Survey: Growing Number Of Danish Citizens Believe They Are Too Tolerant Of Muslims

10/16/2013 3 comments

Tolerating the intolerant. Many are beginning to realize that the “Golden Rule” of their politically inept correct society has become its “Golden Calf.” If the “Judeo-Christian” West had taken heed to the words of the Apostle Paul from the very beginning, it wouldn’t be in the mess it is finding itself in today …

Ephesians 5:11, “Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.”

Romans 12:9, “… Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good.”

The Copenhagen Post – “The public debates over banned Christmas treeshalal meat at schools and cashiers wearing headscarves appear to have made the Danish population more wary about giving their Muslim neighbours cultural concessions.

According to a new survey by market researcher TNS Gallup, carried out for Berlingske newspaper, every third non-Muslim Dane is under the impression that Denmark is too tolerant of its Muslim minority population.

Jens Peter Frølund Thomsen, a political science professor at Aarhus University, said that the most surprising thing about the survey was how little the Danish mentality has shifted, even though the Muslim immigrants arrived years ago.

‘The demands of assimilation weigh heavily on the Danish public,’ Thomsen told Berlingske. ‘We have a very ethnocentric culture and when people speak of integration in Denmark, they’re really talking about assimilation.’

Danes right to protect values

Mehmet Necef, a lecturer at the Institute of Middle East Studies at the University of Southern Denmark and the co-author of the book ‘Er Danskerne racister?’ (‘Are Danes Racist?’), argued that Danes are right to guard their values.

‘A decision to only serve halal-butchered meat is a failure because initiatives that cater specifically to a certain group will generate considerable irritation in the other group,’ Necef told Berlingske.

Necef pointed to the survey findings that showed that even 20 percent of people who vote for left-wing party Enhedslisten believe that the Danes are too tolerant of Muslims.

‘There is even irritation amongst people who have a positive view on Muslims and immigrants,’ Necef said.” Read more.

Muslim Scholar: The Islamist Trojan Horse Seeks To Change Laws, Wage War To The Death Against The Christian West And Israel

It’s a fairly long read, but good to see even a Muslim scholar able to somewhat float above the waves of a roaring sea instead of drowning in them …

Revelation 17:11, “As for the beast that was and is not, it is an eighth but it belongs to the seven, and it goes to destruction.”

By Ali Salim, Gatestone Institute – “With every Middle East country at each other’s throat, the Arab-Muslim world is uncertain of its fate. Some of its totalitarian regimes were toppled in the so-called Arab Spring but they have yet to be replaced by stable governments; the battle for the future of the Middle East is still being fought. The real question is whether the young people, representatives of moderate Islam and secular Arabs who initiated the Arab Spring, will be able to keep the region from being taken over by Islamists seeking to promote their own agendas, and to prevent it from being engulfed by a fundamentalist form of Islam.

Radical Islam may have been weakened but it is still a force. The revolution of the young reformists against the Shah of Iran was exploited by the Shi’ite Ayatollahs to take control of Iran. Turkey’s democratic government was overthrown as Erdogan established himself as its Islamist dictator. In the Palestinian Authority-administered territories, Hamas, a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, rose up against the PA, took over the Gaza Strip, and now eyes the West Bank and awaits the chance to pounce. Islamists almost took over Egypt, but praise to Allah (S.W.A.T.), were defeated at the last moment. Fortunately, the Muslim Brotherhood regime of Mohamed Morsi was terminated by the Egyptian army, commanded by the Minister of Defense, Gen. Abdel Fattah el-Sisi.

Past experience has shown that as soon as the Islamists are in control they change the democratic laws and institutions that allowed them to gain power; they are no longer interested in change or willing to accept opposition of any sort. It soon becomes clear that they cannot solve their country’s problems; their only desire is to exercise complete political and religious control, and the desperate, faltering masses continue to suffer as before. Eventually, with no help in sight, some will turn to more extreme forms of Islam, praying to Allah (S.W.A.T.) to save them from their hopeless plight, while others, disappointed by the Islamist regime, will abandon religion altogether.

Exposed by the media to the achievements of the West, the masses of the Middle East thirst for change and desire the quality of life enjoyed by the rest of the world. The Islamist movements, on the other hand, especially those that grabbed political power, desire the total alienation of their citizens from the West. Progress, freedom, human rights, a thriving economy, security and democracy are all trademarks of a competing religion, Christianity, while the Arab and Muslim world, despite its oil, land and water, remains mired in the shifting sand dunes of backwardness and reaction.

The values of the Judeo-Christian world and the attendant success of its economies and societies threaten the foundations of the Islamic faith and its universal mission, which to us feels as if it has failed, lags behind the rest of the world and deals only in bloodshed. From an Islamic point of view, such a failure is completely unacceptable. In addition, the mere existence and economic and military success of the Jewish State of Israel and what can be seen on television as its genuine democracy present a terrible challenge to radical Islam: for Islam, the Jews are not a nation but a collection of bits and pieces that have no right to a state of their own, to be condemned to eternal division and humiliation for rejecting the words of Allah (S.W.A.T.). Islam represents the one and only true, relevant and timely religion; there is no need for any other.

Therefore, as far as radical, fundamentalist Islam is concerned, the success of the West in general and of the Jews and Israel – the West’s ‘imperialist branch’ – in a flourishing state in the heart of the Middle East, all seem to contradict and cast into doubt the mission and rightness of Islam. The success of the West is unbearable, so the Islamists have declared a war to the death against it and against Israel.

Al Qaeda And The Muslim Brotherhood Hold Secret Meeting In Jordan, Discuss New Jihad In Egypt

10/16/2013 2 comments

Not so secret if the Arab media is reporting it. And not surprising, either, if true. After all, every Al Qaeda leader was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood or one of its arms at some point and both share one mind and one goal for the cause of “Allah” and his “prophet”: a global Islamist caliphate

By ARIEL BEN SOLOMON, The Jerusalem Post – “Al-Qaida and the international organization of the Muslim Brotherhood met secretly last week in Jordan according to a source quoted by the Egyptian daily Al-Youm al-Sabaa on Saturday.

The meeting focused on the conflict in Egypt and Syria and an altercation broke out between a Brotherhood member and jihadist leader Mohammad al-Miqdad, and the latter asked the Brotherhood not to publicly denounce the actions of the jihadists.

The jihadists discussed their plans to start moving Syrian and Iraqi jihadists into Egypt in order to carry out terror operations there after the Eid al-Adha festival, which falls on Tuesday.

It was explained in the meeting that the attempted assassination against the Egyptian interior minister and the attack on a satellite dish, which is part of the state’s TV communication system, were meant to demonstrate that they could access vital institutions in Cairo.” Source – The Jerusalem Post.

Flashback: Al-Qaeda Leader Vows To Rescue Muslim Brotherhood In Egypt, Calls For ‘Victims And Sacrifices’ To Create Islamist State, ‘The Battle Isn’t Over, It Has Just Started’ – “Al-Qaeda leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri commented on the current events in Egypt in a video released online, in which he criticised Islamists for losing power and not uniting to implement Sharia. ‘The battle isn’t over, it has just started…the Islamic nation should offer victims and sacrifices to achieve what it wants and restore power from the corrupt authority governing Egypt,’ Al-Zawahiri said.” Read more.

Flashback: Every Al Qaeda Leader Was A Member Of The Muslim Brotherhood – “Remember that the Muslim Brotherhood are ‘moderate’ Islamists and by moderate, we mean that they kill people and had Osama bin Laden on board as a member… Zawahiri would know all about the Muslim Brotherhood as he came out of Egypt and joined the Muslim Brotherhood as a teenager. He provided much of the real blueprint for Al-Qaeda based on the ideas of the Muslim Brotherhood. The pretense that Bin Laden and Zawahari are extremists while Morsi and El-Shater are moderates is just that. They’re all Muslim Brotherhood veterans carrying out its mission and its goals.” Read more.

Obama Praises Islam For Setting ‘Powerful Example’ On How To Work Together And Address Common Challenges

10/16/2013 3 comments

President Obama lauds Islam for setting a “powerful example” but failed to provide any real ones himself. The truth of the matter is that Islam has done little but keep the Muslim world spiritually desolate in an 8th century Arabian culture while seeking to terrorize and subdue all others. From India Today:

US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle today greeted Muslims across the world on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha, lauding their faith for setting a ‘powerful example’ on how to work together to address common challenges.

‘As our Muslim neighbours and friends gather for Eid celebrations, Muslim Americans are among the more than three million pilgrims joining one of the world’s largest and most diverse gatherings, which serves as a reminder of the shared roots of the world’s Abrahamic faiths,’ Obama said in a statement.

Contrary to the claim of Muslim apologists like Barack Hussein Obama, Islam has never been and will never be an “Abrahamic faith.” There is only one faith of Abraham, and it is belief in YHWH and His Promise — Jesus Christ who was crucified — the very thing that Islam completely denies

Galatians 1b-8a, 14, 16, “Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified… Abraham ‘believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.’ Understand, then, that those who have faith are children of Abraham. Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham … He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit… The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. Scripture does not say ‘and to seeds,’ meaning many people, but ‘and to your seed,’ meaning one person, who is Christ.”

He said that Muslims around the world who are joining in offering their assistance to those suffering from hunger, disease and conflict to commemorate Eid, is a powerful example of the positive role that faith can play in motivating communities to work together to address shared challenges.

“Shared challenges” that Islam itself is often responsible for. The Islamic world is ravaged by war, by deprivation, by desert and famine and starvation and pestilences, conditions that are true both physically and spiritually, both literally and figuratively. Because of “Sharia lawlessness” the “Religion of Peace” is typified by widespread destruction and disparity, and any number of recent headlines bear this out all too well. In Sudan, for example, slavery is explicitly permitted and tens of thousands of Christians are held in bondage, taken as slaves and face starvation because of Sharia laws instituted by an Islamist government. In Mali, 4.6 million people are threatened with starvation following Islamist advances in the north. In Somalia, Islamists deprive 1.3 million people of food, clean water and health care after banning humanitarian aid. In Chad, children starve to death as Islamic “doctors” with “healing gifts from Allah” throw common sense to the wind. Islamists are killing aid workers in Pakistan for trying to save lives with “un-Islamic” polio vaccines. Nigeria faces famine because most of the farmers in the north are threatened by Islamist attacks seeking to impose Sharia Law upon all. As Islamists engage in an all-out war to oust Bashar Al-Assad and implement an Islamist state in Syria, a flesh-eating parasite dubbed the “Aleppo Boil” sweeps across the country while famine grips a desperate, war-weary population. And this is all just the tip of the iceberg …

The Middle East: Will A Divided Kingdom Be Divided Yet Again?

10/16/2013 6 comments

Although the article below from a Lebanese paper touches upon the possibility that we could soon witness Middle Eastern nations divided and maps redrawn across the Arab world, its real focus, surprisingly, is upon just how inept Arab countries have been at “developing” themselves for nearly a century after Western powers first redrew the map of the Middle East. As divided as these nations already are, if they are also split geographically it’ll be because of the same reason they’ve been unable to develop themselves into modern, democratic and free societies to begin with. It’ll be because of Islam

Daniel 2:41-42, 44, “Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile… And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.”

By Rami G. Khouri, The Daily Star (Lebanon) – “An article and map in The New York Times’ Sunday edition two weeks ago examined the possibility that current upheavals may cause some Arab states to break up into smaller units. Written by the veteran foreign correspondent Robin Wright, the article created lively discussion among Middle East-focused circles in the United States, and in the Middle East it sparked wild speculation that it evidenced a new plan by Western powers, Israelis and others of evil intent to further partition large Arab countries into many smaller, weaker ones. The title of the article, ‘How 5 Countries Could Become 14,’ naturally fed such speculation, as did the immediate linkage in millions of Arab minds of how British and French colonial officials in 1916-1918 partitioned the former Ottoman lands of the Levant into a series of new countries called Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and Israel, while their colonial handiwork had also created new entities that ultimately became independent countries such as Kuwait, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and others.

Wright’s article explored the possibility that Libya could fracture into three units, Iraq and Syria into five units (of Druze, Kurds, Alawites, Sunnis and Shiites), Saudi Arabia into five units, and Yemen into two units. Syria might trigger such fragmentation across the region in stressed multisectarian societies. She did not advocate this, but only speculated whether sectarian stresses and conflicts might reconfigure countries that were not designed by the will of their own people.

Most critics of the article and map were horrified by the possibility that foreign powers may once again be at work redrawing the map of the Middle East, reaffirming two of the greatest lived traumas that have long plagued the Arab world: the ability and willingness of external powers to meddle deeply and structurally in our domestic condition, and the total inability of vulnerable, helpless Arab societies to do anything about this.

I understand the harsh reactions by Arabs who fear another possible redrawing of our map by foreign hands, but I fear that this is not really the bad news of the day; the really bad news is the state of existing Arab countries, and how most of them have done such a terrible job of managing the societies that they inherited after 1920.

The horror map is not the one published in the NYT two weeks ago; it is the existing map and condition of the Arab countries that have spent nearly a century developing themselves and have so little to show for it.

Not a single credible Arab democracy. Not a single Arab land where the consent of the governed actually matters. Not a single Arab society where individual men and women are allowed to use all their God-given human faculties of creativity, ingenuity, individuality, debate, free expression, autonomous analysis and full productivity. Not a single Arab society that can claim to have achieved a Read more…
