Saudi YouTube hate comments are an opportunity for learning

I received 3 hostile comments on my video "What's In a Letter?" on YouTube today. In the video I discuss a 7th century letter from Islamic leader Caliph Umar to the last King of Persia advising him to submit to Islam or be destroyed. I compared this to a 2006 letter from Iran's Ahmadinejad to President Bush which many in the mainstream media interpreted as a peace gesture, but which actually "invited" Bush to convert to Islam as a prelude to war. This custom is derived from Muhammad's own words:

When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these, you also accept it and withold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them. [...]

If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah's help and fight them.


In the video I read directly from the letter that the King of Persia wrote in response to Caliph Umar, denouncing Islam and extolling the glories of ancient Persia. Here's what a Saudi "gentleman" going by the YouTube username sunniIMAM had to say about it:

fUCK YOU KUFFAR!!! THIS LETTER IS FROM TIME OF IGNORANCE!!! THEY KNEW NOTHING ABOUT ISLAM!!! SUCH FILTHY WRITING AGAINST ISLAM WAS BURNED ALL OF IT SO YOU HAVE ONLY SOME FRAUD MADE BY JEWS!!! IS FUCKING FRAUD YOU DOG OF FILTH FROM HELLFIRE!!!!

"KUFFAR" = infidel, non-muslim

The "TIME OF IGNORANCE" is the time in a nations history before they accepted Islam. In most cases the previous history of the nation has been erased or has been bent to serve the interests of Islam. An example is the retroactive designation of Jesus as a "Palestinian" and Abraham as an "Iraqi," and the claim that all Old and New Testament prophets were Muslims.

"THEY KNEW NOTHING ABOUT ISLAM": They knew enough to know that they didn't want to submit to it, as is abundantly clear from the text of the letter.

"SUCH FILTHY WRITING AGAINST ISLAM WAS BURNED ALL OF IT SO YOU HAVE ONLY SOME FRAUD MADE BY JEWS!!!": Here he shows how proud he is that Islam censored all knowledge that came before it, and he throws in the requisite Jew-hatred conspiracy nonsense for good measure.

"IS FUCKING FRAUD YOU DOG OF FILTH FROM HELLFIRE!!!!": At least that insult is semi-creative, just like the graphic insult he posted in two consecutive posts below it.

I suspect the vituperous and irrational response is on account of your having found a text that Muslims, particularly in Iran, would very much like to keep concealed. Islam almost exclusively seeks to obliterate any culture it conquers, though the Pyramids were too much for them.

The existence of Persian Empires and the response of Yazdgerd to Umar's threat must cause some concern in Teheran, particularly in the light of its unusually (for a Muslim country) literate population, and their heavy usage of the Internet.
