The Muhammad Code
How A Desert Prophet Brought You ISIS, Al Qaeda, and Boko Haram or How Muhammad Invented JihadBook - 2016
Over a thousand years ago, Islam toppled superpowers Rome and Persia, then took over two-thirds of the inhabited world. Militant Muslims believe that Islam is on the brink of doing it again. The Muhammad Code lays bare the origins of this belief. Many excuse Islamic violence as a legitimate reaction to Western imperialism. They blame wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the establishment of Israel. But Jihad was invented in 624 AD by the only prophet ever to call himself 'The Prophet of War'. And that prophet was not responding to legitimate grievances, but an ambition for world conquest.
