Islam can really be re-labelled the ‘Umayyad Invention’
It was the Umayyad’s (from Mecca) that took the pre-Islamic beliefs of the Arabs (likely influenced by a Jewish sect) and forged it into a political religion to solidify their Caliphate’s legitimacy after an early Arab civil war which they won.
No-where in the Koran, for example, is ‘Mecca’ mentioned – but what a wonderful coincidence that the Ummayad capital just happens to be the ‘birthplace of Mohammed’ – according to the Ummayads.
