One Response to “United Jewish Council’s Legislative Breakfast to Celebrate 40 Years of Service”

  1. Mohmed Ali says:

    Hello¸

    I am a messenger of God in accordance with the holy Quranic verse 28:59. It is my bounden duties to protect all the communities in the world.

    Now¸ a film under the name and style of innocence of Muslim has been published by Google and Youtube against prophet mohamed and Muslims which is creating trouble between Islam and Christians brother hoods in he world which is against the holy Quranic verses 5:82¸ 20:129 and 130 and as such no Muslim can harm Christians.

    The Christians and Jewish can go through the Quranic verse 7:157 on the basis of holy Torah and Bible wherein prophet Mohamed has been mentioned as prophet¸ after Jesus¸ but the same fact was not followed by the two communities of Jewish and Christians in the world and accordingly Jewish and Christians are divided into various group till a Day of Resurrection according to the Quranic verses 5:13 and 14.

    God has also created palestine to create trouble to jewish till a Day of resurrection in accordance with Quranic verses 7:163 and 167.

    We conducted a survey and research that why Christians and Muslims are not.
    cooperating with each other in the world? We found the following.
    answers.

    1. Christians are well educated and research scholars to research each.
    and every issue brought to them, but unfortunately Satan occupying not.
    to apply their mind to analyse that how Jesus was killed and crucified.
    when God has given him five favours and one out of it is he brought.
    forth dead.

    2. Jews are not accepting our prophet Jesus that they tried to kill.
    Jesus, but Christians are following Jews and depend upon their advice.

    3. Christians fail to realise Matthew 14:23 and Quranic verse 5:14 and.
    9:31 that and when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a.
    mountain apart to pray. If Jesus is God or a part of God then why did.
    he pray?

    4. Christians are not interpreting Matthew 27:11-14 to mean that Jesus.
    wanted to die on the cross for the redemption of mankind and for the.
    forgiveness of their sins. If so, then why did he ask to turn away.
    that cup from him? Why did hr cry out while on the cross?

    5. Muslims are accepting Jesus as prophet and his mother Mary, but.
    Jews disbelief and uttering against Mary, a grave false charge (that.
    she had committed illegal sexual intercourse).

    6. Muslims believe that Jesus was not killed and crucified by the Jews.
    as revealed in the holy Quran verse 4:157 and 158.

    7. Most of Muslims in the world are not educated and innocent. Some
    leaders and organisations are misleading young Muslims to fight with.
    other communities as Jihad which is not recognised in the Quranic.
    verses 5:32, 22:40, 45:14 and they are termed as perverts in.
    accordance with Quranic verse 2:99.

    8.Christians failed to interpret Quranic verse 4:157.
    and158,5:14,5:82,7:158,
    57:27 and 28 and 61:6 read with John 14:15-16,15:26-27,16:5-8, read.
    with Matthew 10:16.

    I am a follower of Christian and islam according to quranic verse 57:28.God invite all my Christians brotherhood in the world to follow Christian and islam.Kindly read Quranic verse 57:27and 28 which are available in Quranic English Translation website.All are requested to follow me in the interest of world peace solutions and unity in the world among all of you as iam a messenger of God in according to quranic verse 28:59.

    I am a messenger of God to notice the above said facts to United States of America and others in the world in accordance with the Quranic verse 4:83 that I am fearing that world is not peaceful in these hard days.

    In the circumstance stated above, I prayed for peace and unity in the world and requesting the USA may be asked all the researchers in the world to research the Bible verses and Quranic verses stated above in the light of the messages posted in the website http://www.goldenduas.comin the interest of public peace and unity among all communities in the world.

    I request early solutions.
