I guess we can now challenge Mu'een to focus his question on Islam itself. What has Islam done for today and tomorrow that history will record as beneficial to peace and advancement?

I highly doubt that history will record suicide bombings, beheadings, genocide, censorship, suppression of freedom, suppression of information and education, supression of rights, intolerance, rape, sexism, mutilation, and pedophilia as "beneficial contributions" to humanity. And that is indeed a good summary of Islam's current "contributions" to the world.

So Mu'een...can you, without resorting to a 4,000 word epic of revisionist history, obsfucation, and propaganda, apply that belief of yours to Islam and show us what positive contributions Islam is currently making to the world today that history will record as "beneficial"?

This ought to be good!
