Tears of Jihad: Ever wondered how many people have died as a result of Jihad?

by Gramfan on November 27, 2011

in Dr. Bill Warner, Gramfan (team member), history of jihad

And people think this is a relatively new occurrence. Not if you go back in history.

Bill Warner has the details.

Estimated 270 million killed by Jihad and counting.

jihad. These figures are a rough estimate of the death of non-Muslims by the political act of jihad.


Thomas Sowell [Thomas Sowell, Race and Culture, BasicBooks, 1994, p. 188] estimates that 11 million slaves were shipped across the Atlantic and 14 million were sent to the Islamic nations of North Africa and the Middle East. For every slave captured many others died. Estimates of this collateral damage vary. The renowned missionary David Livingstone estimated that for every slave who reached a plantation, five others were killed in the initial raid or died of illness and privation on the forced march.[Woman’s Presbyterian Board of Missions, David Livingstone, p. 62, 1888] Those who were left behind were the very young, the weak, the sick and the old. These soon died since the main providers had been killed or enslaved. So, for 25 million slaves delivered to the market, we have an estimated death of about 120 million people. Islam ran the wholesale slave trade in Africa.

120 million Africans


The number of Christians martyred by Islam is 9 million [David B. Barrett, Todd M. Johnson, World Christian Trends AD 30-AD 2200, William Carey Library, 2001, p. 230, table 4-10] . A rough estimate by Raphael Moore in History of Asia Minor is that another 50 million died in wars by jihad. So counting the million African Christians killed in the 20th century we have:

60 million Christians


Koenard Elst in Negationism in India gives an estimate of 80 million Hindus killed in the total jihad against India. [Koenard Elst, Negationism in India, Voice of India, New Delhi, 2002, pg. 34.] The country of India today is only half the size of ancient India, due to jihad. The mountains near India are called the Hindu Kush, meaning the “funeral pyre of the Hindus.”

80 million Hindus


Buddhists do not keep up with the history of war. Keep in mind that in jihad only Christians and Jews were allowed to survive as dhimmis (servants to Islam); everyone else had to convert or die. Jihad killed the Buddhists in Turkey, Afghanistan, along the Silk Route, and in India. The total is roughly 10 million. [David B. Barrett, Todd M. Johnson,World Christian Trends AD 30-AD 2200, William Carey Library, 2001, p. 230, table 4-1.]

10 million Buddhists


Oddly enough there were not enough Jews killed in jihad to significantly affect the totals of the Great Annihilation. The jihad in Arabia was 100 percent effective, but the numbers were in the thousands, not millions. After that, the Jews submitted and became the dhimmis (servants and second class citizens) of Islam and did not have geographic political power.

This gives a rough estimate of 270 million killed by Jihad.

What would be interesting to see is the statistics for the enlightened West that have also suffered random acts of Jihad violence. No doubt because of the sensitivities involved /cough /cough /sarcasm i’m betting Governments would not collect the relevant data to show what damage has been inflicted by such ideological thinking.

My reasoning would be since the 7th century Islamofascism has also made a huge contribution to our societies aswell and i’m not meaning in a positive light either.

Good comment, Ironside!
Religion of Peace has a lot of stats and there is more info here:

You make an excellent point.
has a page dedicated to Islamic attacks in America and another complete one for the entire world. Check it out.

Thank you for them links. It’s a pity though that the task of collecting data on Islamofascist jihad is left up to the general populace.

This is something our Governments should be doing. They collect all other types of data in regards to our lifestyles, city crimes, driving infringements etc why should it be any different to a clear and present threat.

I have given up on virtually every government in the West.

I am convinced they are all guilty of some kind of treason and I hope to live to see the day they are held accountable.

And I have been saying for many months now that I seriously doubt we will ever have another election. (Sounds weird, but what if I am right?)

Think about it. Why don’t they care about polls?

They know most of us aren’t happy and yet continue with these policies.

Why is that happening in a democratic,,err,,so-called democratic country?

Gram i’m reading a book at the moment, Eurabia The Euro-Arab Axis by Bat Ye’or and I tell you if you want an eye opener and finally know what’s happening in the World today it will astound you how we have decended so quickly into this quagmire. No doubt with what’s happening in Europe it’s having an onflow effect to our Government and it’s really not good.

We are really living in the modern age of Quisling Governments who are ‘selling us out’ for a pocket of gold. I wouldn’t sound so disheartened though it isn’t all doom and gloom just yet, ‘yet’.

Besides the people hold the power, they just don’t realise it 😉

I was cheered up a little after witnessing Robert Spencer’s optimism!

It was in line with Niall Ferguson’s book on Western Civilization.

Niall – wonderful man – says the West had all the “killer apps” and that is what made it great.

(I think there is a post on this blog about him,,pretty sure I posted it.)
