The following is a quote from an article entitled, “Is Obama’s Life at Risk?” authored by a very courageous individual by the name of Amil Imani. I would highly recommend that you read the entire article.

“You may protest that you are free to choose your religion and that you have chosen to be Christian. Nothing doing! You are stamped as Muslim at conception because your father was Muslim. Further, you have been doubly-stamped by your middle name Hussein. Muslims name their sons Hussein in honor of one of Islam’s most revered saints. Hence, the Muslims want what is theirs and you either repent and return to the fold or prepare yourself for the ultimate punishment: Death.”

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim and until he produces a Christian Baptism Certificate I will continue to believe so. In the post 9/11 world, anyone running for the Office of President of the United States of America who has even a hint of Islam in their background and is now proclaiming to be a Christian, should be doing so loudly, from the rooftop, and with a Certificate of Baptism in hand.

Why has he not taken action to stop the lingering doubt? Why is there so much sensitivity over the use of his middle name? How is it that a man who wants to be the Commander in Chief of our Armed Forces has allowed himself to be photographed showing total disrespect for the American flag, a flag that so many of our soldiers have given their lives for?

The Islamic world considers him to be a Muslim and so do I.

 I have to admit that I first read this quote in Mark Steyn’s awesome book “America Alone,” but you can find it on the Little Green Footballs website as well. It sums up the Islamic mindset very well. 

Islam is not only a religion, it is a complete way of life.  Islam guides Muslims from birth to grave. The Quran and prophet Muhammad’s words and practical application of Quran in life cannot be changed.Islam is a guide for humanity, for all times, until the day of judgment.  It is forbidden in Islam to convert to any other religion.  The penalty is death. There is no disagreement about itIslam is being embraced by people of other faiths all the time.  They should know they can embrace Islam, but cannot get out.  This rule is not made by Muslims; it is the supreme law of God.  Please do not ask us Muslims to pick some rules and disregard other rules.  Muslims are supposed to embrace Islam in its totality.     – Nazra Quraishi, Kindergarten Teacher, in The Lansing State Journal (Michigan) July 5, 2006. 

Whoa! How intense is that? Well it’s only intense to me inasmuch as I still have my western thinking cowboy hat on. Know what? For several hundred thousand, this is not “intense,” this is just the simple truth of Islam. Oh, there are moderate Muslims out there, “Muslims” are people; individuals, and they vary in their devotion as much as anyone. But “Islam” is an ideology; and there is no variance with Islam. 

My own insight? This is another reason most “moderate” Muslims are pretty laissez-faire about terrorism, even what happens in their residential country of choice (US too): since all of the earth is “under Allah,” then there is a fatalistic view that it is just part of the process of Allah bringing all under submission. It is supposed to happen. It is the natural order of Allah. If the infidel was meant to submit or die, then they will submit or die, it is Allah’s way. Who are they to get in the way of what Allah is doing? So the devout Muslim thinking goes, “If an Islamic terrorist blows up a ferry, a bus, a sports arena or a tall building and kills a few hundred (or on 9/11, a few thousand), then that is probably okay, because those who are Muslims in the explosion will enter paradise because of their involvement as a martyr in this (“defensive”) war, and all others have just learned the will of Allah, either that they will submit or they will die.” Those who feel deep sympathy for the “innocents” involved are not deep into their Koran. 

There is no “tolerance” in Islam, infidel. No matter how tolerant you are. You can be the most sympathetic to the plight of Muslims everywhere, and if you are not dar al-Islam (in the house of Islam) then you are dar al-Harb (house or war). If you love your ability to happily embrace everything, here’s a clue: all politically correct people live in dar al-Harb. Heh heh. There’s no PC in Islam.

Well, I digress. The most powerful part of this article is not my words, but the words of Nazra Quraishi above. Read them all again, until the “intense” words become “normal” understanding in your brain. They are totally normal to those fully committed to Islam.

There are moderate Muslims, but there is no moderate Islam.

If the title offends you, it should! It is a direct quote from the addendum of “The Little Green Book-Sayings of the Ayatollah Khomeini” (Jimmie Carter’s pal). If you haven’t read it yet you can find it here.
The man was certainly obsessive-compulsive when it comes to certain bodily functions. I think his mommy spanked him too hard during potty training. You know what I like the most about him–HE’S DEAD!

My friend Amil, who knows what it means to live under Islam in Iran sent me this email: “The David Horowitz Freedom Center announced that it will distribute a Declaration Against Genocide and ask individuals and groups, particularly those on American college campuses, to sign it. The Declaration notes that the Sudanese and other Africans have been victims of a slow motion genocide, and that Islamascists in the Middle East are preparing a new genocide against the Jews and can be found here:  Terrorism Awareness Petition.
Please sign the petition!
Declaration Against Genocide

Whereas genocide – the murder, or plan to murder, an entire people – is a crime against all humanity;

Whereas genocide is a crime that has metastasized in the modern era, leading to the murders of millions of Armenians, Cambodians, Tutsis, Sudanese, Bosnian Muslims and others;

Whereas the largest and most devastating genocide on record is the Holocaust of European Jews;

Whereas a new genocide of the Jews is being called for by Islamic leaders in the Middle East;

Whereas global forces are being mobilized by the Iranian regime to eliminate the Jewish state;

Whereas the genocide of the Jews is called for in texts understood by some Muslims as authoritative and echoes through sermons in some mosques today, and is proclaimed by certain leaders of the Islamic religion;

Whereas Catholicism and other Christian denominations have condemned the Holocaust and repudiated anti-Jewish pronouncements that have stained their religious past;

We call on all Student Governments and campus Muslim groups to:

Condemn and repudiate the Hadith which reads: “The prophet, prayer and peace be upon him, said: The time [of judgment] will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews and kill them; until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!” Sahih Muslim book 41, no. 6985
Condemn and repudiate the Hamas Charter which says: “Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it”
Condemn Ahmadinejad who has said “The accomplishment of a world without America and Israel is both possible and feasible.”
Condemn Hezbollah and its leader Hassan Nasrallah who has said:
“The Jews are a cancer which is liable to spread again at any moment.”

“There is no solution to the conflict except with the disappearance of Israel.”

“If they all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide.”

Affirm:
The right of all people to live in freedom and dignity
The freedom of the individual conscience: to change religions or have no religion at all
The equal dignity of women and men
The right of all people to live free from violence, intimidation, and coercion
We call upon all campus political, cultural, ethnic and religious groups to stand with us in opposing all forms of religious supremacism, violence and intimidation.

World War Three: the Global Jihad, is being fought from two directions

 The first direction is defensive. And this stance is needed to win.

It is necessary to combat the Jihad movement “over there,” wherever “there” is. It’s a nasty, dreadful, hideous job. And the American public – saturated with the mindset of sitcom-quick answers – is anxious to channel-flip away from Iraq. Muslims are in it for the long haul, and recent history tells them that all that is necessary to win it to keep the (relatively) small blows comin’; a bomb a day sends the US away. Currently we lack the will to defeat evil, and some of it is we don’t know how. I wonder if “the greatest generation” that brought victory in WWII would have had the support from home to beat Hitler if they had the internet and 500 channels of cable. At the time, the Allied military (the good guys) accounted for only 25% of the deaths in WWII. Allied civilians accounted for fifty eight percent; That’s over 41 million people, before the wars’ end. For a long time, peace-loving decent people let Hitler and Hirohito stomp their bloody boots everywhere they wanted (and we’re doing that now). Overwhelming civilian deaths is what it had to come to for good people to do something. More than one hundred times as many US soldiers died in WWII than have died in Iraq (both times). Yet 70 years ago we found the courage as a nation to join with other nations to beat two evil monsters.

We have a new evil monster: Islamic Jihad. And this monster is tougher, and more sinister. Tougher, because it’s not contained in neat little geographic areas. Like a cancer: it has no boundaries, and can quietly metastasize deadly tumors anywhere it chooses in our un-immunized world. The number one Saudi export is not oil; it is radical Wahhabi Islam taught in Mosques in the US and worldwide, 90% funded by the Saudis. In the name of tolerance of germs everywhere, we allow it to infect us. Despite the fever it produces, it warms us, because we can be smug about the diversity of our thinking. That kind of enlightenment is killing us. If a christian Scientist says “no” to life saving drugs and willingly dies because of it, that’s one thing. But the survival of our nation, as well as the survival of God-given human dignity is at stake. The cancer of Islam loves death; and hopefully we still have a flicker of “love or life.” We need name the disease, surgically remove it, and apply chemo to whatever’s left, so that we might live.

Islamo-fascism is more sinister because the jihad movement is not based on a political goal or an economic grievance, or even against one group of people. For Muslims it is an all-encompassing way of life. Islam is the way Muslims think about politics, social interaction, and personal behavior, and everything must conform. You can’t point out it’s failures (like communism) and let the rest stand. It is based on strict adherence to Islamic beliefs in the Koran; More correctly, the eradication of all that is not Islam, including those within Islam that are not Islamic enough. In that respect, no amount of chemo will inoculate us; we will always have to get booster shots. From Spain to Indonesia, from Turkey to Sudan, they’re setting up shop, and they’ve nearly got the former area from the “Golden Age of Islam” reconquered. With immigration and extraordinary birth rates, they are moving in and taking over. They are a large percentage in France, Great Britain, and other formerly great countries that are daily giving in to the cancer’s demands. Like WWII, are we going to wait until millions of kafir’s (unbelievers) are killed before we take action? Indeed, how will we take action when the enemy lives within us? They are not waiting to invade; they’re already in! How will we remove the cancer without destroying the body? The core idea from Jihadists that the world needs to hear is: non-believers (of Islam) will be subjugated or killed. Victory over the approaching horror requires a new strategy, a new way of fighting evil that we have never done before: to establish the supremacy of Christianity in the battle of ideas.

It is not enough to just sweep a house [or a nation] clean of evil (Matthew 12:43-45). You need to fill it with good – the Spirit of God needs to occupy the house – or it will just end up more corrupt and evil than before. So…

The second direction is offensive. And this stance is needed to win.

I believe that most Muslims would become Christians if they knew the truth about both Islam and Christianity. Christianity offers freedom. Islam is a dead end; the only assured way out is death in a holy war. That’s why they love it. The western mind cannot grasp this: they love death. Preschoolers in Arab countries sing songs about the joy of martyrdom, write poetry on the hatred of the west, and their parents are so proud. Many hope and pray Allah will allow their children to be martyred. This is not extreme; This is their norm. It’s been the standard teaching in all Islamic countries for decades. How are we going to deal with that?

It is not enough to pummel your enemies into submission in order to defeat them. In the case of Muslim radicals, they only go into temporary hiding. The good news is our enemy does think pummeling the infidel into submission is sufficient. No imam anywhere has made the case for why someone outside of Islam should choose Islam willingly; But of course they would be quick to say you must obey; Islam means “submit,” and that must come at any cost. Islam is a religion of external powers forcing compliance of religious rules amongst its adherents. For long(er) lasting peace, it is necessary to give people both a reason and a way to pursue a better way: Christianity.

Here is the reason.

If you say to a Muslim during Ramadan, “Happy Ramadan.” They will tell you that is not what it is all about. Ramadan is a time of contemplation, and consideration of how one can better submit to Allah and honor his dictates in the Koran. Allah is not to be “enjoyed,” he is to be “obeyed.” This is what a billion or so Muslims worldwide get to swallow. It is a fearful religion, and  except in the case of martyrdom, a guaranteed ticket to heaven – you must try to be good enough at obeying to be found faithful enough to enter into paradise. That is why they love martyrdom. That is why so many Muslims willingly take the heavy rules: since there is nothing inside that compels one to perform correctly, anything external might give one a better chance to get to heaven. Not to mention that anyone who questions the method will be chastised even more. I’m reminded of the saying, “The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves!” Families threaten death on their children so they might comply. So yes, beat me into submission; and I might make it to heaven.

In the battle of ideas, Islam has no footing, and Christianity has everything to stand for. This side of the battle will be won one-on-one. A Muslim who asks you questions will likely do it in secret (see the link above); and you’d better respect that secret to protect their life. Remember, God loves them.

Christianity is all about a relationship with Jesus Christ, who says, “I no longer call you servants … instead I have called you friends.” (John 15:15) I don’t know that any Muslim reading this can really comprehend that. “It was for freedom that Christ set us free. Stand firm then and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yolk of slavery.” (Galatians 5:1) I don’t know that any Muslim reading this can really comprehend that.  “For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons …” (Romans 8:15). I don’t know that any Muslim reading this can really comprehend that.  “Freedom.” “Friends.” “Sons.” Christianity is about revering God in a family-type relationship.

This offensive is critical in this war. Christianity offers life.

Here’s the Way.

Muslims get this: God loves you. He is not waiting for you to screw up so he can harm you. He loves you. He knows you’re tarnished, and you can’t make it into heaven without someone paying the price of that clean-up job. So He offered to do it Himself. He came down from heaven in the person of Jesus Christ, who was not tarnished in any way, and he offered to put all of your tarnish on Him (through His death and resurrection) if you will just say “yes” to this offer. There is no prescribed way to do it. You can say “yes” right now in a short heartfelt prayer. If you do that, the bible says you are “born again,” and nothing and no one will ever take that away from you. That – not martyrdom – is a blessed guaranteed ticket to heaven. God has paid it, you just take it, and then the Holy Spirit fills you with an ability to live the holy life as you listen to His promptings.

More good news, (former) Muslims: “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” (2 Corinthians 3:17). Do not use your liberty for selfishness (Galatians 5:13), but rather use the gifts God has given you to glorify Him by helping others. And where you don’t get it right, don’t worry, because, “there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” (Romans 8:1)

The God of Love is bigger than the god of fear.

February 14th has a special meaning to those of us here in Western Civilization. We practice love to a fault with candy, Valentines Day cards, flowers, poetry and puppy dogs. This is an ancient tradition that can be traced back to the Roman Emperor Claudius II. He decreed that single men made better soldiers so he forbid them to marry. Valentine, believing this to be unjust, continued to perform marriages in secret. When this was discovered, Claudius ordered him put to death. It is alleged that before his death he wrote a letter to his lover and signed it, “From your Valentine”. He became one of the most popular saints in the Middle Ages in England and France.

Now contrast this with Islamic Culture, where in Saudi Arabia, Valentines Day is against the law. We should check in Berkeley, California because they may have banned it there also.

Really speaks volumes about a culture doesn’t it!
