"In that case jesus(pbuh) would be more perfect because of his virgin birth right? but as you said to before that even he made mistakes. "

jesus didn't engage in sex with children, and didn't kill anybody, didn't steal anything from anybody.

I don't care about his birth. What you DO makes you a worthy human being, not WHAT YOU ARE. Another thing that muslim cannot comprehend, since they hate people for what they are (christians, jews, hindus) rather than for what they achieved and did.

"Yes the koran talks about killing,christians and such but one needs to understand that this wonderful world we live in can be very violent. fighting,killing,rape,hurt,pain been going on since the human race began."

jesus didn't kill, rape or hurt anyone.

"the koran speaks about the past when efering to christains and jews when you read the quotes. "

the jihad is NEVERENDING. quote me the passage where it says that jihad is a thing of the past and submitting jews and christians as dhimmis is a thing of the past.

"besides the koran preaches education.loyality,justice,peace for all mankind not just muslims. "

no it doesn't. It preaches that non muslims can convert, die or pay the jyza, while non-monotheist religions have only 2 choices, die or convert.

You can see this because in EVERY single one of the 50+ muslim majority country there is this in their everyday life. Every other religion cannot express itself even if they are 0,00001% of population.

And it's not that 100% of those countries are poor and illiterate. NO WAY.

What do I have to gather from knowing that 100% of times when you have a muslim majority you have no freedom of religion? That it's all about islam

there is NO way that islam is compatible with human rights, live and let live philosophy and co-exist with other religions.

"then again islam means peace in arabic,"

islam means submission , not peace.
