Time Magazine Cover, Sunday, Sept. 23, 2001: The True, Peaceful Face Of Islam By Karen Armstrong.
Ms. Armstrong wrote: " The very word "Islam" which means "surrender", is related to the Arabic salaam, or peace." She went on babbling about how Muhammad was this peaceful prophet, and that Islam is this really special and peaceful religion. The entire article almost made me throw-up, you know just a little bit, sort of a heartburn burp.
I'm not sure where Karen Armstrong attained her information concerning Islam, or if she even understood what she was writing. Sure, she quotes surrah's from the Qu'ran, but if you don't read the entire Qu'ran, you can never ascertain it's true message. Check this article out on the Time Magazine website: www.time.com/time/printout/0,8816,175987,00.html , a warning however, keep a tissue handy, you'll need it to, well...you know!
Since 9/11/2001, you would think that America and the world would have come a long way in it's understanding of the true Islam, and it's intentions to literally force Sharia down the throats of civilized societies around the globe. But NO!!! If anything, the world has once again slipped into apathetic complacency regarding Islam. The picture above is a newspaper photo/article from the UK. As you can see this Imam, a Mr. Anjem Choudary has some rather disturbing ideas in mind for America's mother country, the United Kingdom. Considering that Imam Choudary is basically one more wacko Islamist, he is also the only honest Imam in the UK, and perhaps the world. Imam Choudary has no problem telling the people what Islam, and Sharia are all about. Keep in mind, this guy is the Grand Poo bah of Muslims in England. Imam Choudary comes right out and says " Islam does not mean peace. Islam means submission."
After 9/11, George Bush made it perfectly clear to the world that Islam is a peaceful religion. Well, George Bush was wrong, dead wrong. However, Barack Hussein Obama also made it official when he declared that Islam is a religion of peace, and followed that up with, "America is not now at war with Islam, and never will be at war with Islam". President George Bush, was duped, but Barack Obama, knows full well, that America is in a holy war against Islam. A war that America did not instigate, but one we will be engaged in, until the end of time, or until Muslims convert to Christianity, which ever come first. Please forgive me, there is one more alternative, and that is the entire human population bows to Allah, Mohammad and converts to Islam. The latter of course is what the Islamic followers would prefer to take place. Although, killing massive amounts of Jews and Christians in the process won't deter them a bit. In my opinion, the events of 9/11, and the ensuing Mega-Mosque construction near Ground Zero are just warnings to the American people what will happen if we do not submit to Islam and Sharia Law. Taking over the West (America) is best done by non-violent measures, but as we all know, Islam is not opposed to violence and the murder of innocents. You see, there are no innocent Infidels as far as Islam is concerned.
This Imam Anjem Choudary has praised the 9/11 hijackers, and he has also called for the execution of Pope Benedict. In his own words: " The Qu'ran is full of, you know, jihad is the most talked about duty in the Qu'ran other than tawid--belief, nothing else is mentioned more than the topic of fighting." According to Imam Choudary, jihadists and Islamic terrorists are merely following core Islamic teachings and that Islam is much more than a religion. Imam Choudary said: " This particular belief (Islam), is more than just a religion, he declared, it is not just a spiritual belief. It is, in fact an ideology which you believe in and you struggle for and you are willing to even die for, because you believe in that: That is your whole life." "There you have it, right from the horse's mouth, as it were"! Imam Choudary is known as the most hated man in England and he relishes that title. Imam Choudary pledges to continue his rallies calling for the overthrow of the entire British system, and replace it with Islamic Sharia Law. That conversion is happening at an alarming rate. It should be noted, in a recent interview , Imam Choudary said he will see, or would like to see the Islamic flag flying above Parliament in the U.K. and above the White House in America. Think it can't happen, think again.
I heard a commentary by Charles Krauthammer on an O'Reilly Factor, Charles said there will never be an Islamic flag flying above the White House in America. I say, "never say never"!!! After all, who would have ever thought America would have a closet Muslim for a president? Who would have ever thought that America would be losing Christian churches and gaining Muslim Mosques? Who would have ever thought that saying something anti-Muslim would be considered hate speech? Who would have ever thought that there would be a Sharia court in Texas, of all places? Yes, believe me, Texas. It's called the Texas Islamic Court. I'm thinking John Wayne is spinning in his grave about this one.
Our elected representatives have turned "America the Beautiful" into "America the Apologetic and Apathetic". As each day passes, America is becoming more Sharia compliant, and not enough people are paying attention to it. If as Aristotle once said, "tolerance is the final virtue of a dying society", then America's tolerance and political correctness is murdering this nation. I'm not sure it can be stopped. Perhaps this is how it is all to come to an end. The United States of America, once thought to be the last bastion of freedom and light for the world slowly but surely slipping to mediocrity. Is this America's final destiny? Are we on the path to becoming a third world nation, without Jesus, without the One True God? Will our children's children be bowing to Allah, instead of worshipping the Christ? If this is America's future, I pray I won't see it in my lifetime. However, I see it happening already.
There is one chance for America, it is the mid-term election this coming November. It is imperative if we are to save this country from both the Muslims and their Progressive minions. Please get out and vote, vote your heart, vote your conscience, vote Christian Conservative, from your local officials, to Washington, D.C. representatives. We as Americans are at a crucial crossroad, we either vote to save our country, or to turn it over to the most evil on the planet. It really is up to Americans to save America.
God Help Us
