The film American Sniper…which smashed box office history…covered the life and legacy of US Navy SEAL, Chris Kyle. A man (whose boots his detractors couldn’t shine) that deserves our utmost respect and honor.
But this flick did much more than honor Chris…it focused on the men who have our backs, against an Islamic enemy now run amok over free people…
These are the highly skilled marksmen that are more concerned with how many lives they SAVE, than the few they take. They don’t just target enemies, they also target supplies/equipment our enemies use to murder our troops.
So, how does this concern the average American? They are the wall of protection between freedom and tyrannical ideologies like Islam…
Our current totalitarian enemies, not only on the battlefield but on our very shores, are the followers of Islam. Whether followed completely or not, their system calls for:
— Inequality in governmental rule over citizens. Former Muslim and friend of my show, Noni Darwish said:
This [Islam] is not religion. It has nothing to do with religion. Religion is a relationship with God. … Islam is a relationship with the State. Islam is a one-party, totalitarian system. It’s a one-party State that will not allow you to speak. And it will kill anybody who challenges or questions.
— No equality for non-Muslims. No equality for women. (Quran 9:29; 18:26)
— There are 109 verses in the Quran that call for cruel and unusual punishments to non-Muslims.
— The only freedom in Islam is the freedom to accept Islam. (Quran 4:89)
— There is no freedom of religion under Sharia Islamic Law. (Quran 9:29)
This is just skimming the surface of what this ideology has in store for free people in the West.
Our champions, who voluntarily guard our freedoms, focus…with pinpoint accuracy…on the destruction of the enemies of freedom. The uncomplicated progression of protection is:
— Our military snipers target those targeting our troops.
— Our troops are alive and free to destroy the enemy and strike fear into their hearts of ever again attacking our homeland/people.
— Hence, millions of innocent lives are saved as a result of the American sniper’s actions.
Simple…yes, to comprehend. But arduously sacrificial on the part of our Military members (and their families). And since the Arab/Muslim mindset is only deterred in their violence by Military strength…the fear of being whacked by our Military is enough to keep us safe for another day.
So, as we continue to stand as watchmen on the wall of freedom…warning of the peril in political systems (cloaked in religion) like Islam: Let us NEVER lose sight of the Brave in our Armed Forces who daily guard those walls…as a labor of love.
Shalom through strength…
