Dear Rich,

All Muslims call Jesus as one of the messenger of Allah. This is written in our holly book. It is not my personal opinion. Therefore, I have right call him according to my religion.

Jesus himself as a Jewish but both Jews and his people never accepted as a messenger during his life time. Moses told Jews another messenger like him was to come. Jews was expecting another messenger. Although Jesus had many miracle they refused him like his own people.

You wrote that
"Mohammed was a polygamist ...while Jesus never had no such record."

First of all polygamy is not forbidden in Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Most probably such a record for Jesus is missing because He is accepted as God. He used to eat like us why not to marry like anybody else.

I copied the followings from a website which gives number of wives of holy people mentioned in Bible
-------------------------------------------------------------
Genesis 4: Lamech took two wives
Genesis 28: Esau takes an additional wife, Mahalath
Genesis 36: Esau takes two more Canaanite wives
Deuteronomy 21: Inheritance law when a man has two wives
Judges 8: Gideon had many wives
I Samuel 1: Elkanah and his wives Hannah & Peninnah
I Samuel 25: David takes Abigail and Ahinoam as wives
II Samuel 5: David takes further wives and concubines
I Kings 11: Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines (wow!)

You wrote that
"Mohammed treated innocent women like prostitutes by sleeping with them after killing their husbands and distributing them among his jihadis while Jesus saved prostitutes from criminal abuse and stoning."

Muhammed, peace upon him, was a statesman like Moses not like Jesus, who was just a messenger. Jesus's teaching was moral, not related to regulate society because he was Jewish. He was not a threat to ruling state at his life time.

You need to read history books before criticizing Muhammed, peace upon him. He establish first Islamic state and he was commander of holy fights to protect Muslims who are used to torture by pagan Arabs.

Free sex is common practice of western countries, But it is forbidden in Quran. Islam encourages marriage. Women are so valuable in Islam men can't touch them without marriage. Adultery is not only sin but also crime. Muhammed, peace upon him, married one of the slave women whom given money payment for marriage (mehir, a kind of dowry). Other Muslims followed him. Islam is a religion of social justice.
