Have you ever thought why there is so much rage at cartoons in muslim countries.

Big majority of muslims have no clue that Mohammed was one of the most violent men who ever lived and that he massacred, killed, pillaged looted and raped. They have no idea that Mohammed did not earn a day of honest living after becoming a muslim and lived on booty from innocent victims. Although this is all in their hadiths and siras but the religious heirarchy keep it hidden for obivious reasons..

They all believe that he was the kindest and most pious man who ever lived and never hurt a fly in his life.Quran says his life is a model for all human beigs (33.21)

What to talk of illiterate masses, most of the educated muslims writing on this forum are also totally ignorant of real Mohammed. No body reads hadiths and siras . Most of them are also ignoant of real meanings of quran which requires hadith and sira to be understood.

If the muslims at large had the knowledge about Mohammed's terrorism and very violent record, they would not run amok at the cartoons showing him as a terrorist.

Instead of going crazy they would perhaps try to justify his actions like the western knowledgable apologists who know about his life, try to justify his many young wives and concubines, his pillaging of caravans, his massacre of the 900 Quraiza jews, his asassination of critics ,his over 75 raids all over Arabia, his distribution of captured women and their rapes,and the mostly ridiculous sharia laws.
