ABC paints beautiful image over ... intolerant Muhammad

ABC News has a lovely photo: Prayers on Mount Arafat
A Muslim pilgrim prays at Mount Arafat, south-east of the Saudi holy city of Mecca, on November 15, 2010. At least 2 million pilgrims flooded into the Arafat plain from Mecca and Mina before dawn for a key ritual around the site where Prophet Mohammed gave his farewell sermon on this day in the Islamic calendar 1,378 years ago. Pilgrims spend the day at Arafat in reflection and reading the Koran or Muslim holy book.
Oh but, Dear Aunty, why were there no beautiful words of Mohammed's last sermon to accompany the beautiful picture? You must have overlooked it so, in the interest of interfaith dialogue, let me fill the gap.

Geert Wilders Berlin Speech
A dispassionate study of the beginnings of Islamic history reveals clearly that Muhammad’s objective was first to conquer his own people, the Arabs, and to unify them under his rule, and then to conquer and rule the world. That was the original cause; it was obviously political and was backed by military force. “I was ordered to fight all men until they say ‘There is no god but Allah,’” Muhammad said in his final address. He did so in accordance with the Koranic command in sura 8:39: “Fight them until there is no more dissension and the religion is entirely Allah’s.”
What!? Sorry, sorry. I forgot Wilders is a Nazi trouble maker. Let me go direct to a reputable source ...

The Farewell Sermon - Wikipedia
The Farewell Sermon also known as the Prophet's Final Sermon or The Last Sermon, was delivered by Muhammad (peace be upon him) on 9 Dhu al-Hijjah, 10 AH (632) in the Uranah valley of Mount Arafat (in Mecca, seventy-two days before his death, at the end of his final pilgrimage.

The Farewell Sermon is mentioned in almost all books of Hadith. Sahih Al-Bukhari refers to the sermon and quotes part of it...
Al-Buwhat? Oh, I found it ....

Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Book 2
Volume 1, Book 2, Number 25:

Narrated Ibn 'Umar:

Allah's Apostle said: "I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah's Apostle, and offer the prayers perfectly and give the obligatory charity, so if they perform that, then they save their lives and property from me except for Islamic laws and then their reckoning (accounts) will be done by Allah."
Awww, such lovely words. Now wouldn't that picture look so much better with those words beside it?

And here's a beautiful video by Robert Spencer all about Muhammad's beautiful deeds to go with the beautiful photo.

What!? Sorry, sorry, I forgot Spencer is a Nazi too. Sheesh, they're everywhere.

OK, I finally found a beautiful video. It turns out Wilders and Spencer were right, Muhammad was an intolerant psycho, but it's OK because Islam became peaceful after him. The answer is in this video...

What has changed since Charles Martel in 732 AD?

Here is the quote about the exact date that Islam became peaceful:
The same threat from 732 AD still exists today, nothing has changed, except we don't have Charles Martel to protect us any longer. But what we do have are insane politicians that don't stop them at the borders, but import them, import their culture, and import the very same extremism that is responsible for all the death and bloodshed before and after 9/11. And for what reason is this being done? For cheap labour?
What!? Oh, oh, oh ...
Now I get it.
Best leave that pretty picture all by itself.
My bad.

File under: the ideology of beautiful pictures masks an evil prophet, but it is a pretty picture, and that's what counts.
