The Taliban agreed to release South Korean Christian missionaries in Afghanistan when those missionaries agreed not to conduct missions there. Look at that. The strictest adherents to Islam are afraid of the open debate about whom to follow, Jesus or Mohammed.

If Jesus and Mohammed were standing right in front of you and each said follow me and headed off in different directions, which they would, which person would you follow? That's the question we put to every Muslim.

To choose Mohammed over Jesus is insane on the part of those who have had sufficient exposure to the words of Christ and it is ignorance on the part of those who have not been so exposed.

The Taliban know that Jesus's real message is the strongest message on earth. The Taliban fear that message being made common knowledge in Afghanistan, because then the Taliban would lose selfish control and power.
