My Response to Mr. Hayden's comments on "An Analysis of Anti-Islamic Polemics"

Recently, I came across a link to a response by Mr. David Hayden to an old article of mine - An Analysis of Anti-Islamic Polemics, written nearly a decade ago. His response can be seen by clicking here.

My response follows:

Mr. David Hayden's response to an old article of mine mentions John Fletcher's interpretation of what John of Segovia intended vis-a-vis 'peaceful' dialogue with Muslims. Such interpretation is rather a mellowed down version of what John really meant or did and is a wilful attempt to present John of Segovia in a kinder, gentler way. Like obsessed missionaries of later times, John was more interested in bringing non-Christian people to Christ one way or another rather than genuine dialogue to understand or appreciate other's view on such contentious subjects.
