    He made an "X" instead of a signature.

    In more modern times we hear, "There are Hadiths (Islamic traditions attributed to Mohammed) regarding our struggle against the Jews. And it is given: 'The day of resurrection will not arrive until the Muslims make war against the Jews and kill them, and until a Jew hiding behind a rock and tree, and the rock and tree will say: 'Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!' This Hadith clarifies to us the characteristics of the campaign between us and the Jews. The tree and the rock do not say 'Oh, Palestinian,' 'Oh Arab,' or 'Oh resident of the Middle East.' Rather they say: 'Oh, Muslim, Servant of Allah.'" (Palestinian TV, March 30, 2001)

    And so, those radicals must be stopped at all costs. They wish to Islamize the western world and will stop at nothing, including murder of innocent men, women and children.

    Muhammad know a little bit of reading and writing, but isn't very competent of doing those things.

    Whenever Muhammad need to read and/or write in details, he ask a person he trust to do those things.

    You need to say what peace agreement you are referring to. And, back then, most people had a mark that stood for their name. Few could read or write.

    Gee I don't know. How do you suppose illiterate ex-slaves signed contracts to fight for the Union army during the civil war?

    They made their mark, and someone who could read witnessed it for them.

    Thinking isn't your strong suit is it?

    I think you are asking about Sulah Hudaibiya.

    Hazrat Ali (R.A.) was literate, and by the way, he signed the contract on his part and read the treaty.
