Joining Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity this week, Pastor Robert Jeffress and Imam Mohammad Ali Elahi battled out the differences between the believers and doctrines of their respective religion.
Right from the get-go, Elahi aligned with President Obama’s left-wing talking points: “Please stop saying radical Islam. It is either radical or Islam, but can’t be both. Islamic radicalism is a big lie.”
Asked by Hannity if “radical Islam” was in fact a threat to the U.S., Elahi quickly answered and moved to his talking points.
“Yes, ISIS is evil,” said Elahi. “Islam is not evil. Evil is ignorance. Evil is injustice. Evil is prejudice. Evil is racism.” The definition of evil he gave was rather fascinating — he put the blame on the entire audience for not knowing that Islam is a religion of peace, even though it’s inherently not.
Echoing Obama’s declaration that “ISIS is not Islamic,” Elahi again rejected any claim that Islamic terrorism draws inspiration from Islamic doctrine.
“Radical Islamists are evil, because they are not Islamic,” added Elahi. The millions of Muslims who have cried “Allahu Akbar” before committing egregious acts against humanity would determine that’s a lie.
Eventually, Elahi pulled out the Ku Klux Klan card, relating them to Christians (what they won’t tell you is that the KKK was actually started by Democrats and the sole reason the Republican party came into existence was to combat slavery).
At this outrageous claim, Jeffress lit up like a blow torch.
“You can’t find one verse in the New Testament that says, ‘Kill unbelievers.’ Jesus, the founder of our faith, didn’t kill anybody. But you look in the Quran, you can find thirty-five sword verses,” said Jeffress, pastor of the First Baptist Church in Dallas, author and television and radio host.
“Muhammad was nothing but a bloodthirsty warlord who beheaded 600 Jews who would not follow him,” he added.
Damning to say the least. Islam’s attempt to form a geo-political empire that’s established in the four corners of the globe will stop at nothing. We can “carpet bomb” terrorists day and night, but they’ll just keep killing — shouldn’t we be more focused on carpet bombing an explosive and detrimental ideology?
After all, there are moderate Muslims, but there is no such thing as a moderate Quran.
