The Prophetic locusts have arrived in Oklahoma
According to AOL News a 15-year-old British girl was arrested in London on suspicion of inciting religious hatred after she allegedly set fire to an English-language copy of the Koran and posted footage of the incident on Facebook. AOL reports that Under British law, if an adult is found guilty of religious hatred--something no one has been convicted of since the law was introduced in 2006--they can face up to seven years in prison, a fine or both. However, it is not clear what kind of penalty a minor found guilty of the charge would incur. With the pressing of Islamic colonization in Europe there is a continuously growing gap between religious freedom, religious free speech and the militancy of Islam.
This is a phenomena that could soon come to the United States. Islam, a tyrannical political system disguised as a religion, is beginning to anchor its Sharia Law system in America. On November 2, Oklahoma voters approved by nearly a 70% margin a ballot measure blocking judges from considering Islamic or international law when making a ruling. Within a week, Oklahoma's Council on American-Islamic Relations got a judge to do exactly what the voters had feared--U.S. District Court Judge Vicki Miles-LeGrange ruled that the measure would be suspended until a hearing on November 22. Then she extended the ban another week.
Muneer Awad, executive director of CAIR in Oklahoma, said the ruling "is a reminder of the strength of our nation's legal system and the protections it grants to religious minorities. We are humbled by this opportunity to show our fellow Oklahomans that Muslims are their neighbors and that we are committed to upholding the US Constitution and promoting the benefits of a pluralistic society." But Awad, whose lawyer said the ban's supporters were "xenophobic merchants of fear and hate," believes his Constitutional rights are being violated by banning Sharia Law from being considered in court. Awad says he lives his life by Sharia Law and that everything he does will be forbidden from consideration by the courts.
Awad says he wants to uphold the Constitution. Yet he wants the Constitution, which is the Supreme Law of the Land, to yield to Sharia Law. Christians understand that while striving to live their lives according to the scriptures, they are to obey the laws of the lands in which they live. Muslims, however, want their law established as the Supreme law. It happened in Africa, is happening in Europe and America is next. This is called colonization. Jeremiah 51:14 says of a nation very similar to today's America, "I shall fill thee with men, as with locusts; and they shall lift up a battle cry against thee." Take heed, it is better to fight this now without bloodshed than to be forced into a future, more historical, armed conflict with Islamists.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
