by Frederick Hoehn, copyright 2012. Many months ago, an airline passenger from Yemen was apprehended and arrested after trying to get into the cockpit of an airline flight in the U.S. He was said to say, "God is Great," in Arabic as he attempted to get into the cockpit. |
The judge held him without bail, though the man's attorney argued he was no risk to the public. No risk to the public? Muslim terrorists are always a risk to the public, as we learned on 9/11/01.
A friend of the Yemeni man was surprised by his behavior, since the man was so quiet and well-behaved. Yes, but he was a Muslim, as was Major Hasan at Ft. Hood, TX.
Major Hasan was thought of as a good citizen for years. But then something happened. Major Hasan was given orders.
There's nothing unusual about a soldier getting orders. It occurs on a regular basis. You go to boot camp at some Army base, and then you get orders to somewhere else, perhaps to Advanced Individual Training at a different Army base.
Then you get orders to somewhere else, according to the needs of the Army, and all soldiers whether officer or enlisted understand that. At any time, you might get orders, transferring you elsewhere.
But Major Hasan got orders to a combat zone, and he didn't like those orders. He just didn't want to go there. Can't fault a man for having some personal preferences, can you? But, didn't he take an oath when he joined the Army to obey orders and to loyally support the government of the United States? Of course he did. And if he had refused to take that oath, they wouldn’t have let him into the Army.
So what to do, what to do? Oh, Hasan thought, "Here's what I'll do. I don't have to obey these orders and go where I don't want to go. I'm a Muslim, so I'm guaranteed to be promoted to heaven if I die a Muslim martyr. That's what I'll do, I'll die a Muslim Martyr and go to heaven rather than obey my orders."
"Just never mind about the oath I swore when I entered the Army. And just never mind that God said, All liars shall have their part in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone." (If you go to the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, then you don't go to heaven.)
And some Muslim clerics have promised men that if they die Muslim martyrs, they'll get 72 virgins to be their wives in heaven. Oh, really? But didn't Jesus say that people in heaven neither marry nor are given in marriage? Yes, but the Muslims don't read the Bible, so if you promise them 72 virgins, they don't know that Jesus said that can't happen.
So Hasan got his guns and started shooting people. Sooner or later someone would have to shoot him back so he could die a Muslim martyr.
Unfortunately for Hasan, things didn't go quite according to plan. He did get shot, but it didn't kill him, it only paralyzed him. Unfortunately, also, when he was promised to go to heaven by dying a Muslim martyr, he was lied to, for it is written, "No murderer has eternal life abiding in him."
But what about the Yemeni man? What set him off? Could it have been the recent killing of his fellow Muslim terrorist, Osama Bin Laden? Well maybe that is what provoked the Yemeni into action to try to do something for Allah.
The Fox News reporter said the Yemeni man said, "God is great," in Arabic, but no, I think he said, "Allah akbar." That's what Muslims say when they're about to commit a terrorist act. "God is great" would not be an accurate translation.
There was an actual man called Fritz, and he had a son named John. Next door lived a man named Pete. Pete did not have a son named John. Now someone who had never seen either Fritz or Pete, but only heard about them might say, "You know, I think that perhaps that fellow Pete may be the same person as that guy Fritz, just called by a different name."
But the answer to that is, "No, Fritz and Pete couldn't be the same person because Fritz has a son, John, while Pete does not." Is that good logic? Yes it is.
Similarly, Allah can't be God, because God has a son, Jesus, while Allah does not.
So then, "Allah akbar" is not correctly translated "God is great," since Allah is not God, since Allah doesn't have a son, Jesus.
And, according to a guest on the Zola Levitt TV program, "Allah is great" is not the correct translation, either. A better translation, he said, would be, "Allah is greater." But isn't that pretty much the same? No, the Muslims are saying that their Allah is greater than the Judeo-Christian God. But is Allah really greater than God? No, God is greater than Allah, if there is such a being as Allah.
On the west coast of the United States, there is the State of California. How did California get its name? California was the name of a fictitious place in a novel, and then became the name of a state in the U.S. The name stuck, of course, but the place that California was named for never existed.
It is not exactly known who Allah is, but he is surely not God. God and son Jesus created the worlds and animals, and Adam, the first man. Allah was not involved in the creation.
Another way to show that Allah is not God is that God has said, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord." But the Muslims believe in taking vengeance for themselves, so then their Allah is not the same God who tells us not to take vengeance.
There has been discussion on the subject of "racial profiling." Some have said, "It's not right to harass Muslim airline passengers just for being Muslims."
But isn't it true that Muslims are very much more likely to be Muslim terrorists than people who are not Muslims? Of course it is, especially when Muslims are taught that if they'll die as Muslim martyrs, they're guaranteed to go to heaven. Who doesn't want to go to heaven? But Muslims don't know that Jesus said, "You must be born again."
