My dear Sohail,

The Muslim crusades? It is jihad aka Holy war or al-harb al-Muqadassa! The Arab invasion of the Middle East was instigated by your Allah (and we have the great Quranic word: Yuharad) and Abul Qasim. Your Allah and Abul Qasim were even supposed to get 1/5 of the loot (ghanima)!! Just amazing.

The Chriastian crusades were done depite of the teachings of Christianity. There is no teachings in Christianity that are even close to the concept of Jihad/Muslim crusades in Islam.

So let me ask you the question again my dear thetruth I mean Sohail: Why did the Arabs invade the Middle East and beyond in the 630's CE?

Hint: The Muslim crusades!

And you have the audacity to talk about the crusades, and how about Mahmud of Ghazni's Muslim crusade against your own people?

At least the crusaders tried to liberate _occupied_ Christian and Jewish lands form the Arabs!

Submitting....
