Why Allah Is Not My “Father”… Or My God

I was recently asked on Quora, the question/answer site with over one billion monthly users, why Christians do not simply accept Allah, the God of Islam, as being our “Father”.  This, in its entirety, was my answer to that question..


If you watch any amount of mainstream news, or the endless propaganda coming from North American and European Muslims today, you’ve likely been convinced that Muslims believe Jesus was a good teacher or a great Prophet – and that, whie they might have issues with the Church and Christians, it’s all rainbows and unicorns when they think about Jesus.

 You’ve likely even heard that “Allah” is just another word for “God”.  I would imagine you’ve also heard that when you boil it all down, we all really serve the same God, underneath it all.

If you’ve heard all this and believed it – you’re in for a rude awakening.

There is a popular belief, spread often by non-Muslim Western nations’ readers, and of course by Muslims themselves, that not only is Islam a “religion of peace” (which is so ironic and outrageous, in light of the news we read every day, it’s almost humorous), but that Allah and the God of the Bible, and Jehovah of the Jewish Talmud, are all one and the same Divine being.

That is absolute rubbish, and as you are going to see, from quotes pulled from the Quran itself, not only does Islam believe that Christ is NOT the Son of God,  the Quran actually states that anyone believing that Jesus is the Son of God – should be destroyed by God for their perverted way of thinking.

Open your hearts and minds. We are in a war for our very souls.  And Islam is the self-declared enemy of the Cross.  We cannot allow anyone to tell us differently  – for we are being led to the slaughter if we do.

An Islamic meme which makes no bones about stating that Christ couldn’t be God, as Allah has never been “incarnated in other forms.” BLASPHEMY.

Before we get to Jesus, we need to focus on Allah in the Quran.  He is the central figure of the Islamic religion and the one who apparently created the world, and gave us all life.  But if you are being told that He and Jehovah God of the Bible are one and the same, you are going to have to take a second look at the very words from the pages of the Quran themselves.  Whoever Allah is, he is not what Christians would recognize as the God of the Bible.

Christianity teaches that Jesus is the Son of God, but the Quran says:

Surah Al-Baqarah (The Cow)  2:

  • And they say, “None will enter Paradise except one who is a Jew or a Christian.” That is [merely] their wishful thinking, Say, “Produce your proof, if you should be truthful.” (2:111)

So, the Quran teaches that it is wishful thinking for Christians to think they will enter Heaven through the work of Christ.  That is absolute BLASPHEMY

  • Yes [on the contrary], whoever submits his face in Islam to Allah while being a doer of good will have his reward with his Lord. And no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve (2:112)

Continuing from the verse above, we see that only those who believe in Allah will be rewarded.  In other words, Christians and Jews don’t get any rewards in Heaven, as they don’t believe in Allah.

  • The Jews say “The Christians have nothing [true] to stand on,” and the Christians say, “The Jews have nothing to stand on,” although they [both] recite the Scripture. Thus the polytheists speak the same as their words. But Allah will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that over which they used to differ.  (2:113)

  • And who are more unjust than those who prevent the name of Allah from being mentioned in His mosques and strive toward their destruction. It is not for them to enter them except in fear. For them in this world is disgrace, and they will have in the Hereafter a great punishment. (2:114)  They say, ” Allah has taken a son.” Exalted is He! Rather, to Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth. All are devoutly obedient to Him (2:116)  Indeed, We have sent you, [O Muhammad], with the truth as a bringer of good tidings and a warner, and you will not be asked about the companions of Hellfire. (2:119)  And never will the Jews or the Christians approve of you until you follow their religion. Say, “Indeed, the guidance of Allah is the [only] guidance.” If you were to follow their desires after what has come to you of knowledge, you would have against Allah no protector or helper.  (2:120)  Those to whom We have given the Book recite it with its true recital. They [are the ones who] believe in it. And whoever disbelieves in it – it is they who are the losers.  (2:121)  They say, “Be Jews or Christians [so] you will be guided.” Say, “Rather, [we follow] the religion of Abraham, inclining toward truth, and he was not of the polytheists.”  (2:135)  

The Quran mentions in chapter 3, verses 52-53, that the disciples submitted to the faith of Islam:

Ask the Children of Israel how many a sign of evidence We have given them. And whoever exchanges the favor of Allah [for disbelief] after it has come to him – then indeed, Allah is severe in penalty.  (2:211)

But when Jesus felt [persistence in] disbelief from them, he said, “Who are my supporters for [the cause of] Allah ?” The disciples said,” We are supporters for Allah. We have believed in Allah and testify that we are Muslims [submitting to Him. (Quran Surah Al-Imran 52-53)

The longest narrative involving Jesus’ disciples is when they request a laden table to be sent from Heaven, for further proof that Jesus is preaching the true message:

Behold! the disciples, said: “O Jesus the son of Mary! can thy Lord send down to us a table set (with viands) from heaven?” Said Jesus: “Fear Allah, if ye have faith.”

They said: “We only wish to eat thereof and satisfy our hearts, and to know that thou hast indeed told us the truth; and that we ourselves may be witnesses to the miracle.”
Said Jesus, the son of Mary: “O Allah our Lord! Send us from heaven a table set (with viands), that there may be for us‚ÄĒfor the first and the last of us‚ÄĒa solemn festival and a sign from thee; and provide for our sustenance, for thou art the best Sustainer (of our needs).”

Allah said: “I will send it down unto you: But if any of you after that resisteth faith, I will punish him with a penalty such as I have not inflicted on any one among all the peoples.” (Quran Surah Al-Ma’ida 112-115)

In Islam, Jesus is believed to have been the precursor to Muhammad, attributing the name Ahmad to someone who would follow Jesus. Islam traditionally teaches the rejection of divinity, that Jesus was not God incarnate, nor the Son of God and, according to some interpretations of the Quran, the death and crucifixion is widely denied and not believed to have occurred.

Despite the earliest Muslim traditions and exegesis quoting somewhat conflicting reports regarding death and length of death, the mainstream Muslim belief is that Jesus did not suffer death but was instead raised alive to heaven.

That is a huge problem.  If Jesus did not die, then His blood was not shed for our sins.  Our sins are therefore not cleansed – we would continue to require the sacrifice of animals, and the shedding of their blood in order to merely cover, but not cleanse, us of sin.  The Bible says that Jesus “died (comma) and was buried (period), then ladies and gentlemen, we have a dead religion serving a dead God.  And we remain dead in our sins.

Islam would like to perpetuate this myth, because underneath it all, Islam is a false religion, which could only possibly have one source or founder – one who seeks to be as a God, one who seeks to replace God.  And Islam cannot accept Jesus in the form that He stated he was, because to do so would be to recognize Islam is a false religion.

Why do I say this?  Because Jesus Christ himself said:

“I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life – NO ONE comes to the Father but by me”.  (Johm 14:6)

So for a Muslim to say that Jesus was a good teacher, a good man or a good Prophet even would be nonsense, and a lie.  Jesus couldn’t possibly be ANY of those things if He was also a LUNATIC OR A LIAR.

Jesus didn’t say He was a good guy.  He didn’t claim to be a good teacher – He said He IS truth.  He doesn’t just possess truth, or share truth, or understand truth, nor is he one that lives in truth or walks in his Truth or whatever nonsense we hear today.  Jesus Christ said that He IS Truth.  Period.  If you want to know what’s real, who is the one you must serve, who has the backing of God the Father, and who rules and reigns the universe, look no further than Jesus Christ.  For either he’s a liar, a lunatic….

Or the Lord He said He was.

The Bible says that “Jesus died (comma), was buried (COMMA), AND THAT HE ROSE AGAIN THE THIRD DAY”.  That’s the Good News friend – that tiny little punctuation mark, signifying that the story isn’t over – that there is so much more to Jesus than a dead God.

Today, I can go visit Mohammad’s grave.  Buddha’s gravesite is accessible for me to visit.  Joseph Smith, Jim Jones, David Koresh – there have been so many men over the centuries who came along and said “look at me, I have the truth”.  “Follow me, I know what I”m talking about” – and none of them did.

And in almost every case, they had to do something about Jesus Christ first.  They had to write him out of their religion, or write him in as some secondary player.  Because keeping Jesus the way the Bible describes Him would be to confirm they are living in a false religion Creating a false religion is even worse – there is likely a special place in Hell for those like Mohammad, Joseph Smith and more, who have intentionally led millions astray – knowing FULL WELL that they weren’t God, nor His representatives on earth.

They all KNEW they were just mere men, but somehow they convinced millions to go along with them over the centuries, because they may have had some learned truth deep inside.  The Devil can tell the truth too – just enough to convince you he’s real.  Then, when he has you, you may even start to realize you have been deceived.  At that point, you may be in such bondage to the religion chosen – such is the case with Islam – that you can’t break free.

Islam teaches that you must pray 5 times a day.  You can’t ever escape it – because in Islam, there is no overall forgiveness of sins.  You are bound to a sense of religious duty, or you will die in your sins.  It is terribly sad that so many millions of people are so bound by Islam, that they can’t put it down to review another possibility for faith – it is always before them, always surrounding them, and to deny it could even mean death.  As long as they are kept busy with the trappings of faith, they can ignore the fact that their religion isn’t changing them positively on the inside, isn’t bringing them hope or peace or assurance of life after death, or health when they are sick.

To be blunt, if they ever had an encounter with the teachings or person of Jesus Christ, they would realize right away they were being hoodwinked where they were.  However, most religions have a response for the teachings and person of Jesus – either they discredit Him as being lesser than He is, or they discredit His followers’ weaknesses as proof that He couldn’t possibly be that great of a God.

They don’t explain, however, how they are justified in their faith, when many of them are even weaker than we are.

After all, it is not Christians that are accused the most of terrorist attacks globally.

Mahatma Gandhi said, concerning believers in Christ:

“I like your Christ.  I do not like your Christians.  Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”

But wait – Gandhi never said that.  There’s no proof that quote ever came from him.  But so desperate are some to discredit Jesus or the Church, they are convinced that making up nonsense about either is better than nothing. A similar quote appears to be from an Indian philosopher named Bara Dada. The full quote from Dada appears to be from the mid-1920s:

‚ÄúJesus is ideal and wonderful, but you Christians, you are not like him.‚ÄĚ

With all due respect, the personal opinion of some “philosopher” is of little value to me.  Jesus truly IS as ideal and wonderful as the man claimed, and what difference does it make whether man is weak and frail or not, it’s not a reflection on the God we serve, nor can one say “Yah, God’s got some great ideas, but Christians just wreck it for me”.

If you are that weakminded that you can only follow a philosophy or belief that is full of rock solid followers – you must not believe in ANYTHING then.  Because there are weak people in every industry, every career, every nation, every religion.  The above is much the same as saying “I like the laws around here, but the cops are so bad, they wreck it for me, so I can’t respect the law now.”  Well, Good News then – the law doesn’t care whether you respect it, or like its enforcement agencies or not.

Go ahead and break the law, thinking that you are justified in doing so.  Jail will be just as small, the food just as nasty, and orange will be just as much the new black.  The law doesn’t care if you respect it, agree with it, appreciate it, understand it or accept it.  If you don’t obey it, you will be punished by it – and you have no choice in that matter.  (Shawn Jorgensen)

The same is true of God – go ahead and deny His teachers or that of Jesus Christ, stating that Christians have wrecked it for you, or “but I’ve got my guy – I think I’ll just continue to go along with him.”  Well, that’s entirely your choice, but you’re still going to Hell regardless.  Jesus isn’t an OPTIONAL God, like a side of fries with a hamburger.

Jesus is GOD.  Mohammad never said he was a God.  Neither did Buddha, Confusicious, Joseph Smith or a host of others.

Oh but Jesus?  Yah, they all have a replacement, a crisis actor all trained up and ready to go to try to replace him.  It’s Jesus all the religions of the world are gunning for.  It’s Jesus they cannot just allow to exist, nor can they allow His teachings to spread very far.

Because they all know He’s the real deal, and His very existence confirms that they are liars and frauds.  There aren’t “options” when it comes to religion.  There’s Jesus or there’s Hell.  Period.  He’s not a menu item on the religious buffet of the week.  He’s the only game in town.  Run after your circus acts all you want to – it doesn’t make them any more real life than before.  Watching too many cartoons, even believing they are all true, still won’t make them real, no matter what you think.

The Bible says that “it’s appointed for man once to die, and then the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27).  You don’t get to come along after the fact and say “oh, I don’t believe in any of that”.  5 minutes after you die, as you stand before God, He’s not going to be concerned about your belief system at that point, because for you, it will then be already too late to change anything anyway.   One can not simply take Islam back for a full refund, once you realize you have a dead, defective religion that didn’t save you from your sins and keep you from the wrath of almighty God.

If the Indian philospher mentioned previously believed that Jesus really was so ideal and wonderful, why isn’t he following Jesus Himself?  Oh, he’s not following Jesus because Christians are such bad examples?  Nice try, but that sounds like fake news to me.

Jesus Christ has taught every man all they need to know to accept Him and live out their lives.  The Quran even contains some of the teachings of Christ. In fact, here’s a little known fact – Jesus is mentioned by name much more often than Mohammad is!  This “secondary player”, even as a good prophet, gets more play time in Islam than the head messenger Mohammad himself!

The fact that Islam rejects the teachers of Christ as weak or a lie, but still tries to propogate the belief that they admire Jesus is nonsensical.  You can’t call Jesus a liar and a Prophet at the same time.  You can’t cherry pick the teachings and beliefs you want, and reject the rest.  Jesus is ALL OR NOTHING.

Muslims believe that anyone rejecting their faith can be killed.  Nearly 100 times in the Quran, it gives them permission to kill non-Muslims who will not accept the faith.  They spread their religion, not through love, one person at a time – but through conquering nations by the sword.  In a sense, that’s cheating when it comes to creating a religion.  Unfair advantage – just gather enough of an  army together, and the rest is all down to majority rules.

Why do you think they want to immigrate to non-Muslim countries with some intense volumes of people?  It’s an invasion!  They want to seek to weaken our flanks and to slowly erode our freedom of relgion.

Here’s the bottom line –  Islam came along at least 700 years after Jesus had already left for Heaven again.  They don’t get to define terms or who God or Jesus are.  They don’t get to decide for the rest of us whether Jesus died and was raised again or not. 

They are a false religion in the opinion of the Church, and Mohammad merely tried to respond to the Christian presence throughout the world, by creating this religious system.  The religious aspect of Mohammad was quickly lost behind the military actions he took, as the religion at the time never really took root.  So he conquered by the sword, spreading his “faith” by force.

 Muslims call Jews and Christians “polytheists” (worshippers of many gods) several times in the Qu’ran. Where on earth do they get the idea that either Jews or Christians promote such nonsense – where’s the proof that we influence those type of people?

 And Allah is to judge believers in Christ?  That’s odd, because the Bible says that “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.  (Romans 8:1)

The Qu’ran of course speaks to the deity and Sonship of Christ in the Trinity as well:

And yet some people assert, “God has taken unto Himself a son!” Limitless is He in His glory!  Nay, but His is all that is in the heavens and on earth; all things devoutly obey His will. (2:116 (Asad)

Some assert” that God has taken a son? So in other words, the Quran is debating this?  It seems so. And those people “asserting” this are Christians, of course. How convenient that Islam gets to comment on other religions and their followers, trying to have the last word, like it matters to the teachings of the Bible whether Islam comments on them afterwards or not.  The Bible says that “Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and forever!” (Hebrews 13:8)

An original, such as a work of art, is never at the mercy of a cheap copy.  Neither is the person and the teachings of Jesus Christ made lesser than by some invented religion that comes along centuries later, trying to discredit it or assimilate its main characters into their religious fiction.

NEVER let anyone tell you that a Muslim accepts Jesus Christ as He truly is.  That is a lie from the pit of Hell.  Al-An’am (The Cattle) – 6:101 [read in context] says:

‚ÄúThe Originator of the heavens and the earth! How could it be that He should have a child without there ever having been a mate for Him – since it is He who has created everything, and He alone knows everything?‚ÄĚ- 6:101 (Asad)

This is the weakest and most nonsensical statement of them all.  God is not limited in his ability to have a Son, who could exist from eternity past until now, just like God does Himself.  God is the Creator – He wouldn’t require the same physical methodology of reproducing as man does.  HE CREATED the system that man uses to have children – he’s not bound by its principles, any more than God must adhere to the principles of time, space, gravity, and a host of other concepts that man is bound to or constrained by on earth. 

And if Jesus is God, He would not be created at all – he simply would exist forever past, present and future as His Father does.  The Holy Spirit as well has always been – He was not manufactured by God at some point down the road – He has always been.

Islam is going to have to do a lot better than that. 

At-Tauba (The Repentance) – 9:30 [read in context]

AND THE JEWS say, “Ezra is God’s son,” while the Christians say, “The Christ is God’s son.” Such are the sayings which they utter with their mouths, following in spirit assertions made in earlier times by people who denied the truth! [44] [They deserve the imprecation:] “May God destroy them!” [45] How perverted are their minds! [46] – 9:30 (Asad)

So when people try try to tell you the God of the Bible and Allah are one – NEITHER Christianity nor Islam believes that at all, and in fact each believes the other is a FALSE GOD. Islam goes one step further, saying that God should destroy us for believing in Jesus being God‚Äôs Son.  And when Muslims say Jesus was a Prophet or a good teacher, they lie because Jesus said He was the Son of God and they consider such belief ‚Äúperverted‚ÄĚ.

The Bible says that “you shall know the truth, and the truth will make you free” (John 8:32).  I encourage you to read the teachings of Jesus from the Bible, which is the only book that has the legitimate right to speak for Him.  And by all means, look at the fruits of Christianity and Islam, as propogated by their members.  Christianity has founded more hospitals, social service agencies, schools, universities, and has done more charitable work, even among Muslims, than Islam could ever even claim amongst its own – and Islam has NO charitable works targetting non-Muslims in need.  That should tell you everything.

But MOST TELLING of all – Baptists are not beheading people.  Catholics are not throwing gays off of buildings.  Lutherans are not stoning adulterers to death.  Presbyterians don’t cut the hands off of thieves.  And NO Christian organization feels the legitimate right to EXECUTE those who walk away from the Church.

Islam will answer for much someday.   But for now, let their actions speak for them – over 35,000 terrorist attacks globally since 9/11 and counting.  That’s not a character flaw, a statistical anomaly, a mistake or an aberration.  That much effort to bring suffering to the world shows the true heart of the religion.

I declare the statement of faith of Joshua, who led the children of Israel into the Promised Land after the death of Moses (from Joshua 24:15):

“Choose you this day whom you will serve.  As for me and my house…
WE WILL SERVE THE LORD”.

Jesus: Through Muslim Eyes

Following our popular article “Easter: Through Muslim Eyes”, published Easter 2016, we want to take a look today at what the Quran, and Muslims, say about Jesus Christ himself.

Believe it or not,¬†Jesus is¬†the most mentioned person¬†in the Quran; 25 times by the name Isa, 3rd-person 48 times, 1st-person 35 times, the rest through his¬†titles and attributes. ¬†That’s right – Jesus is in the Quran more than Muhammad! ¬†Here’s the catch – in the Quran, Jesus is the precursor / John the Baptist figure for Muhammad. ¬†And regardless of whether He’s talked about as a Prophet, a “pure boy” as the Quran also states, even born of a virgin – Jesus is most definitely NOT considered to be the Son of God, as you will soon see. ¬†


If you watch any amount of mainstream news, you have likely been convinced that Muslims believe Jesus was a good teacher or a great Prophet,¬†and that they may have issues with the Church and Christians, but not with Christ. ¬†You’ve likely even heard that “Allah” is just another word for “God”. ¬†I would imagine you’ve also heard that when you boil it all down, we all really serve the same God, underneath it all.

If you’ve heard all this and believed it – you’re in for a rude awakening.

There is a popular belief, spread often by non-Muslims, Western nations’ leaders, and of course by Muslims themselves, that not only is Islam a “religion of peace” (which ironic, outrageous and oddly humorous, in light of the news we read every day), but that Allah and the God of the Bible, and Jehovah of the Jewish Talmud, are all one and the same Divine being.

That is absolute rubbish, and as you are going to see, from quotes pulled from the Quran itself, not only does Islam believe that Christ is NOT the Son of God,  the Quran actually states that any one believing that Jesus is the Son of God Рshould be destroyed by God for their perverted way of thinking.   Open your hearts and minds, folks. We are in a war for our very souls.  And Islam is our declared enemy.  We cannot allow anyone to tell us differently  Рfor we are being led to the slaughter if we do.

Before we get to Jesus, we need to focus on Allah in the Quran.  He is the central figure of the Islamic religion and the one who apparently created the world, and gave us all life.  But if you are being told that He and Jehovah God of the Bible are one and the same, you are going to have to take a second look at the very words from the pages of the Quran themselves.  Whoever Allah is, he is not what Christians would recognize as the God of the Bible.

Christianity teaches that Jesus is the Son of God, but the Quran says:

    Why is Christ always making Satanic hand gestures with his right hand in almost EVERY Catholic and Muslim painting of Him?

    And they say, “None will enter Paradise except one who is a Jew or a Christian.” That is [merely] their wishful thinking, Say, “Produce your proof, if you should be truthful.” (2:111)¬†

The Quran mentions in chapter 3, verses 52-53, that the disciples submitted to the faith of Islam:

When Jesus found Unbelief on their part He said: “Who will be My helpers to (the work of) Allah?” Said the disciples: “We are Allah’s helpers: We believe in Allah, and do thou bear witness that we are Muslims.
Our Lord! we believe in what Thou hast revealed, and we follow the Messenger; then write us down among those who bear witness.”

The Muslim Christ is a false god. He is not the Jesus of the Bible, stripped of His deity, and having not died for our sins, this false Christ CANNOT therefore beis not our Saviour – just as Muslims like Him to be. And what is with the feminine-looking Christ and Mohammad, that we see in virtually all Catholic and Muslim representations of Christ and Mohammad?”

The longest narrative involving Jesus’ disciples is when they request a laden table to be sent from Heaven, for further proof that Jesus is preaching the true message:

Behold! the disciples, said: “O Jesus the son of Mary! can thy Lord send down to us a table set (with viands) from heaven?” Said Jesus: “Fear Allah, if ye have faith.”
They said: “We only wish to eat thereof and satisfy our hearts, and to know that thou hast indeed told us the truth; and that we ourselves may be witnesses to the miracle.”

Good-Friday-Re-Enactment-22-1024x576The Bible says that “Jesus died (comma), was buried (COMMA), AND THAT HE ROSE AGAIN THE THIRD DAY”.¬† That’s the Good News friend – that tiny little punctuation mark, signifying that the story isn’t over – that there is so much more to Jesus than a dead God.

Today, I can go visit Mohammad’s grave.¬† Buddha’s gravesite is accessible for me to visit.¬† Joseph Smith, Jim Jones, David Koresh – there have been so many men over the centuries who came along and said “look at me, I have the truth”.¬† Follow me, I know what I”m talking about – and none of them did.

And in almost every case, they had to do something about Jesus Christ first.¬† They had to write him out of their religion, or write him in as some secondary player.¬† Because keeping Jesus the way the Bible describes Him would be to confirm they are living in a false religion.¬† Creating a false religion is even worse – there is likely a special place in Hell for those like Mohammad, Joseph Smith and more, who have intentionally led millions astray – knowing FULL WELL that they weren’t God, nor His representatives on earth.

maxresdefault (1)They all KNEW they were just mere men, but somehow they convinced millions to go along with them over the centuries, because they may have had some learned truth deep inside.¬† The Devil can tell the truth too – just enough to convince you he’s real.¬† Then, when he has you, you may even start to realize you have been deceived.¬† At that point, you may be in such bondage to the religion chosen – such is the case with Islam – that you can’t break free.

Islam teaches that you must pray 5 times a day.¬† You can’t ever escape it – because in Islam, there is no overall forgiveness of sins.¬† You are bound to a sense of religious duty, or you will die in your sins.¬† It is terribly sad that so many millions of people are so bound by Islam, that they can’t put it down to review another possibility for faith – it is always before them, always surrounding them, and to deny it could even mean death.

As long as they are kept busy with the trappings of faith, they can ignore the fact that their religion isn’t changing them positively on the inside, isn’t bringing them hope or peace or assurance of life after death, or health when they are sick.

Jesus is mentioned by name more in the Qu’ran than Mohammad is. But it’s not THE Christ of the Bible. He’s a fraud

To be blunt, if they ever had an encounter with the teachings or person of Jesus Christ, they would realize right away they were being hoodwinked where they were.¬† However, most religions have a response for the teachings and person of Jesus – either they discredit Him as being lesser than He is, or they discredit His followers’ weaknesses as proof that He couldn’t possibly be that great of a God.¬† They don’t explain, however, how they are justified in their faith, when many of them are even weaker than we are.¬† After all, it is not Christians that are accused the most of terrorist attacks globally.

Mahatma Gandhi said, concerning believers in Christ:

“I like your Christ.¬† I do not like your Christians.¬† Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”

But wait – Gandhi never said that.¬† There’s no proof that quote ever came from him.¬† But so desperate are some to discredit Jesus or the Church, they are convinced that making up nonsense about either is better than nothing. A similar quote appears to be from an Indian philosopher named Bara Dada, brother of¬†Rabindranath Tagore. The full quote from Dada appears to be from the mid-1920s:

‚ÄúJesus is ideal and wonderful, but you Christians, you are not like him.‚ÄĚ

With all due respect, I call BS here.¬† Jesus truly IS as ideal and wonderful as the man claimed, and what difference does it make whether man is weak and frail or not, it’s not a reflection on the God we serve, nor can one say “Yah, God’s got some great ideas, but Christians just wreck it for me”.¬† If you are that weak minded that you can only follow a philosophy or belief that is full of rock solid followers – you must not believe in ANYTHING then. Because ISLAM IS FULL of weak followers – as well as crazed ones that won’t think twice about blowing up a crowded market full of women and children in the name of Allah.

There are weak people in every industry, every career, every nation, every religion.¬† The above is much the same as saying “I like the laws around here, but the cops are so bad, they wreck it for me, so I can’t respect the law now.”¬† Well, Good News then – the law doesn’t care whether you respect it, or like its enforcement agencies or not.

quote-ignorance-of-the-law-is-no-excuse-in-any-country-if-it-were-the-laws-would-lose-their-thomas-jefferson-89-29-81.jpgGo ahead and break the law, thinking that you are justified in doing so.¬† Jail will be just as small, the food just as nasty, and orange will be just as much the new black.¬† The law doesn’t care if you respect it, agree with it, appreciate it, understand it or accept it.¬† If you don’t obey it, you will be punished by it – and you have no choice in that matter.

The same is true of God – go ahead and deny His teachers or the teachings of Jesus Christ Himself.¬† Tell Christ¬†that Christians have wrecked it for you, or “but I’ve got my guy – I think I’ll just continue to go along with him.”¬† Well, that’s entirely your choice, but you’re still going to Hell regardless.¬† Jesus isn’t an OPTIONAL God, like a side of fries with a hamburger.¬† Jesus is GOD.¬† Mohammad never said he was a God.¬† Neither did Buddha, Confucious, Joseph Smith or a host of others.¬† Jesus did.¬† Several times in fact, and you MUST face what Jesus said about HIMSELF, before you can ever buy into what others say about Him.

maxresdefault
Islam allows Jesus to ascend to Heaven at the end of His ministry – but He didn’t die on the Cross first, according to them. So He’s not our risen Saviour – if HE NEVER DIED.

Oh but Jesus?¬† Yah, they all have a replacement, a crisis actor all trained up and ready to go to try to replace him.¬† It’s Jesus all the religions of the world are gunning for.¬† It’s Jesus they cannot just allow to exist, nor can they allow His teachings to spread very far.¬† Because they all know He’s the real deal, and His very existence confirms that they are liars and frauds.¬† There aren’t “options” when it comes to religion.

There’s Jesus or there’s Hell.¬† Period.¬† He’s not a menu item on the religious buffet of the week.¬† He’s the only game in town.¬† Run after your circus acts all you want to – it doesn’t make them any more real life than before.¬† Watching too many cartoons, even believing they are all true, still won’t make them real, no matter what you think.

The Bible says that “it’s appointed for man once to die, and then the judgment.” (Hebrews 9:27)¬† You don’t get to come along after the fact and say “oh, I don’t believe in any of that”.¬† 5 minutes after you die, as you stand before God, He’s not going to be concerned about your belief system at that point, because for you, it will then be already too late to change anything anyway.¬† ¬†One can not simply take Islam back for a full refund, once you realize you have a dead, defective religion that didn’t save you from your sins and keep you from the wrath of almighty God.

Whether you believed in it or not.¬† He really was so ideal and wonderful, as this man suggested, then why isn’t he following Jesus Himself?¬† Oh, he’s not following Jesus because Christians are such bad examples?¬† Nice try, but that doesn’t justify you staying where you are.¬† Whether or not he truly had legitimately terrible treatment by Christians or not, no one is going to be able to use that as an excuse when they stand before God.

“Christian” mosaic icon in the Hagia Sofia mosque in Istanbul, Turkey. And here we go again, Jesus stuck as a baby on Momma’s knee. Powerless, yet somehow able to make a Satanic symbol with his right hand. And who are grandma and grandpa in this picture?

Jesus Christ has taught every man all they need to know to accept Him and live out their lives.¬† The Qu’ran even contains some of the teachings of Christ.¬† They fact that they reject those teachings as weak or a lie – but somehow still try to propogate the belief that they admire Jesus is nonsensical.¬† You can’t call Jesus a liar and a Prophet at the same time.¬† You can’t cherry pick the rules and teachings and beliefs you want, and reject the rest.

They believe that anyone rejecting the faith can be killed.¬† They believe that they have permission to kill non-Muslims if they will not accept the faith.¬† They spread their religion, not through love, one person at a time – but through conquering nations by the sword.¬† In a sense, that’s cheating when it comes to creating a religion.¬† Unfair advantage – just gather enough of an army together, and the rest is all downhill from there.

Why do you think they want to immigrate to non-Muslim countries with some intense volumes of people?¬† It’s an invasion!¬† They want to seek to weaken our flanks and to slowly erode our freedom of religion.

Easter-1Here’s the bottom line –¬† Islam came along at least 700 years after Jesus had already left for Heaven again.¬† They don’t get to define terms or who God or Jesus are.¬† They don’t get to decide for the rest of us whether Jesus died and was raised again or not.

They are a false religion in the opinion of the Church, and Mohammad merely tried to respond to the Christian presence throughout the world, by creating this religious system.¬† The religious aspect of Mohammad was quickly lost behind the military actions he took, as the religion at the time never really took root.¬† So he conquered by the sword, spreading their “faith” by force.

What do Muslims mean by the “polytheists speak the same as their words“? ¬†Polytheism is the belief in many Gods. ¬†Where on earth do they get the idea that either Jews or Christians promote such nonsense?¬† Because we believe in the TRINITY in Christian circles.¬† And Allah is to judge believers in Christ? ¬†That’s odd, because the Bible says that “There is therefore¬†now¬†no condemnation¬†to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.¬† (Rom 8:1)

“And yet some people assert, “God has taken unto Himself a son!” Limitless is He in His glory!” [2:116], the Qu’ran states.

Some “assert” that God has taken a son? So in other words, the Quran is debating this? ¬†It seems so.

 Nay, but His is all that is in the heavens and on earth; all things devoutly obey His will. Р2:116 (Asad)

Al-An’am (The Cattle) – 6:101 [read in context]

‚ÄúThe Originator of the heavens and the earth!¬†How could it be that He should have a child¬†without there ever having been a mate for Him – since it is He who has created everything, and He alone knows everything?‚Ä̬†– 6:101 (Asad)

This is the weakest and most nonsensical statement of them all.¬† God is not limited in his ability to have a Son, who could exist from eternity past until now, just like God does Himself.¬† God is the Creator – He wouldn’t require the same physical methodology of reproducing as man does.¬† HE CREATED the system that man uses to have children – he’s not bound by its principles, any more than God must adhere to the principles of time, space, gravity, and a host of other concepts that man is bound to or constrained by on earth.¬†

And why would have had to create Jesus at all – why couldn’t Jesus have existed as long as the Father had?¬† The Holy Spirit as well has always been – He was not manufactured by God at some point down the road – He has always been.

Islam is going to have to do a lot better than that.

At-Tauba (The Repentance) – 9:30 [read in context]

AND THE JEWS say, “Ezra is God’s son,”¬†while the Christians say, “The Christ is God’s son.”¬†Such are the sayings which they utter with their mouths, following in spirit assertions made in earlier times by people who denied the truth! [44] [They deserve the imprecation:] “May God destroy them!”¬†[45] How perverted are their minds! [46] – 9:30 (Asad)

So when people try to tell you that the¬†God of the Bible and Allah are one –¬†NEITHER Christianity nor Islam believes that at all, and in fact each believes the other is a FALSE GOD. Islam goes one step further, saying that God should¬†destroy us¬†for believing in Jesus being God‚Äôs Son.

So, in conclusion, when Muslims try to define Jesus, recognize they are doing so without any direct connection to Him when He was alive.  They created a religion 700 years later and conveniently made the central figure of the human race a cheerleader for their false religion.  Who could deny it РJesus was long gone.  Yet they also re-defined who Christ even was at that time.  Explain how they would be able to do so, when not a single Islamic follower in world history was anywhere near Jesus when He walked on the Earth  Everything they state then is hearsay.

 Matthew 16:13-17 says it all, better than I ever could:

When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples,¬†‚ÄúWho do people say the Son of Man is?‚ÄĚ

14¬†They replied, ‚ÄúSome say John the Baptist;¬†others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.‚Ä̬†

15¬†‚ÄúBut what about you?‚Ä̬†he asked.¬†‚ÄúWho do you say I am?‚ÄĚ

16¬†Simon Peter answered, ‚ÄúYou are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.‚ÄĚ

17 Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven.

Victim Value = 1 Muslim > 7+ Christians

There is an uncrossable gulf that separates how much value the Western media and leftists hold for Muslim victims of terror, that were not caused by the Church, and Christian victims of terror caused by Islam.  That has been made painfully clear in the last month, and especially after the horrific terrorist attacks on worshipping Christians on Easter Sunday in Sri Lanka. 

It’s time to speak up about it.

One only has to look at the coverage this week of the Islamic terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka versus the insufferable barrage of inane nonsense that came out of New Zealand after the so-called mosque shooting there, to see just how much the media and leftist jackasses overvalue the death of a Muslim at the hands of non-Christian extremists, over the death of many more Christians at the hands of Muslims.

The mosque shooting in New Zealand was met with national mourning and a pandering prime Minister that wore Islamic clothing more than she wore her own pants suits that week. Giant ceremonies were held where the whole country could come together, as long as they were weeping and gnashing their teeth because of the Muslim “victims” there.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern seems to be looking to see if the media are watching her weeping performance? What an insufferable witch – only days after this shooting, her government would claw back many categories of previously legal firearms, which wouldn’t have changed anything in this situation..

Fast forward to the disaster in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday, when Christians were brutally murdered by the hundreds while they sat in church on our holiest day of the year – their only crime being their celebration of the resurrection of the living Saviour.

And what was the public’s response around the world? All I heard was crickets chirping. I DON’T RECALL SEEING ONE WORLD LEADER SPEAKING OUT ON THIS AT ALL.

And in the most outrageous slight possible, ABC News ran one constant video clip in Sri Lanka of a Muslim woman kneeling on the street weeping about it afterwards. That’s it – that was the sum total of their reporting of public response.

Frankly I don’t give a damn what their responses to this event are – those Islamic pigs COMMITTED THE CRIME.

While 359 people were killed and over 500 were injured by Muslim terrorists in 8 separate attacks in Sri Lanka, including hundreds of Christians killed in Church only, the liberal elite continues to pander to the poor little Muslims in this so-called NZ mosque shooting. Tonight, as we speak, Prince William of the royal family is in New Zealand to support the victims there.

Meanwhile, to add insult to injury band slaughter, the media continues to report that these ISIS butchers perpetrated these attacks as retaliation for the mosque shooting – though NO Christian, NO church and NO Sri Lankan had anything to do with that fake news gun grab committed by the libtard government in New Zealand.

LET ME SAY IT AGAIN – The media and leftists have the unmitigated GALL to actually try to STILL get public sympathy for the Muslims shot in the New Zealand mosque … by painting the Sri Lankan attacks as REVENGE KILLINGS.

THAT WOULD BE THE SAME THING AS THE UNITED STATES LAUNCHING AN ATTACK ON VENEZUELA IN RETALIATION FOR THE JAPANESE BOMBING IN PEARL HARBOR. The two events do not have a damn thing in common, other than Muslims were responsible in one and supposed victims in another.

NO Christian pulled the trigger in New Zealand, NO church was responsible for the attacks in New Zealand, and NO Sri Lankan had anything to do with the attack in New Zealand. To have the gall to paint the attacks in Sri Lanka as some kind of revenge for New Zealand shootings cheapens the deaths of hundreds of people who were even more completely innocent than their Muslim counterparts.

For an unplanned event, there was certainly a quick graphic design response across Western media.>/small>

Hell, liberals and media are even trying to justify the attacks on Sri Lankans as if they deserved it for the attacks in New Zealand.

If the truth be told, and I’m not even going to bother being sensitive about this, Muslims died in the mass shooting in New Zealand because they have committed 35,899 terrorist attacks around the world since 9/11 and people are fed up with them. The Muslims who were killed in that shooting in New Zealand were perhaps innocent victims, though we don’t know what kind of impact they have had on the terrorist attacks around the world by financing some of these organizations or what their support for Islamic terrorist groups is.

However, the Sri Lankan victims were all absolutely innocent parties that had no ties to any other attacks like this anywhere in the world.

Crocodile tears coming from demons shouldn’t be such a surprise.

Frankly I no longer feel one bit sorry for any so-called victims of the mosque shooting in New Zealand. With no due respect, the score is now 35,889 Islamic terrorist attacks to 1 attack back at them. In fact the very week of the New Zealand shooting, which was perpetrated by a white supremacist NOT claiming to be a Christian of any kind, Nigerian Muslims attacked several churches there and killed at least as many Christians…

… and no one gave a damn.

Now, ABC news reports that the Sri Lankan attacks represent the largest attack by ISIS ever in the world. In fact it is rivalled only by September 11th as one of the largest terrorist attacks in recent memory. Certainly the media are reporting the Sri Lankan story now for several days, just as they did with the New Zealand shooting.

But they have to, don’t they, because it’s the largest terrorist attack by ISIS in history.

The difference? Where’s the public outcry?

I don’t see that insufferable shrew of a New Zealand prime minister weeping about this situation, even though SEVEN times more innocent people died on Easter Sunday in Sri Lanka then died in the mosque shooting in New Zealand. 7 TIMES MORE. Apparently, 1 dead Muslim is worth at least 7 dead Christians, according to these idiots.

That could very well be due to the fact that there been so many Christians killed in churches and Jews killed in synagogues by Muslim butchers around the world… In France, Egypt, Israel, Indonesia, Kenya, the Philippines, Nigeria, India, and many more – and now Sri Lanka… everyone just shrugs now.

Well I sure as hell am not shrugging. I boldly declare that I HATE ISLAM WITH A PASSION. I didn’t say I hate Muslims, but DO NOT push me on it, while Christian blood runs through the streets of yet another innocent country because of Muslims.

I wish we could outlaw Islam – the blood cult, demonic false religion, and scourge on society – as the international terrorism group they are. I would love to see the Pope declare a return to the Crusades and a reinstatement of the knights Templar – but he’s such a weak-as-water little delicate socialist princess in full collusion with Islam, that would never happen.

However, if Muslims think they can continue to slaughter Christians around the world by the thousands, they shouldn’t be surprised when some of us in the Church begin to FIGHT BACK. Jesus may command us to “turn the other cheek” – but Muslim mongrels should not take that as a sign of weakness. We may just be avoiding looking at them as we LOCK AND LOAD to defend ourselves against them.

Muslims should have no doubt about our resolve to defend our families, defend our Brothers and sisters in Christ, defend our churches – no matter WHAT that means. And it won’t be a “measured response” either, if we are forced to retaliate. ISLAM HAS DECLARED WAR, and if they want to be martyrs for their cause, and the Church is attacked again – we’ll WIPE THEM OUT and let God sort them out after.

“Over the top, you might say”? How about you just SHUT UP, who pandering TRAITOR, grab a mop, make yourself useful and start cleaning up all the blood on the street in Sri Lanka. When you finish there, you can start in the streets of Egypt, France and a host of other countries that these Muslim butchers have been shooting and killing people in.

And then you can walk over to the neighborhood mosque and tell the illiterate imams there to stop preaching violence against our people – or suffer the consequences when their equally mentally retarded congregations do as they are encouraged to.

Easter: Through Muslim Eyes

¬†Christians –¬†do not¬†be deceived. The war on Easter has begun in earnest. The end goal is nothing short of the complete eradication of the celebration of Easter from the Western, including Canada and the United States.


Let’s examine¬†a quote and photo from a blog named Stand Up For Islam , which we found¬†very revealing¬†concerning Islam’s view on celebrations like Christmas and Easter.¬†(Note: While we have supplied the link to the material for verification,¬†visit their¬†site¬†sparingly.¬†¬†Blogs¬†may receive financial support through adviews, number of visitors, etc. and we do not want to see these funds go into Islamic hands.)

Christian¬†parents¬†of school-aged kids are witnessing the slow removal of any signs of celebrating the true meaning of Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter.¬†¬†They can be forgiven –¬†even admired –¬†for suggesting¬†that¬†they don’t care whether Jewish or Islam holidays are recognized in public schools, as¬†long as Easter and Christmas¬†continue to¬†be celebrated unabated as well.

Sounds reasonable – but you’re out of touch with Islamic reality.¬† Here’s the ugly truth.¬† They don’t want to work with you and they HATE Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving.¬† They also believe that¬†your willingness to be so open-minded is a disgusting sign of weakness. ¬†They are taught to believe that¬†you are a reprobate infidel as are your children, and our religious holidays to them are like Hallowe’en to many Christians.

Don’t believe me?¬†¬†Fair enough. I present unedited (except to add definitions for Arabic words)¬†the first 1/2 of¬†a posting,¬†and accompanying¬†meme, entitled Easter and Islam from the above-stated blog.¬† The author is clearly upset:

“It saddens me to think that we are living in times when the Muslims are being misled, not only by the Christians and Hindus and Buddhists and those from other faiths ‚Äď they are being misled by other Muslims! Celebrating festivals like Easter is haraam. [Refers to anything that is prohibited in the Qur’anMuhammad or would result in sin when committed by a Muslim].

easter-is-haraam-med
by Photos8.com

Although it may be viewed as harmless fun, having an Easter egg, sending Easter greeting cards, wishing Christians a Happy Easter, you are (as a Muslim) doing more harm than good. The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) never adopted the ways of Jahiliyyah (ignorance) to try and bring people to Islam. And even if you’re just trying to be polite and neighborly, you are actually undermining the principles of Islam and keeping people in misguidance.

Other than that, there is the added problem of imitating the kuffaar [derogatory word¬†for¬†we infidels or unbelievers].¬†We are Muslims and we distinguish ourselves as being Muslims and following Islam. There is no need to follow the tradition of another religion, especially if we have been Commanded by Allah and His Messenger (peace be upon him) not to. Allah Has Prescribed for us the festivities we should follow and there is no need to add to this by following something else. If celebrating Easter or any other festival was allowed, it would have been stated in hadith or the Qur‚Äôan.”

Friend, a Muslim will¬†never accept Easter¬†as-is and will feel morally obligated to shut it down.¬† Church, you need to wake up.¬† We are not protecting chocolate bunnies and Easter egg hunts here.¬† The commemoration and celebration of the events of Good Friday and Easter Sunday, and how they changed, and will always continue to change, humanity for the better, are at stake.¬† Easter is Christianity’s Good News – if that is silenced, the very foundation of our faith is blocked from society.¬† Which is exactly what Satan wants to see.

The Glorious Church #3 – Against All Odds

For 2,000 years, the Church has either been up…or getting up off the floor. ¬†She has withstood more opposition than any other single institution in history, with more challenges to her very existence over the last 2,000 years than She should ever have been able to withstand…

Yet stand she does, bearing the scars of many battles, both internal and external, over many centuries. The Church should not even exist today РHer continuous presence over 2,000 years defies logic and reason, and leaves one with only one possible rationale Рthe hand of God Himself must be resting upon Her.  Today, as we conclude this series on the Body Christ, we catch a glimpse of her true character demonstrated through the centuries Рthat of the Church Triumphant.

But a great miracle took place, and John did not suffer any harm. Historians reported that the entire audience of the Colosseum were converted to Christianity because of this great miracle, during the reign of Emperor Domitian.

Many Christians were killed, and others denied the faith to escape persecution – which heavily influenced the development of Christianity, shaping Christian theology and the structure of the Church – and helped spark explanations and defenses of the Christian religion.

313

CONSTANTINE GIVETH, LICINIUS TAKETH AWAY

Roman Emperor Constantine the Great had become a Christian believer.¬† Emperor Licinius had wed Constantine’s half-sister Constantia, and the two leaders split the empire between them. Constantine issued the Edict of Milan, which granted rights to Christians and restored their property. Licinius was not a believer, however, and within 7 years, he marched against Constantine – both wanted the entire Roman Empire. In 320, Licinius expelled believers from the army and civil service and killed some for their faith.

389

PAGANS PERSECUTED

Christianity was never so faithful to the Cross than under persecution When Christianity was made the state church of the Roman Empire in 380 AD, the Church became corrupt and barbaric. In AD 392, pagan religions were outlawed, and Christian monks persecuted them and robbed from their temples. Pagans were forced out of government offices by AD 416 to demand they convert.

476

END OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE

In September, 476 AD, the last Roman emperor, Romulus Augustulus, was deposed by a Germanic prince, and the Dark Ages began in Europe Рa time when the Church took great control over the people and brought much evil and paganism into the Church

478

THE DARK AGES

The cause of this “Dark Age” was the collapse of the Western Roman Empire and the waves of invasions that followed. Many believed the Church caused or significantly contributed to the fall of the Western Empire, and the resulting corruption of the leaders of the Church in Rome damaged the reputation of the Church to this day.

601

PAGAN RITUALS IN THE CHURCH

Pope Gregory encouraged Augustine to go to the Anglo Saxons to be a missionary, but encouraged him to turn the pagan temples he found into Churches, keep some of the pagan ceremonies and incorporate them into Christianity – which was totally blasphemous.

772

SAXON WARS

During the Saxon Wars, the Christian king Charlemagne waged war on the pagan Saxons for over 20 years, seeking to Christianize and rule them. In AD 782, Charlemagne massacred 4,500 rebel Saxon prisoners and made it a law that one must convert to Christianity….or die. The Saxons were the last groups to be converted by Christian missionaries, and mostly because of death threats.

1054

EAST-WEST SCHISM SPLITS THE CHURCH

The East-West Schism, also called the Great Schism, was the church split between present Roman Catholics and Eastern Orthodox churches, which has lasted since the 11th century. Three men all claimed to be Pope at the same time, causing a split for the next 1,000 years. Under a mysterious set of circumstances, Pope Francis and the Patriarch of the Orthodox Church met urgently together in 2017 for reasons unknown, for the first time in 1,000 years. The head of the Orthodox Church then went to Antarctica and performed a bizarre ceremony, consecrating the land to God.

1095

FIRST CRUSADE AGAINST ISLAM

The First Crusade (1095‚Äď1099) attempted to recapture the Holy Land, called for by Pope Urban II at the Council of Clermont in 1095. Crusaders conquered the Holy Land, culminating in the July 1099 re-conquest of Jerusalem and the establishment of the Kingdom of Jerusalem.

1147

SECOND CRUSADE AGAINST ISLAM

A great defeat for Christian armies, the only significant success of the Second Crusade came when 13,000 Flemish, Frisian, Norman, English, Scottish, and German crusaders in 1147 travelled from England to Portugal, where they stopped and helped the Portuguese army expel the Muslims from their capital Lisbon.

1189

THIRD CRUSADE AGAINST ISLAM

The Third Crusade , also known as The Kings’ Crusade, was an attempt by European leaders to reconquer the Holy Land from Saladin. They conquered Acre and Jaffa, reversing most of Saladin’s conquests, but didn’t capture Jerusalem. The Pope had a heart attack and died when he heard the news about Jerusalem.

1202

FOURTH CRUSADE AGAINST ISLAM

The Fourth Crusade, called by Pope Innocent III, originally intended to reconquer Muslim-controlled Jerusalem by means of an invasion through Egypt. Instead, a series of events ended with the Crusaders sacking the city of Constantinople, the capital of the Christian-controlled Byzantine Empire.

1217

FIFTH CRUSADE AGAINST ISLAM

The Fifth Crusade was an attempt by Western Europeans to re-conquer Jerusalem and the rest of the Holy Land by first conquering the powerful Ayyubid state in Egypt. Their attacks on Jerusalem ended in defeat

1228

SIXTH CRUSADE AGAINST ISLAM

The Sixth Crusade started as an attempt to regain Jerusalem but involved very little fighting. The Holy Roman Emperor, Frederick II negotiated the Kingdom of Jerusalem into regaining some control over Jerusalem for most of the next fifteen years (1229‚Äď39, 1241‚Äď44) as well as over other areas of the Holy Land.

1248

SEVENTH CRUSADE AGAINST ISLAM

The Seventh Crusade was led by King Louis IX of France, but he was defeated by the Egyptian army, and captured by the Muslim armies, who demanded 800,000 gold coins for his release and return to France.

1270

EIGHTH CRUSADE AGAINST ISLAM

The Eighth Crusade was launched again by Louis IX of against the city of Tunis, but he died just after arriving on the shores of Tunisia, with his disease-ridden army dispersing back to Europe shortly afterwards.

1271

NINTH CRUSADE AGAINST ISLAM

King Edward sailed to Acre, Israel, and saw several impressive victories Рbut he eventually had to withdraw because of issues at home. Soon after, the last remaining crusader stronghold on the Mediterranean coast was destroyed.  The last Crusade had been lost.

1478

SPANISH INQUISITION

The King and Queen of Spain, Ferdinand and Isabella began this horrific reign of terror against Jews, pagans, Muslims and anyone else that would convert to Christianity. The nightmare went on for over 250 years, and saw 150,000 convicted of “crimes”, and up to 5,000 executed

1517

THE REFORMATION

The Protestant Reformation was a church split in Western Christianity initiated by Martin Luther and continued by John Calvin and others in 16th-century Europe. It started with the publication of the Ninety-five Theses by Martin Luther in 1517. Catholic doctrine teaches to this day that Protestant Christians will not go to Heaven and ironically, Protestants believe the same of most Catholics.

1536

PORTUGUESE INQUISITION

The major target of the Portuguese Inquisition were those who had converted from Judaism to Catholicism, but were thought to still be practising Jews. Many of these were originally Spanish Jews who had left Spain for Portugal, when Spain forced Jews to convert to Christianity or leave. The number sentenced is estimated at around 40,000 and over 1,000 were executed.

1542

ROMAN INQUISITION

The Church begins to target itself for annihilation when this Inquisition was declared by the Pope in Rome. Responsible for prosecuting individuals accused of committing offenses relating to heresy, including Protestantism, sorcery, immorality, blasphemy, Judaizing and witchcraft, as well as for censorship of printed literature. The most famous victims were Copernicus, who devised a theory that the Sun was at the center of the universe, and the famed astronomer Galileo, who was put under house arrest for the rest of his life. Between 50,000 and 70,000 cases were tried, and 1,500 were executed.

1854

MARY WORSHIP BEGINS

The Catholic Church elevated Mary to the level of mediator, advocate, and co-redeemer of humanity, in direct contradiction of Scriptures. Pope Pius IX declared Mary ‚Äúimmaculate,‚ÄĚ or sinless, thus giving her the position of mediator, in opposition to 1 Timothy 2:5:”For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”.

1890

MEXICAN CHRISTIANS MARTYRED

The number of Catholics killed in Mexico from the late 1800s to 1930 is estimated at 107,000,

1899

BOXER REBELLION

The Boxer Rebellion in China is responsible for at least 200,000 Christians and foreigners being executed.

1917

RUSSIAN REVOLUTION AND SOVIET UNION KILLS MILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS

Czar Nicholas and his family are assassinated in the Russian Revolution, and Christianity is declared illegal by the  Communists. The state advocated the destruction of religion, and it pronounced religion to be superstitious and backward. The Communist Party destroyed churches, ridiculed, harassed, incarcerated and executed religious leaders, flooded the schools and media with anti-religious teachings. The total number of Christian victims under the Soviet regime has been estimated to range between 14-22 million.

1933

THE NAZI NIGHTMARE

Atheists and neo-Nazis today like to claim Adolf Hitler was a Christian – nothing could be further from the truth. Under the dictator and his Nazi Party, thousands of Lutheran pastors were executed, along with up to 1 million Christian believers during the war.

1949

COMMUNIST CHINA KILLS HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF CHRISTIANS

An estimated 700,000 Christians are martyred by Communist China.

1950

NORTH KOREA KILLS BELIEVERS

Before World War II missionaries were active throughout the Korean Peninsula, then a Japanese colony, and more than a fifth of the population was Christian – about 2 million people. Between 300,000 and 500,000 Christians are believed to remain in North Korea today, with hundreds of thousands sent to the largest concentration camp system in the world.

1971

UGANDAN CHRISTIANS MARTYRED

300,000 Christians are believed to have been killed under Idi Amin in Uganda between 1971 and 1979.

Liberal Liars and the Trump Immigration Ban

 

On Friday, January 27, 2016, President Donald Trump signed an Executive Order in which he partially banned immigration in the United States by citizens from seven different countries: Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Libya, Yemen, Syria, and Sudan.

This wasn’t a surprise since the president was fulfilling at least part of a campaign promise for a TOTAL ban on immigrants from Islamic countries for an indefinite period. The media firestorm has been daunting, and most people would not have been able to withstand the withering attacks in social media and in all major news outlets all day Saturday. They obviously know very little about Donald Trump.


UPDATE – JUNE 26, 2017

On Monday, June 26, 2017, President Trump signed a new Executive Order, restricting travel by residents of six countries into the United States for a period of 90 days Рwhich included all of the original countries in the January 28 travel ban, with the exception of Iraq.  This new Order was crafted to counter the firestorm generated by the news media, and subsequent judiciary intereference in carrying out the original Order.

That same day, the United States Supreme Court said it would allow the government to implement parts of its¬†suspended travel ban¬†against citizens from the six Muslim-majority countries with one major caveat: ¬†The ban cannot apply to those with ‚Äúa credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.‚ÄĚ

The state department has now attempted to define what counts as a ‚Äúbona fide relationship.‚ÄĚ Visa applicants from Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, Iran, and Yemen will¬†be able to enter the United States if they can prove that a close family member is already living in the US, according to a¬†state department cable¬†seen by the Associated Press. That includes parents, spouses, children, adult sons or daughters, son-in-laws or daughter-in-laws or siblings, but not ‚Äúextended family members‚ÄĚ like grandparents, aunts or uncles, cousins, in-laws, or fianc√©s.

ORIGINAL POST – JANUARY 28, 2017

Then, less a week after being sworn into office, President Trump issued an Executive Order on Friday, January 27 entitled: “PROTECTING THE NATION FROM FOREIGN TERRORIST ENTRY INTO THE UNITED STATES”, to fulfill at least part of a 2016 election campaign promise. (Full text of the Order may be found here).

: (CNN)
(Credit: CNN)

Now, this Executive Order isn’t even close to what the President promised to do, which initially was¬†a total ban on Islamists coming into the United States.¬†The libtard news media were outraged that a President would dare do the very thing he promised for 6 months or more to do on the campaign trail. ¬†Utilizing the usual gaggle of half-baked celebrity interviews, and panels of “experts”, fake news networks like CNN practically frothed at the mouth with excitement over the story, which they believed would devastate Donald Trump politically.

After the Executive Order was signed, several leaders in the high-tech sector came out swinging against the ban, in a very calculated, concerted effort Рand receivedreceving far more coverage from mainstream media than their positions or influence deserved.  Why this industry is so specifically harmed by this ban, or chosen as spokesmen for its opposition, is beyond me.  However, it should be of concern to federal regulators that privacy piranhas like Google, Apple, and Microsoft are also now admitting to be hiring people from extremely undesirable places in the world, none of which seem to have any kind of vibrant tech sector previously.  One could understand a backlash if we banned residents of India, for example, because they have a widely recognized tech sector.  But Iraq?  Yemen?  Somalia?  Give me a break Рdo they even have stable electricity in all of these countries?

Here are just a few of their tweets and statements

Throughout Saturday, January 28, several news outlets РCNN and the New York Times Рwere painfully obvious in their biased reporting of this Executive Order:

  1. ¬†CNN reported that the ban affected 135 million people. The source of this “amazing statistic” (my codeword for “fake news”) is a mystery. ¬†As¬†IBI Times reported on August 13, 2015:

The immigrant population in the United States hit a record high of 42.1 million in the second quarter of this year, an analysis of monthly Census Bureau data by the Center for Immigration Studies, released Thursday, has revealed. The number of immigrants rose by 1.7 million since the same time last year. Immigrants currently comprise 13.3 percent of the nation’s total population, reaching the highest level in the nation in 105 years.

On average, there have been approx. 1 million immigrants a year, and this ban is currently for 4 months only maximum. In addition, the countries named have never been a big immigrant source for America, with the exception of Iraq in the top 10 nations, with at about 96,000 per year.

The countries affected by the ban include:

Iran:

  • ir-lgflagPopulation: 82,801,633 (July 2016 est.).
  • In America: 470,341 self-identified Iranian-American (2011 American Community Survey, US Census Bureau).
  • Religion: Muslim (Shia 60%-65%, Sunni 32%-37%)

Iraq:

Libya

  • ly-lgflagPopulation: 6,541,948 (July 2015)
  • In America: 2,979 self-identified Libyan-American (2000 US Census Bureau)
  • Religion: Muslim (official; virtually all Sunni) 96.6%, Christian 2.7%,

Somalia:

  • so-lgflagPopulation: 10,817,354 (July 2016 est.).
  • In America: 126,948 self-identified Somalian-American (US Census Bureau).
  • Religion: near 100% Muslim, small Christian minority

Sudan:

  • su-lgflagPopulation: 36,729,501 (July 2016 est.)
  • In America: 42,214 self-identified Sudanese-American (2013 American Community Survey, US Census Bureau)
  • Religion: 100% Muslim (100% Sunni)

Syria:

  • sy-lgflagPopulation: 17,185,170 (July 2016 est.)
  • In America: 154,516 self-identified Syrian-American (2015 US Census Bureau).
  • Religion: Muslim 87% (official; Sunni 74%, Alawi, Ismaili, Shia 13%), Christian 10%, Druze 3%

Yemen

  • Population: 27,392,779 (July 2016 est.)ym-lgflag
  • In America: 40,731 self-identified Yemeni-American (2014 Community Survey, US Census Bureau).
  • Religion: 99.1% Muslim (65% Sunni, 35% Shia)

One of the first things I noticed, of course, was that all the flags look the same except for Somalia, which was very strange. I’m sure it’s a coincidence but considering they are in different parts of the world, it’s unusual.

The second thing that I noticed, and probably the most important in terms of what we were just talking about – CNN’s figure of 135 million people being affected by this travel ban is FAKE NEWS. ¬†First of all, as indicated above, there are only 42 million immigrants currently in America, growing by 1 million approximately per year. Secondly, in the 7 countries named –¬†just the sheer number of people living in all 7 countries combined – there are over 219.6 million people. ¬†So CNN literally pulled this number out of its collective rear end.

2. ¬†All media outlets have called this is a ban on Muslims. ‚Äď this is no more a ban on Muslims than calling off a Toronto Blue Jays game could be construed as shutting down Major League Baseball, or taking an item off of McDonald’s menu would be the same as shuttering the entire chain.

First off, Muslims can be found in all 196 countries of the world Рso banning 7 countries out of 196 is 3.5%, not a total ban as the hysterical Left suggests. Nor is a ban on 220 million people in those 7 countries (and not all people living in those 7 countries are Muslim) out of 1.6 billion Muslims in the world (as of 2010, according to Pew Research) valid evidence of a total ban (its 13.7% maximum) on Muslims.  The following Muslim-dominated countries are NOT even affected by this travel ban:

3. ¬†¬†Big media also credits President Trump for picking the countries himself for this ban. ¬†In fact, National Public Radio (NPR) contended that Trump picked countries the family doesn’t do business with. ¬†Total BS. On January 21, 2016, President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security announced that it was placing limited restrictions on certain travellers who had visited Iran, Iraq, Sudan, or Syria on or after March 1, 2011. In February 2016, Al Jazeera reported the Obama Administration added Libya, Yemen, and Somalia to the list of “countries of concern”. That is the COMPLETE LIST announced Friday.

4.   The Executive Order bans Muslims and/or bans these 7 specific countries. A link is provided above tp  the original Executive Order, which President Trump signed on Friday, January 26. The text of the Executive Order is being hosted by CNN Рso there is no inherent Trump bias.

Protesters are very organized – this list was a single days’ activities on January 28. Who’s paying for this and why is #blacklivesmatter involved?

I defy you to read it from start to finish and find an example of more than ONE of those seven countries (besides Syria) that’s actually even named in the Executive Order. I defy you to also find the word “Muslim” or “Islam” anywhere in that Executive Order – IT DOES NOT EXIST.

The Executive Order refers to “foreign nationals admitted to the United States“, seeking “Suspension of Issuance of Visas and Other Immigration Benefits” to “nationals of countries of particular concern” – the administrative staff then simply used the Obama administration’s “countries of concern” list in their announcement.

It does target Syrian nationals specifically as, of course, there was a separate immigration outreach to them, and President Trump had made very clear on the campaign trail that he was not comfortable with it ‚Äď because the US was letting in people who had never been properly cleared. ¬†President Trump said that a system of “extreme vetting” would be developed to screen everyone from those 7 countries in the future ‚Äď therefore suggesting that the ban was a temporary one at best.

SO LIBTARDS OF AMERICA REJOICE – there’s no monster hiding under your bed. There is one visible, however, at virtually every anti-ban protest. This particular monster lies to rile up the crowd – which is tantamount to SEDITION.

Sharia-law-in-EuropeIn April 2013, the Pew Research Center released the results of a startling global survey amongst Islamic believers. As North American media outlets specifically made sure the information was ignored, you could be excused for not having heard of it before.

The survey, entitled THE WORLD‚ÄôS MUSLIMS: RELIGION, POLITICS AND SOCIETY,¬†focused¬†on various aspects of Islamic belief, with an emphasis specifically on sharia law, politics and Islam’s relationship with society in general.

As the opening statement of their survey results revealedsharia-free-zone:

Overwhelming percentages of Muslims in many countries want Islamic law (sharia) to be the official law of the land, according to a worldwide survey by the Pew Research Center. But many supporters of sharia say it should apply only to their country’s Muslim population. (Emphasis mine)

In fact, the number of Islamic supporters who wish to bring in sharia law is staggering in some nations:

sharia-free Support for sharia law may be regional across the globe Рand mostly centered in the Middle East, North Africa and pockets of Asia.  However, within those regions an overwhelming majority of Islamists support it, which should be a huge concern to non-Muslims.

In Chapter 1: Beliefs About Sharia, the Pew Research Center asked whether sharia law was considered by Muslims to be the result of divine inspiration or man-made perspiration.

According to the survey findings, most Muslims believe sharia is the revealed word of God rather than a body of law developed by men based on the word of God:

Muslims also tend to believe sharia has only one true interpretation, but this opinion is far from universal; in some countries, substantial minorities of Muslims believe sharia should be open to multiple interpretations.

Apostasy_laws_in_2013.SVGThis belief in sharia law became much more foreboding, when Islamists were asked what they believe should be done with Muslim defectors Рor apostates as Muslims prefer to call those who leave the Islamic faith.

That is, if one should decide to become a Christian, a Buddhist, an atheist or (God forbid, I’m sure they’d think) a Jew, what should happen to this individual?

Be prepared to die, was the stark answer from many parts of the world:

img_7489-1

Once again, actual Islamist belief does not seem to be in keeping with the propaganda of a “Religion of Peace”, as perpetrated by¬†both¬†Western media and elected officials.

Countries like Germany, Great Britain, Sweden and others where sharia law is being propogated should therefore fully understand the implications of imposing the same.

Elementary School Muslim Thugs – Part 2

Yesterday (Sunday, April 10) we brought you a very shocking story, through our partner blogger Islam Rising, that focused on the allegations of Muslim kids from Syrian families – as young as Grade 3 – that were attacking other children in a Halifax elementary schoolyard with chains, making hand gestures of decapitation and shouting pro-Islamic statements.

It was without a doubt one of the most-read stories we have ever had on the Calling Out Community site – in fact the #3 most-read story of all time out of more than 110 posts in the last year. We are particularly proud of the fact that we picked up on this story up to half a day before much bigger players did so.

The reactions were mostly favourable, minus that of one Muslim woman who had the gall to blame the reaction of the paper, after pulling the story without warning, as being the result of “poor journalism practices“:

image

You were partly correct. There is a newspaper strike into its 80+ day, and the article would have been written by a freelance author. However, that in no way affected the decisions made, nor was the writing of the article in any way the issue – it was the resulting editorial decisions (and accusations made against concerned citizens like ourselves) that we are now quite FURIOUS BEYOND WORDS ABOUT, and we are going to get even.

The paper posted a very revealing response today to the backlash created by stories like ours. What was offered was perhaps the worst piece of yellow journalism CRAP, which they considered their justification for retracting the story:


untitledCHRONICLE HERALD | PUBLISHED APRIL 8, 2016 – 8:01PM | UPDATED APRIL 11, 2016 – 9:01PM

The Chronicle Herald published a story Saturday that has drawn the wrath of many of our readers, particularly online.

It was based on two parents’ allegations of physical bullying and threatening behaviour by some of the children who recently arrived with refugee families.

The school cited in the article, Chebucto Heights Elementary, has had an influx of new students in recent weeks.

The story quoted two mothers who didn’t want their names used for fear of reprisals against them or their children. A third person, a grandparent, was interviewed and had similar concerns.

Since the article ran, another family has contacted us with a similar complaint.

Bullying is a sensitive subject. So is the integration of newcomers, particularly those who have faced challenges, even trauma, on their way here.

Our story was incomplete and insufficiently corroborated, given the serious nature of the allegations.

Readers also rightly pointed out that the headline ‚ÄėParents worried over school kids‚Äô brutality‚Äô was unfortunate. Using the word brutality to describe children, particularly of an identifiable cultural group, is problematic.

Reaction to the story was all over the map, from thoughtful to downright scary.

Many journalists called publishing the story irresponsible. Some parents weighed in on social media on the need for better discipline and more supports to help newcomers in our schools.

Appallingly, anti-Muslim groups with words like ‚Äėcrusade‚Äô and ‚Äėjihad‚Äô in their names started sharing the article.

We pulled it from our website.

Since then, some readers have contacted us to object to the article’s removal.

Our concern is about more than reaction.

Social media is not a great place for the cautious, well-considered examination of problems. A newspaper ought to be. We should have done better and we will.

We’ll start by asking more questions and getting more answers.

We will also run letters and commentary. Please email us at letters@herald.ca.


Unbelievable.

Here’s our thoughts – 6 things to take away from this piece:

confidentialApparently, in order for a source to be considered valid to this paper, they have to be publicly named? Is that a joke? One secret informant in 1972 brought down a sitting President (Nixon), sent several to jail, and earned the journalists a Pulitzer Prize after the Watergate scandal. Yet, apparently this paper thinks abused kids, terrified by little Islamic thugs already, need to also be exposed publicly for the audacity of criticizing the Muslim community.

 

images821ROVCJThe little Islamic thugs remain free and clear. There even seems to be some justification for their behavior. Notice the soft language used to describe them: they are called ‘newcomers’, ‘some of the children who recently arrived with refugee families’, ‘those who have faced challenges, even trauma, on their way here.’ Oh BOO HOO, poor little Mohamed. Don’t be upset that he choked your kid with a chain around his neck – cause he’s had a rough go. Right, and there are no abused kids in Halifax homes already? They should just shut up and take it?

 

childabuseApparently two different families can complain about the same thing and it’s still not enough. WHOA!  Wait a minute – but isn’t the paper now admitting that parents or grandparents have come forward now from four different families with the same story? How many kids have to come forward before its considered a story? What’s your child abuse minimum, Halifax Chronicle Herald?  (Oh yes, by the way Herald Chronicle,  ignoring or worse, even justifying child on child attacks is a form of abuse too).

 

These kids are ISIS soldiers - brutality can be a learned behaviour at any age.
These kids are ISIS soldiers – brutality can be a learned behaviour at any age.

“Using the word ‘brutality’ to describe children, particularly of an identifiable cultural group, is problematic.”  Wow, I guess the cultural elite in Halifax don’t get out much.  Perhaps it’s best we don’t tell the sensitive little darlings at this paper that there are videos on YouTube of Palestinian 3 year olds singing “death to Israel” songs (yes, there actually are songs) while brandishing knives.  Little ISIS soldiers under 10 years of age are slicing people’s heads off in other video horrors.  Kids can be brutal if they are taught to be.   But apparently in Halifax, it’s not considered ‘brutality’ when kids choke other kids in Grade 3 with chains. An autistic kid is threatened with decapitation but that’s not brutal? Children are even told that “Muslims will conquer the world”.  And yet you believe that the only truly problematic part of this story is the fact that some thinking people called it “brutality”?

thought-police-e1369141340932“Appallingly, anti-Muslim groups with words like ‚Äėcrusade‚Äô and ‚Äėjihad‚Äô in their names started sharing the article.” And that is the reason, dear friends, why a newspaper deleted its own stories from its own site.  Because someone was sharing it.  Sorry, is that not a newspaper’s actual REASON FOR EXISTENCE?  And is it in fact not the ULTIMATE MARKETING PLAN of most news media outlets today to boldly share controversial stories without compromise, and to have people you don’t even like or agree with share that story with others?

We used to call that “promotion“.  Are left-wing media outlets today so insecure about their messages that they now try to decide who gets to even read them One wonders what the editors of this paper would do if they knew that people actually use their newspaper to dry newly-washed windows, soak up any urine the new puppy might dribble out, cover the bottom of the bird cage, or to use as lightweight packing material for boxing up shiome nuts.  My God, the Halifax paper would fold in a week (pardon the pun).  Let’s keep these revelations our little secret – the poor ‘journalistic’ darlings are apparently dealing with enough.

Protecting parents and their kids with warnings about a real threat to their safety is not relevant, I guess – nor apparently is it the lack of this protection on an elementary school playground  the fact that the editors found to be most appalling.

Protecting Muslim reputations is paramount, no matter what the cost to  journalistic integrity or credibility. Clearly Muslims forced them to take the story down – otherwise this newspaper just provided us with a copy of their suicide note.

So, on behalf of the people of Halifax who have depended on you for generations to tell the truth, the whole truth (the W-5 who, what, when, where, why and how), we ask this question of the editors:

Herald Chronicle,  you bluntly stopped readers from being able to access a controversial story on your site, simply because some folks had the audacity to share it.  Therefore, can you now define for us going forward – what the hell is your REASON FOR CONTINUED EXISTENCE? 

This is an truly and incredibly bad example of total CENSORSHIP – from a newspaper of all places.  And we call “B.S.” on this nonsense about an identified “anti-Islamic’ group who would have the word Jihad in their name.  AND SO WHAT IF THEY DO? They have every right to free speech in this country, which one would have thought a newspaper would defend loudly and long.  The Herald-Chronicle has lost their way in this 80 day journalist’s strike I guess, as now they believe they are our den mother or hall monitor, not the provider of the news?

How people use the information a newspaper provides is quite frankly not a journalist’s main concern nor actually any of their business – telling the true story is their only task.

Since when does this paper suddenly feel the need to protect Islamic groups over all others?  How did Muslims suddenly manage to become the victims in this story – or in general?  We’re pre-supposing that anti-Israeli or pro-BDS groups can share this newspaper’s articles to their hearts content, and such actions won’t trigger story retractions from this site, because the stories themselves are often anti-Israel or pro-BDS.

 

Spect_Revolt_Elites_Anton-EmdinIt was hard to pick a winner, but in the end, we chose this sentence as our ultimate lame-ass  favorite: “Social media is not a great place for the cautious, well-considered examination of problems. A newspaper ought to be. We should have done better and we will”.

Well guess what ladies and gentleman? Apparently you’re too stupid to figure this stuff out yourself. Don’t be talking around the water cooler or your Twitter feed about thinge. The cultural elite will tell you exactly how to think.

Here’s our message to the Chronicle Herald – SCREW OFF. No one asked the you to give a “cautious well-considered examination” of anything. Tell the damn story – who, what, when, where and why. We can figure out what it means for us, thanks just the same.

FINAL WORD

imageFolks, forget what these idiots have to say. They gave up their right to be heard when they deleted their story.

If you want to know what’s really going on with this story, checkout the Rebel Media video. They have boots on the ground in Halifax and they have uncovered a shocking story that the cultural elite – and the Liberals – don’t want you to know. What else is new.

Media Protects Syrian Child Attackers

On Saturday, April 9, the Halifax Chronicle Herald¬†published a very provocative story with the title “Parents worried over school kids‚Äô brutality at Chebucto Heights Elementary School.”. The story, along with the rest of the Saturday paper, was distributed¬†to 72,000 homes that morning, according to 2014 circulation stats.

But today, just one day later, you will find the following, when you attempt to view the story on their website:

If you didn’t or couldn’t read the retraction statement, we’ve taken the liberty to reprint it:

This story has been removed. ¬†Bullying is a sensitive subject. ¬†So is the integration of newcomers, particularly those who have faced challenges, even trauma, on their way here. ¬†Our story was incomplete. ¬†More work needs to be done and will be done before the story is republished. ¬†We should have done better and we will.”

If I were this reporter, I would sue. ¬†This is lamest thing we have ever read. ¬†“Bullying is a sensitive subject” – yah WE KNOW. ¬†That’s why we need to actually read about it – especially when the article alleged that¬†it’s happening on¬†elementary school property, at the hands of¬†Grade¬†3¬†Islamic thugs using chains to choke other kids, utilizing hand signals to signify cutting off their heads and announcing that Muslims are gonna conquer the world.

img_7082We especially need to read about it when it’s perpetrated by these so-called¬†Syrian “refugees” that our Prime Minister is paying a fortune from our national piggy bank to ram down our throats. Seemingly almost desperate to swamp us with these¬†Third World backwater-and-rape-culture suspects, Trudeau even ordered the selling off our remaining gold reserve¬†to pay for¬†their golden tickets to Canada, and our abundant social welfare programs.

We at Islam Rising (as well our hosts the Calling out Community) don’t care what their reasons were – the Chronicle Herald has demonstrated a gross lack of journalistic integrity with this story, and we’re all about shaming them for it today.¬†¬†If¬†the facts were wrong or the story was made up, then simply state that to the readers. ¬†Don’t papers fact-check stories, especially ones that are this explosive, before¬†they go to print?

This “incomplete story” nonsense, framed with references to “bullying” and “integration of newcomers”, says to us that they in fact¬†were also¬†bullied by¬†possibly the same Muslim community to shut up.

img_7080Staff at the Charlie Hebdo newspaper in Paris criticized Islam and were brutally slaughtered for it. Therefore, excuse us if we refuse to tolerate the bullying of our Canadian media by these Islamic hordes.

To be sure, there won’t be a republished story. ¬†They hope in 2 days you’ll forget all about it. ¬†We’re gonna make sure that doesn’t happen. So here now is the original story in its entirety.¬† The editors at the Chronicle Herald may have been scared into silence. The same knee jerk reaction/retraction after bullying will not be duplicated here. ¬†Enjoy.


img_7078HALIFAX ‚ÄĒ Concerned parents are reporting incidents of violence by refugee students at Chebucto Heights Elementary School.

Reports of students choking, pushing, slapping and verbally abusing their fellow classmates are causing parents to worry about the school’s disciplinary action.

‚ÄúThere has always been some fighting and bickering going on at the school but never to this degree,‚ÄĚ said Missy, the mother of two children who attend Chebucto Heights. She asked to be referred to by her nickname for this story.

Missy said her daughter, who is in Grade 3, was choked on Monday and Thursday last week by two refugee boys. A chain was used on both occasions, but she cannot confirm the size or strength of the chain. She said one boy yelled ‚ÄúMuslims rule the world‚ÄĚ while choking her daughter. School staff intervened, but to her knowledge, the students were not disciplined further.

According to the Halifax Regional School Board, refugees began registering at Chebucto Heights, located in the Cowie Hill neighbourhood of Halifax, in mid-February.

School board spokesman Doug Hadley said, as of last week, there are currently 252 refugee students enrolled in the region, with another 71 waiting on settlement of permanent housing.

Missy’s son, who is in Grade 5, has also been the subject of rough play on the soccer field. During games, refugee students reportedly take their thumb and slide it across their neck from left to right while staring into the eyes of their competitor; imitating the slicing of the throat.

Missy said the school’s response to this and other on-field violence was to cancel intramurals and soccer. But cancelling of recreational activity is not beneficial to students like Missy’s son who has ADHD and relies heavily on physical activity.

‚ÄúSoccer is what gets my son through the day,‚ÄĚ she said.

When asked about the violence at Chebucto Heights, Hadley said he couldn’t confirm whether an individual student had been involved in any behaviour that broke the board’s code of conduct.

He said there‚Äôs no connection between the cancellation of extracurricular activities and any violent behaviour. ‚ÄúThere‚Äôs a term teacher at Chebucto Heights that is finished their term in the next week or so, and they just finished the unit on soccer,‚ÄĚ he said. Intramurals will resume in May when the next term teacher begins.

Another mother, who asked not to be named, said her daughter was slapped after she and a classmate disagreed in the schoolyard. Her daughter reported the incident to her teacher.

‚ÄúThe school didn‚Äôt even call me to let me know.‚ÄĚ

She called and left a message, but said no one has returned her call. She said her daughter begs not to go to school because of the persistent bullying.

A language barrier could be a factor. Many refugee families do not speak English and integrating students into a primarily English speaking environment is bound to cause a few problems.

Missy suggests having an interpreter on staff to help new students understand curriculum or the reason for disciplinary action. ‚ÄúI‚Äôm all for the transition,‚ÄĚ said Missy.

‚ÄúI just think there should be people in the school to help and guide them.‚ÄĚ

The school board says there are currently 19.5 English as a second language teachers working in regional schools. ‚ÄúWe have a long history of welcoming newcomers all over the world to Nova Scotia,‚ÄĚ said Hadley. He encourages an open stream of communication between the school staff, students and parents.

‚ÄúIt doesn‚Äôt matter if the student is new to Canada or if they have been in school for many years in our system,‚ÄĚ said Hadley. ‚ÄúSchools would address it no matter who the child is the same way.”

So media tells a shocker that could bring a very real warning about danger to our kids Рand then just deletes it- most likely after pressure from the Islamic community.  Now, greater pressure from Canadians should be levelled on these editors for making this cowardly decision to pull this story.  This relates to real children in a real Canadian schools who have been attacked and whose very lives have been threatened by real Islamic thugs.

'Oddly enough, I feel offended...'
‘Oddly enough, I feel offended…’

A question to ponder:  if the grade 3 children in this family so easily perpetrate these crimes, imagine what the parents who raised them are like?

Our take on it? Round up the families of every child who instigated this violence and send them all back where they came from.

Don’t give us the “civil society / light shining on a hill” crap either. ¬†This is not redeemable behaviour – and if we allow it to continue we won’t have a civil society anymore. ¬†

These kids are¬†programmed to hate from birth, and their parents may be here to cause us harm. Kids that age don’t pick up “Muslims will rule the world” on Sesame Street.

To¬†our Prime Minister @Justintrudeau: At least for one day in your tumultuous reign and trust-fund-privileged life, can you cut the crap, drop the drama lessons, put the politics aside, grab some balls (maybe your “wife” will let you borrow hers) and do what’s right for Canada.

At least for one day.

Islamic Easter Sunday Massacre in Pakistan

IRiseIslam Rising Special feature to the Calling Out Community, Posted March 27, 2016.


1untitledMuslims¬†said “Happy Easter” to the Christians of Pakistan… by¬†blowing up¬†65 Christians in Lahore, Pakistan – who had gathered at a playground on Easter Sunday to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Let’s¬†cut to the chase – I’ve¬†had enough. ¬†I HATE ISLAM with every fibre of my being. ¬†I didn’t say I hate all Muslims – for I believe there are still¬†some¬†good Muslims worldwide.

But don’t bother to¬†try to argue this point, or tell me Islam is a Religion of Peace. It’s a #ReligionofPieces. Pieces of New York, London, Paris, Brussels. And now Lahore, Pakistan.

Pakistani women mourn the death of relatives after a bomb blast in Lahore on March 27, 2016 (AFP / Arif Aliarif)

And don’t talk to me about “moderate Muslims”. ¬†Let’s look at the facts:

  • “Moderate” Muslims in Brussels not only hid the terrorist mastermind behind the Paris attacks, they rioted against police once he was arrested. “Religion of Peace” my ass.
  • Moderate” Muslim children in Canada cheered in their schoolyard on 9/11. I saw it on television with my own eyes and heard their comments so don’t bother arguing it.
  • An Muslim Imam (religious leader) in Calgary, Alberta had the gall to say that, if Muslims were a majority in Canada, it would be a “kind of jihad“. ¬†Outrageous.

Anyone who tells me that it is in any way justifiable for 65 Pakistani Christians to be BLOWN UP while at an EASTER SUNDAY service – if you in any way defend Islam in this face of this blatantly outrageous and barbaric attack – I’m seriously going to punch you in the face, then¬†declare¬†war on¬†you.

I’m DONE being tolerant of these Islamic jackasses. I will not kiss the ass of any Muslim from this point forward – I’m not sidestepping the facts to stroke someone’s ego.

6779668I don’t care who you are, I am no longer going to tolerate the Islamic hordes attacking my Christian brothers and sisters world-wide, and then hear your liberal leftwing BS about “loving your neighbour” and other related disgracing of Scripture in order to defend Islam.

If you are a Muslim and you don’t agree with me – if you really are outraged by this horrific attack on innocent Christians during ¬†our high holy day of the year – then let me hear you speak out against this horrific travesty, or SCREW OFF AND DIE! Let’s hear you say that radical Islam doesn’t represent you. If not I will consider you the enemy.

I’ve raren’t¬†heard any Muslims speak out against this outrageous attack – not the one in Brussels, nor the one in Paris. Not a bloody one.

One bright light was an imam in Calgary that stated that he had signed an edict with over 30 other Canadians to discourage ISIS recruitment in their mosques.  But they countered it with this statement:

This is not stopping, this is not reducing; so that‚Äôs why we had to take this initiative, to educate people.”

Ugggh never mind.¬† I guess what they are admitting is that¬†imams have no influence over their people, or more likely,¬† the imams don’t want to influence them in this way.

1134979_quran_verse1_jpg9132653e778a0f98a0dbe4b731bf650dWhy do¬†they sidestep these issues in moderate Islam? ¬†Because the Quran tells them to DO exactly¬†what radical Islam does – kill the opposition.¬†Don’t tell me it doesn’t because there are 109 verses in the Quran that would call you a liar.

There is a teaching in Islam that Muslims can deceive their enemies to get the upper hand. “Religion of Peace” is that tactic – and it’s a clear smack at the Christian faith, whose central focal point, Jesus Christ, is the “Prince of Peace”.

Do not disgrace Scripture by saying we should turn the other cheek, because in the face of such barbaric attacks of innocent Christians, INCLUDING CHILDREN being slaughtered – I’ll turn your other damn cheek for you.

If Islam wants a war with the Church, some of us will be happy to give you one.

Qur’an-Denial: The Foundational Error of the Appeasers

SecondaryHeading


I¬†untitledam posting, for the first time in history, another blogger’s posting, in its entirety, which I trust my thousands of followers around the world will take to heart.¬† Never in my life have I read a more powerful clarion call to sanity on the part of both¬†the Muslim¬†and non-Muslim world.

Today is Easter Sunday 2016 Рand Christians around the world celebrated the resurrection of our Savior Jesus Christ.  This included a small group of believers in Lahore, Pakistan, who gathered near a playground for an Easter event.  That is, until a member of a faction of the Taliban, as reported by Fox News entered the park and blew up 65 Christians, including children Рsending them to be with the One they worshipped minutes before.

9aeb4c7e577ac1ebffbf6aa76ea54352These are the same type of brutish beasts who just days ago stormed an airport and a subway station and brought HELL to hundreds of families in Brussels, Belgium Рand brought HORROR to millions more.

But this isn’t the face of TRUE Islam“, these liars will¬†hiss out.¬† “Islam is a Religion of Peace“.¬† Good bumper sticker marketing – and the greatest lie¬†of the modern age.¬† ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF PIECES – pieces of New York, Paris, London, Brussels – all ripped apart by the¬†most evil¬†part of the most evil religion in world history.

tolerate the intolerant These kind of barbaric, Satanic attacks on innocent civilians, and in particular Christians, whose¬†ONLY crime was worshipping Jesus¬†today,¬†will¬†be clucked and cooed over by liberal leftwing pigs –¬†and¬†those of us¬†who are¬†OUTRAGED will be¬†called:

  • intolerant – and you’re damn right I’m intolerant of this kind of evil perpetrated on anyone.¬†True tolerance of evil, barbaric acts is the real crime here.
  • racist – though they fail to explain how this relates, when Islam is a RELIGION in 200 countries and found among every race, including my own.
  • islamaphobic – even though the word¬†literally means¬†“afraid of Islam”,¬†and I’m¬†not one bit afraid.¬†

B8s4ouZIcAAgZdN-1_jpg-largeThe rise of Islam is the rise of evil around the world. The Bible says that “when the enemy comes in like a flood”, God would “lift up a standard against them”.

May this article be one of those standard-waving not the white flag of surrender, but carrying the banner of Christ worldwide Рand proudly waving the Union Jack, the Maple Leaf, the Star Spangled Banner, to name a few Рwhere democracy and justice still prevail. May God help us in the coming days to stand up to true evil in all its forms, even when it approaches us as an angel of Light.

Defend the Modern World

ap_140595164326

The terror attacks in Brussels, Ivory Coast and Nigeria this past week were (if you’ll tolerate a well-worn paradox) notable for being completely unremarkable. The murders were generic, run-of-the-mill, classical and exactly in step with the history and character of the Islamic religion. As I have said previously, such violence is best understood simply as the Qur’an in action, or Applied Islam, if you prefer. This is what all those elegant Arabic characters materialize into. This is their effect.

There is no ingenious metaphor behind Quranic verses imploring¬†Muslims to¬†kill ‚Äúunbelievers.‚ÄĚ and¬†‚Äústrike of their heads‚ÄĚ. It isn‚Äôt an allegorical way of saying ‚ÄúTry your best in life and be proud of your heritage‚ÄĚ. It means exactly¬†what you think it means. Mutilate¬†and murder people if they derive from a different religious tradition.

The Qur’an murdered those people in Belgium, Nigeria and Ivory Coast. Without it’s message, they would still be alive.

But despite that terrible…

ISIS and Israel Showdown Looms

The United States and Russia may be hitting ISIS harder than anyone, with constant attacks from the air, but Israel is the only country the Islamic State group truly fears, according to a German reporter who spent 10 days with the organization in Iraq and Syria.


J√ľrgen Todenh√∂fer (Credit: http://www.warumtoetestduzaid.de/)

‚ÄúThe only country ISIS fears is Israel,” J√ľrgen Todenh√∂fer, 75, who visited the territory under the control of ISIS accompanied by his son, told British online news site Jewish News. “They told me they know the Israeli army is too strong for them.‚ÄĚ

In 2014,¬†Todenh√∂fer, a former member of the German Parliament from Chancellor Angela Merkel‚Äôs Christian Democratic Union, visited Syria and Iraq, becoming the first Western journalist to be allowed extensive access to¬†¬†ISIS territory – and to return safely from the trip.¬†He has since written¬†the book “My 10 Days in the Islamic State“, published in 2015.

In a subsequent interview he explains that ISIL is a reaction to violent actions taken by¬†western countries in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya. ‚ÄúThey think they can defeat U.S. and U.K. ground troops, who they say have no experience in city guerrilla or terrorist strategies. But they know the Israelis are very tough as far as fighting against guerrillas and terrorists,‚ÄĚ Todenh√∂fer told Jewish News

At the same time, Israel does not seem to fear the same thing with ISIS.¬† Former head of IDF Intelligence Amos Yadlin on Wednesday expressed a contrarian opinion on the dangers of the terrorist group ISIS, responsible for the beheadings of ¬†journalists, as well as thousands of ‚Äúinfidels‚ÄĚ in Iraq and Syria who do not subscribe to their particular brand of Islam. According to Yadlin, there’s nothing to fear from ISIS.

Nor should they worry.  The Israeli Defense Forces is one of the most powerful militaries on earth Рwith 176,500 active soldiers, and a reserve force of 450,000 that can be called up at any moment, they dwarf the estimated military strength of ISIS (approx 20,000 fighters) by nearly 30 to 1.

But Israel’s secret strength is in its mandatory military service for all 18 year olds in¬†the country, both male and female. ¬†In fact, the 1.6 million females trained and fit for service gives¬†Israel the greatest¬†shoeing¬†of female military might¬†possibly in world history. ¬†

Mandatory conscription means that today, over 1/2 of Israel Рmore than 3 million people Рhave been actively trained and have served in the Israeli forces over the last 60+ years.

Then there’s the equipment – while ISIS apparently is in possession of a few tanks, Israel’s military equipment is vast: with¬†over 3,700 tanks, 6,000 armoured personnel carriers, 1,200+ artillery pieces, 680 F15 and F16 fighter jets, over 50 naval ships and even 5 submarines, the legendary armies of Israel could even take on a military the size of America’s

Speaking at an Ashkelon College in September 2014, Yadlin said that despite the shocking videos the group released showing the beheadings of journalists Steve Sotloff and James Foley, ‚Äúthere is no real reason to fear. ISIS is very good at media relations, and using the media to frighten people. They murder their captives in a shocking manner in order to get media attention.‚ÄĚ

The terrorist group may have been bolstered this week when Russia announced it was suspending their air strikes in Syria, declaring their mission a success. ¬†Yet ISIS remains as strong as ever in the embattled country torn apart by a four-year Civil War, so clearly they were not Russia’s intended¬†target. However, Russia “obliterated” a key ISIS base in Syria in October 2015 with a series of airstrikes, so they did have some supporting role to play in the conflict that can’t be denied.

President Vladimir Putin stated yesterday (Thursday, March 17) however¬†that Russia could scale up its military presence in Syria again “within hours” and would still bomb terrorist groups there despite a partial draw-down of forces ordered after military successes.

However, it’s their definition of what constitutes a “terrorist” group that has some scratching their heads.¬† And though they continually state they are “bombing ISIS targets”, they aren’t in the right part of the country to be able to make that claim.

As ISIS and Israel move toward a showdown, stay tuned, this story is definitely not yet fully told, and we will bring it to you as it unfolds.

Angola Bans Islam

Islamic IslamRising: Special feature to the Calling Out Community, Posted July 19, 2015. Updated February 1, 2016.


img_5538

The unfolding story in the tiny Western African nation of Angola on November 22, 2013 barely registered even a blip on the radar of most Western media outlets.

Of course, the messaging on that date was dominated by the Americans, as they marked the somber 50th anniversary of the assassination in Dallas, Texas of the now eternally-young President John F. Kennedy.

It was understandable that CNN, FoxNews and the three major networks (ABC, CBS and NBC) were all distracted.  It was also highly unfortunate, because the implications of this secondary news story that day are staggering.  They could be monumental.  Possibly even revolutionary.

It was British newspaper The Guardian that broke the story that:

“…Angola has become the first country in the world to ban Islam and Muslims, taking first measures by destroying mosques in the country”,¬†citing several Angolan newspapers.

image
An Angolan mosque lies in ruins

I’ll let you read that again, slowly.¬† It was not a misprint.¬† Ladies and gentleman, for the first time possibly since the Crusades¬† began 1,000 years ago, a nation has had the political backbone (and courage of its convictions) to stand up to radical (and even moderate) Islam in all its forms, look at them square in the eye, and¬†legally¬†ban Islam from functioning in any capacity within its borders.¬† It has even succeeded at destroying their houses of worship, with evidence of at least 8 mosques being bulldozed, according to several sources.

Steps to ornate church, El Cobre, Santiago de Cuba, Cuba
Church steps, El Cobre, Santiago de Cuba, Cuba

The specific targeting of Muslim mosques isn’t surprising today, as the backlash against radical Islam gains strength – with their “houses of worship” often¬†seen as hotbeds of radical Islamists.

Worshippers gather for the Papal Mass in Cuba

You’ll recall we reported last year how Cuba refused to give permission for the the building of its first national mosque. ¬†At almost the exact same time, however,the Communist regime under the Castros loosened restrictions on Christianity:¬†Catholics have¬†permission to build their first church in Cuba in 55 years.

President Raul Castro also welcomed Pope Francis to Havana on Septemer 21, 2015 and hosted an open air mass attended by hundreds of thousands of Cubans.  President Castro even stated to the press after the Pontiff left the country:

If the Pope continues talking like this, I may return to the church and start praying again.¬† I’m not joking.”

untitledWhat Angola has done is not unheard of – it’s just much bolder, considering that Islamic infrastructure was already in place and was subsequently dismantled.¬† Angola newspapers quoted their Minister of Culture, Rosa Cruz de Silva as saying, ‚ÄúThe process of legalization of Islam has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human rights, their mosques would be closed until further notice.‚ÄĚ

One could certainly see the rationale for their¬†actions.¬† The Portuguese Empire, the world’s first global empire, conquered and began to rule Angola¬†in 1482 – a full 10 years before Columbus had even discovered America!¬† It was a shameful, abusive reign – for¬†nearly 400 years after, many Angolans were sold into slavery and sent to work in Portugal’s sugar plantations in Brazil, also part of that Empire.¬† This abominable slave trade continued until the 20th Century.

pedro-photos-4In 1961, two separate factions of Angolans, sick of Portugal’s abuse, declared¬†a War of Independence from them. After 14 years of fighting, Portugal granted them their freedom in November 1975.

However that same month,  the two Angolan military factions declared war on each other, to determine who would govern the country.  Soon it became a widespread war with Cuba, China, Russia, the United States and South Africa all playing an indirect part.  That war would last another 27 years, killing over 15,000 troops and more than 500,000 civilians, and ending in 2002 Рjust as the global war on terror against Islamic extremists began.

José_Eduardo_dos_Santos, President of Angola, in recent days
José Eduardo dos Santos, President of Angola, in recent days

The country is tired of war, tired of conflict, tired of drama and strife – all the things that Islam seems to be so good at.¬† President Jos√© Eduardo dos Santos, in power for 34 years, the second-longest running head of state in Africa, reportedly told the Osun Defence daily: ‚ÄėThis is the final end of Islamic influence in our country.‚Äô

Religious organisations are required to apply for legal recognition in Angola, which currently sanctions 83, all of them Christian. Last month the justice ministry rejected the applications of 194 organisations, including one from the Islamic community.

President dos Santos brought in¬†the Constitution of the Republic of Angola¬†(the country’s 3rd) in 2010…and religious freedoms were enshrined in it:

Article 23 (Principle of equality)

2. No-one may be discriminated against, privileged, deprived of any right or exempted from any duty on the basis of ancestry, sex, race, ethnicity, colour, disability, language, place of birth, religion, political, ideological or philosophical beliefs, level of education or economic, social or professional status. [Emphasis mine]

Yet, some belief that the Law was changed specifically to address the Islamic problem since then.¬† Under Angolan law, a religious group needs more than 100,000 members and to be present in 12 of the 18 provinces to gain legal status, giving them the right to construct schools and places of worship. There are an estimated 90,000 Muslims among Angola’s population of about 18 million – which automatically meant that they did not have the required population to be legally recognized.

imagesThe Islamic Community of Angola (ICA) has claimed that, since that announcement by the government, 8 mosques were destroyed in the past two years and anyone who practised Islam risked being found guilty of disobeying Angola’s penal code.

Human rights activists have condemned the wide-ranging crackdown. “From what I have heard, Angola is the first country in the world that has decided to ban Islam,” said Elias Isaac, country director of the Open Society Initiative of Southern Africa (Osisa). “This is a crazy madness. The government is intolerant of any difference.”

Officials in the largely Catholic southern African nation insist that worldwide media reports of a “ban” on Islam are exaggerated and no places of worship are being targeted. ¬†It clearly wants to stay on positive messaging for economic reasons so well – the¬†UK has just named Angola as one of its five “high-level prosperity partners” in Africa and the two countries have a burgeoning trade relationship.

More power to thme. If only our Western leaders had the same backbone.

San Bernardino Mass Shooting -America’s 335th in 2015

By Calling Out Community, Posted December 3, 2015.   Updated  December 8, 2015

According to the Washington Post, Wednesday’s horrific mass shooting in the Inland Regional¬†Center for the developmentally disabled in San Bernardino, California has been deemed the worst terrorist attack on American soil since September 11, 2011.

The child and adult victims of the Sandy Hill Elementary School shooting are mourned in 2012

The 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting was more horrific, killing 20 children and 6 adults, but was not deemed to be a terrorist attack Рthough certainly it was  terrorizing to the general public.

A “mass shooting” is defined by the Guardian newspaper as “four or more people shot in one incident.” In speaking about this specific attack, President Barack Obama said:

We should never think that this is something that just happens in the ordinary course of events‚ÄĚ.

The Post doesn’t agree (and neither do we at the Calling Out Community), reporting the California shooting was the 2nd¬†such mass¬†shooting somewhere in the United States that day, the¬†3rd one that week

and the 335th mass shooting within the United States in 2015, as charted below:

Even more horrific Рthe Guardian newspaper went back over the last 3 years, and found that there have been 1,052 mass shootings (with 4 or more victims, alive or dead) in the United States, as defined above, over the last 1,066 days.  That is almost exactly one mass shooting per day, every day, for the last three years.

But even the above statistics do not give a  complete picture of the horrific casualties caused by American gun violence.  According to 2013 data supplied by the US Centre for Disease Control, there were 33,636 gun-related deaths in the United States that year Рan average of 92 deaths per day.  It is assumed gun-related injuries would also be extremely high.

In contrast, during the three-year¬†Korean War¬†(June 25, 1950 ‚Äď July 27, 1953), a sobering 33,651¬†American soldiers were killed in action.

KOREAN-WAR-2Stop and think about that for a moment:  Gun-related deaths in the United States in 2013 alone were virtually equivalent in number to all American soldiers killed during the entire three-year Korean War. 

Yet another statistic that I know the left-wing, gun-control friendly crowd out there don’t want you to know – the United States has been plagued with nearly 3 times more mass shootings¬†in the last seven years, during the term of President Barack Obama alone, than under the combined terms of Presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan – a total of 28 years:

  • Ronald Reagan (1981-1989) ‚Äď saw 11 mass shootings with 101 fatalities
  • George H. W. Bush (1989-1993) ‚Äď saw 12 mass shootings with 94 fatalities
  • Bill Clinton (1993-2001) ‚Äď saw 23 mass shootings with 141 fatalities
  • George W. Bush (2001-2009) ‚Äď saw 20 mass shootings with 158 fatalities
  • Barack H. Obama (2009-2015 ‚Äď 7th Year) ‚Äď saw 162 mass shootings with 864 fatalities. ¬†And he still has a year to go!

Is it also a¬†coincidence that gun-related deaths during Democratic President Clinton’s 8 year terms were equivalent to the number seen during both Presidents Reagan and George H.W. Bush’s 12 years combined, previous to him?

Now, immediately upon letting this unbelievable picture of America’s violent heart sink in, one might be tempted to jump on the gun control bandwagon.¬† After all, less guns on the street would make us safer, right?

IMG_3924-0 That was the New York Times theory anyway, as they broke with tradition on Saturday, December 5 and ran an editorial on the front page of the paper, calling for more gun control Рas we would expect from a very radically-left paper.  It was the first time since 1920 that they have put an editorial on the cover page.

Soon after, Nick Baumann, Senior Enterprise Editor of the¬†Huffington Post, wrote a response piece – The Big Problem With The New York Times’ Gun Editorial – publically criticizing the Times:

On Saturday, The New York Times printed a front-page editorial – its first since 1920 – calling for greater restrictions on gun ownership in the United States. You can read the piece here, but be warned: It’s deeply flawed. (emphasis mine)

What was his issue with it?  The same issue people have used to criticized the gun control movement for decades:

unnamedCriminals do not register guns, do not buy guns legally, do not safely store and transport guns, and will often use them with absolutely no concern for the safety of anyone of any age around them.

Then, in what seemed to be a shocking twist, the Washington Post, considered another left-wing mouthpiece, also came out swinging against the New York Times article.¬† Or so it seemed. But they weren’t in any way attacking the position on gun control.¬† No, they thought the paper was foolish in using the front page of the paper for an editorial that basically “preached to the choir”:

…The Times has (at least temporarily) knocked down a wall by placing an editorial in a spot normally reserved for news. That does not mean the paper’s political reporters will suddenly abandon all sense of fairness as they cover candidates who staunchly back gun rights. But it does give those candidates new cause for suspicion ‚ÄĒ a cause they will almost certainly exploit on the campaign trail.

Whew, that was a relief – for a minute there, we thought that maybe they were going to taken the gun violence epidemic in the U.S. seriously.¬† Nah, just more stupid rhetoric on both sides.¬† The United States does not have a gun issue – guns don’t kill people.¬† People kill people, and America has an anger management issue.

unnamed3.jpgThe country seems to be angrier under Democratic Presidents Рthis conservative is not surprised.  Democrats are often seen as gun takers Рand memberships at groups like the National Rifle Association have skyrocketed during Democratic Presidential terms.

Perhaps the most dramatic tell of all can be seen in the dramatic rise in gunmaker Smith & Wesson stocks, soaring 733% since 2012 alone.

It’s a good time to make guns.¬† It’s not a good time to be in the crosshairs of one.¬† America needs serious help – and gun control won’t make any difference.¬† Take away American guns – and we’ll soon need a steak knife registry as well.¬† The problem isn’t inanimate objects – it’s the power they provide to unstable, angry people holding them.¬† Until America learns how to deal with that, the violence will continue.

Michigan City Bans Mosque 

Islamic IslamRising: Special feature to the Calling Out Community, Posted September 12, 2015.  Updated January 28, 2016

Sterling Heights City Council
A Michigan city’s planning commission turned down a request to build a large new mosque project on September 10, 2015, according to Arabic news agency Al-Jazeera.

And as an evangelical conservative Christian, it may surprise you to know – I actually initially didn’t agree with that decision at all.

The final verdict came down on September 10, the eve of the 14th anniversary of the worst terrorist attack in American history, which, though perpetrated by Islamic extremists, has absolutely nothing to do with law-abiding American citizens that wanted to have a new house of worship.

 An overflow crowd of hundreds chanted ‚ÄúNo more mosques!‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúGod bless America‚ÄĚ outside the Sterling Heights City Hall that day, as the inner chamber was filled to its 240-seat capacity, according to Detroit ABC affiliate WXYZ Channel 7 News.

At issue was the proposed mosque‚Äôs size ‚ÄĒ 20,500 square feet ‚ÄĒ to be built within a residential area. That is an unrealistically large religious building of any faith for a residential neighbourhood.

That being said, the Muslim delegation that were seeking to build the Islamic House of Worship in that area would have happily redesigned the facility to meet with local approval, but citizens and the Planning Committee would have none of it.

WXYZ reported:

Those against the mosque say it would cause too much traffic and congestion. A small group hinted at linking the house of worship to extremism.

Mosque leaders say they offered to revise and downsize the plan, changing the dome and towers, but that didn’t work.

untitledWhen the decision was announced, the crowd both inside and out loudly cheered.  The imam requesting the project wasn‚Äôt cheering, though.  ‚ÄúI think it is more about ignorance,‚ÄĚ Mohammad Ali Elah, of the Islamic House of Wisdom, told FOX 2.

And there’s where the Muslims lost me.  I have to say that it’s hard to believe there could be that much “ignorance” about a mosque in a town like Sterling Heights.  Perhaps it’s the fact the general population has seen TOO MUCH information about Islam in the papers in the last few years, very little of which has been to Muslims’ benefit.

The “ignorance” argument is also hard to swallow, considering the city is in the southeast corner of Michigan‚Äôs lower peninsula, close to Dearborn, which has the second-largest Muslim population in the Western world.

Only Paris, the site of two Islamic extremist terrorist attacks, including the January 7, 2015 Charlie Hebdo massacre and the November 13, 2015 “Friday the 13th” Massacre, has a larger Muslim population in the Western world.

According to the BBC, of approximately 15 million Muslims who currently live in the European Union, France is home to the largest number, equal to around one third of the total (5 million) – and the city of Paris alone has nearly 1.5 million of those.

Also, the proposed mosque in Sterling Heights would be the third in that small city alone, and the second built since 2011, emblematic of the area‚Äôs surge in Muslim residents.

Islamic Center of America, the largest mosque in North America
Nearby Dearborn is also the home of the Islamic Center of America, the largest mosque in North America and the oldest Shia mosque in the United States.  The local Muslim community raised the $14 million needed to develop the Islamic Centre from their own pockets.  The centre includes a gym, a cafe, a car park for 700, a banquet hall, and, at its heart, the mosque with room for 700 men at prayer, and, upstairs, 300 women. Attached to the mosque is a Muslim American Youth Academy, which teaches children from nursery school up to the age of 14.

northridge+auditoriumIn all fairness, in terms of religious houses of worship, it’s hardly the largest in Michigan.  In fact, Northridge Church, pastored by Brad Powell, is listed as the 15th largest church in America, with attendance of over 15,000 per week.  The two-story building holds over 3,000 worshippers.

But what this Muslim group failed to realize – and what likely was the cause of this decision –  is growing irritation with worldwide newscasts of Islamic terrorism around the world.

While Islamic groups in America have done nothing to speak out against such radicals, this particular group in Sterling Heights, and this particular imam, are NOT those type of Muslims.

One quick look at their Facebook page alone would quickly reveal that Imam Elahi is a good man – preaching a form of Islamic moderation that this writer has frankly never seen before:  hosting interfaith prayer services with Christians, participating in media-sponsored dialogues on the subject of Islam and/or religion as a whole in America, etc.

10157353_1049825821735194_89339785643658310_nHowever, all of that good will was lost when he had the gall to chalk this up to “ignorance” – and this tired nonsense from so-called “moderate” Muslim populations has done no them no favors in America.  Rather than understand the fear and mistrust that Americans have because of the unrelenting negative news that Islam has created, this imam sought instead to make American feel bad, even insulted Americans for it.

Start speaking out against the ignorance of Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, ISIS and other crazies and then we’ll talk about your mosques.  Until you can prove you are “for us, not against us”…

… your loyalties are questionable, and your mosques are not welcome in our neighbourhoods.
