I beg to differ with your statement that it is a Western fiction, that Islam was spread by the sword.

Is it fiction that in 725 A.D. in the middle of what was to become the state of France, Charles "the Hammer" Martel faced the Moorish invaders and stopped their advance. Was this event made up for propaganda purposes?

Is it ficition that it took until the year 1492 for the Spanish to finally free their land of the Moorish invaders.?

Is Albania, Bosnia, Herzogevnia a fiction? Or are these European forced converts to Islam a fiction?
