Was Muhammad a force of good or evil? Thatâ€™s the question British author, broadcaster, and professing Muslim Rageh Omaar promises to investigate in the early moments of the new documentary, The Life of Muhammad, airing on PBS beginning August 20. If Omaar seems to have a conflict of journalistic interest regarding the subject, itâ€™s no more so than the filmâ€™s director Faris Kermani, writer Ziauddin Sardar, or executive producer Aaqil Ahmed (also the Head of Religion & Ethics at the BBC, and the man who originally commissioned the project). All are Muslims.
This isnâ€™t to suggest that those who follow Islam shouldnâ€™t have had rolesâ€”even major rolesâ€”in a documentary aimed at the general public about Islamâ€™s founder. Itâ€™s only to point out that almost no one associated with the movie seems to have been in a position to approach the question with much skepticism. Even the name of the production...
This points out the arrogance and dangerous presumption of the Western intelligentsia (or Left). Anyone with a grain of discernment and objectivity must readily recognize the militaristic, obvious political, and oppressive nature of Mohamed and those who would follow. Islam means "submit" or "submission" without any guidance of love, compassion, or mercy attached. Allah is the Arabic version of the monotheistic deist movement. Basically, you submit and without assurance either, you may go to paradise. There is no direction, real hope, or transcendental peace or true notions of holiness or justice in the Islamic religion. It strikes me how much fervor and focused attack there is on Christianity as a whole and the Crusades in particular. You read of the greed, slaughter and misguidance of the crusaders, but hardly a peep of WHY was there a crusade. Why is it that Vlad the Impaler (historic figure who became the Dracula/vampire myth) impaled the Muslim Ottoman Turks? Was it out of insanity or evil? Or was it because the Muslim hoards were trail blazing across the ME and he went out of his to stop them. I am telling you Islam is the devils version of Christianity and Mohamed the (anti) Christ.
