The cult of Muhammad and of Islam is not a religion but a fascist cult. It is supremacist, racist and Jihadic. It merges church and state. Islam negates free-will, rationality, and natural law. 47:4 Thus you are ordered by Allah to continue in carrying out Jihad against the disbelievers till they embrace Islam
Essentially the leadership of Mohammad and his ‘party’ establishment was similar in design and philosophy to that built by the Lenin and Hitler cults. Mohammad did not set up a ‘party’ per se, but his organization of friends, blood relations and supporters which created the inner circle of Islamic control, mimicked the Nazi cult or the Stalin gang. Mohammad’s development of priestly interpretators and guardians of God’s spoken word, hearken back to the mystical paganism of his Arab roots – akin to the cult group that formed around Hitler and Lenin. Like its twins Nazism, and Communism, Islam was and still is a pagan cult.
Mohammad and his gang were essentially criminals and robbers. Anyone who has read the history of Islam and Mohammad knows that there is nothing divine in either. As D.S. Margoliouth states in his book on Muhammad and the rise of Islam:
"Of any moralising or demoralising effect that Muhammad's teaching had upon his followers we cannot say with precision. When he was at the head of the Robber community, it is probable that the demoralising influence began to be felt; it was then that men who had never broken an oath learnt that they might evade their obligations, and that men to whom the blood of their clan had been as their own, began to shed it with impunity in the ‘cause of god’. And that lying and treachery in the cause of Islam received divine approval. It was then too that Moslems became distinguished by the obscenity of their language. It was then too, that the coveting of goods and wives possessed by Non-muslims was avowed without discouragement from the Prophet...."
This passage nicely illustrates the irreligious, criminal, anti-rational, mystical and pagan nature of early Mohammedanism and its organization.
The problem with the entire political ideology of Islam stems from its founder - a man who was not a prophet, had no compassion or love, but was lustful, sinful and violent. Mohammad was no more a God then was Hitler. Born in pagan 6th century Arabia, Mohammad formed his ideology around what he knew in his home city of Mecca – the pagan Arabian moon cult. Like Hitler who took German paganism and pronounced it supreme, or Stalin who rejuvenated Russian nationalism and declared it triumphant, Mohammad took Arab paganism and created a pagan cult destined to rule over the ‘Umma’ [community] of mankind. His doctrine centered on control, war, submission and the unity of Arab pagan tribes in the face of Judaic and Christian competition.
Islam’s pagan roots come directly from Mohammad’s life and his surroundings. Mohammed was born in Mecca in the year 570 A.D. He was orphaned early in his life after his mother died and was raised by his uncle Abu-Talib beginning at age 6. His teen years were spent as a shepherd and an attendant of caravans. At the age of 20 Mohammed was hired by a wealthy woman named Khadija (or Khadeejah) to manage her late husband's caravan business. While in the caravan business Mohammed made many journeys to Syria and Palestine and it was here that he confronted monotheism.
During his many caravan travels Mohammed became acquainted with both Jews and Christians and learnt of their monotheistic belief. To a pagan Arab, a world of ‘one God’ would no doubt be a shocking encounter. It must have moved Mohammad’s mind to consider alternatives to the multi-deity paganism of Arabia and the comparative poverty of his homeland to that of the richer and seemingly more powerful Jews and Christians. However Mohammad’s interpretation of Judaic-Christian scripture and history were almost uniformly wrong. It is probable that like most pagan Arabs of his time Mohammad was illiterate and could not record the exactitudes of what he heard. Reading the Koran and Mohammad’s sayings, especially those regarding the other 2 major religions, reinforces that belief. There is simply no relevance in Mohammad’s ideas regarding what Islam calls its ‘cousin religions’. Like much in the Koran it is gibberish.
Mohammad’s political opportunity arose when he was 25 and married the well-off Khadija. It was after marrying into Khadija’s wealth either through love or by design, that Mohammad became politically motivated. Wealthy and settled he now had some time on his hands to contemplate religion, politics and paganism. It was during this period that he supposedly received some divine guidance from ‘Allah’ on replacing the various pagan cults of Arabia with the one true word of ‘Allah’. Dreams, visitations and images inspired by Allah supposedly convinced him to start his political campaign to eradicate polytheism and institute monotheism.
Mohammad’s unifying culture was of course crass Arab paganism. There is absolutely nothing divine or inspirational in the Koran or Islamic thought. Mohammad’s ‘ideological creation’ was premised on his home town’s existing cult. The Qurash tribe to which Mohammed belonged was in charge of idol worship at the Ka'ba Shrine [a black asteroid stone worshipped as a divine rock]. The chief god of Mohammed's tribe was one of the three sister goddesses called al-Uzza, the youngest of the three daughters of the pre-Islamic Allah and the patron goddess of Mecca. Her name means ‘the mighty one’. The other two were named ‘al-Lat’ and ‘al-Manat’. It is believed that ‘al-llah’ in Mohammed's time before Islam referred to a vague moon god and that Mohammed believed that al-Uzza was a daughter of this ‘al-llah’. Allah was thus common during Mohammed's time to denote a moon cult. Even his own father's name was ‘Abd-Allah’ (or slave of Allah). However, Muslims and Arabs today translate the word Allah as ‘God’. Muslim activists in the West have been using the tactic of claiming that they worship the same god as the Christians in order to gain legitimacy and acceptance. They have been using the name ‘God’ in place of ‘Allah’ in many translations of the Koran. There is however no similarity between the Christian idea of God and the moon cult based invocation of ‘Allah’.
Inspired by his divine dreams and religious spirit, Mohammad through peaceful means had converted about 70 people in Mecca by 622 AD to his concept of Islam [submission to Allah]. He was however driven out of Mecca by those who saw his new theology as a threat to the city’s paganism. After fleeing to Medina Mohammad rejected peaceful methods and turned to violence. Al Dashti, an Iranian Muslim and scholar of Islam states, ‘After the move to Medina….he became a relentless warrior, intent on spreading his religion by the sword, and a scheming founder of a state.’ For Mohammad war was the means to build his own powerful state. Islam is not a religion but a state construct using paganism fused with monotheism as its unifying culture. Using the Medinians and their men, Mohammad made war upon Mecca finally conquering the Meccans in 622 AD at the battle of Badr.
At this crucial battle in which Mohammad gained control of local Meccan and Medina area tribes he, ‘took a handful of gravel when the battle was extremely heated [and] threw it at the faces of the pagans saying 'May Your faces be disfigured.' This battle and Mohammad’s violence during laid the foundation of the Islamic State and made the Muslims a terrifying force of gangsters and opportunists. Islam was built in the fires and blood of war – not in peace and charity. Its ethos is imbued with this martial spirit. After winning the battle of Badr Mohammad and his men spent 3 days killing the prisoners. Then with the Meccan and Medinian tribes under his control he ordered the spread of Islam and its empire by sword, as well as the eradication of his former Jewish allies in Medina and beyond.
From this one key victory the Islamacists swept across Arabia and beyond, fueled by their absolute paganism [one word, one Allah, one Mohammad], which created an esprit de corps and ruthlessness that other tribes and cities could not withstand. University of Chicago professor Fred Donner, in his book ‘The Early Islamic Conquests’, theorizes that there may be something intrinsic to Islam that spurs a conquering attitude: "[T]here is the possibility that the ideological message of Islam itself filled some or all of the ruling elite with the notion that they had an essentially religious duty to expand the political domain of the Islamic state as far as practically possible; that is, the elite may have organized the Islamic conquest movement because they saw it as their divinely ordained mission to do so."
That Mohammad was a man and not a divine being is beyond doubt. He was also a deeply flawed man and hardly a symbol of good religious teachings. He was violent, lecherous, spiteful, adulterous, and conniving. He was also like Hitler, and to a lesser extent Stalin, probably quite mad. Much of the Koran and the so-called teachings of Mohammad are revelations that would embarrass a drunken psychopath. Mohammad had revelations which can be read in the gibberish that makes up the Koran including: sanctioning highway robbery; favoring war against unbelievers [until there was no religion other than Allah’s]; promising paradise and 72 nubile virgins in return for those killed in jihad; Allah’s approval of his taking 20 % of all booty captured in war, [100 % in peace]; Allah consenting to his having sex with a 9 year old girl; Allah’s support in practicing adultery and polygamy [even with married women]; Allah’s agreement in destroying Jewish and Christian villages and trade caravans; Allah’s permission to engage in slave trading. Many more malicious revelations could be listed but the above are some examples of ‘divine’ revelations that Allah [Arabic word meaning the moon], gave unto Mohammad.
As one would expect when dealing with a deranged politician revelations would miraculously occur when Mohammad wanted something or needed to distance himself from crimes past or current. Any sane person listening to such nonsense would declare the speaker insane. Here are two sura’s from the Koran that illustrate the nonsense such revelations entailed:
"Warfare is ordained for you, though it is hateful unto you; but it may happen that you hate a thing which is good for you and it may happen that you love a thing which is bad for you. Allah knoweth, you knew not."
Here Mohammed the politician completely removes all blame from himself, for having started war between Medina and Mecca. The most insidious implication of this verse is that Allah justifies the murder by Mohammed of innocent Meccans. Mohammed also implies that warfare – though her personally lead 68 military missions - is hateful to him, but he participates in it because Allah forces him to! Much like Hitler’s ravings that destroying Jews was necessary since Fate [capital F] demanded it, Mohammad the politician justifies killing and war by blaming ‘Allah’. How convenient.
"They question you (O Mohammed) with regard to warfare in the sacred month. Say: Warfare therein is a great transgression but to turn men from the way of Allah and to disbelieve in Him and the inviolable place of worship and to expel its people thence is a greater transgression, for persecution is worse than killing"
Allah is clearly saying that to kill during the Muslim sacred month of Rejeb is a grave offence. In fact all pagan Arabs declared truces during their holy periods to allow free travel, worship, trade and general peace. Mohammad broke this taboo by raiding Meccan trade caravans and butchering innocents. To justify this crime Mohammed comes up with the excuse that since the people killed were unbelievers, it was perfectly fine and did not transgress Allah’s wishes. Since the innocent Meccans did not believe in Mohammed's version of God, they were free to be killed during the holy period. This sounds like a tolerant and peaceful prophet does it not?
In this regard, without going into an extended discussion of Jesus Christ [was he a man? did he exist? where is the proof? etc.], it is clear that the example given by Mohammad was the exact polar opposite of the example set by the figure of Christ. While silly books and listings of history’s greatest men usually rank Mohammad and Christ side by side, the comparison is immoral and wrong. Christ was a completely different phenomenon and set of living ideas than Mohammad. Christ was not violent, bloodthirsty, lustful, deceitful, nor did he engage in plunder, rape, destruction, war, or paganism. Christ taught the golden rule [do unto others as you would have done unto you], charity, love and aiding the poor and powerless. As one commentator eulogized:
“Christ ministered to the downtrodden, the outcast, and the poor. He himself was the poorest of the poor, as he reminded us: ‘Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.” [Luke 9:58]. He was a homeless man. Again, the life of Muhammad stands in marked contrast to the man from Nazareth, for at the age of 25 [some say 28] he married Khadija, a 40-year-old, well to do Arabic widow. Later, when he began leading armed expeditions against various tribal groups, he amassed considerable wealth, much of it in the form of booty, of which he commonly took one fifth.’
It is clear that what Mohammad taught and more importantly what he did, were almost the opposite of what Christ preached and what Christ did. Christ was a missionary, aiding the poor, the sick, the female, and the enslaved. He never engaged in conflict, war, or violence, nor did he create polygamous marriages, raid caravans or torture ‘non-believers’, take slaves, or butcher those who opposed his authority. All of these things and more, Mohammad did.
Mohammad was not a man of God but a political leader who used theology to conquer Arabia and bring various tribes under his control. His rule was spread not by love or compassion but purely by killing and war. As one 18th century Muslim scholar commented: “No two personages ever appeared in the world more perfect and absolute contrasts to each other than the founder of the Turkish [Islam] and Christian religion. Christ was pure and Unspotted in the whole of his deportment….but Mohammad was a sink of iniquity, lust, and ambition, if we listen to his friends. Jesus employed no weapons in defense of his mission but the artillery of reason and argument, joined to the impetuous influence of stupendous miracles, while Mohammad could no nothing without the energy of the sword.”
Islam’s aggression is manifest today in terror and repression, but it has been attacking the West and Christianity for 1400 years. Mohammad’s great innovation was not religious or spiritual. After all who can point out any Islamic doctrine to compare to the golden rule? No one can because none exists. Mohammad’s innovation was fusing paganism with monotheism and then using war to destroy all opposing philosophies including destroying cities and towns that were pagan, Jewish or Christian. Mohammad’s new monotheistic paganism was basically a response to the monotheistic religions and powerful Jewish and Christian trading centers that were developing rapidly in the 6th century Arabian peninsula. As Lenin, Stalin and Hitler would do 13 centuries later, the cult and ideology gave cover to what was essentially a political construct built on war, plunder and power.
Much like the writings of Hitler, Lenin or Stalin, the Koran and Suras are suffused with Mohammad’s justifications for war, incest, rape, murder, theft, terror, and destruction. Divine revelations conveniently remove the blame from Mohammand’s twitching bloody hands and those of his followers, and places guilt upon the mysterious ‘Allah’. What criminal would not want to say in court, ‘Sorry your honor I was forced to commit the crime – Allah made me do it.’? Thus the ‘robber’ culture had a great appeal to 7th century pagan Arabs – poor, illiterate, brutal, confused, and resentful of Jewish trade and civil success. Islam is nothing more than a pagan cult with bizarre justifications for anti-religious criminal behavior. No wonder the robber culture of Arabia so enthusiastically embraced Mohammad.
Modern day apologists and Time magazine editors should maybe do some primary research on Mohammad before pronouncing that Islam is holy and peaceful. What is stated above is but a mere tithe of what could be written about Mohammad and his devilish life. For my part I put much more faith in minds such as that possessed by Alexis de Tocqueville, the 19th century American interpreter and political scientist par excellence, then in modern day liberal media personalities; “I studied the Koran a great deal…..few religions in the world as deadly to men as that of Muhammad. As far as I can see, it is the principal cause of the decadence so visible today in the Muslim world, and though less absurd than the polytheism of old, its social and political tendencies are in my opinion infinitely more to be feared, and I therefore regard it as a form of decadence rather than a form of progress in relation to paganism itself.’
Dante as well saw Mohammad as the ultimate false prophet and ungodly man. Churchill early in his career saw the degenerate and violent nature of Islam and its ‘votaries’ and the warlike hatred that Islam created. These analysts amongst many others were far clearer in their thinking than the post-modern relativists that populate our political culture today, and far more accurate in depicting the threat to the West presented by pagan Islam.
