Reader comment on item: Servants of Allah: African Muslims Enslaved in the Americas
in response to reader comment: Farah is wrong on three counts

Submitted by Graham (United States), Feb 21, 2015 at 21:48

If Mohammed forced conversions by the sword in the 7th century, how do Muslims have the moral high ground to complain about conversions of Muslim slaves to Christianity. I do not believe for a minute that slaves from Africa were forced to convert to Christianity. There is no evidence of this, except in the imaginings of Muslims, who have exteme difficulty with the idea that anyone would voluntarily give up Islam as their faith, and hold Christianity in contempt, just as the do Judaism and all other religions. The Quran is the root cause of Islamic intolerance. The only reason why non-Muslims defend Islam is because they are utterly ingnorant of the faith. The secularirts in this country are blind to the differences between Prophet's call to jihadic violence, violence condoned by the Quran, and the violence of wayward Christians. They cannot see that the former is a matter of doctrine, a tenet of the religion, and the other waywardness in the teachings of Christ.

The New Testament was a reformation of the Biblical teachings of the Old, but Islam has nothing of the kind to temper the violent tendency of Mohammed. Most Muslims do not conduct violent jihad because they have made a choice not to, not because their Prophet's god prohibits it. Mohammed committed violent jihad. I ask those of you who are Muslims, denounce Mohammed for conquering the Holy Land and forcing the conversion of Jews and Christians to convert, die or migrate. If you do not, I have to presume you agree with his methods and will retain my reasons for "Islamophobia." Tell me you do not support the purging of homosexuals, and apostates.
