Islam is indeed a pretty silly religion, as silly as Christianity and perhaps more so.
But the USA, the most weaponized nation in the world is dominated by Xians, and the military itself is strongly dominated by Xians. The President of the USA routinely orders military strikes and has the power (post 9/11) to unilaterally declare defacto war against other nations and to cause summary executions w/o no trial and no judicial oversight. (The same President is allowed to hold prisoners in his gulags indefinitely with no limits.)
The Presidents of the USA all claim to be Xian, and candidates for the office are compelled to debate before megachurches if they hope to be elected. Many citizens of the USA claim that the USA is in fact a Xian nation and that Xianity is the basis for the USA's superiority to other nations. The USA prints the motto 'In God We Trust' on it's money, which certainly implies the god of the Xians.
Since 1991, the USA has been in a state of almost constant low level war with a variety of Muslim nations. Even after the War in Iraq of 1991, the USA flew occasional bombing missions and blocked food and medicine from the nation. Also in the 1990's, the USA conducted military operations in several African countries with large numbers of Muslims. Since fall 2001, the USA has been in a state of very active war (though sometimes undeclared) against Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Libya, and Yeman...all Muslim nations.
The USA has vastly superior armaments to the Muslim nations it attacks, and the USA is always the aggressor nation, always throughing the first punch. Three thousand or so people in the USA were killed by terrorists who allegedly were Muslim, yet the number of Muslims killed by the USA is certainly somewhere in excess of 100,000...the USA, a Xian nation, does not bother to count the Muslims it kills.
Nor will the USA provide an official count of the Muslim held indefinitely in its gulags, scattered from Gitmo across Europe and Asia, although the USA does claim the right to hold these people indefinitely and without habeas corpus.
To aid the USA, the nation employs military 'contractors,' mercenary armies not bound even by the loose laws of war. The biggest of these, Xe, formerly Blackwater, is run by a Xian named Eric Prince who believes it is his duty to kill Muslims.
Certainly Islam is a silly religion, and certainly it has some violent rhetoric, but in the modern era I have to give props to Christianity for its aggressive power, supremacist thought, and unrivalled bloodlust. Next to the Christians, the Muslims are amatuers.
