Of course no one has dropped bombs on them, overthrown their elected governments, financed death-squads to terrorize them (the Israeli Defense Force is clearly just an overgrown death squad), rampaged through their streets, kicked in their doors, beat them up, raped them, etc. All these things probably have a lot more to do with Muslim attitudes worldwide than any religious doctrine.
