Muhammad: you're all going to hell, thank you, come again

"Jesus, unlike Muhammad, had interesting things to say. He proposed a revolutionary way of looking at the world: love you neighbour, love your enemy, be kind to people, the meek shall inherit the Earth. Muhammad had nothing to say to the world other than, 'If you don't believe in God you will burn forever.'"
Sebastian Faulks in The Sunday Times Magazine.

Actually, its slightly worse than that. The Jews that Muhammad chased out of Mecca DID believe in God- their great crime was not to believe in Muhammad. And indeed, the same thing is true today. Both Christians and Jews believe in the same God as muslims. You wouldn't think so though would you?

Indeed, if you read their websites and their blatherings, they see Christians and Jews as their MAIN ENEMIES. Not Hindus who believe in all sorts of wonderful gods, or Buddhists who believe in a man and God. You won't get that out of Prince Charles, but its true nevertheless.

"But that a camel-merchant should stir up insurrection in his village; that in league with some miserable followers he persuades them that he talks with the angel Gabriel; that he boasts of having been carried to heaven, where he received in part this unintelligible book, each page of which makes common sense shudder; that, to pay homage to this book, he delivers his country to iron and flame; that he cuts the throats of fathers and kidnaps daughters; that he gives to the defeated the choice of his religion or death: this is assuredly nothing any man can excuse, at least if he was not born a Turk, or if superstition has not extinguished all natural light in him."
-Voltaire, Letter to Frederick II of Prussia, December 1740
