Now it's France's turn. A French magazine has published a cartoon showing the so-called prophet Mohammed, naked. France has closed 20 of its embassies in Muslim areas around the world and riot police are on call.
Does anyone else see what's happening? Muslims immigrate to Western countries and those with Western values. Then something happens to set them off and the host governments bow in submission to their "superior religion" in fear of their lives.
This is only going to get worse. The more we submit, the more of these incidents we are going to see. If you look at history there is always a pattern with Muslims. When they get to a certain percentage of the population they rise up and demand special rights. Then, as their numbers grow, they penetrate government, either through elections or by other means. When they have sufficient strength they take over and make everyone else submit to their authority and sharia law.
This is what they say. These are their objectives. To think we can negotiate with such fanaticism plays into their hands. Perhaps this is the beginning of the end. I have long believed that the two lines of Abraham are coming down to the final conflict. Anyone disagree? Got evidence to the contrary? Watch that eastern sky and listen for the trumpet.
