Dear Dr Pipes, In the above message DNM asks Muslims to learn the history of 'their own people'. Muslim readers and religious scholars should confirm or deny it but I think in Islam there is no concept of 'your own people'. Islam is the onlr right thing and every other group of people is wrong and disowned. If I recall correctly, Islam encourages effective disowning one's own parents if they oppose a person's conversion to Islam.
