Why standest thou afar off, O Lord? why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble? The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined. For the wicked boasteth of his heart’s desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the Lord abhorreth. The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts. His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them. He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity. His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity. He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor. He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net. He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones. He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth his face; he will never see it. Arise, O Lord; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the humble. Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he hath said in his heart, Thou wilt not require it. Thou hast seen it; for thou beholdest mischief and spite, to requite it with thy hand: the poor committeth himself unto thee; thou art the helper of the fatherless. Break thou the arm of the wicked and the evil man: seek out his wickedness till thou find none. The Lord is King for ever and ever: the heathen are perished out of his land. Lord, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear: To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more oppress.(PSalm 10)
I think of this Psalm on this the 12th anniversary of the 9-11 terrorist attacks, which slaughtered 3000 innocent people, going about their productive lives, maimed and injured thousands more for life, and led to the invasion and fall of two Islamic countries, and the destabilization of the Muslim world.
The Psalmist seems to describe Islamic terror, with all of its plotting, planning, hiding and lurking, in order to take innocent blood. The Psalm also makes mention of the boasting,(Who can forget, the boast,”You westerners are weak, because you love life, but we Muslims love death?), or the Arabic cry of impotent comparison,translated, “God is Great(er)!”?
Islam is a culture of comparison, a constant, envious, insecure system of comparison. This is because deep in their hearts, Muslims know that they serve a blood thirsty “god”, and that they could never really build a civilization in any way compatible with Judeo Christian civilization. Muslims are better at destroying than they are at building.
Amazingly enough, rather than being roundly and thoroughly condemned after the cowardly act of treachery perpetrated by the followers of the Moon god worshipping Pedophile, and false prophet, Islam has actually advanced in some circles, even in America.
I don’t recall which pundit it was, who made the observation, in the chaotic days following 9-11, that from the time we revoked the Word “Crusade” from the name originally given to our military operation in response to 9-11, out of “respect” for Muslims, the war was already lost by the West. Furthermore, when Bush invited Muslim leaders to participate in (or rather to desecrate) public prayers, we were already defeated.
Obama has gone further and scrubbed any connection whatsoever with acts of terror and ISlam. This is how a NIdal Hasan could go through the military, virtually advertising that he is a terrorist, and not be caught before killing 13 soldiers at a military base. Willful blindness!
We have since 9-11, gained a whole new vocabulary here in America, learning words such as
“Jihad”, Holy war against the unbelievers and idolaters.
“Sharia”, the Islamic legal system. It is dualistic, with one law for unbelievers, and the other for Muslims. Includes punishments such as dismemberment and crucifixion for crimes such as theft and defection from Islam.
“Honor Killing”- the practice of brothers or Fathers hunting down and killing female members of the family if they ever ‘shame’ the family name, for crimes such as being seen with a boy, being raped, not wearing a hibjab.
FGM- is an acronym for Female Genital Mutilation. Te UK had 2000 young grls come to emergency rooms last year alone to repair the damage done to girls as young as three. Isn’t diversity great?
“Taqiya”, The tactic of deception by Muslims against infidels for the purpose of military disinformation. Remember Muslims are in a permanent state of war with infidels.
“hudna”, a temporary peace treaty with the infidel, until one gains a position of advantage.(There can be no permanent peace with infidels).
“Kaffir”- a subhuman, lesser person, not worth as much as a Muslim, with less rights under Sharia.
“Shahid”- A Martyr. But not like Christian martyrs, who often die for the sake of the truth and of the Gospel. A Muslim martyr is usually a mass murderer, seeking to attain paradise(A place very much like playboy magazine) by pole vaulting over the broken bodies of innocent men, women and children.
“Dhimmi”- A Dhimmi is an infidel who is allowed to live under ISlamic governance, provided he is made to “feel humiliated” (Straight out of the Koran folks). Dhimmis are perpetual second class citizens, subject to affront and indignity at any time, by Muslim fellow citizens. The word of a Dhimmi is never as good as the word of any Muslim in a court of law, and they must pay an exorbitant “Dhimmi tax” to their Muslim overlords just to be able to ‘live’.
“Jizya”- Jizya is the name for the “Dhimmi” tax, imposed on the Dhimmis for the privilege of living.
“Creeping Shariah”- the subtle practice of imposing Islam in bits and pieces on unsuspecting, liberal democracies, using “Lawfare”(Warfare by lawsuit,complaint,activism,etc).
Through “Creeping Sharia”, Muslims have imposed Halal foods on many schools in the UK, seek to change school holidays in Christian countries, and have been able to ban alcohol from Taxi’s in Minneapolis,and footbaths in airports and universities all over America. Muslims are masters of taking advantage of the good intentions and hospitality of westerners.
I don’t want to learn anymore about Islam,I think I have seen enough. The arrogance and tone deaf insensitivity of Muslims, such as cheering openly when the towers fell down, exaggerating a “Backlash” when ever their co religionists carry out yet another atrocity, wanting to build a Mosque on ground Zero, and this years “million Muslim” march on the anniversary of 9-11 are disgusting to civilized people all over the world.
I want to be clear, I do not hate and despise Muslims. They are people, precious to God and many are awakening to the horror that is their religion. They are troubled because they are still men with a conscience, which cannot “square” with a religion that kills and destroys the innocent.
It is Islam which I hate. If there was ever a moratorium on killing defectors from Islam, I believe millions of Muslims would stream out of it almost instantly.
Though our feckless “Ruling elite” may see in Islam a way to destroy whatever remains “Christian” of the once Christian West, we shouldn’t worry. Read the end of the PSalm. They think God doesn’t see but HE does. He is taking down names, and recording everything. Soon the wicked will fall into the very pit which he himself dug!
The LORD of Hosts shall have the last word. The prophets of the Bible warn that the entities which today make up the Muslim world are headed for a reckoning, for the Lord will come personally to make war with them! Everybody get ready! Jesus is coming to Judge the Earth!
O Lord God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself. Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud.Lord, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph? How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves? They break in pieces thy people, O Lord, and afflict thine heritage. They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless. Yet they say, The Lord shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.(Psalm 94:1-7)
