While most Americans consider the events on 9-11-2001 to be extremely tragic, most do not realize the significance of the September 11th date. Many considered the events of that day to be isolated acts of terror and that the date itself was randomly chosen. That date, however, has great meaning relative to Islam’s imperialist aspirations.
The formal crusades ended in the 13th century AD without totally achieving Christianity’s goals of stopping Islam’s fundamental objective of world domination. Islam continued its global encroachment during the next several hundred years as the Ottoman Turks set their sights on Western Europe. They considered the city of Vienna to be the key to accomplish this goal. The Turks had failed previously to take Vienna in 1529. They made a second attempt in 1683. The siege began in July 1683 with a Viennese garrison of only 11,000 soldiers and 5,000 citizen volunteers to ward off a Turkish army numbering 140,000. However, several European nations rallied to the cause and the Polish King Jan Sobieski arrived with a force of 40,000 Polish, German, and Austrian soldiers. With brilliant military tactics the European army overwhelmingly defeated the Ottoman Turks. The defeat was very humiliating for the much larger Turkish force. The European army arrived to save Vienna and Western Europe on September 11, 1683 and this became known as the date that Islamic imperialism was halted.
This historical event clearly defined a turning point in the Islamic agenda to overtake the world as the Ottoman Empire was resoundingly defeated.
Therefore, history indicates that the events of 9-11-2001 signaled the resurgence of the Islamic goal of prevailing over all other nations and ideologies. Osama bin laden was well aware of the historical significance of the humiliating defeat of the Ottoman Turks at Vienna on 9-11-1683 so on 9-11-2001 he made known his intention to resume the battle.
Islam’s present position and goals can be gleaned from recent remarks made by Muslim leaders. They consider Israel and all those who espouse western culture to be enemies of Islam. Consider the following quotes:
1) “The Zionist regime is counterfeit and illegitimate and cannot survive.
The big powers i.e., America, England, and their accomplices have
created this fraud regime and allowed it to commit all kind of crimes
to guarantee their interests.” Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, Iranian
2) “Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate
it; just as it obliterated others before it…There is no other solution for
the Palestinian problem other than jihad. All the initiatives and
international conferences are a waste of time and a futile game.” The
charter of Hamas
3) “The Jews can be described as grandsons of apes and pigs, and as Allah’s most cowardly and greedy creatures.” Hassan Nasrallah, leader of Hezbollah
However, the Bible records a substantially different account of the future for the nation of Israel and the Jewish people.
“Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them, and it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; I will establish them and multiply them, and I will set My sanctuary in their midst forevermore. My tabernacle also shall be with them; indeed I will be their God, and they shall be My people. The nations also will know that I, the LORD, sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forevermore.” Ezekiel 37:26-28
Thus says the LORD, who gives the sun for a light by day, the ordinances of the moon and the stars for a light by night, who disturbs the sea, and its waves roar…“If those ordinances depart from before Me, says the LORD, then the seed of Israel shall also cease from being a nation before Me forever…If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel…” Jeremiah 31:35-37
Thus the stage is being set for the final showdown between Islam’s Allah and the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. There is a vast difference between Islam’s goal and what the Bible has to say about the future of Israel. Both can’t be right.
