Details on London’s Jihadi Attacker

Jihadi-big-ben

Information about Khalid Masood, the London attacker, have been released by British police. Masood, 52, was born in England and named Adrian Russell Ajao. Masood was the father of three, and had previous criminal convictions across 20 years.

It is believed he became a Muslim and was radicalized in prison. He traveled to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia seven years ago as a teacher, and when he returned to England, ended up in Birmingham.

Note: Birmingham, England, is a city which has embraced Muslims. It contains Sharia (Islamic law) enclaves where polygamy and radicalization occur. These areas are no-go zones for all non-Muslims, and even for police.

Masood was recently sent an image of an ISIS fighter in front of Big Ben who was dressed like the British ISIS executioner “Jihadi John.” The message was entitled “Fight Them.” It was the signal to go ahead with the attack.

  • Masood used a knife to stab and kill a policeman who was unarmed, because British “bobbies” don’t carry firearms.
  • Prime Minister Theresa May said this wasn’t an Islamic attack, but an Islamist attack–which has nothing to do with Islam, a “religion of peace.”
  • So far, ten people have been arrested in connection with the attack. However, British authorities believe Masood acted alone.
  • ISIS is claiming responsibility for the attack.
  • Masood sent a final message via WhatsApp. The Facebook-owned application that has end-to-end encryption, which means only the sender and the recipient have access to the messages.

    Muslims are the fastest growing people group in Europe, with Germany and France having the largest Muslim populations. By about 2018, Muslims will be the majority population in Birmingham, England.
    The chart above shows the falling rates of Christians versus Muslims in six English cities.

Why this Matters: There is no “good” Islam, although there are peaceful Muslims–ones who do not follow the strict tenets of their religion. And there is no way to blend the Islam of the Quran and Hadith into Western or Christian culture.

We should pray for Muslims who are in our midst and befriend them. But we must also stand steadfast against the idea that those who follow Muslim law–with its enslavement of women and barbaric criminal code–can assimilate into our culture.

Islamophobia

Canadians Consider Outlawing Anti-Islam Speech

Canada’s Parliament passed a motion on Friday that condemns Islamophobia and states its aim to reduce or eliminate racism and religious discrimination. The motion encourages legislation that would criminalize Islamophobic speech. Any words spoken against Islam are prohibited by Sharia law.

The meaning of “Islamophobia” is not defined in the motion, but it suggests any criticism of Islam would constitute hate speech, which is a crime in Canada.

A formal study of the issue is required by the motion so that appropriate laws will follow.

Why this Matters: If this sort of legislation ever gets enacted, no one would be allowed to criticize elements of the Quran. There are laws already on the books in Canada that prevent discrimination against Muslims, so this is apparently simply a “we love Islam” motion.

Pray for the truth about Islam to be exposed so that everyone will see it for what it is. Pray for opportunities to share Christ with Muslims; and for those who have Muslim families–that their light would shine before men and give glory to the One and Only God.

Matt. 5:16 – Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works,
and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
