Islamic Imperialism

Reader comment on item: Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism
in response to reader comment: Muhammed, Islam and Muslims, oh my..

Donvan,

Muslims do not, and should not, have anything against Christ or his teachings. In fact the Quran (Islamic Holy Book) refers to Jesus as the soul of God. Furthermore Jesus predicted the coming of the next Messiah named Ahmed (one of the prophet Muhammed's other names). The only differentiating factor is that Muslims do not believe he was crucified. He was spiritually uplifted before this.

Also the word Islam means peace. The Quraan is original and has never been changed. There people amongst the Muslims who memorise the Quraan by heart. This ensures that it can never be changed even if every copy is destroyed. There was movie a long time ago, can't remember the name where a lot bad thing was depicted about Jesus and the Muslims objected.

Unfortunately all religions is practised to suit peoples needs. Eg: You get Muslims who drink alcohol which is forbidden in our religion. Christians who eat pork, the first testament forbids you from doing so (Go check this). Christians who eat pork probably taken the new testament into account where this is not mentioned. The name of Jesus to Muslims is "Esah" and we believe in this prophet strongly. Like one of the comments on this forum, it is not fair to comment on the global religion of 1,3 billion for the doings of Thousands. Look deeper into Islam and you will find peace.
