RE: Jaladhi

Reader comment on item: Anti-Muslim Racism?

Submitted by Amin Riaz (United Kingdom), Nov 25, 2005 at 07:15

"Your hypocrisy knows no bounds. If you call USA's action immoral, what do you call 1400 years of Islamic invasion, plunder, murder, rape of the world ranging from Europe to Indonesia and beyond? And, this is continuing in many parts of the world even today. I am sure you are aware of your own "proud" history."

I would really like to learn of this great plunder by muslims of the world? (your take)

Up to the point of British Empire - all great civilisation pretty much behaved like each other. All had their good and bad points (including the British Empire). Though one of the unique points about "Islamic Civilisation" is that it is known by religion rather than race, national or territorial grouping.

Islamic history has some good points and a lot of bad points. So what?

What Islam DID NOT DO was "rape" the world. It was not a conquest like British Empire. It would be interesting to know why you think that is.
