One German scientist, when asked about «Muslims terrorists» said: «Who started the First World War? Muslims? Who started the second world war? Muslims? Who killed about 20 million Aborigines in Australia? Muslims? Who sent the nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Muslims? Who killed more than 100 million Indians in North America? Muslims? Who killed more than 50 million Indians in South America? Muslims? Who took about 180 million Africans as slaves, of which 88% died and were thrown into the Atlantic Ocean? Muslims?
