Here is one article about it:

I find it rather saddening that even though we hold commemorative events for terrible events that were orchestrated in the past, we do not pay heed and rigidly insist on engaging in much of the same.

Quite true

the a large part of the Muslim world needs to be tackled much more about the perpetual genocide they seem to revel in.

Whilst I agree largely with your musings, I find it rather odd that you used "perpetual genocide" for such a thing cannot possibly exist.

since it's inception Islam has been committing genocide

This is still happening today

so 'perpetual genocide' is rather apt given I don't see the slaughter stopping anytime soon.

Perpetual genocide is largely a contradiction in terms.

If one engages in genocide against a particular group of people, then those people will largely cease to exist and hence, one cannot possibly be engaged in such a practice "perpetually".

Just to make you feel better I agree with you.

There you go you can say you won this one. Do you now want a pat on the head?

Winning is not everything.

We won the war but the Germans and Japanese now largely dominate our car industry (I watched that on James May show last week but no doubt you can still catch it on iPlayer).

If one engages in genocide against a particular group, it doesn't follow that those people will disappear

e.g. imagine 100 reds stabbing their way through blue-land, they will never be able to kill everyone in blue-land, since blue people would be born faster than they could reasonably kill

And if those 100 reds have descendants that exactly replace their numbers (so there are always 100 reds), and none are ever caught by the blues, then of course they would continue their campaign indefinitely.
