The Koran is in my view, mankind's most odious, disastrous, unlettered, and fascistic document. In support of worshiping Baal the Al-Lah, or Lord Of Mecca, the Koran sanctions hate, racism, war, Jihad, misogyny, murder, discrimination and supremacism. Not even Mein Kampf achieved so much intolerance and fascistic paganism in its illiterate ravings. There is a very good argument to be made that Muhammad, whose family were the caretakers of the Baal shrine, becomes conflated and confused with the Lord or Al-Lah. Thus Muhammad is really the Allah or Lord. Certainly the Koran demands meek submission to Muhammad, as well as Baal. It astonishing that a cult to a single mad man, one who whored, warred, slaughtered, murdered, raped and sex slaved, is now deemed to be 'religious'.
The Kabaa shrine or primitive cube which housed the Arab pantheon of 'Gods' contained 360 idols. The Chief or Lord of these was Baal or Hu'Baal in Arabic. Baal in Mecca was the male moon deity, and was associated with Sin the Lord of the Moon, in Babylonian culture. Babylonian and Mesopotamian influences were rampant in Arabia. In the Old Testament Baal and its attendant pagan culture of blood, sacrifices, sexual deviancy, immorality and sloth is associated quite rightly, with evil. The Canaanites worshiped Baal and the excesses of their cult were used by the Hebrews as examples of how not to live a proper life.
Muhammad's family took care of the Baal shrine at Mecca. How convenient that the Lord of Mecca would choose Muhammad as its spokesman and most important human in history.
"The Quraysh tribe into which Muhammad was born was particularly devoted to Allah..." (Islamic Invasion, Morey, p.51). Before Muhammad was ever born, his tribe worshipped Allah, and he was the chief God of Mecca: "Its been pointed out that Mecca was in the control of the Quraysh tribe into which Muhammad was born" (ibid., pp.39-40). Since they were in control of Mecca, it was only right that their God was chief of the Kaaba in Mecca.”
"In pre-Islamic days, called the Days of Ignorance, the religious background of the Arabs was pagan, and basically animistic. Through wells, trees, stones, caves, springs, and other natural objects man could make contact with the deity...At Mekka, Allah was the chief of the gods and the special deity of the Quraish, the prophet's tribe. Allah had three daughters: " (Van Ess, John, Meet the Arab, New York, 1943, p. 29)
Collier's Encyclopedia under "Allah" writes "...there were among the Arabs, long before the emergence of Islam worshippers of a supreme god known as Allah, and the Koran (13:17; 29:61; 31:24 [These show that the Pagan Arab and Muhammad worshipped the same Deity])
Zwemer writes: "But history establishes beyond the shadow of a doubt that even the pagan arabs before Muhammad time, knew the chief god by the name of Allah...ilah is used for any god and Al-ilah (contracted to Allah, i.e, the god), was the name of the supreme. Among the Arabs this term denoted the chief God of three hundred and sixty idols...As final evidence, we have the fact that centuries before Muhammad the Arabian Kaaba, the temple at Mecca, was called Beit Allah, the House of God..." (Muhammad is Mecca, pp.25-26, 31-36).
The Allah deity had a wife, named Allat who was the Sun goddess. Manat and 'Uzza were their 2 daughters representing the moon and Venus. The entire family of Allah was worshiped until Muhammad commanded that there was no God but the Allah or Baal, and that all idols must be smashed and broken.
The Encyclopedia of Religion of Ethics under "Allah" writes, "..as Prof. Nokleke has shown...Muhammad found the Meccans believing in a supreme god whom they called Allah...with Allah however they associated minor deities [called] the daughters of Allah. Mohammed's reform was to assert the solitary existence of Allah. The first article of the Muslim creed, therefore 'La-ilaha illa-Llahu-means only as addresses by him to the Meccans 'There exist no god except the one whom you already called Allah" (Hastings, p.326).
'Already called Allah'. This is an article of faith propounded by Moslem cult devotees. Allah or the Baal deity, had existed in Arabia for some 3000 years before the time of Muhammad. Moon worship was rampant in the Near East and Arabia. Muhammad's madness 'invented' the celebration of Baal-ism, and monotheism devoted to slavery demanded by Baal and Muhammad, of their subjects, their followers, their knaves. There is a good reason why Muhammad was murdered in 632 AD, fat, covered in gold, head buried into his private sex harem. Even a slave can become tired of the master's insanity and constant and quite convenient 'revelations' from his family idol.
What excuses do present day Moslems offer, in their slavish devotion to Mein Koran und Mein Fuehrer?
