WAKE UP DOE-EYED poltically correct fools!!!!! The "Prophet" Mohahmed (or Muhamhed) was likely a psychotic individual who heard voices and saw visions; perhaps he was influenced heavily by the Jewish and Christian religions which gave him the idea of the one God monotheistic precept of those beliefs.
When this "Prophet" walked the Earth circa 600 AD (or 600 CE) his peoples, the Arabs were worshipping all sorts of gods, deities and jinns (= demons, devils - GENIES). One of the Arabic principle deities was the MOON GOD, and today we see that historical vestigial influence of the moon god in their religious symbol of the CRESCENT MOON!!
Well, in short and more to the point (as in sharpened ppoint), the "Prophet" carried on about his one God whom he named ALLAH and Mohahmed went on to spread his belief system, which more than likely caught on with some individuals in a non violent manner. However, even as the number of Allah worshippers grew, there was considerable resistance among many of his own peoples still clinging to their ancient "pagan" beliefs. As well, following the Roman Diaspora in the first century AD, there were many Jews living among the Arabs throughout the Middle East, especially on the Saudi Peninsula, the heartland of the Arab world; when Muhahmed prosletyzed to these peoples some Jews may have been converted peacefully, but many did not.
Because of this resistance, Mohahmed and his loyal followers decided to convert the masses by means of the sword and thus many Jews as well as "infidel" Arabs were cut down with the sword or burned alive - The HOLY WAR or JIHAD was thus created, and therefore those believers of Allah, Islamics (submitters) were now committed to cleansing the Earth of the infidels and nonbelievers - those unwilling to accept Allah as the "ONE TRUE GOD". Of course, under threat of a cruel death, many persons did convert to Islam, but this was though coercion which is NOT EQUAL to conversion by peaceful means.
OK.....to summarize, Islam IS NOT THE RELIGION OF PEACE that it claims to be: TO WIT
There are TEN PILLARS of ISLAM fundamental their belif system THE SIXTH PILLAR IS THE HOLY WAR, sorry, go look it up. ITS TRUE.
Muslims do not drink alcohol. WHY IS THAT YOU ASK. Because Mohahmed decreed that his HOLY WARRIORS NOT DRINK alcohol to keep them awake, sober, and ready at any time to wage Holy War.
I could go on but the annals of recent history contain far too many instances of Islamic "peace": The World Trade Center attack and most recently, the attack carried out in the name of Allah upon innocent bystanders watching the Boston Marathon just to name a very, very few incidents. Got to love those those Muslims. WHY??????
WAKE UP - EVERY BELIEVER OF ISLAM IS SUBJECT TO BEING RADICALIZED including men women, and children. It is the only religion on this planet that incorporates HOLY WAR into the WRIITEN PRECEPTS of their belief system.
I am done - no words of hate, only the cold hard truth, but of course you DOE EYED LIBERAL morons CANNOT HANDLE THE TRUTH and therefore you delude yourselves into placing "COEXIST" bumper stickers on your cars - and of course more and more terrorist acts will most certainly follow as the years go on and we are just supposed to accept this reality. CORRECT?????
