Much gratitude to Apostate Prophet for expressing exactly what I thought when I heard Peterson’s fairy tale of a speech to Muslims. Even the Muslims were not impressed with his speech.

The internet is full of list of facts about Muhammad. Most of them are pro-Islamic, however. This one is not. Here are 10 facts everyone should know about Muhammad.
