"So I can PROVE that Islam is not violent against Christians or Jews "

I can prove the opposite more evidently

AMMAN, Jordan - Iraqi sisters Nasrin and Rihab enjoyed a relatively peaceful life in Baghdad until the night almost a year ago when militiamen tortured and beheaded their only brother.(note to muslim: the beheaders were muslims)

Their story is a chilling reminder of troubles faced by minority Christians in Iraq amid sectarian fighting between Shiite and Sunni Muslims. Churches have been bombed, and businesses — particularly hair salons and liquor shops _destroyed.
As a result, many Christians have joined the flood of Iraqis fleeing their country. There are an estimated 750,000 Iraqi refugees in Jordan, including about 2,000 Christians. An additional 1 million Iraqis have fled to Syria.

Jordan has been especially worried about the influence of Shiite refugees, who are seen as a menace to the country's security and predominantly Sunni character. But Christians — most are Chaldean Catholics — have also faced a tough time here.

Militants kidnapped their brother, Muhanna, tied him up in a deserted house and tortured him, then killed him.
"He tried to call us from his phone, but the line went dead," Rihab said. "They took his cell phone and made threatening calls to us. .. We realized that something terrible had happened."
Police later discovered his body.
"Now we have no one at all to care for us and protect us," wept Rihab, clutching pictures of the bloody body.
The sisters, neither married, can barely afford their $200 monthly rent here. They have no family left in Iraq. A niece lives in Australia; the sisters were recently denied permission to settle there.
Rihab believes Christians no longer have a future in Iraq, and thinks militants targeted her family because of their faith.
"'We will kill you, like we killed your brother,'" she said the militants threatened, over the phone, after the brother's death. "They shouted obscenities at us, telling us, 'You are Christians.'"
