    Actually I would disagree with your Jew vs. Muslim comparison and say that people from both sides could find material to back up their beliefs. A "bad" Jew that comes to mind is Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira and in his book he says, “Non-Jews are “uncompassionate by nature” and should be killed in order to “curb their evil inclinations.” “If we kill a gentile who has has violated one of the seven commandments… there is nothing wrong with the murder,” Shapira says. Then using "Jewish" law-or what he gathers from the law- as his source he stated: “There is justification for killing babies if it is clear that they will grow up to harm us, and in such a situation they may be harmed deliberately, and not only during combat with adults.” Sorry, I don't like it coming from a Jew any better than I like that crazy talk coming from a Muslim. I get what you mean by saying there is a difference in culture between the Western culture and Islamic fundamentalism that does not value human rights, freedoms etc. but the average Jew and Muslim can get along well and want to live their lives in peace. It is the crazy,fundamentalist people on both sides that mess things up.
