They did not exactly cross borders with rosary in their hands

Dear Dr Pipes:

Peter Hall states that Muslim slavery killed millions of people. Some people will argue with that number. But even a much lighter case against Muslim aggression is string enough. Arabian Pennisnsula, Persia, Northern Africa, Turkey, Sindh and rest of India, Current day Iraq, Jerusalem and Spain, anywhere the Muslims went after the birth of Islam, they went on the horse back with a sword in their hand (is there an exception?). When they crossed a border they did not exactly have a rosary in their hand. Past cannot be erased but it surely can be acknowledged. Any one among Islamists who is courageous enough to admit it? Or knowledgeable enough to deny it?
