Out of sheer coincidence, nonstampcollector just put this up today and describes what I'm trying to explain to you in cohesive manner.

Andrew,

Although, I was unable to detect any explicit logical arguments in this clip, it does make an important point; consistency. To correctly understand the Bible (or any other piece of literature), everything must be placed into its proper context. The passages about brotherly love are just as easily misunderstood and abused when they are lifted from their proper context as the passages about violence.

It also contains another implicit message which is dangerous. Unbelievers often misunderstand the moral teachings of the Bible and of the Koran. Therefore, they assume that the two systems are equivalent. Anyone who makes that mistake, and who treats Muslims with the same disrespect which unbelievers often treat Christians, is apt to appear in a youtube video themselves, with their heads separated from their bodies.
