! Muslims And Christians

Rating: 3.0
In the deepest deeps of the human heart,
what separates Christian and Muslim,
Islam and Christianity?
Absolutely nothing. How could it?

The God always close to us –
as close as His blood, our blood –
inside us, and outside us,
whom, when we forget,
then we must remember –

this, our God. In that holy place,
we cannot entertain
a thought of separation;

only when we seek duality, division,
a foe to fight a friend,
a friend to fight a foe,
do we name our friends, our fiends, our enemies.

Mohamed, the prophet of the Lord,
Jesus, son of God? Let those who will,
play with such terms;

and if men insult their holy name –
some in burning fury
take it as a personal insult
to the God who lives within them;
some smile, and say,
God is not mocked…
His justice and His mercy see
that retribution is His law of nature…

In the deepest deeps
of one single human heart, rests
enough love for the whole world, the whole Creation;
who can measure that?

Your right Michael, Jesus is a prophet in islam, we share so much with each other many holy stories are the same, but Hundreds of years of mistrust are hard to wash away, ever since the crusaders in the holy land.. So called Christian knights killed thousands of Muslims in the name of god, even then they where willing to live in peace with them, but they kept on committing crimes against their Muslim neighbors, until they had to wipe the crusader kingdom away… That's why we have so much trouble today, we may act with the best intensions but they still fear another crusade...10
