Salma,
There Seems To Be An Influx Of Professors Of Islam On The Forum Lately. May I Suggest That If You Want To Convert People To Islam ,you Make Arguments That Are Brief,to The Point And Actually Persuade Someone Of Its Benefits.worldy News Magazines And Hiliary Clinton(your Examples Of How Big The Growth Of Islam Is On Another Thread)is Not A Reason For Anyone To Consider Converting To Islam.

I am not fond of christianity but at least its not as patriarchal as islam is.

If you want to be a doormat for someone, then that is your right but I can assure you, I will never join that club.

Default The Fall of the Middle East

Once upon a time from Persia and all across Northern Africa, there were great cities and culture. Now, that part of the world is nothing more than a dung hole. What's left of what is decent will be gone as soon as oil becomes less valuable. When did the change from world leaders to third world begin? Try around 600 A.D.

You have a extreme revisionist version of history. There were big empires after 600 A.D.

Have you forgotten about science and education which flourished under the Islamic empire(s) in north and west africa during these times? The decline of the Muslim world happened during the decline of the Ottoman empire and the rise of colonialism. Educate yourself.
