Missing in Orlando

by Bill Lockwood

Liberalism is a brain disease which rewires one’s cognitive functions and reasoning capabilities. Under its umbrella philosophies such as Marxism, Communism, Nazism, and Progressivism flourish. This is startlingly apparent in the aftermath of Orlando which emboldens Presidents and other leftists to leave out the most crucial pieces of the puzzle in analyzing and explaining the terror. Sadly, many on the right are afflicted with the same brain disease as well. What are the most critical puzzle pieces missing which we as a culture have declared off-limits for consideration?

First, refusing to look at the SOURCE material of Islam. It is beyond belief that Americans would continue to be patient with President Obama as he scurries to console—not American citizens who have been targeted for jihad—but members of Omar Mateen’s religious group, Muslims. Obama reassures them that no one is ready to judge them for Mateen’s murders. He must comfort Islam that all is well. By so doing he is warning Americans not to entertain any views that may reflect poorly on Islam.

Quick to take the cue, even conservative pundits rush to judge skeptical Americans who are dubious about Islam itself. “Moderate Muslims” must be our partners, say they. Our first duty seems to be to protect Muslims and their feelings of inclusion into America. The gigantic assumption here is that if the Orlando carnage is Islam, it is only some “radicalized” version of it and not representative of real peaceful Islam. Brain dead liberals expect Americans who can read to be brain dead as well. The real questions are: What did Muhammed himself DO? What did Muhammed himself TEACH in the Koran? In the Hadith? This leads us to the Fountainhead of Islamic teaching: The Koran and The Sura (life of Muhammed).

The prophet of Islam, Muhammed, butchered many more than Omar Mateen shot. He personally oversaw the beheading of thousands. Islam conquered the entire peninsula of Arabia in his lifetime, not because of defensive wars but because of offensive bloody strategems including butchering, raping, pillaging, and instilling fear into surrounding countries. His followers hacked their way across most of Asia and into Europe during the ages succeeding, following Muhammed’s example.

Not only did Muhammed practice what Mateen carried out, but he ordered his followers to do it as well. The last Surah that came from his uninspired lips included this: “Fight and slay pagans wherever you may find them” (Surah 9:5). Another commands Muslims to “behead” their enemies (47:4). Muhammed himself taught and practiced what is styled “radical Islam.” Why do modern-day know-it-all’s in the press continue to discuss Islam with little or no reference to the source of it all—Muhammed?

Another second puzzle piece conspicuously missing from analyzation is this: Leaving unexplained how a Muslim can be “radicalized.” This is all we hear. Mateen became “radicalized;” let’s continue to allow Muslims to come into our country but hope they do not become “radicalized;” we need to watch for “radicalization;” and on and on. Not a single one of these pundits or politicians tell us: Just how is a Muslim radicalized? How specifically doe that occur? Is it by laying aside the Koran and doing something different than what is read? Or, is it by digging deeper and deeper into the Koran and the Sura to imitate the prophet of Islam himself? What exactly is radicalization?

Only one answer is available. By becoming more and more aligned with the heart of the Koran one is radicalized.  If not, let President Obama or Hillary Clinton lay out in detail the process of “radicalization” and explain to America just how this happens. But that is something the left will never do. Instead, they will parade before us such horrendous explanations as that Orlando is the result of “too ready access to guns;” or that it is the result of “one person believing he is right and all else are wrong;” or, “Orlando’s occur” when people are “mentally disturbed.”

Missing in the Orlando analyzation: common sense. And common sense is the refusal to begin with the premise that Omar Mateen could not possibly represent what Islam actually teaches.

Do Muslims and Christians Worship the Same God? 0 (0)

Do Muslims and Christians Worship the Same God?

by Bill Lockwood

It is surprising to see the number of Christian people who, apparently from lack of informative study, would suggest that the “God” of the Bible and the “God” of Islam are one and the same. One of the basic concepts of biblical Christianity is “The Father, Son and Holy Spirit” (Matt. 28:18-20) (The Trinity) which Islam refers to as blasphemy. That Jesus Christ is Deity (Col. 2:9) and equal to the personage of the Father (John 10:30) and worthy of our worship is also a core Christian concept. But this too Islam declares to be rank blasphemy. But these comparisons only touch the hem of the garment regarding the differences.

The chief attribute of God is “love” (1 John 4:8). But this characteristic is completely lacking in the Islamic description of God. Again, the capricious nature of Allah is set forth in the Koran compared to the one true God who “cannot lie” (Tit. 1:2). “But of a God of infinite Holiness and of infinite Love, Muhammad had no idea whatever” writes Islamic scholar William Tisdall (Religion of the Crescent). Can it be that Allah and God are one and the same?

Character of God

From the fact that “God is Love” flows also the fact that God is our Father and man has been created “in His image” (Gen. 1:27). But in the ninety-nine Titles or “Names of God” repeated by Muslims the name of Father is not one of them. “Not only so, but the very application of this term to God in any sense seems to the Muhammadan mind to be the most utter blasphemy.” Instead, Muhammad’s conception of God was altogether a Deistic one. Being created “in the image of God” man has an affinity with and to God. But there is not the slightest approach to any kinship between man and God in Islamic theology. No sympathy with man and no possibility of it.

Paganistic Concept of God

It is so well documented that in “Pre-Islamic” Arabia “Allah” was regarded as a pagan name for a peculiar pagan Arabian deity that to note all references would be a large task. But they include Encyclopedia Brittanica, I:643; Encyclopedia of Islam, ed. Houtsma, I:302; Encyclopedia of Islam, ed. Gibb, I:406; Encyclopedia of Islam, ed. Lewis, III:1093. “Allah is a pre-Islamic name … corresponding to the Babylonian Bel” (Encyclopedia of Religion, eds. Meagre, O’Brien, Aherne, 1979, I:117).

According to Middle East scholar E.M. Wherry, whose translation of the Koran is still used today, in pre-Islamic times Allah-worship, like the worship of Baal, was an astral religion in that it involved the worship of the sun, the moon, and the stars. Witness the Islamic crescent-moon symbol. Alfred Guilluame, another Arabian scholar, explains that in Arabia the sun god was viewed as a female goddess and the moon as the male god and one of the names by which he was known was “Allah” (Islam, 7). This moon god was married to the sun god by which three daughters were produced—Al-Lat, Al-Uzza, and Manat. These too were viewed as on top of the pantheon of Arabian deities. Could it possibly be that Christians who worship the God of the Bible and Muslims who worship Allah honor the same deity?

For those who are in doubt regarding this, examine Surah 53 of the Koran where the original text reads of three daughters of Allah: “These are exalted females, and verily their intercession is to be hoped for.” These, of course, are the much-discussed “Satanic verses.” Impeccable Muslim sources (al-Tabari; Waqidi) verify the original reading. Later, Muhammed changed the verses and declared that “Satan” had put the original ones in his mouth.

It is sad that Christians are the only ones who insist upon being ill-informed on this subject. “…though the liberal Muslim may admit that Christians or Jews call upon Allah, he could never speak of the Allah of the Christians or Allah of the Jews” (Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics, ed. Hastings). The spirit of compromise unfortunately is alive in the Christian world.

Hillary Criticizes Trump on Islam 0 (0)

Hillary Criticizes Trump on Islam

by Bill Lockwood

After speaking for a few moments in New Hampshire Town Hall rally Donald Trump opened up the floor to questions. The first citizen to speak remarked, “We have a problem in this country, and it’s called Muslims. We know our current president is one. You know he’s not even an American, birth certificate man!” Trump jokingly responded, “This is the first question?”

Then the questioner added, “But anyway, we have training camps growing where they want to kill us. That’s my question. When can we get rid of them?” At this, Trump answered, “We are going to be looking at a lot of different things. And, you know, people are saying that. And a lot of people are saying that bad things are happening out there. We are going to be looking at that and plenty of other things.”

Hillary Clinton weighed in on the discussion via Twitter on Friday. She noted that this exchange was “just plain wrong” while heavily criticizing Trump for not denouncing the man for such a question. To the liberal elite, such thoughts are completely out of bounds.


Perhaps Trump did not follow Hillary’s game-plan because, unlike the Democrat front-runner, he has actually read the Koran. If he has not, it is apparent that the New Hampshire citizen who asked the question is perfectly familiar with it enough to call Muslims a “problem.”

According to the late Ayatollah Khomeini, there are over one hundred verses in the Koran exhorting believers to wage jihad against unbelievers. Blood vengeance and war are central to Islam itself. Quran 9:73: “O Prophet! Strive hard against the unbelievers and hypocrites, and be firm against them. Their abode is Hell, an evil refuge indeed.” “Strive hard” is Arabic word “Jahidi,” a verbal form of “jihad.” Again: “When you meet the unbelievers in the battlefield, strike off their heads and, when you have laid them low, bind your captives firmly” (47:4).

Is this a tiny element of their religion? Absolutely not. It is central to it. Muhammed repeatedly insisted that there was nothing better than to engage in jihad. He even warned Muslims that if they did not engage in jihad, they would be punished. “Muhammad was firm about the necessity of jihad not only for himself personally, but for every Muslim. He warned believers that ‘he who does not join the warlike expedition (jihad), or equip, or looks well after a warriors’ family when he is away, will be smitten by Allah with a sudden calamity” (Abu-Dawud as Sijistani, translator Kitab Bhavan, 1990, book 14, no. 2497).

Islamic History

Perhaps Trump has seen the global war Islam wages and can draw simple deductions to which globe-trotting Clinton has willfully blinded her eyes. Men, women and children are right now being abducted, tortured, raped and forced to convert to Islam or be enslaved, just as Muhammad himself practiced.
In Egypt alone there have been over 500 cases documented within the past several years. Identical reports come out of Pakistan on a regular basis. Churches are routinely shut down or destroyed in Indonesia, India, Lebanon, Kenya, Kuwait, Turkey, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Syria, and other nations. Christian preachers are jailed as a matter of Islamic policy in these nations.

Perhaps Trump, unlike Clinton, is at least vaguely familiar with World History which demonstrates that the Islamic Empire practically conquered the world following the life of Muhammad by hacking their way across Europe with a sword. Perhaps Trump is interested in America and Americans’ concerns instead of bowing down to do obeisance before the idol of political correctness. No wonder Hillary is confused.
