If the truth is so simple why does it defy Muslims

in response to reader comment: Understanding the Ultimate Truth - Colonialism is Outgrowth of Ancient Empires

Dear Dr Pipes, Reader M Tovey stated something that is so very simple to understand. Mr Tovey said, "how does anyone not believe that Islamisation is just as colonial as any invasive occupation..."

When Islam travelled on horsebacks, with or without Muhammad's presence, it was no different from any other colonial force (in fact it was worse). Why don't Muslims understand this simple fact? Amalgamating religion with Politics is criminal but it is the primary doctrine of Islam. Muslims need to understand that every "islamic" nation is illegitimate (I do not call these nations Islamic; I call tehm islam-occupied).

The only difference between European colonialism and Islamic colonialism is that Islamic colonialism is worse. Much worse. You cannot convert a brown skinned illiterate Indian villager and make him a Briton or Portuguese or French or Chinese by hanging a sword near his neck. But your can very well make him a Muslim by hanging a sword near his neck and forcing him to say the shahada.
