Christmas Under Islam

Pages: 1 2

Earlier I discussed how mosques, some of which breed radicalization and serve as terrorist bases, flourish in America, while churches are increasingly targeted and destroyed in the Muslim world, especially the Middle East, the cradle of Christianity.

This pattern—religious appeasement of Muslim minorities in the West, religious hostility for Christian minorities under Islam—continues and manifests itself in other ways.

Consider Christmas.  The same appeasement that allows a “victory mosque” to be erected near Ground Zero, where jihadists killed some 3,000 Americans, compromises one of Christianity’s most important events.

For instance, a “Montreal suburb has decided to remove a nativity scene and menorah from town hall rather than acquiesce to demands from a Muslim group to erect Islamic religious symbols.” Contrast this with Iran, where many churches were “ordered to cancel Christmas and New Year’s celebrations as a show of their compliance and support” for “the two month-long mourning activities of the Shia’ Moslems,” a reference to the bloody flagellations and self mutilations Shias perform in memory of Imam Hussein during Ashura.

Likewise, the University of London held Christmas service featuring readings from the Quran—Islam’s holy book that unequivocally condemns the Incarnation, which is precisely what Christmas celebrates.  Meanwhile, Islam’s clerics in the West proclaimed things like “saying Merry Christmas is worse than fornication or killing someone,” since doing so is to “approve of the biggest crime ever committed by humanity”: the belief that God became man on Christmas.  As the cleric makes clear, these are not his words, but rather the words of Islam’s most authoritative clerics.

Nor are these just words.  Around the Muslim world, Christmas time for Christians is a time of threats, harassment, and fear. One can point to any number of Muslim attacks on Christians to prove this—whether churches attacked, burned, or forced into closure; whether Muslim converts to Christianity beat, killed, or imprisoned; whether Christians abused on “blasphemy” charges; or whether just sheer violence and killings of “infidel” Christians. (See “Muslim Persecution of Christians” for a list of December’s abuses alone).

    Just think of this. If Barack Hussein Obama receives a second-term every reference to Christ and Christianity will be forbidden within the US. Non-Muslims will be forced to convert or become Dhimmis, and the violence you see in the world towards Christians will be government policy.

    FORTUNATELY, Muslims who can't handle Christmas displays have taken the heat off of JEWS who can't handle Christmas displays. In other news, people who celebrate Christmas still have to tolerate a group of Semites who won't let them enjoy their holiday in peace.

      Still attacking Jews,aren't you,Flipside? "Mein Kampf" must be your favorite book,given all the venomous things it says about Jews. Is it any wonder that you're called a Jew hater,Flipside?

      I'm Jewish and I'm fine with Christmas displays. I enjoy seeing the houses all lit up with Christmas lights while I go to a menorah lighting. Freedom of religon is one of the high points of living in this country. And the freedom of stupidity that you espouse is definitely one of the low points of living here. So why don't you go to Iran or Iraq wearing a cross and see what happens to you.

        Oh, you’re overhearing the point. I like menorahs too. Who doesn’t like candelabras? Even Liberace had one.

      Flibpside, the difference is, if Jews are offended by Christmas nativity scenes, they won't blow it up or kill the family who created it. I honestly wish that people like you could live in Saudi Arabia. I would challenge you to talk the same noise that you do here in the land of the free.

    Some preacher actually read from the Qur'an in church during a Christmas service? Wow. In an earlier time, that might have gotten him burned at the stake.

  • Ain't No Dhimmi

    Flipside and other Christians

    might like to know that

    Jesus was a "very orthodox" Jew and a Master Kabbalist in Healing.

    John the Baptist was also a "very orthodox" Jew and a Master Kabbalist in Mikveh or Baptism.
