Interesting. Both Christians and Jews -whether they like it or not -have experienced the age of Enlightenment which has left a deep and indelible trace humanizing and rationalizing their hearts and minds. Will you kindly tell us when exactly the Moslems -both fat or slim,religious or very religious (sorry for having never heard of 'irreligious Moslems'), lazy or ambitious etc. etc. had their age of Enlightenment ?

And please don't tell us they will only have it in 300 years or so since they are now living in 1433 hijra era and so, defintely ,they will be ripe for Enlightenment around 1730 hijra era as we were too in terms of our Christian era, giving us Moslem Voltaires, Moslem Diderots, Moslem Humes, Moslem atheists and Moslem scholars boldly exposing numberless unprovoked Moslem aggressions and crimes against humanity and identififying Mahomet as the worst criminal and genocidal maniac of all times !
