Jesus appears in many religions,but always as a prophet,not the son of god.Muhammed was a prophet,he never claimed he could work miracles.
To say the Islam faith is evil shows complete and utter ignorance! It wasn't the Muslims who started the crusades,but the Christians! Saying that
though,both religions are guilty of having followers who have corrupted holy scriptures for their own purpose,which usually leads to violence and
suffering.And if you think only the Qu'ran contains bloodshed,how about these....

"""Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the LORD in the matter of Peor, and there

lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.""" (Numbers 31:16-18)
""The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.""" (Exodus 15:3)
"""Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: For from henceforth there shall be five in one house
divided, three against two, and two against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the
daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law."""

"""Behold, here is my daughter a maiden, and his concubine; them I will bring out now, and humble ye them, and do with them what seemeth good unto
you: but unto this man do not so vile a thing. But the men would not hearken to him: so the man took his concubine, and brought her forth unto them;
and they knew her, and abused her all the night until the morning: and when the day began to spring, they let her go.""" (Judges 19:24-25)
Your a Utd fan,so somewhere in your brain you have an ounce of intelligence! I suggest you use it! Muslims are not your enemy.Your enemy are those
that are brainwashing you to think like that!
As for the Qu'ran agreeing with the rights of the Holy Land,it should be noted that in general the Qu'ran and Hadith make a distinction between
"Children of Israel" and "Jews". This distinction reflects the history of those two terms.
The term "Israel" or "Children of Israel" refers to the twelve sons of Jacob and their descendants. Jews almost never referred to themselves
collectively as "Jews" until after the 13th century. In the Bible, Prayer Book and Talmud they call themselves "Children of Israel", "Children of
Jacob", "Israel", etc. but never "Jews". The word "Jews" derives from the Roman term "Judea" which described roughly the area allocated to
the tribe of Judah including Jerusalem. More specifically it refers to the militant zealots who fought against Rome. According to Josephus, these
zealots belonged to a Temple Cult at odds with the Rabbinical Jewish authorities, and a portion of which were Idumean converts to Judaism. In this
sense the "Jews" or more properly "Judeans" meant militants. New Testament references to "Jews" follow this pattern, for example Jesus was
labeled as "King of the Jews", i.e. "King of the militants", not "King of Israel". After the Islamic conquest "Children of Israel" came to
imply the Jewish people who kept the Divinely given commandments, and the "Jews" as those who abandoned or rejected them.
It also has to be taken into account that the Holy Land,up until the creation of modern Israel,was Muslim land for about 700/800 years! Then,during &
after WW2 a huge influx of Jews headed there,and 1000's of Muslims were displaced,hence the subsequent and continuous troubles of people fighting for
their homes.Wouldn't you if you had lost everything?
If the European Union decided that half of American land should be given back to the Native American's would you be happy about that? I don't think
If you want to learn about Islam learn from a Muslim,not a Christian and definatly not a politician!
