Hillary, Islam, and Christianity

Hillary Clinton 22

 Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has told us that “Muslims are peaceful and tolerant and have nothing to do with terrorism.”

Let me get the conventional qualifying statements out of the way.

I agree that we shouldn’t wage war on a religion (though she says we’re fighting an ideology, not people), and we should certainly not be unkind to our peaceful Muslim neighbors (the mosque close by my place seems peaceful enough).

However, if we misdiagnose the problem, we’ll come up with the wrong “solutions.”

As I read things, her misguided logic works out like this.

1. If you’re a true Muslim, then you are always peaceful and tolerant.

2. The attackers on 11/13, who claim to be Muslims, were not peaceful or tolerant — they were violent and intolerant (to say the least).

3. Therefore, they were not really Muslim, but falsely claimed to be.

In a possible case of projection, she apparently has in the back of her mind this hidden comparison:

1. If you’re a true Christian, then you’re always peaceful and tolerant.

2. Joe (who usually does not claim Christianity, but let’s say he does) shoots an abortion doctor.

3. Therefore, Joe is not really Christian, but falsely claims to be.

How do we sort out the complications? It’s not as hard as it first appears.

Let’s go back to the sources — which terrorists do, to justify their violence.

Islam’s institutional DNA is built on jihad or qital (only military war, not a “struggle”). For example, in an ironic twist, surah (chapter) 47 can be named either “Muhammad” or “Qital.” In other words, the numerous verses about warfare are clear and numerous. Another example: Muhammad yelled, “Allahu akbar!” when he attacked a (Jewish) city like Khaybar. Why wouldn’t Muslims today follow his example and shout the same thing?

On the other side, there simply are no military war verses in the Christian Scriptures, as if the church as the church should raise an army and force people to submit to Christ by the sword. Though Christians can join the secular military, they act in the name of the Constitution, not Christ.  They should never yell, “I kill in the name of Christ!”

Therefore, when ISIS sets up a caliphate, has imams, institutes shariah courts by which they sentence captives to beheadings (which follows the Quran), and wages perpetual war against the infidel West 9even by downing a Russian passenger jet), ISIS is following the Quran and Muhammad’s example. ISIS sees itself as a legitimate government that is true to original Islam, while other Islamic nations have compromised it. (Incidentally, ISIS sees its caliphate as more legitimate in the eyes of Allah than any government in the West, including the USA’s. President Hollande was perceptive when he declared war on ISIS because they declared war on his country, including aiding and abetting militant hit squads on 11/13. And this is why it is foolish of the president not to seek a war resolution in Congress or of Jen Psaki of the White House to say military might won’t end the war against ISIS. Wrong. It is entirely possible to defeat a government or caliphate holed up in a territory.)

The bottom line: The problem with Islam is that it doesn’t separate mosque from state.

Let’s get back to the silly hidden comparison that Hillary has in mind.

When Joe shoots an abortion doctor and does not let a court decide, but takes the law into his own hands, then he is not following the teachings of the Christian Scriptures, but violates them. According to these Scriptures, the fate of criminals are placed in the hands of the legal system, and those who refuse to convert are never threatened by the sword.

The biblical Scriptures separate the state, which can wield the sword, from the church, which may not institutionally wield the sword.

Mrs. Clinton, following the origins of the two religions enables you to tell the difference between them. Christianity is different in quality and kind.

Obama’s Love for Islam n Jihadis and His Hate for Christians


Obama recently lashed out against the idea of giving preference to Christian refugees, describing it as “shameful.”  “That’s not American.  That’s not who we are.  We don’t have religious tests to our compassion,” loftily added the American president.

Accordingly, the administration is still determined to accept 10,000 more Syrian refugees, almost all of whom will be Muslim, despite the fact that some are ISIS operatives, while many share the ISIS worldview (as explained below).

Yet right as Obama was grandstanding about “who we are,” statistics were released indicating that “the current [refugee] system overwhelmingly favors Muslim refugees. Of the 2,184 Syrian refugees admitted to the United States so far, only 53 are Christians while 2,098 are Muslim.”

Aside from the obvious – or, to use Obama’s own word, “shameful” – pro-Muslim, anti-Christian bias evident in these statistics, there are a number of other troubling factors.

For starters, the overwhelming majority of “refugees” being brought into the United States are not just Muslim, but Sunnis – the one Muslim sect that the Islamic State is not persecuting and displacing.  After all, ISIS – and most Islamic terrorist groups (Boko Haram, al-Qaeda, Al Shabaab, Hamas, et al.) – are all Sunnis.  Even Obama was arguably raised a Sunni.

In this context, how are Sunnis “refugees”?  Whom are they fleeing?  Considering that the Obama administration defines refugees as people “persecuted by their government,” most of those coming into the U.S. either aided or at least sympathized with the jihad against Assad (even if they revealed their true colors only when the time was right).

Simply put, some 98% of all refugees belong to the same Islamic sect as ISIS does.  And many of them, unsurprisingly, share the same vision – such as the “refugees” who recently murdered some 120 people in France, or the “refugees” who persecute Christian minorities in European camps and settlements.  (Al Azhar – the Sunni world’s most prestigious university of Islamic law, which co-hosted U.S. President Obama’s 2009 “A New Beginning” speech – was just recently exposed as teaching and legitimizing all the atrocities that ISIS commits.)

As for those who are being raped, slaughtered, and enslaved based on their non-Sunni religious identity – not by Assad, but by so-called “rebel” forces (aka jihadis) – many of them are being denied refuge in America.

Thus, although Christians were approximately 10 percent of Syria’s population in 2011, only one percent has been granted refuge in America.  This despite the fact that, from a strictly humanitarian point of view – and humanitarianism (Obama’s “compassion”) is the chief reason being cited in accepting refugees – Christians should receive priority simply because they are the most persecuted group in the Middle East.

At the hands of the Islamic State, which supposedly precipitated the migrant crisis, Christians have been repeatedly forced to renounce Christ or die; they have been enslaved and raped; and they have had more than 400 of their churches desecrated and destroyed.1

ISIS has committed no such atrocities against fellow Sunnis, they who are being accepted into the U.S. in droves.  Nor does Assad enslave, behead, or crucify people based on their religious identity (despite Jeb Bush’s recent, and absurd, assertions).

Obama should further prioritize Christian refugees simply because his own policies in the Middle East have directly exacerbated their plight.  Christians and other religions minorities did not flee from Bashar Assad’s Syria, Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, or Moammar Gaddafi’s Libya.  Their systematic persecution began only after the U.S. interfered in those nations in the name of “democracy,” succeeding only in uncorking the jihadi terrorists whom the dictators had long kept suppressed.

Incidentally, prioritizing Christian refugees would not merely be an altruistic gesture or the U.S. government’s way of righting its wrongs: rather, it brings many benefits to America’s security.  (Unlike Muslims or even Yazidis, Christians are easily assimilated into Western nations due to the shared Christian heritage, and they bring trustworthy language and cultural skills that are beneficial to the “war on terror.”)

Finally, no one should be shocked by these recent revelations of the Obama administration’s pro-Muslim and anti-Christian policies.  They fit a clear and established pattern of religious bias within his administration.  For example:

Most recently, as the White House works on releasing a statement accusing ISIS of committing genocide against religious minorities such as Yazidis – who are named and recognized in the statement – Obama officials are arguing that Christians “do not appear to meet the high bar set out in the genocide treaty” and thus likely will not be mentioned.

In short, and to use the president’s own words, it is the Obama administration’s own foreign and domestic policies that are “shameful,” that are “not American,” and that do not represent “who we are.”

Yet the question remains: will Americans take notice and do anything about their leader’s policies – which welcome Islamic jihadis while ignoring their victims – or will their indifference continue until they too become victims of the jihad, in a repeat of Paris or worse?

1 Even before the new “caliphate” was established, Christians were and continue to be targeted by Muslims – Muslim mobs, Muslim individuals, Muslim regimes, and Muslim terrorists, from Muslim countries of all races (Arab, African, Asian, etc.) – and for the same reason: Christians are infidel number one.  See Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians for hundreds of anecdotes before the rise of ISIS as well as the Muslim doctrines that create such hate and contempt for Christians who are especially deserving of refugee status.

#Greece Warning: It’s ‘Nearly impossible’ to find Islamic jihadists among refugee’s

Lesbos (Greece) (AFP) – As the hunt for jihadists widens after last week’s Paris attacks, authorities in Greece warn it was virtually impossible to pick out dangerous extremists among arriving migrants, without prior intelligence.

“If they are not already registered in the database, it’s nearly impossible,” says Dimitris Amountzias, police captain in charge of Moria, Greece’s main registration camp on the island of Lesbos.

At the camp, dozens of migrants and refugees queue to give their fingerprints, have a photo taken and be quizzed by agents from European border agency Frontex.

It’s a seemingly detailed security check, but jihadists have already proven they can bypass it with ease.

The suspected architect of the Paris attacks that killed 130 people, 28-year-old Abdelhamid Abaaoud, escaped from Europe to Syria and returned without being detected.

French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve this week suggested Abaaoud, who was killed in a police raid in Paris on Wednesday, had passed through Greece.

Athens denied this on Friday. “Until today, no source has provided any evidence to confirm this claim,” the Greek citizen’s protection ministry said in a statement.

Greek police were looking for Abaaoud in Athens in January, after a Belgian police raid in the eastern town of Verviers broke up a cell planning attacks.

At the time, a cellphone was found to have made calls to the Verviers group from Greece.

Greece extradited to Belgium a 33-year-old Algerian man arrested in a raid in the Athens district of Pangrati, but Abaaoud was never found.

“The unchecked flow poses an unequalled challenge for European security,” said a European security expert speaking on condition of anonymity.

– ‘We don’t really know’ –

Still, it was thanks to Greece’s fingerprints database — and a passport found near the scene of the attack — that French and Greek authorities were able to determine that one of the men who blew himself up outside the Stade de France on November 13 had registered himself as Syrian refugee Ahmad al-Mohammad on the island of Leros on October 3.

On Friday, French prosecutor Francois Molins said a second Stade de France bomber had passed through Greece posing as a migrant.

The Greek police did not immediately react to the announcement.

Amountzias insists his officers are doing their best under the current guidelines.

“There isn’t a single officer here who would let a migrant through without first taking their fingerprints,” he insists.

Junior interior minister Nikos Toskas took a similar stance on Friday during an emergency ministerial meeting in Brussels.

“External borders are checked… the refugees are checked and identified under European rules,” Toskas said.

One fail-safe is that migrants cannot buy ferry tickets off the island without undergoing police registration, Amountzias said.

But those looking to give the police the slip can also obtain fake Greek documents, with criminal syndicates doing a brisk business in supplying migrants with fake papers and police registration documents.

A gang of suspected forgers, most of them Pakistanis, were arrested on Lesbos on Wednesday.

“We don’t really know who is coming through,” admits another police officer, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Even if Syrians generally carry passports it’s not always possible to match the document to its bearer, and people of other nationalities “are registered on the basis of who they claim to be,” the officer adds.

– ‘Greeks’ in South America –

Syrians with falsified Greek passports have even ended up in South America.

Five Syrian men were caught in Honduras this week, while a woman was arrested in Costa Rica with a suspicious Greek passport.

Ideally, Europe should coordinate its crime suspect database, says Amontzias, because without prior knowledge, officials spend time chasing down false leads.

France has asked the European Union to ensure better information-sharing among intelligence agencies.

“Contrary to what is thought, it is quite easy to enter and exit the European Union without being caught,” says French criminologist Christophe Naudin.

On the island of Kos this week, two Syrians were held for two days after photos of Islamic State flags were found on their cellphones.

On Lesbos, another man was taken aside for wearing a T-shirt that read: “Don’t panic, I’m Muslim”.

Greece’s junior interior minister for migration Yiannis Mouzalas last week insisted heightened security concerns should not jeopardise the rights of refugees to safety in Europe.

“There could be more (jihadists)… are we supposed to toss 100,000 people in the sea?” he asked.

More than 650,000 migrants and refugees have reached the Greek islands so far in 2015 using the eastern Mediterranean route from Turkey, the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) said earlier this month.

Of those, over 500 have died, including many children.
