Yes. Mohammed was undoubtedly a pedophile.
One of the most disturbing things about Islam is that it does not categorically condemn pedophilia. Indeed, it cannot, for to do so would draw attention to the pedophilia of Mohammed, the founder of Islam. Mormonism has the same problem with its founder, Joseph Smith. Mormons cannot categorically condemn pedophilia either without denouncing Smith as a false prophet. Smith took 30 wives, one a 14-year-old. He planned unsuccessfully to marry a 12-year-old. Mohammed had planned to marry a baby, but died as a result of an attempted poisoning before he could do so. The two men were false prophets, they created their own alleged revelations and they were pedophiles. History does repeat itself.
Pedophilia is the sexual exploitation of children. The Encyclopedia of Mental Disorders says that pedophilia is “an abnormal interest in children…a disorder that is characterized by recurrent intense sexual urges and sexually arousing fantasies generally involving…children, or other nonconsenting persons. Pedophilia is also a psychosexual disorder in which the fantasy or actual act of engaging in sexual activity with prepubertal children is the preferred or exclusive means of achieving sexual excitement and gratification…Pedophilia is defined by mental health professionals as a mental disorder, but the American legal system defines acting on a pedophilic urge as a criminal act.”
Please note the words: “the preferred…means of achieving sexual excitement and gratification.” From the age of 54 until 64, Mohammed preferred the very young Aisha to the rest of his large harem and sex slaves. He had fantasies about Aisha before asking for her hand. He passed these fantasies off as “revelations” from the Supreme Being.
The Encyclopedia of Mental Disorders: “Some researchers attribute pedophilia to arrested emotional development; that is, the pedophile is attracted to children because he or she has never matured psychologically. Some regard pedophilia as the result of a distorted need to dominate a sexual partner. Since children are smaller and usually weaker than adults, they may be regarded as non-threatening potential partners. This drive for domination is sometimes thought to explain why most pedophiles are males.”
Mohammed’s emphasis on controlling or dominating others and his use of savage, irresistible force to make them “submit” to his will is consistent with the narcissistic urges of a pedophile who enjoys the domination and submission of a small, vulnerable person.
James Hord, a psychologist in Panama City, Florida, who specializes in treating sexually abused children, agrees that pedophiles “need to feel they have power and control in a relationship, which is easy with children.” (more…)
