This is a true story and the author, Rick Mathes, is a well-known leader in prison ministry. This has been on the internet before; but, a lot of people still have no idea what the beliefs of Muslims are and what the definition of an “infidel” is in the Muslim world. The thing that I cannot understand about this religion and their beliefs – why on earth did we allow them into the country to begin with. We should be doing what Japan does and not allow them in to begin with and then we would not be having this problem. All they want to do is to come in and live off the dole of the hard-working American people; and, I blame our government and politicians for allowing it to get to this point.
Something is wrong when the government cannot get in front of this problem and continues to call it “work-place violence” instead of calling it what it is – “terrorism.” In this next election, we have to elect people who will confront this problem head-on instead of thinking it is going to go away. And this is what is happening with this present administration.
“The Muslim religion is the fastest growing religion per capita in the United States, especially in the minority races. Last month I attended my annual training session that’s required for maintaining my state prison security clearance.
“During the training session there was a presentation by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant, and Muslim faiths who each explained their beliefs. I was particularly interested in what the Islamic had to say. The Muslim gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam, complete with a video. After the presentations, time was provided for questions and answers. When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Muslim and asked:
“Please, correct me if I’m wrong, but I understand that most Imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad (Holy war) against the infidels of the world and, that by killing an infidel (which is a command to all Muslims) they are assured of a place in heaven. If that’s the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?” There was no disagreement with my statements and, without hesitation, he replied, ‘Non-believers!’
“I responded, So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who is not of your faith so they can have a place in heaven. Is that correct? The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that of a little boy who had just been caught with his hand in the cookie jar. He sheepishly replied, Yes. I then stated, well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine The Pope commanding all Catholics to kill those of your faith or Dr. Stanley ordering all Protestants to do the same in order to guarantee them a place in heaven! The Muslim was speechless!
“I continued, I also have a problem with being your friend when you and your brother clerics are telling your followers to kill me! Let me ask you a question: Would you rather have your Allah, who tells you to kill me in order for you to go to heaven, or my Jesus who tells me to love you because I am going to heaven and He wants you to be there with me? You could have heard a pin drop as the Imam hung his head in shame. Needless to say, the organizers and/or promoters of the “Diversification” training seminar were not happy with my way of dealing with the Islamic Imam and exposing the truth about the Muslims’ beliefs.”
If this is the case, and due to the Oklahoma beheading, we need to isolate these people until they change their Koran to reflect a religion of love instead of hate and remove those beliefs of Sharia law, hate and killing. We cannot keep acting like these beliefs don’t exist because they do and they are here right under our nose and they do not uphold our Constitutional rights.
Our fore fathers built this nation and fought for it. These people do not have any stake in this country. They speak of their religion of being a religion of peace and they live by Sharia law, hate and killing? Sorry, but I don’t call that peace. The definition of peace is freedom from war or fighting or calm or quiet. They have been fighting within their own religion since 600 AD.
From what I can see in order for them to get along in this country they are going to have to change their way of thinking because they are guests in this country. The law of etiquette states “when two enemies happen to be at the same social event at the same time – and both must remain — they should either avoid eye contact or, if this proves difficult, both should mutually back off so as not to disrupt the event. If even that is impossible and a personal meeting is inevitable, nothing says more than stony silence or more than politeness.”
The hard part is because of the nature of America’s friendliness and charity and the coldness, rudeness to women, and aggressiveness of the Muslim culture, it is difficult to mix the two religions. They just don’t fit in! You cannot put a round peg in a square hole. All of this sounds harsh; but, we must put the facts on the table to know what we are dealing with so we don’t have another beheading. Just think what this woman’s family is going through right now. Just put yourself in their shoes! We must make our government take a stand on this problem.
