Buddhism, zoroastrianism and hinduism are all OLDER than christianity, but your book never mentions them.

As it happened, people that were not jews or christians were killed OR converted because you believed them to be PAGANs.

Another thing you said is that we consider the monotheistic religions on a higher ground than non-theistic religions. Wrong. It's again islam that makes a distinction and think itself as a superior one.

Which is not and will never be.
