DENVER This is the story of three sports-loving Muslim brothers and how they boosted the career of the NFLs most famous Christian.
The Suleimans - Tariq, Ali and Mohammad - are responsible for the Sign, the towering electronic billboard that captured national attention when it began running messages in September urging the Denver Broncos to start Tim Tebow as quarterback.
It worked. It just goes to show you, said Mohammad, when Muslims and Christians get together, miracles can happen.
Now the talk of professional football and a pop-culture phenomenon for his unorthodox style, onfield heroics and highly visible Christian faith, Tebow just three months ago was stuck on the sidelines as his teams backup quarterback. He hadnt started a game this season, and there was no guarantee his number would be called, even though Broncos fans had been clamoring to see him play.
That included 26-year-old Mohammad Suleiman. He had heard about campaigns to raise money to erect a Play Tebow billboard in Denver. At that point, those efforts had fallen short, but Mohammad had access to something other fans didnt: a really big sign.

Awesome :). Credit where credit is due.
How utterly wonderful, three Muslims are taking credit for Tebow’s faith in Jesus Christ.
Anybody else had a bellyfull of these “Oh, them muzzies, they’re just so Red-White-and-True-Blue!!” stories yet?
Sounds like the opening of an SNL skit.
3brothers: "We're three wild and crazy sports-loving jihadis!"
announcer: "A Cowboys lineman just stripped the ball from Tebow!"
3brothers: "We keel you!!!"
You forgot “SILENCE!”
Yep, and sick of FReepers posting rotten garbage like this.
Put ‘admin’ in a user search and see what you get.
Great story, but I guarantee you they will be hearing from Grand Imam Abdul Aziz Skyhook or some such “authority” with the usual threatening Koran passages.
>> It worked. It just goes to show you, said Mohammad, when Muslims and Christians get together, miracles can happen.
That is, primarily in the Christian West. Try testing those ‘miracles’ in the intolerant World of Islam.
In many Arab countries, these Muslims wouldn’t be considered Muslim, but beheaded instead as apostates. Still, I’m aware there are many American Muslims who choose to get along with others, but they are not following the Koran where Mohammed says “do not be friends with Christians or Jews”.
‘administrator’ gets you the same thing. “Nobody by that name” I don’t see much reason for a zot here but if you want to persist you might try ‘AdminModerator’ which is an actual account here.
I agree completely. This kind of tabloid-style trash tarnishes the integrity of Free Republic. I come here for news and informed opinion not Muzzie apologetics. They are the enemy within.
This is a pro-God site for Conservative activism. Feel-good stories about so-called "nice" Muzzies merit, at the very least, a HUGH HURL ALERT.
It's the same kind of offal that the lamestream media tries to feed an uninformed public about sodomites. They pose those deviants as if they're authentic Americans sharing our values.
Mooselimbs and homosexuals are united in the goal of destroying our country. Their methods differ but their objectives differ not one whit. The homosexual agenda must be exposed for the evil it perpetrates. So too, a gullible public must awake to the existential threat of the Islamic enemy, both within our borders and otherwise.
Think about this headline.
We have a couple of Camel Jock’s that are praising him and it makes news?
This whole thing is silly...
Children are dying horrible deaths every day in hospices around the world and Tebow thinks God is concerned about him scoring while playing with a little brown ball.
Merry Christmas, One and All!
Nope, using that little brown ball is scoring for God and Jesus Christ. He was born and raised of missionaries and that is his calling. He just happens to have a physical talent that he uses to raise praise to He who he credits with his talents.
Got a problem with that?
It's the media that is blowing things way out of proportion. And that's only because it gives them good ratings. They really dislike Tebow and all he stands for.
Many of them seemed stunned that someone actually lived the kind of clean Christian lifestyle that Tim lives. They really didn't know how to respond. And it showed on their faces and in their words.
The Lord works in mysterious ways. And if HE is using Tim Tebow to show today's youth that it's OK being a good Christian who isn't afraid to talk openly about his salvation, who am I to question HIS methods.
I would agree that God does not care about football (or any other professional sport) and it is silly to suggest that He has any real effect on the outcome of these games. Tebow has never said that, though - he is thankful to be blessed with the ability he has. He has often said there’s no pressure and that he is paid to play a game he loves. I can certainly believe that God would be happy that Tebow uses his fame to spread the Gospel.
Hear it and see it from Achmed himself!
The Lord works in mysterious ways. And if HE is using Tim Tebow to show today’s youth that it’s OK being a good Christian who isn’t afraid to talk openly about his salvation, who am I to question HIS methods.
Amen to that. And football has such a large audience that the message is reaching many. Praise God.
Merry Christmas to you as well.
They are just getting started for the upcoming election of the muslime in chief.
Here’s - “Achmed Jingle Bombs”
One for the season
I beat you by 27 seconds!!
31S = Frisbee expert using circuit boards. (comeback to your 11C tagline)
Merry Christmas (just to spite Eric Holder)
Not familiar with that MOS. I googled it and came up with Military Police. They used to be 95B when I was in.
Merry Christmas to you, and the Lord’s blessings on you and yours.
Yep - my first thought too - it's not about Tebow, it's about the "religion of peace".
HAA! One for the holidays!
A Muslim propaganda piece. How liberal of you!
I wonder how that's working out in places where they outnumber Christians.
Both of you, SILENCE! I can't hear my bomb vest ticking.
Merry Christmas! ;-)
