It is only fair that Mayor Lim blocks the showing of the film. How would any Christian feel if Islam made fun of our Jesus Christ ?It may be childish to some, but we must respect each others religious beliefs to avoid irritating Muslims. I only wish Muslims should also respect the rules against the wearing of veils in schools or offices of other countries. When you are in Roman , be like the Romans or keep out ! This is not a Muslim world, remember.

Philippines made Ramadam a non working holiday to show respect for the Islam community and Manila was an Islam Kingdom and the Philippines still embraces the Islam heritage.

The Philippines has freedom of Religion and it is not kissing their asses so Islam has the right to be respected it is the Jihadist Islam that is not to be respected because they are terrorist and violent people the videos that you are watching are made by Jihadist Muslims for propaganda porposes. Islam is a peaceful relisgion if you go to Marawi the muslims there are very friendly and accomodating.

Islam respects Jesus (Isa) because they also believe in him but just a Prophet sent by God like what INC also believes. So in Islam if you mock Jesus they will also get mad.

lim must placate the muslims under threat of bombings and if youre not smart enough to read between the lines its your problem.

he cant stop the film because its on the internet and everyone has seen it and who cares?

where exactly would the film BE SHOWN IN MANILA anyway?

what the hell is wrong with your thinking?

and speaking about the internet your political cowards have now got legislation to prevent free speech in the filipins.

back to the dark ages of dictatorship and dont even say that the filipins is a democratic country.

one good thing though? hackers from around the world will inundate and annihilate the manila fools who think they can censor the entire internet. they wont have enough jails for everyone .

what clowns that you have running your country.

guess im going to jail for speaking my mind huh?

Islam is a very complicated religion just like Christianity because there are the Shiites, Sunni, Jihadist, etc... and they also kill each other just like in Ireland where Catholics and Protestants kill each other. If ever thet Film will be shown in the Philippines I believe that the average Muslim would not set off bombs it is the Jihadist Terrorist groups and there are many Jihadist sleeper cells in the Philippines.

yes muslims show respect to christians pull the other leg it plays kenny lawry is a fcuking fat turd

If there are two things that Muslims do really well, it’s burning churches and synagogues and showing respect for religion. In Cairo, the appropriately named Abu Islam, decided to go for a twofer by doing both at the same time and burning the Christian Bible. Christians immediately responded by besieging Muslim embassies and demanding that someone be beheaded for this.

Muslim cleric Abu Islam Burns the Holy Bible in front of thousands of Muslims at protest outside the US Embassy in Cairo, Egypt, on Tuesday, 9/11. His action was met with applause and anti-Christian cheers from the demonstrators. The cleric, before leaving the demonstration and getting into his car, told the crowds “next time I will urinate on it.”

Abu Islam holds another Bible and says: This is the book the dog Terry believes in, as well as those dogs with him the Egyptian Christians in America. Abu Islam: Today I can only TEAR IT APART. He starts tearing the bible and throwing the leaves towards the mob, amid chants of Allahu Akbar and “Khaybar, Khaybar, O Jews, the army of Mohammad is coming.”

Abu Islam: Salamu Aleycom (Peace be with you) and leaves, with mob chanting “Khaybar, Khaybar, O Jews, the army of Mohammad is coming.”“Governing, governing, O Koran.”“Coming, Coming O Islam.”
I like the peace.

It makes him seem so peaceful and reminds us all that Islam truly is a religion of peace. Also death.

Abu Islam is not true Islam it is another crazy Jihadist faction. True Islam respects Christ or Christianity as a whole. When the prophet Mohammad invaded Mecca, he destroyed all figurings and statues of other gods except for one the figuring of Jesus in fact the true Islam even believes that Jesus will return as the savior just like in Christianity.

Muslims believe that Isa (Jesus) will return at a time close to the end of the world. The Qur'an states:

"And when the son of Mary is quoted as an example, behold! the folk laugh out,
And say: Are our gods better, or is he? They raise not the objection save for argument. Nay! but they are a contentious folk.
He is nothing but a slave on whom We bestowed favour, and We made him a pattern for the Children of Israel.
And had We willed We could have set among you angels to be viceroys in the earth.
And lo! verily there is knowledge of the Hour. So doubt ye not concerning it, but follow Me. This is the right path.
And let not Satan turn you aside. Lo! he is an open enemy for you.
When Jesus came with clear proofs (of Allah's Sovereignty), he said: I have come unto you with wisdom, and to make plain some of that concerning which ye differ. So keep your duty to Allah, and obey me.
Lo! Allah, He is my Lord and your Lord. So worship Him. This is a right path.
But the factions among them differed. Then woe unto those who do wrong from the doom of a painful day.
Await they aught save the Hour, that it shall come upon them suddenly, when they know not?
Friends on that day will be foes one to another, save those who kept their duty (to Allah)."
—Quran sura 43 (az-Zukhruf), ayah 57-67[25]

Muslims hate neither Christians nor Jews. They do not hate even atheists. Hate doesn't exist in Islam against the people of other faiths.

Also, God commands Muslims to maintain friendly and cooperative relations with people of other beliefs. In the Quran, the Holy book of Islam, God has said:

" God does not forbid you from showing kindness and dealing justly with those who have not fought you about religion and have not driven you out of your homes. God loves just dealers."
[Quran, chapter 60/ verse 8]

There is no religious freedom in the Islamic kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Public non-Muslim worship is absolutely forbidden, and conversion to Christianity – perceived apostasy – is punishable by death. Most Christians there are monitored foreign workers who are allowed to worship privately within isolated ‘foreigner’ compounds, and even then they sometimes face difficulty.

For example, twelve Filipino Christians and a priest were arrested while attending a service in a private home, in October 2010. They were verbally charged with ‘blaspheming against Islam” and cordially banned for life from Saudi Arabia (quiet deportations are a new tactic of the religious police – it avoids the media scrutiny that heavy-handed arrests generate).

At least fifteen Christians were killed by Islamist insurgents Al-Shabaab, in 2009, and they killed at least another eight Christians, in 2010. So it’s no wonder a quarter of all Christians have already fled the country. The few believers remaining are heavily persecuted and must practice their faith in secret, lest they be murdered in front of their children, like Christian convert Osman Abdullah Fataho.

Al-Shabaab has taken control of most of southern Somalia, and they have a stated goal to wipe out Christianity from all of Somalia. However, recent indications hint they may be losing popularity.

so much for islam being a peace full religon showing respect to the people of other faiths

Population: 28.15 million; few Christians
Main Religion: Islam
Government: Islamic Republic

Open Christians in Afghanistan face constant pressure from family, society and government agents. Believers usually keep a very low profile, and never meet together publicly. In June 2010, the deputy secretary of Parliament called for the execution of Christian converts, after seeing baptisms of Afghan Christians on an Afghan television (correction—THE Afghan television).

As a result, many Christians have gone into hiding, and, in August 2010, the Taliban shot and killed ten members of a Christian medical team that had been providing eye treatment and other health care in remote villages of northern Afghanistan.

Quote 2) "Muslims refuse to follow western ways when they move to the west and demand and expect accommodation. Even so, the majority of Muslims have no ill feelings to westerners. Many Muslims, in reality, are indifferent to Christians but hate Jews."

Muslims worldwide cheer when Westerners are killed by natural disasters or from the World Trade center catastrophe

You will find the nearest in love to Muslims those who say "we are Christians'. That is because amongst them are men devoted to learning and men who have renounced the world and they are not arrogant. And when they listen to the Quran's revelation received by the Messenger (Muhammad), you see their eyes overflowing with tears because of the truth they have recognized.... So because of what they said, Allah (God) rewarded them ...."
[Quran, chapter 5, verses 82-86]
God explains in the Quran that he caused the different nations with different beliefs only for them to compete in doing good deeds that bring them closer to God, but not to stay in conflict or hatred. The Quran says:
"... If Allah had willed, He would have made you one nation (one belief), but that may test you in what He has given you; so compete in good deeds; then God will inform you about that in which you used to differ"

yes it is a peace full religon showing compassion to all man kind

In Lebanon Christians and Muslims live in harmony and in Greenhills in Metro Manila where there is a big Muslim community the Christians and Muslims also live in harmony and there is even a mosque inside the Greenhills shopping center.

Like in all religions there are radicals like the Islam Jihadists who's goal is to islamize the whole world even Christians have also theur counterpart like Hitler who is a Christian Catholic believed that he was sent by God to change and cleanse the world and he did it violently like what the Jihadist also do.

Martin Nuke,
