We in America believe that two wrongs do not make a right. Muslims cannot justify their actions in the 21st Century by pointing to ours in the 18th and 19th Centuries. We abolished slavery 200 years ago. Every single person in this country is free to practice whatever religion he or she chooses. The Catholic Church stopped burning heretics at the stake over 500 years ago. Europe ended its colonial policies a long time ago. The Western world has embraced the 21st Century and has adapted to it.

Where is the Muslim world headed? Back to the 7th Century.

It is said that one can judge a tree by the fruit it bears. If one were to look at all of the fruit that Islam has borne against the Jews, ll would all be rotten. Everything that Muslims are taught about Jews is a lie:

JEWS DO NO USE THE BLOOD OF MUSLIM CHILDREN TO MAKE BREAD.
JEWS ARE NOT SUB-HUMAN AND ARE NOT THE DESCENDENTS OF MONEKYS AND PIGS.
JEWS DO NOT WANT TO KILL ALL MUSLIMS.
JEWS ARE NOT BENT ON WORLD DOMINATION
JEWS ARE NOT TAUGHT FROM CHILDHOOD TO HATE MUSLIMS
JEWS DID NOT MAKE UP THE HOLOCAUST AS A WAY TO STEAL LAND FROM MUSLIMS

Any religion that has to resort to such a litany of lies in order to perpetuate itself MUST itself be a lie.

-end of story.
