Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam

Submitted by shaan (Finland), Feb 20, 2003 at 08:32

Hi Neville,

I have a few words to you. don't forget that people who have accepted Islam they have accepted by their own sense knowing evil and good. Since Mohammad's time the people who converted to islam and who were close to him they knew who he was and thats why islam spread so far, but people like disbelievers they always propogate and made conspiracy and always made false statement about Muhammad and that's why they are not true believers. and this kind of people are always existing and existed through every prophets life. And I think what you mentioned about Mohammad what he was, if it was true, Islam would not come that far. So what you say I don't find any truth on your statement. And perhaps the man Ibn Warraq he is not a muslim, so I recommend you if you dare to know islam then read books which are written by a muslim....

Daniel:

I normally agree with almost everything you write, but you are wrong here.

I suggest you read "Why I am Not a Muslim" by Ibn Warraq.

In the Seventh Century Mohammed personally ordered the slaughter and enslavement of the Jews of Medina. After he watched the 800 Jewish men beheaded he raped one of their widows that evening.

According to Warraq, this story is compiled from Muslim sources which means it is an approved view of the Prophet.

Imagine what kind of religion Christanity would be if Christ had decreed death to all non-believers.
Submitting....
