This is what the modern Caliphate looks like. Global jihad marches forward, as the U.S. and West retreat. We are in a world of hurt.

Life under Shariah. Very sad development. These Christians are the people the West should be helping...

They need to review what Christ told us about situations like this.

Luke 22:36 "He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one. "

The time to defend the faith is upon us. And by defense, I mean, fight back against those who would kill you for your faith.

This is today. Not in the middle ages. Today, in “civilized” countries.

This will be all over the 6 oclock news, right? Under human rights abuses, right?

Lindsey Graham and Barack Obama are no doubt jubilant at this development—another of their missions accomplished.

Essentially, what these people have done is allow the mohammedans to rape and kill them slowly, rather than behead them at the outset.

Western countries should be damned for not helping them.

I saw a bumper sticker promoting “Christians for Justice and Peace”.

I looked at their website. What a horrifying anti-God, Socialist/Communist nest of vipers. It appears that the American Communist Party just stuck the words Christian and God in at various places from a reprinted article from one of their newsletters.

It's even more Leftist and totalitarian that TIME magazine!
It talks about love throughout their articles, while at the same time asking readers to beg for a regime such as the “dear leader” has in North Korea.

If people fall for this insane satanic Socialist garbage, how safe are we from having people who think that they are “Christians” submitting to allah here in the US.

Heaven help us!

This is only the first of many restriction to follow - they really want Christians gone or dead!

I hate it when someone posts a thread with only one line of text because most freepers will comment on the title or that single phrase without taking the time to review the actual source or read the article in its entirety.

The article comes from the Times of Israel. According to the text:

The authenticity of the document, displaying the stamp of al-Qaeda, could not be independently verified.

IOW, there may be some truth to it but odds also favor it being a spurious document intended to garner more attention.

We shall keep our gates wide open for passersby and travelers. We shall give board and lodging to all Muslims who pass our way for three days.

We shall not give shelter in our churches or in our dwellings to any spy, nor bide him from the Muslims.

We shall not teach the Qur’an to our children.

We shall not manifest our religion publicly nor convert anyone to it. We shall not prevent any of our kin from entering Islam if they wish it.

We shall show respect toward the Muslims, and we shall rise from our seats when they wish to sit.

We shall not seek to resemble the Muslims by imitating any of their garments, the qalansuwa, the turban, footwear, or the parting of the hair. We shall not speak as they do, nor shall we adopt their kunyas.

We shall not mount on saddles, nor shall we gird swords nor bear any kind of arms nor carry them on our- persons.

We shall not engrave Arabic inscriptions on our seals.

We shall not sell fermented drinks.

We shall clip the fronts of our heads.

We shall always dress in the same way wherever we may be, and we shall bind the zunar round our waists

We shall not display our crosses or our books in the roads or markets of the Muslims. We shall use only clappers in our churches very softly. We shall not raise our voices when following our dead. We shall not show lights on any of the roads of the Muslims or in their markets. We shall not bury our dead near the Muslims.

We shall not take slaves who have beenallotted to Muslims.

We shall not build houses overtopping the houses of the Muslims.

(When I brought the letter to Umar, may God be pleased with him, he added, “We shall not strike a Muslim.”)

We accept these conditions for ourselves and for the people of our community, and in return we receive safe-conduct.

If we in any way violate these undertakings for which we ourselves stand surety, we forfeit our covenant [dhimma], and we become liable to the penalties for contumacy and sedition.

Umar ibn al-Khittab replied: Sign what they ask, but add two clauses and impose them in addition to those which they have undertaken. They are: “They shall not buy anyone made prisoner by the Muslims,” and “Whoever strikes a Muslim with deliberate intent shall forfeit the protection of this pact.”

from Al-Turtushi, Siraj al-Muluk, pp. 229-230.
