I note your USUALLY and it means that the US makes such statements and must NOT be TRUSTED.

Tell me about the INVASION and the murder of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis by the US?

Where are the WMD?

The UN said that there was NONE but the US said otherwise.

Do you know that I once heard that almost a MILLION Iraqis died in the war that was first called operation OIL?

I have subsequently tried to verified the figure(MILLION) that I heard on an overseas electronic media but have not been able to do so.

I have no problem finding how many of a particular group were killed literally 1800 years ago etc.

I find the world to be STRANGE.

1) Can you tell me WHO, WHERE and WHEN set all the criterion from which we can establish who is the true prophet of god and who is not?
You know, according to any MUM his or her son is the most beautiful one ever born in this world. No matter which son you show to them, they won't never accept another as more beautiful of their own son. You Muslims are the same, no matter that out there, there are books better off than Quran you still BELIEVE Quran is the best book ever.
rabbee: all scripture written by alleged as men, all have deceit in them. there is only OneSet, of Scripture Written by G-D. and we all know at least, a little somthing about that story. even if it is not quite, the correct version. and hello there were about, 2 million wittnesses to this event taking place. and there were representatives, from every known nation at the time. so you just can't make the claim, that only the alleged as lying jews were there.

so therefore a true prophet, must be true to TheWord actually given to us from G-D Only. nor does a true prophet - teach or preach - as if we are not still here, in this story from G-D.

Destroy his cool and calm by doing that.

It shows that he was never known as the son of God or God in flesh or God when he was on the planet and also not for the three hundred plus years.
The Quran verifies Jesus is no ordinary Prophet.

The Claim that Jesus was no more than a Prophet
In an attempt to conceal the uniqueness of Jesus in the Qur'an, many Muslims cite the following verse:

Christ the son of Mary was no more than an apostle; many were the apostles that passed away before him.
Surat-ul Maida (5):75
It is true that in his human nature, Jesus was man of flesh just like all the other prophets. However, we cannot ignore the teaching of the Scriptures that reveal to us that in this human flesh dwelt the Word of God of divine nature.(John 1:14, "The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us"). Though we could never begin to explain this mystery of the divine and human nature of Jesus, the Scriptures confirm its truth. Even the Qur'an points to both the human and divine nature of Jesus. For example, we read the following:

0 People of the Book (Jews and Christians)! Commit no excesses in your religion; nor say of God aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) an apostle of God, and His Word, and a Spirit proceeding from Him.
Surat-un Nisaa (4):171
Though the Qur'an is justified in refuting the claim by some heretical Christians of that day that Jesus was the third of three gods along with his mother Mary, it must be carefully noted that the Qur'an has preserved the uniqueness and divine splendor of Jesus by referring to him as "His (God's) Word" and "Spirit proceeding from Him (God)."

The New Testament of the Bible likewise calls Jesus "Word of God" (Revelation 19:13). This term should not be considered lightly. Most Muslims will readily admit that the Word of God was never created, and can never die; it is eternal from everlasting to everlasting. Such can only be of the divine nature!

As for the phrase "Spirit proceeding from Him", the Arabic for this is "ruh-un min hu" and is found elsewhere in the Qur'an.

He (God) has written Faith int their hearts, and strengthened them with a Spirit from Himself.
Surat-ul Mujadila (58):22
In "The Holy Qur'an / Translation with Commentary" by Yusuf Ali, there is a footnote No. 5365 which describes this "Spirit from Himself" as "the divine Spirit which we can no more define adequately than we can define in human language the nature and attributes of God."

From the above it should be obvious that this same phrase "Spirit from Him (God)" which the Qur'an uses to describe Jesus in Surat-un Nisaa (4):171 is speaking of one who is more than just an ordinary prophet!

There are several other teachings from Al-Qur'an that point to the uniqueness of Jesus that should not be overlooked. They are listed as follows:

1) Miraculously born of a virgin

She (Mary) said: "How shall I have a son, seeing that no man has touched me, and I am not unchaste?"
He (Gabriel) said: "So (it will be); 'Thy Lord saith, That is easy for Me.'"
Surat-u Maryam (19):20-21

These same rites form the core of Islam today: Muslims bow in prayer toward Mecca; they make a pilgrimage to Mecca and run around the Kabah seven times; and they still throw stones at the devil. They also observe the fast of Ramadan, which begins and ends with the crescent moon.
Moreover, the ancient symbol of the pagan moon-god, the crescent moon, is the official symbol of Islam; it appears on the flags of Muslim countries, as well as on the tops of mosques and minarets everywhere."
A prove muslims are in fact pagans, worshiping one of the pagan gods.
Please Check Your Bible Every thing You said The Prophets Of Old Did The Same.

Prophet Muhammad explained his mission in the following words: The comparison between me and the preceding prophets is similar to a group of people who took part in building a house and completed it but for an empty space for one block or brick. Onlookers admired it and said in astonishment:'What a beautiful mansion, if it were not for the place of the missing brick' I have been this brick and I am the last or the seal of prophets. Sahih Bukhari P. 18. Muhammad then said: I am one brick of it.

In this analogy the Prophet does not refer to himself as the whole house but as a part of this structure of Prophethood. Thus, he draws the attention of his nation and the followers of previous prophets that the true glory of the people of faith is only through cooperation and integration.

As if to confirm this, Allah says in the Quran:

Verily, this Brotherhood of yours is a single Brotherhood, and I am your Lord and Cherisher. Therefore serve Me,(and no other) Quran Sura 21, The Prophets, verse 92.
Islam does not identify itself with a single person or race, rather it is the recognition and submission to Allah. Thus, the mere faith in Muhammad does not suffice. Islam demands the belief in the great caravan of prophets of which Abraham is the vanguard. His offspring includes Isaac, Ishmael, Jacob, Joseph, David, Solomon, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad (peace be upon them all). They are the teachers and examples to mankind whose stations were solely assigned by Allah. Thus, to attribute sinful behaviour to any of them, which even ordinary people would be ashamed of committing, would be to question the wisdom of Allah in choosing such people. Hence, Islam emphatically maintains the high moral and ethical status of such men. Furthermore, to deny or reject any of the prophets would be the abandonment of faith. Hence, preserving the integrity of the prophethood and its lineage paves the way for cooperation of the people of faith.

The Quran says:
Praise be to Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds. Quran Sura 1, The Opening, verse 1.

Thus, Allah does not identify Himself solely with the Muslims, the Arabs, or the Semitic tribes. He is the Lord of the worlds. Therefore, whoever turns to Allah in love and worship understands that there are other people of faith with whom he has to cooperate in order to fulfill the objectives of Allah and abide by His commands. In this connection, Allah not only counsels man about his good behaviour regarding others, but cautions him as well:

Say to My servants that they should (only) say those things that are best: for Satan does sow dissensions among them: for Satan is to man an avowed enemy. Quran Sura 17, The Children of Israel, verse 53.

Quran verifies Jesus is no ordinary Prophet

It is often asserted by Muslims that Adam likewise had no natural father and therefore Jesus should not be singled out as unique in this regard. It is true that Adam also had no earthly father -- but that is to be expected! How could he have had natural parents if he himself was the first man! However, it was completely different with Jesus. There must have been hundreds of thousands of men and women through whom Jesus could have been born, just like every other prophet after Adam. Yet this was a Sign to mankind. God wanted the world to know that Jesus did not come from the natural seed of man here below; instead he came from the divine nature of God above.

2) Lived a holy life

He (Gabriel) said: "Nay, I am only a messenger from thy Lord,(to announce) to thee the gift of a holy son."
Surat-u Maryam (19):19
Jesus was truly a holy son. Having come from God and not from the seed of man, his life was untouched at birth by the influence of Satan. Truly, Jesus lived a pure life without fault. Many Muslims will contend that Jesus is not unique in this regard because all the prophets were completely faultless.

However, if we carefully search the Qur'an, we find that such is not the case. It is evident that even the great prophets prayed for God's forgiveness. Unlike Jesus, they too, like all other men, were born from the seed of Adam. Notice the following examples:

Adam (and Eve): They said: "Our Lord, we have wronged our own souls. If thou forgive us not and bestow not upon us Thy mercy, we shall certainly be lost."
Surat-ul Araf (7):23

Abraham: And who (God) I hope will forgive me my faults on the Day of judgment.
Surat-ush Shu-araa (26):82

Moses: He prayed: "O my Lord! I have indeed wronged my soul! Do Thou then forgive me!" Surat-ul Qasas (28):16

David: And David gathered that We had tried him; he asked forgiveness of His Lord.
Surat-us Sad (38):24

Solomon: He said, "O my Lord! Forgive me... "
Surat-us Sad (38):35

Jonah: And he had done acts worthy of blame. Had it not been that he (repented and) glorified God, he would certainly have remained inside the fish... Surat-us Saffat (37):142-144

Muhammad: Verily We have granted thee (Muhammad) a manifest victory; that God may forgive thee thy faults of the past and those to follow.
Surat-ul Fath (48):1-2

Know therefore that there is no god but God, and ask forgiveness for thy fault, and for the men and women who believe.
Surat-u Muhammad (47):19

If one were to very carefully search the whole Qur'an he would not find any such verse regarding Jesus asking forgiveness from God. The reason should now be clear; he was holy; he was faultless and perfectly pure. He was from above and not of this world.

3) Performed mighty miracles

I have come to you with a Sign from your Lord, in that I (Jesus) make for you out of clay as it were, the figure of a bird, and breathe into it, and it becomes a bird by God's leave; and I heal those born blind, and the lepers, and I quicken the dead, by God's leave...
Surat-u Ali-Imran (3):49

Not only did Jesus perform great miracles of healing and raise the dead to life, but unlike any other prophet before or after him, the Qur'an describes him as shaping a bird, breathing into it, and causing it to become a live animal!
The above phrase is evidence that Jesus has the power of God to created from the clay of the earth a living creature.

4) Returned to the Presence of God

Behold! God said: "O Jesus! I will take thee and raise thee to Myself..."
Surat-u Ali-Imran (3):55
Unlike most other prophets who returned to dust,

Jesus was not only taken up into Heaven, but more importantly, was taken up to God Himself! The Scriptures mention no other prophet who received such honor.
Since Jesus was from above, from God Himself, it is noteworthy that according to the Qur'an, that is exactly where Jesus returned!

Quran confirms Jesus is no ordinary prophet.

5) Will return to the world

And (Jesus) shall be a Sign (for the coming of the Hour (of Judgment).
Surat-uz Zukhruf (43):61
Though the Qur'an does not explicitly talk of Jesus' return from Heaven, many Muslim scholars use this verse to support the Muslim tradition that Jesus will return to the world in the Last Days to defeat the forces of Satan and prepare the way for universal peace. In his footnote to this verse found in "The Holy Qur'an / Translation and Commetitary" by Yusuf Ali, we read the following: "This is understood to refer to the second coming of Jesus in the Last Days just before the Resurrection..."

In summary, the above Qur'anic references give us a picture of Jesus who was miraculously born outside the blood stream of Adam, lived a sinless perfect life, performed great miracles even of creation, was raised up to God Himself, and is expected to return to the world to pave the way for universal peace. No other prophet in any of the Holy Books is described as this! Regardless what some Muslims may say, the Qur'an speaks loudly for itself -- Jesus is no ordinary prophet!!!

Jesus is the unique Son of God.

If you want More I can give you some more.
You are just a dumb ass gullible Muslim on your way to the fires of hell.

Did Abraham Really Marry His Sister?
The short answer is no, Abraham did not really marry his sister. I think the explanation for this is interesting. I hope you will find it enlightening.

Here is the quote from Genesis 11:29.

Genesis 11:29
And Abram and Nahor took them wives: the name of Abram's wife was Sarai; and the name of Nahor's wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah, and the father of Iscah.
Let's take a look at two verses dealing with Abram and Lot.

Gen 14:12
And they took Lot, Abram's brother's son, who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed.

Gen 14:16
And he brought back all the goods, and also brought again his brother Lot, and his goods, and the women also, and the people.
Did you notice that in Genesis 14:12 Lot is called Abram's brother's son or his nephew, as we would say today, and then in Genesis 14:16 Lot is called Abram's brother. So one might suggest that in Abram's day the word brother could be understood to also include newphews. Let me suggest that the same is true for the word sister.

I have learned that in the Hebrew language a noun can be singular or plural based on the context. Strong's says that the Hebrew word for daughter is bath, 1323. If you do an Englishman's search for this word you will see that quite a number of the instances are translated as daughters and also some are daughter. So now here is Genesis 11:29 with the word daughters instead of the singular daughter.

Genesis 11:29
And Abram and Nahor took them wives: the name of Abram's wife was Sarai; and the name of Nahor's wife, Milcah, the daughters of Haran, the father of Milcah, and the father of Iscah.
Interesting! So now let's get a second source for this idea. The Book of Jasher, while not inspired, is mentioned twice in scripture that we should look at it. So here is what it says.

Jasher 12:44
And at that time Nahor and Abram took unto themselves wives, the daughters of their brother Haran; the wife of Nahor was Milca and the name of Abram's wife was Sarai. And Sarai, wife of Abram, was barren; she had no offspring in those days.

Haran had just died before they took his daughters as wives. Abram then also took upon himself the care of his newphew Lot. Also according to Jasher Abram spent a number of years living in the house of Shem being taught the law of God.

So Abraham knew God's law very well and would have known it was improper for him to marry his sister. Sarah was actually Abraham's niece. Leviticus 18 does not prohibit the marriage of a man and his niece.

Surat-uz Zukhruf (43):61
Though the Qur'an does not explicitly talk of Jesus' return from Heaven, many Muslim scholars use this verse to support the Muslim tradition that Jesus will return to the world in the Last Days to defeat the forces of Satan and prepare the way for universal peace. In his footnote to this verse found in "The Holy Qur'an / Translation and Commetitary" by Yusuf Ali, we read the following: "This is understood to refer to the second coming of Jesus in the Last Days just before the Resurrection..."
In summary, the above Qur'anic references give us a picture of Jesus who was miraculously born outside the blood stream of Adam, lived a sinless perfect life, performed great miracles even of creation, was raised up to God Himself, and is expected to return to the world to pave the way for universal peace. No other prophet in any of the Holy Books is described as this! Regardless what some Muslims may say, the Qur'an speaks loudly for itself -- Jesus is no ordinary prophet!!!
Jesus is the unique Son of God.

interesting that Quran mentions resurrection at Sinai,

2:55 When you said, "Moses, we will not believe you until we see Allah face to face", lightning and thunder shocked you to death before your very eyes.
2:56 But We gave you life so that you could be grateful.
upon hearing the terrifying sounds of thunder and the horn blast, their souls "jumped out of their bodies" (Shabbat 88b), i.e. the Israelites dropped down dead from cardiogenic shock
God revived them back to life with the "dew of resurrection" (tal techiya)
and they said enough, "We will die if we hear the voice of YHVH any more" (Deut 5:25)
