IMPORTANCE OF KNOWING ABOUT ISLAM












Islam has already affected us. Many have known people who died in the World trade towers or given their lives in fighting the evils of Islam abroad. I personally know a couple who lost their son-in-law, Dennis Cook, in the attack on the World Trade Towers. They were never the same after that and moved out of state. I go to church with a couple whose sons worked for Nick Berg, the American contractor beheaded by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi who had his death shown on video by a terrorist organization. Finally, I am very good friends with the parents of a man, Joel Shrum, who was assassinated by Muslims in Kenya. My wife had even asked him to speak at her funeral. I know, at one time, there was a 5-million-dollar reward for capture of his assassins. If the evils of Islam have not already touched your lives, I am afraid it will in the future. We cannot avert this impending threat if we do not know about danger.
Conflicting stories

Following 9-11-2001, I first heard the news media report how evil Islam was. Then, all of a sudden, the TV was filled with Muslims saying how peaceful this religion is. Since this narrative did not match the reality of world events, I was driven to get more information. I thought what better way to get information than to go right to the source. Therefore, I read and studied the Koran, and later attended a presentation in a mosque. I have read 8 books about Islam and attended church services on Islam. I watched videos and TV shows about Islam. I soon realized many people were saying things that were the opposite of what I have read in the Koran and studied. They also were saying things that contradicted history, as well as current world events.

Many Christians, even missionaries have fashioned a view of Islam that contradicts mainstream Islam. This view of Islam is practiced by westernized Muslims who are considered infidels by most Muslims worldwide. These heretic Muslims twist the Koran so that it agrees with western morality yet keeps some of the theological beliefs of Islam. They are sort of the Jehovah witnesses of Christianity as far as a theological analogy. Many Christian missionaries believe these secular Muslims because missionaries often go to Muslim countries such as Senegal that are sanctuaries for these infidel Muslims. Most missionaries do not go to countries of true Islam because they would be persecuted or killed. These missionaries are in either ignorance or denial because they believe that these infidel Muslims represent true Islam but make up less than about 5% of Muslims word wide.
Consequently, Christian Muslim apologists like Gary Wills write books that few question. I read Will’s book, “What the Quran meant.” I found 7 factual inaccuracies in just the first 7 pages. Even his sources statistics were distorted and proven wrong by fact checkers. I personally questioned Wills on his book tour, and he had to lie in order to defend his assertion that Christians are never called “Polytheists” in the Koran. He said I must have a bogus translation. However, I later found out, even the translation used by wills in his book used the word “Polytheists” for Christians.

Statistics
Knowing about Islam is more than an academic exercise. It is a call to protecting the freedom and well-being of all people. Does this sound like hyperbole? Consider this:
• 61% of Muslims said that Arabs did not carry out the September 11th attacks. (2002, Gallup and USA Today – Poll involving 10,000 people in nine mostly Muslim countries: Turkey, Kuwait, Iran, Indonesia, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Jordan, and Lebanon.)
• Only 4% of Muslims in Britain believe al-Qaeda was behind 9/11 (31% believe it was the United States government). (Policy Exchange (2016)
• 38% Muslims worldwide believe that the 9/11 attacks were “somewhat,” “largely,” or “completely” justified (Georgetown Islamic Studies professor and a Gallup pollster)
• 36% of Arabs polled by Al Arabiya saying the 9/11 attacks were morally justified, 38% disagreeing and 26% of those polled being unsure. (A Saudi owned Al Arabiya and Gallup 2008 study)

Islam is coming!
This violence is coming to a place near you, if we do not learn about Islam and find a way to confront it. Consider these facts:
• 1.2 to 1.7 billion Muslims worldwide. Vs 2.4 billion Christians. By 2050 Islam is predicted to overtake Christianity as the leading religion in the world.
• 54 countries are 50%+ Muslim.
• USA – officially 2.6 million to 3.5 million Muslims
• Americas – 5.2 million, 1386 mosques
• PA – 98 mosques, over 500 in NY
• 3 Muslim in the US congress.

Naïve US citizens vote to put Muslims in power, knowing nothing about Islam. There are more Muslims among us than most people realize, and many of them have ties to terrorist organizations.

Be vigilant!
You owe it to yourselves, your family your friends, your country, and future generations to learn about Islam. Do not let history show Christians of this generations naively accepted a Trojan Horse. Do not allow future generations live under Sharia Law and be persecuted as infidels.
