‘Muslim Jesus’ Demands Sharia Law and Jizya Tribute

Time and again, Muslims, especially those in Egypt, project Islamic thinking onto Christians: thus the Coptic church has been accused of smuggling and storing weapons in its churches to take over the nation (when in fact mosques are regularly exposed housing illegal weapons for the jihad); of kidnapping and torturing Coptic girls who convert to Islam (when in fact Muslim converts to Christianityapostatesare regularly beat, imprisoned, and sometimes killed); and even of supporting suicide-attacks when the church speaks of Copts being martyred (because in Islam being martyred so often means actively sacrificing ones life in holy war).
Now a well-known cleric in Egyptthe same who insists that Muslim husbands must hate their non-Muslim wiveshas just proclaimed that Jesus was against the idea of separation of church and state and that he supported the idea of jizya, the Koran-mandated tribute conquered non-Muslims, or dhimmis, are required to pay their overlords, with willing submission, per Koran 9:29.
Sheikh Yusuf Burhami, the most visible leader of Egypts Salafi movementwhich, since the ousting of the Brotherhood, has become the primary Islamist party imposing Sharia in the new constitutionrecently issued an Arabic-language fatwa arguing that the biblical statement attributed to JesusRender unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and unto God the things that are Gods. (Matt 22:21)could not, as widely held by Christians, have meant that Jesus supported the separation of church and state, because, in Burhamis words, a separation between state and religion contradicts the texts of the Koran.
By way of example, Burhami quotes the Koran in his fatwa, including verses like Indeed, the matter belongs entirely to Allah (Koran 3:154), which mainstream Islamic exegesis holds as meaning all earthly mattersall lawsmust be decided by Allah, hence the totalitarian nature of Sharia law.
Asserts Burhami: Its impossible for the Masih [Messiah, Jesus]peace be upon himto call for the separation of state and religion, as meaning that politics are to be governed without the Sharia of Allah.
Instead, according to the Salafi leader, the true Jesusthe Muslim one, Isa, who is a supporter of Shariamade that assertion to confirm that conquered populations must pay tributejizya; or, in the context of Jesus discussion concerning the image of Caesar on a coin, that 1st century Jews were obligated to pay tribute to the Romans.
Thus, by rendering tribute to Caesar, Jews were alsoas there is no separation between religion and state according to Burhamirendering unto God what is Gods, since it is God (or Allah) who calls on them to pay tribute, or jizya. That, according to the Salafi party of Egypt is what Jesus meant.
In the backdrop of Burhamis fatwa are growing calls to make Egypts Christian Copts pay jizya to the state, as they historically did, as the Koran demands, and as vigilante Muslims are currently forcing them to do through violence.
Koran 9:29 calls on Muslims to fight and subjugate the people of the book (Jews and Christians) until they pay jizya [tribute] with willing submission and feel themselves utterly subdued. If followed to the letterand of all Muslims, Salafis most seek to follow the letter of the Koranalong with paying tribute, Copts would also be required to feel themselves utterly subdued, that is, far from being equal citizens of Egypt, they would be relegated to third-class status.
Meanwhile, if Muslims like Burhami are projecting Islams worst traits onto Christians (and onto Christ), Westerners are projecting Western civilizations best traits (ironically born of Christian teachings)including tolerance and pluralismonto Muslims and thus incapable of believing the ugly reality of Christian suffering under Islam.

Of course Jesus was Muslim. So were the Patriarchs and Moses.
Defend the faith, defend the truth, or lose it.
I much prefer the Jewish understanding of that Rabbi from Nazareth. But I likewise believe the Arab/ Muslim understanding of the Book / of the Hebrew and the Christian sacred writings is rife with error. I am more inclined to believe the serpent in the garden Genesis chapter 3 was more like their god Allah than any other reflected in Scriptures.
Pretzel logic and outright blasphemy against the One True God.
“Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’”
All Jizya should be paid in lead.
...a separation between state and religion contradicts the texts of the Koran.
There is a non-rational part of me that wants this fight right now, right here. It’s the same part that silently cheers when muslims kill muslims. I want them all dead. Now.
The serpent in the Garden, is not simply more like their like their god Allah, the serpent IS their god, with a small "g"
Now wonder the Joooz! killed them all./s
One cannot slander anyone by speaking the truth. Truth is an absolute defense against slander. Thus, if I were to say that Muhammed was an epileptic pedophile with delusions of grandure, it would not be slander. But if I were to say that he also humped goats and rattle-snakes, it would probably be slander.
Lead is very cheap. It must be paid in lots and lots of lead.
I think I can do that.
