While the "Islamist" (Muslim) will try to say that they are a religion of peace they ignore their own history. Islam has a clear history of conversion by conquest, all the way back to its founder, Muhammed. This has not changed and is still used. In every country that Islam has taken over anyone who is not a Muslim is considered a second class citizen and is not allowed to freely practice their religion, in fact even after the Taliban was ousted from power in Afghanistan, non-muslims have lost their property, freedom and lives in the name of Islam and what recourse do they have legally? NONE. If they even attempt to go to the local police they are told to stop bothering them.

Is the above an isolated instance, no! During both Gulf Wars to protect another Islamic country, Arabia. Troops of the coalition were denied freedoms related their individual beliefs. Why? Simply because they were not Muslim. In fact, if they took their bibles or other non-islamic books off the base and were caught they were subjected to local heresy against Islam laws. All this while they were there to protect this closed and non-islamphobic society.

Also, remember the civil war in Chad? That was a war initiated by Muslims against non-muslims. Millions of non-muslims lost their lives, property and their very freedoms. It is unknown to the extent how many non-muslims were sold into slavery simply because they were NOT muslim.

And if one were to look into history, Islamic leaders all over the Middle East allied themselves with Germany during WWII. Why? the reasons are numerous but the top two are: The NAZI hatred of the Jews and anti-colonialism.

What I've written above can be easily verified by a simply search of the internet.
