Mat 7:15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. Mat 7:16 You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Mat 7:17 So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. Mat 7:18 A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Mat 7:19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Mat 7:20 Thus you will recognize them by their fruits. Islam is founded upon the 'prophetic revelations' spoken by Muhammad. Muhammad is a muslim's greatest example, just as Jesus is ours in Christendom. What sort of man was Muhammad, and do his followers emulate him? The following is from Al Ghazoli's book which I mentioned previously: Muhammad was a false prophet, and all of the fruits he bore are evil. Muhammad was oppressed by a demon who choked him until he agreed to have written (for Muhammad was illiterate and could not write) the words which the demon gave him. Muhammad called the demon "Gabriel" and soon found that the "angel" was very helpful it getting Muhammad what he wanted: money, power, followers, prestige, and tons of women for sex. Muhammad managed to marry a rich older woman, and the day after she died he took two new wives... one of which was a 6-year-old girl named Aisha. Little Aisha became his favorite wife of all. He used the messages from "Gabriel" to lead his band of men in raids against various caravans and villages, where they killed all the men and took the young women as slaves or "wives." These men showed no mercy whatsoever. Muhammad always had his pick of the most beautiful ones for himself to marry (immediately after battle, while their family's corpses were still warm). If one of Muhammad's followers had a wife who caught Muhammad's eye, he cited a revelation from Gabriel which gave him the right to command the man to divorce his wife immediately, upon which Muhammad promptly married the woman and consummated the marriage (often the same day as the divorce). By the way, muslims say that Muhammad was the Seal of all God's Messengers and the prophet of mercy. Some of his greatest sources of enjoyment were having sex with young women, decapitating men, watching executions, and torturing people. On one occasion, Muhammad sent 3,000 men to besiege the people of Banu Quraiza (which held about 900 men, plus women and children). The people were offered a treaty: they were told that if they would surrender their arms they would be safe, so they did. But Muhammad's men had lied; they took their captives back to Muhammad, who ordered that the men be beheaded (10 at a time) and thrown into a ditch while the women watched, and Muhammad himself participated in the beheadings. When the men were dead (and Muhammad was covered with their blood) he commanded that the women be lined up for his inspection, and he chose the most beautiful one for himself and offered to spare her from slavery if she would willingly be his wife. The woman, who had just seen her husband, three brothers, and other relatives slaughtered, replied that she would rather be a slave and she spit at him, so Muhammad kept her as a slave and enjoyed raping her with her hands and feet tied. This is just one of many such examples of Muhammad's depravity. Have muslims been successful in emulating their prophet, who presided over the deaths of some 30,000 people during his life? Yes. According to Ibn-Al-Asam Al-Garhami's book, Tales of Battles, it is estimated that 10,000,000 people died by the Islamic sword between that time and the middle of the 18th Century. In Spain alone the muslims killed over 1,500,000 men. In just the past 10 years, 18,000 terror attacks have been committed in the name of Islam. Islam springs from an evil, diseased root and no good can come of it. A diseased tree may appear to have some health or soundness in it even while its core is rotten. Anyone who thinks Islam is 'okay' or 'just another harmless belief system' is mistaken. I could cite the many verses from the Quran which command violence and death against infidels like us, but they are easy enough for anyone to find on their own.
