Scriptures from the New Testament
With Commentary by Acharya S
Christian Enmity and Hatred
Do not think that I have
come to bring peace on earth; I have not come to bring
peace, but with a sword. For I have come to set a man
against his father, and a daughter against her mother,
and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a
man's foes will be those of his own household. He who
loves father or mother more than me is not worthy.
All this enmity from the
"Prince of Peace!"
Woe to you, Chorazin! woe to
you, Bethsaida! ...But I tell you, it shall be more
tolerable on the day of judgment for Tyre and Sidon than
for you. And you, Capernaum, will you be exalted to
heaven? You shall be brought down.
And every one who has left
houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or
children or lands, for my name's sake, will receive a
hundred-fold, and inherit eternal life. (Mt. 19:29)
By definition, Jesus is
a cult leader - and a very effective one with big

division; for henceforth in one house there will be five
divided, three against two and two against three; they
will be divided, father against son and son against
father, mother against daughter and daughter against
mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and
daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. (Lk.
Phew! That's a lot "againsts"!
If anyone comes to me and
does not hate his own father and mother and wife and
children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own
life, he cannot be my disciple. (Lk. 14:26)
More cult brainwashing
For nation will rise up
against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there
will be famines and earthquakes in various places: all
this is but the beginning of the sufferings. (Mt.
Setting the stage - why
would any "good" and "omnipotent" God cause or allow
this to happen?
But I say to you that hear,
Love your enemies, do good to those who curse you... (Lk.

I tell you, on the day of
judgment men will render account for every careless word
they utter; for by your words you will be justified, and
by your words you will be condemned. (Mt. 12:36-37)
We can kill someone, as
long as we speak properly.
You are my friends if you do
what I command you. (Jn. 15:14)
Yeah, that's what I tell
all my friends too.
Let every person be subject
to the governing authorities. For there is no authority
except from God, and those that exist have been
instituted by God. Therefore he who resists the
authorities resists what God has appointed, and those
who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a
terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no
fear of him who is in authority? Then do what is good,
and you will receive his approval, for he is God's
servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid,
for he does not bear the sword in vain; he is the
servant of God to execute his wrath on the wrongdoer.
Therefore one must be subject, not only to avoid God's
wrath but also for the sake of conscience. For the same
reason you also pay taxes to whom taxes are due, revenue
to whom revenue is due, respect to whom respect is due,
honor to whom honor is due. (Romans 13:1-7)
Gee, I wonder who wrote
Be subject for the Lord's
sake to every human institution, whether it be to the
emperor as supreme, or to governors as sent by him to
punish those who do wrong and to praise those who do
right.... Fear God. Honor the emperor. (1 Pet. 2:17)
There's the answer.
Remind them to be submissive
to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready
for any honest work ...(Titus 3:1)
How convenient for the
Obey your leaders and submit
to them; for they are keeping watch over your souls, as
men who will have to give account. (Hebrews 13:17)
Truly Christianity is a
religion created by rabblerousers!
Render unto Caesar what is
Caesar's. (Mt. 22:21)
Now, in whose interest
would it be for "Jesus" to exhort people to give all
their money to the emperor?
Love does not insist on its

So why do Christians?
Christian Bigotry, Racism and Murderous
For what have I to do with
judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church
whom you are to judge? Go judge those outside. "Drive
out the wicked person from among you." (1 Cor. 5:12-13)
Jehovah's Witnesses says of this passage:
Bible-based practice of disfellowshipping unrepentant
wrongdoers has served to keep our worship clean and

It is actually reported that
there is immorality among you, and of a kind that is not
found even among pagans; for a man is living with his
father's wife.... Let him who has done this be removed
from among you.... with the power of Lord Jesus, you are
to deliver this man to Satan, for the destruction of the
flesh, that his spirit may be saved in the day of the

But I say to you, Do not
resist one who is evil. But if any one strikes you on
the right cheek, turn to him the other also. (Mt. 5:39)
Throw out the wicked one
from among you, but do not resist him? And not only a
pacifist but a masochist.
Woe to the world for
temptation! ...And if your hand or foot causes you to
sin, cut it off and throw it from you; it is better for
you to enter life maimed or lame than with two hands or
two feet to be thrown into the eternal fire. And if your
eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and throw it from
you; it is better for you to enter life with one eye
than with two eyes to be thrown into the hell of fire.

Blessed are the poor, for

The fact is that poverty

Therefore I tell you, do not

about your body, what you shall put on.... Sell your

But I want you to understand
that the head of every man is Christ, the head of every
woman is her husband, and the head of Christ is God....
any woman who prays or prophesies with her head unveiled
dishonors her head ...For if a woman will not veil
herself, then she should cut off her hair ...For a man
ought not to cover his head; since he is the image and
glory of God; but woman is the glory of man. (For man
was not made from woman, but woman from man. Neither was
man created for woman, but woman for man.) 1 Cor.
The idiotic and sexist
story of Adam and Eve turns science on its head by
making the man the creator of human life, rather than
the woman. Man is woman's God.
Wives, be submissive to your
husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is head of the
wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and
is himself its Savior. As the church is subject to
Christ, so let wives also be subject in everything to
their husbands. (Eph. 5:21-24)
Again, the man is
basically equivalent with God.
...the women should keep
silence in the churches. For they are not permitted to
speak, but should be subordinate, as even the law says.
If there is anything they desire to know, let them ask
their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman
to speak in church. (1 Cor. 14:34-35)
It is shameful for a
woman to BE in church in the first place.
Let a woman learn in silence
with all submissiveness. I permit no woman to teach or
have authority over men; she is to keep silent. For Adam
was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived,
but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.
Yet woman will be saved through bearing children, if she
continues in faith and love and holiness, with modesty.
(1 Tim. 11:15)
Yes, shut up and stay
pregnant. Very advanced.
Wives, be subject to your
husband, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your
wives, and do not be harsh with them. Children, obey
your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.
Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become
discouraged. Slaves, obey in everything those who are
your earthly masters, not with eye-service, as
men-pleasers, but in singleness of heart, fearing the
Lord. (Col. 3:18-22)
Sure, women, children
and slaves - put up with your indentured status, for
....and so train the young
women to love their husbands and children, to be
sensible, chaste, domestic, kind, and submissive to
their husbands, that the word of God may not be
discredited.... Bid slaves to be submissive to their
masters and to give satisfaction in every respect
It doesn't discredit the
word of God that women and children are to be slaves and
servants of men?
No one could learn that song
except the hundred and forty-four thousand who had been
redeemed from the earth. It is these who have not
defiled themselves with women, for they are chaste
So the 144,000 are all
men? And women are defiling. A gay heaven?
Slaves, be obedient to those
who are your earthly masters, with fear and trembling,
in singleness of heart, as to Christ ...(Eph. 6:5)
In other words, be happy
about your wretched state - and fearful!
Let all who are under the
yoke of slavery regard their masters as worthy of all
honor, so that the name of God and the teaching may not
be defamed. (1 Tim. 6)
Slavery itself doesn't
defame God's name?
Servants, be submissive to
your masters with all respect, not only to the kind and
gentle but to the overbearing. For one is approved if,
mindful of God, he endures pain while suffering
unjustly. For what credit is it, if when you do wrong
and are beaten for it you take it patiently? But if when
you do right and suffer for it you take it patiently,
you have God's approval. 1 Pet. 2:18-20
So, if God is "good" and
is in charge of everything, why does anyone suffer
unjustly? Unless God is a sadist, and we are meant to be

To get rid of the damning fact that

Because of their
capacity for distortion, the Jews are the most
fateful people in human history. In the course of
their operations they have hoodwinked mankind so
much that, even to this day, the Christian can feel
anti-Semitic without realizing that he himself is
the logical consequence of Judaism....
In the formulation of
Christianity, the art of concocting holy lies, which
is the essence of Jewishness, after many centuries
of earnest apprenticeship and practice in Judea, has
reached technical perfection. The Christian, who is
the last word in falsity, is the Jew repeating his
type - thrice a Jew.
Little super-Jews, fit
only for the madhouse, reversed all values to suit
themselves, as if the followers of Christ alone were

only possible because a species of megalomania,
similar to this one, and racially like it (orthodox
Jewish) was already in existence. When a division
appeared between official Jews and Christian Jews,
the latter had no alternative but to employ the
self-protective measures peculiar to the Jews
themselves, whereas the Jews had use it only against
Gentiles. The Christian is only a non-comformist Jew
In all our history

told that Christianity and the Jews were in
opposition; that Christ denounced the Jews; that the
Jews crucified Christ. Even today we are being told

This is, of course, one of the biggest hoaxes in the
history of the world. The facts are plainly there
for everyone to see. The Jews concocted Christianity
as their special poison to unhinge the minds of the
Romans so that they would no longer be able to

Quotes from Judaism
"Judaism is not a
religion but a Law religionized."
Some of these
quotes from Judaism are quite harsh. The quotes from
Jewish writings themselves are usually defended as
being "taken out of context" or "removed" with
apologies, and with the justification that such
sentiments were warranted because the Jews were
being persecuted. While the sentiment behind such
apologies may be genuine, the fact is that Judaism
itself is a plan for hegemony, as stated from the
very beginning, well attested in the Tenach or Old
Quotes from the Bible,
Talmud and Zohar (Kabbala)
Note: The disparaging
comments regarding non-Jews are expurgated from
various editions of the Talmud.
They are, however,
found in the
Soncino English translation of 1935. (Some of
these pages have been reproduced in
The Plot Against Christianity.) Where
they have been expunged, one can find an "o"
indicating "oral tradition," which means they are
still taught. Like it or not, Orthodox Judaism
fervently teaches ultimate supremacy over "the
nations," i.e., Gentiles, whom it pronounces as
Many Jews over the centuries,
especially those who are "non-practicing," have
exposed and apologized for these malicious comments
and supremacist attitude. (See concentration camp
survivor and Israeli citizen Prof. Israel Shahak's,
Jewish History, Jewish Religion.) They
are not to be held responsible; in many cases, they
were conditioned from birth and are appalled at the
mentality. Almost none of our "Jewish" friends agree
with this attitude, although some joke about it.
It is true that some of
these quotes have been taken out of context. We are
attempting here to find them and put them within
their context. Also, a number of these contentious
remarks are followed by mitigating commentary from
another rabbi (such as the quote about heathens
studying the Torah at Sanhedrin 59a).
Some of these
quotes are translated quite differently from version
to version, apparently at times softened. According
to Prof. Israel Shahak, the original Hebrew passages
possess greater vitriol than do the translations.
Because of the translation discrepancies, it is
difficult to verify these quotes. The verses
in dark blue
are confirmed to
be in the Soncino Talmud.
We have removed
some particularly incendiary remarks because they
cannot easily be verified. For more information
regarding apparently erroneous Talmudic quotes
please see the writings of
Further, it should be
noted that some of these texts, such as the Zohar,
Aruch, Yalkut, Tosefta and Soferim, may not be
contained within the Talmud proper but are
referenced therein, as "commentaries" and
"tractates" also considered "sacred texts." While
the Soncino Talmud quotes are represented verbatim
where possible, at least some of the statements
purportedly from these other texts represent
The text is frequently deliberately
difficult to follow, in Hebrew as well, such that it
needs to be simplified. (Such as concerns the use of
terms for non-Jews/Gentiles: "Cutheans,"
"Samaritans," "Egyptians," "Canaanites," "Karaites"
and "Minim," which refers to the "Judeo-Christian
heretics," also considered the "Sadducees."
"Heathens," of course, and "Goyim," are well-known
terms used in the Talmud. "Goyim," referring to
Gentiles, is said to mean "unclean.")
It should be also kept
in mind that much of the Talmud was orally taught
and/or written down long before pogroms and
persecution of Jews were common. Thus, the notion
that these anti-Gentile statements are a reaction to
such persecution is untrue. Indeed, it has been
suggested that the persecution was in large part on
account of such anti-Gentile sentiments and
behavior. For a rebuttal or apology of these quotes,
History of the Bible
The Old Testament was
compiled during the period from the sixth century
BCE to the first century CE. The New Testament was
compiled over a period of several hundred years
starting in the second century CE. The book
represents as a whole not "history" but mythology,
much of which was boldly plagiarized from other
cultures around the known world.
As Rabbi Lewis
Browne says in Stranger Than Fiction:
"The Bible is a
whole vast world of wisdom, beauty, and moral
truth – but it is not a chronicle of
literal history. Its episodes and
chronicles were in the mouths of desert
tribesmen for long centuries before ever they
were written down. For long centuries they were
passed on from father to son, growing grander
and more wonderful with each generation. So that
by the time they were set down in writing, the
literal truth in them, like the vein of gold in

in a thousand places."
These "episodes and

History of the Talmud
The Talmud, which is
also called the Torah (as is Pentateuch or first
five books of the Old Testament, while the entire OT
is the "Tenach"), represents the enormous
compilation of the writings and pronouncements of
many rabbis and others who felt the need to make a
commentary on just about every subject under the
sun. It often reads like neurotic bickering by
It, not the Old
Testament, is considered to be THE molding
literature that determines a Jew:
regarding the Jewish religion must be based on
the TALMUD as the final resume. . .. " (The
JEWS - Their History, Culture, and Religion,
Vol. 4, p. 1332, Jewish Publication Society
"The TALMUD is to
this day the circulating heart's blood of the
Jewish religion. Whatever laws, customs or
ceremonies we observe -- whether we are
Orthodox, Conservative, Reform or merely
spasmodic sentimentalists -- we follow the
TALMUD. It is our common law." (The Talmud;
Heart's Blood of the Jewish Faith, by
Herman Wouk, "which also ran serially in the New
York Herald Tribune, 11/17/59")
Regarding what is
actually in the Talmud, Rabbi Lewis Browne says in
Stranger Than Fiction:
"There are in it
myths and vagaries, idiotic superstitions and
unhappy thoughts, things that are not merely
irrational but sometimes even quite offensive.
But there is also much profound wisdom buried in
it, and much lofty and generous thinking. Not
all the rabbis were bitter and hateful --
though, Heaven knows, they all had reason to be.
And not all of them were small-minded and
bigoted.... Granted there is much chaff in the
work, there are also kernels of richest wheat."
kernels could take forever to find, by which time
many people would starve. Why look for seeds in mud
when you can go buy a bag of seeds? There are MANY
writings in the world much better than this neurotic
Rabbi Browne continues, regarding the
much-adored Zohar or Kabbala:
"...the real age of
the Cabala ...received its first impetus from a
book called the Zohar (the 'Splendor'),
late in the thirteenth century. This Zohar
contained a Cabalistic explanation of the Torah
that purported to reveal all the 'secret
meanings' underlying the peculiar phrases and
words of the holy text. A Spanish Jew named
Moses de Leon, who sponsored the book, claimed
it had been conceived and written by a
wonder-working rabbi eleven hundred years
earlier, and that the manuscript had lain hidden
away all the intervening years in a mysterious
cave. In all probability, however, he had
compiled himself from stolen material lifted by
him from Hindu, Persian, and Hebrew writings."
Thus, like the Bible,
the Zohar is a plagiarism of the mysteries of older
Regarding Israelite/Jewish Supremacy
For you are a people holy to the LORD your God; the
LORD your God has chosen you to be a people for his
own possession, out of all the peoples that are on
the face of the earth.
When you draw near to a
city to fight against it, offer terms of peace to
it. And if its answer to you is peace and it opens
to you, then all the people who are found in it
shall do forced labor for you and shall serve you.
But if it makes no peace with you, but makes war
against you, then you shall besiege it; and when the
LORD your God gives it into your hand you shall put
all its males to the sword, but the women and the
little ones, the cattle, and everything else in the
city, all its spoil, you shall take as booty for
yourselves; and you shall enjoy the spoil of your
enemies, which the LORD your God has given you. Thus
you shall do to all the cities which are very far
from you, which are not cities of the nations here.
But in the cities of these peoples that the LORD
your God gives you for an inheritance, you shall
save nothing that breathes ...
And in the days of those
kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which
shall never be destroyed, nor shall its sovereignty
be left to another people. It shall break into
pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end,
and it shall stand for ever ...
[The Israelites] warred
against Midian, as the LORD commanded Moses, and
slew every male.... And the people of Israel took
captive the women of Midian and their little ones;
and they took as booty all their cattle, their
flocks, and all their goods. All their cities in the
places where they dwelt, and all their encampments,
they burned with fire, and took all the spoil and
all the booty, both of man and of beast ...Moses
said to them, "Have you let all the women live?
...Now therefore, kill every male among the little
ones, and kill every woman who has known man by
lying with him. But all the young girls who have not
known man by lying with him, keep alive for

Comments for the Fifth Book
Jehovah himself in
heaven studies the Talmud, standing: he has such
respect for that book.
Johanan said: A heathen who studies the Torah
deserves death, for it is written, Moses commanded
us a law for an inheritance; it is our inheritance,
not theirs. Then why is this not included in the
Noachian laws? -- On the reading morasha [an
inheritance] he steals it; on the reading me'orasah
[betrothed], he is guilty as one who violates a
betrothed maiden, who is stoned.
An objection is
raised: R. Meir used to say. Whence do we know that
even a heathen who studies the Torah is as a High
Priest? From the verse, [Ye shall therefore keep my
statutes, and my judgments:] which, if man do, he
shall live in them. Priests, Levites, and Israelites
are not mentioned, but men: hence thou mayest learn
that even a heathen who studies the Torah is as a
High Priest! -- That refers to their own seven laws.

another, [the theft, etc.] must not be kept, and
likewise [the theft] of an Israelite by a Cuthean,
but that of a Cuthean by an Israelite may be
retained?" But if robbery is a capital offence,
should not the Tanna have taught: He incurs a
penalty? -- Because the second clause wishes to
state, "but that of a Cuthean by an Israelite may be
retained," therefore the former clause reads,
"[theft of an Israelite by a Cuthean] must not be
kept." But where a penalty is incurred, it is
explicitly stated, for the commencing clause
teaches: "For murder, whether of a Cuthean by a
Cuthean, or of an Israelite by a Cuthean, punishment
is incurred; but of a Cuthean by an Israelite, there
is no death penalty?"

right, for it is written: Upon the flesh of man

vessels are not man. Also with regard to the dead,
[it is plausible] that he is exempt, since after
death one is called corpse and not man. But why is

intercourse with a little girl it is nothing, for
when the girl is less than this [three years old],
it is as if one puts the finger into the eye; but
when a small boy has intercourse with a grown-up
woman he makes her as ‘a girl who is injured by a

[This debate concerns whether or
not someone is a virgin. Virginity is prized above
all, such that it is believed that a girl under the
age of three will regain her virginity, even if a
man has had intercourse with her. (Fn. 7 says, in
regard to putting "the finger into the eye": "I.e.,
tears come to the eye again and again, so does
virginity come back to the little girl under three
years.") Since virginity is prized above all, one
could assume that this conclusion has allowed grown
men to have sex with little girls with immunity. A
grown-up woman is not deflowered by having sex with

they said, men in paradise would have erections,

experts disputed the possibility of pederasty in

the most cruel and violent system of human life

invented, and it came to the world from those
populations once only living in the desert "dead
heart of Arabia", but now lording over gigantic
sums of oil-wealth, and spreading their vile
doctrines all around the world.

[The Koran is
one of] the most stubborn enemies of
Civilization, Liberty, and the Truth which
the world has yet known.
Some of the
parchment pages in the Yemeni hoard seemed to
date back to the seventh and eighth centuries
A.D., or Islam’s first two centuries – they were
fragments, in other words, of perhaps the oldest
Korans in existence. What’s more, some of these
fragments revealed small but intriguing
aberrations from the stand Koranic text.
though not surprising to textual historians, are
troublingly at odds with the orthodox Muslim
belief that the Koran as it has reached us today
is quite simply the perfect, timeless, and
unchanging Word of God.... What the Yemeni
Korans seems to suggest, Puin began to feel, was
an evolving text rather than simply the Word of
God as revealed in its entirety to the Prophet
Muhammad in the seventh century A.D.
So many Muslims have
this belief that everything between the two
covers of the Koran is just God’s unaltered
word. They like to quote the textual work that
shows the Bible has a history and did not fall
straight out of the sky, but until now the Koran
has been out of this discussion. The only way to
break through this wall is to prove that the
Koran has a history too. The Sana’a fragments
will help us do that.
The impact of the
Yemeni manuscripts is still to be felt. Their
variant readings and verse orders are all very
significant. Everybody agrees on that. These
manuscripts say that the early history of the
Koranic texts is much more of an open question
than many have suspected: the text was less
stable, and therefore had less authority, than
has always been claimed.
To historicize the
Koran would in effect delegitimize the whole
historical experience of the Muslim community.
The Koran is the charter for the community, the
document that called it into existence. And
ideally though obviously not always in reality
Islamic history has been the effort to pursue
and work out the commandments of the Koran in
human life. If the Koran is a historical
document, then the whole Islamic struggle of
fourteen centuries is effectively meaningless.

There is no hard
evidence for the existence of the Koran in any
form before the last decade of the seventh
My idea is that the
Koran is a kind of cocktail of texts that were
not all understood even at the time of Muhammad.
Many of them may even be a hundred years older
than Islam itself. Even within Islamic
traditions there is a huge body of contradictory
information, including a significant Christian
substrate; one can derive a whole Islamic
anti-history from them if one wants.
Crusades Islam was indistinguishable from
Judaism and... only then did it receive its
independent character, while Muhammad and the
first Caliphs are mythical figures.
...the history of
early-medieval Arabia is nearly all legend. Like
Buddha, Confucius, Jesus, and other founders of
patriarchal religions, Mohammed lacks real
verification. There is no reliable information
about his life or teachings. Most stories about
him are as apocryphal as the story that his
coffin hangs forever in mid-air "between heaven
and earth," like the bodies of ancient sacred
The only real source
of historical information about pre-Islamic
Mecca and the circumstances of the Koran's
revelation is the classical Islamic story about
the religions foundation...
The Koran claims for
itself that it is "mubeen," or clear.
But if you look at it, you will notice that
every fifth sentence or so simply doesn't make
sense. Many Muslims and Orientalists will tell
you otherwise, of course, but the fact is that a
fifth of the Koranic text is just
[The canonization of
the Koran involved the] attribution of several,
partially overlapping, collections of logia
[sayings] (exhibiting a distinctly Mosaic
imprint) to the image of a Biblical prophet
(modified by the material of the Muhammadan
evangelium into an Arabian man of God) with a
traditional message of salvation (modified by
the influence of Rabbinic Judaism into the
unmediated and finally immutable word of God).
Egyptian government minister, university
professor, and writer Taha Hussein... devoted
himself to the study of pre-Islamic Arabian
poetry and ended up concluding that much of that
body of work had been fabricated well after the
establishment of Islam in order to lend outside
support to Koranic mythology.... [T]he Iranian
journalist and diplomat Ali Dashti... repeatedly
took his fellow Muslims to task for not
questioning the traditional accounts of
Muhammad's life, much of which he called
myth-making and miracle-mongering.
...it is time [for
Islam] to assume, along with all of the great
cultural traditions, the modern risks of
For a long time
scholars have considered Islamic origins as
basically unproblematic. It seemed fairly
straightforward: the founder was a figure of
relatively recent history, amply documented, and
many of his own writings and sayings survived.
True, there had been a frenzy of fabrication,
but early Muslim scholars themselves had seen
this early on and moved to weed out spurious
hadith (traditions of the founder's sayings
and deeds). What was left seemed ample enough,
as did the text of the Koran, the revelation of
Allah to Muhammad.
Even if one could
not confess with Muslims a belief in the divine
inspiration (actually, dictation) of the Koran,
one still agreed the text preserved the
preachments of Muhammad. The most recent
generation of students of Islam, however, have
broken with this consensus. Gunter Luling is
joined by many in his opinion that Western
scholars of Islam and the Koran had simply
accepted the official party line of Muslim
jurists and theologians regarding the sources
for Muhammad and early Islamic history.... In
fact, Western Islamicists had done everything
but accept the Koran as the revealed Word of
God. In retrospect one wonders why they balked
at this last step!...
The Koran was
assembled from a variety of prior Hagarene texts
(hence the contradictions re Jesus'
death) in order to provide the Moses-like
Muhammad with a Torah of his own....
[T]his means that
all we thought we knew of the Prophet Muhammad
is really a mass of fictive legal precedents
meant to anchor this or that Islamic practice
once Muhammad had been recast as an Arab Moses.
And the question of the origin of the Koran is
no longer "from Allah?" or "from Muhammad?" but
rather "from Muhammad?" or "from countless
unnamed Hagarene jurists?"... And it becomes
equally evident that the line between the Koran
and the hadith must be erased, for both alike
are now seen to be repositories of sayings
fictively attributed to the Prophet and
transmitted by word of mouth before being
codified in canonical written form.
