You are wrong Mr. Bush--It IS a religious war!
No, it is not polite to correct the President of the United States but if he is wrong, he is wrong, and as a representative of Christ, I am required to tell him when he is wrong. As a citizen I also have the right to correct him since he works for me! It is especially incumbent upon me to correct him when his actions are deceptive, dangerous, and even deadly for Americans.
Yes, we are involved in a religious war because it has been declared against us by various Islamic clerics and leaders and is being carried out by their followers. And everyone knows that the first priority in war is to identify your enemy. Islam is our enemy. Does saying that make me a bigot and hater? Are my motives really important to anyone but me? Don't intelligent people ask, "Is it true?" not "What motivates him?"
While the President has enormous power, he does not have the power to rewrite history nor does his saying, "black is white" make it true. The Koran is full of evidence proving me right and the President wrong! I can only assume that Mr. Bush has not read the Koran or the Hadith and if his counselors have done so they are not being truthful with him. Their heads should roll–yesterday!
The Oct. 22 issue of USA Today blared: "Bush to clerics: Muslims aren't enemy." Bush told "moderate" Muslim clerics ("Moderate" is usually a Muslim who doesn't have the power to take control–today.): "Americans know that these terrorists are hiding behind Islam in order to create fear and chaos and death." That is not true. Those terrorists are simply following the teachings of the Koran and Hadith and all educated, honest people know that, unless they are blinded by political correctness.
Then the column mentioned Army Lt. Gen. William Boykin who was quoted as saying that Muslims worship an idol, not a "real God." Bush distanced himself from a great American when he said that Boykin "didn't reflect my opinion." Bush said. "It just doesn't reflect what the government thinks. And I think they were pleased to hear that."
Evidently, Mr. Bush, does not know that Allah was the pagan moon god that was worshipped along with 359 other pagan gods in the Kaaba at Mecca. Numerous historians, some Islamic, clearly confirm that historical fact. Are we Christians expected to waltz around the facts to make Muslims more comfortable with their 7th century desert religion? Doesn’t truth matter to politicians?
The President was correct when he said that the Muslims "were pleased to hear that” he did not support Boykin. Of course they were, and he may have picked up a few "friends" but he will lose me and my vote if he throws Boykin to the wolves. He will lose all informed, thinking Americans if he continues to pander to Muslims by disregarding historical facts to placate Muslims who are determined to destroy America. The true Muslim who follows the historic teaching of the Koran is as vicious as a junkyard dog with PMS.
Sura 2:193 clearly provides marching orders for every Muslim in the world: "And fight them until there is no more (disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah) and (all and every kind of) worship is for Allah (Alone)." In the event those plain words are not understood, the Hadith footnote in the Koran (published in Medina, Saudi Arabia) says: "I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people till they testify that (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah….")
I could provide numerous such verses as the above but only one more found on page 39 of my Koran:
"Al-Jihad (holy fighting) is given the utmost importance in Islam and is one of its pillars (on which it stands). By Jihad Islam is established….Jihad is an obligatory duty in Islam on every Muslim." Now that is what real Muslims believe so how can Administration officials affirm that Islam is a peaceful religion that has been hijacked by fanatics? It is obvious the screaming Muslim mobs understand the meaning of Jihad. How can Bush say that the "face of terror is not the true face of Islam" or "Its teachings are good and peaceful…"? If those statements are true, let him prove them, after all, simply making the statements do not make them true! If they are false then he should be corrected; after all he is only the President of the United States, not a member of the Trinity!
I suggest that Mr. Bush recognize that Islam is at war against us although understanding that there are many modernist Muslims who don't follow Islamic teachings. He should be suspicious of anyone who refuses to recognize Arafat as a terrorist; body bombers as vicious killers; financial supporters of terrorist groups as terrorists; female circumcision as sexual mutilation; and Saudi officials as two-faced hypocrites.
It is time to stop pandering to all things Muslim and recognize that Islam is a Trojan Horse full of the enemy dedicated to making America an Islamic nation. I predict that when the Muslim terrorists strike us again, Bush and Co. will discard the dangerous façade about peaceful Muslims as quickly as long underwear in a Texas heat wave.
This war is to be expected as we go into the End of the Age. And, it is here, upon us now!
