Muslims have little integrity demanding respect for our faith if we don't show it for others. When have we demonstrated against Saudi Arabia's policy to prevent Christians and Jews from stepping on the soil of Mecca? They may come for rare business trips, but nothing more. As long as Rome welcomes non-Christians and Jerusalem embraces non-Jews, we Muslims have more to protest against than cartoons.
Fine, many Muslims will retort, but we're talking about the prophet Muhammad - Allah's final and therefore perfect messenger. However, Islamic tradition holds that the prophet was a human being who made mistakes. It's precisely because he wasn't perfect that we know about the so-called Satanic Verses; a collection of passages that the prophet reportedly included in the Koran. Only later did he realise that those verses glorified heathen idols rather than God. According to Islamic legend, he retracted the idolatrous passages, blaming them on a trick played by Satan. When Muslims put the prophet on a pedestal, we're engaging in idolatry of our own

There have been some refreshing admissions by some Muslim commentators yet at the end of it they suppress the truth about their prophet.
In this link the writer makes some good points, then suppress the truth
Of course the truth was actually written by a Muslim with the original biography about Mohammad. There can be no accusation that the writer of the truths about Mohammad was a non-Muslim and an enemy of Islam.
Manji refers to mistakes, which is the most inventive e<uphemism Ive ever heard about Mohammads murders and mayhem as described by Ishaq
At least Manji acknowledges how Satan influenced Mohammad. That puts him on a par with Peter, the follower of Jesus, who Jesus once rebuked Peter on at least one occasion for being influenced by Satan. This was the occasion when Peter thought Jesus should not die on the cross. Satan never influenced Jesus.
Interestingly Peter used a sword at Jesus arrest and Jesus condemned it (cf Mohammad some 600 years later).
Manji is brave and honest enough to admit the satanic verses incident is true, which supports the authenticity of Ishaq's work
According to Islamic legend, he retracted the idolatrous passages, blaming them on a trick played by Satan.
Flip Wilson stole his line, "The Devil made me do it!", from Muhammad? Who knew?
From a scientific perspective,
Satan = Ignorance, callousness, selfishness, indifference
God = Intelligence, empathy, selflessness, compassion
Hm. This guy had best be in hiding before the Religion of Peace comes to kill him.
I wish her well, but it's amazing that there hasn't been lots of attempts on her life given this sort and other statements she's made. She's very brave in speaking truth to insanity.
Irshad Manji (born 1968) is a Canadian author, widely published journalist, and activist. Manji is also a Shia Muslim from the Twelvers (ithna asheri) sect. She is an outspoken feminist, and critic of Islamic fundamentalism and literalist interpretations of the Qur'an. She was once described by The New York Times as "Osama bin Laden's worst nightmare".  Irshad is an ardent advocate for the use of critical thinking, known as ijtihad in Islamic tradition.
And those were his good points. God (the real one) told us He wrote the law in our hearts, so that we would have no excuse.
Muslims have chosen to worship this demon possessed liar. This is their fate:
"Therefore as the tongue of the fire devoureth the stubble, and the heat of the flame consumeth it: so shall their root be as ashes, and their bud shall go up as dust: for they have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and have blasphemed the word of the Holy One of Israel. "
Lighten up, fellow Muslims

Islam can take a joke, even a bad one, at the prophet's expense, writes Irrshad Manji.
At the World Economic Forum last month, I observed something revealing. In a session about the US religious right, a cartoonist satirised one of America's most influential Christian ministers, Pat Robertson. In the audience, chuckling with the rest of us, was a prominent British Muslim. But his smile disappeared the moment we were shown a cartoon that made fun of Muslim clerics.
I believe that this woman is also a lesbian, which I'm sure is against Islam.

I've been saying that the rioters have been acting more like Mohammad cultists than Allah worshippers.
The Jewish people I have seen here will not spell the word "g-o-d". Most write it like this...G-d. From what I have read, they do not fully write the word as it is against their beliefs.
Funny how we haven't seen any riots or deaths to FReepers who do not do the same.
G-d love them!
I dont recall having lesbian thoughts, but then I am a male. Perhaps I'm showing my feminine side too much....
Zul-Qarnain - What is the argument?I have never claimed that Zul-Qarnain *is* the historical Alexander the Great. I don't know why your move to agree with me in this is considered a rebuttal... The argument is then that the Qur'anic story is clearly taken from the legends about Alexander. There are many many details of the Qur'an account which are nearly verbatim to be found in the Alexander legends. Conclusion: Zul-Qarnain clearly is the Alexander the Great of the legend stories. And because the Qur'an presents the material from the legends as if this were history, it shows that Muhammad could not distinguish between legends and history when he incorporated this material in the Qur'an. This is evidence that the Qur'an is not of divine origin.
