Why the Muslim vs the Christian? Why not Muslim vs Taoism, Christian vs science, or any other worldly combination that could be contrived? The answer is simple. Muslims and Christians are at war.
Why would I say something like that?
This is why:
As you can see, whether or not Christians and Jews want a war, they are being dragged into one. The goal behind Islam is clear in that it commands everlasting war between the Muslim and non-Muslim until Sharia law is established world wide. But, is this what the Quran actually teaches?

Now, let’s compare this with early Christian crusades throughout Europe and America. Much is similar in the exterior fact that people, under the banner of the Church have tried to force their belief system onto a populace and many were either converted by the sword or killed. But it this what the Bible actually teaches?

Both books are full of conflicting verses to the non-theologian. But the following video explains, even to the most inept, how these two religions are complete polar opposites :
With Islam, the more recent verses of the Quran commands the Muslim to be intolerant of the “non-believer”. the Quran does not encourage a Muslim to be forgiving to anyone, it only demands that Sharia law is followed. Muslims are encouraged to be ANYTHING but peaceful to people who are not truly Islamic and accepting of Sharia law. The Quran states that Muslims are to make war until Sharia law is accepted, by any means necessary, world wide.
The war between the Muslim vs the Christian dates back over 1500 years and while the Christian has, for the most part, forgotten this war and moved on, Islam has not. While most Christians are accepting of a “common law” legal system because it allows FOR their religious beliefs, Islam will not accept any legal system other than Sharia law because it goes specifically AGAINST their religious beliefs.
Israel understands this, all too well, due to geographic location. Europe is finding out that it’s common law legal system is being challenged by Muslim leaders from predominantly Muslim areas, within Europe itself, to have Sharia law in their “districts”. America seems under-informed or is in denial of the clear and present danger Islam represents to it’s own legal system.
So what is the answer to this menacing problem when ignoring it has proven futile and engaging it has proven deadly and dangerous? How do you define an enemy that is among your own citizenry until that person or group exposes themselves for who and what they are? Even within Islamic countries, how do you separate the peaceful middle-easterner who fears for their live to denounce Islam from the radical middle-easterner who embraces it?
I named this post, the Muslim vs the Christian because this is a war that can only be won on an ideological playing field. Both true Christian and true Muslim know their respective scriptures well. Neither are confused nor conflicted about the messages contained therein. What must be changed is the ideology that the world will bow before one law or one god.
