Dear Jens,

First understand that it is not the teaching of Jesus (May peace and blessings of Allah on him) to draw cartoons. Obviously Jesus (May peace and blessings of Allah on him) never told his followers to draw useless cartoons and take joy out of it. So Jesus (May peace and blessings of Allah on him) true followers do not participate in cartoon creation etc.

What I believe no matter if you are a Muslim, Jew or Christian, if you believe in Allah and the Last Day and do good deeds then Allah is all seeing and all knowing. Allah will reward accordingly. I would say, you continue to follow Bible and Jesus (May peace and blessings of Allah on him) till your death like the true believer. Once you started to follow Jesus (May peace and blessings of Allah on him) every difference will dilute.

You said "I had the impression that you were a true globalist". The answer is no. I am a Muslim and believes and wish to follow Quran and teachings of Last Prophet Mohammad (May peace and blessings of Allah on him).

You shouldn't be in doubt while saying "who would grant equal rights and protection to all religions, and that you would demand the respect of all prophets, muslim and non-muslim". You are right I am looking forward for justice to all may they be Muslims or non-Muslims. However you have to wait for second coming of Jesus (May peace and blessings of Allah on him) to see the truth of your believe about Curixfication, Trinity and not considering Prophet Mohammad (May peace and blessings of Allah on him) as last messenger of Allah.

Dear Jens, I see no need to issue death penalty to anyone unless some system of justice is in place. Once Islamic law is in place, and someone deliberately breaks the law and is not giving any excuse then proper actions could be taken. Consider cartoon case, you are doing everything within your Danish law. Right now, I see that there is no need to issue a death sentence on you or me or anyone else.

Just like Denmark discrimination based on gender, color or ethnicity is not legal in Islam. However Islam differentiate between a Muslim and a non-Muslim. You could find rights of non-Muslim or Dhimmi in the books of Islamic Fiqh.

You asked "You insist on your right to insult Christianity and 2 billion christians. This would be no crime in front of a islamic court.Am I right?" You are right, Islamic court will not punish a Muslim on his disbelief of Curixfication, Trinity and considering Prophet Mohammad (May peace and blessings of Allah on him) as last messenger of Allah.

You said that the Swedish artist Lars Wilk has drawn a picture of Mohammad. May I ask if Jesus (May peace and blessings of Allah on him) asked in Bible to draw this kind of picture? Will it bring rewards to him on the last day of judgement? After drawing picture Lars Wilk got close to Jesus (May peace and blessings of Allah on him)? Answer to all these questions is No, it has nothing to do with Jesus (May peace and blessings of Allah on him) and Bible. So it is up to you to decide should you or should you not defend Lars Wilk on the basis of Jesus (May peace and blessings of Allah on him) and Bible?

You said "It is not a simple matter to take a human life, but muslim mullahs from Pakistan do not agree with you". It is not the case, almost all major mullah agree with me.

Dear Jens, Inqvisition is not like Islamic Fiqh Court. Burning is not allowed. Rather anything is not allowed unless a system of justice is in place. Islamic court is different. If it is not I will condemn all forms of Islamic Courts.

You wrote "Dialog and respect are about two sides bending against each other. But Islam will never bend. Am I Right?". My perspective is that after second coming of Jesus (May peace and blessings of Allah on him) dialogs will be useful. Before that ask EU to prepare for Armagadon.

You said "God said: "This is my son, whom I love. Listen to him.". I love Jesus (May peace and blessings of Allah on him) also. May I be with him and Prophet Mohammad (May peace and blessings of Allah on him) on the last Day of Judgment.

You said "So it is God, not man, who say that Jesus is the Son of God.". I understand your point. But do you believe that Jesus (May peace and blessings of Allah on him) "is a" God? And did Jesus (May peace and blessings of Allah on him) ever said that he "is a" God or worship him?

You said "Or can we better say, that the Christian God is not the same God as the Muslim God Allah." I believe that there is only God/Allah and it is humans that made two, three or more gods.

Nowhere in Quran Allah says "Mary, Mother of Jesus is Myriam, sister of Moses". They are not. Please quote the reference from Quran.

You said "Muslims have no clue what the Trinity is.". Quran says that Christians believe that Allah is one in three which is inline with what you said. However we believe that Jesus (May peace and blessings of Allah on him) was born miraculously and Allah is one and there is no one like Him.

As for Holy Spirit, you will agree that there is a wide difference between various Christian sects Roman Catholicism, Pentecostalism, Orthodoxy, Dispensationalism, Churches of God, Third Wave Branch Davidian, Some Messianics etc.

You said "and the devil offers him the whole world as his kingdom". Do you really think devil has the power/authority to give whole world to anyone?

And I believe Jesus like Mohammad (May peace and blessings on him), must have said "My kingdom is not of this world".

Do you think Mohammad (May peace and blessings on him) is a Prophet? If not who is the last Prophet that has to come after Jesus mentioned in Bible? If that Prophet is not Mohammad (May peace and blessings on him) who is that Prophet and when he will come?

Dear Jens, become a true believer of Jesus (May peace and blessings on him), and become a man, who rejects the power, that Jesus reject. A man, who forsake the carnal pleasure, that Jesus forsake. A man, who is being killed, where Jesus is killed.

Kind Regards,

Syed Rafey Husain.
