I am in contact with a former Muslim American. I have also been in contact with another former Muslim from Turkey and present Muslims. Like you I once believed that was the goal of all Muslims--to take over countries by the sword. I no longer believe this. I also believe that when it started the Jews and Christians threatened the little religion by war. I am not totally convinced any longer that Islam was always out to convert everyone by the sword. Often, definitely, but not always.

After much pondering, Stacy Smith favored us with:
Do any of you believe that the Islamist goal is not just to get Israel out of the west bank but also to take over the entire world?
I do. The goal of Islam, like the goal of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is to convert the whole world to their faith. And at one point in their history they believed in missionary work by the sword. I don't know how they believe today. --JWR
