After Beslan, a lot of people changed the religion on their identity papers, i don't know if that means they really converted. Might be a survival tactic.

islam reached its peak now its declining and the mullahs are worried desperately trying to promote a failing product by death threats on on hand and sweet talk incentives for ignorant westerners to convert

Islam grows by muslims having big families especially in the middle east when the guys have up to 4 wives. Mnay of those kids would leave Islam but the penalty for that is death in Muslim countries. http://www.al-islam.org/short/apostasy/ (1) "Murtad Fitri" means a person who is born of a Muslim parent and then he rejects Islam. "Fitrah" means creation. The term "murtad fitri" implies that the person has apostated from the faith in which he was born.

(2) "Murtad Milli" means a person who converted to Islam and then later on he rejects Islam. Milli is from millat which means religion. The term "murtad milli" implies that the person has apostated from his religion and the Muslim community.

In the first case, the apostasy is like the treason against God; whereas in the second case, the apostasy is like the treason against the Muslim community. Probably, that is why the Sh`iah jurisprudence deals with these two kinds of murtads differently:

· A former kãfir who became a Muslim and then apostates (murtad milli), he is given a second chance: if he repents, then he is not to be killed; but if he does not repent, then he is to be killed.

· But one who is born as a Muslim and then apostates (murtad fitri), he is to be killed even if he repents. It is important to understand that in case a murtad fitri repents, Allãh may accept his repentance and he may be forgiven in the hereafter, but he still has to go through the punishment prescribed for his treason in this world.[7]

Religions were sidelined during the Soviet era and Muslims generally did not have the sort of religio-political power given to Imams nowadays.

There is active proselytising in former Soviet states that are Muslim; with militant Islam gaining ground in countries like Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and even to China's Xinkiang Ughir parts.

Hopefully militant Islam will not gain further inroads into these lands. Chechnya, Dagestan are being rapidly Islamised to extreme Wahabism. Moscow has to placate these people to keep them in line but hopefully the rest can be turend to good Christians.

2 million ethnic Muslims converted to Christianity in Russia.
In Africa, 6 million muslims convert to Christianity every year. English Translation here.
"In every hour, 667 Muslims convert to Christianity. Everyday, 16,000 Muslims convert to Christianity. Ever year, 6 million Muslims convert to Christianity. These numbers are very large indeed".
200,000 UK Muslims Left Islam.
Mullahs and Imams leave Islam and enter Christianity.
50,000 Muslim Teenagers Murtads in Malaysia .
Thousands of Kashmiri Muslims leave Islam !
Thousands of Bangladeshi, North African, Kashmiri, Indian Muslims, Central Asian Muslims leave Islam.
10,000 french muslims converted to Christianity.
Some 35,000 Turks converted from Islam to Christianity last year.

In West, Islam is growing mainly by immigration, and the high birth rate of muslims. Yes, some gullible people are converting to Islam out of great ignorance. But, that is very very small fraction, almost neglible. Good people who think freely can not maintain peace of heart and mind in Islam. They leave Islam immediately. That's why in US, more than 75% of new converts leave Islam in just a few years.

Because even though their trying to infiltrate from within, the truth is slowly getting out there. More and more Non-muslims are learning what islam teaches. Its slowly happing but the wheels are in motion.

I'm noticing the division happening with muslism here in Canada as well. The ones that come here are steadfast in their beliefs, but their children the ones that are born here, are wanting to be ordinary people.

Those steadfast ones will die with their belief at any cost,including that of their child if it has strayed from their flock

Any Muslim who knows their religion will accept this as fact. Allah says if you do not practice your religion properly then he will replace you with a better people. Look at the people who become Muslim. They practice better than those born Muslims. Look at this that leave islam. They are not practicing anyway and want an easier life. That is the bottom line. The Muslims where small in number but string in faith when islam was introduced to them. They where undefeatable. Now we are large in numbers but small in faith. That us why Allah has to replace us.

Example of steadfast ones are Paletinians, cuz they proud if their son become suicide bomber. That's why Israel says, "Peace will be achieve, if Paletinians love their children like normal parent".
