Read this book!

I wish everyone in the West would read Brigitte Gabriel’s Because They Hate: A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America. It is not a pleasant read; at points I was nauseated at the clear depiction of evil. But it is a compelling and necessary read.

The book forms two sections. First, Gabriel recounts the fall of her native land to Islamic conquest, then she discovers that the same terrorism she experienced as a child has now followed her to her adopted land, and she tells us how to recognize and counter its stealth maneuverings.

Gabriel grew up in Lebanon, just as it suffered an Islamic takeover. Lebanon was a cosmopolitan paradise, with a stable government apportioned among three main population groups. But tensions mounted as Muslim political power grew due to their high birth rate. Then the 1979 Islamic revolution in Iran radicalized the world’s Muslim population. Finally, the welcoming of Arafat’s lawless PLO into Lebanon was like a match struck to tinder, setting off a civil war.

Gabriel recalls how Muslims began a reign of terror. Road blocks would set up, and those with “Christian” marked on their ID card would be machine-gunned. Christians finding loved ones’ bodies in alleys, beheaded or with their throats slit, became a daily occurrence. Mere killing was seldom enough; brutality was celebrated. There was one instance where a Christian mother was physically forced by her own hand to slit her son’s throat, and then to watch as her two daughters were raped. Thus thousands were slaughtered as Muslims claimed the land for their god, and many more thousands fled the nation. Yet the West was oblivious toward the hideous modern-day genocide.

Though a Maronite Christian, Gabriel still was an Arab raised in Arab culture, and as such she was taught to hate Jews. But her understanding of life and culture suddenly turned around when of necessity she accompanied her injured mother to an Israeli hospital. There she was astonished to find that Jews, far from being apes and pigs as she was taught, were an advanced, open-hearted people who gave precious medical care even to enemies that were implacably trying to destroy them. As she contrasted this magnanimity to the irrational hatred of the very Palestinians that the Jews were treating, she clearly saw the nature of the veil of evil for the first time in her life, and she realized that she had been raised in a culture of lies.

Islam’s true nature: making sense of the Koran

Give this article a quick read: It very neatly puts the nature Islam in perspective.

Understanding Islam is very simple when you put the Koran in chronological order. The Koran, which was written by one man, and which blatantly contradicts itself, theologically mirrors Muhammad’s changing circumstances. When he was in the minority, his revelations were peaceful, winsome. After the flight to Medina, however, they began to turn aggressive and finally violent. It was at this time that Muhammad and his followers began raiding caravans – killing, raping and plundering. Later would come full-fledged blood persecution of the “infidels”.

Several years ago, when America chose a president who promised to fix the economy, but who was of low morals and ethics and who supported unrestricted legal abortion, Ralph Martin admonished the U.S. with the Bible proverb, “Do not accept a bribe for the perversion of justice”. Violating that principle will bring a curse whether the violator is an individual or a nation. And that is exactly what we have done to ourselves. Looking around at our society and culture, is it not obvious? Read more…
