I’m willing to bet the website www.realtruthaboutislam.wordpress.com will disappear or be renamed fairly soon.( This website has the same color theme so dont be misled) This website provides the authors research and quotes from several scholars, and books on authority of islam in which he shares so truthfully. In this post , he exposes the lies behind “inter faith” dialogues. Here is the post, just in case it disappears:

As for those who call today for an open dialogue and understanding between the religions, claiming that they are all heavenly faiths – rather, some are even so bold as to claim that the Jews and Christians are not disbelievers – then this is contrary to what the Messenger of Allaah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) came with, contrary to what is stated in the Qur’aan and contrary to the religion of Ibraaheem, which we were commanded to follow:“O you who believe, do not take your fathers and your brothers as supporters, if they prefer disbelief over Faith. And whoever of you does so, then is one of the wrong-doers.”
[Surah At-Tawbah (9): 23]These individuals say: “The Jews and Christians are People of the Scripture and they are people who believe. All of these are religions sent from Allaah. We will try to understand what we share in common and work together. And you should not deem the Jews and Christians as disbelievers.”This call is prevalent nowadays, and it eradicates the aspect of loyalty and disloyalty between the believers and the disbelievers. Whoever doesn’t believe in the Messenger, Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم), is a disbeliever, regardless of whether he is from the People of the Scripture or not. This is because after the advent of the Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم), everyone has no choice but to believe in him (صلى الله عليه وسلم). So whoever doesn’t believe in him is a disbeliever. The Jews and Christians do not believe in the Messenger (Muhammad), so they are disbelievers.The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: “By the One in whose Hand is the soul of Muhammad, there is no one from this ummah, whether he is Jewish or Christian, that hears about me and then dies without believing in what I was sent with, except that he will be from the inhabitants of the Hellfire.”
[Reported by Muslim (no. 153)]So after the advent of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم), no one is allowed to abandon following his religion. This is such that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: “By Allaah, if my brother Moosaa were alive, he would have no choice but to follow me.”
So after the advent of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم), there is no correct religion except the religion of Islaam.“And whoever seeks other than Islaam as a religion, then it will never be accepted from him, and in the Hereafter, he will be from among the losers.”
[Surah Aali ‘Imraan (3):85]
So this is a false call. But yet today, there are conferences and seminars held for its sake and money is donated at these events in order to call to the unification of the religions, which they call “inter-faith” dialogues! Far removed is Allaah from this! Can there be such a thing as an open dialogue between belief and disbelief, between Shirk and Tawheed, and between the enemies of Allaah and His allies?!

Perhaps now, the leaders of our schools, and religious organizations will see the deceit and misleading good will from the muslim community .
