The real motivation of the Jihadi terrorists we face, 21 Oct 2006
The Truth about Muhammad is a marvelously researched and scrupulously documented academic description of the life of Muhammad drawing only on respected Muslim sources. Despite this it manages to read like a great novel! It's got sex violence, deception and magic. It's just a pity that the implications of this are so serious for the world.
It will, of course, be criticised as only taking the negative elements from the story of the life of Muhammad but that is not the point. The point is to find the elements in this man's life that are used NOW to justify the most despicable acts; and that justification is easy to find.
The author gives a very good interview on the podcast Shire Network News and he is completely upfront about this. It takes a great deal of courage to publish this material that really needs to be read by a wide audience.
