Why are Muslim Jewish and Christian religions fighting?

See also (not a revolution) 

Islam doesn't fight anyone. In fact a Muslim is no Muslim unless he believes in Moses and Jesus as prophets sent by Allah to guide people to the right path just as Muhammad (PBUH) is. Islam teaches people how to be tolerant with all other people of all faiths unless they-other people-started war. 
Opinions

•Muhammad,(founder of Islam) who lived in the seventh century C.E., claimed to be an Ishmaelite descendant of Abraham. Ishmael was the firstborn son of Abraham,from earliest times the first born son held an honored position in the family and was the one who succeeded to the headship of the household. He inherited a double portion of the fathers property. Since the firstborn sons among the Israelites were those in line to become the heads of the various households, they represented the entire nation. Ishmael, as Abraham's oldest son, was prospective heir for about 14 years. (Ge 16:16; 17:18-21; 21:5) But at Sarah's request and with God's approval, Abraham dismissed Ishmael, then about 19 years of age. Isaac then possessed the first born's right and later received everything that Abraham had.(Ge 21:8-13) 25:5,?6). Muslims, as descendants of Ishmael, believe they are God's chosen people, and Christendom believe they are by virtue of Issac, Jesus came through the line of descent from Abraham Issac and so on,but the Muslims feel strongly that their inheritance was stolen.


•There is also too much of a generalization in the question. The religions themselves are not fighting. The dispute is between the inhabitants of a certain region of the Middle East. The factions just happen to be uniform in their religious affiliations because a dispute over land allocation was handled badly. srael is a modern nation. After the Second World War, the Jews wanted a homeland. Unfortunately this meant some one else was going to have to give up some real estate. It eventually wound up being the Palestinians. Regardless of ones faith it is difficult to be told one day that you are just going to have to give up your home so some one else can live there. Israel/ the Middle East is the home and birth place of all three of these faiths so many of their holy sites share common ground. There is a constant tension over ownership and always has been.If you are talking about the war on terror that is another issue all together with quite complex socio political causes and implications that have very little to do with religion even if Islam is used as a banner by evil doers.

•Near as I can tell, each group believes that God is Love and are willing to kill one another to prove it.

•The religious war taking place in Palestine boils down to a clash of civilizations; Secrets lay beneath.

•Islam is a pissed off religion, that's why they strap bombs to little children to go blow themselves up and take a few more with them. Jewish and Christians are fighting because the Jewish believed that Jesus wasn't considered who He said He was. So they killed him. That is why Christians and Jewish are fighting each other.



"Jews, Christians, and Muslims all believe in the same things. They just don't agree on who the Messiah is. The Jews are still waiting, The Christians think is was Jesus, and the Muslims believe that Mohammed was the last true prophet of god (Jesus being just a prophet himself and not the son of God.) There are only five things you have to do to be a Muslim (known as the five pillars of Islam): Faith or belief in the Oneness of God and the finality of the prophethood of Muhammad; Establishment of the daily prayers; Concern for and almsgiving to the needy; Self-purification through fasting; and The pilgrimage to Makkah for those who are able. Everything else like the burqha, oppression of women, beheadings etc have to do with tradition and laws in Muslim countries and have very little to do with the contents of the Qu'ran."
