Thank you for response. I assume you meant "The term Muslim" rather than "Muslim terms" Be that as it may, the point is that "Muslim" is inadequate to describe the belief system Muhammed advocated. As a non Muhammedian, I cannot glean much useful information regarding the pattern and practice of a belief system simply by the opinions of the believers. Muhammed,Mohammed,Mahamet, is a case in point.

The spelling of the founders name is of no consequence. His teachings and example, as well as the canon of writings, stories, laws, histories, etc is. It is exceedingly helpful to the advocates of Muhammedism to obscure and obfiscate the actual goal of Muhammedism, which so far as a disinterested observer can tell is violent and has as the fundamental credo "Submit or die". Hence it is of no value to opine over the details of the Sunnis, Shites, Humas,Hizbolla, and all the rest of the Muhammedian cults which seem dedicated to the actual execution of the Muhammedian instructions.

We have a long history of Muhammedian aggression and justification of brutality. What sect actually carried out the beheadings, plunder, enslavement, kidnappings, and mayhem is of no consequence. All were pursuant to the service of the Muhammedian agenda.
