Of the 1.57 billion Muslims in our world almost all use two books: one is the Koran and the other is the Hadith. Both of these books are filled with radical passages and beliefs that do anything but teach peace.
After 9/11 Americans and the west in general knew little to nothing about the Islamic religion. Those blissful days of ignorance have long passed. Now we know that these books teach jihad, but they also have little regard for the faith of others in our world.
The Koran is the book of recitation and the Hadith is the narrative of the Islamic religion. They are considered ‘sacred’ by Muslims, but Anton LaVey’s Satanic bible is considered sacred by followers of Satan. The word sacred is hardly what makes a religion, authentic, Godly and least of all peaceful.
Any edifice, object or religious practice can be called sacred, but that is hardly what actually makes it sacred. Examples abound.

Aztecs thought it was a sacred act to kill human beings in rituals. That long gone civilization alone should be fair warning that a world that snuffs out its own will soon be given the boot when the society finally wakes up to the evil of self-annihilation. But let’s not wander.
We have in today’s world an inclination for inclusion in Europe and a politically correct president in America that is leading the nation into the wide wonderful world of the wimpy, in an ersatz land of collective Stockholm syndrome.
Along comes a Presidential candidate (Trump) who says enough is enough and he is subsequently catapulted to the highest poll levels of popularity of any candidate in over a half century. Is the west awakening?
There are two very important changes taking place in our world today.
First, the strong winds of collective awareness of the Islamic desire to dominate the world. The 1.5 wants to force the 6.5 billion into their playing field. This worldwide bondage posing as something “sacred.”
We must thank President Lincoln for the reminder that amply covers both political and religious nonsense from wherever it may spring. Abe was noted for saying – “You cannot fool all of the people, all of the time.”
The second notable change is coming from the Muslims themselves. Every time an incident like the Paris attacks ensues a few will cower into submission and fear. But the majority will be repulsed and driven to resist by any and all means the kind of tyranny that indiscriminate terror produces. They will succeed.
That it is not just a few radicals creating all the worlds’ terror is now becoming fully apparent. Two recent examples come from the U.S. and from Turkey.
The media lambasted Donald Trump for saying that in New Jersey Muslims were celebrating and cheering at the fall of the Twin Towers on 9/11. Since then hundreds of residents from New Jersey have come forward to say that they also witnessed the Muslims cheering the death of 3000 Americans and visitors. Trump told George Stephanopoulos of ABC he would not recant his story and others will not either.
Perhaps Trump prefers to live in a world where cheering someone’s demise is the moral equivalent of taking part in their fall. This is old America – this is the real America.
A second blaring example that shows all Muslims side with the extremists is nearly beyond comprehension. It has been kept well hidden by the American media, but in today’s information highway it is impossible to keep such an event tucked away for long.
Shortly after the Paris terror attack the Turkish soccer team met in Istanbul for a match. When a moment of silence was called for to honor the victims of the Paris massacre it was met with boos and loud chanting of ‘Allahu Akbar’ by the crowd of approximately 17,000 fans.
If we said 17,000 soccer fans were radical Islamists open for Jihad we may be bullied and scorned, but when we listen to them upholding the massacre it becomes fully apparent that Jihad goes across the entire spectrum of the Muslim world.
It is not an isolated few extremists that are causing all the trouble. We will either awake to this truth or we will die as wimps in a PC world that would rather entertain diverse fantasies in a deadly climate dominated by religious bigots and misguided idolaters.
Religions, ideologies, movements and any other works of man that amplify, glorify or support the indiscriminate slaughter of others can never be called sacred. Is it time for the world to grow up?
When the day comes when all will worship the world’s last dictator it is seen that whoever leads others to death or captivity will find the same fate will follow them. Here is a lesson for some who have the wisdom to receive it.
This is the promise – “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” (Rev 13: 8)
This is the product of the promise – “He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.” (Rev 13: 10)
