It seems like every day there is a new report of a suicide bombing in some Islamic country or the foiling of some potential terrorist attack in a non-Islamic country. Today’s news includes a report of an honor killing in Arizona where an Iraqi expatriate ran over his 20 year old daughter with his car because she had become too westernized. Of course the CNN story did not mention that the man was Muslim. I guess they didn’t feel the need to because it is common knowledge that virtually all honor killings are usually done by Islamic men.
The media’s political correctness of not pointing out the Islamic motivation of terrorist perpetrators and honor murders amazes me. It is also fascinating to observe that Islam has actually grown in popularity as more of their acts of violence are reported. I once thought that Islam was doomed to fall out of favor when their Jihadists finally manage to use a weapon of mass destruction which is inevitable. But based on the obvious trend, I no longer believe that that will happen; indeed, it looks like the terrorist use of a nuke will only accelerate people jumping on-board the cause of Islam. The president of Iran has made it clear that he holds this perspective as well.
The universal willful ignorance that Islam is behind most of the growth of violence in the world today shows the degree to which Satan has control over this world. I’m convinced that Islam has a key role in Satan’s conspiracy to control the world. Yes, demonic influences are the real impetus behind all conspiracy theories.
As frustrating as it is to see Islam getting a free ride in the press, we can take heart that God sees what is happening and the day will come when justice will be done. With the accelerating pace of violence emboldening Satan’s faithful to engage in even more carnage, it doesn't look like we have long to wait before the Lord takes His bride. So, “we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ” (Titus 2:13, NKJ).
