EB, history (yes that's important) tells us that Muslims, Jews, Christians, etc. are all guilty of being more or less violent over the years.
Ergo, knowing what "now" is occurring versus what "then" was occurring proves that the religious affiliation has little to do with the violence of their behaviour.
Even if we were to admit that Muslims are now more violent than Christians (disputed but for the sake of argument) all that does is actually disprove your point.
It's exactly in line with the argument that Muslims (or Jews or Christians) in different countries have wildly different views on violence.
Muslims (Jews, Christians) in different time periods also have wildly different views on violence, etc.
So both geographically or historically, Islam (or Judaism or Christianity) has little to do with the things your looking at.
Those two elements of proof (the history of the world and the variety in current Islam) are so overwhelmingly convincing that it boggles my mind how you continue to argue the contrary point. A point that goes against all observed evidence from that past 1500 years or evidence on current Islamic views.
