The religion of peace...?
Islam is believed to have been created by the Prophet Mohammed in the 6th century. It is said that he lived in Mecca, Saudi Arabia as a merchant.
No one knows why Islam was created: was it a valid spiritual experience, was it to civilize the Arabs? Or, was it to complete with Judaism and Christianity, to be a strong arm for the Vatican or to partake in capitalism and the wealth creation?
The association with Islam today for most people is the war that has been going on in the Middle East for the past generation and it seems to be getting worse. But not only that, terrorist groups like ISIL and Al Shebab are openly declaring war on non-Muslims and even Muslims that they don't like.
As well as this Europe is undergoing a process of Islamification. In Germany the idea of sexiness is being banished, people making satirical comments against Islamist leaders are being taken to the court, the European mafia are recruiting volatile men from the refugees flooding into Europe. In short, Europe is becoming a very dangerous place and tourists are being advised to stay away.
However this page is not for me to write about Islam, the videos below are by international experts as like me, you probably want to have a peaceful world to live in and the future for your children. All these videos define Islam and what it means for your country and community when Islam comes to call.
The 13th-century scholar Thomas Aquinas, regarded as one of the most eminent medieval philosophers and theologians, offered a biting critique of Islam based in large part on the questionable character and methods of its founder, Mohammed.
According to Aquinas, Islam appealed to ignorant, brutish, carnal men and spread not by the power of its arguments or divine grace but by the power of the sword.
Aquinas, a keen observer of the human condition, was familiar with the chief works of the Muslim philosophers of his day–including Avicenna, Algazel, and Averroes–and engaged them in his writings.
Since Islam was founded and spread in the seventh century, Aquinas—considered by Catholics as a saint and doctor of the Church—lived in a period closer to that of Mohammed than to our own day.
In one of his most significant works, the voluminous Summa contra gentiles, which Aquinas wrote between 1258 and 1264 AD, the scholar argued for the truth of Christianity against other belief systems, including Islam.

An older history
The world's oldest civilisation existed in modern day India that also included Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Myanmar and Malaysia. Hinduism or to be more correct we should say Vedanta was a unifying influence across much of the world including what we now refer to as the Middle East. Religious historians have been able to trace the development of all of what we call religion back to India and what people commonly call Hinduism today.
