Wow, what a searing indictment of Christianity. It sounds as if all Christians are bloodthirsty, hating mongers. It's unfortunate that you choose to exemplify the religion of Love with people who claim the religion but do not live it. Jesus said many people would call to him and he would not recognize them. People who commit actions in the name of Christ do not necessarily represent Christ's teachings.
If a person claiming to be a Christian doesn't understand Christianity and behaves in a non-Christian manner, you can blame the person, not the religion that teaches us to love our brothers. That, at least, is what you tell us is true of Islam. We are supposed to blame the fanatical individuals, not the religion for their actions of hate.
There are many different interpretations of Christianity and many people who knowingly misrepresent Christianity in order to further their own selfish ends. That doesn't make them Christians. Why don't you cite those people who sacrifice for the good of others and work to help people because they are filled with the Love of Christ? Because you choose to misrepresent Christianity.
