Muslim Behaviour Explained…(Statistically):
Posted on October 5th, 2012

Dr. Hammond’s doctorate is in Theology. 
He was born in Capetown in 1960, grew up in Rhodesia and converted to Christianity in 1977.

Here is a perspective by Dr. Peter Hammond

Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult.
In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life. 

Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components.
The religious component is a beard for all of the other components. 

Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges. 

When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in as well.. 
Here’s how it works: 

As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens.

This is the case in: 
United States — Muslim 0..6% 
Australia — Muslim 1.5% 
Canada — Muslim 1.9% 
China — Muslim 1.8% 
Italy — Muslim 1.5% 
Norway — Muslim 1.8% 

At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.This is happening in: 

Denmark — Muslim 2% 
Germany — Muslim 3.7% 
United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7% 
Spain — Muslim 4% 
Thailand — Muslim 4.6% 

From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.
For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims.         They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply.This is occurring in: 

France — Muslim 8% 
Philippines — 5% 
Sweden — Muslim 5% 
Switzerland — Muslim 4.3% 
The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5% 
Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8% 

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamist is to establish Sharia law over the entire world. 

When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions.
In Paris , we are already seeing car-burnings.
Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam , with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam.Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections, in: 

Guyana — Muslim 10% 
India — Muslim 13.4% 
Israel — Muslim 16% 
Kenya — Muslim 10% 
Russia — Muslim 15% 

After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:

Ethiopia — Muslim 32..8% 

At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and on-going militia warfare, such as in: 

Bosnia — Muslim 40% 
Chad — Muslim 53.1% 
Lebanon — Muslim 59.7% 

From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels, such as in: 

Albania — Muslim 70% 
Malaysia — Muslim 60.4% 
Qatar — Muslim 77.5% 
Sudan — Muslim 70% 

After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in: 

Bangladesh — Muslim 83% 
Egypt — Muslim 90% 
Gaza — Muslim 98.7% 
Indonesia — Muslim 86.1% 
Iran — Muslim 98% 
Iraq — Muslim 97% 
Jordan — Muslim 92% 
Morocco — Muslim 98.7% 
Pakistan — Muslim 97% 
Palestine — Muslim 99% 
Syria — Muslim 90% 
Tajikistan — Muslim 90% 
Turkey — Muslim 99.8% 
United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96% 

100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace.. Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in: 

Afghanistan — Muslim 100% 
Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100% 
Somalia — Muslim 100% 
Yemen — Muslim 100% 

Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons. 

‘Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life.
It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father ;
my family against my cousins and the clan ;
the clan against the tribe ;
he tribe against the world, and all of us against the infidel”. —
Leon Uris, ‘The Haj’ 

It is important to understand that in some countries, with well under 100% Muslim populations, such as France, the minority Muslim populations live in ghettos, within which they are 100% Muslim, and within which they live by Sharia Law.
The national police do not even enter these ghettos. 
There are no national courts, nor schools, nor non-Muslim religious facilities.
In such situations, Muslims do not integrate into the community at large.
The children attend madrases. They learn only the Koran.
To even associate with an infidel is a crime punishable with death.
Therefore, in some areas of certain nations, Muslim Imams and extremists exercise more power than the national average would indicate. 

Today’s 1.5 billion Muslims make up 22% of the world’s population.

But their birth rates dwarf the birth rates of Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, and all other believers .. Muslims will exceed 50% of the world’s population by the end of this century.

    100% TRUE!

    There are good and bad apples in EVERY basket, but this analysis is EXCELLENT.

    Bangladesh, Maldives, Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, Burma, Thailand. This is already happening in EVERY neighbourhood of SL and lets not fool ourselves it will not happen in SL.

    Govt of SL should have made an OFFICIAL protest to the govt of Bangladesh and Maldives over attacks on Buddhists. It happening just a week after the President laid the foundation for a Buddhist University in India is shameful on the part of Bangladeshi govt.

    Forewarned is forearmed.

    Thank you.

  3. Dham Says:

    What a stupid analysis by a Zionist and the first comment by Lankaweb Zionist !

    Same can be written in the other way around ( except China where ther is another Dhamma called communism invented by a Zionist).
    If you list suing the Zionist influence index (ZII), Muslims are supressed and Zionism governs, you hear there slogans 24 hours in media. There is no democracy – but slavary to materilism.

    “Our IGNORANCE of the TRUTH is our DEMISE”. 100% agreed. We have Buddhism, not need to be follow any other system or religions, Zionism, Islam or even Christianity which essetially is Islam with barbarism and cruelity removed to a certain extent.

  4. Leela Says:

    There are no Muslim extremists; they either good Muslims or bad Muslims.

    The Koran condemns all non-Muslims – Christians and Jews as well as those who worship many gods and no gods. First ten surahs in the Koran is sufficient to prove few nice verses were contradicted and replaced, by a staggering number of nasty ones. So, good Islamist have to follow every word of Allah including all those nasty verses, else he is castigated as a bad Muslim.

    Islam makes “good” Muslims bad people and “bad” Muslims good people. The Koran defines good Muslims is a Jihadist, a man who leaves his home, sacrificing his wealth and life, fighting in Allah’s Cause. And Allah says they will be rewarded with stolen booty if they survive or with a heavenly bordello if they die.

    Bad Muslims, on the other hand, are peaceful. Allah calls them “hypocrites” because they are unwilling to fight. He even says that peaceful Muslims are “the most vile of creatures” and that hell’s hottest fires await them.

    If you are a peace-loving Muslim, your god hates you.

  5. mjaya Says:

    We should campaign against allowing Muslims to practice polygamy in Sri Lanka.

    They do so to increase their population and feed their jihadi Madrassas. They also create plenty of drug peddlers and criminals.

    BAN POLYGAMY IN SRI LANKA FOR EVERYONE!!!!! NOT ONLY NON-MUSLIMS.

  6. mjaya Says:

    The population growth trap

    Two Parents -> One Child
    Four Grandparents -> Two Parents -> One Child

    The result: the next generation will have half the manpower entering the workforce, more aging people to take care of and lesser people to sustain the population and culture.

    On the other hand,
    1 Muslim + 4 Wifes -> Plenty of children

    The result: an unsustainable number of young people, unemployment, welfare parasites, plenty of young criminals, plenty of recruits for Jihad, overwhelming the non-Muslim population. By the beginning of the 20th century Lebanon was 80% Christian, today it is less than 30%. It happened in Kossovo, so we have to take action fast!

    The worst thing is that we don’t see the effects of this until it is too late.

  7. Nalliah Thayabharan Says:

    In Saudi Arabia there is no Church, Synagogue, Buddhist nor Hindu Temple is allowed. Wahhabism (pseudo Salafism) is NOT a religion of tolerance. Wahhabism provides the fundamental base for Jihadism which causes unending strife and misery. It is not Iran that should be bombed. In Iran there are still Jews living there and praying in their Synagogues. Muammar al-Gaddafi respected Christian and Jewish religions and their Churches, Synagogues in Libya but American, English, French, Saudi and Qatari financed terrorists destroyed Churches, Synagogues recently. Buddhist Temples including Bamiyan Buddha statues have survived in Islamic countries for centuries, but they could not survive under the Wahhabism.
    Washington and London are protecting Wahhabi extremists. In Syria Christians and their Churches were safe before the Westerners began sending their Wahhabi fanatics to kill innocent Syrian civilians.
    In Bosnia and Kosovo, under the guise of “reconstruction aid”, Saudi Arabia, Kuwaiti, and other Wahhabi organizations have demolished and removed major Islamic monuments (survived attacks by Serb and Croat militias) which were created by Muslims with an Islamic culture and tradition stretching back to 14th century long before Ibn Abd al-Wahhab made his 18th century alliance with the warlord Ibn Saud who founded the Saudi dynasty – House of Saud.
    The Wahhabis, and the British, supported the warlord Ibn Saud and legitimized the Saudi dynasty and its struggle against the Ottoman Empire. Since then the House of Saud always supports Britain and its allies including USA and Israel. When the House of Saud took control of the Holy Places in Arabia from the Ottoman Empire with British support they destroyed 15 centuries of Islamic heritage, including the desecration of the tombs of the wives and companions of the Holy Prophet, in the iconoclastic imposition of Wahhabism. The iconoclastic Wahhabi House of Saud gradually destroyed several holy shrines, including historical places of Islam from the Prophet’s house in Mecca and companion Ayoob Ansari’s house in Medina and turned them into apartments blocks and hotels. They also turned the site of tthe Prophet’s wives’ houses into a parking lot.
    The Wahhabi-backed House of Saud took full control of the Hijaz, Mecca and Medina, in 1924 and established the modern state of Saudi Arabia, with Wahhabism as its official religion. Since then the House of Saud has promoted Wahhabism as normative Islam throughout the Islamic world. The House of Saud was consolidated on massive oil wealth and have spent huge sums of money building Wahhabi mosques, publishing Wahhabi literature and funding Wahhabi organizations world-wide. Today, with Wahhabi control of the Holy Places intact, virtually every aspect and corner of modern Islam has been penetrated by Wahhabi influence through the agency of the House of Saud.
    Through the control of the Hajj – the beating heart of Islam – and through their vigorous publication and propaganda means, almost all the Muslims are infected with Wahhabism to some extent.
    Present Zionist and Wahhabi doctrines foresee the fall of Iran, Belarus, and, ultimately Russia and China, after the fall of Damascus, to the combined forces of NATO and the Saudi- and Qatari-backed Wahhabis, who make up a large portion of the anti Syrian movement.
    Sufism is an entirely indigenous Islamic resistance movement to fundamentalism an throughout South Asia including Sri Lanka for several centuries, the spiritual tradition of Sufism is vigorously present. Across Pakistan, the religious tenor has been correspondingly radicalised: the tolerant, Sufi-minded Barelvi form of Islam is now overtaken by the rise of the more hardline and politicized Wahhabism. Remember Sri Lankan cricketers were ambushed in Lahore by armed Wahhabi Jihadists.
    Wahhabi ideology of Islam reached Sri Lanka in the 1940s, but was not accepted by Sri Lankan Muslims. Later oil rich Saudi Arabia greatly began to penetrate Sri Lanka’s adherents to Islam in 70’s., With the increased funding by the Saudi Arabia with their petro dollars, Wahhabi followers have increased and are now responsible for the sectarian clashes that are slowly increasing among Sri Lankan Muslims especially in the Eastern Province. It is sadly true but there is a rising trend of Wahhabi Jihadism in Sri Lanka. Wahhabis are trying to take the peaceful Islamic community in Sri Lanka down the path of extremism and violence. Wahhabi fundamentalism has advanced so quickly in Sri Lanka partly because the House of Saud has financed the building of so many madrasas,The Wahhabis have already created deep divisions in among Sri Lankan Muslims and have formed gangs that intimidate moderate Muslims who speak out against Wahhabi fanatics. Like the Christian fundamentalist groups using NGOs to convert innocent poor families to Christianity, Wahhabis help poor Muslim families by providing cash and other material benefits to convert the innocent poor Muslim families into their cult. By building churches and madrasas all over the world to harvest the poor souls is truely very clever idea. Wahhabis even use Sri Lankan Government Cultural and Religious Affairs Departments to continue their nefarious activities.
    Wahhabis claim that moderate Sri Lankan Muslims do not know anything of Islam and only themselves are the real scholars of Islam. But Wahhabis preach only “dawah” of hatred, terror and murder. To understand the deranged mentality of Wahhabis look at the “fitna” the Wahhabis have caused in Pakistan. The Government authorities must investigate every Wahhabi school and propagandist in the Eastern Province to make sure they are not preaching things that are inimical to Sri Lanka. Saudi Arabia remains a critical financial support base for al-Qaida, Taliban, Lashkar-e-Taiba and other Wahhabi terrorist groups. Saudi Arabia spends about 90 billion US dollar annually to spread Wahhabism world-wide. Scholarships are offered to our Muslims youths to go to Wahhabi institutions in Saudi Arabia. But those who completed their Wahhabi studies returned to Sri Lanka and propagating Wahhabism now.
    Wahhabis have infiltrated Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation (SLBC). Almost all the participants and staffers in the Muslim section of Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation are Wahabis and use the State radio to propagate Wahhabism. Not only Wahhabis run private unlicensed radio stations in the Eastern Province, also armed Wahhabis often attack mosques and leaders of the Sufi sect.
    Wahhabism in Srilanka is headquartered in Kattankudi is a new politico-religious movement that is sweeping the Eastern province of Sri Lanka with more than sixty Muslim Wahhabi organizations helping in propagating the movement throughout Sri Lanka and has raced ahead and taken control of the Jihadist and Al Fatah groups in Sri Lanka under their wings. Wahhabism is imported and planted in the midst of peace-loving Muslims in Sri Lanka, mostly through the lavish inflow of Saudi money pumped into Sri Lanka has overtaken other Islamic organizations by threats, intimidation and coercion.
    Remember Colonel Lateef was gun down by the prominent Wahhabi militant `Police` Faiz in Oddamavadi. CIA introduced Wahhabism in Sri Lanka through Saudi Arabia as a means of countering the growing support for Iran and Sufism among the Sri Lankan Muslims since CIA had calculated that Wahhabism would be an effective rival theology to prevent the spread of Iranian influence in Sri Lanka.
    Clashes between Sufis and Wahhabi Muslims in Kattankudi and in Oddamavadi occured on a regular basis due to the conflict of beliefs between both religious theologies. In October 2004 similar clashes occurred in Kattankudi and more than 200 homes of Sufi followers were burnt down by Wahhabi Jihadists.
    One of the Sufi leaders Abdul Payilvan died in Colombo was buried at in Kattankudi the next day. Wahhabi Muslims observed a hartal and demanded the removal of the body from the burial grounds. Wahhabi Muslims claim Kattankudy soil is sacred and bodies belonging to those who preach views contradictory to Wahhabism should not be buried there. Wahhabis demanded that the body of Abdul Payilvan, who is from Maruthamunai in the Ampara district, should be exhumed and buried elsewhere.
    Wahhabis had dug up the buried body of another Sufi Muslim from Mosque burial grounds and dumped the body on a local road as an act of protest. Kattankudi Police recovered the body, re-buried it in the original burial ground and guarded burial ground for few days.
    In Kattankudi, the hatred between Wahhabis and Sufis has widened in the last few years and has grown in intensity, left many injured, and caused damage to several houses and vehicles.
    Saudi agents have successfully penetrated the Eastern province Muslims social fabric and have managed to defeat the Sufism in their game. Due to the training afforded by the House of Saud now the Wahhabis have prevailed over the Sufis. The Muslims in Sri Lanka have been subdued due to the Wahhabi influence while Buddhists have been agitating for the release of Rizana Naffek – teenage housemaid from Muthur who was sentenced to death by a Wahhabi Sharia Court in Saudi Arabia.

    The House of Saud pretending to be the leaders of the Islam promote their Wahhabi ideology world-wide. The result has been the birth of al-Qaida, Taliban, Lashkar-e-Taiba and other Wahhabi terrorist groups which are killing Sunni and Shia Muslims alike in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    Wahhabism has been taking roots in Maldives from the days of Maumoon Abdul Gayoom. Abandoning its tolerant, syncretic brand of Islam, Maldives now moves towards an intolerant Wahhabi society.

    al-Qaida, Taliban, Lashkar-e-Taiba are overseen by the CIA and Mossad who want to destabilize countries that are not friendly to them. Because the House of Saud depends on the Americans for its security it always obeys American orders. The constant demonization of Iran and now the war against Syrian leader Bashar Al-Assad confirms a perception that Western Countries have joined with the Wahhabis in the Wahhabis’ war on the Shia. Wahhabi Jihadism remains a long-term security risk to the civilized world. In particular, through the spread of Wahhabi education in tens of thousands of religious schools world-wide, the practitioners of Wahhabism are breeding tens of millions of youth who are certain to remain outside the productive economy, and as a consequence, seethe with resentment and anger against the rest of society.

    Even the forced exodus of the Hindu Pandit community from the Kashmir Valley in India during the early 1990s, and the destruction of several Hindu and Sikh temples by the Wahhabi Jihadists in Kashmir, failed to slow down the volume of laudatory coverage of what were portrayed Wahhabi Jihadists as freedom fighters battling cruel Indian Army in Jammu and Kashmir State by the Western media. The “Kashmir Model” of using the language of democracy and human rights to win Western support, even while adhering to a contrary policy in practice was widely used to topple Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi. Wahhabis hated Muammar al-Gaddafi for the fact that he ruled Libya, with no quarter given to Wahhabi demands as the imposition of Sharia law or the banning of women’s dress other than the abaya. After Muammar al-Gaddafi was defeated and killed, Wahhabi Jihadists who took over Libya as a result of huge help from Nicholas Sarkozy and David Cameron have lost no time in imposing a Wahhabi version of Sharia law in Libya and in killing and jailing those who disagree with their extremist world-view. Fortunately for them, Western media channels that were once filled with news about Libya under Muammar al-Gaddafi are now silent about the immense human rights violations taking place in Libya after its “liberation” in 2011.

    Seeing the success of such a pitch in Libya, Wahhabi Jihadists against the Syrian leader Bashar Al-Assad, have begun cultivating the Western media and public opinion, the way the Wahhabi Jihadists in Kashmir used to do in the 1990s.

    So extreme has the identification with such elements become, that even the largest Western media outlets accept without question such “facts” as that Syrian leader Bashar Al-Assad bombed his own troops and facilities in order “to blame it on the insurgents.” Since the armed uprising by Wahhabi Jihadists began in Syria several thousand members of the Syrian security forces and their family members have been killed by the Wahhabi insurgents, who themselves have lost thousands of their own.

    However, those relying on Western media are told that every such death has been caused by the Syrian security forces, ignoring the deadly violence that is being unleashed in Syria by groups of armed Wahhabi mobs.

    Today in Syria, women can dress as they please. Were the Wahhabi Jihadists to take control, this freedom might soon be replaced with the obligation to wear the full veil. Already in Egypt and in Tunisia, the secular ethos of the country is rapidly giving way to Wahhabism.

    While Western countries are opposed to Wahhabi Jihadism and Sharia law in their own countries, in the Arab countries they favor Wahhabi Jihadism over those who are secular. The result is a galloping Wahhabism and its Sharia law across the Arab countries.

    Since the Western countries subterfuge to destabilize Sri Lanka, by surreptitiously supporting the LTTE failed, now the Western countries will promote Wahhabi Jihadism to cause strife and trouble to destabilize Sri Lanka . Wahhabi followers – al-Qaida, Taliban, Lashkar-e-TaibaTaliban and other Wahhabi terrorist groups – have caused untold misery in several countries including Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. Sri Lanka appears to be their next target. The Sri Lankan government must take immediate strict measures to control Wahhabi organizations and ban them. Wahhabis have already built several illegal Mosques in Sri lanka using Saudi Arabia’s petro dollar. The overwhelming peace loving Muslims of Sri Lanka will extend their support to the government in this matter. As the Wahhabis are even capable of starting ethnic riots between the peaceful Sinhalese and the Muslims, the Sri Lankan government must not be lethargic on this matter.

    All credit for Mr Dham’s good transformation goes to Mr Lorenzo.

    He was bashing Islam and complaining about Islam spreading in Nugegoda, Maharagama, Dehiwala, Piliyandala. Now he try to save it. Very good.

    Mr Thayabaran has made a good point.

    Most Muslims in Srilanka are peaceful. They don’t want Wahabism. But I have to agree it is spreading like wildfire supported by Saudi money.

    I don’t think religious marriage of many women is bad. It prevents men from seeking sex outside marriage.

  9. HussainFahmy Says:

    THE TECHNOLOGICAL COMPETENCY OF A CAR IS NOT JUDGED BY IT’S DRIVER. LET’S JUDGE THE MESSAGE OF ISLAM NOT BY THE PEOPLE WHO PRACTICES IT. BUT BY THE ESSENCE OF ITS MESSAGE. THAT IS THERE IS ONE GOD, ONE HUMANKIND. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS WAHHABI, SUFI OR ANY OTHER. THESE ARE ALL MAN MADE TO DIVIDE AND CONQUER. THE ISLAM THAT WAS REVEALED TO MUHAMMED (PBUH), IS THE CONTINUATION AND CULMINATION OF ALL THE PRECEDING REVEALED RELIGIONS AND HENCE IT IS FOR ALL TIMES AND ALL PEOPLES. THIS STATUS OF ISLAM IS SUSTAINED BY GLARING FACTS. FIRSTLY, THERE IS NO OTHER REVEALED BOOK EXTENT IN THE SAME FORM AND CONTENT AS IT WAS REVEALED. SECONDLY, NO OTHER REVEALED RELIGION HAS ANY CONVINCING CLAIM TO PROVIDE GUIDANCE IN ALL WALKS OF HUMAN LIFE FOR ALL TIMES. BUT ISLAM ADDRESSES HUMANITY AT LARGE AND OFFERS BASIC GUIDANCE REGARDING ALL HUMAN PROBLEMS. MOREOVER, IT HAS WITHSTOOD THE TEST OF FOURTEEN HUNDRED YEARS AND HAS ALL THE POTENTIALITIES OF ESTABLISHING AN IDEAL SOCIETY AS IT DID UNDER THE LEADERSHIP OF THE LAST PROPHET MUHAMMED (PBUH).

    IT WAS A MIRACLE THAT PROPHET MUHAMMED (PBUH) COULD WIN EVEN HIS TOUGHEST ENEMIES TO THE FOLD OF ISLAM WITHOUT ADEQUATE MATERIAL RESOURCES. WORSHIPERS OF IDOLS, BLIND FOLLOWERS OF THE WAYS OF FOREFATHERS PROMOTERS OF TRIBAL FEUDS, ABUSERS OF HUMAN DIGNITY AND BLOOD, BECAME THE MOST DISCIPLINED NATION UNDER THE GUIDANCE OF ISLAM AND ITS PROPHET (PBUH). ISLAM OPENED BEFORE THEM VISTAS OF SPIRITUAL HEIGHTS AND HUMAN DIGNITY BY DECLARING RIGHTEOUSNESS AS THE SOLE CRITERION OF MERIT AND HONOUR. ISLAM SHAPED THEIR SOCIAL, CULTURAL, MORAL AND COMMERCIAL LIFE WITH BASIC LAWS AND PRINCIPLES WHICH ARE MOST IN CONFORMITY WITH HUMAN NATURE AND HENCE APPLICABLE IN ALL TIMES AS HUMAN NATURE DOES NOT CHANGE.

    IT IS SO UNFORTUNATE THAT THE CHRISTIAN WEST INSTEAD OF SINCERELY TRYING TO UNDERSTAND THE PHENOMENAL SUCCESS OF ISLAM DURING ITS EARLIER TIME, CONSIDERED IT AS A RIVAL RELIGION. DURING THE CENTURIES OF THE CRUSADES THIS TREND GAINED MUCH FORCE AND IMPETUS AND HUGE LITERATURE WAS PRODUCED TO TARNISH THE IMAGE OF ISLAM. BUT ISLAM HAS BEGUN TO UNFOLD ITS GENUINENESS TO THE MODERN SCHOLARS WHOSE BOLD AND OBJECTIVE OBSERVATIONS ON ISLAM BELIE ALL THE CHARGES LEVELED AGAINST IT BY THE SO-CALLED UNBIASED ORIENTALISTS.

    HERE WE FURNISH SOME OBSERVATIONS ON ISLAM BY GREAT AND ACKNOWLEDGED NON-MUSLIM SCHOLARS OF MODERN TIME. TRUTH NEEDS NO ADVOCATES TO PLEAD ON ITS BEHALF. BUT THE PROLONGED MALICIOUS PROPAGANDA AGAINST ISLAM HAS CREATED GREAT CONFUSION EVEN IN THE MINDS OF FREE AND OBJECTIVE THINKERS.

    IF GREATNESS OF PURPOSE, SMALLNESS OF MEANS, AND ASTOUNDING RESULTS ARE THE THREE CRITERIA OF HUMAN GENIUS, WHO COULD DARE TO COMPARE ANY GREAT MAN IN MODERN HISTORY WITH MUHAMMED? THE MOST FAMOUS MEN CREATED ARMS, LAWS AND EMPIRES ONLY. THEY FOUNDED, IF ANYTHING AT ALL, NO MORE THAN MATERIAL POWERS WHICH OFTEN CRUMBLED AWAY BEFORE THEIR EYES. THIS MAN MOVED NOT ONLY ARMIES, LEGISLATIONS, EMPIRES, PEOPLES AND DYNASTIES, BUT MILLIONS OF MEN IN ONE-THIRD OF THE THEN INHABITED WORLD; AND MORE THAN THAT, HE MOVED THE ALTARS, THE GODS, THE RELIGIONS, THE IDEAS, THE BELIEFS AND SOULS ….. HIS FORBEARANCE IN VICTORY, HIS AMBITION, WHICH WAS ENTIRELY DEVOTED TO ONE IDEA AND IN NO MANNER STRIVING FOR AN EMPIRE; HIS ENDLESS PRAYERS, HIS MYSTIC CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD, HIS DEATH AND HIS TRIUMPH AFTER DEATH; ALL THESE ATTEST NOT TO AN IMPORTANT BUT TO A FIRM CONVICTION WHICH GAVE HIM THE POWER TO RESTORE A DOGMA. THIS DOGMA WAS TWO FOLD, THE UNITY OF GOD AND THE IMMATERIALITY OF GOD; THE FORMER TELLING WHAT GOD IS, THE LATTER TELLING WHAT GOD IS NOT; THE ONE OVERTHROWING FALSE GODS WITH THE SWORD, THE OTHER STARTING AN IDEA WITH THE WORDS.

    PHILOSOPHER, ORATOR, APOSTLE, LEGISLATOR, WARRIOR, CONQUEROR OF IDEAS, RESTORER OF RATIONAL DOGMAS, OF A CULT WITHOUT IMAGES; THE FOUNDER OF TWENTY TERRESTRIAL EMPIRES AND OF ONE SPIRITUAL EMPIRE, THAT IS MUHAMMED. AS REGARDS ALL STANDARDS BY WHICH HUMAN GREATNESS MAY BE MEASURED, WE MANY WELL ASK, IS THERE ANY MAN GREATER THAN HE?

AND ALTHOUGH IN WHAT I PUT TO YOU I SHALL SAY MANY THINGS WHICH MAY BE FAMILIAR TO MANY, YET I MYSELF FEEL WHENEVER I RE-READ THEM, A NEW WAY OF ADMIRATION, A NEW SENSE OF REVERENCE FOR THAT MIGHTY ARABIAN TEACHER.

BUT IF IT IS GOD YOU WORSHIPED, HE LIVES FOR EVER’.

  10. Lorenzo Says:

    As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens.

    SL during kings’ time. They were peaceful and were not a threat. It should have stayed at this level.

    At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.

    1915 rioting.

    From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.
    For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims.

    How true! This happened somewhere from 1900 to 2000.

    Now they dominate the meat industry. Beef industry 90%. Chicken industry 90%. Goat meat industry 90%.

    When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions.

    I think after 2000 they reached 10%.

    e.g. Mawanella riot, Slave Island riot, Beruwala killing, Puttlam killing, Dambulla violent protests, Kathankudi violence, etc.

    And the justice ministry!! Colombo Municipal Council, Eastern Province!!

    Next level is EXTREMELY dangerous.

    This trend MUST BE REVERSED.

    Ban polygamy NOW!!
    Stop building any more places of worship financed by outsiders.
    Ban daily loudspeaker nuisance.

  11. Lorenzo Says:

    Hussain,

    They prove the point.

    1854 Muslim population in France was less than 2%.
    1874 Muslim population in UK was less than 2%.
    By 1978 Muslim population in USA was less than 2%.

    As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens.

    “ANNIE BESANT, THE LIFE AND TEACHINGS OF MUHAMMED, MADRAS 1932, P. 4”

    In 1932 Muslim population of India was less than 5%.

    At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs. Hindu-Muslim riots but peaceful otherwise.

    UNFORTUNATELY, the numbers have changed today.

    I wish the numbers can be taken back to what they were.

    Leave out the claim of being the last Prophet of Abraham’s ‘One God’, no Jew or Christian accepts Muhammad is his messenger. They insist Muhammad’s Allah is another ‘One God’. But Muhammad and Muhammadans insist Allah is none other than Abraham’s ‘One God’. Who are we to trust and on what basis?

    However, I agree with Mr. HussainFahmy that Islam has been a rousing success when considered its founder is an unlettered man with no power to perform miracles, healings, walking on water, parting seas, raising folks from the dead or feeding multitudes other than the series of self acclaimed revelations that came overflowing in times of need. Muhammad effectively used those Godly codes to rule over Arabs, Persians, and Byzantines, and through conquest, to steal their treasures.

    Now I like to end this comment with two quotes by two famous men:
    “that it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman (Muslim) who should be slain in Battle was sure to go to Paradise.” – Thomas Jefferson, March 28th 1786.

    “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity.
    The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities – but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.” – Winston Churchill.

    STATS can never match FACTS. Neither can man made LAWS could solve economic/political/social issues. The Arabian desert is turned into fertile land and the citizens of Arabia enjoy a lifestyle far exceeds developed nations. Most citizens enjoy a huge disposable income; thanks to the policies adopted by its leaders. The Islamic faith is gaining momentum among the visitors to this region. No wonder, it is the fastest growing faith in the world. By birth and conversion. One should wonder why despite bad publicity and badly behaved Muslims. We feel sorry for all those people who live in ignorance and backwardness and DESPICABLE COMMENTS here; living life of DARKNESS. We sincerely hope their hearts open up and the LIGHT of Islamic message shines on them inspite of long term pent up cussedness.

    When she is a daughter, she opens a door of Jannah (Paradise) for her Father. When she is a wife, she completes half of her Deen (Religion) of her husband. When she is a Mother, Jannah (Paradise) lies in her feet. If only everyone knew the true status of women in Islam.

    Hussain,

    “Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.”

    This applies to me as well as to the Koran!! ;))

    No offence but no throwing stones hiding in a glasshouse.
    Anyway my explanation stands unchallenged. Ever wondered why today there are more scholarly work to the contrary?
    That is explained in the main article.

    If Muslims remained 2% in SL, NONE of this would come for discussion. So now you know what to do for peace.

  17. Lorenzo Says:

    So we are heading for a solution.

    <2%——2% to 5%—–5% to 10%—– 10%<

    Preferred Muslim population percentage for SL—- <2%. Then everyone will be happy and respectful. No violence. No polygamy.

    This trend can be stopped ONLY by doing the right and civilised thing -BAN POLYGAMY. There is WIDE consensus among patriots here.

    Prostitution is illegal in SL and so should be polygamy (legal prostitution).

    Biggest winners will be Muslims as they will be more peaceful and Muslim women will have dignity, EQUALITY and be liberated and cleansed from having to marry an already married man.

    I demand SL BAN POLYGAMY right away. It is a disgusting practice. Lets move forward into the 21st century. Not go back to slavery, intolerance, bonded slavery, etc.

    How many Muslims having multiple wives in Sri Lanka?
    All of your allegations are due to Islamophobia.and Muslims are more than 10% since 90’s.Muslim of Sri lanka have been killed by Hindus,Buddhists for the past.but out of 269 suicide attacks,(that were happened since 80’s)how many of them Muslims attacks?despite our Buddhists harrassments,Muslims were always loyal to Buddhists in Sri Lanka.and they are the only peace loving socitety.don’t make harm to our coordial relationship.(without legal status for prostitution in Sri lanka,already we’ve 40000 prostitutes).as per your suggestion,extra 172000(50000 +Monks and Clergy who dont marry) women should employ as prostitutes,because Man=Woman 1:1.

    I agree. It was basically you and me who asked these so called “Muslim” writers to publically critisise Saudi wahabis and fight for Rizana.

    Dham – Judiciary justice differs from country to country. Some, who claim FREEDOM JUSTICE LIBERTY detain suspects without any evidence or charges for years, example Guantanamo while some others practice a TRIBAL Justice System, example The House of Sauds. Nobody in their right mind would defend these so-called Demon-cratic Despots. Accountability and Justice will be served. The rights of every single individual will be restored by the one who created us. Believe it or not.

    Muhandiram – It takes courage to stand up for the rights of Humanity. No matter to which faith or belief one gives allegiance. There is a very small percentage of people who sow the seeds of Hatred, Greed and (I ME MINE) Hope the education system weeds out the Rotten, Close-minded, Destructive elements from the face of this earth.

    Before we go about arguing what Peter had written in his book, lets take a step back & see who’s the writer:

    Dr. Peter Hammond
    Missionary, Frontline Fellowship
    Has pioneered missions in the war zones of Mozambique and Angola in the 1980s and in the war zones of Sudan since 1995. Has authored 40 books and manuals and developed the Great Commission Course and Biblical Worldview Summit.

    So it’s like Prabakaran writing a book about why he should have Tamil Eelam in Sri Lanka.

    Rise of Wahabism in Eastern Sri Lanka

    The Islamic fundamentalism found in the all-Muslim town of Kattankudy in the eastern Sri Lankan district of Batticaloa, is rooted in Wahabism, sanctioned and practiced in ultra-conservative Saudi Arabia. Developed between the 13th and 18th centuries, Wahabism has sought to rid popular

    Wahabi-Sufi conflict gets ugly
    Islam of “innovations, superstitions, deviances, heresies and idolatries” and get people to adhere strictly to the Quran and the Hadis (sayings of Prophet Mohammad).
    Wahabism is against music and dance, and the social mixing of the sexes. Being acutely monotheistic, it is opposed even to the display of images of humans and animals; praying at graves; and assigning divinity to the Prophet, praying to him and celebrating his birthday.

    Wahabists also reject non-religious cultural practices and beliefs which are inherited or imbibed from other cultures.

    Within Islam, Wahabism is virulently opposed to Sufism because Sufism does not recognise the duality between self or man, and God.

    In Sufism, God has to be reached through personal experience by gaining knowledge of one self. Sufism believes that saints and wise men are necessary to guide one’s search for God.

    It sanctions worship through music and dance and paying obeisance to saints and teachers, both living and dead.

    The Prophet is considered divine and celebrated. Inherited and imbibed non-religious cultural practices are not rejected outright. Wahabis consider such ideas heretical.

    In Kattankudy, the conflict has been between two versions of Islam. On the one hand, there is the entrenched and popular version which is culturally integrated with the local Tamil environment, and which could be loosely described as Sufistic. On the other hand, there is the new entrant, Wahabism.

    Prior to the entry of Wahabism in the mid 1970s, (thanks to the oil boom and the rise of Saudi Arabia) Kattankudy Muslims were praying at the graves of Auliyas or saintly men; seeking favours from God through prayer; singing songs in praise of God; and organising grand festivals and distributing food in observance of the Prophet’s or a Saint’s birthday; and using flowers in prayer.

    Many of their social customs and rituals were of Tamil or Indian origin. Men and women mingled in religious festivities.

    “In earlier times, Muslims participated in Hindu temple festivals and made vows like the Tamils. They also had regular roles to play in Hindu temple festivals,” recalled KMM.Kaleel of the Federation of Mosques.

    “To stop this, the Ulemas of those days encouraged Muslims to start similar festivities in their own mosques,” he explained.

    According to the Sufi Sunnat-ul-Jamaat leader, Maulvi A Abdur Rauf, not all of these practices can be branded as un-Islamic.

    He argued that many could be justified on the basis of the Quran and the Hadis as these were matters of interpretation. In the past, there had been varying interpretations, he pointed out.

    Rauff was popular. But given the changed global Islamic situation in the 1970s, the elitist Colombo-based All Ceylon Jamiat Ulema issued a fatwa against him.

    He was accused of bringing in the beliefs and practices of the Hindus of Tamil Nadu, where he had studied. But resistance to Rauf at Kattankudy itself, took time to develop.

    Change in thinking began to show up in the mid-1980s, when a large number of locals started going to the Middle East, especially Saudi Arabia.

    “There, they were introduced to Wahabism in special preaching centres,” said MBM Firdous, of the Centre for Development and Rebuilding.

    Back in Kattankudy, people were coming under the influence of P Jainul Abedin alias PJ, a powerful Wahabist preacher from Tamil Nadu.

    Organisations like the Saudi-funded Centre for Islamic Guidance cropped up in the early 1990s, Firdous said.

    Young men from Kattankudy began to get scholarships to study in religious universities in Saudi Arabia and Egypt. It is these young men who spearheaded Wahabism when they got back.

    Coming up: Wahabi-Sufi clashes

  26. HussainFahmy Says:

    Fran Diaz – After Prophet Muhammed’s (PBUH) death due to Power Politics; the Muslims labelled themselves with Sunni, Shia, Sufi, lately Wahhabi. All these Labels are the Handy work of misguided Muslims. Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) predicted that the Islamic Nation will split and only one group will enter Paradise. Those who follow the Noble Quran and his authentic Hadiths. They Just Call themselves Muslims. Humanity’s natural disposition is to differ among his brethren, community and has the God given free Will to form his own opinion and follow his own desires.

    And lo! this your religion is one religion and I am your Lord, so keep your duty unto Me. (The Noble Quran 22:52) But they (mankind) have broken their religion among them into sects, each sect rejoicing in its tenets. (The Noble Quran 22:53) So leave them in their error till a time. (The Noble Quran 22:54)

  27. Fran Diaz Says:

    HussainFahmy,

    You are right. I undersand that what has happened.

    How do the peaceful Islamic people correct the situation and bring in the correct view as the right one to follow ?

    Enormous Wealth seems to get in the way of truly following any religion.

    The problem is always with Money vs God Realization. The Bible too says to choose between God & Mammon (People cannot serve God & Mammon – Matthew 6:24. Mammon here means Greed & Excessive wealth). Also, that it is easier for a camel to pass through an eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter Heaven.
    In Buddhism, the general advice of the Middle Path of enough Wealth for one’s Needs is better than mere accumulation of Wealth, for the sake of Wealth. If one has enormous Wealth, then one has to act very responsibly in using that Wealth, with harm to none. With great Wealth comes enormous responsibility. Only a few can use Wealth in a responsible manner.

    In today’s world, do people expect great Wealth to bring respect from others ?

  28. Fran Diaz Says:

    The use of great Wealth in a responsible and wise way lies equally with Nations & Individuals.

  29. Lorenzo Says:

    Hussain,

    So now it’s personal attacks!! Good. That proves I won and you lost. :)

    Look at the facts. POLYGAMY = PROSTITUTION. This is the accepted norm in the human kingdom today. Polygamy is only practiced in the ANIMAL kingdom. Even in the animal kingdom some are not polygamous!!

    We can see clearly the EXTREME DANGER of Islam to SL from your attitude even though you are peaceful. I urge politicians to handle this threat before Muslims grow any further.

    Fran has given MORE FACTS.

  30. Lorenzo Says:

    Imran,

    Thanks for those facts.

    But that does NOT change what he says. His assessment is 100% true.

    If Prabakaran wrote a book on TE that is fantastic. That does not affect the FACTS that should be judged on OWN MERITS of those facts.

    For example Koran was written by a Muslim! But that does not affect its authenticity. It is still authentic.

    I pity the author of certain VERSES (I refrain from using the other accompanied word out of respect) that incite VIOLENCE, Jihad, Fatwa, etc. Peter’s book is way better than this medieval Arabic book of violence, polygamy, etc.

  31. Lorenzo Says:

    Wealth and Islam MUST be separated. It is wealthy Muslims who spread Wahabism.

    I reluctantly agree with what USA, Russia, China, etc. are doing to separate wealth from Islam. There is no other choice.

    e.g. Pakistan, Libya, Egypt, Somalia, Saudi, Iran, Chechnya, Uigir, Iraq, etc.

    Libya, Iraq when they were rich financed the spread of Wahabism and other middle eastern religions in SL. There are villages by their names!! Thank god it has stopped now.

  32. HussainFahmy Says:

    Fran Diaz – The ingredients for peaceful co-existence is RESPECT to each others opinions and beliefs which we all hold sacred. Wealth may not always be the root of all evils, however it could be a blessing if they are directed towards progress and development of Humanity. The obstacles are Greed, Arrogance, disrespect, etc. Luckily there is a very small percentage in Sri Lanka that sow the seeds of Hatred and Disrespect and they are consumed with the objective to destroy communal harmony. These undesirables will eradicate themselves in time. The real wealth of a nation is its people and how they are treated. None of us can claim a perfect system but we could all join hands to work towards it.

    Allah has created Angels with reason but having no desires; animals with desires but no reason, & man with both reason and desires. Therefore, if one’s reason is stronger than his desires, he is like an Angel… while if his desires are stronger than his reason, he is like an animal.

  33. Lorenzo Says:

    The problem is Islam as it is does NOT respect,

    1. others’ opinion (Fatwa to anyone who expresses opinion)
    2. other religions (Nalanda Buddhists, Bangladesh Buddhists)
    3. Muslims’ own rights! (if one converts to another religion, he is killed)
    4. women’s rights
    5. civilsied marriage of one man and one woman only (only animals do polygamy)

    SO FAR only a small number in SL are sowing the seeds of hatred.
    But this small number is growing FAST!!
    Only 5% fifty years ago, 10% now.

    Must be cut back to what it was. Otherwise what Peter says happens.

  38. Nalliah Thayabharan Says:

    Warlord Muḥammad ibn `Abd Allāh created Islam to grab power from the other religions in the Middle East at the time. Before turned to be a prophet for fun and profit, Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh – the merchant traveled quite widely and met Jews, Christians and Greeks, whose ideas emerged later in the inspiration he claimed to receive from Allah. Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh was charismatic and intelligent. Idiots don’t build empires, but they sometimes run empires, like Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus Germanicus and George W Bush, but they never build empires. Founding an empire requires talent, intelligence, application, often charisma and ruthlessness. No halfwit or ignoramus has ever founded a civilization or started an empire.

    It is not possible for a religion to arise which does evil and nothing more. Nobody would join it or bring their children up in it. Islam offered some improvements over the previous situation in pagan Arabia. The status of women improved, or so Muslims have claimed, they were no longer treated like field slaves to be whipped mercilessly, they rose in status to that of house slaves, to be patronized and whipped mercifully.

    Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh also swept away much of the old order’s rigid structures of class, he had some tendencies which you could almost describe as egalitarian. Not democratic socialist of course, let’s not get carried away, but he did institute a taxation system which worked to alleviate absolute poverty. So, when you compare Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh to tyrants he stands alongside those tyrants who while conquering a lot of people, slaughtering his enemies, selling their children and raping their women did manage to do a few things to add to the positive side of the ledger. Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh was a warlord, pure and simple. Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh roused a disorganized group of nomadic tribes into a ruthless, fearless army. During his lifetime, Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh conquered the Arabia and his followers eventually extended those conquests from Spain to India. By all rights, Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh should take his place in history among of Alexander the Great, Genghis Kahn, and Tamerlane the Great as early history’s great military leaders. But when you compare him to great spiritual leaders like Confucius, Laozi or Gautama Buddha, well, Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh looks like a ruthless tyrant.

    The claim that the status of women improved under Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh is disputed by many who say that the status of women went down under Islam. Women lost the right to own and control property. Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh’s first wife, Khadijah, who was a wealthy widow and trader in her own right employed Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh before marrying him. Perhaps 25 years of being the husband of one older wife who was wealthy and powerful in her own right contributed to Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh’s rather extreme treatment of women.

    Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd Allāh was a camel-mounted pirate, a warlord, a slave trader and the murderer of defenseless prisoners. During his ten years in Medina, Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd Allāh personally led 27 military attacks. Prior to his death, Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd Allāh conquered most of the Arabian peninsula. According to the Quranic verses written in Medina verses, Allah accepts converts who do not believe in him inwardly, but will kneel to him outwardly under threat of death. Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd Allāh did not have this view of Allah until he became a warlord and used force to compel people to accept his rule. In Mecca, Muhammad ibn ʿAbd Allāh had one wife. During his last 10 years of his life at Medina, Muhammad ibn ʿAbd Allāh married 12 more women. A warlord does not tolerate those who question his decrees. Similarly, Muslims are warned by their teachers that asking too many questions about why Allah commands something is a sign of impiety. The corruption of Muslim officialdom in many countiries seems to follow the pattern set by Mohammed ibn ʿAbd Allāh when he was a corrupt warlord.

    Muḥammad ibn `Abd Allāh did not invent monotheism. The Pharaoh Akhenaten in Egypt’s 18th dynasty had put a single sun deity at the centre of worship 2,000 years before Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh. Monotheism makes totalitarianism and intolerance much easier. Monotheism is responsible for more human suffering than any idea ever thought up by humans, with the possible exception of the idea that faith is a virtue, but we can’t blame Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh. Whatever his myriad faults are originality of thought is not one of them.

    Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh did not initiate slavery. Slavery had been universal across Africa, Asia and Europe for several thousands of years. Slavery was considered to be totally normal. We can’t blame Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh for inventing slavery. But Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh thoroughly endorsed slavery and engaged in the trading, keeping and taking of slaves himself. Nobody wants to be enslaved and making, keeping and trading of slaves is totally abhorrent under any circumstances. Slavery is wrong period.

    Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh did not invent the barbaric and primitive practice of marrying very young girls. Joseph was a 90 years old man at the time of marriage with the Mary – Mother of Jesus od Nazreth. Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh married Aisha at the age of 6, he watched over her until the age of 9 when he took her into his household as his wife, with all that this normally entails. Aisha was accused of being unfaithful to Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh. Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh declared that Aisha was innocent after a convenient divine revelation and decreed that from then on all accusations of adultery which includes rape require 4 reliable men as witnesses. Even today Muslim women are being thrown into prison or even stoned to death in places where sharia law is applied for the sin of being raped without enough 4 reliable men as witnesses.

    The common claim that Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh was a pedophile is unfair. If this had been the case Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh could have had a lot more children in his tent. Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh’s first marriage was to an older widow Khadijah, which lasted 25 years during which time he had no other wife. Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh had something in the order of 16 wives and most of these were widows and older women. The statistics on the safety of childbirth among the under 14 give strong support to the idea that marriage at the first hint of puberty is an extremely bad example for any potential role-model to set. This bad example is blighting the lives of millions of girls and is directly responsible for many cases of miscarriage and horrific damage to young girls. Many women have a lifetime of incontinence and infertility because they followed the example of Islam’s “perfect man” Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh.

    Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh did not invent the ritual sacrifice of animals. The Jews had done it for thousands of years. Animal sacrifice was also done by many other civilizations including the Greeks.
    Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh did not introduce animal sacrifice to Arabia as his tribe and many others had been sacrificing to their Pagan gods for centuries and the younger Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh himself had both sacrificed to pagan gods and eaten the meat of that sacrifice.

    Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh took for granted that his followers would be having sex with the wives of the pagan warriors that they captured in the battles and the wives of the Jewish tribes that they had killed. Qur’an says that a Muslim may marry up to 4 wives and have sex with the captives that his right hand possesses, which refers to slave women captured in battle.

    Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh did not invent the strange barbarous practice of circumcision. Jews copied male circumcision from the Egyptians. Circumcision was carried out across large parts of Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Even today the butchery of the genitals of young girls is widespread across Africa, practiced by Muslims, practitioners of African traditional religions and Christians. Female Genital Mutilation is very common in Egypt and Ethiopia among Christians, and it is not right to blame this on Muhammad ibn `Abd Allāh.
