To understand Islamic terror you must first understand the primacy of the Koran as the direct, immutable, unalterable word of Allah and the eminence of Muhammed in Islamic consciousness.
The Koran 68:4 upholds Muhammed as ‘uswa hasana’ (“an exalted standard of character”), and Islamic tradition upholds Muhammed as ‘al-insan al-kamil’ or ‘the perfect man’ to be emulated by all Muslims. This is the conviction of every Muslim, from suicide bomber and airline jihadist, to the friendly Muslim down the street, because ALL Muslims profess the shahada: "There is no god but Allah and Muhammed is his messenger."
The great lie that Muhammed was some kind of holy man, a moral role model with a direct connection to God, is the biggest fraud ever perpetrated upon humanity. It is a massive lie that is propagated by Islam’s power to repress inquiry, dissent and the truth by theologically sanctioned fear, intimidation and violence.
The hard truth about Muhammed, as recorded for posterity in Islamic scripture, is that far from being a virtuous 'holy prophet', Muhammed was actually a classic sadistic sociopath.
Muhammed was, by any objective standard, one of the most vile and repugnant men in the pantheon of human history...a grand mal narcissist consumed by savage power, asymptotic material greed, and unquenchable sexual lust.
