Why Islam Could Never Finish Conquests in Post Christian Environments:
Questions abound:
There has been a lifelong search for answers about the Christian (Messianic) mission directive to evangelize the Middle East, only to find that within the lifetimes of the original adherents of the Jewish Rabbi Who was crucified for Israel's people, there were multiples reasons why they were frustrated in the cause for the next few hundreds years; then came Islam. Question: how was Islam able to detract from the Christian mission so easily and gain converts from Christianity into Islam? For this student of such things, a better understanding of the Biblical pronouncements that tells of how that happened is better understood for the reasons below.
Dr. Pipes' excellent contribution to the academia of ancient antipathies against a Judeo-Christian induced changes of religious influences around the then known world of raging empires and their ever ranging of territorial conquests that built upon more ancient tribal rivalries, such enmities over flowing more and more, without any end sighted on the near term horizon; neither finding any resolve for any future civilizations (eastern-oriental or western-occidental), the times we find ourselves in now.
Part two is now being looked forward to with anticipation.
For this observer, after having many exchanges with Dhimmi No More and now cross-referencing the keys in those discussions and that shown here by Dr. Pipes, brings another set of issues to closure and brings closer the reasoning of how the Hebrew Holy Scriptures are indeed the prescient tomes of spiritual knowledge that reconciles the fact that Islam was not set to rule the world, but would be instrumental in bringing about the calamities that do lead to the final warfare that buries any chance of another empire achieving supremacy after the last one is vanquished. Thanks, Dr. Pipes.
