ALL of us, at least those who use their brains to discern what’s what and eschew PC mantras, surely understand that the “religion of peace” is nothing of the kind. And those who are Islamists (devoted to Islam) also know what is demanded of them: jihad, here there and everywhere!
In fact, Turkey’s PM Erdogan (Obama’s BFF…one who is held aloft as a “moderate” Muslim…like being half pregnant…but why quibble…), a key Muslim Brotherhood leader/devotee, is completely in league with high level Islamists who exhort jihad to the masses. Don’t believe this site, if so inclined, but do listen to what their Islamic scholars proclaim as their truths:
Ali Gomaa, the grand mufti of Egypt, the highest Muslim religious authority in the world, supports murdering non-Muslims. In the daily Al Ahram (April 7, 2008), he said, “Muslims must kill non-believers wherever they are unless they convert to Islam.” He also compares non-Muslims to apes and pigs. Source
Muhammad Sayyid Al Tantawi, president of Al Azhar University (the most prominent and authoritative institute of Islamic jurisprudence in the world) also approves of killing and maiming Christians, Jews, and other infidels. He added, “This is not my personal view. This what the Shari’a Law says, the law of Allah, the only valid law on the earth.” Source
Syed Abul Ala Maududi, founder of the Pakistani political party Jamaat-e-Islami, said non-Muslims have “absolutely no right to seize the reins of power in any part of God’s earth nor to direct the collective affairs of human beings according to their own misconceived doctrines.” If they do, “the believers would be under an obligation to do their utmost to dislodge them from political power and to make them live in subservience to the Islamic way of life.” Source
The Chief Justice of Saudi Arabia, Sheikh abdullah bin Muhammad bin Humaid teaches that “at first fighting was forbidden, then it was permitted, and after that it was made obligatory.” He clearly identifies two groups Muslims are obligated to fight: “(1) they who start fighting against Muslims, and (2) they who worship gods other than Allah.” Source
The most prominent Muslim scholar of the 20th century, Sheikh Abu Ala Maududi, stated in his book, Islamic Law and Constitution, on p. 262, that the Islamic State “seeks to mould every aspect of life and activity. In such a state no one can regard any field of his affairs as personal and private. Considered from this aspect the Islamic State bears a kind of resemblance to the Fascist and Communist states.” Maududi added “Islam wishes to destroy all states and governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and program of Islam.”Source
Hasan al-Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood (the largest international Islamic organization in the world) wrote, “Islam is an all-embracing concept which regulates every aspect of life, adjudicating on every one of its concerns and prescribing for it a solid and rigorous order.” Hasan al-Banna acknowledged there are many levels of jihad, including mere “interior spiritual struggle,” which he deemed the lowest level. According to al-Banna, waging warfare against the infidels is the highest expression of fidelity.Source
Hasan al-Banna also wrote, “it is a duty incumbent on every Muslim to struggle towards the aim of making every people Muslim and the whole world Islamic, so that the banner of Islam can flutter over the earth and the call of the Muezzin can resound in all the corners of the world.” Now remember, this is the founder of the largest international Muslim organization in the world.Source: Robert Spencer’s book, Stealth Jihad.
The Saudi Sheikh Saleh Al-Lehadan, head of the Supreme Judiciary Council, told Al Watan Daily, (March 25, 2008) “After getting rid of the Jews in our Arab land, we must turn to the Christians. They have three options: either they convert to Islam, or leave, or pay Jizia (protection taxes).” Source
In this regard, this blog must express the following point of convergence between Jews and Christians: they have more in common than most realize. While Jews view the Old Testament as their sacred and main Book, many Christians view the Old & New Testaments as theirs. Others stick to the New Testament. But no matter, besides, to each his own beliefs, unless forcing others to believe otherwise.The point being, there are many times when both religions intersect, and this should be one of those times.
NEVERTHELESS, despite ALL the death and destruction meted out by Islamists on behalf of Allah (recall the admonition at a recent interview, first the Saturday people, then the Sunday people), a preponderance of Churches (Synagogues fare little better) have been “turning the other cheek”. Instead of standing up for their co-religionists and banding together as one, what are they doing? NOTHING.
In fact, whatever the level of Islamic barbarism, extending even to cannibalism, it doesn’t move them to action, even when it is staring them in the face via credible sources and video uploads. What more do they require to make them scream: enough!
IF additional evidence is still ! necessary, well, let’s take a peek:
Exhibit Number One: Muslims enter Christian home, butcher husband, wife, and two children…gory enough?
Exhibit Number Two: Muslims kill Christians, bottle their blood, and sell It for $100,000 a piece to Saudis…yes, once again, Islam’s relationship to blood!
Exhibit Number Three: Islamic butchery manifests in America with Muslim immigrants…but why wouldn’t it?
Exhibit Number Four: Armenian Christian murdered for refusing to convert to Islam…as the Churches stand silent. Why?
Exhibit Number Five: “Had Allah allowed us to eat them we would have eaten them”…but he does! Haven’t they heard the “good” news…cannibalism is halal approved!
Exhibit Number Six: Bangladesh: Muslims murder young Christian who complained about anti-Christian jihad violence
Taking a break from the gory Christian carnage, let us turn our attention to their Jewish butchery, as such, when has it not been a factor?
And if one thinks that the Muslim have evolved into a modern mindset, one must remember what took place in Ramallah in which two Israeli soldiers were beaten and tortured to death, their bodies thrown down a window to the sounds of “Allahu Akbar”, and their flesh then chewed by the crowd.
And those of us who studied in Jewish day schools/high schools – and some who attended certain Christian schools may have absorbed the Old Testament and its related texts – surely came across many of the Jewish prophets.
In fact, having spent a good amount of time studying the “Nevi’im” – נְבִיאִים – the Jewish prophets, much of it still resonates. And capable students (even after many years) recall many of its glorious stories, one of which includes Ichabod. But what does this have to do with today’s commentary? Everything.
The text itself reinforces the idea of this “focal point,” as it becomes successively smaller in scope – moving from the panorama of the battlefield, through the city gates, towards the very intimate moment of birth, and ultimately to a portrait of one woman whose final words are,
“…the ark of God is taken.” The ark is known to contain the Written Torah, which includes the Ten Commandments, and the Torah scroll dictated by God to Moses. The second essential part of the Torah – that is, the Oral Torah – is said to have been embodied by Eli and Pinchas, who were responsible for its transmission to future generations. The wife of Pinchas understands that her father-in-law and husband are living transmitters of Torah. As such, their deaths create a depletion of national glory, a loss of leadership and a longing for the physical and spiritual sustenance of Torah.
The wife of Pinchas remains steadfast in her clarity that Torah is the lifeline of the Jewish nation, and that its dispossession amounts to no less than catastrophe. She regards her family tragedy as a part of this national loss and, through the name Ichabod, she establishes her newborn son as living reminder to his people of their unique connection to the Divine. Through the prism of Torah, the wife of Pinchas discerns what is everlasting about her husband, her father-in-law and her child. While the loss of her family no doubt causes personal pain, she reserves her deepest anguish for what their loss means to the Jewish people. As living personifications of Torah, Pinchas and Eli exemplified the spark of eternity in every Jew. The name “Ichabod” elegizes them on this level.
Found in the book Samuel 1, the word Ichabod means literally “inglorious” or “there is no glory”…and what could be more ignoble than Churches ignoring the slaughtering of millions of their own?
“Their blood cries out:” The silence of Christian churches in the face of worldwide slaughter of believers is a signpost screaming “Ichabod”

On the other hand, isn’t it interesting that a major operation undertaken by the IDF into Gaza, November 14, 2012 – to clean out the Hamas and assorted terror nests, yet the political leadership allowed them to live, to regroup and to fight another day- bespeaks of an insanity among Jewish leaders too.
In Israel, who among us didn’t understand its Hebrew operational name, coined amud anan…עמוד ענן…pillar of cloud…pillar of fire…pillar of defense…and where it came from? The Book of Exodus 14:19-20, that’s where.
The question cries out from the heavens: have our respective leaders – from the Christian and Jewish communities – learned nothing about what it means to be free and deserving of said freedoms?
So whether or not one believes in the Old, New or a combination of Testaments, it is excruciatingly clear: without putting out the fires, not only does one go against what is right and just, but one then becomes an accomplice to future acts of barbarism, Silence IS agreement.
Wherefore art thou – those who hold themselves up as leaders – when it matters the most? Neither here, there or anywhere!
