If you had any actual idea about Islam, you would probably join the religion.
To start off, Muslims did make the Jews pay taxes, But the fact that you forgot was that , it was required by Islam for Muslims to give that same amount of money to charity. Before it went to charity they gave it to the Government who organized food banks and things like that to help EVERYONE. Those taxes also payed for their protection under the Government.

The second paragraph was completely absurd. The Prophet Muhammad PBUH did not marry any one for their money. She was actually quite beautiful and he actually worked for her for a while. The prophet PBUH also died with only 2 dinars( the currency at the time period) even though he was a succesful buisnessman at the time, therefore he was a very giving person and he didnt need her money.

Also stated in the second paragraph is something about massacre on the jewish tribes. Here is how the story goes; the jewish tribes ad the muslims had a peace treaty and, for a while everyone abided by it. But one day a muslim woman was walking along and a jewish man ripped her clothes on purpose, exposing her to everyone. While the Jewish mans friends were making fun of the woman, her husband came to deffend her. While deffending her he was killed by the jewish men. When the Prophet Muhammad PBUH heard of what happened he said that the peace treaty was broken. After that the Muslims whent into war with those tribes, but they did not do anything to elders, women, children, or people not in battle .

As for his "son's wife", that is completely wrong. None of his son's lived long enough to get married. Also, none of the rest of the response is remotely true.
