A few questions for you my dear Salah al-Deen:

And who invaded the Middle east in 632 CE for no reason what so ever but to collect ghanima? Oh I forgot that you know no Arabic! booty that is.

And who was told by Allah that the collected ghanima, booty that is, and 1/5 of this booty was to go to Muhammad and his Allah (Surat al-Anfal)? Oh I forgot to add to enslave, rape and pillage in the name of Allah.

And who destroyed the great civilizations of the Middle East from 632 CE and afterwards? And I include here the great Persian Empire, the Byzantine Empire. This indeed can be regarded as a crime against humanity.

And who destroyed the food basket of the Middle East in the late antique period and that is Egypt, and in less than 100 years the total population of the country dropped and was not to return to the same levels in the late antique period until the 19th century?

And who is responsible for the decline of the great cities of learning of the late antique period eg: Alexandria, but the invading Arabs?

And who is responsibe for the decline of the great languages of the Middle East of the late antique period and I include here: Syro-Aramaic, Greek, Hebrew and Coptic and got them replaced by a foreign and defective language called Arabic? And I' sure that you are aware of the centrality of link between language and culture. Shift in language means destruction of culture.

And to add insult to injury without the these same groups that were the victims (Iraninas, Egyptians, Syrians,, etc...) of Arabian imperialism we would not have had an Arab/Muslim civilization. The rule of the Arabs in their civilization? It was marginal at beast. Arabs did what they always did best and that is: fight, kill innocent people, rape women, enslave anyone they can get their hands on, collect the mafia tax AKA jizya, and then have the audacity to tell their victims that all these atrocities were done in the name of their Allah. So much for Allah and his religion.

I guess I'm going to be stopping here at around 700 CE. If you wish that I can go on with more Arab crimes against humanity just let me know....
