Can’t We Talk About This?

Can’t We Talk About This?

James Simpson | Bombthrowers There is a new film out by Pamela Geller, Can’t We Talk About This Those were the last words spoken by Theo Van Gogh as he was being murdered at 9 in the morning on a main thoroughfare in Amsterdam. I urge you to watch and support this film. Van Gogh was a good friend of Pam’s. He had just completed a short film with Ayaan Hirsi Ali, titled Submission.(video link and you must see) It describes the treatment of women under Islam. Mohammed Bouyeri, a  Moroccan-Dutch Muslim, took offense at the film and shot Van Gogh as he was riding to work on his bike. Bouyeri then stabbed Van Gogh, cutting his neck in an attempt to behead him. He used a second knife to pin a note on Van Gogh’s body. Read More

Henrico County: Lawfare, American Property Rights versus Muslim Supremacy

Henrico County: Lawfare, American Property Rights versus Muslim Supremacy

  (Henrico VA ) The Wright Scoop launches book Lawfare, American Property Rights versus Muslim Supremacy. Across the Natio n, battles occur between Islamic entitlement and enforcement of American civil liberties and property rights. One such battle is occurring in exurban Henrico County in central Virginia between legacy American property rights and expansion of the Islamic Center of Richmond (ICR). This battle is not about freedom to worship protected under the First Amendment or federal laws granting exemption waivers from local land zoning laws. It is about abuse of the courts through lawfare to create a Muslim preserve in Central Virginia through force majeure, harassment and intimidation. Lawfare, American Property Rights versus Muslim Supremacy As Wright’s book documents, criminal and civil court proceedings have revealed activities by those associated with Henrico County VA and the Islamic Center of Richmond to be more based on a political agenda; then, theology or laws and regulation. As observed by others: “Protecting religious freedom does not mean permitting people to violate the law in the name of religious freedom. Religious freedom remains freedom to believe, but not a freedom to act in violation of facially neutral laws. For many years people defended racist laws as being required by their religion. But religion should not grant one the right to ignore the law. Jefferson advised us that if a neutral law required action that violated a person’s religious belief that person had to abide by the law. We are a nation of laws after all.” Christopher Peace, delegate Hanover County for VA General Assembly Read More

What Christians Should Not Do

What Christians Should Not Do

Article 10 in a Series  (see full lnterfaith list here) This series ends by going back to the beginning, why these articles were written in the first place. First, the present inter-faith discussions do not promote open dialogue. The outcome is determined by its participants before an event begins. Second, Islam’s supporters use these events to paint a false picture of Islam and thereby promote division among the uninformed within Richmond’s Jewish and Christian communities. Third, as just alluded to, many Christian’s understanding of their own faith today is so thin they do not understand the differences between Christianity and Islam—let alone why they matter. The Purpose A further peril arises because progressive ideas exist within our society today. These parallel Islam in many respects, because they both come from the same root. If we do not get this right, we risk losing our identity as a people, and that is simply unacceptable. Therefore, these final articles focus on three actions we as Christians should not take, using inconsistencies and deficiencies expressed by secularists and some American Christians, and applying simple logic. Previous articles reviewed some significant differences between Christianity and Islam, and why they matter. This wasn’t done to promote division, but used both Christian and Islamic source documents to put forward truth. We need a meaningful discussion to make informed decisions, and only understanding truth gives us that opportunity. It is unfortunate today that truth is rejected by some within our society, but that is all the more reason why it must be spoken. It is rare and essential. Read More

Lawfare in Henrico County and Living in Fear

Lawfare in Henrico County and Living in Fear

Across the Nation, the Islamic Movement is quietly, community by community, conquering America. How Elected officials defend and promote the jihadist. In fact, in many cases, it is the Department of Justice (DOJ) and state governments that have done their best to accommodate Muslims even when the supported Muslim community is waging Civilization Jihad, lawfare, against an affected location. Such a battle is occurring in exurban Henrico County in central Virginia between legacy American property rights and expansion of the Islamic Center of Richmond (ICR). In addition to legal harassment, the community of Hoehns Lakeview Farms has experienced numerous acts of criminal violence including death threats. For details, link and view a video Living in Fear, (see video below). Seeking protection for her community, ‘dominant landowner’ Sylvia Hoehns Wright solicited help from Christopher Peace, delegate Hanover County for VA General Assembly who influenced the enactment of an antiSLAPP amendment effective July 1, 2016 which not only protected Wright’s community but all state of Virginia residents.   So, what can you do Make a choice to ‘stand with’, join Wright and her community in an effort to hold governmental leaders accountable.  Educate yourself, review GoFundMe – Hoehns Lakeview Farms,  .

How Should Christian’s Respond

How Should Christian’s Respond

Article 9 in a Series The previous articles focused on some of the differences between Islam and Christianity, and why those differences matter. Islam’s ideology is both contrary to and incompatible with Christian doctrine and principles. Principles that form our society’s very foundation. This article looks at how we, as Christians, should respond to this threat—and by extension to any other threat. The difference comes down to Jesus and His teachings, and that is where we’ll start. Jesus of Nazareth Jesus continues to influence the world in ways that few others have ever done. Volumes were written by the early church fathers and are still written about Him today; about His life, His teachings, and their life lessons for us. His life and death are corroborated by non-Christian sources as cited in article 6. It comes down to who is He, what He promised, and what He called us to do. We’ll look to the Bible for answering these questions as it contains His word. Who Is Jesus There are many passages that could be cited to answer all three questions, but Jesus himself provides the answers. These quotes are simple and go straight to the heart of the matter in each case. Jesus said to him [Thomas], “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him.” John 14:6-7[1] God is the only way to truth and life, and Christ is One with the Father which is why His promise matters. What Did He Promise Read More

U.S. Islamic Movement Enters Final Stage

U.S. Islamic Movement Enters Final Stage

Understanding the Threat The leading edge of the Islamic Movement’s Final Stage in the United States is upon us. The violence is now beginning in earnest. One day in the future, history will record with great astonishment how military leaders, politicians on both sides of the aisle, intelligence professionals, and others were catastrophically unprofessional for 16 years after 9/11/2001, thus putting the American people in grave peril. Understanding the Threat’s (UTT) has trained thousands of local, state and federal officers/agents on the Islamic threat (sharia and the jihadi network in the US), the hard-left Marxist/Socialist/Communist threat, and how these Movements work together to bring down the U.S. government. The response to UTT’s training is always the same:  (1) none of those in attendance, including FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force agents/officers, have ever heard the information presented, and (2) they all agree it is critical to protecting their communities.  See some comments here. When UTT’s President John Guandolo was recruited out of the FBI by the Department of Defense (end of 2008) he briefed a number of 3 and 4 star generals and admirals, numerous Members of Congress, the Chairmen of the House Intelligence, Homeland Security, and Judiciary Committees, former Directors of intelligence agencies, former National Security Advisors, and others.  None of these good men and women were aware of the massive jihadi network in the United States, nor what sharia is and how it operates to drive the Global Islamic Movement.

Jihad’s Nature

Jihad’s Nature

Article 8 in a series (see full lnterfaith list here) This article covers a topic that most of us have some familiarity with—jihad. There is much misinformation about this topic, so we are going to focus on only a few significant items. What Does Jihad Mean The first item is what exactly does jihad mean. According to Pete Seda, “the word jihad literally means struggle.”[1] This is true, but what really matters is what does this word mean within the context of the Qur’an What kind of struggle Below are just a few verses from it and Ibn Ishaq’s sirat.[2] Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters [non-believers] wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. (S9.5)[3] Fight in the way of Allah, and know that Allah is Hearer, Knower. (S2.244) Read More

Why the Differences in God’s Nature Matter

Why the Differences in God’s Nature Matter

  Article 7 in a Series  (see full lnterfaith list here)   By Dan Wolf   Articles 2 and 6 explored some significant differences between God and Allah. This article examines one implication of those differences. Truth. Will. Not so much what it is or is not, but rather is it timeless and changeless or does it change with time And if the latter, what are some implications of the difference God’s Will The Bible is clear that God’s will, His Word and promises do not change. They were spoken once before time for all time. We have the following passages from the Bible supporting this idea. God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent; Has He said, and will He not do it Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good Numbers 23:19[1] Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. James 1:17 Remember those who led you, who spoke the word of God to you; and considering the result of their conduct, imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:7-8 Read More

Book Review: “The Strange Death of Europe”

Book Review: “The Strange Death of Europe”

Douglas Murray Bloomsbury: 343 pp., on AmazonEurope’s Epitaph – A Saga of Political Correctness, Denial, Arrogance, and Stupidity  Book Review by Col. Tom Snodgrass (Ret.) The Seemingly Inexplicable, Self-Inflicted Demise of Western Europe The first paragraph of the book’s Introduction sets the stage for the bizarre and appalling historical account that follows: Europe is committing suicide. Or at least its leaders have decided to commit suicide. Whether the European people choose to go along with this is, naturally, another matter. Willful self-destruction is difficult to comprehend and explain, but the author, Douglas Murray, does as well as such a decidedly weird behavior permits. Mr. Murray is a prize-winning British author, journalist, and associate magazine editor, and as such he is perfectly positioned to deal with this abnormal issue as a firsthand observer chronicling the pathetically tragic civilization-ending events. The Historical Background The fateful story begins in Western Europe after the Second World War when the war’s massive male death toll created continent-wide labor shortages. In order to perform the critical reconstruction of the war-devastated societies, the Western Europeans turned to a readily available source of manpower, the teeming Islamic labor markets in North Africa, Turkey, the Middle East, and Southwest Asia. The assumption when the Islamic labor recruitment was initiated in the post-war era was that the imported labor augmentation would be temporary and that the migrant workers would return to their counties-of-origin after some undetermined period of time. The entire concept was poorly thought-through by European governments from the beginning. Read More

Islam’s Jesus

Islam’s Jesus

Article 6 in a Series  (see full lnterfaith list here) By Dan Wolf  This article touches on God’s nature. Within Judeo-Christian tradition, the question is ‘Who is God’. Within Islam the question becomes ‘What is God’ Some of the significant differences between Allah and God have already been discussed in Part 2, A Christian Perspective. However, there are a couple more quick points to add before turning to Jesus. God’s Oneness From Islam Is ... again. “In Islam everything is built on the oneness of God.”1 This oneness is so simple and pure that it allows no room for the persons of Father, Son and Holy Spirit within God’s Single Essence. Why Because God is so simple and pure that Allah is only will, without any Being, Essence, or Nature. This view of God leads to the notion within Islam that “[I]t is forbidden to attribute to God characteristics of His creation. The only attributes that may be ascribed to God are the ones He revealed Himself in the Qur’an or those used by the Prophet to describe Him.”2 Even these attributes are not a part of Allah’s nature, but only things Allah causes.
