CNN coverage of Hajj "proves it's a question of time when Islam will be shining all over the world"
JihadWatch ^ | 12/12/08 | Aaron Klein

Posted on 12/12/2008 10:06:30 AM PST by Sammy67

Since CNN devoted so much time to covering the Hajj, a number of prominent Muslims -- including known terrorists and jihadists -- have opined that "We are defeating these people [American "evangelicals"] through their homes in their lands."

"Terrorists gush over CNN coverage," by Aaron Klein for WorldNetDaily, December 12 (thanks to Doc Washburn):

JERUSALEM – CNN's extensive coverage this week of the annual Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca is a defeat for evangelical Christians and proves it is only a question of time before Islam will be "shining all over the world," according to Muslim terrorists in Gaza speaking to WND.

Starting last Saturday and continuing until Wednesday, CNN provided regular coverage of the Hajj, the largest annual pilgrimage in the world. The fifth pillar of Islam requires every able-bodied Muslim to travel to Mecca at least once in their life in a demonstration of solidarity with fellow Muslims and in an act of individual submission to Allah.

CNN aired several live reports from this year's Hajj, including a live shot of the end of the pilgrimage in which Muslims in attendance encircle the Kabah – the holiest Islamic building in Mecca – seven times, in a counter-clockwise direction. The news network also provided

How CNN liberals can be so happy about that is beyond me.

Muslims would kill all the homosexuals, those found cheating on their husbands, and anyone who dressed in anything not black and covering oneself from head to toe, with what we hear in the media.

Mecca is a segregated city that has the death penalty for non-muslims. Saudi Arabia is an Islamic supremacist nation, non-muslims are second class citizens.

None of this is ever discussed in the MSM when they gush about Islam. None of the world’s billion muslism shed a tear or give it any thought when they bow to the capital of the Islamic empire 5 times a day every day every year.

Well, America will most likely be devastated by Islam — first by infiltration and then secondly by a coordinated attack on Israel, where Muslim sleeper cells put America *out of commission* by massive internal attacks across the nation.

When Islam makes its move on Israel, they will “take out” America and the U.S.A. won’t be on the “world scene” anymore. They will be battling internally for a long while, a sort of civil war and fights and battles clear across the nation. They won’t be in any position to do anything in the Middle East, while Israel is attacked by the Muslim nations for the purpose of driving the Jews into the sea.

Part of that move on Israel will also be prompted by the removal of 10-30% of the U.S. population, instantly, during the Rapture. A loss of even 10% of the population would be devastating, as it would consist of people, across the board in all areas of life and in important positions, too.

An example of that may be Washington’s vision of the three major battles or wars that the U.S. has (which threatens its viability). That last one that Washington saw is probably the one that is coming. Whether the vision is true or not, the present situation of what the Islamic terrorists are planning to do to the U.S. when they launch their major attack on Israel is very real, nonetheless. And, according to the Bible, the Rapture is very real, too.


George Washington’s Vision

This afternoon, as I was sitting at this table engaged in preparing a dispatch, something seemed to disturb me. Looking up, I beheld standing opposite me a singularly beautiful female. So astonished was I, for I had given strict orders not to be disturbed, that it was some moments before I found language to inquire the cause of her presence. A second, a third and even a fourth time did I repeat my question, but received no answer from my mysterious visitor except a slight raising of her eyes.

By this time I felt strange sensations spreading through me. I would have risen but the riveted gaze of the being before me rendered volition impossible. I assayed once more to address her, but my tongue had become useless, as though it had become paralyzed.

A new influence, mysterious, potent, irresistible, took possession of me. All I could do was to gaze steadily, vacantly at my unknown visitor. Gradually the surrounding atmosphere seemed as if it had become filled with sensations, and luminous. Everything about me seemed to rarefy, the mysterious visitor herself becoming more airy and yet more distinct to my sight than before. I now began to feel as one dying, or rather to experience the sensations which I have sometimes imagined accompany dissolution. I did not think, I did not reason, I did not move; all were alike impossible. I was only conscious of gazing fixedly, vacantly at my companion.

Presently I heard a voice saying, `Son of the Republic, look and learn,’ while at the same time my visitor extended her arm eastwardly, I now beheld a heavy white vapor at some distance rising fold upon fold. This gradually dissipated, and I looked upon a stranger scene. Before me lay spread out in one vast plain all the countries of the world — Europe, Asia, Africa and America. I saw rolling and tossing between Europe and America the billows of the Atlantic, and between Asia and America lay the Pacific.

“Son of the Republic,” said the same mysterious voice as before, “look and learn.” At that moment I beheld a dark, shadowy being, like an angel, standing or rather floating in mid-air, between Europe and America. Dipping water out of the ocean in the hollow of each hand, he sprinkled some upon America with his right hand, while with his left hand he cast some on Europe. Immediately a cloud raised from these countries, and joined in mid-ocean. For a while it remained stationary, and then moved slowly westward, until it enveloped America in its murky folds. Sharp flashes of lightning gleamed through it at intervals, and I heard the smothered groans and cries of the American people.

A second time the angel dipped water from the ocean, and sprinkled it out as before. The dark cloud was then drawn back to the ocean, in whose heaving billows in sank from view. A third time I heard the mysterious voice saying, “Son of the Republic, look and learn,” I cast my eyes upon America and beheld villages and towns and cities springing up one after another until the whole land from the Atlantic to the Pacific was dotted with them.

Again, I heard the mysterious voice say, “Son of the Republic, the end of the century cometh, look and learn.” At this the dark shadowy angel turned his face southward, and from Africa I saw an ill omened specter approach our land. It flitted slowly over every town and city of the latter. The inhabitants presently set themselves in battle array against each other. As I continued looking I saw a bright angel, on whose brow rested a crown of light, on which was traced the word “Union,” bearing the American flag which he placed between the divided nation, and said, “Remember ye are brethren.” Instantly, the inhabitants, casting from them their weapons became friends once more, and united around the National Standard.

“And again I heard the mysterious voice saying “Son of the Republic, look and learn.” At this the dark, shadowy angel placed a trumpet to his mouth, and blew three distinct blasts; and taking water from the ocean, he sprinkled it upon Europe, Asia and Africa. Then my eyes beheld a fearful scene: From each of these countries arose thick, black clouds that were soon joined into one. Throughout this mass there gleamed a dark red light by which I saw hordes of armed men, who, moving with the cloud, marched by land and sailed by sea to America. Our country was enveloped in this volume of cloud, and I saw these vast armies devastate the whole county and burn the villages, towns and cities that I beheld springing up. As my ears listened to the thundering of the cannon, clashing of sword, and the shouts and cries of millions in mortal combat, I heard again the mysterious voice saying, “Son of the Republic, look and learn” When the voice had ceased, the dark shadowy angel placed his trumpet once more to his mouth, and blew a long and fearful blast. “Instantly a light as of a thousand suns shone down from above me, and pierced and broke into fragments the dark cloud which enveloped America. At the same moment the angel upon whose head still shone the word Union, and who bore our national flag in one hand and a sword in the other, descended from the heavens attended by legions of white spirits. These immediately joined the inhabitants of America, who I perceived were will nigh overcome, but who immediately taking courage again, closed up their broken ranks and renewed the battle.

Again, amid the fearful noise of the conflict, I heard the mysterious voice saying, “Son of the Republic, look and learn.” As the voice ceased, the shadowy angel for the last time dipped water from the ocean and sprinkled it upon America. Instantly the dark cloud rolled back, together with the armies it had brought, leaving the inhabitants of the land victorious!

Then once more I beheld the villages, towns and cities springing up where I had seen them before, while the bright angel, planting the azure standard he had brought in the midst of them, cried with a loud voice: “While the stars remain, and the heavens send down dew upon the earth, so long shall the Union last.” And taking from his brow the crown on which blazoned the word “Union,” he placed it upon the Standard while the people, kneeling down, said, “Amen.”

The scene instantly began to fade and dissolve, and I at last saw nothing but the rising, curling vapor I at first beheld. This also disappearing, I found myself once more gazing upon the mysterious visitor, who, in the same voice I had heard before, said, “Son of the Republic, what you have seen is thus interpreted: Three great perils will come upon the Republic. The most fearful is the third, but in this greatest conflict the whole world united shall not prevail against her. Let every child of the Republic learn to live for his God, his land and the Union.” With these words the vision vanished, and I started from my seat and felt that I had seen a vision wherein had been shown to me the birth, progress, and destiny of the United States.

The Islam terrorist sleeper cells are in the U.S. ready to make the attack, across the nation, at the right time, the time of the attack on Israel, in order to “take out” the U.S. as a supporter of Israel. This, in combination with the many millions missing from the Rapture, will be devastating for the U.S.

Well, definitely the islamo-fascist religio-government idealogy of Islam is evil and despicable — to be sure. And while we do defend ourselves against the evil designs of these Islamo-fascist terrorists — we’re really in no position to rid the world of this evil disease.

The only one who will be in a position to rid the world of this Islamo-fascist evil disease of the human condition is (and only) Jesus Christ. When He does come again, He will be battling the Islamo-fascists and will be killing millions of them before coming back to Israel to set up the world-wide kingdom, and ruling and reigning as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

He will be ruling over all the nations of the world, including the U.S. and all the western nations and other nations of the world. It’s at that time that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob will *absolutely eliminate* every last single adherent to this Islamo-fascist religion. There will be not a *single one* left after Jesus Christ goes to war with them and kills every last single one of them.

If there are 1.2 billion adherents to that evil religion of Islam, then there will be 1.2 billion dead people at the hands of Jesus Christ. What they say they will do to the Jews in their “last day” — Jesus Christ will do to them — every last single one of them.

That’s what the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob says He will do to those who will attack and kill the Jews in Israel and try to remove them from the community of nations in the world.

It won’t be at “our own hands” — to be sure...

Saudi Arabia also has some of the closest ties to the American Government and one of OBLs original reasons for hating the US was our military bases in Saudi Arabia.

Meanwhile Carter allowed the secular government of Iran to get taken over by todays tyrants! What is going on with our middle eastern policy! Now Joebiden wants to split up Iraq and let civil war run wild, who do you think they’ll blame for that??

We may not be able to persuade people to follow the original bible, instead of the rantings of a dead warlord who rewrote the bible, but we don’t have to sit idlely by while they discriminate and oppress non-muslims.

Freedom of religion is a God given right. Our founding fathers established this nation in part to do away with religous oppression. If you follow the history of some nations, the populace was expected to convert from Catholicism to Protestantism to Catholicism etc whenever a new king took charge.

What’s more, the Saudis fund the Western expansion of Islam. There can be no separation of church and state when a foreign State is constructing mosques in our nations. Separation of church and state is not just a prohibition on OUR government, it applies to what goes on IN our country.

There is no cultural exchange going on, Saudi Arabia is closed to any non-muslim missionaries or practice of faith.

How many of the world’s one billion muslims even have a choice in the matter?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Mosque_Seizure

The Grand Mosque Seizure on November 20, 1979, was an armed attack and takeover by armed Islamic fundamentalist dissidents of the Al-Masjid al-Haram in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, the holiest place in Islam. The insurgents declared that the Mahdi, or redeemer of Islam, had arrived in the form of one of the insurgents’ leaders, Abdullah Hamid Mohammed Al-Qahtani and called on Muslims to obey him.

The seizure shook the Islamic world as hundreds of pilgrims present for the annual hajj were taken hostage, and hundreds of militants, security forces and hostages caught in crossfire were killed in the ensuing battles for control of the site. The siege ended two weeks after the takeover began with militants cleared from the mosque.[1]

...

The Bin Laden family and business resources were allegedly involved in this conflict. Dr. Daly, an adjunct scholar at Washington’s Middle East Institute and author of Jane’s Intelligence Review, says, “It has been reported that one of Osama’s half brothers was arrested as a sympathizer of the takeover but was later exonerated.”

...

Another explanation for Mahrous’s involvement might be that he is a double agent.

...

The insurgents were anti-Western and included in their demands, broadcast from the mosque loudspeakers, the cutoff of oil exports to the United States and expulsion of all foreign civilian and military experts from the Arabian peninsula.[25] Nonetheless, in Iran, Ayatollah Khomeini told radio listeners, “It is not beyond guessing that this is the work of criminal American imperialism and international Zionism.”

...

Perhaps the most disturbing development to come out of the 1979 takeover of the Grand Mosque was the eventual revelation of prime organizer al-Utaibi’s connection to the Saudi Arabian National Guard.

The rebels’ leader, Juhayman, was captured, and he and 67 of his fellow rebels—”all the surviving males”—were tried secretly, convicted and publicly beheaded in the squares of four Saudi cities.


I don’t see it addressed in this:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wahhabi#Saudi_sponsorship

But I’ve read that the Saudis got into funding Wahabism abroad to keep the radicals at home from ousting the Saudi royal family. Specifically as an action after they seized the mosque in Mecca.

lefties are against the stereotypical 1950s America (G-d, family, religion, community, proper education, capitalism, etc). and since they look at islam and think, enemy of my enemy is my friend... they will embrace the muslims and continue to bash America at every turn.
