David is a former mayor of Shiloh, Israel, in the region of Samaria, known to most as the West Bank. He is the founder and president of Shiloh Israel Children’s Fund dedicated to healing the trauma of children who have been victims of terrorist attacks as well as rebuilding the biblical heartland of Israel. He is author of the following books: Peace for Peace: Israel in the New Middle East, The Islamic Tsunami: Israel and America in the Age of Obama and his latest, Sparks from Zion.

There currently exists considerable controversy regarding Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's scheduled visit to the U.S. where he has been invited by congressional leaders to address a joint session of Congress. He is being snubbed by the White House with President Obama refusing to meet with him.

Speaker of the House John Boehner invited Netanyahu after the recent terrorist attack on France. Interestingly, John Kerry and President Obama were absent from the Paris post-attack rally.

David pointed to other political issues that exist behind this controversy as well. For example, in Israel, Netanyahu received a lot of criticism for accepting the invitation to speak to the U.S. Congress because the speaking date is just a few weeks before Israeli elections.

On the American side, criticism came primarily from the Obama administration and from some congressional democrats who criticized Boehner for making the invitation, saying that it's purely political. Boehner has defended his decision to invite Netanyahu because he feels that Obama doesn't seem to get it when it comes to topics like Islamic terrorism and the Iranian efforts to build a nuclear bomb.

Jim also had David comment on the news that President Obama isn't meeting with Netanyahu so as not to influence Israel's upcoming elections. However, multiple news sources are reporting that President Obama is allegedly seeking revenge and that his political ally is being dispatched to help unseat Netanyahu from his post.

What is the root of this animosity between these two leaders? David pointed to disagreement over how to deal with Iran's nuclear program, how to handle Islamic terrorism as well as the building of homes in Jerusalem and the West Bank.

Usama Dakdok is the founder of the Straight Way of Grace Ministry. He was born and raised in Egypt in a Christian home. While in government schools he learned about Islam just as every other student does in a Muslim country. He eventually studied for a university degree in Egypt which included the study of Sharia (Islamic law). He came to America in 1992 and with his knowledge of Islam he felt he could reach out to people in America with the gospel of Jesus Christ and began to do so via his Straight Way of Grace Ministry. For over 10 years he's been traveling across the nation with one burning passion and that's to reveal the truth about Islam.

Usama opened by noting how jihadi Muslims in America are trying to do everything they can to force the barbaric laws of Sharia on Americans. At the same time these are the same people who the media often describes as moderate Muslims.

Usama noted the inconsistency here by reminding listeners that there is no such thing as moderate Muslims. Instead, those among us that are speaking out just happen to wear suits and ties.

Vic followed up by describing how Islam has its mosques that Muslims claim are just houses of prayer. The problem is, under Islam, every one of those mosques is literally an embassy and now we're hearing the cry for Sharia.

Usama responded by explaining that the reason these Muslim men in America are demanding Sharia is because they don't want to assimilate. They reject the laws of our land, want to take over America and force us to throw away our constitution and obey the laws of Allah.

The reason this is important is because of news from indicating that recently 4 attorneys making up a tribunal in Texas began using Islamic (Sharia) law.

In addition to the possible ramifications of this tribunal, Vic also had Usama comment on the following:

--Sharia in relation to divorce, halal food, women caught in adultery and the punishment for theft.

--Will we see more tribunals in America?

--Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana has warned that Muslims coming to the U.S. could create no-go zones around the nation resulting in lone-wolf terrorist attacks. Is he being an alarmist?

--The Law Enforcement Examiner is reporting that Islamic groups like CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) are pressuring the New York Police Department to scrub their anti-terrorism training documents and demanding that the NYPD remove an educational report on Islamic terrorist groups and home-grown jihadists.

--It was reported recently that a Muslim woman filed a lawsuit accusing Dearborn Heights, Michigan, police of violating her constitutional rights by making her remove her Islamic head scarf after they arrested her for driving on a suspended license.

--Sharia and the treatment of homosexuals.

--World Net Daily is reporting that the State Department will be resettling up to 10,000 Syrian refugees (mostly Muslims) in cities around the U.S.

No one's worldview is formed in a vacuum and that's precisely why parents must be discerning and not simply permissive when it comes to music. This means that just telling our youngsters to 'turn it down' won't cut it. Parents need to know what their children are listening to and why. If what they're listening to doesn't reflect a biblical worldview, it will produce another result. Remember that ideas, even when communicated via music, have consequences. What consequences do you want your children to face?

Vic gave a number of examples demonstrating the power of music and how it can motivate people to do various things and live in certain ways. For example, he discussed Christian music personalities such as Kirk Franklin, James Cleveland, lesbian Marsha Stevens as well as the testimony of George Perdikis. George, a founding member of the Contemporary Christian group Newsboys, now defines himself as an atheist.

Crosstalk callers also communicated their experiences and provided the capstone to this program that should be of interest to all Christian parents.

At times we are confronted with questions that challenge our faith. Sometimes they are honest questions from seekers while at other times such questions are from skeptics who have no interest in the things of God and are merely trying to confound us. Is there evidence that provides adequate answers and how should we deliver such answers?

To address this issue, Jim spoke with Bodie Hodge, a writer and researcher at Answers in Genesis who is also a member of the editorial review board. He has been involved with many books and DVD's and is a regular speaker in the Creation Museum Speaker Series. This Crosstalk discussed his latest book--Confound the Critics: Answers for Attacks on Biblical Truths.

Some of the questions and concerns that Bodie addressed for listeners included:

--Can God create a rock so big that even he can't lift it?
--Is there a right time to lie?
--The God of the Old Testament killed a lot of people so how can Christians claim
that the God of the Old Testament is any different than the god of Islam?
--Does the Bible teach that women are inferior to men?
--The nature of the controversy regarding the shape of Noah's Ark.

Guest: Dr. E. Calvin Beisner

Listen: MP3| Order

Dr. E. Calvin Beisner is the founder and national spokesman of the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation. He is an interdisciplinary scholar specializing on the application of biblical worldview, theology and ethics to economics, environmental stewardship, political philosophy, public policy and apologetics. Dr. Beisner has testified as an expert witness on the theology, ethics, science and economics of climate change policy before the U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee and the Energy and Environment Subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce.

This broadcast began with Jim mentioning how the U.N. is showing scary videos about climate change disasters that could happen in 2050. Dr. Beisner noted that what's so ironic about this is that if they're showing the videos now, the disasters they're predicting have to be already happening which means they're not the result of any climate change that happens between now and 2050.

Dr. Beisner informed listeners that there has been no increase in the observed frequency or intensity of any kind of severe weather events over the period of alleged, man-made global warming. In fact, as far as hurricanes are concerned, the U.S. is in the longest period on record since the last landfall of a category 3 or higher hurricane in the Atlantic basin.

One of the highlights of the program was an audio clip from Secretary of State John Kerry who recently claimed that confronting climate change is a responsibility laid down in Scripture and that the U.S., along with Muslim nations, share a stewardship perspective as it pertains to the earth.

Dr. Beisner pointed out that Muslim countries have environmental disasters taking place far worse than anything we have going on in the Western world. This is due to the fact that Islamic societies do not generate governments that respect private property, personal liberties and that are responsive to democratic forces.

In its own materials regarding attempts to cut power plant carbon dioxide emissions by 30% by 2030, the EPA acknowledges that this would only reduce global average temperatures by two-hundredths of a degree Celsius. This effort would come at a cost of about 50 billion dollars per year while reducing total employment in the U.S. by about 250,000. In addition the reduction in carbon dioxide would reduce the earth's crop yields, an effect that would be very harmful to the poor.

Dr. Beisner also provided background to the latest Cornwall Alliance declaration for the protection of the poor, John Kerry's flawed science regarding greenhouse gasses, how current global warming philosophies lead to rising energy prices, his call to action for all Christians and much more.
