I can’t see Jesus doing anything like this

 

I’m not sure offering a rational response (informed by the stories in the bible about Jesus) would make a difference to protesters like this. If it would, though, I would point them to the stories about Jesus’ interactions with Samaritans.

It’s not a perfect analogy. Christians and Muslims do share some history in a similar way to Samaritans and Jews, however, enough so that I am convinced that people who protest like this get Jesus totally and completely wrong.
