The morning of the anniversary of 9/11 the Fredericksburg Free-Lance Star newspaper promoted Islamic propaganda and Islamization among University of Mary Washington. college students.
The main articles featured in the regional news section dealt with local "Ramadan" observance and female Muslim students at UMW coaxing non-Muslim female students into wearing the "Hijab."
[Promotion of Islam and Islamization among college students]
"The Challenge Was To Wear A Hijab and See How It Felt."
One Muslim participant promoted the false Islamic teaching that the Allah of Islam is the same as the God of the Bible:
"Basically, if we all believe in one God, it must be the same God".
"The Allah of Islam is not the God of the Bible."
An "Inter-Faith Prayer Service" among Jews, Christians, and Muslims event was also promoted.
The fallacy of inter-faith dialogue:
Many different groups are promoting inter-faith dialogue. Cheif among them are well known Muslim individuals and groups. Including the King of Saudi Arabia who first proposed the UN's initiated interfaith dialogue.
The idea behind it is to focus on similarities and not on the large differences.
Such a thing can lead to making false moral equivilency, compromise, and indirectly lending credibility to the claims of a false relgion.
There are no Biblical examples of "inter-faith dialogue".
As stated above that there are no Biblical examples of "interfaith-dialogue", the question none the less was posed to readers at the Religion forum of Free Republic if they could cite any "Biblical" examples of interfaith-dialogue.
Another question posed was if interfaith dialogue could be used as a tool by Islamists for a kind of "stealth Islamization".
The resulting comments revealed that many are confused or have a wrong idea as to what interfaith-dialogue is.
Several of the commenters cited John 4:5-30, Yeshua's conversation with a Samaritan woman as an example. Others cited Paul's [Sha'ul] discourse with the Greeks in Athens.
Other commenters were quick to correctly respond that interfaith-dialogue is not the same as evangelism, and the Biblical accounts cited above were examples of evangelism, not interfaith-dialogue.
" Interfaith dialogue is a must today, and the first step in establishing it is forgetting the past, ignoring polemical arguments, and giving precedence to common points, which far outnumber polemical ones".
But Fethullah Gullen has a nefarious agenda behind his push for interfaith-dialogue: To deliberately cultivate the image of one who is "moderate" as a "cover" for his real Islamist ambition.
Rachel Sharon-Krespinn, writting for the Middle East Quarterly, reported that,-
" In 1999, Turkish television aired footage of Gullen delivering sermons to a crowd of followers in which he revealed his aspirations for an Islamist Turkey ruled by Sharia [Islamic law] as well as the methods that should be used to attain that goal."
"In the sermons, he [Gullen] said:
'You must move in the arteries of the system without anyone noticing your existence untill you reach all the power centers...until the conditions are ripe, they [the followers] must continue like this.'
And also this:
'You must wait for the time when you are complete and conditions are ripe, until we can shoulder the entire world and carry it... You must wait until such time as you have gotten all the state power, until you have brought to your side all the power of the constitutional institutions in Turkey...Until that time, any step taken would be too early--like breaking an egg without waiting the full forty days for it to hatch.'---Fethullah Gullen
While those statements made by Gullen were for his Islamist followers in Turkey, the same statements present an adequate appraisal of the Islamist "stealth" agenda for the U.S. As well as the rest of the non-Muslim world.
Read what Gullen said again, but substitute "United States" in place of "Turkey":
[You must wait for the time when you are complete and conditions are ripe, until we can shoulder the entire world and carry it... You must wait until such time as you have gotten all the state power, until you have brought to your side all the power of the constitutional institutions in United States... Until that time, any step taken would be too early--like breaking an egg without waiting the full forty days for it to hatch]
Hot news flash: Fethullah Gullen lives here in the U.S.A.! Has been since 1998.
According to the article Gullen has amassed about $ 25 billion from his Islamic "education empire, which has also been refered to as an "education jihad".
As made mention of previously, the UN's interfaith-dialogue was proposed by the Saudi king Abdullah.. With that in mind, the Saudi government spends $ billions to advance Islamization and Wahabbi ideology around the world.
Nearly 80% of U.S. mosques have been established with or recieved Saudi government funding.
According to a report by Open Doors, Saudi Arabia ranks 2nd right behind North Korea for persecution of it's citizens who are Christians.
At the same time that the Saudi king claims to promote interfaith-dialogue for the purpose of "understanding" and "tolerance", his own Saudi goverment's religious police, the Mutaween, busts through citizens doors in the middle of the night to confiscate and "burn" Bibles on a regular basis.
Christians in Saudi Arabia, and every other majority Muslim country, are a persecuted minority. They are treated as "Dhimmis" and 3rd class citizens.
The interfaith-dialogue promoted by Fethullah Gullen, Saudi king Abdullah [the UN] , and the World Council of Churches, seeks to divert attention away from the obvious differences, and instead focus on "common ground".
In the Biblical New Testament passage referenced above, John 4:5-30, we find the exact opposite of what interfaith-dialogue promotes:
The conversation begins with an invitation to the Samaritan woman from Yeshua [Jesus] to drink of the "living water". A little later in the conversation the woman acknowledged Yeshua as a prophet and said :
"Sir, I can see that you are a prophet," the woman repiled. "Our fathers worshipped on this mountain, but you people say that the place where one has to worship is in Yerushalayim [Jerusalem]."
Yeshua [Jesus] said, "Lady, believe me, the time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem."
[ It is at this point that instead of looking for common ground or similarities, the major key "difference" was addressed head on]--
"You people don't know what you are worshipping; we worship what we do know, because salvation comes from the Jews."
"But the time is coming--indeed, it's here now--when the true worshippers will worship the Father spiritually and truly, for these are the kind of people the Father wants worshipping Him.
"God is Spirit; and worshippers must worship Him spiritually and truly".-from John 4:5-30.
In their attempt to promote interfaith-dialogue, Muslims often begin with the false narrative that --"we worship the same God."
Former Queen Noor of Jordan engaged in that type of dialogue on late night TV on the Charlie Rose show. Queen Noor claimed "we worship the same God,we have the Bible, we have the same prophets".
Surely Queen Noor, a Muslim, is familiar with the Islamic teaching that the Jews and Christians "corrupted" their Scriptures [Bible].
But there she was on late night TV with Charlie Rose claiming "we have the Bible too."
It must be pointed out here that in Islam the Jewish prophets are re-invented as early Muslims.'The same is true with respect to Yeshua [Jesus].
Muslims often state, " we believe in Jesus too". But their Jesus is a Muslim, not the true Biblical Jesus, who is Himself-- the "mighty God" of Isaiah 9:5,6.
