The myths of Islam.
Muhammad called the era before
Islam "Jaheliyah" (the age of ignorance) and those who lived
prior to Islam, ignorant and wrong doers.
Muslims keep parroting these
myths mindlessly and truly believe Islam has been a great boon for
mankind and especially the Arabs.
However, a cursory look at the
practices of the pre-Islamic Arabs shows that these people were more
civilized, had more humanity and conscience than Mohammed and his
These humane Bedouins adopted
orphans whom they treated as their own children with rights of
inheritance. Mohammed changed that because of his lust
for his stepson's wife.
The "pagan" Arabs were
also good environmentalists who prohibited the destruction of trees,
even those belonging to their warring enemies. Again Islam's destructive
prophet changed that - indiscriminately plundering and destroying
trees in settlements he raided.
Also in war, pagan Arabs did not
usually rape female captives, hence the initial restraint of Mohammed's
fellow bandits with regards to married female captives. Islam's

these female captives and authorizing their rape (Sahih Muslim 8:3432;
In religion, these pre-Islamic
Arabs were tolerant, living and interacting peacefully with Jews,
Christians and Sabeans. Mohammed on the other hand waged war, massacred,

"protection tax" from surviving non-Muslims.
Muslims' claim that Islam
improved the lot of Arab women is at best dubious. Mohammed's sugar
mommy, Khadija was known to be wealthy and influential with properties
and a thriving business, decades before Mohammed commenced his wicked
Similarly the Muslim claim that
pagan Arabs killed their daughters is spurious. These same Muslims also
claim pre-Islamic Arabs married numerous wives but Islam reduced them to
four. As Ali Sina pointed out in one of his articles, where did the
surplus wives of these pre-Islamic Arabs come from if they murdered
In essence Islam transformed the
relatively easy-going, peace-loving pre-Islamic Arabs to cruel,
atrocious, slave drivers called Muslims.
If the pagan pre-Islamic Arabs
were half as violent and intolerant as Mohammed and his gang, humanity
would have been spared this evil called Islam. This confirms the well
known adage that, all it takes for evil to thrive is for good people to
