American media calls them “gunman” and not a single word from the Obama White House regarding the Muslim terrorist attack in Garland Texas, which is Obama’s profile. He does not address the genocide on Christians by ISIS, or other Islam terrorist attacks anywhere.
Segment One | Garland Texas vs. Charlie Hebdo in France
This past week we had an event in Texas that was designed to make a statement about freedom of speech. Freedom of speech is part of our Constitution and Bill of Rights and is essential to a free country with a government of the people, by the people, and for the people.
There is an attempt to take away our right to free speech. There is an effort in the United Nations through Resolution 1618 which we have covered before. Another factor is what happened at this event.
We remember what happened when a Danish newspaper invited people to demonstrate the freedom of speech by submitting drawings of Muhammad. We will talk a bit more about this later because it fits with what happened in Garland TX.
|The following is from Fortress of Faiths radio program with Tom Wallace and Shahram Hadian on Islam, the Anti-Chirst Religion and recommend listening to the broadcast here, or read the SHOW NOTES below.|
Pamela Geller is the founder of the American Freedom Of Defense Initiative along with her partner Robert Spencer whose website is Jihad Watch. Both of them are well know for their defense of our way of life against Islam.
There was a special guest at the event in Garland Texas, Geert Wilders, a Dutch lawmaker and outspoken critic of radical Islam. He was charged with a crime simply because he quoted scripture from the Qur’an.
Before we get started discussing the event in Texas I want to remind you of what happened in France. The satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo was attacked and journalists were killed for publishing articles and pictures on Muhammad.
There was a major difference between what happened in France and what happened in Texas. In France the police who first showed up did not have guns. They were forced to flee in the face of the terrorists with their automatic weapons. Some reports say the terrorists even had a rocket launcher. Two police officers did try to stand against the terrorists and they were killed.
In Garland Texas there was heavy security, primarily because of Geert Wilders who is on the Al-Qaeda’s hit list. The difference is that the terrorists were met by police officers that had guns. The police officer that killed the terrorists is a hero. He took down gunmen who were better armed and had body armor with his service pistol.
An interesting thing about this attack was the the perpetrators had posted on twitter that they were going to do this. One of them, Elton Simpson, was known to the FBI and like many other black men who go to prison, he had converted to Islam. There is a twitter account called Sharia of Light and there was a tweet, we believe it was from Simpson, which said:
“The bro with me and myself we have given bay’ah to Amirul Mu’mineen. May Allah accept us as mujahideen. Make dua.”
The hash tag for this was #texasattack. Mujahideen is where the word jihad comes from and it signifies warfare for the sake of Allah. Amirul Mu’mineen refers to the great prince. They were either making an appeal to Allah, or, as some experts think, to the Caliph of ISIS. It is obvious that these men saw themselves as soldiers for Allah and that they were going to the event to kill those who defamed Muhammad.
We believe this was the first ISIS attack on American soil. At the time of the recording of this broadcast there was still no word from the White House. This is an important point because this was a terrorist attack. Fortunately it didn’t go well for the terrorists.
What happened in Garland Texas deals with the first two amendments to our constitution. Both the freedom of speech and the right to bear arms are at play in this.
The right to freedom of speech is not there so that people can speak in a way that is acceptable to everyone. It is there to protect those who speak out on controversial issues that you or I might not agree with. This right is essential for a free society.
Islam says you cannot speak out against the Prophet Muhammad, you can’t speak out against Islam, and if you do you will die. This event was designed to speak out against this.
Had this happened in Europe or Canada no one would have been armed to take these two men down. Although it was a policeman who shot the terrorists, the police cannot be everywhere. The Second Amendment says the the right of citizens to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. The word “infringe” means to violate in any way.
Why haven’t we heard anything from the White House on this? The President calls for an investigation as soon as something happens against a Muslim, but when Muslims do something against Americans we hear nothing.
The fact that no one on our side was killed in this incident makes it no less important. If the fact that Obama has, as of the time of this recording, said nothing doesn’t speak to his loyalties I don’t know what would.

Segment Two | Media Call them “Gunman”, Not Terrorists or Muslim
It is shocking that most of the media is unwilling to call these men terrorists. They repeatedly call them gunmen.
What makes this even worse is that the media and a lot of politicians on both sides of the political spectrum are making this about Pamela Geller instead of about those who tried to kill to stop free speech. As I said, the freedom of speech is there to guarantee people’s right not to be politically correct.
Even Bill O’Reilly seemed to to go down that road. He basically said that they were asking for what happened and therefore implied that they got what they deserved. Chris Matthews even went so far as to say that Geller set a trap for Muslims. Here is an important question; Why is drawing a cartoon of Muhammad hate and killing those who do so not hate?
Every time Shahram or I stand up to speak publicly we know that we are putting ourselves at risk. Shahram, as and ex-Muslim, can, according to Sharia Law, be killed for being an apostate. Any Muslim would be justified for doing so. Because I say that Muhammad is a false prophet every Muslim is justified by Sharia Law to take my life.
The fact that a Muslim might try to kill one of us does not make us guilty of inciting them to do so. We have freedoms too. There is nothing in the Bill of Rights that gives anyone, including Muslims, the right not to be offended.
Chris Matthews and the others in the media who follow his example, are “useful idiots.” They are being used by Islam to do Islam’s bidding without knowing how foolish they are in doing so. They don’t understand that if Islam wins, they will be the first to be eliminated. Do they know what happens to journalists who do not toe the line in countries like Saudi Arabia and Iran where Sharia is law?
When Geller put on this event they knew that they were putting themselves at risk, that is why they had armed security. They have the First Amendment right to do what they did as long as they don’t directly call for violence.
Something that has not been mentioned in the main-stream press is that this was not just about drawing cartoons of Muhammad. It was an exposition of art showing the drawings of Muhammad through the centuries. It is only now that people are being killed for doing this. No one killed the artists who drew Muhammad in the previous 14 centuries. Why is it happening now?
What people like Chris Matthews are doing is similar to blaming a woman who wears a short skirt for being raped instead of blaming the rapist. The fact that someone does something we don’t agree with doesn’t give us the right to perpetrate violence against them.
The fact that there are people out there ready to kill those who they disagree with makes the Second Amendment even more important. The Bible teaches the right of self-defense, and that this results in peace.
When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace: Luke 11:21
No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house. Mark 3:27
The Second Amendment allows the citizens to bear arms just for this purpose. It is not just to protect us against criminals who would do us harm, it is also to protect us against a government that would do us harm.
Are There Limitations On Christians Concerning Free Speech:
We must admit what they were doing in Garland was offensive to Muslims. It is also true that every time Shahram and I speak it is offensive to Muslims. There are things that are offensive, but we should not go about them in an offensive way.
Shahram’s ministry is called the “TIL Project.” “TIL” stands for “Truth In Love.” This was one of the things that drew me to Shahram in the early days of our friendship. We share a common approach to this problem. This approach was adopted because, as preachers of the Gospel, we have Christian values. We are told not to deliberately do things in an offensive way.
Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed: 2 Corinthians 6:3
This does not say that we can’t address offensive issues. The Gospel, itself, is offensive to the lost. False teaching and false teachers must be exposed. This includes that false prophet and false teaching of Islam. We are warned about false gospels.
But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. Galatians 1:8
We must defend against such things. We don’t have to do it in an offensive way. We are to go about it with love.
But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: Ephesians 4:15
I would never sponsor an event which asked people to draw the Prophet Muhammad. The reason I would not do so is that Muslims are people who need Christ. I love them enough to tell them the truth to try to bring them to Christ. This is a common theme in my ministry. Their souls are too important to do things in an offensive way.
I didn’t get to tell the stork at which address he was to deliver me. If I had been born in a Muslim home I would be caught up in the same false religion as Muslims. I would want someone to care enough to tell me the truth even at the risk of offending me.
As a Christian, and as a preacher of the Gospel, I have to do things in such a manner that the ministry be not blamed. I must not do it in a manner that deliberately offends.
To expose Islam we must say things that will be offensive to Muslims. We recently did a broadcast exposing Islam as an antichrist spirit. We did so in the least offensive manner possible.
We are not saying that the organizers of this event did not have the right to do what they did whether we agree with them or not. It is their right under the First Amendment. Nor are we blaming them for what happened. The terrorists are to blame for the violence, not the event organizers.
The reason this event center was chosen for the event was that Muslims had an event on islamophobia at this same event center. Both groups had the right to have their events. The fact that the media is blaming Pamela Geller for the violence in unconscionable.

Segment Three | The ISIS Link
ISIS is claiming responsibility for this attack. ISIS has been promising attacks in America for some time. There have been messages on the Internet threating the families of military personnel. We have known for the last couple of months that ISIS has training camps in Mexico working with the Mexican drug cartels. These facts come from our government.
The two Muslim terrorist in this event are linked to another man, Abu Hussain Al Britani, who has been linked to ISIS. Al Britani tweeted:
“They showed their love for the Prophet Muhammad by sacrificing their lives for his honor.”
“The brothers in Texas may have had no experience in shooting, but they were quick to defend the honor of the Prophet Muhammad.”
There is another link to ISIS through a man who has been recruiting for Al Shabaab and ISIS. He was encouraging Muslims to “slaughter people within the US.”
These fact are what makes the media coverage and the silence from the White House so outrageous. Evidence seems to point to the fact that this is the first ISIS attack on American soil. Would the media coverage have been different if the attack had been successful? I really don’t know.
It is clear from the background of the terrorists and from their ties to Islam that they were jihadists. They were defending the honor of Muhammad and we have very strong evidence that they were tied to ISIS. ISIS even took credit for the attack on their TV show.
The fact that this attack was not successful means that ISIS will learn and adapt before their next attack. We need to raise our level of awareness and of security.
Fox News reports that ISIS has communicated the fact that they have 71 “trained soldiers” in the United States. Twenty three of them have signed up for missions like the one in Garland. They claim to be in 15 states. They named 5 of the states; Virginia, Maryland, Illinois, California, and Michigan.
This makes the presumed first attack by ISIS in America a major event. Why is the White House silent on this?
Even if this wasn’t ISIS, it is something we need to pay attention to. If it was ISIS, it was a failed attack. The attackers didn’t get 10 steps from their car. ISIS will learn from this and adapt their strategy before the next one. This attack was an embarrassment to them and the will try in the very near future to redeem themselves.
Those who would dismiss this attack because it failed are making a big mistake. This was an attack by a homegrown terrorist. There are many reports of ISIS recruiting here in America. This is serious business.
Why is YouTube allowing videos teaching how to make bombs? Why is Twitter allowing the recruitment messages to go out? Why does Facebook allow their recruitment pages?
Go Fund Me is an on-line fund-raising site that has taken down the site of the Christian baker in Oregon and the florist in Washington State. Why can’t the social media sites stop the on-line recruitment by Muslims?
Our constitution and the Bible give us the right to take up arms to defend ourselves. Our government is trying to disarm our law-abiding citizens, yet it is doing nothing to disarm the Islamic terrorists.
Shahram and I receive threats because of what we do. Please keep us and our families in your prayers. We will continue to preach the truth in love no matter the cost.
Praise God that we have the true Gospel that Jesus died for us and we don’t have to go out and die for our God. However, if God sees fit to allow us to die in His cause, we will not flinch. We don’t have to die for our salvation like the Muslims do for theirs, but we will die if necessary for our God.

Segment Four | The Rest Of The Story On The Danish Cartoons
We did a series on this issue in 2013 and I don’t have the space to cover it all here today. You can listen to the series on our website.
There were 12 cartoons published by the newspaper. Two Imams tried to stir up trouble at a rally but no violence occurred. These two Imams took the story to the Middle East and they fabricated a false story by adding three new images that were not published in the Danish newspaper. They were very offensive to Muslims.
The cartoons were on our website but are missing. Here is the link to the page and I will get them back up as soon as I can.
What Does The Qur’an Say About Free Speech?
There is no such thing as freedom of speech in Islam. If one says anything against Islam it is blasphemy and slander and it carries the death penalty. This is why the issue of the cartoons is so important. According to Islamic law those who drew them must be killed. Islam operates in a fascist system.
If a Muslim dares to criticize Islam he becomes an apostate and is subject to the death penalty. This is why it is so hard to get a Muslim to even look at their ideology. Islam violates all five tenants of the First Amendment; freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of the press, and freedom of assembly. Everyone, including preachers, who refuses to speak out against Islam is doing the work of Islam.
Every time the media makes excuses, every time they say we shouldn’t criticize them because they will kill us, they are advancing Sharia. They are carrying the water for Islam. They are saying we actually are second class to Islam.
The Muslim Brotherhood has stated in their own documents the they will destroy us by our own hands. This is what they are doing when they get us to make excuses for them and to get our media and politicians to tell us not to upset Muslims.
The media, our politicians, and even some “Christian” preachers, say that the Qur’an doesn’t say they should kill anyone who defames Muhammad. They are absolutely wrong.
Surah 33:57-62-“Lo! those who malign Allah and His messenger, Allah hath cursed them in the world and the Hereafter, and hath prepared for them the doom of the disdained.”
…Accursed wherever they are found, [being] seized and massacred completely.
The first penalty for maligning Allah or Muhammad is to go to Hell (doom of the disdained). The second penalty is to be seized and massacred completely. Reliance of the Traveler, which is the legal handbook for all of Islam, says the following concerning this subject:
p.9.0 – Lying about the prophet …[This is] the established way of Allah with those who passed on before; and you will not find in the way of Allah any change.”
The Hadith are as binding on Muslims as the Qur’an. They are the words and acts of Muhammad and they say the same things.
Bukhari (59:369)- Recounts the murder of Ka’b bin al-Ashraf, a Jewish poet who wrote verses about Muslims that Muhammad found insulting.He asked his followers, ‘Who will rid me of this man?’ and several volunteered. al-Ashraf was stabbed to death while fighting for his life.
Here we have the Prophet, himself, asking someone to kill someone who spoke against him. The Qur’an tells Muslims some 95 times to follow the example of Muhammad.
In this following quote is Muhammad commanding the killing of those who mocked him in Mecca.
Bukhari (4:241)- Those who mocked Muhammad at Mecca were killed after he had retaken the city and asserted his authority.
This is why I am so concerned about what Obama said at the United Nations. He said:
The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam.
It should concern us when the President of the United States accepts and supports Islamic law.
Here is what I have to say, “The future must belong to those who are courageous enough to expose the Prophet of Islam.” We must do this in truth and in love, but we must do it.
We must know the truth about Islam if we are not to be overrun by this evil ideology. This is our mission at Fortress of Faith. We need your support to keep getting this information out. If you can help us stay on the air you can make a donation on our website.
