309. Muslims in fact see the NT & OT as parts of an alien faith tradition.

They certainly do not accept the OT as part of their faith as Christians do, nor do they use the NT or OT in their religious practices, despite Muhammad's respectful words about earlier revelations (Torah, OT, NT--often explained as an attempt early in his career to win the goodwill of Christians and Jews so as to make it easier to convert them). I suggest you ask a few mainstream Muslims what they think of this, as opposed to swallowing the happy-sappy interfaith line of people who are not devout in the first place. Jesus plays his own honored role in Muslim theology, being a mortal man and prophet who will yet return to earth to judge the living and the dead, but to see him reverenced on the weaponry of a predominantly Christian country, and one involved in much conflict with Muslims, is another matter entirely. The Trijicon people are stirring trouble that they just don't need to.

See how many Muslim clerics issue fatwas saying that this OK. My bet is, zero.
