in response to reader comment: when your house from glass don't throw others with stones

He did not just kill them, Guardian, he had them tortured to death: their hands and feet were cut off, with knifes, their eyes were burnt and they were left to die slowly in the sun.

To just kill them is what your standard warlord would have done--you have to impose respect. An inspired man of peace would have prevent the whole ordeal: he would have seen that they were not trustworthy and would have them better surveilled. Your prophet acted like a clueless sadistic terrorist, pure and simple.

I'm not a Christian, or a Jew, and my country never invaded any other land. But anyway, what Christians have done doesn't excuse Muslims' crimes. And according to the best record we have, Muslims killed some 270 million people in jihads, making countless slaves—even using them for their wars—in the process.
