Radio interview with Massoud Fouroozandeh, a Danish-Iranian Christian leader.
Translated from Uriasposten (support our translations, donate via 10news.dk):
“You ask who is a real Muslim. Well, according to the Quran and Islamic custom, a real Muslim is a person who emulates his prophet Muhammad. A real Muslim is one who can emulate Muhammad.
So how did Muhammad live?
In fact, Muhammad did not live differently from the way Islamic State lives. What IS does is not a misunderstanding or abuse of the Quran. Islamic State sympathizers are actually just trying to live up to and imitate their prophet Muhammad. …It’s not me who says this, it is Islamic history books of Muslims and Arabs who have written this. That Muhammad did exactly the same as the Islamic State does today. …
He has actually done the same things that we are experiencing today that the Islamic State people do. Before it was just something we read in the history books. Today we see it with our own eyes.
So when you ask me who is a real Muslim, I’m sorry to say – the real Muslim is one who imitates Muhammad. So that is the answer. …
Moderate peaceful Muslims are not peaceful because of Islam. They are peaceful despite of Islam. It is quite an important point.“
