Many Americans are naïve about the agenda of open borders. The article below highlights the motives and goals of open borders: Globalism and the New World Order. They desire to eliminate national sovereignty. The Democrats want to destroy our national distinctiveness and allow the unvetted world to come into our nation. This is not hard to figure out. The Democrats are indeed Globalists. They have to vote whether or not to open the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in prayer whenever they convene. They want to abolish I.C.E. They always start their protesting of manger scenes about this time of year, and any mention of Christmas. They promote Islam at the expense of the Judeo Christian ethic upon which this nation was built. The Democrats are the party for the amoral and godless millennial generation, who prefer Socialism, Progressivism, and Communism over Capitalism and Democracy. They are not your daddy’s Democrat’s and no longer a viable political party to even consider supporting. They have left their own parties’ platform. Pray that our borders remain secure or we will no longer have a country! Maranatha, Pastor Steve <><

Globalist Push To Erase Borders: UN Promotes Migration As Human
By Judith Bergman/Gatestone Institute November 13, 2018

The United Nations, in a non-binding agreement that almost all UN member states will sign at a ceremony in Morocco in early December, is making migration a human right.
The finalized text of the agreement, the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration, although officially non-binding, “puts migration firmly on the global agenda. It will be a point of reference for years to come and induce real change on the ground…” according to Jürg Lauber, the representative of Switzerland to the UN — who led the work on the agreement together with the representative of Mexico.
One immediate irony, of course, is that few countries have entry requirements as restrictive as Switzerland’s. If one wishes to stay more than three months, not only is a “residence permit” required, but, “In an effort to limit immigration from non-EU/EFTA countries, Swiss authorities impose strict annual limitations on the number of residence and work permits granted to foreigners.”
These hard-to-come-by-residencies have, unsurprisingly, become a source of income as “[r]ich foreigners ‘buy’ Swiss residency.”
The UN agreement, on the other hand, notes:
“Refugees and migrants are entitled to the same universal human rights and fundamental freedoms, which must be respected, protected and fulfilled at all times.” (Preamble, section 4)
It cannot be stressed enough that this agreement is not about refugees fleeing persecution, or their rights to protection under international law. Instead, the agreement propagates the radical idea that migration — for any reason — is something that needs to be promoted, enabled and protected. Almost all UN member states, except for the United States, Austria, Australia, Croatia, Hungary and possibly also the Czech Republic and Poland, are expected to sign it.
The UN has denied that migration is being made into a human right. “The question of whether this is an invidious way to start promoting a ‘human right to migrate’ is not correct. It’s not in the text; there’s no sinister project to advance that,” Louise Arbour, the UN special representative for international migration, recently said.
The UN has no interest in admitting that the agreement promotes migration as a human right; until recently there has been little debate about it. More debate might risk jeopardizing the entire project. The wording of the agreement, as documented below, leaves little doubt, however, that with the signing of the agreement, migration will
The agreement is divided into 23 objectives toward which the signatories apparently wish to work. Objective number three, for instance, envisions the promotion and enabling of migration through a number of means. Signatory states commit to:
“Launch and publicize a centralized and publicly accessible national website to make information available on regular migration options, such as on country-specific immigration laws and policies, visa requirements, application formalities, fees and conversion criteria, employment permit requirements, professional qualification requirements, credential assessment and equivalences, training and study opportunities, and living costs and conditions, in order to inform the decisions of migrants.”
States, in other words, are not only supposed to open their borders for the migrants of the world, but should also help them pick and choose their future country by providing them with comprehensive information about each country they may wish to settle in.
The service level envisioned to facilitate more migration is also high. Countries are called upon to:
“Establish open and accessible information points along relevant migration routes that can refer migrants to child-sensitive and gender-responsive support and counselling, offer opportunities to communicate with consular representatives of the country of origin, and make available relevant information, including on human rights and fundamental freedoms, appropriate protection and assistance, options and pathways for regular migration, and possibilities for return, in a language the person concerned understands.”
Once migrants have arrived at their chosen destination, the signatory countries commit to:
“Provide newly arrived migrants with targeted, gender-responsive, child-sensitive, accessible and comprehensive information and legal guidance on their rights and obligations, including on compliance with national and local laws, obtaining of work and resident permits, status adjustments, registration with authorities, access to justice to file complaints about rights violations, as well as on access to basic services.”
Migrants are, evidently, citizens of a new world, in which all countries must spring to the assistance of anyone who has chosen to travel and reside there for whatever reason. Borders may exist in theory, but the UN — comprising nearly all governments of the world — is working hard at making them disappear in practice.
Migrants, according to the agreement, must also be “empowered to realize full inclusion and social cohesion” in their new countries (objective 16). This means, among other things, that countries must:
“Promote mutual respect for the cultures, traditions and customs of communities of destination and of migrants by exchanging and implementing best practices on integration policies, programmes and activities, including on ways to promote acceptance of diversity and facilitate social cohesion and inclusion.”
All cultures are equal and must be equally respected. Presumably, this means that, for example, the tradition of female genital mutilation (FGM), which almost all Somali women experience in Somalia, must be acknowledged in London and Paris as deserving of “mutual respect” in the same way that it would back in Mogadishu.
The agreement goes on to enumerate the work that states must initiate to accommodate migrants. “National… policy goals regarding the inclusion of migrants in societies, including on labour market integration, family reunification, education, non-discrimination and health” should be developed. In addition, the host country should facilitate “access to decent work and employment for which they are most qualified, in accordance with local and national labour market demands and skills supply.”
In other words, newly arrived migrants in, say, Europe, should have the same, or at least very similar, rights to education, the labor market and health care, as Europeans, who have worked hard and paid taxes for half a century to gain access to those very same things. Europeans, of course, will have to pay for all of this out of their tax money.
The authors of the agreement evidently do not expect it to go down all that well with their populations. An agreement to facilitate mass migration into primarily Western countries from the rest of the world (there is no migration to speak of in the opposite direction) may prove a bit much for people in the West. The agreement therefore clearly signals that any disagreement with the agenda will not be accepted and that the signatory states will work to dispel “misleading narratives that generate negative perceptions of migrants.”
To make this objective a reality, the signatory states first commit to:
“Promote independent, objective and quality reporting of media outlets, including internet-based information, including by sensitizing and educating media professionals on migration-related issues and terminology, investing in ethical reporting standards and advertising, and stopping allocation of public funding or material support to media outlets that systematically promote intolerance, xenophobia, racism and other forms of discrimination towards migrants, in full respect for the freedom of the media.” (Objective 17)
This is Orwell on steroids. Almost all UN member states will sign an agreement that says media outlets that disagree with government policies will not be eligible for public funding? On top of this, the agreement claims, bizarrely, that it is being written “in full respect for the freedom of the media”, as if that is going to make anyone actually believe it.
Second, the signatory states commit to:
“… eliminate all forms of discrimination, condemn and counter expressions, acts and manifestations of racism, racial discrimination, violence, xenophobia and related intolerance against all migrants in conformity with international human rights law.” (Objective 17)
The agreement, conveniently, offers no definitions of what constitutes “racism” or “xenophobia” in this context. What, for example, is “related intolerance”? Is criticism of UN migration policies, for instance, “intolerance”?
Originally, all UN member states, minus the United States, had approved the finalized text of the agreement and appeared ready to sign it in December. Recently, however, more states have announced that they are withdrawing from the agreement.
In July, Hungary withdrew from the agreement. Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto described it as “entirely against Hungary’s security interests,” and added:
“This pact poses a threat to the world from the aspect that it could inspire millions [of migrants]. Its main premise is that migration is a good and inevitable phenomenon. We consider migration a bad process, which has extremely serious security implications.”
In July, Australia also indicated that it would withdraw from the agreement, at least in its present form. According to Minister for Home Affairs Peter Dutton:
“We’re not going to sign a deal that sacrifices anything in terms of our border protection policies… We’re not going to surrender our sovereignty – I’m not going to allow unelected bodies dictate to us, to the Australian people.”
In November, both the Czech Republic, and Poland announced that they were very likely to withdraw from the agreement and Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic wrote in a statement that she would not be signing the agreement. “Our sovereign principles on securing our borders and controlling migration flows are absolutely the priority for us”, said Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.
Also just this month, Austria announced that it also would not be signing the agreement. “We view some points of the migration pact very critically, such as the mixing up of seeking protection with labour migration,” Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said.
The European Union immediately criticized Austria’s decision. “We regret the decision that the Austrian government has taken. We continue to believe that migration is a global challenge where only global solutions and global responsibility sharing will bring results” said an unnamed spokeswoman from the European Commission.
This is, by the way, the same EU that is supposedly going to be “cracking down” on migration. If you are “cracking down” on migration, why are you signing agreements that will facilitate and exponentiate it as a human right?

Christians Sentenced To Death Under Sharia Law
By Majid Rafizadeh/Gatestone Institute October 15, 2018
Share this article:
Frequently, Shiite Islamic preachers and leaders can be heard stating that Islam recognized “People of the Book,” which refers to Christians and Jews. This assertion sounds as if Islam gives Christian and Jews the same level of status and respect as their Muslim counterparts.
That argument was recently confirmed when the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Hassan Rouhani, claimed that “Christians have the same rights as others do.” With that confirmation, it might be easy to assume that Christians are relatively safe in Iran. But are they?
In speeches, and on paper, these words probably give the impression that Christians are not only welcome in Iran, but given equal rights and protections. However, the everyday experiences of Christians in Iran, tell a very different story.
Violence and persecution against Christians have, under the sharia law of Iran, increased significantly. One recent case documents the traumatic experiences of Pastor Victor Bet-Tamraz and his wife Shamiram Issavi, ethnic Assyrian Christians, along with Amin Afshar Naderi and Hadi Asgari, who converted to Christianity from Islam. Each were sentenced by the Revolutionary Court in Tehran to a combined total of 45 years in prison. Despite Iran’s claims that they have equal rights and protections, they may never see freedom again.
What terrible crime must they have committed to warrant such a harsh punishment? Surely it had to be more than simply being Christians? After all, the President of Iran had made it clear that Christians enjoy equal rights. The ambiguous charges they faced included vague terms such as conducting “illegal church activities” and threatening “national security.”
Why would there be animosity toward Christians in Iran that might drive the kind of persecution these four faced? Even though Christians make up a very small part of the population, they have always been viewed, under Iran’s sharia law, as a threat to “national security”. Iran’s total population is roughly 80 million, with anywhere between 117,000 and 3 million of that total being Christians, according to various estimates.
The international community has recently taken note of the abuse of power wielded against Christians in Iran. The latest report, from Amnesty International, pointed out that, “Christians in Iran have been a target of harassment, arbitrary arrest and detention, unfair trials, and imprisonment on national security-related charges solely because of their faith.” Yet, atrocities against them continue.
It is worth noting that, before the Islamic revolution, in order to gain support and power, fundamentalist Muslim leaders promised the Christians in Iran that they would have the same rights as Muslim citizens. They also assured Christians that they would be able freely to practice their faith.
As a result, many Christians, trusting that they would enjoy the freedom that was promised to them, supported the Muslim leaders. Instead, after the Islamic revolution, anyone who did not believe in the Islamist and revolutionary ideals of the sharia theocracy became the enemy. Even recently, the Iranian president stated:
“Our revolution was victorious when we were all together… All Iranian races, all Iranian religions, Shiites and Sunnis, Muslims, Christians, Jews and Zoroastrians — whoever believes in the constitution, that is our criteria. He is a revolutionary and he must be respected.”
Unfortunately for the Christians of Iran, they are not being respected at all.
In response to the latest abuses against Christians, Amnesty International has initiated an “urgent action” appeal. It has called on the Iranian regime to “quash the convictions and sentences of Victor Bet-Tamraz, Shamiram Isavi, Amin Afshar-Naderi, and Hadi Asgari, as they have been targeted solely for the peaceful exercise of their rights to freedoms of religion and belief, expression, and association, through their Christian faith.” However, there are far more stories of Christian persecution throughout Iran, than just these four.
Many other Christians are being jailed for baseless charges such as “Propagating against the Islamic Republic in favor of Christianity.” The organization “Article 18,” which promotes religious freedom and supports persecuted Christians living under sharia law, wrote on Twitter on August 9, 2018:
A Christian couple have reported that a court in Boushehr has just sentenced them & 10 other Iranian Christians to one year in prison each for “Propagating against the Islamic Republic in favour of Christianity”. This group of Christian converts were arrested on April 7th, 2015
There does not yet exist any information about their release.
The oppression does not end here. Another Christian couple who converted from Islam, was also recently charged with “orientation toward the land of Christianity,” according to Mohabat News. Even though the Christians have been told they have the right to practice their religion, they are being arrested and tormented for it.
Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani was sentenced to death in 2010 for “apostasy,” because he converted from Islam to Christianity. After significant pressure from legal and human rights groups, in a retrial, a court acquitted him of the charge of apostasy that carried the death sentence. The retrial ended with a guilty verdict on the charge of “evangelizing Muslims,” but he was sentenced to the prison time he had already served, and released.
In 2016, Nadarkhani was “charged with ‘acting against national security.’ He also was accused of Zionism and evangelizing.” On July 6, 2017, he was sentenced to 10 years in prison and an additional two years in exile in Nikshahr (southern Iran). He was allowed to appeal and was out on bail when, on July 22, 2018, police raided Nadarkhani’s home and took him to Evin Prison. He will have 10 years of his life stolen from him, just because he practiced his faith.
The American Center for Law & Justice in Washington, D.C., has launched a petition for Nadarkhani’s release. As of October 2nd, more than 112,000 people has signed the petition. The ACLJ pointed out that “Iran’s actions violate its own constitution that guarantees religious freedom, and multiple international human rights treaties.” However, he remains in prison.
This may seem confusing and contradictory to some; what is important to note is that in countries run by sharia law, the constitution becomes inferior to the Islamist laws of the land.
When radical Islam gains power, every article in the constitution becomes contingent on compliance with sharia. The rights that are promised in the constitution therefore become null and void. The Christians in Iran who believed that by supporting the Islamic revolution they would be gaining protections and equal rights are now instead living in constant fear.
Only increased pressure from the international community may create a change within Iran that might afford these innocent people some protections against the brutal acts that they face.
It is not enough to hope that one day Christians will be able to practice their faith in Iran without fear of persecution or death; action must be taken by the global community to ensure that the Iranian regime stands by its own constitution and provides its Christian citizens with equal rights and protections.

With 100 Sharia courts and 423 new mosques London is more Islamic than many Muslim countries
By Ronoc R. 11 October 2018
Mosques are popping up all over Britain, especially in it’s capital city of London. Sharia courts are in full function in London; handing out actual decisions to London’s ever growing Muslim population.
“London is more Islamic than many Muslim countries put together,” Islamic preacher Maulana Syed Raza Rizvi told local media
Churches still outnumber mosques in Britain, but there are many mosques that are becoming overcrowded. Five years ago the Daily Mail published photos of churches and mosques in London. The difference was astonishing.
The St Mary’s Church had only 12 people attending mass. While nearby at the Brune Street Estate mosque there were over 100 Muslims, full to capacity.
Since 2001, 500 London churches of all denominations have been turned into private homes. While this was going on, mosques have been popping up all over London. From 2012 to 2014 the number of Brits who identified as Muslim has grown by over one million.
Regular churchgoers are declining at a rate that within a generation, their numbers will be three times lower than that of Muslims who go regularly to a mosque on Friday.
In Britain it’s estimated that by 2020, Muslims going to a mosque regularly will outnumber Christians going to church.
There are now officially 100 Sharia courts in London. The allowance of these justice systems in parallel with British courts has Brits very worried. It’s now fully legal for Sharia courts to operate in Britain thanks to British Arbitration Act and the system of Alternative Dispute Resolution.
As London becomes more Islamic, you may wonder when they’ll rename the city “Londonistan”. Well it may not be that far off.
From the blog author- Just like Constantinople was renamed Istanbul, London seems destined for the same and without a shot being fired. This should fill Christians in America with great consternation. Islam established one hundred mosques in the United States by 1970, and the number is close to 3,000 now! As Christianity wanes in our nation, Islam will fill the vacuum. The Democratic Party, with their ideology of open borders (which destroys the very definition of any nation), and currently desiring to allow illegals from Central America (including the murderous thugs from MS13) to enter our country, abolishing I.C.E., and establish welfare programs given to all who cross our borders while ignoring the needs of our own citizenry, all pave the way for an Islamic takeover. Our Judeo Christian ethic, as well as our definition of a family have already been turned on their head. Islam has claimed the entire west, simply because of our declining birthrates due to abortion and the slaughter of innocents, and our deification of career and recreation. Their birthrates are, as we all know, going through the ceiling.
A true windswept revival and return to Jesus Christ is our only hope. A real movement of faith is always with positive effect in the government of any nation. In Christ, Pastor Steve <><
People are still dying from cancer and other medical complications resulting from this terrorist attack. Will our nation learn from this disaster? God places a hedge of protection around nations and peoples who obey Him, and He removes the blanket of security when we worship other gods. Have we learned about the evil of Islam, their desire for world wide conquest, and forcing ALL people to submit to Sharia Law? Pastor Steve <><
Do not ever believe that Muslims are settling in the west in order to privately practice their faith. Islam means “submission” or “submit,” and in the fifty seven Muslim countries, no other religion is allowed. In the Koran, Christians and Jews are referred to as monkeys and pigs, and that is what they truly believe. Their religion even encourages them to lie wherever it is politically expedient, in order to promote their false god Allah. By the way, the keynote speaker at this rally has already called for Jews and Christians to be killed. Maranatha, Pastor Steve <><
Muslims Hold Massive Rally at Vikings Stadium Chanting “Allahu Akbar” (VIDEO)
August 22 2018
Nearly 50,000 Muslims have gathered inside a US football stadium to celebrate Eid al-Adha, also called the “Festival of Sacrifice.”
Local Minnesota mosques organized the massive event to take place at the US Bank Stadium to celebrate the Islamic holiday which coincides with the Hajj, the annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca.
Because of the name and nature of the holiday, where Muslims sacrifice livestock as a symbol of the prophet Ibrahim’s [Abraham in Hebrew Bible] willingness to sacrifice his only son, the US Bank stadium has had to dispel rumors of mass animal sacrifices taking place inside its venue.
“No animal sacrifice will take place at U.S. Bank Stadium,” a spokeswoman for the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority Jenn Hathaway announced in Minneapolis on Tuesday.

Beware of the Emerging Church and Universalists who desire to blend all of the world’s religions together. This blog site addresses this apostasy under the category “The Emerging Church.” The word that best fits the article below is CHRISLAM, which is obviously a combination of Christian and Islam.

There will be a new feature in the Christmas program at one Norwegian elementary school this year: the Quran. But it’s only the latest example of the Muslim holy book showing up in a Christian environment.
The Stigerasen School in Skien, Norway, announced last week that this year’s Christmas festivities would feature students reading not only the typical Bible verses but also two verses from the Quran.
The Quranic verses are about Jesus, but Muslims consider Jesus only a prophet, not the Son of God. And Christmas is not an Islamic holy day; Muslims typically do not celebrate it at all.
The Quran has pushed its way into other Christian settings around the world. In January, passages from the Quran were read from the lectern of St. Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral in Glasgow, Scotland.
The cathedral had invited local Muslims to join its service on the feast of Epiphany to promote understanding between Christianity and Islam.
A Muslim student read from the Quranic chapter that tells the story of Jesus’ birth to the virgin Mary. The chapter contains the Islamic teaching that Jesus is not the Son of God and should not be worshipped, which led some Anglicans to criticize the cathedral for allowing the verses to be read.
In July 2016, a verse of the Quran was sung from the altar in the Church of Santa Maria in Trastevere in Rome, Italy.
While the Catholics in attendance recited the Creed, a delegate of al-Azhar mosque in Cairo chanted an Islamic prayer for peace. It happened during a Mass in memory of Father Jacques Hamel, who was murdered by ISIS terrorists in his church in France.
Meanwhile, in the parish church of San Martino in Rebbio, Italy, a veiled Muslim woman read the Quranic verses that announce the birth of Christ during Mass on Christmas morning 2015. The priest, Fr. Giusto della Valle, intended it as a gesture of interreligious dialogue.
In fact, Pope Francis allowed the reading of Islamic prayers and Quran passages from the Vatican, the very seat of Roman Catholicism. It happened in June 2014 when Francis met with the late Israeli president Shimon Peres and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Vatican City at a gathering to pray for Middle East peace.
America is headed down a suicidal path and not many Americans understand the full extent of the problem. Get all the details in Leo Hohmann’s “Stealth Invasion: Muslim Conquest Through Immigration and Resettlement Jihad,” available now in hard copy or e-book at the WND Superstore.
According to anti-Shariah activist Pamela Geller, this has all sadly become par for the course.
“This is a sign of the times in Europe,” said Geller, author of “Stop the Islamization of America.” “It’s as if the Europeans know who their new masters and overlords are. The same spirit of appeasement and submission that animates such initiatives in Europe is alive and well here.”
Indeed, 50 U.S. churches in 26 states invited Muslim clergy to come and read from the Quran in their sanctuaries on June 26, 2011. It was part of the “Faith Shared: Uniting in Prayer and Understanding” initiative, a project of Interfaith Alliance and Human Rights First. The project was an effort to counter “anti-Muslim bigotry” at a time when Quran burnings had been in the news. The Washington National Cathedral was one of the churches that took part in the initiative.
Leo Hohmann, a WND news editor and author of “Stealth Invasion: Muslim Conquest Through Immigration and the Resettlement Jihad,” had harsh words for the Christians who have allowed the Muslim holy book to be read in their sacred spaces.
“Allowing the Quran to be read inside a church is the equivalent of the ancient Israelites setting up an image of a false god in the Holy of Holies,” Hohmann declared. “It’s blasphemous. Why? Because the Quran denies the deity of Christ, denies that God is a Father or that he had a Son, and also denies the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. What’s left of Christianity that Islam and the Quran do not deny?”
Hohmann noted American public schools are not helping students learn the true nature of Islam. Rather, they are teaching children a sanitized, politically correct version of Islam that obscures its fundamental differences with Christianity, he said.
“They are being taught Islam believes in Jesus and worships the ‘same god’ as Christianity and Judaism,” he said. “All lies. But how can we expect a nation that no longer knows or recognizes its own God to recognize a fake when it’s put forth and celebrated by godless Marxists in our school systems and even in many of our churches?”
As Hohmann mentions in “Stealth Invasion,” the Tri-Faith Initiative in Omaha, Nebraska, is perhaps the most striking interfaith effort in America today. It’s composed of a group of Jews, a group of Christians and a group of Muslims who have located their houses of worship on the same campus “to promote dialogue, transcend differences, foster acceptance, and build bridges of respect and trust,” according to the initiative’s mission statement.
Hohmann said members of the initiative lately have been spreading their message about the “same god” and “common ground” between the three faiths to churches and schools in the Omaha area.
On Oct. 24, the imam associated with the Tri-Faith Initiative, Mohammad Jamal Daoudi, spoke for 30 minutes in front of the altar at St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church in Omaha, Hohmann said.
“During his address to the Omaha Catholics, the imam denied Christ, denied the crucifixion, denied the resurrection and denied the authenticity of the Bible – all with the blessing of the church’s priest, Father Tom Bauwens.”
America is headed down a suicidal path and not many Americans understand the full extent of the problem. Get all the details in Leo Hohmann’s “Stealth Invasion: Muslim Conquest Through Immigration and Resettlement Jihad,” available now in hard copy or e-book at the WND Superstore.
Many nations in our world, especially the 57 Arabic countries, have been planning to destroy Israel since her inception in 1948. Yikes, are they in for a big surprise! The Islamic nations and terrorist groups are ALWAYS boasting how they will annihilate Israel and push her into the Mediterranean Sea. They attacked her in 1948, 1967, 1973, and on several other occasions. Israel smashed her enemies and increased in size after every attack! Israel is the one nation with a 100% guarantee to enter the Millennium totally unscathed. Israel is the apple of God’s eye: Psalm 17:8, Proverbs 7:2, Zechariah 2:8.
Genesis 12:3 King James Version (KJV)
And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Top Iranian General: Islamic Army In Syria Awaiting Orders To Eradicate Israel
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz Breaking Israel News July 10, 2018
Hossein Salami, the vice commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, recently gave a speech full of threats aimed directly at Israel, referring to the Palestinians as Iran’s main tool against their true enemy: the United States.
“Seventy years have passed since the policy of England and America planted in the Islamic world an accursed and criminal tree [i.e. Israel],” Salami began, in the speech on Quds (Jerusalem) Day last month that was just translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
“For 70 years, this poisoned dagger has been embedded in the body of the Islamic ummah, and all the problems of the Islamic world stem from the existence of the false, counterfeit, historically rootless, and identity-less regime named Israel.”
Salami gave the speech in the city of Mashhad to commemorate Quds Day, officially called International Quds Day, an annual event held on the last Friday of Ramadan that was initiated by Iran in 1979 to express support for the Palestinians and oppose Zionism and Israel. In his speech, he describes Israel as a tool, bringing the threat of the US into the heart of the Islamic world.
“[Israel] brings the range of America’s missiles against the Islamic world 12,000 kilometers closer, and becomes a tool for imposing America’s policy against the Islamic world,” Salami said. “[Ayatollah Khomeini] transformed the heart of Iran with the great [Islamic] Revolution, [and set] a new power against the evil of the arrogance [i.e. the U.S.], against the supporters of the Zionist regime, and against this regime itself.”
He emphasized that due to its size, Israel has no defense against the Iranian threat.
“The Islamic Revolution created a mighty power called Hizbullah, that today, as the Zionist regime itself acknowledges, has over 100,000 missiles ready for launch,” Salami said. “The Zionist regime has no strategic-defensive depth, and in some places, the breadth of this regime is barely 34 km, and in order to destroy it, it will take only one ‘Jerusalem operation’ to destroy it.”
During the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war, Iran referred to its operations against Iraq as “Jerusalem operations.” Another such operation against Israel is imminent, Salami warned.
“Today an international Islamic army has been formed in Syria, and the voices of the Muslims are heard near the Golan,” Salami said. “Orders are awaited, so that the custom of God vis-à-vis the eradication of the evil regime [Israel] will land and the life of this regime will be ended for good. The life of the Zionist regime was never in danger as it is now.”
In his speech, Salami identified the Palestinians as Iran’s primary weapon against its enemies.
“Once, the Palestinians fought with stones and slingshots, but today they are armed with missiles,” Salami said. “Every regime site is today under fire from the missile launchers. The farther and more deeply [we look], the more we see that there is a politically and militarily powerful regime in the world that raises the flag of fighting evil. This regime is Iran.”
Iran is considered the head of Shiite Islam. As such, Salami called on young Muslims around the world to join in fighting against Israel and the US.
“Iran invites the Muslims to jihad, and the spirit of jihad today breathes in the body of the Muslim nations. The young Muslims who care are proud of fighting the Zionists, the Americans, and their allies, and becoming a martyr is an honor for them. This is our main might.”

There is a question that we all struggle with, and one that many people may find difficult to answer:
When does teaching the facts about Islam morph into becoming religious brainwashing, indoctrination, propaganda or evangelizing?
I don’t think many parents are opposed to teaching students about the history of Islam, its achievements, its failures, its struggles and even its victories — as long as these studies are taught accurately, without political or religious motive, and are not given favorable treatment over other major religions of the world.
Perhaps most of us can agree that this should be the educational standard for presenting the subject of Islam in the public schools. But does such a definition really work?
Even the most obvious attempt at evangelizing public school children into Islam can easily be explained away by some as giving students nothing more than the facts about Islam.
Muslims believe in the Five Pillars of Islam. That’s a fact. Islam preaches Allah is the one true God. That’s a fact. The Quran teaches that Muslims must accept Muhammad as God’s messenger and prophet. That’s also a fact.
These are facts, but they can also cross over from presenting the basic tenets of Islam to aggressively pushing religious indoctrination or evangelizing.
For example, let’s say a public school teacher said this to his or her class: “The Bible says if you don’t repent and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, and believe He died on the cross for your sins, then you’re going to spend an eternity in hell.”
Would such instruction be considered teaching a fact about Christianity or, more likely, an attempt to convert children into the Christian faith?
The answer to that question would probably depend on how the teacher said it. Was it delivered mockingly, seriously, with a wink, dryly, with a fist pounding on the desk, with pointed fingers, perhaps with a smirk or rolling eyes?
Whether presenting facts about religious tenets is considered indoctrination or education is difficult to answer and brings to mind the 1964 U.S. Supreme Court decision that attempted to define what constitutes obscenity.
Justice Potter Stewart, who found it nearly impossible to define when someone’s free-speech rights crossed the line into illegal obscenity basically threw up his hands and said, “I know it when I see it.”
We find ourselves somewhat it the same predicament when attempting to clearly define the line between education and indoctrination when it comes to presenting the facts about the religious tenets and beliefs of Islam.
Earlier this year our organization, the Christian Action Network, exposed what we considered to be an Islamic indoctrination program funded by the Department of Education. It’s called “Access Islam.”
In this program, children grades 5-12 are taught the shahada (the Muslim profession of faith), asked to draw posters of the Five Pillars of Islam, told to watch a video on how to pray as a Muslim, were also asked to read Islamic scriptures, explain the meaning of those scriptures and told to explain how Muslims use those verses found in the Quran in their everyday lives.
We found these lesson plans to be clear examples of Islamic indoctrination activities that go well beyond what is legally permissible for public schools when discussing religion.
But our opponents in the media and certain educators disagreed and said the program does no more than teach children the facts about Islam.
I might add that the Department of Education has no similar program that teaches even the most basic tenets of the Christian faith.
So which is it? Is “Access Islam” an example of religious indoctrination? Or is it simply a program that gives children Islamic facts?
First, let’s understand the definition of indoctrination.
Indoctrination occurs when you present opinions as fact without presenting opposing views.
Saying that Islam teaches “Allah is the one true God” is of course a fact, but the statement itself is widely disputed by billions of Christians worldwide, who believe the claim is false.
When schools present Islamic beliefs, without balancing those beliefs with opposing views from other religions or even to present secular opposition, then a line has been crossed into indoctrination.
And this is why the public schools should never be used to teach students the tenets of a religion – unless it is presented in an elective religious studies class that teaches comparative religions.
But we all know here that Islam is not being taught to school-age children in religious study classes. No. Islam is being taught in geography, history and social studies classes.
And the tenets of Islam are, in many cases and in many examples, being taught as indisputable facts in these classroom settings.
If you want students in a social studies class to understand the culture of Muslims in the Middle East – and teach them how in certain areas women are forced to wear burqas, hands are chopped off for minor offenses, homosexuals are thrown off tall buildings, that Christians are forbidden to own a Bible or build a church, that’s fine. Because these are indisputable facts.
But if you want to give the religious tenets that are used to justify these human rights abuses, then present them in an elective religious studies class where opposing views to these beliefs are equally available.
By giving students a one-sided view of Islamic beliefs, I believe this is nothing more than an attempt to convert our children into Islam and not only that, but in some cases an attempt to turn our children into evangelists for Islam.
When children are asked to draw the Five Pillars of Islam to be displayed in the classroom or posted up-and-down the school hallway, this is attempt to use children to spread the message of Islam.
Clearly, having children engaged in such activity goes well beyond any argument that students are simply learning the basic facts about Islamic beliefs.
And I assure you, that if children were tasked with a project of drawing a poster of John 3:16 to be displayed in the classroom — and throughout the school — the ink would not be dry on the poster board before the courts would rule this activity unconstitutional.
There are plenty of examples in the public schools where children have not only been asked to draw posters of the Five Pillars of Islam, but have been asked to draw pictures of the Prophet Muhammad, sing an Islamic song, asked to wear Islamic clothes, draw “There is no God but Allah and Mohammed is His prophet” in calligraphy, construct a 3-D model of a mosque, design an Islamic prayer rug and even be asked to make an Muslim pamphlet to help third grade students understand and accept Islam.
But the problem of Islam in the schools go well beyond giving students the supposed facts about this religion, or getting them to become evangelists for the religion, because students are also being forced to accept as truth the disputed claims of Islam.
For example: In Union County, North Carolina children were told to write the following statements: “Islam, at heart, is a peaceful religion.” I think that can be disputed. And then there is this one: “Most Muslims have a stronger faith than the average Christian.”
Let me pause right there for a moment.
I don’t need a show of hands on this, but how many of you have seen news stories, or even watched videos, of Christians being lined up by Muslim extremists and then beheaded?
Whose faith is actually stronger in those horrible, wretched examples of Islamic butchery?
In Syria, Muslims burned six Christian men who worked at a bakery after they refused to convert to Islam. And as horrible as that sounds, an image that is absolutely frightful and terrifying, what happened next was worse.
I’ll read you the words of Alice Assaf as she told them to The New York Post: “After that, they caught some 250 kids and kneaded them like dough in the bakery dough machine. They were put in the dough mixer. They were kneaded. The oldest one of them was four-years-old.”
Do not tell me that Muslims have a stronger faith than the average Christian. Last year alone, 7,000 Christians were killed for their faith. Some studies have reported even greater number of Christian martyrdom.
What we are witnessing in the world today is not weakness among Christians, which is the most persecuted faith in the world. Instead, we are witnessing Christian strength, courage, fortitude and faithfulness that is facing a religion that produces gutless cowards who will stab you, run you over with a vehicle, set you on fire, thrown acid in your face, mow you down with a gun, blow you up in an airplane or with an airplane, and even feed you into a dough-making machine.
Words are cheap. And to have our Christian, public school students write, “Most Muslims have a stronger faith than the average Christian,” is to force them to engage in a lie, to degrade their own religion and to insult the thousands of Christian martyrs who are now dying every year in defense of their faith.
In LaPlata, Maryland students are told, “Allah is the same god that is worshipped in Christianity and Judaism.” This is wrong and not a fact. And in Revere, Massachusetts, children had to write this answer to the question of what is the First Pillar of Islamic belief. They wrote: “I bear witness that there is no God but Allah.”
When you require students to write, “I bear witness that there is no God but Allah,” this is forcing the students to agree with that statement.
Let’s flip the coin for a moment.
If teachers were educating students about white supremacy, would they dare have students write the white supremacist creed, “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.”
Any teacher attempting to do so would be rightfully fired.
But how is this any different than making Christian students write, “I bear witness that there is no God but Allah.”
I say, there is no difference.
Perhaps the strangest, saddest and most outrageous lie being taught to students also occurred in LaPlata where students had to write that Muslim conquerors treat those whom they conquer with “tolerance, kindness and respect.”
Tell that nonsense to the Yazidis in Iraq who, in 2014, had their homes pillaged, their women raped, their men tortured and killed, and those who were left alive, forced into converting into Islam and made into slaves, or sold as slaves, at the hands of ISIS.
What part of any of this is an act of “tolerance, kindness and respect?”
These Islamic lesson plans, which we are bringing to your attention today, are not about teaching children the facts of Islam. It’s about indoctrination and brainwashing, conversion and proselytizing, lies and propaganda.
Jonathan Gruber, the architect of Obama Care, was confident Congress would pass the Affordable Care Act because he believed in “the stupidity of the American voter. “
But Obama Care didn’t really pass because of the “stupidity of the American voter,” did it?
It passed because of the stupidity of elected officials, highlighted by one of the most stupid political statements ever made by a lawmaker, Nancy Pelosi, who said, “We have to pass it to see what’s in it.”
We are not a stupid people. We are not ignorant. And we are not easily deceived.
And when educators come against our children and grandchildren in an effort to minimize and defame our Judeo-Christian beliefs, supplant our God and Savior with that of Allah and a false prophet, and try to force-feed children into accepting myth as a fact, rest assure parents will not only see it and know it, but they will also show these educators who really does have the stronger faith.

This is NOT hard to understand. Islamic nations interpret America has weak and vacillating, already giving up the Judeo Christian ethic and the foundation we were built upon. They are working in concert with progressives, agnostics, atheists, and all of secular America who are opposed to Christianity and our original core values. Adolf Hitler knew that the platform for his proposed world wide dominance would be to indoctrinate and brainwash the youth, the exact theme of the article you just read. If I were a young Christian parent today, I would eat nothing but beans and rice, dress in hand-me -downs and live in a shack before I would place my God given children into the public school system which has been taken over by the Deep State and Shadow Government, who are focused NOT on traditional American values but upon the New World Order.
Pastor Rick Warren’s Prayer at Barack Obama’s first inauguration
The down sized generic, universal, one size fits all Jesus promoted by Rick Warren, is meant to please everyone. Since we had a two term Muslim president, Warren thought it was chic to share the Islamic view of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ – Isa, a mere prophet. (Listen to him pray to the Muslim false prophet at 4:01-4:02 of this video). I need to know nothing more about Rick Warren. Jesus asked the apostles: “Who do you say that I am? Peter spoke for the group and responded: “Though art the Christ, the Son of the Living God.” Matthew 16:13,16. Following is an appropriate quotation for Rick Warren and this occasion:
“Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.” -Author Unknown
