in response to reader comment: ethnocentric [Judaeo-Christian] focus

You are indeed an amazing individual simply by coming to conclusions based on your misinterpreted words. I did not say that I wished I was a Jew; what I did say is that I would not mind if I was. Furthermore, I find quite surprising that based on a few of my words, you have determined that I'm overcome by mythology. What information do you have that you have labeled me as mythological? I'm not interested in mythology, and in fact I'm an avid book reader and most of my interests are in history.

I'm presently reading a book by Martin Gilbert titled "The Righteous". It's a historical book focused on the 6 million Jews that were killed by the Nazis and how Germans, Polish, Ukrainians, French and many other individuals risked their lives to save the Jews. By the way, I certainly hope that you are not offended that the French risked their lives to save Jews. Having read many of your articles, I'm sure you would not have risked a pet mouse to save any Jews.

Did you know that there are approximately 5.5 million Jews in Israel? More Jews were killed by the Nazis. You state that I'm demonizing Islam. What you don't know is that I've studied the Qur'an by 3 different authors and I've studied the Hadiths and the history of Muhammad. Did you know that Muhammad led his army into 70 plus attacks, many of them on business caravans transporting trade goods. Did you know that Muhammad attacked a Jewish tribe, built a fire on the chest of a leading Jew and killed him in order to find where he may have hidden his money and that same evening he took the same man's eighteen year old wife in order to have sex with her and then subsequently gave her to his friend? Did you know that Muhammad had 23 wives? Did you know that Muhammad married a nine year old child so he could have sex with her? Did you know that the 19 attackers of the Twin Towers in New York were Muslims and sixteen of them were from Saudi Arabia? Did you know that Muhammad could neither read or write and suffered from epilepsy? Did you know that while Muhammad was in a cave, he was overcome by an epileptic seizure and Gabriel, supposedly an angel of God came to him, squeezed him by the throat and said "recite" and that the Arabic word for recite is "Qur'an"?

My last point is that you continue referring to me as ethnocentric. I'm of Ukrainian heritage, but I was born in Canada and I've never stated or believed that I'm from a superior race of people. Now if I was French, I would most assuredly believe that I was from a superior race. By the way are you from a superior race? From reading your articles it has become obvious that you know very little of history but you have no trouble writing articles that would lead us to believe that you are an important historian and you certainly have no problem demonizing those who do not agree with you.
