What does it mean to "defeat Islam"?

It doesn't have to mean "converting, quarantining, or murdering every Muslim".

All it would take is a seed of doubt, to plant a seed of doubt.

If Muslims, by and large, went around feeling honestly insecure about the absolute truth of their doctrines, this would be a "defeat" in my eyes.

No conversion there, no quarantining, no murdering.

Just planting the seed of doubt, that's all.

This is what "killed" Christianity and it can also "kill" Islam.
