A revolution of sorts has occurred in a all girls school. In a very near place steeped in barbarianism because what happens on the other side of the world is instantly discovered. So it is in a place called Kandahar, Afghanistan. A city within a nation where the government denies girls an education. Where it is not uncommon to find adult women, who can not read or write. Where the ruling Muslim government (Taliban) has tightened their grip upon educating girls. (source:St. Petersburg Times-Perspective section-18 January 2009)
In this city of Kandahar, some students walk miles from mud brick homes to get to school. One day as fifteen girls were on their way to school. Suddenly appearing were three pairs of men riding motorcycles. They circled the girls spraying acid upon them. One cyclist stopped, with one rider grabbing seventeen year old, Shamsia’s Husseini head scarf and ripping it off. Called a burqa because it wraps around the head covering the face and can drape the entire body. Once the assailant removed her burqa, he sprayed her face with acid. Not content to just spray her face he exerted extra effort to spray her eyelids. Today she and the other terrorized girls are back at school. From the attack Shamsia suffered an unfortunate degree of deformity. She has scars which are jagged with degrees of discoloring on the left side of her face. Her eyelids were severely damaged causing her vision at times to becomes blurry making reading difficult for her. Shamsia said one day after school, “My parents want me to keep coming to school even if I am killed.” Back at the Mirwasis School, a school of about 1300 girls, the headmaster told the parents, “If you do not send your daughters to school, then the enemy wins.” “I told them not to give in to darkness. Education is the way to improve society.”
So how does such an scenario play out in the United States? It plays out in many ways, here is one of them. I became familiar with with a Muslim family who went through a divorce. Though the divorce was given in an American court. The wife a devout Muslim herself, gave into Muslim law. Which provides, for the husband gaining custody of their five children. The Muslim population has grown so large and influential in Great Britain. That they have in some instances persuaded the government to allow them to handle certain non-criminal disputes through their legal system. Arguing that the parties are more likely to comply with decisions handed down by Muslim clerics. Not in the United States, ever!
Islam as a religion, takes societies back to the dark ages. Muslim countries do not have an immigration problem. With populations determined to migrate to say Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iran, Lebanon or any of Africa. It is to Western countries like Great Britain, and the United States they seek residency in. And the West has graciously embraced and welcomed all people to their shores. Many have been grateful, and for hundreds of years, have assimilated themselves into their new homelands. But that is not the case with the Muslim population. They are determined to force assimilation of Islamic law and customs upon the people where they now live.
George Washington, our fist President, put it this way, “The bosom of America is open to receive not only the Opulent, and the respectable Stranger, but the oppressed of all Nations and Religions; whom we shall welcome to participate in all of our rights and privileges, if they by decency and propriety of conduct they appear to merit the enjoyment.”
That last clause is what is haunting America. Especially as it applies to our Muslim community. They come to our shore failing the test. They are not decent by virtue of the following. Their propriety of conduct or ability to conform to prevailing customs and usages is nonexistent. For the most part their propriety is harmful to the future of the nation. By no measure, do they merit the rights and privileges of America.
They are to be pitied because Muslims lack of decency is in their genetic makeup. For we find this recorded in the scriptures, “And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, you are with child, and you shall call his name Ishmael: because the LORD has heard your affliction. And he will be a wild man; his hand shall be against everyman, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren,” Genesis 16:11-12. Not all may be aware of this, but Muslims accepts their ancestry through Ishmael. And their rest our national, and international problem with the Muslim world which is spinning out of control because they genetically predisposed to be a violent, wild and unruly people.
Evil seeps into societies and people through Satan, generally without awareness. Luke 22:3, provides one such instance, “Then entered Satan into Judas, surnamed Iscariot, being one of the twelve. Manifesting itself in a subtle way, “And while he yet spoke, behold, a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him,” verse 47. “And Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the son of man with a kiss?” verse 48.
In this day Satan is seeping into Muslims who become enraged because of what they sense as a world unwilling to submit to Islam. They mingle and associate with the non Muslim world waiting to attack as brutally and repeatedly as necessary to conquer. Wanting nothing more than to betray the son of man. Because it is the Christian community that is commissioned to resist Satan, and fight against satanic influences. And there is no greater satanic foe bringing the sure kiss of death to the West with their deep and rich Christian heritage. And Western governments are helpless for many reasons. But at the top, perhaps are the concepts multiculturalism and political correctness. That has completely silenced President Washington’s advise. The question is can the Church respond to this Islamic threat once again, as it has through out history?
