It turns out that Western liberal democracies can be subverted without firing a shot.
Prince Metternich, and tell Carl Schmitt the news!
Last month, students at Friendswood Junior High in Houston were required to attend an "Islamic Awareness" presentation during class time allotted for physical education.
Her source for
this story is Bob Unruh at WND; his
article conforms to that site's standard practice in that it relies heavily on
hearsay and doesn't mention the date on which the event took place (WND
generally avoids giving dates for the events it describes, probably because
they can then be recycled in later articles without losing any immediacy).
According to students, they were taught that "there is one God, his name is Allah" and that "Adam, Noah and Jesus are prophets." Students were also taught about the Five Pillars of Islam and how to pray five times a day and wear Islamic religious garb.
Now, I wasn't
there, but I'm willing to bet that these children weren't actually taught that
"there is one God, his name is Allah." Instead, they were told that
this is what Muslims believe, which is not exactly a secret. And they
probably weren't taught how to dress like Muslims, but to comprehend why some
Muslims dress the way they do. Still, it sounds much scarier when you use
language that blurs the distinction between awareness and advocacy, don't you
Violence created by thirst for petroleum, at least at this point, looks to be a likely catalyst that will force all nations to the final battle in the Middle East. Armageddon is a war that likely begins with the galloping forth of the second rider on the red horse of war (Rev. 6:4). It culminates with the return of Jesus Christ in the clouds of glory to the one place on earth with the largest pools of oil (Rev. 19:11).
