Jihadists at the Hilton: are man-made disasters next?

A Jew hating, down with America, Muslim group is openly looking for recruits, no not in Iraq, Yemen or Afghanistan but right here in America. No you are not hearing things!

Formed and committed to the establishment of international Islamic empire the group linked to Hamas known as Hizb ut-Tahrir is holding its first public meeting for recruitment in the windy city of Chicago. The group which functioned clandestinely for years are now out in the open some are saying it is due to the ultra relaxed and highly touted PC tolerance of the Obama administration.

Hizb ut-Tahrir is not on the State Departments terror list allegedly but you have to wonder if it is on anybody's watch list and if not, why not.

On July 19, 2009 the group will endeavor to grace the Grand Ballroom of the proud Hilton in a suburb of Chicago with a conference whose theme and title is "The Fall of Capitalism and the Rise of Islam." IPT news July 17, 2009 said "According to the conference website, the program includes a question-and-answer session and two panels; one entitled "Capitalism is Doomed to Fail," the other "The Suffering under Capitalism."

The group is said to have only a few hundred adherents in America but as high as 100,000 in Indonesia and many thousands more in other Muslim countries. The real question is not how many adherents they now have but how many recruits will they gain if allowed to conduct meetings like this one.

Naturally they insist that they are meeting under the auspices of first amendment rights and the freedoms afforded to all Americans in a richly pluralistic society.

No one doubts that during the Bush years enough pressure would have been applied to such groups to make such a meeting impossible. But under the 'tip toe through the tulips' PC rhetoric of the Obama administration and now with the new call to change the word 'terrorism' with the phrase 'man made disasters' all bets are off.

Combing through the news out of Indonesia, where only a few days past both Marriott and Ritz Carlton Hotels were ripped with terrorist bombs resulting in eight deaths and over fifty injured, the term 'man made disasters' appeared nowhere in the news casts. It is a phrase that is not taking well here in America either.

Many Americans labor under the false notion that Christianity is opposed to the Muslim religion because it wants to be the preeminent religion of the world. Nothing could be further from the truth. It is the foundational principles of true Biblical based Christianity that shows what the all important difference is.

Christianity with all of its faltering steps and human errors is after all a religion of life. It is against abortion because it stands for life. It is against abuse of women and children because it regards their lives as precious in the sight of the Lord. Most of all it is firmly against both the harming and the hatred for other human beings.

Jesus Christ labored successfully to keep an adulterous woman from being stoned to death. (John 8:1f) He healed the sick, raised the dead and preached a gospel of hope and love to the rest. No death here, no hatred here.

True Christianity does not call for the downfall of capitalism, democracy or any other established system or ideology. It calls for the establishment of a kingdom that starts within an individual and exists to show love and brotherhood to a troubled and dying world.

The very tenants of Bible based Christianity are in conflict with both the Koran and any religion that believes it can be brought into acceptance through hatred and death. Nothing says it better than the following verse of scripture taken from the epistles of the Apostle John.

If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? (1Jn 4:20)
