Reports from the Middle East on the aftermath of the deadly terror attacks in Brussels criticize Muslims for fostering an atmosphere and culture in which such violence is birthed.
Stunningly, the criticism is coming from Muslims.
âWe say that âterrorism has no religion and no homeland.â But we must confront the fact that most terrorist attacks in the Arab and Muslim world itself are not carried out by Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Ahmadis, or Bahais â but by Muslims and the sons and daughters of Muslims,â wrote Kuwaiti author Khalil âAli Haider in the Bahraini daily Al-Ayyam....

Thanks for taking the time. I was in the middle of something and didn't have time to look it up. I appreciate it. Interesting, and also interesting, like you said, that it's generally not, convert, or, pay a tax, or, be murdered, but rather, convert or we'll cut your head off. Period. Thanks again, learned something new.

Hey Chris, I just did a little research on it. It is also referred to as a poll-tax. It was designed to make those who were not believers feel inferior enough that they would convert to Islam later on. IOW, when someone knows those who pay this tax, they know they are inferior to other Muslims. It is a way to disgrace them.
I'm not sure why some can pay this tax while others, and probably most, are not given this choice and are killed.
It is mentioned in the Quran and also in the tafsir of Quran which is some type of commentary.
White House Scrubs "Islamic Terror" From French President's Translated remarks. The refusal to call Islamic terrorists Islamic is nothing new for President Obama and his White House. But during a visit Thursday from French President Francois Hollande as part of the nuclear summit being held in Washington D.C., the White House scrubbed the words "Islamic extremists" from remarks made by Hollande during an audio and video translation. The White House Finally released :
" But we're also well aware that the roots of terrorism, Islamist terrorism, is in Syria and in Iraq. We therefore have to act both in Syria and in Iraq,
That section was scrubbed from audio/video The rest was " and this is what we're doing within the framework of the coalition. And we note that Daesh is losing ground thanks to the strikes we've been able to launch with the coalition. We are continuing to support Iraq. This is also a decision we have taken, supporting the Iraqi government and making sure that they can claim back their entire territory, including Mosul."
You cannot beat an enemy that you are unwilling to name. The French get it. Unfortunately, Obama &his White House do not.
Jay Smith notes Britain going from 15% to 48% support for terrorists from 2001 to 2006 !!
The source of Islamic terrorism is the Quran. If someone believes in and tries to live their lives by it, they will either demand conversion or someone might be allowed to pay the infidel tax, or they will die. So the only Muslims who donât practice terrorism or support it, are those who are simply Muslim by birth; in other words in name only. The fact that someone says they know peaceful Muslims only means those Muslims arenât practicing the faith as passed down by Mohammed. The goal of true Islam is world domination and in their minds religious freedom is the ability to live in a society that is run by Islam.
A worthwhile read from a Christian Missionary who loves the lost by not being ashamed of sharing the whole counsel of God's word with a lost person who is a practicing faithful follower of Islam.
Faith only comes by hearing the word of God being faithfully shared with others, as through the Holy Spirit the layers of deception are peeled away. For one to see & understand that they have a huge problem in falling short of the mark of Christ perfection alone amen.
I have lived and worked in the Middle East and met many Muslims who were completely normal, friendly and not hostile to me or my western background. It is good to see some of these Muslims speaking out against the terrorists and extremists. But it will not end there. These Muslims who try to live a normal peaceful life in the "Global Village" will be described as anti-muslim, cowardly or westernised. The brain washed terrorist has emerged in modern history as a fact of man's inhumanity to man. History has demonstrated many times before just how evil man can be. Christians identify sin and rebellion against God and seek to communicate this truth to all their global neighbours and we see the hostile reaction that can bring in countries such as India and Pakistan. Ultimately hate, hostility and killing is deep rooted in mankind and Muslim terrorism is just another example of this reality. These reprobates are brainwashed to the extent that they think they are serving the purposes of God (their Allah god) to that end they will continue serving Satan in these end times.
As for these Christians :- we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Jay Smith, a quick-thinking, controversial evangelical known for debating Muslims. He uses chapters (surahs) from the Qur'an as his principal text. On this occasion, Smith and Beth Grove, a British grad student in theology, debate the place of women in traditional Islam, in contrast to New Testament teaching.
Above murmurs and heckles, Grove notes in surah 2:282 that one man's testimony is equal to that of two women. Surah 4:11 allows a woman only half the inheritance a man receives. Surah 4:34 describes how a husband ought to punish his wife for disobedience: admonish her, kick her out of bed, and beat her.
Before Grove finishes, a bearded challenger named Adnan interrupts her. But Smith booms out, "Let the woman speak! See how he doesn't want to let the woman speak!"
"Liar!" Adnan shouts back at Smith and Grove as tourists' video cameras record the scene.
"So the Qur'an lies?" Smith asks. "You must be saying the Qur'an is lying, then."
Adnan bends to huddle with his debate coaches, ... he calls out, "The Bible says women are the root of all evil." Smith asks for a scriptural reference. Adnan can't provide one. In the crowd, a Christian quotes 1 Timothy 6:10: [URL=http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2008/june/21.34.html]]]Smith debates mohameddans[/URL]

Swaggart's wife was raised by a father who was an alcoholic according to what I read about Swaggart's wife.

Praise God for this revelation if it is a realization of what is really in the Koran. Their religion is unforgiving, unloving, and offers nothing eternally comforting to look forward to. Then, when it comes to rewarding women in the afterlife, there are no virgins for them. I don't mean to sound vulgar. My friend, who escaped Iran, says they learn to retaliate 10 xs more than injury inflicted upon themselves. No forgiveness. Also, most woman live in conflict which is caused by not knowing what the husband requires at any particular moment.

I see this as no different then a husband that beats you then apologises only to beat you again ...
The Cycle of Violence http://www.dvsolutions.org/info/cycle.aspx
right now that abusive husband is holding out a bouquet and chocolates ... he might even have a piece of jewelry in his pocket in case the flowers don't work ... it's the honeymoon phase ... once he has won you over he proceeds to beat the ever living crap out of you ...
Well, at least a Muslim is speaking out against his brothers for a change. First time I've heard it done. Unfortunately, anyone that matters never has a word of shame or an order to stop. The liberal stations just let them on to decry how they're being discriminated against, yet not one that I've ever listened to condemned the terrirists deeds. So interesting how logic can be so flawed and difficult to comprehend as a nation stands up and fights for the very same religion which is sworn to convert or murder them. Reminds me of the hoards of illegals who gathered to protest in front of our statehouse, demanding drivers licenses. Crazy. Instead of being arrested, people talk about how unfairly they're being treated. Ridiculous.
