TCPJ Newsletter #179 – If They Believe in Jesus, Why Do They Denigrate Christians?Posted: July 30, 2015
When Islamists like former ACO (American Center for Outreach) director Remziya Suleyman tells you how she also reveres Jesus, most apologist Christians (especially those Family of Abraham fanatics) breathe the interfaith “they are just like us” sigh of relief.
The Muslim Brotherhood also “loves Jesus”
Last year, the MSA (Muslim Students Association) at East Tennessee State University put on a program called “Jesus in Islam”:
“We did a couple of lectures on campus last year,” Nimer [MSA President], said. “One was ‘Jesus in Islam.’ We talked about the misconceptions people have because a lot of people think we don’t believe in Jesus. We do, we love him, we respect him and we follow his teachings.”
Did the MSA read where the Quran says we are all supposedly Muslims which is why they refer to converts as “reverts”? According to the Quran, “Esa,” is Jesus’ real name because Jesus was a Muslim, he was not crucified and did not die on the cross but instead, ascended to Allah and anyone claiming otherwise is a liar, so when Jesus returns, he will “be a witness against Jews and Christians for believing in his death.” (4:157-159)
Did the MSA inform attendees that the hadith (traditions and sayings of Muhammad) say that when Jesus comes back, he goes on a pilgrimage to Mecca, he breaks the cross, kills the pig, does away with the “jizyah” (tax on Jews and Christians) and helps destroy Christianity once and for all?
“He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam.”
A Nashville Islamist tells Christians the truth if they will only hear it
In 1999 Awadh Binhazim, former Austin CAIR chapter leader and former board member at the Islamic Center of Nashville (ICN), proselytized Islam in Nashville through his Olive Tree Education project. Among Islamists operating in Tennessee, he was one of the least deceptive. While serving as the Vanderbilt Muslim chaplain, he admitted that Islam commands death for homosexuality, that Islam is not a matter of personal opinion but whatever Allah (as delivered by Mohammed) decreed. He lectured Islam’s supremacist belief regarding what Muslims believe about the Gospel:
“When Muslims say they believe in the Ingil, the Gospel and they believe in the Torah, and they believe in the Psalms, they qualify. They believe that there has been a change in the text of the Torah and the Gospel. Therefore, originality was lost…Authenticity was lost. And Muslis regard this to be a deliberate change by corrupt priests of the time. They distorted the word of God and eliminated the original Hebrew and Aramaic versions of their scriptures.”
Binhazim also publicized the writings by al-Qaeda operative Anwar al-Awlaki and senior Muslim Brotherhood leader and terrorism financing unindicted co-conspirator Jamal Badawi through his Olive Tree Education website:
Daoud Abudiab, founder of the Tennessee Faith and Culture Center which will be hosting an Islamophobia conference in September, partnered in dawa (proselytizing) with Binhazim.
Knoxville’s Anoor Academy textbook also teaches about Christians
Binhazim’s belief in the supremacy of Islam is also reflected in the textbook “What Islam Is All About” used at the private Islamic school in Knoxville. The textbook teaches the students this about Christians:
p.187 – “So, although the Christians and Jews may make a big noise about following Prophet Ibrahim, in fact, neither of them do. Prophet Ibrahim fulfilled Allah’s commands, the Jews don’t even follow half of what their corrupted books say. The Christians don’t follow anything except what their philosophers and priests make up from time to time.”
p.188 – “Prophet Ibrahim told people to do good and he forbade the wrong. Many ‘religious’ and ‘non-religious’ Jews and Christians lead such decadent and immoral lives that lying, alcohol, nudity, pronography, racism, foul language, pre-marital sex, homosexuality and everything else are accepted in their society, churches and synagogues. Just turn on the television in any Jewish or Christian community and see what’s ‘normal.’”
Quoting passages from the Quran, page 282 mocks Christians saying, “[w]hat does Allah say about all this nonsense that the Christian religion teaches?” and claims that Paul’s doctrines are false.
Other pages in the textbook are devoted to convincing the students that it’s not a good idea to have Christian friends but if for some reason they do only become friends to fulfill the duty to convert them to Islam.
ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America), another Muslim Brotherhood organization, uses “we love Jesus” for their dawa but conceals that the Quran says Muhammad revealed the Ingil (Gospel) to “Esa” (Jesus) because he was a Muslim. Exactly what these kids are being taught:
On Friday, July 24, 2015, when police in Chattanooga were escorting the funeral procession for Marine Staff Sgt. David Wyatt to the Chattanooga National Cemetery, some Baptists and their children attended prayers at the the Islamic Society of Greater Chattanooga, the jihad murderer’s mosque, to “…show them that we love them.”
The Christian women, who attended and brought their daughters, all wore headscarves. They “…asked that their church not be identified because not everyone was in agreement with them visiting, said they were struck by how similar the service was to the Christian messages they are used to hearing.”
The imam didn’t talk about the murders but for the benefit of a dawa opportunity did talk about the basics of Islam. This guy knows ignorant dhimmi Christians when he sees them.
