Would Jesus approve of Mohammed?

Muslim apologists and Muslims addressing an Infidel audience frequently claim that Jesus is revered in Islam. The apologists are generally ignorant or naive: "Can't we all get along because we worship the same God?" But when believing Muslims say this to non-Muslims they are practising taqiyya, or more accurately kitman, for they are not telling the whole truth. The Muslim "Isa" is not Jesus. First, Isa is not the Son of God, who was crucified and rose again, but merely a prophet. Second, Muslims cannot possibly revere both Jesus (the real one) and Mohammed. One or the other must be the perfect example for mankind - they cannot both be.

I returned after a long absence to Answering Islam, one of the first sites I looked at when I started to question Islam shortly after 9/11, and stumbled across the first of a series of articles by Keith Thompson called "Would Jesus Approve of Mohammed?" The author demonstrates how far Mohammed falls short of the standards set by Jesus:

Would Jesus approve of how Muhammad behaved? Did Muhammad demonstrate that he was of God by following Jesus' command of showing mercy with respect to murder? In the Sunan Abu Dawud we discover that Muhammad did not show mercy at all. Instead, when Muhammad was informed that his followers would kill people for merely talking negatively about him, Muhammad brushed the murders off as if they were nothing - showing he was not a merciful man and that his fruit was not of God.

The hadith is quoted about the killing of the pregnant woman who "slandered" Mohammed, along with the story of the torture of Kinana. Thompson goes on to explain how the command to kill apostates is directly at odds with the mercy shown by Jesus:

In John 6:64-70 when many of Jesus' followers turned their back on him did he order his remaining followers to assassinate them or plot their deaths? No he did not. However, he did let them know that there was an apostate among them, Judas. Did he order them to kill the future apostate? No he did not. >>>more

Anyone, Christian or not, with a smattering of Biblical knowledge, will see the contrast between Jesus and Mohammed. Yet many of the chattering have no such smattering, and will blithely, stupidly and dangerously drivel on about how all religions have good bits and bad bits and about the three Abrahamic faiths and why oh why can't we just get along.

And to answer the question: would Jesus approve of Muhammed? No. Would he forgive him? What do you think?

 In my opinion, I don't think so Jesus would approve Mohammed  because war and violence is not the solution for every problem. Just imagine, If Jesus asked his followers to assasinate those who against sure a big havoc would occur. He believe that forgiving, doing good and mercy could change the people..And i do believe that this can change the world when all of us practice like him...

In Islam, according to the history, during Mohammed time, there is a lot of jihad. For them, its to spread their religion and preserve their existence...

I dont just believe in war and violence can settle the problems. But sadly, thats is what people thinks war could settle it..

But nowdays, its all about power. People want to conquer other country so that can fullfill their needs...

Nazarene Lies
Or: Helix, The Cut
Or: Once, Twice, Diss, Dice & Slice
Or: Kill Bill: Gates
Or: Taking Hadrian's Curse To, And Off, The Wailing Wall
Or: Malchus & Malachite Green* With Envy
Or: Death Of A Suleiman
"Scholars" from the Church of Latter Day Feints, Thrusts & Parries have reported the discovery of "some red tablets [actually yellow or gold in colour] in the vicinity of the Red Sea which cast Christ in a new light on the spectrum."  While mainline churches have dismissed the find as hopelessly apocryphal, if not anachronistic, a prominent Muslim cleric in the West, speaking without attribution, expressed an opinion that it should be studied further, given that it suggests that "Jesus, like any good Muslim, wasn't one to pussyfoot around." 
And it came to pass that the one whom Nietzsche of Frederick's of Hollywood called "the Nazarene" decided to shake the dust from his feet at the gated community of Gaza in which there dwelled a Robert Louis Stevie Wonder Gates, the one-eyed King of Affirmative Acton who had been absolutely corrupted by the absolute power of tenure and political correctness.  Upon finding the pearly gates of Gate's locked, the faithful servant and large gent, Crowley, turned to his master and asked, "Lord, whom should I sayeth calleth?"  And the Lord answered, "That may or might be 'Who' - I think. But tell him that it is I, the Lord of Hosts, and that there will be Hell to pay if we are not admitted as honoured guests, anointed with light sweet crude oil and so on and so fortheth."
Then from the bowels of the dwelling came the large shrill voice of Gates: "Yo! Honkey, cracker, peckerwood racists!  Dost thou have any effing idea what effing hour it beith?!?
And the Lord spake, "I come like a thief in the night. And dost thou address me like the dissing Dost Mohammed, whom I sent to his God like a soldier in Afghanistan?  Show us some respect or I shall open up a wineskin of whupass upon thy hindquarters!  And show us tired troubadours some tea and sympathy and taste or I'll lay your soul to waste!"
Thereupon the great and vain Gates strode upon his porch like he was walking onto a stage, lit a stogie like a fool, and replied, "Cool your jihads; I'd have come to the door sooner but I could not help but tarry to get another kiss on my butt from yo Mama. She can't get enough of me, the greatest salesman in the marketplace of ideas." 
And the Lord sayeth, "Thou hast eye, but do not see.  Thou hast ears, but do not hear.  Fiend, Loman, countryman, (the Lord then winkethed at his large gent-at-arms) Lend me you ears!"
Snicker-snack, paddiwhack, went the vorpal blade, giving up to the prophet some skin and cartilage, as Crowley tossed the bloody offering into his master's knapsack which had already runneth over with other various and sundry trophies.
"I dub this," intoned the Nazarene, "the Auricle of Delphi Horseless And Remorseless Parts. And hold thy tongue and giveth me not the 'stink eye' with thine orb, lest they offend me and I pluck out them and other body parts which thee will miss."
Neither chastened, nor chagrined, Gates the Confessor of Racial Injustice, spat out, "I call upon my nasty and deep sorceress, the widow of the scrivener, Naboo Cough, Vera Lee, who hath begot my only son, Sue, to heal me. To thy man servant I say, 'Live by the sword; die by the sword'."
"Heal thee?  Feel me? Touch me rainments; kush mir in tuchus.  Mark, Matthew and Luke my words or thee will be a deaf, dumb and blind Yid and I'll play a mean game of pinball with your cajones," retorted the anointed one. "Verily I say unto Crowley, die by the sword and thee shall lie [lay?] with 72 virgins'  To thy witch and bitch: Vera Lee, I say unto thee, pack up thy old kit bag of tricks and troubles and jinn no more." 
*  Like perhaps Roy G. Biv, who some experts in autism claim is "on the spectrum," I still remember this fluorescent mineral on display under ultraviolet light at colllege.
