About Daniel Shayesteh

Dr Daniel was born into a Muslim family in Northern Iran. He became a radical Muslim leader and teacher of Islam in the militant Free Islamic Revolutionary Movement, closely supporting Ayatollah Khomeini. However, after falling out of favor with Khomeini’s political group, he escaped to Turkey where there began an amazing journey to faith in Jesus Christ.

Daniel's mission is to help others understand and lovingly respond to those who do not know Christ. He is also deeply concerned for the future of Western societies, their loss of confidence in Judeo-Christian values, and their persistent naivete about the implications of the world-wide Islamic revival.

A relentless ambition

In our previous letter, we discussed on how Allah changes with conditions.  As the root, he has shaped the culture of Muslim nations in the world and has not allowed his own people to rest also.  His prophet, Muhammad, chose to die rather than facing the Truth.  What would you expect his follower to be?  So unrest!  They were involved with shedding the blood of their own nations and others, as the history of Islam shows.  An unrest nation is not only unrest in itself, it will also disturb the peace of other nations too.  Do they?  Of course, they do, especially in the contemporary era when many countries in the non-Islamic world are dependent on their oil.  No wonder why many leaders in the West not only keep quiet towards the inhumane attitudes of Muslim leaders, but they have allowed them to penetrate and influence the western countries too. No wonder, why honor killings of Islam, its hate speeches and threats against critics have been established in the western countries.  Now Muslim leaders are asking for the establishment of Shari’a (the Islamic way of life) in the western countries.  They are offended by seeing ladies walking uncovered in the streets of America, London, France and others.  They do not have rest for the lack of amputation, hanging and stoning in the streets of non-Islamic countries.  They will not have rest until all countries follow the example of Saudi Arabia.  They never had rest in the Coptic Egypt, Zoroastrian Iran, Catholic Syria, Maronide Lebanon and Assyrian Iraq until they demolished their values.  In the same way, they will not have rest until they destroy the democratic values in the West.

What is motivating them to do these to others?   Allah and his Islam.   Aren’t they able to see the beauty of life and give up the miserable life Allah has left for them?  No.  Allah has closed their eyes from the beginning; they are not allowed to read the chapters of others’ lives.  Everybody who lives in Allah will be a threat to them.  You have only two choices in Allah; to obey Allah and destroy others or to die.  Their dependence on Allah becomes stronger when non-Muslim world keep quiet against the inhumane values of Allah.   You imagine what will happen when some western leaders under the pressure of oil and economic crisis speak in favor of Allah and say that he is the same God Christians follow, betraying their own nations.

What is the solution?

The solution is Christ.  I wish every body knew this.

A few years ago, I received a phone call from an atheist man in Sydney, saying that loved to support my ministry.  This honestly worried me immediately; as atheism says that religions are the opium of the world.  I thought that it could be a plot.  I said to him this was the first time I had heard a communist wanted to support a Christian.  “How can this be?”, I asked him.   He said, “Honestly, you guys (other two Australian Daniels too) have opened the eyes of many to the threat of Islam.   I was shocked on how some communist leaders are united with committed Muslims for the destruction of Christianity, but I have realized that what happened to communists in Islamic countries have never happened to us in the western countries, simply because of their Judeo-Christian values.”

I was not able to accept his financial support, but his words were so true and encouraging.  The reason that the democracy of the West does not exist in any other country, is because of the role of Christianity in its root.

We are responsible to help our communities to know Islam.  Islam will continue to subtly destroy the values of the West, unless we speak about the superior values of our root (Christ) and reveal the evil desires of Allah, the root of Islam.  If we do not know our enemy and do not create awareness in the community, the enemy will grow and dominate us.
