Hooper of CAIR spewed malignant malarkey, asserting falsely that
Muslims love Jesus Christ.
He cherry picked Qur'an verses which superficially make his case of
common ground. But the common ground turns to quicksand when we
delve more deeply into Islam's canon.
The Qur"an denies Christ's paternity & deity in 1930...34 and his crucifixion, death and resurrection in 4.157. Authentic hadith depict him as inferior to Moe in Sahih Bukhari 6.60.3 and as a genocidal warlord who will eliminate the remaining Jews and Christians in Sahih Bukhari 4.55.653 & Sunan Abu Dawud 37.4310. For greater clarity, see Tafsir Ibn Kathir: "Eternal Humiliation placed on the Jews" For full documentation, see: "The Defamation Of Jesus Christ".
Allah explicitly forbids Muslims from being on friendly or equal terms with Christians: 5.51, 9.33; they can not be our friends and Islam must be dominant.
The Qur'an curses us: 2:161, 9.30. Allah calls us "the worst of living creatures" 8.22. 98.6. Every time they pray, Muslims recite Surah Al-Fatiuha, reminding Allah why he should burn us.
Allah commands Muslims to wage war against us until we are subjugated, acknowledge the superiority of Islam and make annual extortion payments: 9.29,. which is confirmed by Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387 and codified in Shari'ah as The Reliance Of The Traveller O9.9.
Muslims are commanded not to greet us first and to force us to the narrowest part of the road. They are commanded to pray for Moe in 33.56 because he was a sinner who did not know "what Allah will do with me". When Muslims append PBUH to the Profit's title, they are praying that Allah will lessen the torments of the grave for Moe. [For the grisly details, see Mishkat ul-Misabih] When Muslims say "Jesus, PBUH" they are denigrating him, equating him to a sinner who is being tormented in his grave whereas the sinless Christ's tomb is empty.
Hooper does not directly assert that Jesus is a Muslim, but he quotes a hadith that implies it. I have added emphasis to make two phrases stand out.
The Prophets are paternal brothers: they have a common father; Moe is claiming to be Christ's half brother; remember that Islam denies Christ's paternity. Born 530 years apart, they could not share a human father. Islam and Christianity are not identical, they are not even close. Islam is a predatory way of life which preys upon the rest of the human race. The original religion of Islam is Jihad.
What sort of Prophet would claim that God married him to the mother of his half-brother? What sort of Prophet would be married to the Mother of Jesus?
departure to the eternal world, the Prophet visited her and said, “To me it is a heavy
burden to see you thus, but when you reach your place in Paradise give your companions
“Who are they?” she inquired. He replied, “Maryam, daughter of Imran, Kulthum, sister of
Musa, Asiya wife of Firon, all of whom, with yourself, will be my wives in Paradise.” “May
the union be blessed,” added Khadija. [Hayat al-Qulub, pg. 415 http://www.al-islam.org/printpdf/book/export/html/19336]
The claim that Jesus is Muslim falls flat on its face when we see that Moe was the first Muslim: 6.14, 39.12, Lest any lingering doubt remain, compare the orders given by Jesus and Moe in case of rejection :
- And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.Mt 10.14
- If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If
they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they
refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah's
help and fight them. Sahih Muslim 19.4294
