Our dear scottindallas it seems that sometimes silence is golden

Every word I've have written is true. You may wish to listen, or you may plug your ears and blather noise like a 3 year old. You have much more research to do. Your suppositions about me are wrong, you are a ignorant, and that is your choice. You refuse to listen. You should learn that the world is full of people who are the same the world over. Islam doesn't have the power to radically/magically change people, nothing does. But, you've reacted irrationally, you're overreacting to threats which aren't real. You're enriching a venal few who are playing on your ignorance and fear to enrich themselves, and serve their own agenda. Many of these people are both keenly interested in emboldening a self destructive, irresponsible Israel; and, are spokespeople for the arms lobby. These people also cheered our stupid invasion of Iraq, which enriched them, but beggared the country financially and our reputation and credibility. They've squandered our ability to lie to the UN, and now, we can't lie our way into invading Iran, or even Syria. See what they cost us? Grow-up, the world is much more complex than these fairy tales.

I read this as you have no answers and you were making things up. Right?

So you are a Muslim from India and why would you pretend to be someone that you are not?

Now you told us that Muslims did not burn great libraries but I did prove to you that Muslim historians the likes of al-Tabari and al-Maqrizi and Ibn abd al-Hakam tell us that Muslims and as per oreders from no other than Omar ibn al-Khatab burnt yes burnt the books in the great libraries in Alexandria and Ctesiphon! and that Uthman also burnt copies of the Qur'an the word of Allah right?

How come you did not know that? and were the these historians liars and islamophobes? or did Muslims indeed burn these great libraries? you tell us
