Crosstalk: June 14, 2018
Shahram Hadian is a former Muslim from Iran who came to the states in 1978 and committed his life to Jesus Christ. Shahram has begun the TIL Project, the Truth in Love Project, which exposes the true goal of Islam and the threat of Sharia in America. He's served as a pastor, a police officer, and a former candidate for Governor in Washington State.
What's the tie between Islam and violence, Islam and killings, when we're continually told it's a religion of peace and that jihad is just a personal, internal struggle?
According to Shahram, jihad is the connection. Part of the problem is that terms aren't being defined as Islam defines them. Sharia law defines jihad as warfare against non-Muslims and to establish the religion of Islam. This means that when you see the outward, or the lesser jihad (because they believe it will end), that jihad is to wage war against non-Muslims.
What's the purpose of that war? It's to either convert non-Muslims, make them second-class citizens, or fight them to the death.
As Islam rises, it's no accident or coincidence. When you look at some of the numbers, Shahram believes we could potentially be looking at the greatest persecution of Christians since the beginning of the Christian church.
Jim then referenced the story of a Muslim man who allegedly killed his own 4 year old daughter as a sacrificial offering to Allah during Ramadan. The killing was allegedly done by cutting her throat.
In response, Shahram noted that some would say that behavior is not reflective of Islam. Shahram disagreed. He believes Islam is an evil, demonic ideology. It promotes death. The highest aspiration of Muslims is to become a martyr for the sake of Allah in order to gain paradise/heaven. He thinks the fact that the alleged killer also referenced the Devil/Satan shows that we're witnessing the true spirit that's behind Islam. This shows how they're sacrificing to their false god.
Jim then referenced Pew Research Center statistics from January that estimates there were about 3.5 million Muslims living in the U.S. in 2017 making up about 1.1% of the total population.
Shahram disagrees with those estimates. He believes in going by Muslim demographics and numbers. Even Muslim Brotherhood sources that he's seen claim that their numbers are around 7-8 million. Actually, Shahram thinks even that figure is low and believes it to be more like 9 million. He cited as proof the burgeoning enclaves in places like Minnesota and Michigan.
What's the cause? One is immigration. Hijrah is part of the Muslim ideology of migration in large numbers to areas where enclaves are then established. That's why over 1,000 no-go zones exist in France while other such zones also exist in Great Britain, Sweden and Germany.
The second cause is jihad wilada (jihad of the womb). So if someone's a devout Muslim and they can't wage jihad in battle or with their money, they can wage it by the womb. This requires a Muslim husband and wife to have a lot of children. This is why the average Muslim birth rate in Europe is about 5 children per family compared with the rest of the continent where it's about 1.45 children per family.
