Hillary Clinton & Islamo-fascism

Hillary Clinton & Islamo-fascism-“A complete whitewashing propaganda campaign in behalf of Islam is now being waged throughout our educational system…”

by Bill Lockwood

Hillary Clinton and her campaign scurries to welcome Muslims and to ensure they have a place in America. Witness her answers in the recent presidential debate. However, the recent email dump from WikiLeaks demonstrates that her staff, and presumably she herself, do not feel the same way about Christianity. What is most frightening about this, however, is the apparent lack of moral clarity and courage by average Americans to make distinctions between Islam and Christianity.

Pounded continually by a complicit media, citizens can scarcely see that Christianity of the Bible is a religion of peace with man and God (Christ is the Prince of Peace) while Islam of the Koran is primarily a totalitarian system of government control akin to communism (Muhammad was a violent War-Lord). There is very little religion within Islam.

To Christianity we owe the sacred concepts of the value of life, liberty and the validation of owning private property. Islam knows nothing of these. Unless citizens can begin thinking clearly about these concepts we can expect a continued dramatic uptick by Islamo-fascists in America led by Clinton-Obama forces.

Raymond Ibrahim of Hudson New York wrote in 2011, Muslim violence against the Christian world is “on its way to reaching epidemic proportions.” It continues unabated.  Inspired by Sharia Law, as well as bold passages in the Quran itself which call for bloody violence against non-Muslims, Islamicists worldwide have intensified their jihad and communist aggression.

One of the most obvious causes of this upsurge is the fact that America elected a President who declares personal solidarity with Islam—even referring to himself as a “Muslim” in aired video clips. Obama then boldly lied when he informed America that he was a “Christian” and the liberal media establishment has been complicit to deceive John Q. Public.  If Hillary becomes president, the aggressiveness of Muslims world-wide will continue.

Around the Globe

Efforts by the Obama administration to placate Islam have merely intensified conflicts. As David Kupelian puts it, we are literally “feeding” jihad and “nurturing it.” Reports from Pakistan, for example, include school textbooks denigrating Christianity while lauding Islam. Sounds like the Clinton campaign have been studying Pakistani texts!

The result: increasing intolerance of Christianity as well as other non-Muslim religions. Christians are regularly portrayed in Pakistan as second-class citizens who are enemies of Islam. Consequently,  beatings of pregnant Christian women have been inflicted by Pakistani Muslim police who threaten to kill their unborn fetuses. In Egypt, dozens of Christians were killed several Octobers ago during what has been called the “Maspero Massacre.” Literally hundreds of Christians came under attack in Maspero by Muslim mobs throwing bottles and stones and several were murdered.  One senior leader of the Islamic Salafi party blamed Christians themselves for their deaths at the hands of Muslim thugs, declaring it was “Allah’s curse on them.”

Islamic militants in Nigeria are routinely attacking churches and police stations. Ibrahim reports that the attacks include opening fire on congregations of ‘mostly women and children,’ killing dozens. This follows massive violence that erupted after a Christian, President Jonathan, defeated his Muslim rival in elections. Identical events are occurring daily across the globe: Indonesia, Iran, Turkey, Afghanistan, Kashmir, Kenya, and the list goes on.

America

While a common-sense American would be glancing around the globe with alarm wondering how our culture might resist the onslaught of violent Islamic teaching and practice– what instead do we find? Hillary Clinton’s staff loathing Christianity while she schmoozes Islam.

Added to that are the relentless attacks against Donald Trump for his common sense proposal of suspending immigration from Islamic nations until we find out what is occurring. But that is exactly what our cultural leaders do not want to occur, even though “what is going on” is that Islam is setting about to conquer nations through jihad as was practiced by their founder, Muhammad. Too many spineless citizens have not enough courage to look beneath veneer of misinformation published by the major media.

A complete whitewashing propaganda campaign in behalf of Islam is now being waged throughout our educational system with very little opposition from right-minded patriots.  Indoctrination includes California school children ordered to pretend that they are Muslims on a pilgrimage to Mecca and learning to shout “Allah Akbar” in imitation of murderers such as the Ft. Hood terrorist.

Some textbooks now used in our public schools actually declare that polygamous marriages are better than monogamous marriages; others teach that Islam is a religion of “tolerance and peace”; still others praise the implementation of Sharia law while upholding the murderous Muhammad as one who simply “defended himself.”

Added to these fabulous lies and distortions we now have various courts which unlawfully utilize aspects of Sharia to adjudicate civil cases.  The bottom line is that the American public is being carefully and systematically indoctrinated in favor of radical Islam.

President Obama had been quickly transforming our society into a socialistic morass that resembles more Mussolini’s fascist state than the republican ideal he has sworn to uphold. Hillary Clinton promises to continue that legacy. With the onslaught of Islam its color is might just as quickly become Islamo-fascism.

If Sharia Law and its denigration of women begins to be implemented in America, as Islam promises it will, Donald Trumps’ ugly talk about women will seem a small matter.

Tribunal in Dallas & First Corinthians

Tribunal in Dallas & First Corinthians

by Bill Lockwood

The distinction that Texas is the first state in the Union to have an Islamic Tribunal is not something for which we should be proud. Actually, a Sharia Court pre-dated the current one in Richardson, but the onus is still on Texas. One of the “judges,” Dr. Taher El-badawi, says that participation is only voluntary. Nevertheless, the new Sharia Tribunal is operating in Irving, which ought to be of no little concern to all Americans because there is no school of Islamic jurisprudence among either Sunnis or Shi’ites that does not mandate stoning for adultery or the subjugation of women.

Even more disconcerting is the reaction of liberals to this court as well as the complete misuse of Bible passages to support it. When measures were introduced into the Texas House several years ago to forbid Sharia Courts in Texas, liberal bloggers went wild accusing conservatives of seeing ghosts that weren’t there. Now that the Sharia Court is operating, liberals chirp, ‘Well, at least they are not cutting off hands,” blah blah blah. But it is Rodger Jones of the Dallas Morning News (2-3-15) who writes in defense of the Islamic Court, “Don’t mainstream Jewish and Christian congregations offer those kinds of services? Consider, too, that the New Testament includes an injunction against taking a Christian brother to court. The church is a better place to solve disputes, according to some interpretations. From 1 Corinthians 6:1-8 (pretty snappy for a Catholic guy, eh?).”

The snappy Catholic guy demonstrates a woeful lack of knowledge of not only the Bible, but also of Islamic law.
Context of 1 Corinthians 6: Paul addresses the church at Corinth regarding a number of problematic areas, including sin in the church (chap. 5) which the community of faith was to judge (5:13). This judgment was to expel the wicked man—not physically, but that he was to be considered outside of the realm of the faithful. Withdrawal of fellowship—yet “count him not as an enemy but admonish him as a brother” (2 Thess. 3:15) is the disposition of Christians toward an offending member.

The entire paragraph of 6:1-11 turns to a kind of “judgment” that was to occur within the church, namely matters of everyday life where one member has a grievance against another. But instead of settling disputes within the church Christian was litigating Christian before tribunals of the unbelieving at Corinth (v. 2) and soiling the church’s name. Paul is filled with indignation and alternates between statements of horror (v. 1, 6), rhetorical questions (v. 2-4, 5b) and sarcasm (v. 5). He warns that their misconduct would forfeit their inheritance of the kingdom of God (v. 9-11). What can we conclude?

Confusion with Sharia Law

First, Sharia is a Codified System of Jurisprudence Taken from the Koran and Sunna. The Sunna includes the biography of Muhammad plus the Hadiths (what Muhammad said). Sharia is nothing more than a condensation and extrapolation of these two Islamic texts. Sharia covers everything, from how Muhammad cleaned his teeth, which shoe he first put on, or what were his toilet habits. These are patterns for Muslims to follow including specified punishments for failure in any particular. It includes such wide topics as political control of non-Muslims, prayer, jihad, punishments, land use, etc.

What has this to do with 1 Corinthians 6? The inspired apostle certainly never did set forward an Alternate System of Jurisprudence or Specified Legal Code determining how cases were to be judged and what penalties were to be enacted.  Instead, he admonished, have a brother assist in settling the dispute before it goes to public trial. To suggest a comparison between the inspired text of the Bible and Islamic law is a case of gross and willful ignorance.

Second, Paul encourages a completely different attitude than being “litigious.”  “Why not rather take wrong?” “Why not rather be defrauded?” To “defraud” specifically has reference to property loss (cf. James 5:4). The primary point: Guard the reputation of the church! Quit airing dirty laundry before the community! What comparison is there here with a Sharia Court? Paul nowhere advocates an official “tribunal” with an alternate system of laws that come into conflict with legal jurisprudence of the nation. He is advocating settling disputes by brotherly agreements within the church. For the “snappy Catholic guy” to use this text to somehow equate to an official Islamic legal system that supplants the American legal system, complete with civic and criminal courts called Sharia is not snappy at all. It is an abuse.

Third, the only penalty enacted by the Corinthian texts, and any NT  text, is simple expulsion from the community of faith. Withdrawing fellowship (2 Thess. 3) is how it is worded elsewhere, including “to have no company with” (3:14). This is a recognition that the offender is not living as the New Testament teaches. Yet, even those “put away” from the church are to be loved and admonished as brethren (v.15). What in the world has this to do with “legal physical punishments” enacted by Sharia Courts around the world which includes beating a rebellious wife because “men are superior to women” (Koran 4:34); female genitalia mutilation (Bukhari 7,72,779); stoning and honor killing?

Even the Dallas Court already uses Islamic denigration of women, for according to El-badawi, “The husband can request a divorce directly from the tribunal” BUT the “wife must go to an Imam who will request a divorce for her.” She herself cannot even apply in the Court! What has this to do with the New Testament? Nothing at all.  Hatred of the Bible apparently drives the liberal media. How else can one explain a Rodger Jones’ efforts to equate the brutality of Islam with the message of Jesus Christ?
