Posts Tagged ‘Terrorism’

I’m way behind reviewing the books I’ve read this summer so I’m posting this earlier before our usual Leisure Weekend Reading Review…because Pastors need a break sometimes from heavy theological reading!

Nitsana Darshan-Leitner.  Harpoon: Inside the Covert War Against International Terrorism’s Money Masters. New York, NY: Hachette Book Group, November 7th 2017. 304 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is a book on Israel’s fight against terror.  The preface opens up with the story of the US war on terror of going after key ISIS figures but then Segway to the fact that the US adopted some of the method of the war on Terror from Israel’s own covert war against international terrorism.  But this book isn’t primarily focused on military operations (though it has that in the book) but the side of the war that focuses on defeating terrorist networks by going after its funding.  This work is a fascinating read!

SLIMJIM and myself (EvangelZ) were talking about a post written by Joe Carter from TGC concerning this topic: FACTCHECKER: IS ISIS BEHEADING CHILDREN IN IRAQ? If you have read it, you probably have seen many comments from others. We read it and analyzed it ourselves. We would also like to hear what you have to say.  Please feel free to chime in friends.

As Christians we are all about truth. What you are saying about getting our facts right and being careful about websites that have inaccurate facts is true, Joe Carter.  We admire that motive because it is biblical.  However, one thing that is disappointing that I would like to accentuate for our readers is your criteria for evidence.  By defending your position concerning  a criteria that necessitates the need for journalists and Western news agencies to witness the systematic beheading of children in order for it to be factual is a bit of a stretch if not absurd. The criteria that you seem to propagate, I am afraid, is a western perspective that is concocted in your article.  Do the testimonies of those who are not part of major news outlets or Western news agencies, count?  I am just asking for the sake of clarity.  Have you given thought to the possibility that many journalists here would be afraid because they may lose their head if they were to report consistently the massacres such as the beheading of children in the red zone  (I think VICE has the most success in getting access without being killed)?  Moreover, it almost feels like wrestling a 500 pound Grizzly Bear in order to pressure some of these  major news outlets to post the graphic images of what is going on in Iraq and at Syria.  The world needs to see the Satanic and demonic activities done by this death cult towards Christians, while many in America seem to be more infatuated with the death of celebrities who make us laugh   Moreover, have others given the thought that many journalists in the Western news agencies have been wrong too and are not the cream of the crop when it comes to presenting  facts?  Do people understand that we must be discerning by taking into account all news outlets whether big or small and especially those who have boots in the hot zone?  In other words, let’s somewhat try to follow this motto: innocent until proven guilty.  Or in another way, give people, especially during this time, the benefit of the doubt instead of casting a cloud of doubt.   Non-professional journalistic testimonies and non-Western news agencies can hold water too. Perhaps there are many testimonies from non-professional journalists and non-Western news agencies that have witnessed atrocities in the past and in the present that were correct and are correct. Perhaps some of the readers here can assist me by doing some historical digging.

Given the fact that there is a killing spree, it does not appear to be wise nor judicious in my opinion to be nitpicking and by creating a milieu that will potentially cause the reader to cast doubt on whether Andrew White’s comments of whether the kid he baptized was cut in half by a sword or through other means.  Beloved, ISIS is cruel, brutal, and a sadistic Islamic terrorist and death cult organization that wants to take over the U.S. They will murder you, rape your women, hang your husbands in the public square and commit other malicious atrocities. If that time comes, may God provide us the grace to persevere so that the Gospel can be propagated boldy here and abroad.  ISIS/ISIL have posted up videos displaying their carnage in a myriad of forms, which I don’t think Joe would reject.   Go see it on YouTube. You don’t need a myriad of ivory tower news outlets to tell you.  I encourage many of you to view it for yourself  if you have the stomach for it. They are perhaps the new Nazis of this generation (probably worse than the Nazis when it comes to the public display of carnage) and will only get stronger overtime.  We must pray, trust in the Lord, and also take action by spreading a clear and a concrete awareness to the public so that a nation like us that have been blessed by God in many ways since our country’s beginnings can intervene in some measure to save these people.  As a result, view the carnage by ISIS/ISIL to amass evidence and facts; not for entertainment, but view them by unmasking evil and by helping spread the awareness of what is happening to our loved ones abroad.  However, I think the implications of this post by TGC may reverse and decrease that momentum of getting people off their ivory towers and couch.  On another note, I think we should lean more towards the testimony from these people such as Andrew White, Mark Arabo, and others who seem to have closer ties to the Christian genocide and the genocide of other minorities. Whether you trust their source or not, I don’t think we are in the business to be tampering with their integrity because we have no proof either that their testimonies are counterfactual.  So to be one sided in a post is to cast doubt upon the testimonies that will only prevent people from focusing on the bigger issue.  And the bigger issue is that many people are dying and need help ASAP!

This situation with the article from TGC would seem to parallel the scenario in which somebody wrote a letter to challenge  an editor of a small and diminutive news agency or other smaller news outlets near the area of the Holocaust, questioning whether there were gas chambers with shower heads that were used as instruments of death in the Auschwitz death camp.  It was true, but not according to many in the West during WWII and to the president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/4510922.stm).  The Big Elephant in the room was that the Holocaust was taking place!  It seems somewhat trivial when we consider that the bigger picture of Christian speech during this disastrous condition ought to be balanced with wisdom, truth, and edification.  With the possibility of  a vast amount of people potentially to be exterminated at Sinjar Mountain, the post by TGC does not come across as being edifying to the Christians and the other minorities at Iraq.   As much as I admire your love for truth, Brother Joe, I don’t think that this article was balanced or nuanced.  It seemed to be overly critical and lacked the combination of wisdom, truth, and edification. I say this graciously.  We have nothing against you or TGC.   But I think TGC made an extensive mistake by presenting the post in the manner it transpired. Those who are less discerning readers than yourself after reading TGC’s post will probably channel their energy and effort in being more focused on the veracity of facts and nitpicking to the smallest degree (not that I am opposed to facts in any way as long as it is balanced, truthful, and edifying to the soul and building up the cause of Christ) rather than channeling their energy towards the poor souls that have their necks resting on the sharp edges of a blade.  Grace and peace.  I hope that TGC can write another post concerning this topic in a better manner and from a better angle.

Hebrews 11:32-12:3, “And what more shall I say? For time will fail me if I tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets, 33 who by faith conquered kingdoms, performed acts of righteousness, obtained promises, shut the mouths of lions, 34 quenched the power of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, from weakness were made strong, became mighty in war, put foreign armies to flight. 35 Women received back their dead by resurrection; and others were tortured, not accepting their release, so that they might obtain a better resurrection; 36 and others experienced mockings and scourgings, yes, also chains and imprisonment.37 They were stoned, they were sawn in two, they were tempted, they were put to death with the sword; they went about in sheepskins, in goatskins, being destitute, afflicted, ill-treated 38 (men of whom the world was not worthy), wandering in deserts and mountains and caves and holes in the ground.  39 And all these, having gained approval through their faith, did not receive what was promised, 40 because God had provided something better for us, so that apart from us they would not be made perfect.

1Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart” (NASB).

Hebrews 13:3, “Remember the prisoners, as though in prison with them, and those who are ill-treated, since you yourselves also are in the body.”

Dear —————-,

I’ve thought about this for several hours before I put anything in writing. I think God’s justice as a universal principle demands that those who murder should also forfeit their life as taught in Genesis 9:6.  Genesis 9:6 is situated in the Noahic Covenant, a universal covenant (cf. Genesis 9:9-17, with the description of ‘everlasting’, etc). We all remember sunday school lessons that the rainbow is a symbol of this covenant, and unless we say that the covenant can be revoked (that is, God can destory the whole world by flood again), the requirement of Genesis 9:6 stands. Having said that, how Genesis 9:6 is implemented is important: I think we would agree that God has given the state the role of justice (Romans 13:4). In fact Romans 13:4 is unintelligible without presupposing Genesis 9:6. The Osama circumstance was fulfilled by the right institution that God ordained (I oppose to individual vigilantes, or executions practiced by the family or the church). In such a case where the wicked perish, I think it is Biblical to have a multifaceted response to the news. From the Scripture, we see that even in heaven, it is legitimate for people to cry out to God and petition for justice which spells out as judgment upon the wicked (Revelation 6:10-11). We see that even after God’s judgment (in the context, Babylon is view, cf. Rev. 18), the saints in heaven are able to rejoice with the news (Revelation 19:1-3). The rejoicing is with what God has done directly or mediated through His agents. At the same time, the idea of someone who perish should grieve us just as it grieves God. We should be sad that Osama did not repented from his ways in the final end. The two kisses together and I think that we must never forget that though God in some sense does not delight in the wicked perishing, He nevertheless is still a God of justice in His character. We must never forget that God’s judgment of sins are not arbitrary. I believe the third aspect to this multifaceted response is also one of reverential fear…we ourselves deserve punishment for our own sins, but only mercy and grace has saved us from our sins. Hope this makes some sense, it’s 1 in the morning and I”m trying to finish a paper. Again, I think a multifacted response might be biblical.
