Condemned To Repeat History
Condemned To Repeat History
Posted By Michael Youssef On 8:46 PM 03/16/2017 In |
EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE: Islam didn’t spread the way Christianity spread — by free-will evangelistic appeal. Islam spread by the sword. It advanced as Islamic warriors conquered the Middle East, North Africa, and parts of Europe. The history of Islam is a history of bloody struggle.
In June 2016, the Presbyterian Church USA held its 222nd General Assembly in Portland, Oregon. A Muslim community leader gave the invocation, praying, “Lead us on the straight path — the path of all the prophets: Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad.”
This prayer was drawn from the Fatihah, the opening chapter of the Koran: “Show us the straight path, the path of those whom Thou hast favoured; Not the [path] of those who earn Thine anger nor of those who go astray.”
Muslims understand “those who earn Thine anger” to be the Jews and “those who go astray” to be Christians. The Presbyterians thought this was a prayer for interfaith understanding, but it was actually a veiled insult to the Christian audience.
Now, I draw a clear distinction between most Muslims and the radicalized, political Muslims known as Islamists. I was born in the Middle East, and I have many dear friends and acquaintances who embrace Islam. I don’t want anyone to misunderstand my genuine affection and appreciation for Muslim people.
But we need to understand the history of the Islamist movement. Islam was founded in the seventh century by Muhammad with a goal of an Islamic world empire. Islam expanded rapidly under Umar ibn al-Khattab, Muhammad’s chief disciple and the second caliph. Umar conquered most of the Byzantine Empire and all of Persia within a few years.
EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE: The problem is worldwide and growing by the day. The thinking that defeating ISIS will resolve the issue is naive. ISIS Is merely the “flavor of the day.” Yesterday (and perhaps again tomorrow) it was al Qaeda. Before that, it was Islamic Jihad. The Muslim Brotherhood and its ally Hamas dates to the thirties and is stronger now than ever. Boko Haram in Africa and Abu Sayef in the Philipines remind us the problem is not restricted to any particular region. Fundamentalist Islam is a world power and it has declared war on the world.
There were many losers in the election. Hillary would seem to be the biggest but in the great scheme of things she is not. She may turn out to be a bit player, after all.
The Democrats and liberals, in general, were set back exponentially and now control less of the government than at any time since the 1920s or perhaps even in the history of their party founded in 1828. They lost not only the Presidency, The House, and the Senate but will soon see the Supreme Court transformed into a bastion of Constitutionalism for at least a generation to come. The GOP will hold governorships in 33 states, the most in nearly a century. Some are predicting the end of a liberalism that threatened the very nature of the Republic. It may take decades to realize the full impact of what has happened, but America has been put back on the “right” path after decades sliding into a moral and economic abyss.
The Media lost “bigly”, especially CNN and the New York Times as did many others who did all within their power to ensure Trump never entered the White House. They are now hoping they will see the inside of the White House in days to come.
We have all heard the news today regarding the FBI reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails because of “thousands” of emails they have discovered while investigating Anthony Weiner in his sexting scandal with an underage 15 year old girl. As many of you know, Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin, Hillary’s chief aide, are married (separated since his most recent sexting scandal broke several months ago).These emails must have some highly sensitive or secret information in them for the FBI to go to the extreme measure of reopening Hillary’s email investigation. During the original investigation numerous emails were discovered in Hillary’s emails that were classified SAP (Special Access Programs) dailycaller.com/2016/01/19/report-emails-at-the-highest-classification-levels-found-on-hillarys-private-server/ SAP’s contain information on ongoing covert operations and operators which, if disclosed, endanger the lives of those who are working “under cover” and compromise ongoing operations.The news has been non stop since it broke this afternoon. What the media (even Fox), is not mentioning is the fact that Hillary’s chief aide, Huma Abedin, is a Muslim and both her mother and father have high positions in the Muslim Brotherhood and are actively involved in a Islamic magazine that promotes Sharia Law throughout the world. Huma, herself, was an associate editor of this same magazine.Why should it matter that Huma,who handles highly sensitive information as Hillary’s closest aide, has a questionable family background? That information should be known to the American public but no one in the media is daring to mention the fact. Dare I say “political correctness” or not wanting to “offend” Islam.
VIDEO – PRAGER U IS ISLAM A RELIGION OF PEACE ?
|In the aftermath of every attack committed by Muslims in the name of Islam we are exhorted not to blame Islam itself, because it is “a religion of peace” that has been hijacked by people doing violence for their own reasons. Is this explanation accurate? Not according to author and activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali, and she would know: she was raised a practicing Muslim. In this week’s video, she explains that the call to violent jihad is contained in the Qu’ran, and that violent acts in the name of Islam cannot be divorced from the religion itself. On what grounds does she make this claim? And what can be done about it? Watch the video here to find out.
Jihadists Target Spain

Islamic militants are stepping up a propaganda war against Spain. In recent months, Islamic State and other jihadist groups have produced a flurry of videos and documents calling on Muslims to reconquer al-Andalus.
