Professor Hired for Outreach to Muslims Delivers a Jolt (Says Islam is a Christian Heresy)

MÜNSTER, Germany – Muhammad Sven Kalisch, a Muslim convert and Germany’s first professor of Islamic theology, fasts during the Muslim holy month, doesn’t like to shake hands with Muslim women and has spent years studying Islamic scripture. Islam, he says, guides his life.

So it came as something of a surprise when Prof. Kalisch announced the fruit of his theological research. His conclusion: The Prophet Muhammad probably never existed.

Muslims, not surprisingly, are outraged. Even Danish cartoonists who triggered global protests a couple of years ago didn’t portray the Prophet as fictional. German police, worried about a violent backlash, told the professor to move his religious-studies center to more-secure premises.

**Scandal exposes Islam’s weakness

**By Spengler

In an odd little byway of academia, Professor Muhammad Sven Kalisch, a German convert to Islam who teaches Muslim theology, has laid a Gnostic egg in the nest of Islam by declaring that the Prophet Mohammed never existed, at least not as Islamic tradition claims he did. It is another crack in the edifice of Islam, but a most dangerous one, because it came from the inside. (Nov 17,'08)
