being ruled by Islam..as of course did the Jews.
Yes, there were periodic massacres and persecutions...as by the mad
Caliph Al-Hakim...but these were the exceptions, never the rule and they
were far less than the persecution Christians brought on each other. Far
less. It is a fact that the Romans martyred nowhere near the numbers
of Christians as they did when THEY turned Christian...it is an
intolerant sect to say the least. "
Yes indeed, that it was the notion in the early stages, the Christians were suffering from the Persians and the Byzantine hegemony a lot, and they were thinking the new invaders will make their life easier, YES for a short time where they were trying to get the hearts and minds of the local population, UNTIL they got the GRIP on power then everything started to go bad.
Now, it is a mockery that even you are defending Islam, YOU BY YOUR OWN WORDS acknowledger their atrocities, Isn't it? and when you bring the name of one Muslim ruler al-Hakim , you describe him a MAD MAN, what about the same to be applied to the WESTERN CHRISTIAN rulers, to be some mad men did this or that, and don't forget that is no Christian country is having the only law which govern their country to be Christian, BUT there is NO MUSLIM country that EXCLUDES the Islamic law, and it means every action they do is based on their religion, while on the other hand the Christian countries they practice the CIVIL LAW .
" ... But in these lies you people spread about Islam DID to Christians and how persecuted them ... just as was done to wards JEWS a short while ago ..."
Unfortunately, you call yourself Assyrian, and you accuse me of inserting things that doesn't have anything to do with the SUBJECT, but for God's sake who is talking here about the JEWS - these Evil people - while you forgetting our own GENOCIDE at the hands of the Muslims, Turks, Q...S, Iranians and Arabs - Simel Massacre -
" ...The Christians killed by Muslims at Hims/Homs , by YOUR OWN STATEMENT , WERE REBELS ... Is it a bad thing to kill rebels ... of course, as it is to kill anyone ... but who doesn't do it ?
At the outset, the above statement IS NOT MINE, but I am quoting a HIMS WEBSITE in their introduction to the City of Homs in Syria. Then REMEMBER the Muslim Arabs were INVADERS and OCCUPIERS , so people will rebel when they see that their Churches turned to Mosques and putting some harsh rules on their action and dress, BUT to eliminate people that is a GENOCIDE no more or less.
In conclusion, I am sure no matter what I say will persuade or convince you , for a simple reason that you people are programmed to act this way, but one thing I will say, that for sure there are a few who are in the same circle, BUT I AM SURE the majority of outsiders and Assyrians that never agree with you period . In any event you are free to your thoughts and actions and I am free in mine too, so please respect my ideas as I am respecting yours and remember that I am proud ASSYRIAN nationally and Christian religiously and thank you .
