Seventh Century Anti-Islamophobic Rhetoric

An anti-Islamophobia event hosts a panel of speakers, one of whom is a prominent college professor at Florida Atlantic University who discusses the “rationality” behind a seventh-century punishment of cutting off a person’s hands for stealing.  

Recorded on video, the professor explains the vicious punishment of Sharia law that is supposed to prevent Muslims from stealing.

They begin to weigh and balance judgment from the place of killing people as an acceptable way of punishment.  Their judgment seems to start at death, as if every crime is punishable by death, so thief’s ought to be happy that they only get their hands cut off.  They get to keep their lives and so it is a better sentence because they get to live for a crime such as stealing.

So in trying to get this straight, the thinking is, that instead of killing people who rob and steal, it is better to cut their hands off.  By cutting off their hands, the robbers and thief’s lives are compassionately spared.  We are supposed to see this backwards logic as if it were more humane, more humane than actually killing them.  As if cutting off body parts in judgment of a person who committed a crime could ever be humane.

Apparently such severe torture is supposed to deter Muslims from stealing, yet how has this form of punishment worked for them?  Why is this still their law if it is supposed to create a fearful example to Muslims and make them never want to steal, or get caught stealing?  It doesn’t work or they wouldn’t need this law.  It would have solved the problem the first time.

It is more a barbaric statement about who they are at the core, to see this as a humane way of punishing someone.  The problem is, there is nothing human, or humane, about Sharia law.  

The law forces down people’s throats a very brutal, primitive lifestyle, one that has never progressed beyond a seventh century caveman mentality that view people as animals to be slaughtered, and the people are seen as never amounting to any value at all.

My perspective is that it is a self-fulfilling prophecy that they will exist but only by barbarism because they can’t think of a way to survive and risk being found out as being the flunkies of the world that they are among regular people on earth.

I see it as being that these people pushing Sharia law on us don’t know how to live among friendly people and they refuse to civilly cohabitate on the earth with the human race.  If they can’t have what others have they must steal what they can and subjugate people, senselessly murder people, trampling their way across other people’s lands to try and take it from them, like rejects at birth.  No one wants to play that way.  As children who grew up to be cruel to animals, Sharia law adherants will try and take away things that aren’t theirs, bully and scream until they dominate people who will give up fighting them off.  Making nice with people like this won’t work; they never learn how to be civil and aren’t interested in becoming so.  They want to rob and kill and according to Christian belief, this is what Satan does: he comes to kill, steal and destroy.

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” – John 10:10  (KJV)   

Don’t you think you ought to protect yourself against these people and not make a way clear for these people to enter in our lands to take from us what it is that we hold dear?

Safety for one, is what most people hold dear.  We trust that in the United States we will be held accountable for our actions and so that helps dispel the criminal elements in our cities and towns.

But Sharia law cuts the hands off of their people who rob and steal so they can walk around in public without their hands, supposedly as an example of what will happen if you have possibly be found guilty of stealing.  That ought to be enough to keep those people in line; after all, without hands they can never do anything bad again.  Next time, if they try stealing they may get their arms cut off, or be killed since they had a warning.

What mentality thinks this way?

My feeling is that these are small minded rejects who can only “win” at anything by displaying their barbaric pride, and seeing people die.

Muslim Slaves of the False God “Allah” of Islam

As to God’s calling, I have spent time reading up on the Muslim belief, read some of the Koran and found myself confused and overwhelmed with the amount of information I have found that’s out there.

My faith is in God, the Lord Jesus Christ, and so I may as well put myself out there that under no circumstances will I ever believe that Muslims have the same faith as I do.  They pray to something else which is not of the Christian belief.  I was pretty amazed to find this picture and read what it says in my path to learn more about Islam.  

If you read the sign in the photo, it says, “Jesus is the slave of Allah” and “Islam will conquer Rome”.  I found this photo from the article on JihadWatch.org.  

Jesus slave of Allah

Robert Spencer, the author of the article and Director of JihadWatch goes on the say in his article that to Muslims, Jesus was the prophet of Islam which I find very distasteful, irreverent and wrong.

The page talks about Christians elevating “Isa” and by the time I got through reading the article I felt that the Muslims have copied Christianity to some extent and have tried to make Allah God and to fabricate a trinity as the Christian’s believe.  In Christianity there is God the Father, his son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, which is a gift from the Lord Jesus Christ.  So in the Christian belief, God is a triune God in three forms, and so in Islam they have fabricated in copy-cat fashion that they have a triune God made up of Allah, Satan, oh u-hum, I meant “Isa” who is either the son of Allah or part of their trinity, according to what Christians supposedly believed as the Muslim teaching goes, or that Isa is less than being a prophet, which the Jews supposedly believed back in those times I guess.  The article goes on to explain that to some, “Isa was the son of Allah, while others said that he was one in a trinity, and this is why they invoke the father, the son and the holy ghost!”

Doesn’t that sound familiar?  Even a non-believer would know that the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost is a Christian belief!  It can be said that copying is the highest form of flattery, but who wants the kind of flattery that says that the Christian belief is a form of hostility, so that for anyone who does not believe, you will either be killed, pay a poll tax called jizya (extortion) or you have to convert to Islam!

Of course this does make Christians sick to think we lower Christ to only being a prophet and not the son of the Father and that Jesus was merely the forerunner of a “precursor of a messenger who would come after him, whose name would be Ahmad”.  Now in the real Christian faith, what Jesus sent from Heaven after his death was the Holy Spirit, not “Ahmad” which is the prophet Muhammad to Muslims.  And Islam also turns Moses into Allah’s messenger, yet we all know that God split the sea for Moses and his people to go through: Exodus 14:21 –  And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.  Nowhere in the bible does God refer to himself as Allah.

Minutes with Messiah explains where Allah came from for us.  It says, 

One of the biggest fictions about Islam is that they worship the same God as the Christians or the Jews. “Allah” may have come to mean “God,” but was originally the name of one of the minor deities of the Arabic peninsula. When Muhammed received the Qur’an he said it came from this one of the gods of the neighborhood, and claimed that he was the One God and all others were not real gods. But even if you accept that Allah is supposed to be the same God as that of the Jews or Christians, then he must have changed his whole nature in the 400 years between Jesus and Muhammed.

It kind of gives you goose bumps as to how messed up their belief is.  I know in the Christian belief, we have answers from the Holy Spirit and communing with God, meditating on His Word and some of us believe we have Holy Angels guiding us and teaching us to keep us from harm.  You might call these “ministering angels” or “guardian angels” who fight for us every day, fighting a spiritual war that we know is there but that we cannot see or discern.  A scripture about our guardian angels is Hebrews 1:14, which says, Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

My Life in the Northern California Bay Area

So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. — 2 Corinthians 4:18

post

This blog seems likely in the face of my many attempts to write a book, among accomplishing other things in life.

I am on the young side of the baby-boomer generation, the best generation there is and one of the greatest in the country!  We never stopped working, we became educated, we worked hard, opened businesses, raised families and invented plenty of stuff.  And we voted, at least I did, but in smaller races, like city council where I was a hard worker on a socialism campaign, many years ago in the dark ages where people were dirt poor from other countries building homes in America.

One year I lived in a not-so-wealthy area, but in Marin County, California, and if you know California at all you are already familiar with the County of Marin.  It is a very wealthy county with old money, connections to vine yards and San Francisco, “The City by the Bay”.  All very elegant only I’m not sure on the facts.  I know they are rich but I don’t know for sure that they are all tied to the vineyards in California, nor if they have “old money”, like the Queen of England has.  

I’m just guessing at this because I look back into a kind of dream land, one that I miss dearly now thaginkgot I am stuck here in Washington state where it’s cold, which is not as beautiful as I remember California is.  And they have no Eucalyptus trees, nor Ginkgo trees!  I didn’t know how healthy they were: Ginkgo trees, until I started to study herbs and supplements for my health but I know they don’t have any because I never saw any here in Washington state!  If you see any, tell me, because I miss them, I love them!

I grew up with them in Rohnert Park, California, where my dad helped plant all the ginkgo trees along the city streets back in the day.  I remember he had a shovel and dug through the earth along the side of the street, where each house got one out in front by the curb.  They looked nice, and it was a nice little city before we moved there from San Francisco.  My sister was born there, and I was born before her in Los Angeles, but my other older two sisters were born wherever they were born because I never knew where they were born!

It doesn’t matter now that each one of us has grown up to not necessarily stay in touch.  I’m not a part of them any longer, and I’m just as happy about that.  They are still non-believers, and I am a Christian in a non-believing family where we were raised to be liberal Democrats and atheists.  I feel I must share my story as part of God’s purpose: to share my faith and learn about the muslim faith, writing about their belief, and how it damages Christians.  This ought to be a hell of a blog.
