You throw out figures without giving them a thought.
I should be verifying it, I agree, the article which I read mentioned Arab not Saudi Arab.
Honesty from you. You did not hum and haw like some other defenders of the one true faith. An unabashed admission that your Prophet was intolerant. I admire your honesty.
I don't think, you believe in my honesty, you are just feeling happy that you got something (though apparently) against Islam.
Then why are you a Muslim. The religion was meant only for those in the Arabian Peninsula. Why did his followers go pillaging from Spain to India preaching and converting and persuading unwilling populations to see the truth of Islam.
Prophet's message were for everyone, however Judgment of God were to implemented on Arab's only because it is God's rule that He makes some people lesson for others. By rewarding the believer Arabs and punishing the rejecter Arabs, God gave the lesson to all mankind that Day of Judgment will surely come and people will get what they have done.
But you say that there are a million Copts in the Arabian peninsula. Why don't the Muslims starting converting them or driving them out.
Because Judgment of God is over after the Prophet and now will be held for the one last and final time Day of Judgment. In this final Judgment, all mankind will be included.
This is from your post of February 4: .....
The words of Quran are brief but comprehensive; they give different shades of meanings; there is no scientific error in Quran, all these errors are because of translations.
