Today I want to talk about what is happening in Germany and the resistance that is starting to rise in Europe against Islam. People are starting to speak out against the Islamic invasion but they are facing opposition from the government.
We need to learn from Europe. Europe is further down the road in the Islamic invasion into the west and we are here in America.
Before I get into this I want to talk about a news item that started big and fizzled out. It was about a mosque that was burned in Houston, TX. I want to talk about why it dropped out of the news cycle.
The reason the media lost interest is that they found out who was behind it. CAIR, a Muslim Brotherhood front group, always tries to portray everything in a way the supports their idea of islamophobia, as they did in this case. The problem is that the person who was arrested for starting the fire was not only a devout Muslim, he was an attendee of that particular mosque.
This is not the first time something like this happened. In February there was a Muslim man found guilty of murdering someone and they tried to portray it as islamophobia. They later we found it was not. In 2014 a Muslim was found guilty of killing his wife after first blaming the murder on islamophobia.
The facts on the burning of the mosque in Houston make us wonder if this wasn’t done purposely to make a claim of persecution of Muslims. After the attack in San Bernardino there was a mosque set on fire. Are the officials looking into to this as possibly being something similar? Is the media ever going to cover the real truth on things like this?
I believe that the story on the Houston mosque died out because it didn’t fit the narrative the media wanted to present. Had the one who set the fire been a white man, or had he been a right-wing Republican, we know that they would have run the story until they couldn’t squeeze any more out of it. Once they found out it was a Muslim the story was buried.
Let’s move to the Middle East. Something happened last Friday that is of great concern. The Saudi government executed 47 terrorists, most of whom were affiliated with Al Qaida, but one of them was the top Shi’ite cleric in Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr. This created an international incident between Iran and Saudi Arabia. Iran had warned the Saudis that if the executed Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr there would be dire consequences.
To understand why this created such an incident we have to understand the relationship between Iran and Saudi Arabia. Iran is the largest Shi’ite country in the world and Saudi Arabia is Sunni and the place where Islam started. The conflict between the Shi’ite and the Sunni Muslims goes back to the death of Muhammad. It has to do with who is the true successor of Muhammad. The Shi’ite Muslims reject the first three caliphs that came after Muhammad. They only recognize the 4th caliph because they believe that the caliph must be a direct descendant or a blood relative of Muhammad. The Sunni Muslims recognize the first three caliphs.
This difference has caused great strife since the beginning of Islam. It continues to this day and it is a major part of why Saudi Arabia and Iran don’t like each other.
They agree on the essentials of Islam but their differences come down to two or three areas. One difference is their views of eschatology (doctrines of the end times). The Shi’ites believe that the Islamic messiah (Mahdi) is going to come out of Iran. In 1979, when Khomeini came into power, they thought he was going to be the Mahdi until he died in 1989. Today they believe the Mahdi is in a well in Iran. The Sunnis believe that the Mahdi will come out of Sunni Islam. There is also a power conflict between Iran and Saudi Arabia. It is about power, oil, and money.
I believe there is also a spiritual divide. People often ask why there is this divide within the house of Islam. I believe it is part of the Lord’s hand to keep Islam divide. Can you imagine what it would be like if the house of Islam was unified at all times?
There are those who say that if Iran gets the nuclear bomb, they will not only use it against Israel and America, they would also go after Saudi Arabia. I believe that the wahhabists in Saudi Arabia would agree with the Iranians because they see the royal family as corrupted.
One blessing that could come from this conflict between the Saudis and the Iranians is that it may mean more peace toward Israel for a time. If they are fighting between themselves they won’t have as much time to focus on Israel.
There is another incident that happened in Colorado. Almost 200 Muslims walked off their job at a meat packing plant over prayer. The plant was allowing them to have their prayer time, but they could only have three leave the processing line at a time. They couldn’t allow more people to take their break at one time because it would shut town the line. Eleven Muslims said they wanted to take their break at the same time.
When the Muslims walked off the job they were fired. They broke company policy. The company was providing for their religious expressions but they wanted more. I say kudos to the company for not backing down.
In Europe, 200 Subway restaurants have submitted to Shariah Law and have removed all of their ham and bacon sandwiches from their menu. All of their meat is now halal compliant. This will come to America if we don’t wake up. We can already see it happening in places like Dearborn, MI.

One of the things that concerns us about the flood of Muslims through the resettlement program is that they are not going to assimilate into our culture. As they grow in number they well demand more and more accommodation to their Shariah Law.
There are Somali Muslims in Michigan who are on welfare demanding that the food banks have a halal section. Remember, they are living off our dime, and they think they have the right to make demands like this. We saw something similar in Europe when the Muslims were refusing to accept the food being offered them because it came from Christians and was not Islamically certified.
I believe we live in an age of stupidity and willful ignorance. Political Correctness is not only going to bring the death of America, it will bring the death of Western civilization. It has already brought the death of common sense.
Let’s look at the flip side of this. Do you thing that Islamic nations are as accommodating of Western ways and Christian values? You know they would not because they already do not.
We must demand assimilation into our culture by those we allow in or we will lose our nation. This is happening in Europe, and it is the message I have been trying to get out in America.
Back in 2010 some of the European leaders admitted to the problem. Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, said that multiculturalism and utterly failed. David Cameron, the Prime Minister of England, Sarcozy of France followed suit. This is three major European leaders that admitted that allowing other cultures to come into their countries without assimilating is a failure. It does not work, and it destroys your own nation. Something keeps them from really standing up for this even though they know that it doesn’t work.
I don’t know what Merkel is trying to do with this, but it seems like she is trying to destroy German culture for the sake of Muslims. The German people are pushing back against her agenda.
Shahram has a personal friend who has been charged with a crime for standing up and speaking out against this. Her name is Heidi Mund, and she is a Christian activist who is standing up against the influx of Muslim “refugees.”
The people of Germany are saying they believe this will result in a civil war. It will be a war for the survival of the German culture and Western civilization in Germany. They are saying that they have been invaded. We have to ask why these European leaders have sold out. Are they receiving money or something else for their complicity.
Heidi Mund was an atheist when she was in East Germany under communist rule. After the wall fell she became a Christian. Heidi became well known a couple of years ago because of an event at a church. They had an interfaith concert. There was an imam that was invited to pray. He started to do the Muslim call to prayer in Arabic exalting Allah. She felt led of God to stand up an rebuke what was happening and saying that Allah is not the true God. She was kicked out of the event. Some of the newspapers got a hold of her story and dubbed her the “brave German woman.”
Heidi has been standing up against the Islamization of Germany. She was in Shahram’s church last year and asked “Where are the men?” There are a few women in Germany who are standing up, but the men are sadly lacking. The churches are also refusing to stand up. A lot of the German evangelical churches have turned their back on Heidi saying that she is too radical.
Heidi is a street evangelist. She sets up a table and tries to reach people, especially Muslims. She has a tremendous heart for bringing Muslims for Christ.
On German Unity Day, she called for a prayer chain around Germany to represent a spiritual wall, which, by God’s authority, would withstand the powers of darkness. She has caused quite a stir, and now requires a police escort wherever she goes.
Heidi has, because of the prayer chain, been charged by the local DA of agitation against a people. She was accused after making prayer suggestions. Can you imagine being charged of a crime because you called for prayer for a specific subject? That is what we are facing today.
We need to realize that the United Nations Resolution 16/18 is behind this kind of thing. It is a resolution not to denigrate another’s religion, more specifically Islam. We know that it is for the protection of Islam because it is not used when Christianity is denigrated.
European countries are integrating this resolution into their legal system. This is relatively new. I moved out of the United Kingdom back in 2008, and at that time we could do some things we can’t do here. For example we could go into the British schools and teach out of the Bible. We used to speak at assemblies in the British public schools.
Now they are going against Heidi’s prayer. They have charged her with a crime for simply recommending a prayer.
A similar thing happened to a street preacher in Ireland and he was taken to court. Fortunately the verdict came back not guilty.
The sad thing is that those who stand against the evils of Islam are being persecuted. Heidi has a heart for Muslims. Like those of us at Fortress of Faith, she wanted to see Muslims get saved. We don’t condemn the people, the Muslims, but we do resist the system of Islam.

Heidi is being charged with a crime for her prayer. This is something she said. She did not incite any violence against Muslims. She did not call upon anyone to take up arms. She simply asked God to protect Germany from a false religion. If you didn’t hear of these things it would almost be impossible to believe that they could happen.
We know that Germany has welcomed in hundreds of thousands of Muslim refugees. We know that the majority of the refugees are young men. We know that there has been a sharp increase in violent attacks, especially against women. We also know that they are bringing in illness, and other problems. The worst part is the islamization of Germany. These things are indisputable facts.
Heidi has been living this. She was part of a group of citizens called “Pegida Rhein Main,” which is similar to Act for America here. It is a grass roots movement with hundreds of thousands of people throughout Germany who are concerned about what is happening in their nation. They want to preserve their Western values and way of life and stop the islamization of their country.
This group is very patriotic and wants to protect the sovereignty of Germany and somehow the media and the liberal elite think it is crazy to do so. They are now calling Pegida “Nazis.” This is always what the left does when someone opposes their ideas. Germans are very sensitive about this because they are still living down what happened under Hitler.
Heidi and her Husband actually tried to start a chapter of Pegida in their community. Because of this her husband was fired from his job and they lost their income. They are about to lose their home in Germany. There are police patrols around her all the time because of threats against her.
On German Unity Day Heidi called for a human prayer chain around Germany. In an article in a German newspaper she is called a radical Christian and said she called for an act of rebellion and opposition. Can you believe that calling for a prayer chain in Germany is now an act of rebellion and opposition? Here is her suggested prayer:
“We pray for the real refugees, that they should again have hope for life, that our God will comfort them,…. (and) against the massive immigration of 90% young Muslim men, who should not be building their own homeland here and that they should not rape our girls and women; that they should be sent with the word of God – the Bible – back into their own home countries, there where they belong,… (We pray) against sickness and disease which the immigrants have brought with them,…We ask God for angels to stand on Germany’s borders as well as on the borders of Europe.”
Because of this prayer she has been charged with agitation against the people. She is charged with a crime for calling for prayer for Germany and for its protection and against the islamization of her country. We have prayed for these same things here in America. In Shahram’s church they have prayed that God would break the curse of Islam over America. Heidi is facing criminal prosecution for this. I believe it is in our future if we don’t stand up against it before it is too late.
I don’t believe the intent of the German government is to put Heidi in jail, I believe it is to make her life miserable fighting this charge. I think the real purpose for what is going on is to intimidate those who would stand up and speak the truth about Islam. It is part of lawfare in which Muslims use our own laws against us. I think it is coming to America because it is part of Islam’s game plan to take over the world.
It is sad that those who are trying to defend the German culture and protect it from foreigners who are not coming to assimilate, but to force their culture upon the German people, are being persecuted by the very government they are trying to save. It is like what is happening here in America. If you are a constitutionalist, if you are a patriot, if you stand for freedom you are being called a terrorist by the liberals.
We need to understand that the strategy of the left is to call names and intimidate the opposition to shut them up. They don’t argue facts they just call names and try to intimidate.
We need to ask ourselves if we are ready to be called all kinds of dirty and offensive names for standing for truth. We can expect this from the left wing media and politicians, but are we ready for it coming from others who profess to be Christians?
This is already happening. Those of us who are not excited about the influx of Muslim refugees are being portrayed as unloving, etc. Remember that the Attorney General, after the San Bernardino attack, was more concerned with someone saying something offensive about Islam and Muslims than she was about the fact that Muslims are attacking and killing Americans. She said they would prosecute anti-Muslim rhetoric that edges toward violence. Who defines that? Could not what we say at Fortress of Faith be considered anti-Muslim rhetoric? We speak out against the ideology of Islam. Although, when pressed, she backed off her statement, we know what is in her heart by what she said.
We know that the UN Resolution 16/18 I mentioned earlier is already in the State Department policy. One Homeland Security employee was silenced by the Civil Rights Division for monitoring the social media accounts of Muslims in America because it would be seen as offending Muslims. They are more concerned about offending Muslims that they are about Muslims killing Americans.

Let me say a few words about the UN Resolution 16/18. The efforts of governments in Europe to protect Islam is based upon this resolution. What concerns me is the effect that it is have in our government. The statement by the Attorney General shows what I am talking about.
This resolution was birthed by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) out of Turkey. We have seen the effects of this in Europe where they have actually put it into their criminal code through their hate speech and anti-discrimination laws. It doesn’t surprise me that they are only using it to prosecute Christians and anyone who will defame or offend Islam. It is never used when Christians are insulted or offended. Resolution 16/18 was pushed by Muslims to keep people from pointing out any of the bad things about Islam. It was never intended to protect anyone else.
I want to bring forth a resolution in our House of Representatives so you will understand that they are pushing to get this passed into law. If the principles of this resolution become law the First Amendment, which is already tattered, will be completely gone. House Resolution 569 is before the House of Representatives. Here is what it says.
Condemning violence, bigotry, and hateful rhetoric towards Muslims in the United States.
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
December 17, 2015
Mr. Beyer (for himself, Mr. Honda, Mr. Ellison, Mr. Crowley, Mr. Carson of Indiana, Ms. Norton, Ms. McCollum, Ms. Kaptur, Mrs. Carolyn B. Maloney of New York, Mr. Kildee, Ms. Loretta Sanchez of California, Mr. Rangel, Mr. Peters, Mr. Ashford, Mr. Grayson, Mr. Takai, Mr. Higgins, Mr. Keating, Mr. Grijalva, Ms. Wasserman Schultz, Mr. Butterfield, Mr. Connolly, Mr. Gallego, Mrs. Bustos, Mr. Delaney, Ms. Castor of Florida, Mr. Gutiérrez, Mr. Quigley, Ms. Esty, Mr. Kennedy, Ms. Kelly of Illinois, Ms. Eddie Bernice Johnson of Texas, Mr. Meeks, Ms. Meng, Mr. Al Green of Texas, Ms. Clark of Massachusetts, Mr. Schiff, Mr. Hastings, Mr. Farr, Mr. Pallone, Mr. McDermott, Ms. Lee, Ms. Edwards, Mr. Brady of Pennsylvania, Ms. Wilson of Florida, Mr. Michael F. Doyle of Pennsylvania, Mr. Sires, Ms. DelBene, Ms. Judy Chu of California, Mr. Polis, Mr. Loebsack, Mr. Pascrell, Mrs. Dingell, Ms. Schakowsky, Mr. Cohen, Mr. Hinojosa, Mr. Yarmuth, Ms. Tsongas, Mr. Langevin, Mr. Pocan, Mr. Conyers, Mr. Takano, Mr. Ryan of Ohio, Mr. Serrano, Mr. Johnson of Georgia, Mr. Tonko, Ms. Lofgren, Mr. Van Hollen, Mrs. Capps, Mr. Price of North Carolina, Ms. Matsui, Ms. Moore, and Mr. Heck of Washington) submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary
Condemning violence, bigotry, and hateful rhetoric towards Muslims in the United States.
Whereas the victims of anti-Muslim hate crimes and rhetoric have faced physical, verbal, and emotional abuse because they were Muslim or believed to be Muslim;
Whereas the constitutional right to freedom of religious practice is a cherished United States value and violence or hate speech towards any United States community based on faith is in contravention of the Nation’s founding principles;
Whereas there are millions of Muslims in the United States, a community made up of many diverse beliefs and cultures, and both immigrants and native-born citizens;
Whereas this Muslim community is recognized as having made innumerable contributions to the cultural and economic fabric and well-being of United States society;
Whereas hateful and intolerant acts against Muslims are contrary to the United States values of acceptance, welcoming, and fellowship with those of all faiths, beliefs, and cultures;
Whereas these acts affect not only the individual victims but also their families, communities, and the entire group whose faith or beliefs were the motivation for the act;
Whereas Muslim women who wear hijabs, headscarves, or other religious articles of clothing have been disproportionately targeted because of their religious clothing, articles, or observances; and
Whereas the rise of hateful and anti-Muslim speech, violence, and cultural ignorance plays into the false narrative spread by terrorist groups of Western hatred of Islam, and can encourage certain individuals to react in extreme and violent ways: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That the House of Representatives—
(1) expresses its condolences for the victims of anti-Muslim hate crimes;
(2) steadfastly confirms its dedication to the rights and dignity of all its citizens of all faiths, beliefs, and cultures;
(3) denounces in the strongest terms the increase of hate speech, intimidation, violence, vandalism, arson, and other hate crimes targeted against mosques, Muslims, or those perceived to be Muslim;
(4) recognizes that the United States Muslim community has made countless positive contributions to United States society;
(5) declares that the civil rights and civil liberties of all United States citizens, including Muslims in the United States, should be protected and preserved;
(6) urges local and Federal law enforcement authorities to work to prevent hate crimes; and to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law those perpetrators of hate crimes; and
(7) reaffirms the inalienable right of every citizen to live without fear and intimidation, and to practice their freedom of faith.
I understand the issue of violence. There are laws to protect everyone, including Muslims, from violence. How do you prosecute someone for bigotry and hateful rhetoric in a free society? There is a lot of bigotry and hateful rhetoric against Christians and Jews in this country, and because of our free speech laws, those who commit these things are not prosecuted. What makes Muslims so special?
Rhetoric is “the art or study of using language effectively and persuasively.” How do you prosecute this? Who gets to decide when it is hateful? Does this mean we can’t disagree with anyone? Does it mean that we don’t have the right to our own opinions?
It doesn’t surprise me that this resolution was proposed by Democrats. There are more than 80 Democrats in the House that have signed on to it. It is currently in the Judiciary Committee and I don’t think it will get out of committee. If it does I hope that the Republicans in the House won’t betray us as they have done so many times in the past.
The reason I wanted to bring this up is that they want to get the UN Resolution incorporated into US law. House Resolution 569 specifically only protects Muslims. It is to protect Muslims from physical, verbal, or emotional abuse. CAIR and other Islamic groups accuse Christians of all kinds of things. We won’t be protected from Muslims imposing verbal and emotional abuse upon us, but Muslims will be protected from us saying anything that offends them.
If a Muslim says Allahu Akbar it is offensive to me because it mean “Allah is the greatest.” In spite of the fact that it offends me, I believe he has the right to say it because we have freedom of speech. On the other hand, if I say Jesus is Lord, and it offends a Muslim I could be prosecuted. What is wrong with the Democratic Party when it supports this kind of injustice?
We need to pray that this resolution doesn’t go anywhere, but you don’t think they will stop here, do you?
The House resolution is a result of UN Resolution 16/18, which was originally called the Istanbul Process. Who was at the head of this? It was Hillary Clinton. When she was the Secretary of State she co-chaired the committee with the president of the OIC. She worked to tweak the resolution so the US could vote for it.
The House resolution says that it should be a criminal offense if someone says something negative against Islam and only Islam. This is a violation of the First Amendment. It seems that the left side of the isle in Congress doesn’t believe in the First Amendment, and the President doesn’t believe in the Second Amendment. We see this in his continued attack on gun rights. I must add that most on the left agree with the President on the gun issue.
The liberals have given up our land to the ideology of Islam and they are using it to destroy our Constitution. The Constitution was built upon Christian principles and that is why the left is so strongly supportive of Islam. If there was ever a time when we need to have the courage to stand for truth, it is now.
The purpose of Fortress of faith is not only to give you the truth, it is to encourage you to stand for the truth. That is why we have initiated our new slogan “Join us at the corner of Truth and Courage.” The day may come where doing so will result in your being charged with a crime.
When I look at what has happened in the last 5 years I can’t believe it. Ten years ago if you said these things would be going on, that his would be the new normal, you would have been called crazy. You would have been told it could not happen in America. Well, it has happened.
Some think we are some kind of nuts because we say we could lose our constitutional rights. They say it could never happen, but it is happening right now. I used to think we could not lose our constitutional rights, but I now know that we can, and we will, if we don’t stand for them.
I don’t know who said it, but this is so true:
He who will not fight for his freedom does not deserve it.
If there was ever at time we needed to stand for truth, it is now. We need to speak the truth in love and, in as much as it is possible, to do so in a peaceful manner. We need to start now. We need to stand against all encroachments on our freedoms. If we don’t we will lose them.
We must know the truth and have the courage to stand for it.
We must be like Daniel of old. He purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself. He made a predetermined decision to stand for what was right, and he did it. We need to do the same.]]>
