The “Religion of Peace and Tolerance” is busily engaged yet again to promoting harmonious accord with people of differing faiths. Recently, four Bible translators from Wycliffe were brutally gun downed in their offices.
This is a reprint from a facebook posting by Dr. James White of Alpha and Omega Ministries, Phoenix, Arizona. He raises a significant question about the nature of so-called moderate Muslims who abhor violence perpetrated in the name of Allah.
Before you misunderstand the headline and wonder whether or not Richard Dawkins has actually embraced The Faith once delivered, rest assured Dawkins is still an avowed atheist. However, in an article posted on the U.K. Sunday Times Online last April, Dawkins made a remarkable concession that perhaps Christianity is not the cause of all the worlds evil. Both he and choir mate Christopher Hitchens have long held that religion, especially Christianity, is toxic. It should be at best be ignored and at worst outlawed for the sake of the common good.
Here is a perspective by Dr. Peter Hammond. Dr. Hammond’s doctorate is in Theology. He was born in Capetown in 1960, grew up in Rhodesia and converted to Christianity in 1977. In addition to his academic work, he is a Missionary. I hope you find this informative.
By now most of you are aware of the plans to burn copies of the Koran on the anniversary of September 11, 2001 this upcoming weekend. Rev. Terry Jones of Dove World Outreach Center and his congregation have achieved international notoriety when they announced their plans to publicly burn Islam’s sacred scriptures. While there has been a minority of quiet supporters for Jones and his church, the overwhelming response from the media, political entities and heads of state has been one of outrage and condemnation. Rev. Jones is a U.S. citizen and as a U.S. citizen he has the legal right to express his opinions as long as he does not break any laws in the process of expressing his views. There is nothing illegal about what he plans to do. The bigger question is, as a professing believer is this something that he should do?

I used to scoff at writers such as Sam Harris, Kevin Phillips, and Chris Hedges when they warned that Christians were a major threat to American freedoms. Now, I’m not so sure. Of course, all their talk about Christians imposing a theocracy on America has about as much credibility as the “truther” theory that 9/11 was a U.S. government/Mossad conspiracy. But I wonder now if Christians, in their naivite and in their desire to be thought tolerant, aren’t inadvertently paving the way for an eventual Islamic theocracy.
Son of Hamas: A Gripping Account of Terror, Betrayal, Political Intrigue and Unthinkable Choices, by Mosab Hassan Yousef. Saltriver 2010, 265 pgs.
Rarely a day passes that we do not hear of some atrocity perpetrated by some followers of Islam. The perennial flash point for many of such atrocities is the Middle East especially against the state of Israel. Since the inception of the Jewish homeland in 1947, Israel has remained on a constant war footing against the assails of formal military incursions, Palestinian civilian backlash and individual homicide-bombers. In the past few decades, this hot bed of violence has birthed organizations such as Islamic Jihad, PLO and others. . This memoir is an insider’s look into one of the most infamous of these terror groups, Hamas.
