Maddened Muslim Mobs

In Damascus, for example, in 1840, with a pogrom against Jews.

In Damascus, again, in 1860, against Christian Maronites.

In Baghdad, for example, in 1941, during the Farhud, with city-wide attacks on Jews.

In Cairo, against Copts and Jews, in 1941, following fiery speeches by Hasan Al-Banna, founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, grandfather of Tariq Ramadan.

In Tripoli and Benghazi, in Oran and Algiers, and in cities of Pakistan where Shi'a, Ahmadis, and Christians have been subject to mob attacks, and in Indonesia against Christians and Hindus in island after island, and in Nigeria, in the north and now in the center of the country, too, as Islam expands, against Christians in Kano and Jos, and in Pakistan, by Sunnis against Shia, Ahmadis, Christians, from Karachi to Quetta, and....oh, it's something you can fill up pages with, and you can do the research yourself. 

And in Mandatory Palestine, before the Jews had weapons and training and could defend themselves, attacks from Tel Hai to Jerusalem in 1921 (with Bertie Waters-Taylor, an English officer, egging the Arabs on even as he carefully made sure the Jews were defenseless), too, and of course in Hebron, in late August 1929, as recorded in the headline, for those who've forgotten that history,  here.
