Why is this happening? Could it be that Islam is showing its inability to meet the needs of their society? News casters and political analysts worry over the potential of other Moslem extremists leaders rising up to fill the holes in leadership. No one wants to state the fact that Islam is a failed system that oppresses its followers and creates an oppressive environment in countries where Sharia law reigns.
As the scripture states,
Isa 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
Isa 5:21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes And clever in their own sight!
This sums it all up in a nut shell. We refuse to call a spade a spade. Islam is the furthest thing from a peace loving religion. There, I have said it. We take this wishy washy posture politically, socially, morally and spiritually. We seem to believe that the bad Moslem extremists are the ones to blame and that if the good moderate Moslems who are the majority would just rise to the occasion then Islam would show it’s true colors and all would be well. We would live in peace and harmony and all the world would enter the “age of Aquarius”.
So where are these majority moderate Moslems and why is their voice not heard over that of the radicals? Are they hiding for fear? Or are they really out there? If Islam is a religion of peace then why can’t they be guided by their own principles and find peace among themselves?
No matter what happens in Egypt, we can be guaranteed of one thing, Islam is not going to change. They are not going to find peace among themselves and they are certainly not going to find or make peace with Jews and Christians based upon their sacred writings.
The Koran Says:
Surah 5:51: "You who believe, do not take the Jews and Christians as allies: they are allies only to each other. Anyone who takes them as an ally becomes one of them -God does not guide such wrongdoers-"
Surah 9:5: So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
Surah 2:191: And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the recompense of the unbelievers.
Sahih Bukhari Hadith Volume 4, Book 52, Number 176: Narrated by 'Abdullah bin 'Umar: Allah's Apostle said, "You (i.e. Muslims) will fight with the Jews till some of them will hide behind stones. The stones will (betray them) saying, 'O 'Abdullah (i.e. slave of Allah)! There is a Jew hiding behind me; so kill him.'"
Sahih Bukhari Hadith Volume 4, Book 52, Number 177: Narrated by Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."
In cotrast Yeshua said.
38“You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.’ 39“But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. 40“If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also.41“Whoever forces you to go one mile, go with him two. 42“Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you.
43“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44“But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46“For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47“If you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? 48“Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect."
This is quite a different rhetoric than the Koran. So be wise in your discernment and watch carefully as things transpire in the world of Islam and judge it by it’s fruit. I do.
