Salman Rushdie the Sensitive Prophet and Juma Gul

Current Affairs,Christianity,Government
In the busy nightclub district of London two car bombs were discovered that by some good fortune had not detonated. Questions about who is responsible for the car bombs are being hotly debated as police seek to confirm the actual source of the devices. Some say it may be rage over the recent knighting of Sir Salman Rushdie.

Between Danish cartoons and Rushdie’s “Satanic Verses” that have raised the ire of Muslims worldwide and brought down calls for fatwa (Death of those who offend Muhammad), Islam looks like it has a very sensitive and easily offended prophet.

By contrast to Biblical prophets Muhammad seems to be the thinnest skinned prophet of all time. No comedy is intended but in answer to the question of “how many Muslims does it take to protect a prophet” the answer is obviously, “all of them.”

The prophets of the Bible were stoned, jailed, thrown in mud pits, and tortured. The apostles were all murdered and tortured under the most indescribable conditions. Since they were instructed to “turn the other cheek” and not to resist their murderers they actually did more to promote the gospel of Jesus Christ in their death than in their lives.

Conversely the indignant responses of Islam to perceived offences toward Muhammad do little to give him any credence or standing in the west.

To many in the west a real prophet and the God he represents should need little help from religious proselytes to protect them. In Christianity any overt or physical resistance would cast doubt upon such a prophet. Death is not the final step for Christians and at times it may be their death that furthers the gospel. Hatred for the messengers and the message is only hatred for the originator of the message. That is a futility that we don’t need to enter into. God is a great record keeper and nothing will escape his scrutiny in the final day.

It can be argued that the same illiteracy and ignorance that keeps some Muslims from believing there was a “Holocaust” is what keeps them from knowing about their own prophet’s personal history. It is well documented that Muhammad himself thought his visions may have originated from Satan. Only the urging of his wife made him stop short of canning his entire message.

If Rushdie and Danish cartoons enrage Islamists then they would be incensed to learn that hundreds of millions of bible believing Christians also think Muhammad’s message was most certainly satanically inspired. In fact they (Muslims) already are quite filled with hatred for Christians and countries that have Christian churches and leanings to the bible faith.

Because ancient Crusaders were not acting on the scriptures when they invaded Muslim nations they have no defense from the scripture to mitigate their actions. The Quran is a book that calls for violence but even that cannot cover the unbridled vitriol that Muslims now express to the west.

One thing that can’t be ignored is that Muslims have produced no great warriors since the crusades. No one in the west and in many non western cultures believes that terrorists are warriors. They are seen as trouble makers, cowards and misguided individuals and groups that most of us could well live without.

For bible believing Christians the words “Ye shall know them by their fruits” Mt. 7:16 tells us all we need to know about the source of the Quran and the Muslim hatred of almost everyone on earth who will not bend to their will. If the leveling of the Twin Towers and some 8000 other acts of terrorism doesn’t clearly show the fruit of Islam then we are all blind indeed.

The haunting chants from well mosqued villages and scenes of bowing and apparently submissive males praying three times a day does little to offset the pictures of wounded men women and children from around the globe who are clinging to life in pools of blood created by Muslim terrorist bombs.

Such scenes cause all humanity to die a little and is what caused former captive and British humanitarian Terry Waite to say,” The terrible thing about terrorism is that ultimately it destroys those who practice it, slowly but surely, as they try to extinguish life in others, the light within them dies.” Terry Waite, London Guardian, February 20, 1992

During the last week in June 2007 one little six year old boy from Afghanistan rose to teach humanity a lesson that both knights and prophets could learn from.

With a charming and alluring smile that guile could not feign, a boy named Juma Gul turned himself over to Afghan soldiers to thwart a bombing that would have killed both himself and an unspecified number of U.S. Soldiers.

Juma was told the bomb they strapped to his body would throw out a burst of flowers to the soldiers when he pressed a button attached to the device. He sensed that he was being duped and this little boy who picked up junk metal by day to help his impoverished family turned himself in to the Afghan military to get help.

Neither the best diplomatic efforts of the west or the worst hatred of the radical Muslims could have done more to jog the conscience of humanity than this little boy. With no predisposition, religiously driven vitriol or political affiliation one smiling six year old boy stood in the gap between east and west and shamed us all.

It is now a little easier to understand why Christ said, “Verily I say unto you, except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 18:3
