Muslim TV ads misquote George Bernard Shaw

A group called MyPeace is about to air TV ads in Australia promoting Islam as a religion of peace. The ads quote George Bernard Shaw allegedly saying that Muhammad was the "saviour of humanity".

But apparently Shaw actually thought that Islam was "ferociously intolerant". Who knew?

Ads for Islam 'misquote Shaw from bogus book'
[In fact] Shaw described the religion in a 1933 letter to Rev Ensor Walters as “ferociously intolerant”.

“Mahomet rose up at the risk of his life and insulted the stones (that the Arabs worshipped) shockingly, declaring that there is only one God, Allah, the glorious and the great . . . And there was to be no nonsense about toleration,” Shaw wrote.

“You accepted Allah or you had your throat cut by someone who did accept him, and who went to Paradise for having sent you to Hell.”
I am shocked, totally shocked!
