Illinois: Pro-Hijab Propaganda on Billboards


Chicago’s WGN reported Monday that “a local Islamic group launched a billboard campaign Monday to educate people about the hijab, the headscarf that’s often worn by Muslim women. The billboards are the first of their kind in the country, designed by a group called GainPeace, which encourages non-Muslims to call the organization and ask questions to gain a better understanding of why women wear the hijab. The billboards draw a similarity to the Christian religion where Mary is considered the mother of Jesus. She also wore a hijab.”

As if that weren’t enough smooth deception for one day, the article quotes Sara Ahmed, a GainPeace volunteer, saying: “Wearing the hijab is 100 percent my choice. As contrary to the popular belief, hijab in no way oppresses us. In fact, it indicates the opposite as hijab symbolizes the power to women, and not inferiority.”

Is that so?

First, let’s consider the source…. more

TEACHER SUED FOR TEACHING ISLAM IS ‘THE TRUE FAITH’


IslamvideoA lawsuit has been filed against social-studies teacher Christine Jakowski and others in the Chatham School District in New Jersey for teaching public school students that Islam is “the true faith.”

Jakowski’s lesson included an explanation on how to become a Muslim and ended with a plea: “May god help us all find the true faith, Islam. Ameen.”

The Thomas More Law Center said its complaint was filed on behalf of Libby Hilsenrath and her son, a minor, after seventh-grade students at the school “were forced to endure Islamic propaganda and an explicit call to convert to Islam.”

It came during the World Cultures and Geography class…. more

KILLED OVER A CUP OF WATER–IN PAKISTAN, CHRISTIANS ARE THE ‘UNTOUCHABLE’ CASTE


Persecution against Christians continues to run very high, with Muslim youth being taught to treat believers with contempt

Throughout the Central Asian country of Pakistan (#5 on the 2018 World Watch List), persecution against Christians is rampant. Increasingly, Muslim youth are taught to treat believers with contempt and persecute Christians, commonly regarded as an “untouchable caste.”

Switzerland’s Immigration Statute: High Hurdle for Citizenship



The New American
: A new law in Switzerland seeks to stanch the flow of immigrants into the small Alpine confederation renown for its historic adherence to principles of liberty and federalism.

Regulations promulgated by the law, which became effective this month, prevent immigrants who have received welfare in the past three years from being granted the vaunted status of “citizen” until they have paid the money back to the government.

Other provisions prevent temporary asylum seekers from applying for citizenship unless they have been granted a “settlement permit” (roughly the equivalent of Permanent Resident in the U.S.) after five or ten years.

Additionally, presence in Switzerland alone will not qualify an immigrant for consideration of citizenship status, either. The Swiss government now mandates a modicum of integration into Swiss culture before an immigrant can become a citizen. more …

Opinion by BIBLE PROPHECY TRACKER: The Swiss are tough. Some quip that they are like the Germans without the sense of humor.

But the Swiss seem to have every intention of remaining a country made up of people who embrace the Swiss culture, language and borders. To that end, the Muslim population that in 1980 comprised of 1% is now 5%, and Switzerland is now doing what is unthinkable to the progressive left in the US to do with their Muslim population: denying citizenship for failing to integrate into Swiss society. 

The Swiss want no part of migration jihad called hijrah in Islam. Migration replaces the sword for bringing Sharia to Kafir (infidel) culture.

Chain migration is a term used to describe the ability of U.S. citizens and green card holders to bring all of their extended family into the country, down to even nieces and nephews. In turn that group can do the same, making the numbers grow exponentially.

President Donald Trump says this process opens the door for too many uneducated, under-qualified, and possibly dangerous, immigrants to legally enter the U.S. He has been hammering that point ever since police arrested a 27-year-old man accused of setting off a pipe-bomb in a commuter tunnel near Times Square in December.

Akayed Ullah is here because of chain migration.

I have to admit I never really understood it until the failed New York bombing attack. In fact, sometimes I research and compile posts like this so that we can all understand it better.

USA Today published a list of the different categories of family-based immigration and how many people entered the U.S. just in 2017 through each category, according to the State Department:

  • Spouse  — 112,631
  • Minor child  — 51,327
  • Parent  — 85,280
  • Unmarried, adult son or daughter of U.S. citizen, and their children — 22,807
  • Spouse or child of green card holder and their children  — 106,899
  • Married child of U.S. citizen, their spouse and children  — 20,716
  • Brother or sister of U.S. citizen, their spouse and children — 61,733

In a 1790 House of Representatives debate on naturalization, James Madison declared:

When we are considering the advantages that may result from an easy mode of naturalization, we ought also to consider the cautions necessary to guard against abuses; it is no doubt very desirable, that we should hold out as many inducements as possible, for the worthy part of mankind to come and settle amongst us, and throw their fortunes into a common lot with ours. 

But, why is this desirable? Not merely to swell the catalogue of people. No, sir, ’tis to increase the wealth and strength of the community, and those who acquire the rights of citizenship, without adding to the strength or wealth of the community, are not the people we are in want of. And what is proposed by the amendment is, that they shall take nothing more than an oath of fidelity, and an intention that they mean to reside in the United States: Under such terms, it was well observed by my colleague, aliens might acquire the right of citizenship, and return to the country from which they came, and evade the laws intended to encourage the commerce and industry of the real citizens and inhabitants of America, enjoying, at the same time, all the advantages of citizens and aliens.

I should be exceeding sorry, sir, that our rule of naturalization excluded a single person of good fame, that really meant to incorporate himself into our society; on the other hand, I do not wish that any man should acquire the privilege, but who, in fact, is a real addition to the wealth or strength of the United States.

Throw in a few expletives and it sounds a little like Donald J. Trump, don’t ya think?

TRUMP’S JERUSALEM DECLARATION SPARKS TALK OF 3RD TEMPLE


WND: While Muslims jeer, Israelis cheer President Trump’s Jerusalem declaration, prompting Jewish religious activists to suggest building the Third Temple is closer to reality than ever before.

“What he did … was an enormous step in bringing the Temple,” said Asaf Fried, official spokesman for the United Temple Movement, an association of organizations working towards making the Third Temple a reality.

He added, “This necessarily had to come from a non-Jew in order to bring them into the process, so they will be able to take their part in the Temple.”

Fried sees Trump’s role similar to the one played by Cyrus, the Persian king who ended the Babylonian exile and helped build the Second Jewish Temple.

“There have been amazing advances towards bringing the Temple this year. It was clear that Trump was part of that process, guided by Hashem (God),” Fried declared. more …

Opinion by BIBLE PROPHECY TRACKER: That President Trump is the first US president to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel since Harry Truman, lines up perfectly with Bible prophecy that says that there will be a temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem in the tribulation.

Exodus 25:8 “AND THEY SHALL MAKE A TEMPLE AND I WILL DWELL AMONG THEM”

Jewish Fact and Lore:

  1. The Temple Mount is said to be where God gathered the dust to form Adam’s body.
    The holiest spot on the Temple Mount is a bare rock, covered since the 7th century by an Islamic building called the Dome of the Rock. The Rock is known to have been the cornerstone of both Solomon’s and Herod’s Temples.
  2. The Temple Mount is known as the center of the world; a place that connects heaven, earth and the netherworld. “This is Jerusalem; I have set it in the midst of the nations and countries that are about her” (Ezekiel 5:5).
  3. The spot where Abraham bound Isaac for sacrifice. After an angel of the Lord stopped Abraham and provided a ram as a substitute for the sacrifice, he called this place “The Lord will provide” (Genesis 22: 1-19).
  4. When Isaac goes out into the fields to pray prior to meeting Rebekah for the first time, he is standing on Mount Moriah (Genesis 24:63-67).
  5. The place where Jacob laid his head after he left his father’s house to go to Haran to find a wife (Genesis 28: 10-11).
  6. God has declared that this is the place that He will establish His name and will dwell there forever (Deuteronomy 14:23).
  7. Scripture indicates that Antichrist will clear the way for the third temple to be built.

Possible order of events:

Rapture of the Church and Bema Seat Judgment (1 Thess. 4:13-18; 1 Cor. 15:51-58; 2 Cor. 3:11-15)
The diaspora is complete and the last of the Jews return to the land “not leaving any behind” (Ezek. 39:28)
The Tribulation/Day of the Lord Begins: (Jeremiah 30:7; Rev. 6:1-3)
Revival of the Roman Empire, 10 nation confederacy formed. (Dan. 7: 24; Rev. 13:1, 17:3)
Rise of Antichrist, 11th king (Dan. 7:8, 24; Rev. 13:1-8)
Temple is built (Dan. 9:27; Mat. 24:15; II Thess. 2:4 and Rev. 11:1)

HEARING GOD’S VOICE OVER THE NOISE OF SHARIA LAW


A new generation discovers their greater calling.
Anyone who has worked in youth ministry before is familiar with the question, “So how do I know God’s will/hear His voice?”

Very few, though, have heard it while working in a country under Sharia Law or Islamic law (derived from the precepts of Islam). At this camp, the question carries a gravity to it. These Christian teenagers face intense pressure in their day-to-day lives, and spiritual survival depends on the answer.

“The faith of the youth in this country is rather fragile,” a pastor told Open Doors last year. “Everything they face outside the church walls is Islam. Our government has incorporated Islamic values and systems into all its administrative policies.”

The effect on national education has impacted young believers the most…. read more
