First I need to say “Thank you, Heavenly Father for protecting us!”
Second, I am half way through the book on “The Rise of ISIS” by Jay Sekulow and my reactions thus far have been vacillating between hyperventilating at the horrors I read and outright blind rage at Washington for DOING NOTHING!
So I will give you the run down of what I read so far because I am sure there is information in the book that most do not know. Since I am referencing Mr.Sekulow’s book, “The Rise of ISIS”, I will just put the page numbers in parenthesis instead of a whole formal reference. But it would be best if you bought it for yourself so you can read everything. It’s cheap and only 97 pages of reading and the rest is notes.
Let’s begin. If you have ever seen a horror movie where someone inadvertently opens the gates of hell and every demon comes flying out to torture and destroy mankind, then you have a basic understanding of ISIS. You have all heard of the beheadings but you are not aware of the savagery in them. They don’t use some super sharp sword where the head comes clean off in one slice. They use a knife and hack away at the neck! (pps 3,4) What kind of human does that to another and an innocent person at that? Demonic psychopaths, that’s who. Age and gender mean nothing. They have tortured children as young as 8 and there are reports that they have beheaded children as well (p. 8). They put bombs on handicapped children knowing that American soldiers would show compassion for the handicapped child (p. 16).
ISIS is the richest and most well equipped terror organization in history (p. 8). It is reported that they have 40kg of radioactive uranium ( p.9) They have captured American M1 Abrams tanks, in addition to howitzers, 1500 Humvees, and 4,000 PKC machine guns that were left behind by the fleeing Iraqi army (p. 41). Their cash and assets are reported to be around 2 billion.
They are a demonic torture and killing machine. They torture and kill Muslim and non Muslims. They are so crazed they even announced, “If Allah wills, we will kill those who worship the stones in Mecca and destroy the Kaaba.” (p. 38) For those who don’t know, Mecca is the holiest city to Islam and the Kaaba is a square structure in their most holiest mosque that they walk around,seven times, after purifying themselves and donning white robes. They must make this trip to Mecca at least once in their lives. It is considered sacred by Muslims. But not to ISIS who has plans on destroying it. That would be like a fanatically insane, devout Catholic announcing he wants to blow up the Vatican. They will eventually make their way to Israel as it is the goal of all terrorists, Hamas especially, to destroy the country and kill everyone living there; Jew, Christian and anyone else they feel like killing.
Now here is the part that I didn’t know about either. There are jihadist sympathizers in the U.N., Europe and other parts of the world (p. 10) The U.N. (and the international left) is guilty of the following: they have watched Hamas use innocent civilians as shields and then blame Israel when someone is killed; they knew that Hamas was hiding rockets in U.N facilities; they allowed Hamas to use their “facilities as bases for terror tunnels and then boobie trap U.N. facilities to kill Israeli soldiers”; the U.N. then appoints individuals to produce biased reports that Israel is committing war crimes so as to deprive Israel the right to defend itself (p.11)
What they are trying to do is to establish a new “law of war”, which would “tie America’s hands as it fights terror at home and abroad.” “These new rules and regulations would be used to brand our own soldiers as war criminals.” (p. 11). ISIS and Hamas would then be allowed to fight as “savagely as they please” without “prosecution for war crimes”.(p.12) Do you see the rise of something so horrific that it defies imagination? This really stunned me. Matt. 24: 21 Jesus says: “For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.” Unrestrained rampage would be just about the time the Antichrist shows up.
What ISIS is trying to do is to establish its own one world government called the Caliphate. I am going to continue this when I have finished reading the book but I would urge everyone to go out and buy it and read for themselves.
