Shouldn't you as a Muslim be far more worried about bad Muslims than bad Christians?
This is simple.
Wahhabis are not Muslims
And those who call them selves Christian + they know the lessons of Jesus + they don't do as Jesus did = they are not Christian.
They are a shell of Christian + I wanna do what I please . Like wahhabis.
West created Wahhabis to achieve it's goal. It is clear in history.

Ok, tell me this. I am "Christian" insofar as I believe in the actual teachings of Christ - peace, love, tolerance, charity, etc. But I do not believe in the mystical or superstitious parts of the religion - Christ being the actual son of god, the virgin birth, miracles, and so on. So virtually any Christian would say that I am not a true Christian, and I would say (as you do) that they are not true Christians if they do not behave in Christ-like ways. And you want to disciminate between various types of Muslims and determine who is a real Muslim and who isn't as well.
So, who really knows? Who is in charge? How could we imperfect humans ever devise and implement a system to arrive at the real truth? In answer to those questions, we in the West have developed a societal value in separating church from state, to avoid enshrining smallmindedness into law. And we have developed science to answer the real questions about the nature of the universe. And because of our acceptance of the limits of power and the usefulness of empiricism, we believe in free speech and that, in essence, nothing is sacred and everything should be defensible on its merits or discarded.
And this is where we are different. I say nothing is sacred. I can stand on the street corner and scream f--- Mohammed and f--- Jesus, and if you want to fight me over my blasphemy, I will fight you for the right to be a blasphemer. Because I know the moment you limit speech you limit thought, and when you limit thought you hide the truth from yourself. THIS is why I do not see the Western world and the Islamic world coming to terms any time soon. The Islamic world was once the center of learning and science, but the religion turned in a dark direction and occulted that which could have made it the center of the world. Now you see us as infidels and we see you as backward and an impediment to progress. Where do we go from here?
