I wish your version of Islam that you describe was the Islam that was prodominately taught. Unfortunately it's not. And your statements that Mohammed never lifted a finger against anyone is like saying Hitler never raised a finger against anyone. Hitler didn't raise a finger against anyone in WWII, but gave the orders for others to do so. Much like your Mohammed. Are you only reading the peaceful verses in the Quran and Hadith's and ignoring the hateful ones ? If so I applaud you !!!!!!!

The Quran is a book that was written by men, not God. If it was the direct word of God it wouldn't have so many contradictions, just like the Torah, Holy Bible and the New Testament. An example of timeless teachings would be the Ten Commandments. Simple, clear, straight to the point and no human being listed as our role model. If you believe Mohammed didn't sin then we're getting to one of the root causes of our clash of civilazations. And that's how we define good and bad. A Moslem once told me that Mohammed said - "When every man is born he is touched on one side by Allah and on the other side by Satan, Jesus was the only man never touched by Satan". Whether Jesus was devine or not, I find him to be a much better role model to pattern my life after. Dear Sam, Please spread Islam with your interpretation. Hopefully someday the rest of Islam will start to ignore the violent aspect of their religious history.

May your God go with you.
