Violence in Islam, but ...

There are millions believing that Islam causes violence and thus should be defeated. But then what about Christiantiy, Judaism. Are the ones in America who killed millions of native Indians for gold, money and land. Were not they Christians? Who cause the sufferings in Africa today? Christians?
How Israel treats their neighbours? Are not they Jews?
Thus the violence is in the hearts of man. Moreover, Jihad in Islam is only a mechanism in Islam to protect the being from such violent man. But of course there are some extremists bombing innocents and call this as Jihad. They are wrong but do not blame Islam for that, blame the westeners bombing Iraq and killing 1 million man to bring democracy to boost such extremist Islamic activity.
This was only a game plotted by global rules to fight against Islam as it is the only religion (because of Quran which can not be demolished) which can stop them. Think about it.
If you are a truth seeker, read Quran as an objective person not as a Christian or Jew or Hindu.
All real believers to God are brothers not enemies. So if you believe in God for sure, then do not see other belivers as enemies. We are all trying to do the right deeds and save ourselves from punishment.
If you say that you are Christian, Muslims love Jesus. If you say you are Jew, Muslims love Moses.
If you say you are truth seeker, read Quran objectively and understand it as a human being not as a Christian. You are a human. Not Christian or Jew. By the way, Islam means peace. Muslim means the person who submits himself to Allah only, nothing else. Just free yourselves from the titles.
