There were many varied things said and promises made during President Obama’s recent address delivered to the joint session of congress. But it was what wasn’t said that spoke the loudest and should awaken America. The words “War on Terror” were not to be heard during this lengthy address. To insure that Muslims are not offended it is now politically correct to avoid the use of such allegedly incendiary words.
Let’s make sure that we don’t forget who the self proclaimed enemy is. It begins with a religion that surfaced 600 years after the advent of Christianity and thousands of years after the birth of Judaism. The religion of Islam, which began with a self proclaimed prophet, has escalated into an international movement with the intent of ruling the world under the guise of serving “God.”
It should also be remembered that the God of Judaism and Christianity is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The God of Islam, called Allah, is the God of Abraham and Ishmael. They are absolutely not one in the same. So when a Muslim uses the term “God” he is not referring to the God of the Bible, he is referring to Allah of the Koran. The description in the Koran of the Muslim Mahdi (Islam’s Messiah) clearly resembles the description of the Biblical Anti-Christ.
And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am Christ,’ and will deceive many…” Matthew 24:3-5
We cannot be lulled into thinking that the enemy wants to make peace with us just because we have extended an olive branch to them. The enemy has their eyes on Israel, America, and the whole of western culture on two fronts, i.e. flagrant terrorism on the one hand and on a more subtle front there is what author Robert Spencer calls “Stealth Jihad.” This latter front progresses steadily as we abdicate our freedoms via apathy.
Let’s review some quotations directly from Islamic leaders and their literature to see how likely it is that Islam will make peace with Israel and America. From the Hezbollah charter:
“We see in Israel the vanguard of the United States in our Islamic world. It is the hated enemy that must be fought until the hated ones get what they deserve…We vigorously condemn all plans for negotiation with Israel…We oppose and reject…all other programs that include the recognition (even the implied recognition) of the Zionist entity…We recognize no treaty with it, no cease fire, and no peace agreements, whether separate or consolidated.”
The charter of Hamas is nearly identical with Hezbollah’s charter.
Following are several quotes from Al-Qaeda leadership:
“Yet with the destruction of the Twin Towers in New York, there occurred an even bigger destruction: that of the great American Dream and legend of Democracy.”
“These attacks took off the skin of the American wolf and they have been left standing in their filthy, naked reality. Thus the whole world awoke from its sleep and the Muslims realized the importance of the belief of loving and hating for the sake of Allah; the ties of brotherhood between the Muslims have become stronger, which is a very good sign and a great step towards the unity of Muslims and establishing the Righteous Islamic Khilafah insha-Allah.”
“Oh young people of Islam: Follow the orders of Almighty God and His messenger and kill those people. Death is better than living on this earth with the unbelievers amongst us, making a mockery of our religion and prophet… Fear God, try to please Him, and do not consult with anyone regarding the killing of those unbelievers.”
From the lips of Iran’s Ahmadinejad:
“The anger of Muslims may reach an explosion point soon. If such a day comes, they (Western governments) should know that the waves of the blast will not remain within the boundaries of our region and will engulf the corrupt powers that support this fake regime too.”
And from other Al-Qaeda literature:
“There will be continuing enmity until everyone believes in Allah. We will not meet them halfway and there will be no room for dialogue with them.”
“The religious scholars (Koran interpreters) have also permitted the killing of a hostage if he insists on withholding information from Muslims.”
(Didn’t President Obama recently get a standing ovation when he announced that “The United States of America doesn’t torture prisoners?”)
According to the Bible, things are not going to get progressively better. It is not the time to be complacent or to believe a lie. Negotiated peace in the Middle East is but a fleeting fantasy.
For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman… I Thessalonians 5:3
