Hi Mike

No doubt that Tablighees are very dangerous and should be included in the travel ban

There is a new book by Ayaan Hirsi Ali about the very dangerous Dawa and the title is "The Challenge of Dawa" and I hope Dr Pipes would comment on it

http://www.hoover.org/research/challenge-dawa-political-islam-ideology-and-movement-and-how-counter-it

It is very refreshing that the Hoover Institute would sponsor such book something that you will never see it happening in places like GeorgeTown University

And check this video of an interview of Ayaan Hirsi Ali the very dangerous Islamic Dawa

2. As for Muhammad: You see his Sira that was written by Ibn Ishaq but it is not extant and what we have is a redaction by Ibn Hisham (D 837 AD) and in his introduction to his book: al-Sira al-Nabawiyya he makes it very clear that he removed all the unpleasant history in the life of Muhammad This makes one wonder that the life of Muhammad was even more sordid than the one we find in Ibn Hisham's redaction

However, Henri Lammens believed (and I believe that he is correct) Muhammad's Sira is no more than exegesis of the opaque revelation called the Qur'an and I would add there is nothing historical about it

John Wansbrough goes one more step and concludes that Muhammad's Sira is really all Heilsgeschichte or Salvation History aka Pious fiction and that we really don't know very much about the life of Muhammad

BTW Ibn Ishaq is very hated by Muslims because the picture of Muhammad that emerges from his biography is that of an Arabian warlord and caravan raider and very unpleasant man
