My dear Ali I'm re-posting for a second time what the Pope was really saying and may be we can talk about it;

1. Islam was spread by the sword and by violence and by taxing the poor infidels with the mafia tax aka Jizya. Islam is guilty of destroying the Byzantine Empire, the Persian Empire and of genocides against the Hindus by the likes of Mahmud of Ghazni (there were also mass killings of Hindus by Muslims in the basket case called Bangledash in the early 1970's) , the Armenians by the Turks. If you wish I can provide you with more examples.

2. The so called holy war aka Jihad aka harb muqadassa is nothing but violence and it must be against the will of any God.

3. Muhammad did not bring any new message to humanity. He "borrowed" the fables of the semites from the Bible, and not just that but also the profane literature of the Greeks and Syriac speakers (as in the case of the "Seven sleepers of Ephesus" and called it the story of Ahl al-Kahf and "The Romance of Alexander" and called it the story of "Dhul Qarnain") and called such fiction the word of his Allah!!! So what did Muhammad bring?: He brought violence and hate, jizya, and dividing humanity into dar al-salam and dar al-harb, and declared that Muslims should fight ahl al-kitab (Q9:29) at all times and for no reason until Islam becomes supreme!!! So much for the "no compulsion in religion" and so much for decency.

...Wanna talk about it Ali?
