There are many many predominantly Muslim countries that are not 
warlike.  A lot of them are in Asia.  One litmus test seems to be 
whether a separation of religion and state is largely in place.   There 
are secular countries whose populations are predominantly Muslim and who 
have no intention whatsoever of instituting sharia or jihad.  Just as 
Christianity got past (mostly) its convert them or kill them phase so 
Islam is doing.  Just not as throughly yet.
