My argument is that Muslims believe almost the same thing as Christians. despite popular belief, Muslims are a peaceful religion. they believe in one god. there are radicals, like Isis and Al quida but there are christian radicals two. haven't you ever heard of the KKK?

Islam is not a religion of peace, contrary to what the instigator has proposed. The Quran itself sates, "And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief or unrest] is worse than killing... but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshiping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun(the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)"(Quran 2:191-193). This clear states to execute non believers disproving the instigators claim. However the main point of this debate is that Muslims believe almost the same thing as Christians. Which is not the case because the Quran makes no mention of Jesus Christ, a messiah figure who is the son of god and allegedly died for our sins. Muslims also do not accept Jesus as their lord and savior further disproving the instigator's claim.

you say that the Muslims do no not worship Jesus, witch is true. but Jesus is a prophet for the Christian faith, just as Mohammed is a prophet for the Muslim faith. and they actually do say that Jesus is real, just that he is a prophet of Islam.
"And in their [the earlier prophets] footsteps We sent Jesus the son of Mary, confirming the law that had come before him. We sent him the Gospel, therein was guidance and light and confirmation of the law that had come before him, a guidance and an admonition to those who fear God." Chapter 5, Verse 46 of the Quran. it also says to honor everybody, regardless of their religion. "O mankind! We created you from a male and a female and made you into nations and tribes that you may know and honor each other (not that you should despise one another). Indeed the most honorable of you in the sight of God is the most righteous." Chapter 49, Verse 13 of the Quran. it also says to always do good things for everybody. "And what will explain to you what the steep path is? It is the freeing of a (slave) from bondage; or the giving of food in a day of famine to an orphan relative, or to a needy in distress. Then will he be of those who believe, enjoin fortitude and encourage kindness and compassion." Chapter 90, Verses 12-17 of the Quran. I don't know where you got your little "exerpt" because that is certainly not from the Quran. I myself am an atheist, but you are wrong on the whole.

7 points to Pro. Reasons for voting decision: I completely disagree with everything Pro said, but Con forfeited several rounds, which is why I am giving all the point to Pro.

[*Reason for non-removal*] Full forfeit debates are not moderated unless the voter votes for the forfeiting side.

Reasons for voting decision: Clear win to Pro. Con's claim that Jesus is not recognized by Islam was disproven by pro's quotes. Con provided aggressive passages from the quran, which pro countered with peaceful passages. There are probably more arguments con could have made, but he did not take advantage of the final two rounds and lost his chance to respond.
