It's quite amazing that the astute Jews who lived in the 7th century Jerusalem comletely failed to notice the Buraq coming out of the south eastern sky and mohammed alighting on to the BPA. The city guards obviously were completely derelict in their duty to have completely missed such a remarkable occurrence. Or was it a stealth Buraq and extremely hard to spot

You will not believe this one: A few years ago I posed the same question to a very pious Muslim and the question was why are the literary sources, external to the Arabic language sources, silent about such fable? And his answer was the "Blame the Jews" mantra and I'm not kidding you and that the Jews must have witnessed such event but decided not to even mention it! No I'm not kidding you

As for Muhammad and his "sucking" of the tongues of al-Hassan wa al-Hussain you will find it in no other than Sahih al-Bukhari. Can you imagine if he had oral herpes which can be a fatal infection to babies.

However a Muslim from India once told me that this was the way Arabs did back then and when I asked to provide me with historical evidence that this is what the Arabs did and my second question was: Muhammad is supposed to be perfect for all times and all places is this an accepted behaviour now? The poor guy ran away
