C. Our Prophet "Most Important" in Islam?
Muslims are asked to respect each and every prophet, but they should follow the prophet whose mission is "Current"
Do you also not do the same about your "Current" Presidents and "Current" Senate and Assemblies? You "respect and honor" all past Presidents and Parliament and Assemblies but follow the one which is "Current".
And when we follow our prophet, we do what Jesus said himself, It was Jesus who said "he will guide you into all truth".
D. Jesus "stripped" of his title and his "Individuality"?
This is another misconception. Does Quran say that he was not born from Virgin Mary? Does Quran reject any of his miracles?
If Quran says Jesus was an "ordinary prophet", it says the same thing about our prophet also!!
There is no "Greater Honor" for any Human being than to become an "Ordinary Prophet of God".
I don't follow the teachings of any President or Senator or hold them to a higher standing then the garbage man. Yes the Quran rejects that he died on the cross and lived again.

F. Quran asks Christians to Judge by Bible:
This is Quranic advice for "Co-existence and tolerant", that Jews and Christians and people of other faiths, should "at least" follow their scriptures and leave the judgment of their disputes to God.
This is the best approach and very reasonable, disputes and discussions would only increase enmity, and never bridge the gap.
G. Bible supports the "traditional view" of Jesus:
You are not being honest here. OT books do not support any "Traditional View" of Jesus and Jews "as a whole" reject Jesus and his mission.
NT books and especially St. Paul is the Chief Promoter of what Christians Regard as their Traditional View. This was not during the life time of Jesus.
H. Corruption of Bible:
Quran has a very "realistic approach" about it.
a. First of all , it NEVER uses the word "Bible" anywhere, which is a term concocted by Christians very late.
b. It confirms about "Revelation" given to Earlier prophets.
It confirms Torah which was revelation given to prophet Moses.
It confirms ZABUR (Psalms) which was given to Prophet David
In Confirms INJEEL which was revelation given to Prophet Jesus.
And it confirms other revelations sent to other prophets in general.
c. At "No Place" Quran says that these existing books (66 or 73) are the same revelation, and at the same time not deny that Revelation of Prophets are not present into it.
d. And Quran also says that "people of book" (Jews and Christians) write books from their own hands and then say "It is form God" (Ch. 2, Verse 79)
And at many places, it says that these people distort the message while reciting, changing some words from their original locations, to give an erroneous meaning (Ch3. V 78)
e. Seeing all of that, the "most balanced view about Bible" from Islamic point of view is:
1. These books, though originally correct have suffered both in contents and interpretations during so many centuries.
2. The corruptions and omissions and removal of texts and changing pronunciations has been both intentional as well as unintentional.
3. But these Books do contain word of God and revelations into them, but no one is sure and certain about any particular portion.
4. The FACT that these books have suffered during copying and transmission is confirmed when we see mistakes, contradictions and discrepancies in them. Obviously these are not from God.
That is why we Muslims:
1. Confirm that part of Bible, which is confirmed by Quran.
2. We reject the part which is specifically rejected by Quran.
3. We keep Silent on parts where Quran is silent.
I can give examples of all three cases, if you are interested in it.
And we do not do this because we are "Biased and tilted" in favour of Quran, but only because Quran is Word of God and Preserved in its original condition in its original tongue.
I hope I have covered most of salient parts of your post.
Allah Knows Best.
The Quran is just a book like the Bible. I see you nuts going crazy over someone burning or destroying the book, I say buy a new one. The quran was not personally given to Mo from the sky ghost. Someone wrote it, someone published it. I prefer to use the quran as waste paper.

We can say that the Alawites don't bomb Christian villages like the fundamentalist Nusra Front does, but then again the gassing of woman and chiuldren is just a heinous. Is it true that the Alawite celebrate Christmas too and is that from a Santa perspective or the birth of Jesus perspective?

Fundamentalist adherents of Islam and Christendom love to discuss who is going to hell and who is not, it's one of their favorite pastimes,they say to each other "let us relax and discuss the occupants of eternal damnation while we accentuate our unique relationship with Sky-God".
What's the contrast between a radical Muslim and a fundamentalist Christian?
Hey idiot, what would you rather do? send troops to another country when these Muslims read what Allah is commanding them to do? Isn't it better to reason with them, show them how misguided they are?

Anyway I thought (jeebus) taught his groveling followers to turn the cheek and pray for those who persecute people? But real Christendom in practice is quite different than what Jeebus spoke of isn't it?

Muhhamad = muhieathamidid - the holy desert pirate rat, nothing in the world says Muhammad pronounced (Mu-I-eat-ham-I -did) like a good beheading and stoning

Jesus= Jeebus- Bud-light,the new and improved God, same old great God but without all the sociopathic carnage.

If so, then why is the corpse of Muhammed still in his tomb ?
Why did Muhammed kill so many people.
Islam was created by the catholic church in order to kill all the christians in the middle east.
Jesus never killed anyone. He is returning soon to take out the anti-christ and establish his kingdom. All occult activities will cease to exist.
Islam created the Catholic Church?

Very funny Bob. You have Zero credibility.

Are you afraid to call Him Jesus? What's funny is an atheist judging a Christian...LOL...Isn't your model country the Russia of old, when Stalin and his party killed over 58 million Christians, the funny thing now is the proof that you can't kill the faith as Russia is dominated by Christianity today and are the peacemakers.

I'm not an atheist , I'm agnostic, you are too, you just don't know it. Also atheism is not at all to be correlated with Communism, there are many Christians who hold Marxist and socialist economic views. Many horrible things have been done under Capitalism yet you don't attempt to equate capitalism to Christianity do you, economist certainly don't. they know it's erroneous logic. Also there are plenty of atheist who staunchly defend capitalism, e.g. Ayn Rand

I historically despise Stalinism and have always viewed it as a distortion of Marxism. Marxist Socialism and Communism never waged war in the name of atheism,but many wars have been waged in the name of God, that fact you selectively won't admit. Atheism is not a political view or a religious view, it is the lack of both. Karl Marx's family was orthodox Jew, he was the grandson of two rabbis and was later converted to Christianity when he was a young boy. Stalin was raised in a religious home and his Mother was so religious that she named him after St. Joseph, when Stalin was young he spent five years in a Greek Orthodox seminary. Later Stalin rejected religion all together however that was long before he ever became a Communist. What's really amazing is that many atheist become atheist from experiencing and observing the abuses of religions and religion is the factor of causality in their atheistic perspectives, but no wars have ever been waged in the name of atheism, unlike religious wars and religious sectarian wars that rage on perpetually today.

That would include:

Badminton
Hair conditioner for men
Hugging a puppy
Petting a kitten
Shaving your face if a male

I will continue the list latter

Only problem with your analogies is that God and Stalin had many things in common. They were both megalomaniacs, power hungry, insecure, brutal, both demanded sycophantic obedience, but unlike Stalin, God committed his sociopathic atrocities under the name of religious righteousness, whereas Stalin never committed his atrocities in the name of atheism or any religion. A political worldview is not atheism
