Today i am studying a book (Understanding Muhammad) which is written by Ali Sina . Ali Sina  is an Iranian Canadian activist and strong critic of Islam who describes himself as an ex-Muslim. Founder of Faith Freedom International, which he describes as a grassroots movement of ex-Muslims.

In his book he discussed lot of issues of prophets life. He quoted all the Koranic verses whit the brief written history of muslim writers. I have studied lot of islamic books which based on history but in this book Ali describes all the basic roots of islam which are having direct connection with barbarism. It is the basic problem of muslims that they never try to research about their religion.

They think they are born Muslims & all such books are written because its a conspiracy by Jews. I was a born Muslim. In my childhood I used to ask lot of question to my teachers & parents about Islam . They used to amuse me by telling that the prophet turned the moon in two pieces with his finger. Superman was the hero of my age I used to think that if a cartoon is flying with a magical power then why not prophet ? 

With the passage of time I came to know that Superman is just a fictional character this thing had hurt me a lot. At the age of 13 I was completely a rebel because i was forced by my parents for mosque & Mulla in mosque used to threaten us that if you don't offer prayer you would not be able to pass your examination & God never helps the sinners.

Then types of sins were described to us. I was an arts student in my first year at high school i started to study Islamic history books then within one year i came to know that God is ordering Muhammad to kill the Jews for land & sex slaves then why we are told that Islam is a religion of peace. If the roots are filthy so filthy plants. Now a days all Muslim societies are the living example of their roots . As long as you praise Islam you are safe there as you talk about prophet life you are harassed tortured & mostly killed. That's why all  the apostates run from their native countries because in Muslim countries there is no freedom of expression.

Now a days Ali Sina staying safe in Canada. His book is available on Google books.

Thanks for the info Navid. This is from his wiki page:

"With violent conquest and contempt for non-believers central to the tenets of the faith," Sina argues, "attempts to forge a moderate form of Islam are doomed... The only way to reform Islam is to throw away the Koran; 90 per cent of it should be thrown away. You also have to throw away the history of Islam, and you have to completely disregard the Sira" – the Arabic term used for the various biographies of Muhammad, from which historical information about his life and the early period of Islam is derived.[9]

In his October 2010 speech during the inauguration of the Freedom Party in Germany, Geert Wilders, leader of the third largest party in Netherlands said, “Ali Sina, an Iranian Islamic apostate who lives in Canada, points out that there is one golden rule that lies at the heart of every religion – that we do unto others as we would have them do unto us. In Islam, this rule only applies to fellow believers, but not to Infidels. Ali Sina says ‘The reason I am against Islam is not because it is a religion, but because it is a political ideology of imperialism and domination in the guise of religion. Because Islam does not follow the Golden Rule, it attracts violent people.’”[10

why we are told that Islam is a religion of peace

Because the only peace is through submission to what Allah wants.  But I'm sure you knew that already.

Sounds like Al Sina and I agree.  I'm no expert but I'm trying to learn very quickly.

Im glad Ali Sina is safe in Canada. It serks to me, Islam is a totalitarian social and political system, as well as religion. I dont know how you can bring a billion people into the light of reason.

Hi navid, you really do represent the sliver of hope for humanity. From my perspective, all religions are about controlling the people. Screw that!

The Judaeo christian fundamentalists and the Islamic fundamentalists, if you compare their history, are parallel.

For example, the early Christians were analogous in their treatment of infidels too, etc.

Islam is about a thousand years behind Christianity for example....so, what was the Church saying/Christians doing about a thousand years ago?

Is it that so different than what Muslims are saying/doing now?

Many Imams are calling for modernization, acceptance of homosexuality, tolerance, etc...while many are not...and some are still calling for murder of those who differ in opinion, etc.

As with all other religions, over time, they evolve to more closely reflect what people think it was supposed "to mean" all along.

Its why most Christians can be read passages from their own bibles, told the passages were from the Koran, and then exclaim how barbaric the Koran is, and no wonder Muslims are terrorists.

People THINK that their religion reflects how they feel, because its "their religion", and, they know how they feel, so, that must be "it"...but never fact check to see if that's what the RELIGION says or not.

:D
