I fail to see your correlation between Genghis Khan and Mohamed; I only used Genghis Khan as an example of those who have united diverse tribes.

Mohamed was a politician within the tribes, he moved his ideology as suited the situation; hence, the Satanic verses. He was rejected because under the tenants of Judea/Christian believes to be a prophets you must display one of three gift; healing, miracles, or prophesy. Prophesy to be considered cannot be fulfilled within one hundred years of prophet's death. A great prophet exhibits all of them to a great degree. Mohamed exhibited none, plus he also fails in meeting the basic genealogy for being a prophet, that is a descendant of Adam. This was the reason he was rejected…

Of course he had those that criticized him killed; they were a threat to his consummation of power.

I still stand by his beliefe system being shaped by the world around him, unlike many of the prophets in history who were outside of the system and paid dearly for their stand.
