“Jesus is a Muslim” demo in London

First posted: 20th February, 2013
... written by the Muslim editor of the New Statesman, Medhi Hasan.

Last Saturday there was a demo held by the banned al-Muhajiroun Islamic group. Their main theme was that “Jesus is a Muslim”.

This group is led by Anjem Choudary. The group renamed itself, following its ban in 2010, into the 'Muslims Against Crusades' which was also banned in 2011. The group has since ceased to operate under any name in an attempt to evade authorities.

The banned group carried out Islamic dawah outside Tooting Broadway tube station; just six miles from the Houses of Parliament.  Visitors to Tooting last Saturday said that the Muslims who were handing out flyers were 'intimidating'. The protestors also unfurled a large banner reading, "Jesus is a Muslim".
Muslims use Jesus as a selling point for Islam. This is not just the case with Anjem Choudary and other blatant - but honest! -  Islamists; but also the far more insidious, powerful and ultimately dangerous Muslims who indulge in what Christians call “Interfaith” but what they take as simple Islamic dawah (proselytising on behalf of Islam).

“That they said (in boast), ‘We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah’;- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them...” – Koran,  4:157

“So believe in God and His apostles and do not say: ‘Three.’” – Koran, 4:171

‘The Messiah, Jesus the son of Mary, was no more than God’s apostle and His word which he cast to Mary: a spirit from Him.’ (4:171)

“Said Jesus the son of Mary: ‘O Allah our Lord!’” - Qur'an 5:114
Islam's Jesus shares zero with the Jesus of Christianity; save the name "Jesus".

The Islamic/Muslim Jesus:

i) Was a Muslim.
ii) Was never crucified on the cross ("but it only appeared that way").
iii) Forecast the Final Prophet - Muhammad. (He is simply a precursor of Muhammad.)
iv) Will be/is married will have/has children.
v) Visited Mecca and Medina.
vi) Had as his main “mission” the duty to tell the world about the Islamic “end-times”.
vii) Will tell all Christians and Jews to convert to Islam and stop eating pork.

Thus Jesus is a tool of Interfaith Muslims to draw in gullible interfaith Christians. That is,

interfaith = Islamic dawah

Not only that. Jesus simply led the way to Islam and Muhammad.

What is it, then, that the Islamic Jesus shares with the Christian Jesus?
“And remember, Jesus, the son of Mary, said: ‘O Children of Israel! I am the apostle of Allah (sent) to you, confirming the Law (which came) before me, and giving Glad Tidings of an Messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmad.’ But when he came to them with Clear Signs, they said, ‘this is evident sorcery!’” – Koran, 61:6

“Christ Jesus the son of Mary ...” –Koran, 4:171

“Christ Jesus...was no more than a messenger of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him: ... Say not ‘Trinity’.”  - Koran, 4:171
