The new buzz on antibiotics

The surface of flies is the last place you would expect to find
antibiotics, yet that is exactly where a team of Australian
researchers is concentrating their efforts.

Working on the theory that flies must have remarkable antimicrobial
defences to survive rotting dung, meat and fruit, the team at the
Department of Biological Sciences, Macquarie University, set out to
identify those antibacterial properties manifesting at different
stages of a flyís development.

"Our research is a small part of a global research effort for new
antibiotics, but we are looking where we believe no-one has looked
before,Ē said Ms Joanne Clarke, who presented the groupís findings at
the Australian Society for Microbiology Conference in Melbourne this
week. The project is part of her PhD thesis.

The scientists tested four different species of fly: a house fly, a
sheep blowfly, a vinegar fruit fly and the control, a Queensland fruit
fly which lays its eggs in fresh fruit. These larvae do not need as
much antibacterial compound because they do not come into contact with
as much bacteria.

Flies go through the life stages of larvae and pupae before becoming
adults. In the pupae stage, the fly is encased in a protective casing
and does not feed. "We predicted they would not produce many
antibiotics," said Ms Clarke.

They did not. However the larvae all showed antibacterial properties
(except that of the Queensland fruit fly control).

As did all the adult fly species, including the Queensland fruit fly
(which at this point requires antibacterial protection because it has
contact with other flies and is mobile).

Such properties were present on the fly surface in all four species,
although antibacterial properties occur in the gut as well. "You find
activity in both places," said Ms Clarke.

"The reason we concentrated on the surface is because it is a simpler
extraction.Ē

The antibiotic material is extracted by drowning the flies in ethanol,
then running the mixture through a filter to obtain the crude
extract.

When this was placed in a solution with various bacteria including
E.coli, Golden Staph, Candida (a yeast) and a common hospital
pathogen, antibiotic action was observed every time.

"We are now trying to identify the specific antibacterial compounds,"
said Ms Clarke. Ultimately these will be chemically synthesised.

Because the compounds are not from bacteria, any genes conferring
resistance to them may not be as easily transferred into pathogens. It
is hoped this new form of antibiotics will have a longer effective
therapeutic life.

Nowww I understand why it is said in islam that the people of the world will be fooled into believing that the Antichrist is their true saviour and messiah...it all makes sense when there are so many blind people!!

What more do you people want than scientific proof?! Big bang, universe expanding, embryonic formation, Iron sent down from meteorites, invisible water barriers between fresh(river) and salt(sea)water, DETAILED water cycle showing the importance of wind as the starting point of rain formation, all these being only discovered less than a 100 years ago and these are just a few!

Do you even know that the Quran mentions Prophet Jesus' name more times than Prophet Mohammad? And that God tells Mary: "O Mary! Allah has chosen you and purified you and again he has chosen you above all women of all nations of the worlds"(Quran 3:42). I think you can notice how imporant Prophet Jesus is to muslims(submitters to the one true God only).

What is even more funny is that the Bible that you Christians follow and are defending on this forum as the true word of God has been proved to not even be the true copy/translation and contains thousands of discrepancies from the oldest Greek historic versions, the Codex Sinaiticus and Codex Vaticanus, which do not include the resurrection of Jesus for example.

Another example, in our modern Bibles, Mark 1:1 reads "The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;" however, in this most ancient of all Christian manuscripts the Codex Sinaiticus, this verse only reads "The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ". Now isn't that interesting??
Im not going to list all the discrepancies here obviously but for those who have a little bit of open mind, I suggest you do the research yourselves.

Whilst the Quran books of today have only one true copy that is the same everywhere, even matching word for word the oldest Quran in the world (in Uzbek) that dates back to the year 651 only 19 years after the death of the Prophet.

I dont think there is anything more to be said honestly, after all, God says "God hath set a seal on their hearts and on their hearing, and on their eyes is a veil; great is the penalty they (incur)." Verse 2:7. I guess no matter how much convincing one does, there are gona be those who will always stay blind.

How much can you honestly lose if you read a copy of the Quran in english and then judge for yourself? I mean, you dont think the word of God is worth even that much?

Islam does not promote the terrorism If was some of the bombings Muslims behind them that never This never does not mean that Islam promote terrorism .. You do not find a verse in the Quran or (hadeeth )of the Messenger peace be upon him promote to terrorism

If the explosions occur The name of Islam .. you find the explosions occur The name of Christianity too .....Although that message of Christ ( jesus) peace be upon him was the peace and love ....

Christians distorted the message of Jesus Christ peace be upon him after

Claimed that ( jesus) be Lord ... Claimed that ( jesus) the Son of God

You know who was behind the Oklahoma City bombing

Does that mean that Christ accepts violence ?Certainly NOT

also In the verse quoted Islam does not urge the woman beat never

but means that last solution with Straw as symbol

Was Muhammad A Terrorist?
WHAT ARE THE HISTORICAL FACTS?
LISTEN! ACTIONS ARE SPEAKING LOUDER THAN WORDS!
Muhammad's religious career spanned 23 years. He started as an oppressed preacher and ended up as a powerful ruler. During this time he was many things, played many roles, displayed many emotions, and performed many deeds, both good and bad.
But did he act as a terrorist? That is our focus and we have to review the historical record and examine its facts. I will cite incidents directly from the historical records mentioned above and present my case. I'll summarize 5 incidents for examination and I'll provide their specific references. There are more to choose from but these five should be sufficient.
1) Attacks on the caravans.
Muhammad began to commit and authorize acts of violence against non-Muslims after he arrived in Medina. This was in his 13th year as a religious preacher. Prior to this, while in Mecca, he and his followers were quite weak and unable to commit acts of violence. Had they attempted violence the Meccans would have killed Muhammad outright and possibly killed all of Muhammadís followers.
Eventually the persecution became severe and Muhammad fled Mecca running for his life. After arriving in Medina he sent his men out to rob trading caravans. (At this time his Meccan enemies decided to leave him alone. Their perspective was that their problem had run away and they were done with him - good riddance! Tabariís History states that it was Muhammadís attacks on their caravans that started the war between Muhammad and the Meccans). As these raids continued caravan attendants were murdered by the Muslim thieves and Muhammad's attacks transgressed the cultural norms and Arab moresí of warfare. To justify his crimes Muhammad claimed to have received a special message, a "revelation", from Allah. You can read about this in Tabari Vol. 7 pp10-22 and LoM pp281-289.
Put this in perspective. Muhammad's attacks against these caravans are akin to highwaymen's robberies. They hold up trucks carrying goods and in some cases murder the drivers. But unlike normal criminals, Muhammad claimed to get a special message from God allowing his actions.
Is this a moral standard to be followed?

2) Murder of an old man.

Muhammad was not received by all the inhabitants of Medina. Many people rejected his claim of prophethood. Some of these people were concerned for their fellow citizens and spoke out about the false prophet who had duped them. One of these was a 120-year-old man named Abu Afak. Abu Afak did nothing more then speak his heart and mind and chide those that followed Muhammad. He viewed Muhammad like people today view leaders of religious cults and encouraged his fellow citizens to doubt. Muhammad could not tolerate any criticism of his claim to prophethood and he asked his followers to murder Abu Afak. Abu Afak was murdered, under cover of night, while he slept. A Muslim plunged a sword through the old manís chest. You can read more details about this murder here: http://answering-islam.org/Silas/abu-afak.htm
There is little difference between what Muhammad did to Abu Afak and what Saddam Hussein has done to his critics. Of course at that time Muhammad did not rule the country, so like an illegitimate criminal he acted furtively, and the end result was the same. In Medina if you challenged Muhammad's credibility you would most likely be murdered for it. You can read about this in LoM p675, and Tabaqat Vol 2 p32.

3) Murder of a mother of five children.

One lady, Asma bint Marwan, spoke out about Muhammadís cold-blooded murder. She chided her tribesmen for allowing him to get away with it. Again Muhammad faced criticism. Again he could not brook it. Again he asked his followers to murder. Again a Muslim man, under cover of night, snuck up to the victimís home and stabbed her to death. Her children slept nearby. You can read more details about this murder here: http://answering-islam.org/Silas/asma.htm
Do you believe that Muhammad was so threatened by this woman that he had to murder her?

4) Murder of a shopkeeper.

Muhammad was not able to get along with non-Muslims very well. His relationship with the Jewish tribes deteriorated quickly. Muhammad was very unhappy that the Jews rejected his claim of prophethood and he wanted to silence their criticisms. An incident follows:
"The apostle said, "Kill any Jew that falls into your power." Thereupon Muhayyisa b. Masud leapt upon Ibn Sunayna, a Jewish merchant with whom they had social and business relations, and killed him. Huwayyisa was not a Muslim at the time though he was the elder brother. When Muhayyisa killed him Huwayyisa began to beat him, saying, 'You enemy of God, did you kill him when much of the fat on your belly comes from his wealth?' Muhayyisa answered, 'Had the one who ordered me to kill him ordered me to kill you I would have cut your head off.'" (LoM page 369).
This story is also detailed in the Hadith collection of the Sunan of Abu Dawud, Book 19, Number 2996:
Narrated Muhayyisah: The Apostle of Allah said: If you gain a victory over the men of Jews, kill them. So Muhayyisah jumped over Shubaybah, a man of the Jewish merchants. He had close relations with them. He then killed him. At that time Huwayyisah (brother of Muhayyisah) had not embraced Islam. He was older than Muhayyisah. When he killed him, Huwayyisah beat him and said: O enemy of Allah, I swear by Allah, you have a good deal of fat in your belly from his property.
(The Sunan of Abu Dawud is a collection of "traditions" or anecdotes, mostly about Muhammadís specific actions or teachings).
Muhammadís command was bigoted, "Kill any Jew that falls into your power". Muhammad was not looking to mete out justice, instead he was looking to murder and terrorize those that rejected his prophethood. This is akin to the fundamentalist Muslims today who say, "Kill any American, or Britain, or Jew, ..." whoever is their enemy of the day. The Muslim terrorists of today are doing what Muhammad did earlier.
Is this low standard worth emulating? Hasnít humanity done better?

4) Torture and murder of a man to obtain wealth.
Earlier I quoted Sina and his reference to Muhammadís conquest of Kheibar. Here is one sordid detail from this conquest:
"Kinana al-Rabi, who had the custody of the treasure of Banu Nadir, was brought to the apostle who asked him about it. He denied that he knew where it was. A Jew came (Tabari says "was brought"), to the apostle and said that he had seen Kinana going round a certain ruin every morning early. When the apostle said to Kinana, "Do you know that if we find you have it I shall kill you?" He said "Yes". The apostle gave orders that the ruin was to be excavated and some of the treasure was found. When he asked him about the rest he refused to produce it, so the apostle gave orders to al-Zubayr Al-Awwam, "Torture him until you extract what he has." So he kindled a fire with flint and steel on his chest until he was nearly dead. Then the apostle delivered him to Muhammad b. Maslama and he struck off his head, in revenge for his brother Mahmud." (LoM page 515).
Letís review. Muhammad attacked and conquered Kheibar. It was rumored that there was buried wealth or treasure. Muhammad had one of the Jewish leaders, Kinana, brought to him and demanded the wealth. Kinana said he didnít know of it. But Muhammadís greed drove him and he ordered that Kinana be tortured. They built a fire on his chest hoping to cause him enough pain and suffering to make him talk. But Kinana never told them about any buried wealth. In the end Muhammad ordered that he be beheaded.
Is this a great example for humanity to trust in and follow?
You can read more in-depth about this event here: http://answering-islam.org/Silas/kinana.htm

CONCLUSION
Was Muhammad a terrorist? Of course he was. Youíve seen the information quoted exclusively from Islamic source materials. And there are many more crimes committed by Muhammad that could be detailed. To keep this article brief I only listed five. Yes Muhammad was a terrorist, and yes, terrorism is allowed in Islam. And yes, Fundamentalist Muslims are in a state of war with all those who reject Islam and terrorism is a legitimate weapon for their use.
If you want to do more in-depth study of violence and "jihad" in Islam, how it developed and changed over time, you can read this long, detailed article: http://answering-islam.org/Silas/jihad.htm
THE IMPORTANT QUESTION
What effect does this terrorist component of Islam have on Islam today? Many Muslims today are seeking to spread Islam as Muhammad spread it: by force. Aggressive violence is sanctioned by the Quran, Hadith, and Muhammadís actions. The terrorist Muslims today are following in Muhammadís footsteps.
You are aware of what the Muslim terrorist groups have done and are continuing to do throughout the world. Since this violent aspect is ingrained in Islamís theology it means that the nice-guy Muslim you know today has all the religious groundwork to become another Osama bin Laden, John Walker Lindh, or John Muhammad, tomorrow. (Note the race of these Muslims: Arab, Caucasian, and Negro. Islamic terrorism comes in all races and sexes).
A FASCINATING QUESTION
Why did Muhammad brutalize so many that rejected him? As Iíve studied his life Iíve come to believe the reason is related to the deep mental scarring he received during his first visits from the so-called, "angel", Gabriel. This was a spirit that terrorized him in a cave and gave him his first "revelation". This experience hurt Muhammad so deeply that he attempted suicide many times over the course of the next couple of years. I think Muhammad raged against those that rejected his claim to prophethood because that rejection pointed toward what he feared originally: he was demon possessed or influenced, or that he had gone mad. Mentally he could not deal with it, and as a result, those that touched this aspect of his psyche put themselves dead center in his sights. In his mind, he was either the prophet of God or a demon possessed man. Only one possibility allowed for his continued sanity, and safety from another suicide attempt.
You can read more about Muhammadís suicide attempts here:

http://answering-islam.org/Silas/fatrah.htm
CHALLENGE TO THE MUSLIM
Is this the example you want to follow and trust for your entrance to heaven? Not me! God has given mankind a much better example in Jesus. In fact, there have been many men who were far more moral, far more kind, far more forgiving, and far greater examples to emulate than Muhammad. Surely God could have done better than to pick this Muhammad as an example to follow.

No doubt when you take the biography of Muhammad peace be upon him


from Sources that trying to distort the image of Muhammad peace be upon him


So the simplest thing who can any human being reach him

All what you said about Muhammad reveals that you really did not read about him

I will tell you non-Muslims they read biography of Mohammed from pure sources ....If Mohammad as you said why did not write this


They have studied the biography of Muhammad peace be upon him carefully ...


And went out with this evidence


Many Western scholars and famous personalities have admitted that no faults or flaws are to be found in the character and behavior of the Prophet (PBUH). Some of their observations are remarkable.
Lamartine, the celebrated historian says: "If greatness of purpose, smallness of means and astounding results are the three criteria of human genius, who could dare to compare any great man in modern history with Muhammad? The most famous men created arms, laws and empires only. They founded, if anything at all, no more than material powers which often crumbled away before their eyes.
"This man moved not only armies, legislations, empires, peoples and dynasties, but millions of men in one-third of the then inhabited world; and more than that, he moved the altars, the gods, the religions, the ideas, the beliefs and souls... his forbearance in victory, his ambition, which was entirely devoted to one idea and in no manner striving for an empire; his endless prayers, his mystic conversations with God, his death and his triumph over death; all these attest not to an imposture but to a firm conviction which gave him the power to restore a dogma.
"This dogma was twofold, the unity of God and the immateriality of God; the former telling what God is, the latter telling what God is not; the one overthrowing false gods with the sword, the other starting an idea with the words.
"Philosopher, orator, apostle, legislator, warrior, conqueror of ideas, restorer of rational dogmas, of a cult without images, the founder of twenty terrestrial empires and of one spiritual empire, that is Muhammad. As regards all the standards by which human greatness may be measured, we may ask, is there any man greater than he?" (Lamartine, Histoire de la Turquie, Paris, 1854, Vol. II, pp. 276-277)
The Hindu leader Mahatma Gandhi wrote about the Prophet (PBUH): "I become more than ever convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for Islam in those days. It was the rigid simplicity, the utter self-effacement of the Prophet, the scrupulous regard for pledges, his intense devotion to his friends and followers and his intrepidity, his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and in his own mission. These and not the sword carried everything before them and surmounted every obstacle."
George Bernard Shaw wrote: "He must be called the Savior of Humanity. I believe that if a man like him were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world, he would succeed in solving the problems in a way that would bring the much needed peace and happiness. Europe is beginning to be enamoured of the creed of Muhammad. In the next century it may go further in recognizing the utility of that creed in solving its problems." (The Genuine Islam, Singapore, Vol. I, No 8, 1936)
Michael H. Hart says: "My choice of Muhammad to lead the list of the world's most influential persons may surprise some readers and may be questioned by others, but he was the only man in history who was supremely successful on both the religious and secular levels." (M.H. Hart, 'The 100: A Ranking of the most influential persons in history', new York, 1978, p. 33)

Default Who is Muhammad (Peace be upon him)

Before judging a person be neutral and:
Listen to this person, and follow his doings.
2-Compare his ideas and teachings with what is acceptable to the mind and heart
3-If you think that his thoughts are right, compare them with his doings; is he applying his teachings?
4-If he is applying his teachings and sayings, so he is for sure right and one must believe him At the end you will get a clear answer for all confusing questions and you will know for sure

Muhammad was an athiest who thought all religions were nothing but a tool for evil.
