Muslims or Christians?

If you ask a Jew who they would want to live next to, Christians or Muslims, they will reply, '' Depends on what century you are speaking of.''

.....
As a Mizrahi Jew, the answer is Christians for a majority of the time over the past 2000 years. Even if you bring it down to start counting from the fall of the Ottoman Empire the answer would be Christians. If you bring it down to the the last 66 years, its mostly Christians followed by Arabs who happen to be Muslims. But these Arabs did not do what they did in the name of Islam, but in the name of personal greed. If you bring it down to the last 47 years one has to dig through the khara in order to get to the truth behind what is actually seen.

The Holocaust was a fairly recent event, and it involved Christianity. The Hoiocaust could not have happened without 2000 years of anti-Semitism in Christianity


If the point is to show to show Muslims as killers, and a Christian tries to push this point, do they then forget about all the killings and terror in the name of God that they committed?

Just saying, I aint trying to bring down Christianity, it's just a point of perspective.


Nobody should commit acts of terror but people do, and they don't do it just in the name of Islam.

Christianity is also guilty of horrendous unspeakable things.

Your assertion that the practice of Islam is not based on the Quran is not supported

To live under oppression goes against human nature---does not matter who is the oppressor, Taliban, ISIS, West,....it will create unrest in society. To create peace one must have a society that promotes Equality (of all humanity), Justice (with compassion and mercy) and Liberty (with responsibility).

And that is not Islam, by a longshot.
