IT DESTROYED ALL THE UNIQUE AND DIVERSIFIED CULTURES OF THE MIDDLE EAST! It replaced the Kurdish, Chaldean, Assyrian, Syriac, Coptic, and Zoroastrian cultures of the Middle East with the Arab culture!

Sometimes Muslims are too quick to condemn the west of its faults with racism, but they were able to overcome that a long time ago, and are now not afraid of admitting it, instead of denying that racism which is strongly prevalent in ALL Islamic societies.

I myself am a Copt, who cherishes his own Coptic Culture, and am deeply saddened that you had to take away my language and heritage. Where the rulers in Egypt ordered that anyone who dare speak a word in Coptic would have his tongue amputated. These are the cultures your religion has helped destroy!
