‘Trouble for the West’ as Egyptians On Pace to Elect Muslim Brotherhood

Once again the dither-in chief failing to act has put the U.S. in a more dangerous place.  ‘Trouble for the West’ as Egyptians On Pace to Elect Muslim Brotherhood.

The weapons in the Egyptian military arsenal include, the F-16 fighter planes, attack helicopters, frigates, advanced Sidewinder and Hellfire missiles and Abrams battle tanks – purchased mostly with U.S. Foreign Military Financing (FMF).

If Islam is the “religion of peace” why the crossed swords on their images?

The billions of dollars in U.S. aid to Egypt via FMF has remained gratis, says Dan Darling, Europe & Middle East Military Markets Analyst at Forecast International Inc., a U.S.-based defence market research firm.

You just have to love  Obama. Now all of this state of the art hardware will be controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood, who will undoubtedly attempt to establish a theocracy.  Way to go Obie, making the world safer one blunder at a time. 

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

Westerners obsess over destruction of one book, ignore destruction of many human lives

CreepingSharia

Raymond Ibrahim, associate director of the Middle East Forum, nails it: Destroying One Koran vs. Destroying Many Christians Which is Worse?


The now infamous Koran burning by Florida pastor Terry Jones has created hysteria in the Muslim world. In Afghanistan alone, some twenty people, including U.N. workers, have been killed and beheaded to screams of “Allahu Akbar!” Western leaders around the globe—including Obama and members of Congress—have unequivocally condemned Jones’ actions (without bothering to point out that freedom of expression is a prized American liberty). Many are even blaming the deaths in Afghanistan directly on Jones; Bill O’Reilley says he has “blood on his hands.”

Yet, as Western leaders rush to profess their abhorrence at what one American did to one inanimate book, let’s take a quick look at what many Muslims are doing to many living and breathing Christians around the Islamic world—to virtually no media coverage or Western condemnation:

  • Afghanistan: A Muslim convert to Christianity was seized and, according to sharia’s apostasy laws, awaits execution.
  • Bangladesh: A Christian man was arrested for distributing Bibles near Muslims. Since Wednesday, thousands of Muslims have been rioting, injuring dozens—not because of Jones, but in protestation of women’s rights.
  • Egypt: A Muslim mob burned down another Coptic church and dozens of Christian homes; when Christians protested, the military opened fire on them while crying “Allahu Akbar,” killing nine. Another mob cut a Christian man’s ear off “according to sharia.”
  • Ethiopia: Muslims went on a rampage burning down nearly 70 churches, killing at least one Christian, and dislocating as many as 10,000. Christians living in Muslim majority regions are being warned to either convert to Islam, abandon their homes, or die.
  • Malaysia: Authorities detained and desecrated thousands of Bibles.
  • Pakistan: Two Christians were shot to death as they exited church; a Christian serving life in prison for “blasphemy” died in his cell under suspicions of murder.
  • Saudi Arabia: An Eritrean Christian has been arrested for sharing his faith with Muslims and is facing the death penalty; other missionaries continue to languish in Saudi prisons.
  • Somalia and Sudan: Christian girls—including a mother of four—were recently abducted, raped, and killed for embracing Christianity.

It should be borne in mind that none of these atrocities were performed in retaliation to Jones’ Koran burning; they’re just business as usual in the Muslim world. Moreover, the above list is but a quick and cursory sampling of the very latest in Christian suffering under Islam. Were one to include persecution from just a few months back, one could also mention the jihadist attack on a Baghdad church, killing 52 Christians; the New Year’s eve Coptic church explosion, killing 21; Muslim rampages that destroyed several churches in Indonesia, Nigeria, and the Philippines; Iran’s “round up” of some 70 home-worshipping Christians; and Kuwait’s—a nation that owes its very existence to U.S. war sacrifices—rejection to build a church.

Then there are the countless atrocities that never make it to any media—the stories of persistent, quiet misery that only the victims and local Christians know.

One would have thought that all this was at least equally deserving of media attention and Western condemnation as the burning of a Koran. Worse, whereas only Jones is responsible for his actions, many of the aforementioned savageries—arresting and executing Christian missionaries and Muslim apostates, destroying or outlawing churches, seizing and desecrating not one but thousands of Bibles—are carried out at the hands of Muslim authorities and governments deemed U.S. “friends-and-allies.”

Such is the surreal and increasingly irrational world we live in, where irate Muslims and groveling Westerners obsess over the destruction of one book while ignoring the destruction of many human lives; where a guaranteed and hard-earned American right—freedom of expression—receives a lot of condemnatory huffing and puffing from those charged with protecting it, while murderous and barbarous—in a word, evil—behavior is devoutly ignored.


Pastor arrested for sharing gospel with Muslims…in Kansas

creepingsharia

Like in Dearborn, Michigan, proselytizing – or merely talking to Muslims on public streets appears to be against the law in the U.S. – just as it is under Islamic sharia rule.

Oh say it isn’t so Tin Man, There’s No Free Speech in the Land of Oz

A pastor is facing a court date after sharing the gospel with Muslims — in Kansas.

About 14 people, including three senior pastors, went to the local mosque to distribute to Muslims packets containing the books of John and Romans in English and Arabic and a DVD with testimonies of former Muslims. Pastor Mark Holick of Spirit One Christian Center was one of those passing out the packets to people leaving the mosque.

Can Obama Please Both Arabs and Israelis?

The citizens of the Middle East aren’t looking for lofty speeches — they want U.S. support for their preferred policies.

A few months ago, I appeared on a popular Egyptian television talk show — al-Qahira al-Youm – that addressed front-page stories in the press. One of the questions I was asked surprised me. The Egyptian press had apparently translated a Washington Post article about President Barack Obama’s private spiritual life and his regular consultation with Christian ministers. Seemingly alarmed, the host asked me to provide comment.

After a sharp debate about religious freedom, the Green Bay City Council agreed Tuesday to allow a mosque in a former bait-and-tackle shop on Velp Avenue.

It is believed to be the first official Muslim house of worship in the city.

Members of a group called the Church of Islam told aldermen that they have been meeting in leased facilities that have become too cramped and uncomfortable.

Do you know what a dhimmi is?

by creepingsharia

Last year around this time, we posted a video titled The Dhimmi Contract along with an article titled Embracing Dhimmitude.

If you weren’t a reader then, take a moment to review the video, then read the post below from RenewAmerica.com.


By Victor Sharpe

Ask one hundred people in the United States what a dhimmi is and perhaps two or three might know. In Europe the number would be slightly higher because of latent memories of battles fought against invading Moslem armies over the span of hundreds of years.
