I think this question is too general to be good. It can be answered, just 
as any question can, if one wants it. But that doesn't mean the answer 
will have anything to do with reality.

It is interesting to see, how you try to put me in a situation when I will 
have to make some general remarks about Muslims. This is not going to 
happen because I cannot make such remarks without proper data supporting 
them. Since it is difficult to get to know more than bilion people, I 
could content myself with results of research giving me some clues about 
the whole. But I didn't have time to look for them.

I think that Muslims commiting crimes are on par with Nazis commiting 
crimes. As of other Nazis, some of them (those caught) have been tried in 
Nuremberg. I don't see reason to mix them with criminals, if the court 
didn't find such reason. As of non-criminals among Muslims, I don't know 
enough about them to judge them.
