I Get Glurged! (again)

I received this glurge from a very good friend of mine. It starts out with a horrible story. (I have not verified this story.) Then errupts into nasty glurgy goodness.

A Muslim man in Egypt killed his wife because she was reading the Bible and then buried her with their infant baby and an 8-year old daughter. The girls were buried alive! He then reported to the police that an uncle killed the kids.

15 days later, another family member died.. When they went to bury him, they found the 2 little girls under the sand - ALIVE! The country is outraged over the incident, and the man will be executed. The older girl was asked how she had survived and she says:- 'A man wearing shiny white clothes, with bleeding wounds in his hands, came every day to feed us. He woke up my mom so she could nurse my sister,'

She was interviewed on Egyptian national TV, by a veiled Muslim woman news anchor. She said on public TV, 'This was none other than Jesus, because nobody else does things like this!' Muslims believe Isa(Jesus) would do this, but the wounds mean He really was crucified, and it's clear also that He is alive! But, it's also clear that the child could not make up a story like this, and there is no way these children could have survived without a true miracle.. Muslim leaders are going to have a hard time to figure out what to do with this, and the popularity of the Passion movie doesn't help! With Egypt at the center of the media and education in the Middle East , you can be sure this story will spread. Christ is still turning the world upside down! Please let this story be shared. The Lord says, 'I will bless the person who puts his trust in me.. 'Jeremiah 17

Please forward to all on your list and God will reward you abundantly Mark 8:38 which says, 'Therefore whosoever shall be ashamed of Me and my Words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man shall also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels'.

Don't worry if those you have forwarded will respond or do anything with this message, just fulfill your part and shake off your dust...!..

Jesus loves you..!
This story hardly seems credible past the first paragraph. However, that's not the point I wish to make. There's a couple of alarms that went off in my head.

... it's also clear that the child could not make up a story like this ...
What? An eight year old girl can't make up fantastic stories? Are they kidding me? Excuse me a second while I bang my head furiously on the table.
A Muslim man in Egypt killed his wife because she was reading the Bible and then buried her with their infant baby and an 8-year old daughter.
Exactly as instructed by the book that his wife was reading.
If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers; Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth; Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him: But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people. And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust thee away from the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. ---Deuteronomy 13:6-10
People read stories like this and think that this man was so cruel because of the Quran, not realizing that the bible says the same cruel things.

Buried alive for 15 days and alive???? Did jesus unbury and rebury at each feeding? Why not leave them go free the first time he unburied them? At each feeding the chidren just willfully conscented to be reburied? Jesus hands are still bleeding 2000+ years later? Typical of christians to come up with a story like this.
This is the type of tales christians believe yet scorn evolution and science.

It appears to be a hoax.

I was pretty sure it was a hoax.

This did not appear on national tv in any muslim country. The koran clearly says that Jesus wasn't crucified, and it's an article of faith to muslims, so this kid saying otherwise is blasphemy. People have been killed for less than that. Stupid christians should do their homework.
