If we where to pick a religion to get our morals from, I wouldn't pick one that endorses the whole sale slaughter of nations including non-combatants, women and children.
Why not pick Jainism? It prescribes non-violence in all forms.

"... endorses the whole sale slaughter of nations..."
I, too, despise Islam.
Christianity certainly doesn't say this and the conquest wars recorded in Joshua were one-time deals, unlike the open-ended murder called for in the Koran.
Were I in the market for a new religion, I'd go with Pastafarianism.
