    BroC in another thread gave an off-topic reply.
    So I thought I'd start a new thread on Christians and Muslims living peaceably together. Here is for starters:

    My question was not off topic. It was a response about a claim you made during the thread.

    Despite your blatant dishonest, I will look at your response later.

    Crabby, isolated incidents do not count. Just the other night a Muslim family sat at the table behind me in a local yogurt shop. We all got a long just fine. But, that does not excuse the fact that most of today's problems dealing with terrorism has ties with Islam.

    Get a good book on mid-eastern history and you will find that until modern times that Christians and Muslims have lived together peacefully most of the time the last 2000 years.

    The guardian link does not come close to proving anything. It's a personal letter. Anyone can say anything in a letter.

    The second link does not answer my challenge either.

    2000 years of Christians and Muslims living side by side for has never happened.

    I was wrong. They have not lived together in any manner for 2000 years as Islam has not been around that long. Let's be more accurate, for 1000 years.

    Yeah, that and you started this thread with a blatant lie. I doubt it was 1000 years as well but I will look at it in due time.

    Your source is from 2005. A lot has changed since then.

    Christians in in Iraqi Kurdistan are persecuted and leaving.

    This bears repeating...

    Not only that, but written Kurdish history doesn't begin until 1597. There are no historical accounts before the Sharafnameh.

    This is in an ideal world! It is possible, and it should be. However, until the Muslims correct what is wrong in their hierarchy, it just may not be as big a piece a pie as it could be!
