Christian Apologetics toward Islam and Missions to Muslims

NYC mayor candidates to allow Muslim Holidays in Schools

Listen to today’s broadcast:

AmericanJusticeAbout a week ago I mentioned that there is a move by Muslims to get the schools to close for Muslim holidays. The two most important Muslim holidays are Eid al-Fitr, the end of Ramadan and Eid al-Adha, the festival of the sacrifice at the end of the Hajj.

I want to remind you that this is not a Muslim country. Muslims are a small minority in this nation. The most liberal figure for the number of Muslims living in the US is about 10,000,000. This is an inflated number. It is the number that Muslims want us to believe. The State Department has the number closer to 6,000,000. Canada has about 3,000,000 Muslims. While the number of Muslims in North America is very small, their influence is huge. It is only huge because we allow it to be so.

There are about 6,000,000 Jews in America. We don’t see them trying to push their value system on us. They are not pushing for the observance of their holidays in our public schools.

Muslims are trying to force us to observe their holidays. The trend where ever you find concentrations of Muslims is to force their values upon the rest of the community. We saw this in Europe. Remember, I grew up in Europe and was a missionary in the U.K. I lived in Europe for 29 years and I have seen first hand how Islam has been slowly taking over control in Europe.

Al Jazeera TV is now in the United States. They bought Al Gore’s cable network called Current TV. A conservative wanted to buy it but he would not sell it to a conservative. Instead he sold it to the Muslim conglomerate, Al Jazeera. This network is pumping Muslim propaganda into 4,000,000 American homes.

If you go to Al Jazeera’s website you will see that both of the candidates for mayor of New York City, Democrat and Republican, have said they will close the schools in NYC to observe the two Muslim holidays. This is a foolish mistake.

It is interesting to me that America is running to embrace multiculturalism while Europe is has tried it and is now running from it. We need to learn the lesson that Europe has learned before it is too late. It would save us a lot of trouble, and maybe save our nation from Islam.

Back in 2010 the European leaders started saying that they had made a big mistake with the idea of multiculturalism which treats every culture as equal, and by not expecting immigrants who come into their nations to assimilate into their new culture. Multiculturalism is a doctrine that came in after WWII, The countries of Europe have been practicing this for over 70 years. They are all now saying that this was a bad mistake.

Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, said, “Attempts to build a multicultural Society in Germany have utterly failed…..it was obvious that immigrants from different cultures like Turkey and Arab countries, all in all, find it harder to integrate.” She did not exactly call out the Muslims by name, but who are these immigrants from Turkey and Arab countries? Everyone knew she was targeting Muslims.

Not too much later, British Prime Minister, David Cameron piped in saying, “European countries must wake up to what’s happening within their borders. We have even tolerated these segregated communities behaving in ways that run counter to our values. Britain has become a forcing house for the ideology of Islamist extremism.”

French President Nicholas Sarkozy joined the chorus, “We have been too concerned about the identity of the person who was arriving and not enough about the identity of the country that was receiving him.”

You would think that the host nation receiving immigrants would be the sovereign nation and that its laws and customs would be upheld. The immigrant is choosing to come live in the host country. He is the guest. In multiculturalism the host country acts like the immigrant has the authority and not the host country. Sarkosy was right, we have been too concerned about identity of the immigrant and not enough about the identity of the host country.

Sarkozy continued, “If you come to France, you accept to melt into a single community, which is the national community…and if you do not want to accept that, you cannot be welcome in France.

“Our Muslim compatriots must be able to practice their religion, as any citizen can….but we in France do not want people to pray in an ostentatious way in the street.”

Sarkozy banned praying in the streets because they were blocking traffic without permits. They were doing this to force their Muslim way upon the French people. He also stopped the women from wearing the burka in public and the using of halal meat in the public schools. This is what got Sarkozy voted out of office. The liberal Francois Hollande was voted in by Muslims.

Perhaps the most outspoken of all is the Dutch politician that is rising in popularity and picked to be the next Prime Minister of Holland, Geert Wilder. He said at the Four Seasons Hotel in New York in September of 2008,

“I come to America with a mission. All is not well in the old world. There is a tremendous danger looming, and it is very difficult to be optimistic. We might be in the final stages of the Islamization of Europe. This not only is a clear and present danger to the future of Europe itself, it is a threat to America and the sheer survival of the West. The danger I see looming is the scenario of America as the last man standing. The United States as the last bastion of Western civilization, facing an Islamic Europe. In a generation or two, the US will ask itself: who lost Europe?”

Let me give you some ways that the Muslims are forcing their ways on the British people, who are non-Muslims.

We now have, in Muslim communities, Yellow Sticker zones stating that we are entering a “Shariah Controlled Zone.” The police have been taking these down because the Muslims have no right to enforce Shariah on non-Muslims. It is true that they have government approved Shariah courts in the U.K. What this says is that we, as a sovereign nation, have laws that apply to all of our people except Muslims. This empowers the Muslims to live by their own legal system and not by the legal system of the U.K. This is a huge mistake.

If a woman walks into one of these Muslim communities without a head scarf it is likely that she will be bullied by the Muslims. They will try to force her to conform to the Muslim ways even though she is not a Muslim.

We are talking about the nation that is mother to our nation. They are loosing their heritage.

Paul Diamond, Britain’s top lawyer for human and Christian rights, wrote an article for the PJ Media, entitled, Sharia Law Already Devouring UK. He described a number of shocking cases that he has handled recently. One was a London Church being closed due to a Muslim’s complaint.

He wrote, An interesting case of mine involved a church in a part of the country declared a “Sharia law controlled zone.” The church had existed for about 150 years, but it was served with a noise pollution notice for the singing of hymns on a Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m. As the notice was served, the council officer said: “This is a Muslim area.” (Naturally, this statement was denied in court.)

However, it was the court experience which was most disturbing; the local court was in an area with a high Muslim population, and the majority of the judges hearing the case were Muslim. The court closed the church. I thought the only image missing from the scene was about 200 mullahs demonstrating outside the court for the death of the infidels. The case was appealed, and moved to a district that was predominantly English (where the appeal court was situated). The court opened the church.

I called Mr. Diamond and interviewed him for my radio program in December, 2011. He described the situation in Britain as ‘Grim’ and that his work is very dangerous.

He also handled a case where a nurse was fired from her job because she was wearing a cross at work. She was told that she could no longer wear a cross at work because it might offend Muslims.

Muslims can still wear their religious garb, but a Christian cannot wear something that identifies them as a Christian.

Diamond also represented an employee from British Airways that was told the same thing. She was fired from her job because she refused to stop wearing her cross.

Are you hearing what I am saying? In the U.K. Islam is taking over. This is just a small sample of the ways that Muslims are forcing their ways upon the British people. You give them an inch and they will take a mile.

If you tell them that in New York they can have their holidays the next thing you know is they will be telling us that we have to stop eating during Ramadan because it will offend Muslim students at their school. They will push the limits again and again until they force their ways upon us.

This is not a wise move by these two candidates in New York. Open your eyes and learn the lesson of Europe. If we don’t learn from Europe’s mistakes we will be doomed to repeat them.
