|The land where Satan

Saudi Arabia is the birthplace and the motherland of ISLAM. And when they
pray, Muslims the world over turn their faces, not to Iran or Libya or any
other country, but to Mecca in Saudi Arabia, where the black Kaabah stone
symbolizes the central point of their religious attention. To that stone,
also, they make their pilgrimages.
|received his nightly visitation when he was with Kadijah his wife. This is how Macbride in Mohammedan Religion Explained relates this strange episode:|
After this appearance
there is said to have been an intermission
of two years, during which [Mohammed] suffered hallucination of his senses,
and several times contemplated self-destruction. His friends were alarmed,
and called in exorcists, and he himself doubted the soundness of his mind,
Once he said to his wife, I hear a sound and I see a light: I am afraid
there are gins (spirits) in me; and again, I am afraid I am
a Kahin, that is, a soothsayer possessed by Satan. God,
replied Khadijah, will never permit this, for thou keepest thy engagements,
and assistest thy relatives; and according to some, she added, Thou
wilt be the prophet of thy Nation. These sounds as from a clock or
a bell, are enumerated as symptoms of epilepsy. In this morbid state of feeling
he is said to have heard a voice, and on raising his head, beheld Gabriel,
who assured him he was the prophet of God. Frightened, he returned home,
and called for covering. He had a fit, and they poured cold water on him;
and when he came to himself he heard those words, Oh, thou covered
one, arise and preach, and magnify thy Lord; and henceforth, we are
told, he received revelations without intermission. Before this supposed
revelation he had been medically treated on account of the evil eye; and
when the Koran first descended to him he fell into fainting fits, when, after
violent shudderings, his eyes closed and his mouth foamed. Khadijah offered
to bring him to one who would dispossess him of the evil spirit, but he forbade
From the beginning, ISLAM was spread via wars and violence. People
and nations were conquered and then coerced into submission (which is what
ISLAM means) to the teachings of Allah. Embracing ISLAM certainly was not
a free choice arrived at by a person after serious enquiry or instruction.
No, ISLAM came by the sword and subjugated multitudes by force to its teachings.
During Mohammeds life, more than 50 wars were fought in the name of
ISLAM. From the very start, then, ISLAM was a violent religion that even
sanctified these wars as holy by coining the detestable name, jihad;
the name that until today ISLAMIC terrorist groups use for themselves and
their acts of terror.
ISLAM is therefore certainly not a peaceful religion but a very violent one that believes that the whole world should be conquered and brought into submission to ISLAM, by means of war and jihad if there is no other way.
Essentially, and this is a cardinal point, there can therefore be little opposition within ISLAM to the use of force and war, given that the Prophet himself made ample use of such violence. And to be at loggerheads with the Prophet or with the violence-inspiring verses of the Quran would be unthinkable for a true and faithful Muslim.
So it is small wonder that, apart from Osama bin Laden, who is himself from Saudi Arabia, 15 out of the 19 September 11 2001 terrorists were Saudis!
Satan has done his work well in that desert country: first convincing the Muslims through Mohammed that God has no son; then using Saudi Arabia as the launching pad for the satanically-inspired religion that destroyed many Christian communities throughout the Middle East and beyond; at the same time keeping any person or preacher out of its own territory, which has thus remained under Satans overall influence. All this has made Saudi Arabia not only the great denier of the central point of the Gospel that God has a Son in love with this world, also with the Muslims but also one of the most rigorously closed countries of the world for any other faith.
Not one church, not one synagogue is allowed in this land of ISLAM. Had Allah been the same god as the God of the Bible, as so many say he is, he would most certainly have not been against people, Jews or Christians, worshipping Him in their own way. As someone insightfully remarked: If you want to see the real face of ISLAM, dont look to where ISLAM is still a guest or minority religion, as it is in certain western countries. There Muslims are, generally speaking, polite. Wait until they have gained the power there. If you want to see the intolerant, true face of ISLAM, look to where they are the masters, as in Saudi Arabia, Libya, Iran or Iraq. What you see in those lands is ISLAMs true face and character.
Saudi Arabia is the land of Satan, the land where Lucifer lives supreme, where women are often the sex slaves of men, where slavery is still permitted, where Idi Amin, the murderer and mass killer of his Ugandan people, as is reported, found a welcome refuge, back to which even Osama bin Laden may have fled.
Saudi Arabia is:
|among the worlds countries most closed to the Gospel.|
|a country that finances not only many mosques around the world, but many ISLAMIC terrorist movements as well.|
a country that, with all its wealth and power, could have long ago helped the U.S. to solve the Palestinian problem, resettling the Palestinian Arabs with all their intellect and talents all over the Arab world, thereby saving billions of dollars in futile Middle East wars.
Instead, Saudi Arabia has become, in the name of ISLAM, an upholder of the
satanically inspired fight and hatred against Gods own people. This
Allah-inspired religion does not like this God who has chosen a people, called
them His own people, and promised to give them a land, His land.
This god, Allah, who has no son, spews forth from Muslim minarets Itbach al Jahud (slaughter the Jews!). For the followers of Allah, even if God has promised to bring His people here, the Jews have no right to a country that ISLAM has sealed as belonging to her. Therefore these Jews must be destroyed by hook or by crook.
And so, from this land of Satan, emissaries are sent all over the world to convince, corrupt and often pliable western politicians to come against Gods people, the Jews.
So their crown Prince Abdullah is dispatched to speak to the president of one of the only countries still supportive of Israel, to meet with him and give him a lesson on the Middle East, so that also this Bush administration will keep defending this land of Satan out of fear, and not out of true belief in the rightness of their cause.
How could the Bush administration really believe in the Saudis when they must know, as Barry Rubin writes in The Jerusalem Post (12/10/2002):
|The continuing financial aid by Saudis to al-Qaida and other terrorist groups, notably Hamas and Islamic Jihad, with the Saudi government reluctant to clamp down on such donations.|
|The absence of Saudi contrition over the fact that 15 of the 19 September 11 hijackers were Saudis.|
|The revelation that Princess Haifa al-Faisal, wife of Saudi Ambassador to the US Prince Bandar bin Sultan, had given money to a man who helped finance two of the September 11 hijackers in the days before the attack.|
As Patrick E. Tyler, writing in the New York Times, quotes (04/26/2002):
And as Joseph Farah writes in World Net Daily 12/06/2002:
How can we continue to keep our heads in the sand?
