29. I think you're using hyperbole here
I'd like a link to where Christians or Jews beat, stone and hang women from cranes for speaking to men, for showing their faces, for loving who they wish. Yes, women are considered second class citizens in many "cultures" but fanatical Islam is murdering their own women for things you just don't see anywhere else. And they are doing it in the name of G-d. Moral relativism should not be at work here.
