Christian or Muslim? by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired

Christian or Muslim?

by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired

This is to those who blindly accept Islam/Muslims as a healthy contributing part of American society, including Barack Hussein Obama, who some argue convincingly, is a Muslim. The media, mainly CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS and to a lesser extent FOX, are willing dupes in the hoax that Islam/Muslims are peaceful; perhaps within a very narrow context may be minutely, partially true.

However, in the aggregate, there is nothing peaceful about Islam, that is, except in the context of PAX Islam. Yet, even where Islam is the dominant religion there are divisions within Islam i.e. Sunni vs. Shiite that are sufficient to sustain eight years of conflict between Iraq and Iran not to mention the ongoing Sunni/Shiite conflict in Iraq which is far from over notwithstanding claims to the contrary by the Obama Administration.

What liberal westerners, in particular those whose life experience is as deep as a plate do not desire to understand is that historical as well as contemporary Islam, unlike contemporary Christianity has not distanced itself from violence and conquest as a religious body. Further, those same liberals do not want to comprehend or accept that Islam is a system of governance and lifestyle that emphasizes total mind, soul and body control (and yet, the claim is that 4 out of 5 new converts to Islam are women. Imagine that.)

Islam in the macro context is a: religious/moral, political, educational, economic, and legal system. Everything is focused on submission to Allah with the ultimate reward of 72 virgins who await martyrs (although evidently there is not counterpart for those females who blow themselves up). There are no doubt humanitarian aspects of Islam, most if not all of which pertain and apply to fellow Muslims somewhat like Mormons who take care of their own; or, who are afflicted with gang loyalties that are irresistibly attractive to some in this country.

In the U.S., Islam is protected by the U.S. Constitution, and for those with a chip on their shoulders for whatever the reason, Islam legitimizes the hatred they harbor toward their fellow Americans who may not be of the same cultural mindset, ethnicity or faith. Consider the racist, hate filled remarks of Louis Farrakhan and other hate purveyors/ Islam-o-files towards Jews and Christians.

Travel to any nation that is dominated by Islam such as Saudi Arabia and try to openly practice a different faith or recruit anyone to join in one’s different faith system and see what happens. Allow a bit of edification: one would as a minimum be arrested and expelled if not arrested, imprisoned and/or beheaded.

Obama’s words while he visited Turkey where he stated that we Americans

“do not consider ourselves a Christian nation, or a Muslim nation, but rather, a nation of citizens who are, uh, bound by a set of values.”

Yet in an interview with a French news agency on the same trip he stated notwithstanding his error in fact:

“And one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we'd be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.”

So, while diminishing America’s Christian heritage Obama dismisses and replaces it with Muslim heritage/achievement.

Obama’s personal direction to NASA Chief, Charles Bolden, in Bolden’s words:

“When I became the NASA administrator -- or before I became the NASA administrator -- he (ed., Obama) charged me with three things. One was he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science ... and math and engineering.”

Americans are constantly bombarded with the notion that Christians are hypocrites, and if one observes many who claim that title, the charge is on point. That is because most who claim it do so out of ignorance of its substance which is the love, forgiveness, mercy and grace of God as manifest through the life, teachings, death and resurrection of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ.

Note: To become a Christian is both simple and free, in fact it cannot be purchased at any price: for those who do not know, repent of one’s evil ways, ask God for forgiveness, and live according to the teachings of Jesus Christ as contained in the New Testament of the Holy Bible. Christianity frees from evil and guilt and promises (and unlike Obama, God keeps His promises) personal contentment and peace, and eternal life; it is a freely exercised lifestyle without forcible imposition by or upon others and stands in stark contrast to the intimidation, weight and legalism of Islam.

“Choose you this day whom you will serve, as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

Wild Thing's comment.........

Obama's actions and his words have shown us he is a Muslim. About a week ago Glenn Beck did one of his shows about Rev. Wrights church and what they belileve in and of course as well Obama believes in as well. How obama uses the term collective Christianity and the thing is there is no such thing. Not one mention of that in the Bible. It is all political with him, with Wright and his church, the whole thing.

Taqiyya allows Muslims to do anything they want to - if they’re doing it to convince others that they are not Muslim so they can further the Muslim agenda. Taquiya (deceit to advance islam) is allowed for jihad. He is considered advancing islam therefore, he can say whatever he likes. He does use “code” meaningful to practicing muslims, his pronunciation of arabic words, etc. Very precise, very deceitful.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.
