i am a 16 year old christian girl from britain and my best friend is a muslim. We both have our own opinion on each others religions and often disagree but we have never fought about it because we have accepted the differences between them. I believe there is one god and that allah and buddah and every other god ever believed in is all the same person and religion are just the branches that he calls to us to hold onto if we need saving or helping. Any conflict or wars that have happened occured thousands of years ago and none of us were there none of us! So why is this stupid war still going on? Because of arrogance, although muslims believe in jesus they deny the truth of the bible, it is ok saying that some bits are exaggerated because many christians will agree but denying it all together is arrogance! And christians we bear a grudge against the muslims for everything under the sun nowadays.

Yes we hate them for the way they treat women, al quaeda the list is endless. We need to stop generalising people. Not every muslim man treats his wife like rubbish not every muslim has a part to play in al quaeda,not every christian slags of allah and depicts mohammed in a blasphemic way. Scriptures say that the end of time will come by the war from muslims and "non believers" . Nobody on this planet seems to understand that allah is god he is buddah he is all of them. THERE is one GOD. Afghanistan could be the beginning of the end. Our brothers and sisters killing each other and why? Arrogance and Grudges and greed do you think our lads want to be out there murdring people just like them? No. Wake up people. It is my generation that has to pick up the pieces that you elders have made of the world. So let me and my best friend be a guide to you all. There can be peace between us all, no more fighting, no more deaths, no more bombings, no more torture. No matter what religion you come from we all have sins, all of you watch the news and see the wars between us and ask yourselves what would God think of us now? He'd be disgusted we might think we are fighting for his honour but in reality we are murdering his people. Christians we are all part of the one bread. Muslims Allah created all. Not all muslims or all christians ALL People! And we are destroying one another. Even if you aren't fighting and agree with me then what are we doing to stop the fighting? Waiting for it to end because the reality of it is it won't and the end of time will come because of it. If you ask me thats too big a sacrifice even if its inevitable God gave us our lives and we must do what we can within them to stop and look, forgive and forget and create a new world where muslims, christians and jews and every other religion ever known to the world can put down their weapons and walk to the kingdom of heaven hand in hand.
