Paris is worth a conversion

Posted on: June 1, 2010

The French Protestant Prince of Navarre was offered to become King of France on condition of converting to Catholicism.  Future French King Henry 4 had said: “Paris is worth a conversion”.  He is credited of finalizing a peace treaty between the Catholics and the minority Protestants (called Hugueno).  This treaty put an end to a bloody civil war;  it lasted for over 30 years until Richelieu subjugated the Huguenos in La Rochelle as they allied with England to safeguard self-autonomy as a minority Christian sect.

A thousand year earlier, the Prophet Mohammad was pressured to a series of compromises among the Arabic tribes related to customs and traditions which ended with a consensus of common denomenators in belief system that unified all the tribes in the Peninsula.  This consensus lasted about 30 years; it was time enough to defeating both the Byzantium and Persia Empires and then conquering Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Egypt.
