Thoughts on Texas Massacre

8 05 2015

Simple Islam front coverOh, that’s right, it was not a massacre. One security guard was shot in the leg. And a traffic cop took out two jihadists with a handgun…while they were firing A-K 47s. Otherwise it could have been a massacre of hundreds of people.

The private, ticketed free speech event was held in response to a radical Muslim event in the same venue on January 17. Most Americans do not have a clue about creeping Sharia in our country. Sharia requires the death penalty for “slandering the Prophet.” And it can be carried out by any Muslim with a knife or a gun, anytime, anywhere. Should America be paying better attention to this threat? Don’t judge Pamela Geller until you thoughtfully read her case for free speech.

Our Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, made this strange statement about Muslims in America facing discrimination: We in the administration and the government should give voice to the plight of Muslims living in this country and the discrimination that they face. And so I personally have committed to speak out about the situation that very often people in the Muslim community in this country face. The fact that there are 1.6 billion Muslims in the world and the Islamic faith is one about peace and brotherhood.

The claim that Islam is about peace and brotherhood would be hard to embrace for those beheaded in the name of Islam. Sharia condemns women to second-class status, supports slavery and imposes many other anti-freedom laws. Proponents believe it is higher law than the US Constitution.

Johnson’s claim of Muslims facing discrimination is also misleading. Every year the FBI statistics on religious hate crimes shows that Jews are targeted four to one compared to Muslims. Jonathan Tobin wrote an excellent article in Commentary Magazine:

FBI Statistics Belie Islamophobia Hysteria It has become an accepted trope of contemporary journalism that American Muslims are under siege and beset by hatred and prejudice. But the evidence for this conventional wisdom is lacking. The story line of Muslim persecution in the United States has always been a matter of anecdotes and perception, not facts.

So how should a Christian Zionist react to threats of “slandering the prophet”? I will comment on two levels. First is the instruction of Jesus to “love your enemies.” Forgiveness, grace and salvation are offered to every human who receives and obeys Jesus as the Son of God. I believe God grieved over the death of the two jihadists because they died without knowing Jesus and were condemned to hell. Jesus died for all who will trust Him, and we should love our enemies right into the Kingdom!

The second level is also Biblical. We owe no respect or tolerance to pagan gods. As I have asked before: “What part of ‘You shall have no other gods before Me’ don’t we get? America is confused by conflating these two levels. We should love individual Muslims, but expose the anti-Christ cult of Sharia Islam.

Free speech is a God-given liberty that is completely non-existent under the domination of Sharia law. The more faithful a Muslim becomes, the more he submits to and demands all submit to Sharia. It is not optional. Sharia is a system of world conquest, nothing less. Sharia is now here in America. What are you going to do?

He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, Colossians 1:13

Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. John 8:36
