Where were my tears for the Middle-East victims?

Muslims, Christians, Jihad, Palestine, Peace, Death, Life, Forgiveness, Reconciliation

Since the last massive attack on Gaza by Israel in 2014, I have been very conflicted as an Israel-loving believer: I found that I was rationalizing a true massacre happening across the world from Canada, into an eschatological biblical frame that had been part of the Christian narrative for as long as I remember. Then I saw the images, I heard the cries, I stood in disbelief that I could have fragmented at this point.

brother and sisterI prayed that my eyes would be opened, and my heart to be softened toward the poor in this world, both those in our midst (look around) and those knocking on our doors (look abroad). I longed for the Spirit of Jesus to infuse me with His light and with His peace, so that I would not fear fear itself, but receive and give His peace, for He doesn’t give peace like the world does (through force, violence, bribe or compromise).

Compassion toward the Jewish people has never wavered in me. But something else had taken place with it, an uneasy blanket acceptance of any and all acts of violence committed toward the Palestinians for decades. Only recently have I started to understand the tragedy that was developing inside my heart and mind – I was seeing people as symbols, not as human beings. Tragically, that is something I had been priding myself of not doing, yet here I am…

So I started watching, listening, really trying to see things from the population’s perspective, rather than FOX, CNN, Al Jazeera, Hamas, Abou Mazen, etc. Certainly there has been much criticism toward Israel, but mainly in a right and wrong paradigm. However there is more to the situation than we could ever dream to partition correctly. I needed to plunge into the human experience, something impossible to do myself, but I could listen to others who had.

Islam unveiled, USlam prophesied

(I share this in the hope that we will (hopefully) find ways to think outloud together at some point, and connect with a more Christlike narrative and attitude toward the turmoil we find ourselves in on the threshold of 2016.

Reacting to fear-mongering by having a message that is opposite to the discourse of alarmist politicians and media, is not entirely what will help this generation defeat the IDEOLOGY of Islam, among other things. But by the look of things, we are potentially entering decades of darkness, where we will need the higher eternal values of love and hope. We need to be able to preserve these, and move in our generation with open eyes and lucidly surrendered hearts).

QUOTE: “In August 2003, Anis Shorrosh, a Christian Arab-American who emigrated from Arab-controlled Jerusalem in January 1967 and author of ”Islam Revealed” and ”The True Furqan,” wrote an analysis of Islam’s invasion of America, and the agenda of Islamists and visible methods to take over America by the year 2020,” and asked ”Will Americans continue to sleep through this invasion as they did when we were attacked on 9/11?” Shorrosh is a member of the Oxford Society of Scholars, has traveled in 76 countries, and is a lecturer and producer of TV documentaries. ”Islam Revealed” is a bestseller in its eighth printing (as of August 2003).

Are you a RELIGION if you have a court of (Shariah) law?

Radical Muslims demand the right to run their own local Shariah tribunals, DELIVERING & EXECUTING sentences, in America, Europe, everywhere they gather in communities…

THIS WOULD REQUIRE
– an enforcable Shariah Legal Code;
– a State-approved operating tribunal with Shariah judges assigning guilt or innocence;
– judges would have right to deliver sentences and order punishment to be executed, often in public (to serve as deterrent/example);
– Shariah-mandated executioners,
– enforcing a separate legislation to the people in their district, regardless of religion or beliefs;
– a Shariah police force patrolling the area and giving citations or arresting Muslims and non-Muslims alike, forcing them to appear in their court to be judged (more than likely without non-Muslim legal representation), etc.

What this means is that this kind of Islam would operate as a political state government – NOT A RELIGION.

PSA: STILL, IT IS NO REASON OR EXCUSE TO HARASS MUSLIMS (OR PEOPLE YOU THINK MAY BE MUSLIMS BECAUSE OF THEIR SKIN COLOR) ON THE STREET OR ANYWHERE ELSE – . DON’T DO IT! 🙂
