Christians vs. Muslims

Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?

Submitted by 24C, Belgium (Belgium), Nov 7, 2005 at 14:00

All the 3 major religions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) have the same roots.
Muslims believe Muhammed (or Ahmed) was the last prophet.
Christians don't believe Muhammed is Ahmed or the last profet.
And Jews don't believe Jesus was the Messias and don't beleive Muhammed was Ahmed (he last prophet).

Muslims believe that Jesus could not have been sent by god because they don't believe his resurrection, even though many people have witnessed this. And they laugh at the fact that jesus offered his second cheeck after he got slapped. They think what kind of great man offers himself to be hurt for a second time towards someone who wants to hurt him. Also they think what kind of great man will suffer himself in the dessert for 40 days, even while they fast themselves during the Ramadan month.

Muslims say that they are a very peaceful people and that muslims will never hurt somebody, unless somebody hurts them.

And this is the biggest difference! Jesus teached his followers that you should not punish a man because of his ignorance. And showed this be offering hi's second cheek. And by saying "he who is without sin, can throw the first rock" knowing that nobody will throw a rock because they feel guilty about themselves.

And this part is the reason why there is terrorism. they think western society is willing to hurt them.

The latest riots in france and the growing 'hate' that grow among some young muslims towards christians all over city's in europe, proves this fact.

Also,they must not forget that not arabs (muslims) but western civ. (christians) have proven enough in histroy that they have conquered they world much more than the persian empire or the otoman empire or the mameluke empire. Proven enough by the Roman empire; the greek empire; the vikings; the Gauls; Brittania; North- and Latin America (discovered and conquered by western european christians) and that is only for western europe. Even the Nazi's (luckely they didn't succeed). Christians may have never conquered the desert, there was nothing there so why would they want it, off course today there is oil and some might say the war in Iraq is because of the oil, why else doesn't america invade africa where humans rights have been violatted much more and more frequently.

All of this is just a hint towards "some" muslims that believe they are attacked by Christians. Christians don't care what religion an other man has because they know the ignorant man should not be punished. But they have proven enough that if others try to hurt them that THEY WILL TURN THEIR CHEEK but when they have turned their cheek too many times they simply go over to extermination. Also proven enough in history (Jews, Inca's, Maya's) and of course the crusades.

I'm writing this because i'm concerned that if the riots in france expand (which already has, slightly), that they will not know what hit them. People will vote for "extreme right" and suddently the millitary will have to come in. That they should realize that this whole stupid thing here will cause a third World War. And that this time America and Russia will not fight against these actions but rather support them.


But be aware when the line is crossed, that it will not be as they expected ... And fascism lies within every person, every person only want the good and don't want the bad. ( as in what one thinks is good and what one thinks is bad). The war agaisnt communism was also fascism.

I'm getting tired off all this typing. Just rember this: we r all made of flesh and blood and breathe the same air, and we have the same roots!

They say God or Allah will only be helpfull to the ones that truly believe.bSo in a way he's not able to help the ones who don't believe. Then he is certainly not able to punish you!

The written religion is just a drugs for the people so they act the way you want them to ...

If you think of it, it's even safer and smarter not to believe, but to just know that you shall respect your fellow man.
