in response to reader comment: choosing the wrong path after having the right path

Please define what is "innocent" for Islam. and if Jihad is a defensive war how could it be that the Islam Empire conquered (not by preaching but by killing) all the Middle East, almost all India, North Africa, Portugal, 80% of Spain, Sicily (Italy), 30% of France (it got upto the gates of Paris) in only 300 years?

Christianity is not finished. It's only that, unlike Sharia (Islamic Law) we don't kill those who doesn't follow Christian morals, even if they claim to be christian. Nor we kill people if they make jokes or insult God. That's not true in Islamic "Republics". That's why you may see those "incoherences" in western countries. It's called freedom of belief.

We pray in front of crosses, without them, in a church, in a park, in the bathroom, wherever or whenever we want. We don't think that the cross is an idol a god or do we pray to ask something to the cross. That's the difference.

He didn't said that muslim believes in three gods. He said that muslims says that christians beleive in three gods. Either is hard for Muslim to understand trinity or misunderstood is done on purpose.
