THE SCOURGE OF ISLAM
Jones held a mock trial of the Koran in his church in the state of Florida on
March 20, 2011, found the Koran guilty and subsequently burned copy in the
sanctuary. It was recorded on video that was later posted on YouTube. The result
was large riots in Afghanistan where some nine UN workers were killed when their
compound was stormed by an enraged crowd. In an interview, Terry Jones said he
felt no responsibility for the death of these people but it I feel that he is a
publicity hound who is using the issue of the Koran to make a name for himself.
As a Christian pastor he has no business provoking non-Christians to anger. It
is easy for Jones to do his protest safely in Florida while innocent people in
Islamic nations have to die a horrible death at the hand of a raging Muslim
ABOUT THE ISLAMIC FAITH?
Islam is an intolerant religion that is based on the doctrine of Muhammad, who
coined the slogan, “There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger
of Allah.” Muhammad proclaimed in 610 B.C. that all prophets of the Old
Testament had failed in their mission for God on this earth, including Jesus.
The only man qualified to do where these others had failed was Muhammad.
Furthermore, Muhammad taught that Allah was not interested in the day-to-day
life of people, therefore Muslims cannot come to him for personal petitions.
Islam is a religion of fatalism and submission.
In order to bankroll this new religion, Muhammad and his followers started to
attack caravans traveling in the Arabic peninsula and robbed the merchants of
their goods and money. Since Allah was not able to finance Muhammad, he took
care of it himself through robbery and murder. This is how Islam was started.
When he was driven out of Mecca, Muhammad fled to Ethiopia but later returned to
the Arabian peninsula and settled in the city of Medina. In time he had enough
followers to attack Medina and subdue it and later moved south and sacked Mecca.
The call for a holy war (Jihad) was issued and his followers fanned out to
conquer the world and subdue it by the sword. They were a ruthless army of thugs
and murderers who conquered nation after nation and left a trail of blood behind
them. This spirit of murder and destruction has never left the Muslim faith and
it is fueled by the hateful writings in the Koran itself. Islam is not by any
means a peaceful religion but one that is violent and hateful. Muslims despise
the unbelievers whom they call infidels.
There are three Muslim main groups:

in control of Iran and are just as cruel and militant as their cousins in Saudi
Muslims are the largest group in the Islamic faith and their cruelty can be seen
in all the bombings in Iraq and the merciless mobs in Afghanistan and Indonesia.
faith teaches that non-Muslims are infidels with no value. Christians in Muslim
nations are severely persecuted while Muslims in the Western nations are free to
build mosques and propagate their faith. Muslim governments constantly take
advantage of Western nations while they secretly hate and despise them.
You cannot win Muslims for Christ by burning the Koran or calling them names. We
have to recognize this is how they were raised and don’t know any better. They
are demon possessed since their father is the Devil but we can win them for
Jesus through prayer and fasting. When they hate us, we can turn that around and
tell them that God loves them. Love conquers more than the sword. Praise the
