Saudi Arabia urges UN to designate Hezbollah as a terrorist group

Abdallah Al-MouallimiSaudi Arabia asked On Wednesday the U.N. Security Council to add Hezbollah to its list of “terrorist organizations”.

“We call on the council to place Hezbollah on the list of terrorist organizations,” Saudi envoy to the Security Council Abdallah Al-Mouallimi said.

Mouallimi stressed that his country is committed to “international cooperation aimed at eradicating terrorism,” noting that “Saudi Arabia was one of the first countries that confronted terror.”

“The threat of foreign fighters in Syria is not limited to the country in which they are carrying out their acts, as it rather transcends the borders to reach the entire world,” Mouallimi added.

Hezbollah was founded by the Iranian regime’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) soon after the 1979 revolution in Iran. The group is fighting in Syria to save the Bashar al-Assad regime.

On November 12, The Iranian regime’s Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) boasted of how it has supplied Lebanese Hezbollah with missile systems.

Brigadier General Hajizadeh, commander of IRGC’s aerospace section told the regime’s Fars news agency: “The factories that manufacture missiles in Syria are built by Iran and the missiles designed by Iran are being manufactured there.

He said the Lebanese Hezbollah “has been taught how to build missiles by Iran” and they “have become quite expert in this field”.

Hajizadeh said all these projects were implemented with the “prodding and encouragement” of the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei himself and that it was the “wisdom of His Excellency that we build missiles with pinpoint accuracy”.

The Iranian regime’s export of missiles and related technology to other countries is in clear violation of UN Security Council resolutions banning the activity.

Other Shiite groups

Mouallemi also called on the Security Council to blacklist Shiite Iraqi militia, the League of the Righteous, and the Shiite Syrian militant group, the al-Abbas Brigades.

The U.N. Security Council on Wednesday added Libya’s Ansar al-Sharia to its terror list over the Islamist group’s ties to Al-Qaeda, AFP said Wednesday.

    It’s about effin time for the Saudis to name such organizations by their names.
    They should have done so in 2005. They knew perfectly well then who was behind the Phoenicia blast but instead they kept silence and went on to support the terrorist group in its war with Israel and later in 2008 they sat and allowed them to dictate the Doha accord…

            Christian Zionism: The Heresy that Undermines Middle East and World Peace – By Rev Dr Stephen Sizer

            Christian Zionism is the largest, most controversial and most destructive lobby within Christianity. It bears primary responsibility for perpetuating tensions in the Middle East, justifying Israel’s apartheid colonialist agenda and for undermining the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians.

            At least one in four Christians surveyed recently by Christianity Today magazine said that they believe it is their biblical responsibility to support the nation of Israel. This view is known as Christian Zionism. The Pew Research Center put the figure at 63 per cent among white evangelicals. Christian Zionism is pervasive within mainline American evangelical, charismatic and independent denominations including the Assemblies of God, Pentecostals and Southern Baptists, as well as many of the independent mega-churches. It is less prevalent within the historic denominations, which show a greater respect for the work of the United Nations, support for human rights, the rule of international law and empathy with the Palestinians.

            The origins of the movement can be traced to the early 19th century when a group of eccentric British Christian leaders began to lobby for Jewish restoration to Palestine as a necessary precondition for the return of Christ. The movement gained traction from the middle of the 19th century when Palestine became strategic to British, French and German colonial interests in the Middle East. Proto-Christian Zionism therefore preceded Jewish Zionism by more than 50 years. Some of Theodore Herzl’s strongest advocates were Christian clergy.

            Christian Zionism as a modern theological and political movement embraces the most extreme ideological positions of Zionism. It has become deeply detrimental to a just peace between Palestine and Israel. It propagates a worldview in which the Christian message is reduced to an ideology of empire, colonialism and militarism. In its extreme form, it places an emphasis on apocalyptic events leading to the end of history rather than living Christ’s love and justice today.

            Followers of Christian Zionism are convinced that the founding of the State of Israel in 1948 and the capture of Jerusalem in 1967 were the miraculous fulfillment of God’s promises made to Abraham that he would establish Israel as a Jewish nation forever in Palestine.

            Tim LaHaye’s infamous Left Behind novels, together with other End Times speculations written by authors such as Hal Lindsey, John Hagee and Pat Robertson, have sold well over 100 million copies. These are supplemented by children’s books, videos and event violent computer games.

            Burgeoning Christian Zionist organizations such as the International Christian Embassy (ICEJ), Christian Friends of Israel (CFI) and Christians United for Israel (CUFI) wield considerable influence on Capitol Hill, claiming a support base in excess of 50 million true believers. This means there are now at least ten times as many Christian Zionists as Jewish Zionists. And their European cousins are no less active in the Zionist Hasbarafia, lobbying for Israel, attacking its critics and thwarting the peace process. The United States and Israel are often portrayed as Siamese twins, joined at the heart, sharing common historic, religious and political values.

            Christian Zionists have shown varying degrees of enthusiasm for implementing six basic political convictions that arise from their ultra-literal and fundamentalist theology:

            . The belief that the Jews remain God’s chosen people leads Christian Zionists to seek to bless Israel in material ways. However, this also invariably results in the uncritical endorsement of and justification for Israel’s racist and apartheid policies, in the media, among politicians and through solidarity tours to Israel.

            . As God’s chosen people, the final restoration of the Jews to Israel is therefore actively encouraged, funded and facilitated through partnerships with the Jewish Agency.

            . Eretz Israel, as delineated in scripture, from the Nile to the Euphrates, belongs exclusively to the Jewish people, therefore the land must be annexed, Palestinians driven from their homes and the illegal Jewish settlements expanded and consolidated.

            . Jerusalem is regarded as the eternal and exclusive capital of the Jews, and cannot be shared with the Palestinians. Therefore, strategically, Christian Zionists have lobbied the US Administration to relocate its embassy to Jerusalem and thereby ensure that Jerusalem is recognised as the capital of Israel.

            . Christian Zionists offer varying degrees of support for organisations such as the Jewish Temple Mount Faithful who are committed to destroying the Dome of the Rock and rebuilding the Jewish Temple on the Haram Al-Sharif (Noble sanctuary of Al-Aqsa).

            . Christian Zionists invariably have a pessimistic view of the future, convinced that there will be an apocalyptic war of Armageddon in the imminent future. They are deeply sceptical of the possibility of a lasting peace between Jews and Arabs and therefore oppose the peace process. Indeed, to advocate an Israeli compromise of “land for peace” with the Palestinians is seen as a rejection of God’s promises to Israel and therefore to support her enemies.

            Within the Christian Zionist worldview, Palestinians are regarded as alien residents in Israel. Many Christian Zionists are reluctant even to acknowledge Palestinians exist as a distinct people, claiming that they emigrated to Israel from surrounding Arab nations for economic reasons after Israel had become prosperous. A fear and deep-seated hatred of Islam also pervades their dualistic Manichean theology. Christian Zionists have little or no interest in the existence of indigenous Arab Christians despite their continuity with the early church.

            In 2006, I drafted what became known as the Jerusalem Declaration on Christian Zionism signed by four of the Heads of Churches in Jerusalem: His Beatitude Patriarch Michel Sabbah, Latin Patriarch, Jerusalem; Archbishop Swerios Malki Mourad, Syrian Orthodox Patriarchate, Jerusalem; Bishop Riah Abu El-Assal, Episcopal Church of Jerusalem and the Middle East; and Bishop Munib Younan, Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land. In it they insisted:

            “We categorically reject Christian Zionist doctrines as a false teaching that corrupts the biblical message of love, justice and reconciliation.

            We further reject the contemporary alliance of Christian Zionist leaders and organisations with elements in the governments of Israel and the United States that are presently imposing their unilateral pre-emptive borders and domination over Palestine. This inevitably leads to unending cycles of violence that undermine the security of all peoples of the Middle East and the rest of world.

            We reject the teachings of Christian Zionism that facilitate and support these policies as they advance racial exclusivity and perpetual war rather than the gospel of universal love, redemption and reconciliation taught by Jesus Christ. Rather than condemn the world to the doom of Armageddon we call upon everyone to liberate themselves from ideologies of militarism and occupation. Instead, let them pursue the healing of the nations!

            We call upon Christians in Churches on every continent to pray for the Palestinian and Israeli people, both of whom are suffering as victims of occupation and militarism. These discriminative actions are turning Palestine into impoverished ghettos surrounded by exclusive Israeli settlements. The establishment of the illegal settlements and the construction of the Separation Wall on confiscated Palestinian land undermines the viability of a Palestinian state and peace and security in the entire region.”

            It is my contention after more than 10 years of postgraduate research that Christian Zionism is the largest, most controversial and most destructive lobby within Christianity. It bears primary responsibility for perpetuating tensions in the Middle East, justifying Israel’s apartheid colonialist agenda and for undermining the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians.

            Jesus (pbuh) was a Muslim who preached Islam –

            1. Jesus Never Calls Himself God

            The Bible contains many verses in which Jesus speaks of God as a separate person to himself. Here are just a few of them:

            When a man addressed Jesus as ‘Good Teacher’, he replied ‘Why do you call me good? No one is good except the one God.” [Mark 10:18]

            In another instance he says ‘I can’t do anything by myself. Whatever I hear, I judge, and my judgment is just. I don’t seek my own will but the will of the one who sent me.’ [John 5:30]

            Jesus speaks of God as a separate being to himself: I’m going up to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God. [John 20:17]
            In this verse he affirms that he was sent by God: This is eternal life: to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you sent. [John 17:3]

            If Jesus was God he would have told people to worship him, but he did the opposite and disapproved anyone worshipping him: And in vain they worship Me [Matthew 15:9]

            If Jesus claimed to be God than there should be hundreds of verses in the Bible which would have mentioned it. But there is not a single verse in the entire Bible in which Jesus says I am God, worship me.

            2. Jesus as Son and Lord?

            Jesus is sometimes referred to as ‘˜Lord’ in the Bible and at other times as ‘˜Son of God’. God is called the ‘˜Father’, so putting these names together it could be claimed that Jesus is the son of God. But if we look at each of these titles in context we will find that they are symbolic and not to be taken literally.

            ‘˜Son of God’ is a term used in ancient Hebrew for a righteous person. God calls Israel his ‘˜son’: This is what the LORD says: Israel is my oldest son.[Exodus 4:22]. Also, David is called the ‘˜Son of God’: The LORD has said to Me, ‘˜You are My Son, Today I have begotten You.’ [Psalm 2:7]. In fact anyone who is righteous is referred to as God’s ‘˜son’: All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons and daughters. [Romans 8:14].

            In the same way, when the word ‘˜Father’ is used to refer to God it shouldn’t be taken literally. Instead it’s a way of saying God is the creator, sustainer, cherisher etc. There are many verses for us to understand this symbolic meaning of the word ‘˜Father’, for example: one God and Father of all. [Ephesians 4:6].

            Jesus is sometimes called ‘˜Lord’ by the disciples. ‘˜Lord’ is a term used for God and also for people who are held in high esteem. There are many examples of the word ‘˜Lord’ being used for people in the Bible: So they (Joseph’s brothers) went up to Joseph’s steward and spoke to him at the entrance to the house. ‘We beg your pardon, our lord,’ they said. [Genesis 43:19-20]. Also, in other parts of the Bible, Jesus is even called a ‘˜servant’ of God by the disciples: the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus. [Acts 3:13]. This clearly shows that when ‘˜Lord’ is used to refer to Jesus, it is a title of respect not of divinity.

            3. The Nature of Jesus

            The nature of Jesus was totally different to that of God. There are many parts of the Bible that highlight this difference in nature:

            God is All-Knowing but Jesus by his own admission was not All-Knowing. This can be seen in the following passage when Jesus says ‘But nobody knows when that day or hour will come, not the heavenly angels and not the Son. Only the Father knows.’ [Matthew 24:36]

            God is independent and he doesn’t need sleep, food or water. Jesus however ate, drank, slept and depended on God: As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father. [John 6:57]. Another sign of Jesus’ dependence on God is that he prayed to God: Going a little farther, he (Jesus) fell with his face to the ground and prayed [Matthew 26:39]. This shows that Jesus himself sought help from God. God, being the one who answers prayers does not need to pray to anyone. Also, Jesus said: I am going to the Father, because the Father is greater than me. [John 14:28].

            The Bible is clear that God is unseen and is not a man: for no one may see me and live. [Exodus 33:20], God is not a man [Numbers 23:19]. Jesus on the other hand was a man who was seen by thousands of people, so he could not be God. Furthermore, the Bible makes it clear that God is too great to be inside his creation: But how could God possibly live on earth with people? If heaven, even the highest heaven, can’t contain you [2 Chronicles 6:18]. According to this verse Jesus cannot be God living on the earth.

            Also the Bible calls Jesus a Prophet [Matthew 21:10-11], so how could Jesus be God and be God’s Prophet at the same time? That wouldn’t make sense.

            Additionally the Bible informs us that God does not change: I the Lord do not change. [Malachi 3:6:]. Jesus however went through many changes in his life such as age, height, weight etc.

            These are just some of the proofs within the Bible, which make it clear that the nature of Jesus and God is completely different. Some people may claim that Jesus had both a human and a divine nature. This is a claim that Jesus never made, and is in clear contradiction to the Bible which maintains that God has one nature.

            4. The Message of Jesus

            The Prophets of the Old Testament such as Abraham, Noah and Jonah never preached that God is part of a Trinity, and did not believe in Jesus as their saviour. Their message was simple: there is one God and He alone deserves your worship. It doesn’t make sense that God sent Prophets for thousands of years with the same essential message, and then all of a sudden he says he is in a Trinity and that you must believe in Jesus to be saved.

            The truth is that Jesus preached the same message that the Prophets in the Old Testament preached. There is a passage in the Bible which really emphasises his core message. A man came to Jesus and asked ‘Which is the first commandment of all?’Jesus answered, ‘The first of all the commandments is Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one.”[Mark 12:28-29]. So the greatest commandment, the most important belief according to Jesus is that God is one. If Jesus was God he would have said ‘˜I am God, worship me’, but he didn’t. He merely repeated a verse from the Old Testament confirming that God is One.

            Some people claim that Jesus came to die for the sins of the world. But consider the following statement of Jesus: This is eternal life: to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you sent. I have glorified you on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do.[John 17:3-4]. Jesus said this before he was caught and taken to be crucified. It is clear from this verse that Jesus did not come to die for the sins of the world, as he finished the work God gave him before he was taken to be crucified.

            Also Jesus said ‘salvation is of the Jews’ [John 4:22]. So we don’t need to believe in the Trinity or that Jesus died for our sins to attain salvation since the Jews don’t have these beliefs.

            5. The Early Christians

            Historically there were many sects in early Christianity who had a range of beliefs regarding Jesus [1]. Some believed Jesus was God, others believed Jesus was not God but partly divine, and yet others believed he was a human being and nothing more. Trinitarian Christianity which is the belief that God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are one in three persons became the dominant sect of Christianity, once it was formalised as the state religion of the Roman Empire in the 4th Century. Christians who denied Jesus being God were persecuted by the Roman Authorities [2]. From this point onwards the Trinitarian belief became widespread amongst Christians. There were various movements in early Christianity which denied the Trinity, among the more well known of them is Adoptionism and Arianism.

            Dr Jerald Dirks who is an expert on early Christianity had this to say on the subject: Early Christianity was quite conflicted about the issue of the nature of Jesus. The various Adoptionist positions within early Christianity were numerous and at times dominate. One can even speculate that Arian and Nestorian Christianity might well be an extremely sizable source within Christianity today, if it were not for the fact that these two branches of Christianity, which were located primarily in the middle east and in North Africa were so similar to the Islamic teaching regarding the nature of Jesus that they quite naturally were absorbed into Islam at the beginning of the seventh century.’ [3]

            Since there were so many sects in early Christianity, each with different beliefs about Jesus and with their own versions of the Bible, which one can we say was following the true teachings of Jesus?

            It doesn’t make sense that God sends countless Prophets like Noah, Abraham and Moses to tell people to believe in one God, and then suddenly sends a radically different message of the Trinity which contradicts his previous Prophets teachings. It is clear that the sect of Christianity who believed Jesus to be a human Prophet and nothing more, were following the true teachings of Jesus. This is because their concept of God is the same as that which was taught by the Prophets in the Old Testament.

            Jesus in Islam

            The Islamic belief about Jesus demystifies for us who the real Jesus was. Jesus in Islam was an extraordinary individual, chosen by God as a Prophet and sent to the Jewish people. He never preached that he himself was God or the actual son of God. He was miraculously born without a father, and he performed many amazing miracles such as healing the blind and the lepers and raising the dead ‘“ all by God’s permission. Muslims believe that Jesus will return before the day of Judgement to bring justice and peace to the world. This Islamic belief about Jesus is similar to the belief of some of the early Christians. In the Quran, God addresses the Christians about Jesus in the following way:

            O People of the Book, do not commit excesses in your religion, and do not say anything about God except the truth: the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, was nothing more than a messenger of God, His word, directed to Mary and a spirit from Him. So believe in God and His Messengers and do not speak of a ‘˜Trinity”“ stop [this], that is better for you’“ God is only one God, He is far above having a son, everything in the heavens and earth belongs to Him and He is the best one to trust. [4:171]

            Since it has clearly been shown that Jesus is not God both according to the Bible and for historical and rational reasons ‘“ what is the next step for you?

            We invite you to look further and investigate Islam. Islam is not just another religion. It is the same message preached by Moses, Jesus and Abraham. Islam literally means ‘˜submission to God’ and it teaches us to have a direct relationship with God. It reminds us that since God created us, no one should be worshipped except God alone. It also teaches that God is nothing like a human being or like anything that we can imagine. The concept of God is summarised in the Quran as:

            Say, He is God, the One. God, the Absolute. He does not give birth, nor was He born, and there is nothing like Him*. [112:1-4]

            Becoming a Muslim is not changing or losing your Christian identity. But it’s going back to the original teachings of Jesus. Guidance ultimately comes from God. We ask God to guide us and you. May God’s peace and blessing be upon you for the rest of your days.

            *God is not male or female, the word ‘˜Him’ when used for God does not refer to gender

            The Bible denies the divinity of Jesus (pbuh) and being God and Son of God –

            1) None of the Bible’s Writers Believed That Jesus is God:

            Christians and Muslims both believe in Jesus, love him, and honor him. They are, however, divided over the question of his divinity.

            Fortunately, this difference can be resolved if we refer the question to both the Bible and the Quran, because, both the Bible and the Quran teach that Jesus is not God.

            It is clear enough to everyone that the Quran denies the divinity of Jesus, so we do not need to spend much time explaining that.

            On the other hand, many people misunderstand the Bible; they feel that the belief in Jesus as God is so widespread that it must have come from the Bible. This article shows quite conclusively that the Bible does not teach that.

            The Bible clearly teaches that Jesus is not God. In the Bible God is always someone else other than Jesus.

            Some will say that something Jesus said or something he did while on the earth proves that he is God. We will show that the disciples never came to the conclusion that Jesus is God. And those are people who lived and walked with Jesus and thus knew first hand what he said and did. Furthermore, we are told in the Acts of the Apostles in the Bible that the disciples were being guided by the Holy Spirit. If Jesus is God, surely they should know it. But they did not. They kept worshipping the one true God who was worshipped by Abraham, Moses, and Jesus (see Acts 3:13).

            All of the writers of the Bible believed that God was not Jesus. The idea that Jesus is God did not become part of Christian belief until after the Bible was written, and took many centuries to become part of the faith of Christians.

            Matthew, Mark, and Luke, authors of the first three Gospels, believed that Jesus was not God (see Mark 10:18 and Matthew 19:17). They believed that he was the son of God in the sense of a righteous person. Many others too, are similarly called sons of God (see Matthew 23:1-9).

            Paul, believed to be the author of some thirteen or fourteen letters in the Bible, also believed that Jesus is not God. For Paul, God first created Jesus, then used Jesus as the agent by which to create the rest of creation (see Colossians 1:15 and 1 Corinthians 8:6). Similar ideas are found in the letter to the Hebrews, and also in the Gospel and Letters of John composed some seventy years after Jesus. In all of these writings, however, Jesus is still a creature of God and is therefore forever subservient
            to God (see 1 Corinthians 15:28).

            Now, because Paul, John, and the author of Hebrews believed that Jesus was God’s first creature, some of what they wrote clearly show that Jesus was a pre-existent powerful being. This is often misunderstood to mean that he must have been God. But to say that Jesus was God is to go against what these very authors wrote. Although these authors had this later belief that Jesus is greater than all creatures, they also believed that he was still lesser than God. In fact, John quotes Jesus as saying: “…the Father is greater than I.” (John 14:28). And Paul declares that the head of every woman is her husband, the head of every man is Christ, and the head of Christ is God
            (see 1 Corinthians 11:3).

            Therefore, to find something in these writings and claim that these teach that Jesus is God is to misuse and misquote what those authors are saying. What they wrote must be understood in the context of their belief that Jesus is a creature of God as they have already clearly said.

            So we see then, that some of the later writers had a higher view of Jesus, but none of the writers of the Bible believed that Jesus is God. The Bible clearly teaches that there is only one true God, the one whom Jesus worshipped (see John 17: 3).

            In the rest of this article we will explore the Bible in more depth, and deal with the passages which are most often misquoted as proofs of Jesus’ divinity. We will show, with God’s help, that these do not mean what they are so often used to prove.

            2) Evidence From the Acts of the Apostles:

            Jesus performed many miraculous wonders, and he without doubt said a lot of wonderful things about himself. Some people use what he said and did as a proof that he was God. But his original disciples who lived and walked with him, and were eyewitnesses to what he said and did, never reached this conclusion.

            The Acts of the Apostles in the Bible details the activity of the disciples over a period of thirty years after Jesus was lifted up to heaven. Throughout this period they never refer to Jesus as God. They continually and consistently use the title God to refer to someone else other than Jesus.

            Peter stood up with the eleven disciples and addressed the crowd saying: “Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know.” (Acts 2:22).

            It was God, therefore, who did the miracles through Jesus to convince people that Jesus was backed by God. Peter did not see the miracles as proof that Jesus is God.

            In fact, the way Peter refers to God and to Jesus makes it clear that Jesus is not God. For he always turns the title God away from Jesus. Take the following references for example:

            “God has raised this Jesus…” (Acts 2:32)

            “God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.” (Acts 2:36)

            In both passages, the title God is turned away from Jesus. So why he did this, if Jesus was God?

            For Peter, Jesus was a servant of God. Peter said:
            “God raised up his servant…” (Acts 3:26). The title servant refers to Jesus. This is clear from a previous passage where Peter declared: “The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus.”(Acts 3:13).

            Peter must have known that Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob never spoke of a Triune God. They always spoke of God as the only God.
            Here, as in Matthew 12:18, Jesus is the servant of God. Matthew tells us that Jesus was the same servant of God spoken of in Isaiah 42:1. So, according to Matthew and Peter, Jesus is not God, but God’s servant. The Old Testament repeatedly says that God is alone (e.g. Isaiah 45:5).

            All of the disciples of Jesus held this view. In Acts 4:24 we are told that the believers prayed to God saying: “…they raised their voices together in prayer to God. ‘Sovereign Lord,’ they said, ‘you made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and everything in them.’” It is clear that the one they were praying to was not Jesus, because, two verses later, they referred to Jesus as “…your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed.” (Acts 4:27).

            If Jesus was God, his disciples should have said this clearly. Instead, they kept preaching that Jesus was God’s Christ. We are told in Acts: “Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Christ.” (Acts 5:42).

            The Greek word “Christ” is a human title. It means “Anointed.” If Jesus was God, why would the disciples continually refer to him with human titles like servant and Christ of God, and consistently use the title God for the one who raised Jesus? Did they fear men? No! They boldly preached the truth fearing neither imprisonment nor death. When they faced opposition from the authorities, Peter declared: “We must obey God rather than men! The God of our fathers raised Jesus…” (Acts 5:29-30).

            Were they lacking the Holy Spirit? No! They were supported by the Holy Spirit (see Acts 2:3, 4:8, and 5:32). They were simply teaching what they had learnt from Jesus — that Jesus was not God but, rather, God’s servant and Christ.

            The Quran confirms that Jesus was the Messiah (Christ), and that he was God’s servant (see the Holy Quran 3:45 and 19:30).

            3) Jesus is Not All-Powerful, and Not All-Knowing:

            Christians and Muslims agree that God is all-powerful and all-knowing. The Gospels show that Jesus was not all-powerful, and not all-knowing, since he had some limitations.

            Mark tells us in his gospel that Jesus was unable to do any powerful work in his hometown except few things: “He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them.” (Mark 6:5). Mark also tells us that when Jesus tried to heal a certain blind man, the man was not healed after the first attempt, and Jesus had to try a second time (see Mark 8:22-26).

            Therefore, although we hold a great love and respect for Jesus, we need to understand that he is not the all-powerful God.

            Mark’s Gospel also reveals that Jesus had limitations in his knowledge. In Mark 13:32, Jesus declared that he himself does not know when the last day will occur, but the Father alone knows that (see also Matthew 24:36).

            Therefore, Jesus could not have been the all-knowing God. Some will say that Jesus knew when the last day will occur, but he chose not to tell. But that complicates matters further. Jesus could have said that he knows but he does not wish to tell. Instead, he said that he does not know. We must believe him. Jesus does not lie at all.

            The Gospel of Luke also reveals that Jesus had limited knowledge. Luke says that Jesus increased in wisdom (Luke 2:52). In Hebrews too (Hebrews 5:8) we read that Jesus learned obedience. But God’s knowledge and wisdom is always perfect, and God does not learn new things. He knows everything always. So, if Jesus learned something new, that proves that he did not know everything before that, and thus he was not God.

            Another example for the limited knowledge of Jesus is the fig tree episode in the Gospels. Mark tells us as follows:“The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry. Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs.” (Mark 11:12-13).

            It is clear from these verses that the knowledge of Jesus was limited on two counts. First, he did not know that the tree had no fruit until he came to it. Second, he did not know that it was not the right season to expect figs on trees.

            Can he become God later? No! Because there is only one God, and He is God from everlasting to everlasting (see Psalms 90:2).

            Someone may say that Jesus was God but he took the form of a servant and therefore became limited. Well, that would mean that God changed. But God does not change. God said so according to Malachi 3:6.

            Jesus never was God, and never will be. In the Bible, God declares: “Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me.” (Isaiah 43:10).

            The Bible clearly shows that Jesus was not all-powerful and all-knowing as the true God should be.

            4) The Greatest Commandment in the Bible and the Quran:

            Some will say that this whole discussion over the divinity of Jesus is unnecessary. They say, the important thing is to accept Jesus as your personal savior. On the contrary, the Bible’s writers stressed that, in order to be saved, it is necessary to understand who exactly is God. Failure to understand this would be to violate the first and greatest of all the commandments in the Bible. This commandment was emphasized by Jesus, on whom be peace, when a teacher of the Law of Moses asked him: “‘Of all the commandments, which is the most important?’ ‘The most important one,’ answered Jesus, ‘is this: Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’” (Mark 12:28-30).

            Notice that Jesus was quoting the first commandment from the book of Deuteronomy 6:4-5. Jesus confirmed not only that this commandment is still valid, but also that it is the most important of all the commandments. If Jesus thought that he himself is God, why did not he say so? Instead, he stressed that God is one. The man who questioned Jesus understood this, and what the man says next makes it clear that God is not Jesus, for he said to Jesus: “‘Well said, teacher,’ the man replied. ‘You are
            right in saying that God is one and there is no other but him.’” (Mark 12:32).

            Now if Jesus was God, he would have told the man so. Instead, he let the man refer to God as someone other than Jesus, and he even saw that the man had spoken wisely:“When Jesus saw that he had answered wisely, he said to him, ‘You are not far from the kingdom of God.’”(Mark 12:34). If Jesus knew that God is a trinity, why did not he say so? Why did not he say that God is one in three, or three in one? Instead, he declared that God is one. True imitators of Jesus will imitate him also in this declaration of God’s oneness. They will not add the word three where Jesus never said it.

            Does salvation depend on this commandment? Yes, says the Bible! Jesus made this clear when another man approached Jesus to learn from him (see Mark 10:17-29). The man fell on his knees and said to Jesus: “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” Jesus replied: “Why do you call me good? No one is good — except God alone.” (Mark 10:17-18).

            By so saying, Jesus made a clear distinction between himself and God. Then he proceeded with the answer to the man’s question about how to get salvation. Jesus told him: “If you want to enter life, obey the commandments.” (Matthew 19:17, also see Mark 10:19).

            Remember that the most important of all the commandments, according to Jesus, is to know God as the only God. Jesus further emphasized this in the Gospel According to John. In John 17:1, Jesus lifted his eyes to heaven and prayed, addressing God as Father. Then in verse three, he said to God as follows: “Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” (John 17:3).

            This proves beyond doubt that if people want to get eternal life they must know that the One, whom Jesus was praying to, is the only true God, and they must know that Jesus was sent by the true God. Some say that the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Ghost is God. But Jesus said that the Father alone is the only true God. True followers of Jesus will follow him in this too.

            Jesus had said that his true followers are those who hold to his teachings. He said: “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.” (John 8:31).
            His teaching is that people must continue to keep the commandments, especially the first commandment which emphasizes that God is alone, and that God should be loved with all our hearts and all our strengths.

            We love Jesus, but we must not love him as God. Today many love Jesus more than they love God. This is because they see God as a vengeful person who wanted to exact a penalty from them, and they see Jesus as the savior who rescued them from the wrath of God. Yet God is our only savior. According to Isaiah 43:11, God said: “I, even I, am the LORD, and apart from me there is no savior.” Also God said according to Isaiah 45:21-22: “Was it not I, the LORD? And there is no God apart from me, a righteous God and a Savior; there is none but me. Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.”

            The Quran confirms the first commandment and addresses it to all humankind (see the Holy Quran 2:163). And God declares that true believers love Him more than anyone else or anything else (Quran 2:165).

            5) Paul Believed That Jesus is not God:

            Many people use Paul’s writings as proof that Jesus is God. But this is not fair to Paul, because Paul clearly believed that Jesus is not God. In his first letter to Timothy, Paul wrote: “I charge you, in the sight of God and Christ Jesus and the elect angels, to keep these instructions…” (1 Timothy 5:21).

            It is clear from this that the title God applies not to Christ Jesus, but to someone else. In the following chapter, he again differentiates between God and Jesus when he says:“In the sight of God, who gives life to everything, and of Christ Jesus, who while testifying before Pontius Pilate made the good confession…” (1 Timothy 6:13).

            Paul then went on to speak of the second appearance of Jesus: “the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which God will bring about in his own time.” (1 Timothy 6:14-15).

            Again, the title God is deliberately turned away from Jesus. Incidentally, many people think that when Jesus is called “Lord” in the Bible that this means “God.” But in the Bible this title means master or teacher, and it can be used for addressing humans (see 1 Peter 3:6).

            What is more important, however, is to notice what Paul said about God in the following passage, which clearly shows that Jesus is not God: “God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To him be honor and might forever.” (1 Timothy 6:15-16).

            Paul said that God alone is immortal. Immortal means he does not die. Check any dictionary. Now, anyone who believes that Jesus died cannot believe that Jesus is God. Such a belief would contradict what Paul said here. Furthermore, to say that God died is a blasphemy against God. Who would run the world if God died? Paul believed that God does not die.

            Paul also said in that passage that God dwells in unapproachable light — that no one has seen God or can see him. Paul knew that many thousands of people had seen Jesus. Yet Paul said that no one has seen God, because Paul was sure that Jesus is not God. This is why Paul went on teaching that Jesus was not God, but that he was the Christ (see Acts 9:22 and 18:5).

            When he was in Athens, Paul spoke of God as “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands.” (Acts 17:24). Then he identified Jesus as“the man he (i.e. God) has appointed.” (Acts 17:31).

            Clearly, for Paul, Jesus was not God, and he would be shocked to see his writings used for proving the opposite of what he believed. Paul even testified in court saying: “I admit that I worship the God of our fathers…” (Acts 24:14).

            He also said that Jesus is the servant of that God, for we read in Acts: “The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus.”(Acts 3:13).

            For Paul, the Father alone is God. Paul said that there is“one God and Father of all…” (Ephesians 4:6). Paul said again: “…for us there is but one God, the Father . . . and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ…” (1 Corinthians 8:6).

            Paul’s letter to the Philippians (Philippians 2:6-11) is often quoted as a proof that Jesus is God. But the very passage shows that Jesus is not God. This passage has to agree with Isaiah 45:22-24 where God said that every knee should bow to God, and every tongue should confess that righteousness and strength are in God alone. Paul was aware of this passage, for he quoted it in Romans 14:11. Knowing this, Paul declared: “I kneel before the Father.”(Ephesians 3:14).

            The letter to the Hebrews (Hebrews 1:6) says that the angels of God should worship the Son. But this passage depends on Deuteronomy 32:43, in the Septuagint version of the Old Testament. This phrase cannot be found in the Old Testament used by Christians today, and the Septuagint version is no longer considered valid by Christians. However, even the Septuagint version, does not say worship the Son. It says let the Angels of God worship God. The Bible insists that God alone is to be worshipped:“When the LORD made a covenant with the Israelites, he commanded them: ‘Do not worship any other gods or bow down to them, serve them or sacrifice to them. But the LORD, who brought you up out of Egypt with mighty power and outstretched arm, is the one you must worship. To him you shall bow down and to him offer sacrifices. You must always be careful to keep the decrees and ordinances, the
            laws and commands he wrote for you. Do not worship other gods. Do not forget the covenant I have made with you, and do not worship other gods. Rather, worship the LORD your God; it is he who will deliver you from the hand of all your enemies.’” (2 Kings 17:35-39).

            Jesus, on whom be peace, believed in this, for he also stressed it in Luke 4:8. And Jesus too fell on his face and worshipped God (see Matthew 26:39). Paul knew that Jesus worshipped God (see Hebrews 5:7). Paul taught that Jesus will remain forever subservient to God (see 1 Corinthians 15:28).

            6) Evidence from the Gospel of John:

            The Gospel of John, the fourth Gospel, was completed to its present form some seventy years after Jesus was raised up to heaven. This Gospel in its final form says one more thing about Jesus that was unknown from the previous three Gospels — that Jesus was the Word of God. John means that Jesus was God’s agent through whom God created everything else. This is often misunderstood to mean that Jesus was God Himself. But John was saying, as Paul had already said, that Jesus was God’s first creature. In the Book of Revelation in the Bible, we find that Jesus is: “the beginning of God’s creation” (Revelation 3:14, also see 1 Corinthians 8:6 and Colossians 1:15).

            Anyone who says that the Word of God is a person distinct from God must also admit that the Word was created, for the Word speaks in the Bible saying: “The LORD brought me forth as the first of his works…”(Proverbs 8:22).

            This Gospel, nevertheless, clearly teaches that Jesus is not God. If it did not continue this teaching, then it would contradict the other three Gospels and also the letters of Paul from which it is clearly established that Jesus is not God. We find here that Jesus was not co-equal with the Father, for Jesus said: “…the Father is greater than
            I.”(John 14:28).

            People forget this and they say that Jesus is equal to the Father. Whom should we believe — Jesus or the people? Muslims and Christians agree that God is self-existent. This means that He does not derive his existence from anyone. Yet John tells us that Jesus’ existence is caused by the Father. Jesus said in this Gospel: “…I live because of the Father…” (John 6:57).

            John tells us that Jesus cannot do anything by his own when he quotes Jesus as saying: “By myself I can do nothing…” (John 5:30). This agrees with what we learn about Jesus from other Gospels. In Mark, for example, we learn that Jesus performed miracles by a power which was not within his control. This is especially clear from an episode in which a woman is healed of her incurable bleeding. The woman came up behind him and touched his cloak, and she was immediately healed. But Jesus had no idea who touched him. Mark describes Jesus’ actions thus:“At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, ‘Who touched my clothes?’” (Mark 5:30). His disciples could not provide a satisfactory answer, so Mark tells us: “Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it.” (Mark
            5:32). This shows that the power that healed the woman was not within Jesus’ control. He knew that the power had gone out of him, but he did not know where it went. Some other intelligent being had to guide that power to the woman who needed to be healed. God was that intelligent being.

            It is no wonder, then, that in Acts of the Apostles we read that it was God who did the miracles through Jesus (Acts 2:22).

            God did extraordinary miracles through others too, but that does not make the others God (see Acts 19:11). Why, then, is Jesus taken for God? Even when Jesus raised his friend Lazarus from the dead, he had to ask God to do it. Lazarus’ sister, Martha, knew this, for she said to Jesus: “I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask.” (John 11:22).

            Martha knew that Jesus was not God, and John who reported this with approval knew it also. Jesus had a God, for when he was about to ascend to heaven, he said: “I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.” (John 20:17).

            John was sure that no one had seen God, although he knew that many people had seen Jesus (see John 1:18 and 1 John 4:12). In fact Jesus himself told the crowds, that they have never seen the Father, nor have they heard the Father’s voice (John 5:37). Notice that if Jesus was the Father, his statement here would be false. Who is the only God in John’s Gospel? The Father alone.

            Jesus testified this when he declared that the God of the Jews is the Father (John 8:54). Jesus too confirmed that the Father alone is the only true God (see John 17:1-3). And Jesus said to his enemies: “…you are determined to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God.” (John 8:40). According to John, therefore, Jesus was not God, and nothing John wrote should be taken as proof that he was God — unless one wishes to disagree with John.

            7) God and Jesus Are Two Separate Beings:

            Many people use certain verses of the Bible as proof that Jesus is God. However, all of these verses, when understood in context, prove the opposite!

            For example, in Matthew 9:2, Jesus said to a certain man, “Take heart, son; your sins are forgiven.” Because of this, some say that Jesus must be God since only God can forgive sins. However, if you are willing to read just a few verses further, you will find that the people “…praised God, who had given such authority to men.” (Matthew 9:8). This shows that the people knew, and Matthew agrees, that Jesus is not the only man
            to receive such authority from God.

            Jesus himself emphasized that he does not speak on his own authority (John 14:10) and he does nothing on his own authority, but he speaks only what the Father has taught him (John 8:28). What Jesus did here was as follows. Jesus announced to the man the knowledge Jesus received from God that God had forgiven the man.

            Notice that Jesus did not say, “I forgive your sins,” but rather, “your sins are forgiven,” implying, as this would to his Jewish listeners, that God had forgiven the man. Jesus, then, did not have the power to forgive sins, and in that very episode he called himself “the Son of Man”(Matthew 9:6).

            John 10:30 is often used as proof that Jesus is God because Jesus said, “I and the father are one.” But, if you read the next six verses, you will find Jesus explaining that his enemies were wrong to think that he was claiming to be God. What Jesus obviously means here is that he is one with the Father in purpose. Jesus also prayed that his disciples should be one just as Jesus and the Father are one. Obviously, he was not praying that all his disciples should somehow merge into one individual (see John 17:11 and 22). And when Luke reports that the disciples were all one, Luke does not mean that they became one single human being, but that they shared a common purpose although they were separate beings (see Acts 4:32). In terms of essence, Jesus and the Father are two, for Jesus said they are two witnesses (John 8:14-18).
            They have to be two, since one is greater than the other (see John 14:28). When Jesus prayed to be saved from the cross, he said: “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” (Luke 22:42).

            This shows that they had two separate wills, although Jesus submitted his will to the will of the Father. Two wills mean two separate individuals.

            Furthermore, Jesus is reported to have said: “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Matthew 27:46). If one of them forsook the other, then they must be two separate entities.

            Again, Jesus is reported to have said: “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” (Luke 23:46). If the spirit of one can be placed into the hands of another, they must be two separate beings.

            In all of these instances, Jesus is clearly subordinate to the Father. When Jesus knelt down and prayed he obviously was not praying to himself (see Luke 22:41). He was praying to his God.

            Throughout the New Testament, the Father alone is called God. In fact, the titles “Father” and “God” are used to designate one individual, not three, and never Jesus. This is also clear from the fact that Matthew substituted the title “Father” in the place of the title “God” in at least two places in his Gospel (compare Matthew 10:29 with Luke 12:6, and Matthew 12:50 with Mark 3:35). If Matthew is right in doing so, then the Father alone is God.

            Was Jesus the Father? No! Because Jesus said: “And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven.” (Matthew 23:9). So Jesus is not the Father, since Jesus was standing on the earth when he said this.

            The Quran seeks to bring people back to the true faith that was taught by Jesus, and by his true disciples who continued in his teaching. That teaching emphasized a continued commitment to the first commandment that God is alone. In the Quran, God directs Muslims to call readers of the Bible back to that true faith. God have said in the Quran:

            Say: “O people of the Book (Christians and Jews)!
            Come to a word that is just between us and you: that we shall worship none but God, and that we shall associate no partners with Him, and that none of us shall take others as lords beside God.” (Quran, 3:64)

        The historical image of the 3000 years of hidden alliance between the Persian Empire and the Jews as well as the strong relationship between Iran and Israel dating as far back as Israel’s inception.

        Israeli authorities who have openly admitted Iran is not a threat to them but only a threat to their Arab neighbours whom Israel seeks open recognition from.

        Israel and Iran have been allies since Israel’s inception

        Israel backed Iran in the Iraq-Iran war until both parties lost because Israel feared Iraq

        High authorities in Israel have openly admitted Iran is not a threat to Israel, Iraq was the only threat to Israel’s existence

        Israel paved the way for US-Iran relations – Israel propagated the fictitious threat of Iran out of fear their role between the US-Iran marriage was no longer needed, Israelis also propagated this threat so Arabs who feared Iranian imperialism would openly recognise the existence of their bastard state

        During UN sanctions on Iran, Israel purchased most of its over 75% of its oil and pistachio nuts from Iran via third party country to ensure Iran’s economy survived all hardships – Israel also provided ongoing weapon supplies to Iran well before the Iraq-Iran war

        Israel and Iran were both covertly responsible for the Kurdish uprisings against Saddam backed by the secretly Jewish Kurdish Barzani clan – the creation of an independent Kurdish state would perfectly work in Israel’s best interests

        Iran often calls Israel a fabricated entity with no legitimacy and no future in the Middle East – behind the threats and slogans is millennia of Iranian-Jewish friendship. Two hundred thousand Iranian Jews and their descendents live in Israel. Some of them belong to the highest levels of the Israeli political elite. Past Israeli president Moshe Katsav, former deputy prime minister and chief of the IDF Shaul Mofaz were both born in Iran. Twenty-five thousand Jews reside in Iran. As long as Iranian Jews oppose Zionism and the Israeli state they would be protected in Iran and given a great deal of religious freedom – Khomeini also issued a religious fatwa (verdict) declaring Jews were to be protected.

        Israel and Iran have always viewed each other as allies – an Israeli expert on Iran even described Arabs as “hard heads” who would operate along the same narrow-minded unsophisticated principles. Iranians are much harder to characterise for Israelis because they are “so much like us.” An Israeli historian even admitted “Persians and Israelis view each other as “equals” in the Middle East region, after all Iran had the mighty Persian Empire greatly respected by Israel, while both Israelis and Persians view Arabs as uncivilised savages who are inferior to them.” Aside from the Turks; Israel and Iran are united on the basis they both feel isolated and alienated from their Arab neighbours in the Middle East. Clyde Haberman of the New York Times wrote:

        “For years, Israel remained willing to do business with Iran, even though the mullahs in Tehran were screaming for an end to the ‘Zionist entity’.”

        At Israel’s inception Iran refused to publicly recognise Israel because of the anticipated Arab reaction – the Shah of Iran covertly supported Israel because he knew the creation of a non-Arab, pro-Western state in MENA could improve Iran’s security by absorbing attention and resources of the Arab states. Iran helped cultivate stronger Israeli-Iranian relations when they provided Iraqi Jews (whose neighbourhoods in Iraq were targeted by Israelis) with a safe passage way into Israel. In exchange for their support, Israel provided Iran with highly valued irrigation technologies which helped Iran’s economic growth. The Shah of Iran even ordered his ministries to hire Israeli consultants to cement the relationship with Israel. Former Israeli labour minister, Arieh Eliav said Israel trained over ten thousand Iranian agricultural experts.

        Iran kept most of its collaborations with Israel secret. To minimise the visibility of his dealings with Israel, the Shah had his interactions with Israel handled by Iran’s secret police – in 1957 the Iranian intelligence service established relations with the Israeli Mossad. The Iranian military and secret police operatives were secretly trained by Israeli intelligence officers in both Iran and Israel. Israel also trained four hundred Iranian pilots, paratroopers and artillery men and sold Iran high-tech military equipment. One Iranian ambassador even admitted the Mossad trained Iranians in torture and investigative interrogation methods as well.

        Whenever Iranians visit Israel, they visited Iran via Turkey without having their passports stamped upon arrival in Israel. To this day, Iranian Jews travel to Israel the same way – with the Iranian government’s approval. The deployment of Iranian diplomats in Israel was also kept secret. During the 70s six Iranian diplomats manned their Iranian secret mission in Israel but their records indicated that they were serving in Switzerland. The Iranian embassy in Israel was referred to as “Bern 2” in Iranian Foreign Ministry documents.

        Tensions between Arabs and Persians have deep historical roots. The scars of the Arab invasion in the 7th century and the Islamisation of Iran are still vivid; Iranians continue to pride themselves on successfully resisting the Arabisation of Iran. While Iran accepted Islam, much of Iran’s ethnic and cultural identity remained the same. Iran became an Islamic state, but not an Arab state which caused a lot of resentment from its Arab neighbours. Arabs believed themselves to be ethnically superior to Iranians; Persian antagonism is rooted in a sense of cultural supremacy.

        The Shah attempted to improve relations with Arabs by providing them with generous financial aid. In 1974 alone, the Shah granted $850 million in loans to Egypt, $7.4 million to Jordan, $30 million to Morocco and $150 million to Syria. “The Syrians needed (our oil) badly. We were actually buying their friendship with these kind of bribes. The Shah knew well we were not going to be good friends, but this could help” said Mehdi Ehsassi former Iranian deputy UN ambassador. Iran provided Sadat of Egypt a large shipment of oil, Iran also extended medical aide to Arabs and provided Saudi Arabia with Iranian pilots. Yet, Iran refused to join the Arab oil embargo against Israel and continued to supply Israel with oil throughout the conflict.

        Iraq was the “wild card” in the Israeli threat. Israel’s high ranking military man Lieutenant General Yitzhak Segev told Iran “Iraq was the real enemy of Israel”. The Iraqi threat to Israel and Iran made Israeli-Iranian cooperation more important. Israel has always supported Kurdish sovereignty which had long term visions well-beyond weakening Baghdad. Israel and Iran told Barzani (this clan is known by many Kurds as secretly Jewish) he could count on unconditional support from the Jewish state. The Mossad then trained many Kurdish fighters – Israel believed their interest with the Kurds was more important than the Iranians. Dressed in Kurdish traditional garments, the Iranian secret agency crossed the Iraqi border. Israel trained funded and armed Barzani’s forces to stage a rebellion against the Iraqi army. Iranian cooperation enabled a steady flow of Israeli arms, doctors and medical supplies. The Kurds were then defeated by the Iraqi army. The Shah told Iranian press agency

        “without our support they (the Kurds) wouldn’t last ten days against the Iraqis.”

        Iraq obtained Scud ballistic missiles, during the 70s Iraqi armament was increasing which led to one of the most secretive and controversial collaborations between Israel and Iran – Project Flower. Weizman emphasised to Iran Israel’s worries about the combined armies of Egypt, Syria and Iraq, he told Iran

        “The last thing we want and the last thing we need is war. You must remember that Egypt, Jordan, Syria are all around us, they possess over 5,000 tanks and over 1,300 fighting airplanes. Iraq can move in forty-eight hours with quite a force – I don’t want to go into strategy but you only have to look at the map and see what happens to a small country like ours if we go all the way back to the old borders without real security.”

        When Saddam invaded Iran – Iran appeared weak and an Iraqi victory would leave Israel in a far more vulnerable position. Although Iraq was flirting with the US, Iraq’s hostility towards Israel was of great concern to the Israelis – which is why Israel did all they could to ensure Iran won the war against Iraq. Former head of the Israeli Foreign Ministry, David Kimche even said

        “Stopping Saddam was paramount, and if that meant going along with the request for arms by the Iranians that could prevent an Iraqi victory so be it. Our big hope was that the two sides would weaken each other to such an extent neither of them would be a threat to us.”

        In 1983, Reagen sent a secret Israeli officer to Iraqi Foreign Minister Tariq Aziz offering to assist Iraq; however Aziz declined Israel’s proposition. Iraq refused to improve its relations with Israel which alarmed Israelis. Hassan Karoubi, a close friend of Khomeini’s favoured improved relations with Washington. Israel’s foreign minister agreed to Israel would serve as bridge between Iran and the West. Yitzhak Rabin even admitted

        “Iran is Israel’s best friend and we do not intend to change our position in relation to Tehran, because Khomeini’s regime will not last forever.”

        Iran needed its relationship with Israel as a platform to control and balance the Arab threat. Iran decided to befriend the Arabs via the anti-Israeli card to win acceptance by the Arabs. Israel was no threat to Iran; the religious leaders in Tehran believed they couldn’t win regional leadership without taking a stance against Israel. Iranians insist they never approached Israel for arms, all Israeli weapons possessed by Iran they claim came from black markets.

        “Iraq has built a very large army with over fifty divisions, the question remains whether they will be tempted to recapture its standing with the Arab world by attacking Israel” said Shimon Peres.

        The Syrian threat to Israel was non-existent. Hezbollah controlled by Iran was not a threat to Israel. Iraq was the biggest blockage against Iranian fundamentalist danger in the region. In a public interview on Israeli television, Rabin’s advisor said

        “Israel’s real enemy was Iraq and other Arab states, whereas Iran had every reason to be Israel’s friend. Iraq is getting stronger every day by acquiring chemical and non-conventional arms that threaten us. There is a reason to see to it that Iran can continue confronting and diverging the Iraqi forces…. Beyond that Iran has oil, Iran has Jews and all these are good reasons for renewal of connections with Iran, without any relation to the governing regime.”

        Even when Saddam hurled thirty-four Scud missiles at Tel Aviv and other Israeli cities, in an obvious attempt to lure Israel into the war, the United States told Israel “in the strongest possible words” that it need to keep itself out of Israeli retaliation because that would collapse Washington’s anti-Iraq alliance. Iran’s rearmament throughout the 1990s was primarily aimed at containing the Iraqi threat. Saddam’s invasion of Kuwait collapsed the threat Iraq posed to Israel and Iran, because Iraq was weakened and Pan-Arabism had lost its legitimacy.

        Once Iran had become a powerful player in the Middle East – some Israelis believed Iran’s power had become a threat to Israel. Later on Israeli head of military intelligence General Uri Saguy stated publicly that “Iran wasn’t a threat because its military program was aimed at its immediate Arab neighbours and not Israel.” Iran’s ambassador to UNESCO met with Israeli high-ranking Rabbi and reassured him

        “Iran is not Iraq and would never attack Israel.”

        Israel needed to paint Iran as a new bogey man by propagating exaggerated power of Iran’s military. This way the Arabs would be more inclined to make peace with Israel because of the threat of Iran’s fundamentalist government. Iran intensified its efforts to overcome differences with radical Palestinian groups to create a marriage of convenience between Iran and Islamic jihad.

        On one hand Israel was publicly working against Iran via the US and beneath the veil building a bridge which would later lead to strong US-Iranian relations that would eventually be strengthened by the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

        Iran and Israel are allies, yet everybody claims Iran is the key ‘resistance axis’ in the region seeking to liberate Palestine from the Israeli occupation.

        Palestinians need to know nobody is going to liberate or save them, only they can save themselves – and their “cause” needs to be recognised globally as a humanitarian struggle.

        Do you think after all these years of long relations between Israel and Iran their relationship would suddenly be thrown into the sea for a Palestinian cause nobody really cares about just like that? It doesn’t matter what position people take in the Middle East, revolutions are infiltrated, politicians are bribed and blackmailed and ultimately everyone whose still breathing in the game of mines is only there either because they are secretly allied with Israel or Israel needs them to carry on playing the game. Iraq was destroyed for a lost non-existent, unworthy cause – the Arab cause… and all for nothing, everybody abandoned Iraq and walked out on her and that’s the way it’s supposed to be in the game of “survival of the fittest”. It doesn’t matter if you play the game dirty or clean, those who play clean always lose, and those who play dirty will be granted victory by the people who call the shots.

        Zionist, Shiites, Neocons, and their Allies: A Treacherous Alliance

        The world has been programmed to fear Islam – Islam is often painted by right-wing neoconservatives as a religion that will never integrate a primitive religion that seeks to rob individuals of their freedoms and dominate the world. Muslims are often led to believe that if Shariah law is enforced upon mankind the world will usher into a golden age, they believe the West doesn’t want Islam because of its complete and utter remedies to society’s social ills. For the last 20 years or more, humanity has been continuously sold Samuel Huntington’s lie about the so-called “Clash of Civilisations” which is often used to defend right-wing, anti-Muslim mass immigration bigots. Islamists are portrayed as a threat to national security, national sovereignty and the safety of civilians – both Muslim and Non-Muslim. Many Muslims and Non-Muslims are led to believe political Islamic movements are the biggest threat and main opposition to Western imperialists. Unfortunately, people only see what is in front of them, nobody reads between the lines anymore, people only scratches the surface and the hidden historical connections between Islam and the West upon Islam’s inception until now are either unseen or completely dismissed altogether. Political Islam and Islamists are in fact the biggest modern day vehicles for Western imperialism and neo-colonialism.

        If you connect the dots between high profile, historical Islamic political and religious figures who worked hand in hand with Zionists and the West to create what is now the so-called modern threat of Islamism which worries Westerners and triggers right-wing groups intensely. I strongly recommend reading this book titled “Terrorism and the Illuminati: A Three Thousand Year History” by David Livingstone.

        Iran’s secret alliance with Israel, this book supports everything people have been saying about the Middle East being no different than a game of minesweeper – Israel’s mines are everywhere, in movements, in religious authority figures, in ruling elite Muslim (or secretly Jewish) bloodlines, in political positions of power… nothing is left untouched or not infiltrated – everybody is playing for the same team – the only difference is ideologies are made to look as though they oppose each other and even though they do, ultimately they all work for the same interests despite what their followers are led to believe.

        There were secret alliances between the Crusades, Knights Templar and off-shoot Shiite sect Ismailis which exchanged various occult traditions.

        The Persian royal family intermarried with Alexander the Great and Herod the Great, these intermarried families were responsible for creating the leading mystery school known as “The Mysteries of Mithras” which later merged with the Christian movement to create what is now known as the Catholic Church. The Mysteries of Mithras movement introduced humanity to the occult arts including astrology, magic and alchemy. The cult today now known as the Kabbalah was created by Jews who refused to remove Pagan influences from their religion by adopting Babylonian magic knowing it was forbidden by the God of Israel – they instead chose to honour Lucifer. They kept their apostasy hidden by disguising their hidden faith as religious interpretation.

        Zoroastrianism was originally monotheistic which was quickly corrupted by the Magi (the Persian priests) who infused Babylonian elements to it. Compulsory schooling was enforced by the ruling elite in order to separate children from their parents by indoctrinating them with ideals of the state. The original Mysteries of Mithras were the first families to ultimately produce the ruling elite bloodlines – they believed they were superior to everybody else because of their intermarriage to other multi-dimensional beings. The cult of the Roman Empire produced by the Mysteries of Mithras then penetrated the Islamic world via the off-shoot Shiite sect known as the Ismailis who later created the first network of Islamic terrorism known as the Assassins. An article published in the American Journal of Human Genetics revealed the Hebrew University of Israel revealed Jews have a closer genetic relationship to populations in the northern Mediterranean, including Kurds, Anatolian Turks and Armenians more than Arabs and Bedouins.

        Islam was subverted through the same occult influences from a community in Harran, southeast Turkey known as the Sabians. It was through their influence the most notorious of radical Islamic groups, the Assassins later imported occult tradition via the Knights Templar during the Crusades to the West. The Sabians were translators and astrologers who diffused the mystical teachings to the Islamic world later creating what is now known as Sufism. The Shiite Muslims were split into two main groups, the majority following the Twelve Imams known as the Twelvers and Jafar’s followers who remained loyal to his son Ismail who later became known as the Ismailis. The Templars grew powerful, Jerusalem fell back into Muslim hands, and nearly all Crusader holdings were in Arab control. The Templars established Cyprus as their new headquarters – they were involved in secret pacts with the Muslims forging alliances with them to establish connections with the Ismailis. The Templars were charged with practicing magic and believed by most to have been disbanded – they later formed the Freemasons.

        The Illuminati created the Egyptian Rite Freemasonry and allied themselves to the secret societies of Egypt to produce the Ismaili “Grand lodge” of Fatimid times to produce Islamic fundamentalism. The relationship between European Occultists and their brethren in Egypt opened up the opportunity to create three world wards of which the last would be against Islam.

        WWI – to enable the Illuminati to overthrow the Tzars in Russia and create stronghold of atheistic-communism; Communism was created to destroy other governments and weaken religions.

        WWII – to emphasise the differences between fascism and political Zionism; Nazism was created to be destroyed to give rise to political Zionism and establish the state of Israel.

        WWIII – to emphasise difference between political Zionists and Muslim world both will destroy each other divided against each other forced to fight themselves into a complete state of exhaustion physically, mentally, spiritually and economically.

        The monopoly was achieved by the Rockefellers, Rothschilds and the Iranians would play a central role in the Illuminati conspiracy to gain control of oil, and through the accumulation of wealth fund the spread of deviant interpretations of Islam and finance Islamic terrorism. The British Oxford movement in Egypt later created a reformed Islamic movement later known as Khawarijism which would be later used as a pretext for Western invasion to safeguard oil. The Iranians were employed to protect Britain’s growing interest of the Suez Canal which would become crucial for oil shipments to Europe and elsewhere. Jamal ud Din Al-Afghani was the founder of the Khawariji movement; he was guided by British and cult specialists. The Khawariji movement became allied with the Shiites of Iran through Freemason, Mohammed Rashid Rida who later led the movement.

        The Nazis and the Shiites worked together to revive ancient mind-control tactics of the Ismailis who would later be known as terrorist. The organisation was later named the Muslim Brotherhood who would use Islam only to deceive the public. Robert Dreyfuss who was held hostage by Ayatollah Khomeini professed:

        “The Muslim Brotherhood is a London creation, forged as the standard-bearer of an ancient, anti-religious (Pagan) heresy that has plagued Islam since the establishment of the Muslim community by the Prophet Muhammad. Representing organised Islamic fundamentalism, the organisation called the Muslim Brotherhood was founded in Egypt in 1929 by the British agent Hassan al-Banna a sufi mystic. Today, the Muslim Brotherhood is the umbrella under which a host of fundamentalist Sufi, Khawarij and radical Shiite brotherhoods and societies flourish.”

        When Hitler came to power in the 1930s he and Nazi intelligence made contact with Banna in order to collaborate – Banna was a devout admirer of Hitler. Nazi Military intelligence provided information on the British to work covertly to undermine British control in Egypt. When Abdul Nasser threatened to nationalise the Suez Canal, the Rothschilds employed their assassins from the Muslim Brotherhood against him.

        One British agent even admitted “The Muslim Brotherhood was a silent ally that provided a cheap no-American causalities way to do our dirty work in Yemen, Afghanistan and plenty of other places” Robert Dreyfuss even clarified

        “The real Muslim Shiite-Khawarij Brothers are those whose hands are never dirtied with the business of killing and burning. They are the secretive bankers and financiers who stand behind the curtain, the members of the old Arab, Turkish or Persian families who genealogy places them in the oligarchial elite, with smooth business and intelligence associations to the European black nobility and especially to the British oligarchy. The Muslim Brotherhood is money. Together, the Brotherhood probably controls several tens of billions of dollars in immediate liquid assets, and controls billions more in day-to-day business operations in everything from oil trade and banking, to drug running, illegal arms merchandising, gold and diamond smuggling. By allying with the Muslim Brotherhood, the Anglo-Americans and worldwide financial empire that extends from numbered Swiss bank accounts to offshore havens in Dubai, Kuwait and Hong Kong.”

        No Islamist movement is real – People have been saying that for years now. A real Islamist movement would not have any kind of alliance with the West, but these facts above prove the opposite otherwise. Islamism is not a threat to the West; it’s only incited as a threat in order to create instability, paranoia and chaos among citizens who feel threatened by an “invasive species” who seek to reform their Western-liberal-democratic values. The alliance between Shiite-Khawarij and the West has revealed itself in the past couple of decades or so, but nonetheless, many naive Muslims and Non-Muslims still believe

        Shiite-Khawarij have their best interest at heart and aspire to use the divine doctrine of God to create a utopia which the West rejects.

        People need to dig deeper – what you see in front of you is far from the truth, but if you seek the truth eventually you will find it. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to enlighten people about these inconvenient truths which often is overshadowed by silence and mass ignorance of people. At the end of the day, some people will never live to uncover the truth, others will resist the truth to protect their beliefs and few will uncover the truth and be shockingly disappointed. Lesson here, never believe anybody who claims to be something they’re not, never have faith in a group of people who could easily deceive you by telling you one thing and leading you to believe another.

          When that monkey akhmadnejew told the world that Iran want to wipe out Israel from the Map , the whole world perceived this message is coming from the Muslims. This he demonized Islam. Akhmadnejad is a Jew who “converted” to Islam. We can find many such Jew now a days who “recently” convert and behead or blow up something. for Instance few days before a “recently” converted Muslim (A former zionist Jew) attacked another Zionist Jew in Canadian parliament and supposedly killed him. We didnt see the dead body yet. Surprisingly that same Al-Qaeda/ISIS is claiming responsibility for this attack in their official newspaper Al-Dabique! You can see the connection.

        Albert Pike:

        “The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the “agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion. We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer (Dajjal/Shia Mahdi/Anti-Christ), brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.”

          Iran is working for them as we see how Iran who doesnt share any border with Israel become a self appointed guardian of the Muslims in Palestine. If we read their shit religious book we find that they teach their people to hate the sunnis, they even preach that killing a sunni and rob their property is permissible. These very same shit invaded Lebanon Iraq Palestine Syria in the name of attacking Israel. But they help Israel in attacking the sunnis.

        Nathan Lean’s book, “The Islamophobia Industry: How the Right Manufactures Fear of Muslims”, is a compact and punchy look at this industry stretching across continents that has sowed hatred of Muslims into the fabric of Western society and World alike.

        *Islamophobia is a multi-million dollar industry*

        Jumping from North America to Israel to Europe, Lean traces the arc of the Islamophobic sentiment that has exploded in the West. The foreword from scholar on Islam John Esposito lays out the importance of Lean’s work: “It exposes the multi-million dollar cottage industry of fear mongers and the network of funders and organizations that support and perpetuate bigotry, xenophobia, and racism, and produce a climate of fear that sustains a threatening social cancer.”

        But by far the most important contribution Lean makes is his unmasking of the bigots who have infused American politics with virulent anti-Muslim sentiment. Lean zeroes in on a number of high-profile episodes and figures to make his points, from the pro-settler Clarion Fund’s distribution of an anti-Muslim film to the 2010 Values Voter summit to Anders Behring Breivik’s killing spree in Norway. Lean points to an “industry” of hate mongers that have gone to “great lengths to sell its message to the public.” The difference, though, between this industry and others is that “in many cases the very networks that spread their products are themselves participants in the ruse to whip up public fear of Muslims….It is a relationship of mutual benefit, where ideologies and political proclivities converge to advance the same agenda.”

        The most important nodes in this industry are the online peddlers of hate. The author particularly focuses on Pamela Geller, the blogger at the front of the network of Islamophobes in the U.S. You can see Geller’s fingerprints in many of the public battles over Islam in this country, most prominently the ginned-up hysteria over the Park 51 Islamic center. Geller is in the spotlight for a series of anti-Muslim ads she has put up in New York, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.–with more on the way. She has used her celebrity, boosted by Fox News (a principal player in the Islamophobia industry), to create cross-continental activist networks against Islam. Robert Spencer, Geller’s partner in crime, is also a focus of Lean’s. “People such as Robert Spencer, Daniel Pipes, or Martin Kramer, all online Islamophobes, spread each others’ postings and write-ups to their own audience,” writes Lean. “With each new click of the mouse, the story grows.”

        But the Islamophobia industry does not just exist in the fever swamps of the online world. There’s real on the ground work being done. And there are disparate players in this industry. They come, principally, from right-wing Zionism and evangelical Christianity, uniting to form a Judeo-Christian front in their battle against Islam. Their funders, too, come from these worlds–though the right-wing Zionist world has fueled the majority of anti-Muslim activists.

        Right-wing Christian ideology places Muslims beyond the pale. “The idea that Muslims may also be in possession of God’s revelation and truth, is not only unacceptable, it is an offense so blasphemous that it must be stopped,” Lean notes. Evangelical Christians have actively pushed their ideas about Islam into the mainstream. The Christian conservative has also spread panic about Sharia law taking over the West. Many Christian conservatives are also, of course, Christian Zionists who see Israel as the fulfillment of biblical prophecy that will continue until the Messiah comes down again.

        It is this Christian Zionism that closely binds right-wing evangelicals with strong supporters of the Jewish state. The Zionists who spread anti-Muslim bigotry can be placed in three camps, according to Lean: religious (Jewish) Zionism, Christian Zionism and political Zionism. “For Religious Zionists, prophecy is the main driver of their Islamophobic fervor. For them, Palestinians are not just unbidden inhabitants; they are not just Arabs in Jewish lands. They are not just Muslims, even. They are non-Jews–outsiders cut from a different cloth–and God’s commandments regarding them are quite clear,” he writes. And there is the political Zionism that sheds religious language but is still hostile towards Muslims. As Max Blumenthal wrote, these figures, some of whom are neoconservatives, believe that “the Jewish state [is] a Middle Eastern Fort Apache on the front lines of the Global War on Terror.”

        Besides that oversight, though, Lean’s “The Islamophobia Industry” is a vital contribution to the still-growing body of literature on anti-Muslim sentiment in the world. If you want to understand the genesis of the right’s toxic Islamophobia and how it has spread, pick up Lean’s book. You will really understand how Islamophobia is perpetuated to produce a climate of fear that sustains a threatening social cancer against mankind and peace.

    Israel vs Iran: The Great Bluff against Muslims / Luciferianism and Freemasonry in Shi*ism / Pyramids and Masonic Symbolism all over Iran – videos and website

    Unraveling Mystery Behind building of the Pyramids in Shi*ism

    http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=QTUnkPc_yKI

    After watching the video with fairy tales and lies regarding the importance of pyramids in Shi*ism, then see how pyramids are all over Iran including mosques and parliament. This is how the Masonic Shi* Ayatoilets trick the naive Shi*s in believing and following Luciferianism and Freemasonry in the name of Islam.

    Shiite Iran is the operator of many such evil entities beside the “Daesh”. They created “Daesh” to fulfill their prophesy and belief that “Daesh” will aid in the imminent reappearance of Shiite Mahdi. It makes perfect sense if you analyze their prophesy and belief, and to understand the real reason behind their (Daesh) creation beside of course their (Shiite Iran) dream of Shiite crescent, political power, and complete hegemony!

    But top of all her creations is “Halesh”!

    – “Halesh: Iran’s Shi* Party of Satan in Lebanon (HezbuShaitan)”

    – “Halesh: Iran’s Shi* Party of Satan in Yemen”

    – “Halesh: Iran’s Shi* Party of Satan in Bahrain”

    – “Halesh: Iran’s Shi* Party of Satan in Iraq”

    – “Halesh: Iran’s Shi* Party of Satan in Sham”.

    Their created and operated “Halesh” are everywhere creating chaos and havoc. Both “Halesh” and “Daesh” are the evil horns of the Satanic Shi* Iran!

    In their Shi* belief, the radical Sunnis (Daesh) will conquer Syria for a short period of time and then Iranian forces will intervene on their way to destroying Israel.

    “Halesh” leader Hassan Nasrallah is, like Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei, “known for being a strong believer” in the Shi* prophecy that Iran will lead an End Times war against Islam’s enemies. At that time, the Shi* Mahdi will “reappear” and defeat the infidel.

    Iran and Hezbollah rely upon a book of prophecies called “Al-Jafr” to guide them. It was passed down to Jafar al-Sadiq, for whom the Jafari school of Shi* jurisprudence is named after. Teachers of this book say that the Syrian leader will be killed in a civil war during the End Times.

    A Sunni leader (Daesh) will take over Syria and persecute Shiites, Sunnis, Allawites, and Christians. The persecution will continue until an Iranian army invades Syria via Iraq, killing this Sunni (Daesh) leader on the way to capturing Jerusalem. Once Jerusalem is taken, the Shi* Mahdi will appear.

    Interestingly, in a modern context, this means that “Halesh” (HizbuShaitan) is fighting to preserve the regime of a man (Bashar Assad) that they believe will be killed.

    Keep in mind, the Jafari school of jurisprudence is mainstream Shi* doctrine. There’s bound to be disagreement over the interpretation of prophecy, but these are not the beliefs of an isolated cult. In July 2010, a senior Iranian cleric said that Khamenei told his inner circle that he had met with the Shi* Mahdi, who promised to “reappear” during his lifetime.

    A very similar eschatological viewpoint is articulated in a 2011 documentary produced by the office of then-President Ahmadinejad. The film, titled The Coming is Upon Us, does not predict a Syrian civil war but shares many of the same details.

    A critical point of convergence between the two sources is about Saudi Arabia’s role in prophecy. Both agree that the death of Saudi King Abdullah will be a major trigger. In fact, this event is so central to the Iranian film that it opens up with the statement, “Whoever guarantees the death of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, I will guarantee the imminent reappearance of Shi* Mahdi.”

    Shia Mahdi – Fact or Fiction ?

    Please watch this, it clears the concept of Shia Mahdi, 12th Imam of the Twelvers Shia which they think is in occultation for the past 1000 years or so and will be coming soon to rule the world and convert everyone to Shia Islam!

    If what they believe is true then, why behind the closed doors their respected Ayatullahs say something else like this great honorable Shia Ayatullah Sayyid Kamal al-Hydari claims that they cannot prove the birth of Shia Mahdi or 12th Imam using authentic Shia narrations/Hadiths. Then who is this imposter the regular Shias are waiting for and are made to believe by the honorable Ayatullahs!?

    Can it be the DAJJAL or Anti-Christ or Jewish Messiah or Lucifer that they all are waiting for!?

    Why the honorable Ayatullahs confuse the good naive Shias and rest of the non-shias by their lies and deceptions!?

    Please, I am just a person who has questions and quoting from their own books, sources, and moths of their honorable scholars n ayatullahs! So don’t assume it as hate, lies, or negative propaganda but just plain TRUTH! If anyone feels the need to criticize or vent, please do so at your own honorable Ayatullahs! Thanks!

    Shiism/ Shiite Creed of Filth, Sex & Immorality Exposed : Anal Sex Permitted During Fast according to Shia Scholars

    Anal Sex Permitted During Fast according to the creed of Shiite Majoosism.

    ‘Allaamah al-Hilly in his book “Nihayatul-Ihkaam fi Ma’rifatul-Ahkaam” vol. 7, p. 460, Issue # 1843 writes:

    Also, from him from Ahmad b. Muhammad, from Ali b. al-Hakam, from a “man” from Abu Abdullah [as] who said:

    “If the man had an ANAL SEX with a woman while she’s fasting, it doesn’t invalidate her fasting, nor must she takes a Ghusl (shower).”

    Now let’s not forget that this Allaamah is the same man who gave the fatwa on having Tayammum on a woman’s private parts if covered with sand…

    What is the religion of Shias actually made off? A religion of Sex and Immorality!

    Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, wrote extensively on Islamic Jurisprudence. A two-volume book, which was published originally in Arabic, was called ‘Tahrir al Wasilah’. Translated into Farsi, the book is called “Tahrirolvasyleh.” (read entire text here.) Khomeini also had another treatise on Islamic rules for living, called in English, “The Little Green Book.” (see entire text here.)

    It is useful to understand what an esteemed Islamic leader such as the Ayatollah teaches his followers. Here are some excerpts from “Tahrirolvasyleh” which Muslims probably don’t want you to know about Islam:

    A man can have sexual pleasure from a child as young as a baby. However, he should not penetrate vaginally, but sodomising the child is acceptable. If a man does penetrate and damage the child then, he should be responsible for her subsistence all her life. This girl will not count as one of his four permanent wives and the man will not be eligible to marry the girl’s sister… It is better for a girl to marry at such a time when she would begin menstruation at her husband’s house, rather than her father’s home. Any father marrying his daughter so young will have a permanent place in heaven. [“Tahrirolvasyleh”, fourth edition, Qom, Iran, 1990]

    A man can have sex with animals such as sheep, cows, camels and so on. However, he should kill the animal after he has his heavenly feeling.He should not sell the meat to the people in his own village, but selling the meat to a neighbouring village is reasonable.

    If one commits the act of sodomy with a cow, a ewe, or a camel, their urine and their excrement become impure and even their milkmay no longer be consumed. The animal must then be killed as quickly as possible and burned.

    Wine and all intoxicating beverages are impure, but opium and hashish are not.

    If a man sodomises the son, brother, or father of his wife after their marriage, the marriage remains valid.

    During sexual intercourse, if the joystick enters a woman’s womanliness or a man’s anus, fully or only as far as the circumcision ring, both partners become impure, even if they have not reached puberty; they must consequently perform ablutions.

    A woman who has contracted a continuing marriage does not have the right to go out of the house without her husband’s permission; she must remain at his disposal for the fulfilment of any one of his desires, and may not refuse herself to him except for a religiously valid reason. If she is totally submissive to him, the husband must provide her with her food, clothing, and lodging, whether or not he has the means to do so. A woman who refuses herself to her husband is guilty, and may not demand from him food, clothing, lodging, or any later sexual relations; however, she retains the right to bepaid damages if she is repudiated.

    It is not illegal for an adult male to ‘thigh’ or enjoy a young girl who is still in the age of weaning; meaning to place his joystick between her thighs, and to kiss her. [“The Little Green Book”]

    Paedophilia legal in Iran

    In June, 2002 Iranian authorities approved a law raising the age at which girls can marry without parental consent from 9 to 13. The elected legislature actually passed the bill in 2000, but the “Guardian Council”, a 12-man body of conservative clerics, vetoed it as contradicting Islamic Sharia law. Iran’s clericalestablishment insists that the marriage of young girls is a means to combat immorality. The Expediency Council, which arbitrates between the elected parliament and the theocratic Guardian Council, timidly passed the measure. The law however does not change the age at which children can get married (nine for girls and 14 for boys), but says that girls below the age of 13 and boys younger than 15 need their parents’ permission and the approval of a “Righteous Court.” Reformists state that the new law does not protect children, since most of those who marry at such a young age do so by force.

    A religious decree by Khomeini ordered that girl prisoners who are virgins must be Molested before execution, to prevent them from entering heaven. A Guard conducts the molest the night before execution. The next day, a marriage certificate is issued by a mullah, who sends it to the girl’s family, along with a box of chocolates as a wedding gift.

    It is quite common in Iran for older men to marry children, as long as they pay the appropriate bride-price to the girl’s family. This basically means that a father can sell his daughter to whomever he wants, whilst the mad mullahs see this as a means of maintaining purity. We prefer to call this child prostitution and molest, especially given that Iran’s clerics approve of the ‘tradition’ of ‘temporary marriage’ (Mut’a) , which can last less than 24 hours and may be repeated as many times as desired. This form of exploitation is widespread and legitimises sexwith young children. The man may even visit his temporary wife every weekend at her father’s house, for about $10 per visit.

    Khomeini on prostitution and Mut’a (temporary marriage)

    “It is permissible to do Mut’a with an adulteress, but with aversion, particularly if she is a well-known prostitute. If Mut’a is done with her, she should be told to give-up her profession.”

    Adultery (Zina) are allowed (even between Shia family members) in the religion of Shiism/ Shiite Majosism according to Shia Scholar Tijani

    Book : All Solutions are with the Prophet’s Progeny, p 256-257

    Author : Muhammad Tijane.

    Chapter : Temporary marriage and its importance

    Tijani the liar said in his book:

    “Most of times, a young woman may come to the marital house while she knows neither much nor little about sex, and perhaps the husband may be so too. This is if they live in a Muslim society that follows the actual laws of Islam, or we may say ‘the ideal Muslim society’ that seems to be imaginary, because it is very difficult, or somehow impossible, to be applied, for it is not possible to suppress this instinct in males or females anyhow.

    Whatever we try to ignore this instinct, we shall not be successful most of times.

    When the genitals and glands of a male and a female grow and they feel the desire to sex, they shall practice sex in a way or another, whatever parents try to watch them. There is no doubt that males and females shall find an opportunity to meet, and in the least, boys may practice sex with boys and girls with girls.

    The Shiite authentic works also permits homosexuality and sodomy: “(Narrated) Muhammad bin Yahya, from Ahmad bin Muhammad, from Muhammad bin Yahya, from Talha bin Zaid, from Abu Abdullah [as] said: The Messenger of Allah [pbuh] said: Whoever voluntarily let others sexually molest him, Allah will invest him with women’s lust.” [al-Kafi (fil Furoo’) al-Kulainy, Book of Nikaah, Chapter: Who Let Others Sexually Molest Him, vol.5, p.549, narration 1.] Comment: May Allah curse the liars who lie on the Apostle of Allah [saw].

    “(Narrated) Ali bin Ibraaheem from his father from al-Nufaly from As-Sukoony from (Imam) Abu Abdallah [as] said: Amierul-Mu’mineen (Ali) [as] said: (al-Luwaat ma doon ad-dubur, wad-dubur huwal-kufr) Sodomy is in (anything) other than dubur (anal sex), for dubur [has multi meanings] is actually the Kufr (disbelief)”. The commentator on al-Kafi wrote: “It is possible to understand (from the statement) that Sodomizing (a man) is permissible” al-Kafi (fil Furoo’): Book of Marriage: Chapter of Sodomy, narration 3, vol.5, p.544

    Easy way to Heaven – Eat Filth (Najjis-Shit/ Feaces) and Drink Blood / Urine of Shia Imam.

    Shia Really EAT Imams’ FECES (poop) and Drink URINE in order to be admitted to Paradise…

    Grand Ayatollah Akhond Mulla Zainul-Abideen al-Kalbaikani wrote in his book “Anwaar al-Wilayah”: page 440

    “There’s nothing (impure) in the urine of the infallibles: their blood, urine and feaces (are free of) any filth or dirtiness and hence they are not from those things which you have to stay away from in the prayers or its like… nor is there any stink in their urine or feaces, rather both are like the Musk. Nay, (in fact) whoever drinks [and eat] their urine, their feaces and their blood : Allah forbids the [punishment] of the fire on him, and admission to Heaven becomes a must for him …”

    Mutah and Status of Shia Women – Rented body and a Slave-women!

    Some points regarding Mutah marriage or temporary marriage… of course it’s not marriage at all and the Prophet PBUH prohibited it.

    More info in arabic can be read: here & here

    Point #1: The woman that married in mutah is nothing but a rented body.

    From “Wasail ush-Shia”:

    [ 26407 ] 2 ـ وعنه ، عن أحمد بن إسحاق ، عن سعدان بن مسلم ، عن عبيد بن زرارة ، عن أبيه ، عن أبي عبدالله ( عليه السلام ) قال : ذكرت له المتعة ، أهي من الاربع ؟ فقال : تزوج منهن ألفا فانهن مستأجرات .

    2 – And from him from Ahmad b. Ishaq from Sa`dan b. Muslim from `Ubayd b. Zurara from his father from Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام. He said: I mentioned mut`a (Woman) to him, is she from the four (Wives)? So he said: Marry a thousand of them, for they are rented women.

    [ 26409 ] 4 ـ وعنه ، عن أحمد ، عن الحسين بن سعيد ومحمد بن خالد ، عن القاسم بن عروة ، عن عبد الحميد ، عن محمد بن مسلم ، عن أبي جعفر ( عليه السلام ) ، في المتعة : ليست من الاربع لانها لا تطلق ولا ترث وإنما هي مستأجرة .

    4 – And from him from Ahmad from al-Husayn b. Sa`id and Muhammad b. Khalid from al-Qasim b. `Urwa from `Abd al-Hamid from Muhammad b. Muslim from Abu Ja`far عليه السلام regarding mut`a: She is not from the four (Wives) since she is not divorced nor does she inherit. And she is only a rented woman.

    [ 26419 ] 14 ـ العياشي في ( تفسيره ) : عن عبد السلام ، عن أبي عبدالله ( عليه السلام ) قال : قلت له : ما تقول في المتعة ؟ قال : قول الله : ( فما استمتعتم به منهن فآتوهن أجورهن فريضة ) إلى أجل مسمى ( ولا جناح عليكم فيما تراضيتم به من بعد الفريضة ) قال : قلت : جعلت فداك ، أهي من الاربع ؟ قال : ليست من الاربع إنما هي إجارة ، الحديث .

    14 – al-`Ayyashi in his Tafsir from `Abd as-Salam from Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام. He said: I said to him: What do you say regarding mut`a? He said: The saying of Allah “So those of them with whom you have done mut`a” to a named duration “then give them their wages as a duty.” He said: I said: May I be made sacrifice for you, is she from the four? He said: She is not from the four, it is only a renting – (al-hadith)

    [ 26530 ] 1 ـ محمد بن يعقوب ، عن علي بن إبراهيم ، عن أبيه ، عن ابن أبي عمير ، عن بعض أصحابنا ، عن زرارة ، عن أبي جعفر ( عليه السلام ) قال : قلت له : الرجل يتزوج المتعة وينقضي شرطها ثم يتزوجها رجل آخر حتى بانت منه ثم يتزوجها الاول حتى بانت منه ثلاثا وتزوجت ثلاثة أزواج ، يحل للاول أن يتزوجها ؟ قال : نعم ، كم شاء ليس هذه مثل الحرة ، هذه مستأجرة وهيبمنزلة الاماء .

    ورواه الشيخ بإسناده عن محمد بن يعقوب ، نحوه .

    1 – Muhammad b. Ya`qub from `Ali b. Ibrahim from his father from Ibn Abi `Umayr from one of our companions from Zurara from Abu Ja`farعليه السلام. He said: I said to him: The man who marries in mut`a and her (or, its) stipulation (i.e. duration) expires then another man marries her until she separates from him then the first one marries her until she separates from him, thrice, and she married three husbands. It is allowed for the first one to marry her? He said: Yes, as much as he wants, this is not like the freewoman, this is a rented (or, hired) woman and she is of the status of the slave-girl.

    And the Shaykh narrated it by his isnad from Muhammad b. Ya`qub likewise.

    Point #2: Women which married in such marriage are equal to slave-women.

    From “Wasail ush-Shia” by Hurr al-Amili.

    [ 26411 ] 6 ـ وعن علي بن إبراهيم ، عن أبيه ، عن ابن أبي عمير ، عن عمر بن اُذينة ، عن أبي عبدالله ( عليه السلام ) ، قال : قلت له : كم يحل من المتعة ؟ قال : فقال : هن بمنزلة الاماء .

    6 – And from `Ali b. Ibrahim from his father from Ibn Abi `Umayr from `Umar b. Udhayna from Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام. He said: I said to him: How many are allowed in mut`a? So he said: They are of the status of slave women.

    [ 26413 ] 8 ـ وعن عليّ ، عن أبيه ، عن ابن أبي عمير ، عن عمر بن اُذينة ، عن إسماعيل بن الفضل الهاشميّ قال : سألت أبا عبدالله ( عليه السلام ) عن المتعة ؟ فقال : إلق عبد الملك بن جريج فسله عنها فإن عنده منها علما ، فلقيته فأملى علي شيئا كثيرا في استحلالها ، وكان فيما روى لي فيها ابن جريج ، أنه ليس فيها وقت ولا عدد إنما هي بمنزلة الاماء يتزوج منهن كم شاء ، وصاحبالاربع نسوة يتزوج منهن ما شاء بغير ولي ولا شهود ، فاذا انقضي الاجل بانت منه بغير طلاق ، ويعطيها الشيء اليسير ، وعدتها حيضتان ، وإن كانت لا تحيض فخمسة وأربعون يوما ، قال :فأتيت بالكتاب أبا عبدالله ( عليه السلام ) فقال : صدق وأقر به ، قال ابن اذينة : وكان زرارة يقول هذا ويحلف أنه الحق إلا أنه كان يقول : ان كانت تحيض فحيضة ، وإن كانت لا تحيض فشهرونصف .

    8 – And from `Ali from his father from Ibn Abi `Umayr from `Umar b. Udhayna from Isma`il b. al-Fadl al-Hashimi. He said: I asked Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام about mut`a. So he said: Go meet `Abd al-Malik b. Jurayj and ask him about it, for verily he has knowledge about it.

    So I met him and he dictated many things to me in regards to its being deemed lawful, and in what Ibn Jurayj narrated to me regarding it was that there is no time and number in it, she is only with the status of the slave women, one marries from them however many one wants. And the one who has four wives marries from them what he wants without a guardian or witnesses. So when the term is expired, she is separated from him without divorce. And he gives her the simple thing. And her `idda is two menstruations. And that if she does not menstruate, then it is forty-five days.

    He said: So I brought the writing to Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام [and I presented it to him – in al-Kafi] and he said: He has spoken the truth and confirmed it. Ibn Udhayna said: And Zurara would say this and swear that it was the truth, except that he would say: If she menstruates, then a (single) menstruation, and if she does not menstruate, then a month and a half.

    [ 26416 ] 11 ـ وبإسناده ، عن أحمد بن محمد بن أبي نصر ، عن أبي الحسن ( عليه السلام ) ، قال : سألته عن الرجل تكون له المرأة ، ( هل ) يتزوج بأختها متعة ؟ قال : لا ، قلت : حكى زرارة ، عن أبي جعفر ( عليه السلام ) ، إنما هي مثل الاماء يتزوج ما شاء ، قال : لا ، هي من الاربع .

    قال الشيخ : هذان الخبران وردا مورد الاحتياط والفضل دون الحظر ، واستدل بما تقدم ، وحاصله كراهة الزيادة ولو للتقية ، وحديث عمار يحتمل الحمل على الانكار أيضا ، ويحتمل الحديثان إرادةالتشبيه يعني أنها كإحدى الاربع في تحريم الاخت جمعا وفي كثير من الاحكام لا في تحريم الزيادة .

    11 – And by his isnad from Ahmad b. Muhammad b. Abi Nasr from Abu ‘l-Hasan عليه السلام. He said: I asked him about the man who has a wife does he [is it allowed for him to – in at-Tahdheeb] marry her sister in mut`a? He said: No. I said: Zurara related from Abu Ja`far عليه السلام that she is only like the slave women, one marries what one wants. He said: No, she is from the four.

    The Shaykh said: These two reports have come by way of precaution and virtue without there being forbiddance, and he deduced it by what has preceded. And its sum is the dislike of increase even if for taqiyya. And it is possible to interpret the hadith of `Ammar as also being denial. And it is possible to interpret the two hadiths to mean similarity, meaning that she is like one of the four in regards to the forbiddance of the (marrying) the sister at the same time, and in much of the (other) rules, (but) not in regards to the forbiddance of increase.

    [ 26417 ] 12 ـ محمد بن علي بن الحسين بإسناده عن الفضيل بن يسار ، أنّه سأل أبا عبدالله ( عليه السلام ) عن المتعة ؟ فقال : هي كبعض إمائك .

    ورواه في ( المقنع ) مرسلا .

    12 – Muhammad b. `Ali b. al-Husayn by his isnad from al-Fudayl b. Yasar that he asked Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام about mut`a. So he said: She is as one of your slave women.

    And he narrated it in al-Muqni` mursalan.

    [ 26418 ] 13 ـ عبدالله بن جعفر في ( قرب الاسناد ) : عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى ، عن أحمد بن محمد بن أبي نصر ، عن أبي الحسن الرضا ( عليه السلام ) قال : سألته عن المتعة ـ إلى أن قال :ـ وسألته من الاربع هي ؟ فقال : اجعلوها من الاربع على الاحتياط ، قال : وقلت له : ان زرارة حكى عن أبي جعفر ( عليه السلام ) إنما هن مثل الاماء يتزوج منهن ما شاء ، فقال : هي من الاربع .

    أقول : عرفت وجهه .

    13 – `Abdullah b. Ja`far in Qurb al-Isnad from Ahmad b. Muhammad b. `Isa from Ahmad b. Muhammad b. Abi Nas from Abu ‘l-Hasan ar-Rida عليه السلام. He said; I asked him about mut`a – until he said: And I asked him whether she is from the four. So he said: Put her from the four upon precaution. He said: And I said to him: Zurara related from Abu Ja`far عليه السلام that they are only like the slave girls, one marries from them as much as one wants. So he said: She is from the four.

    I say: You have known its meaning.

    Comment: So… we know already and proven from shia fatwas how low they can go with their rented slaves of pleasure… Do the Pious Shia Women accept this!? Your scholars destroyed your Madhab and reduced it to Mut’ah and Khums.

    Lying and Deception in Shiism:

    For Shia, Taqiyya is the rule, not the exception of the rule. For Shia, the twisted form of Taqiyya is a prescribed duty and a pillar of their faith. Shiism could not stand without it. They learn the principles and methods of Taqi’ah and they practice it.

    The Shia practice Taqiyah to hide their Shia beliefs, not the Islamic beliefs.

    In support of their twisted form of Taqiyya, we find the following in Shia’s classical reference books:

    In a narration, Shia falsely attribut to the 8th Shia Imam, Ali bin Musa, he said: “ The one who is not wari (pious) has no religion and the one who does not practice Taqiyyah has no Iman ( deep faith).” So he was asked, “O grandson of the Messenger, until when (is one required to practice Taqiyyah)?” He replied, “Until a certain day (i.e. the day Imam Mahdi appears). Whoever does not practice Taqiyyah before the appearance of Imam Mahdi, is not one of us.” (Kashf al-Ghummah Al-Ardabili, pg. 341).

    “Nine tenths (90%) of religion (Shiism) is Taqiyya (dissimulation), hence one who does not dissimulate has no religion.” (Al-Kafi vol.9 p.110)

    “He who conceals his religion has saved it, and he who makes it public has destroyed it.”

    The Shias Hidden Imam’s Conundrum –

    In the book “Akaid al-Imamiya” Shia Ayatullah Muhammad Reda Muzaffar said:

    “We believe that, just as it is necessary for Allah to send someone as a prophet, so it is also necessary for Him to appoint an Imam. It is necessary that at all times there should be an Imam to represent the prophet, and that he should perform the duties of the prophet, such as guiding the people, and showing them the way of goodness and prosperity in this world and the next. He ought also to hold the highest position as a public authority in all aspects of people’s lives, so that he may cause Justice to increase among them and eliminate enmity and oppression from between them. The Imamate is therefore a continuation of the prophethood, and the reasoning which proves the former’s necessity is the same as that which proves the latter’s”.

    Analysis:

    So presence and availability of Imam is necessity in shia faith. He should judge between peoples, establish justice, help oppressed, and punish oppressors. You see the question? Did he do any of that?

    Ayatullah of shias, allama Baqir Sharif al-Qurashi in his book “The life of Imam al-Mahdi” said: The major occultation began after the death of Ali bin Muhammad Samari in 328 A.H.

    Analysis:

    Now it’s already 1436 year by hijra. Obviously the 12-th imam DIDN’T judged between people, DIDN’T help oppressed, DIDN’T punish oppressors, DIDN’T bring peace, etc. but did just exactly the opposite during these 1108 years!!!

    How Shia Ayatullah’s exploit the Shias and further their own wealth, power, and status –

    The Shia say that a leader cannot be elected by men, but rather must be appointed by Allah. We wonder: why then was Ayatollah Khomeini or Khamenei elected as leader? Was he not also elected by men?

    Ayatollah Khamenei and the rest of the Shia Ayatollahs exploit the teachings of Shi’ism in order to further their own power and status. The Ayatollahs elaborate on the concept of Infallible Imams, and by doing so, they indirectly boost their own position and status since they are the interim Imams. To put it bluntly, the Ayatollahs are telling us that since the Hidden Imam could not make it to work today, Ayatollah Khomeini is going to be filling in for him.

    This concept is called Wilayat ul-Faqih. In the absence of the Hidden Imam, the Shia decided that they would elect a popular leader, or deputy Imam. This deputy Imam, such as Ayatollah Khomeini, would be the “representative” of the Mahdi while he is in occultation.

    Under this system of Wilayat ul-Faqih, Ayatollah Khomeini became the supreme leader of the Shia of Iran. In 1969-70, the late Ayatullah Khomoeini further elaborated on the concept in his work “Islamic Government” and the notion of Wilayat ul-Faqih was enshrined in the Iranian Constitution in 1979. Ayatullah Khomeini declared that the deputy Imam is endowed with the same authority as an Infallible Imam, encompassing all spheres of life. Ayatollah Khomeini declared himself to have Wilayat ul-Mutlaqa, or Absolute Authority from Allah. Ayatollah Khomeini said in one of his speeches that the Wilayat-ul-Faqih can even order Muslims to stop reading prayer if he finds that reading the prayers could harm Islam.

    The Shia scholars have quoted the Infallible Imams as calling themselves Ayatollahs (the Signs of Allah). We are not surprised to find that Khomeini also took this title. We wonder: how exactly is Khomeini a “Sign of Allah?” In fact, his entire name–Ayatollah Ruhallah Khomeini–is a perplexity. Ruhallah translates to “Spirit of Allah.” Are the Shia really claiming that Khomeini is the Spirit of Allah? Likewise did the Christians do with their Prophet. The Shia also say that their Infallible Imams were the Hujjat (proof) of Allah, and we are then not surprised to find that Ayatollah Khomeini also declared himself Hujjat of Allah.

    Using the concept of Wilayat ul-Faqih and Mutlaqa, the Shia Imams have quickly brought themselves to such a lofty position as rulers and monarchs of Iran. This Wilayat ul-Faqih is the biggest fraud in the world; these Shia Imams have hoodwinked so many millions of people into being subservient to their rule.

    Khomeini and the rest of the Shia leaders have used and abused the Shia doctrine of Imamah in order to boost their own political power by using the concept of Wilayat-ul-Faqih. The Shia Ayatollahs have become so powerful and politically influential that they have millions of Shia adherents posting up pictures of the Ayatollahs as if they were pop idols.

    The Shia Clergy have used their power to get immensely wealthy. They are quite literally swimming in money, thanks to the concept of Khums. Of the Khums payment (which is 20% of a man’s income), half of it must be given to the deputy Imam. In this manner, the Ayatollahs and Imams of the Shia have become billionaires in Iran.

    It is altogether degrading how the Shia Imams exploit their religion to fool the incredulous masses who do not bother to question the exalted status of their leaders.

    The real reason why the Shia Ayatullah’s kept alive the lies about Hidden Imam and Infallibility –

    When one reads the classical literature of the Shia in which the activities of the four representatives are outlined, one is struck by the constantly recurring theme of money. The representatives of the Hidden Imam are almost always mentioned in connection with receiving and collecting “the Imam’s money” from his loyal Shia followers. There is a shocking lack of any activities of an academic or spiritual nature. Not a single one of the four is credited with having compiled any book, despite the fact that they were in exclusive communion with the last of the Imams, the sole repository of the legacy of the Prophet as the Shia claim.

    The Shia community at large never had the privilege of seeing or meeting the person they believed to be the author of the tawqiat. Their experience was limited to receiving what the representatives produced. Even the argument of a consistent handwriting in all the various tawqiat is at best melancholy. There is no way one can get away from the fact that the existence of the Hidden Imam rests upon nothing other than acceptance of the words of the representatives.

    This concept of someone writing hidden communiques has no basis in Islam. If there was any need for this, then why wouldn’t the Prophet be the one to send these tawqiat? And in any case, the Prophet never did such a thing and this belief is a Mushrik belief adopted from the Christian concept of the Holy Ghost. Just like the Christians claim to reach out to the Holy Ghost, likewise do these Shia claim the same with their Hidden Imam. Many Shia adherents today pray to the Hidden Imam for help much like the Christians do so with the Holy Ghost. The presence of the Hidden Imam is supposedly in the room, exactly how the Christians say that they reach out to the presence of their Holy Ghost. And just like the Catholic Church gets rich off of donations from its adherents, so too do the representatives of the Imams get rich off their Shia followers.

    In Iran today, the Shia Imams and Ayatollahs are multi-millionaires and even billionaires. They are exploiting religion for money, wealth, and power. These Ayatollahs claim to be representatives of the Hidden Imam. Perhaps, the greatest fraud representative of the Hidden Imam was Ayatollah Khomeini who duped the entire Shia community. Khomeini claimed Wilayat ul-Faqih and called himself Wilayat ul-Mutlaqa, meaning that he has absolute authority from Allah since he was the “representative” of the Imam in his absence. Like the Four Representatives during the Lesser Occultation who condemned rival claimants to their position, so too did Ayatollah Khomeini put so many Ayatollahs in house arrest for questioning his position as representative of the Imam. These rival Ayatollahs decried Wilayat ul-Faqih as a fraud, but Khomeini silenced any threat to his rise to power.

    Indeed, the reason that the Shia Imams and Ayatollahs preach this concept of Infallible Imams is not out of reverence for their twelve Infallible Imams, but rather it is to secure their own position of prestige as representatives of these late Infallible Imams.

    What other name do we call this except a religion of luck and confusion, if you are an Ayatollah you lucky if your are a follower you are confused!?

    Part 2: Minority report: Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s Setad seized Baha’is properties in Iran

    The Islamic Republic’s 34-year rule has hurt many religious and political groups in Iran, but one community has borne an especially heavy burden: the Baha’is, a religious minority viewed as heretics by some Muslims.

    Dozens of Baha’is were killed or jailed in the years immediately following the Islamic revolution in 1979. Billions of dollars worth of land, houses, shops and other Baha’i belongings were seized in subsequent years by various Iranian organizations, including Setad, the organization overseen by Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

    The United Nations office of the Baha’i International Community, a non-governmental organization, estimates that more than 2,000 homes, shops, orchards and other properties were seized from its members in Iran up to 2003, the most recent figure available. The property was then worth about $10 billion.

    “It’s really one of the most obvious cases of state persecution,” Heiner Bielefeldt, the UN Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief, said about the treatment of Baha’is in Iran at a United Nations conference in Geneva this year. “It’s basically state persecution, systematic and covering all areas of state activities, the various systems from family law provisions to schooling, education, security.”

    One reason clerics in Iran have targeted the group with such zeal is the fact devout Muslims see the Baha’i faith as heresy and an insult to the teachings of Islam. The religion started in 1844 in the southern city of Shiraz when a man named Bab announced the coming of a messenger of God. In 1863, one of Bab’s followers named Baha’ullah declared himself to be the messenger and began preaching a message of unity among faiths. His followers were attacked and he spent years in exile, dying in the city of Acre, in what was then Palestine, in 1892.

    During most of the 20th century, the monarchs ruling Iran tolerated Baha’is, though there were periodic arrests and attacks against members of the community, according to historians.

    After the Islamic revolution, the group was targeted again. While Jews and Christians were recognized as religious minorities in the new constitution, Baha’is were not. Hundreds of Baha’is were expelled from universities or had their businesses attacked or their properties confiscated, members of the community say.

    The Iranian government did not respond to a request for comment.

    The Baha’i International Community estimates there are 300,000 Baha’is left in Iran. In late July, Khamenei issued an edict stating that Iranians should avoid all dealings with Baha’is, according to Iran’s Tasnim news agency.

    An Iranian lawyer who represented more than half a dozen Baha’i clients in recent cases involving confiscated property says he was called in for questioning by intelligence agents last year and threatened. The lawyer, who is Muslim and spoke on condition he not be named, told Reuters he had to stop accepting Baha’i clients.

    “The government has set up a system where Baha’is are not allowed to build up financial strength,” said the lawyer.

    Continued..

    Washington has acknowledged Setad’s importance. In June, the Treasury Department imposed sanctions on Setad and some of its corporate holdings, calling the organization “a massive network of front companies hiding assets on behalf of … Iran’s leadership.” The companies generate billions of dollars in revenue a year, the department stated, but it did not offer a detailed accounting.

    The Iranian president’s office and the foreign ministry didn’t respond to requests for comment. Iran’s embassy in the United Arab Emirates issued a statement calling Reuters’ findings “scattered and disparate” and said that “none has any basis.” It didn’t elaborate.

    Setad’s director general of public relations, Hamid Vaezi, said by email in response to a detailed description of this series that the information presented is “far from realities and is not correct.” He didn’t go into specifics.

    Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei Heads Up $95bn Setad Business Empire ‘Built on Property Seizures’ of Helpless Shias, Sunnis, and Baha’is –

    Part 1: A Reuters investigation details a key to the supreme leader’s power: a little-known organization created to help the poor that morphed into a business juggernaut worth tens of billions of dollars.

    The 82-year-old Iranian woman keeps the documents that upended her life in an old suitcase near her bed. She removes them carefully and peers at the tiny Persian script.

    There’s the court order authorizing the takeover of her children’s three Tehran apartments in a multi-story building the family had owned for years. There’s the letter announcing the sale of one of the units. And there’s the notice demanding she pay rent on her own apartment on the top floor.

    Pari Vahdat-e-Hagh ultimately lost her property. It was taken by an organization that is controlled by the most powerful man in Iran: Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. She now lives alone in a cramped, three-room apartment in Europe, thousands of miles from Tehran.

    The Persian name of the organization that hounded her for years is “Setad Ejraiye Farmane Hazrate Emam” – Headquarters for Executing the Order of the Imam. The name refers to an edict signed by the Islamic Republic’s first leader, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, shortly before his death in 1989. His order spawned a new entity to manage and sell properties abandoned in the chaotic years after the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

    Setad has become one of the most powerful organizations in Iran, though many Iranians, and the wider world, know very little about it. In the past six years, it has morphed into a business juggernaut that now holds stakes in nearly every sector of Iranian industry, including finance, oil, telecommunications, the production of birth-control pills and even ostrich farming.

    The organization’s total worth is difficult to pinpoint because of the secrecy of its accounts. But Setad’s holdings of real estate, corporate stakes and other assets total about $95 billion, Reuters has calculated. That estimate is based on an analysis of statements by Setad officials, data from the Tehran Stock Exchange and company websites, and information from the U.S. Treasury Department.

    Just one person controls that economic empire – Khamenei. As Iran’s top cleric, he has the final say on all governmental matters. His purview includes his nation’s controversial nuclear program, which was the subject of intense negotiations between Iranian and international diplomats in Geneva that ended Sunday without an agreement. It is Khamenei who will set Iran’s course in the nuclear talks and other recent efforts by the new president, Hassan Rouhani, to improve relations with Washington.

    The supreme leader’s acolytes praise his spartan lifestyle, and point to his modest wardrobe and a threadbare carpet in his Tehran home. Reuters found no evidence that Khamenei is tapping Setad to enrich himself.

    But Setad has empowered him. Through Setad, Khamenei has at his disposal financial resources whose value rivals the holdings of the shah, the Western-backed monarch who was overthrown in 1979.

    How Setad came into those assets also mirrors how the deposed monarchy obtained much of its fortune – by confiscating real estate. A six-month Reuters investigation has found that Setad built its empire on the systematic seizure of thousands of properties belonging to ordinary Iranians: members of religious minorities like Vahdat-e-Hagh, who is Baha’i, as well as Shi’ite Muslims, business people and Iranians living abroad.

    Setad has amassed a giant portfolio of real estate by claiming in Iranian courts, sometimes falsely, that the properties are abandoned. The organization now holds a court-ordered monopoly on taking property in the name of the supreme leader, and regularly sells the seized properties at auction or seeks to extract payments from the original owners.

    The supreme leader also oversaw the creation of a body of legal rulings and executive orders that enabled and safeguarded Setad’s asset acquisitions. “No supervisory organization can question its property,” said Naghi Mahmoudi, an Iranian lawyer who left Iran in 2010 and now lives in Germany.

    Khamenei’s grip on Iran’s politics and its military forces has been apparent for years. The investigation into Setad shows that there is a third dimension to his power: economic might. The revenue stream generated by Setad helps explain why Khamenei has not only held on for 24 years but also in some ways has more control than even his revered predecessor. Setad gives him the financial means to operate independently of parliament and the national budget, insulating him from Iran’s messy factional infighting.

    Hezbollah’s Fraud in the name of Khums –

    In 2005, Hezbollah spokesman Hussein Naboulsi proudly declared that most of their revenue comes from khums. The interviewer asked him, “From where do you obtain your funds for all of your activities, be it military or social?” His answer:

    Mainly from donations. In our Shiia religious system we have “al Khums”, meaning that each year a 5th of our profit will go to the religious leaders who then proceed to further distribute the money. However, we accept money from anyone who believes in our cause. If the US or a European country would like to help us, their support would be welcome.

    Cambridge scholar Syed Ali Abbas told Open Democracy in 2006 that Hezbollah and Iran are inextricably linked through the khums:

    If Iran as a state were to withdraw material support for Hizbollah, this would not mean the collapse of Hizbollah as an organisation. Hizbollah gets most of its funding through the Shi’a taxation system of khums. This is a unique form of tax, quite separate from the mainstream Islamic tax (zakat).

    In 2007, NPR’s John Ydstie asked Hezbollah expert Amal Saad-Ghorayeb, “And where is the money that Hezbollah has distributed come from?”

    Ms. SAAD-GHORAYEB: Well, of course, Hezbollah doesn’t disclose its sources of financing, but what we do know is Hezbollah relies very much on Shiite religious taxes called the khums. And, at the same time, one can assume that Iran does provide Hezbollah with some financial aid, although neither Iran nor Hezbollah will admit to this.

    The joys of khums don’t end there. Khums has funded al-Houthi rebels in Yemen “for decades,” and khums allocations have caused friction in Iraq cities.

    Meanwhile, Shia leaders (like the ones championing the khums that we covered in yesterday’s post) credit khums with promoting independence, flexibility, and evolving interpretations in Islamic scholarship by supplying plenty o’ money to the imams and ayatollahs: under Shia taxation, the “leading ulama always enjoyed a degree of independence from the state that was unheard of elsewhere…due to a special ‘income tax’ (khums) that is paid to them directly by the faithful, making senior clerics…largely independent from state influence…”

    Fraudulent Representatives of the Hidden Imam: The Khums Tax Menace Imposed by Shia Ayatullah’s on Shia’s

    Introduction

    The Shia say that their 12th Imam went into hiding, the lesser and greater occultation. What is interesting to see is what happens when the Imam went into hiding [i.e. who takes his place during his absence].

    When the 12th Imam supposedly went into Lesser Occultation, various people set themselves up as the representatives of the Imam, and who were in control of a network covering various parts of the Islamic empire–a network for the purpose of collecting money in the name of the Hidden Imam.

    All followers of the Imams were obliged to pay one fifth of their income to the representatives of the Imams. This is called Khums, which is a Wajibat of Shia faith. At the head of this network was a man who self-appointed himself as the Khums collector; his name was Uthman ibn Said al-Amri. (Note: This practice of Khums continues to this day: the Shia of Iran pay a religious tax that goes in the coffers of their Ayatollahs.)

    Death of the 11th Imam

    The predicament at the time was that the 11th Imam, Hasan Al-Askari, had died without any offspring.Uthman ibn Said resolved this predicament in an interesting manner: Uthman ibn Said declared that Hasan al-Askari had left behind a son before he died. This child was supposedly four years old and was named Muhammad. According to Uthman ibn Said, this son went into occultation and nobody but Uthman ibn Said himself could have any contact with the Hidden Imam. And from that point onwards Uthman ibn Said would act as the wakeel (representative) of the Hidden Imam and collect money in his name.

    The truth is that Hasan al-Askari did not have any son, and there is an overabundance of historical evidence to prove this. All secular historical accounts attest to this fact, and indeed, many sects of the Shia in fact admit that Hasan al-Askari did not have a son. It is only the Ithna Ashari Shia and a few other branches of the Shia which believe in this mysterious son.

    Hasan al-Askari’s own family were completely ignorant of the existence of any child of his, and Hasan al-Askari’s estate had been divided between his brother Jafar and his mother (instead of any to the son). If Hasan al-Askari really had a child, then why did his own family not give a share of the inheritance to him? To deal with this discrepancy, Uthman ibn Said and his ilk responded by denouncing Jafar (Hasan al-Askari’s brother) as al-Kadhab (the Liar). Moojan Momen writes in “An Introduction to Shi’i Islam” (London, 1985, p. 162) that, “Jafar remained unshakable in his assertion that his brother (Hasan al-Askari) had no progeny.” In this manner, the Shia accuse Jafar of being a thief who stole from their Hidden Imam. (It should be noted that Jafar, according to the Shia belief, would also be part of Ahlel Bayt, since he was the brother of Hasan al-Askari. The Ithna Ashari Shia thus abandon Jafar, a member of the Ahlel Bayt, and instead follow Uthman ibn Said.)

    Uthman ibn Said spread this wonderous fairytale of a son who was born to Hasan al-Askari. In due time, a fantastic story was brought into circulation about the union between the 11th Imam and a Roman slave-girl, who is variously named as Narjis, Sawsan or Mulaykah. She is mentioned as having been the daughter of Yoshua (Joshua), the Roman emperor, who is a direct descendant of the apostle Simon Peter.

    But history shows that there never was a Roman emperor of that name. The Roman emperor of the time was Basil I, and neither he nor any other emperor is known to have descended from Peter.

    The story goes on to tell of the Roman slave-girl’s capture by the Muslim army, how she eventually came to be sold to Hasan al-Askari, and of her supernatural pregnancy and the secret birth of the son of whom no one–aside from Uthman ibn Said and his clique–knew anything of. Everything about the child is enveloped in a thick and impenetrable cloud of mystery.

    The Four Representatives

    Uthman ibn Said remained the “representative of the Hidden Imam” for a number of years. In all that time, he was the only link the Shia had with their Imam. During that time, he supplied the Shia community with tawqiat, or written communications, which he claimed were written to them by the Hidden Imam. Many of these communications, which are still preserved in books like at-Tusi’s Kitab al-Ghaybah, had to do with denouncing other claimants to the position of representative. In fact, many people had come to realize exactly how lucrative a position Uthman ibn Said had created for himself, but Uthman ibn Said blocked their efforts by the tawqiat which called them liars and frauds. The Shia literature dealing with Uthman ibn Said’s tenure as representative is replete with references to money collected from the Shia public (i.e. Khums).

    When Uthman ibn Said died, his son Abu Jafar Muhammad produced a written communication from the Hidden Imam in which he himself is appointed the second representative, a position which he held for about fifty years. He too, like his father, had to deal with several rival claimants to his position, but the tawqiat which he regularly produced to denounce them and reinforce his own position ensured the removal of such obstacles and the continuation of support from a credulous Shia public.

    Abu Jafar Muhammad was followed in this position by Abul Qasim ibn Rawh an-Nawbakhti, a scion of the powerful and influential Nawbakhti family of Baghdad. Before succeeding Abu Jafar Muhammad, Abul Qasim an-Nawbakhti was his chief aide in the collection of the one-fifth taxes (i.e. Khums) from the Shia. Like his two predecessors, he too had to deal with rival claimants, one of whom (Muhammad ibn Ali ash-Shalmaghani) used to be an accomplice of his. He is reported in Abu Jafar at-Tusi’s book Kitab al-Ghaybah as having stated: “We knew exactly what we were into with Abul Qasim ibn Rawh. We used to fight like dogs over this matter (of being representative).”

    When Abul Qasim an-Nawbakhti died in 326 AH, he bequethed the position of representative to Abul Hasan as-Samarri. Whereas the first three representatives were shrewd manipulators, Abul Hasan as-Samarri proved to be a more conscientious person. During his three years as representative, there was a sudden drop in tawqiat. Upon his deathbed, he was asked who his successor would be, and he answered that Allah would Himself fulfil the matter. We wonder: could this perhaps be seen as a refusal on his part to perpetuate a hoax that had gone on for too long? Abul Hasan as-Samarri also produced a tawqiat in which the Imam declares that from that day till the day of his reappearance he will never again be seen, and that anyone who claims to see him in that time is a liar.

    Thus, after more or less 70 years, the last “door of contact” with the Hidden Imam closed. The Shia term this period, in which there was contact with their Hidden Imam through his representatives-cum-tax-collectors, the Lesser Occultation (al-Ghaybah as-Sughra), and the period from the death of the last representative onwards the Greater Occultation (al-Ghaybah al-Kubar). The Greater Occulation has lasted for over a thousand years.

    Conclusion

    When one reads the classical literature of the Shia in which the activities of the four representatives are outlined, one is struck by the constantly recurring theme of money. The representatives of the Hidden Imam are almost always mentioned in connection with receiving and collecting “the Imam’s money” from his loyal Shia followers.

Not a single one of the four is credited with having compiled any book, despite the fact that they were in exclusive communion with the last of the Imams, the sole repository of the legacy of the Prophet as the Shia claim.

Everything I need is available like mobile, computer.. but I have too much lust. And there is no one available to have muta’h marriage. With regret I have satanic thoughts in my mind.

    I had sex with two sheeps and a lamb and small calf. And right now I am very afraid because one of the sheep’s stomach became big, and I am afraid it might be pregnant. Is it permissible to have sex with animals our master??

    Because I heard from people its halal. Thank you.

    In his name

    Sex with animals before the mission (Islam) was wide spread and many narrations are narrated that it is halal but makrooh (disliked).

    And on the compulsory precaution one should abandon this practice that may cause self harm. And you must admit this to the owner of the sheep and pay the owner.

    لقد كانت نكاح الحيوانات قبل البعثه منتشره وتروى كثير من الروايات انها حلال لكنها مكروه والاحوط وجوبا ترك هذه العاده التي تسبب الأذى النفسي ويجب عليك الاعتراف لصاحب الاغنام ودفع قيمتها لمالكها

    22 :

    مما يوجب حرمة الحيوان المحلل بالاصل أن يطأه الانسان قبلا أو دبرا و إن لم ينزل ، صغيرا كان الواطئ أو كبيرا ، عالما كان أو جاهلا ، مختارا كان أو مكرها ، فحلا كان الموطوء أو أنثى ، فيحرم بذلك لحمه و لحم نسله المتجدد بعد الوطئ على الاقوى فى نسل الانثى و على الاحوط فى نسل الذكر ، و كذا لبنهما و صوفهما و شعرهما ، و الظاهر أن الحكم مختص بالبهيمة و لا يجري فى وطء سائر الحيوانات لا فيها و لا فى نسلها .

    Issue 22 – Of that which makes a halal origin animal haram is that a human being has sexual intercourse with it, frontally or in back, even if he does not Erupt, whether the doer of the sexual act is a minor or a mature person, knowing or ignorant, choosing (to do it) or compelled, whether the (animal ) that is having sexual intercourse done to it is a steed (male) or female, then by that its meat and the meat of it offspring reborn (?) after the intercourse upon the strongest (view) regarding the offspring of the female and upon the most precautious with regards to the offspring of the male. Likewise is their milk, their wool, and their hair. And what is apparent is that the ruling is specific to the beast (bahima) and does not apply to intercourse with the rest of the animals, not in it and not in its offspring.

    مسألة 23 :

    الحيوان الموطوء إن كان مما يراد أكله كالشاة و البقرة و الناقة يجب أن يذبح ثم يحرق و يغرم الواطئ قيمته لمالكه إن كان غير المالك ، و إن كان مما يراد ظهره حملا أو ركوبا و ليس يعتاد أكله كالحمار و البغل و الفرس أخرج من المحل الذي فعل به إلى بلد آخر فيباع فيه ، فيعطى ثمنه للواطئ ، و يغرم قيمته إن كان غير المالك .

    Issue 23 – The animal which has had sexual intercourse done upon it, if it of (a type) that one wants to eat, like a sheep, and a cow, and a she-camel, then it is wajib to slaughter it then burn it, and the doer of the sexual act is fined its value to its owner if he was not the owner. And if it is of (a type) that one wants to (use) its back to carry (i.e. a beast of burden) or to ride, and its eating is not customary, like the donkey and the mule and the horse, it is taken out of spot in which it was done to another balad (country?) and sold in it. So its price is given for (? Unsure) the doer of the sexual act and he is fined its value if he was not the owner.

    The advent of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was prophesied in the Old, New Testament , and Torah –

    All the previous Prophets predicted the advent of Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings. Despite the changes they have undergone over time, we can still find indications to his coming in the Torah, Psalms and the Gospels.

    PROPHET MUHAMMAD (pbuh) IN THE BIBLE

    Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in the Old Testament:

    For example, the following verses of the Torah promise the coming of the Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings:

    The Lord said to me [Moses]: ‘What they say is good. I will raise up for them a Prophet like you among their brothers; I will put My words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him. If anyone does not listen to My words that the Prophet speaks in My Name, I will Myself call him to account.’ (Deuteronomy, 18.17-9)

    It is clear from these verses that what is meant by ‘a Prophet like you among their brothers’ is a Prophet who will come from the line of Ishmael, since Ishmael is the brother of Isaac, who is the forefather of Moses’ people, the Children of Israel. The only Prophet who came from the line of Ishmael after Moses and resembled him in many ways, for example, in the bringing of a new law and waging of war on his enemies, is the Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings. Also, the following verse of the Bible in Deuteronomy, 34.12 (Istanbul 1885), clearly states that no Prophet like Moses did ever appear among the Israelites:

    With respect to his virtues and awesome deeds, no Prophet like Moses, whom the Lord knows face to face, no longer appeared among Israel.

    The Quran points to the same fact:

    We have sent to you a Messenger as a witness over you, even as We sent to Pharaoh a Messenger. (al-Muzzammil, 73.15)

    The sentence, I will put My words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him, in the verse in question, means that the promised Prophet will be unlettered and speak whatever is revealed to him. God reiterates the same fact in the Quran:

    He does not speak out of [his own] desire. It is but a Revelation revealed. (al-Najm, 53.3-4)

    The Prophet who shone forth from Mount Paran

    The following verse,

    The Lord came from Sinai and dawned over them from Seir; He shone forth from Mount Paran. (Deuteromony, 33.2)

    refers to the Prophethood of Moses, Jesus and Muhammad respectively, upon them be peace. Sinai is the place where the Prophet Moses spoke to God and received the Torah. Seir, a place in Palestine, is where the Prophet Jesus received Divine Revelation. Paran is where God manifested Himself to mankind for the last time through His Revelation to the Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings.

    Paran is a mountain range in Makka. It is mentioned in the Torah (Genesis, 21.19-21) as the area in the desert where Hagar was left by her husband Abraham, upon him be peace, to live with her son, Ishmael. The well of Zamzam appeared in it. As is stated explicitly in the Qur’an (14.35-7), Abraham left Hagar and Ishmael in the valley of Makka, which was then an uninhabited place within the mountain ranges of Paran.

    The verse in Deuteromony, according to the Arabic version published in London in 1944 and the Ottoman Turkish version published in Istanbul in 1885), continues:

    He came with myriads of holy ones; in his right hand appeared to them the fire of the Shari‘a.

    This verse refers to the promised Prophet, Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings, who would have numerous Companions of the highest degree of sainthood. The fire of the Shari‘a alludes to the fact that the promised Prophet would be allowed, and even ordered, to fight against his enemies.

    Other verses in the Old Testament:

    In the Psalms of David, there is the following verse:

    O God, send to us after the interregnum (after the latest of the successive prophets) one who will establish (Your) way.’1

    Here, ‘one who will establish (Your) way’ refers to the Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings.

    The following verse is from the Gospels:

    A verse from the Torah says:

    Surely God said to Abraham: ‘Hagar will certainly bear children. There will appear from her sons one whose hand will be above all, and the hands of all others will be opened to him in reverence.’2

    Another verse from the Torah:

    And He said, ‘O Moses, surely I will raise up for them a Prophet like you, from among their brothers (that is, from among the children of Ishmael); I will put my Word in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him. If anyone does not listen to my words that the prophet speaks in my name, I Myself will call him to account.’ (Deuteronomy, 18:18-19.)

    A third verse from the Torah:

    Moses said: ‘O my Lord, I have found in the Torah a community, as the best of the communities, that will be raised for (the benefit) of mankind; they enjoin the good and forbid the evil, and they believe in God. Let it be my community!’ (God) said: ‘That is the community of Muhammad.’3

    This is a verse from the Psalms:

    O David, a Prophet will come after you, named Ahmad (Muhammad), the Truthful and the Lord, and his community will be forgiven.4

    From the Seven ‘Abdullahs, ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr ibn al- ‘As, who made extensive studies of earlier Divine books, ‘Abdullah ibn Salam, who was the first to embrace Islam from amongst the famous Jewish scholars, and the renowned scholar Ka‘b ibn al-Akhbar from amongst the foremost scholars of the Israelites, all pointed out the following verse in the Torah, which was not then corrupted to its present extent. The verse, after addressing Moses, addresses the Prophet to come in the following strain:

    O Prophet, verily We have sent you as a witness, a bearer of good tidings, a warner and a protection for the unlettered. You are My slave; I have named you ‘the Reliant on God’, who are not harsh and stern, and not clamorous in the marketplaces; who do not repel the evil with evil, but instead pardon and forgive. God will certainly not take away his life until He straightens a crooked nation by means of him (by causing them) to proclaim ‘There is no deity but God.’5

    Another verse from the Torah states:

    Muhammad is the Messenger of God; his birthplace is Makka, he will emigrate to Tayba, the center of his rule is Damascus, and his community are unceasingly occupied with praise of God.6

    In this verse, for the word Muhammad, a Syriac word meaning Muhammad is actually mentioned.

    Another verse from the Torah:

    You are My slave and Messenger; I have named you ‘the Reliant on God.’7

    This verse is also addressed to a Prophet who will emerge after Moses from the progeny of Ishmael, the cousins of the children of Isaac.

    Here is another verse from the Torah:

    My slave is a ‘chosen one’, who is not harsh, nor he is stern.8

    The meaning of ‘Mukhtar’, a chosen one, is the same as ‘Mustafa’, a name of Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings.

    The Prophet who will come after Jesus is referred to as ‘the Master of the world’ in several places in the Gospels. (John, 14:30)

    This verse of the Gospel, which has come to describe him,

    With him is an iron staff with which he will fight, as will his community.9

    indicates that a Prophet will come with a sword to wage Jihad. In agreement with this verse of the Gospel, the following Qur’anic verse at the end of Sura al-Fath (Victory), which refers to some other verses of the Gospel as well as the one mentioned above, also states that his community, like him, will be under the obligation of waging Jihad.

    And their similitude in the Gospel is: like a seed that sends forth its blade, then makes it strong; it then becomes thick, and it stands in its own stem, filling the sowers with wonder and delight, so that it fills the unbelievers with rage at them. (48:29)

    In the Torah, there is the following verse:

    The flags of the holy ones are with him, on his right. (Deuteronomy, 33:2) 10

    In this verse, the Companions of the Prophet are described as ‘the holy ones’, that is, his Companions are blessed, righteous, saintly friends of God.

    In Chapter 42 of the Book of Isaiah, there are the following verses:

    Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight; I will put my spirit on him and he will bring justice to the nations. He will not shout or cry out, or raise his voice in the streets. A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out. In faithfulness he will bring forth justice; he will not falter or be discouraged till he establishes justice on earth. In his law the islands will put their hope. (Isaiah, 42:1-4)

    These verses are certain to describe the Prophet Muhammad, who would come in the last phase of human history.

    There are the following verses in Chapter 4 of the Book of Micah:

    In the last days the mountain of the Lord’s temple will be established as chief among the mountains; it will be raised above the hills, and peoples will stream to it. Many nations will come and say, “Come, let us go up the mountain of the Lord, to the house of God. He will teach us His ways, so that we may walk in His paths.” (Micah, 4:1-2)

    These verses obviously describe the Mount Arafat, the most blessed mountain of the world, and the nation of Muhammad, upon him be peace, together with the prayers and praises that would be offered by the pilgrims who would flock there from all climes.

    The following verses are from Chapter 72 of Psalms:

    He will rule from sea to sea and from the River to the ends of the earth.The desert tribes will bow before him and his enemies will lick the dust. The kings of Tarshish and of distant shores will bring tribute to him; the kings of the Yemen and Seba will present him gifts. All kings will bow down to him and all nations will serve him. For he will deliver the needy who cry out, the afflicted who have no-one to help. He will take pity on the weak and the needy and save the needy from death. He will rescue them from oppression and violence for precious is their blood in his sight. Long may he live! May people ever pray for him and bless him all day long.

    May his name endure for ever; may it continue as long as the sun. All nations will be blessed through him. and they will call him blessed. (Psalms, 72:8-17)

    These verses describe the Prophet Muhammad, the Pride of the World, in a very clear way. Since the Prophet David, has a prophet come other than the Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace, who has spread his religion from east to west, to whose name many rulers pay tribute, and whose way so many obey with deep adoration for him, and on whom one fifth of mankind call, every day, God’s peace and blessings? Is there anyone who fits this description other than the Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings?

    The Qur’an mentions in Surah Al-Araf chapter 7 verse 157:

    “Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find mentioned in their own (scriptures) in the law and the Gospel”.

    MUHAMMAD (PBUH) PROPHESISED IN THE BOOK OF DEUTERONOMY:

    Almighty God speaks to Moses in Book of Deuteronomy chapter 18 verse 18:

    “I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and I will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.”

    The Christians say that this prophecy refers to Jesus (pbuh) because Jesus (pbuh) was like Moses (pbuh). Moses (pbuh) was a Jew, as well as Jesus (pbuh) was a Jew. Moses (pbuh) was a Prophet and Jesus (pbuh) was also a Prophet.

    If these two are the only criteria for this prophecy to be fulfilled, then all the Prophets of the Bible who came after
    Moses (pbuh) such as Solomon, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Hosea, Joel, Malachi, John the Baptist, etc. (pbut) will
    fulfill this prophecy since all were Jews as well as prophets.

    However, it is Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) who is like Moses (pbuh):

    i)
    Both had a father and a mother, while Jesus (pbuh) was born miraculously without any male intervention.

    [Mathew 1:18 and Luke 1:35 and also Al-Qur’an 3:42-47]

    ii)
    Both were married and had children. Jesus (pbuh) according to the Bible did not marry nor had children.

    iii)
    Both died natural deaths. Jesus (pbuh) has been raised up alive. (4:157-158)

    Muhammad (pbuh) is from among the brethren of Moses (pbuh). Arabs are brethren of Jews. Abraham (pbuh) had two sons: Ishmail and Isaac (pbut). The Arabs are the descendants of Ishmail (pbuh) and the Jews are the descendants of Isaac (pbuh).

    Words in the mouth:

    Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was unlettered and whatever revelations he received from Almighty God he repeated them verbatim.

    “I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.”

    [Deuteronomy 18:18]

    iv)
    Both besides being Prophets were also kings i.e. they could inflict capital punishment. Jesus (pbuh) said, “My kingdom is not of this world.” (John 18:36).

    v)
    Both were accepted as Prophets by their people in their lifetime but Jesus (pbuh) was rejected by his
    people. John chapter 1 verse 11 states, “He came unto his own, but his own received him not.”

    vi)
    Both brought new laws and new regulations for their people. Jesus (pbuh) according to the Bible did not bring any new laws. (Mathew 5:17-18).

    2.
    It is Mentioned in the book of Deuteronomy chapter 18:19

    “And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not harken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.”

    3.
    Muhammad (pbuh) is prophesised in the book of Isaiah:

    It is mentioned in the book of Isaiah chapter 29 verse 12:

    “And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.”

    When Archangel Gabrail commanded Muhammad (pbuh) by saying Iqra – “Read”, he replied, “I am not learned”.

    4.
    prophet Muhammad (pbuh) mentioned by name in the old testament:

    Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is mentioned by name in the Song of Solomon chapter 5 verse 16:

    “Hikko Mamittakim we kullo Muhammadim Zehdoodeh wa Zehraee Bayna Jerusalem.”

    “His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters
    of Jerusalem.”

    In the Hebrew language im is added for respect. Similarely im is added after the name of Prophet Muhammad
    (pbuh) to make it Muhammadim. In English translation they have even translated the name of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) as “altogether lovely”, but in the Old Testament in Hebrew, the name of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is yet present.

    Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in the New Testament:

    Al-Qur’an Chapter 61 Verse 6:

    “And remember, Jesus, the son of Mary, said, ‘O Children of Israel! I am the messenger of Allah (sent) to you, confirming the Law (which came) before me and giving glad tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmed.’ But when he came to them with clear signs, they said, ‘This is evident sorcery!’ ”

    All the prophecies mentioned in the Old Testament regarding Muhammad (pbuh) besides applying to the Jews also hold good for the Christians.

    1.
    John chapter 14 verse 16:
    “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever.”

    2.
    Gospel of John chapter 15 verse 26:

    “But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me.”

    3.
    Gospel of John chapter 16 verse 7:

    “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; it is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you”.

    “Ahmed” or “Muhammad” meaning “the one who praises” or “the praised one” is almost the translation of the Greek word Periclytos. In the Gospel of John 14:16, 15:26, and 16:7. The word ‘Comforter’ is used in the English translation for the Greek word Paracletos which means advocate or a kind friend rather than a comforter.
    Paracletos is the warped reading for Periclytos. Jesus (pbuh) actually prophesised Ahmed by name. Even the Greek word Paraclete refers to the Prophet (pbuh) who is a mercy for all creatures.

    Some Christians say that the Comforter mentioned in these prophecies refers to the Holy Sprit. They fail to realise that the prophecy clearly says that only if Jesus (pbuh) departs will the Comforter come. The Bible states that the
    Holy Spirit was already present on earth before and during the time of Jesus (pbuh), in the womb of Elizabeth, and again when Jesus (pbuh) was being baptised, etc. Hence this prophecy refers to none other than Prophet
    Muhammad (pbuh).

    4.
    Gospel of John chapter 16 verse 12-14:

    “I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth is come, he will guide you unto all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me”.

    The Sprit of Truth, spoken about in this prophecy referes to none other than Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

    More emphatically and more frequently than any other Prophet, the Prophet Jesus, upon him be peace, gave the good tidings of the Last Prophet, upon him be peace and blessings.

    The Capstone in the Gospel of Matthew

    Jesus (pbuh) said:

    Have you never read in the Scriptures: ‘The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes? Therefore I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce its fruit. He who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces, but he on whom it falls will be crushed.’ (Matthew, 21.42-4)

    The ‘capstone’ mentioned in the verses cannot be the Prophet Jesus for the verses refer to the crushing victories that the followers of the ‘capstone’ will win against their enemies. No people were ever broken to pieces or crushed because they resisted Christianity. Christianity gained ground against the Roman Empire only after it had lost its original identity and been reconciled with Roman paganism. The Western dominion over the world came after scientific thought’s triumph over the medieval Christian view of nature and was realized in the form of a ruthless colonialism. Whereas, Islam ruled almost half of the ‘old’ world for many centuries as a religion in its original purity and its enemies were many times defeated before it. In its struggle with other religions, Islam has always been successful. It is, again, Islam which is on the rise as both a pure, authentic religion and as a way of life, and which is the hope of salvation for humanity more than that, the Prophet Jesus himself alludes to this fact by stating explicitly that the kingdom of God will be taken away from his followers and given to a people who will produce its fruit.

    Second, in a telling detail recorded in a hadith in the Sahih of al-Bukhari and that of Muslim, the Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings, describes himself as the ‘capstone’ completing the building of Prophethood.

    Paraklit, the Spirit of Truth

    In the Gospel of John, Jesus (pbuh) promises the arrival of the Last Prophet using a variety of names:

    But I tell you the truth: It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the ‘Paraklit’ will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. When he comes, he will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment. (John, 16:7-8)

    In these verses, the Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings, is referred to as the Paraklit. Paraklit11 is a Greek word meaning the Distinguisher between Truth and Falsehood. Although Christian interpreters have given this word different meanings such as Counselor (Gideons International) or Helper (American Bible Society) or Comforter (the Company of the Holy Bible), and claimed that it refers to the Holy Spirit, it is impossible even for Christians to establish whether the Holy Spirit has come down after Jesus and done what Jesus foretold he would do.

    If, according to Christians, the Holy Spirit is the Archangel Gabriel, he came many times to the Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings, to bring Divine Revelations. Further, Jesus mentioned and predicted the Paraklit with other different names, but the same function, as is seen in the following verses:

    When Paraklit comes – the Spirit of truth – who comes from the Father, he will testify about me. (John, 15.26)

    I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will bring glory to me by taking what is mine and making it known to you. (John, 16.12-14)

    I will not speak with you much longer, for the Prince of this world is coming. And I posses nothing of him. (John, 14.30)

    Who has come after Jesus other than the Prophet Muhammad, as the Comforter who has comforted human beings against fear of death, against worries about the future, against spiritual ailments of all kinds? As the Helper, who has helped mankind to attain real peace and happiness in both worlds? As the Prince of the world, who has ruled almost half of the world for fourteen centuries, and who has become the beloved of billions? And as the Spirit of truth who testified to Jesus, brought glory to him by declaring his Prophethood against the denial of the Jews and false deification of him by Christians, and restoring his religion to its pristine purity through the Book he brought? What shortcomings do the Western Christians attribute to the Prophet Muhammad, in contrast to Jesus and other Prophets, that, while almost all of the Christians of the ‘Middle East’ believed in him and converted to Islam within a few decades of his death, they persist in their denial of him and offer no justification?

    In the Gospel Mustafa is mentioned with his attributes, in him is the mystery of all the Prophets; he is the bringer of happiness. The Gospel mentions him with his external form and features, and also with his personal virtues and Prophetic qualities.

    In spite of the changes they have been subjected to over time, the Old and New Testaments still contain references to the Prophet Muhammad, only some of which we have quoted. The late Hussayn Jisri found one hundred and fourteen such allusions and quoted them in his Risala al-Hamidiya.

    Note

    In the books of other Prophets, God’s Messenger, upon him be peace and blessings, is mentioned with such Syriac and Hebrew names as correspond to Ahmad, Muhammad and Mukhtar. In the Pages of the Prophet Shu‘ayb, upon him be peace, his name is Mushaffah, meaning Muhammad. In the Torah, he is mentioned as Munhamanna, which means Muhammad, and as Himyata, meaning ‘the Prophet of al-Haram’. In the Psalms, he is named al-Mukhtar, and again in the Torah, al-Hatam al-Khatam. Both in the Torah and the Psalms, he is referred to as Muqim al-Sunna, which means the one who establishes and enforces the Divine way for mankind. In the Pages of Abraham, upon him be peace, and in the Torah, he is mentioned as Mazmaz, and again in the Torah, as Ahyad.

    God’s Messenger himself said, My name in the Qur’an is Muhammad, in the Bible Ahmad, and in the Torah Ahyad. In the Bible, he is also referred to as ‘the Possessor of the Sword and the Staff’. In-deed, among the Prophets who carried the sword, the Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings, is the greatest one, who was also commanded to perform Jihad together with his community. The Gospel refers to him also as the one who wears a crown. What is meant here by crown is turban, and it is the Arabs who have worn headcovers with a wrapper around them since ancient times. Hence, the reference is undoubtedly to the Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings.

    Certainly, Jesus (pbuh) frequently gave in the Gospels the glad tidings that the most significant leader of mankind would come, and mentioned him with some names in Syriac and Hebrew, which mean, as observed by meticulous experts, Ahmad, Muhammad, and Faruq (who distinguishes the truth from falsehood).

    2. Although it does not exist word for word in the present versions of the Bible, it is recorded by ‘Ali al-Qari in his Sharh al-Shifa’, 1:743. However, we read in the Torah, the following verses:

    I will make the son of the maidservant (Hagar) into a nation.(Genesis, 21:13). Hagar, lift the boy up and take him by the hand, for I will make him into a great nation (21:18).

    11. Paraclete is originally a Greek word. According to Webster’s New World Dictionary, it derives from the Greek word parakletos meaning intercessor, advocate, pleader. However, Abidin Pasha, a nineteenth-century scholar from Yanya, Greece, who knew Greek very well and whose works on Greek literature were highly praised by Greek authorities, writes that the origin of Paraclete is piriklitos, meaning Ahmad, the one who is much praised. (Hussain Jisri, Risala al-Hamidiya, 59). We also read in the Qur’an that Jesus predicted the Prophet Muhammad with the name, Ahmad, a synonym of Muhammad (61:6). Christians assert that by Paraclete Jesus means the Holy Spirit, but it is questionable what connection the Holy Spirit has with interceding, pleading or advocating, which, in fact, refer to the main attributes of the Prophet Mu-hammad, upon him be peace and blessings, even though we accept that the word drives from paracletos. Besides, it should also be noted that translators of the Gospels intentionally refrain from writing Paraclete and, instead, they prefer to translate it, but all differently. Also, Jesus gives good tidings of the being to come not only with the name of Paraclete but also with such names as ‘the Prince of this world’ and the ‘Spirit of truth’, and with many other functions, which must, of course, belong to a Prophet, not to a ‘spirit’ or angel.
