Thank you for your fine article on Islamic tolerance. It was very enlightening. In the West, we are taught that the time of Islamic control of Spain was a period of intolerance, and that the Moors forced many Spaniards to convert to Islam against their will. I hope you could in the future write about the Islamic view of this period.
