[meaning still lots more violence to go....]
Sura 19 named Mary has two purposes. First, it purports to explain the birth of Jesus and that Jesus or Isu, was actually a Moslem prophet. Second, Christians must be reduced by force and destroyed by Moslems – the 'righteous inheritors of monotheism' – because Christians have rejected the Allah-cult and worship instead a polytheistic conception of God including the idea that God has a son. In Moslem liturgy associating any idol, person or image with Allah or Muhammad [both are likely the same in the Koran], is a sin punished by death and eternal torment.
The objective of this chapter is of course to discredit Christianity. There are no lyrical odes to tolerating the Christians or accepting them as co-equal 'peoples of the book'. The purpose is to mock Christians and their perceived polytheism. History is thus rewritten to portray the Christians as evil wrong-doers who left the cult of Allah and 'strayed' from his or its message. History is also refashioned to 'prove' that Islam is the real 'word' of the Allah-thing – whatever Allah might be-- and that Christians are inferiors who need to be subjugated or converted. In this Moslem historical revisionism, which is accepted by the big brains of the Western world as 'fact' [much as Marxian dialectic is accepted as 'fact'], Mary for example is suddenly the sister of Aaron, the spokesman for Moses who lived circa 1600-1250 BC [the exact dates are in dispute]. The Koran tries to abrogate this mistake by claiming that Aaron was another holy man during the period of Mary's life, though no such historical figure has ever been discovered in any extant literature including the Bible. It is simply a made up Moslem myth.
Jesus was not born in a manger in Bethlehem but in behind a tree outside of Nazareth. Joseph Mary's husband is not present.
Upon birth Jesus immediately began talking, stating in eloquent Aramaic that he was indeed a slave of the Allah.
I did not know that being a slave was a religious expression of freedom.
As reviewed before in this Sura, Islam makes the claim that Christianity is a fraud.
“..the real point in this Sura is that Christ was no God, since the venerable Allah cannot have a son. “They say: “(Allah) Most Gracious has begotten a son!”. Indeed you have put forth a thing most monstrous!” Yes Muslims don't take too kindly to the idea that Christ supersedes Mohammed or can be equated with the male moon deity of Mecca. It is blasphemous.
In this regard Sura 19 relates what should happen to those blasphemous idolators and polytheists, the followers of Christ.
Christians are sinners and evil:
Use violence against them:
Christians will go to Hell:
Arab pagans are to be punished as well for not following the Arab totalitarian Muhammad:
Islamic exegesis is plainly intolerant and supremacist. It is an early pagan Marxist dialectical. Allah rules and only Allah has free-will. Therefore the Allah-thing created Judaism and Christianity as mere phases in the development of Islam. These imperfect monotheisms are supplanted by the perfect form of monodeity submission, founded by Muhammad, the perfect human greater than Jesus or Moses, or indeed any human in history.
There are many problems with the above claims. The most important is that it is historical revisionism and incoherency. The program of Islam does not demonstrate any of the attributes of a religion but simply those of a cult. It is unworthy to accept the Moslem claim that their cult is a religion. This should offend any right-thinking person including ardent Moslem allies such as Western secularists and Marxists who engage in the most hypocritical and ignorant double standard imaginable. They demonize Judeo-Christianity and mock it. But they will accept any and everything told to them by the Muhammadan cult.
