There are Muslim fundlmentalist extremists who have an agenda and want Christians out of Muslim lands.
It is easy to see the other as the "same" it is harder to see them as not all the same.
These same muslims are also killing muslims too. Not just Christians....
When did I say it is all
Muslims killing Christians?
However, I did give a reason to believe that it could be the government leaders of the middle east that may be supporting these terrorists and their activities. The governments are the ones with all the money to help purchase the armory.
The disputed debate was whether or not the term holocaust applied or not. My contingency based on the definition of the word, death by fire, those who had died by use of bombs that result in a blaze that have killed people, the term holocaust does apply. The bombs go off in the churches and the people trapped inside, burn to death.
Islamophobia is a made up word, liken to me saying gunophobia. (imho)
Faster, Please! » “Islamophobia”
that the term was coined by Iranian Islamists, as part of their campaign against the modern Western world, which was the point of the 1979 revolution that brought down the shah.
Most everyone can agree, guns don't jump up and kill people, yet people, will use guns to kill people. Islam by itself can not kill any one. To utilize and tack on the term phobia in association with Islam as a belief system, is to insert a brainwashing technique, used to belittle people and increase a scare by the use of, fear, or to be afraid of....
Extreme is a word that denotes an off balance of too much, or too little. Asking for too little of something is just as harmful as asking for too much of the same thing.
A fundamental is a basic principle of a structure.

^Does that even exist? If so, by whose definition? Surely, by applying what is, we can determine that which isn't. adding: imho, that is a derogatory in terms.
Facts do not tell the truth. The truth is all in how one wishes it to be perceived as such.
Fact, there have been massive killings of those who are Christian taking place in the middle east. Also, Christians are being forced from their homes and their land in order to survive and not be brutally maimed, killed and utterly destroyed. Death by beheading, very popular there.
Since the term holocaust has already been used as a term to describe a similar horrific event in history, many will refrain from the use of the word again and will insist there is no comparison to the murders of the Christians and the Muslims in today's time. Why is that?
These same muslims are also killing muslims too.
The dispute between the Sunni and the Shiite began, because
my bold for emphasis The Four Righteous Caliphs
Tribes all around Arabia broke out in open revolt; while they continued to acknowledge Muhammad as a prophet, they refused to send taxes to Medina now that Muhammad no longer lived.

There is our
"religion of peace" which is all about tax dollars---nothing more.
To believe or not to believe---has nothing to do with it! It isn't about one's religion, at all.
However, Islam is utilizing the faith as one might utilize a gun to do its bidding.
Does the term holocaust apply? I believe so, yes.
