Dear Assim

No battles ever fought in Indonesia?
Don't you ever read the news?
Hundreds of christians have been killed by muslims in Indonesia and churches have been burned.

You are claiming that spreading of islam by sword, is a myth.
So basically you are claiming that history is a myth too?
For surely the history tells us that Muhammad was quite a violent man, not sparing the life of those who critizised him. Actually that pattern is repeating itself today isn't it? The critics of islam can risk to be killed by the followers of the violent Muhammad.

It is scaring that muslims fanatically hold on to 'the possible myth of Muhammad' and deny to investigate the true history!
