Which of us who, upon learning that Islamist terrorists were responsible for the most horrific attack ever against America on this continent, would have believed it? Who would have believed that an American president of the United States with the middle name “Hussein” would a little over a decade later be hosting a dinner in the White House in celebration of the very religion that spawned the attacks by murderous fanatics who reportedly shouted: “Allahu Akbar” (from Arabic, literally: God is most great), just before slamming three airplanes loaded with humanity and jet fuel into the World Trade Towers and the Pentagon?
This is not to equate all who believe in the religion of Islam to being people who want to murder all others who don’t agree with them. But this is indeed meant to equate the religion itself to one whose so-called holy book—the Koran—advocates the murder of all who will not yield to the supposed edicts of their supposed god—Allah. The same president who let us know that America is no longer a Christian nation, shortly after his election in 2008, showed himself to be, if not a closet Muslim, certainly one sympathetic to Islam. His family history is steeped in the Islamist faith, even though he told us he is a “Christian.”
I must and will leave that determination to Christ and those who claim to be His followers. However, as a fruit inspector, as I believe we who name the Name of Christ are instructed to be (Matthew 7:16, 20), it is my observation that the former president’s is far from a belief system that holds to major precepts of the Christian faith. He supported abortion—the murder of children in their mother’s wombs, and even outside the mother’s wombs under certain conditions. He supported the homosexual agenda at a number of levels, including gay marriage initiatives. He advocated change in areas where God’s prescription throughout the Bible hasn’t changed—or God does not change.
It is an interesting exercise to wonder how America’s founding fathers might have reacted, should they suddenly have returned to this earthly sphere and have been confronted by the way the country has drifted from the Judaeo-Christian principles upon which they founded the nation. Even the most secular of them like—Jefferson and Franklin—I am convinced, would be absolutely amazed, and chagrined.
They would, I think, have been completely perplexed, even angered, to see a president honoring the Muslim religion’s religious holidays with a White House celebration, while consistently casting aspersions on the Christian religion and favoring the elimination of its influence throughout America at every opportunity.
The then president once celebrated Ramadan by hosting a traditional late dinner, in the State Dining Room of the White House. He remarked that throughout America’s history, “Islam has contributed to the character of our country.” In his remarks before the Iftar dinner eaten by Muslims after sunset, to end the day of fasting, the president quoted from the Koran: “As the Koran teaches, whoever does an atom’s weight of good will see its results.” Mr. Obama said, further, “Muslim-Americans and their good works have helped to build our nation, and we’ve seen the results.”
Within the Koran’s system of righteousness, “good,” is, it seems, a relative term. The only “good” that there is apparently resides within works done for the putting forward of Allah’s will—as given in the shouts the murderous terrorists screamed just before guiding the fuel-laden passenger planes into the Trade Towers: “Allahu Akbar!”
The dangers presented by inviting the Koran’s duplicitous influence upon this nation the former president claimed to love, in honoring its religion with an official state dinner while president should have been mind-blowing to any thinking American.
The following synopsis, I find, encapsulates those dangers inherent within the Koran. This excerpt was written by Frosty Wooldridge, a journalist who for many years worked and lived around Detroit, who watched Islamist influence help bring that once great city to destitution.
You have already seen it in Madrid, Spain, London, England, and Paris, France with train bombings, subway bombings and riots. As their numbers grow, so will their power to enact their barbaric Sharia Law that negates republican forms of government, first amendment rights, and subjugates women to the lowest rungs on the human ladder. We will see more honor killings by upset husbands, fathers and brothers that demand subjugation by their daughters, sisters and wives. Muslims prefer beheadings of women to scare the hell out of any other members of their sect from straying. Multiculturalism: what a perfect method to kill our language, culture, country and way of life. The God of Israel gives the penalty for following any false religious system.
“But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them; I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it” (Deuteronomy 20:17-18).
