Muslim Mindset: ‘The hatred is in Muhammad himself’

To Westerners and moderate Muslims shocked by the radical form of Islam now topping nightly newscasts, the efforts of liberal-minded Muslims like Tawfik Hamid, Italian Sheikh Abdul Hadi Palazzi and a handful of others may seem like the perfect solution. Not so for Ali Sina, who has a different suggestion: destroy Islam.

Sina, who runs Faith Freedom International – an Internet forum dedicated to debunking Islam – calls himself “probably the biggest anti-Islam person alive.” The publication of his latest book, Understanding Muhammad: A Psychobiography of Allah’s Prophet, will likely cement that position. In it, Sina suggests that Islam’s central figure suffered from a series of mental disorders, including narcissistic personality disorder, temporal lobe epilepsy and obsessive compulsive disorder.

“These disorders,” he says via telephone, “can explain the phenomenon known as Islam… which is nothing but one man’s insanity.”

Sina grew up a non-practicing Muslim. Raised in Iran, educated in Pakistan and Italy and now living in Canada, he began jousting with believers in the 1990s. What bothered him, he tells The Jerusalem Post, was not the penchant for jihad and intolerance that certain fanatical Muslims displayed, but the foundation for such ills in the Koran and core Islamic texts.

(Through the Faith Freedom Web site, Sina lists canonical references to Muhammad’s actions and offers $50,000 to anyone who can disprove Sina’s charge that Islam’s prophet was “a narcissist, a misogynist, a rapist, a pedophile, a lecher, a torturer, a mass murderer, a cult leader, an assassin, a terrorist, a mad man and a looter.” Respondents relentlessly attack Sina’s motives, but none has won the prize.)

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 idea that Islam can be reformed is a fallacy,” he scoffs. “It’s like saying we can reform Nazism and it will be a wonderful party.”

No, says Sina, “The only way to reform Islam is to throw away the Koran; 90 percent 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 traditional Muslim biographies of Muhammad, from which most historical information about his life and the early period of Islam is derived.

For this reason, Sina says, Western suggestions that extremism in Islam can be eradicated if certain imams are quieted, or if Muslims are encouraged to embrace the universalist elements of their faith – but without addressing the extremism inherent in the religion’s texts – are based on a mistaken comparison of Islam to Christianity.

“In the West, people ask whether Islam can undergo a reformation like the one that Christianity underwent. That’s a poor parallel,” he says. “In Christianity, it wasn’t the religion that needed to be reformed, but the church; what Jesus preached was good.”

On the other hand, Sina continues, “In Islam, it’s not the community that is bad, but the religion. Islam has nothing like ‘Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.’ Islam is full of hatred, and the hatred is in Muhammad himself. I argue in my book that Muhammad was insane – and that Muslims, by emulating him and by emulating his ways, his insanity is bequeathed to them.”

A great article. Read the rest in the Jerusalem Post.

    Insanity is bequeathed alright! Our righteousness is unto our children’s children and so is unrighteousness. You see it on a daily basis. “Sins of the father’s.” Only Godless people could believe in the Koran! I say 100% should be burned.

    What about the crusades? were they not violent? What about the things that happeneed to Native Americans? who the christian explorers called godless? Was that not violent? The Christians are one of the historically violent people in the world. This is ironic because Jesus’s whole message was to be nice to each other (or something along those lines). The islamics that are violent aren’t islamics at all. They are just extremists. Calling them islamics is like saying the K.K.K. and Westboro baptists are christians.

      Well may you ask about the Crusades and the fate of the rightful owners of the American continent (although they would not have seen themselves quite in that light). Well might you also have mentioned the Spanish Inquisition and a long list of other unspeakable events that stain human history. All in all, one is forced to the conclusion that wherever religion – certainly that of the Abrahamic persuasion – has trod, death and suffering have been in close attendance. Of course, it will be argued that those who eventually came to dominate North America did not do so in the spirit of evangelism, yet they were essentially of the Christian faith who held the indigenous peoples to be savages – akin to modern Muslims viewing non-Muslims as infidels – and even now regard the land they won as God’s Own Country, or some such thing. The victors are proud of their great country, but have misgivings about the manner of its winning. They do not hide the truth, nor do they hide from it. They recognise the excesses of their forebears, this recognition springing from their steady development into modern people determined to benefit from the mistakes of the past. How very unlike Islam, that stagnant primordial pond of primitive notions whose adherents continue to strive to establish a universal dystopia. See the difference?

       Yeah, sure, all those things make it okay for muslims to be violent assholes TODAY.

      Tell ya what, spanky, since islamics are violent today I’m going to be violent too. They’re doing it so don’t you dare tell me I’m wrong. I’ll tell you: “What about jihadists? Are they not violent? What about the things that happened to the Natives of what is now called Turkey? Who the MUSLIM mongols called godless? Was that not violent?” By your logic it’s okay or no big deal for me to be doing it to. Using your logic I’m just an “extremist.”


      Key difference between Christianity and islam: Jesus was a peacenik. muhammad was a violent psychopathic asshole.

      Saying jihadists are extremist muslims is like calling the nazis who worked in the death camps extremist nazis.

      Again: Jesus:  peaceful hippy who preached love ALL. muhammad: psychopathic, woman hating douchebag who preached KILL ALL WHO DO NOT CALL ME PROPHET. hitler psychopathic, Jew hating, non-aryan hating douchebag who preached KILL ALL WHO ARE NOT LIKE ME.

      Jesus: Killed no one. muhammad: killed THOUSANDS at the behest of his MAKE BELIVE sky monster. hitler: killed millions at the behest of his MAKE BELIEVE delusions of grandeur.

      The case for this “moral relativism” fails spectacularly on two points. Most important point being what crusaders did ages ago does not make it okay for muslims to be the assholes they are today. Two is also important and that is the inspiration for the two ideologies: Jesus and muhammad. There could not be two more obvious polar opposites than those two. Jesus: nice guy. muhammad: complete and utter douchebag extraordinaire. Logic dictates that a nice guy would inspire people who want to emulate him to be nice and an utter douchebag would inspire people who not only want to emulate him but are COMMANDED BY THEIR IDEOLOGY to emulate him would also be utter douchebags.

      Now, when you figure out how to be intellectually honest, come back and try again.

      The Crusades were a response to the Muslim conquest of the Holy Lands, making the Muslims the original Occupiers. Extremists call themselves jihadists. Jihad is an Arab, Islamic concept, found in no other culture, or religion. All Muslims that aren’t involved in jihad, support the jihadists, whether they want to or not, just by being Muslims, because Islam itself is designed to support jihad. And many Muslims are assisting jihad by infiltrating Western countries, and establishing Muslim ghettos, no go zones, where Islam rules, in the midst of most European cities. What Islam doesn’t conquer with the sword, it finds other ways to conquer.
