The Islamic Problem is Theological; Not Political.
Following is a portion of an email that I sent to Muhammad Zuhdi Jasser and the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD) on May 17, 2022 in response to the whiterose magazine article https://whiterosemagazine.com/jewish-leaders-must-counter-islamist-supremacism/
The related information titled “Son of Hamas Leader Tells The Truth…” was also included. Jasser has failed to respond as of this date:
Mr. Jasser, you may recall that you and I had an Email exchange on September 17, 2018, where I asked how you would actually go about reforming Islam. I hereby submit the following for your consideration on this date of May 17, 2022 and welcome your comments. Thank you.
A Message to the American Islamic Forum for Democracy Regarding the Conflict
- Zuhdi Jasser & American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD) need to first acknowledge that Islam is not a sister religion of Judaism and Christianity and that Allah is NOT Yahweh and that Muhammad is NOT a “prophet” sent by Yahweh.
- Zuhdi Jasser & AIFD need to acknowledge that the “Allah” that he and all other would-be Reformist Muslims believe in still proclaims that Jews and Christians must be destroyed, as written in the authorized Qur’an, 9:030.
- Zuhdi Jasser and AIFD need to acknowledge that the real problem is Theological which is the root of all anti-Semitism and anti-Christianity and not Political Islam that merely follows orders given by the Islamic deity, Allah, and the Muslim prophet, Muhammad.
Therefore, M. Zuhdi Jasser & AIFD need to acknowledge that the true God that they should pray to is Yahweh and the Jesus that they need to also believe in is the Jesus of the New Testament Christian teaching, not the Jesus (Isa’) of Islamic belief.
Until that happens, M. Zuhdi Jasser and AIFD will be following the wrong god and the wrong prophet if they really believe that Allah is the true God and that Muhammad was/is the “last and final prophet” ordained for mankind and that all prophets before Muhammad were Muslims.
As Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, reportedly said in 2007, about Moderate Islam: “These descriptions are very ugly, it is offensive and an insult to our religion. There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it…” https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/tag/erdogan
Thus, Allah is Allah and Muhammad is Muhammad and their characteristics cannot be changed.
All Muslims, Fundamental or Reform, follow a different deity and a different prophet than the Jews and Christians and that is the reason why Islam cannot be considered the true Abrahamic religion as long as they believe that their Allah’s Covenant was made with Ishmael and not with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob regarding the Land of Israel. (Psalm 105:9-11)
For that reason, M. Zuhdi Jasser, as a devout Muslim, and AIFD will always be at odds with Judeo-Christianity by believing that 7th Century Islam is the “true religion” that eventually must prevail over all others; if not by violent jihad then by a reformed “moderate persuasion.”
Son of Hamas Leader Tells The Truth: Free People Should Fight Islam (4 min- 39 sec)
Mosab Hassan Yousef (later Joseph) was born in Ramallah, a city 10 kilometers (6.2 mi) north of Jerusalem. His father, Sheikh Hassan Yousef, was a Hamas leader who spent many years in Israeli prisons. He is the oldest of five brothers and three sisters.
In August 2008, Yousef publicly revealed his Christianity, and renounced Hamas and the Arab leadership, thereby endangering himself and exposing his family in Ramallah to persecution. Yousef has also claimed that his aim was to bring peace to the Middle East; he hopes to return to his homeland when there is peace.
Yousef has stated that despite his conversion to Christianity, he is “against religion”, and does not adhere to any denomination of Christianity. He has stated, “Religion steals freedom, kills creativity, turns us into slaves and against one another. Yes, I am talking about Christianity as well as Islam. Most Christians I have seen, seem to have missed the point, that Jesus redeemed us from religion. Religion is nothing but man’s attempts to get back to God. Whether it is Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, animism, any ism. Religion can’t save mankind. Only Jesus could save mankind through his death and resurrection. And Jesus is the only way to God.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mosab_Hassan_Yousef
