My dear Mo why did the Aabs invade the Middle East and beyond starting in 633CE. I suspect that they tell you in you glorious madrassa that the Arabs did so in-order to spread islam. If so why would your Allah resort to using violence and war to spread the wrod of the god of the universe if Allah is indeed the God of the universe.?
You see my dear Mo your Allah, if he is really omnipotent, he would have been able to change the hearts and minds of us infidels at the blink of an eye and convert all of us to Islam. Your Allah was indeed asking the help of mere mortals to spread his religion. Do you see how absurd this is? And do you know what this means? It means that your Allah is not omnipotent, and if he is not so, he ain't no God.
And like I said the Pope was correct, the Islamic doctrine of Jihad (holy war) is irrational and it cannot be the wish of a real God.
As for the Islamic mafia taxes (Jizya and kharj taxes) what would you like to know? Well in a few words or less your Allah declares in Q9:29 that people of the book what ever that is must pay a tax called jizya. How much? only allahu-a3lam! Why? because Allah says so! Oh I forgot the 3Ulams tafseer is this tax is for protection of those infidles. Now the question is: to portect the infidels from whom? What do you think our dear Mo? And I forgot to tell you about the ghanima (the loot) well your Allah and his rasul the caravan raider and Arabian warlord were to keep 1/5 of the loot (see Surat al-anfal and Kitab al-Jihad by Malik) collected from the infidels.
al-Kharj tax? Well when Muslims realized that they can tax the infidels even more they came up with this kharj tax on land.
Now you know more about looting by Muslims, the mafia taxes on infidels be it al-kharj tax or the infamous jizya tax.
Now how would you like if the Brits tax you a jizya like tax to protect you unless you convert to, let us say Hinduism? I would bet you a buck that you will convert at the blink of an eye. Now you understand why did your poor ancestors that were first brutalized by the likes of Mahmud of Ghazni had to endure massacres and then the jizya tax. Shame
And here is a bonus point for you: Did you ever think why is the Qur'an silent about Hinduism and Buddhism and Jainism? Could it be because Allah was a local Arabian deity that did know anything beyond the limits of Arabia? But if so he is not the God of the Universe and he is for sure the God of the arabs only.
But like I say: you ain't no Arab.
