Sen. Rand Paul Shames Media For Ignoring Islam’s ‘Worldwide War On Christianity’
Senator Rand Paul noted in a speech today at the Values Voter Summit that “Pew Research did a poll and it indicated that 21% of Egyptians, 15% of Jordanians … 13% of Pakistani Muslims find terrorism acceptable, if not laudable… [I]f you add up the numbers in just three countries it’s over 40 million Muslims [who] sympathize with violence against Christians. This shouldn’t be understated.” And indeed, if between just 10% and 13% of Muslims all across the Muslim world are devoted enough to their “prophet” and to Islam, that’s about 200 million antichrist soldiers ready to raise the banner of jihad for the cause of “Allah” and his “prophet” against a world of non-Muslims. Where have we heard that number before? …
Revelation 6:8, “And I looked, and behold a [chlōros – green] horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the [thērion – savage, brutal, bestial men] of the earth…”
Revelation 9:13-16, “Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, ‘Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.’ So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind. Now the number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them.”
Sen. Paul went on to describe how “[President Obama is] now arming Islamic rebels who are allied with Al Qaeda who attacked us on 9/11. Does that make any sense at all? American tax dollars should never be spent to prop up a war on Christianity, but that’s what’s happening now across the globe …”
Qur’an Sura 8:39, “And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allah), then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do.”
‘Today I want to tell you about a war the mainstream media is ignoring,’ the Republican lawmaker said Friday during the Values Voter Summit in Washington. ‘From Boston to Zanzibar, there is a worldwide war on Christianity.’
‘You won’t hear much about it on the evening news because the answer is not convenient and does not fit the narrative we have been told about radical Islam,’ Paul added.
Paul also said President Obama ‘tries to gloss over who is attacking and killing Christians.’
‘But the truth is, there is a worldwide war on Christians by a fanatical element of Islam,’ Paul said.
‘Ever since 9/11, commentators have tried to avoid pointing fingers at Islam,’ he said. ‘While it is fair to point out that most Muslims are not committed to violence against Christians, this is not the whole truth and we should not let political correctness stand in the way of the truth.’
Examples referenced by Paul:
- Referencing an incident in Syria, Paul spoke of Islamic rebels storming into town and demanding everyone convert to Islam or die. ‘Sarkis el Zakhm stood up and answered them, ‘I am a Christian and if you want to kill me because I am a Christian, do it.’ Those were Sarkis last words.’
- ‘Elsewhere in Syria, Islamic rebels have filmed beheadings of their captives and celebrated by eating the heart of an enemy soldier,’ Paul said. ‘Two Christian bishops have been kidnapped and one priest recently killed.’
- ‘In Zanzibar, a priest was shot in the head on his way to church by two Muslim youths,’ Paul said. :A message by the Muslim Renewal said, ‘We thank our young men, trained in Somalia, for killing an infidel. Many more will die. We will burn homes and churches. We have not finished: at Easter, be prepared for disaster.’’
