Interview: How Muhammad’s “sacred” actions beget blasphemy killings, Islamic Jew-hatred, and jihadist atrocities

Janet Mefferd and I discussed my and PJ Media essays on how the prototype, “sacralized” behaviors of Islam’s prophet Muhammad—embedded into the Sharia, Islam’s all-encompassing religio-political “law”—were manifest on the streets of Copenhagen, and the beaches of Libya.

The scenes of murder and mayhem—“blasphemy” killing, targeted, lethal anti-Semitic violence, and even the grisly beheading of 21 Coptic Christian laborer captives on a Libyan beach by ISIS jihadists—were all consistent with the ideology and practice of Islam’s prophet and eternal exemplar, Muhammad.
