Focus on the Family: a true focus

1Cor6..9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of GOD? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminates, nor homosexuals.
18 Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.

GOD in Ex20:14 and Deut5:18 clearly forbade adultery, then in Wisdom3 and Sirach23
explains the extent of this common sin, adversely affecting the illegitimate forever.
GOD in 2Chr7:14 provides for forgiveness, the true meaning of Jesus' words in Jn8:3-11,
repent, turn, "sin no more," till true remission Acts2:38 Rom3:25 into 1Jn3:6.
GOD rarely offers special grace (notwithstanding Jn1:17) to bastards, in compliance
with Wisdom3 and Sirach23, spiritually lost, bound, cast out, so eternally cursed Gal4:22-31.

Wis3..16 But the children of adulterers will not reach maturity, and the seed of unlawful union will be destroyed.
17 For even if they attain length of life, they will be of no account, and in the end their old age will be without honour.
18 And if their end come swiftly, they will be without hope or consolation on the day of decision.

Sir23..22 So also with the woman who is unfaithful to her husband, and offers as heir her son by a stranger.
23 First, she has disobeyed the law of the Most High; second, she has wronged her husband; third, in her wanton adultery she has raised up children by another man.
24 Such a woman will be dragged before the assembly, and her punishment will extend to her children.
25 Her children will not take root, her branches will not bring forth fruit.
26 She will leave an accursed memory, her disgrace will never be blotted out.

Sons of Ishmael - Wildmen Gen16:11,12
GOD is allowing the sons of Ishmael or his spiritual offspring
to harass and kill in the name of a false god, a god of hate.

    We are not fighting a war on terrorism. Terrorism is the means by which our enemy chooses to wage war against us, but we should not confuse its tactics with the nature of the enemy itself. The enemy has an ideology. It has a command structure. It has troops. And it is clear in its aim: nothing short of the destruction of our civilization.
    The enemy is militant Islamic fundamentalism. The command structure is made up of hundreds of mullahs around the world, including some living in this country, who preach death to the infidels. Its troops include not just the thousands of trained terrorists but millions of others who support the mullahs and finance the terrorists through their donations to radical Islamic groups. To pretend otherwise risks not only your own defeat, but that of the moderate Muslim world as well.
    In his 1996 book The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order, Harvard political scientist Samuel P. Huntington presciently described "a quasi war develop[ing] between Islam and the West." Even before the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Huntington noted, "many more Westerners have been killed in this quasi war than were killed in the 'real' war in the Gulf." The direction of Islam as a religion has become increasingly threatening to non-believers, not just in the West but throughout the world. Its threat extends beyond the Middle East to Asia and Africa, even to the United States, where some fundamentalist imams spread their hateful doctrines protected by our First Amendment.
    Not all, or even most, Muslims are our enemies, certainly. Indeed, the moderate Islamic nations are on the front lines of this war and have been among its first casualties, starting with the Iranian revolution in 1979. Some of the most brutal tactics of the fundamentalists have been used against fellow Muslims in Egypt, Morocco, Afghanistan and elsewhere. Nonetheless, the response of virtually every moderate Muslim leader to the threat posed by fundamentalists has been to accede to the fundamentalists' interpretation of Islam, and to further the Islamization of all social, cultural and political institutions in their countries. Even Turkey, which since Mustafa Kemal Ataturk's policies of secularization in the 1920s and 1930s has been the most pro-Western Muslim nation, has become more Islamist in the last few years. As Huntington observed, every Muslim country in the world is more Islamist today than it was two decades ago, with the exception of Iran.
    Despite what our leaders keep telling us, Islam is not inherently a peaceful religion. Unlike Christianity, in whose name wars have been fought but without any Scriptural basis to support those wars to be found in the teachings of Jesus Christ, Islam can find explicit justification for its jihad or "holy war" within its sacred text.


    The Koran instructs believers to "slay the idolaters...make war on the leaders of unbelief--for no oaths are binding with them--so that they may desist. Will you not fight against those who have broken their oaths and conspired to banish the apostle? They were the first to attack you. Do you fear them? Surely god is more deserving of your fear, if you are true believers. Make war on them: god will chastise them at your hands and humble them." The Koran is filled with elaborate instructions on the conduct of war, the methods of executing the infidels, the rewards that will accrue to those martyred in a holy war.
    The very nature of fundamentalism is to take these instructions literally. And there is plenty of historical precedent. For nearly 1,000 years, Europe was under nearly constant siege from Islamic invaders, from the first Moors who conquered Spain in 710 to the last Ottoman attack on Vienna in 1683. So long as the trend within the Muslim world today is toward a fundamentalist interpretation of Islam, the West will continue to face a new threat to its survival.

GOD is showing us
the typical spiritual descendants of Ishmael
are operating in Africa, Asia, Europe, Middle East and USA.

    The fact that native-born Muslim Europeans are committing terror acts within their own countries shows that this Islamist malignancy long predates Iraq, long predates Afghanistan and long predates Sept. 11. What Europe had incubated is an enemy within, a threat that for decades Europe simply refused to face.
    One of the reasons Westerners were so unprepared for this wave of Islamist terrorism, not just militarily but psychologically, is sheer disbelief. It shockingly contradicts Western notions of progress. The savagery is a return to a primitiveness that we in the West had assumed a progressive history had left behind.
    But the problem is far deeper. It is essentially a civil war within a rival civilization in which the most primitive elements are seeking to gain the upper hand.

accepts, condones, even supports evil acts - terror

    Bush read the words of an Al Qaeda spokesman, Suleiman Abu Gheith: "We have the right to kill four million Americans--two million of them children--and to exile twice as many and wound and cripple hundreds of thousands. Furthermore, it is our right to fight them with chemical and biological weapons."

    Then, Bush declared: "In all these threats, we hear the echoes of other enemies in other times, that same swagger and demented logic of the fanatic." He added: "Like their kind in the past, they will flame and fail and suffer defeat by free men and women."

    By the way, you might be wondering by now where the great procession of Arab leaders lining up to apologize to America for Nick Berg's murder has gotten to. Only a few Middle Eastern men want to saw the heads of Jews and infidels. But an awful lot more -- the majority in some states -- are either noisily approving or silently accepting of such an act. Winston Churchill wrote of two "curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries" -- not only the "fanatical frenzy," which you can see in the orgiastic pleasure Berg's killers take in their clumsy work, but also the "fearful fatalistic apathy," to which many more Arabs are prone.

It's the latter that makes them such easy waters for the sharks to swim among.
    We always come back to that strong horse/weak horse thing. But the point to remember is that Osama bin Laden talked about who was seen as the strong horse: It's a perception issue. America may be, technically, the strong horse but, thanks to its press and its political class, the administration is showing dangerous signs of climbing into the rear end of the weak-horse burlesque suit. If America retreats into its own fatalistic apathy, there will be many more Nick Bergs in the years ahead.

GOD, the true GOD of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob,
commands us to "resist evil," whether the school bully,
neighbourhood gangs, or evil leaders (Hitler, Hussein), all are equal in His sight.

GOD's Freedom Principles apply
Peace and Harmony, even for the Muslim majority.
