    Poor translation

    It's true that "you get what you pay for." This is truly a 99 cent translation. I made it through the first three pages before the grammar drove me nuts. I'm going to try the $10 version.

    Example: "Proper Arabia is by the oriental writers generally divided into five provinces...", "it has been already observed that two kindoms were founded by those who left their ocountry."

    Muslims must hate this

    In the first place, the book itself wasn't written by mohammed. I'm going to try to find out from B and N who actually wrote the book. If you want to find out what a total jumble of diverse parts of different religions were cooked-up by this maniac for the religion of islam, read the book. It seems a large part of islam came from Judaism and christianity as well as other pagan religions. It uses festivals and other Arab holidays for islamic holidays like Ramadan as the christians used the winter solstice for christmas. Once you get into the Koran itself, it is very hard to follow as it repeats itself and wanders. This could be from the translator or the way the book was digitized. I'm going to see about getting another version from a known writer and comparing them. But after reading the first part of the book, I can see where anyone that bad-mouths islam or mohammed needs to die, tragically. I think they know that their religion is not a religion. Just because they don't allow idol worship doesn't make them different.
