Think for yourself, Iyana

Reader comment on item: Distinguishing between Islam and Islamism
in response to reader comment: There is only on God

Your reply quite clearly indicates that you do not choose to understand your own religion, Islam. In any case, Islamism is not a religion; it is a terrorist organization. Always has been, always will be. Read the Koran yourself if you think otherwise, and then tell me what Mohammed quite openly advocates.

His call to arms is not surprising given his background. He was subject to epileptic fits at age 5, which probably accounts for his aberrant behavior. Associating with lowlifes in Medina, he formed a gang and led them in scores of raids on trade caravans and small settlements, killing many innocents in his lust for money. He was a murderer, a thief, a bandit, a child molester (one of his 11 or 12 wives was only six, and he consummated that marriage when she was just nine), a philanderer (apart from his wives, he had many concubines and raped many other women during his village raids), a kidnapper (after the village men were all killed, he would take their widows and make them his concubines), and it still wasn't enough. He coveted and eventually married the wife of one of his two sons.

Mohammed was simply an illiterate, self-proclaimed prophet who took advantage of the credibility of those who lived in those superstitious times, 571-632 CE. The Koran was not written until many years after his death. Though some parts were compiled in 834 CE, the Koran in its entirety was first created between 200 and 300 years after he died. The Koran itself (Sura 7:157) admits that Mohammed was illiterate.

When things didn't go his way, he would simply tell any adversary that God's angel Gabriel had advocated such-and-such, and that was an end to the matter.

He ordered the assassination of two of his critics, one a woman with five children, one of whom was just a babe in arms. Before her very eyes, the baby was hacked to pieces, the four others were also killed, then the mother was raped and then killed.

All this slaughter was done in the name of Allah, and Muslims speak of Islam as a religion of peace. Don't just quote the Koran by rote, or study selected verses; read the other horrors that the Koran contains. As a sequel, read the Bible for more mayhem. Then read a detailed history of your prophet, which I'm sure your imam would not want you to examine.

Then write again and tell me what you think of your "hero." If you are a discerning person and have the guts to think for yourself, you will be ashamed of this monster, who dares to call himself a prophet. He was a prophet ...not God, though not being superstitious I do not believe in either.
