A In the last few months, we have watched horrific terrorists attacks take place in Europe and on American soil.
1 In Paris, mid-November, coordinated attacks in the “city of lights” killing 130 Italians.
a The group known as ISIL took credit for the attacks.
aa ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and Levant) is the group known in the media as ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.)
bb The subtle difference is really a big deal.
b In the Middle Ages, Muslims controlled the territory of Syria, Palestine and Egypt.
aa It declares an entire region to be under strict Muslim law.
bb In ISIL, the entire Middle East is under Muslim rule, with no room for a nation of Israel in the midst of their Muslim government.
2 Last month, in San Bernardino, California 14 were killed and 21 wounded when a woman who was here from Pakistan, who had recently sworn allegiance to ISIS & Abu Bakr al-Bagdadi.
a National leaders had just recently assured the nation that no “credible” terror threats on American soil.
aa Our intelligence can never know all the threats/plots...
bb The President is either naive or ignoring the real threat of Islamic terrorism.
b At a recent summit he refused to say Muslim Terrorists, instead chose to says, “No religion is responsible for terrorism — people are responsible for violence and terrorism,” Obama told a crowd that included Muslim community leaders at the White House.
B The two Muslim Terrorists were killed by police as they fled the scene.
1 They were dressed in military garb, bulletproof vests and armed to the teeth with assault rifles, handguns, rounds of ammo and pipe bombs.
a Work place violence? Nope, planned attack.
b The police believe the Islamic attackers were on their way to commit more terrorist attacks on innocent people.
2 What the American public heard from the President and Press was, “Don’t jump to conclusions. It may not have anything to do with terrorism.”
a It didn’t take about a few hours before we learned that Syed Rizwan Farook (28) was the son of Pakistani immigrants, recently traveled to Saudi Arabia to bring home a Pakistani woman that he had met online.
b Tashfeen Malik, 27, entered the US as Farook’s fiancee based on a provision in current immigration laws.
I The Satanic Tactic of Terror
A Terrorism, as a strategy, is designed to paralyze the victim with fear so they will not even fight back. . . take the fight out of you through fear.
1 It’s a form of psychological warfare that is perhaps as old as Cain’s descendant Lamech,
a Genesis 4:23-24 (NLT) 23 One day Lamech said to his wives, “Adah and Zillah, hear my voice; listen to me, you wives of Lamech. I have killed a man who attacked me, a young man who wounded me.24 If someone who kills Cain is punished seven times, then the one who kills me will be punished seventy-seven times!”
