Anything goes in Islam

in response to reader comment: Islam is not evil, same as Christianity or Judaism

The most violent terrorists are the purest of Muslims. They are the ones who strive to follow the example fo Mohammed, their prophet.

Do people know that prior to Muhammad's arrival to Medina there was no religions hostility between the Arabs and the Jews and it was the Mohammed, the prophet of Islam who introduced religious hate in that subcontinent for the first time? Does anybody realize that the Prophet ethnically cleansed Arabia from the Jews by massacring some of them and banishing others and enslaving their wives and children? Do you know that ALL the wars that the Prophet fought, except one, were instigated BY him, were offensive and not defensive?

The only defensive war that he fought was the war of Khandaq (ditch) that was started by the Meccans in response to tens of raids that Muhammad and his men had made at their merchant caravans, killing their men and looting their goods. Does anybody care that the Prophet of Islam had the habit of assassinating his opponents in the middle of the night? Two of his victims were a 120 year old man named Abu Afak and Asma Bint Marwan a mother of 5 small children. These two were guilty of composing satirical poetry ridiculing the messenger of Allah.

so tell me, islam is a religion of what?
