You stated, "Christians, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists or atheists have never had outrageous plans to dominate the world, change its order and eliminate all opposition and critics - Muslims do. None of the mentioned above claim to be on such a "divine" mission."

That's not exactly true for all those belief systems. The Holy Roman Catholic Church, in the Middle Ages, certainly had aspirations to dominate the western world at that time and took certain actions in that endeavor, but politics, nationalism, and then the Renaissance got in the way. Islam is now where the HRCC was in the Middle Ages and so in 500 years more or less, Islam should have reached it's reformation and then we'll all be friends and no need to mention the war!!!
