"Islam teaches tolerance, not hatred; universal
brotherhood, not enmity; peace, and not violence."
- Pervez Musharraf

"Energy is the basis of everything. Every Jew,
no matter how insignificant, is engaged in some

Did you see the 14-minute trailer for the new
anti-Mohammed-Movie? I did, and let me give
you my review: The producer of that film
probably never took a film course, as the
production values are offensively inept.
Furthermore, the script is vile, as is every
aspect of the production. View the clip:

No movie theatre owner expecting to sell popcorn
would have ever booked that film for a run. The
closest those people might ever come to a run
are the runs one might get ingesting mycobacterium
paratuberculosis from Johne's-infected cows. See
yesterday's Notmilk letter:

Even in certain areas of Idaho populated by militia-folk
who do not discriminate (they equally hate Muslims, Jews,
Hispanics, gays, circus clowns, and every member of Congress
with the exceptions of Ron and Rand Paul), there are few who
would stand up to applaud this pathetic attempt at movie-making.
Dino DeLaurentis might have made such a film - - at age four.

Spielberg could have produced such a work as a young child
while simultaneously spilling the contents of his stomach
on day-one of an infectious food poisoning. If there is
genius in film-making, this film is exactly the opposite.

What was the producer of this anti-Islamic movie thinking?
By asking that question, I would be assuming that he
has the ability to think. My guess is that he possesses zero
functioning neural transmitting substances within the synapses
of his neurons.

This man clearly lacks serotonin and acetylcholine, and
the dendrites of his neurons must have been created with
silly putty and coated with K-Y jelly.

After watching the garbage trailer which has already resulted
in dozens of worldwide riots and murders, there can be just
one conclusion: The producer is a special needs cretin
who occupies the gold-medal position of the podium for
unskilled, clumsy, incompetent, and amateurish behavior.

Although not much is known about the early life
of the Prophet Mohammed, it is well accepted that
he was born in Mecca in the year 570 AD, died in
Medina in 632, and became the founder of Islam
in the year 622 at the age of 52.

We do not know what religion Mohammed practiced
during his early years, or what religious principles
helped him to found Islam, but we do know that
the Judaic 5 books of Moses were major texts
influencing the Qur'an. Both Jews and Muslims
believe that Adam and Noah were Prophets as well
as the three founding fathers of Judaism; Abraham,
Isaac, and Jacob. Isaac's older brother Ishmael was
added as an additional holy man for good measure.

The Bar Mizvah (ceromony at which a Jewish boy reaches
manhood at age 13) is not mentioned in the Bible,
but the tradition of Bar Mitzvah began about 500
years before the birth of Christ, and about 1,000
years before the birth of Mohammed. In either case,
the Bar Mitzvah had become tradition for all males
studying Torah and the Jewish prophets.

Was it then, in his youth, that Mohammed (like
Jesus) celebrated a Bar Mitzvah? What do the words
Bar Mitzvah translate as? ""Son of Commandment. In
Judaism, when maturing from boy to man, Jewish males are
commanded to do good deeds just as Jesus and Mohammed
dedicated themselves to do as their life work.

Although Gutenberg's Press was completed in 1440,
the first printing device was developed in China
four hundred years earlier. The earliest known
printed book was published in China in 868. Before
that time, religious texts were transcribed by hand,
and one copy would take many years to be duplicated.

In order to memorize the religious texts which were not
removed from houses of worship, Mohammed would have
had to spend many years studying those documents
before establishing what is today, the most observed
religion in this world, Islam, with 1.5 billion

One must assume then, that before Mohammed was
visited by the angel Raphael and given his visions
by Allah, he had a basic understanding of the
Jewish writings of the Torah. In fact, much of the
tradition and teaching of both early Judaism and
Islam are virtually identical.

That adoration includes the gifts of the Ten
Commandments and Kosher and Kashrut dietary laws
observed by both devout Muslims and Jews.

These two major religions have one very powerful
ethical and moral concept in common: Compassion to
Animals. Of course, that is in theory, but it is
also in writing for the compassionate followers
of each religion to obey.

It is interesting to me how, through personal
experience, I have learned that a minority of
passionate advocates of one religion or another
rarely read the spiritual works upon their
religions are based. That includes Seventh-day
Adventists (who adore Ellen White but rarely
read her work), members of the Church of the
Latter Day Saints who are not as familiar with
the Book of Mormon as they should be, Reformed
Jews who do not know Torah as well as Conservative
or Orthodox Jews, and in the case of Islam, a
minority of those passionately practicing the
Muslim religion and believing that Allah is God
and that Mohammed is his Prophet while re-writing
the holy written word of love and replacing it
with the misunderstanding of hate and lack of

Having read the Koran and Torah and New Testament
and Koran, and much of the work of Ellen White,
I conclude that all religions are about compassion.
All religions have one very basic similarity;
The Golden Rule:

Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.

Those who do not practice this rule are not true to
the spirit of their God by not extending dignity
equally to all men and women.

"Some people like the Jews, and some do not. But
no thoughtful man can deny the fact that they are,
beyond any question, the most formidable and the
most remarkable race which has appeared in the world."
- Winston Churchill

"We would betray our values and play into our
enemies' hands if we were to treat Muslims
differently than anyone else. In fact, to cave
to popular sentiment would be to hand a victory
to the terrorists, and we should not stand for that."
- Michael Bloomberg
