“Stockholm syndrome” occurs when hostages form an emotional or psychological bond with their captors. But there’s a new kind of Stockholm syndrome that occurs when victims of terror defend the ideology that promotes terrorist attacks.
David Wood: “In an effort to prevent ongoing argument and hostility, I decided to extend an olive branch to Islam by sharing my favorite verse of the Quran.”
According to Islam’s most trusted sources, Muhammad repeatedly tried to kill himself. Indeed, he tried to kill himself so many times that we can fairly call him “the Suicidal Messenger.”
In this video, David Wood examines passages on Muhammad’s suicide attempts in the History of al-Tabari, Ibn Ishaq, and Sahih al-Bukhari, showing that the real purpose of Islam was to keep Muhammad from killing himself.
David Wood: “An odd but common Muslim argument insists that Jesus prayed like a Muslim, so Christians should pray like Muslims. In this video, I respond by taking a closer look at the prayers of Jesus.”
Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.” Matthew 26:39 (NIV)
Muslims often claim that Islam is the religion of pure submission to Allah. However, in their daily prayers, Muslims say, “As-salamu alaika ay-yuhan nabiy-yu,” which means, “Peace be upon YOU, O Prophet.” Since Muslims are directly addressing Muhammad during their daily prayers, they’re assuming that Muhammad can hear them. This requires the divine attribute of omnipresence on Muhammad’s part.
Because Muslims speak directly to Muhammad during their daily prayers, they can no longer claim that Islam is the religion of pure submission to Allah. Islam is polytheistic, and any Muslim who prays the way Muhammad commanded is guilty of shirk (associating partners with Allah).

David Wood: According to Islam’s most trusted sources, Muhammad would have sex with nine women and girls in a single day, and then brag about it to his fellow Muslims. The only conclusion to draw is that Muhammad was a sex addict.
For centuries, dogs have been described as “man’s best friend.” Not surprisingly, the prophet who commanded his followers to slaughter men also commanded them to slaughter man’s best friend. And it all began when Muhammad got stood up for a date, because of a puppy.
David Wood: Jihadis demand attention. I’ve finally decided to give them the attention they demand.
The recent wave of anti-Muslim attacks should cause us to ask what we can do to protect Muslims from anti-Muslim bigotry and violence. In this video, David Wood explains how we can protect Muslims from anti-Muslim intolerance.
Speaking at an Orlando shooting vigil in Salt Lake City, Utah Lieutenant Governor Spencer Cox stated:
Ultimately, there is only one way for us to come together. It must happen at a personal level. We must learn to truly love one another. The Prophet Muhammad is reported to have said: “You will not enter paradise until you believe, and you will not believe until you love one another.” Jesus said, “Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you and persecute you.”
David Wood: “While it may be comforting, following a tragedy, to think that Muhammad commanded people to love one another, is this what Muhammad actually meant? Let’s take a closer look. ”
Ramadan 2016 Alert:
Early in the morning on June 12th, 2016, American Muslim Omar Mir Seddique Mateen opened fire at “The Pulse,” a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. Mateen killed around 50 people and injured dozens more while shouting “Allahu Akbar!” Before the attack, he called 911 to declare his allegiance to ISIS. Did this shooting have something to do with Islam, the Quran, ISIS, Jihad, and Muhammad?
David Wood discusses the evidence and confronting Islam with something it can’t hope to overcome.
David Wood: “Paradoxically, Muslims tend to eat far more when they’re fasting than when they’re not fasting. You see, Ramadan isn’t simply not eating. It’s gorging yourself before sunrise, taking a break while the sun’s out and gorging yourself again at sundown; a diet recommended by no doctor, ever.”
Ramadan 2016 has started, so this is a great time to learn about Islam’s holiest month.
