Don't get me wrong, I'm not a fan of Islam either (or Christianity or pretty much any religion for that matter) but Christians hardly have any room to talk about how they are a bunch of peace loving victims.
Same here. I am not a fan of Islam either and I think that Christians are not anymore peaceful than Islam.

I love how they seem to think that they are though. Haha.

I won't deny that what they are doing is wrong - it is. But you posted this as though to say that islam is a greater cancer on the planet than christianity - and that simply isn't so.

Yes, it may have been decades ago that christians have done their things, but will you be so willing to overlook these actions as trivialy as you do now in a few decades? just because it was a long tome ago doesn't make it any less wrong or trivial.

But I guess that's how it is with religion and its followers - when they do it it's bad, when I do it isn't justifiable because it was a long time ago, or the cause was misunderstood, or because there was bias or some other excuse.

And in the end and a few hundred years from now people like you and I are going to be looking at the history of all these religions and realizing them for being the greatest cause of barbarism on the whole planet and all of this crap that has come from religion will show it to be just the way we see the greek/roman gods - obsolete.

And what now? Just because Christians haven't pulled something like this for a few years doesn't make you any less liable. Each time you condemn a religion on the basis of one being better than the other you further the wall of division between humanity. And if you think that doesn't contribute to situations like these - then there is nothing more I can say as you are totally lost.

So you're right, I'm not thinking about today and the here and now - I'm thinking about tomorrow.

You rock!!!!

How is this thread even 7 pages long?

Have you gotten any responses here from any arabs that could actually UNDERSTAND the youtube video???

I am confused. Was there some other link provided with an actual article?

I'll ask my Muslim Egyptian Father in Law and My Christian Egyptian Mother in Law (that have been married for over 30 years) what is going on with the Christian and Muslims over there next time I talk to him.

Then maybe I'll ask my DH what the Youtube video is all about.

Christian Arab, why didn't you give a summary of what's going on instead of linking a video that hardly anyone will be able to understand?
