What is a
Muslim Soldier?"Across the Centuries" 7th grade textbook tells our
"Assume you are a Muslim soldier on your way to conquer
Syria in the year-A.D. 635. Write three journal entries that
reveal your thoughts about Islam, fighting in battle, or life in the
desert." (pg 68)
Our government insists that Islam is "peaceful" and Colin
Powell asks for Muslim educators, leaders, clerics to move here,
to help "educate" us." Apparently Muslims are
complying as they are heavily funding the documentaries and
educational resources touting Islam
"Islam" is not a country but a religion spread across many nations.
If it is so peaceful, why are there Muslim soldiers? Why are
they "fighting in battle." Why are our children asked to assume
they are fighting for their cause? What is the cause they fight for?
The "peace of Islam"?
Therein lies the truth, because the "peace of Islam" can only be
achieved after Islam conquers the world. Then and only then will
there be "peace" according to the Quran and Hadith, Islam's holy books.
That is their definition of "peace." It begins after all the world has
either submitted to Islam or is slaughtered. How the Imams and
sheiks must be laughing as America promotes the "peace" of Islam!
America is taught that Christians and Jews are to be tolerated as "people of the book." This is true as
the Quran. However, in order to achieve
this status in Islam, a Christian or Jew must pay the poor tax and
offer prayer to Allah or be slaughtered.
Is this the religious freedom that the
ACLU is fighting to embrace in public school? "Christian, you
may survive, but first dedicate your life to Allah or die."
Christians who deny tribute to Allah are tortured and raped. This is no exaggeration, this is
happening in the Sudan and many other countries today.
There are those in America who insist John Walker Lindh receive the
death penalty for fighting for the Taliban, which he joined after
converting to Islam. Think about it, John Walker Lindh was first
requested to "assume fighting for Islam" by AMERICAN SCHOOLS.
If true Islam is not associated with the
terrorists and is in fact peaceful, then why the need of "Muslim
soldiers" that our children are told to assume they are? Whom
does the Muslim soldier fight? Exactly what kind of Muslim soldiers are our public
schools teaching our children to assume the identities of?
If there are soldiers, there are military leaders. Who are the
military leaders of Islam if there is no specific country of Islam?
They have no country to be attacked.
There is no land to protect. Their description sounds very
similar to the terrorist leaders in news today. Public school
admission that there is such a thing as a Muslim soldier is to admit
there is an authentic call for Muslims to fight, and they actually
teach our children to assume the position!
"For as a man thinks in his heart, so is he."
There are probably as many Muslims that do not read and obey their
Quran as there are Christians that do not read and obey their Bible.
There are those who profess to be Muslims that do not kill. There are
those who profess to be Christians that do not love.
So do we hate American Muslims? NO. But must we teach
our children to assume they are Muslim soldiers? Must we present
a violent religion as one of peace and gentleness? Must we
present Muhammad's claimed spiritual awakening as FACT to
impressionable American children? Muhammad, who led more than 20
slaughtering raids killing Jews and Christians, and masterminded more than
60 others. Do we present what he wrote as interesting and fun
practices of imagination for children to embrace?
Only if we want our sons and daughters to share a jail cell with
John Walker Lindh. Instead of a jail cell, he should receive an
"A" in today's American classroom. After all, he could turn in his
whole ordeal with the Taliban as an expansive, though late, class
project. He did what his teachers taught him. He lived
what they told him to assume.
On February 8, America heightened the terrorist attack
warning level. Why? Because of a Muslim holiday. Are we still in
denial about Islam? LOVE the Muslim, but lure our children to Allah?
