Muslims still kill in the name if their God and while Christians can be annoying they don't kill people anymore.
Western Christian stereotyping of Islam is at best, ignorant, and more likely hypocritical and bigot

You can believe anything you want.
But I will say this, watch your back. Some day you might find a knife in it.
Yes, thank you. We know of the "Be very afraid" approach to living ones life.
"Terror Alert" much?

This is why critical thinking is hard for most people. They can't look honestly at their own culture and religion because to do so would raise too many difficult questions, such as "is my religion really showing the fruits of the spirit," or "is America the best and most free country on Earth," or "how is it possible that Christian and Catholic people and nations have committed so much violence?"

I'm going to take another look at Islam with more loving eyes. The Sufis obviously have insight into things that resonate at a harmonic frequency with my soul, so it can't possibly be entirely bad. Islam is probably the belief system that I am most inherently prejudiced against. Thanks for this. ;p
the comparison between the old testament and islam is also wrong as the old testament time period was about people taking what God had given them from people who threw babys into fires.
Get your fact's streight, if you do not understand christianity they that is your problem but it is about compassion, forgiveness and trusting in God.
34 “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. 35 For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; 36 and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.
24 Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.”
14 And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet. 15 Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!
Those who enslaved among the so called christians did in in contravention of there own faith and against here religious law's and while it was allowed in Judaism it was far more lenient than in islam.
You know muhammad had a slave and promised his followers slaves even in paradise, that they would have woman lay on there backs for them to rape them with there leg's spread.
5 Bondservants, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in sincerity of heart, as to Christ; 6 not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, 7 with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men, 8 knowing that whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from the Lord, whether he is a slave or free. 9 And you, masters, do the same things to them, giving up threatening, knowing that your own Master also is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him.
Let as many bondservants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honor, so that the name of God and His doctrine may not be blasphemed. 2 And those who have believing masters, let them not despise them because they are brethren, but rather serve them because those who are benefited are believers and beloved. Teach and exhort these things.
