Oh, but Muslims are worried

in response to reader comment: Do worry - We are not worried

I've seen it on your precious Al-Jazeera television, about the massive growth of Christianity in Muslim lands in Asia and Africa. It's obviously enough to warrant concern from Muslim top brass.

Also, 3 out of every 4 persons who convert to Islam convert back to their old religions in three years or less.

Oh yes, your sheiks were on TV saying this.

If you are not worried, can you please explain to me why orthodox Islam is based on fear and control, instead of faith?

You see, that is the real difference between Christians and Muslims. Muslims (some of them) impose sharia law out of fear: fear of the Jews, Hindus and Christians, fear of secularism, and the fear of empowerment of women.

I don't suppose you---or any other Muslim reading this---would care to post information suggesting that educated people are turning to Islam. Because all the numbers I see show them disregarding religion altogether. I suppose that's why by some estimates that atheism-agnostics outnumber Muslims. Also, I'm not aware of booming Koran sales anywhere in the West without high concentrations of immigrant Muslims.

Every house, huh? No one in my city or county is Muslim.

The only way Islam has successfully made massive gains in converts is through unjustified violence. Seems like an awful lot of work was done by man (false prophets like mohammed), not God, for Islam.

And you are a fool if you think that only the Palestinians will defend their land.
