My understanding is that there are MODERATES and EXTREMIST Muslims;
And it so happens that the extremist are classified as TERRORIST because they engaged in violence.
How they interprets their Koran, is what makes the difference.

As Christ came to be the Messiah, his message was of COMPLETE AND TOTAL NON VIOLENCE, without exception. His teachings are what got him crucified because not only did he claim to be God but he also went against a lot of the teachings of the Old Testament.
His birth and death is what brought the religion of Christianity to life and separated it from Judaism but you continue to lump in both for some odd reason.
Like I have said a million times to you, one thing is to be violent on your own in the name of a religion misinterpreting it or representing it, another is to follow the direct commands of the teachings of a religion and in some cases that might be violent.
In true Christianity, you are to be non violent. The only time violence is accepted is in defense of yourself or your family, where most of the violence commanded by God comes from even in the Old Testament. These people didn't live in our modern world, it was kill or be killed by enemies surrounding you, so yes, there was war and violence all the time
At the same time though, just because the Bible MENTIONS violence or rape, doesn't mean it condones it and you seem to have a problem differentiating the two.
