You sound more like a Muslim apologist than a Christian one. So, you are either a Muslim pretending to be a pastor and therefore lying about your faith, or you are a Christian who truly has not taken the time to study Islam... the Koran and the Hadith.

The "atrocities" you mention in regards to "Christianity" were either by governments using the banner of Christianity to spread their powers i.e. the Crusades, or the Spanish Inquisition, or just plain unChristian as Hitler's Nazis, who happened to be steeped in Pagan/ Cultic practice. Irregardless, if you are a Christian, you can agree that none of their actions were fundamentally Christ-like actions.

However, if you read the Koran and Hadith, about Muhammad's life and actions, you will see that the Jihad of those who you claim are the minority, though AL Jazeera proved otherwise this year, are simply following Islam fundamentally. They are the correct Muslims and the moderates are the heretics. ON the flipside, heretical Christianity would be that of those who fight with the sword in order to spread the Gospel, or attain land, i.e. Crusades. As opposed to those who lay their lives down and are martyred for sharing that Y'shua ben Yosef is Messiah. Jesus told Peter to lay his sword down, for those who live by the sword die by it. The Holy Spirit is our protection, i.e. Armor of God.

BTW, I too have been to many Muslim countries and Bahrain is a really bad example to use because it is now today so moderate, but in the nineties is wan't exactly the safest place to be for anyone.
