Our dear Mozere seems to be fond of issuing headlines to provide us kuffar with not just an incorrect version but a bogus version of what really happened in the case of Egypt in the late antique period

Early christians disfigured ancient monuments of Egypt.

Really? Where? as a matter of fact if our dear Mozere would have taken his time instead of posting this and would have let us say read David Frankfurter's seminal work on religion in Egypt in the late antique period and the "conversion" of Egyptians from the Egyptian religion to Christianity http://www.amazon.com/Religion-Roman-Egypt-David-Frankfurter/dp/0691070547/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1341864072&sr=1-1&keywords=david+frankfurter+egypt he would have realized that Christianity in Egypt could only be seen not as an historical discontinuity but continuity of the old religion and in actual fact Egyptains reshaped the old Egyptian idioms and ideology in a form that allows the old Egyptian religion to be reshaped and incorporated in the new religion and that is Christianity not unlike your so called prophet who claimed that the religion of the Arabs was historical discontuinty from the past when in actual fact this is far from the truth

They burnt down the library of Alexandra.

Really? A muslim that cares about books of infidels! Sobhanallah

Spare me this one

I thought that your masters the Arabs claimed that it was Omar ibn al-khatab ordered Amr Ibn al-3As to burn the library of Alexandria and to use the books as a source of fuel for the many baths in Alexandria

So were the Muslim historians a bunch of liars our dear Mozere?

Oh and which library are you talking about the mother library that was located in the Brochion district or the daughter library that was located in the Serapeum (in the Rakoti district)? and what really happened to the buildings? and what happened to the books? You tell us

Worst of all the Christianised ancient Greeks forgot their culture, this had to be reintroduced to Europe via Muslim scholars.

Bogus reading of history so let us take some baby steps

1. Who really translated the Greek learning?

2. Where was the Greek learning translated to Syriac and then to Arabic?

3. When was the Greek learning it translated and why?

4. Where did these books come from?

5. Who translated the Arabic translations to Catalan and then to Latin and where and when?

I will be looking forward to your answers with great anticipation

Greeks let their monuments be neglected,

Sure and so did the barbarian Turks that invaded the Byzantine Empire and so were your masters the Arabs who destroyed not just their own literary history an in the case of Uthman burning copies of the Qur'an but also in today's wahhabi barbarians burning their own history of salafists in let us say Egypt burning the tombs of Sufi saints in Egypt and the Arab invaders of Egypt used the stones of the very ancient city of Ha ke ptah (Memphis) to build their capital in Egypt at al-Fustat and then later on al-Qataye3 and now the buildings of the city of Memphis are all gone! And what a disaster

they used them as a source of building materials.

Oh I'm shocked! Get serious and stop this nonsense

Later on they went on to burn valuable icons due to christian zeal

A muslim that cares! Spare me this one too but here is a suggestion: Why not give back to the Greeks Hagia Sophia? Deal?

So you see our dear Moazere whose Greek and Armenian and Syrian ancestors were brutalized by the Turkish hordes that invaded the Byzantine Empire I will be waiting for your answers with great anticipation
