comment How did Islam and Hinduism thrive together in Medieval India?
Of course Islamic invasion was not done only to spread the religion. It was done to get more power and land, as almost all invasions are. I do realize religion is a touchy issue, and that it probably seems very strange for somebody to not hate Islam, but you have to remember that I'm neither Muslim, nor a Hindu and is therefore neutral in that conflict and hence hate neither religion.

1. Please remove the reference to me in the answer, this is not a discussion forum. 2. Please make a difference about victims of conquest and victims of religious persecution, those are not the same thing. 3. You can disagree as much as you like if you don't have sources to support you. You are not a world leading scholar, and neither am I. Our opinions are not relevant.

I realize there is a lot of emotions and prejudice in this topic, but that's not constructive. Either you make your own answer WITH RELIABLE SOURCES or you don't. Making unsourced claims is pointless.

You are mistaking the Muslim conquest of Persia with conversion into Islam. Two different events, two very different processes. You also make a lot of vague claims, but provide no sources.

This is not a discussion forum. If you wish to reply to my answer, do that with a comment. If you wish to answer the question, don't refer to my answer. Also you present no evidence for what you claim.

Forced conversion means violence.

Mark has a good point. See for example Irelands independence.

On a related note, Sweden was attacked by Denmark and Russia, and won the war against Denmark by giving Finland to Russia, so that they would step down, leaving Sweden only to worry about the Danish army, which it promptly defeated. ;-) Obviously the real winner is Russia. And in your case, the real winner is France. But yeah, sure, I guess that's as close as it gets.

comment What was the fate of most SS members after World War II?
@mart I'm sorry, the answer doesn't say any of the things you claim is wrong with the answer. I don't claim SS are conscripts, I don't claim it's a branch of the army, I do EXPLICITLY claim that the SS are Nazis.

comment Why is Kubb - a skittles game - associated with the Viking Age?
@user293129 That is entirely incorrect. "Kub" comes from Latin and doesn't show up with the "Kub" spelling and Swedish declensions until the 18th century. "Kubb" comes from old Norse and means "Short, wide, fat", and is related to "Kobbe" and "Knubbig".
