Muslims are taught a version of history in which islam and muslims are only glorified, and non-muslims (and also non-arabs) are vilified, ridiculed and, at best, ignored.

So if you want to know - really want to know honestly - then you will have to read the non-muslim versions and narrations of history.

Let us suppose you do read these other versions - what use is it anyway? You, as a muslim, will not have the guts to acknowledge any truth in them for fear of repression and boycott through your muslim "brothers".

That settles the matter I think.

Islam is a totalitarian ideology - a muslim asking tough questions to derogate non-muslims is only natural. But does the muslim dare openly ask tough questions about islam, its inherent fascism and imperialism?
