Islam is the second largest, and some claim, the fastest growing, religion in the world. It is not well understood in the United States, but the attacks on the Pentagon and World Trade Center by militant Muslims have made people curious about its teachings. Many Muslims live in relative peace, but there is a strong, sizeable faction of radical militants that dominate the news and use terrorist tactics to advance it's agenda of world domination. Osama bin Laden and his organization, Al Qaeda, was responsible for the killing of more than three thousand innocent Americans.

Christians need to affirm their love for Muslims (Christ died for all men), and stand against any persecution against them based on their religion or ethnicity. We should also seek to enter into dialog with them where possible, so that they might learn more about Jesus, whom they respect as a prophet, but do not accept as savior. At the same time, we should be entirely opposed to the wanton murder of innocent people by terrorists. And we should not give the false impression, so prevalent in our culture today, that our beliefs are equal. Jesus said He is the only way to God the Father (John 14:6).

Radical Islam has continued to grow. Their aim is to control the world. Intelligence experts warn that another great attack is likely in America. Few Muslim mosques stand effectively against violence. Instead, they tend to serve as places of recruitment for jihadists. Outdated immigration policies and weak border control allow the continued flow of trained terrorists into our country. Americans and their leaders need to wake up and find ways to stop this trend before it is too late for us.

In July, 2014 the radical jihadist group, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), also known as Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), claimed that they were establishing a new Islamic caliphate, with the goal of reclaiming the lands once held by the Ottoman Empire. Using the most brutal tactics seen in our lifetime -- including beheadings, crucifixions, mass slaughter, and burying opponents alive -- they have invaded large portions of Syria and Iraq, and have killed or driven out almost all Christians. This new, illegitimate force is motivated by Sunni Islamic theology, and will undoubtedly be resisted by the Shite branch of Islam, led by Iran. They will also be opposed by Western powers, including the United States and the more moderate Sunni nations such as Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Egypt.

The continued growth of Islam raises another prophetic possibility: that the large and growing number of Muslims in Europe might exert a strong influence over the culture there. The affected area would resemble the old Roman Empire at it's greatest extent, and could be what was predicted in Daniel, chapter 2, where it depicts the final world empire, symbolized by iron [Rome] and clay [Islamic influence?]. See Revived Roman Empire.

Sept. 5, 2015 - Because of the crisis of refugees from the war-torn Middle East, Turkey's President Recep Erdogan said, "The Mediterranean is turning into a graveyard of migrants," Europeans have started blocking the mass movement of migrants, and are putting many into refugee camps.

Fragments Show Oldest Koran May Be Older Than Muhammad

Aug. 31, 2015 - Last month some fragments of the world's oldest Koran were carbon-dated by experts at the University of Oxford. It was determined that the parchment might even predate Muhammad.

"It destabilizes, to put it mildly, the idea that we can know anything with certainty about how the Koran emerged – and that in turn has implications for the history of Muhammad and the Companions," historian Tom Holland tells the Times.

Keith Small, from the University of Oxford's Bodleian Library, said this could mean that Muhammad's early followers used a text that was already in existence. In that case, they would have shaped it to fit their own political and theological agenda. It would also mean that Muhammad did not receive it as a revelation from heaven.

Islamic apocalypse starts this year or next

Mar. 31, 2015 - An article in the Islamic information site, Discovering Islam, claims to have calculated the soon-coming apocalypse from the Sunni theological perspective.

"Based on our numerical analysis of the Quran and Hadith, the official beginning of the End of Time and the coming of the Imam Mahdi will most likely be in 2015 (or 2016) and Jesus Christ will come down from Heaven to Earth in 2022."

Iran birth drive 'turns women into baby-making machines'

Mar. 11, 2015 - In the recent past Iran has tried to restrict the country's population with contraception subsidised by the state. However, two proposed new laws would reverse this trend and stimulate new population growth. One of the new laws would outlaw promoting birth control and another law would makes it harder for women without babies to get jobs.

"The authorities are promoting a dangerous culture in which women are stripped of key rights and viewed as baby-making machines," said Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui, Middle East and North Africa deputy director at Amnesty International.

Source: BBC
Editor's Note: This development is undoubtedly linked to Iran's plunge in population growth. Read the 2011 review by Reuven Brenner in Forbes, explaining a fascinating book about this phenomenon in the Islamic world, and how it threatens the very existence of Islamic Civilization -- Book Review: How Civilizations Die (and Why Islam is Dying Too). Islamic leaders are aware of this problem, and, in our opinion, it may be an important factor in their belief that the End of Days is approaching. This, in turn, could be the motivation behind their bold, possibly suicidal jihadist extremism.

Franklin Graham: Muslims Kill Christians to Emulate Muhammad

Mar. 9, 2015 - Franklin Graham told Fox News' Tucker Carlson that Muhammad was a man of war who killed many people.
