* but Gaddaffi’s illiterate profit Muhammad said the same thing 1400 years ago when the Jews, his adversaries, were laughing at his newly invented ‘religion’ and couldn’t find the self professed profit pretender anywhere in their scriptures…

COLONEL Muammar Gadaffi yesterday celebrated the anniversary of the birth of Prophet Muhammad with a two-hour speech in which he attacked the Scandinavian countries for besmirching the Prophet, the Arabs for monopolising the Kaaba and signed off by describing the Bible as a forgery.
* The result of many years of substance abuse & dementia…
Speaking to the mammoth crowd that braved the afternoon heat in Nakivubo War Memorial Stadium after leading the Thuhur (afternoon) prayer, Col. Gadaffi said any Bible and Tora (Old Testament) that does not mention Prophet Muhammad was written by mankind and therefore a fraud.
Inasmuch as the Muslims could not find a single proof in the entire Bible nor a reference or possible allusion to their prophet which they could utilize, they were compelled to accuse us saying, “You have altered the text of the Torah, and expunged every trace of the name of Mohammed therefrom.” They could find nothing stronger than this ignominious argument.
The Bible we have now is not the one that was revealed to Issa [Jesus] and the Old Testament is not the one that was revealed to Musa. Muhammad is mentioned in both (original versions), but the Tora and Bible we have now, there is no mention of him,” the Libyan leader, more known for his controversial statements than his piety, said.
“It means that it (Bible) has been forged. Prophet Muhammad was sent to mankind. Allah wanted mankind to have one religion. The Koran that we have is the only book that was sent by Allah. We believe in the Bible as well as the Tora.”
He said Prophet Musa (Moses) and Issa (Jesus) talked about the coming of Muhammad in the Bible which has been in existence for centuries.
“Issa is mentioned in the Koran 25 times, Musa is mentioned 128 times, Mariam (Mary mother of Jesus) is mentioned 30 times. It is all glorifying and highly respectful. We cannot be Muslims unless we believe in Issa.
We have to look for the Bible and Tora that were sent to Moses and Jesus, but where can you find them? Unfortunately, the holy book that was sent by Allah was written by mankind and forged,” Col. Gadaffi, speaking through a translator said.
* Gaddaffi says the same thing every year. Wonder why it takes him 2 hours…
While Muslims in the West complain about largely trumped-up discrimination, this is life for Christians in majority Muslim areas, where the spirit of the dhimmi laws is alive and well.
Islamic Tolerance Alert: “Philippines’ Islamic city proud to be different,” by Carmel Crimmins for Reuters (via DW)
MARAWI CITY, Philippines (Reuters) – Father Teresito Soganub doesn’t look like a Catholic priest and, from the outside, his cathedral doesn’t look like a church.
In his parish, tucked away in Marawi, the only Islamic city in the Philippines, it’s easier that way.
“To avoid arguments and to avoid further misunderstandings we just plant the cross deep in our hearts,” said the 47-year-old priest, who doesn’t wear a crucifix or a clerical collar and sports a beard out of respect for his Muslim neighbors.
