It seems to me budi that you need to either revise your history, or rid yourself of the prejudices that have been initiated into your Islamic mindset. Yes, the majority of WWi and WWII was fought between Christians but what does this have to do with religion???

Where is it written in history that these wars were motivated by Christ? And to justify that 60 million deaths in a war is a reason why Christians are more evil, we need to understand here the population difference at this time between Muslims and Christians. At around this time, the vast majority of Europe, a significant amount of Asia and Africa, vast majority of South America, vast majority of Oceania and almost the entire North American population were Christian! While Islam was still a religion far behind in numbers than Christianity.

Do not forget that we Christians are human beings too, and we do not claim that we are gods, but we like you make mistakes and are sinners. Islam has itself caused MANY wars in this world whether within the Middle East or abroad...ever since its rise there hasn't ceased to be warship prevailing in the Middle East.
