>America, Europe, and Islam

>In a speech televised on Al-Jazeera TV on April 10, 2006, Mu’ammar Al-Qadhafi, the Libyan leader, predicted that Allah would grant Islam a great victory in Europe. He also said that Europe and the United States should agree to become Islamic, or else declare war on the Muslim world.

Qadhafi said that the Old Testament and the New Testament are forged books and have been superseded by the holy book of Islam.

Qadhafi said that today there are 50 million Muslims in Europe. This large presence of Muslims in Europe is a sign that Allah will bring all of Europe to the faith of Islam, “without swords, without guns, without conquests.” He believes that this large population of Muslims in Europe will help Europe to become a Muslim continent in less than a century.

Albania, a Muslim nation, is a member of the European Union and so is Bosnia, another Muslim nation, a nation whose population is about fifty percent Muslim. In a few years Turkey will also join the European Union. At the present Turkey has a population of 50 million people, most of them Muslims. When Turkey becomes a member of the European Union, the Muslim population of Europe will be more than 100 million people.

Qadhafi’s speech tells much about Muslims’ views of the Bible and of Jesus. His speech should be a wake-up call to people in Europe and in the United States.

    >Qadhaffi sounds like the King of Assyria (Isaiah 10) and the Chaldeans (Habakkuk 1) who attribute victory over God’s people to their own hands (Isaiah 10:13), or their own gods (Habakkuk 1:11).Europe and North America may, indeed, become Islamic. But it will not be because of Allah, but because of YHWH, who will keep his covenant promises (Deuteronomy 28). When Europe and North America were Christian cultures, and nations who were primarily faithful Christians, and inheritors, thereby, of the covenant promises for the faithful (Deuteronomy 28:1-14), we were ascendant and fruitful. Now that we are unfaithful Christians, we are set to reap the covenant promises for the unfaithful (Deuteronomy 28:15ff), which are, remarkably, that YHWH will send aliens among us to become the head, while we become the tail. If Islam becomes the head, we can be sure that it was YWHW who did this “astounding” and “unbelievable” (Habakkuk 1:5) and “dreadful” (Habakkuk 1:7) work.The only response left to us is the prayer of Habakkuk, when God revealed this disconcerting truth to him: O LORD, I have heard your speech and was afraid; O LORD, revive Your work in the midst of the years! In the midst of the years make it known; In wrath remember mercy. (Habakkuk 3:2)

    >No matter the difference of opinion I think everyone will agree that Islamist are burning and killing all around the globe, and that soon they will own Europe… (It’s statistic, 10 million or so in france today will be a majority in 20 years) So I think this is the begining only of a very long war. Bush may be a bad stratege, but I think the intention was sound. My views in the future: Iran will be stopped from developping nuclear capabilities, however, it will unite with Irak and Syria and soon all arab countries will join under its lead (a lot for fear to loose what they have). Europe will know some chaos from time to time, until it falls most definitly. It is likely Arab country will end by owning nuclear devices and that Israel will be their first taget. It is presumeable that Israel will retaliate in the same manner and that all middle East will fall before the rise of the new Europe against the US first then the rest of the world.Yes this is a dark picture, but as i said, i believe we’re in the ends of time, but just the begining…
