8 Out of 10 Most Dangerous Countries in the World are Muslim


When your competition is North Korea, then you really have to step up your game, but fortunately the Muslim world keeps offering examples why tourism to a Muslim country is as smart as diving head-first into an alligator pit while covered head to toe in bacon grease.

Travel and Leisure Magazine has named the 10 most dangerous vacation spots in the world. The types of places you go to wake up with your kidneys in a cooler, your head on a spike and the rest of you being used as props in a video by the friendly sword-waving natives. (via Religion of Peace)

Topping the list is Pakistan which has sand, sun and suicide bombers. Next up is Sudan, whose tourist attractions include genocide and the world’s largest ball of severed limbs.

In fourth place is Lebanon which has great food, great sightseeing and even greater car bombings. In fifth place is North Korea, which has recently completed construction of a hotel made entirely of human screams. It isn’t a Muslim country for the technical reason that it is already ruled by a modern day version of Mohammed with better hygiene and grooming habits.

In sixth place is Syria, which is a lot like every other Muslim country, except this year its turn for holding a bloody civil war has come up. Seventh is Yemen, which recently took home a trophy for the country most likely to be run by Al Qaeda by the end of next year. Eight is Uzbekistan and the less you know about it, the happier you will be.

Ninth is Iran; run by an Islamic Revolution whose founder, literally, outlawed fun.

Tenth is Algeria. If you’re tired of life, visit Algeria.

Why are Muslim countries so much more dangerous than non-Muslim countries? I blame Islamophobia.

    In the future, it may become apparent that the best arrangement would be to have nothing whatsoever to do with Muslims. Don’t travel to their countries. Don’t give them foreign aid. Don’t have trade with them. Don’t let them in the country. Evict the ones that are here. Bye bye.

    Let them murder eachother, and play out their bloody fantasies between their failed states.

    Keep them hundreds of miles offshore, and in the sights of a thousand missles.

    That one day will become apparent as the simplest solution to “the

    Muslim problem”. But I suspect we will try other, more complex solutions.

      #3 is Georgia.
      Except for Islam, Marxism is the only surviving doctrine in which people have absolute faith. Blind faith is a force that makes smart people stupid and good people bad.

        Although it is not a Muslim majority country, Georgia has plenty of Jihad violence, as well as Russia-related dangers.

    • A 22 Year Old Man

      Georgia, but only because of all the live mines and unexploded artillery shells that are still lying around for you to step on if you don't know what you're doing — not to mention the periodic Russian invasion.

      It doesn't really count, therefore.

    Funny how this article seems to be written by biased pro-american/jewse…Americans (and today jews and israel) have always used propaganda to alter the society's view about other countries and specially muslim countries. Last time I checked Brazil, Columbia, and some areas in France and Britain are wayyyyy more dangerous that countries listed in this biased article. Keep up spreading hatred it will serve Amercia pretty well.

    This is too much ridiculous…. US and others countries like isreal and india hate muslims and all the time degrade and defame to the muslims wrolds so this list is to much fake no one trust on this useless web……….

        its not islams fault it is the fault of people who are divided amongst themselves if u studied islam u will know what it exactly is all the progresses the western countries r making in every feild its basis were lsid down by the muslims

          "…if u studied islam u will know what it exactly is all the progresses the western countries r making in every feild its basis were lsid down by the muslims"

          If you studied only the lies of Islam you'd imagine that all good things came from it. If you're a Muslim who disagrees you risk being killed as an apostate.

  • Usman

    Islam is a relief for the whole mankind if it is followed properly……Sadly, the acts you are talking about are not humane, what to talk of Islamic…… so these people are shunned out of the circle of Islam unless the repent what they have done…….so please, stop posting stuff about what you don't know…….

    Islam does not encourage Fighting……It says never to start an attack or take an offensive stance……it tells us to defend and keep ourselves ready in the case we need to defend ourselves and our religion…..!!!!

    Suicide bombers don't know better……Suicide of any kind is prohibited in Islam…..even if it is to stage war……So these suicide Bombers are going straight to hell if that makes you feel better…(unless Allah Forgives them)….!!!!…..:)…….for he is Merciful….!!!

    the suicide bombers are poor people who are exploited and brainwashed by foreign agencies…given money to provide for their family's sustenance after they are gone…….they are then told to do what they do by these agencies…..!!!!

    So please don't undermine Muslims as if u know what they are all about…..!!!

    • komal

      u are right boy..i dun know who we get ride of narrow thought about us..we are peace lover.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "Islam is a relief for the whole mankind if it is followed properly…"

      The relief of death? Your problem is that you've assumed for no reason that you're pleasing God when you're not. Therefore all of the aggression of Islam will lead people only to harsher judgment, not the peace of paradise and virgins.

      Islam is the religion of hell's peace.

      "Islam does not encourage Fighting……It says never to start an attack or take an offensive stance……it tells us to defend and keep ourselves ready in the case we need to defend ourselves and our religion…..!!!! "

      Right, which justifies fighting offensively any time you're feelings tell you to. In objective terms, we're correct that it is a religion of offensive aggressive fighting and death.

      "Suicide bombers don't know better……Suicide of any kind is prohibited in Islam…..even if it is to stage war……So these suicide Bombers are going straight to hell if that makes you feel better…(unless Allah Forgives them)….!!!!…..:)…….for he is Merciful….!!! "

      Of course, but what we refer to objectively as suicide bombing to you is justified "defense" or "resistance" in the name of Islam. So it's just Doublespeak and you haven't refuted anything until you prove Allah is God and Mo was an authentic prophet (never mind "the final" one).

      "So please don't undermine Muslims as if u know what they are all about…..!!!"

      Many of us know even better than you, or you're simply lying.

    don't forget the westerns mostly occupied the world in history torturing and slavery.like america killing the indians abd the nazi of course the russian they all destroyed half of humanity..before judging know ur countries history and brutality they are the reason most of the muslim countries r in this conditions today..and the Israel who occupied Palestine on wat basis..now in there own country they r called terrorist

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "…don't forget the westerns mostly occupied the world in history torturing and slavery…"

      Don't forget we're the only ones that look at our history objectively and this allows you to quote selectively and then build lies on events that don't signify what you end up claiming.

      "like america killing the indians abd the nazi of course the russian they all destroyed half of humanity..before judging know ur countries history and brutality they are the reason most of the muslim countries r in this conditions today..and the Israel who occupied Palestine on wat basis..now in there own country they r called terrorist"

      You're obviously very confused by red-green propaganda.

  • muzzamil

    non muslim kills any 1 that is not terrorist ….as kyle said …. by the way most of the cristians and other non muslims are accepting islam ,…..why sooooo…..the answer is only one ..the islam is only peace keeping religion ….e.g yousuf estates ang many more …….before saying some thing u need to study about islam ….then write some thing ……

  • Abigail

    An issue is that many Muslims take their religion way too seriously, and kidnap, torture and murder those who dare criticise Islam. They're obsessed. People who believe in other religions, e.g. Buddhism or Christianity, don't start bombing buildings when their religion is attacked now, do they. Also, Muslim men are famous for groping women on the streets… everyone knows it.

  • this blog is a joke

    USA killed milion of iraqi, they created funded taliban,al qaeda. Where they intervened by the name of democracy these countries just been destroyed just like iraq, afghanistan, pakistan etc. USA killed in vietnam,iraq,korea,china,iran,costarica,haiti,gyana,congo,guatemala,combodia,equador,ghana,honduras,nicaragua,chad,panama,haiti etc. USA the #1 terrorist state, bush the #1 terrorist. Israel the highest UN regulation breaker. USA supports israeli terrorism. USA says "I'll kill your family, your relatives, then you'll be free, I'll give you freedom you just give me oil". USA is the main cause of unrest in this world, where there is unrest must be the cause is USA in most places.

  • Feras

    Those countries you listed are one of our lowest pits of islamic value, a majority of some of those populations are actually Christian as well. Besides the fact, those listed countries are even disliked by us in most views under islamic law. Don’t be too quick to judge a religious country without consulting someone with actual religious value to give an appropriate comment. Not simply judging an entire religion by a few countries that actually don’t value it at all. Good Day.

  • Michelle

    Having visited 54 countries in the last 8 years, with Pakistan and Algeria being 2 of our favourites, I can only wonder if you’ve actually ever been to any of the places you mention yourself or have just trawled the media and summarized what you’ve read. Neither my husband or I are Muslim yet we have always received outstanding hospitality in these countries and their friendliest certainly outshines many other purportedly friendly countries we’ve visited.
    We’ve also only ever heard positive reports from other travellers (in the region of 50 in the last decade) about Iran, most saying that the people of Iran are the friendliest they’ve ever experienced.

      AND THEN; They want to change those countries to be like….
      THE COUNTRY THEY CAME FROM WHERE THEY WERE UNHAPPY!

      Excuse me, but I can’t help wondering…
      How damn dumb can you get?
      Everyone seems to be wondering why Muslim
      Terrorists are so quick to commit suicide.
      Lets have a look at the evidence:
      - No Christmas
      - No television
      - No nude women
      - No football
      - No pork chops
      - No hot dogs
      - No burgers
      - No beer
      - No bacon
      - Rags for clothes
      - Towels for hats
      - Constant wailing from some idiot in a tower
      - More than one wife
      - More than one mother in law
      - You can’t shave
      - Your wife can’t shave
      - You can’t wash off the smell of donkey
      - You cook over burning camel shit
      - Your wife is picked by someone else for you
      - and your wife smells worse than your donkey
      Then they tell you that “when you die, it all gets better”??
      Well no shit Sherlock!….

    you should not blame a religion for the wrong doings of some people, for all religions in the world ask for peace and security, especially islam. not to mention your brutal comparison of north koreas ruler with mohammad as if you knew him as a person. This article is a result of lack of sources, lack if respect and hatred towards muslims.

    I have to say I agree – I live in Spain where there are a great many innovations left by 500 years of muslims ruling the country in the past; at that time the muslims brought in irrigation systems, great architecture and many other innovations like algebra into the south of Europe. Now they seem to be going backwards, covering their women more, becoming religious extremists and cutting themselves off from the rest of the world. In fact muslims are the most intolerant of other people´s cultures, if I visited Saudi Arabia I would have to cover my head and I´m pretty sure I would not be allowed to drive. What happened? In my opinion the muslims did not evolve nor mix well with other cultures. If you look at the map of the world, from North Africa into the Middle East nearly all of these countries are or have been at war over the past 20 years, and yes mainly muslims fighting with muslims for religious reasons. I really wish that muslims could find a better way to get on and evolve again, they have really beautiful parts of their culture and I would love to visit many of their countries but I am simply too afraid. What a shame.

    • Aryan

      Algebra was developed by Indians not muslims..
      Ever heard about the great Indian Mathematician “Aryabhata” …

      • Hilary

        The word “algebra” is derived from the Arabic word Al-Jabr, and this comes from the treatise written in 820 by the medieval Persian mathematician, Muhammad ibn Mūsā al-Khwārizmī, entitled, in Arabic Kitāb al-muḫtaṣar fī ḥisāb al-ğabr wa-l-muqābala, which can be translated as The Compendious Book on Calculation by Completion and Balancing. The treatise provided for the systematic solution of linear and quadratic equations.

            Can you send an actual link to an accredited historical page that proves this? If you don´t mind, I won´t be taking it as the truth from the person who calls themselves ´Truth´and talks about education using ´n´ instead of and, and “ur” instead of your.

            But even if it is the truth that India and Northern African Muslims came accross algebra at a similar time, that really is not the point. The point is that the Northern African Muslims brought it to Europe through Spain, they were innovatively ahead of the Europeans at the time. For a religion that was very developed, muslim extremists to be going back to the dark ages by limiting education, some banning it for girls and blocking information from the outside world. I am in support of good education for all children and adults to minimise religious wars and hatred.

          • anon

            You should read more about Islam and not what media portrays it to be. In Mecca, Saudi Arabia, it is the only place where people of the opposite sex can directly see eachother, and it is the only holy land in Saudi Arabia. This is not a problem of religion, it is a problem of culture. In fact, the Quran was the first holy book to introduce equality between the two sexes. The problem is that people of that culture speak of traditions in the name of religions when they are not supposed to because it gives the religion a bad image of something false. I just wanted to make that clear. :)

        • Nidhi

          Let me give your more comprehensive details:

          Invention of Zero

          1) Hindus of ancient India invented ‘Zero’, without which there would be no Binary system, no Computers and counting would be cumbersome.

          2) The earliest recorded date – And inscription of Zero on Sankheda Copper Plate was found in Gujarat, India (585 – 586 CE)

          The Hindu numeral system

          The present day decimal system in use all over the world was developed by Hindu mathematicians between the 1st to 5th century, but was in use in India since 500 BCE.

          This numerical system was adopted by Persians (Al-Khwarizmi’s circa 825 Book – ‘On the Calculation with Hindu numerals’) and Arabs (Al-Kindi’s circa 830 volumes – ‘On the Use of the Hindu numerals’), and was transmitted by them to Europe in the Middle Ages (11th to 13th Century).

          This numerical system came to be called as Arabic because the Europeans at that time were only aware of the transmitters, not the originators.

          Aryabhatt (476 CE) – Master Astronomer and Mathematician

          Heliocentric theory

          Aryabhatt was the first to proclaim that the earth is round, it rotates round it’s own axis and revolves round the Sun in it’s orbit in space 1000 years before Copernicus published his Heliocentric theory.

          Aryabhattasiddhanta circulated mainly through Northern India, and through the Sasanian dynasty (224-651) of Iran, also had a profound influence on the development of Islamic Astronomy.

          Aryabhatt invented the value of PI to four decimal places, namely 3.1416 & the sine table in Trignometry.

          Centuries later, in 825 CE, the Arab mathematician Mohammed Ibna Musa credited the value of PI to Hindus.

          Brahmagupta (598 CE – 665 CE) – Master Astronomer and Mathematician

          Brahmagupta gave the first rules for dealing with Zero as a number.

          His ‘Brahma-Sphuta-Siddhanta’ (628), an astronomical work, was translated into Arabic in Baghdad as ‘Sindhind’ (c. 771) and had a major impact on Islamic mathematics and astronomy. It’s 25 chapters contain several unprecedented mathematical results and laid foundations for algorithms and algebra.

          Discovered the Law of Gravity

          ‘Bodies fall on the earth because it is in the nature of earth to attract bodies, just as it is in the nature of water to flow’.

          Baudhyana (850 BCE) – Founder of The Pythagoras theorem

          It was Baudhyana who discovered the Pythagoras theoram.

          This theorem is explained in the Book called ‘Baudhayana Sulbasutra’ (800 BCE), one of the oldest books on advanced Mathematics.

          The actual Shloka in Baudhayana Sulbasutra that describes the Pythagoras theorem is given below:-

          ‘dirghasayak sa naya rajjuH parsvamani

          tiryaDam mani

          cha yatprthagbhUte

          kurutastadubhaya n karoti’

          Meaning – The diagonal of a rectangle produces by itself both (the areas) produced seperately by it’s two sides.

          Bhaskaracharya II (1114 – 1183 CE) – Genius in Algebra and Astronomy and A contributor to World Math

          In many ways Bhaskara represents the peak of mathematical and astronomical knowledge in the 12th century. He reached an understanding of calculus, astronomy, the number systems, and solving equations, which were not to be achieved anywhere else in the world for several centuries.

          He wrote ‘Bijaganita’ a treatise on algebra, in which he derived a cyclic ‘Chakravat’ method for solving equations of the form ax2 + bx + c = y, which is attributed to William Brouncher (1657).

          His book ‘Lilavati’ covers many branches of:-

          Mathematics

          Arithmatic

          Algebra

          Geometry

          Trignometry

          Mensuration

          His treatise ‘Siddhanta Shiromani’ on Astronomy contains results on Trignometry and Influential & Differential Calculus.

          Described Universal Gravitation in his treatise Siddhanta Shiromani8 (1150 CE).

          Bhaskaracharya describes that the earth attracts all objects in the sky by it’s own force towards itself.

          He further discusses the forces between the celestial bodies using a question:-

          Where can the celestial bodies fall since they attract each other ?

          Acharya Kanad (600 BCE) – Founder of Atomic theory

          He is venerated as the father of Plastic Surgery and the Science of Anesthesia.

          When surgery was in it’s infancy in Europe, Sushrut was performing Rhinoplasty (restoration of a damaged nose) and other challenging operations.

          In the Sushrut Samhita, he prescribes treatment for 12 types of fractures and 6 types of dislocations and also details 300 types of operations.

          The ancient Hindus were pioneers in: ‘amputation, caesarian and cranial surgeries’.

          Scalpels

          Lancets

          Needles

          Cathers and Rectal Speculums

          Transmission of the Hindu medical science to the Islamic world and Europe

          The medical works of Charaka and Sushrut were translated into the Arabic language during the Abbaside Caliphate (750 AD), and made their way into Europe via intermediaries.

          British physicians came to India to see and study the methods of rhinoplasty (Plastic Surgery) performed by local Hindus, using native methods.

          Joseph Constantine Carpue spent 20 years in India, studying rhinoplasty from local Hindus, and was able to perform the first major rhinoplasty in the western world by 1815.

          Instruments used in the Sushrut Samhita were further modified in the Western World. Even today, the paramedian forehead flap is referred to as the Indian flap.

          Nalanda University

          Nalanda University has been called as One of the first great universities of Recorded History of mankind.

          It attracted scholars from far off places like – China, Korea, Greece and Persia.

          It accomodated about over 10000 students, 2000 teachers and taught every branch of learning like:-

          Science

          Astronomy

          Medicine

          Logic to Metaphysics

          Philosophy (native and foreign)

          Sankhya

          Yoga Shastra

          Vedas

          Upanishadas etc

          Nalanda University was ransacked and destroyed by the rogue animals ie: The Turkic Muslim invaders under Bakhtiyar Khilji in 1193. The Persian historian Minhaj-i-Siraj, in his chronicle the Tabaquat-i-Nasiri reported that thousands of monks were burnt alive and thousands beheaded. The burning of the library continued for several months and smoke from the burning manuscripts hung for days like a dark pall over the low hills.

          Why did Europeans take over thousands of years to attain the level of abstract mathematics achieved by Indians such as Aryabhatta ?

          Europeans were trapped in a very simplistic and primitive geometrical mathematics developed by the Greeks. It was not until they had, via the Arab translaters, recieved the assimilated and advanced ‘Place value system of enumeration – generated and developed in India, by the ancient Hindus, that they were able to free their minds from the meek – primitive and simple mathematics and develop a more abstract system of thought.

          This development thus triggered the scientific and information technology revolutions which swept Europe, and later, the world.

          The role played by India in this development is no mere footnote, easily and inconsequantially swept under the rug of this Racial Eurocentric bias.

          To do so is to distort the brilliant history of the Hindus and to deny India the due credit of it’s greatest contributions to the mankind.

Reality is India is nowhere.You guys have the biggest slums in the world. you guys are physically weak and mentally living the fantasy world(Bollywood). you guys have no looks, no brain and the only thing you are good at is talk with no logic, source and proof.

    Muhammad (saw) was the cleanest man every to walk the earth.we as muslims are the cleanest people on earth because we follow his example. we make wudu 5 plus times a day and ghusul after any defilement. read the first books of sharia it is against the law for a muslim to be unclean.

    we don’t want you jews in muslim countries because u are filthy beasts worse than swine in both cleaniness of body mind and soul.

    why would you want to come to a muslim country anyway you kaffir your not wanted here.

    this jew Daniel greenfield should be focusing on his letters like a good jewish boy and not on radical islam
    little danny is obviously a homegrown terrorist in the making it is only a matter of time before what little danny greenfield has been focusing on starts focusing on him.tell me little danny greenfield when radical islam turns to you looking you in your face and asks “WHAT THE FUCK YOU LOOKING AT BITCH” what are you gonna do then
    radical islam will snatch the chain your mother gave you to adorn your neck and leave the garland your father gave you to adorn your head filled with lead.

    These men lie in wait for their own blood;
    they ambush only themselves!
    Such are the paths of all who go after ill-gotten gain;
    it takes away the life of those who get it.

    Express your views with respect to others beliefs, as a muslim myself I find it very offensive to insult prophet Muhammad. Say whatever you want but just respect the people with opposing point of views. You enrage muslims with insulting prophets they believe in and then call them dangerous? They are enraged about the racism they receive, and for me personally I’ve encountered many racist people but after insulting us they say we are dangerous crazy people. You shouldn’t speak about something you do not know about like a whole religion.

    • arguing_on_the_internet

      Islam is NOT a race. Get your facts straight. Criticising religious beliefs is NOT a crime in the west. We criticize other religions also but muslims are too full of themselves to notice it.

  • Robert Chahine

    This article is not only ridiculously racist, it is also based on false facts.
    All statistics shows that the top 3 countries where you will most likely to get killed or mugged are Honduras, Mexico and Brazil (all of them Christians).
    I have visited Lebanon, it is a beautiful country where Christians and Muslim live together in peace, don’t be fooled by the things you hear on the news or by ignorant article like this one.
