"Muslims Predict Jesus Will Defeat ISIS...

...Beginning in 2015."

That's the title of an article at Huffpo written by a Muslim with the interesting Islamic name of Dr. David Liepert. It's full of reassurances that real Muslims know how "crazy-stupid" ISIS is, that they too love Jesus and await his coming again. (They're also waiting on the Mahdi, but I couldn't quite figure out what one of those is). As a result he says some crazy-stupid things like:

Even though Muslims and Christians disagree about what he is, with Christians claiming he's God and Muslims declaring he's not, everybody agrees about what sort of a person he was, is and will be: a man who fulfilled the Jewish Covenant and taught benevolent compassion to his followers, his example remaining a source of hope and inspiration to all humankind for the rest of time.

B.S. Except for the Jewish Covenant stuff, he might be talking about the Buddha or Gandhi. If you don't believe in his divinity, you can't even come close to knowing "what sort of person he was."

It turns out that Dr. Liepert and Jesus ("peace be upon him") have a past:

Bottom line, I have served God and loved Jesus my entire life, and I followed Jesus into Islam when I realized I became a worse man by worshipping Him and a better man by following him.

Some people just can't walk and chew gum at the same time.
