Well, when the Christians were trying to make their own period of Unenlightenment ubiquitous, they tried to kill that many of their own, but there were fewer targets then. Sure there were Jews and Muslims but there was just not enough Christians then. And it was really hard to build a good IED then and harsh interrogation techniques couldn't make up the difference. Next time I am sure they will be competitive.

yes - in Ireland P & C killed each other for centuries
but this is just the most recent of many millions -
but even C & P & J do not have religious police & fatwahs
not to mention stoning to death & limb amputation

A rather weak source of pride, to be sure.

Taliban says it shot Pakistani teen for advocating girls’ rights Taliban shoots 14-year old ‘infidel’ who spoke for girls: A 14 year old Pakistani activist who won international acclaim for speaking out for girls denied education under the Taliban was shot and seriously wounded in Pakistan Tuesday on her way home from school, authorities said.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — A 14-year-old Pakistani student who won international acclaim for speaking out for girls barred from school by the Taliban was critically wounded Tuesday by a gunman who boarded her school bus, asked for her by name, aimed his pistol at her head and fired, officials said.

The Pakistani Taliban asserted responsibility for the attack on ninth-grader Malala Yousafzai, who gained notice in early 2009 when she wrote a diary about Taliban atrocities under a pen name for the BBC’s Urdu service. Yousafzai lives in Mingora, a city in the scenic northwestern Swat Valley, where Taliban insurgents imposed harsh Islamic law for two years before being routed by a major military operation in May 2009.

Today, the army promotes Swat as a tourist destination — it sponsored a festival there in July, trying to restore its reputation as the Switzerland of Pakistan. Residents say militants rarely strike, but Tuesday’s daylight attack demonstrated the Taliban’s continued ability to infiltrate the area, which adjoins Pakistan’s insurgency-plagued tribal belt.

Two months ago, Taliban gunmen shot and seriously injured the president of Swat’s hotel association in Mingora and vowed further attacks on those it considers pro-government.

Many Pakistanis view Yousafzai, who also promoted literacy and peace, as a symbol of hope in a country long beset by violence and despair. In 2011, the Pakistani government awarded her a national peace prize and 1 million rupees ($10,500).

She also was a finalist last year for the International Children’s Peace Prize, awarded by a Dutch organization that lauded her bravery in standing up for girls’ education rights amid rising fundamentalism when few others in Pakistan would do so.

Yousafzai was flown by helicopter to a military hospital in Peshawar, where doctors on Wednesday said they removed a bullet lodged near her spine. The girl’s condition was improving, but officials said she had not yet regained consciousness. President Asif Ali Zardari directed that Yousafzai be sent abroad for further medical care if needed; the Interior Ministry arranged documents for her to enter Britain or the United Arab Emirates.

While school children throughout the nation held prayer vigils for Yousafza, and many Pakistanis and politicans expressed revulsion over the shooting, major religious parties and mosque leaders were largely silent. Clerics frequently do not rebuke suicide bombings or sectarian attacks for fear of alienating their increasingly conservative congregants or provoking the Taliban.

On Wednesday morning, Pakistan’s top military official, Chief of Army Staff Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani,, became was the first national leader to visit the victim. He called the shooting “inhuman” and a “heinous act of terrorism,” the military’s information office said.

Kayani, arguably Pakistan’s most powerful man, quoted the words of the Prophet Muhammad: “The one who is not kind to children, is not amongst us,” the statement said.

The army has lost thousands of soliders and officers in its war with the Pakistani Taliban, which has stepped up its attacks and now frequently beheads captured troops.
