Quran Burning – Upside Down The World Is Turning
At the end of the day as well as the beginning, you’ve got to get your news regarding matters of importance from somewhere, and an ideal place in my opinion is here at Your Friendly Neighborhood Pimphop.com, and here is why.
In the mainstream media releases, there is much discussion and debate over a Florida Pastors call to burn The Quran, Islams Holy Scripture, as a recourse for September 11, 2001 attacks in America and to add fuel to the growing right wing Christian Right fight against Islam, which they appear to classify as a religion of evil and terror.
While thinking about what I wrote yesterday on the subject of xenophobia and Facebook, I believe that I may have directed my energies in the wrong place, as the people who use the technology are more at fault than the actual technological services and it’s providers themselves.
I would just be as bold to say that it seems that in the news,
elderly and middle age Caucasian Americans seem to have the most to say against anything that is not in line with traditional
Red Blooded Christian American values.
Using a bit of media magic for the sake of this discussion, these images are sure to generate some strong emotions for many who view them with their own preconceived and indoctrinated notions, to the extent that wars have been started over the ages simply through the use of these two character images in stories.
Both of these figures interestingly enough have been somewhat elusive as they are both rumored to exist or have existed somewhere in the Middle East
while on Earth, without much genuine first hand account witnessed sightings.
The brain boggling question is as to whether or not most honest and knowledgeable biblical scholars, archeologists, and anthropologists would agree with as to what an accurate depiction in regards to features and style of dress would be the most accurate depiction according to the story of Jesus Christ as told by the Bible New Testament.
This point is made to simply bring light to the fact that the Quran and the characters in it, are in fact the same exact characters in
The Bible, including frequent mention of Jesus Christ.
In Islam, Jesus (Arabic: â€Ž, Nabi Isa) is considered to be a Messenger of God who was sent to guide the People of Israel (banÄ« isrÄ’Ä«l) with a new scripture, the InjÄ«l or Gospel.
The Qur’an, considered by Muslims to be God’s final and authoritative revelation to humankind, mentions Jesus twenty-five times. It states that Jesus was born to Mary (Arabic: Maryam) as the result of virginal conception, a miraculous event which occurred by the decree of God (Arabic: Allah). To aid in his ministry to the Jewish people, Jesus was given the ability to perform miracles, all by the permission of God rather than his own power. According to Islamic texts, Jesus was neither killed nor crucified, but rather he was raised alive up to heaven. The Qurâ€™an states that he will return to Earth near the day of judgment to restore justice and defeat al-MasÄ«á¸¥ ad-DajjÄl (“the false messiah”, also known as the Antichrist) along with Imam Mahdi.
With this said, we can see the dangers that xenophobia (fear of foreigners & strangers) can pose, and the only solution is through the opposite of
Quran and any book burning, which is diligent reading and learning.
Just my opinion and,
A different perspective to consider.
