Germany anti-Islam protests: 17,000 march on Dresden against 'Islamification of the West'
Dec. 23, 2014 - More than 17,000 gathered in Dresden, Germany to support a group called PEGIDA - “Patriotic Europeans
against the Islamification of the West.” The crowd waved German flags and sang Christmas carols.
Pegida insists it is opposing only against extremism and not against immigrants or Islam itself, but the demonstrations have received
support from far-right and Neo-Nazi groups, prompting concerns that xenophobic sentiment might be rising.

Rev. Franklin Graham: Muslim Prayer Service at National Cathedral ‘Sad to See’
Nov. 15, 2014 - Franklin Graham objected to the use of the National Cathedral yesterday for a first-ever Muslim prayer
service. On Facebook Graham said,
“It’s sad to see a church open its doors to the worship of anything other than the One True God of the Bible who sent His Son, the Lord
Jesus Christ, to earth to save us from our sins,”
He also mentioned that Jesus claimed to be the only way to the Father - John 14:6
Carpets were arranged so Muslims could bow toward Mecca and not need to look at crosses or Christian icons, because
they are not allowed to pray in view of symbols of other faiths.

Caliphate In Europe: Sweden Cedes Control Of Muslim Areas
Nov. 7, 2014 - There are some 55 areas in Sweden that have become virtual Islamic states. According to Soeren Kern of the Hudson Institute:
They are de facto Muslim micro-states under Shariah law that reject Western values, society and legal systems. In these districts non-Muslims
are expected to conform to the dictates of fundamentalist Islam or face violent consequences.
Similar situations have developed all over Europe, where large Muslim populations have migrated to "tolerant" areas and then refused to
assimilate into the culture.

Is This the End for Mideast Christianity?
Nov. 5, 2014 -
"For Christians in the Middle East, 2014 has been a catastrophe. The most wrenching stories have come from Iraq, where the nascent Islamic State
(ISIS or ISIL ...) has savagely persecuted ancient Christian communities, including Assyrians, Chaldeans, and Syrian Orthodox."
Ever since the seventh century, when Islam conquered the Middle East, Christianity has been subdued, but even as late as 1914, the Christian population
of the whole region from Egypt to Persia (Iran)was still 10%. The percentage has declined greatly in Iraq since the first Gulf War in 1991, but
Christians still maintained a strong presence in Mosul, where the church was founded in the early days of Christianity.
Now observers say that the end of Christianity in Iraq and other parts of the Middle East is in sight. Only Egypt and Lebanon have a sizeable
Christian population, and they too are being persecuted.
The article explores the history of persecution and the question about why God allows it. Examples are given of persecution resulting in Christian growth,
especially in the case of China. The author concludes, "Suffering, Yes. Extinction, No."

Which is the Word of God?

Does moderate Islam exist?
Sept. 15, 2014 -
Until the leading Islamic scholars provide a peaceful theology that clearly contradicts the violent views of the IS, the
existence of a “moderate Islam” must be questioned.
The Islamic State (IS) believes that Muslims must offer non-Muslims the following choices: Convert to Islam, pay a humiliating tax called “Jijya,” or be killed.
This was also the belief of the early Muslims when they conducted their massive conquests.

Obama: Islamic State 'is not Islamic'
Sept. 10, 2011 - President Obama delivered a speech to announce “a comprehensive and sustained counter-terrorism
strategy” to “degrade, and ultimately destroy,” ISIS. His plan includes:
- Conduct a systematic campaign of airstrike against ISIL targets in Iraq and Syria.
The President also stressed that ISIL is "not Islamic," because “No religion condones the killing of innocents."
In addition, he said, “ISIL is certainly not a state." He explained that it was an al-Qaida’s affiliate that has taken advantage of the unrest
in Syria and Iraq, and it is recognized by no government as a legitimate state.
- Increase support to forces fighting terrorists on the ground, but avoid getting "dragged into another ground war in Iraq."
- Assist the moderate Syrian opposition to prevail against ISIL and the Assad regime.
- Provide humanitarian aid to oppressed civilians, including Sunni and Shiite Muslims, Christians and other religious minorities.

Saudi cleric: ISIS soldiers must kill their commanders
Sept. 9, 2014 -In a recent interview on Saudi TV, Islamic cleric Sa’d Al-Shathri said that ISIL (also called ISIS and Islamic State)is an apostate
movement, and its adherents are not going to be rewarded in the afterlife, but “will go to the hellfire.” He warned that the terrorist group...
". . . is fighting Allah and his messenger. They [spread] corruption and act against

1 common link among world's most brutal terrorists
Sept. 1, 2014 - Brigitte Gabriel's book, “They Must Be Stopped: Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam and How We Can Do It,” indicates
that the main thing all of the radical islamist groups have in common is the Koran itself.
For example, Quran 8:12 talks about striking fear into the hearts of disbelievers. Therefore, they cut off their fingers and toes because they disobeyed
Gabriel says that what ISIS is doing is no different than what any other group or devout followers of the Quran will do.
