Islam has been at war with everyone, including itself, for 1400 years.

If you analyze the Sira, the Ta'rikh, or History of al-Tabari, and the topical Hadith collections of Bukhari and Muslim. Using Islam's most holy books you will be able to reorder the Qur'an chronologically and set it into the context of Muhammad's life. The result is bone chilling. The depiction of the prophet by the most revered Muslim sources reveals behavior that is immoral, criminal, and violent. The five oldest and most trusted Islamic sources don't portray Muhammad as a great and godly man. They confirm that he was a thief, liar, assassin, mass murderer, terrorist, warmonger, and an unrestrained ...He authorized deception, assassinations, torture, slavery, and genocide. He was a pirate, not a prophet. According to the Hadith and the Qur'an, Muhammad and his henchmen plundered their way to power and prosperity. And by putting the Qur'an in chronological order and correlating it with the context of Muhammad's life, we find that Allah mirrored his prophet's character. Muhammad's god condoned immoral and criminal behavior. Allah boasts about being a terrorist. He claims to have deceived men, to have stolen their property, to have enslaved women and children, to having committed acts of murder, genocide, and sadistic tortures.

Muhammad claimed supremacy. He said, "If you reject my message, you will die." Emboldened by the militants he eventually came to command, he twisted the stories further in an effort to make his wanton behavior look prophetic. Biblical accounts were contorted to the point they became nonsensical in the context of the time and place they actually occurred. The Jews, in defense of their scriptures, mocked Muhammad all the more. Enraged, Allah's Messenger struck back, calling them donkeys, apes, and pigs. He ordered his followers to "kill every Jew." He'd show them who was right and who was wrong. He'd prove who was godly and who was not.

"Follow the Revelation given to you from your Lord and follow not as protectors other than Him [third person]. Little do you remember My [first person, singular] warning. How many towns have We [plural] destroyed as a raid by night? Our punishment took them suddenly while they slept for their afternoon rest. Our terror came to them; Our punishment overtook them. No cry did they utter but: ‘We were wrong-doers.'" The Islamic god's taste for terror is shocking. It's hard to fathom scripture bragging, "How many towns have We destroyed?" or, "Our punishment took them suddenly while they slept." What would possess someone to claim this was godly? The Islamic "god," by his own admission, is a terrorist.

The Prophet married Aisha in Mecca three years before the Hijrah, after the death of Khadija. At the time she was six." Ishaq:281 "When the Apostle came to Medina he was fifty-three." Tabari VII:6 "In May, 623 A.D./A.H. 1, Allah's Messenger consummated his marriage to Aisha." He would be dead in ten years; she hadn't lived that long. : Tabari IX:128 "When the Prophet married Aisha, she was very young and not yet ready for consummation." This is how it happened: Tabari IX:131 "My mother came to me while I was being swung on a swing between two branches and got me down. My nurse took over and wiped my face with some water and started leading me. When I was at the door she stopped so I could catch my breath. I was brought in while Muhammad was sitting on a bed in our house. My mother made me sit on his lap. The other men and women got up and left. The Prophet consummated his marriage with me in my house when I was nine years old."

Bukhari:V4B52N72 "The Prophet said, ‘Nobody who enters Paradise likes to go back to the world even if he got everything on the earth, except a Mujahid [Islamic fighter] who wishes to return so that he may be martyred ten times because of the dignity he receives.' Our Prophet told us about the message of Allah: ‘Whoever among us is killed will go to Paradise.' Umar asked the Prophet, ‘Is it not true that our men who are killed will go to Paradise and those of the Pagan's will go to Hell?' The Prophet said, ‘Yes.'" Bukhari:V4B52N73 "Allah's Apostle said, ‘Know that Paradise is under the shade of swords.'"
