Wrong Flag, Wrong Issues Evidence Christian Hypocrisy In Charleston

In no way am I disregarding, demeaning, or belittling the death of the nine people murdered in a church in Charleston, S.C. Their lives are not insignificant. And grief, sorrow, anger, and desire for justice are all right and healthy responses. But the response to these murders makes obvious two alarming realities about American Christians.

It’s astounding and disturbing to observe selective displays of public grief and prayer in America. What does it take to be publicly mourned by Christians—to be shot in church?

When and where was Christian “solidarity” displayed over Memorial Day weekend after 56 people were shot in Chicago, of whom 12 died including a 4-year-old girl and three teenagers? Where was the public display of Christian prayer and hand-wringing after 23 people in New York City and 28 in Baltimore were shot, including 9 killed, over the same weekend?

The concern many express is that such public displays of “solidarity” for the 9 killed in a church comes across as Pharisaical no matter how well-intentioned such prayers may be. The Pharisees loved to pray publicly but did little to nothing to recognize their direct responsibility for others’ suffering, most of which was preventable.

For everyone who travels to Charleston to pray, drive north a few hours to visit Holy Islamville. South Carolina and New York are the only two states that boast Shari’a compliant towns.

For politicians and concerned citizens, the flag that Nikki Haley and every liberal and conservative American should be most concerned about is not red, white, and blue; it’s black. Yet most South Carolinians claim complete ignorance of the reality that Shari’a law freely exists in their state (at least Rep. Chip Limehouse is trying to outlaw it), which causes far greater suffering than the murder of nine people.

Google these three pastors to understand what Shari’a law means for Saeed Abedini in Iran, Umar Mulinde in Uganda, and James McConnell in Northern Ireland. These men are just a few to “pray for,” have moments of silence for, and march in unison for, and then forget about when it’s time to dash off to little league or quote German pastor Dietrich Bonheoffer in Sunday School.

Earth to Nikki Haley and South Carolinians: murder isn’t caused by the Confederate flag or by street signs. But in the name of Allah, the Qur’an requires everyone who rejects Shari’a law to be murdered. Why the silence about a Shari’a compliant town existing in South Carolina?

The foremost problem in America is the willful ignorance and apathy of American Christians who refuse to acknowledge that the blood of millions of Christians—worldwide—is on their hands. Christians willfully ignore the reality that the politicians they vote for and continue to support—including Senators Lindsey Graham, John McCain, and many others (even Common Core supporter Jeb Bush) are “besties” with Qatar Islamists deliberately funding and killing Christians.

Lindsey Graham’s financial connection to Qatar is no secret. Nor is his advocacy to fund and train “moderate rebels” who deliberately behead Christians (as Muhammad did) and kidnap and sell girls under nine years old at sex slave bazaars. It’s public knowledge that the American government orchestrated and has funded Iran’s nuclear weapons program since 1953; yet Christians remain silent about the politicians they endorse who continue to violate Article III of the U.S. Constitution.

Christians continue to endorse politicians who have sent $12 billion to Iran over the last few months, and 75 percent of foreign aid goes to countries that commit genocide against Jews and Christians and violate women’s and girls’ human rights.

There is nothing wrong with prayer. But the sacrilegious publicly pray, wringing their hands, selectively grieving over a few deaths when they claim ignorance about the millions of deaths and incalculable human suffering for which they are directly responsible. Do Christians seriously believe traveling to Washington, D.C. to eat Eggs Benedict at national prayer breakfasts or publicly praying in Charleston, S.C., will free imprisoned American Christians and U.S. Marine Amir Hekmati (whom the Iranian government continues to torture)?

American Christians can idealize and quote Bonhoeffer all they want. But doing so while blaming the wrong flag, claiming ignorance about Islamville, and praying publicly about the murder of nine people only evidences willful hypocrisy.

The Germans of Goth and Ohrduf made the same excuses. And as he did in 1944, General George Patton would undoubtedly publicly vomit today for the same reasons. Christians, more than anyone else, are without excuse for the atrocities they fund, then deny, and then do nothing about.

Patton didn’t just fold his hands and close his eyes to appeal to heaven in the face of violence and blatant injustice. He didn’t focus on the wrong flag or street signs. Patton got up off of his knees, opened his eyes, and fought to liberate the oppressed.

New Poll: Majority Of American Muslims Want Sharia, Shocking Numbers On Jihad

On the heels of Barack Obama’s woeful mourning that most Americans have a “distorted impression” of Islam comes a new Fox News poll that won’t exactly help the president’s cause. Full disclosure… no, we don’t think the president is a Muslim. We think he’s a spineless appeaser. 

The poll finds that the majority of Islamic Americans agree that Muslims should be able to forego the Constitution and be governed instead by Sharia law. That’s right, Sharia.sharia

The same Sharia that says you can’t draw Muhammad, or insult him, or question his having slaves or being a pedophile. The same Sharia that says you must sympathize with terrorists. The same Sharia that says all Jews must be eliminated. The same Sharia that says you must convert, or you must die. THAT Sharia.

(We once wrote a post about how the Constitution and Sharia cannot ever coexist. Now would be a good time to open that article in a new tab for later, btw.)

The poll also found that 25% of Muslims in America agree that violence against Americans can be justified as part of global jihad, and 29% agree that violence against those who insult Islam is sometimes acceptable.

musimjihad

muslimviolence

Catch that? 1 in 4 American Muslims think jihad against YOU, America, is justified as a part of global jihad. ONE IN FOUR!

“Oh, well,” you say, “that’s just a Fox News poll, those numbers aren’t accurate.” Know what’s super scary? You’re probably right.

I mean, not everyone’s just going to tell a random survey taker that they’re totally cool with killing Americans if it’s in the name of jihad… cuz, you know, that sounds kinda crazy. So probably more than a few participants lied. This is only a representation of those brave few actually willing to admit they believe what the Qur’an says and stand by it.

For the record, estimates of the number of Muslims currently living in the U.S. range anywhere from 5 million to 12 million. That means anywhere from 1.25 to 3 MILLION Muslim Americans are good with jihad – with killing – YOU. Because you’re not a Muslim. Therefore, you should die. Sharia.

Moderate Islam is a myth, folks. Time we tell the world the truth:

Here’s What Islam Teaches About Jews And Gays: Behead Them

It may surprise most Americans to learn that according to a 2014 FBI report on hate crimes in America, Jews are the most targeted victims of hate crimes in America. Not blacks, not Muslims, not gays–but Jews.

In fact, Americans might even be surprised to learn which college campuses are the most dangerous to be a Jewish student on—on American soil.

Under Islam, no Jews exist. Nor do gays, trans-Jenners, or lesbians. They’re dead.

Go to Saudi Arabia, the land of the Bush Dynasty’s longtime friends and allies—and you will find that no Jews are allowed to live or operate businesses there. The Shari’a ruled government, what former president G.W. Bush claimed was a “peaceful religion,” recently sentenced a blogger to receive 1,000 lashes for criticizing Islam.

Saudi Arabia has not only funded ISIS, which is committing widespread genocide against Christians–but it continues to publicly execute people for allegedly committing minor crimes, and even no crimes (54 people were killed in the first three months of 2015). In fact, it is nearly impossible for any non-Muslim to own or operate a business in Saudi Arabia.

No Jews exist in Iran, Egypt, Libya, Algeria, and many more Islamic-controlled countries. Nor do gays— because the Qur’an instructs it.

Jews, gays, and trans-anything-gender people have no “civil rights” under Islam. Like everyone else, they must either submit to Islam or die. But they are especially forbidden and targeted for death — because the Qur’an instructs it.

Muhammad declared that Jews are the “worse of Allah’s creation” and “cursed and transformed into apes and swine.” (Surah 2:6; 5:60; 7:166; 8:55-56; 98:6).

Little children are taught in Saudi Arabia that Jews are the source of evil and are pigs and apes. See for yourself:

Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) best articulates Islamic teachings on gays:

Homosexuality is a moral disorder. It is a moral disease, a sin and corruption… no person is born homosexual, just like no one is born a thief, a liar or murderer. People acquire these evil habits due to a lack of proper guidance and education. There are many reasons why it is forbidden in Islam. Homosexuality is dangerous for the health of the individuals and for the society. It is a main cause of one of the most harmful and fatal diseases… It is the most un-natural way of life. Homosexuality leads to the destruction of family life.

Keep in mind that former president Jimmy Carter lauds this man and claims ISNA was “key to peace” when he gave the keynote at ISNA’s annual conference last year.

Listen to learn more about Islamic teachings that endorse Jew hatred. Hitler mirrored Muhammad’s treatment of Jews. Jews were not the first or the last to be killed by Hitler; but as they were in Germany, Jews are the primary target for hate in 21st Century America.

‘Islamaphobes’ ARE FOR Protecting Human Rights Of Girls–Can Our Opponents Say The Same?

Do the name-callers who label people “Islamaphobic” support Qur’an-instructed violence against women and girls?

To be “anti-Islam” (and “anti-Shari’a”) is to reject submission to Allah and the Qur’an. To be anti-Islam is to be for protecting woman’s rights and human rights. To be anti-Islam is to advocate for children who are powerless and voiceless, to liberate everyone enslaved by Islamic totalitarian ideology.

There is nothing bigoted, racist, or fearful about opposing a political ideology that rejects universally accepted human rights laws.

If the European Court on Human Rights has repeatedly ruled that Shari’a law is “incompatible with the fundamental principles of democracy,” then why defend it?

What alternatives are name-callers suggesting that “Islamaphobes” should consider? None. Defenders of Islam (and Shari’a law) are anti-women and anti-girls. They endorse:

  • Female genital mutilation (genitals being cut and sewn shut),
  • Honor killings (fathers or brothers kill their daughters/sisters),
  • Child marriage (girls under age 12 are married to adult men),
  • Slavery (girls are sold for “protection” by their parents and/or kidnapped and sold at slave bazaars),
  • Shari’a Councils (Imams marry girls – even for one hour– to men, then divorce them only to marry them to another man and divorce them again),
  • Wife abuse and domestic violence (husbands are instructed to beat their wives as a form of punishment); husbands are permitted to rape their wives,
  • Non-legal status for women who are considered property (a wife’s legal rights equate to only half of her husband’s),
  • Discrimination, punishment, and death for everyone based on sexual and religious orientation, especially if they will not “convert” to Islam.

Those who oppose Islam support policies and laws that protect women and children from violence — exposing the evils of child marriage, slavery, female genital mutilation, honor killings, and institutionalized prostitution and sex trafficking. The least safe countries for women are Muslim-majority countries (2012 World Economic Forum report).

Those who oppose Islam seek to aid and protect refugees who have survived genocide and slave bazaars (Open Doors reports that 2014 was the worst year in the modern era of the persecution of Christians).

Being anti-Islam equates to supporting democratic freedoms including free speech–NOT hate speech–and demanding that government officials who have taken oaths to defend the U.S. Constitution actually protect citizens from Shari’a law.

Naming and fighting evil is rooted in love — love that seeks to safeguard the innocent and offer an alternative to those influenced by evil. Out of love, people name and fight evil, which seeks to destroy what is good, in order to safeguard and promote that which is life-giving.

As Margaret Thatcher once articulated, those who are anti-Islam are for “… a society where people are free to make choices, to make mistakes, to be generous and compassionate. This is what we mean by a moral society…”

Those who mislabel supporters of freedom and human rights advocates as “hatemongers,” “fear mongers,” “bigots,” “ignorant,” or “phobic” of some kind only express irrational hatred without offering an alternative to their diatribe. Worse still, name-callers enable, permit, and even ensure an increasing number hate crimes; and victims’ voices, especially girls’, will continue to be silenced.

Gone Girls: Sewn Up, Spit Out, 9 Year-Old Girl Commodities

Girls between ages 1-9 are kidnapped, sold, and bought at slave bazaars, then married and remarried throughout Islamic-controlled areas. While ISIS may be orchestrating most of the child sex trafficking and condones institutionalized violence against women as a “righteous act,” it is important to understand this is not extremism and mirrors Muhammad’s behavior and instruction.

Muhammad did everything the Qur’an permits: marrying multiple women (4:3), including slaves (4:24) and prepubescent girls (65:4), and beating wives as a form of punishment (4:34). It is no coincidence that no 9 year-old girls can be found in Syria, Iraq, Libya, and other areas experiencing humanitarian crises. This is Islam.

Muhammad’s last wife, Aisha, was 9 when he consummated the marriage, was 6 years old when he married her, and he punched her in the chest (Sahih Muslim 4:2127).

As a result of the Arab Spring, most Iraqi Christian and Yezidi 1-9 year-old girls are kidnapped and sold, categorized, stripped, shipped naked, examined upon arrival by their buyer, and distributed like produce or packages of beef—in groups of hundreds.

Less expensive than livestock, “sabaya” (girls sold into slavery) are worth less than $200.

Once they are purchased, they are held down, violated, and either discarded or returned to be resold and remarried—up to 20 times—each.

It should come as no surprise that as Islam expands, slavery also expands. In some cases, parents are able to buy back their kidnapped daughter for approximately the equivalent of one year’s salary.

Others are less fortunate. Parents are forced by Islamists to marry their daughters to jihadists in exchange for their family’s protection; some are given high dowries.

Imams encourage the remarrying of young girls as “virgins.” After the child is violated, in order to be resold and remarried, she undergoes surgery to “restore her virginity.” “Hufaad,” or female genital mutilation (FGM), is performed in many Islamic-controlled countries; if a girl’s vagina is not sewn shut, no man will marry her. Her financial worth lies solely in her virginity, proven by the surgical mutilation of her body.

In many cases, vaginas are sealed closed, leaving only a tiny opening to urinate. If the sutures are too tight, the girl will be unable to urinate or menstruate, and dies. In many cases, girls go through shock, and they die.

Under Shari’a, the Imam or the husband’s word alone is enough to grant a divorce. The girl can be remarried to another man for an hour and divorced again—legally under Shari’a. Undergoing FGM is often not a singular occurrence; and the Qur’an condones forced sex, which is not considered “rape” or “violence.”

In Western societies, these are illegal acts of pedophilia, sex-trafficking, and prostitution as well as human rights violations. Yet, under the auspice of Shari’a Councils in Rotherham, U.K., Imams marry girls to men for marriages that last for one hour. In Manchester, U.K., girls and women are trafficked against their will, expected to be married at least 10 times—each.

Associated with child marriages and sex trafficking, health clinicians from the U.K. in Libya document growing numbers of forced abortions, miscarriages, stillbirths, and labor complications as well as the spread of sexually transmitted diseases.

Nine year-old girls are pregnant–some after being raped by multiple men.

Doctors have observed that young girls do not understand what is happening to them, don’t know what sex is, don’t know what pregnancy is, and/or don’t even know that they are pregnant or why they are bleeding. But they do know excruciating pain.

Older Kurdish girls are killing themselves; ISIS revels in posting photos online of them dead, after suicide.

Few if any of these girls can read or write. They are invisible—yet repurposed as profitable commodities.

Destroying society, culture, and the family by killing, kidnapping, enslaving, and prostituting girls is one method Islamists use to eliminate existing cultural and social norms and implement Islam as the “civilization alternative.”

To immediately help defenseless girls, donate money and needed items to people living and working directly with survivors and refugees. Here are a few organizations:

A Demand for Action

International Association for Human Values

Iraqi Christian Relief Council

Preemptive Love

Roads of Success

Wadi

WorldVision

Yazda
