New Jesus Book Is Written By A Muslim
The U.S. Alphabet media has introduced Reza Aslan as a “religious scholar” but they have failed to mention that he is a devout Muslim Jihadist, a lie by omission. But then what can one expect from a pro-Muslim-Anti-American media.

One will immediately notice the subtitle “Jesus of Nazareth”, not Jesus the Christ.
Reza Aslan, is author of the new book called, “Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth” . He has been interviewed on a host of American media outlets in the last week or so. Riding high on a media publicity wave, the book has surged to #2 on Amazon's list.
Let me make this very clear from the get go: “Zealot” is not a historian’s report on Jesus as it is portrayed my friend. It is a Muslim Jihadistabout Jesus right out of the Quran-- yet the book is being peddled as objective history on national TV and radio. Why is this, is the American media stupid? No! The American media are Pro Islamic Nazis, that’s why. No one could ever be that ignorant. Or could they???
The first clue is his name “Aslan”, while not proof of anything except that he is Arabic; it should however be worth further investigation. Oh that’s right, to profile or not to profile that is the politically correct question. But then, there is the second clue, the text of the book, its content is right out of the Quran, one cannot deny that. That’s why I say the media is Pro Islamic Nazi. Pro Islamic obviously, and Nazi because if one has ever studied the Quran/Hadith one would be hard pressed to tell the ideology from Mein Kampf/The Third Reich.
“Zealot” is nothing but a fast-paced demolition of the core beliefs that Christianity has taught about Jesus for 2,000 years. It is Islam; it is clearly the teaching of the Quran, not in any way a historical account of Jesus Christ.
Aslan’s Islamic beliefs as in all Muslims, affect his entire life, including his indoctrination about Jesus. But this is not being disclosed. “Zealot” is being presented as objective and scholarly historical document, not as it actually is—at best a Muslim’s opinion about Jesus and the ancient Near East, at worst a work of fiction.
Its conclusions are long-held Islamic claims—namely, that Jesus was a zealous prophet type who didn’t claim to be God, that Christians have misunderstood him, and that the Christian Gospels are not the actual words or life of Jesus but “myth.”
This by the way is right out of Islamic history. Muhammad was sold on the ideology of Islam by the god Allah, by convincing him that Christianity and Judaism were corrupt. So fundamentally Islam will not stand on its own, it only exists on the claim that Judeo-Christianity is corrupt. And then the real sticky one is that most of Islamic history can be disproved by independent history and Archeology while the opposite is true of Judeo-Christianity most of it has been proven, the rest is yet to come…
These claims are not new or unique. They are fourteen hundred years old. Sadly, readers who have listened to interviews on NPR, "The Daily Show," Morning Joe Huffington Post or PMSNBC may pick up this book expecting, or worse yet, believing it is an unbiased and historic report on Jesus and first century Jewish culture. (I will let my Jewish friends address Aslan’s statement on PMSNBC that, “there were certainly a lot of Jewish terrorists in first century
.” Someone should ask Aslan why the Hadith tells
a story about Jesus asking Arabs if they are his followers, and their reply of “yes
we are Muslims”. Note: Islam did
not exist until 610 AD; 577 years after Jesus arose from the dead and ascended
into Heaven. But then there is no truth
in Islam only deception… Palestine
In case one should be deceived by Aslan’s claim to be a Christian. First, for one brought up as Muslim to convert to Christianity is not a choice it is a miracle. And second, he would be higher up in the hit list of Islam than I am. For a Christian to say on Nation wide TV that the New Testament is a myth is not only denouncing Christianity he is committing blasphemy. If he said that about the Quran he would be killed on the spot.
Note: A little known secret about Muslims. From birth they are taught deception. In Arabic it is called Taqiya or Taqiyyah’--- Islamic deception. I call it (true lies), there is just enough truth in what they say to deceive the ignorant. And that my friend is what is at the core of “Zealot”.
As an Op-Ed Christian writer of Islamic Studies for more than 22 years, I cannot imagine penning a so-called objective biography of Muhammad and then concealing my conflict of interest on national media interviews. But then I’m not a Muslim.
In world history there are no religions more violently and anciently opposed than the crusading, fighting, blood-shedding rivals of historic Islam and historic Christianity. All Muslims and Christians hold aggressively oppositional views—particularly about Jesus. National news coverage of “Zealot” has blatantly ignored this historically factual conflict of interest completely. They assume he is a Christian because he alludes to it by saying his wife and his mother in-law are Christians. Or that he became a Christian as a small boy, nothing about his Muslim parent’s reaction. As a small boy he was brought up as a Muslim.
“Zealot” is written with the self-assumed authority of a groundbreaking revelation from a historian. In reality, it is a Muslim Jihadist fabrication about Jesus—from an adherent to the religion that has been in violent opposition to Judeo-Christianity for 1,400 years.
Aslan informs us on national TV that we cannot trust the Gospel of Mark for example –“because it was written 40 years after Jesus’ death”. He then chides us to trust his new book, written almost 2,000 years after Jesus death and resurrection. Moreover, if he is gleaning his information from Islamic history and a Muslim point of view, which he certainly is…that my friend didn’t even begin until 610 years after Jesus death, look who’s calling the kettle black here. The truth is the truth my friend no matter where you find it.
I believe in Aslan’s right to hold and propagate any opinion he wants to no matter how false. It’s a right that, ironically, Christians do not have in any Muslim country anywhere in the world.
My concern is that national media coverage should be truthful and forthright about this conflict of interest, just as it would be if I—a Christian author—wrote a book about Muhammad. You can bet your sweet bippy that I would be shredded in the media forthwith and posthaste.
One should ask, where is Aslan getting this so-called ‘new’ information about Jesus? The only religious document that is newer than the New Testament is the Quran; it is more that 600 years newer. But is that a justifiable reason to castigate a document that has in everyway been proven historically accurate by using so-called new information from a newer document that has been proven against every other historical document secular or otherwise to be false.
Pouring praise onto “Zealot” as new information about Jesus, without explaining its origin and its author’s devotion to a combating religion as well as its true source, is blatant bias and is the dissemination of nothing but misinformation. This same bias would be unthinkable if the Christian and Muslim roles were reversed here.
With its riveting demolition of Jesus, “Zealot” will continue to attract interviews—some from reporters who want to see Jesus deconstructed. Many more interviews will come from reporters who are simply Ignorant and don’t understand that Reza Aslan has a Trojan Horse in this race, well…maybe an Arabian camel.
He is not an objective observer, but, to use his own title, a zealot, with religious motivation to destroy what Western culture has believed about its central figure for thousands of years. In many ways, this conflict is larger than Christianity and Islam. It is a conflict of Western and Middle Eastern foundations. These are great and important debates that we should welcome, but let’s be honest about our motivations, sources, positions, and conflicts of interest as we dialogue.
I have written many articles about Islam’s prophet Muhammad, all of them right out of their own Quran and Hadith. One doesn’t have to skew the truth to expose what Islam is really about. Muslims don’t tell the public what the Quran really says, but one can always read it for themselves. If Westerners would do just that, it would change the world.
Let’s hope reporters in future interviews will, mention the glaring conflict of interest in this Islamic opinion of Jesus. It is a whole lot less objective than my educated views about Muhammad, as a Christian.
“Zealot” is not a new work from a historian. It is a sophisticated presentation of fictional views that Muslims have held about Jesus for more than 1,400 years.
