What is ignorante in this video it never mentioned the bloodshed of Muslim everywhere they attacked. Beheading near 1000 people by Ali in one day raping in the name of their God when they attacked Iran. Oh, you are not telling everything sorry this video is made to make a good fave out of a belief

Only one savoir. Yahushua. Ask for guidance and discernment from Yahuah. The one and only true creator. Allah is perfect for the Catholic church. They all believe in Mary and they think Yahushua is a profit! One religion, one government. All staged under Lucifer. The Catholic church and her ecumenical movement to bring all church under one poop!

you sir are a completely idiot, First of all the huris are present in the Quran.  Secondly, it is a total shame to say that Muslims have “saved” the Greek culture. Greek culture was well in the Byzantine Empire for hundreds of years until Muslims came to set fire to the Alexandria library.  in fact, all of the classical texts that we have today in Greek are Byzantine transcripts. that means we do not have any original texts on the iliad or Odyssea, Aristotel Arhimede, etc. all that Muslims did is to destroy the Byzantine Empire and bring dark over the Europe whit nearly 500 battles that they led across the Mediterranean coast and from Spain to France where they were defeated by Charles the Hammer

Islam is problematic and needs to be eliminated. That is baked into the religion itself and will never change. Islam is a religion of law (like Judaism) and as such can not be civilized like Christianity was. Secondly the barbaric nature of Islam always threatens the safety of everyone else (unlike Judaism) because Islam encourages conversion, Judaism does not.

A religion of laws (not faith) that actively promotes conversion is backwards, barbaric, and needs to be eliminated; full stop.

Wow, I’m impressed! Not one thing you said was incorrect, and I’m shocked Lol. You even hit them with the verse “There’s no compulsion in religion” which debunks the theory of Islam being spread by the sword. I believe you may be the first non Muslim in social media history that actually did their research Lol… I thank you for that. May Allah guide you to Monotheism… Ameen.❤️
