You're wasting your time. Phos isn't remotely interested in learning anything about this subject. He's been playing the same track for the last eight years, and shows no sign of wishing to change it.

Just think of him as the lairy drunk who keeps putting Danny Boy on the jukebox all evening. Best thing to do is let him be. Nobody wants a bottle of brown ale in the jugular...
Is it time this thread was brought to a close, then? I've not been keeping up with it, as it drags its way on and on and on.

I wouldn't close it, because Phos will then whinge about people "closing down the conversation", which isn't actually happening except in his own head.

Leave it open and it will sink, unloved, to the bottom of the page before dying a lonely death in a flat full of unwashed dishes, pizza boxes and cats.

Thus, what do a few quotes demonstrate ?
Defence or attack, it was 1400 years ago. Should we think the same about italian since there were Romans 2000 years ago?

Pretty scared by the few messages I read here about Islam
No because modern day Italians are terrible soldiers

You mean interested in unlearning something. History and the Quran clearly spell out conquest as the method for taking over the world. As politicians proclaiming Islam as a religion of peace, Muslims take up the sword of Jihad, its no wonder we don't understand each other. Duplicity and willful ignorance.

If religion is the opium of the people, political memes are the general anaesthesia.

requeue Danny Boy

You flip flop more than a fish on a hook. You don't even know what you're arguing any more.

I'm going to bed. Goodnight.

I'm glad that you decided to do so...what about a few weeks, maybe a year break? And I'm in favour of Islam becoming a recognised church.

About " History and the Quran clearly spell out conquest as the method for taking over the world." Ahh, Putin is Muslim!

This somehow reminds me of a true story of an Irish friend who visited Tokyo some 20 years ago. If you were ever there at that time the whole town was furnished with unreadable Japanese signs.
My Irish friend had dinner in his hotel and then went out looking for action, but he could not read the signs
Eventually he heard music from a doorway, went in and it was a cellar bar. It was also a karoake bar and by some sign language they indicated he was supposed to sing the next track of some incomprehensible Japanese song.
He protested I am Irish so (astoundingly they understood) they played Danny boy.
So there he was in the middle of Tokyo in a Japanese cellar full of Japanese singing Danny boy.

You may well ask what this has to do with this thread topic; I was wondering the same

Now be good and don't ruin all my misconceptions and tell me the world is much clever than Danny Boy thinks?
