I am shocked with the intelligence level of people in terms of knowing mankind history. Great civilizations affect their neighbours and enlarge their lands. People should read the history of empires, kingdoms, colonised African, Asian, Latin American countries etc, before saying that Islam is not peaceful. How about world wars which changes world map? Medieval crusades, which was military expeditions against Muslims? Is that forgotten?

Christians who can be called as apostate Jews never followed the teaching of Jesus who was Jewish. It wouldn't have existed so long if pagan Roman Empire accepted the Hellenic version of Christianity, adapted by Paul. Is there any idea how Roman Empire extended its land? Did they send polite letters saying do you mind living under my power and paying tax or did they invade those areas? Catholic Rome is not different than any other ancient Greek cities. The only difference is that statues of male Gods are replaced with that of Jesus or other holly people. Christianity has shameful historical events like Inquisitions, especially for scientists. Christianity don't run western society, having secular governments, any more. Christianity? Where is Christianity? Who listens to Pope? Any peaceful effort from the new Pope? Not really.
