I've read your response about wars....

Can't say vietnam war was a religious one.

Can't say Hiroshima was bombed for religious reasons.

The crusader wars, (as it was actually more then 1 army)... Yes, that was a religious one.

Was A response to actions like pillaging, murder and rape allready committed by your beloved infidel followers also called Arab Muslims. (Hey, you call others infidels, why should we not call you just the same thing from Christian, Jew, Hindoe, etc... point of view?)

So the infidels where driving by sword the believers out of their holy lands. AND invading their lands from both the South- West and the South-east. some famous figures helped stop the march of infidels like Count Vladimir Dracula and El Sid.

But back now to the crusades. The Pope hearing of those attrocities commited by infidels in his most holy lands. Called upon all men of good faith to free it from these Bandits and child molesters.

The result: The crusade army's took form. the went to the Holy lands and killed many of those infidels, but had a hard time freeing the holy lands from these bandit infidels as well... neverthe less Godfried of Bouillon was one of those army leaders who was able to accomplish this task for a while.

You see the crusaders where FREE men of faith fighting for their holy lands as no king or warlord asked them but the Holy Pope did.

The other wars you use as excuses where not asked for by any religious leader.

The president of the US is no religious leader. So he's actions are not linked to any faith.

But in Islam and with Muslims there leader actions ARE linked to there faith.

A verry powerful difference.

Also you try to use the crusades as justification for actions done at present times by muslims?

Are you therefor saying muslims are backwardly living in the same mental state as the crusaders where back then? that Muslims haven't evolved yet beyond that point?

another difference:

1. actions of some religious founders:

-Jesus didn't murder or pillage.

- Abraham didn't murder or pillage

- Boedha, didn't murder or pillage

-Muhammed DID murder and pillage.

2. Laws or rules to live by from religions:

- christians do not seek to put their laws as the only one applicable in the lands they reside in.

- Jews do not seek to put their laws as the only one applicable in the lands they reside in.

- Muslims DO SEEK to put their laws as the only one applicable in the lands they reside in and even more... they apply their laws upon lands they don't live in as well.

Need more examples?

feel free to ask.
