Well, if you're going to go back that far you should be more balanced. Islam has a long history of spreading through military conquest. That's why Turkey and Albania are Muslim today. Heck, even Egypt was once a predominantly Christian country, a part of the Byzantine Empire, before it was conquered by Muslims in the 7th century. The Crusades were one long failure, while many of the Islamic conquests were permanent. I am of course not making a case for imposing American military hegemony on Islamic countries today, I am simply pointing out that political correctness gives a very unbalanced view of history.
