An Examination of "Many Allegations from a Christian"

Ironically enough, has a section entitled "Allegations and Lies". In this post we will deal with the reasoning (or lack thereof) and dishonesty of the composer.

I do not endeavour to address every question and answer but will comment on the significant ones.

1) Why do most Islamic countries (90%) oppress minority religions in their own countries?
The response provided to this question avoids the issue and claims that those who oppress non-Muslims are not truly Islamic countries. I will examine this in combination to question 2.

2) Why are Muslims so aggressive against Christians in their own and outside their countries? The Christians are looked upon as 2nd-rate citizens.

Once again, the author refuses to answer the question. The response is fallacious and illogical. They begin with some loaded rhetoric, "Who invaded Iraq? Who invaded Afghanistan?... Which countries support the racist and genocidal policies of the Zionist Israeli regime in occupied Palestine for more than 60 years?"

In this way, they not just avoid the question but attempt to justify Islamic hate crimes and abuse against non-Muslims.

It is to be recognised, that non-Muslims are held to be 2nd grade citizens according to Islamic legal principles, the Qur'an and the edicts of Muhammad found within the sunnah. So, here we identify both the source and authority for the gross crimes against non-Muslim minorities in Islamic lands.

It is to be noted that Muslims are not to befriend Christians and Jews
O believers, take not Jews and Christians as friends; they are friends of each other. Whoso of you makes them his friends is one of them. God guides not the people of the evildoers.
Surah 5:51
In fact, Muslims are obligated to make Jews and Christians (people of the book) feel humiliated and subdued. They are forced to pay a head tax for simply not being Muslim:

Fight those who believe not in God and the Last Day and do not forbid what God and His Messenger have forbidden -- such men as practise not the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book -- until they pay the tribute out of hand and have been humbled.
Surah 9:29
However, the Christians and Jews have it easier than the pagans and polytheists. They are to be slayed until they convert to Islam:

Then, when the sacred months are drawn away, slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them, and confine them, and lie in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they repent, and perform the prayer, and pay the alms, then let them go their way; God is All-forgiving, All-compassionate.
Surah 9:5

O believers, fight the unbelievers who are near to you; and let them find in you a harshness; and know that God is with the godfearing.
Surah 9:123

"And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-believers]...and fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah."
Surah 2:191-193
As is evident, the vile actions of Muslims towards non-Muslims has its basis in the religion of Islam. The author refused to answer the question but instead attacked the United States and state of Israel.

7) Does your God love you? And hate the sin you commit daily? Or does he love you only if you hate and kill others who don't adhere to Islam?
The author answers, "Nowhere in Islam does it tell us to kill or hate anyone who is not a Muslim for that fact that he /she is not a Muslim." As has been clearly demonstrated above, this is simply a lie. The Quran repeatedly orders Muslims to fight and kill non-Muslims.

16) Why did he instruct Muslims to only have 4 wives yet he changed it for himself to have more than 20?
The author answers, "This is yet another lie against Prophet Muhammad as he never married more than 20 wives."

The author intentionally avoids answering the question. It is a fact that the Qur'an stated that a man should have only up to four wives (Surah 4:3). Muhammad even forced men to divorce wives so they had less than four:
Narrated Al-Harith ibn Qays al-Asadi
I embraced Islam while I had eight wives. So I mentioned it to the Prophet (peace be upon him). The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Select four of them.
(Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 12, Number 2233)
However, Muhammad, who is exhorted as being the perfect example for human kind took more than four wives. This is attested to by mulitiple authentic hadith and accepted by Muslims:

Narrated Qatada:
Anas bin Malik said, "The Prophet used to visit all his wives in a round, during the day and night and they were eleven in number." I asked Anas, "Had the Prophet the strength for it?" Anas replied, "We used to say that the Prophet was given the strength of thirty (men)." And Sa'id said on the authority of Qatada that Anas had told him about nine wives only (not eleven).

Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 5, Number 268

Narrated 'Ata:
We presented ourselves along with Ibn 'Abbas at the funeral procession of Maimuna at a place called Sarif. Ibn 'Abbas said, "This is the wife of the Prophet so when you lift her bier, do not Jerk it or shake it much, but walk smoothly because the Prophet had nine wives and he used to observe the night turns with eight of them, and for one of them there was no night turn."

Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 5

Narrated Anas bin Malik:
The Prophet used to pass by (have sexual relation with) all his wives in one night, and at that time he had nine wives.

Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 142

Once again, we find the author employing deception to hide the hypocrisy of Muhammad.
