Before I get started with the article today I want to say a word about the growth of Fortress of Faith. I am amazed at how God has blessed us. We started on one radio station in Blaine, WA and today we are on 240 stations. We have a weekend broadcast on American Family Radio and a daily broadcast that some stations carry. Some stations carry our Saturday broadcast on other days of the week.
All of this has been possible because of you, our listeners. It is your faithful support of this ministry that makes this all possible. At the time of this writing we are in our fall fund-raising campaign. Our goal this fall is $30,000. Our broadcasting expense, just for the air time, is between $70,000 and 80,000 for the year. This does not include our other expenses like production costs, what little staff we have, etc.
If you would like to be part of this ministry we have a couple of campaigns designed to fit various budgets. We have what we call sponsor a day. It takes about $200 per day to broadcast our message. In this campaign we ask people to give $200, either in a one time gift or $35 each month for six months. If we had 365 people give $200 it would cover our air time expenses.
We know that this won’t fit within the budget of many of our listeners. We have a campaign that we call our Army of Ten. This is where people sign up to give $10 a month on an ongoing basis. You may not think this is much, but these small gifts really add up. they are the life blood of this ministry.
We will be on the phones this week and if you can help in this campaign you can call us at 1-800-616-0082. If you happen to be reading this at another time and would like to be part of this ministry you can use the donation button in the menu above and choose the campaign that best suits you.
We would like to thank you in advance for anything you can do to help us. If you cannot help financially, or even if you can, you can help us by praying for us. This is a faith based ministry and we believe that prayer is the power that keeps us on the air.
Now let’s get into the subject at hand.
Today we are going to be exposing the evils and the horrors of the ideology of that’s masquerading as a religion. We know it as Islam. We will be talking about jihadists performing their acts of violence in our own country. Let me introduce our ministry to those of you who may be new to Fortress of Faith so you know where we’re coming from.
Shahram is a former Muslim from Iran. I was a missionary overseas and God has called me back to my home country to warn America about the issues of Islam. We desire to see Muslims get saved. So there are two parts to our ministry. One side of our ministry is that we are a Christian apologetic/polemic ministry taking on the issues of Islam. The other side is that we’re a Christian missionary ministry. We want to see Muslims get saved.
Folks, don’t blame Muslims for Islam. We are going to speak very forcefully and very soberly against Islam. We oppose Islam, but we don’t hate Muslims. You need to understand that. We love Muslims. Shahram is a former Muslim, and we want Muslims to come to Christ, come to the truth. We don’t hate Muslims here. There are some people out there that way. We know that and we don’t give them a platform to spew their hate. That’s not what Fortress of Faith is about.
I just wanted to say that up front because anytime people say anything critical about Islam, they’ll say (I get this even from pastors) you don’t love Muslims. Yes I do. It’s Islam that I have a big problem with.
It has been amazing to walk through the door and the opportunity that the Lord has opened for us. It is our desire to warn this nation. I think about God bringing Shahram out of Islam fifteen years ago. It was truly for such a time as this, a time of warning America and the church, and at the same time to properly and accurately share the Gospel with Muslims, to rescue them out of this darkness of Islam.
Today we are going to be talking about this darkness. We’re going to be talking about when that darkness is manifest, when that evil is manifest. Many people love to be able to categorize things that we’re seeing around the world with ISIS, Hamas, with the nations that are Islamic countries and here in America. They want to categorize it as somehow being radical Islam. As both Shahram and I have shown time and time again, this is the true Islam. We are trying to bring an accurate understanding of the ideology of Islam and how to resist it.
Today we’re going to be talking about the very first beheading of a non-Muslim on American soil. In the past there have been honor killings in America, Muslim against Muslim. There was a story a few years back of a husband who got angry with his wife. They were both Muslim, and he tried to behead her. We’re not quite sure if he completely beheaded her or not, but he tried to behead her. But what happened in Moore, Oklahoma just a few weeks ago was the very first beheading of a non-Muslim on American soil.
Because the media isn’t reporting it most people don’t know the second victim survived and was almost beheaded as well. The media reported that she was being stabbed. That’s not accurate. She was cut across her neck and she was cut across her face and she was stabbed. We’ll try not to talk about this perpetrator too much today because we want to focus on the victims. He was trying to behead her as well. The only reason he was stopped was because the plant owner had a rifle and used it to stop this jihadist.
The most shocking part I think of this whole story is once again the United States government, the military apparatus, and the law enforcement community has come out and said this attack in Oklahoma had nothing to do with Islam and waas simply workplace violence. If our listeners remember, that’s exactly what we got after Fort Hood. Major Hasan, who was shouting “Allah Akbar” as he killed thirteen people and they told us it’s just workplace violence. He just wasn’t happy.
This is nonsense. This is madness. At the end of the day, Our government is not only grossly negligent, many of the officials are treasonous and they are not protecting our rights. Let’s look at the backdrop of the story. There are two victims. Let’s talk briefly about Colleen Hufford a grandmother of fifty-four. What do you know about her? There are a few things we found out about her that we just want to point out.
This happened in the heartland of America. This lady, this victim of Islam, could be your next door neighbor. This could have happened to your own mother. We need to understand how personal this is. She was just a regular American working her job. She’s a grandmother, fifty-four years of age. If she was like most Americans, she would probably, think what do I need to know about Islam? There are some Muslims around here, we have some Muslims in our workplace, I don’t understand these people and quite frankly, I’m a little afraid of them.
She was just living the American dream. She’s doing her job. She loved her family. Her family has great testimony of the loving relationship she had with them. Later in life she had became a hockey fan. In fact, she actually went to watch a hockey game on Christmas day and she was amazed at how she had become so enamored with the sport. She goes to work, minding her own business, and she becomes the first American to lose her head because of the religion of Islam on American soil. This is in the heartland, Oklahoma.
That’s right, Oklahoma. If you had asked any of those people at that plant what they thought the odds of a jihadist attack, a terrorist attack, in Moore, Oklahoma, they would have said it was very low. Her husband was waiting outside for her? One of the parts of the story that was missing is that apparently this was near the end of the day and her husband usually waits outside to pick her up. The media reports said he was outside the plant and had no idea that this was going on. In just a matter of a few minutes his wife iwas not only dead, but beheaded.
The other part of this story is that, from what we understand, this perpetrator, his given name is Alton Nolen, but he called himself Jah’Keem Yisreal, an Islamic name, because he had converted to Islam. I keep hearing media reports that he supposedly converted to Islam. What do they mean supposedly? Look at his Facebook page. Look at his content. He is clearly claiming that he is a Muslim. He clearly is quoting scripture from the Koran. He is quoting verses from Surah 09:56 and the Hadith.
The media has gone nuts. He was supposedly a Muslim convert he supposedly shouted some Islamic phrases as he was beheading Colleen Hufford. No, every witness said he was shouting Islamic phrases, probably “Allah Akbar” while he was cutting her head off. Traci Johnson, who is the second victim, who was forty-three years old, apparently was intended to be the first victim. As I said earlier, the media said he stabbed her. No, he was cutting her head off when the plant manager got his rifle and shot the guy.
This is not being reported the way it should be because it doesn’t fit the media’s narrative that guns are bad. In this case it saved a life; maybe more.
We may get back to the gun issue maybe later on because I think there are things that need to be said about this. We could have been talking about two fatalities here. Traci Johnson also was within inches of losing her life and losing her head in the name of Allah.
