Maori were never exterminated

Don't know where you went to school but it certainly didn't teach you history correctly. The Moriori were the first peoples of New Zealand, they were exterminated by the Maori who hailed from Hawaii and who were originally from a Taiwanese (long before China entered the scene there) tribe. They arrived in their canoes six hundred years ago followed by the Europeans two hundred years ago. Yes, they warred at first but eventually signed the Treaty of Waitangi, intermarried with the Europeans and we all settled down together. Since the Treaty was signed over a century ago, the Maori tribes have been and are still being paid billions in reparations - they also control the fisheries, inland waters and many other aspects of the country. Integration and assimilation have much to offer! You should try it.

I suggest you read Islamic history - the Hindu's were very numerous and when the muslims realised they could never exterminate them completely they made them dhimmis. Thus they procreated even tho' , like Jews Christians and all other religions you tried to exterminate, they were treated as third class peoples. Your argument that if Islam killed ninety million Hindu why are there still Hindus is an old one that has been thoroughly discredited by historians. But Islam certainly did a good job on the poor old Buddhists in Afghanistan!

Allah's ethnic cleansing - not a pleasant history. Certainly not a religion to be proud of and certainly not one which garners respect. Respect is something that has to be earned and the muslim mobs howling around the world today show Islam for exactly what it is - backward, misogynistic. regressive, savage and totally lacking in compassion and credibility. Especially to your own brothers and sisters who by their unfortunate births as muslims will be oppressed by their religion which as usual will blame the rest of the world. We are not responsible for your inability to move forward - Islam is and will always be until you can become rational and cut the apron strings which bind you! Then you will not have to depend on welfare states to feed and clothe you because your own countries cannot.
