Then why smuggle a forgery? Surely a forgerer puts his forgery together where he intends to do the forgery, therefore, negating the need to smuggle and risk arrest?

Why would he bother to mention Jesus if he was a myth? He was born during the time Christianity was new and spreading. There were people alive that knew Jesus and witnessed His death. There also those alive who saw Him after the resurrection. He could have interviewed eye witnesses.
"And having said this, Jesus smote his face with both his hands, and then smote the ground with his head. And having raised his head, he said: "Cursed be every one who shall insert into my sayings that I am the son of God."
This gospel prophesies the coming of Muhammad and shares many core beliefs with Islam. Mentioning Muhammad by name seems to be an obvious attempt at deception as none of the other gospels or prophecies ever mentioned an upcoming messenger of God by name. None of the approx. 24,000 Biblical manuscripts support the Gospel of Barnabas, including those who significantly antedate the Qur'an, nor does this late work itself have any ancient manuscript evidence. The earliest copies date back to the 16th century A.D., and with its additional obvious anachronisms and historical errors (like sailing to Nazareth), it is believed by both Christian and secular scholars (and some Muslims such as Abbas el-Akkad) to be a circa 14th century pseudepigraphical work. 
The X-RATED PARADISE OF ISLAM
In this article I shall describe the Islamic Paradise or Jannat which was invented by Prophet Mohammed to bribe the Arabs into committing hedious crimes by promising them materialistic things which they couldn't obtain in the harsh desert. The paradise contains six important items: beautiful virgins, young boys, water, wine, fruits and wealth.
To prove my point I have taken verses from the Koran and quotes from the Hadiths.
