Muslims believe the lies they were taught

Reader comment on item: Islam's Future [Can Be Modern]

Submitted by Julian Frantzman (United States), May 27, 2003 at 18:47

"Islam is a Religion of peace". "Christianity and Judaism have been responsible for atrocities while Islam has only wanted peace and tolerance". "Islam always gave protection to non-Muslims". "Islam conquered a large portion of the world through peace and love, not war".

These are the lies you hear every day on forums like this or from Muslims in the street, or in Newspapers. These are the lies the Muslims tell their children. These are lies they are taught in the Mosque.

There is a reality. Islam conquered the middle east, north africa, central asia, Indonesia, and even parts of Europe. When Islam took control of nations like Israel, Egypt, Pakistan, Iraq and Saudi(modern day states) there were large minority populations of Jews, Christians and other religions in those states. What happened to those people? Did they peacefully convert? No. Beginning with Islams conquering of what is today Saudi Arabia they massacred and forcefully converted all non-beleivers. They few that were not killed were not allowed legal recourse in the courts, could not hold government jobs, and had to wear distinctive clothing(Muslims say they were 'protected', more like persecuted). When Islam took what is today Israel many christians lived there and many christian landmarks existed. The Muslims destroyed them and put Mosques where churches had been.

When Islam conquered Iraq and Iran large minority communities existed. These christian and pagan communities as well as the Assyrians, were put to the sword and none exist today. As recently as the 1940s Jews were still being massacred by Muslims. In North Africa Islam massacred all the Christians who had been living there and none exist today. In Turkey the Muslims slaughtered all the Armenian Christians that lived there in 1915.

What happened to the Hindus in Muslim controlled Pakistan and Bangladesh? They were murdered, raped and killed, none exist today. What is happening to Christians in the Sudan and Nigeria where Islam is expanding? They are being raped massacred and killed off, in 20 years few will be left alive.

... When Muslims move into a new area they quickly begin forcefully converting others and forcing others to accept their dietary laws. They suppress women. They build their Mosques on the existing churches (As was done with the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, it had been one of the greatest churches in christendom. And as was done in India where Mosques were built on Hindu temples). ...

A thousand years ago christian Europe was threatened by Islam on every front. Christian communities were being exterminated in the wake of Islamic conquest. It was at this time that Europeans United under leaders like Charles Martel and Pope Urbane II to stop the Islamic menace. Christians took up the sword because they understood that their way of life was in peril. Today Christian Europe is weak. It is opening the gates to Islam while at the same time attendance at church is at its lowest point ever(3% attend christian chruches in Europe on average). Christian European political parties(in some countries Muslims number 10%) are bowing down to the Muslim lobby. In Eastern europe, where christianity is still strong, Muslims have suppressed Christians in places like Bosnia, Albania and Macedonia. Yet western europe has sided with the Muslims ...

There was a time when the armies of Kublai Kahn had reached Baghdad, the richest city in the world. When the muslim defenders put up resistance the Mongols slaughtered more then 100,000 Muslims. Unfortunately, the Mongols were not successful at fighting Islam. If they had we would not be faced with this threat today.
