Wrong concepts and wrong view of history. If religion is to be judged by its followers, then more people were killed in the two wars fought by and among the Christian West than all killings in history. Your version of history if lopsided and it will not be possible for people like you to see reason. It is useless to discuss anything with people who have a single vision. End of discussion"

What 2 wars? If youre talking about world war I and II, their motivations weren't religious...

So please be more precise...

My version of history? guess I share it with many, as you share your version with many.

Let's face1 fact. History is often written by it's victors, not others. Why do you think in america history lessons in schools are so terrible? They have still a lot of their past to cover up. Why is the Western History lessons more elaborate? Because they don't have to hide so many past mistakes as the next ruler did feel like publicating the mistakes of his predesessor. Perhaps you should more trust our history books about your history and we might look at yours for ours... but don't cut off a source. that for sure is pointing to stupidity.

At least on the last part we agree... "It is useless to discuss anything with people who have a single vision." Or rather, it's useless to discuss things with people with a closed mind.

Still I talk to them, wanna know why? Because in their closed mindedness there still might be info I can learn from... them not being able to learn from me is their own sad choice (If they ever had any).

You ending a discussion is a nice thing that makes you end this talk with ease... Your own faith does tell me something about this and that is that you are not professing your faith as you should be. you gave up on me... shame... not that I have to put shame on you, your own true faithful will do as will your ALLah.

Regards.
