The Dirt on Muhammed
It turns out that Muhammed himself was actually a pretty decent guy. Yesterday, the Anchoress posted a conversation she had with Ali -- a "reformist" Muslim. She started the conversation after she became curious about this question: "Is this something Muslims are also taught to do? Is there a "turn the other cheek" component to Islam?"
The following discussion is very interesting and informative in light of what Mohammed's more ... energetic ... followers are doing.
