Christians V. Muslims

Many muslims seem to look at the world as some sort of war between Islam and Christianity to see who will dominate the world.
Speaking as a not-very-religious jew, I think that it would be a lot better for the world if the Christians won.

ten reasons why Christianity is preferable to Islam:

#1: Muslims would never have thought of the U.S.A., or if they did, the mullas would certainly never have allowed it.
#2: The closest thing to a Jihaad that christians have ever done was the crusades, and once those failed, they GAVE UP!
#3: In most christian communities, a husband doesn't have the right to beat or kill his wife for being in public with a strange man.
#4: If Christopher Columbus had suggested to almost any muslim ruler that the world was round, he'd have been drawn and quartered (at the least).
#5 There is no Christian-predominated country in the world where it is illegal to practice Islam. (unlike in many Islamic countries, where christians are regularly killed or enslaved).
#6 the Catholic church got rid of the Inquisition on it's own, Islam is going to need a great deal of help to get rid of the Taliban, Islamic Jihad, Fatah, and all those other groups who are supposedly fighting in Allah's name.
#7 Christians generally don't do suicide bombings.
#8 When the Serbs started killing Muslims in Bosnia, they weren't applauded by the entire christian world; when Muslims do something similiar, they are.
#9 there were christian kingdoms allowing freedom of religion as far back as the 15th century; today, there aren't many muslim coutries that allow the same.
#10 Many jews were saved in World War II by christians acting as groups of christians: There was a protestant village in france that hid 5,000 jews throughout the whole war; the Arch-Bishop of Bulgaria threatened to lie down on the tracks in front of the first train carrying jews to the concentration camps; the Bishops of Holland threatened to excommunicate any catholics who helped the germans find jews; the Pope hid Roman Jews in the Vatican! Many Muslims also saved Jewish lives, but they were almost always acting as individuals: when muslims acted as groups of muslims, it was almost always in support of the germans. Remember the Wafdists anyone? The Iraqi revolt?

So anyway, I hope I haven't offended TOO many people by this(Yeah, yeah, only every muslim and lefty reading this), and given you food for thought. Please post a comment(I need all the feedback I can get), and read plenty more of me.
