Defeat the Islamic Invasion with Christ


John R. Houk

© July 20, 2017

 

I just finished reading an interesting essay from the Acton Institute by Ed West. The essay is about the Muslim migration to Europe. West notes that the Europe has become a secularist society in which the Christian influence that developed Western Culture and mores has been pushed to near non-existence.

 

Then West notes that a Europe that replaced Christianity with religion-killing Multiculturalism. A lying Multiculturalism that claims to accept everything that is diverse EXCEPT Christianity.

 

West does not specifically spell out a solution for the Muslim invasion rather he dwells on how it happened and its current affects.

 

Here is my suggestion to reverse the curse of observant Islam in Europe which will be a great inoculation for America’s future. BUT my suggestion will drive Leftists, Multiculturalists and – wait for it – Muslims – crazy.

 

It is time for Christian Americans to evangelize Europe to return faith to Europeans. The obstacle to evangelism is that secularist Multiculturalism is so entrenched that Europe’s hate-speech laws that look away when it comes to Islam is avidly anti-Christian. Until those hate-speech laws are reversed to allow Christians to criticize Islam as much as Muslims are able to criticize Christianity in some of the most vile hate-preaching imaginable, Christian evangelism will have to avoid speaking the truth about Islam as compared to the Christian faith.

 

Christian evangelism will have to focus on the power of Christ’s Redemptive purpose for humanity and hammer the meaning of the Love of God which is finding Salvation. Even that will be a fine line because Biblical morality is harshly divergent from Secular Humanist morality. When Leftist alternative lifestyles criticize God’s morality, Evangelists will need to confront the criticism in the same manner the Early Christians confronted Roman polytheistic cosmopolitanism. Which was with steadfast faith in Christ without violence and willing to become a public yet moral spectacle even if it ends with a martyrdom quite different from Muslim martyrdom.

 

Muslim martyrdom is willing to die while killing as many non-Muslims as possible.

 

Christian martyrdom is to die alone or with fellow Believers as an example of faith in God. Christian martyrdom has a spiritual purpose to influence non-Christians that joy in Christianity is vastly different than selfish secularist joy which is only about self-gratification.

 

Devoted praying Christians believing in the unseen power of God over the seen power of a Leftist State and the seen power of Muslim violent Jihad, will prevail. THE KEY is the word “devoted”.

So you get the idea of the selfless devotion in prayer and faith in God that I am talking about, right? This is not a “let us bow our heads and pray” for five-seconds. This evangelistic prayer to revive Christianity in Europe and revitalize Christian faith in America, is a get down and get to work spiritually to cast down those unseen enemies that will eventually lose anyway if you read the end of The Revelation of John the Apostle.

 

Here is a character of evangelism that is work and will succeed and Christ will add to the invisible Church hastening the return of King Jesus from the Epistle to the Ephesians:

 

Therefore be imitators of God [copy Him and follow His example], as well-beloved children [imitate their father].

 

And walk in love, [esteeming and delighting in one another] as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us, a [a]slain offering and sacrifice to God [for you, so that it became] a sweet fragrance.

 

For once you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of Light [lead the lives of those native-born to the Light].

 

For the fruit (the effect, the product) of the Light or[a]the Spirit [consists] in every form of kindly goodness, uprightness of heart, and trueness of life.

 

10 And try to learn [in your experience] what is pleasing to the Lord [let your lives be constant proofs of what is most acceptable to Him].

 

11 Take no part in and have no fellowship with the fruitless deeds and enterprises of darkness, but instead [let your lives be so in contrast as to] [b]expose and reprove and convict them.

 

12 For it is a shame even to speak of or mention the things that [such people] practice in secret.

 

13 But when anything is exposed and reproved by the light, it is made visible and clear; and where everything is visible and clear there is light.

 

14 Therefore He says, Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall shine (make day dawn) upon you and give you light.

 

15 Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent people),

 

16 Making the very most of the time [buying up each opportunity], because the days are evil.

 

17 Therefore do not be vague and thoughtless and foolish, but understanding and firmly grasping what the will of the Lord is.

 

18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery; but ever be filled and stimulated with the [Holy] Spirit.

 

19 Speak out to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, offering praise with voices [[c]and instruments] and making melody with all your heart to the Lord,

 

20 At all times and for everything giving thanks in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God the Father. (Ephesians 5: 1-2, 8-20; 6: 10-18 AMPC)

The spiritual cause and cure of the ‘European intifada’

 

By Ed West

July 14, 2017

Part of the Acton Blog RELIGION & LIBERTY TRANSATLANTIC

Acton Institute

 

At the start of the Syrian migration crisis, an Israeli security official warned of a coming “European intifada.” Few noticed it at the time. But after a series of attacks on largely Jewish targets in France and Belgium, the new reality finally hit home in January 2015, when armed men opened fire at the Paris offices of the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo. Since then, terrorist atrocities have escalated through Paris, Nice, Belgium, Sweden, Berlin, and London. They include the murder of a priest by two Islamists in Normandy as he was saying Mass.

 

Charlie Hebdo is a tedious and tasteless publication that makes fun of dead children and has predictable 1968 views on almost everything, except one of the most sacred: criticism of Islam. The day of the massacre Hebdo featured as its front page a caricature of Michel Houellebecq, whose controversial new novel was published that week. Soumission is set in a France in the near future in which an Islamist party has come to power with the connivance of both the Left and Right in order to defeat the nativist National Front. Houellebecq, already in trouble for criticising France’s second largest religion in a previous work, has since moved to Ireland, seeing France as no longer safe. Soumission became a mega-bestseller. Also topping the charts that week was a polemic by Éric Zemmour, a journalist of Jewish-North African descent who has criticised mass immigration and the “demographic tsunami” it has brought.

 

The recent attacks in Manchester and London came as another important book was selling in vast numbers, The Strange Death of Europe by Douglas Murray, which has spent weeks at the top of the Sunday Times charts despite this subject being not the sort of thing one talks about in polite company. Murray’s book follows James Kirchick’s equally bleak-sounding The End of Europe: Dictators, Demagogues, and the Coming Dark Ages. In his book, Kirchick warns:

 

A Europe unmoored from the Enlightenment values it brought to the world, ignorant of and unwilling to protect its civilizational achievements, captive to chauvinist demagogues, indisposed to defend itself, bereft of its Jews, estranged from America, cowed before Russia, and reverted to its traditional state of nature with nations pursuing mercenary self-interest at the expense of unity would not only spell the end of Europe as we know it. Such a collapse would usher in nothing less than a new dark age.

 

Despite this, Kirchick is more optimistic than the title suggests. He concludes that the continent may get out of its current mess, if it can pool its resources and enjoy closer integration.

 

Others are not so optimistic. In Germany, historian Rolf Peter Sieferle has made even more of a splash. His account of German political psychology and its effects, Finis Germania, has enjoyed good sales just as it has been roundly condemned by the prestige press. Die Zeit called it a book of “brazen obscenity.” (He has not been able to enjoy his surprise bestseller, having taken his own life last September.)

 

A former socialist who grew disillusioned with his generation’s naivety, Sieferle wrote that “[a] society that can no longer distinguish between itself and the forces that would dissolve it is living morally beyond its means.” In fact, he argued, Germans actually want to disappear because of a belief that Germans are uniquely guilty due to the Holocaust – that they carry a blood guilt as “the absolute enemies of our common humanity,” becoming “a scapegoat people.”

 

This was perhaps why in 2015 German Chancellor Angela Merkel made the momentous decision to open her nation’s borders. The numbers involved, and the future implications for our continent, are staggering; the reasons for her decision remain a mystery. Earlier that year the chancellor had told Reem Sahwil, a 14-year-old Palestinian girl who wanted to stay in Germany, that if she allowed Sahwil’s family to stay in Germany, all Africans would want to join them. Germany “cannot cope with that,” she said.

 

Many in the German media criticised the coldness of Chancellor Merkel’s response and so when in late August migration pressure looked like overwhelming Greece and Italy, the Germans snapped. In August 2015, Merkel announced her open door policy, cloaking it in moral terms. “Universal civil rights were so far tied together with Europe and its history,” she said. “If Europe fails on the question of refugees, its close connection with universal civil rights will be destroyed. It won’t be the Europe we imagine.” As she told them, “Wir Schaffen das” – “We can do this.” What followed were scenes of jubilation among Germans as they welcomed refugees into their towns, as Murray writes:

 

As the trains came into the stations and the migrants got off and went through the crowds some locals wolf-whistled and gave them high-fives. Human chains of volunteers handed out food and gifts, including sweets and teddy bears for the children. It was not just an expression of the Willkommenskultur (“welcoming culture”) that Germany says it likes to practise. These migrants were not merely being welcomed. They were being celebrated, as though they were the local football team returning triumphant, or heroes returning from a war.

 

In just a year Germany accepted a total of 1.1 million migrants. Most were not Syrian, and most were not refugees as defined by the UN. Most were young men, and most intended to bring their family with them; once those relatives are taken into account, Germany will have experienced nothing short of a demographic revolution. At a time when low-skilled jobs are disappearing this is a potential explosive cocktail.

 

Kirchick wrote that “historical guilt for the crimes of Nazism inspired an open-door refugee policy as ill considered as it was well intentioned, the negative consequences of which will be felt for generations.” Among the new Germans was the Sahwil family, which was given permission to stay at the end of 2015. The young girl gave a little-noticed interview in which she said she hoped to return home one day … when Israel “is no longer there.”

 

Merkel’s executive decision was only an acceleration of a long-running trend that began after the Second World War with the first migrant workers in Britain, France, Germany, and the Low Countries. They were there for economic reasons, and people did not expect them to stay, but as Western Europe became diverse, much to the discomfort and opposition of people outside the political class, all sorts of rationalizations were offered. Yet as Murray accurately points out, at the heart of this was a spiritual void.

 

On a profound level, we imported religious people because of the absence of our own faith. Western Europe took immigrants from the Islamic world just as it was adopting bohemian culture mores, characterised by more liberal attitudes to drug and alcohol use, and extra-marital sex. The new “bourgeois-bohemian” middle class combined this countercultural individualism with the materialistic values of capitalism. Across 10 Western European countries, church attendance fell from 38.4 to 16.6 percent between 1975 and 1998. Europe became a consumerist paradise with an economic model that depended on demographic growth, which only religious societies can provide. In France, Caucasian women who practise religion have a half-child fertility advantage over the non-religious; in Austria self-identified atheists have fertility rates of just 0.86 children per woman.

 

It was assumed, if unspoken, that Muslim migrants – dressed in suits, often moderate beer drinkers – would become godless or at least less observant upon breathing European air, their children even more so. It’s safe to say there are now few people left who have not been disabused of this notion. Muslims arrived in a continent going through a revolutionary social change which made the path to integration complex and difficult. Unsurprisingly their sons, feeling the sense of alienation common to second-generation migrants sometimes feel little attachment to the national culture, preferring a strong, global brotherhood of faith that offers the comfort of certainty and the heroic narrative. And yet when the UK government repeatedly emphasises “British values” during anti-extremism initiatives, they find it hard to articulate those same values without the obvious one: Christianity. Instead, they limply define Britishness by tolerance and diversity, almost as if these things are a replacement faith.

 

… Which they sort of are. Diversity offers Europeans a form of redemption, something heavily influenced by the tragedy of 1914 to 1945 but also deeply linked to our guilty culture. When the body of three-year-old Syrian boy Aylan Kurdi, a Syrian washed up on a Turkish beach, it became the most powerful image of the decade. Yet in the Arab world, there was little sense that this was their fault. As Murray writes, “there was not anything there remotely like the introspection and self-accusation indulged in by Western politicians and media.” Indeed, the Gulf Arab states have taken virtually no Syrian refugees.

 

Europe has a guilt and savior complex. As a result, it seems to be replacing the atonement of the Savior’s death with its own.

 

Much of Europe’s behaviour since 1945 has been an attempt to exit history, a tired continent looking for peace and inner calm, sick of the wars of religion, ideology and race that have dogged it for centuries; in doing so it can also finally achieve its redemption. The tragedy is that, in doing so, it has almost certainly ensured that their posterity will not get that peace. Murray concludes that “[i]t is always possible that the tide of faith that began its long, withdrawing roar of retreat in the nineteenth century will come back in again.” One must hope. Together with their traditional faith, Europeans must recover their lost Burkean notion of society being a compact between the living, the dead and those yet unborn.

Blasphemy Law is Revenge Instrument in Pakistan


John R. Houk

© July 19, 2017

 

American 1st Amendment Truth is a Death Sentence in Pakistan

 

And yet another Pakistani Christian is being accused of blaspheming the false-prophet Muhammad as a tool of revenge in a Muslim/Christian argument.

 

Christians in Pakistan are treated as subhuman class of dirt even being denied proper avenues of education. Why? Because Muslims are taught in their revered writings – Quran, Hadith and Sira/Sunnah – that Muslims are superior are to ALL non-Muslims and those non-Muslims should be denigrated for refusing to believe in Islam.

 

Needless to say, equal justice for all people is something that is extremely absent in Islamic dominated societies.

 

The lack of justice and equal rights are particularly apparent in Pakistan’s society when Christians risk voicing their opinion that Christ is the Son of God and Muhammad is a false-prophet. This will get you beaten or killed by a Muslim mob or escaping public Muslim retribution, put in jail being charged with the capital crime of blasphemy.

 

Yet burning a Church, torching a cross or destroying a Holy Bible will not be treated as a crime in Pakistan.

 

The Pakistani Christian Shahzad Masih is finding this hatred of Christians on a first-hand basis.

 

I was first made aware of Shahzad Masih’s plight in an email alert from Assist News. I discovered greater details from World Watch Monitor (WWM) on Shahzad’s persecution. Some of the details differ. For example, Assist News has Shahzad as age 17 and WWM lists him as age 16. Assist News writes from the perspective of the mother listed as Hina Shafaqat. WWM uses the father’s perspective who is listed Shafaqat implying the last name of Masih. One should realize among Pakistani Christians “Masih” is a Christian honorific.

 

I am cross posting Assist News first for getting the story to me and then the WWM article which has better details.

ISLAMISTS IN PAKISTAN ACCUSE CHRISTIAN MINOR OF BLASPHEMING ISLAM’S PROPHET

Shahzad Masih – Morning Star News courtesy of family

No motive given for alleged comment.

 

LAHOREPAKISTAN (ANS — July 18, 2017) – A member of an Islamic extremist group in Pakistan has accused a Christian minor of blasphemy after the boy had an argument with a Muslim, sources said.

 

Hina Shafaqat, mother of 17-year-old Shahzad Masih, told Morning Star News (http://morningstarnews.org) that her son had been wrongly implicated in the case by a Muslim colleague with whom he had a quarrel 10 days ago, and the family has not been able to locate him since his arrest.

 

Working as a sweeper at Shamim Riaz Hospital in Dinga town, Gujrat District, Punjab Province for the past nine months, Masih had an altercation with hospital pharmacy employee Ishtiaq Ahmed Jalali, she said. A senior medical officer at the hospital intervened and calmed the quarrel, but “Jalali nurtured a grudge against my son and has now plotted this case against him to settle the score,” she said.

 

“I’ve raised Shahzad as a devout Roman Catholic – I’ve never taught my children to hate people belonging to other faiths, which is why I am sure that my son is being wrongly accused of blasphemy,” she said. “The police arrested my son on Friday [July 14], and since then we have been trying to locate his whereabouts.”

 

Neither the Dinga police nor the Kharian police said they have him in their custody, she said.

 

“We have searched so many police stations but have failed to trace him,” she said, adding that police were torturing the family mentally by not disclosing her son’s location or revealing his well-being.

 

According to the Pakistan correspondent for Morning Star News, Masih, the oldest of five children, is the family breadwinner along with his father, a daily wage mason. Shahzad Masih went to school until grade four, after which his family could not afford to further education.

 

“We, and the family of my brother-in-law Rafaqat, had to relocate to a relative’s house on Friday [July 14] to avoid any backlash from the local Muslims, who are being instigated by an Islamist outfit,” she said.

 

More than 30 other Christian families also live in Mohalla Railway Station of Dinga town.

 

Dinga Police Station House Officer (SHO) Inspector Shahbaz Ahmad dodged questions about facts of the case, telling Morning Star News only, “The accused has committed blasphemy.”

 

Morning Star News stated that the police official did note that a First Information Report (FIR No. 273/17) was registered against Masih under Section 295-C, which calls for death or life imprisonment to those found guilty of blaspheming against Muhammad, the prophet of Islam.

 

According to the FIR, complainant Nadeem Ahmed – president of the Dinga chapter of Islamist outfit Tehreek Tahafuz-e-Islam Pakistan – alleged that he was sitting in his electronic appliances shop when Ishtiaq Ahmed Jalali came and informed him that Masih had uttered derogatory remarks against Muhammad. Jalali is also a member of Tehreek Tahafuz-e-Islam Pakistan.

 

“Upon hearing this, we sent a boy to Shahzad Masih’s home and asked him to come to the Popular Mobile Shop for clearing the issue,” Ahmed alleged in the FIR. “When Masih came there, we asked him about the accusation, to which he again started abusing and cursing the Holy Prophet. Some people who had gathered at the shop by then also witnessed the blasphemy done by Masih.”

 

Ahmed alleged that the Christian boy “managed to escape from the shop.”

 

Inspector Ahmad declined to comment on why he thought Masih had committed blasphemy or if he had admitted to it.

 

“You know very well I cannot repeat the blasphemous words,” he said, avoiding questions as to what could have motivated the Christian to do such a thing. He also did not offer any plausible explanation as to how Masih was able to flee from the scene in the presence of a large number of upset Muslims.

 

“Talk to the SP, because we just registered the case and forwarded it to him for further action,” he said before putting down the phone.

 

Repeated attempts to reach Superintendent of Police (SP) Maaz Zafar failed as his telephone operator said that the senior official was busy and would return the call later. At this writing, however, Zafar had not contacted Morning Star News.

 

Attorneys Riaz Anjum and Kashif Naimat from the Pakistan Center for Law and Justice (PCLJ) told Morning Star News from Dinga that they had offered legal and financial assistance to Shahzad Masih’s family as he was one of the main providers of income for the family, and his arrest had badly degraded their finances.

 

“The case is clearly fabricated, because the FIR does not state any motive for Shahzad Masih’s alleged blasphemy,” Anjum said. “It’s very unfortunate that Pakistani police book people in blasphemy cases before even trying to ascertain the facts. Now the boy will be made to suffer in prison like so many other innocent people who have fallen victim to the harsh blasphemy laws.”

 

He said that their investigation had corroborated the account of the Christian family.

 

“It is true that Masih had a fight with a pharmacy worker over a week ago, and the matter was resolved by a doctor,” Anjum said. “Local sources told us that Jalali bore a grudge against Masih, and he had connived with the complainant, Nadeem Ahmad, to settle his personal score with the Christian boy.”

Pakistani Christian boy, 16, charged with blasphemy for discussing his faith

 

By World Watch Monitor

July 19, 2017

 

Pakistani Muslims call for the hanging of Asia Bibi, a Christian woman on death row for blasphemy since 2010, at a protest in Karachi on 13 October 2016. That was the day Pakistan’s Supreme Court delayed her appeal after one of the judges stepped down.

 

A 16-year-old Pakistani Christian boy has been charged with blasphemy for talking with a colleague about his belief in Jesus, the second such incident in a month.

 

Shahzad Masih, 16, a cleaner at a hospital in the city of Dinga (near the religiously conservative city of Gujrat), was arrested on 13 July after his colleague, Ishtiaq Ahmed Jalali, accused him of insulting Islam’s prophet Muhammad, a crime punishable with death in Pakistan.

 

A month earlier, on 15 June, Ashfaq Masih, 28, was arrested in the nearby city of Lahore for saying he believed Jesus to be the final prophet.

 

The latest incident took place at the Shameem Riaz Polyclinic. Jalali, who works at the hospital pharmacy, is a member of Tehreek-e-Tahfuz-e-Islam Pakistan, an organisation that strives to protect the name and honour of Muhammad. It belongs to the Barelvi school [Blog Editor: Barelvi extremist Islamism has developed according Left-Wing news site HuffPo] of Islamic thought, which is considered “moderate” and has even faced criticism from other Muslims for its “polytheism” of worshipping at shrines. Barelvis are known for the special respect they afford to Muhammad – more so than any other Islamic school of thought – and are chief supporters of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws.

 

Shahzad Masih’s father, Shafaqat, who works as a labourer, told World Watch Monitor that the argument related to who Christians worship.

 

One of the relatives of Shahzad Masih’s colleague Ishtiaq Ahmed Jalali, a leader of Tehreek-e-Tahfuz-e-Islam Pakistan, told a local TV station a day after Masih’s arrest: “If the blasphemer is acquitted of the charge then each member of our organisation would attack him.”

 

“My son told him that we follow Jesus and then their discussion became sour, at which point a doctor intervened and calmed them down,” he said.

 

The police complaint was lodged by another man, Nadeem Ahmed, who claims to have called Shahzad Masih from his mobile phone repair shop, which is beside the hospital, to ask him about what he’d said. In his report, Ahmed states that Masih repeated his “abusive words” against Muhammad and then fled.

 

Police reports in Pakistan, called First Information Reports (FIR), are often key in court cases, though the veracity of the claims in such reports is often the subject of contention.

 

Shafaqat Masih says that two days prior to the lodging of the FIR, his son’s colleague, Ishtiaq Jalali, told his son that Christians worship at the shrines of Muslim sages.

 

“My son told him that he didn’t know about this and he would ask me about it,” Shafaqat Masih said. “Then on 13 July, I was at work when he called me at around 4pm. He had returned from hospital but they asked him to come to the mobile phone repair shop, which is in front of the hospital.

 

“I told him that it would take me some time to get there, so he should call his uncle, Rafaqat, whom I also called on the phone to go to him. I arrived at around 7pm at the hospital, where they all had gathered. We tried to intervene, but they did not let us talk. Then they told us that they did not want to make the matter public and wanted to settle it amicably. At the same time, they kept calling others to join them and a large number of clerics gathered while we three were all alone [Shahzad, his father and uncle].

 

“One of the clerics told me that the head of a nearby madrassah had called them to the madrassah to settle the matter, after which the entire mob went there.

 

“[His uncle] Rafaqat and I also went there, but I sent Rafaqat to go inside along with Shahzad, who they had in their custody. The leader of the group argued that the crime committed by Shahzad was punishable with death alone. While they were discussing this, two police vans arrived. The chief policeman asked for Shahzad, but they were reluctant to give him up and only handed him over on the promise that the decision would be taken the next morning. As I was standing outside, I saw the police taking Shahzad along with them, but since then they haven’t allowed us to see him.”

 

The police chief, Shahbaz Hinjra, told a local newspaper that Masih was in their custody and that they were investigating the matter.

 

Former Punjab parliamentarian Tahir Naveed Chaudhry, leader of the largest Christian political party, told World Watch Monitor that he had personally investigated the matter and found that initial argument had centred over Shahzad Masih’s colleague’s attempts to convert him to Islam.

 

“When our people try to defend themselves and their faith then often it becomes an issue and later such cases are lodged,” he said.

 

One of Jalali’s relatives, Muhammad Saqib Shakeel Jalali, a leader of Tehreek-e-Tahfuz-e-Islam Pakistan, told a local TV station a day after Masih’s arrest: “If the blasphemer is acquitted of the charge then each member of our organisation would attack him.”

 

Pakistani Muslims line up to visit the tomb of [assassin] Mumtaz Qadri on the outskirts of Islamabad on 1 March 2017. Qadri was hanged in February 2016 for the murder of former Punjab Governor Salmaan Taseer, who criticised Pakistan’s blasphemy laws and defended Asia Bibi, a Christian woman on death row for blasphemy since 2010.

 

Masih’s father says he and his family have been on the run ever since. “We don’t even know what to eat and where to live,” he said.

 

His uncle, Rafaqat, told World Watch Monitor that there are about 25 Christian families in the area and no such incident had ever taken place before.

 

The Tehreek-e-Tahfuz-e-Islam Pakistan website claims that no suspect has yet been awarded the death penalty under Pakistan’s blasphemy laws, even though the Christian woman Asia Bibi has been on death row for blasphemy since 2010. The website also says that liberal Muslims want to amend the current blasphemy law and must be stopped – a key reason for the organisation’s founding 10 years ago. In April, a Muslim student was beaten to death in the city of Mardan following an accusation of blasphemy.

 

Several blasphemy cases have been registered before in Gujrat, one of the most conservative areas of the Punjab province. In August 2015, 15 Christians were accused of blasphemy after they used the word “apostle” to describe a pastor who had died years before. Then in July 2016, a Christian man was accused of blasphemy after a religious argument on the messaging service WhatsApp. Both cases are still pending in the court.

 

The Aasiya Noreen story

Aasiya Noreen, commonly known as Asia Bibi, received the death penalty in 2010 after she allegedly made derogatory comments about Islam’s prophet Muhammad during an argument with a Muslim woman.

While the two women were working together, the Muslim woman had refused water from Bibi on the grounds that it was “unclean” because it had been handled by a Christian.

The Muslim woman, together with her sister, were the only two witnesses in the case, but the defence failed to convince the appeals judges that their evidence lacked credibility.

In the High Court appeal hearing in October 2014, Bibi’s lawyer, Naeem Shakir, argued that the main complainant in the case, the local Muslim cleric Mohamed Salaam, had not heard Bibi blaspheme, and that his original complaint had been lodged five days after the women’s quarrel. Shakir argued in his appeal that during the trial the only reason given for this delay was “deliberation and consultation”, and said that Salaam had acknowledged this in court.

Salaam was filmed by an international film crew who made a film about Bibi in May/June 2014, saying that it is his religious obligation to defend the dignity of Muhammad and that is why he decided to be a witness before the court. He only heard Bibi allegedly confess to blasphemy when she had been brought before a village council several days after the quarrel.

Her other main accuser, Mohamed Imran, the owner of the field in which she worked, had not been present at the time of the quarrel either; he was away from the village.

Bibi’s case attracted widespread global attention, much of it critical of Pakistan’s anti-blasphemy laws, which critics contend are routinely abused as a pretext to settle personal scores. Two prominent Pakistani politicians were assassinated in 2010 after they spoke publicly in Bibi’s defence.

Linda Sarsour: Lying about Islamic History and Jihad

 

By Paul Sutliff 

July 9, 2017

Paul Sutliff on Civilization Jihad

 

This past week Linda Sarsour used the word jihad and spoke of resisting the administration and fighting against tyrants. People who want you to remain ignorant off the truth took to the Washington Post on Sunday to obfuscate the term “jihad.” What needs to be known is that her consistent usage of the term resistance and the constant reference to her feelings of angst against those who would keep Islamic terrorists from entering America fit perfectly in the last fatwa by the last Caliph in 1915.

 

The 1915 fatwa was discovered by Ambassador Morgenthau in 1915 and sent to America, where it was kept as top secret until the 1960s. This is extremely important to understand because it reveals that the federal government feared releasing this information in the United States may cause Muslims to rise up and commit acts of jihad at home. Linda Sarsour’s comments reveal that keeping this fatwa hidden has mis-educated Americans about what Islam truly believes in regards to the Islamic term “jihad.”

 

We are told we must learn from history or we are doomed to repeat it. This is why historical understanding of the term jihad is extremely important.  For this reason I am posting part of a chapter from my book Civilization Jihad and the Myth of Moderate Islam published in 2015.

 

In November 1915, a call for jihad was given by the Caliph Sheik-ul-Islam after the Ottoman Empire declared war against the Allies. Ambassador Morgenthau, described the event in his biography.

 

Sheik-ul-Islam published his proclamation, summoning the whole Moslem world to arise and massacre their Christian oppressors. “Oh, Moslems!” concluded this document. “Ye who are smitten with happiness and are on the verge of sacrificing your life and your goods for the cause of right, and of braving perils, gather now around the Imperial throne, obey the commands of the Almighty, who, in the Koran, promises us bliss in this and in the next world; embrace ye the foot of the Caliph’s throne and know ye that the state is at war with Russia, England, France, and their Allies, and that these are the enemies of Islam. The Chief of the believers, the Caliph, invites you all as Moslems to join in the Holy War!”[i]

 

According to the Ambassador this was distributed and read in mosques in “India, China, Persia, Egypt, Algiers, Tripoli, Morocco, and the like; in all these places it was read to the assembled multitudes and the populace was exhorted to obey the mandate.”[ii]BUT, what was also being distributed in the same areas was a pamphlet written in Arabic heavily filled with quotes from the Koran. This pamphlet in English contained 10,000 words that incited racial and religious hatred. “It described a detailed plan of operations for the assassination and extermination of all Christians—except those of German nationality.”[iii]

 

That pamphlet was translated into English on March 10, 1915. When Ambassador Morgenthau wrote his story of what happened during the Great War (World War 1) he felt that this fatwa had to be shared with the American people so they would understand what happened. Below is one portion he shared.

 

O people of the faith and O beloved Moslems, consider, even though but for a brief moment, the present condition of the Islamic world. For if you consider this but for a little you will weep long. You will behold a bewildering state of affairs which will cause the tear to fall and the fire of grief to blaze. You see the great country of India, which contains hundreds of millions of Moslems, fallen, because of religious divisions and weaknesses, into the grasp of the enemies of God, the infidel English. You see forty, millions of Moslems in Java shackled by the chains of captivity and of affliction under the rule of the Dutch, although these infidels are much fewer in number than the faithful and do not enjoy a much higher civilization. You see Egypt, Morocco, Tunis, Algeria, and the Sudan suffering the extremes of pain and groaning in the grasp of the enemies of God and his apostle. You see the vast country of Siberia and Turkestan and Khiva and Bokhara and the Caucasus and the Crimea and Kazan and Ezferhan and Kosahastan, whose Moslem peoples believe in the unity of God, ground under the feet of their oppressors, who are the enemies already of our religion. You behold Persia being prepared for partition and you see the city of the Caliphate, which for ages has unceasingly fought breast to breast with the enemies of our religion, now become the target for oppression and violence. Thus wherever you look you see that the enemies of the true religion, particularly the English, the Russian, and the French, have oppressed Islam and invaded its rights in every possible way. We cannot enumerate the insults we have received at the hands of these nations who desire totally to destroy Islam and drive all Mohammedans off the face of the earth. This tyranny has passed all endurable limits; the cup of our oppression is full to overflowing. . . . In brief, the Moslems work and the infidels eat; the Moslems are hungry and suffer and the infidels gorge themselves and live in luxury. The world of Islam sinks down and goes backward, and the Christian world goes forward and is more and  more exalted. The Moslems are enslaved and the infidels are the great rulers. This is all because the Moslems have abandoned the plan set forth in the Koran and ignored the Holy War which it commands. . . . But the time has now come for the Holy War, and by this the land of Islam shall be forever freed from the power of the infidels who oppress it. This holy war has now become a sacred duty. Know ye that the blood of infidels in the Islamic lands may be shed with impunity—except those to whom the Moslem power has promised security and who are allied with it. [Herein we find that Germans and Austrians are excepted from massacre.] The killing of infidels who rule over Islam has become a sacred duty, whether you do it secretly or openly, as the Koran has decreed: ‘Take them and kill them whenever you find them. Behold we have delivered them unto your hands and given you supreme power over them.’ He who kills even one unbeliever of those who rule over us, whether he does it secretly or openly, shall be rewarded by God. And let every Moslem, in whatever part of the world he may be, swear a solemn oath to kill at least three or four of the infidels who rule over him, for they are the enemies of God and of the faith. Let every Moslem know that his reward for doing so shall be doubled by the God who created heaven and earth. A Moslem who does this shall be saved from the terrors of the day of Judgment, of the resurrection of the dead. Who is the man who can refuse such a recompense for such a small deed? … Yet the time has come that we should rise up as the rising of one man, in one hand a sword, in the other a gun, in his pocket balls of fire and death-dealing missiles, and in his heart the light of the faith, and that we should lift up our voices, saying India for the Indian Moslems, Java for the Javanese Moslems, Algeria for the Algerian Moslems, Morocco for the Moroccan Moslems, Tunis for the Tunisian Moslems, Egypt for the Egyptian Moslems, Iran for the Iranian Moslems, Turan for the Turanian Moslems, Bokhara for the Bokharan Moslems, Caucasus for the Caucasian Moslems, and the Ottoman Empire for the Ottoman Turks and Arabs.[iv] [Emphasis added]

 

The 1915 fatwa piece you just read was hidden from the American people as a classified document until 1961. The State Department kept this under lock and key because of its incendiary nature. Interestingly under new Common Core American education curriculum standards, it is a Primary Source Document as Ambassador Morgenthau named it as the cause of the Armenian Genocide in his biography and in numerous communications with Washington.

 

The rest of the document revealed a call on every Muslim to one of three levels of Jihad:

 

1. Heart Jihad

2. Word of Mouth Jihad

3. Physical Jihad

 

The fact that an Islamic Holy War can have warriors engaged at one of three levels is significant as previous to this the concept of jihad on differing levels was unknown to those who are not Muslim.

 

Heart Jihad

 

This concept of jihad (holy war) as stated above was unknown to exist the fatwa was read. It simply stated:

 

This is the easiest and simplest. In this case it is to suppose that every unbeliever is an enemy to persecute and exterminate him from the face of the earth. There is not a Muslim in the world who is not inspired by this idea. However in the Koran it said: “That such a war is not enough for a Muslim whether young or old, and must also participate in the other parts of the Holy War.[v]

 

This second level of warfare can take the appearance of deceit to obtain influence and strength. This is the level at which Civilization Jihad takes place. The reasoning again is that they are not strong enough in number to take part in the third level.

 

In North America this war has been waged by forcing textbook publishers to provide textbooks that promote Islam instead of an objective review of the religion (See Chapter 5 for more detail.). Triple I-T, the International Institute of Islamic Thought, fights this battle in North America by giving colleges large sums of money to install Islamic professors. Another place this battle can be seen is through the concept of Islamization of Knowledge a teaching by Dr. Ismail Faruqi that all knowledge is only acceptable after Islam has purified it.

 

College professors of Islam are encouraged by this reasoning to provide some incitement to rally for Hamas by calling it a rally for the Gazan Palestinians and offering extra credit to those who show, and not informing those who do they are likely to have their pictures taken and an FBI file started on them. It is the level of jihad that led Jasser Auda of the International Institute of Islamic Thought, to redefine terrorism to mean: an act in which “innocent People (civilians or non-civilians) are harmed in a way that goes against the principles of justice and human dignity.”[vii] The word “innocent” has a specific meaning to Muslims that Westerners are unaware of. Imam Anjem Chaudry shared this one evening on BBC’s Hard Talk on July 7, 2005. He said, “As far as Muslims are concerned your innocent if you…you are a Muslim, then you are innocent in the eyes of God. You are non- Muslim then you are guilty of not-believing in God.”[viii]

 

This also explains the push to attain powerful places of power in the major U.S. and Canadian political parties. It is the reasoning by the bus ad campaign My Jihad, which promoted misinformation and a favorable outlook on Islam.

 

Physical Jihad

 

Lastly, the fatwa defines jihad, holy war as a hot physical activity. But allows for those who fund the battle to be included at this, the highest level of jihad

 

Physical Jihad. This means actual fighting in the fullest sense of the word… Every private individual can fight with deadly weapons, as for example. Here is the following illustration of the late Egyptian Verdani who shot the unbelieving Butros Gal Pacha the friend of the English with a revolver. The murder of one of the English police Commissioner Bavaro in India by one of our Indian brethren. The killing of one of the officials of Kansch on his coming from Mecca by the Prophet’s friend ”Abu Bazir El Pachbi,” peace be unto him! Abdallah ibn Aatickand four colleagues killed “Abu Raafa Ibn El Hakiki.” The leader of the Jews so famous for his enmity to Islamism. This was executed by our Prophet’s command, so did Avrala Ibn Ravacha and his friends when they killed Ocher Ibn Dawas one of the Jewish dignitaries. There are many instances of similar cases. Lord of the Universal What fails us now, and should not some of us go forth to fight this sacred war for exalting thy glorious name? What could not happen were some individuals among us, men of courage and stout hearted kill the principal Christian men of the Triple Alliance, the foes of Islam. By so doing they would wipe their names from the face of the earth. Thou O Allah art responsible if you will not inspire every Muslim, with the holy spirit, to in this jihad {holy war}.[ix]

 

The violent concept of jihad was taken after this reading of the 1915 fatwa that led to the genocide of the Armenian people. This document was seen to be so inciteful that the US government classified this document as dangerous and hid it from the people until 1961. Note that specific references were given to violent actions of assassination as part of jihad. Jihad is here shown clearly by a Caliph to mean a violent act against non-Muslims.

 

This caliph was very specific as to what was considered Physical War. He broke it into two categories.

 

A Lesser War and a Greater War

 

The lesser war, is when a certain section of Muslims rise to fight against their enemies in combination with their compatriots in the war sphere only, without summoning the aid of Muslims of other lands. For example the Sinoussians war with the Italians in Tripoli. Even in such a case every Muslim should offer material and moral help and not follow the course the Egyptian Government took in the Italian war when acting under the advice of the unbelieving English Government they declared themselves neutral. This sin shall never be forgiven them. However our Egyptian brethren have helped us to a certain degree financially and morally in the last two wars and in spite of their unbelieving rulers forwarded their collections on our behalf to the Capital of the Caliphate.[x](Emphasis added)

 

The concept of a lesser war is simply one that the Caliph does not declare and one in which no aid is requested of Muslims of other lands. Note the reference here to support. In today’s concept of Islamic Jihad, there are many Muslims who offer material and moral help. One only need look at the ISIS social networking to see people around the world standing with their black flag next to landmarks of countries all around the globe.

 

However, the concept of greater war, one declared by a Caliph which called Muslims to action can be viewed in terms of the result of this fatwa. The near entire genocide of the Armenian people. Ambassador Morgenthau wrote many details of this horror, below is just one event:

 

Let me relate a single episode which is contained in one of the reports of our consuls and which now forms part of the records of the American State Department. Early in July, 2,000 Armenian “amŽlŽs”—such is the Turkish word for soldiers who have been reduced to workmen—were sent from Harpoot to build roads. The Armenians in that town understood what this meant and pleaded with the Governor for mercy. But this official insisted that the men were not to be harmed, and he even called upon the German missionary, Mr. Ehemann, to quiet the panic, giving that gentleman his word of honour that the ex-soldiers would be protected. Mr. Ehemann believed the Governor and assuaged the popular fear. Yet practically every man of these 2,000 was massacred, and his body thrown into a cave. A few escaped, and it was from these that news of the massacre reached the world. A few days afterward another 2,000 soldiers were sent to Diarbekir. The only purpose of sending these men out in the open country was that they might be massacred. In order that they might have no strength to resist or to escape by flight, these poor creatures were systematically starved. Government agents went ahead on the road, notifying the Kurds that the caravan was approaching and ordering them to do their congenial duty. Not only did the Kurdish tribesmen pour down from the mountains upon this starved and weakened regiment, but the Kurdish women came with butcher’s knives in order that they might gain that merit in Allah’s eyes that comes from killing a Christian. These massacres were not isolated happenings; I could detail many more episodes just as horrible as the one related above; throughout the Turkish Empire a systematic attempt was made to kill all able-bodied men, not only for the purpose of removing all males who might propagate a new generation of Armenians, but for the purpose of rendering the weaker part of the population an easy prey.[xi]

The Gradual Collapse of Sweden


DEAR GOD IN HEAVEN! I believe if the Islamic cultural destruction currently occurring in Sweden started to gain traction in the USA, it would be open rebellion by Americans that believe in the U.S. Constitution, Christian heritage and the principles established by our Founding Fathers that led thirteen diverse British colonies to unite under one flag and begin the process of E Pluribus UnumOut of many, One.

 

Sweden is a train wreck getting to derail into oblivion.

The Gradual Collapse of Sweden

Birgitta Ohlsson is a politician from the Swedish Liberal party. On the National Day of Sweden in 2001, she published an essay entitled “Abolish Sweden!” She wanted to abolish all nation states and institute a democratic global parliament and a global police force.[1] Ohlsson has been a member of Parliament for many years, and served as Minister for European Union Affairs in the government of PM Reinfeldt between 2010 and 2014.

 

A global democracy doesn’t look very likely, but Ohlsson and other Swedish politicians have nevertheless made great progress in abolishing Sweden.

 

In November 2015, even Sweden had to reinstate a form of border control. At that point, more than one thousand asylum seekers flooded into the country every single day.[2] The then Deputy Prime Minister Åsa Romson from the Swedish Green Party literally cried on TV over this fact.[3] She did not cry because successive Swedish governments have done massive and possibly irreversible damage to the country through their immigration policies. No. Romson cried because she couldn’t continue immigration as fast as she wanted to.

 

Immigration Sweden

 

Their official party program in 2017 states the following, in multiple languages:

 

“The Swedish Green Party has a vision of a world without borders, where all people can move, but no one is forced to flee. We don’t believe in countries’ right to choose their citizens; we believe in people’s right to choose where they want to live. We should greet people with opportunities, not with walls. Everyone should be able to live, work and realise their dreams where they want to. Freedom of movement should be a human right.”[4]

 

Mass immigration to Sweden still continues, just at a slower pace than in the crazy year of 2015. Back then, Sweden couldn’t even find beds for the many Afghans, Iraqis, Somalis and other immigrants.

 

The German public broadcaster Deutsche Welle in late June 2017 conducted an interview with the Swedish Justice and Migration Minister Morgan Johansson, a Social Democrat. Johansson then stated that “We have between 400 and 500 asylum seekers each week coming to Sweden. So we haven’t shut our borders but we now have a level which we can handle. And we didn’t have that in 2015.” He stated that “Now we have control over that situation.” The Minister also claimed that there is “no direct link” between migration and terrorism.[5]

 

This last claim is a flat-out lie. It is a proven fact that Muslim asylum seekers and immigrants have been involved in many deadly Jihadist attacks in Europe. On April 7, 2017, the rejected Muslim migrant Rakhmat Akilov murdered five people and wounded several others when he mowed them down with a stolen truck in a terrorist attack in central Stockholm.[6] A couple of months later, the Swedish Justice Minister claims that there is no connection between migration and terrorism.

 

Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, Justice Minister Johansson and other representatives of the Swedish government may pretend that things are under control. There are, however, many disturbing signs that this is not true.

 

In June 2017, eight new districts were added to a police list of “especially vulnerable areas,” where crime rates are very high. Some have labeled them no-go-zones, a label the authorities reject. In 2015, Sweden’s national police released a report of 53 so-called vulnerable areas, including 15 considered especially vulnerable. Eight more urban areas have now been added to that list, bringing the latter number up to 23.[7] This is a big increase in just two years of places where Swedish authorities no longer have effective control over their country’s territory.

 

A survey in June 2017 suggested that Swedish police officers are facing increased threats and violence and that criminal gangs have created a “parallel society.” Anna Nelberg Dennis, the vice chair of the Swedish Police Union, said that it has become more and more common for gangs of young people to attack police officers in certain areas. “I think it’s part of a change in society, where in socially vulnerable areas, gangs have created parallel societies where they take the law into their own hands,” she said. “[The gangs] believe that police shouldn’t be there because they rule the area. This is something that the police can’t solve themselves.”[8]

 

The Stockholm region has been hit by a wave of bloody, gang-related murders. A report has found that 94.5 per cent of people identified as being involved in the Swedish capital’s violent, organized crime scene have an immigration background.[9]

 

One woman visited the emergency ward at the hospital in Lund, southern Sweden, in 2017. She described it as “Dante’s Inferno,” massively overcrowded and slow.[10] Swedish hospital staff and ambulance personnel face increasing threats and violence. Elderly Swedes who have paid taxes their whole lives often receive shockingly poor treatment. The Swedish welfare state started to disintegrate after the authorities decided that they should be the welfare office of the entire planet.

 

Sweden has a record number of unsolved murder cases.[11] Many public gang shootings go unsolved because the ethnic gangs do not talk to the police. Less serious crime can be nearly risk-free for criminals in many municipalities. The police are understaffed and underfunded.

 

No fewer than 70 police stations in Sweden will be closed down during parts of or for the entire summer of 2017 due to a shortage of money and staff.[12] This is happening at a time when the number of rival mafias and criminal gangs operating in the country has never been higher.

 

Bråvalla festival, one of the major music festivals in Sweden, announced that they would cancel their entire festival in 2018 due to reported incidents of rape and several sexual assaults.[13] Sweden has infamously high rape rates. Swedish mass media have for many years claimed that this spike in rapes and other violent crime has nothing to do with immigration, despite strong evidence to the contrary. Numbers clearly show that immigrants from the Muslim world and Africa are vastly overrepresented in such crimes.[14]

 

Gang rapes were very rare in Scandinavia forty years ago. They are now disturbingly common, and destroy the lives of thousands of women. Even gang rapes of boys have now become fairly common in Sweden.

 

Some migrants from Afghanistan explain that the rape of young boys by one or several older men is a common cultural practice in their country called bacha bazi.[15] European countries such as Sweden have seen a big influx of young Muslim men from Afghanistan. Many of them claim to be children, even if they are in their 20s or older. They bring with them the mentality and practices of their Islamic homeland.

 

In 2017, a man from Afghanistan was convicted of anally raping a young boy. For child rape, he got one month in a soft Scandinavian prison. He could not be deported since he had become a Swedish citizen.[16]

 

The first Islamic terror attack in Scandinavia took place in Copenhagen, Denmark, on July 22, 1985. The attackers targeted American and Jewish targets. One person was killed and 26 injured. The terrorists were Palestinians based in Sweden. The problem has got a lot worse since then.

 

Michael Skråmos, a Swedish convert to Islam and former expert on “Islamophobia,” has joined the Islamic State and calls for Muslims to attack targets in Sweden.[17] A number of Islamic terrorists have even received welfare payments from Europe while staying in the Middle East.

 

At least 150 Jihadists have returned to Sweden after supporting the Islamic State (ISIS), probably the most brutal terrorist group on the planet. Many of them have been given protected identities by Swedish authorities to help them quietly re-integrate into Swedish society. Some of them complain that it is difficult to get a job after having fought for the mass-murdering slave traders of the Islamic State. A re-entry program — which may include free housing, a driver’s license, and tax benefits — was instituted by Anna Sjöstrand, a coordinator against violent extremism in the city of Lund. “There may be criticism, but [I think] that you should get the same help as others who seek help from us. We can’t say that because you made a wrong choice, you have no rights to come back and live in our society,” Sjöstrand told Swedish radio.[18]

 

Some might question whether freely joining genocidal terrorists who routinely behead people, burn them alive or stone them to death falls under the category of simply “making a wrong choice” in life.

 

It is highly likely that some terrorists or war criminals have received asylum in Sweden. The Swedish state seems very concerned with protecting them. It has been less concerned with protecting Swedes against foreign terrorists or war criminals.

 

In June 2017, the Swedish Security Service (Säpo) warned about an explosive growth in the number of radical Muslims in the country. “We have never seen anything like it before,” Säpo chief Anders Thornberg stated.[19] Thornberg said there are around 3,000 violent extremists in Sweden as of mid-2017. Some 2,000 of those are believed to have Islamic motives, and the remaining originate from far-right and far-left movements.[20] A 2010 report estimated the number of violent Islamic radicals at 200. The number of militant Muslims in Sweden has thus increased at least ten times in just seven years. Despite this, the country continues to import thousands of Muslims annually. Many of them are young and aggressive men from conflict areas.

 

Although Thornberg did not admit this openly, it is doubtful whether the security services can track thousands of people continuously. If the authorities cannot contain the number of potential Jihadists today, what will the situation be like 5, 10 or 20 years from now? When will the number of radical Muslims exceed the number of police officers in Swedish streets? What happens then?

 

The Nordic Passport Union allows citizens of Iceland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland to travel and reside in another Nordic country without a passport or a residence permit. This agreement dates back to the 1950s. Today, these countries are also members of the Schengen Area, which includes much of the EU.

 

The Danish Security and Intelligence Service (PET) told the public broadcaster DR in June 2017 that Denmark may face a terror threat from the many radical Muslims in Sweden.[21] While Denmark, Norway and Finland also have a significant number of potential Jihadists, this threat is at least one order of magnitude worse in Sweden.

 

The Danish People’s Party (DF) and others in Denmark are starting to warn that increased border controls against Sweden may be necessary to keep out terror and crime.[22] Sweden’s other immediate neighbors, Norway and Finland, still haven’t properly entered this debate, but they should.

 

I have warned for many years that the problems in Sweden have grown so big that they are no longer merely a threat to the internal stability of Sweden. They have now also become a threat to neighboring countries.

Danon Chastises UN for Colluding with Islamic Terrorists


John R. Houk

© July 7, 2017

 

Danny Danon

 

I am on the email list of Jewish Voice Ministries. I received an interesting email highlighting info on Israel’s United Nations envoy Danny Danon. Danon was recently elected as Vice President of the UN General Assembly placing him in the unique and rare position to be a significant voice for Israel’s perspective on geopolitics.

 

Email alert goes on to inform readers that Danon is publicly admonishing the United Nations for being in collusion with Islamic terrorists whose sole goal is to destroy the Jewish Homeland of Israel for Arabs that call themselves Palestinians to become sovereign over a land that most of their ascendants were immigrants rather than an inherent population.

 

This makes the pseudo-Palestinians a fake people with very little actual history to the Land God gave to the Jews as a Promised heritage thousands of years ago.

 

Danon’s anger at the UN is placed on the fact the internal body supports the false claims of Islamic terrorists over Israel’s sovereignty and heritage. The legitimized Palestinian Authority (in reality still terrorists), pays money to incarcerated Muslim terrorists and their families. And more heinously the PA has announced the worst Islamic terrorists that call themselves Palestinians – Hamas (SEE ALSO HERE) and PFLP – are not terrorists!

 

The info is great from Jewish Voice, but in honesty the email alert also serves as a fund raiser for their Ministry. I have no problem with that. Ministries have to pay the bills just like the rest of us. (I wouldn’t mind a little support for my blog efforts as well. 😊) So, donate or not, but remain supportive of a defensible sovereign nation of Israel, which a Palestinian State would make difficult to exist.

They [UN] have no shame

Israel’s United Nations envoy Danny Danon slammed the Palestinian Authority (PA) late last week, saying, “They have no shame.”

Quoted in The Times of Israel, Danon was reacting to what he termed “lies and incitement from those who are paying terrorists to kill innocent Israelis.” He added that their claims “will not change the fact that the Palestinian leadership refuses to end their support for terror.”

Danon’s comment came in response to a senior PA official’s claim that Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) are not terrorist groups.

The Palestinian official, Saeb Erekat, reportedly said that Hamas and the PFLP “are not terrorist organizations” and that the key to defeating the Islamic State is to end the “occupation,” the term used by Palestinians in reference to Israel’s presence in land they claim as their own.”

The PA leader’s remarks came at an event called the United Nations Forum to Mark Fifty Years of Occupation which was organized by a pro-Palestinian UN group.

Hamas and the PFLP have both carried out numerous attacks on Israeli security forces and civilians. Less than two weeks ago, the two terror groups claimed responsibility for a knife attack that killed a 23-year-old Israeli border policewoman in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Israel also cited the PA’s payments to terrorists sitting in Israeli jails, to their families, and to the families of Palestinians killed while carrying out terror attacks against Israel as further evidence the Palestinians give aid and comfort to terrorists.

 

Charges of United Nations Collusion

 

Danon objected earlier to the event, held at UN headquarters in New York, informing UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres that some of the billed participants had ties to Hamas and the PFLP. Guterres said the event did not have the blessing of his office.

According to Breaking Israel News, on Wednesday of last week Danon went as far as to say the UN “colludes” with terrorist organizations.

“It is beyond comprehension that UN funds are supporting organizations which aid terrorists and incite [violence] against Israel,” Danon said. “We call on the Secretary-General to intervene immediately and prevent these individuals from appearing at the UN.”

Danon may soon be in a position to have more influence over UN activities. He was elected in May to serve as vice president of the upcoming session of the UN General Assembly. For one year, he’ll chair the body’s meetings, have a say in setting its agenda, and oversee rules and decorum during its sessions. His election is seen by many observers as a major victory for Israel, which has been very vocal in its criticism of what it calls the UN’s long-standing bias against the Jewish state.

 

Stand in solidarity with Israel through your support of Jewish Voice

 

These are interesting developments, which we’ll be watching closely—especially in light of Israel’s new leadership in the UN General Assembly.

Who Jewish Voice Is

 

“One generation will praise Your works to another and declare Your mighty acts” (Psalm 145:4 TLV).

 

Our Mission and Vision

 

We exist to transform lives and see all Israel saved.

 

It is the mission of Jewish Voice Ministries to:

 

  • Proclaim the Gospel

 

  • Engage the Church concerning Israel and the Jewish people

 

  • Grow the Messianic Jewish community

 

Jewish Voice carries out this mission through a many-faceted ministry that includes humanitarian medical outreaches, large-scale international festivals, congregation planting and leadership training, television, print media, digital channels, and speaking engagements.

 

The Early Days

 

Louis Kaplan, founder of Jewish Voice Broadcasts radio program.

 

Louis Kaplan’s commitment to use his voice to declare the mighty acts of God to his generation and to the next is the foundation for the work of Jewish Voice Ministries International (JVMI). Kaplan, a Jewish follower of Yeshua, launched Jewish Voice Broadcasts in 1967, a weekly 15-minute radio program It was an outgrowth of his decades of work as a traveling evangelist,. The radio program and the program first aired on Christian radio in Phoenix, Arizona.

 

1967 was a watershed year in Jewish history. Israel reclaimed the city of Jerusalem in the Six-Day War on June 7th, 1967. This miraculous act was a fulfillment of a prophecy in Luke 21:24 that directly connects the reestablishment of Jerusalem with the times of the Gentiles being fulfilled.

 

Louis Kaplan believed he’d followed his Savior to the crossroads of prophetic history. He’d committed his life to Yeshua at age 19 at the height of the Great Depression after attending a revival meeting at a nearby church. He said, READ THE REST

This “If it quacks like a duck, then it is a duck” comparison to Barack Hussein Obama has actually been around for a while. Since it represents the essence of what a chain email looks like, I will make an effort to verify the claims. If I can’t find the claim connected to the phrase I will say so and try to find a similarity. If my Google and Bing search skills turn up empty I will admit it. (In all honesty, the admission may mean I inputted the incorrect search parameters. I you find something I didn’t, feel to rectify the case in a comment.)

 

Here is a Youtube video that covers many of the assertions of Obama quacking like a Left Wing betrayer of American values:

Obama admits that he is a Muslim. Obama bowing before a Muslim king. Obama talking about his Muslim family. Obama quoting from the Koran. Obama defending Islam. Obama visiting a Mosque. And many more clips of Obama and his Muslim connections. Legal Disclaimer: The writers, producers, and editors of this video are not claiming or implying that Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim, or that Obama said he was a Muslim, rather they are only examining the evidence surrounding the rumor that Barack Hussein Obama might be a secret Muslim.

The REAL Duck

Whether we are willing to honestly admit it or not, folks, herein lies the reason and major source of many of our nation’s current problems! Elections do have their consequences, you know!

Keep this old adage in mind: If you walk like a duck and quack like a duck; have feathers like a duck; eat like a duck and lay eggs like a duck, there is a very high probability that you are a duck.

Mike Gallagher, the 8th most recognized talk radio personality in the country, is heard by over 2.25 million listeners weekly. He compiled and wrote the following essay: “Obama: It was You”. [According to TruthOrFiction.com, Gallagher didn’t write this essay. Rather he posted it on his Facebook page.]

President Obama,

This is why you didn’t go to France to show solidarity against the Muslim terrorists:

* It was you who . . .
spoke these words at an Islamic dinner – “I am one of you.”

 

[Blog Editor: I cannot find any references of Obama attending an Islamic dinner whence he told the Muslim diners “I am one of you”. Nonetheless, there are plenty of public appearances that Obama insinuated an Islamic affinity.]

* It was you who . . .
on ABC News referenced -“My Muslim faith.” [HERE & HERE]

* It was you who . . .
gave $100 million in U.S. taxpayer funds to re-build foreign mosques. [TopRightNews quotes CBS the taxpayer bill was closer to $770 BILLION to foreign Mosque refurbishing]

* It was you who . . .
wrote that in the event of a conflict – “I will stand with the Muslims.” [The context that the Left can’t or won’t admit]

* It was you who . . .
assured the Egyptian Foreign Minister that – “I am a Muslim.”

* It was you who . . .
bowed in submission before the Saudi King. [Quacks like duck: HERE and HERE]

* It was you who . . .
sat for 20 years in a [Black] Liberation Theology Church condemning Christianity and professing Marxism.

* It was you who . . .
exempted Muslims from penalties under Obamacare
that the rest of us have to pay. [After Obamacare passed coupled with Obama’s documented sympathy for Islam, read the potential Obamacare exemptions and then looking at Sharia Law, thought an exemption could arise for Muslims. However, the perception proved wrong.]

* It was you who . . .
purposefully omitted – “endowed by our Creator” –
from your recitation of The Declaration of Independence.

* It was you who . . .
mocked the Bible and Jesus Christ’s Sermon on the Mount while repeatedly referring to the ‘HOLY’ Qur’an.

* It was you who . . .
traveled the Islamic world denigrating the United States of America.

* It was you who . . .
instantly threw the support of your administration behind the building of the Ground Zero Victory mosque overlooking the hallowed crater of the World Trade Center.

* It was you who . . .
refused to attend the National Prayer Breakfast, but hastened to host an Islamic prayer breakfast at the White House.

* It was you who . . .
ordered Georgetown Univ. and Notre Dame to shroud all vestiges of Jesus Christ BEFORE you would agree to go there to speak, but in contrast, you have NEVER requested the mosques you have visited to adjust their decor.

* It was you who . . .
appointed anti-Christian fanatics to your Czar Corps [Kevin Jennings and John Holdren and Mohamed Magid]

* It was you who . . .
appointed rabid Islamists to Homeland Security.

* It was you who . . .
said that NASA’s “foremost mission” was an outreach to Muslim communities.

* It was you who . . .
as an Illinois Senator was the ONLY individual who would speak in favor of infanticide.

* It was you who . . .
was the first President not to give a Christmas Greeting from the White House [From what I looked at, verbally the word “Christmas” was used in greetings from the White House. However the Obamas, like many Leftists, tried to secularize Christ’s birth “Holiday” greeting cards], and went so far as to hang photos of Chairman Mao on the White House tree.

 

Mao Zedong Ornament (Noted Communist atheist dictator)

* It was you who . . .
curtailed the military tribunals of all Islamic terrorists.

* It was you who . . .
refused to condemn the Ft. Hood killer as an Islamic terrorist.

* It is you who . . .
has refused to speak-out concerning the horrific executions of women throughout the Muslim culture(a), but yet, have submitted Arizona to the UN for investigation of hypothetical human-rights abuses.(b)

 

  1. a) Perspective: HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE
  2. b) State Department Stands By Decision to Include Arizona in U.N. Human Rights Report

* It was you who . . .
when queried in India, refused to acknowledge [It’s the NYT, so you might need to scroll down a bit for details] the true extent of radical global Jihadists, and instead profusely praised Islam in a country that is 82% Hindu and the victim of numerous Islamic terrorist assaults.

* It was you who . . .
funneled $900 million in U.S. taxpayer dollars to Hamas.

* It was you who . . .
ordered the USPS to honor the MUSLIM holiday with a new commemorative stamp.

* It was you who . . .
directed our UK Embassy to conduct outreach to help “empower” the British Muslim community.

* It was you who . . .
funded mandatory Arabic language and culture studies in grammar schools across our country. [“Mandate” appears to be off. A better scenario is highly encourage.]

* It is you who . .
follows the Muslim custom of not wearing any form of jewelry during Ramadan. [Obama has not worn his wedding ring on numerous sightings other than just Ramadan. It might be a coincidence in 2009 travelling in Muslim nations not wearing his wedding ring. The Left claims the ring was in the shop being repaired.]

* It is you who . . .
departs for Hawaii over the Christmas season so as to avoid past criticism for NOT participating in seasonal White House religious events. [The only criticism I have about Obama vacationing in Hawaii during Christmas is the taxpayer cost.]

* It was you who . . .
was uncharacteristically quick to join the chorus of the Muslim Brotherhood to depose Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak, formerly America’s strongest ally in North Africa; but remain muted in your non-response to the Brotherhood-led slaughter of Egyptian Christians.

* It was you who . . .
appointed your chief adviser, Valerie Jarrett, an Iranian, who is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood, an off-shoot of the Muslim Brotherhood. [Jarrett spoke at ISNA 2009  –  a Muslim Brotherhood American front group. John Gaultier’s blog is full of Muslim Sisterhood details and connecting Jarrett but is totally vague on sources.]

* It was you who . . .
said this country is not a Christian nation.

* It was you who . . .
said the Muslim call to worship is “the most beautiful sound on earth.” [Leftist NYT has the quote. Click “Find” on a word search, use the word “sound” and you’ll find it easily.]

QUACK! QUACK! QUACK! QUACK!

Islamic ‘Extremists’ Are the True Muslims


I am always paying catch up in reading my email alerts from the many websites I have signed up to receive an email in my inbox. I have just read one case I should have taken notice much earlier.

 

Robert Fay posted a teaser to the LinkedIn group Return of the Republic to a Pamela Geller article in which Egyptian Greek Melkite Jesuit Father Henri Boulad expressed courteous criticism to Pope Francis’ Multicultural inclusiveness of Islam.

 

Here is the Pamela Geller piece on Father Boulad.

Jesuit Scholar: Islamic ‘Extremists’ Are the True Muslims

 

Posted By Pamela Geller

Geller Report

 

Egyptian Greek Melkite Jesuit Father Henri Boulad

 

This is the cold hard reality that Western elites refuse to accept which is why we are losing this war. The death toll will continue to mount if the West’s continues to refuse reality.

 

The Muslim world has engaged in this holy war for the past 1,400 years. We will suffer untold horrors unless we change our approach.

 

JESUIT SCHOLAR: ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS ARE THE TRUE MUSLIMS

 

by Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D., Breitbart News, 16 Jun 2017 (thanks to Inexion):

 

ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS WHO CARRY OUT ACTS OF TERROR ARE SIMPLY APPLYING WHAT THEIR FAITH REQUIRES OF THEM, ACCORDING TO JESUIT FATHER HENRI BOULAD, AN ISLAMIC SCHOLAR OF THE EGYPTIAN GREEK MELKITE RITE.

 

In an interview with the National Catholic Register, Father Boulad said that “Islam is an open-ended declaration of war against non-Muslims” and those who carry out violent jihad are true Muslims who are applying exactly what their creed demands.

 

Those who fail to recognize the real threat posed by Islam are naïve and ignorant of history, he said, and unfortunately many in the Church fall into this category.

 

Citing a letter he wrote last August to Pope Francis, Father Boulad said that “on the pretext of openness, tolerance and Christian charity — the Catholic Church has fallen into the trap of the liberal left ideology which is destroying the West.”

 

“Anything that does not espouse this ideology is immediately stigmatized in the name of ‘political correctness,’” he said.

 

The priest went so far as to chastise Pope Francis himself—a fellow Jesuit—suggesting that he has fallen into this trap as well.

 

“Many think that a certain number of your positions are aligned with this ideology and that, from complacency, you go from concessions to concessions and compromises in compromises at the expense of the truth,” the priest wrote to Francis.

 

Christians in the West and in the East, he wrote the Pope, “are expecting something from you other than vague and harmless declarations that may obscure reality.”

 

“It is high time to emerge from a shameful and embarrassed silence in the face of this Islamism that attacks the West and the rest of the world. A systematically conciliatory attitude is interpreted by the majority of Muslims as a sign of fear and weakness,” he said.

 

“If Jesus said to us: Blessed are the peacemakers, he did not say to us: Blessed are the pacifists. Peace is peace at any cost, at any price. Such an attitude is a pure and simple betrayal of truth,” he said.

 

The priest also stated his belief that the West is in an ethical and moral debacle, and its defense of Islam is a denial of truth.

 

“By defending at all costs Islam and seeking to exonerate it from the horrors committed every day in its name, one ends up betraying the truth,” he wrote.

 

To back up his argument, Father Boulad enumerated a number of texts from the Koran that call on Muslims to employ violence in their conquest of the world for Allah.

 

The many passages he cited included: “Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them” (Koran 2:191), “Make war on the infidels living in your neighbourhood” (Koran 9:123), “When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them” (Koran 9:5), “Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam” (Koran 5:33), “Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies” (Koran 22:19), and “Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’anKoran 8:12. [Bold text by JRH – Blog Editor]

 

Father Boulad is not the first Jesuit scholar to criticize the West for its naivete in dealing with Islam. Last year, Georgetown scholar Father James V. Schall contended that decades of students have been given a “sanitized education” that systematically excludes an honest portrayal of the history and theology of Islam, which limits their ability to assess what is going on in the world.

 

In his essay titled “Realism and Islam,” Father Schall argued that Islam “is actually and potentially violent throughout its entire history” and the basic reason for this method is religious in nature: “obedience to the Law of Allah.”

 

Therefore, he wrote, the Western tendency to simply call Muslim violence “terrorism” is insulting to believing Muslims who “see themselves carrying out the will of Allah, even sometimes to their own death in doing so.” Rather than terrorism, he insists, Muslims see their violence as “a religious endeavor to conquer the world,” which they understand to be “an act of piety.”

 

Because of this gaping educational void, “most citizens are simply not equipped to face the forces now reappearing in the world,” he wrote.

 

“And while it may be politically incorrect to state these things, they need to be stated and are in fact the truth—things that both Muslims and non-Muslims need to hear and consider,” he said.
