Facts or Dreams?

A while ago, I came across something I feel I need to share with you, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

What is it regarding?

It's regarding an article written by Andrew C. McCarthy, and posted in February 2016.  What is the article about?

Here is a link to the article that is entitled, Islam - Facts or Dreams?:  https://imprimis.hillsdale.edu/islam-facts-or-dreams/.  Please... click on the link and read the article.  If you do, I believe you will be honestly educated, regarding Islam.

Here is some information stated in the article (I copied/pasted):

When he said Allah enjoined all Muslims to wage jihad until Islamic law was established throughout the world, the scriptures backed him up.

When he said Islam directed Muslims not to take Jews and Christians as their friends, the scriptures backed him up.

Here's more that was stated (I copied/pasted):

Another point, obvious but inconvenient, is that Islam is not a religion of peace. There are ways of interpreting Islam that could make it something other than a call to war. But even these benign constructions do not make it a call to peace. Verses such as “Fight those who believe not in Allah,” and “Fight and slay the pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem of war,” are not peaceful injunctions, no matter how one contextualizes.

Sigh...

The article also stated some things that Winston Churchill stated years ago.  Here is some of what was stated (I copied/pasted):

Although this came as a revelation to me, it should not have. After all, it is not as if Western civilization had no experience dealing with Islamic supremacism—what today we call “Islamist” ideology, the belief that sharia must govern society. Winston Churchill, for one, had encountered it as a young man serving in the British army, both in the border region between modern-day Afghanistan and Pakistan and in the Sudan—places that are still cauldrons of Islamist terror. Ever the perceptive observer, Churchill wrote:

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. . . . Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property—either as a child, a wife, or a concubine—must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

The article stated regarding Sharia (Law).  Here's some of what was stated (I copied/pasted):

Sharia rejects freedom of speech as much as freedom of religion. It rejects the idea of equal rights between men and women as much as between Muslim and non-Muslim. It brooks no separation between spiritual life and civil society. It is a comprehensive framework for human life, dictating matters of government, economy, and combat, along with personal behavior such as contact between the sexes and personal hygiene. Sharia aims to rule both believers and non-believers, and it affirmatively sanctions jihad in order to do so.

Even if this is not the only construction of Islam, it is absurd to claim—as President Obama did during his recent visit to a mosque in Baltimore—that it is not a mainstream interpretation. In fact, it is the mainstream interpretation in many parts of the world. Last year, Americans were horrified by the beheadings of three Western journalists by ISIS. American and European politicians could not get to microphones fast enough to insist that these decapitations had nothing to do with Islam. Yet within the same time frame, the government of Saudi Arabia beheaded eight people for various violations of sharia—the law that governs Saudi Arabia.

Three weeks before Christmas, a jihadist couple—an American citizen, the son of Pakistani immigrants, and his Pakistani wife who had been welcomed into our country on a fiancĂ©e visa—carried out a jihadist attack in San Bernardino, California, killing 14 people. Our government, as with the case in Fort Hood—where a jihadist who had infiltrated the Army killed 13 innocents, mostly fellow soldiers—resisted calling the atrocity a “terrorist attack.” Why? Our investigators are good at what they do, and our top officials may be ideological, but they are not stupid. Why is it that they can’t say two plus two equals four when Islam is involved?

This was also stated (I copied/pasted):

The dangerous flipside to our government’s insistence on making up its own version of Islam is that anyone who is publicly associated with Islam must be deemed peaceful. This is how we fall into the trap of allowing the Muslim Brotherhood, the world’s most influential Islamic supremacist organization, to infiltrate policy-making organs of the U.S. government, not to mention our schools, our prisons, and other institutions. The federal government, particularly under the Obama administration, acknowledges the Brotherhood as an Islamic organization—notwithstanding the ham-handed attempt by the intelligence community a few years back to rebrand it as “largely secular”—thereby giving it a clean bill of health. This despite the fact that Hamas is the Brotherhood’s Palestinian branch, that the Brotherhood has a long history of terrorist violence, and that major Brotherhood figures have gone on to play leading roles in terrorist organizations such as al Qaeda.

Then, at the end of the article, more of what Winston Churchill said many years ago, was stated (I copied/pasted):

To quote Churchill again:  “Facts are better than dreams.” In the real world, we must deal with the facts of Islamic supremacism, because its jihadist legions have every intention of dealing with us. But we can only defeat them if we resolve to see them for what they are."

Wow!

This article truly made me feel good!

Why?  Because what was reported and placed online by Hillsdale College in USA, says basically what I have commented on in the past.  Even though some people do not believe I speak truth regarding Islam.

Yes, I realize I've been hated.

Just as our Lord, Jesus Christ told us in John 15:18, "If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you."

You may wonder why I shared this information, and let you know that I am hated.  If so, realize that I have done this, so you can become educated to understand and accept truth.  Truth, regarding Islam.

Why is this important?

Because, people need to understand the truth about Islam.  And, what Muslims are taught to do.

After all, our world will be changing, as long as Islam becomes more and more bigger within countries.  Muslims will gain more ability to do what Sharia Law insists on happening, as they get our governments to allow them more rights.

So, we need to look to God.  And, accept what we need to do.

I have.

Have you?

If you have, you'll be blessed... even if your life isn't easy.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
