I come from a landless lower-middle class hindu Brahman family. So I do not know why I have to answer questions for christians and Europeans.

That X did something bad is no justification for Y's misdeeds or evil intentions. No human society can develop decently if such arguments ("He did it so what's wrong if I do it") are allowed. Do not argue like little squabbling children.

Criteria of fascism: Treatment given to ex-members, non-members and women. Total control over education, media and self-glorifying history-writing. Excessive adulation of a person, family or clan. Belief in the providential finality of a particular ideology, book or person. Etc. Does actual islam (=submission= mental slavery) not satisfy all these criteria for being called a fascist ideology? Fascism is inherent in islam – in the very name islam.

"strike terror in their hearts", "cut off their finger-tips" commands the kuran about those oppose islam. This proves that kuran is a source of terrorism and ruthlessness. In the hadith there are stories of Mohammad getting people killed brutally because they refused to bow down in front of his manipulations. (How many muslims have the intelligence to recognise that the kuran is not a book of guidance but of manipulations?)

Talk of imperialism and every one point to Europeans. What about arabs, turks, afghans and muslims in general? Did the arabs / muslims not invade Europe in 710 AD some 300 years before the crusades? Modern europeans imperialism begins in the 16th century, 200 years after turks had taken over a large part of south-east Europe.

If I am criticising islam then stick to that point – do not try to escape by pointing out to the sins of others. The others' sins will be dealt with too. But not one adjusted against the other. Islam claims to be the last final perfect message – hence the norms and standards that muslims have to fulfil and demonstrate are going to be much tougher (than those by christians etc.). Are you cringing about that? Then do not make big boastful claims. Muslim propaganda say that non-muslims will all go to hell and only muslims will be paradised – then prove that you deserve it. Why be a cry-baby?

Do not restrict yourself to reading islamic self-glorification propaganda. Read also what the non-muslims have experienced / found about actual islam (not some imaginary idealised islam).

Pity that we non-muslims have to waste our time and energy telling the same thing all over again and again to new closed-minded muslims. Islam is the biggest producer of a growing ...population of closed-minded submitters.
