Introduction — Dec 27, 2013
The Zionists and their Anglo-American collaborators have long tried to further the differences between Christians and Muslims for their own ends. However, as anyone who has looked at both faiths impartially will know, they have much in common.
Beyond mere superficial appearances, both faiths have similar goals, even if the ways and means to achieve them differ outwardly.
Although in their ignorance most of America’s so-called “Christians” may not realise it, the Koran treats Jesus Christ as a figure of respect. As does the Ayatollah in this latest speech.
Although you wouldn’t think so from the CNS report below, which claims that the Koran teaches that Christians are “deluded and cursed by Allah”. A claim CNS makes without any reference to confirm or substantiate it.
Indeed, such claims have long been used to widen the perceived rift between the two faiths. It’s an old Zionist ruse.
Significantly however, the Ayatolloh’s reaching out to Christians has been echoed in one of Iranian President Rouhani’s Christmas messages. Prompting one to wonder if there is a concerted effort among Iran’s secular and religious leaders to appeal to what remains of Christianity in the West?
Iranian Ayatollah: “If Christ were Alive today He would Fight America”

Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei marked Christmas Day with social media messages tying Jesus into political rhetoric directed at the United States.
“If Christ were among us today, he would not spare even a single moment to fight the leaders of despotism and global arrogance,” he said on Facebook, using the Islamic Republic’s favored term for America.
“Nor would he tolerate hunger and wandering of millions of people, degenerated by the hegemonic and colonialist powers into war, corruption, and violence,” he added.
On Twitter, Khamenei tweeted another message containing a veiled dig at the U.S.: “Jesus Christ was a minister of a heavenly justice to call all oppressed on earth for emancipation from the thralldom of bullying despots.”
In a separate message he claimed that Jesus is as important to Muslims as he is to Christians: “No doubt that Jesus Christ has no less value among Muslims than he has among the pious Christians.”
Seldom does a key Christian holiday pass without some Muslim leader making such assertions. The Qur’an depicts Jesus as one of many biblical prophets, but rejects his divinity (teaching that those who believe otherwise are deluded and cursed by Allah) — AND NOTE CNS PROVIDES ABSOLUTELY NO REFERNCE TO CONFIRM THIS CLAIM — and denies that Jesus was crucified – two central tenets of the Christian faith.
A politically-charged Christmas greeting also came from Iran’s Lebanese ally, Hezbollah, which expressed the hope that the people of “Prophet Jesus’ birthplace” “enjoy freedom from the abomination of the Zionist occupation and that the banner of freedom and victory is raised over Palestine.”
