You spesifically mention that Allah (your God) does not allow killing of of people, believer or non-believer. That in itself is a sin. Why is it then that Islam/Muslims have such a hate towards Isreal and Christianity? Everywhere in the world, Islam is trying it's utmost to suppress Christianity. We talk about tolerance, but there is no tolerance from muslims towards christians when it comes to the practicing of their respective religions. Just the mere fact that Islam reject the state of Israel, although the prophets of the Old Testament are mentioned (but not what they ever prophetised about Israel long before the time of Muhammed), puts a question mark behind Islam.

Freedom of speech and religion seems not to be tolerated by Islam. The western world must tolerate various religion types for the sake of "freedom of speech & association". I wonder what the reaction of the world would be if another country besides Israel, adopts christianity as the only religion and do not allow the practice of any other religion nor the building of temples other than christian churches. The outcry will be out of this world.

The ordinary muslim, ordinary christian seems to get along. Unfortuantly, the extreme side of the Islamtic faith do not project love, tolerance, peace and so on. It is all about submission, as if the individual do not have the right of choice, association, freedom of expression etc. The women are treated like slaves as if they have no rights.

It's no wonder that Jesus talked about the suffering of christians in His days and in the future.
