I came across this story at apostatesofislam.com
, site created and contributed to
The site quotes:
“Mohammed himself was a terrorist in his time, when he ordered to kill those who left Islam. He took part in many battles against people just for
the reason they did not accept Islam”
And used this bit of history
as one example
“What Happened to the Jews of Medina?”
“This is the story of the tragic end of the Jews of Medina. A case of ethnic cleansing, betrayal and genocide carried out by the Messenger of Allah
(PBUH). The prophet raided the 2000 year old Jewish communities of Medina, killed their men, confiscated their properties, enslaved their wives and
children and banished the unwanted with no provocation on the part of the Jews. The holy Prophet's sole motive was greed for their wealth and lust
for their women.
It is difficult for us to find the truth about what really happened to the Jewish inhabitants of Medina at the time of Muhammad. There are no
independent sources and the Jews who where eventually exterminated by Muhammad left nothing for us to refer to. We are left only with the Muslim
historians’ version, which obviously tell the story tainted with their fanatical faith to their prophet and their hatred of the Jews that is
conspicuous in every sentence they wrote about them…”
Later in the article:
“After the incident of Badr that Muhammad’s men ambushed a merchant caravan, and brought the booty his fortunes changed. He was enriched by the
stolen booty, and his popularity grew. He promised wealth and slave girls to those how took part in his armed robberies and paradise with houries and
rivers of wine to those who were killed. For an ignorant fanatic and at the same time greedy Arab this was a proposition hard to resist. If he
survived he would have his share of booty including women and if he died he would go to paradise and have more of the same plus the pleasure of
Please read the entire article
Here are three more examples of Muhammad’s cruelty and terror against the Jews given at the site:
So it seems the Islam has had examples of extremists from the very inception of the religion itself. According to these articles Muhammad himself was
an extremist who used violence and terror to force his agendas and desires.
It’s clearer and clearer to me each day that terrorism that results from Islamic extremism is nothing new and can be blamed on nobody but the faith
itself. Are all Muslims extremists and terrorists? Of course not. But it is crystal clear that the faith itself combined with certain cultures
nurture the extremism that may exist in some of its followers.
And the “infidels” (you and me) are dying as a result. Why? Because we don’t believe the same things the extremists do. And when the Prophet
himself routinely used extremism to further his faith, how can we expect the weak minded among them not to follow suit?
Lets hope the main stream Muslim community figures out how to police the extremists in their midst before it’s to late. At the very least it
tarnishes their religion and builds hatred, but at most it could mean all out war…
