You obviously do not know alot of reasons Adem why their is so much dislike by Christians of Muslims and Adem their are alot of Muslims whom actually convert to Christianity as well and other religions. I Know Muslims who dislike their own religion but are fearfull to change as they feel they will be harmed. Adem it is also a little mind that is stuck in a Ivory tower to state Most of the scientists and most popular individuals are Muslim, if you truely looked beyond your Islam, you would find a extremely large number of well known scientists, popular individuals, writers and painters that come from many numerous religious identities that are "NON MUSLIM". The world is filled with Non Muslims that are well known people.

I find too if you truely look for the reasons why Christian dislike Muslims you would find

1. Muslim whom migrate to the west then criticise it are seen as hypocrites as if you don't like it here why did you come anyway.

2 Muslims who state we want a Islamic state in Western Countries are seen as hypocrites, dictators and disrepect our culture and Chrsitian religion. Thus, we look at them as fools since they choose to migrate here freely and can leave anytime if they don't like it.

3 When we hear and know of Muslims who come out and state if we change our religion we will be killed or harmed and know of Muslims who are bullied because they don't pray the required times or eat Al hala meat etc. we think of Muslims as Dictators and Fanatics.

4 When Muslims state they are for "Peace and Love" and the Koran speaks of wife beatings Sura 4:34, Not to be friends with Jews or Christians Sura 5:51 and crucifixion, cutting hands & feet off 5:33-34, Kill Spread Islam Sura 4.74, we think of you as violent, barbarians, backstabbers, racist, murders, hypocrites, 2 faced (Ten commandments Thou shall not kill), untrustworthy and treacherous.

5 When Non Muslims hear of a tax called by Islamic law Jizya placed on Non Muslims in some parts of the Middle East we think of islamic discrimination, intolerance and dislike. We ask ourselves isn't a tax system for all people living under the same country no matter what race, religion or culture they are. It is ridiculous to have 2 tax laws one for Non Muslims and the other for Muslims.

6 Although the Koran says moral rules like don't kill and don't steal and don't lie this only applies between Muslims - Muslims can kell Non Muslims, take the property of Non Muslims as tribute, take their wives, or make Non Muslims slaves -The many Christians, Jews and other Non Muslims see this as Demonic and Evil behaviour.

7 When we hear of some religious Muslims and terriorists harm or kill others and say "It's Allah's will" , "Allah be praised"and"Allah is great" Christians and other Non Muslims think their nothing more than Psychopaths, mentally ill, violent fanatics, Demons, Evil, breakers of the Ten Commandments, intolerants, haters of the west, Christians and Non Muslism everywhere.

8 When some of as here a minority of Muslims stating altered historical facts for example democracy came from Islam and the Middle East. we think of some of you as ignorant, arogant, misguided and liers since it is well documented all over the world the West recieved their democratic ideas from Greece.

9 Non Muslims think of a lot of Islamic people as women haters, haters of the West and haters of Non Muslims

10 When some Muslims state they believe in the Bible as the word of God and call Jesus a prophet it is rather misguided and hypocritical as no one can state their belief in the Bible without also believing Jesus as "King of Kings, Lord of Lords" and the divne son of God. These Muslims need to re-evaluate their belief.

11 When Muslims think of the Holy Trinity as Three Gods some Christians belive in 3 Gods criticise and insult such a belief . It is obvious they are misguided, have miscommunicated the message and have no depth.

12. When Muslims state Jesus is not a son of God, you will be looked upon as misguided and blasphemous in the Bible.

13 When we hear of the Ottaman Islamic genicidal murders of the Armenian and failure of the many of the people in the Islamic world and Turkey to recognize this we think of this behaviour as the true face of islam violent, barbaric, blood thristy, murderous, Evil, Demonic and unrepentant to God. We look upon such behaviour with sorrowfulness, unhappiness and feel so sorry that the Armenians had suffered such a abomination under Islamic fanatical people. However, Christians believe if it's happened before it can happen once again and this is why we distrust Islam. Further we Christian are disgusted at all genicidal acts.

14 Some Muslims though they are against terrorism, still hold slight terrorist ideals and extremist behaviour and even side with what the terrorists are doing

15. A lot of young muslim youth that have migrated to the West believe they do not have to abide by the rules and law of their migrant country as only Islam applies. This is where you are looked upon as traitors and disrepectful brats.

16 Many people think of Muslims as trouble makers and are people that cannot be trusted with women.

17 Many see a lot of Muslim youth as cowards because many of them fight in one person in a large group and if they had to fight a one on one they wouldn't do it. I've even seen a muslim man want to fight a women. this is seen as a disgusting display.

18 We hear that if a Muslim kills a Non Muslim in some countries they won't be prosecuted and some of us hear and read many contraditions in the Koran. This is why you are not trusted and find you 2 faced

19 We hear of Honour Killing and think Babarians, Murderers, intolerant, women haters, pridful people (7 deadly sins) and see this behaviour as disgusting.

20 some people that are Non Muslims think of Islamic people as inbreed since we hear of marriagers between brothers and sisters, cousins, uncles and Aunties (people of the same blood.DNA) this looked on as dirty, fithy, disgusting and can cause deminished intelligence, life expectancy, health and can cause violence in some.

I could go on and on and on. These are just a few of what many think and some of the reason why Non Muslims dislike Islam
