At the National Prayer Breakfast on Feb. 5, President Obama showed his true colors. Judging from his comments one must conclude the man fails to understand Judaism, the Judeo-Christian ethic and Islam. Is the failure by his own choice?
“The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer.” Fancy that!
“Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.” Says he, but the facts don’t support the statement.
In his comments, he spoke of the good and evil which can be done in the name of religion. He spoke of the Crusades, which started in 1095 and ended about 200 years later. He spoke of the Inquisition, which took place in Spain over a period of about 400 years (1478-1834). Somehow those events are supposed to be the Christian equivalent of Islamic atrocities which are being committed today. Pathetic that he had to go back 500 to 1,000 years to find Christian misdeeds, which may have equaled those of today’s Islamic State terrorists.
In referring to the Crusades, he failed to say they came about because of the Islamic invasion of Christian nations. The first Crusade took place because the emperor of the Byzantine empire asked for help from his European friends while his nation struggled to maintain its sovereignty as the Islamic hordes sought to replace Christianity with the supreme religion of Islam. Of seven crusades, only the first was successful. The others were all failures. Islam was victorious.
Islam eventually conquered all of the Middle East and most of southern Europe and much of northern Africa during a 200-year period of time. If Charles Martel and his brother, Childebrand, hadn’t stopped them at Avignon, France, in 737 A.D. there’s a good chance all of Europe would now be Islamic.
As promised, the president removed our troops from Iraq. The results are the burgeoning forces of the Islamic State terrorists and their takeover of a very large part of Iraq and Syria. The same thing will happen in Afghanistan when we leave that nation to the Taliban and other fundamentalist Muslim terrorists.
So, as the United States Armed Forces leave the Middle East, the terrorists fill the leadership vacuum with their tolerance, benevolence and good deeds. All because of a certain proclivity our leader has for Islam.
As you study the political history of the world for the 20th century and the early 21st century, you will find that Communist terrorism and Islamic terrorism would have failed if it hadn’t been for the support of the U.S. in one way or the other. Isn’t that something?
Christianity is spread by the Word. Islam is spread by the sword.
