Since the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior, we have been conditioned to expect a continuance of Islamic greed and violence. Tabari IX:1 "The Prophet had been given possession of Mecca following his conquest, but he only stayed a fortnight. He received news that the sheep-herding clans of Hawazin and Thaqif were encamped at Hunayn intending to fight him." These Arabs knew what you know - Muhammad and Islam spelled trouble. Muslim militants had raided most every village in North, West, and Central Arabia. They would have attacked Eastern Arabia, too, but there was nothing there.
Ishaq:533/Tabari IX:1 "These tribes assembled after hearing about how the Messenger had conquered Mecca, thinking that the Muslims were intending to invade them next. When the Prophet heard that they had decided to defend themselves he went out to meet them at Hunayn, and Allah, the Great and Mighty, inflicted defeat on them. Allah has mentioned this battle in the Qur'an." The reference is from the 9th surah, a "revelation" that must have been dribbled down over a prolonged period. It includes segments that were intended to rally the troops and justify the attack on Mecca all the way through subsequent raids on the Byzantine Christians the following year.
As you may recall, Allah’s Hunayn recitals were sandwiched between his assault on the family unit and his attack on Christians and Jews. The Islamic god called the people who invented him "unclean" and barred them from the "house" they had built for him. Regarding the battle, he cried: Qur'an 9:25 "Assuredly, Allah gave you victory on many battlefields and on the day of Hunayn: Behold, your great numbers elated you, but they availed you naught, and you turned back in retreat. But Allah did pour His Sakinah on the Messenger and Believers, and sent down forces which you saw not . He punished the Infidels. Such is their reward." Allah was as eager to take "credit" for the savagery of his followers as Muhammad was to make his butchery appear godly. It was a symbiotic relationship.
The Arabs who had not yet been infected by Islam weren't adept fighters. Ishaq:566 "When Malik decided to fight the Apostle, he had his women, children, and cattle accompany the men. He explained that by bringing them, the men would have to fight to defend them."
There are some interesting sidebars here. First, Malik, whom the Muslims describe as "the chief sheep tender," Tabari IX:6 "sent out spies to obtain intelligence. But they came back with their joints dislocated. When he asked what had happened, they said, 'We saw white men on black horses. Before we could resist, we were struck as you see us now." Tying men's arms behind their backs and hanging them from meat hooks to dislocate their shoulders is still a preferred form of Islamic torture.
Second, Muhammad also sent out spies. His "mingled amongst the crowds gathering information," much like they do in Europe and America today. Ishaq:567 "When the spies had learned Malik's plans they returned and informed the Prophet. Muhammad in turn informed Umar , who called the Prophet a liar." Horrified, the Islamic spy said: "Umar, you may accuse me of lying, but you have denied the truth for a long time." The fact that Umar became Caliph proves you don't have to believe Islam to benefit from it. Muslim leaders play their subjects like a maestro conducts an orchestra, or more correctly, like a con plays his mark.
Third, the Muslims were overly fixated on booty. The spoils had been divided before the battle was waged. Tabari IX:3 "Since the Hawazin and Thaqif had marched with their women, children, and flocks, Allah granted them as booty to His Messenger, who divided the spoils among those Quraysh who had recently embraced Islam."
I want to thank Muhammad and his Companions for making this so easy. They have, once again, validated my theory. The motivation for Islam was sex, power, and money. Having conquered the Meccans, acquired the Ka'aba Inc., and compelled the pledge of allegiance, it was time to demonstrate Islam. With 2,000 Quraysh in tow, Muhammad raided two tribes. He divided their wealth, enslaved their children, and offered their women as a spoil - as a godly bribe. And by giving preference to the Meccans, he made them mercenaries. While the prophet didn't yet control their minds or hearts, he held sway over their wallets. Tyrants throughout time - political, corporate, and religious - have ruled in like manner.
While marching to attack the Arab tribes, Muhammad conned some pagans out of their armor and swords. Ishaq:567 "Lend us your weapons so that we may fight our enemy." Then Bakr said, Tabari IX:7 "Today we will not be overpowered on account of small numbers." But arrogance soon led to disaster. Tabari IX:8 "The Messenger marched with 2,000 Meccans and 10,000 of his Companions who had come with him to facilitate the conquest of Mecca. Thus there were 12,000 in all. Muhammad left Abd Shams in charge of Mecca." Muhammad liberated Mecca the same way Stalin liberated Eastern Europe. As they marched toward their prey, the great Sulami said: Ishaq:568 "This year the ghoul has smitten people in the midst of their tents as the ghoul has many forms.... All wild ass is inedible. The Hawazin tribe is diseased so I think that Allah’s Apostle will attack them in the morning."
The next Hadith reports: Tabari IX:8/Ishaq:569 "We descended through a sloping valley at the twilight of daybreak. But the enemy had gotten there before us and we were waylaid by them in a narrow pass. They had collected themselves and they were fully prepared. By Allah, we were terrified! As we descended, their squadrons made their first assaults on us as if they were one man. Our people were routed and fled, no one turning to look back. Allah’s Apostle withdrew and cried, 'Where are you going? Come to me. I am Allah’s Apostle! I am Muhammad, son of Abdallah.' It was of no avail. The camels just bumped into one another as the Muslims ran away." Pathetic, isn't it? "Allah’s Apostle withdrew and cried, 'Where are you going? Come to me. I am Allah’s Apostle!'"
Muhammad’s militants were under no illusions. They were out for easy booty, not some religious crusade. They were pirates because stealing was easier than working. They didn't believe Muhammad was an apostle any more than I do. They just ignored him - sage advice, if I do say so myself.
It got so bad... Tabari IX:8 "When the polytheists overwhelmed the Muslims, the Prophet got off his mount and started reciting verses in the rajaz meter: 'I am the Prophet, it is no lie, I am the son of Abd Muttalib!'" The first line was pathetic. The second was a confession. Abd Muttalib had been the last in Qusayy's line to control all aspects of the Ka'aba Inc. Muhammad was using the scam to establish his authority.
Next we learn that the previous prophet's command to "love your neighbor as yourself," didn't apply to this peculiar order of religious stalwarts. Tabari IX:10/ Ishaq:569 "When the Muslims fled, the uncouth and rude fellows from Mecca who were with us saw that we were in total disarray. Some of them spoke in a manner that disclosed the hatred they harbored against us. Abu Sufyan had divining arrows with him but another Muslim said, 'Sorcery is useless today.' Sufyan replied, 'Shut up! May Allah smash your mouth!'" This episode is alarming. First, we discover, the gambling game of divining arrows that had saved Abd Allah, Muhammad’s father, was Satanic. Second, witchcraft was routinely practiced around the Ka'aba. And third, these Meccan Muslims, who had lived next to the Black Stone for decades, knew that Allah was useless. So now they feared that things were so bad that almighty Satan couldn't even rescue them.
Things continued to spiral out of control. Tabari IX:11/Ishaq:574 "When Muhammad saw his men confused and in disarray, he repeated: 'Where are you going, men.' But not even one of them paid heed to his cries, so he went to the biggest man with the strongest voice and had him shout out to rally the troops." The first Muslims were confused. Neither they, nor their prophet, knew where they were going.
Ultimately, fewer than one percent of the 12,000 fighters responded to the Prophet's plea. Ishaq:574 "Finally a hundred were gathered around the Prophet. They confronted the enemy, and fought." But their battle cries weren't for Muhammad, Allah, or even Islam. "The first cry was, 'Help the Ansar.' And then, 'For the Khazraj.' Looking down at the mêlée as they were fighting, the Prophet said, 'Now the oven is hot.'"
According to Islamic Tradition, which as we know is a precisely accurate and unbiased account (the narrator intoned with tongue planted firmly in cheek): Tabari IX:12 "Ali came upon them from behind, hamstrung their camels and they fell on their rumps. He struck the enemy with such blows he cut off feet and shanks. The men fought, and by Allah, when those who had run away returned, they found only prisoners already handcuffed with the Apostle." That means that a force fierce enough to make 12,000 men flee was conquered, bound, and slain by 100.
Ishaq:570 "The Messenger turned to Abu Sufyan, who stood fast fighting that day. He had become an excellent Muslim after embracing Islam." That means it doesn't take much Islam to turn men violent. But it's worse than that. An hour earlier, this "excellent Muslim" was practicing "sorcery."
Tabari IX:13 "Muhammad turned to see Umm, a pregnant woman, who said, 'O Messenger! Kill those who flee from you as you kill those who fight you, for they deserve death. Here is my dagger. If any come near me I will rip them up and slit open their belly with it.'" She had listened to the Qur'an recitals and knew that Allah hated peaceful Muslims who retreated in battle. But Allah loved a good thief... "Abu Talhah alone took the spoils of twenty men whom he had killed."
This is such a charming religion. And we know it is a religion because there are killer angels. If Islam were a political doctrine they would be murderous comrades. Tabari IX:14/Ishaq:572 "While the men were still fighting I saw a black striped garment descending from the sky until it dropped between us and the enemy. I gazed, and lo, it was a mass of black ants strewn everywhere, which filled the valley. I had no doubt that they were angels and that the enemy would be routed." And that would make either Allah or the Muslim a liar, for Allah said: "He sent down forces which you saw not."
One of Muhammad’s marauders boasted about how blood and booty had motivated the first Muslims: Ishaq:571 "I went up to a man and struck off his hand, and he throttled me with the other. He would have killed me if the loss of blood had not weakened him. He fell, and I killed him while he was down. But I was too occupied with fighting to pay any more attention to him. So one of the Meccan Muslims passed by and stripped him. Then when the fighting was over and we had finished with the enemy, the Apostle said that anyone who had killed a foe could have his spoil. I told the Apostle that I had killed a man who was worth stripping but had been too busy killing others at the time to notice who had spoiled him." So Abu Bakr scolded the Muslim who had wrongly stolen the mutilated man’s clothes: "To Allah’s lions who fight for His religion go the spoils that come from their prey. Return the booty to the man who killed him.' The Apostle confirmed Abu Bakr's words. So I was given the property of the man whom I had killed. I sold it and bought a small palm grove with the money. It was the first property I ever owned." Sometimes I don't know if I should scream or just give up. The degree to which Islam’s poison corrupts men is hard to fathom. Saving mankind from this "religion" will not be easy.
Old hatreds die hard. Ishaq:572 "When the Apostle learned that one of the Meccans had died in the battle, he said, 'Allah curse him.' He used to hate the Quraysh." All the while... Tabari IX:15 "One of the Ansari who was plundering the slain came upon a Thaqif boy. He discovered that he was an uncircumcised Christian. He uncovered others and then yelled out at the top of his voice, 'Allah knows that the Thaqif are uncircumcised." Muslims had killed and robbed their first Christians.
This wouldn't be Islam without a sonnet to commemorate the occasion. Ishaq:572 "Muhammad is the man, an Apostle of my Lord who errs not, neither does he sin. Any who would rival him in goodness must fail. Evil was the state of our enemy so they lost the day. Fortunes change and we came upon them like lions from the thickets. The armies of Allah came openly, flying at them in rage, so they could not get away. We destroyed them and forced them to surrender. In the former days there was no battle like this; their blood flowed freely. We slew them and left them in the dust. Those who escaped were choked with terror. A multitude of them were slain. This is Allah’s war in which those who do not accept Islam will have no helper. War destroyed the tribe and fate the clan." With each word, Islam grew ever more violent and repulsive.
Muhammad’s disciples said that their warlord "errs not, neither does he sin," that "none could rival him in goodness." Deceit, sin, and evil have been redefined: it isn't a sin to fight, kill, terrorize, bear false witness, covet, or steal. And that's why the Qur'an and Hadith boast about such things.
The second half of Abbas' poem - turned Islamic Tradition - is frightening. It explains what happens to people who are victimized by Islam. The Muslims were the aggressors as they "came upon them like lions." They were an "army" not missionaries. "Rage" consumed them. The first Muslims were "destructive." They "forced surrender." And we know that it was Islam that had done this to them because "in the former days there were no battles like this." Death was the result: "blood flowed freely." Killing meant nothing to the Muslims as they "left them in the dust." The first Muslims were vicious terrorists: "those who escaped were choked with terror. A multitude were slain." And all this death and destruction was perpetrated in the name of their despicable spirit: "This is Allah’s war."
A second poem recited this day was no less harsh. Ishaq:574 "In faith I do not fear the army of fate. He gave us the blood of their best men to drink when we led our army against them. We were a great army with a pungent smell. And we attack continuously, wherever our enemy is found." Even the most brutal, violent, and ungodly regimes to prowl our planet would have been repulsed by a god who "gave us the blood of their best men to drink." You'd think such "scripture" would prompt a response from those who claim that today’s bloodthirsty Islamic terrorists have "corrupted their religion."
Next we find the apostle in a heroic moment. Ishaq:576 "One of our Companions told us that the Apostle walked past a woman whom Khalid had killed. He sent word to Khalid and forbade him to kill more children, women, and slaves." It’s hard to sell a corpse into slavery. And this Bukhari Hadith contradicts the moral message: Bukhari:V4B52N256 "The Prophet passed by and was asked whether it was permissible to attack infidels at night with the probability of exposing their women and children to danger. The Prophet replied, 'Their women and children are from them.'"
While they were out being religious, Allah’s cavalry elected to terrorize the good folks of Nakhlah, Awtas, and Sa'd. But they began the fun by capturing and assassinating Bijad first. Ishaq:576 "Allah’s Apostle said, 'If you get hold of Bijad, don't let him escape for he has done something evil.'" Tabari IX:18 "While fighting the Banu Sa'd. Muslim horsemen seized Bijad. They herded his family around him like cattle, and they treated them roughly." All the while, Tabari IX:20 "The captives of Hunayn, along with their possessions, were brought to the Messenger. He ordered that their captives, animals, and their possessions be taken to Ji'ranah and held there in custody."
To commemorate their captivity, a Muslim gloated: Ishaq:576 "Allah and His servant overwhelmed every coward. Allah honored us and made our religion victorious. We were glorified in the worship of the Compassionate God who destroyed them all. He humiliated them in the worship of Satan. By what our Apostle recites from the Book and by our swift horses, I liked the punishment the infidels received. Killing them was sweeter than drink. We galloped among them panting for the spoil. With our loud-voiced army, the Apostle's squadron advanced into the fray." This stuff makes Mein Kampf seem mild.
Another Muslim sang: Ishaq:578 "Crushing the heads of the infidels and splitting their skulls with sharp swords, we continually thrust and cut at the enemy. Blood gushed from their deep wounds as the battle wore them down. We conquered bearing the Prophet's fluttering standard . Our cavalry was submerged in rising dust, and our spears quivered, but by us the Prophet gained victory."
Not to be outdone, another of Muhammad’s Companions recited some very illuminating lines: Ishaq:580 "Allah’s religion is the religion of Muhammad. We are satisfied with it. It contains guidance and laws. By it he set our affairs right." Once again, I agree with the first Muslims: "Allah’s religion is the religion of Muhammad."
Still incriminating themselves: Ishaq:580 "Our strong warriors obey his orders to the letter. By us Allah’s religion is undeniably strong." Islam was not spread by word of mouth, by reason, or by the kind deeds it inspired. Islam was propagated by the sword. "You would think when our horses gallop with bits in their mouths that the sounds of demons are among them." Wherever Muslim militants are found, loud-mouthed demons are close at hand. "The day we trod down the unbelievers there was no deviation or turning from the Apostle's order. During the battle the people heard our exhortations to fight and the smashing of skulls by swords that sent heads flying. We severed necks with a warrior's blow. Often we have left the slain cut to pieces and a widow crying alas over her mutilated husband. 'Tis Allah, not man we seek to please." Just when you thought Islam couldn't get any worse, it spews ever more vitriolic violence in your face. From Sira to Sunnah to Surah, Islam is putrid.
Abbas also composed the following lines. I want you to appreciate the nature of those who, along with Muhammad, invented Islam. While Ibn Ishaq recorded a dozen pages of poetry from this day, I have tried to sift through the rubble to bring you the lines that best illuminate the mentality of the first Muslims. Ishaq:580 "We helped Allah’s Apostle, angry on his account, with a thousand warriors. We carried his flag on the end of our lances. We were his helpers, protecting his banner in deadly combat. We dyed it with blood, for that was its color. We were the Prophet's right arm in Islam. We were his bodyguards before other troops served him. We helped him against his opponents. Allah richly rewarded that fine Prophet Muhammad."
Islam immortalized one of its best: the woman killing, child abusing, genocidal, tax-collecting Khalid. Ishaq:583 "Since you have made Khalid chief of the army and promoted him, he has become a chief indeed, leading an army guided by Allah. Firmly clad in mail, warriors with lances leveled, we are a strong force not unlike a rushing torrent. We smite the wicked while we swear an oath to Muhammad...fighting in the quest of booty." Ishaq:586 "Red blood flowed because of our rage." No matter the translation, no matter the interpretation, these men were as bad as their religion.
Attacking, killing, enslaving, plundering, and terrorizing the Hawazin, Thaqif, Nakhlah, Awtas, and Sa'd villages was insufficient. Tabari IX:20 "The Messenger and his companions went directly to Ta'if." This was the town between Mecca and Yathrib whose "rabble" had "mocked and stoned the prophet" following the Quraysh Bargain and Satanic Verses. "Muhammad encamped there for a fortnight, waging war. The townsfolk fought the Muslims from behind the fort. None came out in the open. All of the surrounding people surrendered and sent their delegations to the Prophet. After besieging Ta'if for twenty days, Muhammad left and halted at Ji'ranah where the captives of Hunayn were held with their women and children. It is alleged that those captives taken numbered six thousand with women and children." Since only a hundred Muslims fought, overcoming sixty to one odds is a little farfetched. But there is an important line in the opening Hadith on the siege of Ta'if. The first Muslims had been so vicious that "all of the surrounding people surrendered."
Tabari IX:21 "Delegations of Hawazin came to the Prophet and embraced Islam. Therefore, he set their women and children free and decided to make the lesser pilgrimage directly from Ji'ranah." Freedom had never been part of this man’s vocabulary. "Embracing Islam" was tantamount to surrender, bowing in submission to Muhammad’s authority and will. So what's up? Simple economics: there were only four towns within walking distance with enough money to buy slaves: Mecca, Yathrib, Khaybar, and Ta'if. One had been invaded, two conquered, and the forth was under siege. There simply wasn't a market. Slaves need to be sheltered, fed, and watered. They are a liability to a profiteer who has no means to trade them for money.
Released of his burden, the prophet refocused his rage on Ta'if. After all, this had been the town whose leaders had once said, "If god needed a messenger, he would have chosen somebody better than you." The Hadith reports: Tabari IX:22 "Muhammad ordered that Ta'if's walled gardens should be torn down and destroyed." Ten years later our boy was still hot under the collar.
But his grudge match was little more than an irritant. Ishaq:589 "The Muslims were unable to get through the city wall, for the inhabitants had shut the gate." This is as lame as the Meccans being stumped by the trench surrounding Medina. Tabari IX:22 "The Prophet continued to besiege the town, fighting them bitterly. Both sides shot arrows at each other until one day the wall of Ta'if was stormed. A number of Muhammad’s companions went under a testudo and tried to breach it but they were showered with scraps of hot iron. They came out from under their testudo and the Thaqif shot them." Ever mean-spirited, "Muhammad then ordered that their vineyards should be cut down."
But all was not war and destruction. The prophet had but two of his two-dozen wives, concubines, and sex slaves with him on the campaign and was now longing for some variety. So... Tabari IX:24/Ishaq:590 "Muhammad told Bakr, 'I saw in a dream that I was given a large bowl filled with butter. A cock pecked at it and spilt it.' 'O Messenger of Allah, I don't think that you will attain what you desire today.'" Wouldn't you just love to turn Sigmund Freud loose on that one?
Anyway, that was it. The Muslim militants packed up their camels and headed home, grumbling all the way. Tabari IX:25 "By Allah, I did not come to fight for nothing. I wanted a victory over Ta'if so that I might obtain a slave girl from them and make her pregnant." Lovely.
On the way back home... Ishaq:587 "Ka'b ibn Malik reacted to the Apostle's decision. He said, 'We put an end to doubt at Khaybar. But we gave our swords a rest. If our swords could have spoken, their blades would have said, 'Give us Daus or Thaqif. We will tear off the roofs in Wajj. We will make homes desolate. Our cavalry will come upon you leaving behind a tangled mass. When we assault a town they sound a cry of alarm but our sharp cutting swords flash like lightning. By them we bring death to those who struggle against us. Flowing blood was mingled with saffron the morn the forces met. They were taken by surprise and we surrounded their walls with our troops. Our leader, the Prophet, was firm, pure of heart, steadfast, continent, straightforward, full of wisdom, knowledge, and clemency. He was not frivolous nor light minded. We obey our Prophet and we obey a Lord who is the Compassionate . We make you partners in peace and war. If you refuse we will fight you doggedly.'" The sword of Islam has spoken.
Ka'b continued with these words: Ishaq:587 "Our onslaught will not be a weak faltering affair. We shall fight as long as we live. We will fight until you turn to Islam, humbly seeking refuge. We will fight not caring whom we meet. We will fight whether we destroy ancient holdings or newly gotten gains. We have cut off every opponent's nose and ears with our fine swords. We have driven them violently before us at the command of Allah and Islam. We will fight until our religion is established. And we will plunder them, for they must suffer disgrace." Nothing more need be said.
This next poem begins as a fairytale; it ends as a nightmare. Ishaq:588 "Shaddad said this about the Apostle's raid on Ta'if: 'Don't help Al-Lat for Allah is about to destroy her. How can one who cannot help herself be helped? She was burned in black smoke and caught fire. Those who fight before her stone are outcasts. When the Apostle descends on your land none of your people will be left when he leaves."
Under the heading, "The Division of Booty Captured at Hunayn and Conciliation Gifts Given to Gain Men's Hearts," we find that the disgruntled mercenaries needed to be appeased. Ishaq:592 "The Apostle held a large number of captives. There were 6,000 women and children prisoners. He had captured so many sheep and camels they could not be counted." But since there was no market for the slaves, Muhammad asked his mercenaries to free those he had previously divvied up. Tabari IX:28 "The Banu Tamim were concerned. They did not want to give up their share. So Muhammad said, 'He who holds a share of these captives shall get six camels for every slave from the next booty we take.' So the Muslims returned the women and children captives."
But not every Mujahidun was so mature. The prophet was always an exception to his own rules. Ishaq:593 "From the captives of Hunayn, Allah’s Messenger gave Ali a slave girl called Baytab and he gave Uthman a slave girl called Zaynab and Umar another." As the brain trust of Islam, these fellows knew that there were no babes in paradise, so they got all the fornication they could handle right here on earth.
Umar palmed off his prize on his son Abdallah who scurried off to the Ka'aba to pay tribute to the idol for whom he had been named. He said, "I will take her when I return." But alas, the Islamic dictator said, "Let her go, for her mouth is cold, her breasts are flat. You did not take her as a virgin in her prime nor even full-figured in her middle age!" Even religious rapists have their standards.
Still bickering, the Muslims who had followed the prophet into battle yelled, Tabari IX:31/Ishaq:594 "'Muhammad, divide the spoil and booty of camels and cattle among us.' They forced the Prophet up against a tree, and his robe was torn from him. Muhammad cried, 'Give me back my robe. If there had been more sheep I would have given you some. You have not found me to be niggardly, cowardly or false." Yes they had; which is why they had so little regard for him. We were just told: Tabari IX:26 "He had captured so many sheep and camels they could not be counted." It is little wonder Muhammad prayed: Bukhari:V4B52N143 "O Allah! I seek refuge with you from distress and sorrow, from helplessness and laziness, from miserliness and cowardice, from being heavily in debt and from being overcome by men."
Let's think about this for a moment. Muhammad had led 12,000 armed militants against a tribe of sheepherders. They had slaughtered the men, stolen their property, and taken 6,000 women and children captive. It came time to pay the pirates their usual share from the spoil and he reneges. He changed the rules and promised to pay them later, out of a future raid. The first Muslims became angry, ganged up on their prophet, forced him up against a tree, and tore off his robe. In response, he lied to them.
Then, to memorialize the event, the warlord of the world's fastest growing religion proclaimed that he was distressed, sorrowful, helpless, and lazy. He confessed to being a coward. Then he said that he was miserly - a death sentence if you're a pirate. No matter how many people he enslaved or how much property he stole, he was so irresponsible, he was always broke. And while that's really bad, how can a man of god be "overcome by men?"
As bad as this affair was for Islam’s credibility, Muslim apologists cannot wish it away, for Bukhari documents it too: Bukhari:V4B53N376 "While Allah’s Apostle was accompanied by the people on their way back from Hunayn, the Bedouins started begging for things so aggressively that they forced him to go under a Samura tree where his outer garment was snatched away. On that, Allah’s Apostle stood up and said, 'Return my clothes. If I had as many camels as these trees, I would have distributed them amongst you; and you will not find me a miser, liar or coward.'" In what appears to be a related incident, we learn: Bukhari:V4B53N377 "While I was walking with the Prophet he was wearing a Najrani outer garment with a thick hem. A Bedouin came upon him and pulled his garment so violently that I could see the imprint of the hem on his shoulder caused by the violence of his pull. The Bedouin said, 'Give me something from Allah’s Fortune which you have.' The Prophet turned, smiled, and ordered that a gift should be given."
Returning to the historical and biographical accounts, we find Muhammad lying to his troops and contradicting his prayer. Tabari IX:31/Ishaq:594 "'You have not found me miserly, cowardly, or a liar.' Then he walked over to his camel and took a hair from its hump. Holding it aloft in his fingers he said, 'Men, I do not have anything of your booty, not even as much as this hair. Just filth. And that filth is what is being given to you. So, bring back my cloak, for dishonesty will be a shame, a flame, and a doom to you.'" Since even his own Sunnah proves he was lying through his teeth, Muhammad must be enjoying the shame of the flame.
This wrangling over stolen money continued for a number of pages. Muhammad had lost control; he was "overcome by men." Ever more desperate to buy loyalty, he doled out some of the booty his goons had stolen. But there never seemed to be enough. Ishaq:594 "The Apostle gave gifts to those whose hearts were to be won over, notably the chiefs of the army, to win them and through them the people." Point, game, set, match. That about wraps it up. Muhammad used stolen property to bribe men. He, like every tyrant who has ever lived, began by greasing the palms of his generals. With the military leadership sufficiently corrupted and induced, there was nothing the people could do. Their fate was sealed. And little has changed in 1,400 years. (As an interesting aside, the first and largest bribe listed was paid to the former Meccan chief, occultist, and excellent Muslim, Abu Sufyan.)
But that did not keep the troops from grumbling. The first Muslims weren't very happy with their warlord. Tabari IX:34/Ishaq:595 "Khuwaysirah came and stood by the Prophet as he was giving gifts to the people and said, 'Muhammad, I have seen what you have done today.' 'Well, what did you see?' He said, 'I don't think you have been fair.' Allah’s Messenger became angry. 'Woe to you! If justice is not to be found with me, then with whom is it to be found?'" Might I suggest any of ten billion other choices? "Umar said, 'Muhammad, allow me to kill him.'" Ishaq:595 "The Apostle said, 'Get him away from me and cut off his tongue."
Bukhari reported the naked truth about the nature of fundamental Islam: Bukhari:V4B53N373 "Allah’s Apostle got property and war prisoners and gave them to some people to the exclusion of others. The latter seemed to be displeased by that. The Prophet said, 'I give to some people, lest they should deviate from Islam or lose patience.' Amr bin Taghlib said, 'The statement of Allah’s Apostle is dearer to me than red camels.'" Bukhari:V4B53N374 "The Prophet said, 'I give to the Quraysh so that they will desire Islam, for they are nearer to their life of Ignorance and it is not strong in their hearts.'" The term the mafia uses to describe this situation is "made." A "made man" is someone who has participated in a criminal act like kidnap for ransom or murder for money. Made men continue to embrace the organization to keep the money coming and to keep from being incarcerated for their crime.
Another Bukhari Hadith confirms that the first Muslims were nothing more than bloodthirsty pirates. It also demonstrates that there was no appreciable difference between the Hadiths collected by Ishaq, Tabari, or Bukhari. Bukhari:V4B53N375 "When Allah favored His Apostle with the properties of the Hawazin tribe as Fai booty, he started giving to some of the Meccan men up to one-hundred camels each. Whereupon some Ansari said, 'May Allah forgive His Apostle! He is giving to the Quraysh and leaving us out, in spite of the fact that our swords are still dripping with the blood of the infidels.' When Muhammad was informed of what they had said, he called for the Ansar and gathered them in a leather tent. 'What is the statement which I have been informed, and that which you have said.' The smart ones replied, 'O Allah’s Apostle! The wise ones did not say anything, but the youngsters said, "May Allah forgive His Apostle; he enriches the Quraysh and leaves the Ansar poor, in spite of the fact that Ansar swords are still dribbling with the blood of the infidels..' The Prophet replied, 'I give them more because they are still close to the period of Infidelity and have just recently embraced Islam. You should be pleased to see them becoming rich.' The Ansar replied, 'Yes, O Allah’s Apostle, we are satisfied.'" The moral of the story is: You have to bribe men to make them Muslims and then threaten them to keep them that way. Bukhari:V4B53N411 "The Prophet said, 'Every betrayer will have a flag which will be fixed to him and displayed on the Day of Doom. This flag will show the betrayal he committed.'" In other words: "Mess with me and you'll go to hell."
This was an unpleasant time for Muhammad. He had bribed men to rob and plunder Arabs and Jews, but now the cupboard was bare. Tabari IX:36/Ishaq:596 "'Prophet, this group of Ansar have a grudge against you for what you did with the booty and how you divided it among your own people.' After due praise and exaltation of Allah, he addressed them. 'Ansar, what is this talk I hear from you? What is the grudge you harbor in your hearts against me? Do you think ill of me? Did I not come to you when you were erring and needy, and then made rich by Allah?'" It was getting nastier by the moment. There simply wasn't enough plunder to go around. And heaven forbid a Muslim should soil his hands producing something of value.
The Ansar were not satisfied, and they turned the tables on the pirate king - giving him a strong dose of reality. Tabari IX:37/Ishaq:596 "You came to us discredited, when your message was rejected by the Quraysh, and we believed you. You were forsaken and deserted and we assisted you. You were a fugitive and we took you in, sheltering you. You were poor and in need, and we comforted you." It was all true - every word of it. Muhammad had been "discredited" because he had accepted the Quraysh Bargain. Tempted by sex, power, and money, he had made a deal with the Devil. He blasphemed his god, reciting Satanic Verses. His demonic message had been "rejected" as delusional. The Quraysh knew that Muhammad was a demon possessed, lying charlatan, forging his scriptures by plagiarizing earlier lore. After telling the Quraysh that he was going to slaughter them, and after duping the Ansar to war against all mankind, Muhammad had become a "fugitive." He was run out of town in shame, "forsaken and deserted" by his own people - his family. He was as "poor" as his religion.
The Yathrib Arabs had foolishly comforted him, believed him, fought for him. Yet none of that fazed the prophet. Tabari IX:37/Ishaq:596 "Do you hold a grudge against me and are you mentally disturbed because of the worldly things by which I conciliate a people and win them over so that they will embrace Islam and become Muslims?" Case closed. Proof doesn't get any better than this. This is a stunning confession. Muhammad said that he used stolen property to bribe militants so that they would become Muslims. That made the first Muslims mercenaries. They were seduced and lured into Islam just as the Devil had beguiled Muhammad. Islam’s warlord bought support with booty. But alas, how can a pirate be a prophet? How can criminal behavior be religious? Stealing is illegal. Bribery is immoral. Venerating a man who advocates both makes one an accomplice. And trusting him with your soul is insane.
Caught between a rock and some hard people, Muhammad chose the rock. "Allah’s Apostle left town to make a lesser pilgrimage and ordered that the rest of the booty be held back, although some of the spoil followed him." There's nothing more religious than storing your contraband safely before you rush off to visit your rock god. Then, confirming the new religion was regurgitated paganism: Ishaq:597 "The people made the pilgrimage that year in the way the pagan Arabs used to do it."
With that two-line religious interlude over, it was time to return the focus to money. Now that Muhammad had admitted to being a lying miser without enough booty to go around, what do you suppose he did? He had already robbed everyone within camel ride, so more piracy wasn't going to work. Tabari IX:38 "In this year, the Messenger sent Amr to collect the zakat tax from Jayfar and Amr, the clans of Julanda and Azd." And... "He collected the jizyah from the Zoroastrians ." He taxed them all. It was Muhammad’s version of The New Deal.
Tabari IX:39 "In the same year the Prophet married Kilabiyyah. When she was given the choice between this world and the hereafter, and she preferred this world." That means she rejected Islam. What's more, this Hadith confirms Muhammad ignored the Qur'an's order not to befriend disbelievers.
The Tradition goes on to report: "Mariyah gave birth to Ibrahim, The Messenger entrusted the infant to Umm. Mariyah told Salma, a bond-maid of the Messenger the good news. She told a Muslim who shared it with Muhammad who in turn gave him a slave as a gift. When Mariyah gave birth to her son, the Prophet's wives became jealous."
Ishaq:597 "When the Apostle returned to Medina after his raid on Ta'if, word spread that he had killed some of the men who had satirized and insulted him. The poets who were left spread in all directions." You've got to give Muhammad credit for one thing, he knew how to control the press.
The next Hadith speaks of "short black men who used to retreat." They "excited anger against them." But then the pacifists became Muslims and turned violent. Ishaq:601 "The best men launch spears as if they were swords. They peer forward unweariedly with eyes red as burning coals. They devote their lives to their Prophet. On the day of hand-to-hand fighting and cavalry attacks they purify themselves with the blood of infidels. They consider that an act of piety. Their habit is to act like lions. They are accustomed to hunting men." Good Muslims "purify themselves with the blood of infidels." You don't suppose that this was what the dark spirit of Islam meant when he said: "Allah is the best Baptizer?"
With this, the curtain came down (most blessedly) on the eighth year of the Islamic Era. We're twenty years into this scam and it remains as ugly as its first night, the one in which Muhammad first encountered his demon.
The next day was hotter than usual. It was April 20th 630 A.D. As the sun rose, men gathered to talk about their plight. Tabari IX:42 "Amr said, 'We have been dealt a situation from which there is no escape. You have seen what Muhammad has done. Arabs have submitted to him and we do not have the strength to fight. You know that no herd is safe from him. And no one even dares go outside for fear of being terrorized." Islam had arrived and conquered. Anarchy was the result. It still is.
So Muhammad and his less-than-inspired band of thugs set out in search of unplundered territory. Tabari IX:46 "In this year, the Messenger carried out a military expedition to Tabuk." Tabuk was a Christian settlement in Byzantine Syria. They had done nothing to earn Muhammad’s wrath. They were simply a target - the nearest untapped source of booty. Ishaq:602 "The Apostle ordered Muslims to prepare for a military expedition so that he could raid the Byzantines." It would be the largest and best-equipped army Allah’s Messenger would ever lead. Thirty thousand militants heeded the call to arms. Muhammad proclaimed: "The treasures of Caesar have been given to me by conquest."
Tabari IX:48 "Muhammad wanted the people to be fully prepared so he informed them that his objective was the Byzantines. The Muslims disliked the idea because of their respect for their fighting ability." But Muhammad had invested much of his last and final surah to demeaning Christians and ordering Muslims to fight them, humiliate them, mutilate them, tax them, enslave them, and even crucify them. He couldn't let all of that wonderful godly inspiration go to waste.
The pirates, however, weren't inspired. They wanted easy booty, not war. Tabari IX:49 "One of the hypocrites, , feeling an aversion to battle, being skeptical of the truth, and spreading false rumors about Muhammad, said that they should not go out in the heat. With regard to him, Allah revealed: 'They said, "Do not march out in the heat." Say, "The heat of hell is far more intense."'" The message was nasty: "Obey my order to fight and plunder or my god will roast you in hell."
Tabari IX:49 "Muhammad urged the Muslims by way of a meeting to help cover the expenses of Allah’s Cause. The men provided mounts in anticipation of Allah’s reward." Once again, we see that neither preaching, evangelism, nor salvation entered the picture. These men weren't off on a religious crusade. "Allah’s Cause" was armed robbery. And frankly, such behavior would be inexcusable even if it only happened once in the presence of the prophet or during the formation Islam. But Muhammad’s militants were in a rut. They had fought for no other reason.
If we were to remove immoral, illegal, hateful, and violent verses from the Hadith and Qur'an, all we'd have left would be an odd collection of plagiarized and twisted Bible stories. Bad simply overwhelms good in Islam. To believe Muhammad is as foolish as protecting the doctrine he inspired.
Ishaq:602 "The Apostle always referred allusively to the destination which he intended to raid. This was the sole exception, for he said plainly that he was making for the Byzantines because the journey was long, the weather was hot, and the enemy was strong." No Byzantine had threatened Muhammad. Calling them "the enemy" simply confirms that all non-Muslims are Islam’s foe. But there is another lesson here. Today, Muslims scream with shrill voices that the Christian Crusaders attacked Muslims without provocation. Yet their own scriptures confirm that Islam drew first blood, and that Muslims invaded and conquered Christians.
But it's worse than that. Christianity had permeated what is now Iraq, Iran, Turkey, Syria, Jordan, Israel, and Egypt by the time Muhammad decided to plunder these people. Yahshua's message appealed to human hearts and minds by virtue of his words. Within a decade of the Tabuk raid, Islam would lay all of that to ruin, attacking, conquering, and taxing the once free people who occupied these places. Islam imposed its will by violent assault.
On this day, Muhammad discovered that even after promising that Allah would reward Muslims with booty beyond their dreams, most Arabs were skeptical. Tabari IX:50 "When the Prophet was prepared to set off, a number of Muslims, whose intentions had prevented them from following the Messenger, lagged behind without any doubts or misgivings." Those who knew Muhammad much better than we do recognized the obvious. There was no doubt in their minds that Islam’s founder was a money-grubbing con, a mean-spirited thug who was out for himself.
Here's an example, up close and personal: Ishaq:602 "Jadd told Muhammad, 'Will you allow me to stay behind and not tempt me? Everyone knows that I am strongly addicted to women. I'm afraid that I'll see Byzantine women and will not be able to control myself.'" This suggests that Muhammad "tempted" Muslims to fight, and that he offered them captured women as booty. "The Apostle gave him permission to remain behind." In other words, he didn't want the competition. "It was about him that Allah sent down: 'There are some who say: "Give me leave to stay behind and do not tempt me." Surely they have fallen into temptation already and hell encompasses these unbelievers.' (9:49) It was not that he feared the temptation from the Byzantine women. The temptation he had fallen into was greater in that he had hung back from the Apostle and sought to please himself rather than Muhammad. Verily hell awaits him." There are three messages here and all are bad. Being "tempted" to rape is a lesser offense than being a pacifist. The highest calling in Islam is to "please Muhammad." And, if you don't fight, you go to hell.
If you are a peaceful Muslim your god hates you, and he wants to punish you. Ishaq:603 "One of the estranged ones said to another, 'Don't go out to fight in this heat.' He disliked strenuous war, doubted the truth, and created misgivings about the Apostle. So Allah sent down regarding them, 'And they said, "Do not go out in this heat. Say, "The fires of hell are hotter. Let them laugh a little now for they will weep a great deal later as a reward for what they did.'" You will find this gem buried in the 82nd verse of "The Feast" surah. A related Hadith says: Ishaq:603 "Some Bedouins came to apologize for not going into battle, but Allah would not accept their excuses."
Ishaq:603 "The Apostle went forward energetically with his preparations and ordered the men to get ready with all speed. He urged Muslims to help provide the money, mounts, and means to do Allah’s work. Those who contributed earned rewards with Allah." This is why Islamic despots like the Saudi warlords fund terrorism. But those who have tried to cash in their reward aren't happy with the deal they struck.
Like all pirates, Muhammad had to constantly watch his backside. Tabari IX:51 "Ali seized his weapons and set off until he caught up with Muhammad. 'The hypocrites allege that you left me behind because you found me burdensome and wanted to get rid of me.' He replied, 'They lied. I left you behind because of what I have left behind. So go back and represent me in my family.'" The kind of men who were willing to rob were just as likely to pick his pockets. So the pirate king told his son and son-in-law, "Don't let them steal my booty or my babes."
The first Muslims didn't care much for the prophet's company. Tabari IX:55 "The Messenger continued his march but his men began to fall behind. The Prophet said, 'Leave them, for if there is any good in them, Allah will unite them ; if not, Allah has relieved you of them." So the quasi-peaceful Muslims died of exposure, hunger, and thirst.
Tabari IX:57 "A band of hypocrites...going along with the Prophet as he was marching toward Tabuk said, 'Do you think that fighting these people will be like the others we have fought? It looks to me as if we will be tied with ropes tomorrow.' They said this in order to intimidate and frighten the faithful. But then they said, 'Every one of us would rather be flogged a hundred lashes to escape Allah revealing a verse about us and what we have said.'" One of the Muslim snitches ratted out these men to his general. So the chief pirate turned in his saddle and confronted the bad Muslims. They protested, "'O Prophet, we were simply playing and speaking nonsense.' Then Allah sent down a Qur'an about them. 'And if you question them, then assuredly they will say, "We were only speaking nonsense and playing."'" (Qur'an 9:65) Ishaq:607 "Abd Ar-Rahman, the man for whom the Qur'an had been sent down, said, 'O Apostle, my name disgraces me.'" The rock idol Ar-Rahman was no longer vogue. And it's one more proof that Ar-Rahman was not merely a title, or attribute, for Allah.
But this wasn't a game to Muhammad; it was a scam. He had business to conduct. Tabari IX:58 "When the Messenger reached Tabuk the governor of Aylah came to him, made a treaty, and agreed to pay the jizyah tax. The people of Jarba and Adhruh also offered to pay him the tax." It was Muhammad’s favorite verse: "Gimme da money." Not a word was spoken about summoning them to Islam. Muhammad wasn't out with his troops being religious. He didn't bother calling the lost heathens to faith. No. He just wanted their money. This man wasn't a prophet. He was a pirate. His scam had become what Khadija envisioned: The Profitable Prophet Plan. The Ka'aba Inc. was now paying dividends.
Muhammad summoned additional village leaders to make their contributions. Some: Tabari IX:59/Ishaq:607 "encountered the Messenger's cavalry which was led by Khalid. Ukaydir was seized and his brother Hassan was killed. Hassan was wearing a silk brocade gown woven with gold in the form of palm leaves. Khalid stripped him of it and sent it to Muhammad. When it arrived, the Muslims felt it with their hands, admiring it." They felt no remorse for the man whose blood they had spilled upon it. They were fundamental Muslims and Islam had corrupted them with words like these: "The Prophet said, 'Are you amazed at it? The kerchiefs in Paradise are better than this.'" He, like Hitler, was incapable of pity.
Later, "Khalid brought Ukaydir to Muhammad. He spared his life and made peace with him on the condition that he pay the zakat tax." Mission accomplished, "they left Tabuk and returned to Medina." Tabari IX:60 "On the way, Muhammad ordered that whoever got to the first well before him should not drink until he arrived. Some of the hypocrites arrived and drew water. The Prophet cursed them and invoked Allah’s curse on them." Nurturing the flock wasn't part of his job description.
The translator of Volume IX of The History of al-Tabari , The Last Years of the Prophet, inserted a footnote here to make certain that we understood the nature of these expeditions. "The term sariyyah is applied to an army sent by the Prophet in contradistinction to ghazwah or maghazi, meaning a raiding party wherein the Prophet himself participates." You've got to question a religion that has words for things like this.
Bukhari:V5B59N702 "I heard Kab bin Malik narrating the story of the Ghazwah of Tabuk in which he failed to take part. Kab said, 'I did not abandon Allah’s Apostle in any Ghazwa he fought except the Tabuk raid. I failed to take part in the Ghazwa of Badr, but Allah did not admonish anyone who had not participated in it, for in fact, Allah’s Apostle had only gone out in search of the Quraysh caravan. I witnessed the night of al-Aqaba with Allah’s Apostle when we pledged for Islam, and I would not exchange it for the Badr battle although Badr is more popular among Muslims than the pledge. As for my news in this battle of Tabuk, I had never been stronger or wealthier than I was when I was with the Prophet in Ghazwas.'" This is a wonderful summation of Islam.
The Bukhari Tradition continues with: "'When I heard that the Prophet was on his way back to Medina. I got concerned, and began to think of false excuses, saying to myself, "How can I avoid his anger?" Those who had failed to join the battle of Tabuk came and started offering excuses. There were more than eighty men from whom Allah’s Apostle accepted excuses. Then he took their pledge of allegiance. When I came he smiled a smile of an angry person and then said, "What stopped you from joining us. Had you not purchased an animal for carrying you?" I answered, "Yes. But..."'" The prophet and his militants treated Kab like a pariah, banishing him from the community. They said of the twice-peaceful Muslim, "We never witnessed you sinning like this before." Then "Allah’s Apostle forbade all Muslims from talking to him. Kab said, 'I used to go out and pray with the Muslims and roam the markets, but no one would talk to me. This harsh attitude of the people lasted for a long time; even my cousin, who was the dearest person to me, did not return my greetings. Thereupon my eyes flowed with tears.'" It’s no fun being a peaceful Muslim.
Muhammad and his militants make Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda gang look like Boy Scouts. Tabari IX:64 "Hatim said, 'Adi, whatever you were going to do before Muhammad’s cavalry descended upon us, do it now, for I have seen the banners of his army.' When the Islamic cavalry left the settlement they took Hatim's daughter along with other captives. She was brought to the Messenger with slaves from Tayyi. He put her in an enclosure by the door of his mosque where the captives were detained." The mosque was now a prison, a symbol of Muhammad’s power and control, not of his religion or faith. This woman was a rape victim in waiting.
Sounding a lot like a Nazi propagandist, Hitler's Goebbels perhaps, a fundamentalist Muslim laid out Islam’s agenda: Tabari IX:69 "Arabs are the most noble people in lineage, the most prominent, and the best in deeds. We were the first to respond to the Prophet's call. We are Allah’s helpers and the viziers of His Messenger. We fight people until they believe in Allah. He who believes in Allah and His Messenger has protected his life and possessions from us. As for those who disbelieve, we will fight them forever in the Cause of Allah and killing them is a small matter to us. Peace be onto you." These are terrifying words - words that should be shouted from every political rostrum, from every pulpit, and into every microphone. This man had not corrupted Islam; Islam had corrupted him. Any doctrine that, when properly implemented, inspires such loathing, looting, and lunacy cannot be tolerated. Until Islam is held responsible for the carnage it inspires, terror will continue "forever." "Killing is a small matter" to them.
Tabari dedicates another nine pages to the ninth year of the Islamic Era. They focus on a single theme, money. Tabari IX:74 "Indeed, Allah has guided you with His guidance. If you wish to do well , obey Allah and His Messenger. You must perform the prayers, pay the zakat tax, and give a fifth share of Allah’s booty to His Messenger. The required zakat is: from the land one tenth of that watered by springs and rain, and one twentieth of that watered by the leathern bucket. From camels, a milch camel for every forty camels, and a young male camel for every thirty camels. From sheep, one for every five camels; and from cows, one from every fourth... If anyone pays more, it is to his credit. He who professes this, bears witness to his Islam and helps the faithful against the polytheists, he has the protection of Allah and His Messenger." It was the Profit's pay-me-now and pay-me-later plan. Muhammad used terrorism to confiscate property; then he used Islam to force his victims into submission so that he could tax them.
The zakat continues to be an asset-based tax of five to ten percent imposed annually on Muslims. In addition, they are required to give up one fifth of any booty they steal in the name of Islam. Bonus points are awarded for additional contributions to the ongoing war effort - Islamic Imperialism. So long as Muslims pay, they have nothing to fear. If they don't everything is confiscated and the niggardly Muslim is exterminated. Lenin, Mao, and Hitler imposed a similar regimen.
Now that Muhammad had fleeced his flock, it was time to plunder the infidels. Tabari IX:75 "He who holds fast to his religion, Judaism or Christianity, is not to be tempted from it." Now why do you think that might be? Since Muhammad and his god have said that Christian and Jewish unbelievers are the faggot's of Allah’s Hell Fire, why not "tempt" them from their torturous fate? What could be more important to a pirate, I mean profiteer, excuse me, prophet, than souls? "It is incumbent on them to pay the jizyah protection tax. For every adult, male or female, free or slave, one full denarius , or its value in al-ma'afir . He who pays that to the Messenger has the protection of Allah and His Messenger, and he who holds back from it is the enemy of Allah and His Messenger." Sheep were good, camels were better, but when it came to becoming Muhammad’s pal, nothing beat the glitter of gold. Al Capone, like the Prophet Muhammad said, "Pay me and I'll protect you from me." As with the Mafia, it was all about armed robbery. The infidel jizyah tax was imposed at a much higher rate than the Muslim zakat. Muhammad didn't want non-Muslims tempted because it would lower his income. In the choice between religion and revenue, Muhammad had chosen money.
During debates with Islamic clerics I often point out that Muslims were only tolerant because the jizyah was more lucrative than the zakat. While they don't dispute that, as it would make their prophet and god liars as opposed to pirates, they protest that the infidel tax was for their protection. "Protection from whom," I ask without response. Yet they know that the protection was from the sword of Islam as the preceding Hadith confirms. The rules of the game were straightforward: "He who holds back from paying is the enemy of Allah and His Messenger." If Christians and Jews coughed up the jizyah they got to keep their heads. It was tolerance, Islam style.
Before we press on, I'd like to highlight Muhammad’s choice of words. Jews and Christians, unlike Muslims, weren't to be "tempted." By selecting this word, the prophet corroborated my theory. Muslims were seduced into Islam with the same temptations that ensnared Muhammad: sex, power, and money.
Tabari IX:76 "The Messenger has sent Zur'ah and his Companions to you. 'I commend them to your care. Collect the zakat and jizyah from your districts and hand the money over to my messengers.' The Prophet is the master of your rich and your poor." Muhammad’s use of "messengers" was in perfect harmony with the Profitable Prophet Plan. His view of himself as "master" is corroboration of his unquenchable lust for power. And this message repudiates his claim of being a Biblical prophet in the line of Moses. Real prophets were neither tax collectors nor masters.
Muhammad said: "Malik has reported to me that you were the first from Himyar to embrace Islam and that you have killed infidels, so rejoice at your good fortune." Embrace Islam, kill, and then rejoice. It’s the quid pro quo of Muslim militancy. It is the reason the Muslim world celebrates death and honors murderers.
But Islam wasn't all money grubbing, power coveting, murderous terror - it was about discrimination, too. Tabari IX:78 "No polytheist shall come near the Holy Mosque, and no one shall circumambulate Allah’s House naked." Never mind that pagans built the Ka'aba, that it was a shrine for polytheists, or that each of the pagan rites and rituals they observed were incorporated into Islam; polytheists were no longer welcome under the big tent of the new and improved religion.
Tabari IX:79 "In this year the zakat was made obligatory, and the Messenger dispatched his agents to collect it. The verse was revealed: 'Take the zakat from their wealth to purify them.'" Allah was always ready with the perfect scripture revelation for whatever his messenger craved. It’s hard to find a god like that. It’s also hard to imagine a dogma so transparent it calls stealing "purification."
The poligious doctrine of submission laid down the law. On April 8th 631 A.D., Diman, in the Prophet's presence, prioritized: Tabari IX:80 "The obligatory acts of Islam one by one. 'The zakat tax, fasting, pilgrimage, and all the Sunnah or laws of the Prophet.'" Money was number one. And acknowledging Allah didn't even make the list.
Muhammad wouldn't be the "peace-loving" founder of the "tolerant and inclusive" religotic of Islam if he didn't terrorize somebody at the beginning of his final year. Tabari IX:82 "The Messenger sent Khalid with an army of 400 to Harith and ordered him to invite them to Islam for three days before he fought them. If they were to respond and submit, he was to teach them the Book of Allah, the Sunnah of His Prophet, and the requirements of Islam . If they should decline, then he was to fight them." Submit or die. Muhammad’s Islam wasn't the least bit ambiguous. Nor was this messenger. Khalid was the Islamic militant who had bound and butchered an entire Arab village after promising peace. Muhammad pretended to separate himself from the senseless slaughter of innocent families with an ostentatious public prayer. Yet the prophet never repudiated Khalid's behavior, never refused the booty, or refrained from sending the terrorist tax collector out on subsequent raids.
The "Sunnah of the Prophet" described in these last two Traditions is nothing more than the use of Muhammad’s example - his words and deeds - to establish ideal Islamic behavior. The Sunnah codifies religious rituals, customs, taxation, and law. This is the Hadith's parallel of the 33rd surah, in which Allah commands Muslims to emulate Muhammad’s example.
The sole repository of these "virtuous" Islamic behaviors and words is found in the Hadith. And only four collections are credible - Ishaq, Bukhari, Tabari, and Muslim - all tracing back to within 300 years of the prophet's death. By way of confirmation, the Islamic scholar who translated Muslim's Hadith wrote: "Sahih Muslim is a collection of the sayings and deeds of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). It is known as the Sunnah. These reports of the Prophet's sayings and deeds are called Hadith. Muslim lived a couple of centuries after the Prophet's death and worked hard to collect his Hadith. Each report in his collection was checked for compatibility with the Qur'an. The veracity of the chain of reporters, called an isnad, had to be painstakingly established. Muslim's collection is recognized by the overwhelming majority of the Muslim world to be one of the most authentic collections of the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)."
Muslim scholars and imams alike claim that the heinous deeds and immoral words which are comprised in the Sunnah were inspired by Allah. That makes the Hadith "scripture." That means that pedophilia, incest, polygamy, fornication, rape, deceit, seduction, indoctrination, thievery, the slave trade, racism, fighting, piracy, bribery, intolerance, political assassination, mass murder, and terrorism are authorized Sunnah - the only approved Islamic behaviors. As such, all good Muslims are bad people. To be a good person one has to be a bad Muslim or a non-Muslim. There are no exceptions.
If you believe the world needs more good Muslim rapists who conquer, plunder, terrorize, and murder while indoctrinating others to act in like fashion, continue to ignore the Third Commandment and tolerate Islam’s existence. But if you believe these behaviors will lead to death and damnation, you may want to heed the words Yahweh etched in stone 3,200 years ago: "You shall not accept or tolerate in the name or character of Yahweh, your Deity, anything that is false, deceptive, or destructive." I suggest we follow his advice.
In the last year of Muhammad’s life, the wannabe prophet turned parasitic tyrant began to sense his mortality. He had more sex, money, and power than he could handle. The only thing left was immortality. So the most vile man who ever lived commanded that his Sunnah, or example, be imposed upon the world by force of arms. The 1,400-year-long river of blood that has flowed from Medina is the result.
Tabari IX:83 "The Messenger commanded me, and I sent riders announcing, 'Arabs, embrace Islam and you will be safe.' They surrendered and did not fight. I stayed, ordering them to fulfill the requirements of Islam." Then to make certain no one would errantly accept Islam out of some misguided notion that it was a religion inspired by God rather than simply one man’s quest for sex, power, and money, Muhammad proclaimed: Tabari IX:85 "None but the purified shall touch the Qur'an." Therefore, one hundred percent of Muslims were compelled into Islam by the sword or seduced by some errant interpretation. Allah’s "revelation" persuaded no one. And I believe that is true even today. Very few Muslims understand what the Qur'an actually says. Fewer still know the Sunnah as presented by the first Hadith collectors - Ishaq, Tabari, Bukhari, and Muslim. And that's both good and bad. Good people, exposed to the truth, will reject Muhammad and discard Islam. That's good. But bad people continue to use the poligious doctrine as it was conceived for their own gain.
Tabari IX:86 "Give the people the good news of Paradise and the way to attain it . Warn them of the Hell-Fire and the way to earn it . Teach them the rites of the pilgrimage, its practices, its obligations and what Allah has commanded about the hajj and umrah.... He orders you to offer prayer at the appropriate times with proper bowing and humility.... He orders you to give one fifth of Allah’s booty and pay the zakat tax. It is enjoined on the faithful from their land and property.... And don't seduce the Jews or Christians for incumbent on them is to pay the jizyah protection tax." You just can't beat good old-fashioned religion for robbing and controlling folks. "Allah’s Apostle dispersed his representatives to every land where Islam had entered to collect the zakat." Muhammad has done a fine job of proving that Islam created a license to steal. There is no reason to call the Profitable Profit Plan a theory anymore.
Religion is the damnation of mankind. Its rituals are an opiate, deadening the mind, but it's worse than that. Religion is the most powerful and seductive control mechanism ever conceived. From the first religion instituted in Nimrod's Babylon to that imposed by the Egyptians, Assyrians, Greeks, Romans, Catholics, Muslims, Nazis, and Communists, poligious doctrines have been the source of power, control, and wealth for cleric and king. Religions have been the impetus and excuse for thievery and war. While Islam is the worst of a bad lot, most are without merit. The religions of man have served to separate men and women from freedom, prosperity, and God.
For another lesson in fundamental Islam: Tabari IX:88 "Abdallah Azdi came to the Messenger, embraced Islam, and became a good Muslim. Allah’s Apostle invested Azdi with the authority over those who had surrendered and ordered him to fight the infidels from the tribes of Yemen. Azdi left with an army by the Messenger's command. The Muslims besieged them for a month. Then they withdrew, setting a trap. When the Yemenites went in pursuit, Azdi was able to inflict a heavy loss on them." Muhammad said a "good Muslim" is a jihad fighter. And Azdi showed that a little Islam goes a long way.
Skimming over the next twenty pages in al-Tabari we find Arabs poking fun and pretending to be Muhammad. In jest they "revealed surahs in rhyming speech, imitating the Qur'an." They even made paradise on earth "permitting fornication and the drinking of wine." Others were out playing Allah, "trashing" men with "prescribed punishments and lashings." Lots of folks were "deputized," became "good Muslims," and coerced others into "submission." Armies marched, skirmishes were fought, men were killed or banished, cattle were stolen, and young girls were captured and turned into slaves. There was even talk of sorcerers and casting evil spells. One must have worked, because: Tabari IX:105 "Allah sent a thunderbolt which scorched a man and his camel."
Tabari IX:108 "When Allah’s Messenger returned to Medina after performing the hajj of Perfection in Religion, he began to have a complaint of illness." What do you suppose it was - gluttony, venereal disease, or a dead conscience? "News of the Prophet's illness spread, so Musaylimah leapt at the opportunity to claim the prophethood for himself." Abu Bakr would ultimately slaughter the Yemenites in the War of Compulsion but for now the Muslims were content to rob them. Tabari IX:111 "Ali returned from Yemen with an army dressed in white linen to meet Muhammad." But the sexy uniforms were stolen; thus they were technically part of the Yemeni booty. So they were stripped off the soldiers who had stolen them and were thrown back in with the rest of the confiscated treasure.
That brings us to Muhammad’s "Farewell Sermon." Like the rest of Islam, it was a far cry from Yahshua's Sermon on the Mount. In the opening stanza, the prophet tried to justify removing the intercalating month. Then, in the most important and revealing line Muhammad ever spoke, he said: Tabari IX:112 "Beware of Satan in your religion."
Proving that Islam could be as brutal as any occult doctrine, the sexist proclaimed: Tabari IX:113 "You have a right over your wives and they have a right over you. You have the right that they should not cause anyone of whom you dislike to tread your beds; and that they should not commit any open indecency. If they do, then Allah permits you to shut them in separate rooms and to beat them, but not severely. If they abstain from (evil), they have the right to food and clothing. Treat women well for they are like domestic animals with you and they do not possess anything themselves. Allah has made the enjoyment of their bodies lawful in his Qur'an."
As you might expect, whatever minimal "rights" women might have had in Islam didn't make the list. The abused boy had become an abuser. Women would pay for abandoning him as a child. With this speech, Muhammad condemned over a billion people. Husbands have been told that their wives are their possessions - worth no more than a domesticated animal. Men can beat women. They can strip them and lock them up in a closet. Husbands only have to feed their wives if they behave.
A Muslim Hadith confirms Muhammad’s contempt. Muslim:C35B1N142 "'O womenfolk, you should ask for forgiveness for I saw you in bulk amongst the dwellers of Hell.' A wise lady said: Why is it, Allah’s Apostle, that women comprise the bulk of the inhabitants of Hell? The Prophet observed: 'You curse too much and are ungrateful to your spouses. You lack common sense, fail in religion and rob the wisdom of the wise.' Upon this the woman remarked: What is wrong with our common sense? The Prophet replied, 'Your lack of common sense can be determined from the fact that the evidence of two women is equal to one man. That is a proof.'" The Qur'an says that the testimony of women, as well as their value, is half that of men. And the Hadith claims that Allah made women stupid. Stupid, no; wrong, yes. Women endure hellish lives in Islam, yet most non-Muslim women simply ignore their plight.
Across America, hundreds of thousands of women have been seduced into Islam. It’s presented as a way to rebel against Judeo-Christianity and the godless depravity of the media culture. Yet these women know nothing of Muhammad’s life and are offended when I read from the Qur'an and Hadith. The fundamental precepts of the Sunnah are completely alien to them. The nature of Jihad and the prophet's life don't mesh with the politically correct veneer that is used to beguile the media and the masses. Where is the public outcry against this deception, bigotry, and abuse?
I find the following words outrageous. And I'm surprised that no one seems to care. Bukhari:V3B48N826 "The Prophet said, 'Isn't the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a man.' The women said, 'Yes.' He said, 'This is because of the deficiency of a woman’s mind.'" Ishaq:584 "Tell the men with you who have wives: never trust a woman." Every aspect of Islam is rotten. It’s repressive, racist, sexist, and unforgivably violent. Islam is the most lethal form of religious poison ever concocted.
Yet it's simplistic. It’s amazing that something this infantile could wreak such havoc. Tabari IX:115 "The Messenger completed the pilgrimage, showed the people its rites, and taught them what was required of them including the stations, the throwing of pebbles, the running around the Ka'aba, and what Allah had permitted them to do , and what He had forbidden ." The pilgrimage, the rites, the stations, the throwing of pebbles, and the circumambulation were all part of Qusayy's scam. And the other requirements - fighting and sharing booty - were brutal and immoral.
As the aged prophet was petering out, his companions wanted an accurate accounting of the things that mattered most to Muhammad. The next twenty-seven pages of al-Tabari's History are dedicated to counting the number of terrorist raids the prophet personally led, those he simply commissioned, the people he had assassinated, the times he had humbled the Meccans with his presence, and the number of wives, concubines and sex slaves in his harem. Tabari, Ishaq, Bukhari, and Muslim all cover this same material. But so as to provide a sense of proportion, I am going to stick with one account. And I am going to cover this summation in the order in which it was reported.
Tabari IX:115 "The military expeditions (Ghazawat) in which the Messenger personally participated were twenty-six. Some say there were twenty-seven." The victims are listed in the order they were abused, which is puzzling. If Muslims can remember exactly whom they robbed and when, but can't remember what a surah comprised or when it was revealed, what does it say about their priorities?
Tabari IX:118 "The armies and raiding parties sent by the Messenger of Allah between the time he came to Medina and his death (ten years) was thirty-five." This rather chilling admission is followed by another detailed and chronological listing of tribes. But there was no unanimity of opinion. A subsequent Hadith claims: "The armies and raiding parties sent by the Messenger were forty-eight." When you add the number of raids the prophet led to the number he sent, the total becomes alarming. In just over one hundred months he instigated seventy-five assaults. Combined with the three-dozen men and women he specifically ordered his militants to assassinate, it adds up to at least one slaying or mass murder for each month Muhammad ruled during the Islamic Era. That makes the prophet the most successful Muslim terrorist of all time. "Peace be unto him."
And he wasn't through. After assassinating Yusayr, a Jew from Khaybar, by severing his leg and letting him bleed to death, the prophet sent his Islamic commandoes out to slay another. Tabari IX:121 "The Messenger called me and said, 'I suspect that Khalid Sufyan is going to attack me. So go to him and kill him.' 'O Prophet, describe him to me so that I might know him.' He said, 'When you see him he will remind you of Satan.'" Which is to say, "He will look, act, and talk like Muhammad.
Demonstrating the traits of a good Muslim, the assassin managed to track his victim down, pray, and then murder him in front of his wife and daughters. Tabari IX:121 "When it was feasible for me, I struck him with my sword and killed him. Then I departed, leaving his women to throw themselves at him. When I returned to the Prophet, he asked, 'Is your mission accomplished?' 'Yes. I have killed him.'" Islam might be a religion after all: Muhammad’s henchman was on a "mission."
Following more assassinations, there were additional raids. Tabari IX:122 "Muhammad sent Uyaynah to raid The Banu Anbar. They killed some people and took others captive. Asma was one of the women taken prisoner." It was all in a day's work - part of the rites and rituals of Islam. Tabari IX:123 "Muhammad sent an expedition to Ghalib and to the land of the Banu Murrah. The expedition of Amr and Abi was sent to the valley of Idam. Another by Aslami was sent to Ghabah. And Abd al-Rahman was ordered by the Messenger to lead an army to the seashore." Let's just assume that these terrorist attacks were included in the original seventy-five. Enough already.
Tabari IX:126 "The Messenger of Allah married fifteen women. He combined eleven at a time and left behind nine." This, of course, does not include rape victims, concubines, and sex slaves but does include pedophilia and incest.
Speaking of pedophilia: Ishaq:311 "The Apostle saw Ummu'l when she was a baby crawling before his feet and said, 'If she grows up, I will marry her.' But he died before he was able to do so." Tabari IX:128 "Aisha, when he married her was very young and not yet ready for consummation." Tabari IX:130 "Bakr married Aisha to Muhammad when she was only six years old." Tabari IX:131 "My mother came to me while I was being swung on a swing between two branches and got me down. My nurse wiped my face with some water and started leading me. When I was at the door she stopped so I could catch my breath. I was then brought in while the Messenger was sitting on a bed in our house. My mother made me sit on his lap. Then the men and women got up and left. The Prophet consummated his marriage with me in my house when I was nine years old." Most rational people prefer to get their spiritual inspiration from someone who wasn't a sexual predator and pervert.
Some of the low lights of the stallion's conquests include: Tabari IX:133 "Juwayriyyah was chosen by the Messenger for himself on the day of the Muraysi raid from the captives." "Muhammad married Umm, who had embraced Christianity." Tabari IX:134 "Muhammad took Zaynab but Allah did not find any fault in the relationship and ordered the marriage." Tabari IX:135 "When the Prophet scrutinized the captives on the day of Khaybar, he threw his cloak over Safayah. Thus she was his chosen one." Tabari IX:139 "The Messenger married Ghaziyyah after the news of her beauty and skill had reached him." Tabari IX:137 "Allah granted Rayhanah of the Qurayza to His Messenger as booty ." Tabari IX:137 "Mariyah, a Copt slave, was presented to the Prophet. She was given to him by Muqawqis, the ruler of Alexandria." Muhammad was despicable.
Tabari IX:138 "The Prophet married Aliyyah, a Bakr woman. He gave her gifts for divorce and left her. He also married Qutaylah, but he died before he could consummate the marriage." Tabari IX:139 "Layla approached the Prophet while his back was to the sun and clapped him on his shoulder. He asked her who it was and she replied, 'I am the daughter of one who competes with the wind. I am Layla. I have come to offer myself to you.' He replied, 'I accept.'" Layla scampered back home and shared her story with mommy and daddy. "They said, 'What a bad thing you have done! You are a self-respecting girl, but the Prophet is a womanizer.'" Now there is an understatement.
The next half-dozen pages provide an accounting of Muhammad’s slaves. For example: Tabari IX:147 "A eunuch named Mubur was presented to Muhammad along with two slave girls. One he took as a concubine, the other he gave to Haasn."
There are twenty-two pages devoted to the collection of the zakat and jizyah taxes in this summation of Islam’s formation, twenty-seven pages of accounting notes dedicated to terrorist raids, and sixteen chronicling the prophet's sexual perversity, yet there is only one paragraph devoted to scribes. Since Muhammad was illiterate, and since the Qur'an was supposed to be his miraculous gift from Allah to mankind, how is it that writing scripture received eighty-eight times less attention than money, one hundred and eight times less than terrorist raids or sixty-four times less attention than sex? Islam wasn't about saving souls. It was about power, sex, and money. Collectively, these things were 260 times more important than scripture. Something to think about if you are a Muslim.
As an interesting aside to Muhammad’s scribes, we discovered earlier that one of them, Abdallah bin Sa'd. had quite a story. He was the first person who attempted to commit Qur'anic revelations to parchment while they were still fresh in Muhammad’s mind. According to the Hadith, he became concerned that some of the phraseology didn't sound godly, so he suggested enhancements. When Muhammad accepted his edits, Abdallah rejected Islam. He recognized that the Qur'an couldn't be from God if he, a lowly scribe, could copyedit it. But the story didn't end there. Abdallah had a secret that Muhammad had to conceal. If word got out that he was just making this stuff up as he went along, he would lose everything he had struggled to gain. So... Tabari VIII:178 "When the Messenger entered Mecca he ordered that the following men should be killed even if they were under the Ka'aba. First among them was Abdallah bin Sa'd."
Al-Tabari's Hadiths go on to invest twenty-five times more ink to the pet names Muhammad ascribed to his possessions than to memorializing the Qur'an. We are regaled with the monikers of his horses, mules, camels, sheep, swords, bows, lances, coats of mail, and shields. This list climaxes with the prophet's names for himself. With his insecurities showing, he said: Tabari IX:156 "The Messenger of Allah named himself to us in various ways. He said, 'I am Muhammad the one who is praised, Ahmad, the most praiseworthy, al-Aqib, the last in succession, and al-Mahi, the obliterator.'" They go from bad to worse.
The following physical description sounds more like an ape than a man: Tabari IX:157 "The Messenger was neither tall nor short. He had a large head and beard, with big black eyes. His palms and feet were calloused; he had large joints, his face was white with a reddish tinge, his chest hair was long, and when he walked he bent forward as if he were descending a slope." Maybe Muhammad misspoke when he said that Allah transformed Jews into monkeys.
For those in the Nation of Islam trying to seduce disgruntled young black men into Islam by claiming that Muhammad was a man of color, the next Hadith is devastating. Tabari IX:158 "He was a white man."
Muhammad’s "Seal of Prophethood" was as ugly as his scripture. We have this from a pair of Abu's. Tabari IX:159 "The Messenger said, 'O Abu Zayd, come close to me and wipe my back.' I put my finger on the Seal and touched it. The Seal was a collection of hairs on his shoulders." "I asked Abu Said about the Seal which the Prophet had, and he said that it was like a protruding lump of flesh."
With the prophet's career summarized and his attributes documented, it's time we take a final look at the man who mirrored his character and mission. Only miles and years distinguished Hitler from his mentor.
Der fuhrer's methods for accomplishing his madness were identical to der prophet's. Mein Kampf:676 "Spiritual terror...men must threaten and dominate men by compulsion. Compulsion is only broken by compulsion and terror by terror." On the road to power, compulsion follows seduction. And the lever that coerces compulsion is terror. Hitler simply followed Muhammad’s path. Bukhari:V4B52N220 "Allah’s Apostle said, 'I have been made victorious with terror.'"
Mein Kampf:677 "Since our view of life will never share power with another, it cannot co-operate with the existing doctrines it condemns. It is obliged to fight by all available means until the entire world of hostile ideas collapses." Throughout the entirety of the Islamic era we have heard a singular battle cry: Bukhari:V4B53N386 "Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone." Both men envisioned an eternal battle and total submission.
Mein Kampf:677 "This corrosive fight...for the new program and new view of life demands determined fighters...and a forceful fighting organization. The recipe for a favorable result requires the formulation of a declaration of war against all existing order , and against all existing conceptions of life in general." Just like Islam, it was the Nazis against the world. The "House of Islam" forever battles the "House of War." Tabari IX:69 "He who believes in Allah and His Messenger has protected his life and possessions from us. As for those who disbelieve, we will fight them forever in the Cause of Allah. Killing them is a small matter to us."
The Nazis usurped Muhammad’s dogma. The recipe of "submit and obey" was perfect for empowering their tyrant. Mein Kampf:679 "The strength of a party lies in the disciplined obedience of the members to follow their leadership. The decisive factors are leadership and discipline. When troops battle one another, the victorious one will be that which is blindly obedient to the Superior Leader." Islam says: Ishaq:601 "The best men launch spears as if they were swords. They peer forward unweariedly. They devote their lives to their Prophet. In hand-to-hand fighting and cavalry attacks they purify themselves with the blood of the infidels. They consider that an act of piety."
It is hard to distinguish which poligious doctrine was more fixated on violence. Mein Kampf:680 "In order to lead a view of life to victory, we have to transform it into a fighting movement." Ishaq:587 "Our onslaught will not be a weak faltering affair. We shall fight as long as we live. We will fight until you turn to Islam, humbly seeking refuge. We will fight not caring whom we meet. We will fight whether we destroy ancient holdings or newly gotten gains. We have cut off every opponent's nose and ears with our swords. We have driven them violently before us at the command of Allah and Islam. We will fight until our religion is established. And we will plunder them for they must suffer disgrace."
Like Muhammad, Hitler seduced men before he coerced them. He made promises but never delivered. Mein Kampf:683 "The Party with its program of twenty-five points is unshakable." Ten of the twenty-five Nazi pillars were financial inducements, bribes if you will. Twelve were control mechanisms. Three were focused on fighting. The following Islamic concepts made Hitler's list in Mein Kampf : "abrogation," "duty," "annulment of treaties," the "confiscation of war booty," profit sharing or "distribution of spoils," the party's cut or "fifth," "conquest," "expulsion of nonbelievers," "alms" or pensions for believers, "Jewish businesses to be looted and divided," "Jewish land to become communal," a "ban on Jewish usury," "Jews to be punished by death," "the establishment of the laws" of der Fuhrer," the formation of "an army," "restrictions on journalists," and a "recasting of Christianity." Apart from time and place, der fuhrer's list was an awful lot like der prophet's.
Both men were serious about their personal views. It was their way or the highway. Mein Kampf:698 "The N.S.G.W.P. must not become a bailiff of public opinion, but its ruler. It must not be the masse.' slave, but their master!" Muhammad wasn't much of a listener either. Qur'an 47:21 "Were they to obey, showing their obedience in modest speech, after the matter of preparation for Jihad had been determined for them, it would have been better."
If the definition of propaganda is artful deceit, Hitler and Muhammad were grand masters. Mein Kampf:701 "On behalf of our view of life I will strike the weapon of reply from the enemy's hand personally." And how might der fuhrer accomplish this? Mein Kampf:702 "Skillful propaganda.... The best proof of this was furnished by the success of the propaganda, introduced by me, against the peace treaty of Versailles. I had before me a surging crowd filled with most sacred indignation and utter wrath. A great lie had been torn out of the brains and hearts of a multitude, and in its stead, a truth had been implanted.... In this meeting I became familiar with the pathos and the gestures which mesmerizing a thousand people demands." Islam and Nazism share an unhealthy trait, the willingness to link "sacred" to "wrath." And neither can be trusted as they are willing to abrogate treaties which they do not like. Qur'an 9:3 "And a declaration from Allah and His Messenger to all mankind: 'Allah is free from all treaty obligations with non-Muslims and so is His Messenger."
Confirming the role of seductive verbal expression in achieving victory, der fuhrer shared: Mein Kampf:704 "The emphasis was put on the spoken word because only it is in a position to bring about great changes for general psychological reasons. Enormous world revolutionary events have not been brought about by the written word, but by the spoken word." Mein Kampf:704 "The agitatory activity of speech is bound to have mass influence." Hitler went on to say that spoken words were like pictures because they communicate more vividly and faster than text. His mentor never allowed his words to be written or read, only spoken. And that's because: Bukhari:V6B60N662 "Allah’s Apostle said, 'Some eloquent speech is as effective as magic.'" Bukhari:V9B87N127 "The Prophet said, 'I have been given the keys of eloquent speech and given victory with terror so the treasures of the earth were given to me.'"
Expounding upon the merits of Muhammad’s situational scriptures, der fuhrer said, Mein Kampf:706 "The great speaker senses the words that he needs to use in order to impassion his audience. If he errs he has the opportunity for correction. He can read his listener.' expressions to see if they understand, and can repeat his message until he has convinced them of the correctness of what he has said." This reminds me of the 8th surah in which Muhammad changed his presentation of the power of Islamic terror on the fly. When his militants appeared displeased with Allah’s proclamation, Muhammad corrected the error and lessened the odds. Ishaq:326 "Abdullah told me that when this verse came down it was a shock to the Muslims who took it hard. They were afraid, as the odds were too great. So Allah relieved them and cancelled the verse with another: 'Now has Allah relieved you and He knows that there is a weakness among you, so if there are 100 they shall vanquish 200.'" The 66th verse corrected the 65th. Instant abrogation. Just add grumbling.
Der fuhrer also explained why an oral recital had to be as repetitive as the Qur'an - a word which means "to recite." Mein Kampf:706 "The great speaker will repeat his message so often, with so many examples, he will overcome objections and refute them before they are even raised." While the Mecca surahs were fixated on pain and punishment, with the vast majority of the 1,000 repetitions occurring therein, the Medina themes were no less repetitive. They bellowed: submit, obey, perform, pay, and fight.
Hitler and Muhammad learned that their demonic message was most effective when it was revealed in the darkness of night. Mein Kampf:710 "I was astonished by how much better my message was received at night.... It’s a mysterious magic that allows an encroachment upon man’s free will. In the evening they succumb more easily to the dominating force of a stronger will. The domineering apostolic nature weakens their resistance." Islam’s apostle used the same psychology to weaken men's resistance: Qur'an 73:1 "Keep watch all the night except a little, reciting the Qur'an as it ought to be recited in slow, measured rhythmic tones. We will soon entrust you with Our weighty Word. Surely the night is the most devout way when the soul is most receptive and the words are the most telling." The most telling line, "magic allows an encroachment upon man’s free will," exposes the dark spirit's agenda. This is why Islam and Nazism are fatalistic and why they are devoted to submission and obedience. If deceit encroaches on man’s free will, we lose our ability to choose Yahweh and to accept his gift of eternal life. When we lose our free will, we lose the ability to love and to know God. When we lose the ability to choose, we die. It isn't a coincidence that history's least-free poligious communities have succumbed to doctrines of submission. Death and destruction was not only predictable, it was a predetermined consequence.
Hitler, like his mentor, despised scribes. Mein Kampf:712 "The average sparrow brain of the scribbler produces intellectual babble." Muhammad dispensed with the verbal assault. He simply killed them.
Mein Kampf:715 "The meeting is necessary if only because new adherents of a new movement feel lonely and are easily seized with the fear of being alone. Brought together they sense a greater community.... They are carried away by the powerful effect of the suggestive intoxication and enthusiasm of the others. The crowd confirms the correctness of the new doctrine in his mind and removes doubt. He then succumbs to the magic seductive influence of the meeting." Mein Kampf:717 "God be praised and thanked that unspoilt people avoid bourgeois mass meetings as the Devil avoids holy water." Togetherness can be as seductive as it is coercive. It is the essence of mob mentality. An evil person with a bad idea can be parlayed into an eruption of uncontrollable rage. Ishaq:580 "Our strong warriors obey his orders to the letter. By us Allah’s religion is undeniably strong. You would think when our horses gallop with bits in their mouths that the sounds of demons are among them. The day we trod down the unbelievers, there was no deviation or turning from the Apostle's order. During the battle the people heard our exhortations to fight and the smashing of skulls by swords that sent heads flying. We severed necks with a warrior's blow. Often we have left the slain cut to pieces and a widow crying 'ala.' over her mutilated husband." The study of Islam, like Nazism, is an exposé on gang mentality. Uncorrupted by Islam, or left free to choose, few if any Arabs would have been capable of perpetrating such horrific deeds. Yet as part of Muhammad’s gang of ghouls, they fed off each other's rage.
Terror and piracy became good because everyone they knew was a terrorizing pirate. This is why Christianity is personal - not collective. The Greek word ekklesia that we errantly translate "Church" really means "a calling out."
Then sounding like Muhammad in Mecca, der fuhrer preached these words in Munich, Mein Kampf:715 "The man who is the first representative of a new doctrine is exposed to serious oppression and urgently needs the strengthening that lies in the conviction of being a fighter in an embracing body." Muhammad found his soul mates in Medina. Ishaq:596 "You came to us discredited, when your message was rejected and we believed you. You were forsaken and deserted and we assisted you. You were a fugitive and we took you in, sheltering you. You were poor and in need and we comforted you."
Mein Kampf:720 "It was important to introduce blind discipline into our meetings and to safeguard the authority of the leader. The brutal recklessness of our guards were able to thwart the enemy's hecklers." Speaking as if he were Muhammad, Hitler said, Mein Kampf:726 "Anyone who provoked us was thrown out ruthlessly. We would not tolerate any provocation" Mein Kampf:728 "Before they could finish a sentence they would find themselves thrown outside the hall." It was no different in Muhammad’s day. Ishaq:246 "Hypocrites used to assemble in the mosque and listen to the stories of the Muslims and laugh and scoff at their religion. So Muhammad ordered that they should be ejected. They were thrown out with great violence. Abu went to Amr, took his foot and dragged him out of the mosque. Another Muslim slapped a man’s face while dragging him forcefully, knocking him down. One was pulled violently by his hair. 'Don't come near the Apostle's mosque again, for you are unclean.'" Even today, they fear truth.
Der fuhrer and der prophet had security detachments. Hitler called the first of these "Storm Troops." Mein Kampf:729 "I had a protective detachment as a supervision service. They were all young Party comrades who were instructed and trained to the effect that terror can be broken only by terror. By fighting for our idea, they protected me with their last drop of blood. They were saturated with the doctrine. We found that the best weapon of defense was the attack. We became known not as a debating club but as a fighting community. My boys shined when I made clear to them the necessity of their mission, assuring them again and again that all the wisdom in the world will remain futile if force does not enter its service, defending and protecting it. The Goddess of Peace can only march side by side with the God of War."
Muhammad’s thugs weren't quite as articulate, but they were no less loyal. Ishaq:580 "We helped Allah’s Apostle, angry on his account, with a thousand warriors. We carried his flag on the end of our lances. We were his helpers, protecting his banner in deadly combat. We dyed it with blood, for that was its color. We were the Prophet's right arm in Islam. We were his bodyguards before other troops served him. We helped him against his opponents. Allah richly rewarded that fine Prophet Muhammad."
Like the good Muslims who left their homes to fight jihad for Muhammad, Hitler had helpers too: Mein Kampf:730 "And how these boys stood up! Like a swarm of hornets they stormed upon the mockers at our meeting incurring wounds and making sacrifices so that they made a path for the holy mission of our movement." Mein Kampf:747 "The boys of the Storm Troop performed their duty. They attacked like wolves.... Our opponents learned a lesson they will never forget." This is reminiscent of the 8th surah which says: "Inflict upon them such a defeat as will be a lesson for others, that they may be warned." And the Hadith which substituted one pest for another. Ishaq:564 "The Muslims stole our goods and divided them. Their spears pierced us not once but twice. Their squadrons came at us like a swarm of locusts. Were it not for the religion of Muhammad’s people, their cavalry would never have attacked us."
Hitler dedicates a number of pages to his personal involvement in choosing the Nazi colors (black and red, symbolizing deceit and blood) and his swastika. Der fuhrer's fixation on his flag was no different than the prophet's fixation on his war banners which we were told were white, black, and blood red. Mein Kampf:733 "They became a symbol for the fight of the future.... It had the effect of a flaming torch." Just as Muhammad had usurped the concept of war banners from his pagan ancestor Qusayy, Hitler recycled an old tradition. Mein Kampf:736 "The swastika had been used as a symbol of the Germanic religion by folkish groups in primitive cults." Even in the details, they were indistinguishable.
This next passage encapsulates Muhammad’s reason for founding Islam. Mein Kampf:752 "Destiny chooses the Man and Destiny gives him the final victory. Dissatisfied with the religious life of his people, he longs for a renovation. Based upon his inspiration he is called upon to present a solution for this religious distress, appearing like a prophet of a new doctrine and as a fighter against the existing ones." There is no more effective means to rule people than to claim that you are called to be "god's" prophet, and then to mix your poison with the passion of a pugilist. Ishaq:530 "Get out of his way, you infidel unbelievers. Every good thing goes with His Apostle. O Lord, I believe in his word. I know Allah’s . truth in accepting it. We will fight you about its interpretations as we have fought you about its revelation with strokes that will remove heads from shoulders and make enemies of friends."
If you were to replace Nature with Allah, this Hitlerism could be Qur'anic. Mein Kampf:752 "The strongest man is chosen for fulfilling the great mission. One Man is the One who is exclusively called upon." Mein Kampf:753 "They have the purest faith in their own mission, they consider themselves obliged to go their own way without considering others. Nature Herself, in Her inexorable logic, makes the decision by prompting fights and by leading that movement to the goal that has been chosen by the clearest, shortest, and surest way." Qur'an 59:6 "Allah gives his Messenger Lordship and Power over whomever He wills." Qur'an 49:7 "And know that among you is Allah’s Messenger: were he to follow your (wishes), you would fall into misfortune...."
By promising "Valhalla," a seductive, pagan, and hedonistic "paradise" to those who sacrificed their lives for the "cause," the second tyrant mirrored the first. Mein Kampf:768 "It is certain that each hero who comes forward voluntarily, and dies the sacred death of martyrdom climbs the steps to Valhalla." This is no different than: Qur'an 4:74 "Let those who fight in the Cause of Allah sell the life of this world for the hereafter. To him who fights in the Cause of Allah, whether he is slain or gets victory - soon shall We give him a great reward."
Speaking of the Germans who rejected him, Hitler's never-ending argument replicates Muhammad’s: Mein Kampf:768 "They are 'scum.' 'rabble, deserters, and pimps who shunned the light.' 'hyenas.' 'freeloaders.' 'thieves, and duty shirkers.' 'traitors,' and an 'undisciplined gang of looters, criminals, and evil rabble.'"
But alas, even Hitler had to outmaneuver and threaten the peaceful hypocrites. Mein Kampf:756 "Some people merely pretend that they are fighting for the same goal, but they do not honestly place themselves into the ranks of our movement." Qur'an 8:5 "Your Lord ordered you out of your homes to fight for the true cause even though some Muslims disliked it, and were averse to fighting. They argued with you concerning this matter even after it was made clear to them. It was as if they were being driven to their death."
Der fuhrer was as humble as der prophet. Mein Kampf:763 "One must never forget that everything that is actually great in this world has not been fought for and won by coalitions, but always by the success of One Individual victor. The religious State will never be created by compromise but only by the steel-hard willpower of one sole movement which has struggled its way against all others." Qur'an 48:1 "Verily We have granted you (Muhammad) a splendid Victory." Qur'an 48:8 "We have truly sent you (Muhammad) as a witness, as a bringer of Good News, and as a Warner: In order that you (men) may believe in Allah and His Messenger, that you may assist him and honor him, and celebrate His praise morning and evening."
Islam and Nazism seduced a sufficient number of men to become popular enough to build a coercive militant force. Both usurped pagan traditions to condition adherents and then established absolute authority over them. Mein Kampf:765 "If popularity and force unite then authority can be established more solidly based upon tradition. When popularity, force, and tradition combine, authority becomes unshakable." This is Islam in a nutshell.
Writing words that would come to haunt the world fifteen and then again seventy-seven years after they were scribed by Hitler's hand, we discover: Mein Kampf:787 "Terror which is derived from a religion can never be broken by a formal State power. It will only succumb to a new view of life that proceeds with equal boldness and determination. The State may for centuries apply the strongest means of power against a terror by which it is threatened, but in the end it will be powerless and will succumb." Hitler and Muhammad were unaware of a power stronger than hate, and of a tool more effective than terror. That force is love and its implement is truth. And that is how we must fight "terror which is derived from a religion." We must love the victims of Islam enough to free them from deceit. By emancipating mankind from Muhammad’s legacy we free ourselves from its scourge.
But Hitler was right in a way. Nations like America are unable to break the back of religious terror. We are unwilling to confront a religion. But by not understanding the source of the terrorist.' rage, we eliminate them far more slowly than the religotic manufactures new ones. And even if we were to shed our ignorance, conventional defensive and offensive military tactics are counterproductive. Offensively, massive armaments and air superiority only prevail against conventional forces. Terrorists scatter, lying in wait to strike another day. And defensively, the freedoms we usurp from our citizens under the guise of "Homeland Security" only serve to create the totalitarian climate in which religious terrorists thrive.
While there is good news, I'm afraid it may be too late. To combat poligious terror we don't have to become like them, as Hitler attests. All we have to do is come to understand the deceit that drives men to such madness. Collectively, if we were to see Muhammad and his terrorist dogma Islam as we now see Hitler and Nazism, we would win the war on terror by freeing Muslims from Islam. Light extinguishes darkness, and courageous, sacrificial love overwhelms fear, hate, and terror.
While Hitler's argument was wrong, it remains seductive. A time will come, according to Bible prophets, in which America and Europe will tire of their government.' inability to thwart the continued onslaught of Islamic terror. They will be tempted, as were 1930s Germans, to employ the services of a similarly-minded tyrant to protect them. Like Hitler, this evil man will rise to prominence promising "peace." But once empowered, he'll unleash hell's fury - literally. The religotic he'll deploy will be as demonic as Nazism and Islam. Mein Kampf:981 "To end this eternal shame, people will prefer to accept the terror of the moment rather than bear an endless terror any longer."
Hitler went on to plagiarize two of Allah’s favorite words. Mein Kampf:798 "What we need is not one hundred daring plotters, but many hundreds of thousands of fanatical fighters for our view of life." Mein Kampf:801 "Give the German nation six million bodies, faultlessly trained, all of them glowing with passion for the highest spirit of attack, and we will have an army." Qur'an 47:4 "Therefore, when you clash with the unbelieving Infidels in battle, strike them and overpower them. At length, when you have thoroughly subdued them, make them prisoners in bondage until the war lays down its burdens. Thus are you commanded. He lets you fight in order to test you. But those who are slain in Allah’s Cause will never have their deeds go to waste." Qur'an 47:31 "We shall try you until We know those among you who are the fighters; and We shall try your reported mettle." Qur'an 47:33 "Believers, obey Allah, and obey the Messenger! Those who disbelieve and hinder men from the Cause of Allah , He will not pardon. Do not falter; become faint-hearted, or weak-kneed, crying for peace. You have the upper hand."
Muhammad’s contemporaries saw him as a lying thief and a murdering bandit. We know this because their criticisms are chronicled in the Qur'an. Hitler was not immune. His contemporaries: Mein Kampf:807 "Lovingly showered upon us the pet names: 'murderers, bandits, robbers, and criminals.' But the S.A. maintained perfect order...daring to smash the skulls in of those who resisted." The translators of Mein Kampf provided the grim details. During the formation period of Nazism (1923-1931): "The Hitlerites killed 323 Marxists and seriously wounded 750. Other Nazi rivals lost 48 men. The perpetrators of Mein Kampf suffered 86 dead and 25 wounded." But as with the initial Islamic terrorist raids perpetrated by Muhammad, one murder quickly led to another. Death became an avalanche. Scores of rotting corpses became hundreds, then thousands, then millions.
Returning to one of der prophet's favorite themes, der fuhrer protests: Mein Kampf:827 "Systematically, Jewish parasites ravish our innocent young blonde girls and thus destroy the Aryan race. Yet both Christian denominations disregard the desecration and annihilation of the noble and unique race God gave the earth. It is not important whether Protestants vanquish Catholics or Catholics vanquish Protestants, but whether Aryans survive. Any who reject his work thereby declares war on the Lord's creation and upon his divine will." Ishaq:262 "Some Muslims remained friends with the Jews, so Allah sent down a Qur'an forbidding them to take Jews as friends. From their mouths hatred has already shown itself and what they conceal is worse." Qur'an 2:59 "We sent a plague upon the Jews from heaven, for their evil-doing." Qur'an 5:82 "You will find the Jews and disbelievers the most vehement in hatred for the Muslims."
Mein Kampf:845 "Nazism must claim the right to force its principles on the whole and educate everyone about its ideas and thoughts without regard to previous boundaries." This is an order to impose Nazism on the world and then to indoctrinate the victims. Bukhari:V4B52N196 "Allah’s Apostle said, 'I have been ordered to fight the people till they say, "None has the right to be worshipped but Allah."'"
Speaking immodestly of how he created his religotic, Hitler shares some extremely relevant insights: Mein Kampf:848 "Great theorists are only in the rarest cases great organizers. The Greatness of the program-maker lies in the recognition and in the establishment of abstractly correct rules, while the organizer has to be a psychologist. He has to take man as he is, and thus must know him. He must not over evaluate him. He must try to account for his weakness and bestial nature so that the program becomes a strong, constant force, suitable for carrying an idea and paving its way to success." Hitler's words bind him to Muhammad and separate both men from Moses and Yahshua. Islam and Nazism see man as lowly and replaceable. They appeal to man’s weakness and bestial nature. They seduce men into becoming a militant force for the benefit of the program-maker. Hitler was even suggesting that Islam was made dimwitted and bestial on purpose. It was as dumb and visceral as the men it was perpetrated upon.
The reason the word "religion" can't be found in the Old Covenant and is only used negatively in the Renewed Covenant is that Judeo-Christianity is not a religion, a movement, a cause, a mission, or a program. It’s a relationship that focuses on the spirit, not the flesh.
Mein Kampf:848 "Rarely is a great theorist a great leader. More usually he is an agitator who shows the ability of imparting an idea to the masses as a psychologist and demagogue. For to lead means to be able to move the masses." While I wouldn't go so far as to say that Muhammad was a great theorist, leader, or psychologist, he was certainly an agitator and demagogue. And two out of five was sufficient to "move the masses."
Hitler glorified himself using similar terms to those used by Islamic apologists to elevate Muhammad’s status. Mein Kampf:849 "The combination of the theorist , organizer , and leader in one person is the rarest thing to be found on this globe. This combination makes the Great Man."
By calling his message "propaganda," Hitler was being more honest with his audience than was Muhammad. Both knew that they were lying; one had the courtesy to tell us. Mein Kampf:851 "The first task of propaganda is the winning of people for the future organization . The first task of the organization is the winning of people for the continuation of propaganda. The second task of propaganda is the destruction of existing doctrines . The second task of the organization must be the fight for power so that by it will achieve the final success of the doctrine ." Tabari IX:82 "The Messenger sent Khalid with an army of 400 and ordered him to invite people to Islam before he fought them. If they were to respond and submit, he was to teach them the Book of Allah, the Sunnah of His Prophet, and the requirements of Islam. If they should decline, then he was to fight them." Ishaq:245 "The Apostle used to say, 'Their religion will never march with ours.'"
Mein Kampf:851 "The most striking success of the revolution of a view of life will always be won whenever the new view of life is taught to all people, and if necessary, is forced upon them." Neville Chamberlain gave this man the high ground of Czechoslovakia thinking that it would satiate his cravings. That proved as fatal as George Bush's "Road Map to Peace," in which he proposed to give the high ground of Israel to the Muslims. One doctrine has, and the other doctrine will, force its view of life on everyone within its reach. Tabari IX:86 "Give the people the good news of Paradise and the way to attain it. Warn them of the Hell-Fire and the way to earn it. Teach them the rites of the hajj.... He orders you to offer prayer at the appropriate times with proper bowing and humility.... He orders you to give one fifth of Allah’s booty and pay the zakat tax. It is enjoined on the faithful from their land and property." Qur'an 8:39 "Fight them until the only religion is Islam." When will we learn to read the words on the page? When will we come to understand that tolerating evil leads to disaster?
Islam and Nazism are intolerant, dictatorial fighting machines. Mein Kampf:852 "The highest task of the organization is to see to it that no kind of internal disagreements among the members of the movement weaken the work of the movement. The spirit of determined aggression must not die out. It must be constantly renewed and fortified. It must never lose its fighting force and must propagate the idea with determination and attack." Mein Kampf:855 "The more radical and inciting my propaganda was, the more it frightened off the weaklings and prevented them from pushing into the nucleus of our organization." Hitler would have loved this poem: Ishaq:572 "Muhammad is the man, an Apostle of my Lord who errs not. Any who would rival him must fail. Evil was the state of our enemy so they lost the day. We came upon them like lions from the thickets. The armies of Allah came openly, flying at them in rage, so they could not get away. We destroyed them and forced them to surrender. In the former days there was no battle like this; their blood flowed freely. We slew them and left them in the dust. Those who escaped were choked with terror. A multitude of them were slain. This is Allah’s war in which those who do not accept Islam will have no chance."
Mein Kampf:856 "Folkish visionaries procure leadership for themselves and collapse the plots that swirl around them. I was unanimously given the entire leadership of the movement. New articles were accepted which entrusted me with full responsibility and this proved its value in the most blissful manner," Mein Kampf:858 "All collaborators were made subordinate to me." Muslim:C22B20N4604 "We used to take oath to the Messenger of Allah that we would listen to and obey his orders. He would tell us to say in the oath: As far as it lies in my power." Qur'an 48:10 "Verily those who swear allegiance to you (Muhammad), indeed swear their allegiance to Allah."
Nazism was as peaceful as Islam. Mein Kampf:891 "To forge the sword is the task of leadership. The mission is to seek comrades in arms." Mein Kampf:892 "The correct road is to strengthen our power by winning new soil and territory." Mein Kampf:950 "We Nazis say: 'The right to soil and territory is a duty for a great nation must extend its boundaries." The clues in Mein Kampf that the Nazis were intent on world conquest were no less vague than those found in the Qur'an. Mein Kampf:953 "The German needs only to be given land by the sword." Bukhari:V4B52N288 "Expel disbelievers from the Arabian Peninsula.'" Qur'an 2:191 "Slay them wherever you find and catch them, and drive them out from where they have turned you out; for persecution and oppression are worse than slaughter." Qur'an 33:25 "Allah drove the disbelievers back...and helped the believers in battle.... He terrorized the People of the Book so that you killed some and made many captive. He made you inherit their lands, their homes, and their wealth. He gave you a country you had not traversed before."
Chamberlain wasn't the only fool. Stalin also signed a "peace treaty" with Hitler years after Mein Kampf was written. Mein Kampf:959 "The conclusion of a treaty with Russia embodies the declaration of the next war." Der fuhrer, like der prophet, enjoyed projecting his faults on his foes. "We must never forget that the rulers of present-day Russia are common bloodstained criminals, the scum of humanity. They butchered and rooted out millions of leading intellectuals with savagery. They have imposed the most frightful regime of tyranny of all time. The Marxist and their Jewish comrades combine bestial horror and an inconceivable gift for lying. They intend to impose bloody oppression on the whole world. One does not conclude a treaty with someone whose sole interest is destruction." The only difference between Hitler and Muhammad in the application of this strategy was, Hitler was right.
Der Fuhrer went on to share: "The struggle against the Jewish Marxist conquest of the world requires a clear attitude towards Soviet Russia. You cannot drive out the Devil with Beelzebub ." This is similar to Lucifer impersonating Gabriel while speaking for Allah and condemning Satan.
Mein Kampf:920 "Peace treaties whose demands are a scourge to a people, frequently beat the first drum roll for a coming rebellion. The boundless extortion and shameful abasement are a means of whipping up national passions to the boiling point. The propagandistic utilization of these sadistic atrocities can remove indifference and raise indignation to the most blazing anger! Every point should be burned into the brain and heart of men until sixty million share the same hate, causing a sea of flames out of whose glow a steely will arises and the cry: 'We want more arms.' Yes, a peace treaty could do that. It becomes the greatest propaganda weapon for re-arousing the dormant spirits of a cause." Mein Kampf:920 "We must reimplant in the people the spirit of proud self-respect, manly defiance, and wrathful hate." The first Muslims didn't take kindly to peace treaties either. Tabari VIII:87/Ishaq:505 "The Companions of the Prophet had set out not doubting that they would conquer, because of a vision Muhammad had seen. Therefore, when they saw the negotiations for peace, the retreat, and the obligations the Messenger agreed to - the Muslims felt so grieved about it that they were close to despair. Some were depressed to the point of death." So... Qur'an 9:3 "An announcement from Allah and His Messenger to the people assembled on the day of the Great Pilgrimage, that Allah and His Messenger dissolve treaty obligations with the Pagans." And then... Qur'an 9:5 "Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, torture them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war."
Telling us how Nazi and Islamic tyrannies would use land-for-peace road-maps to propagate their fury and lead the world to war, der fuhrer explained: Mein Kampf:921 "Everything, beginning with the child's primer down to the last newspaper, every theater and every picture, every billboard and every wall, must be placed at the service of this single great mission, until the prayer of fear of our patriots cry, 'Lord deliver us.' The burning plea must come from even the smallest child: 'Almighty God, bless our arms! Lord, bless our battle!" The Muslims also had such a "prayer." Bukhari:V5B59N512 "The Prophet offered the Prayer of Fear when it was still dark and said, 'Allahu-Akbar! Khaybar is destroyed, for whenever we approach a hostile nation to fight, then evil will be the morning for those who have been warned.' The inhabitants came out running. The Prophet had their men killed, their children and women taken as captives." Bukhari:V5B59N516 "When Allah’s Apostle fought or raided people we raised our voices saying, 'Allahu-Akbar! Allahu-Akbar! None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.'"
And they went off to wage holy war: Mein Kampf:932 "May Reason be our leader, The sacred duty to act gives us determination, and our highest Protector remains our faith." Mein Kampf:925 "We may suffer many bitter woes but this isn't grounds for abandoning Reason with squabbling instead of standing up with a concentrated force against the enemy." Qur'an 8:60 "And make ready against the infidels all of the power you can, including steeds of war to threaten the enemy of Allah and your enemy. And whatever you spend in Allah’s Cause shall be repaid unto you." Qur'an 61:14 "O Muslims! Be helpers of Allah...We gave power to those who believed against their enemies, and they became the ones that prevailed." Ishaq:441 "A sharp sword in the hand of a brave man kills his adversary."
Muhammad called his dark spirit a "Protector," too, even when his armed force was preparing to swoop down, terrorize, and plunder innocents. Ishaq:510 "When the Apostle looked down he said, 'O Allah, Lord of the heavens and what they overshadow, and Lord of the Devils and what into error they throw, and Lord of the winds and what they winnow, we ask Thee for the booty of this town and its people. We take refuge in Thee from its evil and the evil of its people. Forward in the name of Allah.' He used to say this of every town he raided."
Mein Kampf ends as it begins, by praising martyrs, and wrapping overtly religious themes around their death. Mein Kampf:993 "At the end of this volume I want to bring before the eyes of our adherents and of the crusaders for our doctrine those eighteen heroes to whom I dedicated the first volume of my work, as those heroes who consciously sacrificed themselves for all of us. They must always recall the fulfillment of duty, a duty which they fulfilled with the best faith despite the consequences. I want to reckon men who by words, thoughts, and deeds dedicated their lives to the awakening of our nation. I quote from Eckard's poem: 'Father in Heaven, resolved to the death, bow we before Thee. Does any other people follow thine awful command more loyally than do we Germans? Then Eternal One, send us the victory, Mighty with Fate. Thou smilest with joy at our holy crusade."
I could give you any of a thousand Qur'an and Hadith quotes to match this, but instead, I'd like you to contemplate the overwhelming similarity of the message, the motivation, and the means Hitler and Muhammad used to attack mankind. Then consider the consequence of ignoring, or even tolerating, Hitler's "holy crusade" during the fifteen years between the time he wrote it and the time he enacted it.
If we behave similarly today, now that Muhammad’s mantra has been revealed, a billion people will remain enslaved by Islam. And within a quarter century, a quarter of earth's people will die because of it.
