Reader comment on item: NATO Fights the Jihadis
in response to reader comment: Donvan, So sorry I asked

Submitted by donvan (United States), Oct 9, 2006 at 22:16

Greetings Infidel, rest assured I do not assume I am communicating with idiots. I suggest you refer a simple "Google" using the term "Mohammedian" which will produce sufficent validation of the term. The issue of Mohammeds' education is hardly significant. The oral tradition is sufficient to produce a "Philosophy" which is simply a perspective or teaching representing a totality of a system of political thought, which is the legacy of Mohammed.

If Mohammed had never heard of al lah, the teaching and example of his political conquest and the tactics he employed would still have adherants. Thus, as you point out, his system of political thought was the "Submission" of the various tribes to himself. This is exactly my point, the koran,hadith,or sunna,nor islam, nor the biography of Mohammed ( there are many) is of any relevance What I need to know is the political and social systems Mohammed promoted was founded on the simple,direct and expedient dictum of forced submission to the collective. Since I am not now and will never be a follower,promoter,advocate or submissive to Mohammed, the details of a Mohammedian's experience are less than useless;they are a distraction from the premise that Mohammed and his "Message" is antithetical to the Constitution of the United States, the progress mankind, and the indivdual freedoms endowed on all men (AND WOMEN) by their creator.
