The Historical Origin and Truth of the Founding of Islam

Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam

Submitted by Iam the Light (United States), May 8, 2007 at 23:33

The real truth about Islam, and it's a truth no one wants to explore or question, Is that Islam isn't a real religion. or is as much a real religion as say, Scientology is. Islam was manufactured by Caliphs and other Arab leaders of the day. In response to counter what they saw.as the rapidly growing threats posed by Judaism and then Christianity to their power and contorl over the arab peoples.

One has to remember that Islam and Mohammad pretty much sprang from nowhere roughly 1400 years ago. Judaism had already been around for over thousands of years and Christianity was up and coming for 600 years. But for all the centuries Judaism had been contained or kept under control by all the previous rulers of the various empires that rose and fell.

With the fall of the Roman Empire that took place over several centuries from the founding of Christianity. Judaism was no longer contained and Christianity was still viewed as a radical break away sect of Judasim. But the many Arab scholars of the Caliphs were considerably and understandibly concerned. They were quite familiar with ancient jewish texts and understood about the fullfiment of prophecy and how important it was to the Jews. It was because of this Jews had been set against from the begining

They also new that the texts instructed the jews that anyone who wasn't jewish, wasn't one of the chosen people. Therefore they were non believers and as non believer,s the Jews could do with them as they wanted. They could kill or enslave anyone and take their property and or use the non Jews in anyway they saw fit. Not exactly a tension easer, or way of building good neighbor relations.

The Arab leaders saw this and recognized it as a serious threat to their status, property and wealth. They also recognized that the Jews had a pretty good thing going which is why the Koran so closely resembles the religious texts of the Jews. So borrowing heavily from the jewish texts they conspired to create a belief system that they could use to thwart Judaism and Christianity. And at the same time exercise almost total control over their own people. When one examines Islam closely one can see that no other religion exercises such total control as to be actual enslavement of it's people. The traditional garb of women is designed as to remove all identity as a human being and thus objectify a being as property.

Not wanting to be outdone by the Jews, one can see in the Koran where the Caliphs and scholars took things a step or two farther by giving Caliphs the right to order Jihad. Whereas with Jews and Christianity, it was Vengeance is mine sayeth the lord. Also the whole thing about martyrdom and being given virgins and young boys calls into play the sexual appetites of the Caliphs and scholars of the day.

This also gave them the right to raise armies and wage wars against the Jews and Christians. Then in the final Coup d'etat, after having conquered Jerusalem. Knowing about Jewish prophecy and how when the Temple Mount were ever to be rebuilt then god would return to inhabit it and the Jewish people would rule the earth forever. So to prevent this prophecy from ever being fulfilled, they have their prophet Mohammad ascending to heaven in just the same way Jesus did in Christianity, but from a rock sitting atop the ancient ruins of the temple, Thus giving them the justification to build their own temple on top and in their minds of the day preventing any chance of the temple being rebuilt to fulfill Jewish prophesy (Game Set Match).

So thus the Caliphs and other Arab ruling classes had prevented Judaism and Chirstianity from over running the Arab world, They maintained their world and it's status quo and gave themselves the means by which to exercise absolute power over their enslaved peopl aAnd the laws they needed to do whatever they want to whomever they want whenever they wanted. That is the true origin and founding of Islam and the Koran, like it or not.
