France: Toward Total Submission To Islam, Destruction Of Free Speech

News Image

Any nation that lacks an identity will be the first to capitulate to Radical Islam.  Do you Baby Boomers remember the often quoted phrase during the Cold War:  “Better dead than red?”  That is how any Christian who is truly born from above, should feel about “submitting” to Islam.  (Islam means to submit to).  The apathetic mindset in liberal, vacuous Europe is precisely why these nations will fall to Islam like overripe fruit!  They have not Jesus!  Their culture is very weak, and provides absolutely no opposition to Islam.  There is absolutely no resoluteness or moral fiber in their DNA.  Islam can only enter a vacuum, and that is what the West has become.  Ironically, only the Russian and Ugandan governments recognize sodomy and the so called “gay” lifestyle as sinful, and it is against their laws.  Franklin Graham complimented Vladimir Putin for remaining firm on their Biblical stance.  Did you ever believe you would see the day that Russia stood on Biblical precepts better than we do?  Pray for revival in America.  Jesus Christ is our only hope!  Blessings, Pastor Steve  <><

France: Toward Total Submission To Islam, Destruction Of Free Speech

By Guy Millière/Gatestone Institute March 22, 2018

After the murders of much of the staff at the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris on January 7, 2015, the hostage-taking and slaughter at a kosher supermarket two days later confirmed what was already obvious: France was a target of Islamic terrorism.

A huge demonstration, organized in Paris on January 11, brought together a million and a half people, with politicians from around the world in attendance.

For a brief moment, France seemed to be the country where the multitudes were ready to stand up for freedom of speech, and the government was ready to fight for Western values.

Unfortunately, that impression did not last long.

For years, freedom of speech in France has been in the process of being crushed, particularly regarding Islam and Islamic terrorism. Journalists who said that Islam often did not look much like a religion of peace but more like a religion of war were systematically and harshly prosecuted. Charlie Hebdo’s new director and editor-in-chief were also not spared: they were sued as early as 2006, the year the magazine republished the Danish Mohammed cartoons.

They were sued again in 2007, 2012 and 2013. The writer Michel Houellebecq was summoned to court in 2010 for saying that Islam is a “stupid” religion. The first judicial sentence against the polemist Éric Zemmour dates from 2011. The website Riposte Laïque was established in 2007 to fight censorship, defend secularism, and preserve the right to criticize Islam. Lawsuits against its founder, Pierre Cassen, immediately became overwhelming.

Judicial harassment against those who still dared to speak “incorrectly” about Islam did not stop after the murders at Charlie Hebdo: rather, they intensified. The terrorist attacks that took place in France in November 2015 and in July 2016 did not lead to any demonstrations; merely to displays of sadness, fear and resignation.

French politicians used empty words, spoke of the dangers of “fanaticism” and said that France was “at war” — but they never named an enemy. Journalists and writers who said that terrorists attacking France were Muslim, and that “Islamism” was not foreign to Islam, had to answer for their words in court and were fined thousands of euros.

Both Éric Zemmour and Pierre Cassen have spent hours on trial providing conclusive evidence — in vain.

Since the election of President Emmanuel Macron a year ago, the situation has become worse. On June 20, 2017, at the end of a post-Ramadan iftar dinner he shared with Muslim leaders, President Macron stated that “…no one should make believe that Islam is not compatible with the Republic”; that ” no one should say that France reject Muslim faith” and that “attempt to give Islam the image of a religion condoning murder and terror” must be condemned.

Most French critics of Islam got the message and cautiously chose silence. Riposte Laïque did not, but here were consequences.

On January 20, 2018, Pierre Cassen was convicted of “incitement to hatred against Muslims” and a fine of $12,000 was imposed on him. He was also given a three-month suspended prison sentence. He will soon be tried again for repeating the same “crime”, and could be sent to prison.

Several European governments have made it clear that criticizing Islam may lead to prosecution and conviction. Recently, British, Danish and German citizens have been handed suspended sentences. If Pierre Cassen is imprisoned, it will be the first time that someone in a Western democracy is sent to jail for criticizing a religion.

Worse, Cassen is not even the author of the article targeted by the judges, and the article only says what is obvious: that extremist Muslims are at war with France and the West, and that incitement to kill infidels is present in the Qur’an. Cassen was sentenced as the editor of Riposte Laïque; since 2012, however, Riposte Laïque has been hosted by Switzerland and has a Swiss editor.

Pierre Cassen no longer even has an official role in the organization. He is just easy prey because he lives in France. Pierre Cassen, clearly a victim of prosecutorial abuse, is planning to apply for political asylum in Switzerland.

Two members of the French National Assembly, Gilbert Collard and Marine Le Pen, a former presidential candidate who secured 35% of votes in the May 2017 run-off, were also recently charged with “inciting violence”. They did not even publish texts criticizing Islam.

After a journalist compared their party (National Front) to the Islamic State, they tweeted photos showing atrocities committed by the Islamic State, and added under the photos: “This is the Islamic State”. They are also facing serious fines and prison sentences. The photos they tweeted are not even secret: they are widely available on the internet.

Originally, Collard and Le Pen were protected by parliamentary immunity. Their parliamentary immunity, however, was revoked by an almost unanimous vote in the French National Assembly. This is the first time that members of a democratic Western government risk being imprisoned for publishing widely available photos of Islamic crimes.

French laws are being used more and more often by the French justice system to suppress any criticism of Islam. Furthermore, in a dangerous inversion of reality, critics of Islamic terrorist violence are now systematically presented by French judges as examples of incitement to hatred and violence. The threat of jail time is added to the threat of fines.

Consequently, those who criticize Islam — or who just show the results of Islamic terrorism — are victims of fierce prosecution, while hate-filled, racist organizations are never touched. The Islamic “Natives of the Republic” movement, for instance, regularly publishes texts saying that ” greedy Jews control the global financial system” and that “Zionists kill Palestinian children for pleasure” but are never condemned.

Houria Bouteldja, the spokesperson for the movement, published a book describing Jews as vicious supporters of “Islamophobia”, and stating that the Holocaust is “infinitely less than a detail” of history. She recently took part in anti-Israel demonstrations where flags of Hamas and Hezbollah were waved and portraits of murderers of Jews were held up. Jewish organizations expressed their indignation and filed complaints — to no avail.

The French government and the French justice system claim to treat all religions equally, but they treat Islam as if it were “more equal than others” — able to enjoy special privileges.

In France, attacks against Islam are benign and rare, but lead to severe convictions: in January 2016, a man dropped slices of ham in front of a mosque. He was immediately sent to jail for several weeks. Attacks against Christianity, however, are countless, sometimes violent, but almost never lead to any conviction. French theaters produce anti-Christian shows almost every year.

In a play called “On the Concept of the Face of God,” currently on tour throughout the country, for almost two hours, a large portrait of Jesus Christ is insulted and covered with matter that is supposed to be feces. The French Ministry of Culture subsidizes the tour. No theater director, however, would imagine producing an anti-Islam show.

Six to eight million Muslims live in France, and the number is increasing. France’s 400,000 remaining Jews have not yet left France, but every year their the numbers shrink. Practicing Christians vanish; churches are often empty.

Polls show that a significant proportion of the French population thinks that Islam is a threat, but French authorities choose to harass those who speak of this threat.

In 2005, the situation was already serious. Muslim riots took place throughout the country. French President Jacques Chirac asked imams to restore calm and began to abandon the French government’s sovereignty over many districts. A few years later, President Nicolas Sarkozy claimed to organize an “Islam of France”, based on a structure he had created in 2003 when he was Minister of the Interior. He asked French Muslim leaders to call for “moderation”.

He failed: French Muslim leaders said unanimously that “Islam is not violent” and “does not need moderation”. He promised to end “no-go zones” and to take back the districts abandoned under Jacques Chirac. He also failed; in 2006 there were already 751 no-go zones in France, and “as of last count,” that number is no different. President François Hollande did nothing and let the situation rot. President Emmanuel Macron now speaks of the need to “reorganize the Islam of France” but instead appears to surrender.

Macron recently said he wants to create the post of “Grand Imam of France”, a man who would be the “spiritual leader” of Islam in France. He added that he would like to see the construction of large “cathedral mosques” in every important French city. He also wants the Arabic language to be taught in every high school, to maintain a relationship between Muslims and the language of their religion. He promises affirmative action in favor of Muslims and a more resolute fight against “those who attack Islam”.

He never uses the words “radical Islam”. He speaks of “radicalization”, but says that the main danger is the “radicalization of secularism”. He does not hide that those who defend secularism — and a clear separation between the government and Islam (Riposte Laïque, for example) — are an obstacle on the path he intends to follow. Clearly, the fight against “radicalization of secularism” is in high gear!

Marwan Muhammad, spokesman of the “Collective against Islamophobia in France” said in 2011:

“Who has the right to say that in thirty to forty years, France will not be a Muslim country? No one in this country has the right to extinguish our right to hope for a society that is globally faithful to Islam “.

Every day in France, men such as Marwan Muhammad have more reason to hope.

Prominent Islamic preacher Tariq Ramadan is presently being held at the Fleury-Mérogis prison near Paris: judges could not dismiss the overwhelming charges against him of rape. Some French Muslims still claim he is being unfairly accused.

Many others say he is an impostor and seem ready to get rid of him. They say it is urgent to create “authentic French Islamic institutions” fully “recognized by the French government”. President Macron could not have said it better. The Islamization of France will not stop.

President Macron recently said he wants a law against “fake news”. If the law is adopted, all online magazines in France that do not broadcast what the government defines as “true news” could be subject to immediate government suspension.

If they are located outside France, access to them would be blocked. Islamic online magazines and websites are not on the list of “fake news” providers. What online magazines and websites top the list? Those that question Islam.

Europe: Making Islam Great Again

All of the sudden, the bizarre is becoming the new normal.  Fact is stranger than fiction.  Islam tried to conquer Europe throughout the Middle Ages and failed.  Now, without even drawing the sword or the bow, Europe seems to be falling into their hands like an overripe piece of fruit.  Without even a protest from German Chancellor Angela Merkel or from British Prime Minister Theresa May.  Thousands of years of Christianity and European Jurisprudence are thrown out the window in favor of Islam and Sharia Law.  Why?  Simply because Europe appears to be nearly devoid of ANY semblance of religious, cultural or moral fiber!  Come and take our culture and nation, and do as you please!  We will do whatever you say!  We are truly living in surreal times.  People use to gladly die in order to defend their nations from Islamic rule.

Europe: Making Islam Great Again

By Judith Bergman/Gatestone Institute February 06, 2018
Share this article:

“We cannot and will never be able to stop migration”, wrote the EU’s Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship, Dimitris Avramopoulos recently. “At the end of the day, we all need to be ready to accept migration, mobility and diversity as the new norm and tailor our policies accordingly”.

Given that such people would have us believe that migration has become such a categorical and seemingly incontestable policy of the EU — “Migration is deeply intertwined with our policies on economics, trade, education and employment”, Avramapolous also wrote — it is crucial to analyze what kind of “diversity” the EU is inviting to make its home on the European continent.

Professor Ednan Aslan, Professor of Islamic Religious Education at the University of Vienna, recently interviewed a sample of 288 of the approximately 4,000 predominantly Afghan asylum seekers in the Austrian city of Graz, on behalf of the city’s integration department.

Members of the department understandably wanted to know the views of the Muslim newcomers there. The results were published in a study, “Religiöse und Ethische Orientierungen von Muslimischen Flüchtlingen in Graz” (“Religious and ethical orientations of Muslim refugees in Graz”).

According to the study, two-thirds of the asylum seekers are men, mostly under 30 years old. They are all in favor of preserving their traditional, conservative, Islamic values. The migrants are extremely religious; 70% go to the mosque every Friday for prayers.

The women are just as religious, if not more: 62.6% pray five times a day, notably more than the men (39.7%). In addition, 66.3% of the women wear a headscarf in public, and 44.3% refuse to shake hands with a man.

Half of the migrants (49.8%), report that religion now plays a larger role in their daily lives in Europe, than it did in their native country. 47.2% are convinced that Jews and Christians have strayed from the “right path”, and 47.8% think that the future of Islam would be in danger if Islam were to be interpreted in a modern and contemporary fashion.

For 51.6% of the interviewees, the supremacy of Islam over other religions is undisputed. 55% believe in hell for unbelievers.

Anti-Semitism is deeply ingrained: 46% believe that Jews have “too much influence in world affairs”, and 44% believe that Judaism is harmful. 43% opine that Jews themselves are at fault for being persecuted, while 54.5% think that Jews only care about themselves.

The migrants are not only intolerant of other religions: 50% find that homosexuality is a punishable sin. 44% of respondents said they would endorse violence against a woman if she cheated on her husband. 43% also said that fathers have a right to use violence on children if necessary.

The Austrian study is not the first of its kind to show that Muslim migrants to Europe hold supremacist, anti-Semitic, and misogynistic views. In 2016, a study of nearly 800 migrants from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Eritrea in the German state of Bavaria was conducted by a German think tank, the Hanns Seidel Foundation.

This study showed that patriarchal beliefs were widespread among the migrants interviewed, especially among migrants from Afghanistan and the mainly non-Muslim migrants from Eritrea, over 60% of whom believed that women should stay at home. Anti-Semitism was another major finding of the study, which showed that regardless of age and educational background, a majority of the migrants held anti-Semitic beliefs. Well over 50% of Syrians, Iraqis and Afghans said that the “Jews in the world have too much influence”.

Anti-Semitism in Germany has indeed become so widespread that Germany recently decided to appoint a special commissioner to fight it. Germany is reportedly preparing legislation that could see migrants who express anti-Semitic views deported from the country. “You Jew!” has apparently become a common insult among Muslim pupils in Berlin schools.

Other studies and polls also reveal the large degree to which Muslims in Europe value sharia law over national law:

A 2016 UK poll showed that 43% of British Muslims “believed that parts of the Islamic legal system should replace British law while only 22 per cent opposed the idea”. A different poll, also from 2016, found that nearly a quarter (23%) of all Muslims supported the introduction of sharia law in some areas of Britain, and 39% agreed that “wives should always obey their husbands”.

Nearly a third (31%) thought it was acceptable for a British Muslim man to have more than one wife. According to the same poll, 52% of all British Muslims believe that homosexuality should be illegal.

According to a 2014 study of Moroccan and Turkish Muslims in Germany, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria and Sweden, an average of almost 60% of the Muslims polled agreed that Muslims should return to the roots of Islam; 75% thought there is only one interpretation of the Koran possible and 65% said that Sharia is more important to them than the laws of the country in which they live.

The specific numbers for Germany were that 47% of Muslims believe Sharia is more important than German law. In Sweden, 52% of Muslims believe that Sharia is more important than Swedish law.

The studies are supported by European intelligence reports. In Germany, intelligence agencies warned in the early fall of 2015 that, “We are importing Islamic extremism, Arab anti-Semitism, national and ethnic conflicts of other peoples, as well as a different understanding of society and law.”

Four major German security agencies made it clear that “German security agencies… will not be in the position to solve these imported security problems and thereby the arising reactions from Germany’s population.”

In Norway, the head of the Norwegian Police Security Service (PST), Benedicte Bjørnland, said, in January 2016, that one cannot, “assume that new arrivals will automatically adapt to the norms and rules of Norwegian society.”

“Furthermore, new arrivals are not homogenous and can bring ethnic and religious strife with them… If parallel societies, radicalization and extremist environments emerge in the long run, we will have challenges as a security service.”

It is hardly surprising, then, that Europeans have begun to report that they no longer feel at home in their own countries. A recent Belgian study, in which 4,734 Belgians were polled, showed that two-thirds of Belgians feel that their nation is being “increasingly invaded”.

Two thirds of the people said that there are “too many immigrants in Belgium”, while 77% agreed with the statement, “Today we no longer feel at home as we did before [mass migration]”. According to 74% of people surveyed, Islam is “not a tolerant religion”, while 60% said the presence of so many Muslims in their nation presents a threat to its identity. Only 12% said they believe the religion is “a source of enrichment” for Belgium.

The study also surveyed 400 Belgian Muslims: 33% said they “don’t like Western culture”, 29% said they believe the laws of Islam to be superior to Belgian law, and 34% said they “would definitely prefer a political system inspired by the Quran”. The study also found that 59% of Muslims in Belgium would “condemn” the marriage if their son chose a non-Muslim partner, and 54% would condemn the marriage if their daughter chose a non-Muslim partner.

Tellingly, the response of the researchers behind the study — public broadcaster RTBF, liberal newspaper Le Soir, sociology research institute Survey and Action and a foundation called This is Not a Crisis — was to claim that they “observed the development of a true anti-Muslim paranoia [among Belgians], which has taken on a pathological dimension”.

None of these studies, polls, and intelligence reports appear to be making the least impression on European leaders. In the starry-eyed words of Avramapolous, it is not enough that the mainly Muslim migrants who have come to Europe, “have found safety in Europe”. According to him, “We also need to make sure they find a home”.

The question that remains unanswered — as European leaders seek to make Islam great again on the continent — is where Europeans are supposed to make their homes.

‘Ignorant Infidels’ In U.S. May Have To Be ‘Forced’ To Accept Islam

 News Image

Radical imams from Virginia, Maryland and Texas recently attended a fund-raising event organized by an Islamist charity in which they were treated to a smorgasbord of teachings from foreign-based Islamic thinkers.

 “The word ‘stick’ in Urdu is a common term used in south Asia to reference the use of force,” Rehan told WND in an email.

Rehan said he went undercover into Islamist meetings in his native Pakistan before he was forced to flee the country.

“Due to threats from these organizations I had to flee the country twice, once in 2009 and then the last time in 2012,” Rehan said. He now works out of Washington, D.C.

Even other Muslims who eschew jihad are under threat from mainstream Sunni Islam in America.

It’s no coincidence that Muslim leaders are talking about using the “stick” to whip American infidels into shape, says Rehman, the journalist who went undercover at the day-long event in Springfield, Virginia.

Among the “infidels” named at the Springfield conference was the moderate Shia sect of Ahmadiyya, who believe in a prophet who came after Muhammad and are therefore considered heretical by the majority of mainstream Muslims.

Here is one of the tweets from journalist Rehan that includes video from the conference:

Radical Islamists hold gathering and fundraiser in the U.S. state of #Virginia, urge use of force against minority #Ahmadiyya Muslims, say one of the biggest threat the Muslim community is facing today is how women are being “urged to go outside of their homes” #Springfield pic.twitter.com/kdpQmVAMmB

Commenting on the dangers faced by Islam, Ludhianvi said:

“The biggest threat that Islam is facing today is the disruption of the family system, for which they [west] are urging women to go out of their homes.”

Last year in his magazine, Ludhainvi issued a fatwa (decree) stating that the “use of cellphone by women in public places was against Islam” and so was wearing “high heel shoes.”

 The event in Springfield was organized by two U.S. registered charities, Idara Dawat-O-Irshad and Khatme Nubuwwat Center, both of which enjoy IRS tax-exempt status.

The registration desk in the hotel was manned by teenagers who displayed flyers and posters denouncing the founder of the moderate Ahmadiyya sect. An exhibition booth lined with posters urged Muslims to not vote for “non-Muslim candidates.”

The event particularly targeted the Ahmadis, about 15,000 to 20,000 of whom reside in the United States, many of them refugees from Muslim-majority countries where they are persecuted. Many of the conference speakers accused the Ahmadis of being “infidels” and criticized them for having “abolished jihad,” according to Rehan’s undercover report.

During a question-and-answer session, Ludhianvi warned the U.S. government to “stop giving refuge to the adherents of the Qadiani faith [Ahmadis],” who he claimed were worse than Jews and Christians.

The conference ended with organizers urging the attendees to donate $100 each to pay for the expenses of the “cause,” Rehan noted. The organizers also thanked the “Karahi Kabob” restaurant owner for providing free food to the conference attendees.

The prime delicacy was offered up by keynote speaker Habib-ur-Rehman Ludhianvi, a visiting Islamic cleric from Pakistan.  Ludhiavi believes America is a “land of infidels,” whom he described as “ignorant.” His comments are a ringing example of what Muslim leaders say when they are behind closed doors and in the company of other Muslims, as opposed to the public comments meant for gullible infidel ears, security experts tell WND.

Ehsan Rehan fled his native Pakistan and works as a journalist in Washington, D.C.

The only reason the public knows what was said inside the Nov. 18 conference at a Holiday Inn in Springfield, Virginia, is because the gathering was infiltrated by Ehsan Rehan, the brave Pakistani-born journalist and editor of Rabwah Times who went undercover and captured video and audio.

The keynote speaker, Ludhianavi, is leader of the Islamic seminary Dar-ul-Uloom, which is based in Pakistan but operates branches in the United States, Canada and the U.K., including one in St. Paul, Minnesota, that opened in a former Catholic church in 2014. There’s another in Lawrenceville, Georgia, and others in Warren, Michigan, and San Bernardino, California.

On 12 Mile Road in Warren, the Darul Uloom Islamic Center and School is one of many Dar ul-Uloom madrassas that former Homeland Security officer and whistleblower Philip Haney has tracked and described as radical. Haney said San Bernardino terrorist Syed Farooq attended a Dar ul-Uloom mosque in that city and exchanged repeated text messages with the mosque’s imam in the months leading up to his attack on an office Christmas party that killed 14 Americans in December 2015.

What do YOU think? Is Islam a threat to Christianity in America? Sound off in the WND Poll!

Darul ul-Uloom mosque on 12 Mile Road in Warren, Michigan
The Dar ul-Uloom mosque in San Bernardino is a haven for activists involved with Tablighi Jamaat – a fundamentalist, proselytizing Islamic sect known in some circles as the “Army of Darkness.”
“Dar ul-Uloom are the evangelists of the Islamic world,” Haney told WND. “They emphasize children memorizing the Quran.”

According to its website, “Darul Uloom Michigan has been sincerely serving the Muslim community since its inception, and by the grace of Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala), it is now a notable Islamic seminary with students of all ages from across North America.”

At the Virginia conference, Ludhianvi advised a sort of carrot and stick approach to conquering American minds for Islam, starting with heretical Muslims who don’t believe in jihad. He said:
They are ignorant and there is no need for dialogue with them, God has given them two options, one is the holy book and one is the stick and if one does not accept the holy book they have to be forced.
The imam’s use of the word “stick” should not be overlooked.

On the same day Ludhianavi was speaking at the conference in Virginia, another U.S. Muslim leader, Jaylani Hussein, was speaking at a symposium in St. Cloud, Minnesota, where he told a group gathered at the public library:
I understand that our organization [CAIR] comes under threat. I know why we come under attack. It’s not because of our silence. It’s because we carry a big stick.

‘Last Days Babylon’ Now On Drawing Board?

Mecca, Saudi Arabia is the spiritual home of Islam

Posted with permission from WND

Mecca, Saudi Arabia is the spiritual home of Islam
It is planned to extend over multiple nations and to dwarf New York City at 33 times its size. The costs are expected to be hundreds of billions of dollars, and it is already attracting investments from some of the wealthiest and most powerful people in the world.

It’s Neom, the new mega-city planned by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salmon.
Located on the Red Sea coast, the city will have a special legal status within Saudi Arabia and will supposedly be fully automated, with robots outnumbering humans.
The city is also supposed to be powered entirely by renewable energy sources, feature free high-speed Internet and will extend over 10,231 square miles, crossing the Egyptian and Jordanian borders. The crown prince also spoke of the kingdom’s willingness to embrace what he called a “normal” life, promoting a form of Islam that “translates to tolerance, to our traditions of kindness.”
Saudi Arabia has debuted a flashy promotional video intended to attract foreign investment, vowing to build a center for global culture with “nothing to hold you back.”
“No set ways of thinking, no restrictions, no divisions, no excuses,” claims the narrator, speaking in a British accent. “Just endless potential. This is the blank page you need to write humanity’s next chapter. Neom … a part of the world set aside for those who want to change the world.”

The global financial elite are already rallying around the project. The Economist proclaimed:
“At the launch were an ebullient Masayoshi Son, the Japanese head of a $100bn ‘Vision Fund’, and Stephen Schwarzman, head of Blackstone, a private-equity giant. Klaus Kleinfeld, a former boss of Arconic, Alcoa and Siemens, is to be NEOM’s chief executive. The prospect of creating a dynamic zone without the barriers to enterprise found elsewhere in the country has such people genuinely enthused.”
Such grandiose pronouncements already are drawing criticism. The kingdom has already tried to construct the “King Abdullah Economic City in Rabigh,” billed as the “world’s next great economic city.”
But despite a projected population of 2 million people, there are only 5,000 permanent residents. There are also doubts whether Saudi Arabia’s bureaucracy can effectively administer such a massive project. In addition, the fall in oil prices is limiting the amount of cash the Saudis have to fund such an expansive project.
But another critic is worried about the more disturbing implications of the plan. Joel Richardson, the New York Times bestselling author of “The Islamic Antichrist,” believes he has solved the biblical riddle of “Mystery Babylon” in his book of that title.
And he argues the location of the end times’ city of evil is in Saudi Arabia, making the kingdom’s newest plans to become an economic superpower deeply worrisome.

One of the greatest mysteries in Scripture – solved at last! Discover the terrifying truth behind the shadowy identity of one of the greatest horrors of the end times. New York Times bestselling author Joel Richardson reveals the secret of “Mystery Babylon.” Available now in the WND Superstore.
“Throughout church history, interpreters, commentators and students of the Bible have struggled to understand the identity of a last days city known as ‘Babylon the Great’ (Revelation 17-18),” Richardson told WND.
“Many have looked to the city of Rome as the fulfillment, while others have looked to Jerusalem, or New York City. Others have been awaiting a city to be rebuilt on the literal site of the ancient Babylon about 50 miles south of Baghdad in modern day Iraq. In my book ‘Mystery Babylon,’ I suggested the kingdom of Saudi Arabia may be a more appropriate, and even more biblically defensible position. Specifically, I look to the city of Mecca, the single greatest city of idolatry that mankind has ever produced.
“Well over a billion and a half people bow down five times daily and pray toward that great city. The mosque in its center which houses the famous Kabba, or cube-shaped shrine that Muslims pray toward, is literally the single most visited location in the whole earth, with millions upon multiplied millions of religious pilgrims visiting each year.”
Richardson does not take seriously Saudi claims of favoring a “tolerant” form of Islam.
“Saudi Arabia is the single greatest source of funding for the spread of radical Wahhabi Islam all over the earth,” he said. “Over the past 40 years, the Saudis have spent roughly $150 billion to build mosques and fill them with radical Wahhabi hate preachers all over the earth. They have arguably spent more to spread Wahhabism around the earth than the entire mission spending of the global Protestant church. From any given madrassa in Pakistan to the mosque in your town or city, it is likely it was paid for by the Saudi royal family. No other nation in the earth has done as much as the Saudis to spread a false religion throughout the earth in such a way that its fundamental character has been so permanently impacted.”

Richardson believes the effort to build a new “mega city” supports his claim “Mystery Babylon” will be located within Saudi Arabia.
“Students of biblical prophecy have long noted that the book of Revelation speaks not simply of a city, but of a ‘mega-city’ that will emerge in the last days,” he observed. “Consider the massive building projects taking place in and around Mecca and Jeddah, which will soon feature the world’s newest and tallest building, dwarfing the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Just to the north, the Saudis have been quietly building the King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC), which is slated to become the region’s most technologically advanced sea port. All three cities – Jeddah, Mecca and KAEC – will soon be linked by a high-speed rail line which will allow anyone to get from one city to the next in less than 30 minutes.
“There is no doubt that this emerging megalopolis will match all of the unique descriptions of the last days Babylon, combining idolatry, religious power and economic power into one desert sea-port. It is for this reason that students of God’s Word are taking a fresh and serious look at the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its relationship to biblical prophecy. Now, the Saudis have announced this massive project to the north of Mecca and Jeddah. Truly, this would fulfill the description of a ‘mega-city’ as mentioned in the Book of Revelation.”
Richardson, a frequent critic of Saudi influence on American politicians, acknowledges the kingdom will find it difficult to realize its breathtaking ambitions. Nonetheless, he warns the rapid expansion of Saudi influence throughout the world and the construction of a sprawling metropolis straight out of the pages of Scripture should command the attention of faithful Christians.
“Any watchful student of prophecy will be paying very close attention,” he said. “We should be paying attention not only to ‘Neom,’ but to all that is now unfolding in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the ancient and modern day fountainhead of a violent false religion now bursting out into the nations.”

City Bans Family From Farmers Market Because They Won’t Host Same-Sex Weddings at Their Orchard

Michigan farmers Steve and Bridget Tennes have been blocked from participating in an East Lansing farmers market because they do not host same-sex weddings at their orchard.

For the past six years, one Michigan family has shared their organic fruit at a local farmers market, but now their religious beliefs are standing in the way of that tradition.

The kerfuffle between Steve Tennes, who owns a 120-acre orchard in Charlotte, Michigan, and the city officials in East Lansing-which is more than 20 miles away-began when he expressed his views on gay marriage in a Facebook post last year….

East Lansing officials decided to ban the Tennes family from participating in this year’s farmers market…citing the city’s antidiscrimination ordinance that covers sexual orientation….

So now the Tennes family is suing East Lansing for religious discrimination.     -theblaze.com

Foster Care Workers Ordered to Affirm LGBT Lifestyles

Foster care workers and families in Illinois must allow gay and transgender youth to express and explore their chosen identity and sexual orientation, according to a new state governmental directive.

Termination is among the penalties workers with the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) would face for violating the policy, the DCFS said in its new rules added May 11 as Appendix K to the state foster care policy manual….

Foster care caseworkers and caregivers must use “an affirming approach” in facilitating a child’s “exploration of any [LGBT] matters” and must be “open, nonjudgmental, and empathetic,” the new rule stipulates….

DCFS arranged foster care to 39,595 children in fiscal year 2016, according to the Executive Statistical Summary released in April 2017.  -Diana Chandler, BAPTIST PRESS

San Diego Schools Sued Over Pro-Islam Campaign

Six parents have sued the San Diego school district, alleging that its pro-Islam campaign favors Islam over other religions and grants special protections to Muslim students.

Charles LiMandri, an attorney for the parents, called  the campaign a “politically correct solution to a problem that does not exist.”…

The multiyear plan includes ensuring staff calendars include Muslim holidays, reviewing library materials on Muslim culture, providing resources to teachers and engaging in partnerships with the Council on American Islamic Relations.

The district also plans to consider high school clubs that promote American Muslim culture, create “safe spaces” for students, and train staff about Muslim culture.  The district is reviewing internal staff calendars to make sure Muslim holidays are recognized….

The lawsuit filed…in federal court says the policy violates the U.S. Constitution by endorsing a religion.  It asks a judge to halt the policy immediately while the merits of the claim are considered.  -onenewsnow.com

Is Islam a Religion of Peace?

When Muslims claim that their faith is a religion of peace, what do they mean?

WND.com (June 5, 2017) reports that “the religion of peace” struck again [June 3] in London, when three terrorists drove a van into a crowd of pedestrians on London Bridge, then jumped out and reportedly shouted, “This is for Allah,” as they stabbed passersby with knives.

“With seven more dead and 48 more wounded in the latest attack, it’s hard for many to believe Islam is truly a religion of peace, as many politicians and media figures have claimed.”

“But Islam is a religion of peace, according to a former Homeland Security officer who specialized in Islamic theology and the strategy and tactics of the global Islamic movement.  It’s just that the Muslim definition of peace is different than the Western one.

“Peace is defined by pledging loyalty to shariah law,” said Philip Haney, who worked in Customs and Border Protection.  “They define everything that they do based on their loyalty to the principles of shariah law, and it’s a component of shariah that peace is not possible within this world we live in until shariah law is established.  So I tell people tongue-in-cheek that Islam is a religion of peace, just not right now.  It will be when shariah law is implemented, but not until then.”

“Haney, coauthor of See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad, said the Quran mandates warfare until the entire world submits to Islam-and once everyone lives under shariah law, that will be the definition of peace.”

This sounds similar to the communist definition of peace that we used to hear in the 1980s- “communism wants peace: a piece of this and a piece of that.”

To be sure, when talking about countries in the Eastern Hemisphere, words like “peace” and “freedom” and “rights” have different meanings from ours in America.

Islam wants all nations to live by Islamic law, which is another way of saying Islam wants to enslave the world.

Prophecy in the News: Sister Hatune Dogan: ISIS is Islam, Islam is ISIS – VIDEO

We hear so much nonsense that claims there are radical sects of Islam, and there are peaceful ones.  Islam actually means “submission,”  and their global goal is for everyone to submit to their god Allah.  Furthermore, Isis is NOT some extreme radical wing of Islam – it is classic Islam.  Too many are totally ignorant of history and Islam’s past.  What their founding “prophet” Mohammad did, is what they desire to do today.  Furthermore, their ideology can be seen throughout Europe.  Immigrate, saturate and dominate.  They do not intend to assimilate.  This nun’s brief You Tube presentation below reveals a perfect understanding of Islam, and their desire to persecute Christians and Jews until there are none.

In Christ, Pastor Steve  <><

 

DEFENDING CHRISTIANS – Watch this short video of Sister Hatune Dogan who has been on the ground and witnessed the devastation of ancient Christian communities. She’s listened to survivors tell how Christians and Yazidi women are being sold into sex slavery. It is truly heart-breaking. This is why we should be concerned about Islam taking over in America and coming in by the thousands as refugees

Bill Salus    ~    The Roots Of Mideast Conflict

There are 26 speakers and 54 messages in this prophecy conference.  We are living in fascinating times.  We are living well within the end times.  The greatest sign that we are living in the end times is that all these signs are converging rapidly upon us.  Christ’s return is very immanent.  Bill has a website that updates prophecy on a daily basis:  ProphecyDepot.com   Jeremiah 49:34-39 deals with prophecies that have been overlooked.  There are prophetic implications regarding Iran and nuclear armaments.

The Roots Of The Mideast Conflict

What Believers Need To Know

Why Americans Need To Prepare

The hostilities experienced in the Middle East between the Arabs and Jews go back nearly 4,000 years to God’s covenant with Abraham.  Due to the inherent blessings contained within this covenant, the infamous Bible characters Hagar, Ishmael, Esau, Moab, Ammon, and Amalak coveted the rich contents of this covenant.  They came to hate the Hebrews, who were heirs of this blessed covenant.  Ultimately, they conceived a cleverly disguised religious package giving it license to unleash itself in a holy war.  The Jihad, as it is often labeled, presently underway in the Middle East, finds its justification in Islam, but its roots are in this longstanding hatred.  There is a spiritual nature to this conflict.  When diplomacy fails, wars begin, and diplomacy has failed.  Psalm 83 (written by Asaph, King David’s worship leader) will resolve the Israeli Arab conflict.  Asaph was also a prophet and a seer.  Psalm 83 tells us that the nations around Israel will form a confederacy against them, and their goal is to destroy Israel.  This Psalm refers to the Edomites, Ammonites, Amalakites and Assyrians.  Isis could also be part of Psalm 83.  Jacob’s name was changed to Israel, which means one who wrestles with God and prevails.  Esau fathered the Edomites in southern Jordan.  Olam Ebah  Ancient Hatred – Perpetual Enmity.  This is a hostility that will not go away.  The Edomites originated this hatred, referred to in Ezekiel 35:5.  The Edomites felt cheated in the Abrahamic Covenant.  Genesis 12:1-3  Abraham was promised an innumerable amount of descendants.

The perpetual enmity between Edom and Israel is mentioned again in Numbers 20:20-21.  Jeremiah and Obadiah prophesied that Edom would be despised among men and small among the nations.

Islam renews the ancient hatred of Israel. Israel is born as a nation on May 14, 1948.  The Arabs fight them immediately.  The Arabs fight them again in June, 1967.  The third transgression was the 1973 Yom Kippur War.  Perhaps the fourth and final transgression will be in Psalm 83.  Jerusalem is not mentioned in the Koran.  Zechariah 12:2  “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem.”  Israel will have initial success against their enemies.

2015 Second Orlando Prophecy Summit, Part 61

Dr. Gary Frazier    ~    The Isis Crisis and You

Gary has made 187 trips to Israel.  He is a pastor and a Southern Baptist evangelist.  (He is leaving for #188 trip to Israel after the conference).

People are beheaded, dumped into mass graves because they will not renounce Christ, and burned alive.  Why are they doing this, and what should be an appropriate response from us?

FACT: 1  We are the Terminal generation!

Jesus tells us this begins with the return of the Jews to their land.  Matthew 24:32-33  Learn the lesson from the fig tree (Israel).  In the last days, Israel would be gathered back into their land.  1948 was the year that Israel once again became a nation.  A generation is 100 years.  We need to always be ready for Christ’s return.

FACT: 2  World will turn against Israel and the Jews!

There are antisemitic feelings against the Jews in our nation and all around the world.  It is satanically driven.  Zechariah 12:2-3.  God will protect Israel.  This passage refers to the Tribulation Period.

FACT: 3  We are engaged in 2 wars!  Physical and Spiritual!

Physical against Satanic religion of Islam!  Islam is determined to rule the world.  I John 2:22.  One fourth of the world is Islamic. Biologically, they are exploding while the west is dying.  Europe has 1.3 children per family.  The United States has 1.6 children per family.  A Muslim woman has 8-14 children.  They know they will win through biological growth.  We will never win this war.  But God will step out of heaven and fight for Israel.  Ezekiel 38-39.

We are fighting a spiritual war as well.  We are fighting against Satan and his demons.  Most American Christians are not engaged in spiritual warfare.  Ephesians 6:10-17.  We are all under spiritual attack.  Over 1,000 churches are closing their doors every year in America.  Every 13 minutes in England a church closes, and every 18 minutes in England a Mosque opens.  Most of God’s army is totally disengaged from the conflict.  Many Christians fail to share the Gospel with people.  If you are willing to fight the fight, you will see God do unbelievable things.  People are held bound by the religion of Islam, and we need to intercede.  Muslims can go to heaven only if they kill a Jew or die as a martyr.

FACT: 4  People inside/outside church are uninformed & disengaged!

Many really do not have a clue about what is going on.  They would say they are Christians.  There is no longer a premium on the teaching and preaching of the Word of God.  People desire only to be entertained.  We have more Bible knowledge available than ever, yet we are living in the most spiritually ignorant generation in our nation’s history.  The falling away reveals that we are the Terminal generation.

We have fallen in love with the world and think we are safe from the coming danger!  Americans believe Isis a war fought only upon foreign soil.  The fact is, it is coming to our nation.  There are sleeper cells ready to engage at a moment’s notice.  I John 2:15.  Love of the world will make you spiritually blind.

FACT: 5  We have been brainwashed with Love/Tolerance/Political Correctness.

It is creeping in the churches now.  We do not want to offend anyone.  Let us not talk about homosexual marriage, etc.  Truth, however, always offends.  Unrepentant sinners will attack the messenger.  Isaiah 55:11.  God’s Word never comes back void.  God’s love and His truth must have balance in our lives.  Do not read books about the Bible more than you read the Bible.  The power for Godly living is found in the Word of God.  Jude 3.  …”contend for the faith…”

Israel= hatred= Barbaric acts terrorism i.e. 9-11= Military response= Increased terror= Confused responses= Increased terror/beheadings= Rage, cries of action= More hideous acts/crucifixions of children, human torches= Desensitizing= fear/trembling peoples and nations= economic crisis= war!

This war is never going to end, and war drains the economy.

There is only ONE religion that advocates and rewards acts of violence and terror:  ISLAM.  Their goal is to dominate the world.  They will arrive even at the White House.  (Have they already arrived at the White House?).  Radical Islam are actually the ones who are reading and obeying the Koran.  Obedient radical Muslims are killing those who do not submit to the Koran.

There is only one nation that has pledged to destroy Israel: IRAN.

You will never resolve a religious problem with a political solution.

We will never win the world to Jesus, nor will we win this war! Matthew 7:13 “…broad is the way to destruction, narrow is the road to eternal life and there be few who find it.”

We will not win the world to Jesus, nor will we win this war against Islam.  We will not win the world to Jesus, but we can win one!

 

True Christians can say yes to the following three questions:

Do you have a desire to be more like Christ?  Do you have a love for the Word of God?  When you are alone, do you pray?
