Well said! If "Jesus said it best" Arif, then listen to him - the Son of God; instead of, some prophet who lived a life quite opposite that of Christ. About the crusades, the Muslims started the crusades if you actually go back to the beginning of them. (That seems to not be mentioned these days with our current pc "filters" we have.) Not that what others did was O.K. beyond defending themselves and their land - it is just that history should be reported accurately. A

s far as a peaceful religion, of the 30+ "hot spots" with fighting in the world today, every single one is because of Islam. This has been their history (even fighting amongst themselves (Shia and Sunni, etc.)) since the death of Mohammed. A look at how they treat women -compared to how Jesus did- is insightful as well.

There is a more peaceful way to live and America has shown it for a long time. Not that it is perfect, no nation of people is perfect. However, we can know this: America has freed more millions of people from tyranny and slavery, fed and clothed more millions of people around the world, and restrained ourselves from the use of our overwhelming force in terms of conquering other countries far better than any other powerful nation in the history of the world. Quite a list for the crummy place France and many others are making us out to be these days. The final proof of our good heartedness is that in the face of man-made or natural tragedy, the entire world always looks to the USA to respond first and pay for it all. We usually are quite happy to oblige -- and that is what Jesus teaches us to do.
