Alexander the Great was around before Jesus and Muhammad (may Allah bless them both) circa 340BC!

The fire you are talking about is probably the great fire at Alexandria, various people have been credited with destroying the library there, including Julius Caeser (ie BC), and Christians as late as the 5th centruy AD (ie before Islam). So what are you talking about?????

Yes people do things that are wrong. killing civilians is wrong, especially if done on purpose (as oppsosed to by "accident" with collateral damage), does this mean that I hate or blame all Christians beacuse a christian, Bomber Harris thought it would be a jolly good idea to kill workers in their homes because that was cheaper than destroying their factories... not just german civilians, but all the slave labor in germany too and the occupied countires like the Phipps factories in my father's birth place Eindhoven?

Do Christians in the Middle east have clean hands (re:massacres by militias in lebanon) and if not should I hate all christians for that.

Of course not.
