in response to reader comment: Barbaric activities dosn't mean Islam

I wonder where Islam talks about the preservation of antiquities. Don't think you can find that in the Qu'ran. Islam, in my view, is all about suppression and destruction, intolerance and misogyny...insecure men who need to control and dominate and control the minds of its adherents. This is not to say that some Muslims are not peace-loving and tolerant...they are good people born into a rigid belief system with little option to convert out. This religion is severely flawed, thanks to its creator, Mohammed. a warlord who made sure his power would be sustained through the Qur'an with its emphasis on warfare and the penalty of hellfire, as well as his self-appointed title as Seal of the Prophets.

I practiced Islam for many years. I attended mosque every Friday, wrapped up like a mummy. I listened to my Muslim sister-converts turn their backs on Jesus while honoring Mohammed, a man who killed in the name of God and from whom these modern-day militants get their inspiration. I have had years to study its history and study Moahmmed's life. I think if more Muslims did this, they could in no way continue to practice this religion and their lofty beliefs about Allah and Mohammed would crumble. But Muslims are not allowed to THINK. This contributes to the 'success' of this ideology. If you do think and come to a different conclusion, hope you have enough money to hire bodyguards. There are no two more different souls than Mohammed and Jesus...I see Mohammed as the prophet of destruction and intolerance (a mindset giving rise to the destruction of antiquities which we are presently witnessing). I see Jesus as the prophet of love, compassion, tolerance and truth.
