DYING FOR ISLAM

I know that as a “conservative” I am supposed to be for the war. Somewhere along the road to freedom war became an expression of Christian values.
Now don’t get me wrong, I am not a peacenik, nor opposed to military action whenever it is Biblically justified. But I have to tell you, I have never been a supporter of the war to “spread democracy.” I believe that because of the emotion associated with the attacks of 911, we entered into a “war” without a clearly identified opponent, with a foggy vision of what it would look like, and without a clear understanding of the mission.
Terrorism cannot be an opponent. Terrorism is a technique. Fighting a “war on terror” is far too indiscriminate and nebulous to be effectively targeted.
Terror is defined as “intense, overpowering fear.” Different things bring terror to different people. Some folks are terrorized by dogs; others by bill collectors; and some by the thought of “forced immunizations” or ACORN workers collecting information for the Census.
Is America fighting a war on “terror in the womb?” (I bet those little babies face far more terror than the average Joe.) In fact, if you were to ask the babies, I bet they would rather see troops fighting terror at the abortion clinics than in the sandboxes of Afghanistan. Fighting terror is sort of like fighting “hate.” Both are emotions that cannot be controlled by outside forces.
It is time we came clean and had the courage to speak the truth. America is not waging a “war on terror”, but rather, a war against radical Islam. The Islamic terrorists use terror as a weapon. As I heard someone say, “Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all the terrorists are Muslim.”
Enough already of the politically correct crap; we will never win the “war on terror” until we identify the enemy. Radical Islam is the enemy and it is time we said so. Because we have denied America’s Christian roots it is hard for us to acknowledge the obvious. America is engaged in a religious war. Lukewarm, American Christianity has become the target of white-hot radical Islam. The roots of this war go back fourteen centuries to even before the Crusades.
Modern methods of travel no longer allow the two oceans bordering America to serve as the protective “moat” that for 200 years kept our enemies at bay. For the first time in American history our enemies have breached the walls and are free to drink from the waters of the mighty Mississippi. They are bringing the “war against Christianity” to us.
Sadly, we are so ignorant about the “religion of peace” which is the incubator of those who perpetrate terror. If Islam is so peaceful why are so many folks afraid to speak out against it? Could it be that they are afraid of retribution from those who take umbrage at any honest discussion of this “peaceful religion?” Let me ask you a very simple question. It will expose what you really believe in your heart. Would you be afraid to go to a Mosque and confront those who promote terrorism? Would a Muslim fear for his life by visiting the local Methodist Church?
My friend Bill once described Christianity and Islam to me this way: The closer you get to Jesus the more peaceful you get, while the closer you get to Mohammed the more violent you become.
Here is my point. Our valiant soldiers in the sands of the Middle East are not fighting for America, or to spread democracy. They are fighting and dying to establish Islam. That’s right, Christian-American boys are dying to secure an Islamic culture.
Hard to swallow, isn’t it? We have bought the political propaganda. They tell us that our boys are dying to “spread democracy,” but were you aware that democracy is incompatible with the religion of Islam? That’s right. Islam and democracy cannot co-exist. Democracy is a system of government….so is Islam. In the Islamic system the Church IS the State. Most Islamic nations are a theocracy. A Theocracy is where the religious leaders are in control of the government.
In Iran, Amadinejad is the secular head, but the Mullahs are the judges and the Koran is the law. Democracy and theocracy are incompatible. Consider the following:
Modern day cleric, Sayyid Qutb said, "It is Allah and not man who rules. Allah is the source of all authority, including legitimate political authority. Virtue, not freedom, is the highest value. Therefore, Allah's law, not man's, should govern the society."
Islamic law is based on the Qur'an and the Sunnah, which are set and fixed. There is no need for addition or correction. Neither is there any room for the law of fallible man (particularly non-Muslims). Nor should it take the place of Allah's perfect law, which tells a man everything he needs to know about daily life (down to which hand he should "hold it in" while urinating).
The law of one man, one vote is heretical to Islam. The testimony of a Muslim woman is worth only half that of a man. Jews and Christians are never to have equal standing with Muslims under the law (and certainly never in a position of authority over Muslims), and atheists are to be killed outright.
Bukhari (89:251) - Allah's Apostle said, "Whoever obeys me, obeys Allah, and whoever disobeys me, disobeys Allah, and whoever obeys the ruler I appoint, obeys me, and whoever disobeys him, disobeys me." The ruler referred to here is the Caliph, who is appointed by Allah, not by popular election. Democratic rule has no legitimacy against the will of the Caliph who, as we see by chain of reference, has the authority of Allah.
Look folks, freedom of religion is a Christian ideal. Although not specifically stated in our Constitution, the First Amendment piggy-backs upon the Jeffersonian statement that our rights are “endowed by our Creator.” It is the respect for the rights of the individual that is so critical to a democracy. Islam believes in no such rights. Only in a Christian nation is true freedom possible.
Perhaps we should ask ourselves what “victory” in Afghanistan would look like. Well, let’s look at Iraq. Here is the proposed Constitution of Iraq after an American “victory.” Article 2 states “First: Islam is the official religion of the State and it is a fundamental source of legislation: No law that contradicts the established provisions of Islam may be established. You need read no further because every other provision yields to the first. “No law that contradicts the established provisions of Islam may be established…
Iraq will be an Islamic democracy, which is an oxymoron. Democratic government is illegal in Islam. How many Christian American boys died to establish an Islamic government in Iraq?
Now we are told that 40,000 additional troops are needed for the “war on terror” in Afghanistan. There is no freedom of religion in Afghanistan, no rights of the individual, no rights for women, and Islam is the establish religion. The President must be a Muslim. Peace in Afghanistan will result in the continued establishment of an Islamic Republic ruled by a nation of Islamic Clerics (Judges). In Muslim majority nations, such as Saudi Arabia, non-Muslims are regarded as Dhimmis, second-class people whose testimony in court does not count as much as that of a Muslim and who must pay extra taxes. Forget equal treatment under the law, and don’t even ask how they treat Dhimmi women.
Islam teaches that nations are in one of two major categories - dar-al Harb (house of war) and dar-al-Islam (Muslim rule). Any nation that is not Muslim is therefore, by definition, at war with Islam. Muslims cannot be expected to maintain loyalty to a nation that is at war with their religion. Radical Islam is at war with America and terror is the technique they use.
When was the last time you heard a “moderate” Muslim speak out against the terrorist activities of those who have “hijacked” this “peaceful” religion? It won’t happen because the very word Islam means submission. Sooner or later Allah takes over.
Secularism has anesthetized America by teaching that all religions and cultures are equal. They are not. Our enemies are using the Constitution as a weapon. The skeletal system of the American culture is Christianity…not diversity, not tolerance, not multi-culturalism…
Isn’t it ironic that our boys would be dying to establish Islam as the religion in the Middle East while, at the same time, those who ride on their shoulders deny the Christian faith on which THIS nation was built.
Soon and very soon Christians will realize what our Muslim friends already know; that this war is a religious war and our Christian boys are dying to establish Islam. PLEASE WATCH THESE VIDEOS.
