Muslims, by belief and practice, are the most blatant violators of human rights. We hardly need to detail here Muslims’ systemic cruel treatment of the unbelievers, women of all persuasions, and any and all minorities across the board. To Muslims, human rights have a different meaning, and its protective provisions are reserved strictly for Muslims - primarily for Muslim men. Just a couple of examples should suffice for now.
Oppression of women, for one, is so systemic in Islam that to this day women are, at best, second-class citizens under Islamic law. Saudi Arabia, the custodian of Islamdom, denies women the right to drive, vote or hold elective offices - the most basic rights of citizens in democratic societies. Arabs and Muslims are masters of double-acts. They do all things in private, yet the public display of morality, decorum, and even piety is something you wear as you would your Keffiyeh even under the sizzling sun.
In model Islamic states such as Saudi Arabia and Iran, for instance, women do not dare complain about their Allah-decreed chattel status. If they protest in the least, they are beaten by their husbands. And if they dare to demonstrate in public for equal family rights with men, they get severe beatings by the police and are hauled to jails for additional indignities and violence.
One may wonder then why is it that millions of Muslim women meekly submit to their subservient rank and thank Allah for it. These women are virtually imprinted by their parents and the clergy from birth to adopt the gender inequality as well as the entire pathological Islamic ethos.
Islam can be a “forgiving” religion, specifically for the male. If you neglect to say your prayers or you simply don’t want to, you can hire someone, preferably an imam or a mullah, to pray on your behalf. Going to the Hajj is too onerous and takes you away from the pleasures and comforts of your life? You can deputize someone else to go in your stead. You have a few drinks of the forbidden brew and it is time to say your prayer? Simply rinse your mouth and go ahead with praying. But, always remember the will of Allah and serve him. Do your duties to vanquish the unbelievers, promote the rule of the Sharia, and make the earth Allah’s.
In Islamic societies, freedom of expression, worship, and assembly are taken away. Women are indeed treated as chattel. Young girls are subjected to barbaric genital mutilation to make them sex slaves and birth channels without the ability to enjoy intercourse. Minors are executed, adulterers are stoned to death, thieves have their limbs amputated, and much much more. Isn’t that everyone’s idea of paradise?
Women, by the very nature of their second-class status expressly stipulated in the Quran, are occasionally allowed a token high position in government, while non-Muslim minority citizens are virtually barred from securing any positions at all.
“Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the others and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them. Then if they obey you take no further action against them. Allah is high, supreme.”
This misogynist religion of Allah is custom-made for the savage male. A faithful follower of Allah is allowed to have as many as four permanent wives-and replace any of them at any time he wants-as well as an unlimited number of one night or one-hour-stand that he can afford to rent. But, woe unto a woman if she even has a single love affair with another man. Nothing less than death by stoning is her just punishment.
In the Islamic Republic of Iran and under the Islamic Sharia that became the unofficial law of the land, a religiously sanctioned ceremony immediately filled the void. Many mosques provided the service of Seeghe - temporary marriages -. Women interested or forced by circumstances beyond their control to seek this type of ‘marriage’ would register with a local Mullah. Men seeking a temporary wife would contact the Mullah and specify what kind of woman they desired and for how long. Depending on the marketability of the candidate woman, a fee is levied on the man and the Mullah pronounces them husband and wife for a stipulated duration. Once the patron satisfies his urges, the same Mullah simply annuls the marriage. Viola. No problems. The pair parts company and the Mullah, a replacement for the former pimp or madam, pockets his fee.
Thanks to Western technology, the Seeghe business has also joined the 21st century world. In some of the bigger cities and Tehran, a man can pick up a woman and call in for a Seeghe authorization which is granted over the phone and the fee is charged to the patron’s credit card. Islam is a custom-made religion for men. Well, as long as men rule and the rule serves them, the horrific plight of women plays out. It is a great deal for men.
What is incredible is the gall and audacity of Muslims in demanding that Western and other democracies legalize Sharia in their societies. Due to large populations of Muslims, mostly recent arrivals, in countries such as Canada, Great Britain, and Sweden, these countries are experiencing the insistent demands by Muslims to have Sharia rule their Islamic communities. This is just the beginning and it may seem relatively harmless to the simpletons in our midst. Yet, once Sharia is recognized to any extent, it will reach out to rule not only on matters that concern Muslims, but also those that may involve a Muslim and non-Muslim. Under Sharia, a Muslim man married to a non-Muslim woman is able to divorce the woman at will, automatically have custody of the children, and literally toss the wife out of “his” home with practically no compensation.
“Death to the Islamic Republic, Stop stoning women, Death to the Criminal Mullahs and Democracy for Iran, are the banners read almost routinely in most European countries by the Iranian ex-patriot sympathizers condemning the Islamic Republic’s brutality against women. They demand equal rights and treatments for the largest oppressed minority in the world.
As the world turns, we become convinced that the Islamic system is custom-made for men, by men and for the pleasure of men. And the men in power, the clergy, the prime beneficiary of the system, do not intend to voluntarily relinquish their privileged status.
There is a hope that Muslims themselves may leave this Bedouin slaveholder religion. Yet, the hope is slim. Islam has a stranglehold on its slaves and will neither let them go, nor do the Muslims seem to have the insight or the will to leave it in large numbers. But hope, as slim as it is, keeps me sounding the alarm before the fire of Islam engulfs us all.
Unfortunately, the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution leaves us totally vulnerable to the advance of Islam in America: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. That last phrase is a direct contradiction of the First Commandment: "Thou shalt have no other gods before Me." The U.S. Constitution is a polytheistic document because it refuses to take a definitive stand for the God of Christianity.
But the pretended neutrality of the U.S. Constitution is impossible to sustain. The King of kings said, "He who is not for me is against me." That makes the Constitution anti-Christ and anti-Biblical. All law is an expression of somebody's religion and only one law code will eventually prevail in the nation.
Lebanon provides us with a perfect case study. As long as the Muslims were in a minority they were peaceful and co-operative. There was a Christian President while the Sunni Muslims led one house of the legislature and the Shihite Muslims led the other house. Beirut was the "Paris of the Middle East." All was "sugar & spice" under the Enlightenment doctrine of "freedom of religion."
But as soon as the Muslims gained the majority all Hell broke loose and the house of Democracy crumbled into anarchy. Such it will always be for all nations (like America) that refuse to commit themselves without reservation to the God of the Bible and His "perfect law of liberty" (James 1:25). Ted Weiland has done a masterful job of analyzing the U.S Constitution from a Biblical standpoint at http://www.missiontoisrael.org/articles.php and there is additional detail at http://www.America-Betrayed-1787.com
The Bible zealously protects freedom of conscience. It was forbidden to persecute the "stranger" (resident alien) in ancient Israel. But a nation cannot commit itself formally to the law code of more than one religion. The Bible just as zealously insists that its law code is supreme. Biblical law is summarized in Exodus 20-23. Prior to 1787 most of the colonial Constitutions required a formal commitment of the officeholder to Christianity, but that oath was outlawed by Article VI, Section 3 of the Federalist Constitution. God is a jealous God. Any nation that rejects His law, such as the United States under its current Constitution will perish.
I really think the Treaty of Tripoli was an honest assessment of the United States under the Federalist Constitution of 1787: secular to the core. The Founding Federalists broke the earlier colonial covenants with God in at least 3 ways:
1) Trading in the governing authority of God for that of "we the people" in ordaining and establishing their government (preamble)
2) Making the Constitution itself and "laws of the United States made in pursuance thereof" the "supreme law of the land," rather than the law of God (Art VI, Sec, 2)
3) Making it illegal to require officials to swear allegiance to the law of God (Art VI, Sec. 3)
It is clear from Max Farrand's "Records of the Federal Convention" that the Founding Federalists had no interest in founding a Christian nation. Those records cover almost 6 inches on your book shelf and only once did they mention God or the Bible. That was when Franklin called for prayer, a motion that the convention rejected. When Christians claim that the founders were using "the Bible as their great political textbook" they are living in Fantasy Land.
Dennis.....agree with much of your comment but not that our constitution is "anti-God".......as has been said earlier worship is an "individual" experience not subject to denominations, religious cults, or even constitutions. A constitution or law will not make one a christian, religious, it is the individual to make that choice. The US constitution offers "free will" as God intended.....God chose us and desires us to "love Him" not be forced to love him by a constitution, religion and the like. The US constitution allows America to worship as they like using the "free will" that God intended. Thank God we have such a constitution that gives us freedom of choice.........governments and constitutions fall.......again thank God we can sustain our spiritual connection without relying on a government or constitution.
Harry, God deals with every institution of society by covenant. As individuals we enter into covenant with God for our salvation by faith, imputed through the righteousness of Christ. We have a marriage covenant. We should have a church covenant.
The Bible also speaks of a national covenant in which the nation itself via its public officials, covenants with God to make His law the foundation of their legal system. This national covenant is seen throughout the Old Testament, for example at Neh 9:38. The Gentile king of Nineveh entered into such a covenant in Jonah 3:7.
The American colonies understood this as expressed in the various colonial constitutions and charters. In every colony except Rhode Island (Rogue Island) the prospective office holder was required to take an oath to rule by the Christian religion.
These were the religious test oaths that are outlawed by Article VI, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution. By this act of rebellion the U.S. Constitution broke covenant with God and is therefore "anti-God." No man or nation has freedom to disobey God like this and break the national covenant without suffering severe consequences. Two hundred years after the fact we are paying for the sins of our forefathers just like Israel suffered when David sinned by taking the census. See http://www.America-Betrayed-1787.com
Therefore, the U.S. Constitution is a document of licentious rebellion from God, not a document of liberty under the law of God. The Constitution offers no defense from the heresy of Islam that is invading our culture, thanks to the polytheistic First Amendment.
Yet millions of women here in the US voted for a muslim. Millions of Catholics and Jews aslo voted for him.
I wonder if they would do it again.....probably.
