Guest: Usama Dakdok
This morning, deadly Islamic terror struck once again. This time the location was in Brussels, Belgium, where at least 31 people were killed and more than 180 injured. The location was in places where people commute, both at the Brussels airport and at the subway system during morning rush hour. It’s reported this metro station was very near the European Union headquarters. FoxNews.com reported that this attack came just four days after the arrest of Salah Abdeslam, the main remaining suspect from November’s attack in Paris and sent Brussels into full lock-down mode as police carried out multiple raids within the city. What would provoke such attack? What is the mindset of those who would commit such an atrocity?
Joining Jim to discuss this was Usama Dakdok. Usama is the founder and director of the Straightway of Grace Ministry equipping Christians to be effective witnesses of Jesus Christ to their Muslim neighbors, as well as ministering to Muslims directly. Usama is Egyptian born. He studied Islam and Islamic law since a young age. Usama has translated the Qur’an into English. He is the speaker on the program, ‘Revealing the Truth About Islam’ which airs daily on VCY America.
Usama began by coming right out and stating the what took place in Brussels is the reality of Islam and until the American people and the West name the enemy, this will continue to take place.
He went on to explain that there is no such thing as a moderate Muslim because there is no such thing as moderate Islam. Muslim people are victim #1 of the cult of Islam. He admits, there are wonderful people who claim to be Muslim who are peaceful people but this is because they know nothing about Islam and are not practicing it. In fact, in the Qur’an, Allah calls them ‘hypocrites’. These are the individuals who refuse to engage in war for the sake of Allah or those who refuse to contribute toward jihad (killing the infidel).
Is it possible the rhetoric is beginning to change? Jim quoted a terrorist analyst from Fox who said, ‘Brussels is the hub of Europe. If you want to take the war, the holy war, to the infidel in Europe, Brussels is the area to target.’ He also quoted Geert Wilders, the Dutch Party reform leader who said, ‘The cause of all this bloodshed is Islam. We need to de-Islam-ize the West. That is the only way to safeguard our lives and protect our freedom.’
Usama communicated his agreement that jihad is holy war. He pointed to the 26 verses in the Qur’an where Allah mentions the word ‘jihad’. In those verses it has only one meaning and that is to kill the infidel, to clean up the earth for the sake of Allah.
Jim also had Usama talk about President Obama’s comments on the Brussels bombing, the call from a lawmaker to allow ISIS to recruit on college campuses, some of the violent verses from the Qur’an and he also answers questions from Crosstalk listeners.
