Khaled Mash'al, leader in the Hamas movement which won the Palestinian elections in Jan 2006 gave a new speech in Damascus which was transmit on al-Jazeera TELEVISION on February third 2006. He advised the European nations to apologise to Islam because: 'Tomorrow, our nation will sit on the throne worldwide. This will be not a figment of the imagination, but a fact. Tomorrow we will guide the world, Allah willing. Apologize today, before remorse will do you no good. Our region is moving forwards, and it is in your interest to respect a victorious nation. ' His speech went on to say of which the first period of the Islamic world conquest will be the elimination of Israel and the beat from the West inside Iraq.
Iranian Leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad agrees. He said in Iran's holy town of Qom on 5th January, 'We must have confidence in the fact that Islamic is not really confined in order to geographical borders, cultural groups and countries. It's a common ideology that qualified prospects the planet to rights. ' He feels his main quest would be to 'pave typically the path for the marvelous reappearance of Vorbeter Mahdi, may Thor hasten his reappearance. ' According to be able to Shiites, the 12th imam disappeared since a child back in 941. They believe he may return and be referred to as 'Mahdi' and reign on earth for 7 years, before causing a final view plus the end of the world.
At the same time the entire Islamic world has been roused to fury over cartoons imprinted in a Danish newspaper. We have got evidence (available on request) which displays how a cartoons line continues to be cleverly manipulated by Islamic foncier with all the aim regarding uniting Muslims in opposition to the West so as to create submission to Islamic demands also to defend Iran plus Syria against skin from the UN. It is far from a co-incidence that Denmark is usually set to assume the rotating obama administration of the U. N. Security Council -- at typically the very time that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is likely to recommend Iran towards the Protection Council and requirement sanctions. Simultaneously typically the Security Council would like to question Syria plus the regime of President Assad about typically the murder of Lebanese President Hariri. To be able to portray Denmark because 'an enemy regarding the Prophet' would be helpful to the Islamic planet in creating typically the idea that almost all censure of Muslim countries is part of an anti-Islamic european conspiracy.
In the particular UK, Islamic market leaders are using typically the cartoons controversy to set pressure on the particular government to reduce what can be stated within the press regarding Mohammed. Patrick Sookdheo from the Barnabas Finance comments on this particular, 'If we move laws and even just create a fresh code of training for the push specifically to protect Mohammed, I fear that could be the thin end associated with the wedge. Through self-imposed censorship we're able to soon move to more severe situations. Inside Pakistan there offers been a required death sentence given that 1991 for 'defiling the name' associated with Mohammed. ' He or she goes on to show just how the Muslim Action Committee is using the cartoons furore in order to reverse the eliminate suffered with the Muslims when the House of Commons all of a sudden voted to complete the Racial and Religious Hatred Expenses within a form which usually does not provide typically the protection for Muslims which the government had intended.
Typically the cartoon controversy resulted in a demonstration inside the streets of London with devise calling for 'infidels' to be beheaded and showing help of suicide terrorism. One said 'Europe you'll come moving when Mujahadeen come roaring. ' There was widespread attaque at this display and moderate Muslims sought to distance themselves from that. However days later a poll regarding British Muslims uncovered that 45% prefer the establishment associated with Shari'a (Islamic) legislation in Britain.
This particular is in line with the globe vision of Islam which from the particular days of its creation is always to bring typically the world into subjection to Allah as defined inside the Koran. Mohammed's mission has been universal, using the aim of not simply preaching, but also changing all present societies into a great Islamic society ruled by the laws of Allah, known as the Shari'a.
Therefore Islamic grants radical Muslims a mandate to improve the existing community into an Islamic society, to make Islam supreme, plus thus dominate every aspect of society. This will be not only the want of fundamentalists just like Osama bin Stuffed, but would seem to be the desire of a giant number associated with Muslims around the globe.
This specific desire is reflected in a record written in 1980 entitled The Islamic Movement in typically the West by Khurram Murad who had been after that the head in the Islamic Foundation with branches around typically the world. He outlined his Islamic wave and the formula of how in order to bring it concerning in the Western.
On-page three of his document he posed the query: 'What is definitely an Islamic movement? ' This individual goes on in order to answer: 'An Islamic movement is a great organised struggle to change the existing society into an Islamic society based on the Koran in addition to the Sunna, create Islam, which will be a code regarding entire life, supreme and dominant. '
Such views will find ample justification in the Koran which teaches that Muslims must be supreme over no Muslims and need to be engaged within a jihad in order to achieve this until the Day associated with Judgement.
'So drop no heart, neither fall into despair. For you should gain mastery, in case you are true in faith. Combat those who think not in Thor nor the Last Day, nor maintain that forbidden which hath been unacceptable by Allah in addition to His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the particular Book (i. electronic. Jews and Christians), until they pay out the Jizya (poll tax to be paid by no Muslims surviving in the Muslim society) along with willing submission, plus feel themselves subdued. ' Sura At-Tawba 9: 29 (Yusuf Ali's Translation).
Therefore will Islam guideline the world? Of course expressing typically the aim of world domination and attaining it are two different things. Hitler promised 1000 12 months Reich but inside 1945 Berlin lay down in ruins and the Nazis were broken. The Communist Manifesto spoke of the inevitability of world wave and Communist dominance, but in 1989 the Berlin Walls came down as well as in 1991 the Soviet Union fell. I remember talking to wild eyed Maoists at Speaker's Corner inside London during the 1972s who said their particular brand of The reds would be victorious as well as the thoughts associated with Chairman Mao would last 10, 000 years. Now capitalism is at a China plus Mao's Red Book is really a collector's product. Does the same point happen to the particular Islamic radicals? Do we find any hint about this in the prophecies of the Bible?
The particular Islamists have opting for them is the wealth generated by simply oil reserves in Middle Eastern countries that has financed a lot of the propagate of Islam worldwide. It also offers a powerful indicates of exerting strain on the rest of the planet. 'Don't upset all of us if you need a regular supply of the oil required to keep your program going. ' They also have a new wide network associated with mutual support organizations with the mosques in addition to Muslim organisations in addition to the idea of 'umma' which ties Muslims to each other and means that if one is genuinely offended all are genuinely offended.
There are a number of items they do not have going for them however. While it is true that the particular West is dependent on oil the majority of of which comes from Muslim countries, typically the Muslims are also influenced by the Western world to offer technology plus trade. If they will destroy the Western they also is going to be destroyed in typically the process. In addition, it needs to be said that regardless of the concept of 'umma' typically the Muslim world is divided along several lines - Sunni and Shi'a, reasonable and radical, Arab and non Arab. In fact typically the biggest killers associated with Muslims nowadays usually are other Muslims. Between non Muslims terrorism and the kind of agitation let loose by the animation controversy has improved a sensation of fear in addition to hostility towards Islam in much of the world.
Whenever we come to the Bible there usually are two major issues we need to take a look at relevant in order to this question. To begin with the issue associated with Israel and typically the surrounding nations. Right now there are a number of passages inside Bible prophecy which usually show that at the end regarding this age typically the Jewish people may return to His home country of israel and make the particular once desolate property a fertile 1 again (Ezekiel 36). Jerusalem will be focal point of world attention (Zechariah 12. 2-3).
The surrounding nations will be hostile to His home country of israel and fulfil typically the words of Psalm 83. 4, 'Come let us reduce them off from becoming a nation, that the name associated with Israel might be remembered no more'. In verses 6-8 of this Psalm you will find a list of nations, which may be identified along with Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon, Gaza, Syria plus Iraq. In 1948, 1967 and 1973 Israel has experienced to fight wars for survival towards superior armies from these countries bent on pushing the Jewish state in to the sea.
In this Psalm there is a reference in order to Zeba and Zalmunna, who said, 'Let us take with regard to ourselves the pastures of God with regard to a possession' (v 12). We find guide to Zeba in addition to Zalmunna in All judges 8. They were kings of Midian, leaders of the particular army, which came against Israel inside the days associated with Gideon. In Judges 8. 21 we read: 'Gideon arose and killed Zeba and Zalmunna in addition to took the decorations that were on their own camels' necks'. The Hebrew word applied for 'ornaments' is usually 'ha saharonim', an unusual word, which will be correctly translated inside the New Ruler James Version since 'crescent ornaments'. The crescent ornament revealed dedication towards the moon god of paganism. Today there exists a world religion, which furthermore uses the crescent as its symbol - Islam. Islam embodies everything used of in this specific Psalm in its attitude towards His home country of israel. It is the particular dominant religion regarding the countries, which often surround Israel. However the countries which come against Israel in Psalm 83 are usually defeated and are not successful in their aim.
Typically the prophecy of Ezekiel 38-9 goes more and earns the great power to the uttermost to the north leading the soldires of Gog and Magog which consist of Persia inside their amount. While there is significantly debate amongst bloggers as to typically the identity in the nations involved undoubtedly where you get in order to in case you go to the uttermost northern of Israel - Russia. Russia today is emerging from the humiliation of typically the collapse of the Soviet Union in order to become a major player in globe affairs having its huge oil and gasoline reserves and its growing arsenal regarding weapons. Russia offers a large Muslim population within their borders and the Asia republics associated with the former Soviet Union have Muslim majorities. Although The ussr became unpopular together with the Islamic foncier over its policy in Chechnya, it has historically favoured the particular Arab states aggressive to Israel. Chief executive Putin has invited Hamas leaders in order to Moscow and typically the Russians are supplying the fabric for the construction of the Iranian nuclear power place in Busheir which usually is the trigger of the present problems. If the United States or Israel attacks Iranian nuclear services it could deliver Russia into the fray from the Middle East powder keg.
Whether Russia will be the subject of the prophecy is controversial (we have a new tape / COMPACT DISC on the subject available about request at ï¿½3 including postage). Exactly what is not debatable is that Usa / Persia is. In addition to the possibility regarding Russia, the nations which come against Israel on this occasion are Islamic. They come with the intention of wiping out Israel but these people meet their disaster around the 'mountains associated with Israel' as God intervenes directly plus destroys those armies. (Ezekiel 38. 18-23).
Required to ask is whether delete word this event is usually the same as Armageddon (Zechariah 14, Revelation 16 and 19). There are usually a number of explanations why I think it is not necessarily (given on the tape already mentioned). If it arrives some time prior to Armageddon one offers to ask 'What would be the particular effect on typically the Islamic world regarding this event? ' Not even close to conquering typically the world frist by mastering Israel, Islam would suffer a humiliating defeat as a result of God not any human power. The Bible says that this particular event will cause the Lord (i. e. the Our god of Israel) to become 'hallowed in typically the sight of several nations' (Ezekiel 39. 27). The obvious implication of the is usually that Islam will not succeed in judgment the world.
The Scriptures teaches that 'the Antichrist is coming' but in addition that 'many antichrists have come' (1 John a couple of. 18). It is usually my view of which the Islamists are among the 'many antichrists' who will come before typically the end of days and nights however, not the Antichrist. While they have many characteristics regarding antichrist - refusal of Jesus since Son of God, persecution of Christian believers, a goal associated with worldwide rule : there are a new number of highlights of the Antichrist that do not effectively fit in along with Islam. The primary ones are these.
In accordance to 2 Thessalonians 2. 3-4 the other coming of Jesus will be preceded from the revelation associated with the 'man associated with sin... who opposes and exalts himself above all which is called God or even that is worshipped, in order that he rests as God within the temple regarding God, showing himself that he will be God. ' Put simply he opposes not only the true Lord but all gods. Also this is shown in Daniel 11. 37 and Revelation seventeen. 16-17. He also proclaims himself to be god (just as the Roman Caesars did). Both these aspects of the particular coming Antichrist usually are entirely contradictory to be able to Islam which believes in submission to be able to Allah and is usually wholly opposed in order to anyone claiming in order to be a our god corresponding to Allah.
In Revelation 13 typically the false prophet sets up a picture to be able to be worshipped by all and leads to all to receive the mark regarding the beast with out which they cannot buy or sell. The worship of images is usually forbidden under Islam so, just how could an Islamic leader deliver in such a method? This also suggests a highly technological society which provides developed the implies to give everybody a number plus to control these people by some type of mark which gives them the ability to be able to buy or offer. This fits inside much more using a society dominated from the technology developed on the western part of the country.
The Bible shows that at typically the end of times the Beast or Antichrist will principle the world: 'And authority was provided him (the beast) over every group, tongue and nation. ' Revelation 13. 7 and that he plus the dragon (Satan) who gives him or her his power are worshipped by all peoples. As all of us have seen Islamic aspires to world dominion. Yet, in my opinion it does not have the ability to deliver with this. A person can threaten countries with terrorism plus cause chaos but this does not necessarily make you well-liked. The implication regarding Bible prophecy is the fact initially the Antichrist will be popular offering people 'peace and safety' (1 Thessalonians 5. 3) and become worshipped inside return, just like Hitler was extremely popular whenever he came to be able to power and was worshipped by individuals raising their palms and saying 'Heil Hitler'. It is usually hard to observe how Islam may ever be in such a position worldwide.
