The failure of 'multiculturalism'.

Having commenced the mini-series on the Ten Commandments, I had hoped to not have more than one post in between any two of the series.  However, the ongoing situation in France has persuaded me to abandon that idea.

In just two days, about seventeen people have been murdered in Paris, in just three separate, but apparently related, incidents.  These murders, of both civilians and police officers, have all been carried out by Muslims.  The media, of course, insist that these are "extremists", and that real Muslims do not condone such actions. Most of our political leadership in the UK has been quick to criticise the point of view given by Nigel Farage during a brief interview, by confirmed 'leftie', Jon Snow (not 'leftie' enough, of course, to have passed up the chance to get his son into lucrative TV work!) on the Channel 4 News programme, on the evening of the Charlie Hebdo terrorist murders.  However, Mr Farage was only, as he appears frequently to do, telling is "as it is".   So-called 'multiculturalism' has failed.  With Islam, it is almost bound to fail.  Muslims are much less likely to integrate than are other ethnic minorities.   For example:

"It is he (Allah) who has sent his Messenger (Muhammad) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam), in order for it to be dominant over ALL other religions, even though the Mushrikoon (disbelievers) hate it."  (Qur'an, chap.61, surah 1)Not much encouragement to integration there!

Or, again, "So if you (mushrikoon) repent it is better for you, but if you turn away, then know that you can not escape Allah. And give tidings of a painful torment for those who disbelieve." (chap.9, surah 3).  Not much that is 'peaceful' there!

If people do not embrace Islam and implement the Shari’a (Islamic law) on their own accord, it becomes an obligation upon the Muslims to fight and implement Islam. In countries such as Britain and the USoA, their people have clearly rejected to embrace Islam and will never choose to live by the Shari’a. Therefore, the only two ways in which these countries can become under the domain of Islam is by a group of Muslims rising and overthrowing the government, or an 'Islamic state' (sound familiar?) being established elsewhere and coming to conquer these nations.  

There are, of course, 'moderate' Muslims.  However, as the video clip below demonstrates, they might as well not be there!  The ultimate aim of Islam is the world-wide Caliphate (where Islam dominates all), and there are those who will do whatever it takes to achieve that end.  Thankfully, there will only ever be one world-wide rule - that of the King of kings, and Lord of lords; the Son of God Who loved us, and gave Himself for us. (see Gal.2:20, etc).  Of His Kingdom and rule there will be no end.  Let those of us who look forward, with great anticipation, to that day pray for Muslims - even the most misguided - that their eyes,and hearts, may be open to Him.

"And they entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and with all their soul, but that whoever would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, should be put to death, whether young or old, man or woman."
The phrase "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?" comes to mind!

I prefer that those who leave a comment do so NOT from behind the cover of "Anonymous". However, lest I be accused of cowardice, I will leave this one up for a week or two, and will then delete it (unless the author wishes to identify him/herself!).

An absolute requirement in the interpretation of any part of the written Word of God is that any text be taken in context. Now, when we look at the words that you have quoted, we find that they are recorded in II Chronicles 15:12-13. This chapter has to do with the reform movement instigated by the new king, Asa - one of those of whom it could be recorded that he "... did what was good and right in the eyes of YHWH his God." (14:2) Asa was concerned to restore the nation, that had largely deserted the true worship of YHWH, to a right relationship with Him. (see15:8ff). The reference in the verses that you quote apply to their own people, not to any other group! You also appear to be unaware of the Hebrew fondness for hyperbole. It is seen, e.g., in Luke 14:25ff, where the Lord Jesus says that "If any one comes to me
and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple." No-one who heard Him speak those words, at the time, would have considered them in the same way in which a 21st century 'westerner' might do.
So, your comment is without foundation. By the way, the "phrase" to which you refer is from the lips of the Lord Jesus (Matt. 7:5) - words spoken to those who would be people of the New Covenant; not to those who were people of the Old!
