It is amazing what is occurring these days.  Once one opens their eyes, the battle we are in is apparent.  I am not talking out a physical battle or struggle but a spiritual one.  Through a combination of deception, ignorance, and naivety:  we find ourselves in an incredible situation.

How can a group boldly make the threats and statements that this Islamic organization makes without any thought of backlash?  The audacity of their statement is almost beyond belief, but you know what, this world will submit and is submitting one little piece at a time.  It will be interesting to see if any MSM outlets pick up on this. Any bets?

My bet is none will.  It really shows how far gone we are as a nation (world) and the late hour we find ourselves in.  I am not saying the people of our nation are gone,  but we have lost control of the “machine” that controls much of our lives.  Too many are asleep and caught up in this world.  I am glad to see WND will not back down.  They need our support and prayers.

In the end, the question is as Paul stated in Romans 12:1-3.

Romans 12:1-3 – (NKJV)

1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.  3 For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.

Are you of this world, conforming to it, or part of Christ’s kingdom and just a visitor?

God Bless!

Islamic group threatens WND

A man who says he represents the United Muslim Nations International organization has warned WND to “moderate” its reporting on issues involving Islam because of how Muslims may react.

The warning came in an email to WND from Faarooq al Mohammedi, who said he was asking on behalf of the Muslim organization that WND “comply as it would be in the companies (sic) best interest as we would not want to take you down the same rout (sic) as we have with other non-complaint media firms.”

The email warned WND to take “extra precaution when publishing religiously sensitive material or in creating religiously sensitive suspicions about peoples (sic) religious beliefs and practices.”

He threatened, “We would appreciate it if you could tighten your screening and moderation processes of articles to be published, any fake material published by WND will be taken as a breach of world news standards, religiously sensitive matters are to be based on solid and undeniable facts, failure to produce proofs of such published articles will give us no option but to bring about the complete removal of WND online as well as from the public in any print media.”

The essence of the warning was that WND needed to project an attitude of dhimmitude, the subservient role demanded of nonbelievers in a Muslim society. Dhimmis “recognize” their inferior status and appropriately serve the master Muslims.
