Nine Years Ago Today

2010-09-11

Who would have thought that Muslims and Islam, not Americans and Christianity, would be paraded daily by our media as victims in such a short time?

Who would have thought that Americans, not terrorists, would be digitally strip-searched at airports and lied to about the technology every step of the way-- by our own government-- because we were the victims of the terror of Muslims and Islam?

Who would have thought that Americans and Christians would be defending the right of Muslims to build a victory mosque at “ground zero” while simultaneously denouncing the right of an American citizen to burn whatever they want on their own property-- and threaten them with fines, and pre-blame them for physical violence that will occur worldwide just for planning it?

Who would have dreamed that the daily worldwide atrocities committed in the name of “the religion of peace” would merit them protection and special treatment while praying publicly in the name of Jesus would get a pastor fired?

Who would have dreamed that anyone would consider allowing Sharia law to operate in America, when that law violates our Constitution and is a slap in the face of this country’s founders?

Who in their worst nightmares would think the thousands who died that day would be sacrificed on the altar of political correctness, even to the point of blaming the Jews for what their bitterest enemies did?

In only nine years America has gone from world power to world patsy, from the last bastion of freedom to an oppressive police state crawling with high-tech spies, from an industrial giant to a debt-ridden spoiled brat, from a constitutional republic to a caliphate.

We have been betrayed, and I can only grieve for the country that used to be. God is undoubtedly judging us, but as He did with the ancient enemies of Israel, He is quite capable of raining down even greater judgment on ours. The world’s biggest crybaby religion/government is Islam, and right now its tantrums are getting it everything it demands. But this will not last, for judgment is soon to begin on the entire world. The reign of the antichrist will be short-lived.

We never learn lessons from history. Maybe that is because no one actually teaches history anymore?

When one appeases a bully, they are simply asking to be eaten last as Churchill so metaphorically put it.

What I do not understand is why Christians think it is holy to turn over our freedom to such people? Do they not care about Muslim’s who are in bondage to evil? Do they not care about Muslim women? Do they not care about how their children will be raised if we allow this to continue? That is like consigning your children to hell. Who will tell them about Christ?

I have come to conclude that many Christians do not believe that real evil exists. And that protecting the innocents around them is somehow sinful.

Lydia

One more thing...appeasing a bully is only prolonging the inevitable. And that means more innocents will die because we were too stupid to stand by our Bill of Rights.

Paula Fether

Absolutely, Lydia. Appeasement never works. But instead of history our children have been indoctrinated to never fight back even in self-defense. We are told the lie that Christians are the world’s doormat or trash bin, as if the honor of Christ means nothing to them. Meanwhile, the bullies are continually praised and pampered, and we’re in the tale of The Emperor’s New Clothes all over again. As you said, the blood of our children and grandchildren drips from the hands of the appeasers. And payback from God will be hell.

Never say never or so the old expression goes; but we can say that the likelihood of Sharia law ever holding sway in the U.S. is drastically diminished considering how the American people love their liberty.

We’re different from the folks in the UK and on the European continent in this regard. We just won’t tolerate anybody telling us how to order our lives. The same goes for those who would desire that we be governed by Biblical law also. Regardless of the brand of religion, there will always be zealots who hate and despise human freedom in any form.

Paula Fether

I want you to be right, Greg. But are there enough real Americans left?

Greg Anderson

For the record, I don’t see radical Islam posing an existential threat to the U.S. A nuisance like horseflies and ants at a picnic gathering at the lake? Yes. A criminal enterprise (Al Quaida) like a crackhouse in the hood? Certainly.

Ya know who poses the real existential threat to America? China. The industrial giant you spoke of was systematically hobbled and the middle class it fostered reduced almost to penury by a financial sector run amock. Wall Street was allowed to make us a virtual colony of China for the sake of roll back prices at Walmart and "free market" fundamentalism that answers to nobody.

When she (China) hungers for Lebensraum (new territory) and her thirst for oil can no longer be slaked through diplomatic means, what then? Who will check her? A bankrupt U.S. with useless garrisons strung out all over its empire? History is a harsh teacher indeed, ask the ghosts of the Italian peninsula what happened when the Goths and the Huns swarmed over what was left of the Roman Empire.

Paula Fether

All good points, Greg. And I agree, the ultimate conqueror will be China (forgetting Bible prophecy for the moment). But for the present, all knees are bowing to the moon god. I think China is waiting for Islam to finish us off, because it’ll be like a cop waiting to make the arrest till the professional driver is thrown out of the racecar and the gangsta teen takes the wheel.

"We just won’t tolerate anybody telling us how to order our lives."

We already have. We just do not want to admit it. We have always allowed kooks to have free speech. But now we don’t when it comes to Islam.

But it is not really about us. What about allowing Muslims to practice forms of Sharia law in their communities? I see it coming. It is already in Canada. This violates our Bill or Rights.

Here is a comment I left on another blog:

I think the Koran burning is an empty gesture that gets the pastor his 15 min of fame. That is what I think it is really about.

HOWEVER, In this country we allow all kinds of kooks to have free speech. This is a free speech issue and if we do not see it as that, then we are in big trouble. The strong arm of the Sheriff of that county should scare us all even more.

The pastor would only get ridicule and score from most people. Then his 15 min would be up.

The Muslim reaction to us TALKING about burning a Koran is ridiculous. It is like 8 year old boys over reacting. Threats to kill others because of it? Are these sane people we are talking about? Or evil people? When are we going to stop seeing Muslim responses to such things as normal and people we can negotiate with? We are becoming as insane as they are.

So, where is that line in the sand we are going to have to draw sooner or later? Is it AFTER we have allowed some vestiges of Sharia law to be implemented HERE in their communities? Say goodbye to the Bill of Rights for everyone living here.

From: http://cjunk.blogspot.com/2006/02/why-peaceful-majority-is-irrelevant.html

I used to know a man whose family were German aristocracy prior to World War Two. They owned a number of large industries and estates. I asked him how many German people were true Nazis, and the answer he gave has stuck with me and guided my attitude toward fanaticism ever since.

“Very few people were true Nazis” he said, “but, many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.”

We are told again and again by “experts” and “talking heads” that Islam is the religion of peace, and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unquantified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the specter of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.

The fact is, that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars world wide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. The hard quantifiable fact is, that the “peaceful majority” is the “silent majority” and it is cowed and extraneous.
