To be fair, Friends (especially the liberal Friends) are generally staunch pacifists. This article is a demonstration of that.

The only downside is that Friends are a minority in the world of Christianity, however there does seem to be a stronger tradition of pacifism in Christianity than there is in Islam. It is important to note however that this might simply be because I am less aware of the tradition of nonviolence in Islam.
