Charlie Hedbo terrorist attack – France is one of Islam’s greatest appeasers. France controlled several Islamic countries in the days of their African empire. Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Sudan, Guinea, Niger, Mauritania, Gambia Ivory Coast and Libya were all under French control. For all its official rhetoric, France has done precious little to stem the growing tide of Jew-hatred and anti-Israelism that has gripped that country.
Mass emigration of French Jewry, prompted primarily by French Islamists, is met with muted response and inaction by French officials who appear either indifferent to their plight or at a loss to devise a coherent strategy to effectively deal with the phenomena.
Since the mid-1960s, the French, motivated partly out of greed, partly out of a need to needle the United States and partly out of genuine dislike for the Mideast’s only democracy, have done everything in their power to appease tyranny rather than fight it, to prop it up rather than obliterate it.
In May 1967 France was the first Western power to unilaterally impose an arms embargo on Israel at a precarious time when Israel was facing existential threats from its Arab neighbours. From Iraq to Algeria, frenzied Arab mobs stoked by their respective venal governments burned effigies of Jews in the streets to chants of Itbach al-Yahud, “slaughter the Jews!”
The world watched with feigned concern as hundreds of thousands of Arabs soldiers backed by modern Soviet T-55 tanks and Mig fighter jets converged on Israel’s borders. The French, chose to abandon and betray the Jewish State in a transparent effort to curry favour with the Muslim world. The French sold their morality for oil and a few Francs.
It has been rumoured that Nicolas Sarcozy was funded by Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi in his presidential campaign.
France is a humanistic secular state. God has no legal place in France, and this is clearly demonstrated by Charlie Hebdo Magazine. The magazine was run by Atheist Activists and made a mockery of anyone’s religion which to their cost included Islam.
Not all French agree with the magazine’s methods and philosophy, but almost all of them are now rallying to the side of these spiritually perverse men who hate God with a venomous passion. The editor of the magazine Stéphane “Charb” Charbonnier’s declared…
‘‘I am not afraid of reprisals. I don’t have kids, I don’t have a wife, I don’t have a car, I don’t have credit. This may sound a bit pompous but I would prefer to die standing than to live on my knees.’’ Prophetic words? It turns out that “Charb” was standing up when he was shot and killed.
More importantly is what “Charb” meant by his comment.
What he meant was that he would never bow his knee to any god especially the God of the Bible. Unfortunately for him his humanistic atheistic pride WILL indeed one day bow before the King of kings and the Lord of lords.
It is terrible to fall into the hands of the Almighty God.
What is even more poetic is that the godless gang at “Charlie” all came to a knowledge of the truth at the same time. All of them believe now.
What do I mean by that? I mean that they believe the same as the rich man of Lazarus fame does. It is destined for a man once to die; thereafter the judgement. These men, the terrorists included were not fans of the Living God of the Bible, but NOW they believe.
Too late to do anything about it except wait for the day of judgement of the wicked dead.
The media is touting the event as an attack on freedom. Mmm. In the secular humanistic atheist mind “freedom” is a relative term. One man’s meat is another man’s poison.
There is only one place where we as humans can know true freedom, and that is in Christ.
The secular version of freedom is a Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) experience.
It makes one feel good for a while and it even dulls the pain, but in the end nothing has changed. We remain shackled to our weaknesses and our fears.
In Christianity we are taught and instructed to love our enemies; to pray for those who use us; to do good to those who are ugly to us.
In Islam there is no such sentiment and this was “Charlie’s” mistake. In mocking Christianity the magazine picked on a soft lumbering target. A target with a mindset of forgiveness, tolerance and restitution.
In the Quran however there is not a single verse of instruction to love anything. There are many verses that instruct the Muslim to make war and kill the “Infidel.”
The Western myth of the “Religion of Peace” is appeasement at best and in many cases it is treason.
Is it right to condone this mass murder? I think it depends who you are asking.
What these murderers did they did in obedience to the Quran. (This is an undisputable fact and I challenge you to check for yourself.)
Cf. Surah 2: 190 – 193
Surah 9: 5
Surah 9: 28, 29
Surah 9: 123
The above references are accompanied by many others in the Quran. Do not believe the mealy mouth politicians who tell you otherwise, they have an agenda that does not include your safety or wellbeing.
Often the Crusaders are thrown into the argument to justify terror and murder.
The problem with this line of argument is that the Crusaders were killing in disobedience to the Bible whereas the Muslims were doing the same in obedience to the Quran.
France’s duplicitous foreign policies when it came to appeasing two-bit Arab dictators only went from bad to worse. They helped Saddam Hussein construct an atom bomb plant and supplied the tyrant with massive quantities of Mirage fighter jets, missiles, tanks and artillery. For those who need reminding, this is the same chap who paid lavish sums to the families of Palestinian homicide bombers, who threatened to “burn half of Israel” and employed chemical weapons against his own people.
Rather than fighting and combating Islamic terrorists, the French have a nasty habit of paying them off. They released frozen Iranian assets in exchange for cessation of Iranian-backed terror attacks against France and paid Palestinian groups protection money in an effort to spare their commercial airliners from the scourge of Palestinian skyjackings.
France’s abominable foreign policy reared its ugly head yet again when on December 30, it backed a Palestinian resolution at the UN Security Council that imposed dictates on Israel, compelling the Jewish State to withdraw to pre-1967 borders – borders which Israel’s former UN ambassador, Abba Ebban, perceptively termed “Auschwitz lines“– without addressing Israel’s security needs and territorial claims. The one-sided resolution also gave implicit recognition to the notion that millions of “Palestinian refugees” would be allowed to flood Israel, effectively ending the Jewish character of the state.
The Charlie Hebdo attack is a display of hatred.
Hatred for anyone who does not agree with Islam. On the other hand the victims hated just as much. In their zeal to mock God, they attacked the Catholic Church, Islam and anyone who believed in a god. Their hatred was matched with hatred, and the result is that the enemies of the God of the Bible are fighting and killing each other in a war of hatred and ignorance.
Ignorance because “Charlie” thought that the Catholic Church represents the God of the Bible, and that Allah is the same God as the God of the Bible.
Personally, I believe that the 12 killed in the “Charlie” attack are now believers in the redemptive plan of God through the blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross at Calvary.
All in all the world is in a humanistic mess and it is going to get much worse before it gets better.
