Christian Apologetics toward Islam and Missions to Muslims

Islam’s True Character

Listen to today’s broadcast:

hijabToday I want to talk to you about two news items that show the true character of Islam. The first item I want to deal with is a ruling by a federal judge against Abercrombie & Fitch. Abercrombie & Fitch has a policy against employees wearing head coverings while working. This is a company-wide policy that applies to all employees.

The judge in this case was appointed by President Obama. The ruling said the a Muslim’s civil rights were violated by A&F. In 2011 the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) brought a lawsuit against A&F, a clothing company found in many malls, for religious discrimination for firing a nine-teen year old Muslim girl for waring a hijab while working at a norther California store. The hijab is the head scarf Muslim women often wear (see picture with this article). The purpose of the hijab is to give some modesty, which is a good thing. This is not the same thing as the veil or the burka that some Muslim women wear.

This girl was fired because she would not comply with the company policy I mentioned above about workers not wearing a head covering. They were not targeting her because of her religion. The EEOC brought the suit base upon the fact that companies are required to accommodate the sincere religious views or practices of their employees.

I just have two questions. The first, which I did not mention on the broadcast is, Why would a Muslim girl, who is religious enough to wear a hijab, want to work in a store that emphasized clothing that would be offensive to Muslims and would not be allowed in a strict Muslim country? Look at the A&F looks page from their website.

The second question is, What about the religious beliefs of the employer? For example, Hobby Lobby, a Christian company, is fighting the Obamacare mandate which forces Christian companies to pay for the abortions of their employees. One of the foundational principles of America is freedom of religion. We have laws protecting the employees, but we don’t protect the religious rights of employers.

Judge Yvonne Gonzales Rogers ruled that A&F is liable for failing to accommodate the Muslim girl’s religious beliefs and may owe punitive damages. The judge’s husband, Matthew Rogers, has served in various positions in the Obama administration, including being on Obama’s transition team.

Another interesting fact in this story is that she was represented in the lawsuit by CAIR. It has been proven in court that CAIR is a front group for the Muslim Brotherhood. CAIR is also an un-indited co-conspirator in the largest fund-raising trial for raising support for Hamas.

This is just the start of what is coming. This kind of thing has been going on in England for some time. The next thing we will see is lawsuits against Christian people for wearing a cross on a necklace in the workplace. The lawsuits will claim that the cross is offensive to Muslims. The first step is to make it legal for Muslims to wear their religious garb in the workplace. The second is to make it illegal for Christians to wear theirs. It has happened in Europe, and it is coming here if we don’t wake up and do something about it. We are in a cultural war. Relativism, Political Correctness, and equality is killing our cultural identity. There was a time when emigrants were expected to assimilate into our culture. They were expected to adopt our dress, our customs, etc. and become Americans. Those who came here were grateful to be here and were willing to assimilate into our culture. If you go to a Muslim country they are going to demand that you assimilate into their culture.

The second news item I want to talk about is the fighting in the Philippines. Last month, Nur Misuari, Leader of the Moro National Liberation Front, declared an independent Muslim state in the southern Philippines.

An army of 180 Muslim insurgents have attacked the Christian city of Zamboanga in the south and have taken over 100 hostages. The Philippine government has responded by sending over 1,000 troupes and they have surrounded the Muslim jihadists. This has been going on for more than a week and some 50 people have been killed so far. More than 60,000 people have fled their homes because of this. Zamboanga is the sixth largest city in the Philippines, and a vital hub for the economy of the south.

The group behind this is the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF). The MNLF started its armed campaign against the central government back in the early 1970s. Its leader, Nur Misuari who was the governor of an autonomous region for five years. The leader of this small army which has attacked Zamboanga is believed to be led by Habier Malik, a veteran MNLF commander. He is known to be a loyal supporter of Nur Misuari. However, the MNLF leader has denied authorizing this latest operation. Never-the-less the Philippine military still believe Nur Misuari is responsible. The authorities are considering laying criminal charges against him, although his exact whereabouts are unknown. The MNLF gunmen in Zamboanga have said they are fighting for an independent state.

Here are two links to articles on this subject: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-24079198 http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-24079198

Both of these news items are examples of Islam. They show that this so-called “peaceful religion” is anything but peaceful. They will fight in the courts and on the battlefield to submit (the meaning of Islam) all others to their Shariah Law.

When is the last time you heard of Christians or Jews acting in this manner? This is common among the Islamic people. Why do they do this? It is the example given them by their Profit, Muhammad. This is the way Islam was spread by the early califs. They went out and conquered lands and then forced those they conquered to convert to Islam or die. .

We have been hearing a lot about Syria in the news. Have you ever asked how Syria became an Islamic state? Syria was one of the first Christian state, and remained so for over 600 years. The first translations of the Bible were Syriac. Muhammad was first exposed to Christianity by making caravan trips into Syria from Arabia. We must ask, did Syria choose to become an Islamic state? Syria was taken under the Calif Umar and forced by the sword to become an Islamic state. It was not a choice, it was forced upon them by the sword of “peaceful” Islam.

They carried the sword across north Africa and into Spain and tried to take the rest of Europe. They were finally stopped by Charles Martel in the battle of Poitiers.

It is the true character of Islam!
