  • It's because they are subconsciously embarrassed about their beliefs and lifestyle so they pick on you guys to make them feel better about themselves.
  • Are adopting? Geez, I thought that had always been the case for at least 2,000 years...
  • I'm not a Christian, a Jew, or a Muslim, but I would assume that at the core, all three of these groups fear the others. Each of them suggests a view of the world that is mutually exclusive, so another view is competition. Add to this the history of conflict between the groups and I think your question is answered.
  • You'll find people from all religions that have hostile feelings toward others. I however have no hostile feelings toward any religions. My parents enrolled both my brother an I at a school that had both an English and Arabic program. Actually the best babysitter I ever had was only in Canada so she and her husband could attend school. The entire family treated my family as if we were a part of theres. They moved to Iran and we only get to see them once maybe twice a year when they come to visit.
  • I do not think that all Christians and Jews have a hostile attitude to Muslims, but many find the very idea of Islam offensive. In Christianity, Jesus was the last of the Prophets and the Bible says that any prophets coming after him are going to be false Prophets. For this reason, there is no place in Christianity for Mohommed.For Christians, Jesus was the seal of the Prophets and to suggest that anyone who came after him is considered by many to be blasphemy and an insult against God. I suspect that some Jews hate Muslims because of the political situation in the Middle East. In the Bible, God gave the land of Palestine/Israel to the Jews and told them to kill everone in it that was not a Jew. Some very devout Jews regard Palistinian Arabs as trespassers in their home. I am not a Christian or a Jew, but that is my understanding of the matter.
  • Another reason for hostility towards Muslims by some Christians and Jews is due to centuries of conflict with Islam. Some Hindu's hate Muslims for the same reason. At the time of the Prophet Mohommed, North Africa and the modern countries of Turkey, Syria,Iraq,Jordan and Israel were mostly Christian.Following the death of Mohommed, his followeres conqured these areas apart from what is today modern Turkey.They also conqured most of Spain and part of southern France, until they were driven back out of France at the Battle of Tours in AD732.After several centuries, the Christians regined control of Spain. Between AD1095 and AD1270, Christians invaded Palistine, but the Muslims eventuallu drowv them out. In AD1070, Muslims invaded what is now Turkey and over the next few centuries they conqured the Balkans until they were driven back following the sirge of Vienna in AD1689. In the AD1800'S Europeean Christians conqured most of the Muslim World and kept control until after the Second World War. Since then, there has been the Conflict in the Middle East, in which Christians generally support Israel. In India, Muslims conqured most of the country in the AD1500'S and went on to rule over Hindu's until the British took over. With all these centuries of conflict, it is not surprising that many Christians, Jews and Hindu's have hostile attitudes towards Muslims.
  • I'll keep it basic...fear of the unknown, maybe some fear from what has transpired over recent years, ignorance. There are extremists in all faiths, and they are the ones that give all faiths a bad name in some way shape or form. My take on the Muslim religion....I don't know much about it, I figure they are just people just trying to live their life, pay their bills, and raise their kids, just like the rest of us. I have no problem with the religion.
  • Probably more than anything, they are misled by the events of the "bad" Muslims such as those involved in terrorist activities. It is hard enough to get someone to investigate their own religion, and darn near impossible to get them to investigate another religion, so these uninformed people are going to go around thinking that Islam teaches that if you kill Christians you will be rewarded in Heaven. As a Muslim, what you can do in the meantime is to keep putting out information showing the positive side of Islam and do all you can to set these people straight.
  • Fear and ignorance mostly. Also some religious faiths have little tolerance for completion and have what I consider an insane level of "brand" loyalty. You would think that most people of faith would respect those who have found a religion for themselves even though it was in a different flavor than theirs - but loyalty to a religion is akin to loyalty to a football team - and rational thinking goes out the window when discussing either of them. We who are not involved in the argument find this very amusing to watch - if not just a bit sick.
  • The anti social actions of only a few people who claim to be Muslim are contaminating any other good action by the majority. So only when the Muslims RID themselves of those few, and especially the so called Mullahs who preach revenge, will they ever be acceptable... IF at all, because they do not preach the Bible...the TOTAL Bible...and not just sections of the O.T. pertaining to Abraham
  • It's not a religious thing - mainly as Jews and Christians have a mock religion in this day and age - but a political and racial thing. Jews and Christians have been racist and imperialist for most of their existence. It's only after the second world war; where Christians used that racism and imperialism to kill a shit-ton of Jews that Jews realised they are not as "chosen" as they've led themselves to believe. Christians for their part realised they are as peaceful and loving as they've led themselves to believe.
  • This is a blanketed statement and not true, most Christians in my country live alongside Muslims and get along. Just for information purposes Christians believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God, not a prophet. From what I gather Muslims believe Jesus is a prophet and the Messiah, but not the only begotten son of God. In the bible it states 2 John 1: 7-10 For many deceivers have gone out into the world, refusing to confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist. Watch yourselves, so that you do not lose what we have worked for, that you may be fully rewarded. Anyone who runs ahead without remaining in the teaching of Christ does not have God. Whoever remains in His teaching has both the Father and the Son. Testing the Spirits - 1 John 4: Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God. For many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you will know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming, and is already in the world at this time. You, little children, are from God and have overcome them, because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. They are of the world. That is why they speak from the world’s perspective, and the world listens to them. We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us; whoever is not from God does not listen to us. That is how we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of deception. If anyone comes to you but does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your home or even greet him. Whoever greets such a person shares in his evil deeds. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. This is why Christians do not believe that Muhammad is a prophet of God it is not biblical and there was no need for a prophet as Christ took everything upon himself where death and sin was nailed to the cross so as long as you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and saviour, and be born again by the spirit, putting on a new mind and carrying the law in your heart, ("Love your Lord God with all your might and love thy neighbour as thyself)" then you are transformed by the spirit. John 1:9 The true Light who gives light to every man was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through Him, the world did not recognize Him. He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But to all who did receive Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God— children born not of blood, nor of the desire or will of man, but born of God. I hope this helps.
  • I can't believe no one has yet addressed the terrorist activities perpetuated by and TAUGHT TO Muslims BY THEIR OWN RELIGION! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Islamist_terrorist_attacks Are you all really so brainwashed that you can't see the direct correlation between the two? C'mon you guys! They teach children songs about chopping people's heads off and they teach the men of the family to beat their wives and children!! They teach them to kill anyone who doesn't convert to their religion! That is in direct contrast to your claim of RESPECT!! And then they are going to CLAIM TO BE A PEACEFUL RELIGION!!?? SOOOO hypocritical and full of lies!! And then you're going to act like you don't know why people dislike your religion? What the hell is wrong with your thinking process?!! Here is a list of the most violent groups in the world - AND THEY ARE ALL MUSLIM!!! https://www.forbes.com/sites/dominicdudley/2018/12/05/deadliest-terrorist-groups-in-the-world/#4d8b1a8c2b3e When your religious goal is to kill everyone who disagrees with you through terrorist activities ALL OVER THE WORLD AGAINST EVERYONE WHO IS NOT YOUR RELIGION YOU CAN EXPECT YOUR RELIGION TO BE HATED! DUH! And then you have the nerve to blame Christians for it? THAT'S the epitome of ignorance!

      It's much easier for the sheeple to keep their heads in the sand on Islam. They'd much rather buy Che shirts and complain about capitalism on Instagram with their iPads.
  • Tell that to the muslims who want to wipe Israel off the map. Your initial statement is inaccurate.
  • Deuteronomy 30:19 assures us that we were all created with the freedom to choose, for ourselves, our own course in life. Psalms 11:5 teaches us that God hates anyone who loves violence. Any individual who chooses to be violent will suffer the consequences of divine judgement. Please do not accuse entire groups of people of being “hostile”, especially since you feel that you’re being accused of being hostile. I’m a Christian and I’m not hostile or violent.
