Modern Islam - ? Ain't gonna fly.

Reader comment on item: Foreword: Why Islam's Reformers are Vitally Important
in response to reader comment: Reforming Islam? Mission impossible

I don't see the difference between "defeating Islam" or "Islamism" or "communism".. There's a bit of pointless quibbling here.
How in the world do you extricate Muhammad from any form of Islam/Islamism. 14 centuries of heinously intense Islamic slaughter and enslavement (And, I'm seriously restraining myself here.) were all patterned and justified after Islam's prophet. The existence of all Muslim controlled nations depend heavily on believing all the 14 centuries of horrific atrocities are justified by this prophet and his book the Quran.
Proposing a modern Islam or whatever you wish to call it is asking that stepping out in front of a freight train because you have a reasonable explanation that, "You need to turn around and head the other direction - You're on the wrong track.", is going to be effective is preposterous. Good luck.
Mankind had and still has all it needs religiously through the Biblical Jesus Christ. Muslims have already rejected this much more valuable alternative from the get-go. How is an alternative to Islam that eradicates Muhammad going to fly?
