Hi Michael

The infamous Muhammad's video is indeed a case in point: The plot is from Ibn Hisham's redaction of Ibn Ishaq's Sirat Rasul Allah (Muhammad's biography) word for word and the plot is as follows:

1. Muhammad tells Khadija his wealthy wife that there is a man sitting (this man is Gabriel) so she tells him "Sit on my right thigh, do you still see him?"

2. Muhammad's replied that he still can see him Then Khadija tells him to sit on her left thigh and asked Muhammad "do you still see him?"

3. Muhammad replied that he still can see him Then Khadija tells him to sit on her lap and asked Muhammad "do you still see him?"

4. Muhammad replied "yes" Then Khadija takes of her Khimar (Islamic dress) to get ready for sex And surprise surprise Muhammad cannot see him

5. Why did Gabriel disappear? Because in Islam an angel is not supposed to be a peeping Tom

6. The conclusion? Khadija tells him that it must be an angel and the rest is history!

And here is a link from no other than Islamweb so no one would say that we kuffar make things up

http://library.islamweb.net/newlibrary/display_book.php?idfrom=268&idto=268&bk_no=58&ID=199

Readers can also copy and paste امتحان خديجة برهان الوحي or The Examination of Khadija and Proving the Revelation and then you can use a translation tool and read it It is all there in black and white

So the man that directed and produced the Muhammad's video was quoting an Islamic text He did not make anything up

The end result? The Regressive Left accused him of Islamophobia, Ignorant Muslims that have no clue what disasters they have in their books rioted and the an infamous politician blamed him for the Benghazi atrocity and made it clear that she would want him incarcerated for insulting Islam

Et voila another case of the toxic brew of Islamists and the Regressive Left and ignorant politicians

But the truth is: This funny and bizarre tradition is from one of the most revered Muslim books and that is Ibn Ishaq's Sira

The moral of the story is if it is a lie (as in telling us that the word Jihad means inner struggle instead of telling us it means holy war) then we should expose the liar and provide evidence from Muslim literary sources not in translations but in the original Arabic
