Kassim, what do I care that in Greece Christianity resisted? are you sad because islam hasn't been successful enough to wipe away all the other religions from the face of the earth?
Here's the reason why non-muslims were still present in the ottoman empire. The lack of intelligence, ability, education of the muslims. YOU muslims needed someone else to do the jobs you are not able to do. Not only that, you needed the jyza. If the whole population becomes muslims you have no more jyza and no more of your favourite sport, which is killing and harassing christians and jews
It's a well known fact that during the ottoman empire they stopped accepting conversions because they needed the precious money from jews and christians that were the only productive part of society.
"It is history that Muslims rule in Spain left enough christians in Spain who were enough in numbers to kill muslims themselves in case they were not ready to convert to catholicism or to export them into America through Columbus."
are you sad that your ancestors didn't practice the muslims favourite hobby, genocide, on spain?
"It is history that there were more than 40 percent of Christians in Turkey in the 1914 even after Muslims ruled Turkey for more than 5 centuries. Those christians left Turkey just to have more comfortable life in Europe. Muslims were not responsible for that."
you are so deluded it's a pity to think how you can survive with such a few brain cells. Anatolia was a rich area BEFORE MUSLIMS, what happened?
"There is no history to say that any Muslim military invaded western saharan Africa or Indonesia. But still those regions are Muslim majority areas in the world."
FORCED CONVERSIONS, your religion is like a mafia clan, you can join but you cannot leave.
If you think your cult is so strong why every other proselitizing act is FORBIDDEN and heavily punished in EVERY muslim country?
"So it is better for the west not to repeat the same worn-out slogan - Islam spread thru sword. "
islam is spread by bloodshed
