For centuries, Muslims have assumed that John the Baptist (Yahya), like Jesus, never married or sired children. This is in accordance with Christian tradition, but, Belica argues, there is no cogent reason for Muslims to accept this belief. On the contrary, he says, this view of Yahya is inconsistent with the text of the Quran.

I would rather build bridges than walls. But in this age there is an evil mindset that is determined to eliminate America’s freedom.

I’m going to pass on trips to Israel for a few weeks. Walking around the Gaza strip looking for some good Arabic food would be crazy right now.
