THE “LIONS GATE” , THE GATE JESUS WAS PREPORTED TO PASS THROUGH WHEN HE ENTERED JERUSELUM
Jews have inhabited the Holy city for 3000 years. That is a thousand years before the appearance of Jesus on the scene, 2000 years ago, and then, six and a half centuries later, Mohammed appeared. Mo. claiming the other monotheistic religions had it wrong, started his career of being the “Prophet Who Killed”, (a lot ). It is important, when comparing Christianity to Islam, to keep in mind that where Mo used the sword to either convert or kill, accepted tribute of the booty his gang culled in murderous raids across the Arab peninsula and personally put victims to death. Jesus, who had no gang, never raised either a sword or his hand, won the world with his ideas. A MOSK STANDS ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT, WHERE THE JEWISH TEMPLE HAS RESIDED A THOUSAND YEARS BEFORE THE COMMON ERA.
Yes; the old testament of the Christian Bible is full of massacres and murders. Yes; 1400 years ago Christians tried to regain possession of Jerusalem through the crusades. Yes; there were massacres involved and much violence initiated by the Christian hordes. With this in mind, one can point to a comparison of the progenitors of the religions. Christ, (of the New testament) never raided caravans, never murdered anyone and never kept captive women as sex slaves or sold anyone into slavery. Christ’s message was to “love thine enemies as thyself”. As the spiritual center of the Christian religion,
Christ left a man of peace as the model for those who followed him. Mohammed, on the other hand, left a murdering, raping, thief and warrior as an example to follow. Read the article linked above to flesh out the picture of Mohammed the prophet of Islam.
Unabashed bitchin, due to the chilling affect of political correctness one doesn’t hear the amount of carping one would expect in a robust democracy. I am not the cook, but I am presenting this little morsel for your enjoyment. Hope you feel a little purged afterword’s.
