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.

Why is Islam growing in many non-Islamic countries?

Islam is growing in many non-Islamic countries despite its use of intimidation towards Christians and Jews, and against democracy. Why?

Why are mosques, Islamic schools and colleges springing up in every corner of non-Islamic countries, indoctrinating thousands of young people, when it is illegal for non-Muslims to build their sanctuaries and schools in Islamic countries?

What drives some Muslims in western countries to try to stop criticism of Islam, while they themselves practice their Islamic hate speech, and promote death threats and honor killings in these same democratic countries?

Why do Muslims dare to ask for the establishment of their own Islamic judiciary systems, ignoring the egalitarian values in the democratic countries?

Why is Muhammad’s philosophy of the sword spreading in the majority of Christian countries, whereas Jesus’ anti-sword teachings are forbidden in Islamic countries? What is giving freedom to Muslims who attempt to erode freedom of speech and the social fabric of western societies?

Why do Western nations now have their own home-grown Muslim terrorists who have been carrying out  terror operations in the West and abroad in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Kenya, Tanzania, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Israel, Morocco and Russia?

Despite all the obvious Islamic intimidation against Jews and Christians, why would many non-Muslims, including some so-called evangelical Christians, believe the Islamic lie that the root of all problems in the Middle-East is the Jews?

Why, when Western Governments moved to liberate Afghanis, Kosovo Albanians, Palestinians and Iraqis, were they betrayed by so-called Muslim friends who went on to advance the cause of the jihadists?

Why are leaders in non-Islamic countries turning a blind eye to Islamic conspiracy? Why is there silence within political, media and various other circles in non-Islamic societies? Why are free people prepared to surrender without a fight to those who would place them in bondage?

Why are these things taking place in non-Islamic countries? Is it because of ignorance of Islam’s intimidation, or surrender to Islam for the sake of political correctness, or personal interests? Whichever may be the case, the truth is being sacrificed, leading nations and countries into enslavement.

How do we respond when an enemy not only challenges our democratic values, but also forces us to surrender to his bondage? What must we do, since 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 have contempt for and erode the  values of non-Muslims?

To stand against Islamic intimidation, we need to put our victory in Christ into practice. We are called to have courage in the absolute victory and love of Christ in order to overcome the threats to freedom (Jn.16:33). We need to remember that we belong to the One who is the King of kings and the Lord of lords (Rev.19:16), and to stand in Him. Therefore, we have been given the power to speak the Truth of Christ and reveal God’s purpose for deliverance against the stronghold of Satan.

“If you keep quiet at a time like this, deliverance for (your nation) the Jews will arise from some other place, but you and your relatives will die. What's more, who can say but that you have been elevated to the palace for just such a time as this?" (Esther 4:14; read Isa.62:1; Am.5:13)
