Greetings Mr. 3.

What makes Islam a racist religion if all men are born Muslims?

given the racial diversity of present-day Muslims, and the explicit mission of Proselytization regardless of ethnicity, it is hard to call Islam a racist religion.

Judaism is a much more racist, if that is how you want to classify your religions.

The guy was saying all men are Muslims. Was that a typo? Also Salafi Islam says they hate the Children of Israel or in other words the Jews for the sake of Allah, wouldn’t that be racist/anti-semitic?

Put roughly, folks are born as Muslims in God’s eyes and then raised by false religions to become infidels. Should they later submit to Islam, they resume their natural state of muslim-ness with all the rights and privileges allowed to the faithful.

I suggest learning more about Islam before having too strong an opinion about it.

I didn’t know you were Muslim, sorry about that.

What do you mean?

Saying attributed to Mohammad: “Every child has in him the germ of Islam, then his parents make him Jew, Christian, or Zoroastrian.” But no further assertion that these folk are infidels.

I don’t know what Harris believes. That said, I think many people associate Islam with Arabic people and so that could lead to some confused claims that being critical of Islam is somehow racist.

But of course we know that there are hundreds of millions of Muslims that live no where near “Arabia” and who do not have an Arabic genealogy. Therefore being critical of Islam is not - per se - racist.

Even with them saying they dislike the Israelites it’s not racist?

Well now you’re bringing a new claim into the discussion.
