Terror threat -- U.S. churches in danger [Jihadi's: Muslims: get guns, attack churches]

Terror threat -- U.S. churches in danger Becky Yeh - OneNewsNow California correspondent - 6/30/2011 3:55:00 AM With the recent airing of an al-Qaeda video that encourages Muslims to attack religious institutions, Christian churches are being warned.

In a video released by al-Qaeda spokesman Adam Gadahn, the American-born Muslim asks jihadists to quickly obtain guns and carry out terrorist attacks against the West.

He states that Muslims are placed in the region to "do major damage to the enemies of Islam, waging war on their religion, sacred places, and things and brethren." "That's very troubling," admits Steve Amundson of the Florida Security Council.

. . .

Gadahn's statements to U.S. Muslims follow the death of Osama bin Laden. In response, the Christian Emergency Network has issued a warning for churches in the United States, and Amundson advises Christians to stay alert. Gadahn's statements to U.S. Muslims follow the death of Osama bin Laden.

In response, the Christian Emergency Network has issued a warning for churches in the United States, and Amundson advises Christians to stay alert. "Churches, just like everybody, I tell them to be vigilant; be aware of your surroundings," he urges. "Don't walk around like everything's okay, because we're in different times now, and it's time for Americans to be vigilant, be aware, [and] be alert because something could happen." Churches are also advised to have an emergency team ready and to regularly conduct emergency drills.

The article at the link includes a graphic showing that only 15.16% of churches have security measures in place as a safeguard against terror-related attacks.

58.39% do not.

26.45% poll takers are not sure.

==========================================

All this follows reports the last few years that there are 30,000 Iranian sleeper agents in place in the USA with the sole task of assassinating preachers, pastors, staff of churches.

PRAYING ALWAYS is becoming increasingly CRUCIAL, Brothers and Sisters in The Lord.

The day the muslims try this, they will for sure awaken a sleeping giant. There will be no doubt at to the shock and awe that will happen then.

So much for the religion of peace, living in peaceful co-existence with its neighbors.

And, so much for the Muslim apologists who tell us that Jesus was an honored prophet in Islam, and that Christians and Jews are honored as “People of the Book” in Islam.

I am still amazed, tragically amazed, that we are not allowed to talk about Muslim terror, even when the perpetrators shout “Allah Akhbar” (sp?). We’re not supposed to jump to conclusions about what motivates the terror.

I would like to talk to those people who have the “Co-Exist” bumper stickers, with religious symbols on them. I would like to ask them which of the major faith traditions represented has trouble co-existing with their neighbors of other faiths.

But wait!

I thought that the churches were the hotbeds of terrorisom. That’s what Janet Reno Nepolitano keeps telling us.

And, and, and, what about that RIGHT WING CHRISTIAN in Norway that shot up all of those kids and blew up a chunk of downtown Oslo?

The Media tells us we have nothing to fear from the pie-eyed followers of the genocidal, rapist, slave-trading pirate, evil tyrant, bloody savage Mohammad.

It’s the Christians, and Conservatives, and especially those that served in the Armed Forces ... THOSE are the ones we need to keep a close watch on.

Isn’t that right, Janet from the Sappho planet?

I am really surprised. No really. Strategically, this isn’t good timing. The muslims have the UK and the rest of Europe in the bag. All they had to do is wait 10 more years and the U.S. would follow suit.

With that said.

Lock and load. And get to the polls.

Not hardly.

They’re building a victory mosque at ground zero in New York and the government is on their side.

Praise God for that.

Pastor Christie used to be a police woman.

Her hubby is a hunter. We have a lot of hunters in the church.

I’ve been encouraging them to formally establish a team that’s armed etc.

We have a team that roams the parking lot and hallways insuring everything is safe etc. They are in constant radio contact.

1. Pray.

2. Fast and pray.

3. Walk close to God.

4. Lock and load.

5. Vote as though it counted. I’m pretty sure it does not given the masssive control of the process by the oligarchy.

Still, it’s a nice pretense and we may be held accountable for voting wisely and as righteously as possible.

It’s a ruse.

If churches were the real target, we would not be hearing about it... it would just happen.

It would also be the most stupid move they could make
considering the level to which our christian culture has already declined.

If they are smart enough to get BO in the white house, then they are surely smart enough to know how to keep him there.
An attack like this against BO’s worst enemy (the Christian churches) right now would ensure their own destruction and wipe out all of their investments in this country so far.

We must be guarding something they really want to attack.

But go ahead Jihadis... make our day.

You’ll soon discover why we have a 2nd amendment.

But more importantly, you’ll learn why this is one nation under God... regardless of who is in the white house.

As in guarding God’s truth about reality?


I think the oligarchy really wants chaos and death on a massive scale.

I really believe they think that they can more easily rearrange the remnants left afterwards into the super controlled tyranny and slavery of their choices.

And, certainly they want Christians off the planet.

I think evil is both smart, cunning, clever and stupid.

It depends on what perspectives about what parts of reality are under consideration.

Their arrogance makes them stupid enough to think that all their plans and constructions on reality will succeed without a great problem.

THeir arrogance also convinces them that Christians are the stupid ignorant ones.

In some respects, their reality testing is not all that wonderful.

Thanks for your interesting points.

What do you think the ruse is for, in your estimation?

Our church is a very soft target and as chief usher I am pretty much the first, second, and third line of defense against armed intruders- pacify, be polite, wait for an opening to call for help/obtain weapon. Actually, my secret weapon is all the older ladies that would berate anybody foolish enough to interrupt the service.

>>> What do you think the ruse is for, in your estimation?

Maybe I didn’t use the right word.

It’s a distraction.... meant to cause fear in the christian community AND to cause us to shift defenses away from something they were going to attack but apparently cannot now.

I have no idea what it is for, but the timing with our current debt crisis and legislative stalemate is just too coincidental.... in my estimation.

I have a sneaking suspicion that someone doesn’t want us to find out that we will actually not default on Aug 2nd, and was not counting on an apparently firm for once in their lifetimes republican congress. I think maybe a monkey wrench is in someone’s machinery and they want it out.

But... total speculation on my part.

It will be interesting to see what happens if the jihadis try this at a church, and several of the church's members are also 'personally protected'. Other jihadis might just think twice about repeating THAT stunt at another church.

Interesting speculations.

I certainly don’t think anything is a coincidence.

And, I believe the debt crisis was carefully engineered over a considerable period of time.

And, I believe the perps are soooo powerful and wealthy all on their own, they COULD wipe it all out by fiat if they wanted to. Alas, they want to do the opposite.

They really are hell-bent on comprehensive destructiveness.

It’s a major hobby and occupation of satan, their boss.

Regardless and as a way of . . . being—his/their nature.

I doubt it. No one has done anything yet enforcing the Rule of Law in this country. Why should church shootings encourage the feds to arrest terrorists. If anything, Obama will bring out the national guard and gun down Jews and Christians. Libs will say Christians are just too radical clinging to their guns and religion and we need to reach out to Islamic terrorists so they don't get mad at us.

This would be the socialists’ dream come true. A bunch of dead Christians and other fearing going to church.

They have been directing Muslim rage at Christians in the media and in Obama’s government. It’s their latest diversity hate for power game.

It would be a huge mistake if Muslims were stupid enough to take the bait.

I have a stack of these I printed up in my glove box:

I've stuck them in the windshield of a few cars I've come across that have those brain-dead "COEXIST" bumper stickers.

Note: I wouldn't print very many with an ink jet printer, it will use a lot of ink. I'll probably try to use Photoshop or similar to invert the colors if I run out of the dozen or so I printed.
