Reader comment on item: Islamophobia?
in response to reader comment: Aisha and Saffya (the truth)

Submitted by BOAZ_David (Australia), Sep 29, 2006 at 23:11

Clearly the comment by The Scholar are an admission of the worst characteristics of their so called prophet.

The same source reports that Mohamed ordered Kinana TORTURED to give up information about the treasure.

Secondly, Mohammed could not have married Saffya unless Kinana was dead. Her beauty was well known.

The same source shows Mohammed married her at khaiber, close to the time of the battle and NOT after the 4month and 10 day waiting period for captive women. So.. Mohammed also broke "Allah's law" in marrying her.

She is reported to have been in shock, with her cousin hysterical. So, would the Scholar have us believe that she 'happily embraced Islam' prior to the marraige ? If not (and on the balance of probability, she would not) then he broke ANOTHER law of Allah (33:50) which allows the prophet to marry BELIEVING women.

Allahs law seems to have been quite flexible. As 'convenient' revelations also allowed Mohammed to play favorites with his wives, CONTRARY to Allahs law of "treating them all equally".

Mohammed also had around 11 to 13 wives, CONTRARY to the 4 limit for others. But then..there is that 'flexible' revelation again... just imagine today if some religious leader said "Now all you followers can have one wife, but ME..... I can have as many as I like" .. they would be laughed out of town, as so obviously false it is rediculous.

There are so many evidences of cruelty and evil in this Khaiber incident, and hypocrisy, that any thought of Mohammed being "from God" is laughable in the extreme.

What we have here is a man driven by his own lusts. Contrast this with the true prophets of the Old Testament, there are NONE who acted to satisfy their own fleshly appetites.

Solomon...was not a 'prophet', he was a king. Same goes for David.

Submitting....
