Oh my God, another mosque again? When will it end? Few years ago I have been in Iowa visiting friends and didn't see a single Muslim around. I am sure this is paid by rich Arab countries in the Middel East or Pakistan. The difference is if our weak leaders ask to open one Church they will be told never to ask such stupid question. This is not a place of worship as Christians knew but a colonial post where they will branch out further in to small towns, villages and hamlets.t

If muslims didn't try to emulate their perfect man then they wouldn't have to worry about being safe.
But, then again they wouldn't be muslims.

Same applies for non-Muslims.

He was not a fat dwarf but the reports of his Companions say of medium height so _stop_ lying.

AbdusSalam ibn AbuHazim AbuTalut said: I saw AbuBarzah who came to visit Ubaydullah ibn Ziyad. Then a man named Muslim who was there in the company mentioned it to me.

When Ubaydullah saw him, he said: This Muhammad of yours is a dwarf and fat. The old man (i.e. AbuBarzah) understood it. So he said: I did not think that I should remain among people who would make me feel ashamed of the company of Muhammad (peace be upon him).
Thereupon Ubaydullah said: The company of Muhammad (peace be upon him) is a honour for you, not a disgrace. He added: I called for you to ask about the reservoir. Did you hear the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) mentioning anything about it? AbuBarzah said: Yes, not once, twice, thrice, four times or five times. If anyone believes it, may Allah not supply him with water from it. He then went away angrily.
Abu Dawud 40:4731

By saying he "heard and understood it", it is saying that the description was accurate. His only thought was that he did not want to be around those who made him feel ashamed of the company of Muhammad. If the description was not accurate, he would have objected or thought "these people have no idea what they're talking about".

Interesting that you chose that one point to dispute, particularly as most fat dwarfs are probably decent people.
