Here is something they don’t tell you; in response to the rise in Islamic terrorist activity around the globe, 911, Spain, Bali, London and so on, the rank and file Muslims have pretty much convinced the world that these are the activities of extremists. The true Muslim is peaceful, loving.
Okay, that’s the bit they do say. And there is some truth in the first part. That the terrorism had been the work of extremists. But the rest?
Lies. Lies. Lies.
The difference between the Islamic extremist and the Moderate is that the former is prepared to act on his hatred, whilst the latter is not. This is a definition much closer to the truth.
A new oxymoron for the 21st century: Moderate Muslim.
If you could convince a Muslim to be completely honest (difficult because their religion allows them to lie if it is for the greater good of Islam), they would tell you that they hate Westerners. They despise our culture, our morals and of course, our religion. Given the opportunity to act without consequences, they would kill us all.
Here’s a few quotes from the Koran.
Allah is an enemy to unbelievers. – Sura 2:98
On unbelievers is the curse of Allah. – Sura 2:161
Slay them wherever ye find them and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter. – 2:191
Muslims are harsh against the unbelievers, merciful to one another. – 48:25
Muhammad is Allah’s apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another. Through them, Allah seeks to enrage the unbelievers. – 48:29
Prophet! Make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites and deal sternly with them. Hell shall be their home, evil their fate. – 66:9
This is not a complete list by any means. The Koran is seething with hatred and violence.
Islamic apologists have been very active in promoting Islam as a peaceful, tolerant religion. They even tell us that the name, ‘Islam’ means peace. Any scholar would tell you it means surrender or submission. Both words have very different meanings to the word, Peace.
The Koran calls Believers to submit to Allah and to subdue non believers until they also, believe and submit.
Muslims will tell you that they believe in Jesus. True. But what about Him do they believe?
Muslims believe Jesus was a prophet. They do not believe He is the Son of God.
Understand. No matter how convincing the apologist, regardless of what your President believes, this is an evil religion with violence and hatred at its core.
Just what does Mr Obama think of Islam? He is quoted as saying, “Islam has a proud tradition if tolerance.” Yeah, that’s a goody. How about, “Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism, it is an important part of promoting peace.”
Lee Rigby, the British soldier who was hacked to death on a London street was one of the more publicised incidents of this peaceful religion. As they butchered him his attackers ranted, “We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you”.
In the wake of this cowardly attack British prime minister David Cameron was quoted as saying that there was nothing in the Koran that justified this murder.
Nothing? Something else the attackers ranted whilst they waited for the police (and the cameras) was, “The Koran commands us to kill those who kill Muslims.”
Lee Rigby had served in Afghanistan. He was fighting in a war. Lee Rigby was a hero who put his life on the line for the freedom of others. His slayers were not even soldiers.
In my opinion they should receive the same penalty as any foreign agent operating behind our lines. Yes, their British citizenship is clearly just a cover.
These men should be summarily executed.
Instead, David Cameron waffles on about how exceptional this behaviour is, coming as it does from the Religion of Peace.
Get the picture.
Okay, what is the answer?
Prayer. Then more prayer. Things are changing: many Muslims are giving their lives to Jesus. Jesus is appearing in the dreams of these people, calling them to salvation. And many are heeding the call.
That’s the good news.
The bad news us that there will be a lot of pain ahead.
Whilst our leaders are supporting the Islamic agenda the road can only be tough. I believe that Mr Obama should be charged with treason for his open support of Islam. During WWII if an American leader had openly supported Hitler or Hirohito that would have been the result. Today, in the wake of horrific terrorism, Obama can get away with words of support for these people. It is upside-down.
Which brings us back to prayer. This is the arena in which we will win: the spiritual arena. When Christians pray we pray to a real God, the Creator of the universe and everything in it.
Muslims do not. Their’s are empty words falling on deaf ears. At the Head of their church there is nothing. Perhaps this may explain why, despite the wealth of some Islamic nations they still live in sixth century doldrums.
