    Maybe the reason why Islam is singled out is because they continue to commit the barbaric acts (and lots more than murder), and the others don't.
    Forgive my ignorance, but are these murders or merely casualties of wartime violence?

    And I would also add that it would be very hypocritical for someone calling himself Reverend, to make such an argument.
    So what war is the Catholic Church involved in?

I'd say Quran can easier be used/abused to justify war and violence, than the NT (and maybe the OT too, not sure about that). But without any doubt, many Muslims don't do that, but rather emphasize the more peaceful aspects.

    A long story short: I don't think you can call an entire religion, with all its contradictions, a "religion of war", because this would imply there is just one true way to follow this religion, which obviously is not true. But even if you call Islam a "religion of war", people aren't necessarily warmongers, just because they are Muslims.
    Well said GG.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Re: Is Islam evil/a religion of war?

    Having read both the Bible and thre Koran, I can see a clear difference. The bible some claom has many bad things about it, but that is only to people who do not understand its learning. The Bible is a great book, no matter if you are religious or not, as long as you understand how to learn from it, be it religiously or intellectually.
    The Koran does not have this, and in addition it is full of hatred and negativity, in particular towards Jews and Israel, but also some towards Christians. The Koran itself cannot be interpretated in a positive way in my opinion, sure, you can easily be caught by its doctrine, but in the end this doctrine is written by a very limited man, one man Mohammed. Mohammed was a very spiteful individual and had some hatred towards Jews and Christians, this man invented a religion and fueled it with much of the same hatred and spitefulness he himself posessed. Mohammed was not a great man and the Koran is not a great work.

    The bible is a collaboration, a collection of works of ideology, and as such is great and does not overlylfeature one mans interpretations, thoughts, emotions and so fourth.

    I have no idea how Muslims interpret the Koran, it could be widely different from what I think, but from a comparision of the Bible and the Koran, The Koran is not a great book, not a good book, in my opinion a book best forgotten, that people base religious belief on strict interpretations of the Koran is unbeliable.

    A book of war? in some interpretations yes, a book of evil? A little.
