ALL of Islam derives from Mohammed and nowhere else. Even aspects of Islam that appear to derive from Christianity and Judaism are actually corrupted versions of those religions which have been twisted and perverted to suit Mohammed's psychopathic agenda.
By our standards, Mohammed's actions were evil. But Muslims live in a different moral universe from the rest of us, where the very definition of good and evil are determined by what Mohammed (the Perfect man) did and said. Islam aims to completely destroy the conscience and free will of the Muslim and replace it with the cloned behavior of a psychopathic megalomaniac.
The Golden Rule or Ethic of Reciprocity is the basis of all religions apart from Islam (and maybe Satanism). It says 'Treat others as you would like to be treated' or 'That which is hateful to you, do not do to another'.
But in Islam, the 'Ethic of Reciprocity' applies only to Muslims. The nearest approximation to the Golden Rule is "None of you truly believes until he wishes for his brother what he wishes for himself". In other words, share the booty equally with your fellow (male) Muslims.
In contrast, Allah encourages murder, rape, pillage, extortion, parasitism and enslavement of non-Muslims, who are 'najis' subhumans to be treated as expendable garbage. Reciprocity does not extend beyond the global gang (Ummah). Muslim ethics are the ethics of the Mafia.
Islam is not about following one's conscience, but about correct behavior. If one imitates the behaviors of Mohammed (The Perfect Man), then one has done all that is required to be a good Muslim. Hence ethical principles, as we understand them, are not a part of Islam.
With no system of morality or ethics as we would understand it, the greatest good is to work towards Islam's domination of the entire world , and to achieve this objective any means are justified, just as Mohammed was vicious and ruthless in using any means to spread his cult.
Mohammed murdered, tortured, raped, looted, lied and extorted to further the expansion of Islam, and his modern followers do exactly the same.
Divinely approved thuggery
As there is no room for conscience in Islam; any personal ideas of right or wrong are heretical. Right and wrong are determined solely by what Mohammed did or said. Mohammed is the 'Perfect Man' and role model for all Muslims for all time.
Therefore, the objective of every jihadist is to become a ruthless, mindless robotic clone of Mohammed, a killing machine programmed to react in the way that he would. There is no morality to be found in Islam, just a set of conditioned responses and endlessly repetitive obsessive-compulsive rituals around tribal totems, taboos and mumbo-jumbo, which serve to further retard the clones' critical mental faculties.
And just as the psychopath Mohammed murdered, raped, tortured, plundered and lied to spread his cult, driven by his all-consuming need to dominate , so his modern clones do the same, including the torture, rape and mass-murder of children - all done without the slightest feelings of guilt or remorse in the knowledge that they are pleasing to Allah.
Hatred of 'filthy infidels' is the pivot of Islamic existence
Jihadists are taught from infancy that non-Muslims are 'najis kafirs' - filthy unbelievers who may be exterminated as vermin. This dehumanisation of non-Muslims further destroys any vestiges of pity or compassion that the predatory jihadist may feel towards his victims. And since everything belongs to Allah, the land and property of the unbelievers are there for the taking by the true followers of the 'prophet'.
To be a good Muslim is to be a robotic clone of the original founder of the the cult, whom you must emulate in every way, and in the process destroy your own individuality, judgement and conscience. Muslims try to ape Mohammed's behavior down to the tiniest details. For example, one of the Four Imams, Abmad ibn Hanbal, was a great Traditionalist. It is stated that he would not eat water-melons because, although he knew that the 'Prophet' ate them, he could not learn whether the 'Prophet' ate them with or without the rind, or whether he broke, bit or cut them.
Islam is not about right and wrong thinking but correct behaviour. If one imitates the behaviours of Mohammed, then one is observant and submissive. Morality is not a part of Islam. If there is a more fundamental difference between Islam and all other creeds and religions I do not know of it. It is so alien that the reader will have to consider its implications for some time to grasp the full meaning of it.
The Ummah has effectively only one brain for 1.2 billion people, and that brain belongs to Mohammed.
The Muslim has no need for a conscience, because Mohammed's example determines what is right or wrong. If he wants to rape a nine year old girl or slaughter a few hundred kuffar then he will not be bothered by a guilty conscience, because the 'perfect man' has set the precedents.
Islam produces swarms of mindless mobotic clones programmed to emulate a seventh century psychopath.
Islam cannot spread or even maintain itself without violence: violence to those who attempt to leave Islam, violence to those who criticise Islam, and violence to those who refuse to be subjugated by Islam.
Islam has been a terrorist cult since it was founded. Mohammed said "I have been made victorious with terror"
Now since Mohammed is 'the perfect man' and role model for all Muslims, it follows that terrorists have divine approval for what they do. All that stuff about a 'tiny minority of extremists' is a load of taqiyya. Terrorism is mainstream, bog-standard orthodox Islam. The more Muslims you have in a country, the greater the incidence of terrorism.
Obsessive hatred of infidels
"Islam is the only religion which is more obsessed with unbelievers than it is with its own followers. Muslims define their own identity solely in opposition to the Kuffar. Islamic accomplishments are so negligible that they have no positive cultural features with which they can identify. Hence the unceasing and implacable aggression toward civilized peoples and envy of their accomplishments. The development and deliberate cultivation of hatred is such a central feature of Islam that there is nothing that we Kuffars can do, or not do, that would make our univited guests hate us any less or any more.
Rage is so intrinsic to Islam that external events are irrelevant. Hatred of non-Moslems is the pivot of Islamic existence. Muslims are bound together by a shared and carefully nurtured animosity to 'The Other' developed from earliest childhood, which ignites a permanent fire of tension between Moslems and non-Moslems. Ever since Jihadists started immigrating into the West, we have become all too familiar with concepts such as 'Killing the unbelievers wherever you find them' and the tribal polarities of Dar al-Harb versus Dar al-Islam , Ummah versus Kuffar etc."
The difference between predatory cults such as Islam and real religions, is that a true religion attempts to bring out the best in people, whereas a predatory cult does the opposite.
Muslims inhabit a different moral universe from the rest of us, where good is evil and evil is good, if it serves the purposes of Islam.
While other religions teach goodwill to mankind, Islam teaches hostility to all non-members of the cult.
Jesus, in the parable of the Good Samaritan, taught his followers to help all people in need, irrespective of their religion. Jews are commanded to be a light unto the nations. The Buddha taught compassion for all suffering beings.
But in Islam, charity applies only to fellow Muslims, and in fact many Islamic charities are money-launderers for jihad.There is no Golden Rule in Islam. There is no place for conscience in Islam. Peel away the thin veneer of religiosity, and all you find is vicious, primitive, predatory tribalism.
As well as the various forms of organized premeditated jihad, Muslims are psychologically primed to be opportunist jihadists, spontaneously attacking their prey like packs of hyenas as soon as they sense they have the numerical advantage. Islam legitimizes and encourages predatory attacks on infidels.
This kind of spontaneous, opportunistic jihad is exemplified by the 'Street Jihad' attacks in Europe, and Islamic gang rapes such as that of Lara Logan.
Most religions have a restraining influence on anti-social behavior, but Islam has precisely the opposite effect due to deliberate destruction of the conscience.
Islam incites and excuses crime against infidels. Because of their arrogant sense of supremacy and automatic entitlement, Muslims regard infidels not as fellow human beings, but as walking opportunities for plunder , parasitism and rape .
Islam is not a religion. It is an international criminal conspiracy like the Mafia .
There is no moral equivalence
Those people who use the moral equivalence argument to compare Islam with other religions, need to examine their own subconscious psychological motives. They are not only attempting to delude others, but are in deep denial and trying to delude themselves.
The conscious part of the argument takes the form "Christians and Jews have committed atrocities such as the McVeigh, Breivik and King David Hotel bombings, so Christianity and Judaism are just the same as Islam. Therefore Islam poses no special threat."
The fallacies are obvious: Christian and Jewish acts of terrorism are rare and infrequent; they are rejected by the majority of followers of the religions, go against the core teachings of the religions, and are committed by a few isolated loonies. In contrast, Islamic acts of terrorism are commonplace, are encouraged by the Koran and are supported, if not actually carried out, by a substantial proportion of Muslims.
The unconscious and self-deluding part of the moral equivalence argument is the refusal to face the fact that Islam is an intrisically violent totalitarian ideology that has infiltrated our civilization, and is bent on our conversion, subjugation or elimination. To acknowlege this would be deeply disturbing and well outside the comfort zone of most people (remember the popular enthusiasm for appeasement of Hitler and 'Peace in Our Time'?) . So we reassure ourselves, by the moral equivalence argument, that Islam is just like other religions.
It's far easier to stay in denial and regard Islam as being no more threat to our lives and culture than the Quakers or Lubavitcher Hasidim. That way we don't have to worry about the looming global clash of civizations, or think about the unpleasant courses of action that may be necessary to reduce the threat. We can leave that for our children to sort out.
