Reader comment on item: Distinguishing between Islam and Islamism
in response to reader comment: 1.8 Million Christians converting to Islam because they actually believe in it makes me laugh, but 1.8 million converting because money issues, pressure, social climbing, promotions, threats, to divorce ,to marry several women….etc. makes more sense.

You are right there are muslims convert to christianity and others converts to islam , my only advice to you is to go and read to know about what you are writing because it seems to me that you are just encouraging some people (who may be know nothing about islam) to hate islam and muslims but you will not succeed .. revise yourself and go read and talk with all people not just the people you need to fill out your web page.
