Islam is Peace and LoveImmediately after September 11th, 2001, President George W. Bush rushed into a local D.C. Islamic Mosque and declared that Islam was a “religion of peace.”

Many Muslim propagandists in the West have deliberately twisted the meaning of the word “Islam” and say that it comes from the word “salam,” which means “peace.” These deceptions are laughed at by anybody with a mere elementary knowledge of the Arabic language.

“Islam” in its purest form means “ total surrender.” The image that word holds is of a vanquished army on its knees before the vanquisher.

Recent news from Iran of a pastor sentenced to death by hanging– Youcef Nadarkhani – have presented the “religion of peace” in its most accurate and true form. This barbaric act is what both Sunni Wahhabis as well as Shiites are calling to be the norm in all Islamic countries…and they speak hopefully of applying it to Europe. So much for the “religion of peace.”

Elam Ministries, a UK-based organization that serves the Christian church in Iran, revealed that the arrest of Christians in Iran solely for worshipping Christ has been on the increase. Under the noses of the one who is the darling of many foolish Western organizations, President Ahmadinejad of Iran has arrested 220 Christians between June 2010 and January 2011. As of January 2011, only 33 remained in prison.

When I watch videos or read speeches by Islamists in Europe, I cringe at how they speak optimistically about the implementation of these barbaric actions in the future in Europe. One of the clerics said, “It is a matter of time, when we, with our birthrate,will overwhelm the white Europeans and thus will be able to take control of all of Europe.”

As Sharia Courts spread across Europe like a noose slowly being tightened around that venerable continent, one can foresee how Catholic priests, Protestant pastors, or even Jewish rabbis will be brought before these courts with all sorts of false accusations of blaspheming Islam or their prophet. It will only take a few hangings or beheadings before most of the French and European former-Christian landscape surrenders to the power of the sword.

When Pastor Nadarkhani was asked to repent he said, “Repent means to return, what should I return to? To the blasphemy that I had before my faith in Christ?”
