Reader comment on item: Anti-Muslim Racism?

Submitted by Samia (Canada), Dec 11, 2005 at 20:54

Dear CSS
I have nothing to criticize Mr. Pipes about. He makes a legitimate argument. It is acutally rather dumb of people who call him racist. However, I really do not understand what you are trying to say. You are saying that Muslims are racist because we say Jesus (peace be upon him) was a man and not son of God and did not die. Hmm, or maybe it's not because we are being racist but just because it is part of our religion. It is what is written in our holy book, the Qur'an, and in case you did not know, Muslims have immense respect for Jesus. You might also not know this, Jesus IS one of our prophets. Why would we disrespect a man who we hold as high as Muhammad (peace be upon him). I really, don't understand. Maybe if you ever read my comment, you would care to explain to me. We do not defame Jesus, he is one of the most incredible creations of God and a great contributor towards both Christianity and Islam. Don't put such a blame on me as I highly respect Jesus and take him to be a great man indeed.

By the way, if you were ever interested, it is said in the holy Qur'an Jesus was a prophet send down by God, born to virgin Mary, who was told by Gabriel of this good news. He served God throughout his life and spoke as an infant to save his mother's reputation and did not die on the cross, rather was raised by God and replaced by Juda (sorry if I spell the name wrong) who betrayed our beloved prophet, Jesus (peace be upon him). He was capable of wonders such as healing the blind and waking the dead. See a resemblence...I think you do. Now can msulims stop hating christians and cristians stop hating muslims. We are the closets religions that there are, and it would be nice if we could just make an attempt to learn about each other instead of expressing how stupid the other one is. I personally am fascinated by christianity as it allows me to lactually learn so much about Islam. I know many of you will read this and leave hate comments about how stupid you think I am. But honestly, i just want the calamity to stop and for each other to realize how similar we really are.
