THE INVENTION OF ISLAM

WHY MUST DEFEAT ISLAM

By Ahmed Simon The list of Muslim destruction, and massacres of innocent men, women and children worldwide, is getting longer and longer, not only in Muslim countries but also in non-Muslim countries. This is common knowledge today. The latest brutality (one of many already on American soil), of the slaughter of the Armanious family of [...]

A DIALOGUE BETWEEN A CHRISTIAN AND A MUSLIM about the Quran
