They've never been a majority anywhere outside of eastern Europe (mostly eastern Poland and western Ukraine and Belarus), and most of the populations of those areas fled to Israel immediately following the war.

For whatever reason people often assume there were/are more than there actually were; Germany for example (which was considered a major center of Judaism) in 1933 had somewhere around 522,000 Jews, in a country of 64 million people.  That isn't even 1% of the whole population (0.8).

I am not the map author, but the Polish and polish-influenced part of the population results in significantly higher catholic numbers than in other ukrainian provinces. But i do not know if they are in majority.

Yes, so are Estonians but because atheism isn't a religion, I coloured the area of these countries with the colour of that religion that is dominant there.

Yay! Judaism!

But the majority religion in Judea and Samaria (West Bank) and the Golan Heights is Judaism.

wikipedia says 1,5 million arabs for the westbank. Now many of them might be christian and not muslim, but still, I don't see why judaism would be the majority.

Exactly! Judaism is not a minority there! Judea and Samaria (the West Bank), is historically Jewish, and most of the West Bank, is populated by Jews.

NeuStrasbourg Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2011
I still don't get it... there are MANY jews living in the westbank, but "MOST of the west bank" is arabic and muslim, and there are even more and more muslims living there. Also, how the jewish settlements will develop once the arab state is declared is not clear; in any case the jews there are outnumbered

Judea and Samaria are Jewish period. There are more Jewish town and villages then Palestinian ones.

And if a Palestinian state will be recognized by the UN, they have no power in setting borders without the peace and agreement of Israel.

More Jewish towns does not mean there are more Jews than Arabs, and Arabs are assuredly the majority in the West Bank.  It doesn't matter that you were the majority two millennia ago, you aren't now and haven't been for a long, long time.

Okay lol. Wanted to be sure before I made a comment on it. xD

Now I'll put my comment:

Well that snuffs out all the bullshit out there that Islam is rising to take over Europe. Christianity's STILL the largest religion. Holy Fuck!

Christianity still being larger doesn't mean Islam isn't growing in Europe; including "dangerous Islam".

It is growing, however it's not at the numbers people "claim". The various religions of paganism including Asatru and Wicca are also "growing". However that doesn't make them a threat. I don't like the term "dangerous Islam". It's selective and assuming that other religions like Christianity aren't "dangerous". Let's face the facts, every religion has extremists however they're always going to be in the minority.

Let's just say that violence in the name of the Allah/Koran/Muhammad is much higher than in the name of anything else religion related in Western Europe. The threat has been blatent since 1989.

You're right when it comes to one thing: "dangersous Islam" isn't a good term... because all religion is dangerous.
Though I don't know what you mean by suggesting "dangerous Islam" is selective and uninclusive of other religions: That's a bit of a non-argument. We weren't discussing Christianity, we were discussing Islam, therefore Islamic extremism and violence were pinpointed.
If I was to use the term "dangerous Christianity" would you have been as likely to have a problem about it being "selective"?

What numbers are people claiming about Islam exactly? I'm sure few would suggest numbers without backing.
Are you confusing people's worries about the amount of power/sway given to Islamists (and especially the extreme) by national Governments/media with the (current) number of muslims?
There are also the worries about halal, no-go areas for non-muslims, among other things (which are yet to be confirmed, and probably never will be; but much of the British public aren't very trusting of HM Government when it comes to facts concerining things which could cause controversy or "community tensions").



"every religion has extremists however they're always going to be in the minority."

That's unverifiable pap. The Christians spring to mind immediately.
Unless of course you're defining extremism as being outside the norm; in which case extremists would always be the minority by definition, and therefore you made an empty statement...

It's selective because you're blasting just Islam. You're also neglecting that Christianity has been responsible for more violence in the past 2,000 years since it's inception. What extremist Islam has done in the past...20 years is pretty much insignificant to the tens of thousands, if not millions that Christians have murdered in the name of God over the past 2,000 years.

Seriously Islam's not the problem, even if it's growing, it won't be a problem. In America, we're going through our own terrorist events by the Moral Majority. Our government was corroded away more by the Christian extremists than extremist Muslims could ever do. So I cease to understand what your point is? Besides being a bit Islamophobic for no apparent reason.

The map isn't discussing Islam growing, but that Christianity has a strong iron hand grasp on Europe.

This discussion is over.
You're completely missing/ignoring the points I've made, including the fact that you brought up the "rise of Islam" in the first place; arguing in fallacies such as comparing modern Islam to Ancient Christianity, as well as US to European Christianity. What does the US Christian Right even have to do with Europe?

You seem to be extremely Yankocentric (as well as Islamophillic), believing that the US Christian Right somehow has something to do with Europe and/or Islam. (I think I'm now safe to assume that: If I was to use the term "dangerous Christianity", you would have had no problem with me being "selective".)

Then you accuse me of Islamaphobia (whatever that even means).

Good day.

Yeah, true. But why scaring Islamization anyway. They're humans as anybody else. Still, global warming is going to make lots of area near by Equator inpossible to live. People need to move somewhere else...

People are afraid of what they don't understand. Whether it's the various pagan religions or Satanism, etc. People are somehow afraid of it or opposed to it because that's just how society works, unfortunately.

As for global warming....there's still people in the people that don't believe it exist. -shoots self-
