Mohammed versus Christ

Pagan fascism versus Civilisation.

by StFerdIII

Much like the writings of Hitler, Lenin or Stalin, the Koran and Suras are suffused with Mohammed’s justifications for war, incest, rape, murder, theft, terror, and destruction. Divine revelations conveniently remove the blame from Mohammed’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. No wonder the uncivilized culture of Arabia so enthusiastically embraced Mohammed.

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 Mohammed 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 Mohammed and Christ side by side, the comparison is immoral and wrong. Christ was a completely different phenomenon and set of living ideas than Mohammed. 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 Mohammed 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 from what Mohammed taught and more importantly from what he did that he was the exact converse of Christ. 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, Mohammed did.

Mohammed 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 Mohammed 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 Mohammed could no nothing without the energy of the sword.”

The energy of the sword was premised on the Jihadic spirit found in the Koran and maintained by the fascist priestly class that has mandated, since Mohammed’s death, the spread of Islam through war and violence.

The Koran, which according to Muslims is the word of Allah dictated to Mohammed in Arabic, is the holy book of Mohammed’s ideology and pagan submission. It is the codified and unchangeable expression of Arabian paganism that even today cannot be distorted, debated or reproved by Muslims. It has altered little since the 9th century AD.

Sharia Law militates against any sort of realization or understanding of human rights, human worth and personal development. The Arab-Islamic world is ruled by Sharia law and Umma’s who interpret such laws. This is a derivative of the Arab pagan cultures which had similar organizations with variations by tribe. Homogeneity of culture, language and law is assumed by Islam much as any pagan culture would assume sameness of bloodlines, beliefs and community spirit. The 9th century AD Sharia law is to be followed and not debated, and the top down nature of the moon cult or any pagan cult for that matter makes this an unsurprising development.

Islam ritualizes prayer, submission and obedience around the Islamic concept of ‘Din’ which relates to religious practice, alms, and fasting. Religious practice revolves around five fundamental points; a belief in Allah, a belief in his angels, a belief in his scriptures, a belief in his prophets, a belief in the resurrection and in the day of Judgment, and a belief in Allah’s absolute predetermination of good and evil. Holy War or Jihad was added later as a sixth element. Islam demands as well ritual prayers with ablutions, certain bodily postures, the use of Arabic, and a purely mechanical system of submission to Allah through prayer.

Since a majority of Muslims world-wide do not speak Arabic it is rather odd that they chant their ritualized prayers in this language without understanding their meaning. It is even odder that they believe that ‘Allah’ spoke only Arabic. How can a mood cult God speak, and why would he or it speak only a minor and unimportant language such as Arabic? It is this blind obedience of Muslims that is so deathly frightening and so clearly points to a pagan ritualization of life that is at odds with the modern world.

It is pretty clear that modern day apologists and Time magazine editors should maybe do some primary research on Mohammed before pronouncing that Islam is holy and peaceful and that Mohammed was a ‘great’ man. I suppose that Hitler and Stalin are also ‘great’ men based on the current criteria for ‘greatness’ which would include; intellectual and theological justifications for violence, racism, genocide and a desire to pilfer and destroy the modern world.

As Alexis de Tocqueville, the 19th century American interpreter and political scientist par excellence stated on Mohammed and his long history of influence and violence: “I studied the Koran a great deal…..few religions in the world as deadly to men as that of Mohammed. 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.’

Christianity and the teaching and leadership example of Christ helped bequeath and form the modern world and the glorious civilization of the West. Islam only exists to destroy it and institute a pagan 7th century cult in the place of Judeo-Christian greatness.
