It Makes Me Wonder
By Daymond Duck
It is common knowledge that 15 of the 19 terrorists that flew planes into the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001 were from Saudi Arabia. The U.S. has even built a 9/11 Memorial & Museum to honor the 2,983 people that were killed.
It is common knowledge that the founder of al-Qaeda was Osama ben Laden, and he was born in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Former Pres. Barack Obama even boasted about killing him in May 2011.
It is common knowledge that there are more than 3,000 mosques in the U.S. and many of them were financed and built by Saudi Arabia. According to some experts, almost 100 of these mosques are radical Islamist mosques and yet as far as this writer knows, not even one has ever been shut down.
As a candidate for president, Donald Trump was strongly criticized for saying the U.S. might have to consider shutting down mosques for the hatred coming out of some of them. He was accused of infringing upon the religious freedom of Muslims.
It is estimated that there are almost 300 Muslim schools in the U.S. It is a fact that some teach the Wahhabi religion (kill the infidels, hate Jews, etc.) and nothing is done about it.
It is common knowledge that the overwhelming majority of terrorist attacks in the world are launched by Muslims. But there is probably more criticism (called names such as hater, Islamophobe, etc.) of those who point this out than those who encouraged the killing.
Don’t question it. Believe it. For whatever it is worth, it has been reported that in 2008, Pres. Tyyip Erdogan of Turkey said, “There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam, and that’s it. . . The mosques are our barracks, the minarets our bayonets, the cupolas our helmets, and the faithful our soldiers,”
But in 2015, it was reported that presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said, “Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.”
It turns out that Pres. Trump was in Saudi Arabia when a Muslim fanatic named Salman Abedi exploded a bomb in Manchester, England. He killed 22 innocent people, maimed and injured dozens more. The sight of young girls with nails sticking in their faces must have been as horrible as the site of innocent people leaping to their deaths from the World Trade Center Towers.
Anyway, while in Saudi Arabia, Pres. Trump spoke to about 54 Arab leaders. He was talking about terrorism when he said, “This is a battle between good and evil. Drive them out of your places of worship, your communities, your Holy Land and the earth.” He also said:
This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects, or different civilizations. This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it. This is a battle between good and evil. Religious leaders must make this absolutely clear: Barbarism will deliver you no glory—piety to evil will bring you no dignity. If you choose the path of terror, your life will be empty, your life will be brief, and your soul will be condemned.
It is my understanding that Islam is a religion of works. Muslims believe an angel records a person’s good and bad deeds A person’s good deeds must outnumber their bad deeds or they will not go to paradise.
But Muslims don’t know whether their good deeds outnumber their bad deeds or not. So, they don’t have an assurance of salvation unless they become a Jihadi. If they become a Jihadi and die in a holy war, they will go to paradise and they can take 14 family members with them.
Pres. Trump told the Arabs, “Religious leaders must make this absolutely clear: Barbarism will deliver you no glory—piety to evil will bring you no dignity. If you choose the path of terror, your life will be empty, your life will be brief, and your soul will be condemned.”
Wow! Why did it take an inexperienced, possibly baby Christian, non-pastor to say that? Does Pres. Trump care more than our Christian leaders about how long Muslims live or where Muslims will spend eternity? And why were his remarks so well received by Arab leaders? It makes me wonder.
