I am very insulted that you can lie about my Muhammad so casually, you really need to find proof that he was so cruel and evil. Also, you are trying to discredit Islam by destroying the legacy of Muhammad. You are trying a character assassination.

Yes, he battled for land, but he did not murder people left and right. He did not rape women, he caared for his servants and slaves and helped them finish hard tasks, he was good to his 9 (or 11) wives and his guests, he treated people with mercy (except on the battlefield. Also, just because someone has a weapon does not mean that the person is warlord, it means that the person feels that he or she needs to protect his/herself.
