Thank you , Judeo-Christ , for your post and the beautiful parable that best subsumes the problem. Islam ... has no other strength than the weakness of its enemies. And it is as you say the whole kaffir world that is the enemy of Islam ! Islam always lost wherever it was confronted with vigour and united effort. It happened so at Poitiers in 732 or at the gates of Constantinople in 717. Where was Allah and his "prophet" as the Arabs were forced to eat their own excrement in the winter of 716/717 and were being devoured by the hell of Greek fire while approaching the walls of the city where they could rely on no traitors ?

All of these great conquests the Arabs are so giddy about have one common feature. Being unproductive and parasitic in nature the Arabs never conquered anything by their own force alone. It was always some traitors and misguided discontent groups and fateful external coincidences that aided the invaders. In the Byzantine East it was the monophysites or other splitter and schizmatic groups that openly supported the barbarians of the desert against the hated Constantinopolitan orthodoxes. In Spain it was a powerful count (Julian) that in his blind wrath against the king called in the Arabs. He gave them ships to cross the strait of Gibraltar. In Persia it was a bloody prolonged civil war after the lost war with Byzantium that made any effective resistance of the big empire impossible.

History would have been so different with Islam another dead and forgotten religion if all of those defectors and discontent and wishful allies had fewer illusions and reflected a little more on your parable, dear Judeo-Christian. Hopefully , the free world will not succumb to this cadaverous sickening monster by the same mistake.
