Elder George A. Smith on Muhammad

In light of the recent tragedy in Paris, I found these words of Elder George A. Smith, delivered in 1855, to be very important.

Mahomet continued preaching; there was nothing in his religion to license iniquity or corruption; he preached the moral doctrines which the Savior taught; viz., to do as they would be done by; and not to do violence to any man, nor to render evil for evil; and to worship one God. (“The History of Mahomedanism,” Journal of Discourses 3:31.)

Elder Smith, a non-Muslim, evidently understood something crucial about Islam that the men who attacked Charlie Hebdo, ostensibly devout followers of Muhammad, don’t.

  1. It would be interesting to see the sources Elder G.A. Smith used for his assessment. Are you familiar with Robert Spencer? He works with David Horowitz (see frontpagemag.com). Robert has his own website called Jihadwatch.org. I have read his posts for many years and agree that the Koran is filled with very disturbing and "ungodly" elements. It is of serious concern to me that I do relay frequent posts on my FaceBook account seriously questioning the intents of what I call "Islamo-Fascist" and how the LEFT carries on a strange alliance with many elements of Jihadists.
