It has begun to appear that wherever Muslims maintain large populations, a riot will break out and spread across the world; without the necessity of the proverbial “moment’s notice”. As I write this the world is being assaulted by reports and visuals of new Muslim “rebellions”, which are affecting renewed global violence; this time over unacceptable cartoons. In Lebanon and Syria, Danish embassies have already been torched over the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten’s publication of the Muhammaden cartoons in September.
Riots in Indonesia, Afghanistan, the Palestinian Gaza and multiple other countries are now occurring. Fox News is reporting that the Muslim violence is now spreading to attacks on Christians and Christian churches. For some reason, it took months for this information to get out to the general Muslim populations. It has become increasingly evident that they will take any and all opportunities to riot about anything and everything. By the way, when was the last time we saw Jews or Christians, who were offended by the daily assaults on their religions, burn down buildings over said offense; with many of these onslaughts (including vicious cartoons) regularly coming from Islam? Answer: It has never happened. In other words, Muslims believe they can “dish it out” but, “can’t take it”. Bullies and thugs inevitably act this way.
Granted the cartoons depicting the Muslim prophet Muhammad were and are in “bad taste”. But, there are many instances of bad taste, in every day life, and people on the planet who revel in presenting their puerile offerings. Also, it is the Islamic world (do you still remember the USS Cole bombing, the 1993 WTC attack, the 9/11 2001 WTC destruction, the 11 March 2004 Madrid train bombings, the 7 July 2005 London underground bombings etc…etc?) that is assailing all of us.
In order to establish its dominion over the Earth, Islam will threaten, blow things up, burn, pillage and murder everyone who gets in its way—including its own people. It also relishes its presentations of murders of “non-combatants”. Did you see the video-beheadings of Nick Berg, Paul Johnson, Eugene Armstrong, Daniel Pearl and South Korean Kim Sun-il? Reluctantly, I watched one of them. I felt it incumbent upon me to actually have the courage to view at least one. But, I admit I had no way to prepare myself for my reaction. The revulsion and overwhelming sorrow that I experienced stayed with me for days. This is the image that Muslims have presented and continue to portray to the rest of the world—an image of barbaric and unrelenting violence and mayhem it uses to achieve its goals. However, the Muslim prophet Muhammad (from the Koran) tells them to do it, when he commands: “Therefore when ye meet the unbelievers' in fight, smite them at their necks (047.004)” and “We would surely have punished those who disbelieved from among them with a painful punishment (048.25).”
Islamic Sheikh Abu Hamza Al-Masri writes in Allah's Governance on Earth: “Allah is the only one that must be worshipped on Earth, and the only way to guarantee this is to control all the land masses, air and sea and give Islam the proper channel to be heard by the people." Further, Sheikh Abdullah Azzam said: "Jihad and the rifle alone. No negotiations, No conferences and No dialogue!" The Holy Bible tells us: “Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.”—Matthew 7:20. The rotting fruits of these behaviors are now seen by everyone who is not yet blind.
I pose two questions that many have asked since the 9/11/2001 Twin Towers mass slaughter: “If there truly are moderate Muslims, where are they? If they aren’t in agreement with their militant and obsessed brethren, why aren’t they actively working to stop them?”
To top it off, Islamic Iran has now “officially” restarted its full-scale nuclear weapons programs and its President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is reported to have gleefully said: “Our enemies can’t do a damned thing!” Forget about foolish and trivial “global warming” arguments. A madman with nuclear bombs can (and very possibly will try to) destroy the world. Evil delights only in its own purpose. And from all rational observations, it is bound and determined to force itself, by whatever means necessary, down our throats. If we don’t accept it—we die. Will the final conflict on this planet be barbaristic ideology vs. civilization? At this juncture, it appears that is precisely what will occur.
