Islam's Growing Influence on the United States
Is Islam a religion of peace?
“A religion of peace” - this is what President George W. Bush called Islam. Yet the actions of this so-called “religion of peace” prove that this attribution is a misnomer. Instead of peace, Muslims want to kill everyone who is not a Muslim. “From its inception, Islamic civilization has been at war with its neighbors. The Muslim faith has spread throughout centuries by the sword and violent jihad” (Kuhner, World Tribune, 7/14/10).
It is not difficult to document the many atrocities committed by followers of Islam since its origin, beginning with Muhammad in the 7th century and on-going today. Islamic terrorists have carried out 15,664 deadly terror attacks since the horrific 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center (The Religion of Peace).
Moreover, Islam’s growing militancy and intimidation tactics are causing western governments to treat Islam with kid gloves and cave in to its demands. What we are witnessing is a pervasive Islamic penetration into every aspect of American life.
For example, some public schools require students to take classes about Islam, and some textbooks portray Islam in a favorable light while denigrating Judaism and Christianity. Colleges invite Muslim speakers who condemn Israel but speakers who defend Israel are either banned from speaking or shouted down in the name of free speech.
Muslim-only enclaves, Islamic youth programs, and the number of Mosques are growing in US cities.
Media in the US scrupulously avoids negative references to Islam. At the same time mainstream media condemns Israel both for its “illegal occupation” of the “Palestinian homeland” and for causing a great “humanitarian crisis” in Hamas-ruled Gaza.
Movies, TV and the Arts have no problem portraying Jews and Christians in a negative light or even promoting blasphemous so-called “art”. But don’t try that with Islam or heads might roll - literally!
The Obama administration changed the "Global War on Terror" to the "Overseas Contingency Operation” and they deleted references to Islamic extremism from national-security policy.
Mr. Obama seeks to coddle the Islamic world. The result is that Iran is on the verge of acquiring the bomb. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad — like all fanatics — is a serious man. He vows to slay the Jews of Israel once and for all. Mr. Obama is not some grand peacemaker. Rather, he is ... playing right into the blood-soaked hands of America's enemies (Kuhner, World Tribune, 7/14/10).
Islam’s tentacles have wrapped themselves around American society. Many Americans still think that Islam is a “religion of peace”.
Editor’s Comments: As believers in the Jewish Messiah to the world, we pray for our Muslim brothers and sisters deceived by the god of Islam. Thanks to years of intercession from hundreds of thousands of believers—Christian and Messianic—there are more and more stories of miraculous salvations. Isaiah 19 speaks of the coming day when our Arab cousins will worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
True shalom—true peace—does not come from compromising the truth or coddling those who commit such hated violence; it comes from boldly speaking the truth (Isaiah 45:19), standing firm (Zechariah 8:16) and being ready with a hand of love (Ephesians 4:15).
