Firstly ahmad zafire, the bible is in two sections: The Old Testament and The New Testament. The Old Testament is about the History of the Jews and how they went from Egypt to Canaan etc and like everybody at that time they killed and plundered in the name of God. (sounds familiar to what your religion peaches nowadays really). Then Jesus came and preached about love and peace and this is The New Testament which was written after his death by his followers and writers who knew about his life. Christians live by what Jesus taught us and that is peace and compassion for others and how to Live with others insted of killing them.

Jesus had many enemies and from what you said so did Mohammad, and you could say both of them won their battles. Jesus obeyed the Laws of the time and for it was killed and he even healed a Soldier who was injured when he was captured and when he was crucified and ressurected it sparked a huge fire of people who converted to christianity and these people traveled the Known World PEACEFULLY preaching Jesus's words and they won many converts. What did Mohammad do? He destroyed all his enemies in a military conquest and when he died his followers carried on his legacy and created an empire going from North Africa to Pakistan. If you did not convert, You were killed and that is how you won converts. It does not take a genious to figure out which is the Great Relgion of Peace and which Relgion is a cult of blood-thirsty warriors. Jesus was a great peaceful preacher, Mohammad was the leader of an army, Mohammad wasn't the last prophet to carry on Jesus's words, he preached the total opposite of Jesus.
