Sorry this took a long time but I have been very sick. The antibiotics they were giving me didn’t work. They put me on a different kind and it did most of the trick. But then I ended up with another infection so that is a short brief of what has been going on. Just getting old I guess.
I am going to give a short brief history about Lebanon. Lebanon didn’t have Muslim influence until shortly after Muhammad’s death. Muhammad went around raiding and conquering and Muslims afterwards continued it even unto this day.
In the 7th century when Umayyad became the capital which was near Damascus is when the start of the Muslim influence began. The Arab Muslims invaded most of the coastal lands of Lebanon and not the mountain areas.
Abbasids treated Lebanon as a conquered land during 750 to 1110 A.D. This started the rebellion by the Lebanese Mountaineers. The Lebanese Christians were heavily involved in the Crusades.
Lebanon was again controlled by Muslims in the 13th century. During the Maans 1120-1697 Fakhr ad-Din II tried to merge all the religions into one community. He also built up the military. However he was conquered and executed in 1635. The Shihabs were next to rule and were a Sunni Muslim family, but had converted to Christianity. During the 19th century there was relative a peaceful period because the Muslims, Druze and Maronite groups focused on economic and cultural issues. However, the Druze got tired of high taxes and the harshness of the government. It is the League of Nations that made up the present day Lebanon.
Lebanon gained independence in 1943. In 1948 Lebanon ended up with 110,000 refugees from Palestine because of the Arab-Israeli War. The ratio was 6:5 non-Muslim. By 1960 Muslims were considered to be the majority of Lebanon.
The oil-rich Persian- Gulf Arabs helped Lebanon’s economics. This came to a halt when the Yousef Beidas’ Intra Bank collapsed around 1966. More Palestinian refugees arrived in 1967. Some of these refugees used South Lebanon to launch attacks on Israel. This created a strain between Israel and Lebanon because the Muslims catered to the PLO(PLA/Palestinian Liberation Army) yet the non-Muslims were against PLO. Later in 1975 there was a civil war because of the strain between Christians and Muslims over political distribution of power. Syria intervened. I gave the history bescause you learn from history.
1. Know the terrain to come up with a plan: This means the land, government, and people of the country. During the late 60s and1970s we brought over Arabs into the US to go to college. It was to teach them Petroleum Engineering. A lot of them went to USL now known as ULL. The reason I know this is because I was going to college there at the time.
In fact one of those Arabs is in charge of the department now. We call him AZ because he has almost every letter of the alphabet in his name and no one can pronounce his name. When he was a student the parents of his prearranged wife to be told him he needed to bring her over there and marry her. He did just that. When I left they had a son. I do not know if he ever became a US citizen or not.
Now not all Arabs are Muslims but not all Muslims are Arabs either. They have been turning people of other lands to Muslims as you saw in my first post on their history.
Take for instance the land we bought from Muslims. They owned at least five forty acres of land. Our neighbors had bought some of their land before we did. They were to clean up the garbage and the metal from one of the trailers they burnt. They refused to do what they had agreed to. They told my husband that if he wouldn’t shut up they would go to war with him. One thing you don’t do is tell someone that has been in the military over 20 years.My husband’s response was “Lock and load.”
I am from a military family, learned the martial arts when I was in Japan, and went to the police academy in San Jose, CA. Also, I was a security officer for Ford Aerospace for five years before I got laid off in 1993.
We found out after we moved here that this guy had been in the US military and had several wives one being his daughter, They had terrorized the community and two of his sons are in prison for trying to chop off a boy’s head because he had talked to one of their sisters. They to tell the schools what to serve for lunches.
They would play their Muslim worship music over loud speakers. In fact one of the neighbors did finally shot the speakers because nothing was being done. We also, was told that they had moved here shortly after 9/11. That the FBI had asked questions about them shortly afterwards.
Ditch dug on land middle filled with sage brush
Our land has a deep ditch which could of been or not have been for pipe line to their double wide trailer they were using for worship. The holes and ditch of course has brush in them because we have had the property for five years now. Also, not only we had found but our neighbors found on their property.
There were bullet shells and bullets of 50 collaboration and a knife that had been whittled from wood. Inside one of the trailers they had bulls-eye targets that it looked like they were practicing throwing knives. The walls were all bashed in through out the house. Of course that is where they kept the kids while he and his wives lived in another double wide, not the one they used for worship.
Can't see wire fence but near one hole
On the property there were books about different countries and one we found was about”Christians”. However, the book is off on the thing about “Christians”. It has the secular view and they have no idea about Christianity. So the question is how many of these places are here in the US?
Book on World History
Lets talk about government. When you get to know the land, its government, and people it is easy to find your way into the government. One of our thing is that there is no religious test and rightfully so. However, it is important to know what one believes because that will show what they will propose and vote on.
2. Mobilize the greatest number of supporters and officials: In our schools Muslims are allowed to have their worship services. That’s right they can have worship services on campus and yet other religions cannot, especially Christians. The excuse they give is that it is their culture. Well if anything is part of someone’s culture is Christianity. It is riddled throughout this country no matter how much people want to deny it!!
It is found all over the federal and state buildings. The mottoes of some states mention God. Take the state I live in for example, Colorado is Nil sine numine which means “Nothing without God” or “Nothing without the Deity”. Believe it or not Florida’s motto is “In God we trust”. South Dakota motto means “Under God people rule”. These are some. Not all states have mottoes like these but one I find interesting is Pennsylvania,”Virtue, Liberty, and Independence”. The state I was born in Louisiana is “Union, Justice, Confidence”. I wonder how many people know their state motto.
Now that I chased that rabbit I will come back to the subject. One of those that was turned to Muslim by one of these groups was Keith Ellison. He came from a Catholic family. He turned to Muslim at Wayne State University in Detroit. His explanation was, ”I can’t claim that I was the most observant Catholic at the time [of my conversion]. I had begun to really look around and ask myself about the social circumstances of the country, issues of justice, issues of change. When I looked at my spiritual life, and I looked at what might inform social change, justice in society… I found Islam.”
He did a paper on Louis Farrakhan. Well I didn’t remember hearing anything of this man so I looked him up. He was leader of a religious sect, Nation of Islam(NOI). So what was they about? They claim that their mission is” to improve the spiritual, mental, social, and economic condition of African Americans in the United States and all of humanity”. So how do they plan to do this?
The Nation of Islam (NOI) is the same organization that Malcolm X was a member of. You remember all that hatred he spewed out? It was formed in 1930. So you can see they have been recruiting for a long time.
One of their beliefs is that Christianity is a white man’s religion. I remember when I was little and one of the songs they taught us was, “Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world, red and yellow, black and white, Jesus loves the little children of the world.”
John 3:16 which we are taught is, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him shall not parish but have everlasting life.” John 1:1 states, “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word is God.” Not “a God” but “is God.” Then you go down a little further and it says in verse 14 it says, “An the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”
What do they do with Moses who married a black woman? Then there is a black woman that has a chapter in Song of Solomon. How about God sending Peter to the Ethiopian Eunuch? Acts 8:26,27, “And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza which is desert. And he arose and went; and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship.”
Nixon and Martin Luther King
Ellison claims it was Republicans that didn’t want to end slavery but that is not true. I know because I am from the south and know the truth. Documents and speeches show otherwise from that era. I cover this in depth in my book. So if you want to know the truth read it. Nixon helped Johnson to get the civil rights act passed to honor JFK who started it before he was assassinated. Congress was controlled by Republicans. So like most blacks they have been lied to about the Republican Party. So Ellison is another black that doesn’t look at the facts but believe everything thing that is taught in the schools and didn’t question things but his faith I guess.
Now you have Michelle Bachnann claiming he has connection to the Muslim Brotherhood. Now I don’t know for sure or not but he does have some of those ideas a lot of blacks have that are not true and don’t seem to want to know the truth,
Known Muslims in the House of Representatives is two, Ellison and Carson. I believe Obama is Muslim but not admitting it. I believe there might be more in Congress but are not admitting it. There are about 4 to 7 million Muslims in the United States today. Christianity use to be the majority here in the United States but now they say that there is only 3 million here in the United States. We have Muslims going across the boarder from Mexico. They have found prayer rugs. So you think about this for awhile and then in my last post on this I will tie everything together. Remember the history I just gave of the Palestinians going into Lebanon?
Andre Carson,of the 7th District of Indiana, wants American schools to be modeled after “madrasas.” What is “madrasas”? It is any type of religious school or college for the study of the Islam religion, even though it may not be the only subject studied. Now I do agree with him that people learn differently and we should encourage innovation in our schools. But we should also encourage to question what is being taught and to do research.
Indianapolis is the home to the headquarters of the Islamic Society of North America.
Carson came from a Baptist family but went to a Catholic school which is strange in itself to me considering they are very different. The priest told him he should read about other religions. He read the “The Autobiography of Malcolm X”. I already told you Malcolm X’s connections. Carson said “You had these groups, though controversial, they were the only [ones] who drug dealers were afraid of. So that kind of nontraditional approach was very appealing in the community, because it garnered a certain amount of respect.”
He helped Obama to give money to Palestine. Palestine is into taken over Israel and into the genocide of Jews. They keep shooting into Israel constantly. Palestinians don’t want peace.
He talks about grooming the next Muslims to be leaders of America. So after you listen to this speech decide where Carson stand.
3. Collect money efficiently, invest in general interest, get into economic institutions adequate to support the cause financially. Carson talked a little about getting into businesses in his speech.
4. Reconcile international engagement with flexibility at the local level: Try to get involved worldwide to liberate Palestine and create an Islamic state: We see them financing and helping Palestine. Ignoring Israel.
5. Start to get polices that are of Islamic perspective. To create a certain number of economic, social, health care and educational institutions.
6. To work out differences that exists between those of Islam and do it according to shari’a.
7. Get into the education system. Yet the Bible was kicked out saying Separation of Church and State. So the Democrats and liberals are violating their own constitution.
8. Make sure our current events and future issues are known. Of course that is the right of all citizens here in the US. But just like the liberals have been convincing people that socialism is great. Muslims use the same tactic to make people believe Muslim is great. Remember they are aloud to lie for the cause of Islam.
9. They study those they consider their enemies, Jews, Christians, and so on. Learn about the Crusades and create jihadi cells. Create resentment against the Jews.
10. Create a policy to where the officials and people are aware of it.
My question is how can Muslims that say they don’t believe some of the Koran and yet be Muslims? Yet we have people that claim to be “Christians” and don’t believe all of the Bible. No offense but I question both. The thing is we have two types of Muslims. How do we tell the wheat from the tears?
My last post on this subject I hope to bring it all together. I gave history in hope you can see some similarities when I get into the polices of this administration. We need to be aware.
