Tracy,
You need to do a bit of digging into the different factions of the Islamic religions. When you can talk intelligently about which Islamic faction you are referring to as "peace-loving, Christian-saving Muslims", that would help your argument. You appear to only have opinions that are based on "coffee-table" discussion mentality rather that any real knowledge of the people who adhere to the Sunnah and "Koran"( as you spell it).
Christians have the Bible which contains the laws of "Jehovah" God... (as opposed to "Allah" God). When Christians live in the United States, France Switzerland, etc., Christians abide and obey the judicial laws of that county. Jesus says to "render unto Caesar what is Caesar's and to God that which is God's". So, Christians obey the judicial laws of a country while believing in God.
Muslims are not so.
Muslims have their "Koran" (from Allah), and also the Sunnah, which contains the thoughts ideas of Mohammad and the four imams who interpreted his thoughts for about 400 years after his death (nuts, but true, as I am sure you are aware). (These four are separate from the "12 Imams", just so you know I am not mixing them up in one big bunch).Then they have Sharia Law, which is a mutation of all of the above, PLUS ANY ruling imam's "intellectual input at the time" of interpreting the law and punishment.
If a Muslim lives under and believes Sharia Law, that Muslim believes the judicial laws of the land in which they reside do not apply to them. Only Sharia Law.
Without giving a lecture on the divisions of Islam, you need to differentiate which Muslims you are talking about bring so kind and thoughtfully understanding to non-Islamic believers. Are you talking about the Twelvers and if not, which ones?
Muslims have as many factions as Christianity has denominations. Arabic is the official langauge of 22 countries in the world, but there are so many different dialects, many Arabs don't even understand each others' speech, much less have the same understanding as to the way to Heaven! I would be more apt to listen toyour comments if you were somewhat savvy as to what you talk about. By your own words, it appears you know nothing about Muslims and Islam and their religion and the laws they adhere to or WHY they believe what they believe.
Hint: a TWELVER would never be shielding a bunch of Jesus-is-coming-back-to-save-us-Christians, and certainly never the (they believe) Jew-pigs! So, tell us who you were referring to. You write as if at anytime, any Muslim might suddenly have a "Jesus moment" and save a non-Islamic believer from destruction in a war- zone! That is just not the case.
