The Quran against the Bible
Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict XVI and the Koran

You wrote to ahmad zafire :
>Think about it, how can Jesus have prophetized about Muhammad who reversed the peaceful message of Christ, does it make sense to you?
You surely know how the Muslim mind operates and understand why this argument is comepletely lost on Muslims. For them Christians and Jews have distorted their original Holy Scripture. They have maliciously deleted all the clear passages revealed to them by Allah where Mohammed's advent and prophethood had been foretold. Their "Infallible" Quran teaches them :
"Those who follow the messenger, the Prophet who can neither read nor write, (=Muhammed) whom they will find described in the Torah and the Gospel (which are) with them. (7.157)
"And lo! there is a party of them who distort the Scripture with their tongues, that ye may think that what they say is from the Scripture, when it is not from the Scripture. And they say: It is from Allah, when it is not from Allah; and they speak a lie concerning Allah knowingly."(3.78)
"And because of their breaking their covenant, We have cursed them and made hard their hearts. They change words from their context and forget a part of that whereof they were admonished. Thou wilt not cease to discover treachery from all save a few of them. (5.13)
Bearing this in mind the Christians and Jews cannot preserve and continue (and quote!) in perpetuity their corrupt version of the Scripture to prove anything. Their religions are based on this "lie" as "proved" by the Quran. Sooner or later they have to admit that Muhammad has been foretold in the Torah and Gospel, that their false Bible has been corrected and improved by the Quran which makes at last clear what the Jews and Christians did not understand correctly from their own writings.
The problem is however , that if they do admit the above Judaism's and Christianity's existence beside Islam becomes obsolete and loses any legitimacy.
>Jesus has fullfilled thousands of years of prophecies that no one and difinately no prophet will ever dream of.
The Muslims have their own view on Jesus' role both in the past and in the future. He will be a terrorist. He will reappear before the end of the world to head the final jihad assault against the infidels. He will rule for 40 years, be a happy father with his wife belonging to the Ghassanid clan. He will die afterwards. But on the Day of Judgment He will be a witness against Christians and Jews that have rejected Muhammed and the Quran. ( al-Bukhari , Volume 4, Book 55, Number 657; Sunan Abu Dawud Book 37, Number 4310)
Foretasting the solemn funeral the Muslims have already taken precautions and prepared a grave for Jesus in Medina - close to his "paternal brother" Muhammed - in the Green Mosque.
