I guess by your logic mohammad was an exremist muslim!!

he attacked and killed non-muslims and jews. he started the wars. he was the one who in the existing arab society started denigrating and negating existing religious practices of the arabs who were non-muslims. he was the one who captured their existing holy places, a practice which muslims followed throughout history -

church in cordoba, converted to mezquita

church of haga sophia in constantinople

other churches throughout syria

hindu/buddhist temples in Afghanistan/Pakistan/India

lol, a prophet of God, apparently cannot solve any problem except by war!! so i guess this god is also a warlord kind.

I am trying to recall how many wars did Jesus wage. and How many people did He kill.

Just because he was successful, doesnt mean he is right. A man can be sucessful in many areas but need not be right. A success cant be taken as proof of something.

Alexander and Chengis Khan also captured a vast territory. All they had to do was get drunk or smoke hashish and come back to their generals and ramble non-sense and say God told me so. and lo!! we had the recipe for another religion.
