You can fantasize about Islam as much as you want, again this is a fantasy. To me Islam teaches mercy when you are able to be merciful, teaches love to those who love you but they have to be fiathful, teaches you to give zakat charity to muslims only, teaches you superiority that you hold the right faith and others are just confused but because you are much better than others then try to be nice with them. Islam is about logic, someone hits you hit him back, you can forgive only when you can, when you are in power and able to forgive, trust me I know what Islam is, and I am not saying that islam teach you to kill or to steal, however islam fails in so many aspects. It created a huge misconception about GODs ways of justice and uncoditional love.

There is no comparison between "Love your enemies" and " fight your enemies", the first one promotes your spirit to the level of GODs beauty, the second keeps you on earth, it is earthy and impulsive behaviour that lacks the heavenly teachings of the Christ. Muhammad was even less than normal, he has a logic that works to create a strong community and immune from outside threat, pay attention to this please and do not tell me that islam gave you peace, it may give you peace only if you want a catalogue to teach you what to do, when to do it and how to do it, if keeps you in a rigid boundaries that makes you think if you don't wash your body before prayers then GOD will not be happy with you and your prayer is not accpeted. If you have been a Christian then I am sure you know that the concept of Jesus death for our sins, doesn't mean that we can sin and then expect to go to heaven, what Jesus is asking from us is much more what Quran asks from muslims, I am sure you know that if you have been a true christian as you cliam.

Your arguments about christianity really shows that you either never been a christian or never knew what christianity is all about

Peace be with you and may god show you the truth because the truth from the lord Jesus Christ will set you free
