Was Muhammad insane?

THE FUNDAMENTAL PROBLEM OF ISLAM is the belief that God talked to Muhammad and dictated the contents of the Koran to him. Muslims are indoctrinated into believing the Koran is God’s word, and so they act on the numerous incitements to violence that they find in it.

What they find in the Koran came from the mind of Muhammad, and for insight into the mental condition of this “prophet,” consider Chapter 33 of his Koran, entitled “The Confederates.” This is one of the chapters Muhammad composed in Yathrib (later called Medina) where he fled after his Meccan compatriots realized they needed to kill him to preserve their way of life.

The chapter is like a wild theme park ride that races in and out of numerous topics. In the 73 verses that make up the chapter, Muhammad covers the following in the God-voice he used for the Koran: He recaps a recent battle with the Meccans and excoriates people who were afraid to fight and die for him; he gloats about his extermination of the men and boys of one of the Jewish tribes of Yathrib, the confiscation of their property, and the enslavement of their women and children; he authorizes himself to take as many wives as he likes, permits himself to marry the wife of his adopted son, forbids himself from taking any more wives after he has taken as many as he likes, but allows himself sex slaves.

EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT! MUHAMMAD STEALS THE WIFE OF HIS ADOPTED SON AND THREATENS TO KILL HIS CRITICS!

Everything Muhammad did was scandalous. He sometimes even shocked his own people, such as when he took the wife of his adopted son and added her to his ever-expanding harem. If he lived today, his behavior would be fodder for every tabloid on the planet. We’re giving it tabloid treatment as the hottest news item of the day. This story is taken from the book, It’s All About Muhammad, A Biography of the World’s Most Notorious Prophet:

NOT LONG AFTER THE EXPULSION OF THE NADIR JEWS, MUHAMMAD
shocked even true believers by marrying the wife of his adopted son Zayd, breaking an Arab taboo and giving the “hypocrites” ammunition to discredit him. The matter quieted down only after he threatened to strip his critics of the protection of the shahada and kill them. Read more »

What did Muhammad and the people around him look like?

IN THE ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS OF ISLAM one can find sketchy descriptions of Muhammad and his closest people — the elite of his companions as they are tagged in the literature. Nothing says it better than a photograph, but since photography had not been invented in Muhammad’s time, we thought we might give an idea about how these folks looked by showing a photograph of similar people.

These similar people were those who surrounded Pancho Villa, the Mexican bandit/revolutionary who led his forces against federal armies during the Mexican Revolution. Villa left behind a group photo that can be of assistance in the matter of visualizing Muhammad and his associates. Read more »

Muhammad’s attack on Khaybar: What is past is prologue

IN VIDEOS AND NEWS REPORTS related to the Middle East, one can often find this chant: “Khaybar, khaybar ya yahud, jaish muhammad saya’ud,” meaning, “Khaybar, Khaybar, O Jews, Muhammad’s army will return.”

The chant means little to people who are unfamiliar with the history of Muhammad’s religion, yet it needs to be understood because it is a chilling reminder of one of the major atrocities he committed against the Jews when he attacked their oasis of Khaybar. People who chant these words today do so to warn Jews that they intend to repeat Muhammad’s horrors against them — and everyone else who is not a believer for that matter. Read more »
