"because we never had christians condemning their own religion, right?

Don't know, being disgusted by the smallest things, like no priesthood for women or some past witch-hunting.

you never hear mention of how the christian church was oppressive during the middle age, condemned both by historians, christians and even high members of the church (pope)."

Thats not true. Christains NEVER condemnened the religion of christianity. otherwise they wont be called christians anymore. They comndemend certain behavior practiced by christians and called them "unchristain". No christain balme christianity or Jesus for what the christians did in the past or present. On the other hand, Everybody here is blaming the prophet mohamad and the religion of islam ( misquoting verses of the quran to justif their rant).

You will only strenghten radical muslims and further isolate moderate voices by condemning the religion itself instead of the practices of the muslim extremists.

There are 1.3 billion muslims and they are here to stay. We will only defeat radical muslims by joining our effort together not by blaming the religion of islam, the religion of both the moderate and the extremists.
