To be clear:

I didn't write that article. It was written by Rabbi Joseph Telushkin and can be found at the link I provided in my last post.

I just thought it was interesting reading, and appropriate to the discussion.

At the same time, I realize that everything has an origin and Christianity as well as Islam was rooted through the Jews.

I wish everyone understood this. The way I think about it is to imagine that Abraham, John the Baptist and Muhammad were all travelling together across country on a train looking for a suitable place to settle down and call home. John and Muhammad jumped off in the town at the first stop, but after a few weeks Muhammad ended up walking to the next town that he liked better. Abraham is still on the train.
