9-11 for 2014

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

Will we even recognize a 9-11 attack for 2014?

This is the day that Al-Qaida celebrates the taking down of the twin towers in New York, NY. It is the day they choose to remind everyone that they are a force to be reckoned with. There have been attacks on almost every 9-11 since then… or perhaps there were attacks every year but the media and politicos downplayed the event.

Why would they downplay the event? Because it is not politically expedient to show how ineffective their fight against terrorism truly is. Case in point… Libya 2012.

President Obama informs the nations of the world that Osama Bin-Laden has been killed. Not only him but the entire Al-Qaida structure has been weakened to the point of second rate threat. Then on 9-11 of 2012, the great anniversary of the US tragedy, an Al-Qaida affiliate in Libya launches a late night attack that went into the wee hours of the morning of the twelfth. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three others were killed. Many more wounded. Who did the state department blame? Regular Muslims protesting a movie spoof on the life of Mohammed. They kept up that lie until it fell apart because of political pressure after a few days.

During this whole episode, which continues to this day, with hearings and testimony a-plenty being given, I have never seen anything on the news that said this was a planned 9-11 attack. There have been a few mentions over time. The blog-o-sphere has plenty to say. Yet most still bury their collective head in the sand and refuse to name the true culprit. Hadith style Islam… not the one of the Qu-ran, but the tribal teachings attached to the prophet’s words… the sayings.

If a person wants to follow the teachings of the prophet as found in the Qu-ran… then I will fight for their right to fight their own personal/spiritual Jihad. When it crosses over to the establishing of an Islamic Caliphate State (based on the Hadith) by imposing its will against all others… that is the struggle I will stand against and name a heresy.

Through the actions of ISIS or ISIL, to borrow a biblical phrase, the name of the prophet “is blasphemed among the gentiles.” Yet this struggle belongs more in the hands of other Muslims. They need to stand up against those who would pervert the words of the prophet found in the Qu-ran. If they don’t stand up and make a clear distinction between them and ISIS and their like… they will be tarred with the same brush that is used on ISIS and they will suffer not only at the hands of the “unbelievers” and “the people of the book” but will suffer at the hands of their very own people. Muslims, please unit and save the dignity of the prophet and his words found in the Qu-ran from the abusers out for political Jihad in the world.

As a Christian I would rather have you believe in Jesus the Son of God. But that is your choice and I will defend your right to choose who you will follow. And I hope that you would defend my right to choose as well.

God bless the peacemakers.

A Hate Link… Really?

Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

A friend of mine recently sent this link to me:

One Brit’s opinion about Radical Islam

I’ve heard of the flack this friend of mine got from some people because she sent this link to a few people. Intrigued I clicked on the link so I could have first hand info on what this guy said. Six minutes of some Brit (Aussie?) giving his opinion on the problems with Islam. And what did I think? … very mild dialogue. People got upset over what this guy said? With what is happening in the world today as a result of a renewed flame of Islamic conservatism this guy’s monologue was tame. Warnings (fact based warnings) need to be shouted from the roof-tops.

I’ve read an English version of the Koran. It has its errors and prejudices (my opinion). The real problem with Islam is not the Koran but with the “hadith” (I hope I spelled that correctly). These are all the sayings attributed to Mohammed. This is where true hatred and prejudice can be found. It alone twists the Koran into an unrecognizable mass. The venom we think is in the Koran is there in the hadith. I have read only small portions of the hadith, enough to know, that they speak a different language. The protections in the Koran (for Jews and Christians) are stripped away in the hadith.

This is nothing new. The extra writings of later writers bring disrepute to the original message. Don’t get me wrong… the Koran has errors in it and should be placed under the blanket of “a different gospel” to be considered “anathema” by bible believing Christians. Yet what the conservative Islamist (radical) believes is not the pure Koran but that hybrid created by others to suit their own ends at the time.

They are a danger and need to be exposed. That is what the fellow in England has done. A rather mild expose at that. Guess those who are complaining are too thin skinned or too PC to see the threat. Of course many Jews in 1930’s Europe couldn’t or wouldn’t believe the warnings that some people made during their time.

In the end I do not believe that it will end well. The radical(?) Islamists will cause more pain and death. Some of the people of those countries will respond (over-respond) and isolate, jail, deport, beat and kill in response. Another Godless right wing will arise and a “kristallnacht” aimed at Muslims and/or Jews will occur. Perhaps into this mix the long awaited Antichrist will step in and bring that false peace we know is coming.

You can’t get any more PC than that!

ps: I believe that all Jews, Christians, Muslims and all others need to be protected from the excesses of radicals from any viewpoint, religious or secular. The free exercise of religion is a hallmark of the west. A person needs to be free to choose who they follow based on knowledge and revelation. Those who would deny this freedom are the true enemy of all faiths and peoples.
