"The reality nowadays is that Christians and other Kaffirs tend to zoom in and focus on the screwups by a few Muslims and then lay claim to saying that Islam is bad." - We respect the religion , but fear the worshipers and people in authority who misuse their power. And thanks for calling us Kafirs , all the time.
"The Christians know about it but refuse to accept the truth that the Gospel of Barnabas contains." - Church leaders and theologians have dismissed this book (wiki) and countless others, and not even part of Christian literature. Some Muslims took advantage (this website set up to propogate the views) since this 'gospel' suggest the link betwen Christianity and Islam. Here is the article from Muslim.net where it was summarized :-
"Imagine you were a Muslim who was told that someone found a lost "book" from God. Among other things, this "Sura" mentioned that Mohammed sailed on a boat to Mecca, and this Sura contradicted the teaching of the Bible and contradicted the Qur’an on ten points. The oldest manuscript of the alleged Sura was written in Italian, which is both not a Mideastern language and did not even exist in the time of Mohammed. Finally, this supposed Sura had some historical customs, which did not occur until 1,000 years later in Europe.
It is safe to say a Muslims would probably have a few questions, to say the least. Before you embrace this medieval forgery as an authentic work that shows the "real" teachings of Jesus, remember that this work contradicts the Qur’an, too."

Islamic scholars have done more studies on this book and now Christian scholars are taking a look. Both side agreed that it is a fabrication from medieval times, years after Jesus or Mohammad. If only the writer reads more than to parrot half truths.GRAND FINALE
(Drum rolls please )
"I for one am doing what I can within my means to clear the air about Islam and in my own way share what I have come to learn about Islam and what it really is? "- I am honestly confused if your 'good' intent of daawah ( conversion) persuaded me. I am not perfect and I do not like hypocrites. I prefer be repeatedly called a kafir. If i become a muslim, I am not a Muslim but mualaf (convert). Mualaf sounds like a bread, i prefer kafir which sounds like coffee or lime. Thanks, but no thanks.
