I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard someone say that Islam is a religion of peace. They pose no threat to anyone. All they want is to live in peace and enjoy the same freedoms and privileges that we do.
I didn’t believe it then and certainly don’t believe it now.
What I see of the religion of peace is an entire culture taught that anyone that is not a Muslim is an infidel and the Quran tells them that infidels should be killed. I’ve read and talked to many Muslims from countries like Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Pakistan who all say the same thing that they were taught as young boys to hate Christians, Jews and especially Americans.
I worked with a man who spent every penny he had to smuggle him and his family out of Iran back with Jimmy Carter was president and in the heart of the Tehran hostage situation. He was a licensed doctor, but the US would not recognize his medical license, so he worked with me at a hardware-lumber store. We often talked and he told me how in school growing up, all of the boys (girls were not allowed to attend school) were taught to hate America. It was drilled into them day after day after day that their goal in life should be to grow up and help destroy America and they would be a hero if they were martyred in the process.
America has witnessed Muslim attacks including Benghazi and the murder of 4 Americans. Let’s not forget the attack on the USS Cole; the 1983 attack on the US Embassy in Beirut that killed 63 and injured 120 more. Then there was the first attack on the World Trade Center in New York in 1993 that killed 6; the attack on the US Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998 that killed 224 and injured over 4000 others. We all remember September 11, 2001 when Muslim extremists commandeered 4 passenger airliners that were used to attack the two World Trade Centers, the Pentagon and a fourth failed attempt that all toll killed over 3,000 and wounded thousands of others.
But don’t feel that we are the sole targets of the world’s peaceful Muslims. They have launched attacks on Israel, one of which killed the Israeli Olympic team at the 1972 Munich Olympics.
In case you need to see just how peaceful and respectful Muslims are of others, take a look at this video. It was taken by a Muslim who was part of a mob that vandalized and desecrated a cemetery that contained the remains of British and Italian soldiers killed during World War 2. The cemetery just happens to be located in Benghazi, where the same peaceful Muslims attacked the US Embassy last year.
These Muslims show no respect for the fallen men who died in war. If anyone did that to a Muslim cemetery, the entire Muslim world community would be up in arms demanding the death of those involved. Islam is the most intolerant religion in the world and they continually prove that by their actions.
Muslims expect us to welcome them with open arms and believe that nothing will change after they move into the neighborhood. But look at places like Dearborn, Michigan which has the largest enclave of Muslims in the US. They are taking over the city government, the schools and even public events like fairs. Muslim judges have already issued rulings based upon sharia law which went against American law.
Islam is not a religion of peace and they don’t want just to move in and be part of our neighborhoods. They have an agenda to convert America into the United States of Allah and I guarantee that we Christians will be more persecuted than ever before.
