Christian Apologetics toward Islam and Missions to Muslims

A World In Turmoil


chaosToday I want to cover a number of things, but I want to start with something that comes from The Religion of Peace website. They have been keeping tabs on the Islamic terrorist attacks. They have a table with a running total of all of the terror attacks in 2016 from all around the world. There are 50 countries where there have been Islamic terrorist attacks. It includes attacks where one person was killed and where many were killed. In these 50 countries there were 1,274 Islamic attacks in which 11,774, almost 12,000 people, have been killed. Another 14,303 people have been injured.

This includes the incident in Nice, France where 84 were killed, and over 300 injured. I shared with you how this attack followed the strategy laid out in Al Qaeda’s online magazine of October 11, 2010.

Here are portions of the article:

“America is a terrorist state and Americans are complacent in some of the worst forms of terrorism our Muslim nation has been subjected to. Millions of Muslim lives have been lost to American brutality. It is about time Muslims wake up and payback America what is due to it.

“The idea is to use a pickup truck as a mowing machine, not to mow grass but mow down the enemies of Allah. You would need a 4WD pickup truck. The stronger the better. You would then need to weld on steel blades on the front end of the truck. ……

“Pick your location and timing carefully. Go for the most crow[d]ed locations. Narrower spots are also better because it gives less chance for the people to run away. Avoid locations where other vehicles may intercept you.

“To achieve maximum carnage, you need to pick up as much speed as you can while still retaining good control of your vehicle in order to maximize your inertia and be able to strike as many people as possible in your first run. Keep in mind that as soon as people realize what you are up to, they would scatter and run in every direction looking for cover.

…. The ideal location is a place where there are a maximum number of pedestrians and the least number of vehicles. In fact if you can get through to ‘pedestrian only’ locations that exist in some downtown (city center) areas, that would be fabulous.

…. If you have access to firearms, carry them with you so that you may use them to finish off your work if your vehicle gets grounded during the attack.

The whole goal of these terrorist attacks is not just to kill, but to be killed themselves. They want to gain their reward in Heaven by dying as a martyr in the name of Allah. They don’t have an exit plan where they can escape and live another day. This is part of the doctrine of Islam. We have shared many times the 7 blessings of the martyr on this website. The two most important blessings are the promise of 72 virgins they can ravage throughout eternity, and the right to plead for 70 of their relatives. They believe that they are not only gaining salvation for themselves, they believe they are gaining salvation for 70 friends and family members.

A friend of mine sent me a link that is very interesting. The leaders in Egypt have ordered every imam to deliver identical weekly sermons that have been approved by the government. This is an effort to curb extremism in their country. Can you imagine what would happen if all of the pulpits in America were forced to preach identical, government approved sermons? Aren’t you glad we still live in a country where we have freedom of speech and freedom of religion?

In many of the Islamic nations the press is controlled by the state. Now Egypt has gone further to keep the imams from preaching certain things.

Baton Rouge

I want to take a look at what we know about the shooter in Baton Rouge. His name is Gavin Eugene Long. He was an activist out of Kansas City. There are videos of him promoting Black Liberation Ideology. This is exactly what we talked about in last Saturday’s broadcast and newsletter. We talked about Louis Farrakhan and his race bating. Last year Farrakhan was at a so-called Baptist church in Miami and said:

“I’m looking for 10,000 in the midst of a million. Too thousand fearless men who say death is sweeter than continued life under tyranny. Death is sweeter than continuing to live and bury our children while the white folks give our killers hamburgers. Death is sweeter than watching us slaughter each other to the joy of a 400 year old enemy. Death is sweeter. the Qur’an teaches persecution is worse than slaughter. Then it says retaliation is prescribed in matters of the slain. Retaliation is a prescription from God to calm the breasts of those whose children have been slain. So if the federal government won’t intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us; stalk them and kill them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling!”

He is talking about killing police officers. He wants 10,000 black men to rise up and kill white cops. Why isn’t he being prosecuted for inciting violence, especially in the light of what has happened in Dallas and Baton Rouge?

The Baton Rouge shooter is tied to the Nation of Islam. In his videos he praised groups like the Black Panthers and the Nation of Islam. Let me warn you, there is bad language in these videos.

The Coup In Turkey

Over the weekend there was an attempted coup d’etat in Turkey. It tried to remove Erdagon, the President of Turkey. Erdagon is becoming more and more of a fundamentalist Muslim, and is leading the country in that direction.

Since 1914, the end of WWI, Turkey has embraced modernism, secularism, and been the seat of reformed Islam. This means that Turkey has been a moderate Muslim country for a century. Turkey has become the gateway from the Middle East into Europe. Turkey is not only a member of NATO, it is a provisional member of the European Union. Erdagon has been moving Turkey more toward fundamentalist Islam, like what we see in countries like Syria,  Arabia, and Iran.

Who are those who are trying to overthrow Erdagon? It would be the moderates who are trying to gain control of Turkey and stop the movement toward fundamentalist Islam.

There is an interesting article on the Guardian website suggesting that the whole coup may have been staged by the Erdagon regime. If this is true, it would have been done to allow him to destroy his political enemies.

One of the people he is after is Fethullah Gülen, who lives here in America. He is here for protection from Erdagon. Our air base in Turkey is being restricted until the US agrees to extradite Gülen to Turkey. He is trying to tell us that Gülen is behind the coup. Our State Department is demanding proof before considering his extradition.

There are some very interesting things happening in our world today. We will keep an eye on them and keep you informed.
