The World Has Nothing To Fear From Christians; The Same Cannot Be Said of Islam

I saw a story last week that caught my attention. The headline read, "The 'survival of the world' is at stake if Muslims and Christians do not make peace with each other, leaders of the Muslim world will warn the Pope and other Christian leaders today."

The story continued, "As Muslims, we say to Christians that we are not against them and that Islam is not against them - so long as they do not wage war against Muslims on account of their religion, oppress them and drive them out of their homes.'"

Someone is either utterly ignorant of Islamic history and current events or are utterly disingenuous. I am rip snorting offended by their statement for it implies that WE are the problem and if WE just dropped our Christian bigotry and hatred that we could all get along.

Let me make this clear. I am reading the Koran currently and while I am only about a third of the way through it, (I'm on pg. 145) you can hardly read more than a couple pages without reading about the "infidels," which the Koran repeatedly delineates as Christians and Jews and that WE infidels have no place with God and in fact are enemies of God and consequently are enemies of Muslims.

So let's have a reality check here. First of all, Muslims are historically the aggressors--just review Jewish history and let us remember who blew up our embassy, our world trade center, our naval ship and our twin towers, all unprovoked.

And let us not fail to remember that Christians are not their only targets. Terrorism against many other religions is common place and genocide amongst the various sects of Islam has been a long standing tragedy. Remember that just about every country on the globe has been the recipient of Muslim terror. So much for Christians oppressing them and driving them from their homes.

The unprecedented open letter has been signed by 138 leading scholars from every sect of Islam, and pleads with Christian leaders "to come together with us on the common essentials of our two religions" and spell out the similarities between passages of the Bible and the Koran.

Muslims have nothing to fear from Christians. The same cannot be said of Christians and Muslims.

And if someone wants to bring up the canard of the Crusades, remember that the Crusades were clearly not Biblically endorsed." One cannot make the same claim about Islamic Jihad and the Koran.
