There is so much that is just wrong about this: some Brits are putting together a one-hour “special” on the Muslim view of Jesus. From this story in the far-left’s birdcage liner of record, the Guardian, the essence of Islam’s view of Jesus:
There was no manger, Christ is not the Messiah, and the crucifixion never happened. A forthcoming ITV documentary will portray Jesus as Muslims see him.
With the Koran as a main source and drawing on interviews with scholars and historians, the Muslim Jesus explores how Islam honours Christ as a prophet but not as the son of God. According to the Koran the crucifixion was a divine illusion. Instead of dying on the cross, Jesus was rescued by angels and raised to heaven.
This is dhimmitude of the worst kind, as it actively collaborates in denying the faith of a large majority of Britons, who are at least nominally Christian. So it not only appeases the Muslim God-deniers, it panders to their warped and evil (not too strong a word) view of Jesus Christ.
One voice of reason?
Patrick Sookhdeo, an Anglican canon and spokesman for the Barnabas Fund, which works with persecuted Christians, accused broadcasters of double standards. Mr Sookhdeo, who was born a Muslim and converted to Christianity in 1969, said: “How would the Muslim community respond if ITV made a programme challenging Muhammad as the last prophet?”The Koran’s denial of Jesus’s divinity was “unacceptable”. “On the last day the Koran says Jesus will destroy all the crosses. How can we praise that?”
“How would the Muslim community respond if ITV made a programme challenging Muhammad as the last prophet?”
How, indeed, can we praise that? Unless equal time is given to telling our side of the story, the program is just another piece of Muslim appeasement. As for how the Muslim community would respond to a program challenging Mohammad’s place in the history of Islam? Is there any doubt whatsoever that the violence would be of tsunami proportions?
