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.

Pray that I may declare it fearlessly (Eph.6:20b)

The sworn enemies of the Gospel do not give up. We, therefore, must expect to be bothered, confined, imprisoned, persecuted and killed. They persecuted and killed the One who revealed the glories of heaven. If they are so against the Prince of Peace, obviously they will act the same towards His followers.

What we can do in the face of all the above pressures in this world?

Every person in the world can only make one of two choices:  follow the Prince of absolute Peace, Love, Truth, Justice and Holiness; or follow His sworn enemy.

We are full of excitement that we have a new identity in Christ and are able to stand for His absolute Peace, Love, Truth, Justice and Holiness and hold them as the standard of our lives, no matter how angry His enemies will be. We have solid reasons to be excited; our sins are forgiven; we are free and have the hope of glory.

On the other hand, the enemies of Christ are chained by their man-made traditions.  Sadly they are not able to see their bondages. This means it is not easy to talk to them. Some of them are full of anger and are even taught to practise anger and avoid listening. The Lord has chosen and called us to deal with these very hard ones. Please hold us firm in your prayers so that we might be always able to remember our identity in Christ and declare His saving message fearlessly.

Why are you so determined to kill?

Does anyone have a sound solution for a hostile person or religion? Is anyone other than Christ the solution? The biblical response is "No", and the Bible gives a reason for it.

The purpose of Christ's revelation in reaching out to the nations was first to reconcile them to God (John 3:16; 2Cor.5:18) which is called "salvation", and  second to reconcile them to each other (Col.1:20) which is called "peace". We see that spiritual newness is the base for political and social peace and tolerance:
He (Christ) himself is our peace, who has made the two (Jews and Gentiles) one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility (Eph.2:14).
The unifying mission of Christ is unique and perfect and no one or religion in the world is able to unite the nations with one another and with God as Jesus does.

He said to those who were determined to kill Him:
"... you are ready to kill me, because you have no room for my word....If you were Abraham's children, then you would do the things Abraham did. As it is, you are determined to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do such things. You are doing the things your own father does....you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him" (John 8:37,39-41,44). 
“But, if you give room to my words in your heart, I will set you free from killing and hostility, and then you will become the true children of Abraham; "Do not be like Cain, who belonged to the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own actions were evil and his brother's were righteous" (1John 3:12).
 For Jesus, only people who are strangers to God can be hostile toward others. His plan in coming to this world was to set people free from hatred, hostility and killing and to make them friends of one another. We can confess that we are his living examples who have been freed from hatred and hostility. The glory of freedom belongs to Him our Lord, but to no one else (Acts 4:12).

Speak out, the Threat of Islam's One-Way Freedom Is Huge

Islam is undertaking multidimensional warfare against your country.

Saudi Arabia, the most active country in financing terrorism, has already started the war with your country and has endangered its national security. It has supported mosques and other organizations which are spreading Wahhabism, the state religion of Saudi Arabia.  They are establishing hot-beds of terrorism, everywhere. They preach hatred, teach jihad, and encourage polygamy, as well as child marriages and forced marriages. Saudi officials do not allow you to take your  holy book to Saudi Arabia if you are a non-Muslim, but Saudi Arabians have been free to build thousands of Islamic centers, schools and mosques in Europe, North America, South America, Australia, Asia and Africa in less than a decade. It is Islam that teaches them this One-Way Freedom.

Islamic One-Way Freedom is anything but freedom; it is the enemy of true freedom. It slyly enters free societies in order to destroy real freedom. Islamists abuse freedom in democratic countries in order to establish their authoritarian religion at the cost of free values. They are now paving the road for the full establishment of Islamic law in your country. Once it is established, your country will become like Saudi Arabia or Iran, where Islam is the ruler, and humanity crushed under its dictatorship.

Many giant financial institutions in western countries are expanding their regulations to cater to the financial principles of Islamic states, purely to make more money. Islamic banking principles are not only for banking: they are a weapon for financial warfare. Their goal is to establish the Islamic community’s supremacy gradually, until everything in the country falls into Islamists’ hands. Great Britain is the outstanding contemporary example of this. Leaders in this country opened the door to Islamic financing decades ago. Now Islamic courts have become part of judiciary system in England. In Great Britain, the Islamists’ money has  carried with itself a religion which is establishing itself in England and is aiming at the erosion of all other religions and beliefs in this country. If English people do not wake up and speak out, it will not take long for their country to become an Islamic nation.

Please do not wait for your presidents, prime ministers and politicians. Many of them have fallen into a pit of political correctness and multiculturalism.  They are paralyzed with fear and ignorance, and unable to confront the Islamic threats. They value their jobs more than their (your) country and therefore keep quiet against Islamic conspiracy. They do not recognize that their silence and indifference is a betrayal to their own nation.

If they loved their country, Islamists would not be able to disregard democratic values and impose themselves on the majority. Your politicians are ignoring the fact that all Islamic countries disregard Reciprocity, Equal Opportunity, Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Speech, even though they are legally accountable to the world through their signatures to the United Nations international agreements. Yet your politicians turn a blind eye when the servants of these Islamic countries spread their inhumane principles in your country and breach the rights of others. The money of the petrol lords has blinded many of these politicians to such a degree that they are unable to ancitipate the  disasters which loom in the future as a result of the Islamists’ investments.

What can you do in such a situation, where many politicians are unwilling to solve or address the problem of Islam imposed on your country? If ever there was a moment for you to speak out against the Islamist vision for your nation, and stand for the democratic values  that moment is now.

You need to:
1. Speak out and show that you care for the rights of your fellow citizens.
2. Stand behind those who are courageous and speak out.
3. Help your community to know the truth and act on the truth, before it is too late.

Who Can Care for the World and Maintain Order in It?

Do people from diverse nations care for each other? Do they know the chapters of each others’ lives and beliefs? Have they discovered the hidden barriers among themselves in order to work out the solution and remove the barriers? If yes, to what extend? If not, why not?

Do they know where the world is heading to? Are they happy with what the world is? If not, do they have any goal for the well being of the world? What values and channel have they discovered to be the best in order to remove their unsatisfaction and lead the world to a better future? Are they interested to contribute toward the well being of the world?

Do they know whether or not their ideas and beliefs are able to avoid dictatorship and conflict amongst nations and lead them to a peaceful relationship? Do they have peace-making values in their beliefs that can create willingness in them for the enforcement of peace in the world? Do they know that misunderstanding and misinterpretations sometimes lead to hostility and bloodshed?

Do they believe in real change that leads to high achievement? Do they know that through understanding they can create and generate better ideas? Do they know that understanding enhances creativity in every level of life? Do they know that there is capacity in each person to achieve the best value and thereby make a glorious change in their lives and relationship with others? Are they willing to exert high levels of effort towards understanding and change?

Do they know the real meaning of democracy and freedom? Do they know that the freedom of one is not at the expense of others? Have they ever been able to make time and come out from their personal zones and evaluate their beliefs globally with other ideas and beliefs? Do they know whether or not they have a universal value to accept every member of human race no matter of their beliefs, races, nationalities, etc.?

One reason for peoples’ disinterest in contributing genuine efforts for the well being of others and the world is their lack of knowledge. They do not feel obligated for understanding the chapters of each others’ lives and beliefs. However, the case is different with Christians. Christians are called to understand, discover the real meaning of freedom, taste it, and thereby maintain order in the world. The Bible says;

When a country is rebellious, it has many rulers, but a man of understanding and knowledge maintains order (Prov.28:2).

Choose…knowledge rather than choice gold…I have understanding and power (Prov.8:10).

Formerly, when you did not know God, you were slaves to those who by nature are not gods. But now… you know God (Gal. 4:8-9).

He will punish those who do not know God…They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the majesty of his power on the day he comes to be glorified in his holy people and to be marveled at among all those who have believed (2Thes.1:9-10b).

Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free (John 8:31-32).

Without understanding, we will not be able to lead nations to peace for the world and to the eternal peace. We need to take this issue more seriously than ever in this modern era of 'globalization' that has brought people from diverse nations together. EFD has committed itself to this ministry; to wake up the churches in Australia and the world to learn on how simply to address the eye opening words of Christ to the consciences of people from other nations and prepare them to have peace in their hearts and to contribute for maintaining a peaceful order in the world.

What if we compromise with Islam (2)?

Why do some westerners want to compromise with Islam? What kind of future will our children have if Islam is rewarded and praised in our societies? Has any Islamic country done so well with Islam that we want to compromise with Islam in order to share in the same benefits?
Let us see what picture of Islam is given in the Qur’an:
Spiritually: Sin is inspired in man by Allah (Q.91:7-8). In other words, man has been corrupted by Allah’s own hands. Doesn’t the sin inspired by Allah affect Muslims’ spiritual, social, moral, political and economic life? It does.
Socially: Muslims are better than others (Q.3:110), and among Muslims men are superior to women (Q.4:34). Wives are asked to abide at home and not to go in public (Q.33:33). Husbands beat their wives (Q.4:34; 38:44). Non-Muslims are unclean (najis in Arabic) (Q.9:28). Those who reject Islam are dogs and evil (Q.7:175-177). Jews are called monkey, pig and donkey (Q.2:65; 5:60; 62:5) and Christians are called monkey (Q.5:60). Muslims are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind… (Q.3:110).
Politically: Muslims are called not only to avoid friendship with Christians and Jews and others (Q.5:51), but also to avoid friendship with their own fathers and brothers who are not committed to Islam (Q.9:23). Other religions and believers are fully unacceptable (Q.3:85). And Jihad is ordained for Muslims against the followers of other religions and beliefs (Q.2:216). Allah loves those who do battle for his cause (Q.61:4). So, the imposition of the Islamic Law (Shari’a Law) is the global vision of the Qur’an.
Morally: The Qur’an states that Allah has inspired sin (immorality) in humankind (Q.91:8). There are shocking and shameful statements about both Muslim and non-Muslim women in the Qur’an (i.e. Q.33 and 24:31,33). Such statements become even uglier in the Islamic traditions where they are even applied to infant girls. In addition, Islam teaches lying and deceiving as legitimate tools for the sake and progress of religion (Q.2:225; 3:28; 16:106). These verses establish that there are circumstances that can "compel" a Muslim to tell a lie.
Economically: The Qur’an says, “It is not for a believer, man and woman, to have any choice in their affairs, when Allah and his apostle have decreed a matter…(Q.33:36). That is why there is not a definition for work in Islam. Everything you earn belongs to Muhammad (and his representatives) and Allah. If even Muslims do not have any choice in their relationship with Muslims, what about non-Muslims who are called animals?
Committed Muslims and the Qur’an have already responded to the opening question. They will not compromise with the values of unclean West, but they are delighted if the West chooses to compromise with Islam and put itself under Islam’s yoke.
Islam is challenging not just our democratic values but additionally is forcing us to surrender to its bondage? Sadly, unwillingness to solve the problem of Islam has penetrated almost every aspect of life in the West and non-Islamic countries? Are we waiting for Muslim leaders to do something? Aren’t we aware that the Qur’an teaches Muslims to erode the life values of non-Muslims?
Do we feel responsible for the well being of our family, community and country? Do we believe our lives should reflect that there is a difference between good and evil? Do we? If yes, then let us stand against Islamic intimidation by living for Christ, attaching ourselves strongly to His holiness, justice, love and victory.

What if we compromise with Islam (1)?

There are three sources of information that we can use to answer the above question:
1. Muslims,
2. The Qur’an, the holy book for Muslims, and
3. The West.
Almost all Muslims (some under the weight of cultural pressures) will respond that Islam is spiritually, socially, morally, politically, economically (in all dimensions of life) superior to and ahead of all other religions and beliefs. In asserting this view they will introduce you to a picture of Islam that is completely strange to the pages of the Qur’an.
Let us see what picture of Islam is given in the Qur’an:
Spiritually: Sin is inspired in man by Allah (Q.91:7-8), in other words, man has been corrupted by Allah’s own hands, and therefore no one, even Muhammad himself, has the assurance of salvation (Q.46:9). We all know that spiritual corruption or uncertainty is the root of all other corruptions and uncertainties in life. For this reason, uncertainty is huge in the Islamic world and has penetrated every dimension of life.
Socially: Muslims are better than others (Q.3:110), and among Muslims men are superior to women (Q.4:34). Wives are asked to abide at home and not to go in public (Q.33:33). In the April 9, 2002 issue, The Wall Street Journal published about the concept of blood money in Saudi Arabia, the heartland of Islam, referring to the inferiority of women and people from religious groups other than Islam. If a person has been killed or caused to die by another, the latter has to pay blood money or compensation, as follows;
– 100,000 riyals if the victim is a Muslim man
– 50,000 riyals if a Muslim woman
– 50,000 riyals if a Christian man
– 25,000 riyals if a Christian woman
– 6,666 riyals if a Hindu man
– 3,333 riyals if a Hindu woman
Politically: Muslims are called not only to avoid friendship with Christians and Jews and others (Q.5:51), but also to avoid friendship with their own fathers and brothers who do not follow Islam (Q.9:23). Other religions and believers are fully unacceptable (Q.3:85). And Jihad is ordained for Muslims against the followers of other religions and beliefs (Q.2:216). Allah loves those who do battle for his cause (Q.61:4). The imposition of the Islamic Law (Shari’a Law) is the global vision of the Qur’an.
Morally: The Qur’an states that Allah has inspired sin (immorality) in humankind (Q.91:8). There are shocking and shameful statements about both Muslim and non-Muslim women in the Qur’an (i.e. Q.33 and 24:31,33). Such statements become even uglier in the Islamic traditions where they are even applied to infant girls. In addition, Islam teaches lying, deceiving, etc. as legitimate tools for the sake and progress of religion.
Economically: The Qur’an says, “It is not for a believer, man and woman, to have any choice in their affairs, when Allah and his apostle have decreed a matter…(Q.33:36). That is why there is not a definition for work in Islam. Everything you earn belongs to Muhammad (and his representatives) and Allah. If even Muslims do not have any choice, including economic choices, what about non-Muslims?
Why, then, do some westerners want to compromise with Islam, if this is the case with Islam? What kind of future will our children have if Islam is rewarded and praised in our societies? Has any Islamic country done so well with Islam that we want to compromise with Islam in order to share in the same benefits?
What about us? Do we feel responsible for the well being of our family and community with a desire to have a better quality of relationship with others? Do we have any standards in our hearts that make us want to stand whole-heartedly for the best values in life? Do we believe our lives should reflect that there is a difference between good and evil?
Muslims and the Qur’an have responded to the opening question. They will not compromise with the West, but they are delighted if the West chooses to compromise with Islam. The West however is not certain about how to answer the question. They are yet to make up their mind.
Sadly, many in the West have forgotten about our Lord Jesus Christ and the spiritual disciplines upon which our freedom is based. Often Christians have been more darkness than light and have not reflected the glory of Christ to those who are in darkness.
“….. when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”
By his grace alone, he will still find in some! Blessed is he who comes in the Name of the Lord!

What a shocking proposal the Muslims in England have made?!

The So-Called Moderate Muslim Leaders in England have proposed that the British Government accept that the only solution to combat the threat of terrorism in Great Britain is the “Shari’a”, the law of Islam.

After reading this, I was shocked at how manipulative the Muslim leaders in England are. They are even more destructive than the terrorists in trying for the legitimization of the “Shari’a”. In Islam, this manner of destruction is called Taqiyya, which is one of the most efficient arms of jihad, for winning the war against infidels.

These Muslims do not have even a little mercy towards Britain despite using the advantages of this nation. How do you get rid of terrorism through “Shari’a”? Is “Shari’a” a real solution to terrorism, or is it the real gate-way to terrorism? Let us closely and briefly see what these Muslims mean by proposing “Shari’a” as the solution?

1. Shari’a says: The true religion with Allah is Islam (Q.3:19). No religion other than Islam shall be accepted (Q.3:85). Christians and Jews and polytheists are the worst among creatures and they go to hell (Q.98:6). So, Shari’a means, as in all Islamic countries, that Islam must be the only dominant religion at the cost of demolishing all other religions and beliefs.
2. Shari’a says: You (Muslims) are the best folk that has been raised up unto mankind (Q.3:110). Muslims must not befriend non-Muslims (Q.4:89,144; 5:51). Christians and Jews must pay to Muslims in order to stay alive. They have to be humiliated. They belong to hell (Q.9:29-30, read the whole chapter). Pagans (or the holders of other beliefs other than Christianity and Judaism) have not choice but to die or to embrace Islam (Q.9:5). Take therefore none of them for friends, till they have fled their homes for the cause of Allah. If they turn back, then seize them, and slay them wherever you find them (Q.4:89). So, Shari’a means that the only solution for Christians and non-Muslims to overcome this humiliation is to become Muslim.
3. Shari’a says: Prepare against the infidels whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them (Q.8:59). Both the Qura’an and the Shari’a commands Muslims to prepare themselves for terrorizing (Hujum in Arabic) Christians and non-Muslims.

If you are a committed Muslim or you are able to understand what is in the heart and mind of a committed Muslim, you will be able to understand the real meaning of these Muslims’ proposal. It means that these younger Muslims want you to accept Islam as your religion; otherwise, they are not going to stop terrorism. To stop fighting against infidels is a sin in Islam.

However, if you do not understand Islam and the will of its followers, your only choice is to be deceived by these sorts of Muslims. This is the reason that England and other European countries have lost a great deal to Islam.

Why Are Committed Muslims Trying to Get Polygamy Legalized in the West?

Committed Muslims in the West have declared polygamy in Islam as grounded in science and humanitarianism in order to make it more acceptable. These Muslims claim that it is both scientific and humanitarian for a man to have more than one wife when the population of women is greater than men. Do they really believe their solutions are scientific or humanitarian? No. They are saying this because they know there are so many people who simply will not trouble themselves to consider whether or not this is based on truth but will simply believe whatever may seem pleasing or enticing at the moment, thus enabling the establishment of the Islamic agenda in the West with their support. This is an opportunity that committed Muslims will not miss.

Why aren’t these Muslims willing to call it scientific or humanitarian for a woman to marry two or more men when the male population exceeds that of the female population in a society? Why won’t they allow Muslim women to marry non-Muslim men, even though Muslim men are allowed to marry non-Muslim ladies? Why do they kill Muslim girls for loving and marrying non-Muslim boys? They are oppressed or killed because Allah’s declaration regarding polygamy seeks only to please the fleshly desires of Muslim men and to eradicate all non - believers, which undermines every allusion to anything scientific or humanitarian.

The United Nations’ 2005 gender statistic (http://unstats.un.org/unsd/demographic/products/indwm/ww2005/tab1a.htm) proves that the population of men in most Islamic countries is typically greater than that of the female population. What is the scientific solution of Islam in this case? There are no scientific applications to be found here. Instead, Allah decreed war against all non-Muslim societies, calling all Muslims, as a matter of religious obligation, to brutishly invade these societies, and to slaughter all non-Muslim men who refuse to accept Islam, in order that there may be a majority of women, which would allow for every Muslim man to have up to four wives and as many slaves as he desires.

It is a fact that never once, during the first thirteen years of Muhammad’s ministry, before he came to power as a statesman and Commander of the Islamic Army, was there any decree given by Allah that Muslims should engage in polygamy. It was only in the last ten years of Muhammad’s ministry, after he became rich by looting Meccan caravans and Jews, and after war (jihad) against non-Muslims became obligatory, that polygamy was mentioned. Thousands of Jewish and pagan girls and women were taken captive for the pleasure of Muslim men. There is also evidence that even some of Muhammad’s own friends and followers were embarrassed by his hostile decrees and eventually left Muhammad and Islam. Some of these men were murdered for deserting Muhammad after the Islamic Army became sovereign over Saudi Arabia, but those who were not killed were given the opportunity to redeem their lives by returning to service in the Army of Islam.

Committed Muslims are also obtaining wives in non-Islamic countries via financial and cultural jihad. An important example of how completely effective this tactic is, can be traced back seven hundred years ago to Indonesia when Muslim merchants began targeting Indonesia, and attracting its authorities’ attention to their wealth. Muslim men were able to obtain the consent of these unwary authorities to marry Indonesian women, focusing on demographical increase and, eventually, Muslims replaced a Hindu-Buddhist Indonesia with the Islamic Indonesia we know today.

Clearly, the scientific and humanitarian solutions so loudly proclaimed by committed Muslims are not really scientific or humanitarian at all, which is why they work so persistently to keep Islam’s anti-women legacies alive: If women were given any value as humans in Islamic countries, Muslims could not hold on to their polygamist traditions. The reality is that they have closed themselves off from the Truth. In the Truth, only a man and a woman can join together in marriage and establish real love. For this reason, God created one Adam and one Eve, not many Eves for one Adam. Sadly, some in the Bible have also ignored this truth. To justify Muhammad’s polygamy, committed Muslims have started to use biblical references of polygamy. For their own purposes in discovering logic and truth, they declare the Bible to be distorted and useless, but for the justification of polygamy, the Bible seems to hold value for them.

The reality behind the committed Muslims’ motives for polygamy in the West is to increase their numbers by having many children, thereby achieving a dominant majority as speedily as possible, while imposing themselves on Westerners, as their forefathers did to other non-Muslim societies in the Middle-East. Polygamy was not commonly used by Muslims as a primary tool for domination, but the use of force and violence was used first in order to bring people under submission, making them ripe for domination through the use of polygamy. Now, it is being used in contemporary society as a form of spreading Islam in a subtle, yet effective way.

The contemporary army of Islam does not have the war power to invade western countries, and dominate them by killing their men and taking their wives. They have, therefore, chosen cultural and financial fighting approaches for which the contemporary mind of the West is ready. First, the establishment of Sharia (Islamic law) under the pretence of multiculturalism which will gradually, but inevitably, lead to total domination. The Western liberal and altruistic attitude has become a poison to its own people. A poison which will quickly spread until Islam has gathered as many supporters as it needs to accomplish its ungodly mission.
Decades ago, committed Muslims realized that a bloodless victory over passive non-Muslim societies was an investment in demographical increase and domination by numbers. The increase of the Muslim population in western countries in recent decades is proof of their success. If polygamy is legalized in western countries, success will be highly rewarding for the Islamic agenda: Within a span of 7 to 14 years, every committed Muslim man could potentially add as many as 28 children to the Islamic population in any Western nation. That is, if each of a possible four wives bears the average seven children per household, which is fairly standard for traditional Muslim families. This will not be the end of the story: When polygamy is established, committed Muslims will certainly push hard to legalize concubines, referred to as mistresses in the West, and short term marriages.

Western countries do not know the hidden agendas behind the requests of committed Muslims. There are some humanists and atheists who have sided with committed Muslims because of their own ideologies, uniting to establish a stronger anti-Christian stand in the West. Sadly, these people do not know that once Islam gains power they will no longer have the freedom to exercise their rights. Since the rise of Islam, many humanists, atheists and others have been burned and killed, as has been the case in the contemporary radical Islamic countries, including the Islamic Republic of Iran. There is no doubt when committed Muslims take over the West they will first kill their non-Muslim western supporters, who once opened their arms to them in the name of ideology or democracy. Almost all communists in Iran supported Ayatollah Khomeini against the Shah in the years prior to the 1979 Revolution, but they were either killed or imprisoned, or were forced to escape after the Revolution. Escaping did not mean that they were completely out of danger. Some who did manage to escape as far away as Europe were quickly discovered and brutally murdered by the agents of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

There is a trap behind every Islamic value that committed Muslims proclaim as righteous, and Westerners will be in a much safer place if they recognize the hidden agendas in Islam before it is too late. Committed Muslims can be easily compared with the Angel of Darkness: They outwardly appear to be a people of light and peace, but inwardly they are dark and hostile (“…for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.” 2 Corinthians 11:14). These men who seek to dominate the West through polygamy and violent extermination have deceived westerners with their pious disguises, but Jesus Christ warned men such as these: “Woe to you…hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within are full of dead people’s bones and all uncleanness. So you also appear outwardly righteous to others, but within you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.” (Matthew 23:27-28).

Polygamy: Embarrassing to Middle-Easterners Too

The Muslims who press for polygamy in the western countries are a source of embarrassment to millions of their own fellow Muslims throughout the world. 1400 years after the domination of Islam, not even one percent (1%) of Muslims supports polygamy. One reason for this is that since Muhammad, the best man humanity has ever known according to Islam, was unsuccessful with his multiple wives, it would be very unlikely, almost impossible, for his followers to be successful with their wives. To rescue themselves and their societies from the Islamic decree of polygamy, Muslims in the Middle-East have shown that the actions of Muhammad and his immediate successors are irrelevant to their own lives. Because of fear from Islam, Muslims do not have any choice but to justify what Muhammad and those after him did, but even the way they justify the polygamous lives of their prophet and other leaders is done in such a way as to excuse their families from polygamy. Their justification is that Muhammad and his successors were righteous men closer to Allah than they themselves are, and therefore able to treat their multiple wives equally.

Polygamy wouldn’t be practiced in the Middle-East if the religious leaders did not impose themselves on people, as they are trying to do in the western countries. Due to the influence of the western life in Middle-Eastern countries throughout the previous decades and Muslims’ strong disinterest in polygamy, almost all Islamic countries have made polygamy conditional, ignoring the expectation of Islam. One condition is that you need to get permission from your wife for the second marriage. Did Muhammad or his successors ask permission from any of their wives for their next marriage? The other one is that the age of marriage is higher than the recommendation of Muhammad. Time and time again he encouraged his followers to marry little girls in order to justify his marriage with the little girl, Aisha.

The reality is that if a Muslim man aims to have a second wife, he will receive extreme opposition from his own family members. Why? Because polygamy among Muslim leaders was the cause of political, social, moral and economic disasters in Islam’s history since the rise of Islam.

The following verses and comments of Muhammad regarding women give some insight into why he was unsuccessful in his polygamous marriage and did not leave a good legacy for Islamic societies. Once Muhammad said, “The best of you is he who is best to his wife” (Tirmidhi & Ibn Majah). As he offers no specific answer for this, allow me to provide you with some statements directly from Muhammad and his Qur’an:

  • Among the Believers (Muslims) are men who have been true to their covenant with Allah… (Q.33:23).
  • They ask thee (Muhammad) concerning women’s courses. Say: They are a hurt and a pollution: … (Q.2:222).
  • Women are discouraged from going outside the house (Q.33:33), but if they go, they must cover themselves in order not to be recognized (Q.33:59).
  • Muhammad once said to a woman: ‘Watch how you treat your husband for he is your Paradise and your Hell (Suyuti, commenting on Q.4:34)
  • Husbands can beat their wives (Q.4:34; 38:44)
  • Wives should not be saddened for anything you may give/tell them (Q.33:51)
  • Muhammad struck his favorite wife, Aisha, in the chest one evening when she left the house without his permission. Aisha narrates, "He struck me on the chest which caused me pain.” (Muslim :: Book 4 : Hadith 2127 )
  • Muhammad said: “Never will succeed such a nation as makes a woman their ruler” (Bukhari: Volume 9: Book 88: Hadith 219).
  • If any of your women are guilty of lewdness, take the evidence of four witnesses from amongst you against them; and if they testify, confine them to houses until death do claim them, or Allah ordain for them some (other) way (Q.4:15).

But the punishment for men with the same crime is so different if they simply repent:

  • If two men among you are guilty of lewdness, punish them both. If they repent and amend, Leave them alone; for Allah is Oft-returning, Most Merciful (Q.4:16)

There are hundreds of other references which I am not able to refer to here, some of which are highly disrespectful towards women.
1400 years of bloodshed between Sunnis and Shiites started with the problems arising from Muhammad’s polygamy. As Abraham’s problem in marriage caused hatred and bloodshed between the descendents of Ishmael (Arabs) and Isaac (Jews), the polygamous marriage of Muhammad has also caused innumerous bloody wars that Sunnis and Shiites were not able to get over.
There were a number of things which Muhammad did that made his wives unhappy, one significant thing being that throughout war time, Muhammad slept with some of the female captives, even in the war zone. Sometimes, he had a wife only for a night (called temporary marriage). As a result of his wives’ discontent, Allah revealed verses to him threatening his wives with divorce if they did not keep quiet (Q.66:3-5). Even his most favorite young wife, Aisha, said to Muhammad several times that Allah was always interested in pleasing himself alone. In one case, two men found Aisha guilty of adultery, which created the chaos between the later established Sunnis and Shiites. This made Muhammad unhappy of course and he did not speak to his wife for a month. He consulted his son-in-law, Ali, who was in favour of a divorce (Bukhari :: Volume 9 :: Book 92 :: Hadith 462). On the other hand, Muhammad was under pressure from her father, Abu Bakr, who was Muhammad’s right hand man and therefore did not dare to apply the punishment for adultery on her. He was trying to find a way to release himself from his duty. He eventually received a verse from Allah that four men are needed to witness adultery (Q.24:13), not two. This made Ali unhappy and eventually created a huge chasm between the family of Ali and Abu Bakr and thereby between Shiites and Sunnis. Just immediately after the death of Muhammad, there was a bloody war between friends of Ali and of Aisha.
Shiites still call Aisha an adulterer. I have even witnessed ceremonies, in Iran, where scarecrows of Abu Bakr (Aisha’s father) and Omar (the second successor and father-in-law) are burnt to express hatred towards these top leaders. No Shiite would name his daughter Aisha. For practicing Sunnis, Shiite women and girls are categorized as slaves, as is also the case for practicing Shiites towards Sunni women and girls. This explains why Zarqavy, the master mind of Al Qaedah, issued in an internet order in Iraq that female Shiites (including wives) are the property of Sunni men and belong to them.
The above will attest to the influence of Muhammad’s polygamy within the Middle-Eastern communities. The affects of polygamy in Muhammad’s time has largely contributed to the wars among Muslims throughout the history of Islam. Coming from a polygamous family, I know from my own experience that the injustice, discrimination, jealousy and unfairness towards ladies in Islam do not match the marital values of Christianity. Westerners need to wake up and reject the lies of those Muslims who press on for polygamy in the West.

No Truth, rather Fantasy

In my trips to western countries, I discovered that some Muslims spread false news that the invasion of Muslims into Spain and India were very peaceful, resulting in the liberation of those nations.

For those of us who were once committed Muslims and know the motivation behind Islam’s invasions, we can see the falsehood of this claim. Surprisingly though, there are some in the West who actually believe this, despite the contradiction of history. Obviously, one of the things that has encouraged these Muslims to be bold in their deception is the writings of some westerners who have chosen to live as dhimmis of Islam; who ignore the facts and serve Islam at the cost of their own national values. No wonder these servants of Islam are under the pressure of their Muslim associates and friends to blame Christians and Jews for every crisis among Muslims. Whatever happens among Muslims within Islamic lands is attributed to the West.

There is no doubt that these Muslims and their dhimmis are also trying to leave a false legacy for future Muslims, to create a picture of righteous deeds in the name of liberation, veiling the reality of the present bloodshed so prevalent in India and Spain today. The followers of Muhammad have learnt that if they can manage to cover the facts for a generation, the following generations are unlikely to question what is now being presented as ‘historical facts’. A present day example of such deception can be seen in Iran. Though all Iranians know that Arab Muslims came and slaughtered millions of their forefathers and took their wives, daughters and wealth for themselves, there is also a lie which has been driven ahead from the first day of invasion that says, ‘It was Iranians who called Arabs to come and liberate them.’ This lie is still in Iran and it has been kept by both committed Muslims and their non-Muslim dhimmis to mislead Iranians. The people of Iran will not be rid of this lie until they rid themselves of Islam and its driving forces.

It is the same with Spain and India. From 710 AD, Christians and Jews were persecuted, slaughtered and burned alive because of their objection to Islam. No only that, Muslims also passed discriminatory legislations in order to humiliate them according to the Qur’an. The Andalusian Maliki jurist, Ibn Abdun (AD.1134) followed the footsteps of his prophet Muhammad and decreed:

No…Jews or Christians may be allowed to wear the dress of an aristocrat, nor of a jurist, nor of a wealthy individual; on the contrary, they must be detested and avoided. It is forbidden to greet them with “Salam” (Peace be upon you). In effect, ‘Satan has gained possession of them, and caused them to forget Allah’s warning. They are the confederates of Satan’s party; Satan’s confederates will surely be the losers! (Referring to the Qur’an 58:20-21). A distinctive sign must be imposed upon them in order that they may be recognized and this will be for them a form of disgrace.

This is just one example among many. Christian and Jews in Spain suffered what others have been suffering in Egypt, Iraq and Iran, among others. Actually, the situation in Spain was even worse than Egypt, so much so that some non-Muslims escaped to Egypt because of the severity of humiliation in Spain.

The case of Islamic aggression towards Indians proves even more severe than Spain. Muslims in India were more blood thirsty than those in Spain. They did not spare any Hindu man they found until they dominated. Muslims in Spain based their philosophy of invasion on the humiliating decrees of the Qur’an 58:20-21. Any who revolted against this humiliation were killed. But Muslims’ philosophy of invasion over Hindus was based on the Qur’an 47:4, which orders the killing of all unbelievers until complete domination. Hajjaj, the Muslim Governor, orders (AD 712) his commander Muhammad Qasim:

The great God says in the Koran [47.4]: "0 True believers, when you encounter the unbelievers, strike off their heads." The above command of the Great God is a great command and must be respected and followed. You should not be so fond of showing mercy, as to nullify the virtue of the act. Henceforth grant pardon to no one of the enemy and spare none of them, or else all will consider you a weak-minded man."

In just a few centuries of Muslim domination, India’s civilization and prosperity suffered. India was once one of the world’s greatest civilizations with its high quality of education and scientific discoveries. However, nomadic Islamic culture soon brought this to an end.

Why would Muslims go against these historical evidences which are recorded in their own books? It is because of their god, Allah. The Qur’an says: “Allah is the best of deceivers” (3:54; 7:99; 8:30; 10:20). It is Allah who has made them fervent deceivers. Their fervency in deception is so high that they can lie despite hundreds of killing decrees recorded in the Quran, Hadiths and Muhammad’s biography, which led to hundreds of massacres throughout the Islamic history for the establishment of Islam. These massacres are even praised in schools and mosques in the Middle-East.

We do not need to go far into history in order to be able to prove the cruelty of Islam. We have today's Islamic governments of Saudi-Arabia (the heartland of Islam), Iran, Sudan and some others with their anti-Semitic and anti-Christian laws. One example of such laws is contained in the website http://www.saudiairlines.com/services/travelguide.jsp of Saudi Arabia’s Airline asks you not to carry your Bible or Cross or David’s Star with you if you travel to this country.

Why, instead of drawing from contemporary Islamic life, are these Muslims trying to draw people’s attention to centuries ago? Because they know that the majority will not take the trouble to investigate their words in depth and test their accuracy. They also know that because of Islam, not one of the contemporary Islamic countries can tolerate freedom. For this reason, they direct peoples’ attention to the past rather than to contemporary Islamic reality. Among the present Islamic countries, which one has allowed the freedom of religion to Jews and Christians and others? Even Turkey, who has been attempting to enter the European Union, has not been able to adapt itself to the values which promote reason, progress and equality in Europe. Why? Because these qualities are Christian values that are rejected by Islam. It was just last year (2007) when three Christians were beheaded in Turkey for the sake of their faith. It is interesting that in their attempt to soften the severity of this attack, the lawyers placed blame on the martyrs, accusing them of proselytizing Muslims. The Islamic domination and discrimination in Turkey have prevented its people from seeing why and how Christianity contributed to political, social, cultural and economic progress in the West. As long as they attach themselves to Islam, they will waste their God given choice for freedom with the fantasy of life in Islam. You cannot hold Islam and freedom in one heart. Islam is against freedom.

Where is the sense in all this deception? Why the necessity to cover the truth, when faced with the opportunity to embrace the Truth? A number of reasons, really: fear, loyalty, tradition, heritage, identity, and so on. While I criticize these Muslims, in the depth of my heart I cry for their closed minds and pray that they might be able to see the light of Christ and humble themselves to Him in order to be blessings to all others rather than deceiving.

Korea: A lesson Muslims need to learn

While I was a lecturer at the University of Technology in Sydney, I learned and considered many things about South Korea, one of the great economic powers of the world. I often thought that I would love to travel to this country and see it with my own eyes. By the grace of God, I was honored to finally be here in South Korea. I was amazed by the progress this country has made, especially after the war with North Korea. It has pulled itself from a very poor country into a giant industrial country with its products in all over the world. It is also environmentally clean, socially and politically democratic, spiritually humanitarian, and a God loving nation.

What is the reason for the success of South Korea? The reason this country has grown rapidly is because of its cultural and religious openness. Its friendly relationship with the Christian West, beginning with America, brought huge success to this country. Muslims need to open their eyes and learn great lessons from the South Koreans.

Muslim leaders have been saying that wherever the West has had influence, it has created nothing but exploitation and has blocked the ways of success for that society. This statement only qualifies the fact that Muslim leaders are very good at creating propaganda to keep their Quranic philosophy of Christian and Jew hatred alive amongst their contemporary Muslim followers.

There is no doubt that western colonialism carried some problems with itself to their occupied lands. However, the religions and cultures in some occupied non-Muslim lands were open to the successful values of the West and this openness led their nations to great successes. Unlike Muslim leaders, the leaders of these lands did not call their western friends or occupiers unclean, nor did they close their door to Judeo-Christian values. Rather, they opened themselves to change and, as a result, they lifted their own nations up and blessed the world with their productivity.

Many Islamic countries were also colonized, but the non-participative values of Muhammad did not allow Muslim leaders to compare their values with the values of Christianity and adopt Christian work ethics for the salvation of their nations. Muhammad’s Islam is a political religion framed in an unchangeable jihadist culture. According to Islam, Muslims and others have no choice but to become subject to the closed values of Saudi Arabia’s 7th century AD nomadic culture. The dynamism and diversity of life is rejected in Islam. If you see a little success in some Islamic countries, it is because of their little and hidden rebelliousness to Muhammad’s culture and their openness to western culture. Muhammad’s real followers kill these open Muslim rulers as soon as they discover their favor towards Judeo-Christian values.

The dynamic cultural and religious values of Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea opened the door to key success factors established in the West and they were thus able to turn their nations into very productive forces, which also proved to be a blessing to others. Muslim countries, instead, have been busily squandering away their time and energy with their problem of Jew and Christian hatred, which has caused them to fall into the category of non-productive and less developed countries. They ignore the fact that non-Islamic countries did not have Islam and had therefore freedom to learn from the West.

Islam degrades non-Muslim values and prohibits Muslims from adapting themselves or identifying in any way with non-Muslim values, especially if they could be thought of as better. The narrow mindedness, rejection and hostility of Islam will always block the ways for Muslims to learn from others, and especially from Protestant work ethics. Muhammad Mahathir, ex-Prime Minister of Malaysia, tried for many years to pull up his country and compete with Singapore and other above mentioned countries, but he was not successful because of his Jew-hatred and the bondage of his nation to Islam. He was unable to see the problem in his religion.

South Korea’s Buddhism was dynamic compared to Muhammad’s closed door Islam. South Koreans, unlike Muslim nations, used their freedom for learning from Christians’ biblical values in order to lift their country up. They learned in order to set themselves free.

We pray that, by God’s grace, Muslims will be able to see the bondage of Islam, open themselves to Judeo-Christian values and be set free through Christ.

Great Nations Fall and History Repeats Itself Again

History reveals that democratic countries collapse when they open themselves to other beliefs and philosophies. In so doing, they are unable to protect their free values against such forces.
With the expansion of the Greek and Roman Empires, the West became open to all sorts of beliefs and philosophies. People migrated to Europe and brought their cultural and religious values with them. The situation in the West became similar to what it is today. Humanism was the driving philosophy among the majority and the West lost its rational power by willingly opening its doors to mysticism. This resulted in the creation of a pantheistic god in the West.
"Everybody is right" was the widespread mantra of those ancient days. Life was measured by worldly thoughts, actions and achievements and there was no difference between good and bad. The word 'bad' was used to describe Christianity, just as it is in the West now.
Today we find every belief and philosophy in many of our contemporary society and this situation existed similarly during the Dark Ages. The mix of religion and philosophy resulted in scores of cultic and Gnostic beliefs based on individual assumptions and spiritualism. Similar to the New Age movement, this wave of philosophies gave power to the individual rather than to an absolute standard.
The church at that time declined in her reasons for faith and aligned herself with the altruistic and pluralistic beliefs of society. They ignored the Biblical text "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because thou hast rejected knowledge..." (Hos. 4:6)
The church was highly influenced by Gnosticism, the belief that positioned man spiritually equal to God. Many put their faith in man and wanted to create a world religion. Eventually, they succeeded in creating another world religion called Manicheanism. This religion was a mix of iron and clay or a mix of dictatorship and democracy. This served to shape a government whose roots were part iron and clay, as the prophet Daniel prophesied (Dan 2:41-43). Some contemporary humanists have shown similar interests in creating such a global religion.
Where did the democracy of this Dark Age take the people? The democracy of the state eventually became an instrument of power and control. How could a tolerant society eventuate in intolerance? The tolerance was not a creative tolerance. It sheltered terrorist ideologies too. The communities were initially going to live together, but they eventually perished together. So, the scene was ripe for dictatorship and therefore dictators took over. As a result, the West suffered from intolerance for centuries.
Presently, the West is trying to gird its feet with the iron of Islam and the clay of democracy. As iron and clay are incompatible, so are Islam and democracy. It's easy even for a child to understand that iron and clay don't mix. Yet, world leaders don't understand this.
Today, United Nation and nearly every government speaks well of Islam. American President Barack Obama said, "We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith which has done so much over so many centuries to shape the world for the better, including my own country (America).”
Why would the president of such a great country tell such a lie? Is America standing on its feet because of Islam or Judeo-Christian values? And, if Islam was able to contribute to the wellbeing of America, why hasn't it done the same to any of the 60 Islamic countries? Why would such a great leader praise a religion that aims at the destruction of all other cultures and religions? Because, he lacks knowledge and is committed to altruism and political correctness at the cost of his own country.
What do we need to do as Christians in the face of the above multidimensional threats?
In the Dark Ages, a faithful remnant retained Christian values with courage and sacrifice. In so doing, they've blessed this generation with Judeo-Christian values. Today we, as Christians, also need to dress ourselves with courage so that future generations will be blessed with the Truth.
We know that God is sovereign and He controls everything. But we are given a role for preparing the way for His return:
1. We need to love the lord Jesus so dearly. This love is the answer to every problem and crisis in the world. The world values worldly things more than God. For this reason, it is heading toward destruction. Our sincere love will save the life of some.
2. We need to love the world too. This love means to wake the world up to existing spiritual, social, political and moral dangers and teach people what our Savior Jesus has taught about salvation.
3. W need to teach the world a creative tolerance which is against passivity and political correctness. We believe in democracy but not in a democracy that unites with wolves and threatens future generations. Many presidents and prime ministers enjoy democracy but don't know what it is or how to protect it. We need to raise our voices and teach them.
4. We need to stand for our moral standards unashamedly and teach the present generation that moral relativism degrades mankind, just as it did in the Dark Ages.
Let us wake up and pray for the leadership of our Lord and for our sincere commitment to Him. Let us spend extra time and money for the spread of His message. Let us gather for learning and teaching. And let us take heart against passivism and political correctness in order to make the voice of Christ stronger in the world!

Freedom Verses Ignorance, Silence and Denial

The word “Freedom” is a dynamic word, which encourages people to search for the best value that brings enlightenment and leads people to just, peaceful and loving relationship. For freedom injustice, extortion and dictatorship are barriers to enlightenment. A freed person does not believe that a belief or a philosophy is able to take justice and peace to victory and establish a loving relationship with imposing itself on people. Unfortunately, many so called free people in the West are missing this simple logic and therefore are confused.
The recent centuries in the West prove that how the tyrannical regimes disappeared because of the freedom fighters. They spoke out and even put their lives in danger of cruel leaders so that their contemporary communities and the future generation could have chance for life. They knew that to establish freedom you need to be born in it and then live in and for it. Even some of them were burnt by dictators in the squares of Europe. Their oppressors tried every politic in order to extinguish the flame of freedom in hearts of these warriors, but they were unable and lost the battle. Because, many people, young and old, were able to understand that freedom was better than life. If you are not free you will have a better life. The power of logic in these men and women also flattened the mountain-like slavery in the West and amazed the whole world. These warriors of freedom would become so discouraged if they knew that their descendants would one day want to belittle the sacrifices of their forefathers and surrender themselves to the enemies of freedom.
Sadly, the Islamists have started to annihilate the free values in the West, and the West is not only quiet but has also started to deny the core values of its culture because of its ignorance first, and of fear of Islamists second. How can you protect freedom if you do not know the difference between freedom and authoritarianism, the enemy of freedom? The major problem of the West is its lack of understanding the doctrine of its enemies. Those who do not know or are not interested in knowing the doctrine of their enemies, they will not be able to protect their families, lands and values.
Qur’an declares that the religion of Allah must triumph over all and the values of non-Muslims are against the faith of Allah. Islamists walk in the streets of England and proclaim “Freedom Belongs to Hell”. In America they raise their voices in the streets, breaching the democracy and saying that “Islam will bring you down and dominate soon”. Despite all these clear evidences, the West is unbelievably indifferent towards the protection of it societies. If we do not protect our societies from the spread and invasion of Islam, do we believe that Islamists will spare our civilization? Didn’t they kill millions of middle-eastern non-Muslims and burnt their books and libraries and demolished their civilizations throughout the history? Is there any freedom in any sixty or so Islamic countries now?
Mohammed believed that no one had right to speak above his words (Q.33:36; 8:12-13), do you believe that his followers would chase a western direction other than his? Do you believe that a branch cuts its own root? Islamists have learned from their history that they always rule if the society is kept in ignorance. They have also learned from the Qur’an that terrorism (Q.8:59) creates fear; fear creates ignorance and silence; and the silence leads to denial. They are certain that if the West goes like this, they will dominate.
The doctrine of Islam is profoundly foreign to the westerners. Even the leaders in the West welcome Islam to their societies more than their followers. They have lost their sight of the unique values of Judeo-Christian values. Islam, therefore, is called by them “a religion of peace”. These people are called the head and brains of the West.
How many of these leaders in the West know how Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Turkey, Iran, Syria, Jordan and Palestine and others became Islamic? How many of them know that the Qur’an states that “Muslims are better than others (Q.3:110)”, and all others have to be subject to Muslims (Q.9)? Pluralism and political correctness have blinded many. The only thing they have memorized is that no one has right to criticize the hate spreading Islam and Muslims. I am amazed of how these leaders call themselves the forerunners of leadership in the universe, but keep themselves quiet to what are done to non-Muslims in Saudi Arabia, Iran and other Islamic countries. Don’t they feel embarrassed in their relationship with Saudi Arabia where the least human right is ignored? How do they clearly ignore the international and global reciprocity? How do they expect to be good in their relationship with Saudi Arabia and expect nothing back? Why don’t they want to be treated fairly by Islamic countries? Why do they want to be friend with someone who manipulates them and takes advantage of them? Does a free person keep quiet against authoritarianism and injustice? Haven’t they learned any lesson from freedom in order to be able to teach the cruel Islamic countries? This is what Islam desires; the infidels do not have rights to speak above Muslims and stand for their rights.
O God, wake the West up; remove the dark veil over the minds of leaders in the West so that they understand that they have been brought up to such positions in order to love their nations more than their positions and incomes and protect them from freedom hunters. O Heavenly Father, raise many who love to live for freedom and are ready to sacrifice for it.

Hand in Hand with the Inhumane Dictators of the Middle-East

People are not allowed to practice their rights in Islamic countries. Our forefathers and generations lived in Iran for thousands of years. They thought us to be proud of our country, land and national values. The dependency on the life principles of Cyrus and Darius the Greats was so high that even the cruelest leaders in Iranian did not dare to demolish them perfectly from the lives of Iranians. Iranians kept them in their hearts and released them anytime they found a slight freedom. This is the reason that we are still able to see some of the ancient values in Iran now. Based of these values, Iran (Persia) became one of the great centre of science and education in the world, now destroyed by the Islamic Army. Iran was the most difficult country for Arabs to penetrate. Even after the invasion of the Saudi Arabian Islamic Army to Iran, Iranians’ pro-right and democratic stand made it so difficult for them to have an easy occupation over the land. It took about fifteen years for Islam’s Army to occupy Iran, and it took centuries for them to make Islam the formal religion of Iran.

Saudi Arabian occupied the south-western part of Iran and kept it in their hands with all their strength in order to use a different tactic, cultural jihad, for the other parts of the land. Their fear was that Iranians were democratic and wouldn’t accept the Islamic rule that called Iranians inferiors and animals, and degraded ladies. Their prophet, Muhammad, commented harshly against the rights of women in Iran:

When Muhammad heard the news that the people of the Persia had made the daughter of Khosrau their Queen (ruler), he said, “Never will succeed such a nation as makes a woman their ruler.“ (Bukhari: Volume 9: Book 88: Hadith 219).

So, Arabs knew that they needed to use their tongues as sword rather than the sword itself. This is called Taqiya in Arabic which means “Holy Deception”. It is a cultural jihad. They started to use it and rewarded the traitors hugely, who believed their lies. The last warrior of Iran was Babak Khorramdin who gave his eyes and hands to the Islamic commander rather than accepting their lies and bribes. Babak was a Zoroastrian, not a Muslim. Today, majority of even Muslim Iranians remember him with pride. And while I was writing this article I was sobbing because of his brave and loving stand for protecting freedom and his country. I know the bitter history of Islam. This is one reason among others that encourages me to waste my arms and eyes to the committed Muslims, if necessary, rather than wasting my and my children’s freedom. Sometimes, I was advised by my friends and family members (who no doubt care for me) that I had to be careful or take it easy so that committed Muslims wouldn’t cause a big problem for me. My Savior Jesus is my witness that these apparently encouraging words broke my heart and were not able to reduce my courage in the Lord for protecting freedom. It is an honor for me to live for freedom, and if that costs my life, it is still an honor for me to offer my life as a little gift for the freedom the Great Master of life, Jesus has offered to the world.

I am a citizen of the democratic world. But our leaders in the democratic world are hand-in-hand with the inhumane dictators of the Middle-East, including the leaders in Saudi Arabia the heartland of Holy Deception (Taqiya). In addition to this, our politicians have also allowed the deceptions of Islam to permeate our political, social, educational, legal and financial systems in many areas, paving the ground for the occupation of Islam. Sad to say that many politicians in the contemporary democratic societies, unlike Babak, love their hands and eyes more than their countries, nations and future generations. If this was all, it still wouldn’t bother me that much. They even love Muslims’ money and oil more than their nations. The pain is even more than this. Even Christians are complacent and quiet. Many mega evangelical Christians have chosen to stay quiet against the subtle invasion of Islam. Some even have collapsed into compromise with Islam, accepting Muhammad as a prophet of real God. Some prominent contemporary evangelical leaders give the church pulpit to the Muslim imams in order to praise Allah in the Sunday morning services. No wonder why our Lord was crying blood in the Garden of Gethsemane. Was He also saying to the Father, “My church will also betray me”?

There are millions of Iranians who have escaped from the blood thirsty rulers of Islamic Republic of Iran and live in the western countries. Only a few of us became curious and thereby started to search the reasons for the presence of democracy in the West and the lack of democracy in the Middle-East. Majority others have chosen to stay quiet and benefit only from freedom without any contribution to its protection. Alas, the westerners were not a good example to them in this. They learned that if westerners do not care for their own history and culture, if they have put money and success at the bottom line of their life only, why others should care for their country? Westerners are losing their self-confidence and thereby are losing their own loyalties too. They have no respect for their own culture. Leftist and humanists want to destroy their culture in the West, and others are also afraid to stand for it because of political correctness.

In democracy, people establish a justice system that values and protects human life, obligates individuals to respect rights, prepares them to work in the best interest of communities. People also establish a government that is able to protect their rights nationally and internationally, especially in this era of intercultural clashes. Is this what we see in the West? No. Political correctness has crippled the West to adequately freedom and rights of its citizens.

Sadly, the economic pressures and the overriding focus on wealth in the West have made the democratic life and practices so fragile and conditional today. The leading forces of democracy are not the core values of democracy anymore, but the multicultural forces, including the culture of Islam. Under the umbrella of multiculturalism, even the authoritarian leaders are able to convince the egalitarians that authoritarianism is good enough to protect freedom. Wow! We have ideologists, politicians and citizens who believe this.

The dependency of the western countries on oil has caused the western politicians to tolerate the authoritarian leadership of the Middle-East at the cost of democratic values. The evidences prove that it was the participative leadership approach in Judeo-Christian belief that brought multidimensional successes to the West and draw the attentions of the world. Every country in the world that ignored the Protestant Work Ethic created an obstacle to the progress of its own economy. Those countries that opened themselves to the western values became economic powers in the world. Even Mao the great communist was not able to lead his nation with the principles of communism but started to plagiarize western work ethic in the name of communism and therefore led China to this stage, which is a communist country apparently but an authoritarian capitalist in flavor.

So, the West has become num. While people in the dictatorship Islamic countries have started to yearn for democracy and are trying sacrificially to prove that no religion or culture must limit the scope of democracy, many westerners are rather keeping quiet, sacrificing their democratic values to the interests of dictators such as Saudi Arabians. There are thousands of Iranian activists in Iran who do not give up fighting against the dictatorship of Islam, but Gordon Brown, English PM, rather wants to make his country the hub of Islamic economy.

What will happen if we do not wake up our communities to these dangerous games? What will happen if Saudi Arabians and their running forces in the western communities such as CAIR, Muslim Brotherhood who want to occupy in the West? It is obvious from the history of Islam that with the accumulation of power Muslims will impose themselves on those who lack power. For this reason, committed Muslim immigrants see the assimilation unnecessary in the western societies and have started to establish their own ghettos (kingdoms) in the West in order to fulfill the desires of their rich Islamic masters such as Saudi Arabia. The goal of these Islamic authorities is to erase every non-Islamic thing from every land in the world. They will disappoint the non-Muslims to feel inadequate in protecting their values, favor the changes for the benefit of Islam and eventually surrender to the religious Muslims who had planned to take over. This will be the result of westerner’s tolerance to Islam.

The following are some of Islam’s tips to the world:

1. Islam does not respect the freedom of speech and other beliefs and religions.
2. Islam is not open to freedom and any criticism.
3. Muslims take delight in free countries for spreading Islam, but never allow other religions’ followers to do the same in Islamic countries.
4. They never invest for the development of a warm and wider understanding among diverse nations in order to remove the barriers to unity with others.
5. They never want to learn and have a deeper understanding of other values in order to encourage their fellow believers for the best.
6. They never encourage their people to refer to their own God given capability and search for the best possible values in the world and choose the best with a free will.
7. They ignore that the truth cannot be discovered by blindly following or obeying the guidance of someone who has never been open to comparison and has never allowed others to do it.
8. They never want to meet the criteria for truthfulness and become good examples for their own nations

Some Muslims governments have suppressed Muslim fundamentalism in their countries for a few reasons, but because they themselves do not have the above qualities, fundamentalism therefore has made its root stronger amongst the masses.

It is urgent for us not only to rescue our societies from the influence of these cruel people, but also to establish our rights in their countries if they want to continue their relationships with us according to the principles of democracy. As the western countries are not only for non-Muslims to live, practice their beliefs, build their religious building, the Islamic countries are also not for Muslims only. All non-Muslims must have equal rights with Muslims to practice their religion in Islamic countries, build their churches and temples, and spread their religions in these countries. Saudi Arabia must open its door for other religions’ evangelism since its Embassies in the non-Islamic countries have become the centers for Islamic Mission.

Why would a victorious community lock itself in the church?

Jesus said, “Take heart! I have overcome the world” (Jn.16:33c). The reason He revealed Himself was to destroy the devil’s work (1Jn.3:8b), lead justice to victory and provide triumph for His Church so that the nations might hear the good news of His victory and thereby put their trust in Him (Matt.12:20-21). He overcame the prince of darkness so that His followers to look at Satan as a conquered enemy and walk in the world as conquerors (Rom.8:37) and win the hearts of people for Him.

Based on this philosophy, the Bible proclaims that:

1. Jesus is the Lord of lords, King of kings (Rev.17:14; 19:16).
2. He is the only One to save the world (Acts 4:12).

Sadly, this is not what many churches and Christian organizations in the world believe and act accordingly. Some are afraid that their supporters may cease their financial supports of them. Some others are afraid to proclaim the victory in the Name of Jesus Christ because this will be called intolerance or ignorance in a pluralistic society. Some others have even gone further and embraced the values of other beliefs and philosophies as equal to the values of Christ without realizing the fact that there cannot be many bests. The best is the only one, unique and superior among all others. If we do not believe this, we will lead our communities into ignorance, irrationalism and chaos.

For the above reasons, many churches do not want us to create awareness in their countries. So far, there have been churches who canceled our visits, and some others even tried to stop us in the middle of our talks in their churches, simply because they were afraid of the threats of some committed Muslims or humanists or communists, etc. Is this what the church is expected to do when the enemy aims to silence the followers of Christ? Is this called “Carrying the Cross of Christ?” Is this what Paul said, “For Christ’s sake I have lost everything”?

No wonder why the most Holy, Just and Loving One is presented as the ugliest one in the universities and intellectual institutions in the West. No wonder why the democratic countries have become the open doors for the most terrorizing ideologies. No wonder why the temples (and hearts) of even some Christian leaders and politicians have become the market places of smugglers of peace. Even the most superpower president of the world, George Bush, is trying to divide Jerusalem and enthrone Muhammad there. This the Muhammad who calls Jews and Christians, including George Bush, dog, pig, monkey, donkey and worst of creatures who belong to the fire of hell. These would not happen if the churches were faithful to Christ.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, by the grace of our Lord Jesus we are ready to carry His Cross in such critical moments? We love to speak and live for the glory of the One who endured the cruel Cross in order to establish the justice in the world? We love to pursue His victory rather than surrendering to the enemy of mankind. We love to live for Him and if necessary to die for Him.

We want you to know that your prayers and supports will encourage us more for standing this battle against the stronghold of evil. We praise His Name who has established us on the victorious ground and we are able to speak and live for Him.

Evolution, Random Leadership and Politicians Devoid of Political Philosophy

So far, we have studied authoritarian, paternalistic and participative leadership styles. The rise of Evolutionary and New Age world views has now formed a fourth leadership style: Random Leadership.

Random leadership is missing from the pages of university books, even though it is widely practiced by many contemporary politicians in power today. The participative (democratic) leadership style is taught as the most effective and fruitful western leadership style in universities. In practice, however, it is incompatible with the arbitrary evolutionary theories of many professors.  These theories favour a random philosophy of leadership which is incompatible with managed negotiations or sharing of views.

Random leadership has not yet opened a wide space in the minds of ordinary people. For this reason, politicians do not speak about it before elections. During elections, they prepare their speeches based on participative leadership values and a promising future. Once elected, they stick to their accidental leadership theory, leaving no room for the people to contribute meaningfully to the future of their country.

The American presidency has never seen such an uninformed and illogical leader as Barack Obama. His pre-election speeches were very charismatic and steeped in participative values. Such values promised change would occur from and by the people. Now, however, he chases nihilistic ideas that have take people to a dead end.

Another example, Great Britain's Prime Minister Gordon Brown, criticized Tony Blair for his capricious ministry. Yet, Brown is himself the most capricious leader Great Britain has even seen. His actions are random, leading the nation into an non-democratic stage.

Politicians speak about a future, but this is a formless future which they themselves do not know and trust. This is because it is hard for the children of evolutionary theory to align themselves with democratic values and live according to set standards. Furthermore, evolutionary theory has ordained for them to cunningly open up opportunities for them in democratic societies and win people’s support until they get to power, such action ultimately leading to the destruction of democracy. All the while they believe, "the end justifies the means."

The children of evolution do not need to study political philosophies. Not seeking the best, they believe instead that everything happens by accident and is therefore good. Bloodshed or communism:  all is just is an accident, not according to any plan. If Islamists take over, what will be will be. After that they could also accidentally disappear or perhaps stay around.

Such politicians believe society is headed toward an unpredictable future, one in which no sovereign reality is at work. So, the evolutionary ideology has done its job. Nothingness has become the standard and the crown of the future. God is meaningless, people are the product of a material world, and all life, including politics, is random. History and the historical experiences carry no more value since they are the preliminary products of randomness, utterly irrelevant to the future.

Today, our bloodthirsty enemy is free to undermine our values due to the illogicality of many of our country's leaders. Islamists have been using their own random philosophy as a bridge of penetration into our societies for the establishment of their hostile and authoritarian Sharia philosophy that categorizes non-Muslims as worst of beasts and unclean (Q.7:175-177; 2:65; 5:60; 62:5) while Muslims the best of people, evolved for mankind (Q.3:110).

Do our leaders know anything about Islam's political philosophy? Do they care to understand this philosophy? Do they care whether or not Islam is compatible with democratic values? Not really. Because in the random, evolutionary leadership style, knowledge of good and bad does not matter. Everything must be welcomed, especially if it has more power to survive.

This is the brain of many of our contemporary politicians. They are poisonous to our society, education and our future. Yet, they have occupied the most important positions in our societies. The evolutionists have done what they had hoped to do. They rule over us! It is shocking to behold.

Is there any chance for our civilization and values to survive and be revived in the face of these political leaders? The solution is in the hand of God’s people. See what the Bible says:
If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land (2 Chr.7:14).

Committed Muslims Never Rest Until They Occupy and Destroy

Muhammad, the Prophet of Islam, never rested in his commitment for Islam. He invaded day and night until all nationalities and people groups in Saudi Arabia were made subject to the Islamic law. On his death bed, as he drew his final breaths, he said to his followers that two religions cannot exist in Saudi Arabia.  This was in spite of the fact that the Quran says in chapter 9 that Jews and Christians can practice their religions under the rule of Islam if they pay yearly life tax to Muslims in order to be spared of Islam's sword.

Muhammad's hatred was so high that caused him to ignore his own holy scripture. He made this proclamation because there were still some Jews who were giving 50% of their produce to Muslims in exchange for their lives and practicing their religion. This hatred has remained Muhammad's legacy to his successors and followers since his death until this day. Today, when it comes to non-Muslims, committed Muslims follow in the footsteps of Muhammad and break their vows and treaties with or concerning non-Muslims. Muslims will even pretend to deny their beliefs, if conditions necessitate, in order to infiltrate the lives of non-Muslims. This strategy serves to establish roots in the areas they have designated for future occupation or destruction.

Muslims are also obliged to use all of their wealth for the destruction of others. Imagine this, that at the present time, in a few Islamic countries where poverty is a serious problem, some Muslim leaders have willingly committed millions of dollars as a bounty for the heads of those who aim to open the eyes of Muslims to the deceptions of Islam. Recently, an Egyptian Orthodox priest, Zakaria Boutros, had 60 million dollars put on his head by extremist Muslims in Iran and Saudi Arabia, simply because he was challenging Muslims to compare their Quran with the Bible. With such large sums of money, Muslims could instead build houses for many of their fellow Muslims who are poor.  They could also provide working opportunities for them.

But this is not the heart of Islam. Islam does not care about the well being of its followers since its overriding focus is to destroy those who speak above the words of the Quran and Muhammad.
There are 146 references to Hell in the Qur’an: 94% of these references are for those who criticize Muhammad or do not follow him. Only 6% of passages say that hell is reserved for punishing immorality or lawlessness. In other words, almost the whole mission of Islam is to silence critics. The Quran says:

It is not for a believer, man or woman, when a matter has been decided by Allah and his apostle to have any option about their decision: If any one disobeys Allah and his apostle, he is indeed on a clearly wrong path (Q.33:36).

Those who resist Allah and His Apostle will be among those most humiliated. Allah has decreed: "It is I and My apostles who must prevail": For Allah is One full of strength, able to enforce His Will (Q.58:20-21).

Allah has sent his apostle with a religion of the truth, that he may make it victorious over every other religion (Q.9:33).

So what matters for the committed Muslims is not to care first for their fellow hungry Muslims, or to fight poverty, but to deploy soldiers for Islam to invade others' rights, demolish their values and impose Islam on all people. The predominant goal of Islam has united committed Muslims globally for destruction.

It is so sad that many of these committed Muslims have achieved great successes in  democratic countries. We have seen personally, and have also heard and read from various sources that many committed Muslims have been able, as a result of their wealth and success, to penetrate powerful organizations in the West.  They have used their position for the advancement of Islam, and in some cases for the support of terrorist organizations. Though some of these have been caught and put in prison,  the threat of imprisonment can not stop their associates and followers from continuing to plan and execute evil activities. We are witnesses that the numbers of dangerous Muslims are increasing year after year, and if they are ready to die for Islam, the threat of imprisonment will not be sufficient to frighten them or deter them in their dangerous ambitions.

The great contributions and rewards of their Middle-Eastern oil masters has also opened doors which were otherwise impassible to them, and by this means they are able to do everything that is necessary to advance Islam. This is a worthy reminder that the indifference of many Western leaders and communities towards committed Muslims has also increased the scope of their activities. As a result of indifference, this apparent minority of committed Muslims have been able to silence their critics in some Western countries by preventing their eyes from alighting on books in bookstores or universities. Some have even won the interests of politicians and are working diligently to have Western laws changed to favor Islam, so as to put an end to all criticism about Islam. These committed Muslim have put  their minds and hearts to work in a way which is moving Islam very quickly toward its goal of establishing itself and its laws in the West.  Westerners should know now that Islam will not tolerate criticism of any sort and will deal harshly, even violently, with all of its critics, even in the West where a false sense of security prevails.

Committed Muslims are impatient for the passing of laws that will suppress all talk about the realities of Islam. From time to time, I hear from my host churches or newspaper editors that imams of the local mosques have called them in order to convince them to cancel my meetings. The imams have accused them of promoting hatred toward Muslims by giving their pulpits to me or writing about my transformed life.

In some cases, these committed Muslims have attended the meetings in order to disturb me or intimidate me. They blame Christians for promoting hatred but our Gospel says, Hate is evil (Rom.12:9); Bless those who persecute you, bless do not curse (v.14). Their own Quran is full of hating and killing verses, yet they blame Christians who believe that hate is sin. Why do they blame Christians for hatred if our Master, Jesus, has condemned hatred as sin? They are doing this for the sake of confusing people and also to create chaos and fear. Their mission is to deceive (called Pious Deception – taqiya – in Islam) and to confuse, terrify, occupy and destroy.

We should not be afraid. If we are afraid, then those who choose fear as their weapon will succeed. We have to be afraid of God only, who is the one to whom we are accountable. We need to expose Islam courageously and open the eyes of people to the threats of Islam. Our God loved the nations and gave a great price for their freedom and salvation. We, as His followers, also need to pay the price for freedom and overcome fear.

Are the Custodians of Freedom Abandoning Their Posts?

“May Allah bless Hitler!” is now the mantra for the committed Muslims living in European countries. This is not an attitude that is just now quietly making its way to the surface of mainstream Euro-culture:  it is shouted in the streets. The democratic greatness of Europe, and I daresay America, is about to pass away and Satan is everywhere, blinding people with ignorance and corruption, and eagerly preparing the way for the rise of another type of Adolph Hitler, except this time it will be Islamic forces oppressing the masses. Anti-Semitism is only the beginning of the perfect ungodliness that we will see in the near future, and it will not remain within the confines of Europe but will spread rapidly to the U.S. and others. As godless men continue to peddle their man-centered philosophies instead of tending to their souls, societies are spiraling aimlessly into chaotic oblivion. The time is ripe for Islam to take over the West.

Islamic extremists are now freely carrying their banners through the streets of Europe. They read “Freedom, Go to Hell” or “Jews Wait, the Gas Chambers are coming.” Because godless men have convinced themselves that there is no distinction between right and wrong, that these concepts are subjective based on whatever reality an individual chooses to abide in, those who do seek righteousness will find themselves in dire straits if they are merely following a moral code instead of following hard after the Righteous and Holy God (not Allah!). The stage is set for Islam to dominate through the use of Taqiya, or Holy Deception, used since the beginnings of Islam specifically for the purpose of deceiving entire nations into believing that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance or has the solution for everything. However, it seems as though European leaders, the guardians of their nations' freedoms and human rights, have chosen to ignore the reality of the cultural terrorism that is taking place right before their eyes and are even welcoming Islam with open arms: Taqiya is at work while Europe sleeps.

Poor economic policies are also enslaving the West to the petrol lords, who also happen to be Muslim extremists.  The West, without even realizing it, is gradually handing over its freedom to those who are ready and able to destroy it. The West still enjoys the freedom to follow  Judeo-Christian values without persecution but the days are coming quickly when we may have to hide to worship, or die, as is the case in many more places than we realize. I suspect, too, that Europe will cave-in very quickly to pressure from Muslim leaders to suppress Christian rights. It’s happening now! We must not cease in our prayers.

The followers of the Ayatollah Khomeini were no more than 2% of all of the secular Iran’s citizens, but they were able to destroy the Kingdom of the Shah, the most powerful government in the Middle-East, because the tools of deception were strong in the hands of that 2%. The power of this political deception, Taqiya, is astonishing. It seems to take on a life of its own, swallowing up everything in its path: even Jimmy Carter, the president of the most powerful nation on Earth, wound up as a dhimmi, or a second class human fellow, to the Ayatollah Khomeini, thinking that if he supported Islam he would strengthen Islam against the spread of Communism. But the followers of Russian Communism united with the Ayatollah Khomeini anyway, even though Communism is anti-religion: they knew that if they stirred up the Ayatollah against the U.S., they would have a perfect weapon against both America and Christianity. To the complete shock, embarrassment and shame of then President Jimmy Carter, the Ayatollah Khomeini, with the help of Russian Communist supporters, captured the U.S. Embassy in Tehran very shortly after his U.S.-aided victory in Iran. Leftists know that even a tyrant like Joseph Stalin was not able to destroy Christianity, but fundamentalist Muslims were able to destroy it and take control in Egypt, Iraq, Syria and other Middle Eastern countries.

Westerners are unable to grasp the reality of what is happening in Europe now.  They do not understand the seriousness of the threat of Islam to all non Muslims. Many Jews have been able to understand it clearly but their voices are being ignored.  Also, because Islam’s hatred seems to be focused primarily on Christians and Jews, non-religious individuals think that Islam’s gas chambers will stop working when all  the Christians and Jews have been exterminated. Not so!  Not if there are still any living, breathing unclean non-Muslims left to contaminate the world. Even though it seems that many Jews are now fleeing  openly anti-Semitic Europe, committed Muslims are still shouting for the establishment of gas chambers in the West, because Islam’s hostility is not only against Zion. Europeans think that Islamic Fundamentalists will be friendly and peaceful once all the Jews are dead, but they do not know that the destruction of Israel is merely an prologue to the destruction of the West. Unfortunately, many ignorant church leaders have also opened the door for Muslim leaders through interfaith dialogue, and by handing over the pulpit of their churches to them. Yet these Muslim leaders are not interested in interfaith dialogue: their goal is the death of Christianity (Praise God that this is not a realistic goal!) and the establishment of Islam.

Though many Westerners call themselves Christians, their reality is founded on principles of Materialism, Humanism, New Age philosophies and a form of Altruism that has little, if anything, to do with serving anything but their egocentrism. Activism in its various forms has also become a god to men, and we see how these idolaters speak in favor of democracy, but they have become terrorists of sorts, inciting violence and persecution as they poison society by calling Christians “racists” or “extremists”. Terrorist ideologies will inevitably lead to physical acts of terrorism. Some of my Christian friends have received terrifying threats from evolutionists, environmentalists and Greens, and recently, animal rights activists attempted to burn the home and business of a Dutch Christian while he and his family were sleeping, but praise God that He miraculously intervened to save the family and the business from fire. It is these Christ-haters (many who even dare call themselves Christians) who are ripe to seek an alliance with Islam but, in fact, they will inevitably find that they themselves have become Islam’s prey.

England has also opened its doors wide to committed Muslims and now has more problems with Islamic Extremist issues than other Western countries. Even the Prime Minister of England, Gordon Brown, is now acting like a second class citizen (a “dhimmi”) of Islam, sacrificing his freedom to a very small Islamic minority because of his perceived need for their votes and for the money of the petrol lords. Ironically, England was once a ruling force in Saudi Arabia, but Shari’a courts are quickly becoming the ruling establishment in England due to the pressure of the minority of committed Muslims who do not account for more than a few percent of it citizens!  Shari’a courts now are officially part of the English legal system and are fighting to establish a full Islamic judiciary system where every non-Muslim will suddenly come under pressure to convert to Islam; to refuse conversion is to submit to humiliation or death (Q9:5, 28-30).The Prime Minister of England has been fooled by the Muslim minority:  the British people  trusted a man and made him the protector of their country but he unwittingly became their worst enemy, forfeiting the democratic values of their society to the cruel authoritarianism of Islam.

Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against the LORD and against His Anointed One. “Let us break their chains,” they say, “and throw off their fetters.” The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. Then He rebukes them in His anger and terrifies them in His wrath, saying, “I have installed my King on Zion, my holy hill.” I will proclaim the decree of the LORD: He said to me, “You are my Son; today I have become your Father. Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession. You will rule them with an iron scepter; you will dash them to pieces like pottery.” Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry and you be destroyed in your way, for His wrath can flare up in a moment. Blessed are all who take refuge in Him. (Psalm 2 NIV)

Islam Forbids Reasoning and the Freedom of Choice

The verses of the Quran and the life of Muhammad give prominence to the fact that Islam is against civilization in the context of human development and enlightenment, and is fully intolerant of any rational thinking and reasoning, especially that which draws individuals away from Islam:

  • Allah and his prophet cannot ever be questioned for his acts, but people will not only be questioned for theirs thoughts, words and actions, punishment is brutal and immediate (Q.21.23).
  • It is not for a believer, man or woman, when a matter has been decided by Allah and his apostle, to choose another option: If anyone disobeys Allah and his apostle, he is indeed on the wrong path, and the consequences are dreadful, painful, and imminent (Q.33:36).
  • Allah will cast a dread into the hearts of the infidels. He will strike off their finger-tips and heads. This, because they have opposed Allah and his apostle … (Q.8:12-13).

Muhammad suppressed individuality and forbade people to make moral decisions based on their own choices and consciences. In Islam, people do not have the right to use their God-given freedom and conscience to evaluate and choose their desired beliefs, or to plan for their own physical and spiritual life. Compare the above Quranic verses with what the Gospel of Christ speaks:

  •  …by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God (2Cor.4:2).

Muhammad called his religion the most perfect religion in the world and himself the “Seal of Messengers” who came to perfect the imperfect works of Christ and others. Is he right? Does his teaching really lead people to perfection and freedom? Did he want his followers to use their brains, hearts and consciences in order to understand perfection and freedom in the context of the world and in comparison with other beliefs and values? Did he respect the rights of his followers and others? Did he commend his Quran to people’s consciences rather than imposing it on them?

To respond to these questions, we have no choice but to use Muhammad's own life stories, his own comments on various issues of life as examples and rely on the verses of his Quran. As Jesus said, "By their fruits you will recognize them" (Matt.7:16). Muhammad must also be known by his own fruits. His words and deeds, and the teaching of his Quran prove that no one has the right to speak above his words. Whatever he and his Islam dictate, all others must obey no matter how much better the lifestyles and values of others might be. For this reason, the history of Islam, Muhammad’s legacy, is nothing but fighting against non-Muslims and the degrading of their cultural values and worldviews. Wherever Islam has gone, it has replaced the freedom of choice in relationships and responsibilities with violent authoritarianism and the cruel non-negotiable decrees of Muhammad. For example, Muhammad, although human, has declared for himself more rights than his followers, and if anyone stands to criticize him, they must be killed. In the same way, Muslims have more rights than non-Muslims; Muslim men have more rights than Muslim women, and so on. With all of these discriminating codes, Muhammad still exalted himself, claimed that his religion was a shelter for humanity, and stated that his followers are better than others.

Can Muhammad be called tolerant since he not only rejected individual’s rights to make decisions, he also forced them to choose Islam through the use of fear and violence? Clearly, for any rational mind, the answer is obvious. Islam's past history and the current restrictions in all Islamic countries concerning non-Islamic practices prove that Islam is against the civilization, or enlightenment, of man. Can a Hindu or a Buddhist or a Christian practice his religion freely and fully in any Islamic country? Certainly not, because their prophet Muhammad said, "I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah's Apostle " (Volume 1, Book 2, Number 24). Is there any Islamic country, either secular or radical, that allows the evangelism of other religions? Of course not. Why is Saudi Arabia free to build mosques in Western countries but Westerners are not allowed to build their churches or temples in Saudi Arabia? Because Islam is an oppressive religion and its prophet is a dictator: In a dictatorship, only the dictator is free to do whatever he likes. That is why, no matter how tolerant others may be toward Islam and Muslims, Islam still aims to utterly destroy them simply because they are not Muslims. You will not survive under the rule of Islam unless you decide to align yourself with the instruction of Muhammad and Allah. You will lose your head if your decisions conflict with the teachings of Muhammad.

As a former Muslim, having been wonderfully and graciously saved by Jesus Christ, it makes my heart exceedingly heavy to report that more than a billion Muslims around the world are bound to the dictatorship of Islam and will never be allowed to make a different choice. People are born under the dictatorship of Islam and are trained to keep quiet, never raising any questions about Islam for the sake of Islam.

We need to help Muslims listen to the voices of their consciences in order to set them free from the chains of Islam. Muslims need to understand that the Living God takes delight in both men and women who make moral choices based on decisions that proceed from a love for God. We also need to help non-Islamic countries understand the hostility of Islam towards freedom of choice and basic human rights.

Please continue with me in prayer for the souls of Muslims.
