The World’s Top Murderers: Islam Or Red China

16 September 2019 @ 17:27

The Armenian Genocide by Islam

Over at the American Thinker, Mike Konrad seeks to make the following case:

When one thinks of mass murder, Hitler comes to mind. If not Hitler, then Tojo, Stalin, or Mao. Credit is given to the 20th-century totalitarians as the worst species of tyranny to have ever arisen. However, the alarming truth is that Islam has killed more than any of these, and may surpass all of them combined in numbers and cruelty.

While the Cruelty aspect may be true, that is a subject for another discussion.

As to the number Murdered by Islam, Mr. Konrad makes a compelling case for his proposition in a succinct, yet sufficiently detailed manner.

Some highlights:

Conservative estimates place the number at 80 million dead Indians.

According to some calculations, the Indian (subcontinent) population decreased by 80 million between 1000 (conquest of Afghanistan) and 1525 (end of Delhi Sultanate). — Koenrad Elst as quoted on Daniel Pipes site.

80 Million?! The conquistadors’ crimes pale into insignificance at that number. No wonder Hitler admired Islam as a fighting religion. He stood in awe of Islam, whose butchery even he did not surpass.

Over 110 Million Blacks were killed by Islam.

He has the details in his article.


…However, it does not end there. Add the millions who died at the hand of Muslims in the Sudan in our lifetime.

Much of Islamic slavery was sexual in nature, with a preference for women. Those men who were captured were castrated. The mulatto children of the women were often killed, which explains why Islam was not demographically shifted towards the black race, unlike slaves in the West, who bore children to breed a mestizo class. Add in those dead children; and we arrive at well over 200 million.

Remember that in the 7th century, North Africa was almost totally Christian. What happened to them?

…Some converted. The rest?  Lost to history.

We know that over 1 million Europeans were enslaved by Barbary Pirates. How many died is anybody’s guess.


Research has shown that the Dark Ages were not caused by the Goths, who eventually assimilated and Christianized:

…the real destroyers of classical civilization were the Muslims. It was the Arab Invasions… which broke the unity of the Mediterranean world and turned the Middle Sea — previously one of the world’s most important trading highways — into a battleground. It was only after the appearance of Islam… that the cities of the West, which depended upon the Mediterranean trade for their survival, began to die. — Islam Caused the Dark Ages

Add in those unknown millions who died as a consequence.

An interesting theory that rings of Truth.


How many know the horrors of the conquest of Malaysia? The Buddhists of Thailand and Malaysia were slaughtered en masse.

In the same manner, Islam arrived in the Philippines. Only the appearance of the Spanish stopped a total collapse, and confined Islam to the southern islands.

Once again: see Mr. Konrad’s column for the details.

He continues:

Add this all up. The African victims. The Indian victims. The European victims. Add in the Armenian genocide. Then add in the lesser known, but no doubt quite large number of victims of Eastern Asia. Add in the jihad committed by Muslims against China, which was invaded in 651 AD. Add in the Crimean Khanate predations on the Slavs, especially their women.

Though the numbers are not clear, what is obvious is that Islam is the greatest murder machine in history bar none, possibly exceeding 250 million dead. Possibly one-third to one-half or more of all those killed by war or slavery in history can be traced to Islam; and this is just a cursory examination.

Mr. Konrad concludes:

Unlike the 20th-century totalitarians whose killing fury consumed themselves, reducing their longevity, Islam paces itself. In the end, though slower, Islam has killed and tortured far more than any other creed, religious or secular. Unlike secular tyranny, Islam, by virtue of its polygamy and sexual predations, reproduces itself and  increases.

Other tyrannies are furious infections, which burn hot, but are soon overcome. Islam is a slow terminal cancer, which metastasizes, and takes over. It never retreats. Its methods are more insidious, often imperceptible at first, driven by demographics. Like cancer, excision may be the only cure.

Here’s where I disagree with him.

As I documented in two previous posts, ‘A Great Moral Failing’ On Our Part and The Menace That Is Red China — UPDATED, the Red Chinese Regime, by all Legitimate estimates, has Murdered over 400 MILLION people.

Islam is certainly a healthy second, but I don’t believe it surpasses the Red Chinese.

Communist Regimes, as we’ve seen, can be brought down — we have Experience in that area.  Bringing down such an Ideology, which masks itself as a Legitimate Religion, is a different story.  We’ve had over one thousand years to do it and we’ve failed.  This Murderous Cult abides.

One fact shines-forth from Mr. Konrad’s well-done column: Islam is, and has always been, a Pestilence — a Virulent Canker on the World’s Soul.

Islam is another of the Ideologies that Plague us and must be fought with Vigor and Resolve.  But such Resolve can only be achieved if we begin again to believe in the Truth that The West is the height of Civilization.


Mike Konrad has a section in his post about Female Genital Mutilation that is spot-on:

Now consider the over 125 Million women today who have been genitally mutilated for Islamic honor’s sake. In spite of what apologists tell you, the practice is almost totally confined to Islamic areas.

New information from Iraqi Kurdistan raises the possibility that the problem is more prevalent in the Middle East than previously believed and that FGM is far more tied to religion than many Western academics and activists admit. – “Is Female Genital Mutilation an Islamic Problem?” ME Quarterly

Once thought concentrated in Africa, FGM has now been discovered to be common wherever Islam is found.

There are indications that FGM might be a phenomenon of epidemic proportions in the Arab Middle East. Hosken, for instance, notes that traditionally all women in the Persian Gulf region were mutilated. Arab governments refuse to address the problem. — “Is Female Genital Mutilation an Islamic Problem?” ME Quarterly

Remember that this has gone on for 1400 years; and was imposed on a population that had been formerly Christian or pagan.

FGM is practiced on large scale in Islamic Indonesia; and is increasing.

…far from scaling down, the problem of FGM in Indonesia has escalated sharply. The mass ceremonies in Bandung have grown bigger and more popular every year. — Guardian

The horrified British author of that Guardian article is still deluded that Islam does not support FGM, when in fact it is now settled that FGM is a core Islamic practice. Islamic women have been brainwashed to support their own abuse.

Abu Sahlieh further cited Muhammad as saying, “Circumcision is a sunna (tradition) for the men and makruma (honorable deed) for the women.”  — “Is Female Genital Mutilation an Islamic Problem?” ME Quarterly

The Guardian’s writers have a strong reputation for being Delusional when it comes to Ideology..

Mr. Konrad asks:

What other tyranny does this? Not even the Nazis mutilated their own women!

Forced Abortions, in my mind, is a form of Mutilation.  And all the Ideological Tyrannies have Tortured Women [One example: see Mengele, Joseph]


In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar, the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth.

Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle.

Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust, by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind.

    We know 66 million died in the Cultural Revolution (aftermath included), but I didn’t know.45 mli died in the Great Leap Forward.

    So that’s over 100 mil right there, not counting the ~ 30 mil murdered after the Reds’ takeover.

      It’s a long list.

      The Forced Abortion numbers are frightening.

    My wife’s family all came over from Armenia in early 1930’s.
    I have recently been reading several books on Balkan/Ottoman Empire history.
    Quite frankly, historically Turkey is one of the most evil, bastard and murderous countries in world history.

      BTW: The Rape of Lawrence Of Arabia in the movie of the same name was one of their tactics.
