34. Hmmm
Japanese Americans were put in concentration camps during WWII. On the other hand, The U.S. was a predominantly christian country when it went to war with Germany, another christian country, and Italy, yet another christian country. We've been to war with people like us a million times. We even killed our own christian brothers exclusively during the civil war.
I have never known christians to lack heart for killing each other for whatever reason, and it seems that muslims are not constituted any differently. The conflicts within islam are just as bloody as any christian vs. christian conflict imaginable.

BTW, Your post script is a different issue entirely. A muslim going to war against another muslim and an Italian-American going to war against Italy are not comparable scenarios. Put it this way, if I'm an ex-pat American living in Morocco, I wouldn't go to war against the U.S., no matter what. But if I'm a christian American ex-pat in Morocco, I wouldn't have a problem fighting other christians.
