We've had two instances of serial snipers going after darkies/muslims whatever in the last twenty years, killing several. There are other cases as well.

Islamists are on the other hand AFAIK only responsible for one death (the failed suicide bomber who blew himself up before getting to his destination). There have also been several foiled attempts (most related to the muhammed cartoons).
I was making the tolerance comparison to muslim countries. Famous muslim countries like iran or saudi-arabia have very low tolerance to christians. Im sure I dont have to dig what kill rates there are.

There is a unity movement of christians and muslims that vows for co-operation and harmony but I guess they are still a minority.

Muslim-Christian unity characterizes Egypt’s uprising

CAIRO (IPS) - Over recent years, Egypt has witnessed mounting tension between its Muslim majority and its sizeable Coptic Christian minority. But in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, the site of ongoing mass protests against the ruling regime, members of both faiths chant in unison “Muslim, Christian, doesn’t matter; We’re all in this boat together!”
