Australia: "Jesus is not the son of God, just the support act…"

Da’awa Downunder:

Australian billboards claim Jesus for Islam, but could you run a billboard proclaiming “Jesus Christ is Lord” in Saudi Arabia?

No, of course not. Nor could one post anything about Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, atheism, or agnosticism. Why? Because Saudi Arabia is not a free society. Why? Because they enforce Sharia. And Sharia forbids the propagation of non-Islamic faiths or the display of their symbols.

Muslims here are taking advantage of rights to freedom of speech, religion, and conscience that they will destroy where they are able to impose Sharia. Put that on a billboard. “He’s not the son of God, just the support act,” by Aaron Cook for the Sydney Morning Herald, May 28 (thanks to JW):

Christians in Sydney will have their core beliefs challenged by provocative advertisements due to appear on billboards and buses in the next month.

The ads, paid for by an Islamic group called MyPeace, will carry slogans such as ”Jesus: a prophet of Islam”, ”Holy Quran: the final testament” and ”Muhammad: mercy to mankind”.

In a free society we should be allowed to run ads that read “Muhammad was a mass-murdering serial rapist, a bandit and a slave trader.”


A phone number urges people to call to receive a free Koran and other Islamic literature.

The organiser of MyPeace, Diaa Mohamed, said the campaign was intended to educate non-Muslims about Islam. He said Jesus was a prophet of Islam, who was to come before Muhammad. ”The only difference is we say he was a prophet of God, and they say he is God,” Mr Mohamed said. ”Is it thought-provoking? Yes, it is. We want to raise awareness that Islam believes in Jesus Christ,” he said.

Mr Mohamed said he hoped the billboards would encourage Christians and Muslims to find common ground. They were not intended to downgrade the significance of Jesus. ”We embrace him and say that he was one of the mightiest prophets of God.”

No, it just downgrades Christians brutally and severely, so that they and other unbelievers “feel themselves subdued” as dhimmis.

And by the way, Islamic eschatology does teach that Jesus will come back. But before we “celebrate” that “common ground” in “interfaith dialogue,” it says he will come back to break all the crosses (Sahih Bukhari 3.43.656, among others), abolish the jizya arrangement that allowed non-believers to continue to exist, and “fight the people in the cause of Islam” (Sunan Abu Dawud 37.4310). And after Jesus kills, Jesus will die, and the Muslims will pray over his body (also 37.4310).

MyPeace plans to extend the campaign, funded by private donations, to television.

This is delightfully blunt, though of course, such sweeping historical revisionism is fundamental to Islam’s teachings:

The Anglican Bishop of South Sydney, Rob Forsyth, said it was ”complete nonsense” to say Jesus was a prophet of Islam. ”Jesus was not the prophet of a religion that came into being 600 years later.”

But the billboard was not offensive, he said. ”They’ve got a perfect right to say it, and I would defend their right to say it [but] … you couldn’t run a Christian billboard in Saudi Arabia.”

The bishop said he would pay for billboards to counter those of MyPeace if he could afford it, and ”maybe the atheists should run their billboards as well”.

A spokesman for the Australian Islamic Mission, Siddiq Buckley, said the campaign would increase awareness of the positive facts of Islam. ”I would be looking at this as a good opportunity to explain what we mean.”

  1. Sheik,

    Thank you for your vigilance. What you do is incredibly important. The opportunity to know what is going on around the world (particularly English speaking and other western nations) on a daily basis is a real service in the battle. And a battle it is. Like I said before, you are the daily dose before I go to bed and as soon as I wake up (American East Coast Time). Please keep it up. Do not slumber or sleep. You and your work are valued and appreciated.

  2. The koranimals are blaspheming the Christian faith and why shouldn’t Christians run a billboard with “Muhammad was a mass-murdering serial rapist, a bandit and a slave trader.” except in the PC/MC Australia you cannot because the koranimals are a protected species.

  3. * the koranimals are a protected species.

    Their protection will be annulled by the God they mock and blaspheme against, along with the enablers and protectors.

  4. Or “Tell us the truth about Bukhari 7:62:64.”

    That’d do for starters.

    Plenty more where that come from.

    “Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is the antichrist who denies the Father and the Son.” (1 John 2:22)

    ISLAM: THE RELIGION OF ANTI-CHRIST

    [Qur’an 19:88-89 And they say: the beneficent has taken to himself a son. Certainly you make an abominable assertion!

    Note: Islam has a satanic witness of hate for Jesus Christ the Son of God.

    1 John 5:5 Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

    1 John 5:10 He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son.

    Note: Mo-ham-mad called God the Father a liar.]

  6. “Siddiq Buckley said the campaign would increase awareness of the positive facts of Islam. ”

    Well that must be good, because in all the time I’ve been studying the facts and history of Islam, I haven’t found one positive fact.

    You have to hand it to Muslims: they certainly know how to promote
    Islam, to put a positive spin on what must be the most evil ideology on earth.

    Also the most unbelievable ideology. The idea that we were all originally Muslims, when Islam wasn’t invented until way after most religions were firmly established would surely give pause for thought.
    But apparently not. Many, especially the far left loons, are prepared to respect, nay even revere, Islam’s most ludicrous claims.

    Maybe Julia should employ Muslims to promote her carbon tax.

    @Rossco, better still a billboard saying

    TRUE ISLAM!

    Bukhari 7: 62:64
