Ethiopia

It’s extremely disconcerting that in Ethiopia, where Christians are the majority, they are also the victims of persecution. That Muslims are an otherwise peaceable minority group in Ethiopia, but in enclaves where they represent the majority, they attack their outnumbered Christian countrymen, suggests that Muslim aggression and passivity are very much rooted in numbers. This reflects what I call “Islam’s Rule of Numbers,” which holds that, wherever and whenever Muslims grow in number — and thus in strength and confidence — so too does Muslim intolerance for “the other” grow... According to Islamic tradition, in 615, when the pagan Quraysh were persecuting Muhammad’s outnumbered followers and disciples in Arabia, some fled to Ethiopia seeking sanctuary. The Christian king, or “Negus” of Ethiopia, welcomed and protected these Muslim fugitives, ignoring Quraysh demands to return them — and thus reportedly winning Muhammad’s gratitude. Today, 14 centuries later, when Islam has carved itself a solid niche in Ethiopia, accounting for 1/3 of the population, Muslim gratitude has turned into Muslim aggression — not least a warning to Western states. source: http://www.vieinter.com/europe/europe-should-learn-ethiopias-islam-lesson/
