Pt. 2: Islam’s History
Gen. James Green
A FTER YEARS of studying Islam side-by-side with Christianity, I have found that there are those who do not reveal the (whole) truth about either–especially in this generation of Political Correctness. Lying and cheating are common on both sides as historians/authors/theologians make a stand for either Christianity or Islam. But true Islamic history is really hard to hide—it reveals an aggressive/oppressive stance toward non-Muslims for the most part. Yet we do find where Christians and Muslims have lived in peace with each other. But the FACT remains: their founder did not preach “peace,” but “war.” Most contemporary and ancient Islamic scholars note(d) this (see my booklet, “Offensive War to Spread Islam.” I listed dozens of scholars who are honest about their beliefs).
JUST WHAT are dhimmis? They are permanent, second-class kafir citizens in a country RULED by Islam—they pay a special tax, and their civil/legal rights are very limited. The only hope for a dhimmi is to CONVERT to Islam or FLEE (Islam gets rich off of taxes)! The Hadith has little about dhimmis, nevertheless, it is still an important political law (see Bukhari 4, 53, 388; 4, 53, 380); Umar II set the standards for dhimmis (see Al-Turtushi, Siraj Al-Muluk, p. 229, 30).
Bat Ye’or, Jewish Egyptian scholar, has thoroughly documented the history of dhimmitude in her book, “The Decline of Eastern Christianity under Islam” (1997). While, as I said, not all Muslims enforce the spirit of Islam, jizya (tax) had to be paid to reigning (militant) Muslims who compelled full allegiance in the ONGOING SPIRIT OF JIHAD! Ye’or documented the strong oppression, and even extermination (Islamic genocide) of whole Christian populations…and the slowly but surely disappearing Eastern Christian culture (cited in Michael Cromartie’s, “The Myth of Islamic Tolerance,” Sept. 1998).
Generally non-Muslims were not allowed free religious practices (Saudi Arabia is a current case-in-point). While Islamic writers/speakers try to play down the “intolerance,” proof of it flies in our face, even today! They point to the fact that Islam protects the “people of the Book,” i.e., Christians and Jews (they were spared death if the Muslims deemed it so), yet living as a slave was a punishment and humiliation, deprivation and insecurity.
REINHARD DHOZY wrote a book called, “Spanish Islam: A History of the Moslims in Spain” (2008, see p. 239 especially), in which he pointed out that Cordoba, Spain (a city of Muslim tolerance and city for Christian/Jewish philosophers) was not so tolerant as some believed. Dhozy (Islamophile historian, 1820-83) ACKNOWLEDGED HOW THE CHIEF CATHEDRAL WOULD BE TURNED INTO A MOSQUE.
We’re all familiar with Ibn Hazm (Muslim poet) who stirred up persecution against the Jews in Granada, Spain in AD 1066, resulting in 4,000 Jews being killed!
“The Cordoba House and the Myth of Cordoban Ecumenism” (Sept. 2, 2010), told by Andrew G. Bastom, relates that the Islamic CONQUEST and RULE of Spain was marked by regular MASSACRES, RAIDS, PERSECUTIONS, and HUMILIATIONS of the dhimmis. He claims that the “Golden Age of Islam,” in Spain, is a myth! Ye’or claims that tolerance there did not exist till the 20th century. The West had a lot to do with it (the West’s obfuscation of “intolerance”). Many other nations were dealt with in Europe.
Now look at the Islamic intolerance—former U.S. Prez had a lot to do with the latest pro-Islamic invasion of Europe (write for our materials proving this). In fact, it was the U.S., Saudi Arabia, and Israel that actually formed up ISIS, armed it and financed most of it. Prez. D. Trump has vowed to destroy ISIS!! [We’ll see about that one though!] I might add, America, as I write, has thousands of jihadists within the 50 states. OBAMA, THAT PSYCHO-SICKO LITERALLY BROUGHT IN TENS OF THOUSANDS OF MUSLIMS, WHILE ONLY ADMITTING SEVERAL DOZEN CHRISTIANS. So, when you hear of, or read about, all this great Islamic “tolerance,” it is lies! As a result of Europe, the USA, and other countries that are pro-Islam, a whole new mindset has been developed—even though the most brutal/blood carnage is global. Political Correctness has praised Islam and hated Christianity. We’re yet to see the END of all this pro-Islam propaganda!
Ibn Ishaq (d. 763) was Muhammad’s first authoritative biographer. He covers 75 percent of the prophet’s battles in 813 pages: murder, assassinations, rapes, plunders, and every kind of cruelty. Sex with slaves was permitted by Muhammad, along with female captives—in order to humiliate them, and to populate. This practice still is done as I write. ISIS performs every cruel act that is found in the Quran and Hadith. Where is the peace? There is hardly an ounce of support for this P.C. “inner struggle” (called jihad).
It Is Asked
DID OLD TESTAMENT war texts inspire the crusades? Did the Quranic/Hadith texts counter the “Christian” crusaders? First, the Crusades were NOT Christian; they were Roman Catholic, propagated by Popes.
Here are 5 questions put forth and answered by prof. Copan and Flannagan (ibid, p. 288):
1. The Crusades were a completely morally unjustified military campaign against peaceful Muslims initiated by the Church. True or false?
2. The Crusades were an attempt to gain riches for Christendom by plundering Muslim lands.
True or false?
3. The Crusades were an effort to gain Muslim conversions to Christianity by force. True or false?
4. Muslims held the Crusades against Christians since the Middle Ages. True or false?
5. The Crusades were inspired by Canaanite warfare texts in Deut. and Joshua. True or false?
They say FALSE! to all 5!!!
If one reads (former nun) Karen Armstrong’s rants, one will get the impression of TRUE! If one believed that Roman Catholicism is “Christian,” then they may see her point of view. Roman Catholicism has always been militant and bloody; Biblical Christianity has not. Period! Armstrong says, “Christianity had an inherent leaning toward violence” (“Holy war: The Crusades and Their Impact on Today’s World,” 2001, p. 4). Again, she believes the Roman Catholic Church was and is Christian. AT MOST, ROMAN CATHOLICISM IS A MIXTURE OF TRUTH AND LOTS OF ERROR.
This false criticism is not new. Many Enlightenment-era critics believed that Islam was merely a victim, and Christianity, the aggressor. Better do more research folks...it isn’t true.
Trail Of Destruction
ISLAMIC TOLERANCE? Did you know that during the first century of Islamic jihad, over 3,200 Churches were either destroyed or converted into mosques? During the Muslim invasion of Syria in AD 634, literally tens of thousands of Christians were massacred. If you need proof, I have it; Muslims went on the aggressive throughout the world leaving behind total destruction and death. It is said that the BLOODIEST story in history was the invasion of India. Rape and plunder followed the brutal murder rampage. It is said Shah Jahon had 5,000 concubines in his harem. Not satisfied with this, he indulged in incestuous sex with his daughter.
Despite the factual historical proof of all this, Muslims, and their public relations agents, and apologists, claim that Islam is a GREAT religion of learning and tolerance. HA! What a bucket of propaganda! To add insult to injury, they claim Islam is SUPERIOR to Christianity. Well, compare Muhammad to Jesus—see which founder is greater. Even the Quran speaks highly of Jesus, but not Muhammad. Read the following please:
* ‘’Muhammad was the prophet of war; Christ is the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6).
* Muhammad’s disciples killed for the faith; Christ’s disciples were killed for their faith (Acts 12:2; 2 Tim. 4:7).
* Muhammad promoted persecution against the “infidels”; Christ forgave and converted the chief persecutor (1 Tim. 1:13-15).
* Muhammad was the taker of life; Christ is the giver of life (John 10:27-28).
* Muhammad and his fellow warriors murdered thousands; Christ murdered none but saved many John (12:48).
* Muhammad’s method was COMPULSION; Christ’s aim was CONVERSION (Acts 3:19).
* Muhammad practiced FORCE: Christ preached FAITH (John 6:29, 35).
* Muhammad was a WARRIOR; Christ is a DELIVERER (Col. 1:13: 1 Thess. 1:10).
* Muhammad said to the masses, ‘’Convert or die!”: Christ said, “Believe and live!’‘ (John 6:47: 11:25-26).
* Muhammad was swift to shed blood; (read Rom. 3:15-17); Christ shed His own blood for the salvation of many (Eph. 1:7).
* Muhammad preached “Death to the infidels!”; Christ prayed “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do” (Luke 23:34).
* Muhammad declared a holy war (Jihad) against infidels; Christ achieved a holy victory on Calvary’s cross (Col. 2:14-15) and His followers share in that victory (John 16:33).
* Muhammad constrained people by conquest; Christ constrained people by love (2 Cor. 5:14).
* Modern terrorists derive their inspiration from Muhammad and carry out their despicable atrocities in the name of his god; Christians derive their inspiration from the One who said, “Blessed are the peacemakers” (Matt. 5:9).
* Modern day disciples of Muhammad respond to the terrorist attacks by cheering in the streets; modern day disciples of Christ are deeply grieved at past atrocities carried out by those who were “Christians” in name only (the Crusades, the Spanish Inquisition, etc.).
* Many Muslims are peaceful and peace-loving because they do not strictly follow the teachings of their founder; many Christians are peaceful and peace-loving because they do strictly follow the teachings of their Founder (Rom. 12:1 7-21). * Muhammad called upon his servants to fight; Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world; if My kingdom were of this world, then would My servants fight...but now is My kingdom not from here” (John 18:36).
* Muhammad ordered death to the Jews (see A. Guillaume, “The Life of Muhammad,” Oxford University Press, 1975, p. 369); Christ ordered that the Gospel be preached “to the Jew first” (Rom. 1:16).
* The Quran says, “Fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them” (Quran 9.5); Christ said, “Preach the Gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15).
* Muhammad’s mission was to conquer the world for Allah; Christ’s mission was to conquer sin’s penalty and power by substitutionary atonement (2 Cor. 5:21; 1 Pet. 3:18).
* Muhammad claimed that there was but one God, Allah; Christ claimed that He was God (John 10:30-31;John 8:58-59; John 5:18; John 14:9).*
MUHAMMAD’S TOMB: OCCUPIED!...
CHRIST’S TOMB: EMPTY!”
*Don’t ever let Muslims convince you that Muhammad took the place of Christ. Muhammad was a religious FRAUD! He took portions of our Holy Bible and made an unholy political/religious system of aggression from it.
The Bible says of the risen Christ: “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is (present tense), and which was (past), and which is to come (future), the Almighty” (Rev. 1:8). There is no record of Muhammad coming back. He is DEAD FOREVER!!!
THIS WORD is never found in the Bible, nor is it commanded in Christianity. On the other hand, Jihad is found in the Quran and is listed as the second greatest command by Muhammad.
The Crusades ENDED centuries ago, but Jihad is still very ACTIVE today! There have been millions, with a capital “M,” of people murdered throughout the past centuries by militant Muslims—all in the name of “Allah” (there were 1.5 million Armenians slaughtered in Turkey in 1915. They say 2016 was a year of great slaughter of peoples by ISIS).
The Old Testament Holy War was not to be replicated by New Testament Christians, yet Pope Urban II acted in response to a letter from Alexius Comnenus, Byzantium’s emperor (AD 1095), concerning the Muslims that were on a rampage. He, Comnenus, was requesting help. If you want to read that request, see Rodney Stark’s book, “God’s Battalions, 3" (2009) where he cites the letter. He complained of rape, torture, and murder of Christians [Catholics]. The Crusades were a RESPONSE to Islamic AGGRESSION, not an act of aggression as many claim. The Crusades were a defensive war.
The renowned historian Bat Ye’or’s book, “The Decline of Eastern Christianity under Islam,” pp. 89, 90 gives us a peek of what was happening in the years AD 1058, 1261 AND 1264.
I’m not defending Roman Catholicism, but realize that was the only religion representing “Christianity” in those dark centuries. We’re all too familiar with her bloody and dark past, but the Crusades were not about expansion, but about DEFENSE AGAINST THE MUSLIM EXPANSION.
THIS WAS also a response to the Islamic conquest of Edessa (Turkey in AD 1144).
THIS WAS a response to the Islamic conquest of Jerusalem and other lands east of there in AD 1187. A good source is “Inventing the Crusades” (2009), by T. F. Madden.
Augustine’s Just War
THIS “JUST WAR” has been used many times in the past. But, if we look at the situation in those days, Christians (not all were of the RCC) either fought for survival, or basically died/were enslaved. If we merely look at the situation without any “Christian” aspect, Muslims were attacking, destroying, and enslaving. Those who were attacked either fought for their lives/lands, or lost them.
In T.F. Madden’s, “Crusade Propaganda” (2001), he writes:
“THE CRUSADES WERE IN EVERY WAY A DEFENSIVE WAR. They were the West’s belated response to the Muslim conquest of fully two-thirds of the Christian world. While the Arabs were busy in the seventh through the tenth centuries winning an opulent and sophisticated empire, Europe was defending itself against outside invaders and then digging [itself] out from the mess they [those crusades] left behind. Only in the eleventh century were Europeans able to take much notice of the East. The event that led to the crusades was the Turkish conquest of most of Christian Asia Minor (modern Turkey). The Christian emperor in Constantinople, faced with the loss of half of his empire, appealed for help to the rude but energetic Europeans. He got it.
In any war/revolution/crusade, things done are not always moral or justified. Was the slaughter of 3,000 people in Jerusalem just/moral (AD 1099)?
We may not share their convictions, or agree with their methods, but we dare not blame them (Catholics) for the Crusades. They had a desire to fight for and defend the honor of Jesus the Lord, and defend themselves and others from the cruel jihad on the offensive. I believe Islam to be a plague upon all humanity.
There are those who are not Muslim, but hate Christianity so much that they side with their BLOODY religion [which is] against Christians. The first 5 centuries of Islam were an ongoing Crusade against non-Muslim nations. Prove me wrong if you can! IT IS ESTIMATED THAT 50% OF ALL CHRISTIANS IN THE WORLD WERE SLAUGHTERED BY THOSE BLOODTHIRSTY PSYCHOS. In reality, Islam is an ongoing CRUSADE against Christianity.
All this PC propaganda is a distortion of real history. The fictional (cry baby Muslim) “victim” lies are conveniently propagated by Christ-haters. All this ridiculous PCism will eventually bite the dust, then we’ll have to deal with the real (Bloody) Islam.
5 Centuries Later
AS I SAID, the Crusades came 5 centuries after Islamic Jihad. Where did they (Muslims) get their inspiration to go on such extreme crusades against the non-Muslims? Right out of their books—the Quran/Hadith.
Nowhere can we find the call/command/order to launch a Christian Crusade for conversion (—at the point of a sword, as Muslims do!) or conquest (theft of lands/spoils etc.). The Crusades were strictly defensive—to free others from Islamic domination, to take back what was rightfully theirs before the thieving Muslims invaded, and to restore religious freedom to the Holy Lands.
THIS POLITICALLY CORRECT Propaganda has grown into a mighty river that overflows its banks; it reflects a sheer hatred for Western civilization. All one has to do, as I have done, is go to the Islamic sources and see WHY Muslims hate all non-Muslims—their demented (false) prophet ordered eternal jihad!
A Western Scholar Writes:
“FOR ALMOST a thousand years...Europe was under constant threat from Islam. In the early centuries it was a double threat--not only of invasion and conquest, but also of conversion and assimilation. All but the easternmost provinces of the Islamic realm had been taken from Christian rulers, and the vast majority of the first Muslims west of Iran and Arabia were converts from Christianity. North Africa, Egypt, Syria, even Persian-ruled Iraq, had been Christian countries, in which CHRISTIANITY WAS OLDER AND MORE DEEPLY ROOTED THAN IN MOST OF EUROPE. Their loss was sorely felt and heightened the fear that a similar fate was in store for Europe” (Bernard Lewis, “Islam and the West,” 1993, p. 13).
A British Historian Writes:
“THE HISTORY of Islam has essentially been a history of conquest and reconquest. The7th-century “breakout” of Islam from Arabia was followed by the rapid conquest of North Africa, the invasion and virtual conquest of Spain, and a thrust into France that carried the crescent to the gates of Paris. It took half a millennium of reconquest to expel the Moslems from Western Europe. The Crusades, far from being an outrageous prototype of Western imperialism, as is taught in most of our schools, were a mere episode in a struggle that has lasted 1,400 years, and were one of the few occasions when Christians look the offensive to regain the ‘occupied territories’ of the Holy Land” (Paul Johnson, “Relentlessly and Thoroughly,” 2001, cited in Nat’l Review). Don’t let the word “offensive” fool you, he means “initiative.”
I THINK most have either seen or heard of Ridley Scott’s movie “Kingdom of Heaven.” Talk about disinformation and propaganda! He depicts the Crusades as a brutal offensive—by Christians/Crusaders to overrun those “victims”— the peace-loving Muslims who only wanted to defend themselves from their oppressors (see the PC movie for yourself, 20th Cent. Fox, 2005).
Did Scott get his inspiration from another Scott—Sir Walter Scott (who wrote the classic, “The Talisman,” 1825)? The accusation is the same. PCism would have us believe that the backlash of the Crusades=Islamic terrorism. Get a life stupid!
THERE HAVE BEEN (and still are) those who have abused Scripture. The Puritans were such a people—who believed they were preserving the Protestant Reformation (along the lines of John Calvin’s “Holy Commonwealth”). The “New Israel” people (as they called themselves when they got to the New World), took the “Manifest Destiny” idea very serious.
In the early 1980s I read, “The Light and The Glory” by Peter Marshall and David Manuel (1977 pub. by Power Books) in which they reemphasized the Manifest Destiny idea. Then in 1986, their “From Sea to Shining Sea” book came out—writing about God’s plan for America.
This “idea” sparked the literal slaughter of the Indians that lived on this land. I’m not saying that the Christians did the slaughter, but in the name of Christianity, it was mostly done. This is a black spot in America’s history. Many “Christians” looked upon the Indians as evil, “cursed seeds of Canaan,” which promoted a “holy war” against the Pequots in 1636-37 (see B. E. Johansen’s, “The Praeger Hand Book on Contemporary Issues in Native American Linguistics,” 2007, p. 123).
Other Christians were concerned for the salvation of the Red Man (Edwards/Brainerd especially). Actually, the Dartmouth College was established for this purpose.
My wife (half Sioux) and I have worked with Natives—black and red, in many countries. We have been working with Navajo, Apache, Ute, Zuni, Hopi, and many Pueblos for years now. We’ve led thousands to Christ, and SEEN HUNDREDS SUPERNATURALLY HEALED BY GOD’S SPIRIT—some were “hopeless” according to the medical establishment.
AGAIN, IT IS FALSE to believe that the Crusades caused Islamic Reprisals. Reverse this and we’ll have the truth. Those who play the Political Correctness game of BLAME! minimize the real cause: Islamic jihad for over 500 years. We DO NOT need to ask forgiveness from the Muslims, they need to repent of their BLOODLUST!
Now, because of PCism, America has a real Muslim problem. They are calling for Sharia law here in good ol “Christian” America. They don’t even care about the U.S. Constitution: Obama did not either! He brought in literally tens of thousands of Muslims in order to populate this land for Islamic RULE! This is true. Let’s hope prez D. Trump reverses this insanity.
We Might Ask…
HOW DID all those ‘once non-Muslim nations’ become Muslim? Do you think they asked the Muslim invaders to kill off the male population, rape their women and steal their land?
Saladin, The Merciful?
WHEN THE MUSLIM Saladin [the Great] captured the Crusaders at Hattin (July 4, AD 1187), this psycho ordered the MASS EXECUTION of ALL, ALL Christians: “they should be beheaded in accordance with Quran 47:4 ‘When you meet the unbelievers on the battlefield, strike their necks!’” This sura is current too.
It was reported by Saladin’s secretary Imud, “With him were a whole bond of scholars and Sufis and a certain number of devout men and aesthetics; each begged to be allowed to kill one of them (Christians) and drew their swords and rolled back their sleeves. Saladin, his face joyful, was sitting on his dois; the unbelievers showed black despair.”
Tell me, does this portray the “victim” lie?
THIS ISLAMIC PSYCHO ordered the slaughter of every Christian in Aleppo.
Mamluk Sulton Baybars
IN 1268, when psycho Baybars seized Antioch, he commanded ALL men slaughtered, women sold into slavery, the crosses in every Church destroyed, every Bible burned, the groves of Christians desecrated, and monks, priests, deacons to have their throats slit. The Church of St. Paul and the Cathedral of St. Peter were destroyed and the bodies burned therein. Now, WHO were the “VICTIMS”?
THIS BEAUTIFUL CITY was taken by the Islamic “victims,” oops!, I mean JIHADISTS, May 29, 1453, when the Muslims “slew everyone that they met in the streets: men, women and children, without discrimination.” So much for Muhammad’s “peaceful” religion!
Upon entering the Hagia Sophia, the Muslim psychos slaughtered thousands of worshippers without mercy. Without mercy? Yep! These were not combatants folks.
[Note: The Hagia Sophia (built by Justinian, with beautiful green columns [J. Vernon McGee]) still stands today in Salonica (Thessalonica in Bible times), the second largest city in Greece (Baker’s NTC, 1955). From an endnote in Flavius Josephus’ book, we can get more of a perspective on the word “hagia,” “Josephus himself, when he speaks of the two inner courts, calls them both hagia or holy places; but, so far as I remember, never gives that character of the court of the Gentiles (See B V, Ch. 9, Sect. 2).” This means that the CHURCH SANCTUARY Hagia Sophia was invaded by Muslims, and the believers were killed. If anyone cares for religious freedom, this is the antithesis of it! Does that sound like poor innocent little Muslims being attacked and destroyed by crusaders to you? M.T.W.]
SPAIN WAS UNDER Islamic rule for eight centuries. Most of Europe suffered the same fate. Do you think Muslims went door-to-door asking the residents to have a Quran study with them? NO! They went forth as a marauding, blood thirsty army to: murder, enslave, and steal all that did not belong to them.
It was because of the Crusades that Europe had some peace and security. Now Islamic hordes are flooding into Europe as refugees, becoming “victims” once more. You may want to order our DVDs about this—see for yourself if these Muslims are “victims” or secret Islamic warriors.
Not only did Europe receive Islamic invasion, Egypt, Turkey and most of the Middle East, Far East etc. did as well.
But Jihad Continues!
THE MIDDLE EAST was the birthplace of Christianity. Islam came from Saudi Arabia into the whole of Christian North Africa, into Spain, into France, within the first century after the death of Muhammad. His psycho armies SLAUGHTERED their way across some of the greatest Christian cities in the world: Alexandria, Carthage, Antioch and Constantinople. These Islamic hordes destroyed over 3,200 Christian Churches in just the first 100 years of (bloody) Islam.
How can anyone say, “Islam is a religion of peace?” BEFORE ISLAM, THESE CONQUERED NATIONS WERE MOSTLY CHRISTIAN. None of them went into Saudi Arabia with the intent of conversion at sword-point, nor with the intent to slaughter all males and enslave women and children. Where is the historical account of any of this?
Born For War!
ACCORDING TO MUHAMMAD, He was born for war!, hence, Islam became a warring political/religious machine. Islam’s Caliphs carried on in Muhammad’s absence.
Islamic jihad was (and is!) an act of HATE!!; Christianity was (and is!) an act of love. Muslims are not known for “love thy neighbors/enemies,” but Biblical Christianity is (Matt. 5:44). Jesus said, “Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13).
AFTER ONE STUDIES the Crusades (be they: Christian, Roman Catholic, Jewish, or merely pagan) one will see that the Crusaders saw themselves as redeemers—setting out to redeem nations that were captives of (bloody) Islam. The mindset of those who took part in all three, saw it as their task to defeat and defend those who had been, and were, terrorized by Muslims. The Medieval Crusaders did not set out to CONVERT Muslims, but to FREE the enslaved. While it may have been true of some of them to convert Muslims—and we do hope it was—the BIG picture was freedom and restoration.
Dr. Peter Hammond, a long time Christian missionary from South Africa, and long time friend of ACMTC, spoke out and said, “The Crusades were a battle against all odds with impossibly long lines of supply and cripplingly inadequate logistics. The chances of success for the first crusade were highly improbable. They had no leader, no chain of command, no supply lines and no detailed strategy” (“Slavery, Terrorism and Islam,” p. 188).
Well, Christianity—Biblical Christianity—has maintained its respect for women: Islam never has, and never will! Christianity fought to end slavery; Islam enslaves as I write! Christianity cares about ALL lost souls; Islam only cares for Muslims!
Turn The Other Cheek
WHAT? NOT MUSLIMS! The Bible teaches this. On the other hand, Romans 13 teaches that the state’s responsibility is to protect its citizens against evil doers, “… for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him (or them!) that doeth evil” (v. 4). When Islam poses a threat, as it does!, the state must take action. There are times when it is morally imperative to use whatever means—even violence—against those who represent violence and injustice.
Have we Christians forgotten about the imprecatory psalms (prayer curse!), which fly in the face of liberal PCism?
At times, it is demanded that the state use physical force against evil doers. Actually, using force when necessary IS LOVING ONE’S NEIGHBOR. I’m not referring to getting back at our personal enemies, but Islam—militant Islam—is an ENEMY of Christianity and ALL who are non-Muslims!
In the instances of assaults/attacks/terrorism, a military response may be the only appropriate way for them to be dealt with. But this should be done by the state, not Christians per se. I don’t endorse taking the law into our own hands, but I do believe a person has the right to protect him/herself from harm if the occasion arises. I have traveled the world and never carried a weapon. But, I feel that it was God who protected me.
ROMANS 13 definitely teaches two things:
1. God ordains the sword;
2. God uses human powers/authority.
God delegates “sword authority” through human governments. This is a real touchy point. We would like to see God execute His wrath upon His/our enemies without we people involved. This has happened, but He definitely uses human instruments as well.
Insult Or Violence?
I HAVE TWO DVD teachings on “The Solution to the Pollution is Bloody Revolution” (1-6) in which I deal with Jesus’ “Turn the other cheek” philosophy. Most take His words in Matt. 5:39, “But I say unto you, that ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also,” as an admonition to be passive. But this admonition to “turn the other cheek” is NOT the response to an act of violence, but rather, to a gross insult. I spend considerable time on the background of this text. Jesus is NOT speaking against the administration of proper justice towards those who are evil (see Rom. 13:1-4). WE’RE NOT TO REACT TO THE WRONGS DONE TOWARDS US IN A SPIRIT OF HATE, BUT IN A MUCH HIGHER SPIRIT. Jesus quotes, “Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth...” (see Ex. 21:24; Lev. 24:20 and Deut. 19:21; those deal with personal insults).
In Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount He prohibits returning insult for insult…break the cycle of exchanging insults. He does not ABSOLUTIZE loving one’s enemies (see Matt. 23 where Jesus rebukes the religious leaders hotly!).
Jesus said, “…If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why smitest thou Me?” (Jn. 18:23). In some cases, to forgive your enemies, repentance is needed by them. A good example of this is Lk. 17:3, “Take heed to yourselves: if thy brother trespass against thee, REBUKE him; and IF HE REPENT, forgive him.” Jesus here is dealing with a domestic offense, NOT A MURDEROUS ACT!
So, take all this into consideration concerning militant Islam. Be careful not to fall into error of passive sentimentality when GROSS injustice is perpetrated upon innocent peoples by jihadists. Most terrorist attacks are carried out upon people who are innocent; by this I mean that they have not offended their attackers, and are not combatants. Should we just sit by while jihadists plan other attacks, or while they preach a deceiving message from their books? I have been exposing their lies and deception for years and I believe I need to. Our phoney “forgiveness” and phoney “love” has not stopped their centuries of jihad! Sometimes force is needed. This is the state’s responsibility.
Romans 13 is not about love and forgiveness per se, but about punishing evil doers. Even force can be tempered.
Jesus was always RESISTING evil. Do we remember Jesus’ actions at the temple-cleansing escapade? Actually, Matt. 5:39 is better translated as not resisting “by evil means,” rather than “the evil or person.”
THERE ARE TIMES when the state may go against God (as we have witnessed for years here in the U.S.). When authorities require or demand, even by the Supreme Court, the violation of our conscience, we, “must obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29).
Romans 13 is about state officials whose roles have been ordained by God—to protect the innocent, which the state has FAILED to do for over 44 years with pre-born abortion flourishing. The state is to preserve the peace, but for years officials have allowed Muslims to flow into the U.S. unchecked. Now there are thousands of jihadists in these 50 states that have the potential of causing one Hell of a mess. We have militant GLBTQP terrorists that demand respect...or else!!
Old Testament War/
New Testament War
I HAVE TWO magazines on war in print. But for the sake of this subject, I want to say that there are Scriptures supporting war. Call it “Just War,” or whatever, but the Scriptures are there. We don’t have to convince you of the Old Testament war texts–such as Eccl. 3:8, a “time for war;” Proverbs 20:18, “Make war by wise guidance;” and 24:6, “For by wise guidance you will wage war, and in abundance of counselors there is victory and safety.”
But what about the New Testament? First, we know that there is Spiritual warfare (Eph. 6:10-17; 2 Cor. 10:3-6 etc.). Jesus Himself spoke of war (alluded to it) in Luke 14 when he taught on the cost of discipleship. He spoke of building a tower (lookout, in time of war) in v. 28, of a king going to war in v. 31, and conditions of peace in v. 32.
His most pointed speeches are found in Luke 21:20-24—the destruction of Jerusalem (v. 23= “great distress,” “wrath upon the people;” v. 24=”fall by the edge of the sword,” “Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles,” i.e., the Romans in AD 70).
In Luke 19:11-27—the parable of the pounds, Jesus puts forth this chilling prediction: “But those mine enemies (the rebellious Jews themselves), which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.” This took place in AD 70. The risen Christ was there at that event in Spirit.
I’m not trying to prove that New Testament Christians are to go to WAR, but merely showing that WAR was common then, just as it is today. Some wars are “just” (or Holy Wars), and some are not. My point is that the New Testament tells us that it is the state, not the Church, that God has ordained to PROTECT THE PUBLIC, and punish the evil doers—this certainly would include Islam!
WE’VE HAD ENOUGH of this “Islam is peaceful” BULL! Go to their Hadith (some have up to 9 volumes). The Hadith spells out the details of JIHAD; it is, as one critic states, “a precise tactical manual for jihad.”
The Hadith summarizes all the key elements of jihad (5 in all, but the 4th is purely religious). Let’s look at these keys. To start, we will use the Al Bukhari Vol 1, Bk 7, (1.)331 where Muhammad (or Mohammed, used any way you wish) spoke: “I have been given 5 things which were not given to anyone else before me:
1. Allah made me victorious by awe, by his frightening My enemies for a distance of one month’s journey;
2. The earth has been made for me and my followers, a place for praying and a place to perform rituals; therefore, anyone of my followers can pray wherever the time of a prayer is due (along with comment we find in other places that the whole world belongs to Islam, so jihad is used to remove trespassers!);
3. The spoils of war has been made lawful for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me;
4. I have been given the right of intercession on the Day of Resurrection;
5. Every prophet used to be sent to his nation only, but I have been sent to all mankind.”
In this last one, Muhammad claims to be the prophet to ALL nations; this idea I have completely destroyed in one of my other articles. Jesus, not Muhammad, was the ONLY Prophet sent to ALL nations.
THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST HAD ALREADY GONE TO THE WHOLE WORLD BEFORE ISLAM WAS EVEN CONCEIVED.
Attached to key 5 is found in Al-Husayn Muslim (Hadith) 001, 0031 where Muhammad said, “I have been ordered to WAGE WAR against mankind until they accept that there is no god but Allah and that they believe I am his prophet and accept all revelations spoken through me. When they do these things I will protect their lives and property unless otherwise justified by Islamic law…”
So, dear non-Muslim, you ARE AN ENEMY of Islam!!
But What Of Those “Peaceful” Muslims?
ISLAM IS ISLAM. The Quran/Hadith remain eternally as they are…and ALL Muslims are obligated BY LAW to fight: “You shall conquer many lands and Allah will grant you victory over your enemies in battle, but NONE OF YOU should stop PRACTICING for WAR” (MO 20, 4712). So, my dear liberal Christians, my dear peaceful Muslims, what of this hadith? Fighting in jihad is COMMANDED/DEMANDED for ALL Muslims (except the sick or crippled)!
After giving the above hadith, Muhammad followed up with: “Not equal are those believers (Muslims) who sit at home and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah” (Bukhari [B] Vol 6, Bk 60, [6.]118).
Hell For The Kafirs
TAKE HEED AMERICAN SOLDIERS: “The man who fights so that Islam should DOMINATE is the man who fights for Allah’s cause” (B 4, 52, 65). Warning: in B 4, 52, 72 Muhammad said that “any holy warrior killed will go to paradise” (where beautiful huris [virgins, 72 in all] await them). Umar asked Muhammad, “Is it true that Muslims killed in battle will go to paradise and kafirs (non-Muslims) who are killed in battle will go to Hell?” Muhammad said, “Yes.”
Is it any wonder that these Islamic boys/men fight in jihad? B 4, 52, 142 tells us that doing “jihad,” even for one day, puts a Muslims in paradise. What of the females (girls/women now used as human bombs)? Well, the Quran says that Hell will be populated mostly by females! No reward for them; no 72 virgin men in Paradise for them! Tell me, ladies of the West, why do you want to become a Muslim??
Could Islamic Jihad Break Out In America?
THE STANCE on Muslims concerning the U.S. is one that has been underway now for years. They openly brag about flying their black flag of DEATH over this nation!
There are three steps for the takeover to be complete:
The first two are already complete.
B 4, 52, 86 states: “WHEN YOU PREPARE TO FIGHT YOUR ENEMY, TAKE YOUR TIME.”
[Note: The observation of this rule is probably why the thousands of Islamic Jihadists right now in the US seem extremely peaceful–at the moment!]
THERE ARE DOZENS of Muslim groups working in the U.S. to overthrow it. To get a handle on what I speak of, try to get hold of “Muslim Mafia” by P. David Gaubatz and Paul Sperry, 422 pages of information. The main group is from the belly of the BEAST—Counsel on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). The FBI says that these Muslims are “good” at what they do. Their penetration/infiltration has cut deep into U.S. politics. We pray that prez Trump deals with these criminals, and swiftly!
Secret U.S. Brotherhoods are a deadly foe. Under former prez Obama, these sickos dug deep into U.S. policies—with his full approval.
Infiltration is the key to the Brotherhood’s massive SUBVERSIVE movement. They are already decades old. When detected, they, along with the liberal media, scream “Islamophobia” (CAIR, having the loudest voice).
So, groups like CAIR, MPAC, MAS and IIAMA (Islamic Institute and American Muslim Alliance) are SWORN ENEMIES of America and its citizens. The American Muslim Task Force on Civil Rights and Elections was formed to promote candidates into public office.
