Muslims do not believe in the resurrection of Jesus because they do not believe Jesus died. They do not believe Jesus was crucified, but was taken to heaven by Allah. The death and resurrection of Jesus is the most central doctrine of the Christian faith. Therefore, it can never be said in truth that Christians and Muslims have a common faith. Some Muslims are divided in opinion on the resurrection of the dead. A few Muslims believe in a spiritual resurrection, but not a physical resurrection. The Quran say that Allah has the ability to and will resurrect all the dead. Muhammad did not resurrect from the dead. The Quran promises that Muslims in Heaven will have physical resurrected bodies, so that they might enjoy, as rewards, the pleasures of the flesh, including sexual relations. The Bible does not promise physical, sexual relations for resurrected Christians. Muslims believe that all Non-Muslims (including Christians and Jews) will be resurrected in bodies for Hell and torment.

“When we die, our soul appears before God on Judgement Day.
Sura 3:185, “Every soul shall have a taste of death: And only on the Day of Judgment shall you be paid your full recompense. Only he who is saved far from the Fire and admitted to the Garden will have attained the object (of Life): For the life of this world is but goods and chattels of deception.”..

“Jabir reported that the Prophet of Islam said: “No good works of yours can ever secure heaven for you, nor can they save you from hell — not even me, without the grace of God.”

“Abu Huraira related that when the verse, “Cause thy near relatives to fear,” was revealed to the Prophet of Islam, the Prophet arose and began to proclaim: “Oh people of the Quraysh, and you sons of Abdul Manaf, and you Abbas, son of Abdul Muttalib, and you, Safiyyah my aunt, I cannot save you from the punishment of the Day of Resurrection. Take care of yourself, O my daughter Fatimah; you may use my property, but I cannot save you from God. Take care of yourself” (Bukhari).

“Abu Huraira reported that the Prophet of Islam said: “No one of you will enter Paradise through his good works.” They said: “Not even you, O Apostle of God?” “Not even I,” he replied, “unless God cover me with His grace and mercy. Therefore be strong, and morning and evening, nay every moment, try to do good.”

“The belief in the day of Resurrection is an essential aspect of the Muslim faith. All believing Muslims must adhere to the belief that Allah (swt) created all life as per His will, and He will cause all life to die. Furthermore, He will then bring all the dead back to life when He wishes. This rebirth will be the final day of Resurrection for humanity where all will stand before Allah (swt) and account for their deeds in this world”

Commentary: Muhammad also said that the majority of people in hell are women. Good works can not get a person to Heaven, nor will evil deeds prevent a person from entering Heaven. It is all just what Allah decides in his will. Unless you are a martyr for Allah, no one knows for sure if you go to Heaven until the Judgement Day. Martyrdom is the only sure means of Allah’s grace.

The Quran and other Islamic writings do describe Jesus as a man perfect and sinless. In fact, Jesus is more holy than Muhammad. But the Jesus of the Quran is not the Son of God, and Jesus was not crucified for the sins of the world. Muhammad said that Jesus was taken by Allah to Heaven and another person was crusified on the cross. This also means that Jesus in the Quran did not resurrect from the grave. The Jesus of the Bible and the Jesus of the Quran are not the same person. Textbooks will give Christian children the impression that the Islamic Jesus and the Christian Jesus are the same person in order to have the Christian student accept Islam as a legitimate religion.

That they said (in boast), “We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah”;- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not:-
Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise;-
—Qur’an, sura 4 (An-Nisa) ayat 157-158[1]

The Hadith indicates that one of Jesus’ disciples volunteered to go in his place, and so Allah made him look like Jesus.

”Don’t scare anyone. But once you gain ground then movee ahead. You must utilize as many people as possible who may be of use to us.”
–Joseph Stalin to future Communist dictator of Hungary Mattyas Rakosi, December 5, 1944.

It really isn’t too hard to understand what is happening in the Middle East if you watch the facts.

1. Jordan’s King Abdallah, who President Barack Obama just visited, is clearly telling us what’s going wrong: that the Muslim Brotherhood is dangerous and so why is the United States supporting it? Presumably, this is what Abdallah told Obama.

2. U.S. policy is now escalating support for a Muslim Brotherhood regime in Syria and the Syrian rebels increasingly have open Brotherhood leadership.

3. Repression is gradually escalating in Egypt with arrests of moderates, Islamists being sent to the military academy, and many more measures.

Regarding Jordan, Jeffrey Goldberg’s has done an extremely valuable profile of Abdullah. The Jordanian monarch is telling Western visitors that their countries are making a big mistake by supporting the Islamists. He complains that the U.S. State Department is ignoring his complaints and that U.S. officials are telling him, “The only way you can have democracy is through the Muslim Brotherhood.”

He responds that the Brotherhood wants to impose anti-American reactionary governments and that his “major fight” is to stop them. No margin may be left for relative moderate and pro-American states between a Sunni Islamist alliance led by Egypt and including Turkey versus a Shia Islamist alliance led by Iran says Abdallah and he’s right. The only difference, Abdallah explains, between the Turkish and Egyptian regimes are their timetables for installing dictatorships. Egypt’s new president, says the king, is obsessed with a hostile view of Israel.

Here’s the delicious irony! Last August the Jordanian Prime Minister Fayez Tarawneh launched a ferocious personal attack on me. Why? Because I said that the Sunni-Shia battle was going to replace the Arab-Israeli conflict. Well, that’s what his king just said! LOL.

Meanwhile, while President Barack Obama was love-bombing Israel during his visit, U.S. policy was helping to install a Muslim Brotherhood supporter as the putative next leader of Syria. Obama’s strategy is, with appropriate adjustments to the national scene, the same as his disastrous policy in Egypt.

“Recently Robert Spencer interviewed former Pentagon Sharia expert Stephen Coughlin, who spoke at our inaugural AFDI event at CPAC in 2010, on his ABN show. They discussed the pitfalls of “interfaith dialogue,” a trap that Jews and Christians frequently fall into. Spencer explains about Muslim/Christian dialogue:

I am all for dialogue between Muslims and Christians when it is honest and not based on false pretenses. There doesn’t seem to be any use to dialogue that ignores difficulties and points of disagreement rather than confronting them. They won’t go away if ignored. I discuss the genuine prospects for dialogue and its pitfalls at length in my book Not Peace But A Sword, which will be published next week by Catholic Answers.

One thing that must be recognized is that for many Muslim spokesmen and leaders, dialogue with adherents of other religions is simply a proselytizing mechanism designed to convert the “dialogue” partner to Islam, as the Muslim Brotherhood theorist Sayyid Qutb explained: “The chasm between Islam and Jahiliyyah [the society of unbelievers] is great, and a bridge is not to be built across it so that the people on the two sides may mix with each other, but only so that the people of Jahiliyyah may come over to Islam.”

In line with this, 138 Muslim scholars wrote to Pope Benedict XVI, inviting him to dialogue. The title of the document they sent to him was A Common Word Between Us and You. Reading the entire Qur’anic verse from which the phrase “a common word between us and you” was taken makes the Common Word initiative’s agenda clear: “Say: ‘People of the Book! Come now to a word common between us and you, that we serve none but God, and that we associate not aught with Him, and do not some of us take others as Lords, apart from God.’ And if they turn their backs, say: ‘Bear witness that we are Muslims’” (3:64). Since Muslims consider the Christian confession of the divinity of Christ to be an unacceptable association of a partner with God, this verse is saying that the “common word” that Muslims and the People of the Book should agree on is that Christians should discard one of the central tenets of their faith and essentially become Muslims. Not a promising basis for an honest and mutually respectful dialogue of equals.”

Both the Muslims and the Israelis know that in the Quran and in practicing Islam, it is the will of Allah for a Muslim to break any treaty that obstructs the growth of Islam. Also, a treaty may be made to protect Muslims that are in danger for a time. Non-Muslims do not have the respect necessary for a Muslim to honor any word or treaty given to them. However, the appropriate dualism is expected. Telling lies to other Muslims is against Allah’s will. Rules of lying and treaty making are not the same in the practice of Islam for Muslims as for non-Muslims.

If the Israelis know this truth about Islam, why do they make treaties with Palestinians. The Israelis make treaties to demonstrate to the world of nations that they are civilized people. They make treaties to gain military support and aide from the Unites States. Muslims make treaties with Israel in order to break them and then appear to be the victims to the world. The Palestinians then receive military support and aide from Islamic Nations.

The first peace treaty ever made by Mohammad with non-Muslims was with the Jews of Medina which he quickly broke when it was to his advantage. And as always, Muhammad proclaimed that the Jews broke the treaty first. He repeated this strategy with Mecca a few years later.

9/11 in U.S. History Textbooks

A Review of the History of 9/11 in High School Textbooks

After reviewing selected 9/11 sections of the textbooks, Modern World History, An American Vision (Modern Times), Give Me Liberty (An American History) and Modern World History (Patterns of Interaction), being used by the Norwin High School or planning to be purchased by the Norwin School Board, the following conclusions are submitted to the Board of Education.

In the above listed textbooks, the histories that are written about the attacks upon the United States of America of September 11, 2001 are shameful misrepresentations of the actual details of that infamous day in our American history.

The dishonorable rendering of history found in the above textbooks can be described in these ways: omissions, propaganda, sanitations, whitewashings, political correctness, indoctrinations, confusion of facts, false conclusions, misinformation, and bias.

Omissions: The actual specific details of the accounts of the massacre of human lives that day are contained in less than five paragraphs, and in one textbook less than ten sentences. The Muslim names of the attackers are omitted along with their backgrounds and preparations for the attacks. The significance of this horrific act of aggression upon innocent civilians of the United States on sovereign soil by foreign enemies is not mentioned. Lacking are the racist, anti-Semitic, reasons for targeting the World Trade Center. Also, the radical Islamic religious hate for America as the “Great Satan” is without mention. The words Muslim or Islamic are never used in any of the direct descriptions of 9/11 in the above textbooks. The heroic attempts to regain control of Flight 93 are left silent. In one textbook, Flight 93 is given one sentence. “The fourth plane crashed into an empty field in Pennsylvania” Modern World History (Patterns of Interaction) p.656 Excuse me, people going 500 miles per hour upside down were driven into the ground.

Propaganda: Included in the sections giving interpretations of the events leading up to 9/11 are the usual excuses and standard talking points of radical Islam given as cover for their terrorist attacks. For Example: “Bin Laden was especially outraged by the presence of American military bases in Saudi Arabia and by American support for Israel in its ongoing conflict with the Palestinians.” Give Me Liberty: an American History p.1170 Doubts are raised about the strategic decisions and responses (unilateralism) of the United States to these attacks, while the planners and attackers are given an aura of having a noble cause for their actions. Their halo is couched in so-called offenses suffered on their part by the United States in the Middle East.

Sanitations: The brutal details of the box cutter take over of the hijacked planes, and the atrocious deaths of the people inside those planes and buildings hit by them are given no voice to ears that were not yet born on 9/11. The women and children murdered are allowed no expressions of their terror of that day. Descriptions of terrified burning people jumping from windows and crashing on roofs below are erased out. There is no description of the fiery flames spread by aircraft fuel that caused the crushing implosion of concrete and steel down upon firefighters and policeman. Did you know there was a child daycare center in the World Trade Center?

Whitewashings: The courageous rescue attempts, the spontaneous volunteerism, and the acts of American kindness that followed are presented, as if, these could somehow turn this cruelty of human evil into something wonderful that united all Americans.

Political Correctness: Muslim and Islamic, are words never mentioned in the history of the attack, but found only in one or two sentences several sections and paragraphs later. The home countries of the terrorists are not recorded. One textbook Modern World History, p. 657 uses the word Arab that is at best an ethnic attempt to avoid any religious connections to the motives of the murders involved. The word Jihad is never printed. The direct descriptions of 9/11 never use the word terrorism, but later connect terrorism only to Al-Qaeda, and never refers to it as an Islamic group.

False Conclusions: The student is given the impression that this is just one of many types of terrorism that have happened in our country over many years, so no big deal. The descriptions and details of these other terrorist attacks are given more ink then 9/11. And one textbook falsely gives the opinion that Americans have come to accept terrorism as a modern reality.

Confusion of Facts and Examples: The comparison of 9/11 to Pearl Harbor is deceptive. Hawaii was not even a State at the time of the Japanese attack. The world was at war with our participation anticipated by many. Some had even predicted the attack on Pearl Harbor. The attack on Pearl Harbor was a military aircraft attack on a military base.  9/11 was the ultimate surprise attack from an enemy of non-uniformed soldiers using commercial airplanes as bombs. That tactic was at that time far off the radar of American homeland security.

Bias: The homeland security reactions after 9/11 (Patriot Act) are stated as sometimes extreme and a violation of human rights and civil liberties by Modern World History pp. 657-658.  One textbook, Give Me Liberty: an American History p.1170, stated, “The Bush Administration quickly blamed Al Qaeda.” Students are left to think that our government was reacting irrationally without evidence.  Not one photo of the fallen heroes of 9/11 is pictured, but Osama Bin Laden is put in the student’s face twice. The American Vision: Modern Times p.810 p.817

Conclusion: The parents of students in schools today lived through 9/11, and they know many of the real details that present the true history of what happened that day. But the students now reading these textbooks were infants or not yet born on that day. Therefore, it is an injustice to present to them a history that so distorts their perspectives and makes them vulnerable to future propaganda. These histories also dishonor the soldiers who died to bring justice to the perpetrators of one of the most evil acts inflicted upon Americans in history.  Finally, in the context of 9/11, these textbooks are not accurate history nor are they memorials to the sacrifices of Americans that day, but in fact salt in our wounds.

The Islamic Nations and Middle East Muslins do not want peace or a peace treaty with Israel. What they do want is the end of the State of Israel. To understand this in a historical, visual, graphic way, watch the below youtube.
