    “Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.”

    BYZANTINE EMPEROR MANUEL PALEOLOGOS II, 14th century

    "What is more, no wise man, men trained in things divine and human, believed in him (Muhammad) from the beginning. Those who believed in him were brutal men and desert wanderers, utterly ignorant of all divine teaching, through whose numbers Mohammed forced others to become his followers by the violence of his arms."

    Father Thomas Aquinas

    ". . he (Muhammad) perverts almost all the testimonies of the Old and New Testaments by making them into fabrications of his own (the koran), as can be seen by anyone who examines his law. It was, therefore, a shrewd decision on his part to forbid his followers to read the Old and New Testaments, lest these books convict him of falsity. It is thus clear that those who place any faith in his words believe foolishly."

    Father Thomas Aquinas

    Confirmation complete.

    1. Jews told Muhammad that since he wasn't a Jew he couldn't possibly be a Prophet of God.

    2. Christians told Muhammad that since he wasn't a Christian he couldn't possibly be a Prophet of God.

    3. Jews and Christians learned of the details of Muhammad's supposed spiritual visits when Muhammad was in a cave and they immediately knew that it was not God nor the angel Gabriel that visited Muhammad in the cave.

    4. Muhammad insisted on not only being a Prophet of God but he said that he was the LAST Prophet of God.

    5. Muhammad insisted that Islam was the third Abrahamic religion after Judaism and Christianity despite the Jews and Christians rejection of Muhammad as a Prophet of God and Islam as an Abrahamic religion.

    6. Muhammad only succeeded in spreading Islam when he forced it on people and those who did not accept Islam were killed.

    7. Muhammad cursed the Jews and Christians on his deathbed because the Jews and Christians always knew that Muhammad lied about being a Prophet of God.

    8. Muhammad was never a Christian nor was he ever a Jew. How could be possibly be a Prophet of God? How can Islam possibly be an Abrahamic religion?

    9. Since Muhammad was proven to not be a Prophet of God he was obviously not "of God".

    10. Since Muhammad was not "of God" then Islam itself is not "of God".

    11. Since Islam itself is not "of God" it is obviously not a religion.

    12. Islam is a Godless cult.

    When my cousin was over in Iraq on duty, his job was to teach the Iraq soldiers how to repair vehicles . He said they were completely unteachable as their religion interfered with their thinking. He said maybe 1 out of a 100 had an above avg IQ and could be taught. I'm not making this up. They are neanderthals.

    The problem is not Islam. It's organized religion in general. Let's not act like Christians, Jews, Hindus, etc have not committed atrocities in the name of "god."

    Incorrect. Dumb people think when they die they will have 15 virgins waiting for them if they blow themselve up for the cause.

    Christianity and Judiasm mended their ways decades ago. Islam continues continues its Stone Age ways because it runs the society from birth to death. BTW it is the Qu'ran.

    IMHO, most countries with majority Muslim populations are feudal states. There is a small ruling elite, a powerful clergy and a mass of under educated people.
    Islam (just like Christianity in pre-18 century Europe) is used to keep the masses in line.

    Just because something is evil doesn't mean it isn't a religion by definition. People always cry that Islam isn't a religion "it's a cult".. I belonged to a penecostal church and baptists uses to call us a cult. Some still do....... Anything can be a religion, Satanism is also a religion, and in many ways--so is darwinism.

    As a descendant of Irish and Italian immigrants, I have to say... they were right.
