Prophetic Analysis from staringattheview.blogspot.com

Imagine that three individuals were each commissioned to prepare the psychological profile of a self-appointed religious prophet who founded a tightly-knit community in Arizona in the mid-1800's.

The prophet, soon after the death of his wife of 25 years, began having dreams about the six-year-old daughter of his best friend and persuaded the friend that God had told him to marry her. He later used the same God-told-me-so line to convince his adopted son to divorce his attractive wife so he could marry her as well. The community was polygamous, but the prophet was the only man who could have as many women as he wanted.

The community had few financial resources, so the prophet developed the idea of robbing stagecoaches and trains that passed through the area. Slavery was legal within the community, and the people who were not killed on these raids were used and sold as slaves. Male members of the community had full sexual access to the female slaves.

The prophet's ambitions were much larger than the few hundred converts he garnered his first few years. He fully expected all the people of the area to accept his prophethood and join the community. When some refused, he turned viciously against them. Eight hundred men were killed in one day, and the rest were driven to outlying regions. When he realized that his people did not have the agricultural and industrial resources to provide for the needs of the community, he came up with a new strategy. He again attacked the people he had recently driven away, this time allowing them to live in exchange for giving him fifty percent of their produce.

Ali Sina is a brave man, and he make some interesting observations about the various mental illnesses and pathologies Muhammed exhibited. Unfortunately he isn't a very good writer and the book is a bit repetitive. Having said that, I do think this is a very important book and should be read by anyone who wants to understand the danger we face from this cult masquerading as a "Religion of Peace".

If people weren't so afraid of Islamic bullies in academia, we would see more analysis of Islam's fairly sordid origins.

It's pretty clear from the Mohammedans who wrote reviews here, they didn't read the book, nor will they, because they aren't allowed to.

I have read many, many books about Muhammad and Islam trying to understand why the followers of this "religion" are so hateful, intolerant and perpetually angry. Why was Muhammad so cruel, manipulative, domineering and apathetic? How did he amass so many followers completely willing to stop thinking rationally and allow themselves to commit horrible atrocities? How is it that after 1400 years the attitudes haven't changed? This is by far the best information available.

Dr. Ali Sina is a former Iranian Muslim who operates a website called faithfreedom.org to educate both Muslims and non-Muslims about the dangers of following this cult. His book explains in depth the very likely psychological and physical problems suffered by Muhammad. The most obvious being Narcissitic Personality Disorder or NPD. Defined by DSM as a pattern of grandiosity, need for admiration, and sense of entitlement. Often individuals feel overly important and will exaggerate achievements and will accept, and often demand, praise and admiration despite worthy achievements. Other criteria such as being obsessed with fantasies of unlimited success, fame, fearsome power or omnipotence; interpersonally exploitative; devoid of empathy; arrogant;constantly envious are all descriptors of Muhammed. What is worse is that this personality disorder seems to have been bequeathed to his followers througout it's existance and we are seeing it in abundance today.

Had I not taken the advice of several of the above reviewers, perhaps I would have passed up this rational and unrefuted psychological examination of Mohammad and the true explanation of what (and why) muslims think and act as they do. I've never read anything as compelling with the potential of freeing enslaved minds as well as shaking up Islamic apologists.

I'll never view another news story, read another account of Islamic culture or history without appreciating and applying what I have learned. Muslims will continue to threaten Ali Sina with hell. Nothing in this work dissuades a person from a belief in God but I imagine readers will never again be able to keep a serious face when someone says Mohammad's Allah is God Almighty, creator of the universe. No question Islam is a house of cards and will soon collapse.

Buy the book, buy it new, I imagine his security costs are high. You'll benefit by acquiring one more degree of understanding above these cultists that may in time be used to help them and all of civilization.
