are innocent non-combatants. Most Arab "Palestinian" casualties are combatants and/or involved in violent attacks. Not to mention Arab-Islamic intentional routine in causing deaths on their side via human shields. Same goes to Hezbollah tactics. In fact: IDF's unparalleled record of sparing civilians in counter-terrorism operations.
Of course, that's besides the last bloody decade of over 18,500 Islamic terror attacks since 9/11/2001.
To be accurate, a lot of these examples are not from radical Islamists, but from radical leftists. Leftists of the Nasserite, Baathist (Arab Nazism), or Communist variety. We seem to forget that these groups from the 70’s and 80’s were armed and backed by the USSR with close ties to such European terrorists such as the Red Brigades, Baader Meinhoff, and the IRA.
My apologies, I left out the following:
* Between 500,000 and 1,500,000 - Iran-Iraq war. (1980-1988)
