As you probably know, the Jewish, Christian and Islamic god is one and
the same guy. Jews accept the Old Testament but not the New Testament
or the Quran, Christians accept the Old and New Testament but not the
Quran, while Muslims accept all three holy books. The actual behaviour
of Jews, Christians and Muslims has as much to do with the culture of
the day as what is actually written in these books. For example, there
have been periods in European history where it was felt that it was
the duty of Christians to slaughter the infidels, while in the Ottoman
empire the right of Christians and Jews to practise their religion
unmolested was upheld by the Sultan. This was consistent with the
Quran's attitude towards "people of the Book".
