Islam and Its History For Beginners

Clare Lopez outlines some of the history of Islam and how it is still impacting today’s politics and conflicts—1400 years after the founding of Islam. In that time, Christianity has changed. Judaism has changed. Islam has not.

She starts out in the middle of a previous discussion about why faiths other than Islam are “under fire” in Moslem countries. She asks, then answers, what is the basis for the extreme persecution of Christians, Jews, Ba’hais, Copts and others who are unfortunate enough to be living in Moslem-majority, Sharia-based countries.
