Newsweek about to Publish Eighth Jesus Cover

Poor Muhammad hasn't made any covers, mostly because he has a team of dedicated followers who would go on a killing spree if Newsweek dared put him on a cover.

But don't let this trick you into thinking that some religions are different from others.

David, can you help me with this: 1. Apostles, Prophets, Disciples, al gave of written word confirming the life and existence of Jesus. Why is there no proof of Mohammed? No one else wrote about him, saw him, prove he existed no trace of his lineage, etc. who begat him? @. All muslims that i know ALWAYS tell me that the Quran is taken from the Bible.If that were true,why is there NEVER a Muslim that mentions LOVE in the quran? and last, but CERTAINLYnot least important, 3. how do I deprogram my little brainwasjhed teenager that went off to college and became mudslim? Thank you.

I think this is unacceptable and disrespectful and its about time a law is passed to treat religion equally in the media, the media are like weak bullies who only pick on people who wont beat them up and Islam really reminds me of the mafia you can't leave it alive and they will kill anyone who gets in their way, but hey what can we say it seems to work for them what a good example the media is setting.

Kangaroo said...

Hmm.. well maybe because your Churches allow Jesus to be drawn in them and so whats the big deal?

Jesus that Christians paint is a hippy, no doubt and I doubt that mainstream Christians today even respect his authority.

Osama Abdallah said...

Awwwwwwww LOOLLLLLLL @ David Wood :)). I love the Norwegian Jesus Christ that you posted! :) That makes you now more related to him than me ;) wink wink.

I guess Jesus Christ needed that new cosmic surgery for Christianity's Sales and Marketing department LOL! :) Or should I say HOLY DEPARTMENT? :)

CristoTeAma said...

Have any of you noticed how muslims miss the main point of these articles? I.E kangaroo and Osama, i mean is that a biological thing related to the so many cousins marriage they have, so their brain doen't work properly or it's because their religion makes them let's say non smart, then again you have to be no smart to believe in Islam so it's odd...

sara said...

@ Osama Abdallah and Kangaroo
Why are you making fun about this I thought you guys should be down at newsweek killing reporters or sending death threats because the quran says all prophets are the same and that is what you would have done if it was mohammad right?
but oh yeah I forgot mohammad is greater then Allah actually Mo is Allah.

agrammatos said...

I must be confused. I thought no devout, non-hypocritical Muslim would ever mock a prophet regarded so highly in Islam? What does that make O & K??? Hmm...

TAREK said...

Hello dear brethren!
And thank you Dr. David for everything you and your team are doing.
THE HOLY BIBLE SAYS SEARCH DIRT IN HOUSE FIRST BEFORE YOU CHECK IF THERE IS ANY DIRT IN YOUR NEIGHBOR'S HOUSE.

pro. Ossama Buffoon Abdullah you are back again to the all fashion of insulting when you have no answer to all the issues that keep coming up from all the angles in islam.
You have refuse to tell me in which wells the sun set I mean the number of the well of course.
Anyway I hope you tell me the number for today so that i can go and see it too.
By the way in which sect are you because according to suna Abu Dawud 4597 you will not go to heaven if you do not belong to the right one. By the way your prophet said there will be 73 sects and only one will go heaven. I think there more than 73. Never mind that is not my problem please just tell us in which one do you belong to?
And please tell us the meaning of sura 15 aya 2. Translate the first and we will see if you worship the real GOD. I think pro Ossama Buffoon Abdullah you have alot into your hands to deal with now so please stop insulting and do your job as a pro.

Dr, David prof. Ossama BUFFOON Abdullah is what we call here in Europe a compose liar and the way you shouldn't be surprised because his allah allows him to lie.sura 3 aya 28

MAY THE PERFECT PEACE OF OUR BLESSED LORD JESUS CHRIST BE WITH US ALWAYS AMEN.

Andish said...

Look at Osama mock Jesus! Hypocrisy at its best, I guess these top apologetics don't respect Jesus as much as they claim. Clear evidence that Osama is untrustworthy. If you try to get people to look into Islam you have truly failed. Why would you even try to talk to Christians about Islam if you can't even respect Jesus?

You borderline worship Muhammad anyway.

Royal Son said...

Osama - a simple question - Would you joke around in a similar fashion had it been Mohammad on the cover of Newsweek?

Dragostea said...

Osama...dear Osama: were you trying to be funny in your last 2 posts? all i smiled at was the "i have no life" kind of joke you tried to make... Seriously dude: you might wanna work on your humor side.

Maybe you realized the first comment was not as funny as it sounded it your head and you tried a second comment: FAILED AGAIN... miserably i might add...

If i didnt see you, based only on your comments, i would have said that you are a 10 years old, friends deprived little boy, partially because of the nonsense you say, the wanna be jokes you try to make, the "intelligence" you show in your "refutations" and lastly because of all the "LOL"-s you write (just like Justin Bieber fan little girls). Do you also like laying on your belly in bed, with your legs crossed and texting "LOLLLL" to all your imaginary friends ?

My friend, get a life: Apologetics is not for you

Kangaroo said...

I did not make fun. I simply said that its no big deal for you guys to illustrate your version of Jesus since he's all over your Church walls in drawings. Anyways, its different when they insult the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him because he is the one that only Muslims accept, and stands out from all the other religions. So insulting him is insulting everything about Islam, and he is the final and greatest prophet messenger of all times.

I do get upset when soneone insults the true Moses or Jesus (pbut) of Islam, however when they insult the Biblical version it feels different because Christianity has painted a different version of them. Well, thats my honest take.

TAREK said...

To Kangoro
I think you are dreaming. If you can just use your brain for a minute you will notice that you have just insulted your false prophet the paedophilia. He put his hand on the copy of the HOLY BIBLE and sworn by it Suna Abu Dawud 4434. He was false and of course you know very well how he died. Sura 3 aya 55 compare to your post tells me that you do not even follow JESUS whom you have in your quran. You worship a criminal a murderer a paedophilia brief you worship an agent of the devil; I support this with the fact that muhammad (hell be on him) recited the satanic verses which is true. You worship a god who isn't sure of anything sura 15 first word of aya 2. There is no know place in THE HOLY BIBLE WHEREE YAHWEH SPOKE WHILE USING THE WORD PERHAPS OR MAYBE OR PROBABLY. Your god has some question to answer when CHRIST JESUS COME BACK FOR JUDGEMENT.
Please kangoro respond
MAY THE PERFECT PEACE OF JESUS BE WITH US ALL AMEN

Deleting said...

Roo, I believe you were honest.

But lets look at your second statement:
Roo "I simply said that its no big deal for you guys to illustrate your version of Jesus since he's all over your Church walls in drawings."

Actually it's stained glass but I get your point. The point you fail to grasp is that Newsweek is a SECULAR publication, not christian. David's point was any drawing of Mohammad would draw death threats even if they drew him in the best positive light.

Christians who take Jesus's admonition of 'those who take into captivity will be taken into captivity. Those who live by the sword will die by the sword' seriously and don't threaten to kill anyone.
Yet you want people to believe islam is peaceful. hmm.

Next Roo said, "Anyways, its different when they insult the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him because he is the one that only Muslims accept, and stands out from all the other religions. So insulting him is insulting everything about Islam, and he is the final and greatest prophet messenger of all times. "

Prove it because your hadith, koran and sunnah say otherwise.

Last Roo said, " I do get upset when soneone insults the true Moses or Jesus (pbut) of Islam."

Good, but Mussa and Isa ibn Miriam are not real people so you would get upset over a delusion.

But you want to get upset, fine. Isa is the biggest douche in the koran because he knows Allah has inadvertantly started a religion by accident and that he'll have followers. Furthermore, he knows that the final judgment day is a long, long way off but yet doesn't stand up to Allah and say 'No, this needs to be straightened out."

Think about it Roo. Mussa in the hadiths makes Mohammad go back and renegotiate for less prayers a day. Mussa could stand up to him. Why couldn't Isa? Why couldn't Mohammad?

Zack_Tiang said...

How about someone draws an image of Jesus (same look as any typical drawing of Jesus) and then labels it "Jesus of Islam" or "Son of Maryam"?

Will Muslims around the world protest and kill over these images?


Personally, I doubt it.

Kangaroo said...

@ Deleting
Moses (pbuh) was more familiar with the children of Israel, and their constant laziness in worship and other social problems. He wanted to advise the Prophet (pbuh) about it.

And please refrain from insults, it doesn't help.

@TAREK

Thank you for showing your ignorance and manners. I won't be responding to you, now find a muslim site that explains these hadith and LEARN, please.

Zack_Tiang said...

Come to think of it.... Quran and the Bible may differ in their depiction of who Jesus is and His true identity...

But both supposed draw the same Moses... Why aren't Muslim protesting against all those movies or drawings of Moses?

And why does Muhammad stand out? Doesn't the Quran call Muslims to treat all prophets the same? So it doesn't matter if no other religion stands out. Muslims are supposed to treat all prophets the same.

Clearly hypocritical.

Roo said, "Moses (pbuh) was more familiar with the children of Israel, and their constant laziness in worship and other social problems. He wanted to advise the Prophet (pbuh) about it.

But yet Allah's wasn't familiar with the children of isreal????
Aren't jews the worst of all people along with Christians?

Doesn't that put muslims on the same level with us?

It must because what you've just said is Allah's not familiar with muslims either.


And Isa ibn Miriam is a douche. That's actually more a fact than insult.

TAREK said...

Hello Brethren!
@Kangaroo
I think when any muslim get to hear the truth, the first thing he or she will come up with is get to the islam website and learn or you do not know arabic. What I know as true is above your knowledge.
And next time please use your brain before you call anyone ignorant. By the way I am in Europe please tell me where is the sun setting today so that I can go see it please? Thank you in advance. I can understand why you do not know where you are. Because JESUS' mother in the quran is the sister to Aaron. History is against you. Please think carefully. Which islam website represent accurately islam? If I have lie in my previous post please point it out? Stop crying.

Turn to JESUS THE PRINCE OF PEACE PLEASE.
MAY GOD BLESS US ALL AMEN.

@ Kangarooo

If Mohamed is the greatest Prophet then how come according to9 Islam Jesus is a Prophet and the Messiah and he is still alive seated at the right hand of Allah?

Wouldnt that make Jesus greater than Mohamed? After all Mohamed is dead. And i thought all Prophets were equal? Muslims are so confused! Your just indoctrinated and incapable of objective reasoning or critical thinking. If Mohamed were alive today he would be hunted down and executed for crimes against humanity!!!

And I detest Mohamed. He was a vile, hypocrite, child molesting, rapist, serial killing cult leader. I would have to say he was one of the worst people in history.

Stormy said...

@search for truth - is that why michael h. hart decided that, in his book titled "the 100: a ranking of the most influential persons in history", he selects muhammad as number 1?

also, when you said "I thought all prophets were equal", where did you get that idea from? when in fact the qur'an says in 2:253 - Those messengers - some of them We caused to exceed others."

Search 4 Truth said...

@ Stormy

Do you know who else is on that list of influential people? Take a guess. This is one of the oldest and dumbest arguments like to make.

Karl Marx
Genghis Kahn
Adolf Hitler
Joseph Stalin
Mao Zedong

Influence can be a positive influence or a negative influence. So to imply that because Mohamed is at the top of a list of influential people does not mean that he was a positive influence! As you can see Hitler, Stalin, and Mao Zedumg were on there. Thank you for revealing how incredibly ignorant and gullable you are!


Hart asserted that Muhammad was "supremely successful" in both the religious and secular realms. He also believed that Muhammad's role in the development of Islam was far more influential than Jesus' collaboration in the development of Christianity. He attributes the development of Christianity to St. Paul, who played a pivotal role in its dissemination.

Now how can Mohamed be greater than the Messiah who is still alive when Mohamed is dead and rotten kin his grave. Your Isa defeated death, Allah chose him to live! So now using logic and reason, LOL, how can Mohamed be greater than Jesus who is still alive according to Islamic doctrine for over 2,000 years!

I will be waiting for a rational response! Which I am sure I will be waiting forever!

Also Jesus never enslaved anyone, raped anyone, had sex with a child, never tortured anyone, stole anything or murdered anyone! So you are delusional! Mohamed was a vile and despicable person!

@ Stormy

Also lets take a look at what percentage of the worlds most influential people were Christ and compare it to Muslims! OK? How about that? LOL!

iation % in
List
Catholic 31%
Anglican/Episcopalian 13%
Jewish 7%
Atheist 6%
Greco-Roman paganism 6%
Chinese traditional religion/Confucianism 5%
Lutheran 5%
Russian Orthodox 4%
pre-Nicene Christianity 3%
Platonism 3%
Islam 2%
Hindu 2%
Buddhist 2%
Presbyterian 2%
Zoroastrian 2%
Manicheanism 2%
Quaker 2%
Unitarian/Universalist 2%
Calvinist 2%
Jain 1%
Jansenist 1%
United Brethren 1%
Congregationalist 1%
Dutch Reformed 1%
Egyptian paganism 1%
Mongolian shamanism 1%
Taoism 1%
Baptist 1%
Sandemanian 1%
Protestant (denomination unknown) 6%
unknown 5%

Christians were approximately 35%

JEws were over 3 times as many Muslims at 7% even though there are only about 14 million Jews in the world.

And finally 2% of them were Muslim, and there are 1.5 billion Muslims in the world. So it seems to me that Islam has failed to create any influential people in its 1400 years. You would think if Islam were so beneficial certainly some worthy would have sprung from it? Right?

So now tell me why has Islam been such a failure?

search 4 truth said...

WOW I was in such a rush yesterday I cant believe the amount of mistakes I made. Sorry it's my busy part of the year. Christians are 74% of the total of most influential people in the world.

While Jews who are less than 1% of the worlds population are 7% of the worlds most influential!

And the sad pathetic Muslims are 2% of the worlds most influential people while they have a world population of 1.5 billion.

Muslims are complete and total FAILURES!

ISLAM IS VILE AND MAKES YOU STUPID!


CHRISTIANS 74%
Jews 7%
Muslims 2%

Now use your islamic math and figure it out! LOL

Sorry for the errors previously I dont have a lot of time for such stupidity! PEACE!

Stormy said...

@search 4 truth - why do you feel the need to be so rude? is that what christianity preaches? i made a simple comment and corrected an incorrect statement of yours, and yet you respond with impressive aggressiveness.

search 4 truth said...

@ Stormy

I understand you have to try and attack me now. I dont hate you, I p0ity you. And obviously my statement was accurate after all. How can you say that it was incorrect when I clearly refuted you.

this is why I am aggresive. Because i dont have the patience for the clear delusions of Muslims! Some people take the softer approach and will let the Muslims go round and round in circles. I have delt with muslims for so long that I dont have the patience to deal with your games!

Look at what your doing now. Your still clinging to the idea that what I said was incorrect. When it is obviouis to anyone capable of objective reasoning or critical thinking that a man called the messiah who is still alive after 2,000 is a far greater and more important Prophet than one that died 1,400 years ago.

And your Isa is going to return. So tell me how in the world can you believe that mohamed was greater than Isa? You have to be delusional!

I also showed you how Islam has been a complete and total failure and that 74% of the worlds most influential people have been Christians, while only 2% of Muslims! So dont try and demonize me for presenting the evidence.


Also if you want to see aggressiveness and fascism, bigotry, and oppression! You should read the Quran, hadith and tafsirs.

And I am not Christianity. Was Osama Bin Laden Islam? I am just a man. And I am not threatening you, I am talking to you.

You want me to show you what Islam teaches?


Quran (3:151) - "Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority"


Quran (9:29) - "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued."


Quran (9:30) - "And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!"


Quran (9:73) - "O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination."


Quran (9:123) - "O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness."


Quran (48:29) - "Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard (ruthless) against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves"


Bukhari (8:387) - Allah's Apostle said, "I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah'. And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally."

Muslim (1:30) - "The Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people so long as they do not declare that there is no god but Allah."


So please dont try and play these games!

Well since it's ok to Joke...Here you go kangaroo and Osama. Heres how much we reveer your prophet:

The prophet Mohammed heard one of his wives was leaving him, so he rushed home where he found her on the carpet in front of his tent. He sat down beside her and said, “Why are you leaving me, wife?”

“I heard one of the other wives say that you are a pedophile!” she answered.

Mohammed thinks for a minute and responds, “That’s a mighty big word for a 6-year old!”

1Ki 18:27

Stormy said...

@search 4 truth - your incorrect comment - and i am going to copy and paste this - "And i thought all Prophets were equal".

i corrected this by saying that there is a verse in the qur'an that says, "Those messengers - some of them We caused to exceed others."

and as usual, you take those verses out of context. how surprising.

qur'an 2:190 - Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loves not transgressors."

qur'an 9:6 - And if any one of the polytheists seeks your protection, then grant him protection so that he may hear the words of Allah . Then deliver him to his place of safety. That is because they are a people who do not know.
