"...shaking off the culture and rule of the filthy Kuffar..."

Is there anyone here... amongst the believers that is... that dare doubt that the Prophets and Messengers of God all wished for the same. Is it not the case that they have asked, wished, nay commanded that the believers should follow the right path?

So what is this secular and immoral society that promotes legalised gambling, pornography, that war mongers and never itself repents while all we do is with this false Democracy is to replace one defunked system with the next every few years? While our Government has for some 60 years been sponsoring, invading, slaughtering, terrorising and usurping foreign and sovereign affairs .. are these not the conduct of Empire? Should we ask the innocent families and natives of those in Bolivia, Guatamala, El Salvador, Honduras or Nicaragua? Should we ask those in Panama or Venezuela? Should we ask those children in Vietnam, Iran, Iraq and Afghanistan who were bombed in their beds?

Should we ask any of our administrations...Kissinger, Nixon, or the Bush family who are so inextricably linked to the Nazism that we have all come to hate?

Has not the West always been and is now proof positive of its existence as the extension and continuation of the old Greco-Roman pagan system? It is that same system that of course attempted to slaughter our Prophets and always persecuted them.

Imagine it today... were a Prophet to re-appear.. with his bronze skin, his beard long and speaking a foreign tongue....Arabic, Aramaic or something of the like... imagine it... if he condemned pig meat, if he condemned the farce, slavery and injustice that is the modern system of banking and finance (built on thin air and run to bankruptcy no less)... imagine it... if he fasted for a month or wore long robes and prayed on his knees prstrate before God. Perhaps his word for God would be Allah in Arabic as per Mohammed, or Allaha in Aramaic as per Jesus, or Ella in ancient Hebrew as per Moses.. imagine it... if he called for free trade and the overthrow of unjust governments... and the abolition of the system of interest and finance?

What if he did the modern equivalent of overturning the tabels on the steps of churches, if he went to war with those opposed to a kingdom of God on this Earth? What if he condemned Zionsim and the oppression which the Book of Moses so clearly condemned? What if he shirked modern capitalism, greed and all things immoral. What if he asked for the returning of the land to the indiginous peoples... what if he asked foreign powers to stop meddling in other peoples affairs?

...We know what the media of today would say. And one thing, we certainly know what the Government would say.

Irrefutably, he would be a threat to American interests; he would be a de facto terrorist.

So for those of us who are believers, be you Jew, Muslim or Christian... think carefully about the society we are living in today.. with our record divorces, our indencencies, or alcoholism, our drug addictions and our blind following of those who spread terror and war across the world. Is it so wrong to want change.. is it so wrong to want a world that everyone of the Prophets ordered us to create.

Is this so much better?

Are we not all empowered to do exactly that... shake off the culture and the rule of the filthy non-believers... those who are accursed above all others in the Torah, the Gospels and the Quran?

Submitting....
