"That is how they behaved and spread in every country they went through, Syria, Iraq, Jordan and all the other so-called Arab countries, WERE ALL NON-MUSLIMS some 1400 years ago, look at them now, and read how the original people of those countries were treated by MUSLIM INVADERS. That was also the case in countries like Morrocco,Egypt, Algeria, Albania,Turkey... All about kill who does not convert to Islam.

They even occupied Spain for 800 bloody years, and they are mad now cause they lost THEIR PARADISE!! Yes they call it still their land, and they look to the day when they get it back!!"

You are quite right Dr., Muslims did control a considerable part of the world but their rule was just and that is why they were successful where ever they went and for such long periods of time. If your comments are taken literally Dr. then the result would be no Jews in the world and all the Spanish people would end up being either Muslims or should have been wiped off the face of this earth. Your statements smell of hatred and extremism. Surely you can see that after Israel the biggest population of Jews lives in Iran. How come they have survived the tyranny of Muslim rule, why are they not suppressed and killed or have been forced to convert to Islam.

The answer is quite simple, the Jews in Iran like the country they live in because their rulers are just and have treated them fairly despite what Bush and Blair have been saying about Muslims and Iran in particular. If the Jews were given grief don't you think the Western media would have had the Iranian presidents skin by now.

Therefore Dr. I suggest you read history the way it happened and not the way it has been translated by extremists and Islamophobics.
