Thank you for eloquently voicing what I had been thinking as I read these posts, dispatches from MEMRI, study the Koran, etc. I am simply amazed at how seemingly intelligent people... like Harrak and Tariq can continually defend Islam and the seventh century Arab warlord Mohammad when the truth about him and his treacherous, evil, and greedy life is made completely clear with an open-minded reading of the Koran. Reading this stuff truly makes me despair that there is some deep and sinister flaw in the human mind that causes blinding closed-mindedness. I fear this flaw will eventually destroy civilization and all of us with it.

In a prior post, Harrak actually said something like Mohammad gave captive women a choice between "sex or blood" and that's not so bad, right? At least he didn't kill them outright, so that's not so bad, right? No, he showed mercy upon them by repeatedly raping them so he could breed more little Muslim warriors until he had used them up. They're like cows. Cows give milk and meat. These women give Mohammed young little Muslim warriors. Not to mention some good sex! Ah, what a pleasant worldview is the Muslim's! Personally, I saw a couple women earlier today upon whom I wouldn't mind bestowing a little Allah-sanctioned "mercy".

And then there is Tariq, whose posts are an infinite source of wonder. How anyone could be so gullible and naive is just beyond me. He says, "banu quraiza men were killed because they broke their treaty and helped the Quraish in their war against muslims".

There have been thousands and thousands of executions like this throughout history and the excuses given are always the same – oh, those guys, "they deserved to die", "it was their own fault", "they were evil", "every last one of them lined up and actually chose to die, honest to God!" We have all come to expect such excuses the crimes from evil men the world over. But Muslims shamelessly claim these crimes were really all sanctioned by an ethical, moral God. Contrast that with Jesus, it's just amazing. I'm not even a Christian and I see a huge difference. Christ died for spreading a message of peace and love. Mohammad killed to spread a message of conquest and obedience to Mohammad and the Arabs.

Again, Lisa, thanks for your post.
