Mr. Hussain, another muslim happy to criticise a non-muslim cutlure, yet still , by living amongst one demonstrates he would ACTUALLY rather live there than in a sharia compliant muslim country , writes:

"Lets look at the West, the WORLD was almost bankcrupted last year because of the West. "

If you're going to make blanket statements - make sure that they at least appear that they could be plausible. You don't seem to realise that the international banking system is worldwide - not particularly western. It trades in Chinese goods and Chinese Yuan, Russian oil and Russian roubles, Brazilian oil and Brazilian Reals, goods from the EU and Euros, goods from the US and US dollars, UK goods and UK pounds. Incidentally , apart from oil - notice there's not too much in world trade produced by muslim countries. Why would that be? http://www.islam-watch.org/AdrianMorgan/Winston-Churchill-Islamism.htm

One of the contributing factors was that US banks were giving credit to people who were bad credit risks - the so-called 'sub-prime' mortgages. This was one of a series of situations that compounded and brought about a global credit squeeze. People were living beyond their means on credit produced out of thin air. A correction was necessary - and inevitable. So it happened. Did you expect boom times forever Mr.Hussain? Also - it's a testament to the productivity the countries and regions mentioned before that they were able to sustain growth for so long . Now let's look at some of the economies of your co-cultists now: Morocco, Algeria, Sudan, Egypt, Lebanon, Iran, Syria, Jordan, Pakistan ...... hmmm, not exactly booming are they? No breakthroughs produced in medicine or other technologies, little to no social security in any of them..... poor sanitation ..... extremely low incomes....starvation in some cases.... lack of educational opportunities etc etc

"This has never happened in the history of mankind. We have had 2 World Wars caused by Western countries. Add all the wars in our history on this planet and the level of death and destruction will not equal that caused by both the world wars."

That's because of the exponential population growth rates of humans . And also because of technological improvements. One A bomb can wipe out 120,000 people and a huge amount of property much faster than 100,000 swordsman on horses. Also, Communism has wiped out more people worldwide than the 2 European World Wars. And do not forget that the Japanese in 1941 were NOT a Western power. Had they not been so stupid as to provoke the US into a Pacific War - the death toll for WW2 would have been much lower.

The world is in more of a mess now then it ever has been because of the West i.e. poverty, wars, famine, corruption, lack of food, etc. Frankly speaking I have nothing to thank the West for.

"If you study Islamic history and the spread of Islam some lands were fought and conquered and others weren't. "

Which brings us to the issue of the percentage of people killed during those atrocities versus the total number of people alive at that time on the earth. In 1000 AD there were 310 Million people living on this planet. You'll find that the number killed in Islam's spread around that time far exceeds the 60Million/ 2.3 Billion alive in the 1940's.

"Nevertheless, the Musims today of those lands do not regret the coming of Islam to their lands."

Garbage. Iran is full of people who resent the loss of their great civilisation to the scourge of Islam.

"Instead they are greatful and proud to be Muslims."
If you are genuinely proud to be following a pedophile - how can anybody argue against you?

"In contrast no one wants the European Colonialists back, people are glad that they got their independence from them."
Then why are so many, many Muslims sacrificing their 'independence' -- seeking to become part of the fold in those same Western countries????

"On the contrary many millions of Muslims worldwide are calling for the return of the Islamic State and would happily live under it. "
You mean fifth column Muslim hypocrites who live in Western lands and want them to be destroyed so they can live out some glorious muslim myth?
