If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?
– Psalms 11:3
I live in California. I’ve only been through one gigantic earthquake, the one in 1994. It’s the last one I ever want to experience.
It was about 4:30 am in Beverly Hills; wife Shirley and I were asleep in our bedz … when it seemed the whole world was suddenly coming apart – over, around and beneath us. There was a cavernous roar, the house was trying to shake apart, glass was falling from every shelf, the floor seemed everywhere like a huge skateboard. It seemed like the end of the world.
In the first few seconds, Shirley was screaming, “Pat! OH GOD! Help us!” As I met her at foot of the bed in the dark chaos, I kept trying to assure her we’d be OK, and I held her tight as we rode out a minute or two in the doorway of our bedroom, quoting Scriptures and praying aloud. After about three minutes of nightmarish upheaval, the quake quieted momentarily, and we made it out the front door, fully expecting to see our two story house cave in behind us.
Thankfully, it didn’t. Our house and its contents were spared much of the more horrible destruction that others experienced, but we’ll never, ever forget what that earthquake was like. There was nothing reliable to hold on to; even the ceiling might fall on us (as our waving chimney tried to), and the floor might open up and send us heaving into a newly open chasm beneath us. We couldn’t call authorities to help us, and what could they do anyway? It was like an antechamber to hell.
Well, my friend, I may be sharing some similar feelings with you right now, as we look at what’s happening in and around the United States of America.
The foundations of our nation are being shaken to the core. A government that was intended, as Lincoln proclaimed, to be “of the people, by the people and for the people” has degenerated into a largely unresponsive, irresponsible self-serving and self-perpetuating machine, led by a clique of far-left socialistic “progressives” who intend to control virtually everything, and who will dictate to the people what they can and cannot do.
And while our very constitutional foundations are being shaken and sometimes just willfully ignored, we are being assaulted and infiltrated by a religious ideology that seeks world domination, and is, by its scriptures and directives attributed to its prophetic forebears, commissioned to convert, subjugate – or kill – every last person on earth. This ideology already has over a billion adherents, and it is growing in our bowels daily.
I assume that multiplied thousands of Muslims are good, decent and compassionate people; but they likely may be like so many Christians and Jews who really don’t know all that their scriptures command. And when, and if, they read verses like Surah 9:5 (the famous “verse of the Sword”), they dismiss or disregard them as “not for today.”
But the Muslim Brotherhood is composed of dedicated, zealous people who do regard and revere those verses that describe Christians and Jews as “pigs” and worse.
David Horowitz, in his most recent Freedom Center newsletter, frontpagemag.com, reports:
“Shortly after 9/11, the FBI uncovered a Muslim Brotherhood plot to set up front groups in the U.S., like the Muslim Student Association,to give the appearance of being a part of America’s social fabric. The FBI learned that wasn’t the Brotherhood’s intention at all. Instead, Brotherhood documents revealed that the group wants to destroy America from top to bottom.
“For more than 80 years, the Muslim Brotherhood has been the fountainhead of radical Islamic groups, and was created to advance Islam across the globe. The Brotherhood has helped finance at least a dozen radical Islamic terror groups, including Hamas and al-Qaida.”
David has done extensive, documented research through the Freedom Center linking the Muslim Brotherhood to the Muslim Student Association, and it’s all for you to read in a 40-page report by the Investigative Project on Terrorism. As he says, “The Brotherhood knows it’s easier to poison younger minds with their agenda of hate and destruction. So they’ve funded Muslim Student Associations throughout the United States and Canada. Today there are more than 600 chapters of the MSA providing fertile ground for recruiting terror on our own soil!
Posturing themselves as benevolent members of the campus community, the MSA has sponsored countless radical Islamic speakers around the nation (mainly on college campuses). They routinely disrupt pro-America, pro-Israel speakers, and in many cases, they make no secret of sharing the Shariah goals of the Muslim Brotherhood–the very goals found in the Brotherhood’s motto:
God is our objective, the Quran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader, jihad is our way,and death for the sake of God is our highest aspiration.
I’ve known and admired David for years now and marvel at his courage in personally confronting leftists and communists in academia, face to face, on our biggest university campuses. In one recent and particularly rancorous session, he got an angry young MSA female student, who was lividly in his face, to blurt out: “Yes! I am committed to jihad!” Here, in our living rooms, on our campuses, right among our young college students!
Friend, are you not feeling the earthquake right under our feet, threatening everything we are and have?
Perversely, our very liberties, our tolerance and protection for religious expression, are being used against us to weaken and destroy our foundations.
Most alarmingly, our president, raised by Muslim fathers and taught Islamic tenets in his early and impressionable years in Indonesia, seems to think America can work with the Muslim Brotherhood, with Director of Intelligence James Clapper claiming the organization is “largely secular.”
Is it possible, even credible, that he thinks the Brotherhood can be like the Benevolent Order of Elks or our Rotary Clubs? That they will “fundamentally transform” themselves into the direct opposite of all they’ve stood for these last 80 years? Is this another example of “never hearing” the rants of his preacher, Jeremiah Wright?
