An umbrella organization in Pakistan that includes more that two dozen fundamentalist Islamic groups plans to formally ask the United Nations to enact a global law against blasphemy that would include the death penalty for anyone who blasphemes the Prophet Muhammad. Yes, unfortunately this is actually true. The formal name of the umbrella organization is Jama’at-ud-Dawa (JuD) and according to IndianExpress.com, the leadership of the JuD has decided to contact the UN and ask them to implement a global law “against blasphemy of prophets and awarding death penalty to violators.”
So what types of things would be considered blasphemy?
Well, according to Wikipedia, the following are just some of the things that are considered blasphemy in Islam….
-to speak ill of Allah.
-to find fault with Prophet Muhammad.
-to slight any prophet who is mentioned in the Quran, any member of Prophet Muhammad’s family, or any cleric.
-to speculate about how Prophet Muhammad would behave if he were alive.
-to draw a picture to represent Prophet Muhammad or any other prophet, or to make a film which features a prophet.
-to write Prophet Muhammad’s name on the walls of a toilet.
-to name a teddy bear Muhammad.
-to state facts such as: Prophet Muhammad’s parents were not Muslims.
So is there any chance that the UN will grant their request?
Well, there are over 40 Islamic countries in the UN, but there is no chance at all that the other members of the United Nations are going to go for something like this.
But what this does demonstrate is the dangerous mindset of radical Islamic organizations around the globe. They are determined to impose their radical agenda on us however they can.
In this case, these radical Muslims in Pakistan are trying to make it sound like it is all about their hurt feelings….
The following is an official statement from the JuD that followed the meeting where it was decided to go to the UN on this issue….
“The ambassadors of Muslim and non-Muslim states will be told that blasphemy against prophets not only hurts the feelings of one religion but also sows a seed of hatred against the people of other religions.”
So because someone hurt their feelings that person deserves the death penalty?
No, this is not about hurt feelings.
This is about the desire to use force and violence to advance the cause of radical Islam.
But we have seen this pattern repeated over and over for centuries.
The followers of radical Islam are just not pulling this stuff out of thin air. They are getting it right out of the Quran. In Sura 9:29-31 it says the following….
“Fight those who believe not in God nor the last day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by God and His Apostle, nor acknowledge the religion of truth, (even if they are) of the people of the Book, until they pay the jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”
The reality is that the vast majority of radical Muslims have no problem using violence to get their way. Just check out a few examples of violence commited by radical Muslims recently all over the globe….
*A Christian man in Pakistan’s Punjab province was literally fighting for his life after radical Muslim leaders, backed by police, burned him alive for refusing to convert to Islam while his wife was raped by police officers.
*A horde of radical Muslims recently stormed into a central Nigerian town and slaughtered about 500 Christian villagers – most of which were women and children.
*A World Vision mission office in Pakistan was recently assaulted by Islamic gunmen, leaving at least five of the staff members dead.
*In broad daylight and in full view of witnesses, a group of 4 Islamic radicals in the southern Egyptian city of Attaleen fired 31 bullets into the head of a Coptic Christian before beheading him. The dead body was then dragged through the streets accompanied by shouts of victory. Later, an Egyptian court acquitted the four Muslim men accused of committing the crime.
*Two Islamic suicide bombers in Lahore, Pakistan killed at least 43 people and injured at least 100 others in a high-security area with a dense military presence.
The truth is that wherever radical Islam encounters any other kind of culture all over the world there is violence.
But it is not going to just be Islam that becomes very violent in the last days.
In Matthew 24:9, Yahshua (Jesus) told us that the entire world will hate Christians and will want to kill them in the last days….
Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me.
So the truth is that hate is going to continue to grow and massive persecution of Christians is coming.
The world is rapidly changing, and we are all going to have to get much closer to God in order to be able to handle the days that are ahead.
