Who are you to say who is/isn't a Muslim, or anything else? There many interpretations and branches of religion. If somebody identifies him/herself with a certain religion, then he/she is regardless who likes it or not. Nobody ever said that Nazis,KKK, etc. were NOT Christians because of their views/actions. Their views/actions were viewed separately from their religion. Nobody disputed the Crusaders were not "real" Christians. However you seem to have the power within you to judge who is a "real" Muslim and who isn't? Interesting
"If somebody identifies him/herself with a certain religion, then he/she is regardless who likes it or not. " Wrong, if you claim to be of a religion but you do not follow the religion correctly then you are not.

"Nobody ever said that Nazis,KKK, etc. were NOT Christians because of their views/actions." You do not know much about the Nazis do you? Their long term aim was to eradicate Christianity in the areas they controlled, Martin Bormann, Joseph Goebbels, Alfred Rosenberg, Heinrich Himmler led this strategy. See the Donovan documents for details.
70% of the SS officers withdrew from their Christian denominations.
18% of Polish Catholic priests were murdered by the Nazis, 2,600 Catholic priests murdered in Dachau.
When a protest statement was read from the pulpits of Confessing churches in March 1935, for example, Nazi authorities reacted forcefully by briefly arresting over 700 pastors.
After the 1937 papal encyclical Mit brennender Sorge ("With burning concern") was read from Catholic pulpits, the Gestapo confiscated copies from diocesan offices throughout the country.

You also do not know much about the KKK! They claimed to be Protestant Christians but "virtually every" Protestant denomination officially denounced the KKK
