British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who in 2011 claimed to read the Koran every day for spiritual guidance, once tried to calm British fears of growing Muslim population, influence and terrorism in Britain by mentioning that Jesus along with, Mary, Abraham, Moses, Aaron, David, Jonah and many other Old Testament prophets and kings are also spoken of in the Koran. Although this in itself is a true statement, the major problem is that the stories about them in the Koran are generally taken from heretical Jewish and Christian sources and are significantly different in theological overview and detail from Judeo-Christian canonical Scripture. They are often entertaining and sometimes inspiring but false or distorted in detail and often wide of the mark of traditional Jewish and Christian theology.
More recently, Blair seems to have opened his eyes a bit. May he and other European and American leaders open them much wider!
