lol. The 90% who reverted to Islam did so over a period of 1300 years (There are population records in Egypt over hundreds of years to show how the christian population slowly and incrementally reverted to Islam). If they were forced to convert by the point of the sword, like the muslims in Spain were, why are there still 10% christians there (I suggest you visit countries like Syria, Lebanon, Egypt and Palestine and see for yourself how many christians there are)? Anybody who is forced will be forced to do so in 10 years, and all 100%, not 90% over 1300 years in an incremental fashion. We dont buy your propaganda, the westerners and their allies do.
