For once, I actually agree with you. What pains me to see is kids in my class, two in particular, who were raised in such religious backgrounds, one Jewish, one Christian, that their religions are so much better than Islam, and that Islam breaches violence. Fact of the matter is that it does not. If it did, then the Arab-American population would be less patriotic than it is.
Look at some comparisons:
Crusades (the drive to reconquer the holy land) and Missionaries=Jihad (the belief that the entire world must be converted to Islam)
KKK and Neo-Nazis=Hezbollah and Hamas
Nazi Germany (Hitler was a firm believer in Christianity, after all)=Afghanistan
Jews (specifically treatment of them in Spanish Inquisition and in WWII)= the regular citizen who lives in Afghanistan
Unfortunately, theology is a very difficult topic to argue because there is no truly right answer; it all depends on who you ask.
