Nothing could be further from the truth than what comes across as a contest between Democrats and Republicans. In reality, two distinct and immutable religions – Christianity and Secularism – are vying for ideological supremacy in the public square. A better labeling would read: America is smack-dab in the middle of a ‘cultural civil war’. Eventually, one worldview will triumph over the other.
This is by no means a new historical phenomenon, as Spurgeon informs us: “A medal was struck by Diocletian, which still remains, bearing the inscription, ‘The name of Christians being extinguished’. And in Spain, [a] monumental pillar [was] raised, on which [was] written: ‘Diocletian Jovian Maximian Herculeus Caesares Augusti, for having adopted Galerius in the east, for having everywhere abolished the superstition of Christ, for having extended the worship of the gods.’ As a modern writer has elegantly observed: ‘We have here a monument raised by Paganism, over the grave of its vanquished foe. But in this ‘the people imagined a vain thing’; so far from being deceased, Christianity was on the eve of its final and permanent triumph, and the stone guarded a sepulcher empty as the urn that Electra washed with her tears. Neither in Spain, nor elsewhere, can be pointed out the burial place of Christianity; it is not, for the living have no tomb.’” 
Modern Christendom is inclined to blame “humanists, pagans and Muslims, Marxists or other groups for the state of our culture and its idolatrous turn, but God calls His people to first take a long hard look at themselves in accounting for the decline of our social order.” 
America’s founders understood the basic fact that virtue and liberty are inseparably linked, and that freedom “cannot long be preserved in the absence of virtue among the people and their representatives.” 
Liberty depends upon virtue, and virtue depends upon Christianity.
These truths have now been stripped from government-controlled education. Christians have surrendered the ministry of civil government to secularists, who are in rebellion against God. Secularism has brought to bear its own religious, ethical, and political doctrines in America.
Under the influence of pietism the scope of spiritual engagement in America has been reduced to “his or her personal life, family life, and the affairs of the church as an ecclesiastical organization.”  No wonder that Secularism managed to hijack the founders’ master plan. Americans want God’s help, but not His holiness. The nation reckons that it is useful to have God on its side. To honor God, to all appearances, we attend church on Christmas and Easter, say a prayer for the right parking spot, or ask the pastor to bless a marriage or a new home. But what we really want is a God who will help us to get our own way. We call for a God to help us getting things done, as long as we can keep our own views and live our own lives. 
As a result, America has reached a tipping point as God is beginning to assign His time-tested veterans to the front ranks. This battle for the Soul of America will unfold over the next thirty years, and God’s plans are not transparent. A.W. Pink describes the spirit and training of those whom God is moving to the frontlines.  “It is this very loneliness of the saint that serves to make manifest the genuineness of his faith. There is nothing remarkable in one believing what all his associates believe, but to have faith when surrounded by skeptics, is something noteworthy. To stand alone, to be the solitary champion of a righteous cause when all others are federatedunto evil, is a rare sight. Yet such was Rahab. There were none in Jericho with whom she could have fellowship, none there to encourage her heart and strengthen her hands by their godly counsel and example: all the more opportunity for her to prove the sufficiency of Divine grace! Scan slowly the list presented in Hebrews 11, and then recall the recorded circumstances of each. With whom did Abel, Enoch, Noah have spiritual communion? From what brethren did Joseph, Moses, Gideon receive any help along the way? Who were the ones who encouraged and emboldened Elijah, Daniel, Nehemiah? Then think it not strange that you are called to walk almost if not entirely alone, that you meet with scarcely any like-minded or any who are capable of giving you a lift along the road.”
Secularism’s destruction of America’s once biblically-based culture can be counteracted by:
• Reestablishing prayer in America’s churches, led by the senior pastor.
• Men and Women of Issachar running for local office: city councils, school boards, parks and recreation, etc.
[Please note that filing deadlines in many parts of the country take place in June. Pastors who don’t feel called to run are requested to recruit a member of their congregation.]
Gideons and Rahabs are now moving toward the civil government frontline. “It will require courage, fortitude and unwavering biblical faithfulness to rouse the church again to her mission in a generation that has lost its way in idolatry, and where a many prophet and priest have said ‘peace peace, when there is no peace’ (Jeremiah 6:14).”

Pastor Rick Warren’s Prayer at Barack Obama’s first inauguration
The down sized generic 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
We are witnessing the extinction of a culture in Western Europe. The glue of Christianity has ceased to exist in Western Europe, and now that Europe has turned secular, the skid is greased for the advance of Islam. Islam cannot enter a Christian nation, but only a vacuum, which is exactly what is found in Europe. What the extremely uninformed and naïve Europeans do not realize, however, is that once Islam gets a firm foothold on the continent, then, like the fifty seven (57) Islamic states, Islam alone will become the state religion of European nations. Just like the seven (7) churches in Asia Minor, mentioned in Revelation 2-3, Europe likewise is leaving their Christian base for the religion of Islam and mandatory Sharia Law! Even So, Come Lord Jesus, Pastor Steve <><
Europe’s Civilizational Exhaustion
By Giulio Meotti/Gatestone Institute April 12, 2018
Share this article:
In a prophetic conference held in Vienna on May 7, 1935, the philosopher Edmund Husserl said, “The greatest danger to Europe is tiredness”. Eighty years later, the same fatigue and passivity still dominate Western European societies.
It is the sort of exhaustion that we see in Europeans’ falling birth rates, the mushrooming public debt, chaos in the streets, and Europe’s refusal to invest resources in its security and military might.
Last month, in a Paris suburb, the Basilica of Saint Denis, where France’s Christian kings are buried, was occupied by 80 migrants and pro-illegal-immigration activists. The police had to intervene to free the site.
Stephen Bullivant, a professor of theology and the sociology of religion at St Mary’s University in London, recently published a report, “Europe’s Young Adults and Religion”:
“Christianity as a default, as a norm, is gone, and probably gone for good – or at least for the next 100 years,” Bullivant said.
According to Bullivant, many young Europeans “will have been baptised and then never darken the door of a church again. Cultural religious identities just aren’t being passed on from parents to children. It just washes straight off them… “And we know the Muslim birthrate is higher than the general population, and they have much higher [religious] retention rates.”
Richard Dawkins, an atheist and the author of The God Delusion, responded to the study’s release by tweeting to his millions of Twitter followers:
Before we rejoice at the death throes of the relatively benign Christian religion, let’s not forget Hilaire Belloc’s menacing rhyme:
“Always keep a-hold of nurse
For fear of finding something worse.”
Dawkins is apparently concerned that that after the demise of Christianity in Europe, there will not be an atheistic utopia, but a rising Islam.
That is the major point of what Philippe Bénéton in his book The Moral Disorder of the West (“Le dérèglement moral de l’Occident”): Islam is filling the cultural vacuum of a society with no children and which believes — wrongly — it has no enemies.
According to Radio Sweden, fewer newborns in that country are being baptized due to the demographic shift. By 2050, almost one in three people in Sweden will be Muslim, according to a recent Pew report
The European mainstream mindset now seems to believe that “evil” comes only from our own sins: racism, sexism, elitism, xenophobia, homophobia, the guilt of the heterosexual white Western male –and never from non-European cultures.
So Europe now postulates an infinite idealization of the “other”, above all the migrant. The heritage and legacy of Western civilization gets sectioned off piece by piece so that nothing remains; our values are mocked and our survival instinct is inhibited. It is a process of decomposition that Europe’s political authorities seem to have decided to mediate, as if it were inevitable.
In German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s major speech in the Bundestag after the unprecedentedly long and difficult process of forming a new government, she struck a conciliatory tone on immigration while offering an inclusive message on Islam. “With 4.5 million Muslims living with us, their religion, Islam, has also become a part of Germany”, she said.
The most powerful politician in Europe capitulated: she evidently forgot (again) the difference between the civil rights of individuals, which Muslim citizens enjoy in Germany, and the sources of a national identity, on which Europe is based: humanistic, Judeo-Christian values.
This realization may why a week earlier the new German Interior minister, Horst Seehofer, said that “Germany has been shaped by Christianity” and not by Islam.
Europe’s tiredness can also be seen in a generational conflict embodied in the alarming rise of public debt. In Italy, the political establishment was recently shaken up by the election of two major populist parties. It is a country with a public debt of 40,000 euros per capita, and a tax burden equal to 43.3% of GDP.
The average age of the population is the third oldest in the world, together with one of the lowest birthrates on the planet, one of the lowest retirement ages in Europe and the highest social security spending-to-GDP ratio in the Western world. It is also a country where pensions account for one-third of all public spending and where the percentage of pensioners in proportion to workers will rise from 37% today to 65% in 2040 (from three workers who support one pensioner to three workers who support two pensioners).
An Islamist challenge to this tired and decaying society could be a decisive one. Only Europe’s Christian population is barren and aging. The Muslim population is fertile and young. “In most European countries–including England, Germany, Italy and Russia, Christian deaths outnumbered Christian births from 2010 to 2015,” writes the Wall Street Journal.
Terrorist attacks will continue in Europe. Recently, in Trèbes, southern France, a jihadist took hostages in a supermarket and claimed allegiance to ISIS. It seems that Europe’s societies consider themselves so strong and their ability to absorb mass immigration so extensive, that nothing will prevent them from believing they can assimilate and manage terrorist acts as they have automobile fatalities or natural disasters.
A tiredness also seems to be why these countries do not take meaningful measures to defeat jihadism, such as closing Salafist mosques or expelling radical imams.
Muslim extremists understand this advantage: so long as they avoid another enormous massacre like 9/11, they will be able to continue murdering people and undermining the West without awakening it from its inertia.
The most likely scenario is that everything will continue: the internal fracture of Europe, two parallel societies and the debasement of Western culture. Piece by piece, European society seems to be coming irreparably apart.
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
Share this article:
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.

Videos promoting ISIS and violent jihad can be found on YouTube. So can those of the KKK, communists and antifa.
But the Bible lessons and radio interviews posted on the personal channel of Carl Gallups, a popular pastor and author, can’t.
They’ve been censored by the Internet giant. Pulled down. Dropped.
According to Gallups, the channel was terminated over Thanksgiving weekend without explanation, even though there had been no “marks” against it and he rigorously followed the rules.
It’s not the first time a faith-focused or conservative-oriented channel has been censored by YouTube. At least three other major cases developed this year, against columnists Michelle Malkin, Michael Brown and Dennis Prager, all of whom have conservative views.
Nor is it the only time there’s been a hint that the company is not fond of conservative thought. An undercover video by Project Veritas captured Earnest Pettie, the brand and diversity curation lead at YouTube, admitting he helped “push to the top” the videos of an editor for the left-leaning New York Times.
“In very rare cases, we will try to make up for the fact that something isn’t in the trending tab,” Pettie said. “We will, like, use some type of intervention … to encourage the thing to be there.”
See Carl Gallups’ library of work, in “When the Lion Roars,” “The Rabbi Who Found Messiah,” “Be Thou Prepared,” “The Magic Man in the Sky” and “Final Warning,” all at the WND Superstore.
He said “algorithms do control everything but sometimes you need humans to provide a check.”
Gallups told WND he tried to get an explanation from YouTube, because his channel was “in perfect standing (all green)” immediately prior to its termination.
He noted that there was no warning, and while YouTube has a “three strikes” policy, “We never even received strike 1.”
“YouTube gave no explanation at all for this termination but rather, after repeated requests for an explanation, simply referred us to their ‘Terms and Conditions’ page,” he said.
YouTube declined to respond to a WND request for comment.
Gallups said his channel ” was fully monetized,” explaining “we only used either our own material or music sanctioned by YouTube’s creator studio as suitable for use and monetizing.”
That means, he said, the channel’s termination “has caused great harm to our messaging ability and done irreparable damage to our relationships within the professional community.”
The channel contained his biblical videos and a few of his radio interviews.
He said he suspects he was targeted by a “flagging” effort by an activist group to generate complaints from those “who disagree with our views and opinions.”
WND reported last month a lawsuit was filed on behalf of WND columnist Dennis Prager in his fight with YouTube.
The complaint expressed outrage over how the online giants “use their restricted mode filtering not to protect younger or sensitive viewers from ‘inappropriate’ video content, but as a political gag mechanism to silence PragerU.”
Prager University, founded by Prager, is “a conservative nonprofit digital media organization that is associated with and presents the views of leading conservative experts on current and historical events.”
Liberty Counsel, which is defending Prager, explained the organization produces short videos viewed by millions that are “broadly based on Judeo-Christian values and conservative thought.”
WND commentator Michael Brown said in August that 900 of his videos were demonetized.
“Debates I had with rabbis were flagged; powerful stories, like a Muslim woman being healed by Jesus, were flagged; videos where I answered questions like, ‘Should Christians Homeschool Their Children?’ or ‘Did Jesus Claim to Be God?’ were flagged, along with videos of spiritual encouragement (like the one encouraging believers to look to the Lord in the midst of chaos),” he said. “Teaching videos were flagged (like the one explaining that the preface to the King James Version of the Bible refutes King James Onlyism), along with motivational videos (like the one where I talked about how I lost 95 lbs.). All these were flagged, along with the many videos that focused on LGBT issues or radical Islam or politics. Seriously?”
And Michelle Malkin said: “If you post videos on YouTube radicalizing Muslim viewers to kill innocent people, YouTube will leave you alone. But if you post a video on YouTube honoring innocent people murdered by barbaric jihadists, your video will get banned.”
In January, the YouTube account of the blog Legal Insurrection, by Cornell Law Professor William Jacobson, was ended.
Several years ago, a video on a channel to which Gallups contributed had been targeted, resulting in termination of the channel.
However, after a review, it was reinstated.
At that time, a source inside Google who asked not to be identified told Gallups a “coordinated flagging” campaign had occurred, which triggered the termination of the channel.
The targeted video was titled “A Call To Prayer.”
Videos posted on YouTube can be rated by viewers. An individual can click the “like” button (a “thumbs up” icon) or the dislike button (a “thumbs down” icon). A viewer also can click a “flag” icon to tell YouTube a video a certain video is “inappropriate.”
See Carl Gallups’ library of work, in “When the Lion Roars,” “The Rabbi Who Found Messiah,” “Be Thou Prepared,” “The Magic Man in the Sky” and “Final Warning,” all at the WND Superstore.
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.
Jerusalem, a Middle Eastern city west of the Dead Sea, has been a place of pilgrimage and worship for Jews, Christians and Muslims since the biblical era. Its Old City has significant religious sites around the Temple Mount compound, including the Western Wall (sacred to Judaism), the Church of the Holy Sepulchre (a Christian pilgrimage site) and the Dome of the Rock (a 7th-century Islamic shrine with a gold dome).
Jerusalem is a mosaic of different peoples, faiths, and nationalities. Nevertheless, despite this diversity, under the sovereignty of Israel, Jerusalem is a city that works. But has it always been this way?

Muslim No-Go Zones in the USA? (VIDEO)
January 08 2018
Martin Mawyer, founder of the Christian Action Network, is fighting a battle against Islamic violence. Yet he is alone in this battle. For despite the violence and unlawfulness in the mere existence of America’s Muslim “NO-go-zones”, there is no one to challenge them.
Reports have it that in Dearborn, MI over 100,000 Muslims (45% of the city!) have settled into a “no-go” zone. The area is governed by Sharia law. The Muslim authorities of the compound build as they like, create schools, and write their own curriculum. Is this their implementation of the first amendment? What about the rights of others to enter the neighborhood which should be open to the public under American law? Should they be allowed to position guards at the entrance to these compounds to keep people out?
We need some lawyers to check the legality of these no-go zones and some policemen to enforce American law there. Volunteers?
