Just two little places in the world where forced Muslim conversions occur.

Here in the US, we have 3,500 mosques, How many synagogues do you have in Jordan?

Look, I am Jewish, and I know there are good people who are also Muslims. I have had many close friends who are Muslim. i'm sure that you and I could become friends.

However, how many Muslims openly embrace Jews as their friends? Jews and Christians believe one should "Love thy neighbor."

How many Muslims not only believe it, but put it into practice?

Why do so many Muslims hate Jews, and by extension, Christians as well?

Don't even mention the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, becuase even if there wasn't a single Jew in Palestine, this hatred would still exist as it has existed for the past 1,000 years.

I know it is hard for you to imagine, let alone accept, that this hatred exists in your country and all over the world.

If you wish to make your case, prove me wrong. Show me where in the Muslim world a Jew can live in peace?

Until you can do so, then I will continue to say that Muslims and Christians have some very different views about peace, love, and tolerance.

But, please, do not take it personally, because I know you are an exception to the rule.
