IF anyone is under the delusion that Islam does not have an agenda, and that of defeating, overrunning and enslaving all non-Muslims, then surely the highlights of the following news stories from around the world should be a wake up call. The incidents, issues and stories highlighted were reported from 30 September 2006 to 6 December 2006, not even two and a half months. The question must be asked, how many concessions will the West make for the religion of peace (Islam), when it is quite obvious that the peace they are really after, is a piece here and a piece there, let alone Israel, until all the world is Islamic. Sleep and slumber civil libertarians, multiculturalists, for the time will come when the intolerance of the tolerant will come to bear, and Sharia (Islamic Law) could be introduced. As one point of view, quoted in a story below, says, the Netherlands is in peril of being 52 percent Islamic by 2015. Islam doesnt need guns and weapons to take over the world. The West is inviting them in.
ead of the Church of England and Defender of the Faith, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was praised yesterday after converting a room at Windsor Castle into a mosque. She took the historic step so Muslim staff have a quiet place to pray during Ramadan, Islams holiest month. *1 Im just glad that the King of Kings maintains the true standard of faith and faithfulness.
In the United Kingdom, A hardline Muslim teacher who caused a furore by denouncing pupils for celebrating Christmas, has been made a government schools inspector. Israr Khans Ofsted appointment was described by a former colleague as absolutely astonishing.
Mr Khan, now headmaster of an Islamic school, launched into his tirade during a concert rehearsal at Washwood Heath Secondary School in Birmingham in 1996 after the choir including around 40 Muslim youngsters, had sung a number of popular Christmas songs, including carols. He leapt from his seat, yelling: Who is your God? Why are you saying Jesus and Jesus Christ? God is not your Godit is Allah. As children in the audience began booing and clapping, a number of choir members both white and Asianwalked out, some in tears. *2
IN 1989 Irans mullahs accused Salman Rushdie of blasphemy and declared a fatwa against everyone associated with publishing The Satanic Verses. The novelist went underground for the next decade, followed by a 24-hour security detail. The Japanese and Italian translators of the book were stabbed two years later, Hitoshi Igarashi fatally. At the time, the fatwa was seen as an isolated stroke of lunacy by a crazed Islamic regime. Westerners were troubled but few ruminated on the possible link between this assault on freedom of speech and the Islamist bombs that were targeting US embassies in Africa, or envisioned what they augured for the future.
Five years after the September 11 attacks the world is a foreign place. Identity is the Wests obsession; one of its core values, freedom of speech, is under assault; and Europe is convulsed by the rise of Islamism within its borders. According to Dutch-born journalist, Ian Buruma, by 2015 Muslims will make up 52 percent of the Netherlands population. There are five million Muslims in France, while across the English Channel, notes Bruce Bawer, author of While Europe Slept, polling shows 40 percent of Britains 1.6 million Muslims would like to see the country under sharia law (sic) *3.
Summarising history, the article states, Not since the Ottoman Turks were hurled back at the siege of Vienna in 1683, writes Martin Walker in The Wilson Quarterly, the journal of the Woodrow Wilson International Centre for Scholars, has Europe been gripped by such apocalyptic visions of a Muslim invasion. *4
This time, in America, another school has been teaching Islam by having students study and learn Muslim prayers and dress as Muslims, and a lawyer who argued a previous dispute over this issue to the U.S. Supreme Court said such methodologies wouldnt last 10 seconds if it were Christianity being taught. The latest protests come from Nyssa, Oregon where one parent raised objections when the Islamic teachings came to light. The district there, according to Supt. Don Grotting, is teaching a chapter in a history textbook Journey Across Time that talks about how civilization has developed and some of the particular aspects of Islam. What is most disturbing though, is that the Superintendent states that for extra credit kids can dress up (as a Muslim). *5
On 12 October 2006, Toby Helm, chief political correspondent of the UKs Telegraph reporting on a speech by Ruth Kelly, the communities secretary, stated, Muslim organisations that refuse to defend core British values and fail to take a pro-active role in the fi ght against extremism are to lose access to millions of pounds of government funding. Of particular note in this issue was Ms Kellys apparent threat to the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), the umbrella group for Muslims which has received more than £200,000 from government in the past two years. Miss Kelly highlighted its refusal to take part in Holocaust Memorial Day. Such comments by government offi cials are in stark contrast to previous efforts by Labour ministers to tackle sensitive religious and cultural issues previously regarded as politically off limits for the party. *6
A committed Christian said today she planned to take legal action against her employers British Airways (BA) after the airline ruled that displaying her crucifi x breached uniform rules.
The hypocrisy of BA is highlighted all the more since, she and fellow employees had just undergone diversity trainingincluding receiving advice from pressure group Stonewall on how to treat gays and lesbians in the workplace.
The airlines uniform code states that staff must not wear visible jewellery or other adornments while on duty without permission from management. It makes exceptions for Muslim and Sikh minorities by allowing them to wear hijabs and turbans. Not to mention that BAs chief executive came under fi re, himself, for failing to comply with the uniform regulations by not wearing a tie. *7
(Note: BA has now changed its rules to allow crosses, etc.)
A man arrested as a terror suspect for allegedly trying to transport $340,000 from a group tied to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi , and who reputedly had connections to Osama bin Laden, helped write the Religious Expression in Public Schools guidelines issued by President Clinton during his tenure in offi ce. And that could explain why students at a California school were told as part of their required classes they would become Muslims and pray to Allahand a federal judge approved that, and why an Oregon school this year is delivering similar lessons to its students, as WND has reported.8 And to think, Hilary Clinton is running for president. What more damage could they do?
In 2004, al-Qaida (the militant Sunni Muslim terrorist organisation, whose name means the Law, the foundation or the base) warned Australia that it would never be safe from terrorism with the worlds most populous Islamic nation just to its north. Threatening Australias prime minister, John Howard, and foreign minister, Alexander Downer, the terror organisation for the religion of submission and peace (Islam) warned them not to interfere in Indonesia, nor take comfortthinking that Indonesia had a moderate president. *9
The nations (Australia) most senior Muslim cleric has blamed immodestly dressed women who dont wear Islamic headdress for being preyed on by men and likened them to abandoned meat that attracts voracious animals. In a Ramadan sermon that has outraged Muslim women leaders, Sydney-based Sheikh Taj Din al-Hilali also alluded to the infamous Sydney gang rapes, suggesting the attackers were not entirely to blame,10 reported Richard Kerbaj of The Australian on 26 October 2006. In response to the outcry, Sheikh al-Hilali went on to accuse Australias media of misrepresenting his Ramadan sermon. Unfortunately for al-Hilali, The Australian newspaper provided a transcript of his speech, which shows that al-Hilali meant exactly what he said:
But in the event of adultery, the responsibility falls 90 percent of the time with women. Why? Because the woman possesses the weapon of seduction. She is the one who takes her clothes off, cuts them short, acts fl irtatious, puts on make-up and powder, and goes on the streets dallying. She is the one wearing a short dress, lifting it up, lowering it down, then a look, then a smile, then a word, then a greeting, then a chat, then a date, then a meeting, then a crime, then Long Bay Jail, then comes a merciless judge who gives you 65 years.
But the whole disaster, who started it? The Al-Rafihi scholar says in one of his literary works, he says: If I come across a crime of rape kidnap and violation of honourI would discipline the man and teach him a lesson in morals, and I would order the woman be arrested and jailed for life.
Why, Rafi hi? He says, because if she hadnt left the meat uncovered, the cat wouldnt have snatched it. If you take a kilo of meat, and you dont put it in the fridge, or in the pot, or in the kitchen, but you put in on a plate and placed (sic) it outside in the yard. Then you have a fi ght with the neighbour because his cats ate the meat. Then (inaudible). Right or not?
If one puts uncovered meat out in the street, or on the footpath, or in the garden, or in the park, or in the backyard without a cover, then the cats come and eat it, is it the fault of the cat or the uncovered meat?
The uncovered meat is the problem! If it was covered the cat wouldnt have [snatched it]. It would have circled around it and circled around it, then given up and gone. If she was in her room, in her house, wearing her hijab, being chaste, the disasters wouldnt have happened... *11
There you have it, in al-Hilalis own words. Let me suggest that the only time that al-Hilali is misrepresented, is when he misrepresents himself by his own blatant lies. He said it, and he meant it. Uncovered meat is the problem
uncovered women are the problem, not the men who rape them. How much higher is Gods true standard, than the male orientated standards of the Quran?
Jesus tells us:
You have heard that it was said, YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY; but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart (Matthew 5:27-28).
Let us not play with ideas of covered and uncovered, it is the desires of our own hearts, the lusts of our eyes and fl esh, and the willingness to give a place to them, irrespective of what kind of sin, that is the problem. We are all guilty. It is a shame that we prefer to pass the buck and blame others for our own weakness, sinfulness and treachery, but such is the natural mans self-righteousness and pride of life (cf. 1 John 2:16).
New South Wales opposition leader Peter Debnam has written to premier Morris Iemma calling for the state government to withdraw funding from the Lakemba mosque while Sheikh Taj el-Din Al Hilali remains the mufti. The Australian ABC article reports that The Lebanese Muslim Association (LMA) was given $122,000 this year for social workers through the Department of Community Services (DOC). Mr Iemma, though, regarded Mr Debnams comments as nothing more than a political stunt. *12
A Saudi court has sentenced a gang rape victim to 90 lashes of the whip because she was alone in a car with a man to whom she was not married. The sentence was passed at the end of a trial in which the al-Qateef high criminal court convicted four Saudis convicted of the rape, sentencing them to prison terms and a total of 2,230 lashes. Despite being found guilty, one of the assailants received only a one-year imprisonment and 80 lashes. The victims male friend, who was in the car with her, when they were kidnapped, received 90 lashes for being alone with her in the car. *13
In statements reminiscent of the reformation, or the history of yesteryear when Europe was previously under Islamic siege, Jonathan Wynne- Jones of the Sunday Telegraph reported that a leading church group which represents more than a million Christians has raised the prospect of civil unrest and even violent revolution to protect religious freedoms. Amazingly though, Wynne- Jones says that their comments, echoes comments made by Muslim fanatics and that, Only days ago, Islamic activist Anjem Choudary said Muslims had become radicalised because they were a community under siege. In stark contrast though, the articles web page uses the image of a masked Islamic protestor holding a sign saying, Behead those that insult Islam (from the Danish cartoon controversy). And yet, despite the tough words by church leaders, no Christian seeks to behead Muslims, or non-Christians, for insulting our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Islam says Jesus is not God, and that He did not die on a cross, but Himself had a substitute. Amazingly, Wynne-Jones quotes Anjem Choudary, who helped organise the anti- Danish cartoon protests.
The London bombings should not have come as a surprise. How else do you expect Muslims to express themselves?
We are a community under siege.
Its going to blow up one day in everyones faces. If it was a Christian spokesperson, who had made such statements, they would have been the ones who were blasted. *14
Islam is taking over, piece by piece, city by city, country by country. All we need do is look at Europe where Jews are an endangered species.
Soon enough (it seems), the American Jew will likewise be endangered. Soon enough, Israel will be the only, and the unlikely, place Jews will be safe. We encourage you to read Paul Beliens article, The Rape of Europe *15 (A synopsis from The Golden Report *16, 19 November 2006)
In a private email to Philip Powell from Ireland via London (UK) the writer shared about Muslims fl ooding into the Republic of Ireland and given land to build a mosque while they as Protestant believers have been turned down twice by the town council for permission to build. They were given land but denied permits for building, and were told that they would never be able to build a place of worship... .
She writes: We just continue to meet in a hotel as we have done for the past 8½ years where we rent rooms for worship and for childrens church. We keep looking for property that we can afford but everything is extremely expensive here.
28 November 2006, The Washington Times reports, Muslim religious leaders removed from a Minneapolis flight last week exhibited behaviour associated with a security probe by terrorists and were not merely engaged in prayers, according to witnesses, police reports and aviation security offi cials.
Furthermore, the article stated, Passengers and flight attendants told lawenforcement offi cials the Imams switched from their assigned seats to a pattern associated with the September 11 terrorist attacks and also found in probes of U.S. security since the attacks.
In their defence the Imams said they were merely praying before the 6.30pm fl ight on November 20, and yesterday led a protest by prayer with other religious leaders at the airlines ticket counter at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.
Strange that they had to change seats to pray?
Two in the front row fi rst-class, two in the middle of the plane on the exit aisle and two in the rear of the cabin. *17
One might suggest that such action was intentional, just as provoking the expected response was; all for the purpose of getting profi ling banned on US fl ights.
Other reported unusual actions by the Imams was, The Imams also claimed two fi rstclass seats, saying their tickets were upgraded.The gate agent told police that when the Imams asked to be upgraded, they were told no such seats were available. Nevertheless, the two men were seated in fi rst class when removed *18.
Two Muslim students have been expelled from an Islamic school in Melbourne for urinating and spitting on a Bible and setting it on fi re. The explosive incident has forced the East Preston Islamic College to call in a senior imam to tell its 650 Muslim students that the Bible and Christianity must be respected.
Anxious teachers at the school have also petitioned principal Shaheem Doutie, expressing grave concern about an inculcation of hatred and radical attitudes towards non-Muslims at the school, including towards non-Muslim teachers. The article goes on to say, the desecration incident has shaken the nerves of the schools teachers, about half of whom are non- Muslim. A petition signed by 22 teachers expressed anguish and dismay at the grave incident of the desecration of the Holy Bible. This whole incident implies a deep hatred inculcated in the students towards the Christian/non-Muslim teachers. The petition said there had been previous incidents of students misbehaving towards non-Muslim teachers. It called on the school to take steps to rectify this explosive situation to ensure the safety of teachers. *19
In reality, one has to question why this surprises people. If secular society thinks the Bible is nothing more than a story book, and that the US, for example, has banned, in places, the Bible from classroom and courtrooms (eg, biblical monuments outside of courthouses), why would a non-Christian think the Bible to be anything special, to be regarded, considered or respected.
