Muslim Enemy Number 1

Posted by John Lindsay on 20th April 2013 in Christian Articles, Christian Doctrine, News


When I was 2 or 3-years-old, my grandmother would ask me to top sucking my thumb. I would then take my thumb out of my mouth and, with my thumb still wet with saliva, say, “I’m not sucking my thumb.” Who would have thought a child so young would show such a high aptitude for a career in either a journalism or politics.

In the aftermath of yet another seemingly arbitrary bombing, several reporters used their political correctness filters to avoid jumping to the obvious conclusion the offence was at the hands of Muslims. By doing so, they asked their audience to assume a cowardly strike aimed at the general public may have been orchestrated by some other group. Meanwhile, peaceful Muslims attempted to assure anyone who would listen, the Muslim faith does not condone the actions of their extremist brothers.

There was a news story a while back which stated, “The deceased had been shot, stabbed, burned and poisoned…the police believe it could be murder…” Since when has it become so unfashionable to state the obvious?

The term Muslim extremist is a very subtle way of separating the hand from the body. I do not blame my arm for being connected to the hand which put my thumb in my mouth. I would not even blame the body or mind if it were an isolated occurrence. However, when so much undisputed evidence of unacceptable behavior falls like rain, one has no choice but to find fault ultimately in an unchecked, flawed belief system imbedded in the corporate mind ruled by tenets of the Muslim faith.

Muslims proclaiming peace will continue to be self-contradicting so long as their Koran promotes and rewards the killing of infidels and displacing the law of the land. By attempting to convince non-Muslims the majority of them are peaceful, does nothing but lower the defenses of their prey. Instead, why not show the public what measures the so-called peaceful body of Muslims are actively pursuing to remedy, not their image, but their unprecedented aggression toward people who have done them no harm.

When a child repeatedly runs around unchecked hitting and biting other children, and the parents of the injured children confront the parent of the rogue child, what kind of response is, “The rest of the family doesn’t bite.”

Who fires guns without first aiming at a specific enemy? The Jews aim at the Palestinians who are aiming right back at them. The Irish Catholics and Protestants attach each other, which may be due to being able to function under the influence of large amounts of alcohol as opposed to differences in faith, but at least they know who their enemies are. The North Koreans just want someone to like their food. Americans like to blow things up, but at least we are willing to hold ourselves accountable through peaceful protest and a somewhat functional judicial system. Only Muslims attack arbitrarily.

Muslim make martyrs of fellow Muslims. They will strike at anything. Their unrest is not even limited to human beings. They attempt to corrupt the spirit of Holidays, competitive and social events. These are among the most vile, immature, senseless thugs ever to roam the earth. What is worse, is they believe their delusion to be righteous. Such hatred should be annihilated – not the person, but the hatred which is rooted in ignorance.

The Bible teaches Christians to love their enemies. The Koran teaches to kill them. The difference between Muslims and everyone else is a Muslim is taught decisively who his enemy is and what to do. For the rest of us, the enemy has become nondescript as we are submerged deeper and deeper into a culture of ever-heightening political correctness. We are taught not to call an enemy an enemy for fear of what the enemy might think. How ludicrous. How can you contend with an enemy unless you first recognize them for who and what they are? I have been taught to turn the other cheek, but I do not need to get hit a second time to recognize the fist which struck me the first time belongs to my enemy.

No other belief system suggests everyone who thinks contrarily is an infidel who should be eliminated. The Bible teaches all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, which does not give us the right to target and kill those who oppose us. It is easy to kill your enemy. What is difficult is to save someone through a lifelong quest devoted to showing the same level of grace God showed to those who first hated him.

I am certain the answer to this quandary will be found once we collectively get on our knees and pray. I am also certain any prayer targeting our Muslim enemies will only be worthy of God’s attention if it prefaces the fact God, even though he may have allowed this situation to occur, we forged it, and it is not God who needs to change or intercede. That task belongs to us. Too often the overzealous resistance suggests wiping them off the face of the earth, but hatred is spiritual. You cannot kill your enemy without fueling hatred’s fire and becoming a killer yourself. The only way to defeat hatred is with love. The prayer for guidance should also include how to build a wall of love without leaving those placed in our care vulnerable.

Nehemiah 5:16 “And it came to pass from that time forth, that the half of my servants wrought in the work, and the other half of them held both the spears, the shields, and the bows, and the habergeons; and the rulers were behind all the house of Judah. 17 They which builded on the wall, and they that bare burdens, with those that laded, everyone with one of his hands wrought in the work, and with the other hand held a weapon. 18 For the builders, everyone had his sword girded by his side, and so builded. And he that sounded the trumpet was by me.

It would appear there are four facets to defeating such an enemy. One group to build Love’s wall, another to defend the builders, another to keep watch and sound the alarm and the support of the rulers. Now that we have an enemy and a plan, all we need are laborers with a mind to work.
