Today on PTIB it's a Middle East News Update with Jimmy DeYoung and Dave Dolan talking about this key region of the world. Jimmy and Dave will discuss the Iran military chief who says the Iranian missile program is to threaten Iran's enemies, and Israel is one of their enemies; the Israeli air force is keeping its eye on Iran, in light of the Iranian nuclear deal; Jordan is at a boiling point as Syrian refugees overflow the nation of Jordan; and 10,000 French Jews will immigrate to Israel in 2016.

Yesterday Crosstalk looked at the effect of Islamization in Europe. From that perspective it's easy for some in the U.S. to claim there's nothing for us to be concerned about because the problem is on the other side of the Atlantic. Besides, we have a constitutional republic that would never allow for Shariah law. Those excuses collapse under the simple reminder of incidents like 9-11, what occurred in Little Rock, Arkansas, Fort Hood, the Boston Marathon bombing, Chattanooga, Tennessee, and the San Bernardino incident. For discussion regarding Islamization in our nation, Jim welcomed back Soeren Kern. Soeren is a distinguished senior fellow of the Gatestone Institute, a non-partisan, not-for-profit international policy council and think tank dedicated to educating the public about the institutions of democracy and the rule of law, human rights, a free and strong economy, a military capable of ensuring peace at home and in the free world, energy independence and insuring the public stay informed of threats to our individual liberty, sovereignty and free speech. Soeren is also a senior analyst for Transatlantic Relations at the Strategic Studies Group. He specializes in European politics as well as U.S. and European defense and security related issues. He is a regular commentator about European politics and transatlantic relations. He is a dual citizen of the United States and Germany. There are those like President Obama who claim that Islam has always been part of America's heritage. Soeren believes that such statements are an attempt by political elites across the Western world to 'mainstream' Islam and make it appear that there's nothing inherently unique to Islam compared to any other religious group. However, the earliest mosque in America was founded in North Dakota in 1929 making Islam's history in our nation a very short one. The population of Muslims in the U.S. is said to be anywhere from 2.5 to 5 million depending upon the source. What's more important to Soeren is where this is going. He cited the Pew Research Foundation that recently published a story about the rise of Islam around the world and it indicated that Islam would be the second largest religion in the U.S. by 2050. This means there would be more Muslims than Jews in America. The driving force for the advancement of Islam in the U.S. began with Muslims who were college educated. In the last 10-15 years we've seen a migration of Muslims from a lower socio-economic level. Driving this latter fact is the situation in the Middle East but there's also another factor. Within Islam is the concept of Hijra. That involves jihad through migration which was expressed by Mohammed as the duty of every Muslim. Soeren also noted that the Islamic impact in our education system is part of the broader multi-culturalism movement. This movement believes all cultures are equal therefore we are told we need to understand Islam and one of the ways to do that is to help the younger generations accept Islam as a normal feature of American society. As the program continues, Soeren discussed the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), House Resolution 569 that attempts to shut down any criticism of Islam, Islam's goal for our judicial system, the Syrian refugees coming to America, the phenomenon of 'Chrislam', ISIS training camps in the U.S. and much more.

Christians are torn. Either abandon technology we can’t live without and become isolated from the culture, or risk exposure to violence and sexual images while trying to engage the world we live in. God speaks to us through 2 Corinthians 6.

Today on PTIB Jimmy DeYoung speaks with Ken Timmerman, who has for all of us the details behind the headlines from across the world. Jimmy and Ken will discuss the fact that Russia suspects that Turkey is preparing to invade Syria; the United States is weighing its options as the IS presence soars in Libya; Saudi Arabia is ready to send troops into Syria; Iraq is building a security wall around Baghdad; and Ken reflects on the Presidential Campaign that is in full swing.

Islam is advancing rapidly in Europe as well as here in the United States. As a result there's been an increase in crime and religious conflict that's been escalating at alarming proportions. Government organizations as well as the media often cover these incidents up because they claim such individuals merely have a distorted view of Islam. After all, to them, Islam is a religion of peace. This shows that leaders in Europe as well as the U.S. continue to drink at the well of complacency on this topic therefore little is accomplished in terms of slowing much less halting the advance of Islam. Joining Jim to discuss this disturbing trend was Soeren Kern. Soren is a distinguished senior fellow of the Gatestone Institute, a non-partisan, not-for-profit international policy council and think tank dedicated to educating the public about the institutions of democracy and the rule of law, human rights, a free and strong economy, a military capable of ensuring peace at home and in the free world, energy independence and insuring the public stay informed of threats to our individual liberty, sovereignty and free speech. Soeren is also a senior analyst for Transatlantic Relations at the Strategic Studies Group. He specializes in European politics as well as U.S. and European defense and security related issues. He is a regular commentator about European politics and transatlantic relations. He is a dual citizen of the United States and Germany. About 10 years ago a Roman Catholic bishop in the Netherlands began calling on European Christians to begin calling God, 'Allah' as a way to build bridges with Muslims. As Soeren began doing more research, he discovered that God and Allah are two completely different entities. From there he wrote an article about it. It went viral and he began getting requests to do more research and writing about Islam. Soeren believes there's two ways to view Islam from a Christian point of view. The whole purpose of Islam is to deny the divinity of Jesus Christ yet from a geopolitical perspective it's dedicated to world conquest and placing the planet under the submission of Allah. Soeren described how after World War II an entire generation of males was wiped out. This meant there weren't enough males to run the factories. As a result, Germany, the Netherlands and France began importing migrant labor. Germany began importing their labor force from Turkey. The understanding was that eventually these individuals would return to their home nations but they stayed. So over the last 40 to 50 years, Soeren described this situation as being in 'slow motion' but in the last 10 to 15 years the pace has 'snowballed' into a large political and social problem for almost every nation in Europe. As this program moved along, it took a specific look at Islam in France, Germany and Britain, how these nations are one generation ahead of the U.S. in terms of islamization and why European secular lawmakers and leaders are letting this happen. Tomorrow, Jim and Soeren will take a look at how Islam has been affecting the United States.

Many believers are bound in moral sins, sins made easy by anonymous internet access to pornography. Only the truth of God’s Word will convince us to make right choices rather than follow a slippery slope into sexual sin.

Twenty Things You Will Never Hear In Church (Part 2): Tuesday Guy is in the studio today with Pastor Mike. Listen in as they talk about Twenty Things You Will Never Hear In Church.

Topic: Hear the audio of the father of Ted Cruz, Rafael Cruz, speaking at the Ministers Conference of Word of Faith false teacher, Kenneth Copeland. Listen as Rafael speaks of how the wife of Ted Cruz got a word from God on his running for office. So the promotion of mysticism has now made it into the presidential race. At one time political candidates stayed far away from folks like Copeland, but now even presidential candidates and their campaigns, such as Cruz, embrace false teachers like Mike Bickle and Kenneth Copeland. What does this tell us and what does it say about what is to come? Topic: At one time you could judge a Southern Baptist church, an Evangelical Free Church, or a Word of Faith church by their name. You would know what their theology was just by the name of the church or their denomination. Yet today, many Southern Baptist Churches, Evangelical Free Churches and Word of Faith churches are actually teaching much of the same theology. Brannon gives specific examples that prove this point. What does this tell us about apostasy, the emerging one-world spirituality and the coming one-world religion? Topic: We take your calls.

Perhaps for some of us, the recent terrorist threats pose no concern at all, but we are more prone to worry about other things that pertain to our daily life. Things like: our health or the health of our family; financial stress; the purity of our children and grandchildren; who we are going to marry; what we will do if our spouse dies before we do; the aging process. These are just some of the things that might be worry factors for us. However, for the life of the kingdom citizen there should be absolutely no cause for worry whatsoever! You might think that is an extreme statement, but Jesus would differ with you as He commands His children to not worry whatsoever! This lesson is essential for God’s children as many are ensnared with sinful worry!

With silly season in full swing, it is important to examine our past and determine if our country is walking down a familiar path today. In this week’s boralogue, John looks back to the stock market crash in 1929 and our government’s unhelpful reaction to it. What lessons can we learn from this? More importantly, with politicians offering free goodies and decrying capitalism, are we ready to listen? We’re taking a whirlwind tour of the globe this week beginning in Sweden, where we invite Nima Gholam Ali Pour (www.situationmalmo.nu), Vice Chairman of Perspectives on Israel, to analyze the Palestinian-friendly Kairos document and how it and the Swedish media are fomenting a growing anti-Israel movement in that country. Next we travel to the Orient with columnist and East Asia expert Gordon Chang (www.gordonchang.com) who discusses not only China’s crumbling economy and military expansion but also the dangers of North Korean missile testing. Could the United States be vulnerable? John takes some time to discuss U.S. interest rates and the markets, Russia’s involvement with Ukraine and Syria, and the persecution of Christians by ISIS-controlled countries in the Middle East. We end our global tour back in Europe where David Goldman (www.reorientgroup.com), Managing Director at Reorient Group, studies Germany’s identity crisis in the wake of refugee violence and shows that their reaction to the emergency is related to their past. Could an identity crisis also be at the heart of Islam in the modern world, influencing violent incidents? John’s quote of the week: “Knowing who you are is important to functioning in the world especially in terms of a worldview. When you forget who you are – as a country, as a person, as an organization – then you typically get into trouble when you encounter other groups that don’t have that problem.” As always, join us online for our Section 6 intelligence briefing featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.
