    This video addresses the tendency to excuse Islam from criticism based on uninformed views of its tenets. It also gives several examples of the dichotomy between how Islam is portrayed by its supporters and apologists versus the reality of its application to actual Muslims.

    I watched this video several months ago. I think it makes some good points, but, I have a hard time believing the narratives that are given as examples / case-studies.

    What happens with Islam is TYPICAL, it happened to other religions, Archonic elites divide people for easier control.

    I was intrigued by this:
    • 38:26 But what’s abundantly clear in all this conflict
      38:29 is that the people who suffer most under Islam are Muslims.
      38:33 If we care about that suffering, we need to acknowledge the part Islam plays in it.
    Rather than fixate on the existing wording in those two sentences, I replaced "Islam" with "Christianity" and "Muslims" with "Christians" and am now reflecting on the applicability of both revised sentences.

    For comparative studies as one replaces Islam with Christianity and Muslims with Christians, similarly replace these with Buddhism and Buddhists, Hinduism and Hindus, Atheism and Atheists and so on and so forth, please.

    I'm ahead of you. I did already; I just didn't do it here in RF.

    But one didn't share the outcome. Welcome to do it, please?

    Thank you for sharing the video. I don't usually watch entire videos of this length on RF but I found the this one informative and well presented.
