Resident suggests Islam responsible for Holy Wars rather than Christianity

OUR letter in the October 14 edition, like this one, paints a broad canvas, not impugned by focusing just on cases of Muslim chivalry and Christian lack thereof.

Most European war mongering originated either from bad Christians or those who were not Christian at all.

It is Islam, far more than Christianity, which has the concept of the ‘holy war’.

Christian ‘holy wars’ against Muslims have generally been either defensive, or to recover territory lost to Muslim invasions.
