ISLAM:

CHRISTIANITY:
"Love thy neighbour."

Whilst I can see that much of the teachings do not emphasize the killing of those from other faiths and beliefs, there is a thread running through the "words of Allah" which, at least to any Catholic, sound very much like the words ...

Terrorize people, beat them into submission; these do not sound like the words of a loving God. And, indeed, the majority of Muslims wouldn't want this to happen, but the numbers of those who are reading and learning towards this dangerous teaching are increasing.
