The Jewish Problem…

There is a very strong narrative being stated repeatedly that the residents of Gaza are living in occupied territory. “Free Palestine” is the mantra heard around the world to give the impression that Israel is the aggressor and wants to dominate the region of Gaza. Many on the left have taken up the banner to fight for the “poor and oppressed people of Palestine.” Jihadists across the globe can be seen with signs calling for Israel to stop the killing of innocent women and children. Where are those that are willing to speak out against the real reason Israel is forced to act? Where are those with an intellect smart enough to see through the false accusations of Israel’s enemies?

No country would allow neighboring countries to bombard its cities and not respond with military action. Here is the reality. Hatred of the Jewish people is in the Qur’an. Muslims are instructed to not make friends with Jews or Christians, and that Jews descended from apes and pigs. In one Hadith Umar reported Mohammed as saying “You will fight against the Jews and you will kill them until even a stone would say: Come here, Muslim, there is a Jew hiding himself behind me; kill him.” Sahi Muslim Book 41, number 6981.

Islam mandates that humanity is separated into two groups, Muslims and kafirs. Jews, Christians, Pagans, Atheists, and polytheists are all kafirs. They are all to be invited to Islam. If they choose not to convert, they are given two options. They may choose to save their lives and live as dhimmis, that is, natives living in land that is ruled by God’s Law, Sharia Law. If neither of those options appeals to them, they are killed.

It is not just people that are divided under Islam; the world too is broken up into two types of land. Dar Al-Islam is “Land of Islam.” This is land that has been conquered by Islam. Dar Al-Harb is “Land of War.” This is land that needs to be conquered so Sharia Law can be implemented. Israel had been a land of Dar Al-Islam, but has reverted back to Dar Al-Harb and ultimately controlled by the Jews. This is a huge problem for the Islamists that want to eliminate the Jews and control the land of Israel once again.

Another false idea being spread is that Islam is a religion of peace; it is the radicals that have corrupted or hijacked the religion of Islam. But who are the radicals and what do they believe? The majority of groups listed on the United States FTO list (Foreign Terrorist Organizations) have similar goals. These groups have no common nationality. They are linked only by their devotion to the Islamic supremacist ideology, that is the re-establishment of the Islamic Caliphate and the implementation of Sharia Islamic Law.

What is Sharia Law? Sharia Law is Islamic Law based on the Qur’an and the Hadith. It spells out exactly how Muslims are supposed to act. It also spells out how Muslims are supposed to treat Jews and Christians. Some Muslim groups try to conceal what the true nature of Islam is. They contend that Jihad means to struggle; this is a “personal,” inner struggle they maintain.

According to Umdat al-Salik, Reliance of the Traveller, A book on Islamic law from the Shafi’I School, “Jihad means to war against non Muslims…signifying warfare to establish the religion.” The text goes on to claim that the scriptural basis for defining the term Jihad comes from the Qur’an.
1. “Fighting is prescribed for you” (Qur’an 2:216)
2. “Slay them wherever you find them” (Qur’an 4:89)
3. “Fight the idolators utterly “ (Qur’an 9:36)

“I have been commanded to fight people until they testify there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.” In addition, according to Islamic Law, apostates are killed and there is no indemnity for killing an apostate.

If one considers the attack by Al-Shabaab at the Westgate Mall in Nairobi in light of dictates of Sharia Law, some of the mystery fades away when we hear that they were quizzing the shoppers to see if they knew the name of Muhammad’s mother. The “terrorists” were simply separating the Muslims from the Kafirs. They were warring against the unbelievers.

If you think the “radicals” are acting crazy now, just wait until you hear what Sharia Law says the Caliph will do. Once again, according to Umdat al-Salik, the objectives of jihad are spelled out for us. “The Caliph makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invite them into the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax…the war continues until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax.”

For the sake of Israel, for the sake of America, for the sake of the world, it’s high time we identify the enemy. We need to unite the free world against the threat of Islamic supremacy and Sharia Law. We have only ourselves to blame if we choose not to fight for the freedoms we enjoy.

WHY I BELIEVE THE BIBLE, AND WHY YOU SHOULD TOO

Reason number 10

Have you ever considered how Christianity could have possibly grown into the world’s largest religion given the extraordinary circumstances surrounding the life and death of Jesus? How could Christianity have such exponential growth in the first century unless it is true? Granted, Islam and Hinduism have also grown to be quite large, but the growth of Christianity is truly without comparison.

The Bible records how Jesus lived His life and began His ministry.  He typically had a small group of followers (Apostles) that he would teach. He frequently had conflicts with the Jewish leaders. They were threatened by his followers and teachings, which they felt contradicted their own Scriptures, and His growing popularity. He was knowledgeable about the Scriptures and He had a keen understanding of His role.

The Bible records how Jesus spent time with sinners, forgave their sin, and met their physical needs. He healed people and, on at least two occasions, fed several thousand people with only a couple of fish and loaves of bread. Several days before He was arrested He was hailed as King as He rode into Jerusalem on a donkey.

The religious leaders hated Jesus. They had Him arrested and brought before the Roman leader Pontius Pilate. Even one of His Apostles denied knowing Him when one of the people identified him as an associate of Jesus. Pilate found no fault in Him, but in an effort to appease the Jews He offered them the chance to have Jesus released. The people chose to have another prisoner released and have Jesus executed by crucifixion. He went from being hailed as the King just a few days before to being arrested and given a sentence of death, even though Pilate found no fault in Him.

Jesus was executed by crucifixion. His followers were disillusioned. The message of Jesus looked like it would die along with the rebel leader. But that is NOT what happened. The Bible records Jesus resurrection on the third day. Jesus appeared to His Apostles and others for a period of forty days. It is estimated that there were over five hundred people that saw Jesus following His resurrection. The reality of so many witnesses could explain why Christianity spread so quickly.

Think about this for a minute. If Jesus did not rise again and His message was buried in the tomb with Him, then who would be willing to carry out the message of a lie? What would be their motivation? Would there be enough of them willing to carry out this false message? I believe the answer to this is NO. Not only were there many witness to Jesus after His resurrection, eleven of Jesus’s twelve Apostles were martyred for their faith. Would all of these men be willing to die for a lie? Would you be willing to die for a lie?

I know what you are thinking. Islamists die for a lie all the time. In fact, Islam teaches that the only way a Muslim can be assured of going to heaven is by dying for Allah during Jihad. Muslims are deceived and desperate to be assured of salvation. This is a much different scenario than what the first century Christians experienced. They saw the resurrected Christ and were willing to die in the process of sharing His message of love, hope, and redemption. The explosion of Christianity in the Middle East can only be explained by the fact that so many people saw Jesus after His resurrection, and His followers were empowered by the truth of His message that they were willing to die for their faith.

Over half the people in the world believe that Abraham is father of their religion. The Jews missed the Messiah when he came, and the Muslims believed a different Gospel. There is no comparison between the Koran, Hadith, and Sira and the Bible. There is no comparison between Muhammad and Jesus. There is no comparison between Yahweh and allah. This is why I BELIEVE THE BIBLE, AND YOU SHOULD TOO.
