These days Islamic terrorists make regular threats that they are planning attacks on American soil. Recent tweets from قهر الطواغيت @Sunna_rev contain messages like this one: “We are in your state. We are in your cities. We are in your streets…”
Last night President Obama gave his strongest anti-terror speech to date. But his toughest fell far short of what was needed. It remains clear that under his leadership the US is not going to take the measures necessary to remove the threat of Muslim terrorism. All honest Americans know it!
Today marks the thirteenth anniversary of 911. I started the day by watching a Fox and Friends fifteen minute segment, which condensed the history of that terrible morning. Later, searching the internet, I found other accounts of the effects of those horrible hours, caused by Islamic hatred. All are mind-numbing and heart-wrenching to relive. The nearly 3000 who died that sunny September morning were taken by surprise. Some died upon an airplane’s impact, most died in the collapse of a building, but a few chose to leap, escaping flames, taking the ten second flight to their own violent deaths.
It’s 6PM now, and I’m preparing to cook dinner for my family. I’ve heard no reports of new attacks across the globe. But I’m not the least bit comforted. Islam is pervasive, and despite its past and present shameful acts, it seems to be growing in popularity! Since Cassius Clay converted in the sixties, it’s been a trend that continues. As more young people worldwide decide that they are disenfranchised and unsatisfied, they will be preyed upon by Islam, and its hatred for all “others.”
Hatred of this sort is simple, and complicated. Simple, in that it’s a basic violation of God’s Law. No excuses are accepted for those whose goal is to steal and kill. Complicated, in that the roots of hatred are insidious. When racial injustice is feigned and exaggerated, when “income inequality” makes hard work an offense, when religious intolerance is minimized, then we have chosen dissatisfaction, fed it to our children, and opened the door for the weak in society to “convert!”
“So put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander. Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation— if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good.” (I Peter 2:1-3/ESV)
