This column’s been around since 1999. I think I’ve said some things of value over the past few local editions of your favored publication. I’ve addressed family issues and personal relationships and our relationship with our elected officials (they work for us; not the other way around). I’ve tried to enlighten, entertain and now I must work to embolden you.
Why embolden? Because we’ve become fat, weak and complacent in our political participation on a local scale, let alone regional, national or international levels. We’re in danger of being overrun by a political system demanding we capitulate (give in) to their demands we accept their law, their worldview and their god no matter what we believe, practice or worship as a matter of our personal faith.
I speak of Islam.
Some people say Islam isn’t the problem so much as the fanatical, fundamentalist participants hijacking god’s word as given to the world by his prophet Mohammed.
The problem is Islam because the sole element delivering the word to the people, the Qur’an (or Koran) is never-ending in its statement that infidels (non-believers) must be converted and taxed after their conversion or killed outright for their lack of faith in the deity and prophet they command belief in. In this religion, your very thought processes are directed by the Qur’an, your relationships are directed by the Qur’an. Your life as you know it now will not exist because you must adhere mindlessly to the instruction of the Qur’an.
The purpose here is to take the information we know and understand as truth and state it plainly. This’ll allow you to make a knowledgeable decision as to which way you’ll go with your faith, your politics as it’s developed from a religion and your course in life if you don’t see it their way. If you choose to convert, that’s your right. But, you’ll never be able to say you weren’t warned.
If you threaten me and mine because we don’t accept the Koran, Mohammed or his troupe of mindless crypto-Nazis I’ll resist to the same demented, violent, devastatingly personal extent as you advertise in your book.
The text of your own holy Koran will be used against you.
I have a new friend. John West is interesting and informed when it comes to the Islam’s covert agenda. John told me what he knows are facts and what he sees as truth.
First – the truth.
Ephesians 6:11-20 says we should wear the “whole armor of God” then details each piece of armor. This armor is defensive in nature and lists the helmet, breastplate and other raiment to wear: “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
In Ephesians 6:17 the “Sword of the Spirit” is “the Word of God”; the only offensive weapon given us by OUR God. If the Word of God is our Sword, then the Quran (the Words of Allah) and The Hadith (Muhammad’s Words) are the Sword of Islam.
John extrapolated a thought: since David fought Goliath there’s a further corollary. Goliath was a Philistine from the geographical region known as the Gaza strip: the homeland of Islamic terror group Hamas.
David killed Goliath by using a humble weapon; a stone hurled by a sling. The killing blow was delivered by the hand of God and not the personal weaponry of an idolatrous killer. But, in 1st Samuel 17: 51). “David … took hold of the Philistine’s sword and … killed him; he cut off his head with his (Goliath’s) sword”.
Now – the fact.
Muslims’ threats are incapacitated by the truth when confronted with quotes from the Qur’an and The Hadith. The Koran’s edge dulls against the truth.
People say: “Islam is a religion of peace”.
Read the Qur’an 9:5: “But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem of war”.
Does that sound peaceful to you?
Thanks for listening
