Terrorists DO Understand Islam

We were in Montana all last week and had little Internet accessibility and almost no cell service on the mountain where we were staying.  It was actually kind of nice to be blissfully ignorant of North Korea threats, Trump Tweets and riots in Virginia.

That being said, I don't think I could stay blissfully ignorant forever because there are just too many exciting things going on.

For instance....did you know that lots of Muslim terrorists actually do understand Islam?

An international organization that supports persecuted Christians has a heads-up for Western politicians and other leaders who continually insist Islam has nothing to do with terrorism and describe it as a “religion of peace.”

It’s not, contends the England-based Barnabas Fund, citing a newly released study by Ednan Aslan, a professor of Islamic religious education at the University of Vienna.

Aslan found that many jihadis and “other radical Islamists” have a “deep understanding of Islamic theology.”

“The study … comprehensively refutes the claims made by many politicians and other public figures in the West that radical Islam is a perversion of Islam and jihadists have little knowledge of Islamic theology,” the Christian organization said.

In “Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance,” renowned activist Pamela Geller offers proven, practical guidance on how freedom lovers can stop jihadist initiatives in local communities.

Barnabas, which focuses most of efforts on the Muslim world, works through local organizations and churches on behalf of the persecuted church “to be their voice – making their needs known to Christians around the world.”

Aslan’s 310-page study, published in German, features in-depth interviews with 29 “radical Muslims” in Austria.

“Most of those studied already had a grounding in Islamic belief before they were radicalized,” Barnabas said. “However, what Professor Aslan terms ‘the intensive examination of theological topics’ represented a turning point for many in their radicalization. Professor Aslan’s study also highlighted the central role played by some Islamic theological teachers in radicalization, stating, ‘persons with a higher theological knowledge function as authorities and play a central role in the spread of ideology.'”

It’s something the West needs to understand, Barnabas Fund said.

“It is really important that Western governments wake up and take notice of such research. Until they recognize that the persecution of Christians and other non-Muslim minorities in the Middle East and elsewhere is driven by some long-standing interpretations of Islamic theology, it is unlikely that they will be able to address the problem effectively.


Yep!  How do fight a problem when you don't think there is a problem?

Sadly there are too many "Christians" in America who now believe that all religions are worshiping the same god.  They believe these different religions just have different names for him and different ways of worshiping him...or her.

And if the "Christians" in America can't even figure out that Islam is NOT a religion of peace but is actually a religion fomented by the devil himself....then how would we expect the secularists among us to figure it out?

The founder of ISIS actually has his doctorate in Islamic Studies from Baghdad I'm pretty sure he knows a lot more about Islam than the average Lutheran or Methodist sitting in Minneapolis who keep insisting that "ISIS members aren't true Muslims!"

In reality, ISIS members are probably a lot more like Muhammad than the liberal members of the faith.
