Mehdi Nemmouche: Brussels Jewish Museum Terrorist is French Muslim Jihadi Returning From Syria; Media Making Excuses

By Debbie Schlussel

Surprise! The terrorist who shot up the Jewish Museum of Brussels is an Arab Muslim from France, Mehdi Nemmouche, recently returned from jihadism in Syria. Uh-huh, he’s one of the guys that Obama and Joe Lieberman and John McCain continue to implore us to support. He murdered three, including an Israeli couple, Emmanuel and Mira Riva, and a fourth person is in critical condition in the hospital.

YEAH, THAT’S ISLAM . . .

Mourners at the Funeral of Emmanuel & Mira Riva, Victims of Mehdi Nemmouche’s Jihad

Predictably, The HAMAS New York Times is already making excuses, saying he came from an “impoverished” town and that the “motive” for his jihad at the Jewish Museum “remains unclear.” Huh? Here’s the motive: he’s Muslim, they’re Jews, it was a Jewish museum. Got that, morons?

Oh, and don’t think this couldn’t or wouldn’t happen here in America. The problem with Islamic terrorists returning from Syria–and there are many of those with valid American passports–is that they impose their jihad everywhere else. More of this to come in the West. Remember. . .

THIS. IS. ISLAM. . . .

A man suspected of the fatal shootings at the Jewish Museum in Brussels last week has been arrested in southern France, French and Belgian officials said on Sunday. The man, identified in news media reports as Mehdi Nemmouche, 29, is believed to have traveled to Syria last year, perhaps to join with radical Islamist fighters there. Mr. Nemmouche, a former resident of Tourcoing, an impoverished industrial city in northeastern France along the Belgium border, was taken into custody on Friday after he got off a bus in Marseille that had come from Amsterdam by way of Brussels, police officials said. . . .












He was carrying a Kalashnikov assault rifle, a handgun, ammunition, a baseball cap and a small video recording device. Those items match descriptions of the shooter in Brussels, whose calm, deliberate attack at the museum was partly captured by video monitors. . . .

Mr. Nemmouche, who reportedly spent at least two years in prison for his involvement in the armed robbery of a small supermarket in his home city in 2009, is believed to have left for Syria in 2013, shortly after his release from prison, and to have returned to Europe in March, the French newspaper Le Monde reported. French officials say that more than 700 French citizens, most of them young Arab men from the drab housing projects that ring many major French cities, have left to fight in Syria.

Like I said, plenty like him in the U.S. How many? The FBI and other authorities haven’t a clue. And you can bet the number is pretty high here, too.

Wanna protect yourself from this halal garbage? Get a gun permit, buy a gun, and get a concealed pistol license if you can.

Nobody is gonna protect you from this trash. Heck, they refuse to secure the borders. And the virus has spread.

Learn how to shoot and get the means to do so.

That Was Then . . .

“Learn how to shoot and get the means to do so.”

Not an optional decision these days. Teach your children to shoot also.

DS_ROCKS! on June 1, 2014 at 2:55 pm

    You’ve got that so right…

    another radical islamic hit man just doin his job
    how many more of them out there ?
    and the inane street media buries its head in the sand
    what cowards

    HK on June 1, 2014 at 3:12 pm

I expect the regulars here strongly suspected that the murderer would be a Mooooslim. Brussels is full of ‘em, this is a Jewish museum, and there was a blackout on any demographic info on the perp.

skzion on June 1, 2014 at 4:06 pm

    There was probably a 95% likelihood from the beginning. I think anybody who actually cared took it as a given. Especially in Brussels.

    ersatzF on June 1, 2014 at 4:40 pm

Dear Ms. Schlussel,

I was looking for info on that Jihadist trash who shot up the Jewish Museum in Belgium and found your site.

Self introduction:

I am from an Islamic country in Asia, but I am a Catholic. I did stay in the States from the 70′s to the 90′s and am very familiar with the States, Australia and Europe

In the States, even back in the 1970′s, there already had been a lot of Muslims inside the States. A lot of the international students who studied in the universities were Muslims, and unlike the Christians, all the Muslims tend to flock together – even when they were from different countries, cultures, and races

As I was from an Islamic country I do know how to speak the Arabic language and because I know the danger of Islam and wanted to know how deep the penetration of Islam had been inside the heartland of the United States of America I mixed with those Muslims

They mistook me for one of them (Muslim) and they introduced me to many of their circles in many states (from Florida to Minnesota) and in almost everywhere they have “safe houses” that all the Muslim students can stay, for free

You Americans can never imagine, even back in the 1970′s and 1980′s how well connected the Muslims were. Their network was extensive (and I am pretty sure that the ones that I’ve introduced to was only a small part of the actual structure of the web them Muslims have constructed inside America) and they can land you jobs that ordinary Americans can’t even get

Even in the Wall Street they have “implants” inside (yes, Islam does forbid what Wall Street is doing but that does not stop them from infiltrating the financial heart of the world’s economy) and any Muslim student who are good at finance, or any financial-related field can easily find a job there as their “implants” can pull string for that new rookie

When I read your piece about that trash who shot up the Jewish Museum in Belgium you mentioned that nobody knows how many of them Muslims are already inside America – what you do not know is many of them Muslims don’t even appear as Muslims – they look just like many other Americans and many of them are Caucasians (from Turkey, Iran, Bosnia or the Caucacus – and they do blend in very well

And you never know when they will take up arms to shoot you guys either

I am telling you this because I know that most Americans are good people and I have had a lot of great experiences with my American friends, and I wouldn’t want to see bloodbath in the street of America but I am afraid one of these days you guys are gonna see it because Islam is already very deeply entrenched inside the U. S. of A.

The problem with America (as well as Europe, Australia) is that the liberals are way beyond stupid – and them Muslims are taking advantage of the stupidity of those liberals – and that the influence of those damn liberals are so great most American/European/Australian kids are brainwashed by the liberal media to think that Islam is a “peaceful” religion – so much so that even in the States you guys have elected a Muslim into the White House, not once, but twice

That Obama may tell you that he ain’t a Muslim, but he is – I have been observing Obama since he got elected and almost everything that he does (which has any relation with Islam) he does his best to *SERVE* Islam

The unfortunate thing is, most Americans, Europeans and Australians have no clue as to the nature of Islam – even many of my friends today (from those places) still tell me that Islam is a “peaceful religion” and when I asked them how they know they told me that the media say so so it must be true

Yes, that’s stupidity, I know, but unfortunately, most people from America, Europe and Australia are beyond stupid

I am glad that at least you are not one of them

Anyway, peace !

potato on June 1, 2014 at 4:25 pm

    the conduit into the US has been via Farrakhan and the nation of (piss on you)islam ….the contemporary underground railroad…..tell the White Aryan Brothers theyve been played..the real enemy are these moooslims…so white boys, if you still want your country, wake up,…get them radical mooslims if you have any real manly balls..

    HK on June 1, 2014 at 5:29 pm

      Reading from the replies I can tell that most of you guys in America have no chance against them Muslims

      Don’t you guys/gals understand this yet ?

      The White Skin folks are the most vulnerable to be converted to Islam, and unlike Christianity, converting into Islam is a ONE WAY STREET, aka Hotel California scenario

      When I was hanging out with the Muslims in America they proudly introduced me to the new “brothers” and almost all of them are Caucasians

      There were some “sisters” too but they are mostly converted because of married to male Muslims

      Don’t you ever think only the “white trash” are converting into Islam – people with very high level of education, like one professor from the Rice University, also converted

      And she not only converted, she converted all her three young daughters as well, and she was the “star” of a Nat Geo documentary on the Haj to Mecca

      potato on June 2, 2014 at 6:52 am

The French were very offended when people pointed out that an influx of Muslims would create problems for Jewish communities.

ersatzF on June 1, 2014 at 4:34 pm

    Have you been to Marseille ?

    Have you been to the 13th district of Paris ?

    Both have become Islamic slums

    And I will not be the least surprised if a human bomber, or even a car bomb explodes in the busy Champs Elysees not long from now

    They have carried out bombings in the Madrid Train Station and the London tube – wait till they strike the French

    potato on June 2, 2014 at 7:59 am

No they said, this is France.
Now many are leaving France.
Does it help to be proven right? The French quite enjoy being offended.

ersatzF on June 1, 2014 at 4:35 pm

Just like the media did with Mohamed Merah.

Rocky Lore on June 1, 2014 at 6:00 pm

Potato,

Thank you for your insightful words.

Facts of Life on June 1, 2014 at 6:11 pm

Medhdi Nemmouche is not a remarkable figure, which is most fortunate, He apparently did not even have a serious escape plan in place, which leads me to believe that he wished to be captured. I suspect that Belgium will be subjected to an Islamic diatribe during the criminal trial of Mehdi Nemmouche.

Worry01 on June 1, 2014 at 9:32 pm

    -///”Medhdi Nemmouche is not a remarkable figure, which is most fortunate, He apparently did not even have a serious escape plan in place///-

    Apparently you do not understand the Muslims

    If you guys want to fight the Muslims you need to think like one – or else you guys will have no chance against them

    That was why I hang out with them when I was in the States, because I needed to know what they were doing, what was their state of mind, how they think, and what were they up to

    You guys are still thinking as “Americans” — and when you country been invaded by the Muslims, you can not afford to think like “Americans” while trying to root them out

    As I have stated, I was in the States in between the 1970′s and the 1990′s, and when I was there, there was already a nationwide Muslim network set up, with safe houses and contacts in high places, easy job placement, and so on

    Which means, BEFORE I arrived in America they have already started their invasion — and they have done it very discreetly, always keeping a very low profile, every done under-the-radar and you guys had (and still have) no idea what was (and is) going on

    I left America at late 1990′s, that’s almost 20 years ago, and who knows how much more connected that Muslim network has become – and who knows if they have added more “facilities“, such as ammunition depot, training camps, indoctrination centers, and so much more

    If you guys and gals are really serious about stopping this low-level invasion you need to know them

    You need to know their worldview

    You need to know how they function

    You need to know them more than they know themselves, before you can start fighting them

    Or else, America will no longer be the America I know. Instead of a National Cathedral you guys will have a National Mosque

    Instead of placing your hand on a Bible or Torah when you swear, the Quran will take their place

    Instead of having Saturday and Sunday as your weekend, you guys will have Thursday and Friday as your weekend

    Maybe that will not happen in your lifetime, but I can guarantee you that if you guys do nothing, your children will face that kind of future – the future that we are facing right here, in the country that I am from

    potato on June 2, 2014 at 7:05 am

I’d like to thank potato for logging on and giving the wisdom and comments. I hope you stay around here.

I could literally go in to chapter and verse of the predictions I have made, beginning after the death of Elvis Presley, about what was going to happen to America. It has all happened, but I am by no means the first or only one to say these things. I have made certain specific predictions, and certain general ones, but again, by no means alone in these observations.

One thing I did say after the incident in Lebanon on October 23, 1983, was that sort of thing would come to American soil some day. But by that point in my life, I had learned the futility of saying such things to many people, even my family, best friends, other friends and acquaintances and co-workers. I do believe that God has written something on my forehead, which I can’t see when I look in the mirror, but everyone else can.

It says something like, ‘disregard my words, ridicule me, and disrespect me.’ So, I don’t say anything to anyone anymore. When the USS Cole had a hole blown in its side, I said the next one will be on our soil, and in about a years time.

But in Amerika, the beat goes on. Gay marriage is the new issue which one-issue voters focus on. It used to be unfettered abortion rights. I know a devout leftist who used to chat with Muslim shopkeepers in his neighborhood back in the mid 1980′s. They used to yuck it up together, since much of his leftist ideology was wrapped around the theme of seeing America brought low. So, they had no problem telling him how much they hated America, and were going to bring it down.

But in Amerika, the beat goes on. The Kanye West-Kim Kardashian wedding is one of the top news stories, whatever Victoria’s Secret Brazilian underwear model Adriana Lima says makes headlines, including the fact that she recently had sex with Justin Bieber, and whoever just came out as gay is “breaking news.” In Amerika, the beat goes on.

But thank you, potato. Please keep commenting. Very sobering and very sad, what you said, but unvarnished truth is more important than any other form of discourse.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on June 1, 2014 at 11:30 pm

    I could literally go in to chapter and verse of the predictions I have made, beginning after the death of Elvis Presley, about what was going to happen to America.

    I could go a little further in pinpointing when this decline began to crystallize, more specifically 1971 when the 26th Amendment was passed. Every so often, Debbie has mentioned how America would have been a better country in terms of its leaders and overall direction had it not been for the women’s vote – but I wonder if this would have also been the case if it weren’t for 18-year-olds being granted the vote, as well. I read in some other places that as far back as the 1950′s Eisenhower advocated lowering the minimum voting age. But he and others like him assumed that the young’uns coming up would have been properly educated and informed, as well as being morally and religiously virtuous. None of them anticipated the Left’s takeover of our schools, colleges, media, etc. (i.e. the “long march through the institutions”), that began just a few years prior to the 26th Amendment’s passage, and began the process what could be politely called “indoctrination” – and also involved radicalization. This, of course, has had the effect of turning “get out the vote” drives for 18-year-olds into a de facto facilitation of the lurch of our political structure (and direction of this country) further and further to the Left, with the accompanying sicknesses (and overall decline of this once great republic) following thereafter. A portent of the future in this regard was in 1976 when Jimmy Carter was elected President – a good portion of it coming from the 18-29 vote, having been swayed in large part by “Saturday Night Live” sketches where Gerald Ford was portrayed (by Chevy Chase) as a bumbling stumblebum, klutz and buffoon, not to mention the drumbeat of publications such as Rolling Stone that targeted this age group. (And Chase and “SNL” guru Lorne Michaels both openly brag to this day about how they helped bring about Ford’s defeat in that election.) The “youth” demographic therefore was culpable in enabling the period of “malaise” which followed, not to mention the rise of militant Islam with the ushering in of the Ayatollah Khomeini in Iran in 1979 and the 444-day hostage crisis which followed. Indeed, unless I read the statistics wrong, only two GOP Presidential candidates carried the youth vote – Reagan in 1984, and George Bush in 1988. But the election of Bill Clinton in 1992 (and again in 1996) was one of the danger signs of the dumbing-down of the next generation, with that demographic voting based on whether or not he inhaled whilst smoking marijuana, and whether he wore boxers or briefs. Their vote for Obama in 2008 and 2012 proves beyond a doubt how little the “millennials” care, if at all, about national security, borders, language, culture, or our very survival and that of Western civilization. They essentially, more often than not, have consistently voted for American decline, moral decay, cultural rot, civilizational disintegration and societal destruction. The “values” they were taught in schools and colleges are the exact same that were “learned” by such infamous traitors as Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden. They are the ultimate “low-information” voters, getting much of their cues from Hollywood leftists in film, TV, etc. whilst learning (or more precisely, being taught) absolutely nothing about American history, the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, Bill of Rights et al. And their conduct in places such as the campus at Brandeis University viz Ayaan Hirsi Ali shows how dangerous this age demographic has become in this regard (and that’s to say nothing of their being top-heavy amongst the “shock troops” of the Occupy movement). Whether or not they carry on in this path of leftist radicalization via indoctrination into liberalism, political correctness, moral relativism, sexual decadence and so forth, past their college years is becoming increasingly iffy, but there is no doubt that it is at 18 that their voting choices have wrought possibly irreparable damage to this country.

    What does this have to do with the Brussels shooting? Connect. The. Dots. The 18-year-old vote also helped usher in a class of politicians that engineered this trend of mass Muslim immigration to America (from both parties, alas – although with the Democrats, there’s the matter of malice aforethought, though Republicans cannot and should not be let off the hook by any means).

    ConcernedPatriot on June 2, 2014 at 7:35 am

      Well, indeed it did begin way before the death of Elvis Presley, just used that as a point where I personally began to say some things. But ten years prior to that I used to hear my father, when he picked me up on visiting days, talk about the country going down, and how it was going to happen. Also, as a youngster in the American public educational system, I remember well the radical changes that occurred during the late 60′s, and the detriment it brought about.

      And on at least one occasion here I have made note of how my fifth grade teacher, this would have been early to mid-1966, brought a six grader in to the class to teach us about how our negative reaction to the word “communism” was wrong, and that it was really a beautiful philosophy based on the “all men are created equal” principle in our founding documents.

      Let’s not forget also how I have pinpointed Herbert W. Armstrong’s book, The United States and Britain In Prophecy, first published in 1942, undergoing several revisions, last printing in 1975. I first read it in 1985, and everything in that book has either come true, or is coming true.

      It’s a long way to Tipperary, and it’s been a long way to America’s tipping point, and ultimate demise, with a lot of milestones to point to along the way. But the death of Elvis Presley should have been a long overdue wake up call to anyone who hadn’t been aware of it up until that time. His beginnings, meteoric rise to incredible fame, fortune, and a power of sorts, as well his horrible crash and death, should have been seen as a message to the entire nation.

      It wasn’t, and the rest is history. What happened after his death, was America’s head first plunge in to even more hedonism, decadence and immorality, all while Reagan was president, an interesting cultural contradiction.

      The heyday of Studio 54, the MTV generation, Hip Hop Nation, with its smooth entrance eventually bringing hard core gangsters to the forefront, with a pretense of caring about peace and the environment, breast implants and facelifts for everyone, rampant performance enhancing drug use in sports, along with the justification factor, and a society where money replaced God, the list is endless. Champagne wishes and caviar dreams, remember that one?

      And America, . . .

      is ended. Already.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on June 1, 2014 at 11:46 pm

So the motive for this shooting is, in PC terms, “unclear”? But of course in Newspeak that means “its very clear indeed”.

Potato, I found your post interesting as we lived and worked in a fundamentalist Muslim country for many years. We lived separately really, in our expat bubble. But we do have many happy memories of those years. Met many lovely people – Muslim and otherwise. My husband was able to dive the Red Sea so often that he was able to disprove the theory of evolution – if there was anything in it, he would have rudimentary gills by now.

I have explained before why I am careful how I talk about it, this is an area fraught with divisive politics – with brother being set against brother by the powerful currents of “the world”.

One result – the murders at the museum.

I believe – of course,as I am a Jehovah’t Witness – that this shows the importance of the Christian preaching work. People urgently need to know that we are all brothers and sisters, all the children of Adam, all suffering the same damage, and all in need of the same rescue.

    Bad-kneed sue is back. Praise the Lord!

    sue is the anti-potato. She tries to convert Jews here but can’t be bothered with the conversion of Mooooslims. In fact, she cannot even bring herself to criticize them.

    sue will also not engage the criticisms of her critics. Sure she’ll “respond,” but not to the substance.

    skzion on June 2, 2014 at 11:35 am

a lovely thesis, assuming your experiences are true, how would you deal with the radical islamic jihadist factions that would as easily behead you as pee in the sand? That was the fate of a Christian minister in Syria a few months ago.

HK on June 2, 2014 at 7:13 am

    Do you know how we remain as Catholics while over 99% of them are Muslims ?

    We know them better than they know themselves

    We know their religion better than they know their religion

    We know what they are going to say before they say it, what they are doing to do before they do it — in other words, we are well prepared for whatever they have in mind

    We do it not because we are smarter than them – we do it because of our own survival

    As your country is being invaded, you guys can no longer be complacent – sooner or later you guys will find yourselves surrounded by them (with the help of their mindless liberal supporters)

    As for the extreme Jihadists they only know one language – FORCE

    You do not surrender to extreme Jihadists – the only option for you is to send them to their Allah before they send you to your God – as there is no other option

    The Muslims think differently because they have been indoctrinated, since they were toddlers, by their teachers in the Madrassa, that to die for their religion, for their Allah, is to be a Martyr, and all Martyrs will get justly rewarded

    That is why they are not afraid to die – for them, “death“, is but a necessary step to attain “eternal glory

    potato on June 2, 2014 at 7:43 am

    Hello HK, we have had a young soldier hacked to death on the streets of London, and, yes, we did live under Sharia Law for many years. So I am well aware of the problems… And I understand why people are worried.

    But followers of Christ are asked to be “no part” of the world, to take no part in its divisive politics and its wars. That is, if you think about, a safeguard for others too, as we can never enforce our beliefs, either directly or indirectly.

    For example, we don’t vote, so no politician in a marginal seat is going to say, well, what can I do to get the JW vote. There is no such vote. He can do what he likes without taking our beliefs into account.

    But the true God, the God of Abraham, has promised that He will remove all the wicked and the violent from the earth and will restore Paradise.

    Can’t we trust His promises with all our heart?

    sue on June 2, 2014 at 10:19 am

      In other words, HK, sue counsels that we rely on G-d to solve our problems and, until then, to sit on our hands, waiting to be killed. This is not Judaism OR Christianity. It is, in particular, totally at odds with Jewish law, which forbids us to rely on Hashem for miracles.

      If more people were like sue–if her proselytising were more effective–Islam would have defeated us already.

      skzion on June 2, 2014 at 11:44 am

        Sue longs for nothing so much as death. That is why she does not really make a good Christian.

        ersatzF on June 2, 2014 at 12:39 pm

          Hello ersatzF – I want to live! I want to be here, on the earth a thousand years from now – a million years from now – which is why I am trying to obey my Creator.

          I want to “inherit the earth”. I hope we all will.

          sue on June 2, 2014 at 1:57 pm

          Sue,
          You sound nice but you are slightly over anxious to find your eternal reward and for this to be contagious would not be a good thing.
          That would be like a rash of suicide bombers except in this case suicide victims.
          The problem here is that I get the feeling that the quicker they finish you off the quicker you’ll be collecting the lottery upstairs.
          This is not optimal.

          Inheritance is for future generations. I’m not sure exactly how you came by the misconception that the meek inheriting the earth meant that they would live a million years on it but clearing this up might help your case.
          Assuming the case belongs to you.

          ersatzF on June 2, 2014 at 6:08 pm

      Sue, you and I are in accord insofar as we believe that Christ is The Savior, He is coming to establish his throne, eternal peace, God’s Perfect Law, and as His Word says, “to wipe away every tear.”

      But there are things I don’t understand about your approach. We are living in Satan’s world. We are mired in a time and world which God Himself understands is most difficult for us, each and every moment. And we are all indeed, sinners. But even God’s Word says, in the writings of the Apostle Paul, “as far as possible, be at peace with all men.” So, let’s explore the “as far as POSSIBLE” aspect.

      If I see anyone on our family farm coming to steal my cousin’s horses, should I say, wait here, and I’ll bring some more for you to take, because you obviously have more need of them than he? If when I go up to NYC, am walking down the street and see a woman having her purse snatched, should I go up to the thief and say, please allow me to help you, since your desperation shows that you are more deserving of her worldly goods than she?

      If I see a crowd of youths assaulting a person just for fun, as often happens, especially in urban areas, should I just allow it, perhaps even join in? No, in every case named above, and countless others, those attacks should be repelled by surrounding and motivated persons empowered to help. The people empowered and motivated to assist those being attacked should ask The Lord Jesus Christ for righteous assistance in repelling such attacks, and then proceed to give every ounce of assistance they can muster.

      It takes a certain level of violence to repel wanton and unprovoked acts of violence. This level of violence should be accomplished with the understanding that going any further could result in unrighteousness on the part of righteous defenders. For example, in the case of a purse snatcher, my job would be to repel the attack and try to secure the woman’s purse for her, not to beat or stab the attacker to death, as much as I might like to.

      But in the case of this Islamic menace, which is like a metastasizing cancer, now having spread to pretty much every area of the earth, there is only one way to repel it, and that is with extreme force. Look at the children standing around this idiot Rachel Corrie in a previous article. These children are raised in an indoctrinated state, products of hate, grow up to hate, and continue the march of Islam’s onslaught against DOS (Discipline, Order and Structure).

      Giving bin Laden a hug, as actor Richard Gere suggested the USA do after 911, is not an appropriate response.

      We all are muddling through this terrible mess of a world as best as we can. God will indeed come to sort things out some day. But in the meantime, we cannot lay down and say okay, we are the United States, we hereby renounce the defense of our nation, please break in to our homes, kill our children, gun us down in the streets, blow up our places of work and worship, enact Sharia Law and exterminate us until there are nothing left but Muslims on what was formerly American soil.

      But that is indeed happening, isn’t it? And shame on us, for not defending our wonderful Founding, as faulty as it may have been, with regard to slavery and certain other practices.

      Alfredo from Puerto Rico on June 2, 2014 at 12:05 pm

      Sue,
      “if you think about, a safeguard for others too” -
      No, it isn’t as you interpret it because it allows others to do whatever they wish to those we are too pious to protect.
      Taken to an extreme you would not even be able to interfere with a somebody who tried to harm a member of your own family.
      This is the mentality of cattle not human beings.

      but sweet sue, you are part of the “world” and you do live within its “divisive politics” . Silly sue, you are being drawn into it and you dont even realize it. Did you close your eyes and try and wish that the poor UK soldier’s live dismemberment never happened ? Wishing and praying doesnt make it go away sue, doesnt make it stop. the Gd of Abraham gave us the power of free will, the power to act, physically , to repel those forces of evil . Gd doesnt do it, you have to do it, so are you going to remain paralyzed while your family, your loved ones, your life is destroyed ? are you going to accept your responsibility or are you going to continue to deny and project this responsibility onto an abstract concept, the simpler thing to do and the surest road to death

    Sue would say that everybody is entitled to their own martyrdom in Christ. She cannot interfere in worldly affairs.

This is a prime reason why Muslims should not own guns. To them they are for shooting people.

“Teach your children to shoot also.”

Absolutely!

A good weapon to start with is Henry Rifle’s AR7 survivor rifle.

Hello Ersatz, no I don’t want to be martyred!! no no no I have a backbone of solid custard and am a complete wimp. (Oh and skzion my knees are brand new now, its the rest of me that isn’t.)

If you ever hear of me behaving courageously, you can be sure it is only because i asked my Creator, the God of Abraham, for help and he kindly gave it.

I do not want to die and leave this beautiful beautiful world for the dreamless sleep of death. But, if I do, I hope that Jehovah will remember me for good and wake me up again. I want to be here on the earth a million years from now, maybe watching the sun set over a beautiful wild beach. And in all my million years I will never have seen a sunset exactly like it, nor ever will in the next million years.

I hope we are all there.

And it is not a question of doing nothing. We have to try to tell people what the Inspired Scriptures say. They are extraordinarily powerful for changing people and for setting things straight. Its not easy, going door to door, or mailbox to mailbox, with your Bible. Sometimes I get both scared and depressed and have to do a lot of praying.

I remember once a few years ago, in London, at a very fraught time. Some young Muslims had bombed a bus. I was visiting my aunt, and London was full of soldiers and armed police – and Captain Butterfly (my husband) had asked me not to go on the tube, or the bus (just in case). So I got taxis.

One taxi driver was a Somali Muslim. And I had quite an intense discussion with him about the Bible. When I paid and got out, he called me back. He said that he wanted to tell me how much he had enjoyed our talk. I am not a glamorous young thing by the way (if only!). I am three years off my sell-by date, under the 3 score years and 10 rule. So it was what I told him that he liked, it wasn’t me.

God’s word is alive and exerts power. Please never under-estimate it, or the value of the Christian preaching work.
