In the last 1400 years, Islam dominantly have controlled Arabian peninsula, middle east and major areas of Asia and Africa. Islam and Muslim rulers gave the right for all people from every other faith to practice their religion. This was NOT the case in ANY other place at that time including the Christian part of the world.

We have all kind of worship places in all Islamic states with except of Saudi Arabia. This was true at the time when Islamic stat (Islamic empire) was the one and only one dominate power in the world. Churches and cathedrals were in the capital of the Islamic stat at that time (Damascus) and all other cities where non Muslim were living. Today they still there, nobody burn them, nobody destroy them and people still go there like what their fathers and grandfathers did for 1400 years.

Still today, we have ten thousand of Jews , millions of Christians and millions of other people from different faiths and believes in these area where Islam had full control and authority for long long time.

At that time, what was the situation in every other place in the world. Did people from other faiths have the chance to practice their believes!!. Did they have the chance to exist!! .

Are you aware of what was Christian white man approach to natives in America or Australia.

Who did practice ethnic cleansing in any land he controlled. Muslims or Christian?

Who did force people to convert to their religion , Muslim or Christian.

If the Muslim did, whey still there are millions of non Muslim in Iraq, Egypt, Syria, philistine, Morocco, Yemen, Pakistan…..and almost every other Islamic state!. No United Nations, no Human rights groups or international media. Killing others were practiced by everybody else. So why they did not do that? Little question for you.
