Just another example for the Islamaphobists out there that these so called Muslim extremists are NOT supported by Islam.
Yes, kind of like the Nazi party were in Germany were a minority? Regardless of what they became they started out as a small and violent party that rose out of dissatisfaction with the status quo. "Success breeds success", "Those who dare win", ever heard these? It may be a minority of all Muslims in the world, but what about Sunni Muslims in the middle east?
The contents of these Islamic libraries were copied by Christian monks in Muslim/Christian border areas, particularly Spain and Sicily. From there they eventually made their way into other parts of Christian Europe. These copies joined works that had been preserved directly by Christian monks from Greek and Roman originals, as well as copies Western Christian monks made of Byzantine works. The resulting conglomerate libraries are the basis of every modern library today.
Ibn al-Nadim's bibliography Fihrist demonstrates the devotion of medieval Muslim scholars to books and reliable sources; it contains a description of thousands of books circulating in the Islamic world circa 1000, including an entire section for books about the doctrines of other religions. Modern Islamic libraries for the most part do not hold these antique books; many were lost, destroyed by Mongols, or removed to European libraries and museums during the colonial period.
Yesterday, thirteen Catholic groups requested that Pope Francis formally rescind the 15th century papal bulls that provided the basis for the international law Doctrine of Discovery and the legalized colonization and subjugation of most of the world by Europeans.
The request by these groups stands in solidarity with indigenous peoples’ requests to every pope since 1984 to do the same. The 13 groups call upon Pope Francis to start a new era of justice with a public declaration that formally rescinds the Dum Diversis Bull of 1452, which ordered Europeans “to capture, vanquish and subdue the Saracens, pagans and other enemies of Christ and put them into perpetual slavery and to take all their possessions and their property,” and the Inter Caetera Bull of 1493, which divided the world for Spain and Portugal to “take all lands and possessions” and to colonize and convert indigenous peoples.
which ordered Europeans “to capture, vanquish and subdue the Saracens, pagans and other enemies of Christ and put them into perpetual slavery and to take all their possessions and their property,”

Islam has to be judged as just another religion where the fallen human being, like the fallen humans in Christianity and Judaism, have done evil acts despite the religion telling them not to do it..
A religion is just a theory on paper how the people interpret it is on them.
Now that we have proven the liars as liars who say “Muslims never denounce terrorism”
You blame Islam for the deeds of power hungry rulers, who like the Christian power hungry rulers like Columbus, abused people in the name of God.
Islam didn’t tell them to do that.
After the wars with the Meccans, who btw persecuted Muhammad 1400 years ago when he started to preach Islam, Muhammad forgave them ALL.
No where in the Quran does it tell Muslims to act to persecute other people
Not so in the Bible where it cleary tells the Jews they can rape and pillage since they are God’s chosen people.
And the Christians have followed that down the ages to the tee; remember slavery, colonialism that the third world is still affected by.
It’s Christians who murdered 10 million Africans in the Belgium Congo
Destroyed millions through slavery
Genocided the Native Americans
I could go on and on but people know the history of Christian Europe
Colonized practically ALL of the third world, all in the name of Christ in many instances.
So they were wrong as the so called Muslims who did the same thing to people were and are wrong.
I don’t blame their religion for that eventhough there are versus in the Old Testament that tell the Jews to destroy other people.
