For people who beat up on Christianity every time any criticism is made of Islam, here is a video that might open your eyes:

Judaism and Christianity are beautiful religions, no need to bash them up every time people want to initiate a discussion.

Great video. It takes a lot of courage to leave Islam. She made the right decision.

The interviewer says that Darwish's father "was killed in the name of Jihad" - but her father was killed by Israeli commandos. The way she said it I thought he was killed by other Muslims but he was a jihadist killed attacking Israel.

yes, but he was fighting in the Jihad. It would be different if he was at home reading the paper and an Israeli stormed in and shot him

"There is nothing that America has, or has not, done that causes terrorism".

? ? ?

Her last remark is . . . questionable?

America did Waco - Tim McVeigh did America.

Christianity is the lesser evil, that much is true, but beautiful?!

Kill your family members. If someone is gay, murder them. Its ok to sell your daughters. Women shouldn't wear mans clothing, etc, etc, etc.

I can go on and on with the awful things that are recognized by all three of Abrahams religions.

Just because most people don't practice the torturous parts of Christianity and Religion, doesn't mean they are beautiful. Most Muslims don't practice the worst parts of their religious texts either.

I've got news for you. There are people in Africa today who are raping, murdering, and destroying everything in their path, all in the name of Christ.

Third world countries will always have that behavior, religion is just the excuse.

That is very true. There are Christian groups throughout Africa that do witch burnings, fairly frequently. There is nothing in the slightest that is beautiful about that.

Nor is Judaism beautiful. If you look at the Old Testament, it is almost as bad as Islam.
And it makes people do bad things. I just read about Eli Zvieli, a Jewish Holocaust survivor living in Israel. He is fighting the widespread Jewish racism against Arabs. He gets insults and death threats from his fellow Jews, who decided to isolate him because he lets rooms to Arab students. On benches it says, no dogs, pigs, or Arabs.
