I am going to limit my participation in this thread to reporting from outside sources, Christian in this case, of the history of the Muslim conquests
according to ancient authors using ancient sources: from "Christian-Muslim Relations, a Bibliographical History vol 1 600-900AD" by D.R. Thomas, B.
Reggeme and Juan Pedro Monferrere Sala pages 211-215
Monophysite Christian of Egypt John Nikiou displeased his fellow Bishops and who were indeed vexed by his harshness. Deposed for murdering a Monk who
had raped a Nun at Wadi Habib he was relieved of duty.
He wrote about the Monophysite-Catholic controversy enflaming the country, the conquest of Egypt in 640-642 by Amr ibn al-As.
Impious Heraclitus of Byzantium through his Bishop Melkite Patriarch Cyrus persecutes the Coptic Church, but he condemns Egyptian Christians for
cooperating with the Muslims.
The Coptic perspective was the Arab invasion of Egypt was to free the Coptic Church from the Roman-Byzantine yoke.
To be fair this man hated Islam with a passion but he at least reports the feelings of his countrymen accurately.
King Khosro of Persia was a well known wicked man at the time he was deposed and the Syrians knew it. Zoroastrians are not wicked people and even
though three assassinated Omar, who was a peace maker, they were given protected status as "People of the Book."
The Jews of Muslim lands also supported Islam as a force of deliverance from Edom aka Byzantine Rome, who they obviously believed were wicked as did
the Christian Copts, and even the Persians.
This is what I mentioned earlier, the "Secrets of Simeon ben Yohai" calls Mohammed (saws) the "Rider on the camel" of Isaiah and as a Messianic agent
(of the rider on the ass), 8th century.
And of course John bar Penkaye, check out the link to his works at tertullian.org I provided earlier.
And regarding Islam in India everyone should Google what Ghandi wrote about Mohammed (saws) after reading his biography, in Ghandi's "Young India."
He said basically he was convinced that the myths of conquest by the sword were false and he had the utmost respect for Mohammed (saws) and his life.
Wished he had more to read about the Prophet (saws).
The Ghandi who said, " I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians."
They are a well known nuisance in India and are ferociously dishonest when it comes to evangelism in India, so they say, in India where little success
is made. Islam in India and other places considers Hindus "People of the Book" even though by most standards they are polytheistic it is also
understood that our angels are their Daevas and their Brahma is our God Most High/Allah T'Allah, at least by the Sunni and Sufi sects they come in
contact with and most open minded people in general.
And noticed that Brahma sounds a lot like Abraham as Sarasvati does Sarah, Shiva and Sheba(Sheva in Hebrew, Sava/Saba it's the saws word, Vav is
sometimes transliterated as a b like in Ya'akov to Jacob), the word Saba means "Host" or "Elder" in Hebrew and is connected with Saturn, Sabbatai
being the actual word for Saturn the planet, I believe is also connected to Brahma or Shiva, they are actually in a Trinity I believe with Kali
although don't quote me on that part, the hexagram is a Hindu symbol called a Mandala, the Aramaic/Mandaic word for Gnostic is also Mandaean, called
Sabaeans in the Qur'an, and Manda is their word for Gnosis in their dialect of Aramaic still used in liturgy today in the Mandaean religion.
Sabaeans are the most mysterious and non specific "People of the Book" as Harranians who were Hermetic philosophers claimed to be Sabaeans and Hermes
equated with Idris/Enoch, as well as Seth, it being considered a title, and they and Byzantium are the sources of Hermetic literature today, more so
they in terms of MSS. at least, and Muslims who preserved them too, at one time it was very popular and then became popular in Europe later, as well
as Aristotle and the Greek philosophers like Plato, Proclus, Porphyry, were all rejected by Catholicism until the Golden Age of Islam rescued it
from eternal darkness.
Europe tried to rewrite history, deliberately to slander Islam and hide their scientific debt owed to Muslims in Spain who they massacred or
forcefully converted to steal the beautiful nation they built with Jews and Christians while living in peace.
And let's never forget those who perished at the hands of the Inquisition for the crime of...everything from sorcery, heresy to just being a
theoretical scientist, the book burnings of the Talmud and anything else they didn't approve of.
And the debt owed to Muslims in ressurecting Greek philosophy and developing algebra and algorithms from Indian mathematics, ironically used today to
guide missles up the asses of camels from half way across the globe today with precision.
One can understand why people need to slander 1.5 billion people based on sterotypes, propaganda and plain lies.
Europe has a lot to hide as does its colony America, controlled by London and Israel via London, who has a lot to hide as well.
Like how Muslims protected Jews for 1400 years from Christian persecution, it was the Ottoman Empire who made sure Spanish refugees had a place to go
if lucky enough to escape, aided their escape even.
It's easy to go on YouTube and listen to 25 different Rabbis tell it and more believeable than hearing it from me.
I suggest you do, everyone.
