Also see chapters “Muslims are better”, “Make no friends with non-Muslims”, and “Incitement to dislike, hate and suppression”. This chapter overlap with those, but the others are about promotion of general dislike, distance from others and own superiority - making an "enemy-picture" - whereas this chapter mainly is about the direct incitement and motivation for war.
It is true that there were places and times - even long times - where Jews and others were permitted to live in Muslim countries. Just like there were places and times - even long times - were Jews and others were permitted to live in Europe. And it is true that when the Jews had to leave Spain (the star Muslim proof) they to a large degree ended in Muslim areas - but also f. ex in Portugal and France, a fact Muslims never mention).
But it is not true that there any time existed a Golden Age where Muslims and non-Muslims were equal and where there was no distance between Muslims and “infidels”. Neither is it true that “infidels” really were safe and accepted anywhere in the Muslim world. They always were second-rate inhabitants, and come hard times or hard caliphs or hard mullahs, etc., then there was danger for non-Muslims, and especially for Jews and Pagans, but you bet: Also for Christians.
Beware: “All believing Muslims are and always were conservative 'Islamists'. It is only that those you in the West today call conservative, are - and were - conservative to a larger degree. The fanatics, so to say”. Even in peaceful times and places, the situation could change in a short time. Other times and places the situation was difficult and dangerous for long periods.
Some examples of “the Golden Age”, but remember: Just some examples - there are much more:
001 622 - 628? AD: Muhammad is the leader of highwaymen robbing and murdering caravans (the reason for the wars with Mecca, who naturally wanted to protect their caravans from thieves, extorters, and murderers). Muhammad personally led a number of the raids himself - most of the so-called battles below in reality simply are raids for money, valuables and slaves (see XI/12 and XI/13). Simply stealing, extortion and enslavement. Some "Golden Coexistence"!!!
002 622 - 632 AD: Raids on surrounding tribes to steal and rob - some 60 raids during the Medina years of Muhammad. Ibn Ishaq names 43, and there were more - see chapter XI/12 and XI/13 - (some lead by Muhammad himself), included some mainly to murder opponents.
003 623 AD: Battle of Waddan.
004 623 AD: Battle of Safwan.
005 623 AD: Battle of Dul-'Ashir.
006 624 AD: Muhammad and his followers begin raids for booty regularly to fund the movement.
007 624 AD: Battle of Badr - Mecca tries to put an end to Muhammad's attacks.
008 624 AD: Battle of Bany Salim.
009 624 AD: Battle of Aid-ul-Fitr and Zakat-ul-Fitr.
010 624 AD: Medina: Banu Quaynuka (Jewish tribe) evicted from Medina. Muhammad wanted to kill the men, but the Khazray clan protested, and Muhammad was not yet strong enough - he had to let them leave, but robbed them for possessions and all houses and land (20% for Muhammad). The corresponding surah: 3/12 - received afterwards of course - told that Muhammad had done the right as always.
011 624 AD: Battle of Sawiq.
012 624 AD: Battle of Ghatfan.
013 624 AD: Battle of Bahran.
014 624 - 632 AD and later: Pagan Arabs around Medina and later in the rest of Arabia are forced by weapons to become Muslims - in stark contradiction of the words in the Quran. (The Quran got new surahs that overrode the mild ones: Kill the infidels, and especially the Pagans).
015 625 AD: Battle of Uhud - Mecca tries once more to put an end to Muhammad's stealing, robbing and murdering.
016 625 AD: Battle of Humra-ul-Asad.
017 625 AD: Medina: Banu l’Nadir (Jewish tribe) - evicted from Medina, but had to leave most of their possessions. (May settled in Khaybar - - - and were murdered later). Muhammad’s 20% from these two evictions made him economically self-sufficient. Surah 59 tells it was Allah who willed it.
017 625 AD: Battle of Dhatur-Riqa.
019 626 AD: Battle of Badur-Ukhra.
020 626 AD: Battle of Banu Mustalaq Nikah.
021 627 AD: Battle of the Trench (Medina). Mecca's last try to stop the stealing, extortion and murdering of Muhammad.
022 627 AD: Battle of Ahzab.
023 627 AD: Banu Qurayzah (the last big Jewish tribe) in Medina partly slaughtered or made semi slaves (evicted a few years later under caliph Omar). - one woman (Raihana bint Amr) for Muhammad himself. She was raped by Muhammad personally, and kept her in his harem. He later wanted to marry her, but she refused - which tells something. Surah 33/26-27 made all this a good deed - it happened to “arrive” shortly afterwards.
024 627 AD: Battle of Bani Lahyan.
025 627 AD: Battle of Ghaiba.
026 628 AD: The Khaybar oasis: Muhammad first murdered the leader Abi ‘l Huqayk in his sleep. Later he sent a delegation to Khyber and promised the new leader Usayr b. Zarim safe return for discussions in Medina about solutions to their problems in peace, and with sure guarantees for safe conduct and safe return. Zarim left with 29 unarmed men - - - and all except one that managed to escape, were murdered by Muhammad’s men. ”War is betrayal,” Muhammad later said. Then there was war. The Banu Nadir Jews were massacred; - and all men in Khaybar, some 700 Jewish men (all) murdered, some 2ooo women and children made slaves. From the fort Khamus the leader Kinana b.al-Rabi was tortured to death, because Muhammad wanted to steal riches he thought Kinana knew where were hidden. Muhammad lit a fire on his chest until he died. Then Muhammad personally raped Kinnan’s newlywed wife - the 17-year-old Safijja - the same night, while his man Abu Ayub kept watch outside in case she should offer so much resistance that it became dangerous for Muhammad. Muhammad then was nearly 60 and surely was a pleasure for the young woman - especially just after he had in a bestial way had murdered her husband. (He later married her). Golden age for co-habitation?
027 630 AD: Conqueast of Mecca - and the murder of a few opponents.
028 630 AD: Battle of Hunsin.
029 630 AD: Battle of Tabuk

060 641? AD: Amr b. al-As attacks Egypt:
061 641 AD: Caliph Omar (Amr b. al-As) murdered and destroyed whole cities and towns around this time - and in 641 AD destroys the bibliotheque in Alexandria (totally unique in the ancient world - only this piece of stupidity and terrorism destroyed more ancient knowledge than the old scriptures all the Muslims put together ever saved for the future from f. ex. Greece) because books either were unnecessary or bad, depending on if they agreed with the Quran or not. Golden age for co-habitation or culture?
062 641 AD? Eukhaita, Armenia: All inhabitants murdered.

066 642 AD and again in 643 AD: The city of Dvins sacked.

076 651 AD: Naval battle against the Byzantines.
077 652-1276 AD: For more than 600 years the Nubians had to send slaves of both sexes to Cairo of each and every year. (Nubians were far from the only ones having to pay such tributes to Muslim rulers.) Slaves officially only were permitted to take during jihad (holy war) Muslims say (though how good is a god who not only permits enslavement even during war of self defence, but uses it as incitement to war for his warriors? But as everything was called jihad, there was no problem or reason for qualms over robbing, raping or enslavement).

AD: Shu’ubiya - an organisation formed by non-Arab Muslims as a reaction to Arab Muslims arrogance, discrimination and demands to be the top bosses of everything, even tough they still mainly were barbarians. The organisation was at its strongest during 2. and 3. century after Muhammad. A proof of a Golden Age of co-habitation?
094 702 AD: Rebellion in Iraq and the Battle of Deir ul Jamira. Rebellions are such nice proofs for Golden Co-existence.
095 704-705 AD: Caliph Walid I collected a large part of the male aristocrats of Armenia (Christians) in churches in Naxcavan and Araxis and burnt them alive. The rest were crucified or murdered in other ways and their women and children taken for slaves. Really a hearty expression of co-habitation - but a Golden Age? - well Walid I got a lot of gold.

097 711 AD: Attacking Sind (on the Indian sub-continent - now roughly Pakistan).

129 805 AD: Attacking the Byzantines - the "religion of peace" in friendly co-existence?
130 805 AD: Attacking and conquering Rhodes.
131 805 AD: Attacking and conquering Cyprus.

158 1ooo AD: Mahmud from Gahzni sacks parts of India. Destruction, robbery, massacres, forced changes of religion. He was no saint.

160 1004 AD: Mahmud from Gahzni captures Bhatiya in India.
161 1004-5 AD: Mahmud from Gahzni invades Multan and Ghur (states in India). Mahmud behaves like before - the main things are to kill non-Muslims and to steal valuables. Simply a professional bandit cum mass murderer in the name of Allah.
162 1004? AD: Mahmud from Gahzni’s men kills some 50ooo at Somnat. Surely the eastern start of the Golden Age of co-habitation?
163 Ca. 1ooo-1200 AD: Insurrections and civil wars in the west - the Berbers in Northwest Arabia and Spain pulls free from the Arabs because of Arab dominance, arrogance and discrimination (one of the reasons why somewhat free thinking lasted another 100 years there). Golden Age of co-habitation?

175 1091 AD: Sicily is lost to the Christian Normans.
176 1095 AD: The first crusade. Islam reckons the time of the crusades to be a terrible time, because they experienced a little - just a little - of the bestiality Muslim warriors often practised against their victims. Not one single Muslim we have met have ever compared the deeds of the crusaders with the often much worse deeds of Muslim warriors - because the Muslim warriors of course were heroes, whereas the crusaders were beasts. Compare the Muslim behaviour in f. ex. Sind or Armenia or parts of Africa and draw your own conclutions.
177 1137 AD: After conquering Andalusia still the hate between north (Quaysite) and south (Yemenite) Arabians were so strong, that the armies had to be kept at separate places, trying (unsuccessfully) to avoid civil war. Golden Age?

Actually Buddhism was entirely rooted out in India between 712 and 1200 AD (mainly between 1ooo and 1200 AD). Yes, Golden co-habitation between people and between religions.

191 1250 - 1517 AD: Many times tumults in Egypt because non-Muslims got good jobs.
192 1258 AD: The Mongols sack Baghdad. The Mongols were another war culture behaving like the Muslims - - - and were terrible animals according to Islam. Then they became Muslims and continued just like before, but now against non-Muslims, and then they of course were good and heroes - - - according to Muslims and Islam. Islam has no moral philosophy and no empathy.
193 1268 AD: Antiokia overrun by Baibar and his Muslims and “even Muslims were shocked by all the murdering and massacres”.

199 1297 AD: New attack on Christian Assyrians (under "benign" Muslim rule) - churches burned, 12ooo made slaves in the city of Amedia. The attack was led by Ala Al-Din.
200 1310 AD: Once more attack on Assyrians: Arabs helped by Mongols took Arbela. All inhabitants were massacred or made slaves.
201 1315 AD: Internal war in Tunisia. As mentioned there is a lot of intrenal strife, coups, assasinations, and other kinds of internal power strugle during these centuries - we only mention some of the cases.

203 Ca. 1330-1656 AD: Started by sultan Orkhan 20% of the Christian boy children between 14 and 20 years in Southeast Europe had to be turned over to Muslims to become slaves or soldiers (the indicated total numbers per year, shows though that most likely not 20 % were sent - but on the other hand the Muslims doing the work, often picked some extra children for themselves or for extorting money from the parents). A similar “tax” for younger children (6 - 10 years) lasted till into the 1700s.
204 1333 AD: Forced change of religion for Jews in Baghdad (and again in 1344).
205 1350 AD: Revolt against Abdur Razaq.

208 1361 AD: Parts of Thrace is conqured.

210 1369 AD and onwards: The fanatic Muslim Timur Lenk, also known as Tamerlane or Timurlane. He was Turkish, but claimed to be a descendant of Ginghis Khan. He and his men became rich on stolen property - - - and had literally hundreds of thousands of non-Muslims massecred if they did not want to become Muslims. A notable ruler for "the religion of peace" and the Golden Age.
211 1371 AD: Invading Bulgaria.
212 1381 AD: Annexation of Seestan, capture of Qandahar (Afghanistan).
213 1384 AD: Conquest of Astrabad and more.
214 1386 AD: Annexation of Azardbaijan, Georgia overrun.
215 1394 AD: The Duke of Moscow is defeated.
216 1395 AD: Annexation of Iraq by Amir Temur. As mentioned there is a lot of internal wars, coups, assasinations, "depositions", and other forms of power struggle during these centuries - we only mention some of it.
217 1398 AD: "Campains" in India.
218 1400 AD: Timur Lenk (also known as Tamerlane) and his Muslim hordes sacked Tbilisi (Georgia) and the surroundings. (Christians mostly). (Source for information about Timur Lenk mainly the book “Zafer Nameh”).
219 1403 AD: Timur Lenk returned to Tbilisi and Georgia. His hordes - you cannot call them soldiers - destroyed 700 towns, massacred the inhabitants, robbed what they could take with them and burnt all churches in Tbilisi.
Some of the other “heroisms” by the pious Muslim Timur Lenk and his men:
He also systematically murdered all Christians he could lay his hands on:
Christians killed in battle are not included - only the intentionally murdered ones (For comparison: How many did the crusaders murder totally during all the years in Israel? The crusaders were bad people, Muslims say, whereas Muslim murderers were heroes?)
220 1446 AD: The second battle of Kossova - Serbia annexed to Turky, and Bosnia became Turkish vassal. The Golden Co-existence?
221 1453 AD: Constantinople taken by the Muslim sultan Mehmet who promised his armies 3 days of completely free stealing, plundering, raping and killing - and he kept his words. The soldiers killed everyone they met in the street - everyone. But after some time they found that stealing, robbing and taking slaves paid better.
222 1456 AD: Attacking and capturing Serbia.
223 1465 AD: Tumults in Fez, Morocco - a Jew had gotten a high job. Golden Age of co-habitation?
224 1461 AD: Bosnia and Herzegovina taken by Turky - - - in self defence by the "religion of peace"?
225 1462 AD: Albania conquered - another piece of self defence from "the religion of peace" during the time of Golden Co-existence?" Do not laugh when Muslims tell you that Islam only fights in self defence - to laugh is impolite.
226 1473 AD: War between Turkey and Persia.
227 1475 AD: Turkey attacks and conquers Crimea.
228 1475 AD: War between Turkey and Venice. Turkey dominates the Aegean Sea.
229 1499 AD: Battle of Lepanto - the Venetian fleet defeeted by the Turks (but the situation in the Mediterranean Sea starts to change some decades later with the battle of Malta. Also Europe now slowly - very slowly - starts its claimb towards the industrial revolution that is going to turn the tables later).
230 Ca. 1500 - early 1900s AD: Several times forced change of religion for Jews, Christians, and others.
231 1526 AD: Battle of Mohacs. Louis of Hungary is killed by the Turks.
232 1526 AD: Battle of Panipat in India.
233 1528 AD: Buda (part of Budapest) in Hungary is taken by the Turks.
234 1529 AD: Attacking Vienna in a war (unsuccessful) of conquest.
235 1565 AD: Attacking Malta - unsucessfully, mainly because of intern rivalisation in the Muslim invation army, but also because of a strong fortress and a fanatic defence from the just over 1000 defenders + some 8ooo locals (against some 25ooo - 40ooo Muslim attackers). This defeat and the defeat in the naval battle of Lepanto in 1571 broke the Muslim dominance in the Mediterranean.
236 1571 AD: A new battle of Lepanto - the Turks defeated and their dominance of the Mediterranean ended.
237 1600 - 1699 AD: Also this century is marked by much internat strife in the Muslim area - a luck for its neighbours outside. But definitly not an atmosphere for "the Golden age of Co-existence".
238 1617 AD: Forced change of religion for Jews + persecution (and again in 1622).
239 1641 AD: Attacking and capturing Azow (later part of Russia).
240 1653-1666 AD: All Jews in Persia had to become Muslims.
241 1678 AD: New forced change of religion for Jews in Yemen.
242 1683 AD: New attack on Vienna. No success. The tide also in East Europe starts to turn. This even though the loss was more because Turkish inefficiency (they were unable to get their heavy guns to the battlefield) than local strengt. They were finally beaten by the Austrians in 1687. Golden time of Golden Co-existence?
243 1679-80 AD: Attack war against Hindus under Aurangzeb - perhaps the worst Muslim ruler ever in India, and that means something - at least 252 temples destroyed. This in addition to all the other hero’s work. The Golden Age of co-habitation between Islam and other peoples and religions?
244 1711 AD: War against Russia. Russia defeated in the battle of Pruth.
245 1718 AD: New war against Austria - unsuccessful. Turkey looses Hungary to Austria.
246 1761 AD: Battle of Panipat in India. The Muslim area is in a slow decline, whereas Europe slowly is raising - but in the east Muslims still is stronger than the locals.
247 1770-1786 AD: The Jews evicted from Jeddah.
248 1790 AD: The Jews of Tetuan, Marocco, massacred.
249 1805 AD: As in the earlier centuries a lot of strife inside the Muslim area, and in 1805 ibn Saud captured Medina from the Turks.
250 1807 AD: Darqawi revolt against the Turks - another proof for Golden Co-existence.
251 1812 AD: Medina conquered by Egypt. One may wonder what had happened to the world and what the world had been today, if it was not for all the interanl wars and strife in the Muslim area through the centuries under "the Religion of Peace". A religion which the propaganda tells only permits war in self defence - a piece of al-Taqiayya (the lawful lie)? Still now - nearly 1200 years after Muhammad - Muslims normally are the aggressors like they always have been through these nearly 12 centuries.
But the Muslim expansion now definitely is over for this time and its power in decline, at the same time as the West is at full spead forwards. But inside its own area Muslims still rule over the Golden age of Co-existence (?):
252 1828 AD: The Jews of Bagdad massacred.
253 1834 AD: Killing and plundering of Jews in Safed.
254 1839 AD: Forced change of religion and massacre in Meshed.
255 1840 AD and later: A long series of killings and plundering of Jews in Damascus. (And also in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya and the Arab countries of the Middle East).
256 1842 AD: Tries led by Badr Kham Bey to exterminate the Assyrian race (mainly Christians).
257 1860 AD: Some tens of thousands Christians in Lebanon slaughtered by Druze and Kurdish forces.
258 1894 AD: Christians in Armenia massacred.
259 1895 AD: Christians in Armenia massacred.
260 1895 AD: Christian Assyrians massacred (12000 slaughtered only in the city of Urfa).
261 1896 AD: Massacres on Christian Assyrians continue. It is estimated that more than 100ooo all together were killed. Muslims made good money, though, on such attacks.
262 1896 AD: Christians in Armenia massacred. During 1894 - 1896 some 250ooo Christians were murdered in Armenia.
263 1904 AD: Christians in Armenia massacred.
264 1909 AD: Christians in Armenia massacred - some 30ooo.
265 2. - 10. Jan. 1915 AD: Some 70 villages in Urmia attacked and sacked. The number of victims is not known, but at least some thousands (Christians).
266 1915 AD: The terrible massacres in Armenia - some 1.2 MILLION Christians murdered. And parallel to all the murdering during all Muslim massacres there were destruction, stealing, rape and slave taking. Just during the 1915 massacres at least 80ooo Christian Armenian girls and young women ended in Muslim harems, mainly in Turkey.
267 1918 AD: Some 6000 Christians refugees mass murdered in 48 hours (in a French mission).
268 1923 AD: The monastry of Dair Al-Salib demolished and the inhabitants murdered by the Turkish army.
269 11. - 16. Aug. 1933: The massacre of the Christian village Simele - included rape and torture. It is estimated that in this and other massacres during August 1933 some 3000 Christians were murdered - included burnt alive.
270 1936 AD: Increased Jewish immigration in Palestine provokes fighting. It should be remembered that it was Muslims who sold land to the Jews - the Jews did not take land at this time, they bought it.
271 1945 - 1946 AD: Hundreds of Christians massacred in Azerbaijan and other regions of Northern Iraq.
272 1965 AD: Between 250ooo and 600ooo non-Muslims (many of them etnic Chinese) massacred in Indonesia by rampant - or actually not rampant - Muslims and the army.
273 Ca. 1975 AD: The war in Bangladesh. Even though this were Muslims against Muslims, in addition to all the other inhumanity, so many girls and women were raped by Pakistani soldiers, that we have seen in later newspaper reports that some 200ooo children were born as result of all those rapes - and how many rapes on aversge to make one child?. And that were a regular soldier, not irregular forces like in f. ex. Darfur - and they raped fellow Muslim girls and women, not Pagan or Jewish or Christian ones. Not Golden but at least Diamon Coexistence.
274 1981 AD: Muslim countries force the United Nations to change the text of #18 in the Human Rights - it is a human right to have a religion, but it is no human right to convert from one to another religion.
275 24. Sept. 1988: Some 250 Assyrian and Caldean Christians in Iraq "disappeared" after being ordered to go to the police station.
276 Very many thousands of non-Muslims murdered by Muslims and Muslim Indonesian army when East Timor became free. (18600 killed/murdered + estimated 84200 "excess deaths" from hunger and illnesses.)
277 Darfur: Some 200ooo non-Muslims killed - mostly murdered - in Darfur, Africa. Nobody knows how many women and girls are raped and how much is stolen
278 Indonesia: Some 2ooo - 4ooo non-Muslims murdered in upheavals in Indonesia. Mostly Chinese.
THESE ARE FAR FROM ALL. FAR FROM. ADD JUST THE ONES WE HAVE NOT INCLUDED INITIATED BY MUHAMMAD (some 40 not mentioned), AND WE HAVE MORE THAN 300 CASES - PRACTICALLY ALL OF THEM WARS OF AGRESSION AND PRACTICALLY ALL OF THEM NAMED JIHAD - HOLY WAR. EVEN THAT WOULD NOT BE BAD FOR "THE RELIGION OG PEACE", BUT THERE ARE MANY MORE.
AND THERE ARE THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OR MILLIONS WHO DIED FROM HUNGER OR EXCESS DEATHS FROM ILLNESS DURING AND AFTER THE ATTACKS.
AND WHEN DURING THIS TIME WAS THE TIME OF "GOLDEN CO-EXISTENCE"?
2007 AD: Muslim countries try to force the United Nations to make an international law prohibiting insulting the prophets of other religion - not the gods, but the prophets. Guess which is the one and single and only prophet on this Earth and in all history who needs such protection, and guess how such a law will be used.
(2009: Islam succeded. On the other hand one does not have to insult anyone - to tell the plain truth about Muhammad and about Islam is more than damning enough).
THESE ARE JUST SOME OF THE ATROCITIES, AND JUST THESE FEW EXAMPLES REPRESENTS MORE THAN 3 MILLION MURDERED "INFIDELS" - THE ONES KILLED IN BATTLE OR BY HUNGER OR EXCESS ILLNESSES ARE NOT INCLUDED, ONLY THE ONES MURDERED, EXECUTED AND TORTURED TO DEATH. PAGANS, CHRISTIANS AND JEWS. AND THEN THE INHUMANITIES IN AFRICA SOUTH OF SAHARA IS NOT EVEN TOUCHED (because of lack of reliable information).
We have not found how many were murdered because of their religion in Europe during the same periodes, but they were in the tens or hundreds of thousands, not in the millions.
The period from around 1900 till today is extra serious for us and for the future, because this happens now and it continues to happen. And there is no reason not to believe it will happen again when and if Muslim fanatics become strong enough. Just read the Quran.
“When idealists say they are going to kill you, you had better believe them”.
So much for the Golden Age of co-habitation of peoples and religions under the benevolent Islam.
And so much for the chances for the future if Islam is not changed from a religion of hate, rape, robbery, suppression and war, to something more peaceful. If that at all is possible - which it hardly is.
But remember: Some 70% of Muslims in no way want or like or support this side of Islam - or terrorism - according to international polls.
BUT ONE MAY WONDER WHAT HAD HAPPENED AND HOW THE WORLD HAD BEEN IF THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION THAT GAVE THE WEST ITS POWER (TOGETHER WITH BETTER ORGANISATION OF F. EX. ITS MILITARY FORCES) HAD HAPPENED IN THE MUSLIM AREA. A POWERFUL CENTER THAT SUPPRESSED THE REST OF THE WORLD IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE QURAN'S MEDIEVAL IDEALS AND SOMEWHAT NAZI-LIKE WAY OF THINKING AND AS NAZI-LIKE LACK OF MORAL PHILOSOPY.
28. March 2009.
NB: If you find any mistakes anywhere, please inform us. If it is a real mistake, it will be corrected.
NB, NB, NB:
1. Read first the 2 small chapters "Some Essentials for how the Quran is to be read and understood" (VII-10-1) and "The Quran is to be understood literally if nothing else is indicated" (VII-10-2).
2. http://www.1000mistakes.com is blocked by many Muslim authorities. To debate with persons in such areas, cut and paste what you want from the pages and send it under titles different from http://www.1000mistakes.com.
3. http://www.1000mistakes.com is one of 9 pages which Muslim organisetions warned especially against in 2008 and 2009 - it could make especially procelytes lose their belief in Islam; correct and "down-to-the-earth" information works. In this connection it is worth noting that in the "warning" http://www.1000mistakes.com was one of 3 which neither was accused of bringing wrong facts, nor of being a hate page.
4. Comment 141 (to verse 6/149) in “The Message of the Quran” (see point 5) explains (translated from Swedish) about Allah's claimed omniscience vs. man's claimed free will:
“With other words: The real connection between Allah’s knowledge about the future (and consequently about the unavoidable in what is to happen in the future*) on one side and man’s relatively (!!*) free will on the other – two statements that seems to contradict each other – lies outside what is possible for humans to understand, but as both statement are made from Allah (in the Quran*) both must be true”. Unbelievable. Blind belief is the only correct and intelligent way of life, even in the face of the utterly impossible!!
5. And an afterthought: In the book “The Message of the Quran”, certified by Al-Azhar Al-Sharif Islamic Research Academy in Cairo (one of the 2-3 top universities in the Muslim world on such subjects) in a letter dated 27. Dec. 1998, it is admitted rather reluctantly that there are no proofs for Allah, and that it is not possible to prove him. An additonal point here is that if there is no proof for Allah and impossible to prove him, automatically there also is no proof for, and impossible to prove Muhammad's claimed connection to a god. And if there is no Allah and/or no connection between Muhammad and a god, what then is Muhammad? - and what than is Islam? - a made up, invalid religion?
6. Further: All the mistakes, contradictions, etc. in that book prove 100% that the Quran is not made by an omniscient god - no god makes such and so many mistakes, etc. If then Islam is a made up religion, what then about all the Muslims who have been prohibitted from looking for a real religion (if such one exists)? And where will they in case wake up after living and practising such an inhuman war religion like Islam is according to the Quran (and to Hadiths), if there is a second life somewhere? - Hell or Paradise?
7. NB and PS: No matter how sure you are about something, if it is not proved, it is not knowledge, only belief or strong belief, and can be wrong. Only what is proved or possible to prove is knowledge.
(As http://www.1000mistakes.com is blocked in many Muslim areas - which shows they are afraid of it and lack arguments (if they had real arguments for http://www.1000mistakes.com is wrong, blocking was unneccessary) - "cut and paste" whatever you want from it and send if you want to inform or to debate there. Remember to omit the name http://www.1000mistakes.com).
PS: If we are blocked centrally - f. ex. by spam (there is too much at times already from unfriendly sources) we will reopen with new address somewhere else, and announce the new address om f. ex. http://www.topix.com/forum/religion/islam. Also if your comments to us do not reach us, any comments posted on a thread with "1000 mistakes" in the title on that forum will be read by us - it is a big international debate page. We cannot answer on that page, though, as it is not safe enough - we have had death threaths (better to kill an opponent, than to check if a religion brainwashed into you only on the word of a man who even practised lies (f. ex. "war is deceit") and advocated breaking even your oaths if that gave a better result, is true ot made up - old beliefs are hard to question).
Please inform all and everybody and all relevant fora - f. ex. Internet pages for debate or information - about the address http://www.1000mistakes.com. It is information that is urgently needed by many, not least by Muslims. No god made a book with so many mistakes and other wrongs - and if the Quran and Islam are made up by humans or dark forces, where are the followers of this inhumanly dark and brutal war religion heading for in a possible next life?
