So even christians are picking and choosing from their own faith what they think is moral, rather then having morality recieved from the Word.
Muhamed before he was recognized by all arabs and lived with his followers in Medina, also told his followers to attack the caravans from mecca saying that muslims may attack the comercial interests of their enemies even if they have not themselves been attacked. Just like the World Trade Center.
All religion at some time have believed in violence it's not just the Muslims and the others you mentioned, even though a lot of people are picking on the Muslims for a small minority of extremists
