Why, they kill a Guinness, of course!

Message to Anwar al-Awlaki.

As salaam alaikum, mate, Keef Halik?

OK, I’m not a muslim, but we’ve got a few things in common.

First off, we were both born in the USA.  I bet you probably get sick when you hear Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the USA” as well.  On the other hand, that fact makes us both US citizens. And even though we both find that fact as appealing as (fill in the blank), it unfortunately is something which is a truth.

The next thing we have in common is that we have no love for the USA as it happens to function right now.  How we would handle this is a matter of opinion.  I have to admit I find that your sermon about killing Americans hits me as being pretty stupid.  Does that mean that the people listening to it should start with you?

I’d guess that we can come to an understanding as to why you said what you said, but you have to remember that beyond the stereotype, there isn’t such a thing as a typical American: after all you are a muslim and I am a Brit.  But we would agree that the stereotypical yank is a real dickhead.  But the problem is that by saying what you did about killing yanks, you play into the hands of the jerkoffs who say that Muslims (and any other non-Christian) American can’t be a proper citizen.  The Botox Bandit whose brain has turned to oatmeal from too many botox injections can say that Muslims weren’t also victims of 9-11.

Not every US citizen is unaware of what the US has done to the rest of the world.  The fact that what was supposed to be a peaceful nation has become a tyrranical one and wants to shove its culture down the throats of the rest of the world. Some of the US citizenry know that Israel is not the friend of anybody as well as the meaning of Al-Nakba and the USS Liberty.  Don’t listen to the rants of the Christian right who want to support that sick regime.

Where we differ is in how to address the wrongs.  You want to destroy.  I want to build.  We need to get rid of the negativity.

You can’t work outside the system or you play into the hands of the people who show shock and awe to the people of Iraq and Afghanistan in the hopes of lord knows what.  In fact, the best place for you to be is here and showing what good citizens the muslims are.  Tell the world of the zionist hypocracy as they say never again, yet have been perpetrating al-Nakba for over 60 years.  Tell the idiots that say only Christians can be good American citizens that the US was founded as a religiously neutral country.  Franklin wrote that “even if the Mufti of Constantinople were to send a missionary to preach Mohammedanism to us, he would find a pulpit at his service.”

You should be given a pulpit, but you need to stop saying kill Americans: especially since you are one.

The way to stop Americans from being “parties of the devil” is to show them a different way. As the slogan goes: “be the change you want to see”.

Believe in change.

By saying what you say, you show to me that you doubt God’s/Allah’s power to change people.  Even worse, you show that you lack faith in the truth of his message.  You show a hatred for yourself as an American, which you are like it or not.

Is that what you truly want to tell the world?  Or do you want to send a different message: one that affirms God/Allah.

Take it how you will, bro.

Ma salaama.

[Quran 5:4] They consult you concerning what is lawful for them; say, “Lawful for you are all good things, including what trained dogs and falcons catch for you.” You train them according to GOD’s teachings. You may eat what they catch for you, and mention GOD’s name thereupon. You shall observe GOD. GOD is most efficient in reckoning.

End time delusions

FORD PREFECT: Six pints of bitter and quickly please. The world’s about to end.
BARMAN: Oh…yes, sir, nice weather for it. Going to watch the match this afternoon?
FORD PREFECT: No, no point.
BARMAN: Foregone conclusion you reckon sir. Arsenal without a chance?
FORD PREFECT: No it’s just that the world’s going to end.
BARMAN: Ah yes you said. Lucky escape for Arsenal if it did.
Douglas Adams: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe

This topic is really big and has been around since the start of Christianity. I was going to say since Jesus died, but I don’t think he existed for loads of reasons. Even more certainly, the end times will not come in the way these millenialists claim.

To copy from the Wilderness preacher: “In his warning about the false prophets, Jesus says to these sign-seeking disciples that the events we interpret as signs of the end are always happening and will continue to happen. They are not signs that the end is here, and if some are preaching this, they are false prophets who will lead us astray.”

The message that the false prophets of the end times have is that the world is ending, so let’s not only look for the signs of the apocalypse, let’s also hurry things along. Let’s forget about seeking good in the world, making peace in the world, and improving our world. Let’s focus our attention on how quickly we can cause the world to end.

Uh, isn’t that for God to take care of, not some idiot human beings?

These people are the Christian Zionists. The people who urge support for Israel. This is because Israel plays a significant role in their bizarre “Christian” end-time theology. Indeed, these prophets equate the modern state of Israel with the Biblical New Jerusalem. They preach that America must support Israel’s desire to hold on to confiscated land in order to be on God’s side, despite the atrocities the Israeli government may carry out against the Palestinians, or even US citizens. Nevermind that Torah Scholars point out that only “G-d” can form the true Eretz Israel, not man. I guess “Jesus’s” covenant changes all that.

The prophets of Doom most egregious theological error is that the world will end in an apocalyptic battle in the Middle East, when Muslim nations will attack Israel and the world will erupt in a cataclysmic war to end all wars. Indeed, many of them express joy as they salivate over the prospects of an end-time war. The desire for this war is what creates an instability in the middle east and the hope that the US will go to fight this war. Nevermind that one of the criteria that there would be two powers, Gog and Magog, that would fight this war.

This fascination in the rapture in some circles has led to a gospel that is not socially conscious, but detrimental to society. They fixate on idea of a rapture, which will take place at a point in time in which Christians will somehow disappear from earth, apparently teleporting to heaven much like a scene out of Star Trek. The idea is that Christians will be taken from earth before things get really bad. The Left Behind series demonstrates this belief that Christians will not have to live through the mess they created for the rest of us by failing to address, or exacerbating, social problems.

But, as I stated before, this belief has been around since the beginning of Christianity. Strangely enough, it has been called Premillenialism or Millennialism even though Christ lived two millenia ago. John Calvin wrote in Institutes that millennialism is a “fiction” that is “too childish either to need or to be worth a refutation.” Furthermore, Chritianity’s history is full of stories of people who have predicted this age only to stand waiting on a hill with nothing happening. Either they go back to recalculate the date of the “End”or realise that the “end times” are merely folly.

Yet, like the myth of gun rights, the concept of the “end times” receives a lot of bandwidth on the internet. The coming of 2012 and the fact that the Mayan Calendar ends in that year. Nevermind that astronomers such as Philip Plait have stated very clearly that the Mayan calendar does not end in 2012 at all, that it is like the odometer on your car, as each section of the odometer reaches 9 and then clicks over to 0, the next number to it starts a new cycle, so that when all the numbers again reach 0 all the way across the odometer – the last number will change from 1 to 2 and the new cycle starts all over again.

There are some 50 million Evangelicals in the US who believe in this “literal truth of Bible prophecy“. You can argue theological accuracy all you want. This massive block of citizens possesses unshakable belief that the end of the world will be heralded by a series of prophetic events some of which have occurred (e.g., 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina), some of which are ongoing (e.g., the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan), and some that they are working fast and furious to cause or exacerbate (e.g., global warming and the financial crisis).

Of course, the refrain of “the World is going to End” is like the boy who screamed wolf. We’ve heard it so much that we are like Douglas Adams’ Barman that we remain blase as someone repeats it. The problem isn’t so much that these people are deluded as much as that they are working to create a mess of the world, which really isn’t very Christian behaviour. In fact, this mindset creates a very sick and nasty gospel that turns people from the message of Christ (if he existed).

Of course, his real name was יְהוֹשֻׁעַ or יְהוֹשֻׁעַ (if he existed), which is Yeshua, or Joshua: not Jesus. So, how can you have a personal relationship with the guy if you call him the same name as your Mexican gardener? So, don’t come around and tell me I need to have a personal relationship with him since I already do.

He’s one of my wife’s family and they are all meshugga!

Zionists!

Anybody who knows me, knows that I am not anti-Jewish or even really anti-Israel.

Well, other than having qualms about how the Israelis treat the Palestinians, but not every Israeli tolerates that either. So, as long as someone supports the right of return and full citizenship for everyone in the state of Israel, I don’t have a problem.

And I’d send you to http://www.jewsnotzionists.org/ as well.

On the other hand, I have a problem with Zionists.

You might be surprised who they are. Sure, there are a few Jews in that crowd, but a whole lot of them are Christians.

Christian Zionism is a belief among some Christians that the return of the Jews to the Holy Land, and the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, is in accordance with Biblical prophecy. Christian Zionism, as a specifically theological belief, does not necessarily entail sympathy for the Jews as a nation or for Judaism as a religion. Since the biblical text is filled with references to God’s chosen people, it is common for Christian Zionists to emphasize the Jewish roots of Christianity, and even to promote Jewish practices and Hebrew terminology as part of their own practice; however, Christian Zionists commonly believe that to fulfill prophecy, a significant number of Jews will accept Jesus as their Messiah, and that in the last days, such Messianic Jews will practice a thoroughly Hebraic form of Christianity.

Examples of Christian leaders combining political conservatism with Christian Zionism are Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson, leading figures of the Christian Right in the 1980s and 1990s. Falwell said in 1981: “To stand against Israel is to stand against God. We believe that history and scripture prove that God deals with nations in relation to how they deal with Israel.” They cite part of Genesis 27:29 Those who curse you [Israel] will be cursed, and those who bless you will be blessed.

The government of Israel has given official encouragement to Christian Zionism, allowing the establishment in 1980 of an “International Christian Embassy” in Jerusalem. The main function of the embassy is to enlist worldwide Christian support for Israel. The embassy has raised funds to help finance Jewish immigration to Israel from the former Soviet Union, and has assisted Zionist groups in establishing Jewish settlements in the West Bank.

Deep down, these folks would be happy if every Jew in Israel were incinerated, especially if that brings the prophetic role of Israel in the apocalyptic End Times.

Oy gevalt!
