Palestinians mourn the life of a seventeen year old martyr who attacked a security guard with a screwdriver at the Israeli embassy in Jordan. This has inflamed Muslims in the Middle East towards committing even more atrocious acts of hatred and violence against the Jews. Or has it?!
First of all, are these Muslims actually mourning the death of a teenager whom they encouraged to kill Jews, whom they told to give up his life to become a martyr for Allah and received 72 virgins? Does this actually sound like a people, a religion which actually cares about life?
Second, these Palestinians are blaming a security guard at a foreign embassy who was attacked by a crazy man for defending his own life! How could anyone in their right mind blame someone for defending their life?
Third, has this really inflamed the Muslims to retaliate against the Jews? Seems to me that this has been going on for decades now. The Palestinians have been chanting death to Israel and death to the Jews ever since the rebirth of Israel in 1948, and I would argue long before that! Not only have they been threatening to annihilate Israel and the Jews, but they have been acting it out with murderous attacks, even training their very young children to commit these crimes of hatred and violence.
This is where the rubber meets the road, where right is being turned into wrong and wrong into right! We are told in scripture to watch for such things as this, and we see it right before our very eyes!
Jordan has been an ally of Israel, now it seems that Jordan is taking a turn for the worse! Condemning Israel for killing Islamic terrorists on the Temple Mount, Muslims who took the life of two Israeli policemen. While the Temple Mount has been under the control of Jordan, it seems as though this maybe changing and now under the control of Israel itself!
A person must be blind not to see what is happening here, blind to the fact that the Muslims want to kill all Jews, just as Hitler did in World War II, and in fact even more! He or she must be so brainwashed into believing that Islam is a religion of peace, and that they want nothing more than to practice their religion without any opposition.
One must know just what their holy book the Quran says, to kill Christians and Jews where you find them, to cut off their heads, to make holy war, Jihad! This not only pertains to Christians and Jews, but everyone not submitting to Allah, atheists, Hindus, Buddhists, Wiccans, homosexuals, ect.
Here are just a few verses from the Quran substantiating what I have said:
Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them” No reasonable person would interpret this to mean a spiritual struggle. The targets of violence are “those who disbelieve” – further defined in the next verse (13) as “defy and disobey Allah.” Nothing is said about self-defense. In fact, the verses in sura 8 were narrated shortly after a battle provoked by Muhammad, who had been trying to attack a lightly-armed caravan to steal goods belonging to other people.
Quran (5:72-73) – They do blaspheme who say: “God is Christ the son of Mary.” But said Christ: “O Children of Israel! worship God, my Lord and your Lord.” Whoever joins other gods with God, – God will forbid him the garden, and the Fire will be his abode. There will for the wrongdoers be no one to help. They do blaspheme who say: God is one of three in a Trinity: for there is no god except One God. If they desist not from their word (of blasphemy), verily a grievous penalty will befall the blasphemers among them.
Quran (8:12-15) – Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): “I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instill terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them.” This because they contended against God and His Apostle: If any contend against God and His Apostle, God is strict in punishment. Thus (will it be said): “Taste ye then of the (punishment): for those who resist God, is the penalty of the Fire.” O ye who believe! when ye meet the Unbelievers in hostile array, never turn your backs to them.
Quran (9:29) – “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the last day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and his apostle nor acknowledge the religion of truth of the people of the Book (the Jews and the Christians) until they pay the Jizya [tax on non-Muslims] with willing submission and feel themselves subdued.”
Quran – (9:73) – O Prophet! strive hard [wage war] against the unbelievers and the Hypocrites, and be firm against them. Their abode is Hell, – an evil refuge indeed.
Quran – (9:123) – O ye who believe! fight the unbelievers who gird you about, and let them find firmness in you: and know that God is with those who fear Him.
Quran – (47:4) – Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks; At length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens. Thus (are ye commanded): but if it had been God’s Will, He could certainly have exacted retribution from them (Himself); but (He lets you fight) in order to test you, some with others. But those who are slain in the Way of God, – He will never let their deeds be lost.
Islamic World Leaders:
“In the Muslim community, the holy war is a religious duty, because of the universalism of the Muslim mission and the obligation to convert everybody to Islam either by persuasion or force. The other religious groups (Christianity and Judaism) did not have a universal mission, and the holy war was not a religious duty to them, save only for purposes of defense. (Ibn Khaldun, The Muqadimmah: Ail Introduction to History, Islamic historian, 1377 AD)
“Islam makes it incumbent on all adult males to prepare themselves for the conquest of countries so that the writ of Islam is obeyed in every country in the world.” Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, Iranian Shiite mullah)
They treat women as an inferior race, and to also beat them into submission!
Quran (2:228) – “and the men are a degree above them [women]“
Sahih Bukhari (6:301) – “[Muhammad] said, ‘Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?’ They replied in the affirmative. He said, ‘This is the deficiency in her intelligence.’“
Sahih Muslim (4:1039) – “A’isha said [to Muhammad]: ‘You have made us equal to the dogs and the asses’“ These are the words of Muhammad’s favorite wife, complaining of the role assigned to women under Islam.
Ishaq 734 – “As for Ali, he said, ‘Women are plentiful, and you can easily change one for another.'” Ali was raised as a son by Muhammad. He was also the 4th caliph. This comment was made in Muhammad’s presence without a word of rebuke from him.
Quran (4:34) – “Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great.” Contemporary translations sometimes water down the word ‘beat’, but it is the same one used in verse 8:12 and clearly means ‘to strike’.
Does this sound like a religion of peace?! Does it sound to you like these people want to make peace with those living in the world? This so-called religion of peace is dead set on forcing people into submission, killing those who do not believe, and making Jihad (holy war) against the unbelievers of Islam. Their end goal is to convert the whole world into Islam or under Islamic control and Sharia Law by force!
So take it as you will, feel sorrow and compassion for those killing others in the name of Allah, for those martyrs who have died taking the lives of innocent victims in order to overtake the world by force. Or you can support those who commit themselves to stopping this evil religion from taking the lives of innocent people around the world. I understand that none of us are innocent, that we have all sinned, but that is not the topic of discussion here nor is it the way that I mean for it to be taken.
This religion is led by demonic forces, and as such needs to fought by believers through prayer. We must pray for demonic bonds to be broken, for people under this demonic influence to see the light, to see the error of their ways, and to come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ!
I know that the good Lord is changing the hearts and the minds of many Muslims, that He is giving many of them visions and dreams of just who the only one and true God of the universe is, Jesus Christ. We must pray that He continues to do so, and we must pray for the safety and protection of those being persecuted by Islam! This includes other Muslims, for while there is still life, then there is still the hope of salvation!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
