Reader comment on item: Eight Predictions about the Middle East
in response to reader comment: What new from Muhammed

Submitted by donvan (United States), Sep 11, 2012 at 19:48

Yes, Sumba, we are all weak and will die. The question is; does the belief system we leave for the next generation promote the dignity and fredom of the individual human person, or reduce the human person to a mere group member. I'slam, contrary to popular myth, did not develop the base 10 numbering system, anymore than Americans invented Boolean algebra, or binary arithmetic. Muhammed and his visions added nothing to the codex or canon of religious thought. Violence is a legitimate tool of conversion, human slavery has never been repudiated, female exploitation and domination is firmly established. No new doctrines or revelations regarding the Christians or Jews, aside from a pathological insistence on their destruction was revealed. It is the dogma of violence which is the death sentence of I'slam. The march of history is toward a Globalized world, I'slam is in no way compatible with such a vision, hence must be diminished to insignificance.
