There is a 17th century Japanese proverb often rendered in drawings, carvings and/or sculptures known as sanbiki no saru or “three monkeys”. By respectively covering their eyes, ears and mouth, they embody the principle of “See no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil”. They are known worldwide as the “Three Wise Monkeys”.
While in and of itself, the maxim teaches some very good principles, it can also lead to the opposite results when applied within the wrong context like in the case of Western civilization and Islam.
Recently, the “peaceful and democratic” Muslim Brotherhood (MB) declared that their ultimate goal was the “Mastership of the World” or in other words complete world domination. As ludicrous as this may sound to many tolerant, politically-correct westerners, the MB is dead serious! They plan to do it by re-establishing the Caliphate (rulership of Islam under the caliph or spiritual head). They might be well on their way in Europe with the help of the OCI (Organisation de la Conference Islamique), already acting as a corporate caliphate of 56 Muslim nations (1.3 billion muslims).
This is the same Muslim brotherhood who within days of toppling down Qaddafi and his regime decided to established Sharia n Lybia. This is the same Muslim brotherhood who has infiltrated the Egyptian government after Mubarak’s departure and will most likely take over Egypt in the next elections.
Incidentally, former US President Jimmy Carter was just in Egypt and is telling the world that the Muslim brotherhood want to assume political control but he [Carter] wants to re-assure us that the peace treaty with Israel will still be honored. I feel safer already!
I wonder if Mr. Carter is aware of the statement made by MB deputy chief Rashad al-Bayoumi regarding the Egypt/Israel Peace Treaty:
“We weren’t party to the peace treaty, it was signed away from the Egyptian people and thus the people must have its say,” the Muslim Brotherhood official said. Referring to the issue of recognizing Israel, al-Bayoumi said that the Muslim Brotherhood was not required to recognize Egypt’s neighbor to the north, saying that Israel was an “occupying entity and we will not allow anyone of our members to meet with an Israeli. I won’t allow myself to meet with a criminal and there’s no chance that we’ll cooperate with Israel,” the Egyptian official said.
It was Sir Winston Churchill who once said: “An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.”
We cannot afford to continue giving Hamas, Hizbullah and the Muslim Brotherhood the ” Wise Monkeys” treatment unless we really believe that Islam is a religion of peace that means no harm to Israel or Western Civilization. If you do believe that, I have a bridge in Brooklyn …… Well, you know the rest of that sentence!
Consider these verses from the Hadith Sahih Muslim (Commentary on the Qur’an) and the Qur’an itself:
Sahih Muslim 30—Muhammad said: “I have been commanded to fight against people so long as they do not declare that there is no god but Allah.”
Qur’an 5:51—O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.
Then you have the rest of us “the infidels” who put their trust in the one who died to first bring peace in the heart of men–Messiah ben Joseph– and ultimately will return to bring real shalom to the whole world, and reign as King out of Jerusalem–Messiah ben David (Isaiah 52:13-53:12). Two Messianic offices in one person: Yeshua (Jesus) of Nazareth. He came to atone for our sins, died and rose again so that we can repent and make Him our Lord and Savior. Then, when God the Father looks at us, He will see no Evil, Hear no Evil, Speak no Evil!
