: It is written in the authoritative ahadith (the sayings of the Muslim prophet Muhammad) and in his biographies (Sira) that Muhammad ordered the assassination of a number of people, including old men and a nursing mother, merely because they had offended or opposed him (Clare Lopez, Radical Islam.org).

Former Iranian Revolutionary Guard: Iran Will Bomb Israel:
Speaking from an undisclosed location, with his voice digitally altered to protect his true identity, former Iranian Revolutionary Guard Reza Kahlili told Israel National Radio's Yishai Fleisher that Iran would not hesitate to use nuclear bombs against Israel.
"[Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's government] will use the nuclear bomb against Israel, they will use it against Persian Gulf countries, and they will use it against Europe to bring about that last hadith (Islamic commentaries on sayings and activities of Mohammed and his companions) that calls for total chaos, lawlessness, and havoc in the world, which creates the circumstance for Imam Mahdi (the Islamic messianic figure) to appear."
Ahmadinejad's U.N. Speech (Sept. 19, 2006): “I emphatically declare that today's world, more than ever before, longs for just and righteous people with love for all humanity; and above all longs for the perfect righteous human being and the real savior who has been promised to all peoples and who will establish justice, peace and brotherhood on the planet.
0, Almighty God, all men and women are Your creatures and You have ordained their guidance and salvation. Bestow upon humanity that thirsts for justice, the perfect human being promised to all by You, and make us among his followers and among those who strive for his return and his cause.” The Mahdi is the Islamic Messiah which the Muslims have mixed up with Jesus of Nazareth. See ”Radical Islam”
In the New Testament, Christians are also encouraged to follow and emulate the life and deeds of Jesus and his diciples. Jesus explains what he did, and calls his diciples and his flock to follow his example (John 13:15, 1 Peter 5:3). Paul's letter to the Philippians 3:17-18 "Brethren, join in following my example, and note those who so walk, as you have us for a pattern. For many walk (Adam Clarke Commentary: "to preach, who wish to incorporate circumcision, and other ordinances of the law, with the Gospel," i.e., Messianic Jews, Hebrew Christians, whom he is calling "dogs" and "evil workers" in v 2), of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame--who set their mind on earthly things..." See also Paul's letter to Philippians 4:1-9, 1 Thess. 1:6-10, 2 Thess. 3:6-15.
The Apostle Paul's Christian Message on Torah Observance: Paul’s fundamental message that it is no longer necessary to keep the Commandments required in the Torah, is a recurring theme repeated and emphasized throughout the New Testament. Clearly if Jesus is to play the central determining role in man’s salvation, the necessity to keep the Commandments
must be eliminated.
LISTEN FOR FREE: Paul and the Christian Corruption of the Jewish Scriptures by Rabbi Tovia Singer:
While both Matthew and Paul quoted extensively from Tanach in order to support their teachings, only Paul would successfully persuade his audience.
The Book of Matthew was written for a Jewish audience. As a result, Matthew's mission largely failed among the people he sought to convert because the Jews were repelled by his wild exploitation of Tanach.
Paul's venture, on the other hand, was enormously successful. The minister to the gentiles was preaching to audiences that were completely illiterate, and lacked the ability to discern between genuine Judaism and Bible-tampering.
Rabbi Singer demonstrates how Paul corrupted the Jewish scriptures in order to both undermine the Torah, and advance his new, sweeping doctrines that would lay the foundation for Christian theology.
Did Jesus speak Jihad?
Luke 19:14,27 "But his citizens (the Jewish people) hated him, and sent an envoy after him, saying, 'We don't want this man to reign over us.'
Jesus: "But bring those enemies of mine who didn't want me to reign over them here, and kill them before me.'"
Adam Clarke (1760-1832), was a British Methodist theologian and Biblical scholar. He is chiefly remembered for writing a commentary on the Bible which took him forty years to complete.
According to Clarke, ”We are taught that the Jews, who were the people of Christ, would reject him, and try to prevent his reigning over them in his spiritual kingdom (Philippians 2:8,9; Hebrews 1:3,8,9), and would for that crime be severely punished by the destruction of their state” (by the Romans).
Luke 19:14,27 "But his citizens hated him, and sent an envoy after him, saying, 'We don't want this man to reign over us.' (Adam Clarke Commentary: the Jewish people, who professed to be subjects of the kingdom of God).
"But bring those enemies of mine who didn't want me to reign over them here, and kill them before me.' (Adam Clarke Commentary: the Jews, whom I shall shortly slay by the sword of the Romans).
Luke 19:11-12 ”While they were listening to these things, Jesus went on to tell a parable, because He was near Jerusalem, and they supposed that the kingdom of God was going to appear immediately.
So He said, "A nobleman (According to A. C.: ”The Lord Jesus, who was shortly to be crucified by the Jews”) went to a distant country (to heaven, at the right hand of God) to receive a kingdom for himself, and then return (According to A. C.: To punish the disobedient Jews; and (again) when he shall come to judge the world”).
Matthew 22:1-3 "Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying, "The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king (The Great God) who gave a wedding feast for his son (Jesus of Nazareth).
"And he sent out his slaves (John the Baptist, the disciples, the first preachers of the Gospel, proclaiming salvation to the Jews) to call those who had been invited to the wedding feast, and they were unwilling to come.”
According to the Christian Bible, those who had been invited to the wedding feast were the Jews, who by all the prophets, had been constantly invited to believe in and receive the promised Messiah.
Matthew 22:4 "Again he sent out other slaves (servants, the Apostles), saying, `Tell those (the Jews) who have been invited, "Behold, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and my fattened livestock are all butchered and everything is ready; come to the wedding feast” (Believing in Jesus and the Gospel; the union with Christ, ”the lamb’s wedding,” Revelation 19:7-9).
Matthew 22:5-6 "But they paid no attention and went their way, one to his own farm, another to his business, and the rest seized his slaves and mistreated them and killed them.” Pointed out in v 6 is the persecution raised against the apostles by the Jews, in which some of them were martyred.
Matthew 22:7 "But the king was enraged, and he sent his armies and destroyed those murderers and set their city on fire.”
According to Clarke, by sending forth his troops, is meant the commission given to the Romans against Judea; and, burning up their city, the total destruction of Jerusalem (and the Temple) by Titus, the son of Vespasian, which happened about forty-one years after.
The Muslims also say that the punishment, the "second doom," was due to the rejection of the Message of Jesus.
Quran, Al-Isra; Surah 17:103-104 "So he (Pharaoh) resolved to remove them (Moses and his people) from the face of the earth: but We did drown him and all who were with him. And We said thereafter to the Children of Israel, "Dwell securely in the land (of promise)": but when the second of the warnings came to pass, We gathered you together in a mingled crowd. (YUSUFALI).
Qur'an, Al-Isra; Surah 17:7 "If ye did well, ye did well for yourselves; if ye did evil, (ye did it) against yourselves. So when the second of the warnings came to pass, (We permitted your enemies, Titus and his army) to disfigure your faces, and to enter your Temple as they (Nebuchadnezzar) had entered it before, and to visit with destruction all that fell into their power. (YUSUFALI).
But what does the Torah and the Prophets declare? Why was Jerusalem and the Temple destroyed, the Jews killed or exiled? Was it because they rejected Jesus of Nazareth and the Christian Gospel?
Leviticus 26:14-16,31 " But if ye will not hearken unto Me, and will not do all these commandments; and if ye shall reject My statutes, and if your soul abhor Mine ordinances, so that ye will not do all My commandments, but break My covenant; I also will do this unto you: I will appoint terror over you,.. And I will make your cities a waste, and will bring your sanctuaries unto desolation, and I will not smell the savour of your sweet odours." (1 Kings 9:6-9).
The "second doom" was due to the rejection of the Torah, knowledge of God and not the message of Jesus, or his reigning over them.
The Islamic Concept of the Love of Death:
This originated at the Battle of Qadisiyya in the year 636, when the commander of the Muslim forces, Khalid ibn Al-Walid, sent an emissary with a message from Caliph Abu Bakr to the Persian commander, Khosru. The message stated: “You [Khosru and his people] should convert to Islam, and then you will be safe, for if you don’t, you should know that I have come to you with an army of men that love death, as you love life” (Dealing In Death By Steven Stalinsky).
After a prisoner exchange in 2004 with Hizbollah, Secretary-General of that terrorist organization, Hassan Nasrallah, said, “we have discovered how to hit the Jews where they are the most vulnerable. The Jews love life, so that is what we shall take away from them. We are going to win because they love life and we love death.”
Gilad Shalit, who served with the IDF armor corps, was kidnapped in a cross-border raid by Hamas on 25 June 2006 and held in captivity until he was exchanged for 1,027 terrorists (including some of the most despicable and detestable murderers in the world, many of them serving life sentences for deadly attacks on Israelis) on 18 October 2011 (
Noam Shalit: Gilad in "Much Better Condition
" INN, 12/5/2011).
PICTURES: The Transfer of Prisoners
(Boston, Oct, 19, 2011).Even those bitterly opposed to the price Israel paid for Gilad’s freedom, cried tears of joy when Gilad stepped foot on Israeli soil in his Israeli Army Uniform saluting the Israel Army Chief of Staff.
Shalit hoped his release in exchange for hundreds of Palestinians held in Israeli prisons would lead to peace between the two peoples. I hope this deal will lead to peace between Palestinians and Israelis and that it will support cooperation between both sides." Shalit also said he would be happy if remaining Palestinians held in Israeli prisons were freed to return to their own families, so long as they wouldn't "go back to fighting against Israel" (Haaretz, 18.10.11).
A Study In Contrasts Between Israel and the Arabs: One of the freed prisoners, Hamas militant leader Yehia Sinwar, called on the movement to kidnap more soldiers.
The arrivals of the prisoners set off ecstatic celebrations in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, where large crowds and dignitaries greeted them. In Gaza, prisoners embraced and shook hands with Hamas leaders at the Rafah border crossing.
Tens of thousands of flag-waving Palestinians celebrated at a rally that quickly turned into a show of strength by the Islamic militant group, which seized control of Gaza from its rival, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, in 2007.
On a sandy lot, a huge stage was set up and decorated with a mural depicting Schalit's capture in a June 2006. Thousands hoisted green Hamas flags.
"My happiness is indescribable," said Azhar Abu Jawad, a 30-year-old woman who celebrated the return of a brother who had been sentenced to life for killing an Israeli in 1992. "We'll get him a bride and everything. I just spoke to him. He's so happy. This is a reminder, God doesn't forget anyone," she said.
In the West Bank, released prisoners were taken to the grave of iconic Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas greeted them, and several thousand people filled the courtyard outside his headquarters to celebrate.
"We thank God for your return and your safety," Abbas said. "You are freedom fighters and holy warriors for the sake of God and the homeland" (Israeli military: Schalit suffering malnutrition, AP, Oct. 18, 2011).
Abbas: Shalit Kidnapping 'A Good Thing':
PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas says the Shalit kidnapping was a 'good thing' and that he will never recognize Israel's 'Jewishness' (INN, 11/1/2011).
Abbas to build homes for prisoners freed in exchange for Gilad Shalit
: The new housing project will be funded by the Palestinian Investment Fund. Earlier, Abbas decided to award the prisoners financial grants of several thousand dollars for each inmate.
The prisoners will receive up to $5,000 from the PA and $2,000 from the Hamas government in the Gaza Strip.
During the meeting with the prisoners, Abbas said that the issue of the prisoners was at the top of the PA’s list of priorities. He said that PA negotiators raise the issue in all meetings and forums.
Abbas hailed the prisoners’ “steadfastness in the face of Israeli arrogance.” He also repeated his claim that former prime minister Ehud Olmert had promised to release Fatahaffiliated prisoners after the release of Schalit in order to strengthen the PA. (JPost, Nov 5, 2011).
Hamas Encouraged by Shalit Deal, Promises More Kidnappings:
the second phase
of the Shalit deal has been implemented and 550 terrorist prisoners
have been released
, the Hamas terror group is already planning the next kidnapping.
In a press briefing held on Sunday evening, the spokesman of Hamas’s military wing, Abu Obeida, welcomed the Shalit deal and called it “an achievement of the Palestinian resistance,” according to a Channel 2 News report. Abu Obeida then added, “Our wish was and still is to empty the prisons of the occupation of all the heroic prisoners. Our success in this historic deal will not cause us to never abandon our sacred duty to the release our warriors from behind bars” (INN,
Terrorists Actively Seeking to Kidnap Soldiers:
Terrorists have made at least five attempts to kidnap soldiers in the north since Gilad Shalit's release on 18 October 2011. The deal resulted in Hamas declaring 'victory' over Israel and declaring a new drive to kidnap Israeli soldiers.
"You can see a direct correlation between the return of Shalit and kidnapping attempts," IDF Northern Command Provost Marshal Lt Colonel Nir Golan told Israel's News 2.
"The terrorist organizations know that Israel is willing to pay high prices for the return a soldier and their motivation to kidnap a soldier is very high," Golan added (INN,
Why does God need to tell us to choose life. Isn’t it obvious that we want to live?
Sadistic Child Killer is Praised by "Mom" and Palestinian TV
It has been almost a year since the dreadful, horrific murder of five members of the Fogel family took place, when Palestinian terrorists infiltrated the town of Itamar and sadistically took the lives of Ehud, Rut, Yoav, Elad, and 3-month-old Hadas Fogel.
Watch the clip of Palestinian media in which the mother of Amjad Awad, the terrorist who stabbed these five Jews to death, praises her son and all those who helped him, as well as referring to them as heroes. Palestinian Authority TV also praised the killer (United With Israel).
Is there greater significance to Gilad’s release than the saving of one Jewish soldier? Gilad’s freedom in and of itself should be more than enough. A well known Biblical principal is that “he who saves one life is as if he has saved the whole world.”
Deuteronomy 30:15,19 says, "Behold, I have set before you today life and good, and death and evil,.. I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. You shall choose life, so that you and your offspring will live;.."
We are commanded to choose life so that we do not degrade ourselves into becoming terrorist groups or leaders that have perverted their religions and turned them in to cults of death.
When a man who walked into a home and murdered 5 members of a Jewish family at point blank range, is released from prison and greeted as a hero in Gaza….the distinction between good and evil - between those that value human life and those who throw it away with casual ease….the distinction between Israel and her enemies become totally clear.
What many people in the world refuse to understand is that Israel faces an enemy that has an entire society filled with hate and the desire to destroy the very moral fiber upon which the democratic societies that we live in are based.
Together with their released brother, Gilad Shalit, the Jewish people carry out their God given task to be a “light unto the Nations” by living according
to the moral code (the Torah) handed down by God and their ancestors….a moral heritage that dictates Biblical norms of societal ethics. This code of behavioral norms and ethics will prevent us from deteriorating into animals and sets a blueprint for the world to live together in peace.
The Torah says in Proverbs 8:32-36 "Now therefore, ye children, hearken unto me; for happy are they that keep my ways. Hear instruction (MUSSAR; Jewish spiritual wisdom), and be wise, and refuse it not. Happy is the man that hearkeneth to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoso findeth me findeth life, and obtaineth favour of the LORD. But he that misseth me wrongeth his own soul; all they that hate me love death.' (From the Shuva Israel Newsletter, February 2012).
Egyptian Official: War with Israel, US in Three Months
Egyptian Presidential Candidate Tawfiq Okasha declared last week that the Egyptian Army will engage in armed warfare against Israel, the United States and the European Union within three months.
The declaration, made in a segment translated into English by The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) on February 9, Okasha slso said that "like the Nazis, the Jews aim to rule and own the world.”
“Hitler’s principle was that the best race must become master of the world… Hitler established German Nazism to rule and own the world. On the other hand, we find that this is precisely the same philosophy as that of the Israelites and the Jews who say: we are the Semitic people, we are the best in the world, and we must rule and own the world, because the Semites are the kings of the earth and all that is upon it,” he said.
“Hitler knew that the Jews uphold the same ideology…. Hitler believed that the Germans were the masters of the world, whereas the Jews believed that they are the masters of the world.”
“Thus, a battle ensued. Either the Jews would destroy Hitler, so that they would be able to continue pursuing their goals of ruling the world, or else, Hitler would annihilate the Jews…”
He continued to state that, “Hitler was defeated because the Jews conducted a clandestine battle against him. Two of Hitler’s advisors were working for the Jews… Hence, the Jews managed to get close to Hitler, by means of his closest advisors...” (
Adolf Hitler was once asked why he hated the Jew so much. His response was “it is either them or us.”
What happens to the anti-Semites of this world. What happened to his evil Drittes Reich? And guess what will very soon happen to the evil "Fourth Reich" - the "Fourth Kingdom" or the "Fourth Beast"? "The divided kingdom" Edom; "iron and clay;" Rome/Ishmael of the Prophet Daniel (2:31-35,40-44, Ch. 7) represented by Christianity and Islam... The "botched, grizzled, ash-coloured" horse of Zechariah 6:1-8... It shall break in pieces and crush (Daniel 2:34-35,44).
