Islam's ruthless global war against Christianity
It's easy to deny that Islam has thrown the dice and decided that now is the time to overthrown the Great Satan - that would be Western Civilization generally and The United States of America, more specifically - but the following account strips away some of the veneer folded into the "war on terror" rhetoric. A "holy war" has been declared against Christianity by Islamic leaders and, in our age of computers and speed-of-now cell phones along with the PR support from Western cable news channels, the attacks are ruthless and multi-faceted. Patrick Poole wrote the following in The American Thinker: Islam's Global War against Christianity. From Poole,
From Nigeria to Indonesia, Christians are under seige in virtually every single country in the Muslim world, the victims of countless acts of discrimination, depredation, brutality, and murder that are so widespread and systematic that it can rightfully be called the new Holocaust. This time, however, the perpetrators of this Holocaust aren't wearing swastikas, but kufi skull caps and hijabs.So I have to ask here - why are we denying these Christians the last bastion of refuge from Islamic intimidation and terrorism. Why are we opening our borders to "terrorists" who practice the "religion of peace?" Do we want to be persecuted here too or do we want to stand as the last place of refuge for these Christians embattled world-wide? The post came to me by way of Larwyn and I must include her comments as well pertaining to President Bush's intention to name a "special envoy" to the Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC). From Larwyn:
Once that "special envoy" to the OIC is named and we know where his office is - we should inundate him with e-mails, phone calls, etc with our demands... [For my part, I thought we already had an envoy to Islamic nations under the guise of our Ambassador to the United Nations. President Bush announced last week (end of June after he spoke to the Muslim Brotherhood front groups) that he will be sending a special envoy to the 57-member Organization of Islamic Countries. Hopefully, the systematic persecution of Christians and other religious minorities will be the first and primary item in the new envoy's portfolio, with the 2007 annual report of the US Commission on International Religious Freedom and State Department's Annual Report on International Religious Freedom, which name virtually every single country in the OIC for its human rights abuses and religious cleansing, as evidence for our country's concern. The fact remains that not a single Christian or Jew lives in peace in the Muslim world, and if it is truly our nation's foreign policy to spread democracy around the world, this issue is the perfect topic for us to press...Please read Patrick Poole's post. I have been keeping this to pass on and now is the time. Thanks to Larwyn for her relentless pursuit of the news - the news the Mainstream Media does not want us to see or hear.
