Oh dear Thatskunk, [ name is well chosen ] read again, make sure you can read my comments without rancour. Not at any time time did I say I knew 'all' about Muhammad. You have shown yourself to be exactly as other muslims I have engaged with, angry & in denial. Funny how 'everything' critical said about Islam by a non Muslim.... is wrong . I have no intention of repeating myself, save to say, you are the one who is ignorant of many things about your ideology. You like so many are blinkered.

Has it ever occurred to you that you have been so brainwashed by your tutor, a tutor who has stripped out the cruel & selfish ways of your prophet convincing you he was all kindness & love? I have quoted exact passages from the Koran only to have a practicing Muslim deny every word. Many are taught in Arabic & have no understanding whatsoever, all they do know is incorrect translations or their Imams translation. My criticism of a Muslim not being able to question , in a critical manner , the Koran or Islam, stands. When a leading scholar at the top University in Cairo, 'the' standard for Islamic studies Al Azhar founded in 970~972, is the chief centre of Arabic literature and Sunni Islamic learning in the world.... was called an apostate, thrown into prison with rats & left to die, please do not tell me it's not a sin in Islam, to question anything that was laid down thousands of years ago. In my view this is EXACTLY why Islam has not progressed, it's EXACTLY why it is still living in the dark ages. None of you can see how utterly archaic the views of an old man with ambitions of world domination, are well past their sell by date.

Look around the world !!! Take a look at the Ayatollahs of Iran , make some comparisons & do some thinking in modern terms. Words unknown towards the un-believer, love , compassion, forgiveness, tolerance, peace, respect. Muhammad was preparing hell fire when demanding an un-believer convert to Islam......... or else. Once upon a time the world believed Islam meant peace, but then the Koran was published in all languages... not only Arabic..... we soon learned it meant 'submission'. A very different meaning.

Submitting....
