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 Outdated immigration policies and weak border control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.

Islam at war with us, 'Muslim Mafia' spy says
July 16, 2017 - After infiltrating the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Chris Gaubatz claims that their
goal is to turn America into an Islamic nation.
“They define jihad as warfare against non-Muslims, but it’s not just people shooting things and blowing things up. That’s one … jihad.
The other aspect of the jihad is media manipulation, political influence operations, espionage, intelligence gathering, and propaganda,” Gaubatz stated.
