Religion and Satanism

By Samuel L. Blumenfeld
April 01, 2002

It is hard to believe that a religion that inspires such hatred, murder, and wanton destruction perpetrated in the name of Allah, the Islamic god, is not ruled by Satan. Yet, we are supposed to believe that this religion is equal to Christianity and Judaism in its promotion of brotherly love and peace. It promotes just the opposite. Mohammed was himself a kind of Osama bin Laden who had people he didn't like murdered by his followers. While the followers of Jesus Christ were instructed to spread the gospel by the Word and not the sword, the followers of Mohammed spread conversion to Islam by the sword.

According to Robinson's Dictionary of the Holy Bible published in 1833, "Satan is the author of evil, both physical and moral, by which the human race is afflicted especially of those vicious propensities and wicked actions which are productive of so much misery; and also of death itself." (Rev. Edward Robinson was a Calvinist Professor of Sacred Literature at the Theological Seminary, Andover, Massachusetts.)

Christ Himself referred to Satan when He rebuked Peter in Matthew 16:23: "Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offense unto me: for thou savourest not the things that are of God, but those that be of men."

An equally dramatic passage is in Zechariah 3:2: "And the Lord said unto Satan, The Lord rebuke thee, O Satan; even the Lord that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?"

And we read in Revelation 12:9: "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him."

Finally, in Romans 16:20 we read: "And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen."

We also read in Genesis 16:11,12 that the Arabs are the descendants of Ishmael, the child of Hagar, Sarah's maid, impregnated by Abraham. "And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him."

Servants of Satan
And it was the descendants of Ishmael who became the followers of Mohammed and then spread the religion of Islam by the sword.

What kind of religion would condone using children as suicide bombers? The child has become the willing servant of Satan, and his parents who favor such sacrifice can be compared to the worshippers of Moloch, who cast their children alive into the fire before their idol.

Another manifestation of Satanism is the willingness of Muslims to believe blatant lies rather than face the truth about their co-religionists, because even they recognize the horrible evil that was perpetrated on September 11, 2001.

Rakan Al-Majali, a columnist for the Jordanian government daily Al-Dustour, wrote: "It is obvious that Israel is the one to gain greatly from this bloody, loathsome and terrible terror operation, and it seeks to gain further by accusing the Arabs and Muslims of carrying it out."

The Iranian daily Kayhan commented: "It is known that 4,000 Jews worked at the WTC in New York and that these people did not come to work that day." One might ask, did they come to work the next day or file for unemployment benefits?

The Father of Lies
The father of lies has had a field day among Islamic journalists who are so blinded by their hatred of Israel that they blame their own evil on the Jews.

Islam is a religion ruled by Satan, which has acquired a certain respectability mainly because the average Christian does not want to believe the worst of human nature. Even the President, a born-again Christian, has gone out of his way to vouch for the peaceful, loving nature of the Islamic religion. Thus, Rev. Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham, had his head handed to him for calling Islam "wicked and violent." Yet, many Americans are in no mood to trust these lovely people.

Can anyone under the control of Satan be trusted? The President seems to think so. In fact, one of his Secret Service agents is an Arab-American. This particular gentleman got into trouble when, on Christmas Day, he boarded a plane in Baltimore on his way to Texas to join the First Family. The only problem was that he was armed and his papers were not in order. So the pilot asked him to leave the plane so that his identity could be checked. According to the pilot, the agent became "confrontational and abusive." In the meantime, it was alleged that a flight attendant found in the pocket of the agent's seat a copy of a book, The CrusadesThrough Arab Eyes.

Ann Coulter, in her column in World Net Daily of January 9, 2002, wrote:

On account of being delayed for a day, the Secret Service agent, Walied Shater, charged the airline singled him out because he is an Arab. Never mind the gun. Pursuing his paranoid fantasy, he immediately hired a lawyer and is demanding an apology and a pledge that American Airlines crew be subjected to sensitivity training classes. Naturally, he hasn't ruled out monetary damages.

What's the President of the United States doing having a man like that protecting him? As we asked, can anyone under the control of Satan be trusted?

We have also read a report that seventh graders in the Byron, California, School District, are being instructed in the tenets of Islam. They learn the history of Islam and the life of Mohammed. They also learn 25 Islamic terms, six Islamic phrases, 20 Islamic proverbs along with the Five Pillars of Faith. This should not surprise us. The public schools are under the control of Satan, and instruction in a Satanic religion fits in very well with the rest of the curriculum. Will the practice spread? We shall see.
