A simple test to see who is most dangerous

Tonight's last installment of CNN's series of moral equivalency, which I do not plan to watch, prompts a question to determine who among the religious zealots are the most dangerous:

Are Muslims who walk through any Jewish or Christian "hotbeds" of "extremism" taking their lives into their hands? Can a Muslim walk, in full religious attire, unmolested through Boro Park, Brooklyn or in Bnei Brak? Can he walk though Rome?

Are Christians or Jews who walk through neighborhoods in Gaza or Iraqi cities or Riyadh doing anything that might endanger their lives?

If religious people are in danger of being killed by people of other religions simply because of who they are, it seems a pretty sure bet that the would-be killers are the dangerous ones.
