The New Dimension to the Threat of Islam

By Murray T. Bass · Feb. 18, 2013

The greatest threat we are facing as Americans and Christians is Islam. I believe the new dimension to that threat is Barack Obama. The major political parties are complicit through their neglect. Obama has consistently supported the Muslim Brotherhood. He has supported the overthrow of non-Muslim leaders. He has sought to replace them with deadly Islamic leadership who dominate the people with fear and the threat of death. The solution is worse and more freedom stifling than the problem.

• He failed to authorize additional protection for our diplomats in Benghazi after increased security had been requested many times. That failure resulted in the death of 4 loyal veteran diplomats.

• He is providing advanced military weapons to Islamic regimes resulting in an increased threat to Israel and the non-Islamic peoples of the area.

• He entered a war without he consent of Congress – a war in which we had no direct security interests. The obvious reason for doing so was to help the Muslim Brotherhood in their takeover efforts – efforts which have been highly successful in earlier supported uprisings.

• He has consistently assisted the enemy in Afghanistan by publicly announcing new American strategies so that the enemy might prepare for it – or wait us out. He prohibited troops from firing on targets in villages, making them sitting ducks for enemy gunfire.

• He has allowed an estimated 70,000 Muslims to cross our borders illegally and has made no effort to find and deport them. Official estimates of illegal Muslims residing in The United States exceeds one million.

• He has excused Muslims from complying with provisions of Obamacare.

His acts have consistently favored Muslim interests over those of the United States.

Have you read the Quran and accounts of the history of Islam? Islam is a false religion based on the writings of a false prophet using a self-created false god. Islam was created by Mohammed about 1400 years ago. Allah was transformed from a moon god of Mohammed's tribe (one of approximately 350 being worshipped by Arabs at the time.) He created Allah in his own image. Mohammed was a gang leader whose gangs attacked and robbed villages, killing the men and raping the women. The Quran has many references to Booty from these raids and that Allah should be given a share of the Booty. Mohammed considered women as property whose role was to provide pleasure to men and bear children without pleasure for the women themselves. They were and are now sexually maimed. While they refer to it as female circumcision, cutting off a female child's clitoris is far more than removing the foreskin from a male's penis. It is designed to deny women pleasure in sex. Women are typically excluded from services at the mosque, relegated to household duties. Women are stoned to death for adultery while men are allowed to “marry” prostitutes temporarily. Men may have up to 8 wives. Men are allowed to “buy” infant girls to become their wives. The marriage must be consummated by the time the young girl is 9 years old. If the man returns the girl to the family, she may be killed to salvage the honor of the family. As they say down South, “And them is Islam's good points.” The bad points follow:

Islam openly declares in the Quran that its objective is to be the only religion in the world governed by Sharia, Islamic law. Jihad is one of the “pillars” upon which Islam is built. Every Muslim has the obligation to practice Jihad either as a warrior or in some other way. If they do not they become identified as hypocrites, just as are Christians and Jews, subject to death. Jihad is not a choice. It is an obligation. Also any Muslim who rejects Islam is subject to the same penalty. Muslims must remain loyal to Islamic law. Consequently, they cannot integrate into American society because they cannot pledge allegiance to or to protect and defend the constitution against all enemies, foreign or domestic. Muslims are permitted to lie in the interests of Jihad.

Look around America. Look and see literally thousands of pockets of Muslims who are not permitted to integrate into our society. They are living here under Islamic law. Their “religion” is not as much a religion as a system of laws. These groups are aggressively pursuing the “right” to live under Islamic law instead of constitutional law, or local laws for that matter. We are gradually being overcome by a theocracy which has vowed to kill us or make us pay a fee to live under their rule. Christians and Jews are specifically marked for death.

Did you know that the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan is a puritanical Islamic theocracy governed by strict Sharia law? Picture yourself under the absolute rule of a village Mullah, the female members of your family sexually maimed, your daughters purchased for marriage in infancy and their marriage consummated before they are nine years old. No education for females and only the Quran for males. No value for life. That is fundamental Islam. That is what is in store for our grandkids if we do not protect ourselves from it.

So what do we do? I think we have no other choice than to believe them when they tell us they plan either to kill us or keep us as fee paying slaves. That has been their plan unchanged for 1400 years. We must seek them out and deport them if they are not citizens. If they have actively refused to obey our constitution and oppose it instead of defending it, we try them and convict them of sedition, subversion or perhaps treason. Immigration quotas for Muslims should be zero. If oppressed Muslims in other countries need safe havens, help them find refuge in other Islamic countries. But not here.

Complete and utter rubbish. The religion you describe is not Islam but some twisted version that you yourself invented. There is so much falsehood and fabrication in your article that I don't know where to begin. I just hope the readers that you are trying to pursued are not easily misled.

Simon, My sources are the Quran and authoritative sites on the web, Wikipedia for example. My other sources have been the news reports of Islamic sects killing one another in great numbers, executing children, killing girl children to save family honor. One wouldhave to be blind and deaf not to see those things. Thank you for proving my statement that Muslims are permitted to lie to defend the indefensible. . Come on, tell us another lie.

Abolaban in Cairo said:

Really strange article!

He does not know Islam. He is treating the subject as if Islam was born a couple of years ago!!

He must think about Islam as it transferred people from leading camels towards leading civilizations in less than 300 years instead of thinking in a civilization that is leading "gays and lesbians" in the same time it is leading missions towards Mars.

I think that there must be some logic in what I've said.

Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at 6:55 AM

Murray Bass in California replied:

Abolaban, Those of us who have read the Quran and its history really do understand Islam the way it is . Not the false way you would have us believe it to be. The doctrine and purpose of Islam have remained unchanged in 1400 years. You would impose yur beliefs on all paople . Or take their lives. And that is confirmed by your actrions. Stop trying to deceive us. By the way, are you a part of the Muslim Brotherhood which now imposes its will on the people of Egypt?

Mac and Murray, I have read their unholy book several times.It was given to me by a practicing muslim. As you two know, there is not an inkling of mercy,love or forgiveness in that book. There is only kill,kill, kill, because thats what THEY want. When our guys go "over there" they kill as many as they can, and come home, without exception our guys call them for what they are, animals. Rabid animals. There is no reasoning with them, for they are so filled with hate. I know you guys know this, I just wanted to put my 2 cents in the frey.

T. Edward Price in Missouri said:

"The greatest threat we are facing as Americans and Christians is Islam."
Not even close. The greatest threat Christians, here in America and elsewhere, face, is the rotting decay of the modern church, fed by the disease of antinomianism. The evil that is Islam, would pose no threat whatsoever to Christians,had we not abandoned dominion, what was once referred to as Christendom, and replaced it with "mere Christianity".

"He failed to authorize additional protection for our diplomats in Benghazi after increased security had been requested many times. That failure resulted in the death of 4 loyal veteran diplomats." No argument there, but what about the Israelis murdering 34 U.S sailors and Marines, and wounding 171 more, in an attack on a U.S. Navy vessel in international waters. Doesn't that merit even a little outrage?

"Did you know that the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan is a puritanical Islamic theocracy governed by strict Sharia law?"
So what! Exactly how is this a threat to Christianity and America? All governments are theocracies of one god or another, such as our deity WE THE PEOPLE! This is nothing but fearmongering, focusing our attention on some fictitious bogeyman (in this case, Islam), while the real enemies sneak into our pulpits, waging war on true Christianity from within. From a Biblical standpoint, there is NO SUCH THING as "radical Islam". ALL Islam, as well as Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Humanism, Atheism, and any other "ism", is non Christian and, therefore by definition, anti-Christian.
"The Quran is indeed a filthy, vile unholy book. But, it can't hold a candle to the Talmud, which is, without a doubt, the most viciously anti-Christian piece of filth to ever be written. Yet, it is taught in synagogues, just as the Quran is taught in mosques. We need to stop assisting the American empire in propping up tin horn dictators who later become our enemies, and return to the task of establishing Christendom, once again shining as that "City Upon a Hill".

For those of you who may not know, T.Edward is celebrating the 45th anniversary of Israels attack on the U.S.S. Liberty. It was during the 6 day war. The Liberty was parked off the coast of Egypt monitorig communications. Israel says it mistook the Liberty for an Egyptian ship and attacked it. killing 3 and wounding 171. They apologized, paaid reparations to the families and to the United States.. Of coourse that doesn't restore the lives or make the bodies whole. But it does give T.Edward the opportunity to inject a big dose of anti-semitism to distract from the real issue, radical Islam. By the way T. Edward, just how big was the Islamic reparations bill to the Unted States and the families of victims of te 9-11 attacks? NOTHING!!
My reference to the Taliban had two purposes. First, to remindfolks that the Taliban is represeentative of Islam. And second that the actions of the Taliban illustrate what fundamental Ialamist are free to do. .Take your blinders off T.Edward. Take your anti-semitism somewere else.

Ted R. Weiland in Nebraska replied:

Murray, why resort to labeling Mr. Price as an anti-semite? I found that most people who do so, do so because it's easier than addressing the facts provided by the person with whom they're debating, which makes it nothing more than an ad hominem attack. Instead, I would like to hear what you have to say in refutation to Mr. Prices' points.

I have also found that most people who accuse others of being an anti-semite, don't even know what the terms means. Unless you know what a semite is, you cannot know what an anti semite is. An anti semite (actually anti Shemite) is someone who is anti the descendants of Shem (first-born son of Noah). I don't find anything in Mr. Prices' post that says he's anti-Shemite.

However, because the Arab people (via Ishmael, son of Abraham) are also Shemites, you condemn yourself by your own standard employed against Mr. Price.

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 at 1:23 PM

Murray Bass in California replied:

Ted. I hope you are well.
Your response to my comment about Mr Price being anti semitic was probably tchnically accurate but neither realistic nor from today's vernacular.
Mr. Price was blatantly anti-Israeli, call it what you like. He is saying that the Israelis are worse than the radical Islamiic tribes. You and I know that isn't the truth. The hate and anger and deceit in his statement is not worthy of debate. However I am addressing it now. . I am surprised that you would defend such a position as Mr. Price has taken..
Be well

Ernie Lowe in Michigan replied:

Murray. After seeing the Weiland/Price tag team on your site and on multiple other patriot/pro-con sites, I suggest you rethink your gentle response to Mr. Weiland. Check him out, I did. Go to his real website, "missiontoisrael.org", as well as google it and his name. With some diggin, you will find that he is an anti-semite (anti-israel) and a "christian" Identity preacher. His whole "kingdom ambassador" scheme on his site and elsewhere is to recruit his follows (think Edward Price) to follow him from site to site supporting him while he bashes the Founding Fathers with lies and trashes the United States Constitution that I swore an oath to defend. I enjoy reading good Patriot sites like yours, but you guys have got to wake up to the fact that we have enemies both foreign (Islam) and domestic (Islam, illegals, and the Weilands and Pete Peters from the fringe). Beware of wolves in sheeps clothing! Keep up the fight!

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 at 3:51 PM

Ted R. Weiland in Nebraska replied:

Murray, thank you for your concern for my health and any prayers offered on my behalf. They've been heard! I'm doing much better. In fact, well enough that I'm (right now) able and looking forward to sharing the podium at gun rally with Larry Pratt (Executive Director of Gun Owners of the America), Sheriff Richard Mack, Stewart Rhodes (Founder and President of Oath Keepers), and Pastor John Weaver in a couple of weeks in Missouri.

As for Mr. Price's post. Please read it again, and I think you'll see that he did not say anything disparaging about the Jews as a people but, instead, about their religious book of faith - the Babylonian Talmud. If you know anything about the Talmud, you would know that his statements are accurate.

Furthermore, Judaism is NOT the religion of the Old Testament Israelites, as so many people believe it is. It is the antithesis of Yahweh's morality as codified in His commandments, statutes, and judgments on almost every point. (For example, today's partial-birth infanticide laws were taken right out of the Talmud, almost word for word.) Judaism is, in fact, one and same as the traditions of the elders that Christ so vehemently denounced while here on earth (Matthew 15:6-9, etc.) and which was, circa 500 AD, codified into the Babylonian Talmud.

Exposing the Talmud as the most antichrist, anrtichristian, immoral piece of literature on the planet is not antisemitism, but anti-Talmud. Most Jews do not know what's in the Talmud so being anti-Talmud, does not make one an antisemite.

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 at 3:53 PM

Ted R. Weiland in Nebraska replied:

Murray, in response to Ernie's reply to you. I'm an open book. I HOPE you will check out missiontoisrael.org. You will find at least three different books (available online) devoted to challenging the claim that the majority of today's Jew are Biblical Israelites. If that's antisemitism, then you'll have to accuse many Jews of being antisemites as well because I quote many of them, who admit themselves that they are not Israelites or even Judahites.

For example: the first chapter of the 1980 Jewish Almanac is entitled (now, get this) "Identity Crisis." The very first sentence reads: "Strictly speaking, it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a 'Jew' or to call a contemporary Jew an “Israelite” or a 'Hebrew.'” (Richard Siegel and Carl Rheins, eds., “Identity Crisis,” The Jewish Almanac, (New York, NY: Bantam Books, 1980) p. 3.)

The same is admitted to their encyclopedias (The Jewish Encyclopedia, the Universal Jewish Encyclopedia, the Standard Jewish Encyclopedia, and Encyclopedia Judaica, etc.) and by many of their own historians and anthropologists.

Murray Bass in California replied:

Ted, I don't believe we can afford to ignore the immediate deadly threat of radical Islam for the more academic "threats" in the rabbinical oral law from history. thousands of Rabbis over hundreds of years have contributed to it.
I frankly consider Mr. Prices introduction of anti Isreal conjecture as a dangerous distraction. If he has his own agenda topic, he shoud contribute a commentary and not interfere with the subject matter of others__mine inparticular. We should be concerned with saving our lives and all of Christianity now. I do not seee any immediate threat to our lives or to Christianity from the people who call themselves Jews.
Do you believe tha traical Islam does not represent a threat? Don't you believe as I do that their jihad speifically seeks out Christians for death? Haven't you read the accounts of Coptic Christians being slaughtered by Muslims? . Don't you believe that the Million Christians who fled to Syria are now in danger from the Muslim Brotherhood if Mr. Obama gets his way? Why are we talking at all about something my essay had nothing to do with. ? I guess the question I have to ask you and Mr. Price. Are you supporting radical Islam or Christians and Christianity? That's a loaded question.

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 at 5:08 PM

Ted R. Weiland in Nebraska replied:

Murray, I think you've missed Mr. Price's principle point: After quoting you with the following: "The greatest threat we are facing as Americans and Christians is Islam." He responded by saying: "Not even close. The greatest threat Christians, here in America and elsewhere, face, is the rotting decay of the modern church, fed by the disease of antinomianism. The evil that is Islam, would pose no threat whatsoever to Christians,had we not abandoned dominion, what was once referred to as Christendom, and replaced it with 'mere Christianity.'"

I agree with his point completely. Let me make his point a little differently and see if it doesn't clear things up for you: If Christians today were not, for the most part, rejecting Yahweh's morality as codified in His commandments, statutes, and judgments (including the First Commandment ), neither Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, etc., etc. would be flourishing in our country, let alone a threat.

This apostasy formerly and nationally began when the late 18th-century Christians allowed Amendment 1's polytheistic provision for the freedom of religion (an unequivocal violation of the First Commandment) to become the law of the land.

I hope this puts both his and my position in perspective.

I'm confident he was not attacking you, but using your statement to express the cause for why Islam is found prospering in our country.

The entire point of what Mr. Price and I have written is to denounce not only Islam (which Mr. Price did in his post), but any and everything that opposes monotheistic Christianity. I would hope that you would join us in this.

If you're referring to another question(s), please repeat it so I can answer it.

I do not have an anti-Israel agenda, I have an anti-God agenda, where ever its to be found.

Murray Bass in California replied:

OK Ted, here are the questions I aked that you didn't answer.
1. Don't you believe (the Quran) that Jihad (Radical Islam) seeks out Christians for death?
2.Havenn't you read about Coptic Christians being slaughtere by Muslims?
3.. Don't youj believe that the million Christians who fled to Syria are now in danger frome the Muslim Brotherhood --if mr obama gets his way?
4.. Why are we talking aout something that has notheing to do withthe subject of my esaay?
I numberedtham so that it would be easy for you to respond.

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 at 6:34 PM

Ted R. Weiland in Nebraska replied:

My apologies. I thought my entire explanation answered those questions.

My direct answer to the first three questions is yes, I do. However, like Mr. Price, I do not agree with your statement that "The greatest threat we are facing as Americans and Christians is Islam." The greatest threat is what allows Islam to continue to flourish here in America. For example, if the First Amendment had instead been replaced with the First Commandment, the Fort Hood massacre at the hands of Nidal M. Hasan would have never occurred because Muslims could never be in America's military under the First Commandment.

My answer to number 4 is that Mr. Price's and my responses are, in fact, about what you stated in your essay. We're taking exception to something you wrote that we believe is at the very core of the issue.

It would appear you're taking this as a personal attack. I assure you that's not the case.

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 at 7:48 PM

Murray Bass in California replied:

No Ted, I don't take it personally. You have convinced me that you are living somewhere other than this world. You are the hammerand everything you see is a nail. You have no contact with reality. I am not angry with you for playing your anti semitic agenda on my essay responses. You just can't help it and I feel sorry for you. You are just unable to see anything but your own unrealistic agenda.When the radicals put the gun to your head you'll die saying "It's the Jews, It's the Jews" Pity. You seem to be quite a talented guy. Tunnel vision (in your case a sweetheart straw) has disabled your intellect irreparably . . No more discussion. I do hope youhave a good life anyway. Don't stick the straw in your eye. Goodbye. Now I have to remind folks of what this was about.

Murray Bass in California replied:

At other times in other wars, Ted's anti-constitutinal rantings would have been considered seditious. He should be careful of what he says ad how he says it.
Returning to the commentary. Here is a brief summary, uncluttered by anti-semitism. President Obama behaves like a Muslim. He has supported Islam over American intrests consistently. In the Arab Spring, Libya Afghanistan an Pakistan The killings in Afghanistan demonstrate the true nature of Islam. From the time of Mohammed until the present, Islam has treated women as property,maimed the so that the cannot enjoy sex, sell infant daughters to child abusers and may kill the girl if returned by the buyer. Every Muslim is obligated to further Jihad/ Not a choice.Jihad is a pillar of Islam . If they refuse they may be condemned to deah as are sll Christians and Jews Islam does not value life and regularly and systematically kill each other in large groups We must protect ourselves against those who would kill us. Seek out and deport illegals, Deport those immigrants who refuse to obey our constitution and demand to live by Islamic law (Shariah) Immigration quotas for Muslims should be zero. Seek out and destroy those Muslim leaders who plan attacks against us wherever they are .
If you want more , reread the commentary. In short, do whatever is necessary to protect ourselves and our families from those who would kill us.

T. Edward Price in Missouri replied:

Mr. Bass, you have obviously been unable to comprehend the intent, both implied and explicit, in my comment, and in Mr. Weiland's honorable replies. We can all disagree, even vehemently, yet still engage in intelligent and civil discourse. However, when we check our logic at the door, and engage in emotionally driven rhetoric, and ad hominem attacks, due simply to a perceived threat to our deeply ingrained bias, we lose credibility, and therefore, lose the argument. You accused me of anti-semitism. I am guilty of no such thing. I am merely anti ANYONE who is anti-Christ. You rail against threats that only exist because we have, for all practical purposes, outlawed Christianity. With true Christian men taking responsibility and working for the Kingdom, absolutely NO threat could prevail. That you condemn threats against Christianity, yet employ anti-Christian slander against me, and Mr. Weiland, speaks volumes concerning your own heart. You accused me of hate, anger, and deceit.
Since there was NOTHING in my post that would indicate ANY of those three to be true, you have set yourself up as Yahweh, able to read my heart. To reiterate, there is NO SUCH THING as "radical Islam". That would Imply that some practitioners of Islam are better than others. ALL Islam is radically ant-Christ at its very core. To single out "radical Islam" puts emphasis on the degree, not the filthy religion. That same mentality, ever so prevalent in today's false Right, Neo-Conservative camp, also condemns Christians who DARE to be radical in the practice of their faith. That mindset would encourage us to be moderate and middle-of-the-road in our belief. We all Know that Christ would rather us be hot or cold. That sounds like an endorsement of "radical" to me. You have falsely accused me, as well as Mr. Weiland. I can not speak for him, but I absolutely forgive you in the name of Yeshua the Christ. But I refuse to fear Islam, Atheism, Humanism, or any other "ism". Whatever we fear, we give that entity the power to control us. I REFUSE to fear ANYONE but Yahweh. All Christians should do the same.
Blessings

T. Edward. I admit I am not clear on one thing. Are Yeshua the Christ and Jesus of Nazaaareth one and the same? Help me understand.

Thursday, February 21, 2013 at 4:06 PM

T. Edward Price in Missouri replied:

Mr. Bass, that is an honest question, and an easy one to answer. Yeshua is the Hebrew "given" name for Jesus, and since it is the name He was actually called at the time He walked the Earth, it is a personal preference, nothing else. It is the name the Jews of His day called Him, and it is just a way of honoring Him. He is indeed the same Christ Jesus to whom you refer, and perhaps I should consider my audience (not necessarily you, but your readers) when using His Hebrew name, lest I put forth a stumbling block. If I am guilty of that I am sorry. I pray that this answer is worthy.
Blessings in Christ Jesus

Many of those who posted comments here would do well to follow your commendable example.

Couple of points:

According to the interviews of the sailors that were there, the number is 37, not 34, the Israelis did not "make a mistake", it was intentional to make it look like the Arabs did it and the entire attack was covered up by LBJ and his administration.

The Ambassador to Libya was sacrificed by his own. He wasn't the "loyal" American as portrayed in the article. He played an important part in the Qaddafi over through and resultant execution, but not for "support" of the "Muslim Brotherhood". This was done for world reserve status of U.S. currency versus Qaddafi's competing Dinar 100% backed by gold, high quality Libyan oil, it's gold and it's ten years in development underground aquifer system.

Mr. Bass, outside of your points about Islam and it's doctrines (now, did you hear? I said outside), there are many other "things that just ain't so" in your article that would take too long to go into here.
