Lying Wonders: Muslim Man Finds “Allah” Written Inside Watermelon In Arabic

06/15/2016 1 comment

The proof is in the pudding! Or, in this case, a piece of watermelon. It kinda gives the “You will know them by their fruits” thing a whole new meaning, doesn’t it? Sinuous lines in fruit might be viewed as evidence by some that Islam is their religion of truth, but for everyone else evidence like this merely serves to remind us how the crescent moon of Islam and theological lunacy are utterly inseparable. I wonder how they feel about all those Christian tomatoes? …

2 Thessalonians 2:9-10, “The coming of the [lawless one] is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.”

Proverbs 1:31, “Therefore shall they eat the fruit of their way, and be filled to the full with their own fancies.”

By Jen Mills, Metro.co.uk – “A man from Leicester believes he has found ‘Allah’ written in Arabic script after cutting open a watermelon.

Asif Iqbal, 31, was so stunned by the finding that he gathered his whole family to see and news then spread to others in the neighbourhood.

‘People have been coming round to see the name – and we’ve given pieces of it away too,’ he said. ‘I’d love to tell you how many people have been here but I honestly lost count, it’s been non-stop.’

He bought the fruit for just £2 in Tesco and was ready to eat it when he spotted the wording last Thursday.

‘I have spoken to a scholar and he said this is just one of those things that reminds the world that Allah does exist,’ Asif, a father of four, said.

‘I was shocked when we found the name, it was like a blessing – and to have something like that come during Ramadan, too, that makes it even more special.’

The revelation comes midway through the holy month of Ramadan, when Muslims fast from dawn to sunset to mark the time they believe Allah revealed the Quran to Mohammed in Arabic.

Last year another Muslim couple from Leicester found an egg with the name of Allah embossed on the shell.

Farid Jussab, 37, and wife Anisa, 36, claim they were ‘blessed by a miracle’ after the markings spelled out ‘None to be worshipped except Allah’.” Source – Metro.co.uk.

MustSeeTV: David Wood Fact Checks Islam-Sanitizing Video Titled “10 Lies You Were Told About Islam”

03/14/2016 1 comment

One could almost conclude that the video David Wood begins to expose below was somehow a Friday Prayers Live version of Saturday Night Live satire. Then again, good humor in Islam would be un-Islamically bad …

“Do not laugh too much, for laughing deadens the heart.” – The Prophet Mohammed, Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2305; Ibn Maajah, 4193.

“Allah did not create man so that he could have fun. The aim of creation was for mankind to be put to the test through hardship and prayer… There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious …” – Iran’s late Grand Ayatollah Khomeini

David Wood: “I just watched one of the stupidest videos ever made. Part of the reason it’s so stupid is that it’s not supposed to be stupid. In other words, some videos are supposed to be stupid so their stupidity isn’t as stupid, but when a video isn’t trying to be stupid and it ends up being shockingly stupid, that’s a special kind of stupid …” Watch more below. If others are posted they’ll be added.

Bizarro-World: Saudi Police Undergo Training To Combat Wizards, Witches And Leprechauns

02/23/2016 Leave a comment

1 Timothy 4:1 tells us we’d see “deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons” in the last days, and we certainly have. The “prophet” Mohammed claimed that he was the victim of a magic spell that gave him delusional thoughts and demonic revelations, so it’s no surprise when Muslims instinctively believe in things like evil Jinns and the black magic of wizards and witches. As for those leprechauns, take heed. They may be the official color of Islam, but the Saudi authorities are doing everything possible to ensure those disbelieving little Irish deceivers stay out of Mecca …

The “InfideLepreCon”

By Hugh Fitzgerald, Jihad Watch – “From Saudi Arabia comes the news that the mutaween, the feared religious police under the control of the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice, who patrol the streets and regulate the daily life of the populace, are now being given five-day courses in how to recognize, and then how to neutralize, a small army of wizards, witches, ghosts, demons, fortunetellers in the Magic Kingdom. Apparently it’s a big problem. Why, there have even been reports of leprechaun-like creatures – possibly they’ve wandered down from the Old Sod to end up in the Empty Quarter – who find it great fun to persuade innocent Saudis to break the rules of Sharia. All these dealers in the magical and supernatural will be hunted down, and dealt with sternly, by the Saudi religious police — ‘sternly’ can mean anything from long prison sentences to decapitation. Such worries are not new to the Saudis, however — the official anti-witchcraft unit within the Ministry of the Interior was first formed in May 2009.

The reason the Saudis are so worried about wizards and witches is that the Saudi people, like other Muslims, are especially vulnerable to the appeal of the occult. Muslims learn from the Qur’an that there exists an intelligent creature (the only other intelligent creature in the universe, according to Islamic doctrine, aside from humans and angels), called the Djinn (or Jinn), whose meddling with humans explains Evil, as well as health and illness, wealth and poverty, that Man as a creature of fate – where everything may be inshallah but is not necessarily hunky-dory — may enjoy or endure. Evil djinn — not all djinn in Islam are bad – can take possession of people and cause them to behave in wicked ways.

This is not foreign to, but part of, orthodox Islam. Fortunately, there are those who, after appropriate training, can become qualified exorcisers of the evil djinn, using special Qur’anically-approved healing methods. There are also those who have not undergone training to be exorcists and who use methods which have not been approved, and this gets them into trouble with officials even if their methods prove effective. The Saudi witchcraft-hunt offers us a glimpse of the Bizarro-World that we enter whenever we penetrate the world of Islam. In the West, we hardly bother to denounce those who claim to be witches and wizards, exorcists and fortunetellers, that is, all who lay claim to supernatural powers, because we know, as rational creatures, that they are frauds and fakes, they cannot possibly have these powers. And because we don’t believe any of that stuff, we don’t worry about them in this, our Western world, the dutiful child of the Enlightenment and rationalism. If we punish any fortunetellers or magicians at all, it’s only because they have charged for services we know are worthless and we want them to disgorge their ill-gotten gains. Witchcraft has not been taken seriously, i.e. as effective, since Salem, when outside it was 1692.

But in the Islamic world, magic (bad or black magic and good magic) is everywhere and taken very seriously – i.e., thought to be effective – indeed. In the Islamic world, belief in witchcraft, magic, sorcery of all kinds, is widespread. Fear of black magic is pervasive. Fortunetellers, witches and wizards, exorcists of bad djinn are to be found everywhere. And this is because Magic and the Occult are very much a part of Muslim teachings and Muslim life.

The Occult – the Djinn – transmitted by the Qur’an, helps to explain the widespread belief in other kinds of sorcery and magic in the Muslim world. But it is not the whole explanation for that belief. The heightened vulnerability of Muslims to the promise and threat of assorted wizards, fortunetellers, sorcerers, and exorcists, as compared to the sturdy resistance of rational Western man, is to be explained also by the more general effect of Islam’s encouragement of the habit of mental submission, and its punishment of skepticism. A good Muslim never questions any of the teachings of Islam, and the observant Muslim state (as Saudi Arabia certainly is) punishes those Muslims who dare to demonstrate the least display of skepticism (the end-point of that skepticism is apostasy, punishable by death). The result is that Muslims, even without the whole business of the Djinn, inhabit a mental universe of encouraged credulity. And as the latest news with which I began this post reveals, the most comically extreme example of this Bizarro World has a local habitation and is better known, to most of us, by its Rand-McNally Atlas name – Saudi Arabia.” Source – Jihad Watch.

Muslim Outreach: NASA Censors “Jesus” From Christian Employee Club Emails

02/18/2016 Leave a comment

“NASA lawyers didn’t want innocent observers to come to the erroneous conclusion that the space agency endorses Christianity.” Of course not. Because it would rather endorse Islam. If “Muslim Outreach” is now one of NASA’s Obama-sanctioned covert goals and the reason why they’ve chosen to censor the name of Jesus, then the National Aeronautics and Space Administration might want to change its name. After all, the “NASA” acronym is far too similar to the Arabic word used to describe all us cursed infidels who worship Him: NASARA! …

Qur’an Sura 9:30, “… the Christians [an NASAra] say, ‘The Messiah is the son of [God].’ That is their statement from their mouths … May Allah destroy them …”

gm10070720100707100951By Jonah Bennett, The Daily Caller – “A legal group focused on religious liberty just threatened National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) with a lawsuit in response to the government agency’s censorship of the word ‘Jesus’ from emails.

In a letter sent Monday, the Liberty Institute stated that NASA lawyers pressured a group of employees at the Johnson Space Center to remove the word ‘Jesus’ from a club announcement. This demand took place in May and June of 2015.

These employees had formed a private group within the agency called the JSC Praise and Worship Club, an entity separate from the agency. As part of the group, employees meet together during lunch to pray, and no one is prevented from taking part in the group’s activities.

In an announcement email, one of the employees had used the word ‘Jesus.’ A few days after the email went out, NASA lawyers clamped down and said the use of the word was absolutely unacceptable and would not accept the group’s offer to issue any kind of disclaimer to downplay its use.

The reason it was unacceptable? NASA lawyers didn’t want innocent observers to come to the erroneous conclusion that the space agency endorses Christianity…” Read more.

Revelation 18:4-5, “And I heard another voice from heaven saying, ‘Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.'”

Non-Muslims are forbidden from Islam’s “holy” city of Mecca

Someone asked me not too long ago that if the “Whore of Babylon” in Revelation 17 and 18 represented Mecca, the birthplace and spiritual homestead of Islam, then how could God call upon His people to “come out of her” given the fact that non-Muslims have never been allowed to even step foot in Islam’s “holiest” city?  The answer to this question is actually quite simple when we realize the language and intent of the text is not suggesting that some of God’s people are physically in Mecca, but another way all together. Notice the relationship between the “kings of the earth” and the adulterous Babylonian “harlot”:

Revelation 17:1-2, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”

PM of Canada (center right) prays at mosque

The Book of Revelation is redolent with Old Testament language. If we look at the Hebrew word for “fornication” we realize that it was often used figuratively in the context of idolatry and being unfaithful to God. We see the same thing in Revelation 2:14 and 2:20 where “fornication” being committed by God’s people is in direct reference to a false religion. In Revelation 17:2, the relationship between the “kings of the earth” and the “harlot” is likewise depicted in sexually graphic terms where the “kings of the earth” are committing spiritual intercourse or “fornication” with a false Babylonian religion. Today, we see Western nations — from leaders of traditionally Christian countries who claim to be Christian yet who are all too willing to visit mosques and even offer prayers to Allah in the vein of inclusivity — bending over backwards for the “Religion of Peace” at every turn and even punishing those daring to criticize it. Sadly, one unfortunate side-effect of such “political correctness” is the fact that we are now also seeing a number of Christian churches openly embracing certain aspects of Islam and its blasphemous teachings far too often, with some of them even going so far as to hold readings of the Qur’an or distributing Qur’ans for public consumption in an effort to somehow show that as a Christian church they love all people and don’t “discriminate” in any way, shape or form. Loving all people is one thing, but embracing the religion of all people is another, especially one whose primary goal is the destruction of the elect of God:

* Over 50 American Churches To Hold Qur’an Readings
* Utah Church Gives Away Free Copies Of Qur’an, Calls It ‘Truth’
* Christian Church In Germany Holds Muslim Call To Prayer
* Christian Church Collecting Donations To Build A Mosque
* Christian College Establishes Interfaith Prayer Room For Muslims
* Iowa Church ‘Dialogue On Islam’ Ignores Muslim Persecution Of Christians

Muslim prayer during service at Washington National Cathedral

This is happening far too often. Whether it’s on an individual Christian level or Christians sitting in churches and calling it Ecuminism or Chrislam or Interfaith or anything else, we all need to be standing up and calling it WRONG. If we’re to be a “holy nation” as 1 Peter 2:9 calls believers in Christ, we must set ourselves apart from such religious filth and “have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them” (Ephesians 5:11). In these last days, it is therefore no surprise that as soon as we are given a depiction of explicit spiritual “fornication” in Revelation 18:3 we then read the following warning in the very next verse:

Revelation 18:4,Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.”

Jesus gave a similar warning to the church in Thyatira for tolerating “that woman” who was “teaching and seducing My servants to practice sexual immorality … Behold, I will throw her onto a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her I will throw into great tribulation” (Revelation 2:18-22).

The Word of God tells us that “in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons” (1 Timothy 4:1), but those of us who overcome are being clothed in white garments (Revelation 3:5). No matter what comes our way, may we all make sure to keep them on (Revelation 16:15) …

Jesus is not the Son of God: ‘O People of the Scripture! Do not exaggerate in your religion nor utter aught concerning Allah save the truth.

And: ‘It is not befitting to (the majesty of) Allah that He should beget a son. Glory be to Him! when He determines a matter, He only says to it, ‘Be,’ and it is.’ — Qur’an 19:35

Jesus was not crucified: ‘And because of their saying: We slew the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, Allah’s messenger – they slew him not nor crucified him, but it appeared so unto them; and lo! those who disagree concerning it are in doubt thereof; they have no knowledge thereof save pursuit of a conjecture; they slew him not for certain.’ — Qur’an 4:157

Canada: Police Open Fire On Suspected Suicide Bomber Near Toronto

11/17/2015 Leave a comment

The authorities are only saying the individual in question was “emotionally disturbed” at this time, so no word on the suspect’s religious affiliation. It’s a testament to the times in which we live, however, when news like this causes everyone to think of just one “peaceful religion” in particular and its emotionally disturbed founder …

Qur’an Sura 33:21, “Indeed in Allah’s Messenger (Mohammad) you have an excellent example to follow for him who hopes in (meeting with) Allah and the Last Day…”

1297772839249_ORIGINALBy Chris Doucette, Toronto Sun – “Hours after the horrific terror attacks in Paris, a stand-off unfolded between police officers and a suspected suicide bomber in a Mississauga neighbourhood, the Toronto Sun has learned.

French officials were still counting their dead when Peel Regional Police officers ended a frightening confrontation by opening fire on the 26-year-old man at Golden Orchard Dr. and Grand Forks Rd. — near Bloor St. and Dixie Rd. — shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday.

In the aftermath of the shooting, police downplayed the incident saying only that the call involved ‘an emotionally disturbed person.’

But the presence of the service’s Explosive Disposal Unit and heavily armed Tactical officers at the scene suggested a far more serious threat was afoot.

A source, who asked not to be named, revealed to Sun on Monday that the bomb squad responded because the man in question was wearing what appeared to be a suicide vest and holding what looked like a triggering device.

It was not immediately known if the vest actually contained explosives.

But suicide bombers and gunmen killed 129 victims in Paris less than eight hours earlier. So police, who were on heightened alert, took the threat seriously.

Uniformed officers shot the suspected suicide bomber four times, the source said.

Fortunately, the shooting was not followed by an explosion.

The man, whose nationality was not immediately clear, was rushed to the trauma centre at St. Mike’s hospital in Toronto. He is expected to survive.

Another source said investigators have since determined the vest was not real.” Read more.

David Wood: The Qur’an And The Siege Of Paris

11/16/2015 1 comment

Another great video from David Wood that should easily help even the willingly blind to connect a few dots …

Qur’an Sura 5:32-33, “… whoever kills a soul unless for a soul [revenge] or for corruption [done] in the land – it is as if he had slain mankind entirely … Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment.”

David Wood: “We’re not quite close enough to an election for the Obama Administration to blame the Paris attacks on a YouTube video, so for now, at least, everyone is acknowledging that these were bonafide terrorist attacks, not protests that got a little out of hand. But given that these were terrorist attacks we still have to ask, ‘What caused these attack’? Was it:

A: Climate Change?
B: Income Inequality?
C: Islamophobia?
D: Joblessness
E: Starbucks Coffee Cups, or
F: Muhammad’s Repeated Commands to Wage Terrorist Attacks?

Thanks to the power of social media to spread complete nonsense, we’ve all been assured that the answer can’t possibly have anything to do with Muhammad….” Watch the video below.

The Death Of Europe – How The “Mohammed Retirement Plan” Will Kill It

10/21/2015 3 comments

Muslim men of military fighting age, far too many of whom refuse to work. What could possibly go wrong? …

Qur’an Sura 3:110, “Ye [Muslims] are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind …”

Qur’an Sura 8:55, “Surely the vilest of animals in Allah’s sight are [non-Muslims] …”

By Daniel Greenfield, Frontpage Mag – “European leaders talk about two things these days; preserving European values by taking in Muslim migrants and integrating Muslim migrants into Europe by getting them to adopt European values.

It does not occur to them that their plan to save European values depends on killing European values.

The same European values that require Sweden, a country of less than 10 million, to take in 180,000 Muslim migrants in one year also expects the new ‘Swedes’ to celebrate tolerance, feminism and gay marriage. Instead European values have filled the cities of Europe with Shariah patrols, unemployed angry men waving ISIS flags and the occasional public act of terror.

European countries that refuse to invest money in border security instead find themselves forced to invest money into counterterrorism forces. And those are bad for European values too.

But, as Central European countries are discovering, European values don’t have much to do with the preservation of viable functioning European states. Instead they are about the sort of static Socialism that Bernie Sanders admires from abroad. But even a Socialist welfare state requires people to work for a living. Maine’s generous welfare policies began collapsing once Somali Muslims swarmed in to take advantage of them. Denmark and the Dutch, among other of Bernie Sanders’ role models, have been sounding more like Reagan and less like Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren.

Two years ago, the Dutch King declared that, ‘The classic welfare state of the second half of the 20th century in these areas in particular brought forth arrangements that are unsustainable in their current form.’ That same year, the Danish Finance Minister called for the ‘modernization of the welfare state.’

But the problem isn’t one of modernization, it’s medievalization.

27% of Moroccans and 21% of Turks in the Netherlands are unemployed. It’s 27% in Denmark for Iraqis. And even when employed, their average income is well below the European average.

Critics pointed out in the past that a multicultural America can’t afford the welfare states that European countries have. Now that those same countries are turning multicultural, they can’t afford them either.

Europe invested in the values of its welfare state. The Muslim world invested in large families. Europe expects the Muslim world to bail out its shrinking birth rate by working and paying into the system so that its aging population can retire. The Muslim migrants however expect Europe to subsidize their large families with its welfare state while they deal some drugs and chop off some heads on the side.

Once again, European values are in conflict with European survival.

The European values that require Europe to commit suicide are about ideology, not language, culture or nationhood. But the incoming migrants don’t share that ideology. They have their own Islamic values.” Read more.

Indonesia: Up To 75% Of Christians Forced To Flee Aceh Regency After Muslims Destroy Church

10/15/2015 Leave a comment

Hundreds upon hundreds of devout followers on fire for Allah went out seeking to spread the peaceful message of Islam to local Christians. Unfortunately, another church burst into flames in the process …

Qur’an Sura 9:14, 30, “Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace … even if they are of the People of the Book … the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them …”

The Jakarta Post – “Thousands of people, mostly Christians, have left Aceh Singkil regency, Aceh, for neighboring regencies in North Sumatra after an Islamic group attacked a village and set fire to a church.

The attackers, grouped under the Aceh Singkil Islamic Care Youth Students Association (PPI), arrived in Suka Makmur village, Gunung Meriah district, Aceh Singkil, in several trucks on Tuesday afternoon and set alight the Huria Kristen Indonesia (HKI) Church, which they considered to be unlicensed.

Hundreds of police and military officers who had earlier been deployed to the village failed to prevent the attack as they were outnumbered. One of the attackers, identified as Samsul, was shot dead when Christians, the majority in the village, tried to defend their church.

Samsul, 21, a resident of Bulu Sema village, Suro Makmur, died from an air rifle wound, while three other attackers were injured and were taken to the regency’s general hospital for treatment.

The church was one of 10 in the regency that was protested by the Islamic group. At a recent meeting at the regency office between the protesters, the churches’ board members and local officials, it was reportedly agreed that the churches would be demolished on Oct. 19.

After the attack, about 75 percent of the villagers moved to other areas, with many houses in Suka Makmur left empty and locked up.

‘We are still afraid that an incident could occur again if [the situation is] not handled properly,’ congregation member Silaban said on Wednesday.

The police recorded that 3,433 people had moved to Central Tapanuli regency and 976 to Pakpak Bharat regency, both in North Sumatra.

Many parties have denounced the attack in Aceh, the only province in the country to implement sharia.

‘Stop violence in Aceh Singkil. Any act of violence, whatever the reasons behind it, not to mention if it is related to religion and faith, will kill diversity — Jkw,’ President Joko ‘Jokowi’ Widodo said on Wednesday on his Twitter account @jokowi.

Jokowi has ordered Coordinating Political, Legal and Security Affairs Minister Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan and National Police chief Gen. Badrodin Haiti to take immediate action to stop violence and promote peace in the regency.

Badrodin acknowledged that the National Police had foreseen such an attack but had not readied enough security personnel on Tuesday to protect the church from the attackers, estimated to have numbered 500 to 700 people.” Read more.

By The Sword: How The Islamic World Was Formed – An Exercise In Common Sense

09/01/2015 Leave a comment

Revelation 6:4, “Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword.”

Here is another very informative article by Raymond Ibrahim that I encourage everyone to read and digest …

Qur’an Sura 8:39, “And fight with [non-Muslims ] until … religion should be only for Allah …”

Qur’an Sura 8:39, “And fight with [non-Muslims] until … religion should be only for Allah …”

By Raymond Ibrahim, FrontPage Mag – “What made non-Muslims convert to Islam, leading to the creation of the Islamic world?

Early historical sources — both Muslim and non-Muslim — make clear that the Islamic empire was forged by the sword; that people embraced Islam, not so much out of sincere faith, but for a myriad of reasons — from converting in order to enjoy the boons of being on the ‘winning team’ to converting in order to evade the dooms of being on the ‘losing team.’

Modern day Muslims and other apologists — primarily in academia, government, and mainstream media — reject this idea.  They argue that the non-Muslims who embraced Islam did so from sheer conviction; that the ancestors of today’s 1.5 billion Muslims all converted to Islam due to its intrinsic appeal; that the modern day coercion and persecution committed by the Islamic State and other organizations is an aberration.

Of course, as mentioned, the primary texts of history are full of anecdotes demonstrating the opposite.  However, because ours is an increasingly ahistorical society, in this essay I endeavor to show that sheer common sense alone validates what history records, namely, that the Islamic world and its populace was forged through violent coercion.

To do so, I will use Egypt — one of the most important Muslim majority nations and my ancestral homeland — as a paradigm.  I will show how a historic fact that Islam’s apologists habitually boast of — that there are still millions of Christians in Egypt (approximately 10% of the population) — is not proof of Islam’s tolerance but rather its intolerance.

—–

In the 7th century, when Islam was being formulated, Egypt had been Christian for centuries,[1] before most of Europe had converted.  Alexandria was one of the most important ecclesiastical centers of ancient Christian learning and, along with Rome and Antioch, one of the original three sees.[2]  Much literary and ongoing archeological evidence attest to the fact that Christianity permeated the whole of Egypt.

Writing around the year 400—roughly two-and-a-half centuries before the Arab invasion—John Cassian, a Christian monk from the region of modern day Romania, observed that

the traveler from Alexandria in the north to Luxor in the south would have in his ears along the whole journey, the sounds of prayers and hymns of the monks, scattered in the desert, from the monasteries and from the caves, from monks, hermits, and anchorites.[3]

And in recent times, both the oldest parchment to contain words from the Gospel (dating to the 1st century) and the oldest image of Christ were discovered in separate regions of Egypt.

The question now becomes: what made such an ancient and heavily Christian nation become Islamic?  More specifically, what made the ancestors of today’s Egyptian Muslims — most of who were Coptic Christians — convert to Islam?

For an objective answer to this question, a completely overlooked factor must be considered.” Read more.

Day Of Terror: Islamist Attacks Around The World Follow ISIS’ Ramadan Call For Death And Destruction

06/26/2015 Leave a comment

What is it about Islam’s Friday prayers that often motives Mohammed’s faithful into becoming the best Muslims they can be for the cause of Allah? Today is not just turning out to be a busy day of desolation and terror. It’s business as usual under Islam’s 1,400 years of desolations and terrorism, and it will not come to an end until the end itself comes …

Daniel 9:26b, “… And the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it shall be with a flood, and till the end of the war desolations are determined.”

Qur’an Sura 4:95, “Not equal are those believers [Muslims] who sit at home and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit at home …”

Revelation 9:11, “Their king is the angel from the bottomless pit; his name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon – the Destroyer.”

FOX News – “Terrorists struck around the world Friday, beheading a man in France, gunning down dozens on a beach in Tunisia and launching a suicide attack on a mosque in Kuwait, in a series of attacks that followed an ISIS leaders’ call to make the month of Ramadan a time of ‘calamity for the infidels.’

There was no confirmation that any of the attacks were ordered by ISIS, although the suspects who attacked a U.S.-owned gas factory in southeastern France left the terrorist army’s flags next to the severed head of their victim. If the attacks were indeed an answer to ISIS spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani’s recent call for savagery, it would represent a hideous perversion of Islam’s most holy period, which began June 17 and ends July 17.

Jihadists should make Ramadan a time of ‘calamity for the infidels … Shi’ites and apostate Muslims,’ Al-Adnani said in a recent audio message. ‘Muslims everywhere, we congratulate you over the arrival of the holy month. Be keen to conquer in this holy month and to become exposed to martyrdom.’

The attack in France occurred first, at 9:50 a.m. local time in Saint-Quentin-Fallavier, northwest of the Alpine city of Grenoble. Two suspects dressed as deliverymen crashed a car into an industrial gas plant operated by Allentown, Pa.,-based Air Products & Chemicals, stormed inside and killed at least one person. The head of the victim was left on a fence, with Arabic phrases scrawled on it and ISIS flags nearby, Sky News reported, citing French legal sources.

The unnamed victim was a businessman at a local transportation company and the boss of a man arrested in connection with the attack.

Nearly simultaneously, two gunmen attacked two hotels in a Tunisian coastal town popular with British tourists, killing at least 28 and wounding 36. The Health Ministry said the dead include Tunisians, Brits, Germans and Belgians.

A third attack killed at least 16 in a Shia mosque in Kuwait City. ISIS is comprised of Sunni Muslims, and its members have a long and bloody history with Shia Muslims, as evidenced by Al-Adnani’s call. The attack came immediately following Friday prayers.” Read more.

Libya: 30 More Christians Beheaded And Shot To Death For The Glory Of “Allah” By ISIS

04/19/2015 1 comment

These followers of Christ refused to worship this dreadful Beast. They refused to receive its “mark” or to bow down to its image. They chose, rather, to endure in Christ until the very end …

Matthew 5:11-12a, “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven …”

Matthew 10:22, “And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.”

Revelation 20:4, “… And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”

By Lydia Willgress, Mail Online – “A shocking new video appearing to show at least 30 Christians being beheaded and shot by ISIS in Libya has been released.

The 29-minute video, titled ‘Until It Came To Them – Clear Evidence’, shows dozens of militants holding two separate groups captive, thought to be in the south and the west of the country.

At least 16 men, described by Islamic State as the ‘followers of the cross from the enemy Ethiopian Church’, are lined up and shot in a desert area while 12 others are filmed being forced to walk down a beach before being beheaded.

This follows another video in February of the beheading of a group of 21 Coptic Christians on the beach in Libya, though that terrain was rockier than the one shown in the latest film.

It raises fears that ISIS is consolidating its presence on the ‘doorstep of Europe’, as Libya is just a few hundred miles from the coast of Italy.

Ethiopia was unable to confirm its citizens were killed in the footage but condemned the ‘atrocious act’, a government official said.

The video shows the men at the coast wearing Guantanamo-style orange jumpsuits and being held at the neck by fighters in combats with balaclavas covering their faces. The victims inland are forced to kneel as militants dressed in combats and green masks stand behind them holding rifles.

It starts with what it called a ‘history of Christian-Muslim relations’, which includes scenes of militants destroying churches, graves and icons.

A masked fighter in black then brandishes a pistol as he vows to kill Christians if they do not convert.” Read more.

Revelation 13:15, “The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.”

Qur’an Sura 8:12b, “… terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.”

Flashback: Islamic State Releases Video Showing Beheadings Of 21 Christians, Kidnaps Nearly Two Dozen More – “Islamic State jihadists have released a video showing the murder of 21 Egyptians, who they captured in Libya around Christmas. The Egyptians, dressed in orange jump suits, were beheaded after being forced down on the ground. The video appeared on the Twitter feed of a website that supports Islamic State. A caption on the five-minute video read: ‘The people of the cross, followers of the hostile Egyptian church.’ Before the killings, one of the militants stood with a knife in his hand and said: ‘Safety for you crusaders is something you can only wish for.’” Read more.

Flashback: Saudi Arabia ‘Justice’ Minister: Beheading Is Enshrined In Divine Islamic Laws, ‘We Cannot Change Them’ – “Saudi Arabia’s Justice Minister has defended tough Sharia punishments such as beheading, cutting off hands and lashing, claiming they ‘cannot be changed’ because they are enshrined in Islamic law. ‘These punishments are based on divine religious texts and we cannot change them,’ Mohammed Al Eissa reportedly said during a recent speech in Washington… ‘Islam is a religion of wisdom that calls for dialogue with other religious faiths and peaceful coexistence with other communities. [Edit ICA: Then why is there not one single Christian church in all of Saudi Arabia?]” Read more.
