Christians asked to bow in submission to Allah
wnd ^ | 2/21/11 | Aaron Klein

JERUSALEM – In what Egypt's Christians fear may be a sign of things to come, a senior Islamic cleric asked Christians to bow in Muslim prayer in an act of submission to Allah.

On Friday, famed Egyptian theologian Yusuf al-Qaradawi, a spiritual leader to the Muslim Brotherhood who hosts a popular Islam-themed television show on Al Jazeera, led the Islamic prayer services in Cairo's Tahrir Square, the epicenter of Egypt's uprising.

While he repeatedly offered nods to Egypt's Coptic Christians, unmentioned in most news media accounts of the ceremony was that Qaradawi asked all in attendance, specifically singling out Christians, to bow in Islamic prayer.

A Coptic Christian at the event told WND the request was intimidating.

"Whether he meant to or not, this was asking Christian to bow in an act of submission to Islam and Allah," said the Christian, who asked that he named be withheld.

What’s the problem? (/sarc) Our children are told to do it in public schools, as part of their mohammedist-for-a-week projects. It’s all part of the multi-culti-diversity-sensitivity wacksh*t.

As I see it, the muslims, especially those in the US have become more militant, more demanding and more aggressive since Obama has taken office. I don’t think it is an exaggeration.

Huckabee should mention this in his response to CAIR who is demanding that he apologize for his “intolerance” on the subject of opening up Christian churches in America to lend-use by Muslims.

Let’s see what CAIR says about this find example of tolerance.

“O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.”

-- Daniel 3: 16-18

From the Muslim perspective being permitted to submit rather than being killed out of hand is the height of compassion and tolerance.

Remember Shadrach, Meschak and Abednigo. They didn’t bow, they didn’t bend, they didn’t burn. Going along to get along can cost you Eternity.

Exodus 15:11 “Who among the gods is like you, O LORD? Who is like you—majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders?


Exodus 20:23 Do not make any gods to be alongside me; do not make for yourselves gods of silver or gods of gold.

Exodus 32:8 They have been quick to turn away from what I commanded them and have made themselves an idol cast in the shape of a calf. They have bowed down to it and sacrificed to it and have said, ‘These are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up out of Egypt.’

Exodus 34:14 Do not worship any other god, for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.

Deuteronomy 5:7 “You shall have no other gods before me.

Deuteronomy 6:14 Do not follow other gods, the gods of the peoples around you;

2 Kings 17:35 When the LORD made a covenant with the Israelites, he commanded them: “Do not worship any other gods or bow down to them, serve them or sacrifice to them.

Psalm 81:9 You shall have no foreign god among you; you shall not bow down to an alien god.

Isaiah 42:8 “I am the LORD; that is my name! I will not give my glory to another or my praise to idols.

Jeremiah 7:9 “’Will you steal and murder, commit adultery and perjury, burn incense to Baal and follow other gods you have not known,

Jeremiah 25:6 Do not follow other gods to serve and worship them; do not provoke me to anger with what your hands have made. Then I will not harm you.”

Jeremiah 35:15 Again and again I sent all my servants the prophets to you. They said, “Each of you must turn from your wicked ways and reform your actions; do not follow other gods to serve them. Then you will live in the land I have given to you and your fathers.” But you have not paid attention or listened to me.

Hosea 13:4 “But I am the LORD your God, [who brought you] out of Egypt. You shall acknowledge no God but me, no Savior except me.

Without further comment.

To Egyptian theologian Yusuf al-Qaradawi, a spiritual leader to the Muslim Brotherhood, I have a promise from God to you:

Philippians 2:9-11: "Therefore also God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those who are in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."

They wouldn’t bend, they wouldn’t bow, they wouldn’t burn.

23And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.

24Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonished, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king.

25He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

Nice job, Obama. Nice job building an opinion offensive against the Muslim Brotherhood and supporting a longtime ally.

Thanks for helping to make the lives of Egyptian Copts exponentially more deadly, Obama.

Thanks for nothing.

Asshole.

Before I retired, I worked with a decent Muslim fellow who died unexpectedly of a heart attack in his early 50s.

One of our group members was a feminazi Hispanic girl.

When we showed up at the mosque service for the memorial, they told us that women had to take off their shoes and stay in the back.

I’ll never forget the earful she gave them, LOL.

Let us not forget that most of the apostles died a martyr’s death on a cross just like Jesus. In the end, God, Christ and us Christians will prevail. But we should not sugar coat the interim possibilities.
