Well if you don't know yet, Islam is the WORLDS FASTEST growing religion. Believe it or Not, The truth hurts.

Islam is the fastest growing religion due to the simple fecundity of its followers, not because it has won adherents through a sincere marketplace of ideas.

Throwing out figures about the growth rate of the Muslim world undermines your deeper points, Khaled, because the numbers game automatically stokes fear in those non-Muslims who are already rattled and suspicious of the Islamic world. Be careful with statistics.
