The the birth of Islam by its founder Mohammad and for 1,200 year, Islam grew to reign over the civilized world around the Mediterranean. Then about 300 years ago through concern of the Kuffars (Infidels and unbelievers) history documents an Islamic decline starting with the Crusades. Islam opened the door to further humiliation when some leaders sided with the Germany dictator during world war 2. In 1948 there occurred a humiliation from non-Muslims with the reintroduction of a Jewish state.
Islam's historic trials and tribulations with Jews, and its relationship with non-believers, help illustrate an Islamic world view - all through the eyes of Muslims. It is imperative for us to understand Islam's past and how it views itself so that we can understand what Islam desires for the future.
Today President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his Iranian strategic agenda for acquiring weapons of mass destruction to eliminate Israel comes clearly into focus and should not be ignored.
At the direction of Ahmadinejad, radicalized Islamists are preparing for a fateful coming war for fundamentalist inspired Islam - and Israel is the number one target and obstacle in the path of Islamic revival. Only with the return of Jews to their historic status as Dhimmi or Tributaries, tolerated and protected within fundamentalist inspired Islamic society, can fundamentalist inspired Islamic revival succeed - resulting in Islamic Peace, in the Middle East.
It is strangely Biblically prophetic that this appears to be where we are heading. It would seem Israel has no choice but to make peace in order to survive - yet this peace based on fundamentalist inspired Islamic justice - is misunderstood by Israel and many in the West.
Stand by for heavy rolls my friend. I am not sure it will get better before it gets much worse.
