This essay is perhaps one of the most vile, misleading historical essays that I have had the misfortune to read in a while. Hats off to for taking it apart.

Yes. Indeed.. those were exactly my sentiments...the most glaring false facts were related to zoarastanism and manichean being pagan Religons when they are clearly monotheistic.

Replying to @shahanSean
As you can imagine, Sean, I could have easily pointed out another ten mistakes. But what’s most regrettable is that the author thinks western audience could actually buy into this propaganda - I suppose some would, while others need to.

I am afraid there is a segment of the western population which in the current political climate may very well buy into this narrative. Your erudite refutations are appreciated.

One wonders seriously who at Al-Arabiya oversees these things. They need help.

This article must be taken seriously, because as Sheikh Maurice Halbwachs said, we are in the presence of a reconstruction of the past in the light of the concerns of the present. this tells us about contemporary Saudi geopolitics.

As is the case for the Sira, this one tells us more about the authors of the 8th - 9th centuries than on the historical reality of the beginnings of Islam

Extraordinary and disappointing that Mr Hussein could write such utterly dated, inaccurate, borderline bigoted, nonsense.

Each side has its agenda. I think part of the problem is that people forget that Arabs willingly didn't want to consider any history for them beside Islam. Islam for them is the heavenly civilization,so to speak.& of course Islam by itself is a welcoming environment for non Arabs

However, this generous attitude by Arabs and the nature of the message (Islam) they had delivered seemingly has led some non Arab groups to think that they can produce an "Islam" that excludes the Arabic paradigm that Islam was born with. Here's the problem! Ibn Ḥazm👇
