Abu Nuwas...

i couldnt help but laugh when i saw your comment regarding Islam "re'conquering" .

The early Moslems did not see themselves as "conquering" the Holy Land. Rather, they were "RE-conquering" it - taking back what was originally theirs as proclaimed by God.

The promised land was in fact PROMISED to the jews, not to the ARABS or Muslims, through Moses and many other old testament prophets.. i'd give you a example but i'm sure you would be able to find them in any chapter in that book. And i'm sure you believe in the old testament...you were told to do so through the quran.

So therefore Muslims of the time were actually Conquerors,and their Conquest has not stopped.
