Debunking comparison of Moses with Mohamed

Reader comment on item: Israel's Predicament at 60: World's worst neighbourhood
in response to reader comment: Genesis and Deuteronomy - reply to sTs

Number of miracles personally witnessed by Moses: many including at least two where he was the only human witness--his staff turning into a live asp and back to wood, and his right hand becoming leperous then healed in Exodus 4:2-7; additionally, the ten plagues on Egypt, twice water-from-rock (despite of his failure to follow instructions the second time, in Numbers 20, which resulted in his being denied entry to Canaan), ...--too many to list without getting into a long essay.

Number personally witnessed by Mohamed: ZERO! Also, Mohammed was NOT born a slave, and was raised as a Quraish--and, in fact, considered it an entitlement to own slaves.

Makes the comparison rather laughable.
