It makes me wonder if where I live, Oregon, there are Muslims who would do such terrible things.  Our world just is not a safe place to be anymore.....even in a country setting. - cj

There may be. But, it is important that when we look at a Muslim that we not judge their hearts. Many in America do not subscribe to such things.

Islam group urges forest fire jihad
September 7, 2008

AUSTRALIA has been singled out as a target for "forest jihad" by a group of Islamic extremists urging Muslims to deliberately light bushfires as a weapon of terror.

US intelligence channels earlier this year identified a website calling on Muslims in Australia, the US, Europe and Russia to "start forest fires", claiming "scholars have justified chopping down and burning the infidels' forests when they do the same to our lands".

The website, posted by a group called the Al-Ikhlas Islamic Network, argues in Arabic that lighting fires is an effective form of terrorism justified in Islamic law under the "eye for an eye" doctrine.

The posting — which instructs jihadis to remember "forest jihad" in summer months — says fires cause economic damage and pollution, tie up security agencies and can take months to extinguish so that "this terror will haunt them for an extended period of time".

Muslim violence continues in Nigeria. At least 29 people have been killed in four attacks. The Islamist Boko Haram group has said it carried out several attacks. They have warned all southerners who are mostly Christian and animist to leave the mainly Muslim north of Nigeria. More than 500 people have been killed by the group over the past year. source

I have often quoted this, but believe we need to post it.  Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has on a number of occasions threatened to wipe Israel off the face of the  map. This AP video is from June 2008.

Last month United States Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said that an Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities could “consume the Middle East in a confrontation and a conflict that we would regret."   The comment has led Israel and the U.S. into discussions as to how far the U.S. will allow Iran to go before taking military action. source

It appears that the winds are wanting to blow, but God still holds them  back.

It seems like a military confrontation with Iran is inevitable. When that happens the world and the US will never be the same. Probably everything will then fast forward. Not that it isn't already moving rapidly, its just that it is not obvious to everybody.

There are some who teach that Islam is the King of the North in Daniel 11. There are others who teach that Islam is the King of the South. I am inclined to agree with one or the other. If so, the end is very near. Islam is seen clearly in Revelation in the last days. That is enough  to cause one to study this subject earnestly.

Maybe I am missing something but I don't see how Islam can convincingly usurp the position of King of the north as it does not come close to presenting God to the Christian's world with the papacy coming out on top.  The pope is rapidly gaining ground as thee world religious leader. If the US is to be the workhorse in convincing and implementing religious dogma it seems to fit alot better in my mind that since the papacy is behind it all that it would be the King of the North. While this may seem like a matter of perspective isn't the papacy and the professedly Christian world viewed as the savior ?

I think you may be right, but there were and are a number of very good Christian students that disagree. Uriah Smith being one. We have a topic in the End Time Prophecies where this is being discussed.

On August 17, Two weeks ago, a young Pakistani girl was arrested and accused of blasphemy, she was found with what said to be a burned Koran. The charges are disputed. The young girl is reported to be retarded. There are many protests from other countries as well as from Pakistan. Muslim blasphemy laws are used to persecute those of other religious faiths. Today, Islamabad police arrested a Muslim cleric accused of planting evidence against the Christian girl. The arrest of Khalid Jadoon, followed the claims by one of his aides that he had put the evidence in her bag to strengthen blasphemy charges against her. He apparently wanted to expel the minority Christian community from the area. abibleanswer.org

ISLAMIC BLOC: WE TOLD YOU THIS WOULD HAPPEN IF YOU 'HURT THE RELIGIOUS SENTIMENTS OF THE MUSLIMS' [EXCERPTS]

The organization representing the world's Islamic nations on [September 12] condemned the attacks on U.S. diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt, saying it had consistently warned that "the abuse of freedom of expression" in a way that "hurt the religious sentiments of Muslims" could have grave consequences.

Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu definitively linked Tuesday's violence to Muslim anger over an amateur satirical movie critical of the prophet Mohammed, despite indications that radical elements may have used protests against the film as a cover to launch an armed assault.

According to an OIC statement, Ihsanoglu "said the violence that had emanated from emotions aroused by a production of a film had hurt the religious sentiments of Muslims. The two incidents demonstrated serious repercussions of abuse of freedom of expression that OIC had consistently been warning against."

 On Monday a spokesman for the bloc of 56 Muslim states deplored the Mohammed movie - which Egyptian media had been reporting on for several days - calling its production "an act of incitement of inter-communal hatred."

In Wednesday's statement, Ihsanoglu condemned the killing of U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three other American diplomats in Benghazi, saying he was "shocked by the reprehensible act which could not be condoned on any grounds."He also "expressed grave concern" about Tuesday's incident in Cairo. Some protestors there breached the embassy compound walls, destroyed an American flag and hoisted a black banner carrying the Islamic declaration of faith, "There is no god but Allah and Mohammed is his prophet."

"The OIC secretary-general added that while the film was a deplorable act of incitement, resorting to violence resulting in loss of innocent lives could not be condoned," the statement said. Ihsanoglu called for restraint and said law enforcement authorities should take all necessary measures to bring the situation under control.

In a departure from previous OIC initiatives aimed at outlawing what it calls "religious defamation," the resolution known as 16/18 did not call for legal proscriptions, except in the specific case of religion-based "incitement to imminent violence."

The OIC's attempt to use the tragedy to further its longstanding campaign against "religious defamation" is in keeping with its past record.

Muslim violence has become so Satanic and so frequent, we have not posted in this topic. It seems that each crime is so heinous that it needs its own post. :(  And, the lack of response to it is so very revealing as to the character  of those who refuse  to say or do anything. The end is near, the seventh trumpet is sounding loudly.

I wonder if it is a logical conclusion that those who have the power to stop or do something about persecution of Christians now and do not will likewise be foremost to persecute Christians when the opportunity arises.

We  will soon find out, cp.

ISIS Muslims continue to murder Christians because they will not convert. This time 30 Ethiopians are executed.

Found an interesting explanation of the three parts of islam from Daniel ch's 11 & 12  https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLDr4b37IuL8MzLI394zp87hGIU3JhLTnN
parts 5 & 6
Radical Islam destroyed by the Papacy, the moderate Muslims join or obey the Papacy, the God Fearing Muslims who actually sought God, and have come to Him, obey Him are rescued by Jesus.   There has been two conflicts between Rome and Mecca over the past 1400 yrs, this is the building up of the third and final conflict.  In Luther's era the conflict kept Rome so diluted that Martin Luther survived to live out his life and finish his work .

There are a couple of "elephants" in the room and it seems that most continue on in life as if they are not there. One is working in broad daylight, the other in a covert manner. Why is it that even those who have been given great light ignore the reality set before their eyes? Is religion a divisive force in society? Not according to Barack Hussein Obama, unless you are a Christian. ISSIS has nothing to do with Islam. We can understand why Obama feels the way he does, but what of those who have their Bibles opened, what is their excuse?

Here is an article published by the General Conference news outlet, ANN. In it we find a statement by Ambassador Robert A. Seiple, a former United States Ambassador at large for Religious Freedom, and current IRLA president. He said “We need to know our own faith, and likewise, we need to understand our neighbour’s faith and respect it.”

Forgive me if I do not respect false religion, especially when it rapes and murders children. Earlier this year the Pew Research Center published a study on the Latest Trends in Religious Restrictions and Hostilities. They profess to be neutral in their research, but it appears to me they have not come to the right conclusion as to where the real problem is in regards to religious persecution and the lack of religious liberty around the world. Maybe somewhere in their report they write of the rapes and murders of young girls, but I did not see it. Do we expect the world to clearly see the truth or to report it? "And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment." Isaiah 59:14,15.

We understand what is happening in the Middle East, Northern Africa, and around the world. Do we understand the fourth, fifth, and sixth trumpets in the Book of Revelation. They reveal the works of Islam. "And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power....And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon." Rev. 9:1-3,11. What we read is a battle between apostate Christianity and Islam. For a people who are to be teaching "Babylon" has fallen, what are your thoughts on the presentation?  Is religion a divisive force in society? Is it going to change? Who is persecuting Christians, who is going to persecute Christians? Who will use the state to legislate religious dogma in order to silence Christians?

EU Puts 'Genocide' Tag on Islamic State

[Excerpts]

The European Parliament has declared the violent campaign by the so-called Islamic State against Christians and other religious minorities to be genocide. "Daesh commits genocide," according to the resolution passed 4 Feb. by a show of hands from representatives of the 28-nation European Union. Daesh is an English representation of the Arabic acronym for Islamic State.

Religious-freedom advocates have been lobbying Western governments to formally apply the term genocide to Islamic State's 21-month drive to impose a fundamentalist interpretation of Islam upon northern Iraq and Syria. Under multinational human-rights agreements, formal recognition of genocide heightens the obligation of participating countries to respond.

 "Daesh is committing genocide against Christians and Yazidis, and other religious and ethnic minorities, who do not agree with the so-called ISIS/Daesh interpretation of Islam," the resolution reads.

"This therefore entails action under the 1948 United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide; underlines the fact that those who intentionally, for ethnic or religious reasons, conspire in, plan, incite, commit or attempt to commit, are complicit in or support atrocities should be brought to justice and prosecuted for violations of international law, notably war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide."

The vote, which carries legal weight among EU members, calls upon all nations to heed  the UN's 1948 anti-gencode convention "to wholly fulfil their legal obligations under the convention and such other international agreements."

ADF International, a religious-freedom legal organization that has European Parliament accreditation, applauded the move. "It was high time that the EU responded to the undeniable evidence of this genocide, which includes assassinations of church leaders, torture, mass murders, kidnapping, sexual enslavement and systematic rape of Christian and Yazidi girls and women, destruction of churches, monasteries, and cemeteries,” Sophia Kuby, the legal group's director of EU advocacy, said in a prepared statement.

In late December, more than 60 members of the British government sent a letter to UK Prime Minister David Cameron urging him to lobby the UN to classify IS atrocities as genocide. Also in December, the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, an advisory body to the U.S. Congress, issued a similar request to the American administration.

Jewish Businessman Saves ISIS Slaves from Captivity

[Excerpts]

Steve Maman helped save 128 Yazidi and Christian women and girls in Iraq, saying: "What motivated me is being Jewish, being part of a people that actually survived the Holocaust. We waited for six years for people to come and help us."

Canadian Jewish businessman Steve Maman has earned the nickname "the Jewish Schindler" after establishing an organization that saves Christian and Yazidi-Kurdish women and girls in Iraq who were kidnapped by the Islamic State.

"We raise the funds...we have the team on the ground which is a trusted team...these people receive the funds that we send to them...they actually have made great connections throughout the last 15 years in the areas of Iraq," he told Canada's CBC Radio .

"There's millions of inhabitants in Mosul and they're not all ISIS so we, within those millions of people, have found teams that were willing to work with us in order to get those girls out," he added.

"We don't deal with ISIS and that's enough for me...we deal with intermediaries that are willing to help and I'm willing to cover their cost in order to save a world," he told CBC Radio.

Maman met with several of the women he helped save and heard horror stories from them about their time in captivity.

[There are] worries that paying ransom for the women would encourage ISIS to consider it a "profitable business model," Maman noted that "ISIS is worth today $4 billion. Do you think that my little meager two or 3,000 dollars per child is going to in any way or form help the power and might that ISIS may attain?"

"You'd have to stand up and tell the 1,200 survivors thanks to Oskar Schindler and their 15,000 descendants, that they were liberated unlawfully...because we were liberated thanks to Oskar Schindler giving money to the Nazi," he argued.
