A muslim is obliged by faith to serve in the army.
What in the hell does FAITH have to do with being a SOLDIER?
No, thank you.
Another reason not to want Islam as the "one global religion." The armed forces of the US are volunteer - people are PAID to be IN THEM - and get benefits from it (or used to), plus Veterans Affairs takes care of them for life - another branch of the military/government.
I object to the way they use youth to kill others, and how they damage the thinking and ability to live a "normal" life.
I've seen videos of the preschoolers (little kids) dressed in fatigues and learning how to carry guns in Palestine and shouting "Death to Israel!". Sickening.

So you prefer that people get paid to kill other people ? What is the f differene if they gt paid or not ? Its still a crime
In this period they were invaded by Mongolian forces, That were so impressed by Islamic teachings and the culture they actually converted to Islam.
When they left, they took Islam back with them into Asia. I don't think you can really blame Islam.
I think the people that lived in India and Pakistan and Iran and so on, got introduced by Mongol Islamic people, that taught a peaceful way of life. Cause that was what Islam was like during these 400 years.
The reasons for these event have never been, religious, but financial control by origin. Religion has been used as a tool, to reach this goal.
These comments are not meant to be personal to anyone on this forum. Rather, they are an expression of a different view point based on logic rather than reliance on ancient and ambiguous texts that other than identifying some historical figures, have never been a reliable predictor of world events as they purport to be or as true believe purport them to be.
Or at least not a God that demands obedience of a race on a small planet that is a pinpoint in a massive universe.
Let me put it this way to you, in Christianity, Romans 3:25: "unto eternal life through Jesus Christ. is the basic tenant of Christianity. It is logical to all Christians that believing in Jesus is the path to eternal life and all others are damned to burn in hell.
