what exactly are you referring to?
He means that no one is getting shot up in Iraq in the name of Jesus, the Christians are the victims there.

And looking back through history makes it evident that Islam is hardly the only religion that's had its violent radical practitioners.
Is that one of those two wrongs makes a right answer?

No, it's one of those two wrongs make two wrongs, pretty obvious when you look, eh?

Get the facts, don't just make assumptions based on what you see in online media.
That depends on where you get your news and what your bias is...
Over half of the arrests in France in 2013 were for religious inspired terrorism, many of which were related to financing and recruitment.

Why don't you show us your source, since France has the 3rd highest crime in all of Europe which sat at nearly 4 million out of a population of 66 million people. Since the Muslim population of France sits at around 5 million people, so what are you insinuating?

Just seems like Islam has so much violence eye for an eye type of mentality.

You see the Gulf War as a nationality vs religion and that is not true. It was nationality vs nationality. Iraq vs United States. Not Islam. Majority of the Muslims weren't even around that area and did not care except for the fact that the war was a terrible waste of money that could have been better put to use in the United States. Same thing with the more recent conflicts of last decade.

Jerusalem did not belong to the Jews. It doesn't belong to anyone or all three Abrhamic faiths. If you read the passage where it says the Jews "deserve" their land, it is through the doing of good deeds. It's also mentioned that God will test them if they are to falter. But no where did it say that the U.S and U.K will help you artificially create a land by splitting up an already existing civilization. Modern day Israel is based of Zionist principles which has no basis in the religion of Judaism. Jews were already living peacefully (although under British occupation) before WWII. They were only persecuted in large numbers in Europe and even America.

As a Christian, I'm surprised you seem to indirectly be in favor of Jews. Have you forgotten other than Judas who betrayed Jesus and asked for his death to the Roman rulers? His own people, the Jews.

Prophet Muhammad stopped by Jerusalem because it is the 3rd holiest site in Islam. It serves as a significant place in the religion. It is the region of several prophets which I'm sure you also know of through their stories in the Bible. But the question you ask is arbritary. Have you asked yourself why there even needs to be a rapture? Why not just right now? Why does an event have to occur just for the conclusion to happen?

Using children to execute prisoners on TV. Kidnapping young girls in Africa and using them as suicide bombers. Offering virgins in heaven for martyers.

The religion of peace.
