It started in the 7th century AD

Reader comment on item: Istinja' with the Torah and New Testament
in response to reader comment: All's fair in love and war

Islam started bulldozing other religions in the 7th century AD. You can even see it in the Qu'ran. Part of their "bulldozing" involved ... about other religions. Surah 9:30 of the Qu'ran says that the Jews call Ezra the Son of God the way the Christians call Jesus Christ (I am a Christian who has lived cheek by jowl alongside Jews my entire life, save when I lived in the Far East, have read their books, and argued with them, and NEVER heard anything like this from Jews). Surah 5:116 says the Christian Trinity includes Mary, when everone who knows the slightest about Christianity knows that the Trinity is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Surah 8:38-39 demands ceaseless fighting against non-Muslims who do not convert. Srah 4:157 says Jesus did not die on the cross.

Islam's bulldozing, bullying attitude was there in the beginning. It's out now because Muslims sense that the West is weak.
