Jesus was Muslim

A new $60,000 advertising campaign by the Washington, D.C.-based Council on American-Islamic Relations that claims on Florida buses that Jesus was a Muslim is drawing protests.

"Apparently they will say anything to try to get people to convert to Islam. What ever happened to honesty?" asked a blogger on IslamInAction.

these crazy muslims are a joke, CAIR is a spinoff of the defunct Islamic Association for Palestine, launched by Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzook and former university professor Sami al-Arian, who pleaded guilty several years ago to conspiracy to provide services to Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Several CAIR staffers have been convicted on terrorism-related charges, and CAIR founder Omar Ahmad allegedly told a group of Muslims they are in America not to assimilate but to help assert Islam's rule over the country.

How can Jesus be a Muslim if Mohammed came after Jesus? I really don't know. Was there muslims before Mohammed?

posted on Jan, 17 2009 @ 01:39 PM
I think maybe what they meant is that jesus was a prophet of God like muhammed,he came after jesus and gave them a new shiny book so technically that overwrites the old dusty book...
Ahh who cares,the only people who would be upset by something as silly as this are hardcore bible thumpers.

The literal meaning of the word Muslim is a person who "submits" to the will of God.

What's the problem, do you think that is the false claim ???

Its silly.

As stated the Abrahamic faiths of Judaism and Christianity pre-dated Mohammed - Peace Be Upon Him.

It is a twist on the fact that much of Islam actually sees many of the Christian and Jewish texts as from God, and right and also see them as Prophets.

A TRUE Muslim will never never refer to Jesus without saying as they do with the prophet Peace be Upon Him. So out of respect I will offer the same.

Jesus is in-fact meant to be returning as in Revelations, and will be seen as a Messenger of God as such by the Muslims when he does.

All Mohammed did was skew the Christian version (which was skewed from his JC teachings anyhow) of Jesus not being the Son of God or god the one to be worshipped, but to reclaim the Judeo tradition of Moses that there is only one God and not to worship False idols. That Jesus was the same almost as Arch angel Gabriel , who gave the message to Mohammed Peace Be Upon him, or even the Prophet himself, a Messenger but not to be worshipped or Idiolised, but to accept teachings and guidance from, one whom God Spoke through, but that God is a separate thing entirely.

Its strange that Islam in a way goes back more to the Jewish Faith than the progression of the Christian Message, and yet they are so Politically Opposed in the world.

This is just the root cause of all Religious problems in the world what these guys have said, reinterpretation of the Truth to fit ones own non god like nature, goals and aspirations.

I know one thing God is not happy with the Channelling Claimed By bush and murder in his name, The Jihadist actions, or the current Jewish actions on the children in Palastine.....

That is not god, and anyone who reads all three traditions can see the truth that where the message is not distorted he supports none of these things in his name.

Kind Regards,


PS really God is of African decent and a Woman so I shouldn't have said He
, just a joke but showing how we all fall, as I did as I typed above, this cultural brainwashing, into a distortion of the true message given to humans.

Wonder what the Muslims would think if the Anti-Defamation League started an advertising campaign stating Muhammad was really a Jew? But then that would never happen because a majority of the world has already been shown to kowtow to all Muslims.

I used to get press releases from this group, they are nothing but pro-terrorist a-------s who milk the system with defamation of character and discrimination suits. They are very militant in Florida, which being both a very racist and very religiously bigoted state gives them plenty to moan about meaning they swarm around press ops like sharks behind a whale boat. Unlike other groups they will not remove your from their mailing list either, they make a point to keep pestering you and sometimes send you multiple mailings every day. Quite frankly, on behalf of all of us with probable Eastern ancestry, they can all f--- themselves. More than once I thought about sending them tickets for free ham sandwiches since they bombarded my email after lied and said I am Jewish.

They are also stupid if they think anyone will fall for that campaign, Jesus, if he actually existed, is oh, about 7 centuries older than Islam. Good Lord!

What the bus ad says is actually -

"ISLAM: The Way of Life of Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad."

So, no, it doesn't say "Jesus was a Muslim" which would be completely retarded.

The word 'Islam' literally means peace and submission to God. So, the bus is telling the truth.

Islam is a religion, fundamentally, about extending the family outward into the community, about creating a community of the faithful, the exact same central theme present in Judaism and Christianity. Both Jesus and Muhammed took their inspiration from Judaism, and though fundamentalists will never accept it, it's a fact that Islam is just Christianity custom-tailored for Arabs. If you had to identify one singular feature of Christianity and Islam, respectively, it would be the same - the brotherhood of man.

The three religions are very, very similar, and they are, essentially, crafted from the same template with small changes to appeal to different regional sensibilities. Over time they have grown farther and farther apart, mostly due to the efforts of the Roman church authority and, more recently, the radicalization of Islam.

Even now, they're more alike than different.

I wonder what the reaction would be if the Jewish community began advertising that Jesus was a Jew?

I think I would like to see that. Some people seem to be uninformed or unaware about the Jewishness of Jesus.

There is a group called Jews for Jesus that does that. They also are trying to convert Jews to Christianity, go figure!

HAHA, some crazy things going on.

Islam is a made up religion based on a moon God, nothing to do with Christ, not even Jesua mentioned in the Koran is Jesus either just because it sounds similar.

Jesus wasn't white, we can at least say that for certain. Jesus wasn't a Christian, we can say that for certain.

"Oh noozz my fairy tale book is better than your fairy tale book" is all this is..

quit looking at fairy tale books for guidance and start looking inward...

imanutter why don’t you look for historical facts for guidance instead of looking "inward" to your fictional imaginary world that you live in, just like mohammed I’m sure you make up history as you like to see it as do the stupid morons that think if you put mohammed’s name on something it makes it muslim
There’s good reason why credible theologians, historians and scholars avoid islam and the koran like the plague, and the statement on the bus fairly well sums it up.

Don't laugh.

Islam is selling a lot of bogus goods. Allah is the same as the God of Judiasm, Christ was a Muslim, Muhammed was a prophet, (when all other genuine prophets performed absolute miracles to prove they came from God), and that the teachings of Islam, which are directly opposed to Judiasm/Christianity, are the same.

Go figure.

Well he certainly wasn't a Christian..

In fact Jesus (if he existed) was a Jewish Rabbi, and not even a well known one at that.

It was the old "rising from the dead" myth, that started it all off.

Seriously... why does it matter? Jesus/Mohammed/etc were and are elaborate plot devices, a mesh of ancient myths and legends traceable back to the very first civilizations.

It doesn't matter where they came from or if they even existed as long as the purpose of their creation lives on: to keep the sheep in place, control the masses.

I was just about to say that. You are right. Alot of people do not realize that jesus was infact Jewish.

Obviously, or what should be obvious, Jesus was born Jewish because Christianity didnt exsist yet!

It always amazes me how when I tell people that he was jewish just how quick they are to say " NO HE WASNT HE WAS CHRISTIAN" then I point out the fact that Christianity didnt exsist when he was born...

I bet that if you put that on a bus, a whole bunch of people would protest and end up just showing their ignorance.
