Radicalizing or Radicals Rising?

Radicals Rising Leads to Sunset Over Cairo

A serious media mistake is routinely using the term “radicalizing” to explain jihad. “Radicals rising” is a more accurate term. DEBKAfile’s sources report that large sums of Iranian petrodollars have reached the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood and radicalized its message to the Egyptian people. It is true that Iran’s propaganda is a radicalized message, but it finds ready acceptance in young Muslim minds because of generations of indoctrination.
It is beyond the Western mind’s frame of reference to accept that Islamists hold their position logically from the beginning. Since we are the product of a Judeo/Christian heritage, Islamic jihad doesn’t make sense. We are taught to love our enemies, they are taught to kill their enemies (which by the way is defined as all non-Muslims and apostate Muslims). Psalm 83 (below) clearly declares their opposition to the God of Israel.

Entire generations of young Muslims have been taught from pre-school to hate and kill Jews and Christians. That is when they were radicalized, not between weeks four and five of the Egyptian revolution (or fill in any other Muslim revolt). Koranic basic doctrine teaches that chaos and destruction are the means of overthrowing the infidels or as in Egypt’s case, the apostate Westernized Muslim states. The fundamental Islamic prophecy of the last days requires chaos and destruction to usher in the final Caliph and conquest of the whole world.

Therefore, what we have is radicals rising up to fulfill the apocalyptic vision. It is logically within the literal reading of their holy texts. Yet, the media persists in feigning shock when what they insisted was a democracy movement suddenly “became radicalized”. It is the only conclusion that makes sense to the naive Western humanist. Everything the media believes rejects the idea of anyone actually choosing to die for their god. It does not compute, therefore they were “radicalized” somehow. Even the Ft. Hood shooter must have been “radicalized” because he could not possibly believe in such radical jihad all by himself.

The 9-11 suicide jihadists were not mysteriously radicalized while standing in line at the airport. They worked hard and prepared for a long time on an unthinkable plot to hijack airplanes and fly them into skyscrapers. To us it was unthinkable; to them it was brilliant and perfectly logical.

The truth is this. It is not the “bad” Muslims rising up, but faithful literalist Muslims doing what their imams are preaching every Friday at the mosques. Good Muslims are faithful, bad Muslims (from their viewpoint) are Westernized or modernized and are therefore unfaithful and even apostate.

Pray for the Muslim hordes to turn from the god of Islam to find Yehovah, God of Israel and Yeshua haMeshiach (Jesus the Messiah), the Son of God.

Consider the contrast between the nature of Islam and the nature of our Judeo/Christian heritage.

Nature of Islamic Heritage:

Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold Your peace, And do not be still, O God! For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; And those who hate You have lifted up their head. They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, And consulted together against Your sheltered ones. They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” For they have consulted together with one consent; They form a confederacy against You (Psalm 83:1-5 NKJV).

Nature of Judeo/Christian Heritage:

If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would be of no value whatsoever. Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged. It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Love will last forever (1 Corinthians 13:3-8 NLT).

Pray for the PEACE of Jerusalem. And that the glory of Yehovah will FILL the WHOLE EARTH, as the hearts of men are turned to follow and obey and receive Yeshua ha Meshiach as Lord and Savior. HalleluYAH.
