Christmas Day Terrorist Plot Exposes Need for Change in U.S. Policy

Bill WilsonBy Bill Wilson

The UK Sun is reporting that there are at least five groups of five British-born terrorists that have been training in Yemen similar to the recent terrorist who tried to blow up a Christmas day Northwest airlines flight using explosives in his underwear. This report indicates that the al Qaeda cells in Britain are alive and well and are patiently training for multiple attacks. The article also claimed that these 25 terrorists were educated at universities, studying engineering and computer science. But the most interesting revelation is that the Sun reports these terrorists were "radicalized" in British mosques.

This is a clear indication that mosques, under the cover of religious freedom in nations that are traditionally comprised of Christians, are being used as centers teaching radical Islamic views and encouraging terrorism.

It is a basic tenet of the Christian faith that man has free will to choose Christ as his personal savior. Derived from that principle is freedom of religion. Christians are called to evangelize, but Christianity does not force its belief system upon others. They are free to choose. Galatians 5:1 says,

"Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage."
Freedom to choose, freedom from sin, freedom to worship are hallmarks of Christianity.

This is not lost on the false religion of Islam. In fact, Islam is using the religious freedom clause in free societies to colonize them and to spread within them its network of tyranny and terror. The Muslim Brotherhood put forth a strategy document in May 1991 for settlement of North America. The document states that
"In order for Islam and its Movement to become "a part of the homeland" in which it lives...the Movement must plan and struggle to obtain "the keys" and the tools of this process in carrying out this grand mission as a "Civilization Jihadist" responsibility which lies on the shoulders of Muslims and - on top of them - the Muslim Brotherhood in this country."
The plan later identifies building Islamic Centers in every city as a means to put words into action. Islamic centers, according to the plan, are the center of all activity in a community from sports to battalion to education to political resolution. The mosque would serve as the holy motivator. This strategy is playing out in both the UK and America. For example, Investors Business Daily reported December 17 the results of an investigative story entitled "The Pentagon: Muslim Spies Setting Muslim Policy." The story documents extremist Muslims in high level Pentagon positions who are undermining military policy. The US must identify Islam as a political system rather than a religion otherwise there will be dire consequences.
