If there was ever a time when Islam could be thrust into the limelight of American culture, that time is now. One need only hear and see the daily ramblings of the news media to realize that our world is changing at such a rate it is almost impossible to keep up. The people and things that played such a large part in making this the greatest country in the world are being thrown out of our history books and replaced by mindless entertainment and seemingly meaningless information designed to eliminate any real possibility that Truth exists. Add to that a generation of young people who prefer to spend much of their time in a cyber world of imagination and relinquish the responsibilities required for maintaining our free society and we are a nation ripe for the picking. I am reminded of the words of Abraham Lincoln who said: “Freedom is not the ability to do what you want to do; it’s the power to do what you ought to do.”
The infectious rise of Islam in the western world has taken advantage of this new trend toward historical irrelevancy, and has found an audience so unsure that Truth even exists that they spend billions each year to defend and protect the very things that are out to destroy us as a nation. Nothing highlights that fact more than the recent Iran agreement that is being pushed on the American people by an administration that cares more about their legacy than it does about our nation and the people they vowed to protect. Somewhere along the line they decided that ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ was a good story to build upon when framing the American Philosophy for the 21st Century: as long as the person in the nightgown says they are Grandma we can trust them. I can hear the sounds of wolves lining up for a room and a bed. Especially those who come from the deserts of the Arab world.
However, there are still a few scholars who have not sold their souls in the Marketplace of Grant Funding, some of whom have decided to apply their skills to discovering if Islam is what it claims to be, and if the religion and it’s prophet can stand unscathed in the light of True History. They are asking questions about the real origins of Islam and putting it under the microscope of genuine research seeking one thing and one thing only: discover the historical proof that supports the claims of Islam, it’s supposed prophet Muhammad and its holy book, ‘The Qur’an’?
One such scholar is British historian and author Tom Holland who in 2012 produced a documentary of his search to answer these questions from a non-partisan perspective. The answers he discovered reveal the very real possibility that Muhammad was possibly a construct of several Arab leaders and that Islam has very little proof of its existence before a half century after the date attributed to Muhammad death. It is worth nothing that his documentary has been banned in Britain.
At the center of Islamic worship is the claim that Mecca is the place where Muhammad received his vision and revelations, but is that true and if so, why doesn’t history have some proofs to back it up? This 77 minute documentary is well worth the time required to view it. I highly recommend that you watch the documentary which can be found at this link. Islam: the Untold Story
I also want to recommend another another website which I consider to be the best resource on the Internet for the truth on the subject of the historical claims of Islam. History of Mecca Please take the time to look at the movie and I highly recommend my friends website for a thorough picture of the History of Mecca and what that means to the world today.
