Dr. Armin Geus

According to the German website Politically Incorrect, Dr. Armin Geus, emeritus professor of medical history at the University of Marburg, who wrote a book exploring the possibility that Mohammed, the supposed founder of Islam, had been suffering from a mental illness, is now under investigation for "Incitement to hatred against peoples" and "Insulting faiths, religious communities and philosophical associations". The investigation was prompted by a complaint filed by the Saudi-controlled Wahhabist centre, the King Fahd Academy.

The Illness of the Prophet


The professor's book “Die Krankheit des Propheten” [The Illness of the Prophet] (ISBN 978-3-941365-15-5) came to the conclusion that Mohammed suffered from paranoid-hallucinatory schizophrenia. I haven't read the book, but Geus is a serious academic, recognised in his field. The question of whether Mohammed suffered from a mental illness should be a legitimate subject for scientific inquiry. But not where Muslims, and their apologists, hold sway. Where Islam spreads, freedom dies.

Unusually for PI items, there is no link to a primary news source for this story, but the website is usually reliable.

Source: PI

UPDATE: A few people have requested the contact details for the Marburg prosecutor's office (Staatsanwaltschaft Marburg), so here they are.

Address: 35037 Marburg, Universitätsstraße 48
Tel.: 06421 / 290 - 0
Fax: 06421 / 290 - 211

They give a few email addresses on their website but say explicitly that they are only concerned with the website itself and should not be used for other matters. Here they are anyway:

verwaltung@sta-marburg.justiz.hessen.de

Hessisches Ministerium der Justiz, für Integration und Europa
Referat für Öffentlichkeitsarbeit

Email: redaktion-internet@hmdj.hessen.de

If you really want to register a protest against the investigation, your German embassy would be another option.

As far as I know, the book is not available in English.

You, or anyone else can speculate, about Mo's mental health for the rest of their lives, and prove nothing.
However,a study his life's "work" will reveal he was a sadistic, lying, mass murdering, thieving paedophile.

You're assuming he actually existed and isn't a fictional character.

And what business does the German government have trying to limit what can be written?

Why is Islam off limits for discussion?

Funny. That was exactly what I was thinking a couple of days ago.

Muhammad the sex-starved pedophile was an insane schizophrenic paranoid not human but a beast in all its evil forms who I hope and pray
is burning and rotting in the eternal inferno of
Hell.

Does anyone know where letters to the German government supporting Dr.Geus and protesting this investigation should be addressed?
Thanks.

Personally, I'd say Mohammad was afflicted and possessed by a demon or two.

The tentacles of Islam reach out. Is the Professor's book available in English?

Another book in English, rather than German, can be found on Amazon.

Islam Dismantled: The Mental Illness of Prophet Muhammad by Sujit Das and Ali Sina

This book dismantles Islam by exposing the imposture of Muhammad. The historical Muhammad is too privileged to be formally evaluated in the fashion a clinical psychologist would like. But given certain of his well-known and highly documented behaviors, it is certain that he had a conflict-ridden psychological dependence on others. He was not capable of introspection. He had shown all the symptoms of his lunacy and his prophetic claim was based on the quicksand of grand delusion. But the irony is that the entire religion of Islam is based on the truth claim of such a man who could easily swing back and forth between the two extremes - reality and fantasy. Like the mythological Narcissus, he actually worshipped his own image - not God. He had created Allah in his own image and attributed to that God the qualities of his own self. He used Islam to pervade Muslim psyche, and possessed their mind. Islam is an extremely defenseless religion and hence vulnerable to collapse. "Defenseless" in the sense, there is not a single atom of truth in it to support. This failed religion, originated from the grand delusion of a malignant Narcissist, is the biggest hoax humanity has ever seen. It is like a house of cards - looks tall, big, mighty and gigantic but the base is very weak. The aim of this book is to diagnose Muhammad by making use of biographical data and through the application of psychological theory and research. This psychobiography is all about the "why" - the question of motives. It uncovers the private motives behind his public acts. This book presents two theses - Muhammad suffered from malignant narcissism, and was also affected by neurotic disorder which caused regular psychiatric delusions.

Germany is so desperate to make amends for its murder of Jews who posed zero threat to the country that they are now falling over themselves to allow people who are genuinely a threat to it to destroy it...

So true. Facts aren't the issue. It's beliefs.

WHILE I AGREE WITH ALL THE OPINIONS ABOVE WITHOUT EXCEPTION THE PROBLEM WE FACE IS HOW TO DISMANTLE THIS ODIOUS SICK SO CALLED RELIGION. ONE WHICH TREATS WOMEN SO APPALLINGLY IT DEFIES DESCRIPTION AND WHICH IS SO CRUEL, BENT, REVOLTING AND TWISTED THAT THE DANGER IT POSES MUST SOMEHOW BE BROUGHT TO THE ATTENTION OF ALL. OTHERWISE WE ARE INDEED GOING TO BE OVER-RUN BY THE MOSQUERATS (WONDERFUL DESCRIPTION) AND WILL IN THE END HAVE TO FIGHT PHYSICALLY TO RETAIN OUR FREEDOMS AND WAYS OF LIFE.
tHEIR SO CALLED PROPHET? YES SICK TWISTED AND A PAEDOPHILE WOMAN HATER. AS ONE WHO FIGHTS AGAINST PAEDOPHILES DAILY IN COMPANY WITH OTHER BRAVE AND DEDICATED WOMEN AND MEN HE WOULD IF ALIVE TODAY HAVE BEEN CAPTURED BY US AND JAILED BY THE COURTS.

Islam is the fastest growing faith in Britain. Hundreds and thousands of
Brits are reverting to Islam. By the middle of this century, over half of
Brits would be Muslims.

New research has shown more women convert to Islam than men - in fact, they
account for 60 per cent of conversions. They believed that they should be a
force for good by building bridges between the Muslim and Non Muslim
communities in order to understand Islam better.

Examples of women who have left high powered jobs in the city, educated
women who mostly found out about Islam independently via books, the internet
or discussion with Muslims; seem to be the picture that is portrayed in this
study. This clearly demonstrates a clear pattern of converts who while non
Muslim rethought their lives and actively sought to reject secular values,
for a belief system offering spiritual and worldly guidance in order to
regulate life in a meaningful and fulfilling way. The rejection of
materialism and decadence seem to be some of the catalysts in making that
change.

One of the most high-profile examples is Tony Blair's sister-in-law Lauren
Booth, who recently announced she had adopted the faith after a trip to
Iran. The conversion of Lauren Booth will have a positive impact, despite
claims that it is just attention-seeking. It will encourage people to
convert, unless they idolise her, but I think that it will educate people
and make them more interested in learning about Muslims. It’s all about
having a look at the Quran with an open mind, without presumptions and
assumptions…Then would the reader understand what the beautiful religion is
all about….

Increasing numbers of young, university-educated women in their twenties and
thirties are converting to Islam. Well – educated white women are more
likely to convert to Islam than other groups. Through wearing modest
clothing, all the way to a head scarf, it’s no longer about how you look, It’s
getting free from this idea that you are defined by your dress size.” At the
London Central Mosque in Regent’s Park, women account for roughly two thirds
of the “New Muslims” who make their official declarations of faith – and
most of them are under the age of 30.

The question is why are so-called liberated women choosing Islam. Such women
are part of an intriguing trend. They seek spirituality, a higher meaning,
and tend to be deep thinkers.

While 9/11 has led to a western military and ideological onslaught on Islam,
9/11 has also been the catalyst for increasing numbers, born and bred in the
west, to question and reject western values and convert to Islam.

It is also of no surprise that no matter what policies or narrative is
pushed by governments, writers, thinkers or elements of the media to try and
reason away such conversions as ‘fringe’, ‘coercion’ or ‘blind following,’
this trend will continue in a world that seeks to understand the extent to
which Capitalist liberal values have failed man in every sense and left a
void which can only be filled by the truth!

"I have always held the religion of Muhammad in high estimation because of
its wonderful vitality. It is the only religion which appears to me to
possess that assimilating capacity to the changing phase of existence which
can make itself appeal to every age. I have studied him - the wonderful man
and in my opinion for from being an anti-Christ, he must be called the
Saviour of Humanity. I believe that if a man like him were to assume the
dictatorship of the modern world, he would succeed in solving its problems
in a way that would bring it the much
needed peace and happiness: I have prophesied about the faith of Muhammad
that it would be acceptable to the Europe of tomorrow as it is beginning to
be acceptable to the Europe of today." [G.B. Shaw, THE GENUINE ISLAM, Vol.
1, No. 81936.]

-If terrorism and violence is vitality then yes.

"It is the only religion which... ...can make itself appeal to every age."

-In every age there are always people who want to 'go back' to the previous age. Islam is like the Amish (but without those pesky Christian morals, and with machine guns).

"I have studied him - the wonderful man and in my opinion far from being an anti-Christ, he must be called the Saviour of Humanity."

-Anti-Christ is not a ambiguous term. If you are against everything that Jesus Christ stood for then you are AN anti-Christ. I can't think of anyone more opposite to Jesus than Mohammad and anything more antithetical to real Christianity than islam.

"I believe that if a man like him were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world, he would succeed in solving its problems... ...and would bring it... ...peace and happiness."

-Even in your lies you let the truth slip. DICTATORSHIP. I'm sure it would be great for rich heterosexual muslim men. For everyone else it would be equivalent to hell on earth. Take your taqiyya lies somewhere else. It's getting hard to hear them over the mountains of dead bodies, killed by your fellow muslims.

I think some people here are making an elephant out of a molehill. There is nothing big in Germany going on. When someone makes a claim to the prosecutor that a crime has been committed, it's the prosecutor's duty, by law, to start an investigation. And it is pretty obvious what will happen in the end: the prosecutor will decide that this claim has no basis, that the professor's book is protected by freedom of speech and academia(the German constitution has a special protection clause for academic work, on top of free speech) and the case will be closed. This is a simple routine thing, not worth any emotion.
Btw, German prosecutors and courts are independent, i.e. letters will not have any impact. So don't waste your time.

Iftikhar Ahmad,

Yours is NOT a quotation from G.B. (George Bernard) Shaw. In all his writings, Shaw NEVER ONCE used the word Muhammad. He mentions Islam four times, never praising it. The quotation that you have used (and hundreds of Muslims have used on the web) is from a publication of "International Union of Islamic Propaganda and Service", an "Organ of the All-Malaya Muslim Missionary Society." In short, it's a lie.

Germany is not a free and open democracy in the American sense. If you are skeptical of the holocaust and have evidence to back up your claims it is still a criminal offence. www.holocaustdenier.com Islam is also off limits to criticism. But not christianity. You can say you don't believe in God or that Jesus Christ never existed and nothing will happen to you.

What surprises me is that Dr. Geus' book, which I have read, is critical not only of Mohamed but of all prophets whatever the religion, including christianity. How come that nobody commented about this ?

'What surprises me is that Dr. Geus' book, which I have read, is critical not only of Mohamed but of all prophets whatever the religion, including christianity. How come that nobody commented about this ?' It is the duty of Muslim states to criminalize blasphemy against any Semitic-Abrahamitic Prophet or Nabi. Godless judeo-christian neo-paganism does not care about Abrahamic Truth.
