Sorry, Harrak but "0" is a Hindu invention. The early Arabs brought it to Europe but Arabs did not invent it.

I also followed some of the links you provided about Western "atrocities" and could not find anything that supported some of your exaggerated descriptions.

I congratulate you, on your energy and resourcefulness as you pick and choose your facts and scriptural quotes, exaggerate some facts and ignore others. Though you make unbiased sounds, in the end, your argument is overwhelmingly pro-Islam.

There is no point in your hiding your devout Muslim faith in order to make it sound as if you are unbiased. Anyone capable of independent thought sees through this kind of manipulation of facts and scripture.
