I am not worried about the Christian claim

in response to reader comment: Sixth Christian Rival: Corpus Separatum (Jerusalem)

Dear Dr Pipes, if there is a Christian claim on any part of Jerusalem, I am not that worried about that. There are many reasons: 1) Christians do not want to throw Israel into the ocean 2) Christians do not make treaties to buy time to launch attacks (as Muhammad did when he migrated to Medina), and 3) Christians have learned not to take the Bible literally. 4) there is very little history of Christians building their churches by destroying monuments of other religions. 5) even doctrinally, Jesus chose to be crucified and die instead of making treaties, causing wars, and winning battle . 6) Most Christians are not obsessed with propagating their religions all day long. 7) Unlike ALL of the Islamic world, most of the Christian world is democratic. There is just no comparison between Islam and Chistianity.
