    Can you counter Robert's account with facts and figures and truth? The answer is absolutely no Can you slander him with your rants? The answer is yesNow you can understand why he is hated and why is loved less I am becoming a fan of him as much as I read him Robert has peeled the truth naked Anyone who wants to understand the truth objectively has to go through Robert Spencer's books

    There is the glamorous image of Mohammed and that you will find in a plethora of books promoted by American universities so that people might sound politically correct And there is the real picture of Mohammed as I used to follow him since he used to be my prophet till I was just turning twenty years old I was blindly following Islam and never uestioned a thing for fear of being punished persecuted or even killed But the truth is the truth Islam is a religion of terror and Mohammed is a man of terror There is a striking similarity between Nazism and Islam so much so that Islam should pass rather for an ideology not a religion Bertrand Russell said Mahommedanism and Bolshevism are practical social unspiritual concerned to win the empire of this world What Mahommedanism did for the Arabs Bolshevism may do for the Russians The Practice and Theory of Bolshevism Mohammed was rejected by his own people became angry started a religion a hodgepodge of everything in Arabia at the time and the rest is history His devout followers would be made likewise in his image feeling persecuted by everybody feeling hated by everybody a martyr’s complex and full of anger It turns out that Mohammed is obviously the alter ego of Allah himself Allah is the superego of Mohammad and Mohammed made God in his own image an Allah who inspires fear timidity anger terror and oppression

    Though often called a religion of peace the truth about Islam is uite the opposite as is the truth about its founder Muhammad This book is no anti Muslim screed however; it takes its facts and ideas directly from Islamists themselves from the Koran and the authoritative commentaries that have grown up around the holy book for over a milennia Cut through the hype and the PR and go directly to the source Muhammad was a robber an unsuccessful proselytizer couldn't convert the Jews which is why he hated them and married a nine year old girl As if that weren't enough the most disturbing fact about the Koran is the satanic verses episode in which Muhammad believes he has received a revelation from God only to discover later upon introspection that he had been deceived by Satan Which is why Rushdie's book of the same title resulted in such outrage from Muslims he was rubbing their faces in the fallibility of their prophet blessings be upon him Read this book and make up your own mind

    So after thousands of years we have Judaism with Abraham and Moses; Christianity with Jesus Christ; and Islam with Muhammad may peace be upon him The Jews the Christians and the Muslims They all believe that there is only one God And it is the same God they believe inEach group however considers its religion as the one true faith The Jews do not consider Jesus as the Messiah they've been waiting for and consider Muhammad as a false prophet The Christians look down upon the Jews as their old clueless brothers and the Muslim faith as an aberration of history The Muslims call the other two as infidels They all have had this sordid past of killing each other in the name of the same God which they happen to worship differentlyThis book was the very first one I've read about the life and times of Muhammad whereas I knew already or less the life stories of Abraham Moses and Jesus But I noticed one striking similarity among these four great religious figures they all claimed to had had direct communications with God either conversing with the latter or his angels or receiving so called revelations From what God supposedly declared via their privileged status sprang the do's and don't's the practices and theology of their respective systems of beliefThus in this book I learned that from what Muhammad obeying God all the time supposedly did or said emanated the Muslims' practices of praying five times daily facing the direction of Mecca their concept of martyrdom as involving killing and getting killed in the name of God unlike in Christianity where martyrdom involves just getting killed for one's faith the lack of gender euality in their society their penchant for beheading their captives their draconian punishments for crimes the lack of separation between church and state for Muhammad never uttered anything similar to Jesus's render unto Ceasar which is Ceasar's the need for their women to cover themselves almost completely in public and to kill fatwa people like Salman Rushdie who ridicules their prophet Muhammad and the right of husbands to have several wives to beat them if they so much as flirt with other menYou have rights over your wives and they have rights over you You have the right that they should not defile your bed and that they should not behave with open unseemliness If they do God allows you to put them in separate rooms and to beat them but not with severityDid these men of faith really exist thousands of years ago? Apart from the belief or faith of the respective adherents of these religious systems who really can tell one way or the other? They are not historical figures whose past existence cannot possibly be disputed like say Ayatollah Khomeini or Abraham Lincoln Or at least for Jesus not yet The search for the historical Jesus is apparently continuing every now and then one hears about things like the discovery of Jesus's possible tomb the latest results of the study of the Shroud of Turin or some newly discovered ancient texts saying that Jesus was married As to Abraham and Moses they are far too removed from the present time that finding evidence of their flesh and blood existence seemed remote; while the Muslims find no interest whatsoever in proving the very much real Muhammad who gets offended if he is drawn as cartoon figures or made into film and would like cartoonists and film makers fatwa'dBut from what we read about them Old Testament New Testament the Koran can we say that they are improbable most likely fictive characters? Certainly not After their times and even up to now there were still people who claimed to be prophets with messages coming from God However nowadays these self proclaimed messengers from heaven are either given medication or treated in mental asylums Some managed to form their sects and perish in a blaze of glory see for example Mario Vargas Llosa's The War of the End of the WorldAisha once asked Muhammad what the experience of receiving revelations was like and he responded 'Sometimes it is like the ringing of a bellSometimes the Angel comes in the form of a man and talks to me' On another occasion he explained 'The revelation dawns upon me in two ways the angel Gabriel brings it and conveys to me as a man conveys to another man and that makes me restless And it dawns upon me like the sound of a bell till it enters my heart and this does not make me restless' Aisha noted 'When revelation descended upon Allah's Messenger may peace be upon him even during the cold days his forehead perspired' Another asked Muhammad a uestion Muhammad 'waited for a while and then the Divine Inspiration descended upon himThe Prophet's face was red and he kept on breathing heavily for a while and then he was relieved' Then he gave an answer to the uestionerSo let's say you're a Jew or a Christian or a Muslim and you are scared to even consider the possibility that your prophets were as much as a mythical figure as those Greek gods in Mount Olympus you then make their existence as a given After all it is less likely that they never existed at all or that they were just works of fiction created in a conspiracy among their earliest proponents The next uestion however is this did your prophets' teachings really came from God? Again I say setting aside faith who really can tell?But think would a Merciful God creator or all that exist really prefer one people over the others or one system of belief over the others that he through revelation or the lips of one prophet would give an order to his favorite people to annihilate the others? Especially if the latter also worships him but only in a different manner?Indeed what if Jesus et al were but wonderful storytellers? The dogmas traditions practices apologetics theology and philosophy we now have for each of the religions that sprouted from their brief lives here on earth mere layers of stories upon stories that has passed on and evolved throughout the thousands of years of history? All our hopes and anger the killings and crimes we've done and are still doing to each other in the name of God based simply on the differences of these tales we grew up with? Can goodreads then become the religion of the future? Do we here create fleeting or permanent gods depending on how long the stories we read move us and stay with us or those we tell move and stay with our readers? Do we worship when we read and act like gods when we tell our stories? Are we all prophets to some degree? When we say how we feel do we say And God said like Abraham Moses Jesus and Muhammad did? Can literacy and the love of the printed and spoken word save us?

    It was fascinating to read this book and Mohammed A Prophet for our time together as they are written from two completely different perspectives on Mohammed Spencer portrays a Mohammed that has inspired generations of hate intolerance and violence while Armstrong portrays somebody with the attributes of Jesus I found them both biased and I suspect the truth is somewhere in the middle of the two opinions but it was refreshing to hear somebody who wasn't scared to death to be politically correct At times it didn't seem possible that the two authors were talking about the same person I think most of the difference was in what stories they told and what stories they didn't tell Armstrong's book is filled with tales of Mohammed's compassion and how he treated his followers while Spencer's book is concerned with stories of his battles his punishments and his vengeance At times I thought Spencer was inflammatory and unfair but there were many times that Armstrong glossed over or dismissed truly worrying episodes in Mohammed's life Reading either one of these books individually I would give two stars but reading them together makes the overall experience worthy of three

  6. John John says:

    If you think Muhammed was a man of peace a man to be admired and a man to be imitated you need to read up on him Muhammed was none of these things The historical record is very clear He was a man of violence expediency and is a man worthy of disdain This is a good extended introduction to Muhammed and Islam For the most part Spencer avoids value judgments on the truthfulness of Islam instead focusing on the ethics of Muhammed and his followers With regard to these he is very harsh and justifiably so

  7. Alexandra Alexandra says:

    What Muslims won't tell you about Muhammad Robert Spencer is excellent on this topic

  8. Johnrh Johnrh says:

    Like his book The Politically Incorrect Guidetm to Islam and the Crusades it is packed with facts the conclusions to draw are your own These are largely uotes and accounts from the uran Sura and hadith The book is largely a fascinating and reasonably brief historical account of the life of Muhammad As a Protestant Westerner and minor history buff I enjoyed it and felt educated by it I was enthralled enough to listen to the 7 hour book within a single 24 hr period Spencer sticks to the facts throughout and lets them speak for themselves Only in the final chapter does he coalesce the various points presented and apply them to our modern world Is 7th century Muhammad a bad example for conduct in the 21st century? My uestion Readsten and decide for yourself I highly recommend this book

  9. CultDoctor CultDoctor says:

    Look at the reviews below that rate this less than three stars They don't even comment on the content and references sited I was very impressed with how meticulously the author referenced assertions and claims that would understandably upset those that follow Muhammad No matter what side of the fence you are on before reading this book or listening to the CD version truth is truth and this author can't change truth Do the research and be informed A fantastic read and listen AN ABSOLUTE MUST READ FOR THOSE WHO CARE ABOUT THE WESTERN WORLD I also liked 'The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam and the Crusades' Semper Fi

  10. Rachel Rachel says:

    I found this book to be well written well researched and factual As a non Muslim I fully anticipated others degrading the author's words but I have been independently studying islam now for several years and there was little presented that I had not come across on my own whether in hadiths or in the uran My experience has been that most people will turn a blind eye or adamantly deny the truth of Islam It is not Islamophobia to be educated and know the teachings of Islam I would highly recommend the book
