The Naked Truth

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: ISLAM is the Egyptian mystery religion of Osiris

The truth is that Islam is not a religion of peace. It was founded, built and maintained on the basis of open warfare - against other Muslims and against Christians. Its "prophet" Mohammed, a rich trader turned savage warrior, shed the blood of fellow Muslims who refused to follow his new religion. He and his savages conquered proud cultures such as Persia and Egypt and reduced them to slaves of Allah.

Mohammed first became magistrate of Medina (in 622 CE), where he and the followers of his new religion looted their countrymen and amassed a great fortune. In 10 years, his gang conquered the entire Arabian peninsula, and Mohammed died. The Quran is the story of his conquests - how Mohammed came to kill a great number of his fellows. In the next century, Islam conquered the land from North Africa to Spain, not to mention all that is called the Middle East.

It would have conquered Europe and plunged the world in a perpetual Dark Age, if it had not been for the Battle of Tours (732 CE). By the years 1000 CE, Islam once again threatened Europe, and forced all of Christendom to unite in what is now called the Crusades, a series of wars and jihads which would last 450 years. Finally the war machine of Islam was exhausted by the Crusades.

Mohammed was the analogy of a Hitler or a Mussolini, in the sense that he used nationalist pride to establish the tyrannical reign of his religion. By declaring Islam the only true religion, and all infidels as enemies of Islam, this unity became a force of war. And as the Quran says, he is the model for all Islamic believers : "Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern (of conduct) for any one whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day, and who engages much in the Praise of Allah."
