Justin Smith writes of American Christians and Congressmen that play the three monkeys – hear no evil, see no evil and speak no evil (whatever the order is). Christians in Muslim dominated nations are experiencing ethnic cleansing (or as Justin writes – religious cleansing). You may hear a peep here and there, BUT we should hear a roar of outrage over this indignity!
There is a war going on! The motivators behind Islam – i.e. those we call Radical Muslims – are determined to exact global Islamic domination. Our politicians and journalists are so fearful of being called prejudiced racists they are afraid to note the global extermination of Christians by Muslims. This politically correct fear is so extant that Radical Islam is growing in America so much that we are blinded by the Islamic self-claim that the majority of Muslims are Moderate. AND YET the majority of Mosques and American-Islamic organizations are closely related to funding from Radical Islamic interests in Saudi Arabia or aligned with the Radical Islam of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Well that’s my two-cents. Read Justin’s much more eloquent essay below.
Where Are The Saints?

America in general and Christianity specifically have been under attack by Islam for the past forty years, and a renewed clash of Western civilization and Islam essentially has become a very real war, in which Jews and Christians are killed to amplify Islam’s assumed religious superiority; and yet, many prominent Christian theologians have become accomplices of jihad, by wasting precious time and resources on futile dialogues, rather than condemning and rejecting the concepts of jihad/Holy War, martyrdom and a life that begins only after death, in the face of the self-appointed leaders of Islam.
With the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1989, Islam began to march towards a new ascendancy in many parts of the world, and, in no small part, Islam’s goals have since been aided by Barack Obama’s policies, which support Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda terrorists in several Islamic nations, over dictators who kept the islamofascists checked and were U.S. allies; Obama’s domestic policies also attack U.S. Christians, as seen in a military briefing on October 17, 2013 at Ft Hood, TX, when soldiers were told that Christian and Tea Party groups could be representative of right wing terrorist groups, and, the soldiers were warned to be careful of donating money to such groups, in order to avoid prosecution under the Uniform Military Code of Justice.
The persecution of Christians has increased significantly throughout the world over the past decade, especially in the 57 member nations of the Organization for Islamic Cooperation. A staggering 100,000 Christians are murdered annually within these nations, because of their faith, according to Vatican spokesman Monsieur Silvano Maria Tomassi; and, Persecution.org president Jeff King recently told FoxNews that “two-hundred million Christians currently live under persecution.”
Since 1998, thousands of Christians have been killed in Egypt, Pakistan and Nigeria, with 10,000 of those murders occurring in Indonesia alone. Egypt’s Coptic Christians have battled the worst attacks on their minority numbers since the 14th century, as seen through the Midnight Mass murders and the rioting of January 2010, after Hosni Mubarak’s removal. And, last month, Taliban suicide-bombers killed 85 worshippers at All Saints’ Church, which was founded in 1883 in Peshawar, Pakistan; Christians were also targeted by islamofascists during an attack on a shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya, in which al-Shabaab terrorists released people who could answer questions about Islam and proceeded to kill 70 other people.
Most of Iraq’s Christians have fled the country or been murdered, since Saddam Hussein’s overthrow. In August 2004, five churches were bombed in Baghdad and Mosul. Seven more churches were bombed on one single day in July 2009, and the bombings have continued right through last week; with Assad’s regime in Syria under attack by Al Qaeda and other Islamofascist groups, much the same scenario is currently playing itself out in Syria and an increase in religious cleansing will eventually turn Syria into another base and safe-haven for the world’s islamofascists.
Christians… tortured, raped and murdered by being burned alive in fire-pits and beheaded in the most horrible fashion, as Muslims dance around their victims almost as though this is entertainment or a great noble deed. And these barbarians call themselves “civilized” and Islam “a religion of peace.”
The islamofascists have a saying, “First the Saturday People, then the Sunday People,” which means “first we kill the Jews, then we kill the Christians.” When one looks at Islam in this context, through the words of its leaders, it is baffling to see such a lack of concern, anxiety, action or advocacy on the part of Christians in the United States.
America will be hard-pressed to win this war, as long as career politicians are willing to accept $2 million dollar bribes, like the $2 million then Sen. Joe Biden accepted from Iran in 2004, and as long as universities take $26 million dollar “donations” from Islamic princes, just as Harvard did in 2006; our education system and government has become ever more politicized, and they tolerate and even encourage the rise of anti-American, anti-Christian movements based on feelings of group grievance and victimhood, as some “teachers”/propagandists direct impressionable students to observe the “numerous misdeeds perpetrated by the U.S. against third world nations,” and especially the Islamic world: This emboldens Muslims who see any U.S. compromise and conciliation as weakness and a sign of their own impending victory.
On September 12, 2006, at the University of Regensburg, Germany, Pope Benedict gave a wide-ranging lecture, titled “Faith, Reason, and the University-Memories and Reflections.” Pope Benedict proclaimed that God cannot ask one to do something unreasonable, because He created reason. Benedict further explained that Islam, on the other hand, is predicated on the idea that God may overturn law and human reason. “Allah may demand immoral or unreasonable behavior, for he is all-powerful and demands absolute submission.”
In this clash of civilizations, America needs to criticize any group, person or culture deserving of such criticism by their words and actions, especially if these actions include crimes against humanity. Americans and the Western world must drop the ethos of relativist respect for non-Western religions and cultures, especially when they do not deserve our respect and the term “respect” becomes a euphemism for “appeasement.”
One must wonder over the silence of so many Western Christians, Protestant and Catholic alike, and our pastors and ministers and government officials. As noted by Representative Frank Wolf (R-VA) in January 2013, far too many are seemingly not “pained by these accounts of persecution”, and they are not using their sphere of influence to raise the profile of this issue through sermons, articles and interviews. But, while Wolf castigated 300 Christian leaders for their “lack of engagement”, two fine Christian leaders in Murfreesboro, TN, Reverend Darrell Whaley (Kingdom Ministries Worship Center) and Pastor Alan Jackson (World OutReach Church), had already been at the forefront of this battle for quite some time.
Dr. Justin Akujieze’s words ring even more urgent now, than the day I met him (November 11, 2011), and he told a horrific, heart-wrenching story of the islamofascists essentially conquering the northern half of Nigeria. This same day, he also made an impassioned plea for his country and called for action: “Today is the last day and we must not wither. We must confront this (Islam) head-on and together we will win.”
Many of us in America recognize the cautionary tale revealed in the words of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a Lutheran pastor, who was executed for speaking out against the Nazis: “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” And Islam today represents every bit as much evil as yesteryear’s National Socialism.

Justin Smith read the cross post on SlantRight 2.0 and added a comment on his Facebook letting me know there was more to the post I entitled “If Radical Islam is 20-25% of All Muslims…”
Justin wanted me to edit the original post and add some new information as an addendum at the end. However I am going to add Justin’s new information as part two and create yet another title as I did in part one.
Here is the comment intro from Facebook introducing part two:
Hey John…You beat me with my own release…too cool My Friend. I was actually sort of formulating this as an article around a greater kernel of thought, and I had actually posted the introduction and precursor to this just minutes before, but I guess You missed it. Well, this would have been the first half of the article, just in case You may find it just as interesting and wish to attach it as an addendum…
Islamic Terrorism and Islam
By Justin Smith
June 7, 2012
Large numbers of learned, educated people were speaking out against Hitler and his Brown Shirts and Mussolini by as early as 1933, but Americans stood by very nearly incomprehensibly not understanding that they too were at risk until the third part of the Axis Powers, Japan, attacked on Dec 7th, 1941. In between these years, however, Americans did not know or fully understand what the Europeans were suffering under the birth of the National Socialist (Nazi) Party; they consequently could afford to disbelieve the political refugees who shouted in despair that America would be next in a long list of nations suffering misfortune at the hands of the Nazis!
About Islamic fundamentalists, on the contrary, we now know the imminent and immediate threat that they pose on a worldwide basis and through a worldwide agenda as pushed by the Wahhabiists of Saudi Arabia and the Muslim Brothers of Egypt and their minions and associates in Hezbollah, Hamas, Al Qaeda, Jaamat el-Islami, Islamic Maghreb and a host of others. Please recall that not even two months after the tragedy of 9-11 Bin Laden proved the true intent of the Islamic world, and his words reveal the truth in my contention that a Reverse Crusade is currently underway against the entire Western Civilization….a war of religion they call a Holy War, Jihad. For these Reverse Crusaders the West is a world to be conquered and subjugated by Islam!
Osama and his followers called the UN and Sec. General Kofi Annan criminals in a video which also threatened France, Italy, the UK and was only lacking the histrionics of Hitler to revisit the horrors of fascism because make no mistake, at its very core, its heart, lies the worse of anything imaginable that fascism can and will implement; however, “in its essence, this is a war of religion and those who deny it are liars” (quote Osama bin Laden), and in this I am in agreement with the enemy!
Osama went on to say…”The Arab and Muslim leaders who sit at the UN and share its politics place themselves outside Islam. They are Unfaithful…Those who claim the legitimacy of international institutions give up the only authentic legitimacy…which comes from the Koran. And finally, “The overwhelming majority of the Muslims have been happy with the attacks on the Twin Towers. Our polls confirm it.” Yes, unbelievably Osama had run a scientific poll, but remember, he was highly educated by the Royal family after the death of his father. From Afghanistan to Sudan, from Palestine to Pakistan, from Malaysia to Iran, from Egypt to Iraq, from Algeria to Senegal, from Libya to Chad, from Kenya to Syria, from Morocco to Lebanon, from Yemen to Indonesia and from Somalia to Saudi Arabia, the hate for America and the West swells like a fire fed by the wind!
If you have read this post without reading part one, you will find richer context by so reading the first part: If Radical Islam is 20-25% of All Muslims…
Hate mongering Islamofascists or Anti-Islamic EDL
John R. Houk
© November 18, 2010
The United Kingdom’s English Defence League (EDL) has had a reputation of being way on the Right and anti-Semitic. Now days the EDL are still on the Right yet have moved more to the center and have abandoned anti-Semitism. The EDL past is a concern and yet their primary emphasis today is an anti-Islam platform.
For Europeans which includes the Brits, even being anti-Islam still places EDL in the public view of racists.
With this information about the EDL I was pointed toward a snippet from a Michael Savage radio broadcast wondering why Muslims spewing out hate toward British soldiers and the government get a pass, while an EDL counter-protest get police harassment and arrests:
