You blithely equate Christians and Muslims as equally guilty of killing - wrong.

"Yes there are bad Christians who kill; there are bad Muslims who don't kill." This is a very simplistic equation at not at all accurate at present or in history. At worst, Christians are apostate and fail to obey in loving their fellow man enough to die in the process of living out and spreading Christ's gospel. The Muslims obey in slaughtering, raping, bombing, plundering, and torturing even their own factions. The Christians squabble and rant against one another with rare historical exceptions rather than the Muslim practice all throughout their history of terrible violence all around.

There are Christians who have kiiled but to equate it as a matter of belief or even representative, is very incorrect. Study the two books - the Bible and the Quran, and the histories of the two peoples. Muhammad's latter teachings hold entire sway and call for absolutely any heinous measure at all to subject all infidels. In practice wherever they hold power, that is exactly what they do. Their entire populations are either complicit or actively involved. This is nowhere near reality in Christian nations. Your equation is grossly exaggerated to equate the two religions historically and presently.
