Dear Maria,

I am delighted to read your comments. That's right. Muhammed, peace upon him, being the only man to have been both a founder of a major world religion Islam and a major military/political leader, is the top of 100 Most Influential People. But they call them a terrorist which is also the image used in western cartoons. Why? Western people who shows themselves as civilized and educated people usually read the titles of media news. Their knowledge on history doesn't exceed a few decades. They know all stupid details of life of celebrities but have no basic knowledge about history or other religions. Last five years they call anything unfamiliar or against them as terrorist. They lead by media. A faith healer or a TV showman called God as moon God two years ago. Christians and Jews accepted that false information easily. They agree with anything against Islam.

Karen Armstrong who is a leading British commentator on religious affairs and author of Muhammad: A Biography of the Prophet said that cartoons depicting Muhammad as a terrorist are utterly inaccurate (http://www.danielpipes.org/comments/34158). Just read the comments how angry they are with Karen Armstrong who was once popular among non-Muslims due to her book about our messenger.

They created the concept of Islam-phobia to deceive ignorant Christians. They don't hate but fear from Islam which criticize their beliefs created by St. Paul who was the main developer of Christian theology. Quran rejects the views of pagan roman Paul not Jesus. Original sin and trinity are his works not belong to Jesus who was a Jewish. Jews don't have those concepts.
As you see, they don't know their religion how can they any idea about our religion? That's why they call our messenger as false prophet. They know Buddha better than him. Why? Let's read read what Buddha says

"You are my children, I am your father; through me you have been released from your sufferings. I myself having reached the other shore, help others to cross the stream; I myself having attained salvation, am a savior of others; being comforted, I comfort others and lead them to the place of refuge. My thoughts are always in the truth. For lo! my self has become the truth. Whosoever comprehends the truth will see the Blessed One."

Our messenger never call himself as our father. We are not children but servants of Allah.
