You say religious tolerance is part of chritianity. Are you sure of what you are saying? have you studied the history of the church? How about the inquisition? how about burning scientists which opposed the views of the church. How about the crusades and the mass killings of muslims in jerusalem. I am not inventing anything here. Just read history.

Please remember that when muslims entered jerusalem, not a drop of blood was shed. Christians were able to live peacefully under islamic rule. When you refer dhimmis, you make it sound as if it was torture and killing. Can you provide a proof of that? according to what I have read about the history of muslims in the wholy lands, it was all about respect for christians and jews. True they were living under shariah law. But it was all about justice and being dhimmis doesn't mean they were subject to any harrasment. It is well documented that when a chritian copt was beaten by the son of one of the muslims rulers in Egypt, that chritians filed a complained to the general muslim ruler who ordered that the christian father beat the muslim ruler in egypt. This is well documented in islamic history and you can search for it if yuo don't believe me. This is what islam is all about: Justice for all.
