A brief note on Nationality, Religion, and the Question of the Muslim Immigrant

A brief note on Nationality, Religion, and the Question of the Muslim Immigrant
 
Abraham, the founding father of ancient Israel, was not a Jew by birth. He was an” immigrant,” a Chaldean from the land of Ur/Babylon (Modern Iraq). Abraham became a Jew and the fountainhead of the Abrahamaic faiths: Judaism, Islam, and Christianity. Jews, Christians, and Muslims claim him as both their spiritual and physical father.
 
Abraham, the immigrant from what is known today as the modern Iraq and the Hero of the Jews, Muslims, and Christians, just like the founding fathers of the United States of America were illegal aliens and undocumented workers. Yet, Abraham would become the greatest immigrant who has ever graced human history. He would also become the model of religious piety and faithfulness.
 
This message is for my Evangelical Christian brothers and sisters, those who call themselves children of Abraham and Abraham their father, and those who claim this country as their own–and no one else’s– should love all children of Abraham. The Muslims are also the seed of Abraham, and they are your brothers and sisters! Love them, care for them, and extend kindness and hospitality to them!

      • 6Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

        7“If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.”

        8Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.”

        9Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
        (The Gospel of John 14:6-9,The Bible ) (The Injil)
        Celucien,
        Do you now hate me because I tell you the truth?

  1. In Christianity, everyone becomes a Christian by choice. We are not born Christian.
    Not so in Islam.
    A person has no choice, and virtually all Muslims believe that.
    Almost all Muslims believe in Honor Killing of children who leave Islam.
    A Muslim cannot question the legitimacy of Muhammad’s Prophetic calling.
    All of these and much more mean that Islam enslaves people by the threat of death.
    Anyone who supports Islam is guilty of supporting these ideals.
    Islam is antithetical to democracy.
