... There is no such thing as forced conversions within Islam. Please can you tell me how many Muslims armies actually invaded Malaysia (highest muslim population) ?

Any non muslims living in a muslim state are to pay jizya, which is a tax paid to the state. By paying this, in the event of war with another country the non muslim people do not have to participate in the war, as it is the Muslims duty to protect them and there places of worship.

Muslims regard both christians and jews as the people of the book.
