“Hence in the study of Islam in the West, the dominant convention is that a critical approach is reserved for the Christian past but forbidden for the Muslim pass…The net result is a romantic picture of the history of Islam avoiding and sometimes denying such issues as the jihadists slaughter and massive enslavement of traditional African believers”
