Saudi Arabian Press: Islam is Superior Series -- 'The Story of "Moshe"'
One such example of a Jew converting to Islam comes from "Moshe," who discusses the need for Jews to reevaluate the Tanakh [Bible] and the Koran: "I am Jewish who converted to Islam because Islam is the rational choice. I wanted to believe the Torah is true and like most Jews I tried to block out reality, thinking if I ignore the Koranic revelation it would go away and the facts which the Koran mentions like the universe was formed with a big bang and the planets by the contraction of early gases."
"I pretended it didn't matter that my religion was, to be honest, little more than a collage of fragments of cooked up false, albeit well-meaning, ideas. If one carries out an objective evaluation of Judaism and Islam, not as a Jew but as an intellectual, one will be convinced that Islam is the rational and intellectual choice. Despite that, I still hold prejudices that Muslims are uncultured compared to sophisticated Jews and that it would be great to live in Israel. But Islam is the truth, Ha Emet."
Nassar: "Mr. President, a few days ago there was a referendum about renewing the presidency for seven more years. There were those who asked about the meaning of the 100% support that you received, especially since the Western culture is unable to comprehend such a percentage."
Saddam: "It has a great significance. It means that I treat my people with justice and truth. To those who maintain that I do not represent my people, it means that I truly do represent them. It is the result of a referendum of a free nation, witnessed by Arab and foreign observers and journalists, and it attests to the fallacy of the existence of an opposition to the Iraqi regime."
Stanford Review Correction Notice
The Stanford Review would like to apologize to Ming Zhu and the cast of The Sorcerer for the omission of Miss Zhu’s preview article in the last issue.
