The above is quoted from an article by Eric Allen Bell, a liberal filmmaker who changed his mind about Islam (read his story here and here). He wrote a great article (read it here) describing what would happen if Muhammad were alive today. He goes into great detail, and I think he is accurate.
Here are a few excerpts:
"If he were alive today," wrote Bell, "Amnesty International would certainly have a problem with his followers obeying his laws, which demand that certain people have their limbs amputated and their nose cut off.
The Huffington Post and Daily Kos would be collecting signatures, to demand that our government do something to stop him. Media Matters would be reprinting all of the outrageous things he said, such as "I have become victorious through terror."
Michael Moore would probably follow the Prophet around, trying to trick him into a "gotcha" question, then win an Academy Award for his latest documentary, "Muhammad and Me."
CNN’s Anderson Cooper would profile the Prophet Muhammad in his “Keeping Them Honest” segment of his highly rated show, because of all the contradictions in Muhammad’s best seller, the Holy Quran (look up “Abrogation”).
The ADL would have an issue with the Prophet Muhammad stating that Jews are all apes and pigs (see Suras 2:65, 5:60, and 7:166), rather than trying to protect the rights of Islam’s female followers to wear black sheets over their bodies, as the Prophet’s laws command. If someone were alive today, calling Jews apes and pigs, while having 1.6 billion followers, the ADL would have something to say about it.
The Daily Show would have more fun mocking the Prophet than taking pot shots at Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck. Bill Maher and Sean Hannity would ironically be sharing a Nobel Peace Prize for their brave and pioneering work, in exposing the war crimes of the Prophet Muhammad.
Gay rights groups would be a little concerned about the Mormon Church, but totally freaked out about anyone who follows the laws of the Prophet, known as the Sharia, because Sharia Law calls for homosexuals to be severely punished. Every cult awareness website and organization out there would put out an alert, since the penalty for leaving the Prophet’s religion is death.
After the Prophet Muhammad beheaded an entire tribe of Jews, possibly no one would have a problem with waterboarding anyone who knew where to find him. The Prophet Muhammad had several wives, but the one named Safiyya became his wife after he tortured and killed her father, her brothers, the men in her tribe, told his fighters to take the women of that tribe as sex slaves and then raped Safia that night.
It goes on in this vein, but you get the idea. This is obviously a great article to share with your friends and family, but since Bell takes his fellow liberals to task for ignoring this issue, and since his credentials are at the end of the article, I think most liberals would assume the author is a right wing fanatic before they read the first two paragraphs and would stop reading. So if you share the article with your liberal friends, make it clear beforehand that the article is written by a liberal.
You might start with the description you find at the end of the article:
Eric Allen Bell is a writer, filmmaker and Media Adviser living in Los Angeles, California. While making a documentary about the construction of a 53,000 square foot mega mosque in Murfreesboro, Tennessee he attempted to expose “Islamophobia.” Once he stated that Islam was the biggest threat to human rights in the world today, he was banned from the writing for Daily Kos and MichaelMoore.com, after LoonWatch.com created a petition to silence him. His article, “The High Price of Telling the Truth About Islam” has been widely circulated and has caused several liberals to rethink how they look at the religion of peace.
