Why should Christians follow Muhammad? the answer lies in the beard

The following advert appealing to Christians appeared in the Weekend Post, 28 March, 2015 of my city. It illustrates the Islamic doctrine of Takiyah (dissimulation.

The religion of Jesus

Followed law of Moses – fasting praying regularly, prostrate one’s face (like Muslims do).
Fought for justice and truth, using force when necessary (John 2:15).
Prayed to God directly without intermediary.
Greeted with peace (as Muslims do).
Wore a long beard and long robe (as Muslims do today).
Never ate Pork.
Never celebrated Christmas.
Called his people to one almighty God.


The following advert directed at Christians appeared in the Weekend Post, 28 March, 2015.


To understand the dissimulation (taqiyah) of Islam, one needs to know about “Jihad” (Struggle). It consists of three stages:

First, non-violent “stealth” Jihad, where it pretends to accept all religions. In this first stage, Muslims are in the minority with no political or military power. This is the present situation in the West.

Second, “defensive” Jihad – violent or non-violent – which does not necessarily mean that Muslims are defending themselves against violent attack, but against verbal criticism (as I am doing which could get violent) or pictorial criticism (cartoons, always violent).

Third, “offensive” Jihad, where Muslims take control, as in the violent Muslim takeover many centuries ago of the Christian Middle East and Christian North Africa; and in modern times, in Syria and Iraq by ISIS, faithful followers of the Qur’an. Muslims in modern Western democracies don’t need to overturn governments by violence; their relatively large birthrate will do the trick, where the violence will – inevitably – begin once Islamic Sharia law rules.

The advert above belongs to “stealth” Jihad. All the things said in it about Jesus are true, but many true things – indeed the very heart of Christianity – have been stealthily omitted. Let us ignore three asinine ones on the advert’s list: yes, he never wore a cross around his neck, yep he never celebrated Christmas (don’t Jews celebrate birthdays?), and, for sure, he wore a beard and a dress.

What exactly does the advert omit? Here are a few: He is the Son of God, the second person of the triune Godhead, 2. He died – on a cross, 3. He shed his blood as a substitute for sinners. 4. He rose from the dead. 5. He said he is the mediator between his Father and man: “I am the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father but by me” – including all Muslims. The Qur’an rejects all of these.

Here is a selection of mild verses from the friendly, peaceful Qur’an, which says what awaits Jews, Christians and other non-Muslims when Islam is a slam dunk.

Don’t befriend Jews and Christians:

Qur’an (5:51) – “O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does bretenot guide the unjust people.”

Qur’an (5:80) – “You will see many of them befriending those who disbelieve; certainly evil is that which their souls have sent before for them, that Allah became displeased with them and in chastisement shall they abide.”

Qur’an (9:23) – “O ye who believe! Choose not your fathers nor your brethren for friends if the take pleasure in disbelief rather than faith. Whoso of you taketh them for friends, such are wrong-doers.”

Fight Jews and Christians and subdue them:

Qur’an (9:29) – “Fight against such of those to whom the Scriptures (the Bible) were given as believe neither in God nor the Last Day, who do not forbid what God and His apostle have forbidden, and do not embrace the true Faith, until they pay tribute out of hand and are utterly subdued.”

As for other religions or secularists, slay them:

Qur’an (9:5) – “When the sacred months are over slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them. If they repent and take to prayer and render the alms levy, allow them to go their way. God is forgiving and merciful.”

Lastly, the advert includes as one of Jesus’s good Muslim qualities the use of violence when necessary, and cites John 2:15, which says “He made a switch of cattle-fodder rushes, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables.”

Swish Swoosh. Clink, Clanck, Ba-a-a-a, Mooo, Ouch.

Enough already!
