In his defense, most devout Jewish people are anti-Islamic and most devout Islamic people are anti-Semite. Expecting a shared hatred that goes back thousands of years to suddenly stop existing because the PC crowd have deemed Islamics to be worthy of unfettered love is pretty narrow-minded in itself.

So you are completely ok with bigotry and hatred continuing because the generations before them were hateful?

religion doesn't breed hate, humans do

I totally agree. I disagree with duane's point that since muslims and jews have had beef since day one they might as well continue with their beef.

Haha, my roommate in college comes from a family of Catholics and Jews. My roommate himself is sort of agnostic, however his brothers go like this:

Oldest brother: Devout Catholic
Youngest brother: Being raised Jewish
Middle brother: Raised Jewish, just converted to Islam and married his Muslim wife.

And they all love each other! It's definitely possible!
