in response to reader comment: Well, Christians are mostly dying in "Muslim" countries

did you know that the Jews were forbidden from entering Jerusalem since the Romans destroyed it and banished the Jews from entering it. For over 500 years no Jew was able to preside in Jerusalem until Umar bin Al-Khattab conquered Jerusalem in 636 and allowed 70 Jewish families who asked to to enter the Holy city. and then after the Jews started flocking into Jerusalem.

And you tell me the Christians are being killed - come on man be fair - Prophet Muhammad said to the leaders of the Army who conquered Egypt to take care of the people and have mercy on them and treat them well because they are kins, these are coptic Christians. In many places, in Palestine, in Jordan in Lebanon, in Syria, Christian are the most educated, most wealthy - even better than the Muslims in their land - and you tell me that Muslims do not take care of the Christians

I have so many Christian friends, they prefer to be with us better than going to the West - they consider us family and we consider them family too, in my youth my best friends were Christians, travel and living abroad set us apart.

this not only me but many of my native people. what you see in Afghanistan and other places is pure ignorance of religion

Prophet Muhammad said that before the end of time religion knowledge will be lost and killing will increase and open sex will increase even a passing person would say if they would do it behind a wall, and a person will wish to be in the place of a dead person in the grave and travel will become safe even a woman can travel from Iraq to Makkah alone without being accompanied by protectors.

You did not live in a Muslim country to understand the societies there. many Christians do and most of them are happy.

The bad infamous move make about prophet Muhammad became a Muslim and went this year to Makkah to do Hajj.
