We hear a lot about radical Islam these days, but my experience with Muslims has been delightful. After college my first job was selling office equipment. I sold to the Royal Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. (No kidding.) They were opening a new embassy outside Chicago. Both the manager and his male secretary asked me out…. I declined.
Later, when I wrote résumés, some of my clients were Muslims. Since I always ask a lot of questions, I asked a client if a Christian woman could marry a Muslim man. He said yes, but a Muslim woman could never marry a Christian man because it would degrade her.
I like candid answers, even if I don’t agree with them.
For a brief time, I was a mortgage broker. I worked with a Muslim Realtor, who lived in America for 20 years. He was upset by America’s moral decline. He saw naked people on TV with prisms over their “body” parts. He said, “What more is there to show? Pretty soon they’ll being having live sex on TV.”
I agreed with him. He was a man of values.
My daughter attended a Christian university that had a 50% Muslim population. The keynote speaker at her graduation was a Muslim, not a Christian. The speaker spoke about morality, but I would have preferred a message on the Gospel.
In short, my encounters with Muslims has been positive.
Then what about these ISIS terrorists?
The struggle between Christianity and Islam is nothing new. Historically, they have been at odds with each other for centuries. Each group wants to spread their ideology. If Charles Martel, the king of France, hadn’t stopped Muslims from infiltrating Europe, history would have taken a different turn. Later, King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella kicked the Muslims out of Spain.
Now to modern-day America. Here are the facts:
- Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, mastermind of the 9/11 plot, hasn’t been brought to justice.
- Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood attacker, hasn’t been brought to justice.
- The Boston bombers haven’t been brought to justice.
- The Muslim, who cut off the head of an Oklahoma woman, hasn’t been brought to justice.
- But when Officer Darren Wilson was accused of shooting a black man in Ferguson, Missouri, his trial was scheduled immediately. They also tried him for civil rights’ violation.
Why does President Obama want to close Gitmo?
If Muslim terrorists are brought to the United States, they are read their Miranda rights and given the right to a trial by jury.
Does this make sense?
Maybe it does.
When President Obama spoke at Georgetown University, he made them cover up a Christian symbol that represents Jesus.
What Christian would do this? Read the article for yourself. Obama’s Georgetown Speech.
I saw the interview between Barak Obama and George Stephanopoulos, when Obama slipped and admitted he was a Muslim. (Old George had to correct him.)
As a Christian woman, I would never slip and say “My Muslim faith” because I’m not a Muslim!
Watch the video montage and decide for yourself. Obama admits he’s a Muslim.
Is this why only 19% of Americans approve of Obama’s foreign policy?
Is this why Obama won’t bring Islamic terrorists to justice?
