      What Do Kuwait & Jews for Jesus Have in Common?

      The answer is fake Qur'aan*. The new AMERICAN Qur'aan!

      Surprisingly this new so-called Qur'aan, entitled, "The True Furqan"
      is being distributed in Kuwait!

      Al-Furqan weekly magazine (unrelated to the book) has found
      out that the two American printing companies; 'Omega 2001'
      and 'Wine Press' are involved in the publishing of 'The True
      Furqan',
      a book which has also been titled 'The 21st Century Quran'!

      The book is over 366 pages in both Arabic and English...
      It is being distributed to children in Kuwait in the
      private English schools!

      It contains 77 Soorahs (or chapters). Instead of
      Bismillah (In the name of God), each Soorah begins with
      a longer version of Bismillah incorporating the Christian
      belief of the three spirits.

      This so-called Qur'aan opposes many Islamic beliefs. For
      instance, it states that divorce is not permitted, it uses
      a new system of inheritance and rejects the current one,
      and it states that Jihad is Haraam (prohibited). This is another
      example of brainwashing and interference in Moslems'
      lives and believes, not to mention undermining their heritage
      and history! Moslem children are being brain washed
      for $3 (the price of the book) Politics and religious
      intolerance are the clear motivations behind this book.

      Observation and Commentary
      By Hashim Al-Tawil, Ph.D., Art History Chair
      Henry Ford Community College
      Dearborn, Michigan

      "Al-Furqan al-Haq" is the Arabic title of this infamous bilingual
      publication which is funded by anti-Moslem groups in the US
      and abroad.

      I have a copy of this "Joke" which has been distributed free in
      Dearborn and Metropolitan Detroit area through certain churches
      and evangelical groups since at least 4 years ago. It is a joke
      for those who have reasonable knowledge of Arabic - Islamic teaching
      and culture, but it is a malicious weapon against Islam for those
      who are ignorant or lack sufficient Islamic knowledge-mostly the
      young generation of Moslems outside the Islamic world. This book
      is a collaborative work of primarily evangelical missionaries and
      Jews for Jesus groups.

      The fake Qur'aan has been also offered through Amazon and
      possibly other book vendors and of course free in many churches.
      The "True Furqan" targets the minds of young people, especially
      Moslem Americans whose knowledge of Islam and Islamic teaching
      is fragile.

      It is written in Arabic-with English translation, imitating the
      Quranic style, but poor in quality and ridiculous in content.
      However, to those who are not well versed in Arabic and Islamic
      knowledge the text sounds like Quranic verses. The content is an
      endless insult to Islam as a religion, and the personality of the
      prophet Mohammed, while glorifying Jesus and promoting Christianity.
      It is a pathetic attempt to distort the Quranic teaching by
      reproducing what looks like Quranic verses, obviously done by native
      Arabic speakers. I think that it is an insult to both Moslems and
      Christians.

      The Arabic Text: It is a whole new product designed
      to sounds like Quranic rhymed verses. The content of these
      so-called verses is a deceitful manipulation of the original text.

      The Amazon editorial review states:

      <<Arabic and English side-by-side on every page. Prose and
      poetry of the highest caliber in classical Arabic with English
      interpretation. It contains 77 surahs (chapters) dealing with
      as many subjects which are beautifully written and
      easily understood. Love, Light, Peace, Truth, Repentance,
      Women, Marriage, Fasting, Prayer, Abrogation, The Sacrifice,
      Inspiration, Paradise, The Scale and The Excellent Names are
      some of the chapters written in the unique style of the Quran.>>

      Commentary by Wafaa' Al-Natheema

      I remind the readers particularly in the industrial west
      of the reaction by Jews and Christians toward the fiction film (not
      documentary) "The Last Temptation of Christ" The reaction
      included the burning of a movie theater in France, a country
      with high secular thoughts and behaviors, plus several
      demonstrations at US theaters. That was only a fiction film,
      imagine changing the religious scripture and sell it to
      brainwash real-life (not in the movies) teenagers and
      the youth! In fact the reaction to burn the movie theater
      in France is hypocritical when one sees their intolerance
      and discrimination in schools and at work against Moslem
      women wearing the Hijab (head cover).

      I am always impressed how much the current tactics of anti-Arab/anti-
      Muslim racism seem to draw on the late 19th and early 20th century
      tactics of Central and Eastern European anti-Jewish racism and anti-
      Judaism. Likewise the tactics of Christian proselytization of
      Muslims often appear to draw on the history of more recent American
      Christian missionary activities that targeted ethnic Ashkenazi
      immigrants to America for conversion to Christianity. It is
      interesting that Yiddishists were not so hostile to Yiddish
      translations of the Christian New Testament as were more religious
      ethnic Ashkenazim, who tended to consider such literature extremely
      treif (the opposite of kosher).

      I have attached an article about missionary Yiddish after the
      discussion of the so-called New American Quran. The missionary
      Yiddish article is interesting for mentioning in passing various
      points of overlap between Zionism, Protestant proselytization and
      evangelical fundamentalist institutions like the Moody Bible
      Institute, which so strongly influence Christian Zionists as well as
      the irredentist white racist neo-Confederate followers of George W.
      Bush.
