Skip to comments.Islam's War on the Christian Cross
Posted on 06/07/2019 4:11:28 AM PDT by RoosterRedux
When asked about Islams ruling on whether any person -- in this case, Christians -- is permitted to wear or pray before the cross, Sheikh Abdul Aziz al-Tarifi, a Saudi expert on Islamic law, said, Under no circumstances is a human permitted to wear the cross nor is anyone permitted to pray to the cross. Why? Because the prophet -- peace and blessings on him -- commanded the breaking of it [the cross].
Islamic history is a reflection of these sentiments. For instance, the aforementioned Sheikh al-Tarifi also explained that if it is too difficult to break the cross -- for instance, a large concrete statue -- Muslims should at least try to disfigure one of its four arms so that it no longer resembles a cross. Historic and numismatic evidence confirms that, after the Umayyad caliphate seized the Byzantine treasury in the late seventh century, it ordered that one or two arms of the cross on the coins be effaced so that the image no longer resembled a crucifix (Sword and Scimitar, p. 54).
Testimonies from the very earliest invasions into Christian Syria and Egypt of Muslims systematically breaking every crucifix they encountered abound. According to Anastasius of Sinai, who lived during the seventh century Arab conquests, the demons name the Saracens [Arabs/Muslims] as their companions. And it is with reason. The latter are perhaps even worse than the demons, for whereas the demons are frequently much afraid of the mysteries of Christ, among which he mentions the cross, these demons of flesh trample all that under their feet, mock it, set fire to it, destroy it (Sword and Scimitar, p. 27).

Islam is evil and should not be tolerated.
The cross is a stumbling block better you fall on it than it fall and crush you. Islam cannot understand that dying to oneself and taking up your cross daily is a thing to be desired. Their god is a god of forces. They have this in common with Democrats I.e. when they seem to be losing they will double down on the outrage and madness
Save Thy people, O Lord,
and bless Thine inheritance.
Grant victory to Thy Church over her enemies,
and protect Thy people by Thy Holy Cross!
Some excellent teachings on the penultimate Icon which is the Cross in John the Damascene's treatise On the Holy Images--written as Islam was spreading like a cancer through the Byzantine empire.
“Islam is evil and should not be tolerated.”
Muzzies look forward to a final showdown with we whom they call “infidels”.
It’s long overdue. Should start with the nuking of Mecca.
Followed by the burning of every mosque/terrorist armory in America.
A key point to note is that Muslims say they only defend against “insults to islam” — now the Cross IS an insult to Islam; calling Jesus God IS an insult to Islam; not believing in Allah as God IS an insult to Islam.
Because the prophet — peace and blessings on him — commanded the breaking of it [the cross].
Can anyone find this command in the Koran? Or is it just another one of the demands of the early Caliph Omar?
Proof that the “god” of Islam is Satan. The cross is his nemesis and undoing.
Islam is not the problem. The problem is the leftists in western democracies who ally with them and enable them.
Oh my! Now I guess those thousands of crosses on the graves in the American Cemetery in Normandy will have to be removed to appease them.
It started out in the Quran as a Gnostic version of Jesus
It’s not the cross that is broken. It is the crescent that was broken into two houses that will never stop fighting.
