Reader comment on item: Q&A: Remaking a Religion

GOOD DAY DANIEL

And here is what one of your paragraphs says:

Comparing Islam and Christianity—Christianity is a religion of peace with a founder, Christ, who is clearly a person of peace. In Islam, though, Muhammad was often a warrior. Is the basis of Islam naturally warlike after its founder? The basis of Islam is warlike, but that doesn't mean it has to be warlike.

I beg to differ. when we look at history and all that Christianity did to the Jews from the POGROMS to the INQUISITION, to only mention these two episodes, it saddens me to think that Chriswtianity is a religion of peace. Well we know how much islam did to also eradicate Jews since its birth till today.

Thus, the only comparison would be that none of these two are religions of peace by my standards

Where they differ however s that for Christians, Jews have been a GOD KILLERS while for Musims, Jews are PIGS that do not deseve to be dealt with but should be killed, as as lng as the central element in their culture is present, NOTHING wil be achieved.

AND NOW ANOTHER ONE OF YOUR PARAGRAPHS---You say:

In part that's because non-Muslim Europeans have few children, Muslims have many? There are three factors. First, demography: Women on average need to have 2.1 children to maintain a population, but in Europe right now it's about 1.4, one-third fewer children than are needed. The second factor is religion: the weakening of Christianity. Factor three is multiculturalism: no sense that your own culture is special, something worth fighting for and defending. Muslims have many children. They also immigrate. They have a distinct sense of the superiority of their civilization

I say, Muslims ae using the simple method called the REVENGE OF THE CRADLE

You see, they have all the time in the wolrd, thay are in no rush for they know that as long as they make babies, sooner or later they will outnumber us, thus gaining by their sheer numbers. We can talk of demography as much as we want but they know that at hte end, they will suceed. for, never ever will they consider what the Indians and Chineese did by reducing their birth to one per family

Sorry, we are not out of the woods
