Some questions perhaps you can answer for me G. Bisvas

Which non-muslim group of people did not snatch land from others?

Did the Christian Europeans not snatch land from the Native Americans through violence, deceit, terror etc?
Did the Christian Europeans not snatch land from South American native peoples through violence, deceit, terror etc?
Did the Jewish Europeans not snatch land from Palestinians through violence, deceit, terror etc?
Did the European Christians not snatch land from Africans through violence, deceit, terror etc?
Did the US americans not snatch land from Mexico through violence, deceit, terror etc?
Did the British Christians not snatch land from Australian Aborigines through violence, deceit, terror etc?
Did the British Christians not snatch land from Mauri in New Zealand?

Have the people whose land was snatched been incorporated or assimilated into the societies created by these land snatchers?

Did not traditionally Christian countries give birth to ideologies such as imperialism, colonialism, fascism and communism?

And did these ideologies not lead to modern destructive wars such as the Russian Civil War, Spanish civil war, WWI, WWII, Wars of Independence? And all this taking place right in the 20th Century. Are these not recent examples of wars fought by predominantly Chrisitan populations?

Did not traditionally Christian countries give birth to ideologies such as imperialism, colonialism, fascism and communism?

If Islam preaches terror, as you wrote so boldly, then would not the history of the Chritian West lead one to think that Christian/European ideology eventually leads to wars and even genocides?

If Islam preaches terror, as you wrote so boldly, then would not the history of the Christian West lead one to think that Christian/European ideology eventually leads to wars and even genocides?

If one was to examine the history of the West one cannot help but be overwhelmed by the amount of blood shed by Christians and by those that were born in traditionally Christian Western countries, such as Austria and Italy.
