Reader comment on item: Uncovering Early Islam
in response to reader comment: Peace or war?

Submitted by the Grand Infidel of Kaffiristan (Australia), Jun 10, 2012 at 22:47

"Islam was spread through invitation, the sword was against those who refused to allow Islam from being spread."

Yes , as sad as that admission is - it is true. But the corollary of this is that the holders of any ideology, having superior military technology can vanquish any group of people they see fit.

Or does it only apply to muslim vanquishers, Mr Ismail? If it is non-muslims seeming to do the slightest bit of vanquishing of hostile islamist forces - we get to see enormous amounts of squealing from muslim 'victims'.
