A LETTER TO THE MUSLIM, CHRISTIAN AND JEWISH BELIEVERSMuslim, Christian and Jewish believers,
Let’s Act All Together for Love, Peace and Brotherhood and Respect the Faiths.
All prophets are very beautiful people.Their disposition, morals and attitudes are excellent. They are exemplary people, who are mostrespected and loved.Any inappropriate language directed towards them disturbs all believers. It is unreasonable toexplain away any such contrary attitudes by the excuses of “democracy” or “tolerance.”From the Qur’an, as well as the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament, we know that throughouthistory, unbelievers seemed to mock and slander God’s blessed messengers.

But they mocked God's messengers, despised His words and scoffed at His prophets, until thewrath of the Lord was aroused against His people and there was no remedy.
(2 Chronicles 36:16) Whom are you mocking? At whom do you sneer and stick out your tongue?
. . . In the light of these things, should I relent?
(Isaiah 57: 4, 6) Likewise, the hostile manner of the unbelievers to God's blessed messenger Jesus (pbuh) isrelated in the New Testament in these terms:
He [Jesus] will be handed over to the Gentiles. They will mock him, insult him...
