Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I would point you to Sarajevo before 1990, Beirut in the 1960s, Tehran and Baghdad in the 1960s.

Indeed. And you could probably add Cairo to your list, at least during some periods of the 20th century.

But there's also a lot of phony history in the view of Islam as clean as the driven snow. On balance, I think you'll find it hard to argue that Islam is better or worse than Christianity. Which, OTOH, is not exactly a recommendation...
