"Islam" does not exist. It may be a handy title to lable the belief system of Muhammed, but its still only a concept, an ideology based on Muhammed. If one looks at the earlier literature regarding the Muslims, they are most often called "Muhammedians ",with good reason. in pattern and practice, "Muslims" seek to emulate Muhammed.

The history of Muhammed is dismal. Frustrated that the people did not accept his preaching, he resorted to the "Sword" to spread his message of "Submit or die" and never looked back. Muhammedism cannot survive without the "Sword of Muhammed". Without violence or the threat of violence, Muhammedism is dead. So the notion that Muhammedism can be moderated ,ie "Desworded", is a result of wishful thinking, or worse willful ignorance to advance some other agenda. The harsh messaage to our Muslim brothers is: You have been deceived. The truth hurts, and it is with a sense of compassion and love that the truth must be told.

Can all these people possibly be deceived, is it possible that Muhammed was himself a deceiver and his message to "Kill for Allah" was in fact a message from the Evil one? Yes, the evil one is the great deceiver. What did muhammed bring to the table of enlightenment? Nothing. He brought the sword; the one thing that God forbids, the killing of others in His name. Yet Muhammed associated the killing of non muslims as a way to paradise and to please God. This is evil and deceptive. Muhammedism is a term disliked by many Muslims. It does not mean that Muslims worship Muhammed. It means an acceptance of the teachings of Muhammed, but those teachings are dark and deadly.

One need only look at the acts of Muslims in the advancement of their belief system to see the terrible truth. For 1400 years Muhammedism has visited terrorism on the earth and its people. Today, ignorance is used as a political tool. An educated Muslim is a danger to Muhammedism. Today, perpetual victimhood is used as a political weapon. Far from the elevation of the human spirit, Muhammedism has crushed the individual spirit, and relegated it to a level of perpetual enslavement, not to God but to the whims of men. Enslavement of women and men and children, the stoning of human beings,the mutilations, beheadings, the atrocities are endless, condoned by Muhammeds law. Muhammed is dead. He cannot reach you from the grave. You only need to say the word and you can be free...
