The Arab “Spring” could easily become the “Fall” of Western civilization if the world continues to blindly comply with the rigid demands of Radical Islam. The problem is that most of us in the western world have difficulties separating Islam from Radical Islam.
The atrocities committed by terrorists around the globe in the name of Islam obviously fall into the category of radicalism. The venom spewed out by imams and many of their followers about Israel “the little Satan” and America “the Great Satan” should also to be categorized under antisemitism and Islamo-fascist propaganda.
Those displays of pure hatred are easy to identify on the backdrop of a modern and civilized 21st century global community, and many Muslims actually refuse to associate themselves with the actions of the radicals amongst them. But being under Islam also makes them– the more tolerant Muslims– simply “moderate Muslims” amongst radicals. They might very well be between a rock and a hard place.
In other words, peaceful Muslims will eventually have to choose where they place their allegiance: in the West or in Islam? I certainly wouldn’t put all my money on them siding with the West (being by choice or by force).
The Qur’an doesn’t have room for infidels whether they are Jews or Christians as long as they are non-Muslims, and Non-Muslims citizens of the world are considered dhimmis or “protected second class citizens” under Islam. The reality though is that nobody is really protected. Islam is simply putting on a façade while they continue to infiltrate the West through “silent Jihad” amongst other ways, until their roots are deep enough that no government will be able to stop them from the total “Sharianization of the World”
One of the Muslim organizations that has been receiving a lot of news coverage lately, is the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). They are a worldwide organization of Muslims with a goal of implementing and sustaining sharia:
The Muslim Brotherhood is a group established to promote development, progress and advancement based on Islamic references. Its principles and ideologies have succeeded in convincing many worldwide who have researched much about the movement, its founders and its leaders.
While they sound moderate in the West with their very vague mission statement, they pull no punches when it comes to the destruction of Israel and all Jews. They are vocal about it, they militate in its favor and they act upon their words. Tolerance can only work when reciprocated, which is far from being the case with the Muslim Brotherhood.
Their logo carries their agenda in no uncertain terms: “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our exemplar. The Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.” Beneath the sword: “Be ready!”
Here we have a brotherhood of hatred that worships martyred death as the ultimate spiritual act.
They are convinced that Islam is truth
They are committed to Jihad as a way of life, and…
They are carrying on the cause of Allah with passion!
At the risk of being accused of living with a utopian ideology, allow me to dream for a moment as I look at another brotherhood that unfortunately doesn’t really exist but should: The Christian Brotherhood!
The Christian Brotherhood is based on the Judeo-Christian ethics of one book: the Holy Bible. It is based on the grace and mercy of the God of the universe who values the life of every single person on this planet, regardless of their ethnicity or belief. This is why He chose to send Yeshua (Jesus) to die for the sins of the world as the Lamb of God, the ultimate sacrifice. It is based on the unique teachings of the same Yeshua of Nazareth about loving our enemies and praying for those who persecute us (Matthew 5:44).
The Christian Brotherhood boldly fights for Christian values in the public place. It acts with passion, commitment and conviction to make a difference in a world without hope. But I must stop before I get too excited and start believing that it actually exists.
If only Christians would be as bold as their Muslim counterparts, we would see more people meeting God and inviting Yeshua as their Lord and Savior.
In reality, most Christians are so apathetic that the “Islamization of Christianity” is no longer a matter of “if” but simply “when”
Of course, I am aware that there are Christians who actually are making a difference, but they are a shrinking minority.
If we really believe that Yeshua died for our sins, rose again and will return one day to establish the Messianic Kingdom in Jerusalem, then it is time we become Radicals for Yeshua!
Sadly, many Muslims would not hesitate to die for a lie. Why is it that most Christians would never risk their lives for the Truth.
A tale of two brotherhoods! One leads to eternal damnation through hate and the other to eternal life through love. This really looks like a no brainer to me!
But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God,
And your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear.
For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Messiah died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)
