Ans.1. You asked for outside sources. I provided them. Pograms came later.(If you read the article you would have realized that) So your analogy is flawed because the comparison is not accurate.
2. Then lets modify my post to say there are scarse examples of suicide bombers PROCLAIMING their crime in the name of atheism. Same point.
03. As of the rest of the questions - you really need that to ask your brethern, not the atheists. Start with the ones who think Mosques are repositories for weaponry.
Instead of wasting our time with a judgement icon, why not reply to my post?(Though I am flattered that you responded at all, of course). Why are you afraid? I won't bite.
1. What I say is that Jews-Christian relations were “far from friendly and cordial” when Our prophet declared his mission.
In any way, Muslims treated Jews better than Christians, in all those centrureis, untill Jews “picked up the fight with Muslims” by this “Palestine belongs to Jews” war cry.
2. There being “far less numbers” of Atheist Suicide Bombers does not prove your case. Are you sure your Atheist Friends are facing the same problems and persecuted the same way as “some religious people”?
3. Mosques really are for Allah, they are life blood of Muslim society. There was a time when mosques were used as “place of Governance”… that was before Islam became a “religion” like other religions, earlier it was a “Way of life”.
I think we are gone above the stage of maintaining regular correspondence… You have HUGH, JOEL and others that are engaged in “Never ending discussions” with each other.
I do not see that you have agreed on any thing so far!!
