[quote] but circumstances changed...we need only see his writings in Mecca and compare them to those written in Medina when Muhameed was in a position of power he was able to return and conquer mecca and surrounding areas...islam changed from a spiritual religion to a political revolution...over night....Islam is not a religion of peace and does not seek harmony with unbelievers.there beliefs are evil and they do mean us harm. Moderates are the exception and not the rule in Islam. [/quote] Muhammad was a sly man who was good at USING other people. There was no love or kindness in his preaching. Moses' teaching was strict while Jesus' teaching were of love. They did not change with the flow of time.

However, Muhammad did. He preached Love and Kindness in Mecca, to fool others - especially among the Quraisy clan from which he was born. The reason was two - One is to draw in followers, and Two is to fool non-believers into not fighting him. He was weak and living as a "minority" in a majority of non-believers who could crush him if they wanted. Matter a fact, the only reason Muhammad escaped ANY persecutions was because of his maternal uncle. But in Madinah, he did not need to wear the sheep's skin anymore. He had his followers, his own Islamic nation and he can set his own rules. So he changed. From the submissive person to the attackers. Like someone who have been bullied and now has power to bully back. So he started to raid caravans in route to Mecca, force the surrounding tribes to embrace Islam or fight (or pay Jizyah or protection money). Common sense, folks. WHICH prophet in the New Testament or the Old Testament did this sort of sly work? This is not the work of God nor God's prophet. ...
