Palestinian “freedom fighter”? Mujahid fi sabil Allah?
Why would he be locked up? Because, according to Muslims, “Jesus was indeed a Muslim and like the Muslims today [such as Osama bin Laden, Ayman Zawahiri, Mullah Omar, et. al.], called mankind to obey the law of God [sharia] as opposed to the law of man.” In other words, he would have been an Islamic terrorist, out to overthrow “man-made” governments and zealously establishing sharia courts around the world. Well, that certainly does not sound like the Jesus of the Gospels — the one who said “Render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s [physical world], and unto God what is God’s [spiritual world].” Ah, but Muslims don’t believe Jesus said that in the first place; such are man-made interpolations and machinations introduced to distort the Bible — hence the need for the Koran, “Allah’s uncorrupted word.” So, no, Jesus would not have been a sharia-enforcing jihadist. Isa, on the other hand — Islam’s name for “Jesus” — would.
“Muslim extremists claim Jesus Christ would have been locked up in prison,” by Ben Goldby for the Sunday Mercury, December 27:
IF JESUS were alive today, he would be behind bars, Muslim extremists are claiming.
A post on Islam4uk.com claims that the Son of God would be locked up under anti-terror laws, and would have been extradited to Palestine by the British government.[…]
The radical website is run by Anjem Choudary, aged 41, the former UK head of banned Islamist group al-Muhajiroun, and is popular with young Muslims in the Midlands.
Choudary, who once called for the Pope to be assassinated, was secretly filmed at an Alum Rock youth centre in February, preaching hatred against “unbelievers” and calling for violent Sharia law to be introduced on the streets of Birmingham.
At the bottom of the rant on the website, Choudary encourages readers to get in touch with him, and even leaves his mobile phone number.
The message, posted just days before Christmas, says: “We can envisage that if alive in the UK today, Jesus would undoubtedly have supported the struggle of the indigenous people in Afghanistan and Iraq, as opposed to the capitalist driven US-led alliance.
“As such, and being a Syrian or Palestinian refugee in the UK, he would also have been subjected to a loyalty and allegiance test to ensure that he put Britain and its Prime Minister Brown before God. He would also have been, no doubt, interned under Britain’s new terrorism laws.
“Or maybe he would have been kidnapped by MI5 or Special Branch to be flown on one of their notorious rendition flights, then held hostage and tortured like so many other Muslims in Guantanamo Bay.”
Radical preacher Choudary was a central figure in al-Muhajiroun, which was established by his Islamist mentor Sheikh Omar Bakri.
Earlier this year the Sunday Mercury exposed secret footage of a speech Bakri made calling for the beheading of British servicemen, which is thought to have inspired last year’s terror plot in Birmingham.
The website goes on to claim that Jesus was a Muslim and would have been branded a radical by the British government.
“Jesus was indeed a Muslim and like the Muslims today, called mankind to obey the law of God as opposed to the law of man,” it reads…
