Reader comment on item: Friendless in the Middle East
in response to reader comment: The lost tablighees

Dhimmi No More,

You seem to be in doubt that Muhammad did not exist and I have heard you say this in other comments as well. I then have a few more questions for you: Who really started the religion of Islam? Who wrote its holy book? Did the early Caliphs such as Abu Bakr and Umar invent the prophet of Islam? Are the letters of Muhammad to Heraclis and Chosroes II forgeries?

I am a lifelong skeptic and want to get as many perspectives as possible.

Thank you in advance.
