Reader comment on item: How Terrorism Obstructs Radical Islam
in response to reader comment: islam is a peaceful religion

Islam rises and falls on Muhammad. He is the religion's sole prophet, Islam's solitary example, Allah's lone conduit. Without Muhammad, Allah, the Qur'an, and Islam would be unknown. Yet the picture the Islamic scriptures paint of this man is not flattering; his words aren't believable. According to the Qur'an and Hadith, Muhammad was a thief, rapist, and terrorist. It's hardly the example you'd want your neighbor to emulate.

Muhammad, Allah, Mecca, and the formation of Islam are completely unknown to secular history. All we know of them is derived from the Qur'an and Hadith. The earliest and most important collection of Hadith is called the Sira, or Biography. Compiled by Ibn Ishaq, the Sira provides the only written account of this man, his god, place and religion within two centuries of his death. There is no other valid source from which Muhammad can be seen, or Islam can be interpreted, differently.

To write Prophet of Doom, I analyzed the Sira, the Ta'rikh, or History of al-Tabari, and the topical Hadith collections of Bukhari and Muslim. Using Islam's most holy books I was able to reorder the Qur'an chronologically and set it into the context of Muhammad's life. The result is bone chilling. The depiction of the prophet by the most revered Muslim sources reveals behavior that is immoral, criminal, and violent. The five oldest and most trusted Islamic sources don't portray Muhammad as a great and godly man. They confirm that he was a thief, liar, assassin, mass murderer, terrorist, warmonger, and an unrestrained sexual pervert engaged in pedophilia, incest, and rape. He authorized deception, assassinations, torture, slavery, and genocide. He was a pirate, not a prophet. According to the Hadith and the Qur'an, Muhammad and his henchmen plundered their way to power and prosperity. And by putting the Qur'an in chronological order and correlating it with the context of Muhammad's life, we find that Allah mirrored his prophet's character. Muhammad's god condoned immoral and criminal behavior. Allah boasts about being a terrorist. He claims to have deceived men, to have stolen their property, to have enslaved women and children, to having committed acts of murder, genocide, and sadistic tortures.

If you are a Muslim reading these words you should be horrified and appalled, but not at me—instead at Muhammad and the clerics after him who have purposely deceived you. The evidence is overwhelming and undeniable. Prophet of Doom, relying exclusively on the Islamic Qur'an and Hadith, proves Muhammad was a con man, Allah doesn't exist, and Islam is a fraud. If you care about your soul and that of your children, you will take advantage of the evidence and render a rational verdict. If not, you are now without excuse.

If you are a non-Muslim reading these words you should be disturbed, but not at me—instead at your politicians, media, and clerics for they have purposely deceived you. Following Muhammad's example good Muslim jihadists are murdering and mutilating us while our leaders tell us that Islam is peaceful. We have been told that the terrorists have corrupted their religion when according to the evidence, Islam has corrupted them. If you care about your life and that of your children, you will survey the facts and render a rational verdict. If not, you too are now left without excuse.
