Freedom to Go 'n Grow Together in Christ
for you are a people holy to the LORD your God. Out of all the peoples on the face of the earth, the LORD has chosen you to be his treasured possession.
Deuteronomy 14:2 (NIV)
He remembers his covenant forever, the word he commanded, for a thousand generations, the covenant he made with Abraham, the oath he swore to Isaac. He confirmed it to Jacob as a decree, to Israel as an everlasting covenant: “To you I will give the land of Canaan l as the portion you will inherit.”
Psalms 105:8-11 (NIV)
Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many."
Matthew 24:4-5 (NIV)
Islam and Israel
(09/30/2016) Islam's 'Western Liberal Values'? There are no "Western liberal values" in Islam.
(09/29/2016) NJ 2nd Graders Taught ‘Allah Loves Those Who Make Themselves Clean.’ There is pushback, at least.
(09/27/2016) Europe Just Outlawed Criticism of Islam! This headline is an exaggeration, although it seems to be the direction Europe is heading, along with Canada. And to be blunt, the USA as well, although ours will be a tougher nut to crack.
(09/20/2016) Defending Ourselves to Death. Why, despite their good intentions, Israeli leaders are failing the country. And sadly, the world calls Israel the oppressors. Read the article and then ask yourself if we would tolerate such things in the USA. Not today, certainly, but we are already seeing a certain loosening of standards when it applies to Muslims. We have definitely started on the path that Europe is far along and the Democrat party seems determined to accelerate our journey down that path.
(09/18/2016) NYPD: Muslim Woman Set on Fire Not Target of Hate Crime. (The perps also attacked a number of non-Muslims). But we certainly have a lot of people in our media who are desperate to find hate crimes against Muslims.
(09/17/2016) Germany Promotes Non-Muslim Women Wearing Hajib. 'These are the actions of a conquered people.' Germany seems to be surrendering without a fight. At the very least her government is. It will be interesting to see the next election results.
(09/17/2016) Obama's Fantasy Eid-al-Adha. As he touts Islam’s fellowship and love, ISIS celebrates by hanging infidels from meat hooks. If you refuse to properly identify a problem, you cannot properly solve the problem. Elementary. And that is why political correctness makes it almost impossible to solve many problems, including the problem of Islam.
(09/17/2016) London’s Islamist-Linked Mayor Tells U.S. Audience: ‘Immigrants Shouldn’t Assimilate.’ If there is one requirement that we should have for potential immigrants, it is that they wish to become Americans; that is, they wish to assimilate. There is absolutely no reason whatsoever that we should be admitting people who don't wish to assimilate, except for the fact that they are likely to vote Democrat, before and after becoming citizens.
(09/16/2016) Obama Nominates First Muslim-American Judge to Federal Court. No Muslim should serve as a judge in America unless they renounce all forms of Sharia law. Sharia is totally incompatible with Western law.
(09/14/2016) Christian Slaves, Muslim Masters. Good article that covers material that I need to add to our Islam pages.
(09/14/2016) US Media Coverup of ISIS Sex Slave Prisons: Christian Girls Fed from Dog Bowls, Raped, Dismembered and Sent in Bags to Parents. On the one hand, maybe we don't want too many details. On the other hand, it is essential to know just what we are dealing with. The media seems determined to minimize this.
(09/13/2016) German Officials Encourage Women to Wear Sneakers to Outrun Migrant Rapists. In America these days we can't even say that women should not get drunk at parties or avoid walking in dark, deserted areas at night. If we do, we are blaming the victim. For Germany, what would be effective is to have women carry.
(09/11/2016) Fifteen Years After 9/11, and America Still Sleeps. How much worse will the destruction and death have to be to wake us up? Good Question. Is God trying to get our attention? We seem to be doing a pretty good job of ignoring him.
(09/11/2016) Fifteen Years After 9/11, Blindness to the Islamist Threat Is Official Policy. Maybe this can be changed.
(09/03/2016) Exposing 5 Little Known Facts about Islam Politicians and the Media Are Deliberately Concealing from You. If you have already read this site's pages on Islam, you will know most (but not all!) of this stuff. Is the MSM "deliberately concealing" or are they just woefully uninformed? I would argue that they are deliberately uninformed - that is they ignore the truth about Islam because they don't want to know that truth.
(08/29/2016) How the Clinton Campaign Tried to Explain Away Huma’s Radical Islamic Ties is Laughable. Apparently, the fact that she was an editor for a radical Islamic magazine for 12 years doesn't mean anything because she was just a "figurehead." That is certainly comforting to know. Note: I'm having to resort to a lot of sarcasm because the truth is getting to be absurd.
(08/27/2016) Angela Merkel: Muslim Migrants didn’t bring “Islamist Terrorism” to Germany. In order to solve a problem, the most important step of all is to correctly identify that problem. A corollary - and this applies not just to Islamic terrorism, but to other issues such as "global warming" - is that when you have a solution that you wish to apply (or wish to avoid a solution at all!), misidentify the problem so that your desired solution, or lack of solution, conforms to that "problem." And as I write this, I ask myself why I keep having to put words in quotes. It is because many in America - including most academics, politicians and the media - misuse words deliberately in order to promote a particular agenda. That agenda is uniformly progressive. I cannot think of a single counter example, except possibly "pro-life." The problem with that example is that pro-lifers may use that term, but the media typically uses "anti-abortion" (which is OK) or "anti-choice" (which is not).
(08/25/2016) According to CAIR: The Constitution Says Government Can’t Study or Criticize Islam. Isn't the Constitution amazing? For those on the Left, the Constitution means anything they want it to mean.
(08/24/2016) I Dhimmi: Sharia Considerations of a Day in the Life of a Non-Muslim. Here is a "day in the life" journal that indicates how one's day would be different if one were a Dhimmi (Christian or Jew) living under Islam. Note that the situation is worse for Kafirs (other non-believers) under Islam. Sadly, few people realize just how much their life would change for the worse if they lived under Islam. This is an excellent thought exercise.
(08/24/2016) ISIS Tosses Four More Gay Men from Top of Mosul Building. More news from the "religion of peace." Where are the vast masses of "moderate Muslims" condemning this? I'm sure there are some, but ....
(08/24/2016) Anniversary of 1929 Hebron Massacre and Ethnic Cleansing of Jews. Did you even know about the massacre of Jews at Hebron in 1929? I sure didn't. I've only heard of Hebron in the context of those horrible Jews oppressing the peaceful Palestinians. /sarc
(08/23/2016) What’s So Un-Islamic about ISIS? Answer: not much. Check it out.
(08/22/2016) Q: How Does an Islamist Get Elected to State Legislature? A: Watch This. Actually, this being America, there is no reason why a bunch of Muslims can't elect a Muslim to the legislature. But the Somali community in Minneapolis has been a breeding ground for terrorists - most thankfully going back to Africa or the ME. So the real question is: why did we let all these people into America? People who have no desire whatsoever to become Americans?
(08/21/2016) How can these revelations about top aide Huma Abedin not end Hillary’s chances? Simply because the MSM will ignore them. They care about papers conservatives wrote in grad school and before, but Huma Abedin's radical Islamist connections are going to be dismissed as "ancient history."
(08/21/2016) Palestinian who gave medical aid to Jewish terror victims faces persecution. I can understand why "moderate Muslims" might want to keep a low profile, especially after reading this. But the big question is: Is radical Islam the only problem, or is the problem Islam itself? Fortunately, we don't have to answer this question before acting. Whatever the answer to the question, radical Islam must be dealt with first. Maybe in dealing with the radicals - or at least attempting to - we will find the answer to the question.
(08/19/2016) Saudi Teen Put in Cage for Kissing American Student. Of course the teen is female. Under Islam, male teens are permitted to do almost anything. Check out our page on Women Under Islam.
(08/17/2016) California Church Service Disrupted by Mob of Muslims Chanting “Allahu Akbar”! I am very disappointed in this headline. There was no "mob," and no chanting. Someone shouted it through a bullhorn from a passing car. Islam is a major problem, but excessive hyperbole is not useful.
(08/17/2016) Q: How Does an Islamist Get Elected to State Legislature? A: Watch This. This article, however, does not have to engage in hyperbole.
(08/17/2016) Muslim Leader Calls for Legalization of Polygamy, Compares to Gay Marriage! Again, this is the sort of thing conservatives said would happen if SSM were legalized. And to be honest, once we've opened the doors with the "love wins all" mantra, is their any justification for prohibiting polygamy?
(08/16/2016) The Ideologies of Islamism and Communism Aren’t That Different. No they aren't, which may explain why so many on the Left seem to be fans of Islam in spite of Islam's treatment of women, homosexuals, Jews and other non-believers.
(08/16/2016) Bowing to Islam: Dunkin’ Donuts: No Entry for Unescorted Women; Starbucks: No Entry for Women!. This is in Saudi Arabia.
(08/16/2016) What Do American Schools Teach About Islam? PC Or Nothing. PC in this case doesn't just include shading the truth here and there; outright lying is also involved.
(08/13/2016) ISIS Magazine: Jesus is ‘Slave of Allah.’ Well, I'm sure ISIS Magazine will change our minds about Jesus.
(08/12/2016) Egyptian loses Olympic judo match to Israeli, refuses to shake his hand. Supposedly there is an "Olympic Spirit." The crowd understands this by booing the Egyptian. If the IOC understood, they would boot the Egyptian team from the Olympics.
(08/10/2016) The Idaho Muslim Migrant Rape Case: How Could This Have Happened?The answer lies in…Islam. I believe we've referenced this case before, but this article covers a lot more - especially "the answer lies in" part.
(08/10/2016) Here are the Anti-Israel Tweets from Hijab-Wearing Olympian. I suppose a loyal American can be anti-Israel, but if you wish to change Americans attitudes towards Islam, it is better not to conform to the "stereotype."
(08/10/2016) Report: British Authorities Still Ignoring Massive Pakistani-Led Child Sex Ring. These crimes are a natural result of the Islamic attitude towards infidel women. I'm not saying that all Imams would support such crimes, but some do and provide Quranic justification as well. I think an addition web page for Islam is necessary. The page on Sharia Law does not cover everything.
(08/07/2016) Trump touches Minnesota’s untouchables - that is, Somali Muslims. This is a perfect case study of why we should NOT be letting in (m)any Muslims, and yet the powers that be do not look at reality, they look at things the way they wish they were - or the way they should be, according to themselves.
(08/07/2016) NYT compares life in Iran under the shah with life under the mullahs.
(08/06/2016) Israel LIVID Over Obama’s Statement on Iran Deal. Diogenes would never be able to find an honest man or woman anywhere in this administration.
(08/06/2016) Olympics: Lebanese team refuses to ride bus with Israeli team. Of course. After all, the Olympics is all about bringing everyone together, right?
(08/06/2016) Muslim Appreciation Month comes to California. Surely problems will disappear if we pretend those problems don't exist. That seems to be the message.
(08/05/2016) The Backward Pull of Islamic Health Practices. This is just the sort of information that our MSM likes to suppress for fear that we might think less of Muslims if we knew.
(08/03/2016) Is Islam Violent? Forget the Koran, Let's Talk About Islam's PROVEN Historical Record. Good idea. Base your evaluation on what is done rather than what is said.
(08/03/2016) Oberlin’s BDS-loving Jewish-conspiracy-spouting Prof. Joy Karega removed from teaching. Your mind will just boggle at the nonsense promoted by this "professor." The question has to be: why did she ever get a college job in the first place?
(08/02/2016) Why the Establishment Can’t Grasp the Nature of Islam. Actually, they can - they just choose not to. But the article contains a lot of useful information. Did you know that young men who delve deeper into the Christian faith become less prone to violence, while young men to delve deeper into Islam become more violent? It isn't an accident; it is a logical consequence of what those religions teach.
(08/01/2016) Pope Francis: ‘If I Speak of Islamic Violence, I Must Speak of Catholic Violence.’ One would think that the pope, of all people, would know that when it comes to violence, Catholic and Muslim teachings are worlds apart. I don't suppose that the pope sounds much different from the typical liberal these days.
(08/01/2016) Muslims in Italy, France Attend Mass to Show Solidarity. Although Muslims are a free to do pretty much anything to further the cause of Islam, it is hard to imagine that those participating are doing so from any intention other than good will. With all the negative news about Islam these days, it is nice to have something positive to report.
(07/31/2016) Palestinian Father Tries to Get Son Killed. This is what we are dealing with.
(07/29/2016) Creeping Sharia in Health Care. Don't believe it? This is another "read it and weep." We are far more accommodating to the religious beliefs of Muslims than we are to those of the still majority Christians in America. Canada is even worse.
(07/28/2016) Hollande Suggests France Will Finally Defend Its Culture Against ISIS. Does he really mean it? What about us here in the USA? Do we have a culture worth defending? Many, including a certain major political party, do not think so.
(07/28/2016) Democratic Faith Council Member: White Christian Men, Not Muslims, Should Apologize For Terrorism. Key word: Democrat.
(07/26/2016) Few Muslims Show Up at ‘Muslims Against ISIS’ Rally, as Usual. is anyone surprised? Since this rally was held in DC, the danger to moderate Muslims from their co-religionists was not great, and yet ....
(07/26/2016) The Latest: US condemns attack on French church. Sigh. Is condemning "in the strongest possible terms" going to impact ISIS in any manner? Probably. They will be even more emboldened. All talk, little action tends to have that effect.
(07/23/2016) When It Comes to Islam, Western Leaders Are Liars or Idiots. Nothing says they can't be both.
(07/23/2016) Civilization Jihad on Full Display at Vernon Hills Illinois High School. This goes beyond merely teaching about Islam.
(07/21/2016) Muslims Speak Up On Transgender Issues While Christians Hide. What is the matter? Do we fear being called names more than we fear the Lord?
(07/19/2016) Hamas-Affiliated CAIR Objects To See Something/Say Something Muslim Billboards. Where are all the moderate Muslims we are told exist? Actually, they do exist - they are the ones that put up the billboards that CAIR objects to. More power to them!
(07/17/2016) Pakistani Star's Brother 'Not Embarrassed' by Killing Her. Yet another "honor" killing. This does go a long way towards explaining why "moderate" Muslims are so silent. Why not leave the faith? Under Sharia, that is a capital crime as well. Even here in the USA we have had honor killings. How in the world can the Left express solidarity with Muslims? I have to qualify. I certainly would like to express my solidarity with Muslims who wish to leave the faith.
(07/17/2016) Slate: Journalists should stop labeling terrorists with toxic and discriminatory label of ‘terrorist.’ Well, we certainly wouldn't want to hurt anyone's feelings, would we?
(07/17/2016) Gingrich is right: Sharia is incompatible with US values. His 'solution' is sorely lacking, however. Expel Muslims who believe in Sharia? All the ones most likely to commit terrorist acts would simply lie.
(07/17/2016) Obama: ‘Push Back Against Hateful Ideologies That Twist and Distort Islam.’ Has Obama ever defended Christianity like he does Islam? I suppose that I have to take him at his word that he is a Christian, but other than his assertion, I see little other evidence that he is.
(07/15/2016) Newt: Deport Muslims in America who fail Shariah test. Of course this is totally insane, especially since Taqiya would permit the baddies to simply lie in order to stay in the country. But it raises an important issue. Is it possible to separate the what from the chaff, so to speak? And does it make sense to import large numbers of additional Muslims when we know that they will include a significant number of actual or potential terrorists? But Newt is right about something - Sharia law is totally incompatible with Western law and Western civilization.
(07/12/2016) Muslim Advocates President Won't Answer Question about Scrubbing Islamic Jihad from Govt & FBI Documents. Apparently, associating Islam or Muslims with 9/1, etc. is racist or discriminatory or something. We certainly can't have that!
(07/08/2016) America’s War to Defend Islam. Something does not compute here.
(07/07/2016) YouTube banned video on Islamic terrorism as ‘hate speech.’ I cannot verify - after all, they removed the video - but apparently telling the truth about Islam qualifies as "hate speech."
(07/06/2016) Obama on Eid: U.S. Experiencing 'Rise in Attacks Against Muslim Americans.' I believe there are more attacks on Jews in America but that doesn't fit the narrative.
(07/06/2016) Leaked German police report CONFIRMS surge in child rapes by migrants in swimming pools and admits: ‘We have grave cause for concern.’ Their solution? We'll educate them. Lack of education isn't the problem. Their religion and home country culture is the problem.
(07/05/2016) Syrian Refugees Admitted to U.S. More Than Doubled in June; 0.3 Percent Were Christians. Well, Christian refugees are less likely to ultimately vote for Democrats than Muslim refugees, so ....
(07/04/2016) Swiss do the unthinkable with Muslim population. If you don't 'integrate' into Swiss society, you cannot become a citizen. This means that the Swiss are NOT going to change their culture to accomodate Muslims. If you play by Swiss rules, you can become a citizen. Otherwise, no. It is obvious that Switzerland is not part of the EU. The question is, should we do the same?
(07/02/2016) Dear Barack: Why Ahmed, But Not Hallel? The 'clock boy' vs a 13 year old American citizen murdered by a Palestinian in Israel.
(07/01/2016) Shocking Polls Show What U.S. Muslims Think of U.S. Laws. Read the whole thing, more than one poll is being reported. Among other things, a plurality of US Muslims believe criticizing Islam should be a criminal offense. Does that qualify as "moderate?"
(07/01/2016) DHS sec stonewalls on 'purge' of intel 'offensive to Muslims.' If there is one place in government where politics should not intrude, it is in the area of intel. Well, in the Dept of Justice as well, but we already knew that the DOJ is now totally political.
