There is little that Republicans and Democrats in
the United States agree on but when it comes to Islam both former president
George Bush and president Barack Obama have
said that Islam is a "great religion" and a religion of peace. President Bush said this after Muslim hijackers
murdered 3000 people on 9/11. Obama said this in a
speech he gave
at St. Xavier's college in
Muslim Pakistani terrorists with the help of the Pakistani intelligence services
injured over 300 people and murdered 164 people more, some of whom they tortured
in a rampage in Mumbai in November 2008 including two very kind and giving people I had the
privilege of meeting when I was in India,
Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and his wife
Rivka. Obama even removed all reference to Islam from
security training manuals and is
fast tracking the immigration of Muslims into the United States. If Islam is a "religion of peace" why are Muslims
in more wars and terrorism than any other religious group? Are they fighting
wars of liberation against oppressive occupiers in the
Middle East, the
Kenya, Chechnya ,Western
Indonesia and elsewhere or are they continuing Muhammad's war of conquest against
the infidel? Ironically it is fear that Muslims will unite in war that
leads to Western protestations that Islam is a religion of peace. Western
leaders want to show that they side with Islam by saying nice things about Islam
because they fear Islam. Defenders of Islam argue that Islam is a tolerant religion
and point to tolerant statements in the Koran such as "there is no compulsion in
religion". Defenders of Islam
tell us that
the majority of Muslims are peaceful people who are victims of Islamophobia and
that terrorism done in the name of Islam is the work of a few extremists who
misunderstand Islam. If Islam was hijacked by a few confused extremists why is
there so much more terrorism
against non-believers carried out by Muslims than members of any other religion?
If the majority of Muslims are peaceful people why
did a poll conducted in Saudi Arabia in January 2002 revealed that 95
percent of educated Saudis between the ages of 25 and 41
support Osama bin Laden? Why on Sept 11, 2012 were there rallies seething with hatred
all over the Muslim world with people chanting "Obama, Obama we are all Osama"
as shown in the video below?
If the Muslim world is so moderate why, after we helped liberate the Libyans
from Khadafy did a mob of Libyans attack the American embassy and kill the
Why do Muslims hold
pro-Hezbollah rallies in Michigan and attack
there? Why is there so much
crime against non-Muslims in areas in the
United States and in
Europe in areas where there are large populations
of Muslims? Why are so many
killings against women carried out by Muslims?
The best way
to understand what a religion is, is to observe the behavior of its followers. The best way
to understand why a religion is the way it is, is to understand the motives of
the people who founded the religion. If we understand who Muhammad was we
The initial problem we face with that is that there is no mention of Muhammad in
historical documents from the time that Islamic holy books say he lived.
We can only create a picture of Muhammad from Islamic documents and the behavior
of those in modern times who practice Islam.
According to Islamic sources Muhammad
grew up in Mecca. The Quraysh tribe of which he was a member believed in the
God, Al-illah (which translated means the God), his wife the sun goddess and their three
daughters, al-Lat, al-Uzza
and Manat as well as many other deities.
This is a picture of a statue of al Lat that was
destroyed by the Islamic State (ISIS or Daesh) after they conquered
Palmyra in May 2015
crescent moon sits on
top of mosques and minarets. A crescent is found on some of the flags of Islamic
nations. Muslims fast during the month which begins and ends with the appearance
of the crescent moon in the sky. The Ka'ba the holy place for the
moon god worshippers was in Mecca and was the house of Al-illah.
When Muhammad was
25 years old he married a wealthy 40 year old woman and started to preach to his
fellow tribesmen that there was only one God, Allah and that he was Allah's
For those who believe in one
God, the fact that Muhammad preached that there is only one God may seem to give
him an aura of respectability. It's important to note that if you were a charlatan who wanted power there were
advantages to preaching that there was one God as opposed to many. You
were much more important if you were the messenger of the one all powerful God
then if you were the messenger of one of many Gods.
In order to
win the members of his tribe over Muhammad conceded that the daughters of the
moon God, al-Lat, al-Uzza and Manat were divine beings but that
they were subordinate to Allah. Despite this concession he failed to win
over most of the Meccans who made great fun of the pretensions of this once
ragged lad who owed his fortune to a decrepit widow and who threatened
non-believers with painful torment in hell. As a result he withdrew that
concession and Muslims today believe that the only reason he made those
concessions was that he was tempted by Satan. Salman Rushdie wrote a novel
titled The Satanic Verses based on the verses allowing worship of al-Lat,
al-Uzza, and Manat and was accused of blasphemy and mocking Islam.
Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini issued a
fatwa commanding Muslims to kill Mr.
Rushdie and his publishers. As we shall see, Khomeini was following in the
footsteps of Muhammad's murderous rage toward those who mocked him.
In addition to making concessions to the Quraysh, Muhammad also made concessions
to the Jews who
villages in the Hejaz region which is south of Israel and is now part of Saudi
to Syed Maududi:
Jews of the Hejaz claimed that they had come to settle in Arabia during the
last stage of the life of the Prophet Moses (peace be upon him). They said
that the Prophet Moses had dispatched an army to expel the Amalekites from
the land of Yathrib.
If this is true Jews lived in Hejaz since 1200 B.C. about 1800 years before
Muhammad was born. Otherwise the first Jewish presence in the Hejaz
may have been in 587 BC. when Nebuchadnezzer, the king of Babylon, destroyed Jerusalem
and Jews fled to the Hejaz. More Jews fled to the Hejaz in 70 AD when
the occupying Romans were
massacring them in Israel.
Muhammad ordered his followers to turn in the direction of Jerusalem during prayer and
to adopt the Jewish day of Atonement as a Muslim holy day. He told the Jews that
Allah was the same God as their God.
He had a letter sent to the Jews of
Khaybar which stated:
I adjure you by God, and by
what He has sent down to you, by the manna and quails He gave as food to
your tribes before you, and by His drying up the sea for your fathers and
when He delivered them from Pharaoh and his works, that you tell me: Do you
find in what He has sent down to you that you should believe in Muhammad?
Robert Spencer in his book The Truth About Muhammad wrote:
Some of the Jews answered
Muhammad's challenge the only way they could. One explained that
Muhammad "has not brought us anything we recognize and he is not the one we
spoke of to you" that is, he is not the Messiah of whom the Jews had spoken
to the Arabs before Muhammad began his prophetic career... Muhammad in
response received a revelation: "And when there cometh unto them a scripture
from Allah, confirming that in their possession- though before that
they were asking for a signal triumph over those who disbelieved- and when
there cometh unto them that which they know (to be the truth) they
disbelieve therein. The curse of Allah is on disbelievers" (Quran
Muhammad's response to the Jewish rejection of his claims of being a holy
prophet was to curse them. Once Muhammad realized that he could not convert the Jews he
received a revelation from Allah instructing Muslims to face Mecca instead of
Jerusalem for prayers. He had to explain to his followers why Allah told
them to face Jerusalem originally. Certainly Allah doesn't change his
mind. So Muhammad told them that facing Jerusalem was only a test.
In order to explain why the Jews had no prediction in their scriptures for his
coming Muhammad argued that the Jews had deliberately distorted their faith by
removing all reference from the scriptures to his coming.
To some extent
Jews do distort Judaism by not following the more draconian commands in the
Bible such as the command to
stone adulterers. When a
Jewish couple was accused of adultery Mohammad used that as an opportunity to
prove the Jews had distorted their religion. He asked a Jew how they
punished adulterers who answered "We announce their crime and lash them."
Mohammad exclaimed "Woe to you Jews! What has induced you to abandon the
judgment of God?" and ordered the couple stoned to death. A Muslim
"I saw the man leaning over
the woman to shelter her from the stones." (Bukhari vol. 4, book 61, no.
Stoning to death of couples accused of
adultery happens today in Islamic countries such as Iran and
An interesting question is why was
Muhammad so against adultery? After all he had many wives and told his
followers it was lawful for them to enslave the women of the people they
having many wives and sex slaves the same as adultery? Perhaps he was
against his wives cheating on him. Islamic teaching is very
and abusive to women.
Muhammad expressed his attitude toward woman when he said:
"I was shown the Hell-fire
and that the majority of its dwellers are women. "
Koran Vol. 1:28, 301; Vol. 2:161; Vol. 7:124
Muhammad told women:
"I have not seen any one moredeficient in
intelligence and religion than you." Koran Vol. 2:541
and Muhammad quoted Allah as saying:
have not left any affliction more harmful to men than women Koran 7:33
Demonizing women was a way to justify forcing them to serve
Muhammad and his followers sexually especially infidel women. Muhammad would
get the prettiest women captured during Jihad and his followers would get what
was left over and the men would be killed. We similar scenarios in modern times with DAESH otherwise
known as the Islamic State.
The following is a documentary about Yazidi
women fleeing Daesh.
ISIS separated the men from the women and marched the men away —
including Birvan’s father, brothers, and uncles. The women and children were
taken to different buildings and kept under lock and key.
ISIS fighters said they were merely moving the men to a different
location. However, soon after they disappeared, Birvan heard innumerable
gunshots: “The sound of those shots will never leave me.” She later came
across her father’s corpse; she never saw her brothers or uncles again ...
When her turn came and a man said “come,” “I refused and resisted, and
he beat me savagely.” He purchased her, forced her to his home, which had
formerly belonged to Yazidis, where, to live, she gratified him.
When asked about him, she said, “He was truly foul, truly, I mean, if
you saw him, there’s no difference between him and a beast. Actually animals
have more mercy in their hearts than these [ISIS].”
When Ja’far Abdul asked for more details of her everyday experiences,
Birvan visibly appeared uncomfortable. She kept pausing, simply repeating
the word “rape.” At one point she said “there were 48 ISIS members in that
house, and we were two girls — two Yazidi girls,” as if to say “use your
She told how they had once taken her friend to an adjacent room: “You
could not begin to comprehend what was happening in there!” She heard her
friend screaming out her name and saying “Please help me, save me!”
Muhammad's hostility to women has led to outrageous treatment of women by Muslim men
throughout the Islamic world. In one example given
by the New York Times (May 17, 2002)
judge in Pakistan sentenced a young woman to death for "adultery" by
stoning because she had been raped by her husband's brother. The judge
defended his action by saying that he had merely followed the Kuran based law
that mandated this punishment. The fact the woman, Zafran Bibi, was raped
was of no consequence. The woman had accused her brother in law of raping
her and this was a confession to her crime of "having intercourse outside
of marriage." The Times noted that this case fit "a familiar

Rape requires four adult male Muslim witnesses for
proof. Women’s testimony is not accepted – Pakistan’s Hudood ordinance 7 of
1979 amended by 8B of 1980. Literally thousands of raped women and girls in
many countries have been punished for Zena (physical relations outside
marriage) by Sharia courts for want of witness. Ayesha Duhulowa, a gang
raped 13 year old girl, was stoned to death by orders of a Sharia court.
A victim of Islamic grooming in the U.K. told Jamie Glazov in the video below
how the rapists would roll out prayer rugs and pray to Muhammad.
The New York Times published
this on August 13, 2015.
QADIYA, Iraq — In the moments before he raped the
12-year-old girl, the Islamic State fighter took the time to explain that
what he was about to do was not a sin. Because the preteen girl practiced a
religion other than Islam, the Quran not only gave him the right to rape her
— it condoned and encouraged it, he insisted.
He bound her hands and gagged her. Then he knelt beside the bed and
prostrated himself in prayer before getting on top of her.
When it was over, he knelt to pray again, bookending the rape with acts of

“He destroyed her body. She was badly infected. The fighter kept coming
and asking me, ‘Why does she smell so bad?’ And I said, she has an infection
on the inside, you need to take care of her,” the woman said.
Unmoved, he ignored the girl’s agony, continuing the ritual of praying
before and after raping the child.

such Islamic ruthless lack of compassion for women? Providing sex with
infidel women was a way Muhammad could provide an incentive for his followers to
fight Jihad for him.
The Qur’an says: “O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto
whom thou hast paid their dowries, and those whom thy right hand possesseth of
those whom Allah hath given thee as spoils of war” (33:50).
In order to make Islam attractive to his followers Muhammad said they could marry four Muslim
women at a time in addition to having infidel sex slaves, but he didn't want
these limits to apply to himself so he had a
O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou hast
paid their dowries, and those whom thy right hand possesseth of those whom Allah
hath given thee as spoils of war, and a believing woman if she give herself unto
the Prophet and the Prophet desire to ask her in marriage - a privilege for thee
only, not for the rest of believers. (Koran 33:50)
A year after
Muhammad told the Quraysh that they could worship their Gods Allat, Manat and
al-Uzza Muhammad reported that he was carried to paradise on a steed named Buraq
where he met the other prophets. Over the sixth heaven, he meets Moses who
wept because there would be more Muslims in heaven than Jews. A painting
of Muhammad's journey is shown below.
Muhammad's very very young wife, Aisha pointed out that the prophets body had
not gone anywhere the night that he said he had his miraculous trip to heaven
but said that his spirit must have traveled there (Ibn Ishaq, Sirat
Rasulullah, p. 183). Miraculous tales such as these served to convince
Muhammad's followers that he had a special relationship with God and that what
he said was God's word and that they should obey him.
threats of eternal torment for those who disbelieved in him and promises of rewards to
those who did, to persuade gullible people to believe he was a holy prophet. He
Garments of fire have been prepared for the unbelievers. Scalding water shall be
poured upon their heads, melting their skins and that which is in their bellies.
Muslim imams still threaten in
order to persuade people. In 1993, the supreme religious authority of
Saudi Arabia, Sheik Abdel-Aziz ibn Baaz, issued a edict, or
declaring that the world is flat and that anyone of the round persuasion does
not believe in God and should be punished.'' He also said that the sun
moves around the earth. If someone does not believe in God they are doomed
to eternal torment according to Muhammad and should be subjugated or killed so one can see how Baaz's Fatwa would
scare many Muslims into believing it or pretending to believe it. Sheik
Abdel-Aziz ibn Baaz may appear funny to us but his conclusion is
inescapable if one believes the Koran.
In Muhammad's time
there were people who were too smart to be taken in by his threats. Some
Quraysh skeptics asked Muhammad to prove he was a prophet of God by turning the
mountains around Mecca into gold for them or to clear them away altogether so
their farming would be easier. One of the Quraysh who
used to mock Muhammad's threats of painful torment was Amr ibn Hisham also
called Abu -l Hakam by his tribesmen which means father of wisdom.
He mocked Muhammad by saying: "O Allah! If this (Quran) is indeed the Truth from
You, then rain down on us a shower of stones from the sky or bring on us a
painful torment." Muslims called him Abu Jahl which means father of folly.
Amr and his companions laughed as one of them, Uqba bin Abu Mu’ayt dumped the
abdominal contents of a camel on a prostrate Muhammad when Muhammad was
front of the Kaaba.
who mocked Muhammad was al-Nadr who, after Muhammad told stories of divine
retribution that had befallen impious nations would tell his listeners the
stories of the Persian heroes Rustam and Isfendiar and then ask the
audience "Are the stories of Muhammad more beautiful than mine? He is
spouting ancient legends that he has gathered from the mouths of men more
learned than he."
In order to keep the skeptics from casting doubt
in the minds of the believers Muhammad had to keep believers from communicating
with their non-believing friends and to convince his followers that
non-believers were evil. (These
are techniques commonly used by modern day cults). Muhammad commanded them:
Stay away from non-Muslims. They are all
liars. [Koran 9:107]
Ignore disbelievers and their poisonous
talk. [Koran 33:48]
O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for friends.
[Koran, al-Ma'idah 5:51.11]
He passed rules that stated that infidels had inferior status and should be
humiliated and taught that infidels are unclean.
“O you who have believed, indeed the
polytheists are unclean…” — Qur’an 9:28
One result of this teaching was the
beating up of Masih a Christian ice cream man in Pakistan who was
accused of selling unclean merchandise to Muslim children since he as a
Christian was contaminating itjust by touching it. Here is a picture of Masih and his ice
cream bicycle before it was damaged.
Back to Muhammad. As time went on
Muhammad won over enough followers so that he was no longer funny to the Meccans.
He became a dangerous unbeliever who was convincing members of the tribe not to
believe in their faith and who was turning them against the tribe. He
convinced his followers that:
you shall always
discover treachery in them
And Koran (4:76)
fight for the devil. So fight the minions of the devil.
And Koran (7:177)
deny Muhammad's revelation are evil.
And Koran (8:55)
beasts in Allah's sight are the disbelievers.
And Koran(8:59 8:60)
They are your
enemy and the enemy of Allah.
Mecca became dangerous for Muhammad so he and his followers fled to Yathrib which is now known as Medina. From
their he launched raids to loot Quraysh caravans. His first 3 attempts which he
led in 623 were unsuccessful. Muhammad's first raid was unsuccessful
because he expected to find the Quraysh in a site known as Al-Abwa but didn't.
It is surprising that a holy prophet of God did not know whether or not the
Quraysh would be at a certain location, one would expect that Allah would have
told him. Muhammad was asked whether it was permissible to attack
unbelievers if doing so would endanger their women and children and Muhammad
replied that it was permissible because "They (i.e. women and children) are from
them (the non-believers) (Bukhari vol 4, book 56 no. 3012.
attempt in 624 during the holy and very hot month of Natiq (now called Ramadan)
was successful. The holy month of Ramadan was a time of non-violence which
may be why the caravan he raided was not prepared to defend itself. The
tradition of non-violence during Ramadan did not present a problem to Muhammad
who conveniently received a revelation that because the Quraysh did not believe
and had expelled him from the holy temple it was OK to fight with them
"Warring therein is grievous;
but to obstruct the way of God and to deny Him, to hinder men from the holy
temple, and to expel his people thence, that is more grievous than
slaughter." (Koran 2:217)
attack on a caravan bought much loot back to Medina as well as eighty ounces of
silver of ransom for two of the prisoners. Most religions do not engage in violence
on their holidays but to this day Muslims
engage in violence during Ramadan. The Highest Holy day of the Jews,
Yom Kippur, occurs during the month of Ramadan, which is a day during which Jews
in Israel were not prepared to fight, which is why, on Yom Kippur of 1973 (October 6), the Muslims
surrounding Israel attacked. After Muslims murdered Israeli tourists in
Burgas, Bulgaria, the group claiming responsibility for the attack "Qaedat
al-Jihad" released a statement
month of Ramadan is a month of holy war and death for Allah. It is a month
for fighting the enemies of Allah and God's messenger, the Jews and their
Muhammad set precedents which believers
follow to this day.
The loot which
the Muslims brought back with them from the caravan they attacked undoubtedly
drew more followers to Muhammad. Two months later Muhammad led over 300
men against a large Meccan caravan which was making its way
home from Syria.
Muhammad told his
I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers, Smite ye above their
necks and smite all their finger tips of them.
"It is likely that Allah may
give it to you as booty." (Ibn Sa'd, Vol. II, 9.)
Notice that he made it's God
will to attack and steal and kill. The lure of booty has motivated Muslims
The Turkish historian Seaddedin wrote about
the lure of booty in the Muslim attack on Constantinople in
1453. He wrote:
Having received permission to loot, the soldiers
thronged into the city with joyous hearts and there, seizing the possessors and
their families, they made the wretched unbelievers weep.
The Quraysh had large force
protecting their caravan led by Amr ibn Hisham. In order to encourage his
army to attack Muhammad told them
"By God in whose hand is the
soul of Muhammad, no man will be slain this day fighting against them with
steadfast courage advancing not retreating but God will cause him to enter
He also told them that it brings joy
to Allah when a Muslim
plunges into the midst of
the enemy without mail.” (Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 445)
This caravan was protected by men
led by Amr ibn Hisham who decided to not follow the caravan to safety but to
turn back and eliminate the Muslim threat once and for all. The battle
which took place near Badr on March 15, 624 turned into an unexpected victory
for Muhammad. According to Ibn Ishaq (Hisham 451)
Mu’awwidh passed Abu Jahl
(Amr ibn Hisham)as he lay
there helpless and smote him until he left him at his last gasp. Another Muslim
named Abdullah then came by and put his foot on Amr ibn Hisham’s neck and
taunted him before decapitating him:Then I cut off his head and brought it to the apostle saying, “This is the head
of the enemy of Allah, Abu Jahl.”… I threw his head before the apostle and he
gave thanks to Allah. (Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 451).
The Muslims captured
Uqba bin Abu Mu’ayt
the man who had dumped the camel entrails on Muhammad and he pled for his life:
“When the apostle ordered him to be killed, Uqba said,
“But who will look
after my children, O Muhammad?”
The man was put
to death. (Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 458)
"Who will look after my little girl."
the victim was slain, he added,
"I give thanks unto the Lord that hath slain
thee and comforted mine eyes thereby!
another unfortunate captive who when he realized he was going to be killed
complained that if the Quraysh had taken the Muslims prisoner they wouldn't have
killed them. Muhammad scornfully replied:
"Even were it so, I am not as
thou and Islam hath rent all bounds asunder."
has rent all bounds of decency asunder. Al-Nadr was beheaded. Non-believers
became terrified of Muhammad and his followers which is exactly what Muhammad
wanted. In fact Muhammad said:
Terror is what keeps many Muslims obedient in Islamic countries and many
infidels afraid to speak out against Islam. Today Islam is extending its power through fear even in Europe and the United
States. Those who speak out receive death threats to them and their
families and the more prominent people who speak out
Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh was killed by a Muslim after he made a film
denouncing the plight of abused Muslim women.Hotels in the U.S. who fear violence cancel speakers who warn
about the Islamic threat. Pamela Geller, spoke about this in a speech
below, a speech she could not give in the original hotel where she had booked it because the hotel
received threats of violence and cancelled it. The speech can be seen below.
Muhammad told his
victorious followers that
"the booty has been made Halal (lawful) to me (and not to anyone else). He
took the booty kept a cut for himself and then
distributed 4/5 of the to his followers telling them:
[Koran 8.41] And know that
whatever thing you gain, a fifth of it is for Allah and for the Apostle and
for the near of kin and the orphans and the needy and the wayfarer..."
It must have
occurred to Muhammad that it might occur to his followers that they could go on
raids without him in the future and not give him a cut. In order to prevent this
he convinced them that without him they would lose. Muhammad told his followers
that armies of angels had joined with them to smite the Quraysh and that similar
help would come only if they remained faithful to Allah. He even told them:
[Koran 8:17] It is not ye who
slew them; it was Allah.
Muhammad told his followers they would be victorious against overwhelming odds.
[Koran 8:65] "If there are
twenty amongst you, patient and persevering, they will vanquish two hundred;
if a hundred, they will vanquish a thousand of the unbelievers...
After the victory
at Badr Muhammad proceeded to settle scores with his detractors in Medina.
He had an elderly poet, Abu Afak murdered who had protested Muslim murders and
who mocked Muhammad for his desire to control people's lives.
Upon learning of Afak's murder, Asma bint Marwan a poetess courageously wrote verses
denigrating the men of Medina for "obeying a stranger who is none of yours".
When Muhammad heard this he had her murdered as she was nursing her youngest
child. Murder of poets and musicians by Muslims occurs today. A
Chechen poet Ruslan Akhtakhanov who had angered Muslim separatists in the North
Caucasus was shot
dead in Moscow. Ahmad Shah was murdered by the Taliban for
playing the flute. Iranian
Poet and Activist Hashem Shaabani along with 14 others,
was sentenced to death on charges of “waging war on God. He was tortured
for 3 years and executed. Mr.
wrote from prison that:
have tried to defend the legitimate right that every people in this world
should have which is the right to live freely with full civil rights. With
all these miseries and tragedies, I have never used a weapon to fight these
atrocious crimes except the pen.’”
After Asma bint Marwan was killed Muhammad turned to murdering Jews.
In the mean time
Abu Sufyan who became leader of the Meccans after Muhammad killed off most of
their leadership at Badr, assembled 3000 troops to fight Muhammad. His
forces met Muhammad's forces at a mountain near Mecca called Uhud. Although Muhammad had
told his followers that it brings joy to Allah if Muslims plunge into battle
without mail Muhammad put on two coats of mail before the battle of Uhud.
He stayed at the rear of his army and surrounded himself with bodyguards.
The Muslims were defeated and Muhammad was hit in the face by a thrown rock. Muhammad tried to flee by climbing a rock but:
He had become heavy by
reason of his age, and moreover he had put on two coats of mail so when he
tried to get up he could not so. Talha squatted beneath him and lifted
him up until he settled comfortably up on it.” (Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 577)
Why didn't Muhammad fight? Didn't he want to go to paradise? Didn't
he want to please Allah? According to Islamic scriptures Muhammad didn't
even participate in the
he organized against caravans.
The defeat probably created a very dangerous situation for Muhammad. It
must have occurred to his followers that the promises of victory he had made had
not materialized which cast doubt on his claims of being a prophet and some of
his followers may have felt it was his fault for getting them into a battle
where so many were killed. Muhammad had to come
excuses especially since he had told his followers after the battle of Badr
that Allah would grant them victory against all odds. One excuse he made
was that the debacle was necessary to “test” the believers so that “Allah may
know those who believe” (3:140).
Muhammad’s next excuse was to blame a contingent of “hypocrites” who failed to
accompany them into battle (3:167). But this had also been the case at Badr,
where the Muslims had been victorious due to Allah’s angels (seen only by
Muhammad, of course). Why no angels this time? Finally, Muhammad simply
blamed the sin of the people for their own defeat and told them to beg for his
forgiveness. They had pushed him into a battle that he did not want, and then
fought poorly, even “abandoning the messenger” (3:153) whose presence Allah had
been so generous in blessing them with (3:164). Clearly the people had let
Muhammad down, but he and Allah promised to be magnanimous if the people
acknowledged their error (3:152). For good measure, Muhammad also
added that the Devil made them do it (3:155).
One problem with all these excuses is that they did not explain how Muhammad had
gotten hit on the head. Surely he hadn't sinned against Allah so why
didn't Allah protect the head of his holy prophet?
Although Muhammad was defeated he still had a strong army which he turned against the Jews. Muhammad
issued the command to Muslims that they
Kill any Jew that falls into
your power. [Ibn Ishaq p369 in Guillame 554]
The Muslims had a truce with the
Jewish Banu Qaynuqa tribe but that was not a problem for Muhammad. He had
another convenient revelation from Allah.
[Koran 8:58] If though
fearest treachery from any group, throw back (their covenant) to them...
Notice how deviously clever this
revelation is. It is a revelation that justifies treachery against the
Jews by accusing the Jews of treachery. Modern Muslims follow in
Muhammad's footsteps in leveling
accusations against Jews. Muhammad's forces defeated the Qaynuqa
and spared them on the condition that they turn over all their property and
leave Medina. Many of the Jews left for Syria and perished.
Banishing the infidel set a precedent which was followed by the Turks in modern
banished the Armenian Christians into the desert where they too perished.
Here is a picture of banishment of the Armenians into the desert from the
Kerckhoff Art Gallery.
This precedent was followed again in July 2014 the the recently self-proclaimed

Mosul, Iraq, 48 hours to
evacuate their homes and leave behind all their possessions.
was an act of “benevolence” committed against a people who had two millennia
of continuous presence in their ancestral city.
The edict noted that as Christians, they could choose conversion, submission
as a protected minority, or death. The Christian leadership, it seems, had
“failed” to enter into negotiations on the options for submission, and the
authorities of the Islamic State said they were thus within their rights to
proceed with a wholesale massacre. However, through the “mercy” of the
Caliph, the Christians were ordered instead to leave the territory of the
state, their belongings duly reverting to the “treasury” of the new order.
This absurdity notwithstanding, the Caliph had indeed displayed relatively
“humane” restraint in his edict on the expulsion of Christians. No such
consideration was accorded to the countless victims of the Islamic State in
Northern Iraq and Eastern Syria, where public decapitations, amputations,
crucifixions, flagellation, and stonings are common punishments for
“convicts,” sentenced by “judges” who are often only teens. The historical,
archaeological, and architectural record of this land, once the cradle of
Western civilization, is now subject to systematic obliteration with acts of
arson and sabotage, each meticulously documented by the perpetrators.
There was another Jewish tribe left in Medina called the Bani Nadir. Ka'b Ibn Ashraf, the chief of the Bani Nadir worried that
his tribe would be banished as well and asked the Meccans for help in case Muhammad would attack his
tribe. Muhammad had Ka'b Ibn Ashraf assassinated.
Bani Nadir had the best-cultivated land in Yathrib. Muhammad had his eyes on
their plantations and farms.
Bukhari Volume 9, Book 92, Number 447
…So he had to come up with an excuse….
He needed a pretext to act upon his plan and confiscate the properties of these
wealthy Jews. There again, the prophet of Allah had a new “inspiration”. It was
a brilliant idea. He told his companions that the Jews had plotted to kill him.
His followers believed him when he told them of his Miiraj in the company of
Gabriele (that the angel Gabriel told him that the Jews planned to kill him).
They had no difficulty believing whatever to believe in any absurdity that he
Muhammad demanded that the
Bani Nadir leave
their homes. When they refused Muhammad told the Muslims that "The Jews
have declared war". (Tabari volume 7 159) and ordered them to lay siege to the
Jews. After two weeks of siege the Banu Nadir surrendered and agreed to go
into exile. Some fled to Syria and others to Khaibar.
Muhammad lied in order to incite his followers to attack Jews. He broke
treaties with his victims when he was strong enough to conquer them.
We have to understand the depth of the disgrace of the
enemy, until our holy hatred expands continuously and strikes like a
Likewise in his book
“Heaven on Earth” (Oxford University Press, 2011), author Richard Landes
quotes an Islamic intellectual who explains why it’s important to keep the
hatred toward Israel alive.
“The role of the Islamic stream is to keep the
flame of hatred toward Zionism burning in their souls. This is
because we are not ready to fight and use our military power, due to the
limitations forced on us. ... Nevertheless, we are capable of cultivating the flame of
hatred to this enemy in the souls of our sons, daughters, and grandchildren.
.. The fighting will come one of these days and if
by that time the ideology of hatred has faded, we will be defeated; on the
other hand, if on this day we will still hate [Israel], victory will be
ours, with the help of Allah.” (Salim Al-‘Awa, Islamic
intellectual close to Sheikh Qaradawi, published in Al-Istiqlal,

not deny that Allah had said this but explained that it did not apply to
killing infidels. Muhammad said that Allah said: (Koran 5.32-5.33)

why We decreed for the children of Israel that whosoever kills a human
being, except (as punishment) for murder or for spreading corruption in the

After banishing the Bani Nadir, the Muslims
resumed attacking Quraysh caravans and were strangling Meccan trade. The
Quraysh decided to finish off the Muslims once and for all. According to
Ibn Ishaq some of the Bani Qurayza Jews asked the Quraysh to attack but the
Quraysh had plenty of reason to attack Muhammad without Jewish encouragement.
One of the Jews Ibn Ishaq says was involved Sallam b.
Abu’l-Huqayq al-Nadir had
been assassinated so this accusation may be false and simply an
attempt to justify what Muhammad did the the Bani Qurayza after the Quraysh
attack.The Quraysh along with the Ghatafan
(northern Arab tribes to the east of Medina and Mecca) laid siege to Medina.
Muhammad had his men dig trenches around Medina to prevent a cavalry charge.
There wasn't enough food for the animals of the Quraysh to support a long siege
so they withdrew.
When the siege
was over Muhammad received a convenient revelation.
He accused the
Jewish tribe of the Bani Quraysa of wanting to betray him and the angel Gabriel
ordered him to attack them.He went
to them, put them under siege for 14 days. Finally they surrendered. So Mohammed
killed all their men, enslaved their women and children [Saheeh
Muslim - 1769].
According to Ibn Ishaq, "The
apostle went out to the market of Medina and dug trenches in it. Then he
sent for the men of Qurayzah and struck off their heads as they were brought out
to him in batches until 600 to 700 of them were dead.
The Jewish women and children were
enslaved and Muhammad took one of them, a fifteen year old girl named Rayhana
bint Zayd ibn Amr as a personal slave.
Slavery of men
and women continues
in Islamic countries such as Sudan and Mauritania.

was 51 years old, he chose to marry a 6 year old child, a marriage he
consummated when she was 9 years old (Sahih Bukhari 5.236), he explained that God wanted him
to do so:
"...the Prophet said to her (Aisha), 'You have been shown to me twice in my
dream. I saw you pictured on a piece of silk and someone said (to me). 'This is
your wife.' When I uncovered the picture, I saw that it was yours. I said, 'If
this is from Allah, it will be done.'" (Hadith, Sahih Bukhari 5:58:235)
Muhammad's marriage to
Aisha set a precedent. The picture below is of a mass wedding of 450
child brides in Gaza.
Muhammad found justifications for
the sickest sexual behavior. Raymond Ibrahim
a hadith, Muhammad took off his shirt and placed it on a dead woman and
“lay” with her in the grave. The buriers proceeded to bury the corpse and
the prophet with dirt, exclaiming, “O Prophet, we see you do a thing you
never did with anyone else,” to which Muhammad responded: “I have dressed
her in my shirt so that she may be dressed in heavenly robes, and I have
laid with her in her grave so that the pressures of the grave [also known as
of the grave”] may be alleviated from her.”
This may be the
reason Egyptian parliamentarians tried to pass a “farewell
intercourse” law legalizing sex with one’s wife up to six hours after she
One of Muhammad's many sons, Zayad married a beautiful wife by the name of Zainab and Muhammad wanted
her. According to the Muslim historian Abu Ja'far Muhammad bin Jarir al-Tabari
(839-923), one day Muhammad was talking with Aisha when "a fainting overcame
him." Then he smiled and asked, "Who will go to Zaynab to tell her the
good news, saying that God has married her to me?" He then recited the
revelation Allah had just given him, scolding him for being concerned about what
people might think and thus refusing to marry Zaynab. (Qur'an 33:37)
A funny parody of this
is on youtube and embedded below.
Muhammad even had revelations telling his followers to be quiet.
Muhammad told some noisy followers that Allah
said (Koran 49.2)
Believers, do not
raise your voices above the voice of the Prophet, nor shout aloud when speaking
to him as you do to one another... Those who speak softly in the presence of God's
apostle are the men whose hearts God has tested for piety.
A devout Muslim named Shaikh (see the book
Leaving Islam) was reading this passage when a question entered his mind.
Why is it really for Allah to tell people to show reverence to Muhammad?Can’t Muhammad tell the people these things himself?God was acting as a servant to Muhammad.This was the beginning of Shaikh’s realization
that his dear and beloved Islam was a lie.Shaikh points out another example.He writes:
If you read sura
XXXIII.56 you will see it says, “Verily, God and His Angels pray for the
prophet.”In every other religion,
it is man who worships God, but here God appears to be worshipping man
Even Muhammad's wives
noticed how Allah was acting as a servant to Muhammad. After Mohammed said
that Allah allowed him to marry his adopted son's wife one of them said:
"O Allah's Apostle I do not see
but that your Lord hurries in pleasing you. " Koran Vol. 7:48
Putting words in God's mouth in order to justify
one's behavior is a practice that continued after Muhammad's death. Robert
Spencer in his book The Truth About Muhammad wrote:
Muslims themselves acknowledge that there are a great
many forged ahadith (the plural form of hadith), which were written to give
the Prophet's sanction to the views or practices of a particular party in
the early Muslim community.
After massacring the men of the Banu Qurayza and enjoying raping at least one of their prettiest women, Muhammad led
the Muslims out to attack the Banu al Mustaliq an Arab tribe related to the
Quraysh and took their wives children and property as booty. (Bukhari, vol. 4,
book 57 no. 3128
captives that were not killed after the battle with the Banu al Mustaliq were released for ransom. Ransoming women created a
quandary for Muslims who wanted to rape them and were afraid that they might not
get money for them if they were pregnant. They asked Muhammad what to do
and he told them that they should not worry about getting the women pregnant:
"for if any soul (till the Day
of Resurrection) is predestined to exist, it will exist." (Bukhari,
Volume 5, Book 59, Number 459)
every soul that is to be born up to the day of Resurrection will be born." Ibn Ishaq 490
There were still other victims left to loot, the Jews in the Khaibar oasis, many
of whom he had banished from Medina. Muhammad then led
his massive following in a surprise attack against the Khaybar oasis and
conquered it. After conquering Khaybar Muhammad wanted to know where the wealth of Khaybar was hidden.
Kinana bin al-Rabi a Jewish leader of Khaybar, showed tremendous courage and denied knowing where the treasure
was. Muhammad told one of his followers, al-Zubayr Al-Awwam:
until you extract what he has".
Al-Zubayr kindled a fire with flint
and steel on Kinana's chest and let it burn until he was nearly dead but Kinana
protected his tribes wealth to the end and would
not reward the Muslim barbarians with his secret. When he was at the point of
death another Muslim beheaded him. (Ibn Ishaq 511).
Why was treasure so important for a prophet of God that he
would order someone be tortured for it? Isn't our inner morality more
important to a prophet of God than Gold? If Muhammad wanted Gold so much
why didn't he simply ask
merciful Allah to tell him where the treasure was instead of torturing a man to
the people of Khaybar as long as they left their gold and silver behind as part
of a deal for their surrender.
He allowed some of the farmers to stay behind as long as they gave him half
their annual yield but after Muslims discovered some of the treasure that some of the Khaybar Jews had hidden
he ordered the women and children of the tribe enslaved. (Ibn
Ishaq 515). One of the captured Khaybar women Safiyya was 17 year old girl
of "incomparable beauty" (Ibn Saad, al-Tabaqat, pp. 120-123).
She was the wife of Kinana bin al-Rabi the man the Muhammad had ordered tortured. Muhammad had also beheaded
Safiyya's father himself two years
previously along with the Jewish men of Qurayza. Muhammad forced Safiyya
to be one of his wives and
Sheikh Muhammad Sallah "Abu Rajab" gave a recent sermon in 2015 at the Al-Abrar

A popular modern

Certainly she had every reason to kill Muhammad. He had killed her father,
uncle and husband as well as many husbands and fathers of the rest of her tribe.
One can see how
this story would cause problems for Muslims. On the one hand it made the
Jews the evil killers of Muhammad justifying further murder, pillage and rape of
Jewish women. On the other hand Muhammad was supposed to be a prophet.
He should have known that there was poison in the food. The way they
solved this conundrum was to say that after taking one bite Muhammad spit it out
saying "this bone tells me that it is poisoned" and by saying he
survived the poisoning for 3 years supposedly because he was such a holy man. That way Muhammad
was amazingly holy and still
showed amazing prophetic powers in which bones spoke to him yet he could still
be poisoned by those nasty non-believing Jews. In spite of this it is
must be confusing to the Muslim mind that Allah would allow his prophet to be poisoned by the infidel
let alone the Jewish infidel. Some might wonder why he would be foolish
enough to eat food prepared by a woman whose husband and father he had killed.
In fact there are prominent
Muslims who say
that this story is false. It is likely that Muhammad or his followers
made up this story in order to incite further hatred against
the Jews. We saw similar incitement in modern times after the Palestinian
leader Yassir Arafat died of AIDS which he probably contracted because
he was a homosexual who preyed on boys in
his security detail.
August 11, 2007 Arafat’s personal physician Dr. Ashraf al-Kurdi, disclosed that
Yasser Arafat had the deadly HIV virus in his bloodstream when he died.
Dr. Ashraf al-Kurdi, Arafat's personal physician, began telling Al Jazeera
during a live interview he knew that Arafat had HIV in his bloodstream at the
time of his death, but the satellite Arabic network immediately cut him off when
he made the accusation.
Hours later, a Jordanian news website Amman quoted al-Kurdi as saying someone
injected HIV into Arafat's body before he died and that the real cause of the
Palestinian leader's death was poison…
After Arafat died a former senior aide Ahmed
Abdul Rahman, claimed that an Israeli assassin killed the
Palestinian leader by blowing a slow-acting poison into his ear. (Ex-aide Israeli
assassin poisoned Arafat in Ear, worldnetdaily.com 11/17/05) The PA ambassador in Sri Lanka, Attalah Quiba declared that Israel
killed Arafat with a high-technology laser.
Currently the accusation is that the Jews murdered Arafat with Polonium.
PA Minister of Religious Affairs Al-Habbash
"Yasser Arafat died a Martyr (Shahid) - we don't have the slightest doubt that
they (i.e., the Jews/Israelis) killed him. One way or another, they killed him.
Even Allah's Messenger [Muhammad] - they (i.e., the Jews) killed him with
poison. When he was dying, he said to his wife Aisha: 'I feel the same pain I
felt from the poison that I ate at Khaibar (Jewish village).' Poison that he ate
at Khaibar. He continued to feel the pain until he died. 'I feel the same pain I
felt from the poison that I ate at Khaibar.'"
It should be noted that in response to reports about Arafat
being poisoned, The Independent
wrote the following:
"A leading British biomedical scientist says it is 'highly unlikely' that former
Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat died in a French hospital in 2004 from a lethal
dose of radioactive polonium... Professor Nicholas Priest, who formerly headed
the biomedical research unit of the Atomic Energy Authority in Britain, told The
Independent that, while poisoning by polonium 'cannot be totally ruled out,' the
symptoms were very different from those of the Russian dissident Alexander
Litvinenko, who died in London in 2006... He pointed out that polonium would be
naturally produced in the bones of anyone buried as a by-product of the bones
absorbing lead from the soil, a point, he said, that 'the authors of the report
understand but the journalists do not'... Professor Priest said it was 'far too
dangerous and scientifically unjustified' to calculate how much polonium was in
Arafat's body on the basis of 'such tiny concentrations of polonium.'"
A discussion of the question of whether Zaynab poisoned
Muhammad and the implications of the story can be seen in the video below.
Muhammad commanded his followers to tax the infidel:
Fight those who do not
believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and
His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those
who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of
superiority and they are in a state of subjection.
The Jizya tax from the
subjugated infidel became the Muslims chief source of income. It dawned on
Muhammad that killing the infidel meant less money not more. He realized
that a live infidel who paid tribute was better than a dead infidel.
So he commanded
kill a tributary will not smell the fragrance of
In fact it
wasn't so good if too many of the conquered victims of
Muhammad became Muslims because then they couldn't be
slaves (unless a ruling was made that slaves who
converted to Islam were still slaves which did happen).
Another approach was not to convert the slaves to begin
with. Muhammad commanded
Let there be no
compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from
Error (Koran 2:256)
If it had been thy Lord's
Will, they would all have believed, all who are on
earth! Wilt thou then compel mankind, against their
will, to believe? (Koran 10:99)
Although a believer was not to be killed once he was a
tributary before he was one was a completely different
story. Muhammad's followers grew in number and
strength partly because it had become dangerous not to
be a believing Muslim. Muslims knew that they
could becoming victims of commands such as
They should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut
off on opposite sides. (Koran 5:33)
8:12, I will instill terror into the
hearts of the unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their
finger-tips off them
if they left the faith. In fact
Muhammad explicitly commanded
Whoever changes his Islamic religion,
kill him. Sahih Al-Bukhari (9:57)
Robert Spencer in his book The Truth About Muhammad wrote
that when Nicholas Berg was beheaded Iraqi Jihad leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi
Is it not time for you
[Muslims] to take the path of jihad and carry the sword of the Prophet of
prophets?.. The Prophet, the most merciful, ordered [his army] to strike the
necks of some prisoners in [the battle of] Badr and to kill them... And he
set a good example for us.

off heads in modern times can be seen below.

Notice the cut off limbs as commanded by Allah.
Muslim gangs demand the equivalent of Jizya in Demmark. 67-year-old Jane
Pedersen, owner of Cafe Viking, became a national hero in Denmark, after she
spoke out in public against the Muslim gangs that demanded "protection money"
from her because she runs a cafe in "their territory". Notice how Denmark
Muslim territory by the Muslims. There was a time when Palestine was
not considered Muslim territory but now that it is there is perpetual conflict
between the Jews and the Muslims there.
The more powerful Muhammad became the more dangerous it became not to convert to
Islam. Converting to Islam though did not make you safe, it just made you
safer. The problem was once you were a Muslim you were expected to fight. Some of those who
converted to Islam did not wish to go to battle.
received a convenient revelation that those who refused to wage Jihad even to
the point of risking their property and their very lives were not believers. (Qu'ran
9:41-45). That meant that they would would become targets of their fellow
Muslims if they did not fight for him. It was still better to convert to
Islam and fight for Islam than to be one of the men whose head was cut off.
Muhammad also said:
So ye prefer the life of this
world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life as
compared with the Hereafter. Unless ye go forth, He will punish you
with a grievous penalty , and put others in your place ... (Qur'an 9:38-39).
reassured his men that dying for him wouldn't hurt. He said in regard to
He will not feel the
agony of death.
He does not feel the pain of the killing except like that of a pinch. All the Shaheed’s sins and faults are forgiven with the first drop of blood that
comes out of his body. The
soul of the martyrs dwell in Paradise whenever they like. ·
Allah will marry him to Hur-al-een.
"From the moment the
first drop of his blood is spilled, he does not feel the pain of his wounds and
he is forgiven for all his sins; he sees his seat in Paradise; he is saved from
the torment of the grave; he is saved from the great horror of Judgment Day; he
marries 'the black-eyed'; he vouches for 70 of his family members; he gains the
crown of honor, the precious stone of which is better than this entire world and
everything in it." In a Friday sermon broadcast on Palestinian television,
Sheikh Ismail Al-Radwan declared: "He is given 72 'black-eyed.'"
Isn't the chief
Mufti of the so called moderate Palestinian Authority police force, that the
United States is providing funds to and training, supposed to try and discourage suicide bombings?
used the carrot and stick reward and punishment approach for motivating his
followers. Muhammad motivated his followers by telling them that:
The person who participates in (Holy battles) in Allah's cause ... will be
recompensed by Allah either with a reward, or booty (if he survives) or will be
admitted to Paradise (if he is killed in the battle as a martyr).
Sahih Bukhari, Vol 1 Book 2 Number 35)
Those who survived the fighting would get booty and slave girls. Muhammad
33:50 - "Prophet, We have made lawful to you ... the slave girls whom God has
given you as booty."
Muhammad told his followers that if they
died they would
enter paradise. He said:
are bashful virgins whom neither man nor jinnee will have touched before ...
virgins as fair as corals and rubies," Koran 55 46-76.
and that there are
chaste and fair ... they shall recline on green cushions and fine carpets."
If you were a follower of Muhammad who
traveled through the desert on camels or on foot, green cushions and fine
carpets might have been even more appealing than the virgins.
Here is a clip of an imam in modern times convincing a Muslim
he will go to paradise if he commits a suicide bombing.
In Islamic societies polygamous wealthy
men take the most attractive women and create an artificial women shortage on
earth so that the
only prospects of many young men are the virgins of paradise. Here is
a clip of an Islamic martyr who didn't waste time looking for women on earth because he believed that if he dedicated
Jihad he would get 70 beautiful virgins in paradise.
Muhammad's promises of paradise
were used to motivate the Muslims who perpetrated 9/11. The terror guide to the hijackers who crashed planeloads of innocent
people into the World Trade Center said:
It will be the day, God willing, you spend with the women of paradise...Know
that the gardens of paradise are waiting for you in all their beauty, and the
women of paradise are waiting, calling out, "Come hither, friend of God."
During the Iran-Iraq War, the Ayatollah Khomeini imported
500,000 small plastic
keys from Taiwan. Khomeini sent Iranian children, to the front
There, they marched in formation across minefields
toward the enemy, clearing a path with their bodies. Before every
mission, one of the Taiwanese keys would be hung around each child’s
neck. It was supposed to open the gates to paradise for them.
Iranian officers captured by the Iraqis claimed that nine out
of ten Iranian child soldiers were killed. Boys as young as nine were
reportedly used in human wave attacks and to serve as mine sweepers in the war
In order to convince
boys to commit suicide attacks against American soldiers in Afghanistan the
Taliban tells the boys that when the bomb that is tied to them goes off they
survive the flames and the shrapnel. Although Muhammad never said this
(there were no exploding suicide vests in his day) Muhammad did tell lies to get
his followers to risk their lives in battle.
Hundreds of years after
Muhammad promised virgins to his fighters, the
the Order of Assassins, the “Hashishin” were given Hashish and told that
their visions were a foretaste of paradise. In modern times Muslim
ply their followers with drugs to addict them and direct them along the path
of Islamic terror as the road to the paradise of the powder and the needle.
It may be that the soldiers were easier to control and to motivate to kill when
they depended on their leaders for drugs to satisfy their addictions. It
is no coincidence that he name assassin comes from the word Hashishin.
"Mohammed knew that most people are terribly cowardly and stupid.
That is why he promised two beautiful women to every courageous warrior who
dies in battle. This is the kind of language a soldier understands. When he
believes that he will be welcomed in this manner in the afterlife, he will
be willing to give his life, he will be enthusiastic about going to battle
and not fear death. You may call this primitive and you may laugh about it,
but it is based on deeper wisdom. A religion must speak a man's language."
Muhammad marched on Mecca with an
army of ten thousand Muslims. The inhabitants of Mecca all converted to
Islam in order to be spared.
There was one
last obstacle left between Muhammad and mastery of all of Arabia. Malik
ibn 'Awf, a member of the Thaqif tribe of the city of Ta'if, south of Mecca
began to assemble a force to fight the Muslims. Muhammad met him with an
army of 12,000 men at the Wadi of Hunayn. The Muslims prevailed.
Muhammad in order to encourage his men to keep believing they needed him had a
another useful revelation that Allah
"sent down hosts ye could not
see, and punished those who disbelieved." (Koran 9:26)
In 631 Muhammad
ordered the Muslims to begin preparation for a raid on Tabuk, then part of the
Byzantine Empire. When the Muslim troops arrived there they found that the
Byzantine troops had withdrawn without a fight. Muhammad forced area
leaders to agree to pay the Jizya tax.
Life was good for Muhammad. He had
conquered the unbeliever, had beautiful women, wealth beyond measure and was treated like a holy prophet.
It worried him though that someone else might do the same thing. What if
someone else claimed to be a prophet too and convinced people that they would go
to hell if they don't fight Muhammad. So
Muhammad told his followers that he was the last prophet. He said:
In My Ummah (Islamic Nation), there shall be born Thirty Grand Liars (Dajjals),
each of whom will claim to be a prophet, But I am the Last Prophet; there is No
Prophet after Me. (Abu Dawood Vol 2 p. 228;
Tirmidhi Vol 2 p.45)" 
May 23, 1844 long after Muhammad was dead, a Persian, Siyyid
'Ali-Muhammad did exactly what Muhammad feared would happen while he was alive and said:
I am one of the sustaining pillars of the Primal Word of God. Whosoever hath
recognized Me, hath known all that is true and right, and hath attained all that
is good and seemly; and whosoever hath failed to recognize Me, hath turned away
from all that is true and right and hath succumbed to everything evil and
unseemly...all those who cherish My love and follow My behest abiding within the
mansions of Paradise, and the entire company of Mine adversaries consigned to
the lowest depths of hell-fire.
Since Muhammad had said that he was the
last prophet, Siyyid was considered a heretic by Moslems and killed and his
followers the Bahai persecuted. The Bahai still exist and one of the
places where they found shelter from Islamic persecution is Israel among the
Jews Muhammad hated so much.
Bahai Temple in Israel
On his deathbed Muhammad had no use for booty any more but he still wanted
revenge against those who did not believe in him His final orders were
that all Jews and Christians be expelled from Arabia. Today the once
thriving Jewish communities in the Hejaz are gone and Jews and Christians have
been driven out of much of the Arab world and those that can't get out are
persecuted or killed. These Christians are not being allowed into the U.S.
while tens of thousands of Muslims are
imported per month.
Nonie Darwish in an
interview with Mark Tapson said:
Muslims ever question why the prophet of Islam’s final words at his deathbed
were not to command his followers to be holy and righteous or to make the
world a better place, but were a commandment to kill the Jews wherever they
went and to continue the genocide for him until Judgment Day.
One does not have to be a psychotherapist to find it extremely odd for a
prophet of Allah to declare a whole group of people as illegal to exist
under Islam. Nevertheless, Muslims today are unable to see the wickedness in
such a commandment and how odd it is to continue fighting the unfinished
business of Mohammed.
A century after the death of Muhammad, an Islamic empire
extended from the Atlantic Ocean in the west to Central Asia in the east.
Eventually Muslims conquered and occupied much of Africa, Europe and India. The
following map is from the
Silk road foundation
to Wikipedia the estimates for the size of the Muslim
caliphate suggest it was over 5 million square miles. Hundreds of millions
of people died at the hands of the conquering Muslims. Here is a modern map
of the part of the Muslim world that surrounds Israel.
The Muslims occupied all
these areas and oppressed and murdered their infidel inhabitants yet today they call for an
end to the Israeli occupation of what they claim to be Muslim land even though
that land was part of Israel long before Muhammad was born and even though the
Koran refers to Israel as the land of the Jews.
The Hejaz where ancient Jewish communities lived long before Islam existed is Judenrein and occupied by Muslims. Muslims like Muhammad make
false accusations against their enemies and are engaged in a very successful propaganda war in which they
portray Islam as a religion of peace and Palestinian Muslims as innocent victims
of the monstrous Jews who took away their land and who attack their children
with helicopters. Palestinian
Media Watch and MEMRI translate their
incitement for all to see. This incitement creates monsters, Palestinian
monsters. Below one can see them celebrating 9/11.
The Muslim propaganda war
manufactures allegations of atrocities including charges
that Israelis distribute radioactive toys, drop poison chocolate candies from
airplanes, sell hair products that cause Muslim infertility. Occasionally
a Muslim will admit that the real reason for the war on the Jews is such as the
author of a
Saudi Textbook who wrote:
this is a religious conflict,
not a dispute about politics or nationality, or a conflict between races or
tribes, or a fight over land or country, as some describe it
Why create this hatred?
Sheikh Muhammad Saleh Al-Munajjid gave a
Sermon in Saudi Arabia in which he explained that:
“educating the children to Jihad and to hatred of the Jews, the Christians, and
the infidels” is “what is needed now.”
Some of this "needed" education of
children can be seen in the video below:
poll conducted in July 2011, showed that 73% of 1,010 Palestinians in W.
Bank, Gaza agree with 'hadith' quoted in Hamas Charter about the need to kill
Jews hiding behind stones yet Muslim apologists blame Islamic terror on a few
The propaganda war
also targets those in the West who attempt to speak up against Islam. They
are accused of hate speech and racism when Islam is not a race and when it is
love of Western values and a desire to protect those values that motivates those
who warn about Islam. There is nothing more loving one can do for a Muslim
than liberate them from Islam, especially Muslim
Those who whitewash Islam are engaging in hate speech because they are defending
a religion that spreads hate.
One can hear Islamic
leaders in England spreading hate here.
I started this essay
by asking if Islam is a religion of peace. An examination of Muhammad's
life answers that question and makes it clear that he designed Islam to be a
cult of war. Islam has been engaged
in wars of conquest and terrorism ever since and
over its 1600 year history approximately 120 million Africans, 60 million
Christians, 80 million Hindus, and 10 million Buddhists. Why then did President
Bush and President Obama both say that Islam is a religion of peace?
One reason is that they hope that the "moderate" Muslim countries will help the U.S. in
the war on terror and against the extremist Muslims countries such as Iran only
to find that the "moderate" countries are anything but. After 9/11
the Bush administration gave billions of dollars to Pakistan to help with the
war on terror. Most of that
money was diverted to strengthen the Muslim army of Pakistan vis-a-vis the
infidel Hindus of India. While the U.S. supported Pakistan's war on
terror, Pakistan's ISI helped orchestrate the
terrorist attacks and the
attacks on the U.S. embassy in Afghanistan. While receiving U.S. aid
Pakistan was found to be
harboring Osama bin Laden. The U.S. has given billions of dollars of
aid to Egypt which is most likely to use those arms against Israel and which has
already used them against
Egyptian Christians. "Our friends the Saudis"
virulent anti-American hatred in American mosques,
nurture terrorism, and
all but one of the 9/11 hijackers came from Saudi Arabia. The single
one who didn't, Mohammed Atta came from Egypt.
Today Islam is on the march.
Muslims have taken over
and Egypt where they
persecute the infidels who live there
so that many flee and become refugees. The number of refugees created by
Islam dwarfs the number of Palestinian refugees. These Palestinian refugees
could have been absorbed but aren't and are
kept refugees by their Muslim Palestinian brothers to be used in the
propaganda war against Israel. Westerners are afraid of Muslims in their
own countries attacking them if they speak out against Islam and for good reason
as Theo Van Gogh
found out. Islam
is establishing Islamic
enclaves in Europe and even in the
United States where
infidels are afraid to go and which they claim is
theirs. Here is a video about one Muslim enclave in the
Catskill mountains of New York.
The Islamic population is overtaking the Christian population of Europe

The armies of Muhammad
are becoming nuclear armed armies.
The United States government and the
Western world, instead of taking urgent
action to destroy this growing threat
allows it to grow within their borders, silences those who speak out against it, and
feeds it with vast amounts of foreign aid and weapons while making speeches
that Muhammad's cult of war, is a religion of peace.
Did Muhammad Exist?
Most of our sources about Muhammad are religious texts and we don't know for certain if the
the Islamic texts really happened. There are
scholars of Islam such as Robert Spencer and Ibn Warraq who have written books
that argue that Muhammad never existed and
others who say he did but that the Islamic texts about his life appeared long after his
death and so are not reliable. If Muhammad never existed than the question
arises "From whence Islam?" Who would have had the motivation to make up
the story of Muhammad and the power to persuade people that the story was true?
Muslims acknowledge that many of the Hadith (passed down acts or sayings of Muhammad) were forged. Creating
fake Hadiths made it possible for Islamic leaders, to persuade their followers
that what they did or wanted to do was God's will. Perhaps these leaders
invented the story of Muhammad in order to persuade others to kill and pillage
see the invention of religious stories in
modern day Iran.
hell bent on mass producing nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them.
Their goal is to destroy Israel and defeat the West. Ayatollah Khomeini,
the founder of Iran's Islamic revolution, said that Israel "must be wiped out
from the map of the world" and Ahmadinejad quoted him in a speech and continued
God willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon experience a
world without the United States and Zionism"
Iranian leaders don't want Western sanctions over Iran's nuclear program to
create rebellion among their people. In order to keep support for their
Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi, an influential cleric said that Iran’s supreme leader,
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei ascends to the sky every year to take direction from Imam Mahdi, and sources close to the cleric have disclosed that Khamenei has been
ordered by Imam Mahdi to continue with the nuclear program despite worldwide
objection as it will facilitate his coming. Many clerics in Iran have
stated that Khamenei is the deputy of the last Islamic messiah on earth and
that obedience to him is necessary for the final glorification of Islam.
have been spread that Ahmadinejad was surrounded by a mysterious light during
his speech at the U.N. and that no one blinked during the entire speech.
There are reasons to think that the story of Muhammad is at least partly true. One reason
is because Aisha is reported to have said that the day he supposedly
ascended to heaven his body was next to her the whole time. That
casts doubt on Muhammad's story. If a religious leader made up the
story of Muhammad he would not tell stories that cast doubt on his
holiness. If a religious leader wanted to convince his rapt
audience of how the miraculous Muhammad ascended to heaven he would not
say that Muhammad's wife observed that he didn't go anywhere the night
that he supposedly ascended to heaven.
Another reason to think the story of Muhammad is at least partly true is the story that Muhammad didn't meet
the challenges of the skeptical infidels by proving that he could do miracles. If I was
making up a story of a holy prophet than I would have written that when he was
challenged to turn the mountains around Mecca into gold or do away with them
altogether he would have done so. I would have written that when Amr ibn Hisham
challenged him to carry out his threats to bring down a rain of rocks he would
have done so. I would never have written that anyone dumped the abdominal
contents of a camel on Muhammad. That raises the question of why Muhammad
didn't know someone was going to do that and why Allah didn't prevent it from
happening. I might have written that they tried but
that the abdominal contents turned to flame in their hands and consumed them.
I doubt that anyone making up a story about how Muhammad was a holy prophet
would put in events that cast doubts on his holiness or his connection to God.
The fact that the story says that he did not change the mountains and did not
bring about a hail of rocks casts doubts on his being a holy prophet of God but
is what one would expect would happen if Muhammad was a real live charlatan. It
is possible that a holy man was questioned by a skeptic about he himself didn't
do miracles and in order to do so explained that even Muhammad didn't do them.
In that case when we are trying to understand Muhammad what we are really doing
is understanding the motives of the Islamic religious leaders who created Islam.
Perhaps religious leaders added to the stories of the Islamic religion to justify
their own behavior. For example maybe some Muslim after Muhammad was
having sex with a dead woman and made up the story of Muhammad doing it in order
to justify his own behavior. It's impossible to know. What we do
know is the story of Muhammad is the story knowledgeable Muslims believe in and is the story
that makes Islam what it is today.
