City can bar 'family
Flier with no
mention of homosexuality deemed 'homophobic'
federal court ruled the city of Oakland had a right to bar two
employees from posting a flier promoting traditional family values on
an office bulletin board.
Regina Rederford and Robin Christy posted the flier in response to an
e-mail to city employees announcing formation of a gay and lesbian
employee association. The two responded with a promotion of their own
-- the start of an informal group that respects "the natural family,
marriage and family values."
supervisors Robert Bobb, then city manager, and Joyce Hicks, then
deputy director of the Community and Economic Development Agency,
ordered removal of the flier, stating it contained "statements of a
homophobic nature" and promoted "sexual-orientation-based harassment,"
even though it made no mention of homosexuality.
A July 2003
lawsuit by Rederford and Christy claimed the city's anti-discrimination
policy "promotes homosexuality" and "openly denounces
District Court Judge Vaughn Walker dismissed the case Tuesday, ruling
the two women did not have their First Amendment rights violated.
Ackerman, whose public-interest law firm Lively and Ackerman represents
the two women, said he will fight the case all the way to the U.S.
that an employee cannot mention the natural family in the workplace is
absurd," he told WorldNetDaily. "Cities should not be
run by neo-fascist homosexual advocates. This ruling allows just that."
Attorney John Russo said in a statement the city "will fight vigorously
to defend the policies and practices which protect employees from any
form of discrimination."
said the case is significant, because a decision against the employees
could silence debate about homosexuality and related
issues in the state of California.
flier in question was posted Jan. 3, 2003, on an employee bulletin
board where a variety of political and sexually oriented causes are
promoted. Titled, "Preserve Our Workplace With Integrity," the entire
News Employee Associations is a forum for people of Faith to express
their views on the contemporary issues of the day. With respect for the

a Feb. 20 memo announcing a newly revised workplace anti-discrimination
policy, Hicks noted recent incidents of employees "inappropriately
posting materials" in violation of that policy.
she wrote according to a copy obtained by WND, "flyers were placed in
public view which contained statements of a homophobic nature and were
determined to promote sexual orientation-based harassment."
complaint charges Hicks and Bobb violated their clients' constitutional
right to "pray, associate, communicate religious ideas, and worship"
according to the U.S. Constitution and the laws and regulations of the
city of Oakland.

within 10 days, but expects the case to be settled by the Supreme

ruling to mean that Christianity has no place in our society and should
be subject to punishment."

stalked on Islamic website
- Murdered New
Jersey man among several tracked by Muslims
The New Jersey
man brutally murdered with his family was just one of a number of
Christians systematically tracked by a radical Islamic website because
they debate Muslims on the popular Internet chat service PalTalk.com.
The password-protected Arabic website www.barsomyat.com, includes the

from Jersey City, N.J., who was found Jan. 14 with his wife and two
daughters, bound and gagged with their throats slashed, the New York

The Islamic website's banner displays lamb with its throat being slit
and a crucifix crossed out by a violent red "X." The main heading, in
Arabic, says "Christians: Revealing the Truth Behind Our Belief."
Authorities have not determined whether the Armanious family's murder
is tied to Islamic radicals, but the Sun says barsomyat.com users
expressed delight in the deaths.
One post, with a photograph of Armanious and his wife, said, "This is a
picture of the filthy dog, curser of Muhammad, and a photo of his
filthy wife, curser of Muhammad. They got what they deserved for their
actions in America."
The Islamic website has at least seven collections of photographs of
Christians who post on PalTalk and about 40 related discussion threads.
One post is about a Christian man whose computer apparently was hacked
to obtain his photograph. It includes his PalTalk name, real name and
the city where he lives in Lebanon, the Sun reported.
Another entry, with photographs of four Christians, says it has
postponed publishing information "because there is a lot more to be
revealed when the time is right."
Islam researcher and writer Robert Spencer, moderator of the weblog
JihadWatch.com, told the New York paper he sees barsomyat.com as a
"prime example" of how Islamic extremists can utilize technology to
attempt to bring Islamic religious law to the West.
"We saw in the Theo van Gogh murders that some Muslims will take these
kinds of matters into their own hands," Spencer said, referring to the
murdered Dutch filmmaker. "The Internet makes it easier for them to do
so by disseminating this kind of information. You could imagine 15
years ago how hard it would be for people to get this much information
on people who they believe should be killed."

Illinois' forced hiring of 'gays'

amendment to the Illinois Human Rights Act, extending
anti-discrimination protection on the basis of sexual orientation, was
pushed vigorously in the legislature by the state chapter of the
American Civil Liberties Union.
The law, signed by Gov. Rod Blagojevich last week, allows no exemptions
for people or institutions with religious convictions against sodomy,
cross-dressing, adultery, sex changes, pornography, incest, group sex
or even bestiality.
Some are suggesting the amendment is setting up a clash with the First
Amendment protections of religious freedom.

many years, was the focus of a major push by the ACLU of Illinois in
2004, according to the organization's annual report (pdf file). It says

- New measure
requires religious groups to hire homosexuals
churches are protesting a new state law that bars them from
"discriminating" against homosexuals, contending it robs Christians of
their First Amendment freedoms.
Gov. Rod Blagojevich signed the bill into law yesterday amid a
demonstration led by the Illinois Family Institute, or IFI, a
non-profit group affiliated with Focus on the Family, Family Research
Council and Alliance Defense Fund.
The measure adds "sexual orientation" to the state law that bars
discrimination based on race, religion and similar traits in areas such
as jobs and housing.
The bill was signed to loud cheers and a standing ovation from about
150 homosexual-rights supporters who see it as a human-rights issue.
"This legislation sends a clear message that we will not allow our
citizens to be discriminated against," Blagojevich said in a statement.
"What we're doing today is older than scripture: Love thy neighbor,"

new anti-discrimination rule in California
A decision to
expand anti-discrimination laws in the San Francisco Bay area is
drawing fire from pro-family groups who say it will lead to conflicts
between transgendered people and the public at large.
At a heated hearing in Oakland yesterday, the Alameda County Board of
Supervisors voted unanimously to approve a resolution prohibiting
discrimination based on a person's "gender identity."
It applies to Alameda County employment, services and facilities,
according to Bay City News.
The measure is being blasted by the likes of Randy Thomasson, president
of the Campaign for Children and Families, who says the action will
"force women and girls to endure transsexual men entering and using
women's restrooms on county-owned property, including parks and
libraries where children gather. The resolution also forces county
employees and contractors to agree with transsexuality and sex changes,
or suffer retribution if they complain or resist."
Thomasson says there may be a religious freedom lawsuit brewing to try
to reverse what he calls an immoral resolution. He also is telling the
public to contact the board in Alameda to express outrage over the

pastor’s sermons on abortion & homosexuality
Feb 2, 2005
VERNON, Ill. (BP)--Nov. 23, 2004, started out like any other normal
morning for Randy Steele, senior pastor at Southwest Christian Church
in Mount Vernon, Ill., a town about 80 miles southeast of St. Louis.
One of the longtime members of his church was on her deathbed and he
planned to spend the day consoling her family. Then the phone rang.
It was the FBI.
Steele said they wanted to meet with him personally. After agreeing to
a time later that same afternoon, he said his first thoughts turned to
“I was wondering what somebody in my church
might have done,” Steele said. “So I was in a lot of prayer asking God
to give me the right words to say.”
When two FBI
agents arrived at the church, Steele said they traded small talk for a
few minutes before the suspense got to him and he asked about the
nature of their visit.
Their answer stunned him.
“One guy opened a file,” Steele said. “And he said, ‘This is pertaining
to a sermon that you preached on Memorial Day.’”
Memorial Day 2004, Steele was in the middle of preaching a sermon
series he called “Life Issues” dealing with controversial cultural
issues from a biblical perspective. One such sermon was about abortion
and Steele chose Memorial Day to preach about it.
“I shared the
number of people who have died in wars versus the number who had died
through ‘legal’ abortion since 1973,” Steele said. “I stated that we
are in a different type of war that is being fought under the
'presupposition of freedom.’”
Steele said that he went on to
name an abortion clinic in Granite City, Ill., a city just outside St.
Louis, and pointed out that they perform as many as 45 abortions per
Somebody in the church that day apparently misunderstood
Steele’s “different type of war” comment to mean that he was actually
calling his congregation to a physical war against abortion clinics, so
he or she placed an anonymous phone call to the FBI.
The informant allegedly told the FBI
that in addition to Steele calling for a war against abortion clinics,
he also said he was willing to go to jail over such a cause.
said that he had spoken about his willingness to go to jail, but that
he made those remarks in a different sermon that dealt with homosexuality
from the same sermon series.
“I had mentioned a pastor in Canada who had been arrested for speaking
in his church,” Steele said. The pastor said he went on to tell his
congregation that “if speaking the truth means that we go to jail, then
by golly, that’s where I'm going to be and I’m going to save you a seat
next to me.”
“That was the major gist of why [the FBI] felt like
they could come here and look through my sermons,” Steele said.
Marshall Stone, FBI supervisory special agent and
media coordinator for the Springfield (Ill.) division of the FBI,
was unwilling to speak specifically about the FBI’s
visit to Southwest Christian Church, but when asked to speak in general
terms about whether the FBI
normally looks through pastors’ sermons after receiving anonymous tips
about them being a possible danger, he did offer a few comments.
don't know that there’s any case where we would say, ‘This is
typical,’” Stone said. “Each complaint, each investigation is followed
up based upon facts and specific circumstances of that complaint,
allegation or investigation.”
Since there aren’t any typical cases, Stone was asked if FBI
agents would make a determination on site regarding whether to examine
a pastor’s sermons. He responded in the affirmative.
Steele said that after the two FBI
agents examined his two sermons in question, they realized he was not a
physical threat to abortion clinics and apparently dropped their
When asked whether a case like this would be
dropped on site, Stone said, “We get complaint calls or allegations all
the time -- whether it’s over e-mail, telephone or letters. We do a lot
of looking into things on the surface to make a determination of
whether there’s something we need to be doing and make determinations
all the time that there is nothing there that we need to be concerned
about or have jurisdiction over. So, technically there’s nothing to
drop if it’s looked into without ever opening a formal investigation.”
Steele said he was initially a little irritated that the FBI
would ask to see his sermons, especially since he had to take time away
from the grieving family in his congregation to answer questions, but
he said he has no plans to stop preaching messages that are culturally
“As a pastor I believe that as Christians we are
called to speak the truth no matter what,” Steele said. “And we have to
continue to speak that truth in love to all people and to share the
message of Christ because it’s the only message that's going to change
the lives of people.”
Roger Lipe, senior pastor at Woodlawn
Baptist Church, a Southern Baptist Convention congregation, in nearby
Woodlawn, Ill., agreed with Steele’s position of speaking the truth in
love to a culture that isn’t always going to be tolerant of such a
“Just look at what’s happening in our society and
what’s happening in Canada -- the laws that have been made there -- and
the pressure on Americans today to enforce hate crime laws,” Lipe said.
“Obviously it’s going to mean that someday when you [as a pastor] get
into your own pulpit, your own church, among your own people to preach
against subjects like abortion and homosexuality and
other biblical things that we’ve got to preach on, then there’s
probably going to be a price to pray.”
In spite of his admitted initial irritation about being questioned by
Steele said that after his meeting with the two agents, he printed off
the two sermons, handed them to the agents and invited them back to his
church hoping that as private citizens they might be interested in
hearing the Word of God.

The Seattle Times
Prophet married Aisha she was very young and not yet ready for
Muhammad settled into his public housing project and immediately began
to act like the fool he had become. Ishaq:235 "In the year of the Prophet's arrival, Abu Umamah died from a
rattling in the throat. The Messenger said, 'His death is an evil thing
for the Jews and the Arab Hypocrites for they are sure to say, "If
Muhammad were really a .prophet his companion would not have died." But
truly, I have no power with Allah either for myself or for my
companions.'" Truer words were never spoken. '
Muhammad had no morals either. Tabari VII:7 "The Prophet married Aisha in Mecca three years before the
Hijrah, after the death of Khadija. At the time she was six." Ishaq:281
"When the Apostle came to Medina he was fifty-three." Tabari VII:6 "In
May, 623 A.D.! A.H. 1, Allah's Messenger consummated his marriage to
Aisha." He would be dead in ten years; she hadn't lived that
long. Pedophilia was, and continues to be, child abuse. The abused had
come full circle; he was now an abuser.
Accusing a prophet of being a pedophile sounds outrageous. Yet the
evidence is undeniable: Tabari IX:128 "When
the Prophet married Aisha, she was very young and not yet ready for
consummation." This is how it happened: 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 took over and
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 brought in while
Muhammad was sitting on a bed in our house. My mother made me sit on
his lap. The other men and ~omen got up and left. The Prophet
consummated his marriage with me in my house when I was nine years old."
Given a choice, I believe most people would prefer to get their
spiritual inspiration from someone who wasn't a sexual predator.
Muhammad struggled to justify his behavior. Bukhari:V9B86N98 "The Prophet said, 'A virgin should not be
married till she is asked for her consent.' '0 Apostle! now will the
virgin express her consent?' He said, 'By remaining silent.'"
Bukhari:V9B87N139-40 "Allah's Apostle
told Aisha, 'You were shown to me twice in my dreams [a.k.a. sexual
fantasies]. I beheld a man or angel carrying you in a silken cloth. He
said to me, "She is yours, so uncover her." And behold, it was you. I
would then say to myself, "If this is from Allah, then it must
happen."'" Allah not only approved pedophilia, he insisted upon
it. That makes the Islamic god as perverted as his prophet.
Since fifty-three-year-old pedophiles are not prophet material, I want
to give Islam every possible opportunity to clear this up. The next
Hadith is from Aisha. Tabari Vll:7 "There
are special features in me that have not been in any woman except for
what Allah bestowed on Maryam bt. Imran [She was referring to Mary, the
mother of Jesus, although s'he didn't know her name or her father's
name, and none of the "features" applied]. I do not say this to exalt
myself over any of my companions.' 'What are these?' someone asked.
Aisha replied, 'The angel brought down my likeness [she was a babe];
the Messenger married me when I was seven; my marriage was consummated
when I was nine [she was abused];,f!e married me when I was a virgin,
no other man having shared me with him [she was a child]; inspiration
came to him when he and I were in a single blaQket [she "inspired"
him]; I was one of the dearest people to him; a verse of the Qur'an was
revealed concerning me when the community was almost destroyed [she
inspired Allah]; and I saw Gabriel when none of his other wives saw him
[she lied].'" Think about the implications of what she just
said. Muhammad was "inspired"-a Qur' an surah was handed down while the
prophet was having sex with a little girl. Allah didn't find pedophilia
the least bit troubling.
The following confirms that the first Muslims were consumed by greed,
the prophet was inspired by the body of a child, and the circumstances
surrounding Qur' an revelations were as perverted as the scripture
itself. Bukhari:V5B57N119 "The people
used to send presents to the Prophet on the day of Aisha's turn [to
have sex with him]. Aisha said, 'His other wives gathered in the
apartment of Um Salama [wife number two] and said, "Um, the peop_le
send presents on the day of Aisha's turn and we too, loye the good
pres~nts just as much as she does. You should tell Allah's Apostle to
order the people to send their presents to him regardless of whose turn
it may be." Um repeated that to the Prophet and he turned away from
her. When the Prophet returned to Um, she repeated the request again.
The Prophet again turned away. After the third time, the Prophet said,
"Um, don't trouble me by harming Aish~, for by Allah, the Divine
Inspiration [Qur'an surahs] never came to me while I was under the
blanket of any woman among you except her."'" If there have been
any skeptics who have made it this far without acknowledging that the
Qur' an was inspired to satisfy Muhammad's cravings, rather than to
save men's souls, welcome to the realm of reason.
Earlier, I accused the victim of pedophilia of lying. I want to explain
why. Her eighth divine gift was contradicted during one of the bedroom
revelations. Bukhari:V4B54N440 "The
Prophet said, 'Aisha, this is Gabriel. He sends his greetings and
salutations.' Aisha said, 'Salutatio,ns and greetings to .him, and
Allah's Blessings.' Addressing the Prophet she said, 'You see what I
don't see. "
This Hadith reveals how perverted Muhammad was and how sane other
.t\rabs were by contrast. Bukhari:V4B52N211 "I participated in a Ghazwa [raid] with the Prophet. I said,
'Apostle, I am a bridegroom.' He asked me whether I had married a
virgin or matron. I answered, 'A matron.' He said, 'Why not a virgin
who would have played with you? Then you could have played with her.'
'Apostle! My father was martyred and I have ",ome young sisters, so I
felt it not proper that I should marry a young girl as young as them.'"
It's obvious who corrupted whom.
Muhammad's behavior would be considered criminal in every civilized
nation on earth. No moral society has ever condoned old men having sex
with young children. If you are caught, you're locked up-separated from
decent people. Pedophilia is so heinous, convicted felons torment child
abusers-even they can't stand to be in their presence.
Such a grotesque act disqualified Muhammad from his alleged calling.
What's more, his personal perversity had a lasting legacy. Muslims
follow his example. While most of what happens in the Islamic world
escapes our purview, as Islam is hostile to all freedoms, including
press and inquiry, we have gained glimpses in Mghanistan and Iraq.
There, virginal young girls are frequently raped by Muslim men. And as
you would expect in a culture influenced by Muhammad, the victims are
shamed, not the perpetrators.
It is little wonder Muhammad's contemporaries called him "mad,"
"insane," and "demon possessed." It is little wonder Islamic clerics
try so hard to hide this stuff from the world. It is why Muhammad
assassinated a score of poets, the journalists of their day, who had
the courage to expose him. It is why Muslim rulers issue fatwas today.
Decadent egomaniacs like Muhammad are deeply troubled and tortured
souls. Their insecurities drive unbridled lusts for power, sex, and
money. Their feelings of inadequacy cause them to be shy, yet their
outward manner overcompensates making them abusive and purposely
deceptive. They need others to bow down to them in submission, and they
require unquestioned obedience. Muhammad was a textbook case (as was
Adolf Hitler, his modem twin). Bukhari:V4B56N762 "The Prophet was shier
than a veined virgin girl." Bukhari:V9B89N251 "Allah's Apostle said, 'Whoever obeys me, obeys Allah, and
whoever disobeys me, disobeys Allah, and whoever obeys the ruler I
appoint, obeys me, and whoever disobeys him, disobeys me.'"
Pedophilia, incest, and rape are all perverted manifestations of a
thirst for power and control. Insecurity is the cause.
I apologize for dragging you through this muck. I realize the material
we just covered would be illegal, even in a pornographic movie. And we
are not done. We have yet to deal with the prophet's other depravities:
incest and rape. But at least you now know why this control freak's
paradise was a brothel filled with ever-attentive young virgins ready
to be conquered.
Muhammad, like his religion, was fixated on the flesh. According to the
Qur' an, bodies were reassembled so that skin could be singed in hell
and teased in paradise. Man's spirit was incidental. I believe this is
because the religion was made in the prophet's image. It reflected his
character and desires.
To appreciate Islam's elevation of body over soul, we must look at the
source of his inspiration. Muhammad was right when he described the
angel that visited him as a slave. Bukhari:V4B54N455 "So (Allah) conveyed the Inspiration to His
slave (Gabriel) and then he (Gabriel) conveyed (it to Muhammad)."
Angels, fallen or heavenly, demonic or godly, have no choice. To borrow
another line from Islam, "They must submit and obey." Islam'.s dark
spirit knew all about angelic submission, because he once was one:
007.011 "It is We who created you and
gave you shape; then We ordered the angels to fall and prostrate
themselves to Adam." The same passage goes on to correctly
implicate Satan and suggest angels are eternal. 007.019 "Satan...said: 'Your Lord only forbid you this
tree, lest you should become angels, immortal, living forever.'"
Satan, like all angels, is a four-dimensional construct. That is to
say, he can maneuver in time-the fourth dimension. While this may sound
complex, we have known since Einstein that space has a fourth axis, an
infinite aspect that we cannot yet navigate. In this regard, angels are
superior to men as we are trapped in three-dimensional bodies-stuck in
time. Yahweh is not, which is why his name means "I Am," or "I Exist."
He is immortal and timeless; his infinity exists in the fourth
dimension. This explains how Yahweh predicts the future. He knows the
future not because he has ordained it but because he has already been
there and witnessed the culmination of our choices.
Now, put yourself in Lucifer's wings for a moment. He knows that his
spirit is inferior to ours for two reasons. We are made spiritually in
God's image. And we have choice. With choice we have the capacity to be
creative and to love. This is why God created us. These attributes
remain his and our most powerful qualities. So Lucifer doesn't want to
compete with us spiritually. He can't win.
But when he competes bodily, he can't lose. We are three dimensional-he
is four. The difference is infinite, just as it is between two- and
three-axis realms. The comparison is like a cartoon rendering of Mickey
Mouse competing with Walt Disney-or more accurately, with Walt's
secretary. This is why Islam is focused on the body. It's why the
covetous Muhammad was the perfect Satanic prophet.
The arrival of the first child born to Muslims after the Hijrah was
celebrated: Tabar; nI:9 "The Messenger's
Companions cried, 'Allahu Akbar' [Allah is Greater than Yahweh, was the
implication], when she was born. This was because a story was current
among the Muslims that the Jews claimed that they had bewitched them so
that no children would be born. The Muslims praised Allah that he had
falsified the Jews' claim." They were saying that their "god's"
magic spells were more powerful then the Jewish God's. Even if they
were right, it made Islam wrong.
The next seven section heads in Tabari's The Foundation of the
Community, begin with "Expedition." The Arabic word is "Maghazi," which
is translated "Raid" in the Sira. It actually means invasion. It's
synonymous with "Jihad," defined by Bukhari as "Holy fighting in
Allah's Cause." A more complete explanation is provided in the Book of
Jihad, on page 580 ofMaktba Dar-us-Salam's publication of Sahih
Al-Bukhari: "Jihad is holy fighting in
Allah's Cause with full force of weaponry. It is given the utmost
importance in Islam and is one of its Pillars. By Jihad Islam is
established, Allah is made superior and He becomes the only God who may
be worshiped. By Jihad Islam is propagated and made superior. By
abandoning Jihad (may Allah protect us from that) Islam is destroyed
and Muslims fall into an inferior position. Their honor is lost, their
lands are stolen, and Muslim rule and authority vanish. Jihad is an
obligatory duty in Islam on every Muslim. He who tries to escape this
duty dies as a hypocrite."
Memorize this paragraph. Shout it out to all who will listen. Every
word was derived from the Qur' an. Every word was lived by Muhammad. It
accurately represents fundamental Islam, so much so, each of the 150
Hadiths that follow this definition of Jihad speak of fighting; none
suggest a spiritual struggle. Among them, Muhammad says that the most
important deed is Jihad, fighting in Allah's Cause. (Bukhari:V4B52N44)
And the'Qur'an agrees, saying peaceful Muslims are hypocrites, destined
for hell. They are "the worst of
creatu,res," "the most vile of animals." (Qur'an surahs 3 and
So that there is no question regarding the appropriateness of using
Bukhari as a source, here's what the Islamic scholars had to say in the
preface: "AI-Bukhari's Hadith is the
most authentic and true book of the Prophet." The translators said, "I
am perfectly sure that the translation, with Allah's help and after all
the great efforts exerted in its production, has neared perfection."
The imams from the cradle of Islam, the Islamic University of Medina in
Saudi Arabia, said, "It has been
unanimously agreed that Imam Bukhari's work is the most authentic of
all the other sources in Hadith literature put together. It is second
only to the Qur'an."
That leaves you and me at the crossroads of destiny. If we don't deal
with the awesome gravity of Islamic Jihad, our future will vanish
before our eyes. If we wish to avoid the abyss of world war we must
expose the doctrine committed to world conquest. We must liberate
Muslims from Islam.
"The Expedition Led by Hamzah"
was the first Maghazi. Hamzah, a huntsman in Mecca, was now a "Mujahid"
(plural-Mujahidun), "a Muslim warrior in
Jihad." Tabar; V1l:10 "In
Ramadhan, seven months after the Hijrah, Muhammad entrusted a white war
banner to Hamzah with the command of thirty Emigrants. Their aim was to
intercept a Quraysh caravan." Seven months after fleeing Mecca
in shame, the pedophile prophet has become a pirate and terrorist.
So that there is no misunderstanding, let's define these less than
admirable characterizations. Pirate: a renegade who, along with others
under his command, uses force of arms to steal the property of others.
Terrorist: a person who violently attacks civilians, destroys their
property, and disrupts their economy as a means to achieve a political
The flag Muhammad handed to Hamzah was a war banner. It was one of the
many symbols the prophet borrowed from his patriarch Qusayy. Hamzah was
a warrior. He was given the command of thirty men. Their aim was to
intercept a caravan, a civilian economic enterprise owned by the people
Muhammad had promised to slaughter because they had teased him.
Although we are told: "they separated
without a battle," the intent was piracy and terror. Their
failure didn't change what they had become-what Islam had done to them.
At this point in the profiteer's career, there were simply more good
guys than there were bad guys, and he was as inept a pirate as he was a
Turning to Muhammad's biographer, we learn more about the mindset of
the first Muslims. Ishaq:283 "Hamza's
expedition to the seashore comprised thirty riders, all Emigra~ts from
Mecca. He met Abu Jahl who had 300 riders. Amr, i..tervened for he 'was
at peace with both sides. Hazma [Muhammad's raider] said, so they
allege: 'Wonder at good seuse and at folly, at a lack of sound counsel
and at sensible advice. Their people and'property are not yet violated
as we haven't attacked. We called them to Islam [surrender] but they
treat it as a joke. They laughed until I threatened them. At the
Apostle's command, I was the first to march ~eneath his flag, a
victorious banner from Allah. Even as they sullied forth burning with
rage, Allah frustrated their schemes.'"
Abu Jahl, a pagan businessman, responded to the Muslim militants:
Ishaq:284 "I am amazed at the causes of
anger and folly and at those who stir up strife by lying c.ontroversy.
They abandon our fathers' ways. They come with lies to twist our minds.
But their lies cannot confound the wise. If you give up your raids we
will take you back for you are our cousins, our kin. But they chose to
believe Muhammad and became obstinately contentious. All their deeds
became evil." As always, the Meccans understood Islam.
Ibn Ishaq believed: Ishaq:281 "The Raid
on Waddan was the first Maghazi." He said, "The Expedition of Ubayda Harith was second. The Apostle sent
Ubayda out on a raid with sixty or eighty riders from the Emigrants,
there not being a single Ansar aQJong them. He encountered a large
number of Quraysh in the Hijaz. Abu Bakr composed a poem about the
raid." Some of the most memorable lines include: "When we called them to the truth they turned
their backs and howled like bitches. Allah's punishment on them will
not tarry. I swear by the Lord of Camels [Allah?] that I am no
perjurer.,A valiant band will descend upon the Quraysh which will leave
women husbandless. It will leave men dead, with vultures wheeling
round. It will not spare the infidels." To which a pagan named
"Slave-to-Allah" replied: Ishaq:282 "Does
your eye weep unceasingly over the ruins of a dwelling [Allah's House]
that the shifting sands obscure? Is your army and declaration of war
firm enough that we should abandon images venerated in Mecca, passed on
to heirs by a noble ancestor [Qusayy]? Are your steeds panting at the
fray, are your swords polished white, are they in the hands of
warriors, dangerous as lions, or are you conceited? Are you here to
quench your thirst for vengeance? Nay, they withdraw in great fear and
Of the raid, the historian reports: Tabari VII:I0 "Eight months after the Hijrah, Allah's Messenger entrusted a
white war banner to Ubaydah and ordered him to march to Batn Rabigh. He
reached the pass of Marah, near Juhfah, at the head of sixty Emigrants
without a single Ansari (Medina Muslim) among them. They met the
polytheists at a watering place called Ahya. They shot arrows at one
another but there was no hand-to- hand fighting."
The prophet is now a repeat offender. Eight months into the Islamic Era
he has ordered multiple attacks. Muslim apologists profess that
Muhammad was forced into defending Islam and that he was neither
aggressor, pirate, nor terrorist. But that position is indefensible.
Nothing is known about the Muhammad of history-no independent records
exist. All that is known about him is contained in these Hadiths. If
they say he attacked a civilian caravan and then ordered men to march
and fight in another town, he did. Therefore, he was the aggressor.
There isn't even a hint of self-defense in these Traditions, nor do
they try to explain away the prophet's motives. They were after money,
not armies-booty, not converts.
You may be wondering why none of the Ansari joined the Muslim Emigrants
from Mecca on either raid. I believe that the answer is that they
hadn't been Muslims long enough and therefore still knew right from
wrong. Islam had already corrupted the Meccan Muslims to the p9int that
they thought piracy and terror were justifiable, even admirable. Kind
of reminds us of the modern day Islamic terrorists.
lshaq:285 "Then the Apostle went raiding
in the month of Rabi u'I-Awwal making for the Quraysh. He returned to
Medina without fighting. Then he raided the Quray~h by way of Dinar."
Tabari VII:ll "In this year the
Messenger entrusted to Sa'd a white war banner for the expedition to
Kharrar. Sa'd said, 'I set out on foot at the head of twenty men. We
used to lie hidden by day and march at night, until we reached Kharrar
on the fifth morning. The caravan had arrived .in town a day before.
There were sixty men with it. Those who were with Sa'd were all
Emigrants.'" Muhammad is now a serial offender, a committed
pirate and terrorist, albeit a failed one.
Tabari VII:ll "The Messenger of Allah
went out on a raid as far as Waddan, searching for Quraysh. In the
course of which, the Banu Damrah made a treaty of friendship with him.
Then Muhammad returned to Medina without any fighting and remained
there for the rest of the month." This time Muhammad took
command himself with the express .intent of finding the Quraysh and
robbing them. And while it is noble that he inked a treaty of
friendship, even this was the wrong thing for a prophet to do. Treaties
are political, not religious. Muhammad was now considered a "fellow
chief' commanding a band of armed men-hardly prophet-like. Besides, the
Qur' an would ultimately say that treaties with unbelieving infidels
weren't binding on Muslims. This alliance was with pagans.
Tabari VII:12 "During this stay he sent
Ubaydah at the head of sixty horsemen from the Emigrants without a
single Ansari among them. He got as far as a watering place in Hijaz
[Central Arabia], below the pass of Marah. There he met a greater band
of Quraysh, but there was no fighting except Sa'd shot an arrow. Then
the two groups separated from one another, the Muslims leaving a
rearguard." Islamic raiders marched with the intent to plunder
and kill. The only thing that stopped them from achieving their
objective was the sight of a superior force. As we seek to defend
ourselves today we would do well to keep this in mind.
Tabar; V1I:13 "Muhammad led an
expedition in [the month of] Rabi aI-Akhir in search of Quraysh. He
went as far as Buwat in the region of Radwa and then returned without
any fighting. Then he led another expedition in search of the Meccans.
He took the mountain track and crossed the desert, halting beneath a
tree in Batha. He prayed there. [What on earth was he praying for? "0
God, please help me rob and kill people. Thank you. Amen."] After a few
days the Prophet went out in pursuit of the Kutz." The Islamic
Era was but a year old, yet Muslims were fully committed to the path of
piracy and terror. Forget for a moment that this was supposed to be a
religion. There was nothing noble, moral, or redeeming about raiding
parties seeking to plunder civilian caravans or expeditions marching
off to terrorize unsuspecting villagers. Just as there was no redeeming
surah in Mecca, there is no virtuous behavior in Medina. I haven't
cherry-picked the ugly parts out of a sea of pious religious
activities. I have reported everything.
The second year of the Islamic Era began as the first one ended. The
opening headline reads: Tabari VII:15 "Expeditions
Led by Allah's Messenger," This was followed by: "In this year,
according to all Sira writers, the Messenger personally led the Ghazwa
of Alwa. [A Ghazwa is an Islamic Invasion in Allah's Cause consisting
of a large army unit led by the Prophet himself.] He left Sa'd in
command of Medina. On this raid his banner was carried by Hamzah. He
stayed out for fifteen days and then returned to Medina." This
was the eighth failed terrorist attack in as many months.
There are two interesting subtleties here. First, Sa'd, Chairman
Muhammad's most fierce warrior, was left in "command" of Medina because
the "prophet" had become a warlord. And considering the nature of the
Islamic world today, that made him a role model. Second, the "religion"
of Islam actually coined a word to define an armed raid personally led
by its prophet. There is something very perverse about that.
"According to Waqidi, the Messenger
went on a Ghazwa at the head of two hundred of his companions in
October, 623 and reached Buwat. His intention was to intercept a
Quraysh caravan with a hundred men and twenty-five hundred camels."
This expedition was neither a military operation nor was it defensive.
And it most assuredly wasn't religious. It was an act of terrorism
against a civilian economic activity. The pirate was after booty.
The Hadith reports: "In this year
Muhammad sent forth the Emigrants to intercept a Quraysh caravan en
route to Syria. His war banner was carried by Hamzah." It also
failed. The score was Muslim Militants 0, Infidels 10. Unfortunately,
Islam would get better at this game than they ever got at religion.
Ishaq:286/Tabari VII:16 "Ali and I were
with the Messenger on ~the Ghazwa of Ushayrah. We halted on one
occasion and saw some men of the Banu Mudlij worki~g in one of their
date groves. I said, 'Why don't we go and see how they work?' So we
went and .watched them for a while; then we felt drowsy and went to
sleep on dusty ground under the trees. Muhammad woke us, arriving as we
were covered in dust. He stirred All with his foot and said, 'Arise, 0
dusty one! Shall I tell you who was the most wretched man? Ahmar of
Thamud for he slaughtered the she-camel and he shall strike you here.'
Muhammad put his hand to the side of Ali's head, until it was soaked
from it. Then he ~rabbed his beard."
The Qur'an claims that the Thamudic nation was destroyed by Allah
because someone hamstrung a camel. While it's odd he liked camels more
than men, there was a bigger perversion still in this tale of misplaced
ambition. The Muslims were so unfamiliar with honest labor they went to
watch someone work. And they were so lazy, they fell asleep doing it.
Ultimately, that was why the pirates were there in the first place.
When the bedraggled Muslim refugees migrated north they became
dependent upon handouts. They were physically able to work, since they
went off on raids. And the oasis town of Yathrib was a bustling
agricultural and commercial center, so there was plenty of work being
done. All of which leads to a conclusion: something in Islam made the
Muslims unwilling to work. And it affects them to this day. Islamic
states have the lowest per capita productivity in the world. Islam
politically and economically is as faulty as the religion is false.
Ishaq:286 "Meanwhile the Apostle sent
Sa'd on the raid of Abu Waqqas. The Prophet only stayed a few nights in
Medina before raiding Ushayra and then Kurz."
Let's review Bukhari's Book of Maghazi to get a better feel for what's
happening: Bukhari:V5B57Nl "Allah's
Apostle said, 'A time will come when a group of Muslims will wage a
Holy War and it will be said, "Is there anyone who has accompanied
Allah's Apostle?" They will say, "Yes." And so victory will be bestowed
on them.'" Bukhari:V5B57N51 "The Apostle said, 'Tomorrow I will give
the flag to a man whose leadership Allah will use to grant a Muslim
victory." Bukhari:V5B59N569 "I fought in seven Ghazwat battles
along with the Prophet and fought in nine Maghazi raids in armies
dispatched by the Prophet."
There was nothing "spiritual" about fundamental Islam: Bukhari:V5B57N74
"I heard Sa'd saying, 'I was the
first Arab to shoot an arrow in Allah's Cause.'" Bukhari:
V5B59N288 "I witnessed a scene that was
dearer to me than anything 1 had ever seen. Aswad came to the Prophet
while Muhammad was urging the Muslims to fight the pagans. He said, 'We
shall fight on your right and on your left and in front of you and
behind you.' I saw the face of the Prophet getting bright with
happiness, for that saying delighted him." Bukhar/:V5B59N290 "The believers who did not join the Ghazwa and
those who fought are not equal in reward." Bukhari:V5B59N320 "Allah's Apostle said, 'When your enemy ,comes
near shoot at them but use your arrows sparingly (so that they are not
wasted).'" Bukhari:V5B59N401 "Allah's
Wrath became severe on anyone the Prophet killed in Allah's Cause."
While the terrorist raids were hardly religious, religious symbolism
and rewards were used to solicit and inspire the new combatants:
Bukhari:V5B59N456 "Muhammad led the Fear
Prayer with one batch of his army while the other (batch) faced the
enemy." Bukhari: V5B59N330 "The
Prophet said, 'This is Gabriel holding the head of his horse, equipped
with arms for the battle.'" Bukhari:V5B59N440 "Allah's Apostle used to say, 'None has the
right to be worshipped except Allah Alone because He honored His
Warriors and made, His Messenger victorious. He (Alone) defeated the
Infidel clans; so there is nothing left.'" Bukhari: V5B59N377 "A man came to the Prophet and said, 'Can you
tell me where I will go if 1 get martyred?' The Prophet replied, 'To
Paradise.' The man fought till he was martyred." There are no
such bargains in the Gospels. Killing is not an express ticket to
heaven. Yahshua never asked his followers to "slay" anyone. Christ
mentions killing only once. He tells a parable about a ruler in the
final days of the Tribulation to encourage Christians to be productive,
In the Torah, Yahweh asked the Israelites to kill once, as well. He
told Moses and Joshua to remove those poisoned by the Canaanite
religion from the land. They were like Muhammad's Muslims: immoral,
terrorizing, plundering, enslaving; and murdering. Their religion was
as corrupt as Islam--equally demonic. Yahweh recognized it was more
compassionate to exterminate some Canaanites than it was to allow them
to seduce millions. He made the right call, but the Jews failed to
execute his order.
Let's consider Yahweh's moral justification for fighting. Imagine that
you were God and knew the thousand people most responsible for the
September 11th suicide bombings. You know that they have been poisoned
to believe that mass murder is a service to you. Left alone, they will
corrupt and murder thousands. Would you kill them before they
perpetrated these crimes or would you let them go ahead?
Now move back in time to the dawn of the 20th century. As usual, the
world is full of bad people and bad ideas, but two doctrines are
especially lethal-Communism and Nazism. Because you've read their
manifestoes and have maneuvered in time, you know what is going to
happen. Within their first three decades, these dictatorial,
intolerant, and violent dogmas will lead directly to the annihilation
of over fifty million people and to the indoctrination of a billion
more. Given the opportunity, would you exterminate a few thousand
aspiring Communists and- Nazis to save the lives of the fifty million
their regimes butchered? Would you do it to save a billion people from
being forced into submission-forced to live in civil, religious,
intellectual, and economic poverty? Would you do it to keep them from
growing strong enough to kill you, your neighbors, and your children?
What is the most moral, just, and compassionate choice?
Perhaps now you know why Yahweh ordered his people to slay the
practitioners of a doctrine virtually identical to Islam. But don't get
carried away. His last command to kill was 3,200 years ago. His command
wasn't open ended. It was directed at a specific group of people, in a
specific time and specific place. Apart from self defense, that's the
end of the story.
So, when you hear Muslims defend their violent doctrine, saying that
the Bible is equally warlike, you'll know the truth. Yahweh asked once.
He identified the reason and the people. The order wasn't open ended,
either. And, even if it were, there are no Canaanites to kick around.
What's more, the Jews were expressly forbidden from taking a spoil.
When the walls of Jericho fell, its storehouses remained filled.
Children were not sent off into slavery; women were not raped as if
they were booty. The Judeo-Christian scriptures have to be corrupted to
inspire such horrible acts.
Allah, by contrast, gave Muslims hundreds of comm,ands to kill. Hig.
orders were open ended-surviving throughout time. And his intended
victims were many: those who worshiped the one true God, many gods, or
no gods at all. Allah especially hated Christians and Jews, ordering
Muslims to fight them until they were "wiped out to the last." This is
fundamental Islam-the very core of Muhammad's message.
That said, there is one Bible verse that appears to be both open ended
and to encourage violence. As such, Psalm 149 became the rallying cry
for the Crusades. In actuality it is P!.ophetic, speaking of what's
called the "Tribulation," and of the return of the Messiah. In the
fashion of Hebrew poetry, the Psalm presents a series of nine
couplets-pairs of phrases that say the same thing in different words.
Let's review them. The first couplet speaks prophetically of the new
millennium, of the church and saints: "Praise Yahweh. Sing unto Yahweh
a fresh song, and sing his praise in the congregation of saints." The
second celebrates the end of the Tribulation, and the Messi~'s return:
"Let Israel rejoice in Yahweh who made them, let th:e Children of
Israel be joyfuIill their King." Then, "Let them praise Yahweh's
character in dance, let them sing praises unto Yahweh with the
tambourine and harp." Speaking of the Messiah's gift of salyation,the
next reports: "For Yahweh is pleased with his people; He will glorify
the meek with salvation." The fifth couplet reveals: "Let the saints be
joyful in this glorious honor; let them shout from their resting
place." At Christ's return the souls of the saints will be raised from
A Catholic Pope misinterpreted the sixth verse to advance his persopal
agenda: "Let the exaltation of the Almighty be in their mouths, and a
two-edged sword be in their open hand." A two-edged sword is the
Bible's metaphor for divine judgment or rendering a godly verdict.
That's why it's in an "open hand," which could not wield an instrument
of violence. Its pair in the couplet references the exalted words of
the Almighty-suggesting an oral verdict, not a slashing weapon. The
seventh pair proclaims: "To advance vengeance upon the nations and
punishment upon the people." This speaks to the final judgment of
Yahweh on those who attack Israel during World War 1lI, midway through
the Tribulation. Interesting, in that the predicted Magog war against
Israel is perpetrated entirely by Islamic states.
This is followed by: "To yoke kings together, bringing them forth, and
those who are severe will be tied with iron twine." In other words,
following God's verdict, the purveyors of false doctrines, those who
are severe, will be restrained. The final couplet reveals: "To advance
-the verdict upon them, prescribed by the splendor of his saints.
Praise Yahweh." The entire Psalm is prophetic, speaking of the final
judgment of nations following the Messiah's return in power and glory.
There is no command to fight or kill anyone.
Since Islam's principle defense is to claim that Christians have
performed no better, especially during the Crusades, I want to bring
your attention to two incredibly important historical facts. First,
Pope Benedict IV: he reigned in 1033 A.D., precisely 1,000 years after
Christ's resurrection. Benedict became like Muhammad, demonic, fixated
on the occult, demented, delirious, and lascivious. The Church became
corrupt, fixated on rituals, suppression, and money. With power-hungry
men at the helm, it splintered, ultimately causing cleric and king to
send men off on fool-hearty crusades.
The second historical fact is that the Crusaders weren't Christians.
They couldn't have been. Four centuries had passed since the last
sermon was given in a language common to the people of Europe. The
first Bible to be printed in the vulgar tongue, John Wycliffe's,
wouldn't find quill for another four centuries. To be a "Christian" one
must know Christ. He could not have been known to the men who fought.
They carried his symbols, nothing more.
Returning to 7th-century Medina, Muhammad was back on the warpath:
Tabari V1I:18/Ishaq:287 "The Messenger
sent Abd Allah out with a detachment of eight men of the Emigrants
without any Ansari, or Helpers, among them. He wrote a letter, but
ordered him not to look at it until he had traveled for two days. Then
he was to carry out what he was commanded to do. When Abd Allah opened
the letter it said, 'March until you reach Nakhlah, between Mecca and
Ta'if. Lie in wait for the Quraysh there, and find out for us what they
are doing.'" The letter suggests there was treachery among the
treacherous. One or more Muslims was spilling the beans and tipping off
the Quraysh before the militants could rob them.
"Having read the letter, Abd Allah
said, 'To hear is to obey.' He told his companions, 'The Prophet has
commanded me to go to Nakhlah and lie in wait for the Quraysh."
To "lie in wait" was an order to kill. I present Allah as an authority.
Qur'an 9:5: "When the prohibited months
for fighting are over, slay the pagans wherever you find them. Take
them captive and besiege them. Lie in wait for them in every likely
Abd Allah tells his fellow militants: "The
Prophet has forbidden me to compel you, so whoever desires martyrdom,
let him come with me. If not, retreat. I am going to carry out the
Prophet's orders.'" Martyrdom-the word that manufacturers
terrorists faster than the world can rid itself of them, was spoken for
the first time. No word has ever held such dire consequences for abused
The Islamic concept of martyrdom was twisted. Muhammad took a good word
and made it bad. Prior to Islam, a martyr willingly sacrificed his or
her life to save others, not kill them. A Christian martyr sought
nothing. Their lives served as a living witness so that others might
know the value of their faith. They died with scripture in their hands,
not swords. The Greek word martus, from which martyr was derived, means
"witness." Yet at Muhammad's direction it came to mean "murderer."
Muslims obtained martyrdom by terrorizing others-murdering millions.
Muslim martyrs are mercenaries, wielding swords in pursuit of plunder.
I believe that this is Lucifer's signature once again. He is the
world's most acclaimed counterfeiter. Martyrdom is good, but not as a
pirate. Money is good, but not when it is plundered. Sex is good, but
not as an act of pedophilia. Prophets are good, but not when they are
motivated by profit. Scripture is good, but not when it's perverted.
Prayer is good, but not when one prostrates oneself to the Devil.
Ishaq:287 "His companions went with him;
not one of them stayed behind." A second Hadith. says: "Whoever desires
death, let him go on and make his will; I am making my will and acting
on the orders of the Messenger of Allah." Tabari VII:18 "They made their way through the Hijaz until
Sa'd and Utbah lost a camel which they were taking turns riding. They
stayed behind to look for it. The rest went on until they reached
Nakhlah. A Meccan caravan went past them carrying raisins, leather, and
other merchandise, which the Quraysh traded. When they saw the Muslims
they were afraid of them. Then Ukkashah [one of the Muslims] came into
view; they saw that he had shaved his head, and they felt safer. The
Quraysh said, 'They are on their way to the umrah (lesser pilgrimage);
there is nothing to fear.'" The pagan umrah had become part of
Islam. However, shaving one's head was used to venerate AI-Lat, not
Allah. So the Quraysh were as confused as I am. Why would a Muslim
militant venerate a pagan idol while perusing plunder in Allah's name?
Ishaq:287 "The Muslim raiders consulted
one another concerning them, this being the last day of Rajab."
Rajah, like Ramadhan, was a holy month on the pagan calendar. Fighting,
looting, and general mayhem were prohibited. It is troubling that the
observance of a pagan rite was a limiting factor, while thievery and
murder were not. This says a great deal about the nature of Islam. "One of the Muslims said, 'By Allah, if we
leave these people alone tonight, they will get into the Haram (the
sacred territory of Mecca) and they will be safely out of our reach. If
we kill them we will have killed in the sacred month.'" Tlie
debate was between paganism and criminal behavior. Islam had nothing to
do with Muhammad's mission.
Tabari VII:I9 "They hesitated and were
afraid to advance on them, but then they plucked up courage and agreed
to kill as many as they could and to seize what they had with them."
This isn't the least bit ambiguous. The first Muslims-Muhammad's
disciples-were about to co.nduct a terrorist raid with the intent to
loot and kill.
"Waqid ibn Abd Allah shot an arrow
at Amr and killed him. Uthman ibn Abd Allah and aI-Hakam surrendered,
but Nawfal ibn Abd Allah escaped and eluded them. Then Abd Allah and
his companions took the caravan and the captives back to Allah's
Apostle in Medina." Islam had drawn first blood. The score was
now Islam 1, Infidels 11. 'Fhe Hadith says: "This was the first booty taken by the Companions of Muhammad."
Reading the passage carefully, we find there were four Slaves-to-Allah
in the raid-two were Muslims and two were infidels. It is yet another
drop in an ocean of evidence that Allah was a pagan deity, a common
rock idol. Abd Allah said of his adventure: Ishaq:289 "Our lances drank of Amr's blood and lit the
flame of war." Tabari VII:20/Ishaq:287 "Abd Allah told his Companions, 'A fifth of the booty we have
taken belongs to the Apostle.' This was before Allah made surrendering
a fifth of the booty taken a requirement." Qur'an 8:41, a verse
from a surah dedicated to booty, says that Muhammad was entitled to one
fifth of whatever Muslims looted. The 69th verse proclaims: "The use of such spoils is lawful and good."
The fact Abd Allah announced this partitioning of booty years in
advance of the Qur' anic endorsement suggests that the idea was
Muhammad's, and that he made up a verse to ratify his claim. Money is a
"He set aside a fifth of the booty
for Allah's Messenger and divided the rest between his. Companions."
If there was any doubt as to why the first Muslim militants were off on
their twelfth raid in twelve months, it should have been eliminated
with this line. Their mission had nothing to do with religion. Nor did
Muhammad's. It had always been about money. Religion was simply a tool,
a veil, a distraction-a means to legitimize murder and mayhem.
Muhammad's raiders weren't religious zealots; they were mercenaries at
best, pirates at worst. And lest we forget, they were now murderers,
kidnappers, and thieves.
When the raiders returned to Yathrib, they were blindsided by a raging
controversy. Both the Emigrants and Helpers were horrified-deeply
troubled by the breach of the holy month protections. Even the most
despicable bandits refrained from thievery during Rejab. And, I
suppose, they may have been bothered by the fact they had murdered,
robbed, and kidnapped their kin.
This societal disdain put the wannabe prophet in a quandary. Muhammad
was broke, and poor dictators don't last long. But if he accepted the
booty, he would trash his already shaky religious credentials. He wa,s
on his heels and teetering from the Quraysh Bargain, the Satanic
Verses, the Night's Journey, and the Migration of Shame. Stooping to
the depths of a scoundrel, a murderous pirate, and a two-bit terrorist
so desperate for money he would steal during Rajab, was one blow too
many. So what to do?
His first ploy was to betray his troops, something Muslim suicide
bombers should keep in mind the next time they contemplate murdering
their way to paradise. Tabari VII:20 "When
they reached the Prophet he said, 'I did not order you to fight in the
sacred month.' He impounded the caravan and the two captives and
refused to take anything from them." The prospect of "martyrdom"
and "lying in wait" confirms that Muhammad had sent his Muslim raiders
out to fight, as did the requirement of making out their wills. The
"division of spoils" agreement indicates he had given his authorization
for them to steal. The lying prophet was buying time, which is why he
didn't send the booty back. He was trying to find a way to keep the
money and maintain his dwindling prestige. "
"When Allah's Messenger said this
they were aghast and thought that they were doomed. The Muslims rebuked
them severely for what they had done. They said, 'You have done what
you were not commanded to do, and have fought in the sacred month.'"
To salvage his reputation, and thus cling to his position of power,
Muhammad made his men scapegoats. His letter confirmed his complicity.
He had sent them 04t in Rajab, the idolaters' sacred month. The act
made him an accessory to murder and a thief; the denial made him a
pagan and a liar-something far more lethal to someone pretending to be
Tabari VII:20/Ishaq:288 "The Quraysh
said, 'Muhammad and his Companions have violated the sacred month, shed
blood, seized property, and taken men captive.' The polytheists spread
lying slander concerning him, saying, 'Muhammad claims that he is
follow~.ng obedience to Allah, yet he is the first to violate the holy
mOnth and to kill our companion in Rajab.'" The pagans knew that
breaking treaties, murder, kidnapping, and thievery were wrong. It's a
shame that Islam's lone prophet didn't.
I find it especially revealing that when the Meccans told the truth
about what had just happened, they were called "lying slanderers." This
has devastating implications for the totality of the Qur'an. Its second
most repetitive theme is the never-ending argument. The Meccans said
that Muhammad was a demon-possessed liar, not a prophet. They said that
he had forged the Qur'an to serve his personal ambitions. They appeared
to be right and yet Islam's dark spirit called them "lying slanderers."
In this circumstance, the Meccans were absolutely right and yet
Muhammad deployed the same strategy. At the very least, this suggests
that the Hadith and Qur'an had the same speechwriter, the same agenda,
and the same wanton disregard for truth. It also tells us that those
who knew this "prophet" far better than we could possibly know him
today, saw him as a terrorist raider, an immoral thug, and as a liar.
Tabari VII:21 "The Muslims who were
still in Mecca refuted this." It was embarrassing. It meant that
they had plaCed their trust in a man unworthy of it. Ishaq:288 "The Jews, seeing in this an omen unfavorable
to Muhammad, said, 'Muslims killing Meccans means war is kindled.'
There was much talk of this. However, Allah turned it to their
disadvantage. When the Muslims repeated what the Jews had said, Allah
revealed a Qur'an to His Messenger: 'They question you with regard to
warfare in the sacred month. Say, "War therein is serious, but keeping
people from Islam, from the sacred mosque, and driving them out is more
serious with Allah.' [Qur'an 2:217] The Muslims now knew that seduction
was worse than killing." Considering the facts, this was an
inane excuse for violating treaties, kidnapping, theft, and murder. The
Meccan merchants were minding their business. They weren't seducing
anyone. And once again, the prophet behaves badly and it's the pagans'
fault, not his own.
Ishaq:288 "When the Qur' an passage
concerning this matter was revealed, aud Allah relieved Muslims from
their fear and anxiety, Muhammad took possession of the caravau and
prisoners. The Quraysh sent him a ransom, but the Prophet said, 'We
will not release them to you on payment of ransom until our companions
(Sa'd and Utbah) get back, for we are afraid you may harm them. If you
kill them, we will kill your friends.' They came back, however, and the
Prophet released the prisoners ou payment of ransom. When the Qur' an
authorization came down to Muhammad, Abd Allah and his Companions were
relieved and they became anxious for an additional reward. They said,
'Will this. raid be counted as part of the reward promised to Muslim
combatants?' So Allah sent down this Qur'an: 'Those who believe and
have fought in Allah's Cause may receive Allah's mercy.' Allah made the
booty permissible. He divided the loot, awarding four-fifths to the men
He had allowed to take it. He gave one-fifth to His Apostle."
Mercy for murderers. Rewards for raiders. Loot for profiteers. "Allah's
Cause" has been defined for the first time, and it's directly linked to
a terrorist raid-one in which Muslim militants attacked civilians. They
committed capital murder, kidnapping, and armed robbery. Islam was not
preached. Instead, Islam was used to motivate the bandits and reward
the prophet. The "religion" prompted barbarism rather than discourage
This incident alone destroys Islam's religious credentials, Muhammad's
authority, and Allah's credibility. God justifying violent criminal
acts to satisfy a prophet's financial lust is unfathomable. If we are
to believe Muhammad, Allah approved murder, terror, thievery, and
kidnapping for ransom. Forget for a moment that this dark spirit was
demented. This is immoral. An immoral god cannot be trusted. An immoral
deity isn't worthy of a. religion, devotion, sacrifice, or martyrdom.
The same is true for an immoral prophet. Muhammad had sent out armed
brigades in search of Quraysh hoping to terrorize them and rob their
caravans. When his militants succeeded, he betrayed his mercenaries to
save his own hide, yet he still took the money. He threatened to kill
his kin and ransomed them back to his tribe. Then he claimed that his
god approved this hellacious behavior, which was the biggest crime of
The only thing more devastating than a man professing situational
scriptures to legitimize terror, murder, robbery, and kidnapping for
ransom is to lure billions to their doom by implying these words were
inspired by God. By doing so, Muhammad confirmed my theory'. Islam was
nothing more than the Profitable Prophet Plan. According to the Sira,
Muhammad was a con man.
There have been millions of murderers, millions of kidnappers, millions
of terrorists. There have been millions of sexual predators. Thieves
are a dime a dozen. And there have been 'a score of men who have done
these things while claiming to be anointed by God. Yet only one
invented a "religion" and falsified "scripture" to satiate his demonic
cravings. This is why Muhammad, Islam's lone prophet, qualifies as the
most evil man to have ever lived.
