Reader comment on item: Distinguishing between Islam and Islamism
in response to reader comment: 1.8 Million Christians converting to Islam because they actually believe in it makes me laugh, but 1.8 million converting because money issues, pressure, social climbing, promotions, threats, to divorce ,to marry several women….etc. makes more sense.

Educate yourself and stop taking a subjective view just because you've been raised to hate Islam as is shown by your evident ability to present false facts and twist reality eg. The allegation that Muhammad pbuh killed many people. He was a man who hated violence and would do anything he could to stop it. He only instructed his followers to fight when the Quraish army was at Madinas door with the mission of killing the Muslims ie. For self defence. Furthermore he only married when instructed by God. He didn't eyeball women and propose to them based on the looks. He recieved instructions from God to marry many poor and widowed women in order to protect them and give them security. As when you mention him marrying a 9 year old, this was an Arab custom. He didn't sleep with her but she, Ayesha, only stayed with him and observed his manners and way of living. She was also the daughter of his best friend, Abu Bakr. This marriage was again commanded to him by God and had many benefits to today's Muslims eg. She has narrated the second most Hadith after Abu Hurarah, without which much of Muslim knowledge would not be here today. I could go on and on about your ignorant and prejudiced comments about Islam. Jesus is indeed a great Prophet of God and Muslims revere him but you're accusations against Muhammad and Islam are anything but the truth.
