The consequences of accepting deceit
While most of the Islamic rhetoric is focussed on the "Great American Satan" and "Illegitimate Israel," what has happened in Egypt over the past two weeks indicates a radical change in American policy toward Islam. The diplomatic signals are clear--a willingness to work with, even hold talks, with the Muslim Brotherhood, the godfather of surrogate terrorist activities; the demand that the Egyptian ruler step down in response to protests; the guise of democracy that is covering the true nature of the move by Islamists in Egypt; the ignoring of advice from the most experienced democracy and faithful ally in the Middle East--Israel. This American presidency is Islamist-friendly and is endangering both Israel and America.
It seems all too pat. Public opinion would never support an American president working toward an Islamic Caliphate. The Islamists cannot appear too chummy with their redeemer, so they ratchet up the rhetoric against America. The president claims over and over again that he is a Christian, but denies the very deity of Christ in saying that there are more ways to heaven than just one. All the while he runs up insurmountable debt using illogical theories that spending far more than you have will somehow magically bring your finances into balance. And at every corner, he challenges Israel to give its land to terrorists in the name of peace--even making Israel's Prime Minister exit the White House through an ally of trash.
The American people have been took. There is no other explanation. We have been sold a bill of goods and if we truly want to know what is going on, we have to close our ears to the rhetoric and open our eyes to the actions. Jesus said in Matthew 7:15,16, "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits." It is astounding that the well-educated masses in the world's most prosperous nation would not catch on to the reality that spending does not bring prosperity; that denying the deity of Christ does not make a Christian; that supporting Islamic terrorists does not bring peace; that making allies exit through trash is not honor.
Israel's Labor Party leader Benjamin Ben-Eliezer told IDF Radio: "We learn from history. We remember what was said when Carter proposed that the Shah of Iran give up nicely and allow Khomeini to take his place. In Gaza, too, when the Americans came in, they supervised the democratic elections [via which Hamas came into power]. If there are elections in Egypt the way the Americans want, I will be surprised if the Muslim Brotherhood does not win. This will be a new Middle East--radical, Islamic and extremist...I think the Americans still don't realize the extent of the catastrophe into which they have pushed the Middle East." Al-Takeyya is Islam's term for lying to advance Islam. I wonder if its pronounced "I'll Take Ya" in Chicago.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
