Daniel 11:5 says that the “King of the South”, the Arabs, “will grow strong.” They have since the term “petrol politics” became so important. The Bible said that the Arab’s “hand would be against everyone” and that he would be as a “wild donkey” (Gen. 16:12). But God promised to multiply the descendents of the Arabs (Genesis 16:10), and bless them. He planted their tents on the oil wells of the earth! But the 22 nations surrounding Israel are determined to exterminate her.
The Islamic Mein Kampf
A common trait of socialists on display in France. If you thought it was bad here in the United States, with Democrats becoming indignant over voter ID laws so they can get the illegal alien vote, take a look at France. That country is on the verge of electing a far left socialist who is actively courting the Muslim immigrant vote.
Present Middle East hostilities between the Arabs and Jews can be traced to a disposition of hatred originating almost four thousand years ago. At that time God made an unconditional covenant with the Hebrew patriarch Abraham. Due to the inherent blessings contained within this covenant, the infamous family characters of the Bible; Hagar, Ishmael, Esau, Moab, Ammon, and Amalek, coveted the contents of this covenant. These jealous individuals and their descendants that followed came to hate the Hebrews, the heirs of this blessed covenant.
The “Arab Spring.” The mainstream media clung to this phrase last year in their giddy haste to promote what they saw as a flowering of freedom-loving, democratic uprisings across the Arab world, for which they were eager to credit President Obama’s famed Cairo speech as partial inspiration. Instead, it unfolded with freedom-hating Islamic fundamentalists seizing political dominance, and the Arab Spring came to look more a Muslim Winter. What went wrong?
The Muslim Brotherhood’s American charm offensive got off to a rough start this week. Members of the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), the Brotherhood’s political wing, arrived in Washington D.C. this week for a series of meetings with U.S. officials, media, and think tanks, with the purpose of presenting a moderate image of the Brotherhood and allaying fears that it will impose Sharia law and threaten Egypt’s minority groups, including secularists and Coptic Christians. Instead, the Brotherhood’s delegation was confronted with news that, back in Egypt, those fears were being confirmed.
The situation in cities besieged by the Syrian army is getting bloodier, while the political situation gets more confused and muddled by the day. A UN peace plan being pushed by former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, first accepted by President Bashar Assad and the rebels, is in the process of failing, as once again, the Syrian dictator has reneged on implementing the terms. As Syrian tanks and artillery continue to attack several cities, the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist groups are beginning to flex their muscles in the councils of the political opposition, while radical Sunnis form independent battalions to fight the Syrian army — and the Alawite minority running Syria — declaring jihad on the Syrian dictator while fighting under the black flag of radical Islam.
"We are the only major political party in Egypt that acknowledged we will honor the treaty with Israel."
The speaker was Dr. Amr Darrag, a senior member of the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) and the Muslim Brotherhood appearing this week in London. Following the FJP's success in the first free parliamentary elections to take place in Egypt, the party has begun sending delegations of party members to countries around the world, meeting with politicians and opinion-makers, in an attempt to convince them of the Muslim Brotherhood's new and moderate image.
Let's do a little exploration of Islam and Judeo-Christian teachings for ourselves. The best place I know to find out about anything, especially religion, is to look at its own writings. You see, unlike the politicians and, unfortunately, most of what passes for the church these days, I believe that people are intelligent enough to arrive at their own conclusions when they know the facts. Of course, with the pressures of day-to-day life, it seems that there is little time left over to examine with a critical eye what our news media and preachers are telling us regarding religious beliefs. So, I've done a little research of my own that I would like to share with you.
The parliamentary elections that have begun in Egypt will impress only the most starry-eyed of democracy champions. These are the people who, like Senator Joe Lieberman?, think that the “Arab Spring” is all about people “demanding lives of democracy, dignity, economic opportunity, and involvement in the modern world.”
