I hate to admit, but although the voices against Islam are clearly on the rise, we are still losing the war, for now. Two of the main reasons we are losing this war are, irresponsible reporting from the media, and self-centered suicidal “Christians”/non-Muslims who carry water for Islam. I call them self-centered because I have spoken to plenty of them, and they have all followed the same pattern. Not an ounce of concern about Sharia continuing to creep in, and their future generations being forced to “live” under the barbarity of it. I call them suicidal because they are ushering in their own demise.
Today we get a dose of both all at once! Introducing the HuPo’s Craig Considine!

New Book Sheds Light on Prophet Muhammad’s Interfaith Views
No other leader in world history has been more scrutinized and ridiculed than Prophet Muhammad. Since the founding of Islam in 632 AD, Christians and Jews have described the Prophet of Allah as a blasphemer, bigot, terrorist, and pedophile, among other slurs. However, according to a new book The Covenants of the Prophet Muhammad with the Christians of the World (published by Angelico Press, 2013), these accusations are found to be dishonest, prejudiced, and not based on sound scholarship.
Apparently Craig wants to play lawyer for Mohammad. But right off the bat I prove that Craig is either a liar, ignorant, or both. I will do so by using the Koran and scholarly works.
Let’s bring this madman to trail!
The charges are the following:
According to the Koran God (Allah) wants the People of the Book or “those given the scripture”, Christians and Jews to be dominated under Islamic rule. Of course Christians and Jews could consider that blasphemy. As Muslims claim there is one God. Now why would God want his own religion dominated by others? It makes little sense.
Koran verse 9:29
Fight those who do not believe in God, nor in the Last Day, for, otherwise, they would have believed in the Prophet (s), and who do not forbid what God and His Messenger have forbidden, such as wine, nor do they practise the religion of truth, the firm one, the one that abrogated other religions, namely, the religion of Islam — from among of those who (min, ‘from’, explains [the previous] alladhīna, ‘those who’) have been given the Scripture, namely, the Jews and the Christians, until they pay the jizya tribute, the annual tax imposed them, readily (‘an yadin is a circumstantial qualifier, meaning, ‘compliantly’, or ‘by their own hands’, not delegating it [to others to pay]), being subdued, [being made] submissive and compliant to the authority of Islam.

It has been narrated by ‘Umar b. al-Khattib that he heard the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) say: I will expel the Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula and will not leave any but Muslim.
Sahih Al-Bukhari, Al-Adab al-Mufrad 1103 (For more on Bukhari, go to http://www.sunnah. com/bukhari)
—Abu Hurayra reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “Do not give the People of the Book the greeting first. Force them to the narrowest part of the road.”
Yes, Mohammad was a bigot. Guilty as charged!
This one was easy. Mohammad pleaded guilty to the charge.
(Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220)
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror, and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.” Abu Huraira added: Allah’s Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures.
Sahih Bulkhari Volume 5, Book 58, Number 236: Narrated Hisham’s father:
Khadija died three years before the Prophet departed to Medina. He stayed there for two years or so and then he married ‘Aisha when she was a girl of six years of age, and he consumed that marriage when she was nine years old.
I think it is safe to say that makes him a pedophile. Guilty as charged! In some states that would be a three strike law. Life imprisonment!
Craig, you are not off to a very good start here. But I will give you some friendly advice. If you are going to change careers, and you should, I would scratch researcher off the list!
Dr. John Andrew Morrow, author of The Covenants of the Prophet Muhammad, is a scholar who received his PhD from the University of Toronto and completed the full cycle of Islamic seminary studies. He was raised in a multilingual family in Montreal and Toronto, Canada. Morrow is also a Native North American of the Metis nation and proudly identifies himself as an “Aboriginal Person.”
Please stay tuned for Monday the 30th’s part ll. In which I continue to show you what Craig, and “scholar” Dr. Morrow didn’t…
FYI, I decided not to write part ll, because Craig could not even begin to formulate a response to the first one which I had Tweeted him. Case closed!
