>From memory: Mohamet new that he is one with God, but couldn't proclaim it.
According to my sources, he was an Avatar, like Abraham, a descent of divine
being in order to help humanity. Presumably, because the Hebrew received
this grace couple of times (Jesus was an Avatar as well), the Arabs received
it also. Mohamet used the tool of war in order to turn the murderous
inclinations of the Arab tribes into a holy arena, it had to be disbanded
alltogether when a new state of consciousness would rise, which it didn't,
not on a grand scale. It is like education - you turn the violent
tendencies of the patient along creative lines, so in due course it will
vanish. The Moslems were usually more noble in their wars then the
Christians. Usually they kept their word, released prisoners, and didn't
force the masses to accept Islam. Not so in Iran, Kashmir and India, where
mass murder, looting, raping etc was rife. The Jihad meant to be a holy war
against the lower self, never a war against another external person. The
event of the Cricifiction should never be known to man - Jesus decided to
keep the Spiritual Path open - while humans did everything to shut it off.
He had two ways of doing it - one to establish a coordinated spiritual
circle, since it failed, His last resort was to get himself crucified, thus
He kept the gate open, but the world sentenced itself to walk on the path of
bloody suffering. Etzion

> There has never been a religion in the annals of the world with such a
bloody record as Christianity. All the rest, including the traditional
fierce fights of the "chosen people" with their next of kin, the idolatrous
tribes of Israel, pale before the murderous fanaticism of the alleged
followers of Christ! Even the rapid spread of Mahometanism before the
conquering sword of the Islam prophet, is a direct consequence of the bloody
riots and fights among Christians. It was the intestine war between the
Nestorians and Cyrilians that engendered Islamism; and it is in the convent
of Bozrah that the prolific seed was first sown by Bahira, the Nestorian
monk. Freely watered by rivers of blood, the tree of Mecca has grown till we
find it in the present century overshadowing nearly two hundred millions of
people. [[Vol. 2, Page]] 54 ISIS UNVEILED. HPB.
> Mahomet appeared nearly six hundred years after the presumed deicide.
The Graeco-Roman world was still convulsed with religious dissensions,
withstanding all the past imperial edicts and forcible Christianization.
While the Council of Trent was disputing about the Vulgate, the unity of God
quietly superseded the trinity, and soon the Mahometans outnumbered the
Christians. Why? Because their prophet never sought to identify himself with
Allah. Otherwise, it is safe to say, he would not have lived to see his
religion flourish. Till the present day Mahometanism has made and is now
making more proselytes than Christianity.Mahomet was born in 571 A. D. ISIS

> For the teachings of Christ were occult teachings, which could only be
explained at the initiation. They were never intended for the masses, for
Jesus forbade the twelve to go to the Gentiles and the Samaritans (Matt. x.
8), and repeated to his disciples that the "mysteries of Heaven" were for
them alone, not for the multitudes (Mark iv. 11). SD II. [[Vol. 2, Page]]
