    See post 46 guess you missed it.

    The World will NEVER EVER EVER achieve Peace with so many Muslims in the world, NEVER EVER! When they follow the Koran and example of (never a man of peace but a warrior leading armies and persecuting people who did not follow him).  

    1stly, emotional much?

    and 2ndly, I might just have to take a leaf out of your book and start repeating things which I said on other threads:

    Here are some people who would think you are talking utter nonesense:

    The lies (Western slander) which well-meaning zeal has heaped round this man (Muhammad) are disgraceful to ourselves only."
    — Thomas Carlyle (On Heroes and Hero Worship and the Heroic in History)

    "I have studied him (Muhammad PBUH) - the wonderful man and in my opinion far from being an anti-Christ, he must be called the Savior of Humanity. I believe that if a man like him were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world, he would succeed in solving its problems in a way that would bring it much needed peace and happiness."
    — George Bernard Shaw (The Genuine Islam)

    "Muhammad has always been standing higher than the Christianity. He does not consider god as a human being and never makes himself equal to God. Muslims worship nothing except God and Muhammad is his Messenger. There is no any mystery and secret in it"
    — Leo Tolstoy (The Prophet Muhammed's Words and Behaviour)

    "His readiness to undergo persecutions for his beliefs, the high moral character of the men who believed in him and looked up to him as leader, and the greatness of his ultimate achievement - all argue his fundamental integrity. To suppose Muhammad an impostor raises more problems than it solves. Moreover, none of the great figures of history is so poorly appreciated in the West as Muhammad"
    — William Montgomery Watt (Muhammad at Mecca)

    "I wanted to know the best of one who holds today undisputed sway over the hearts of millions of mankind....I became more than convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for Islam in those days in the scheme of life. It was the rigid simplicity, the utter self-effacement of the Prophet, the scrupulous regard for his pledges, his intense devotion to his friends and followers, his intrepidness, his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and in his own mission. These and not the sword carried everything before them and surmounted every obstacle."
    — Mahatma Gandhi
