Usama Dakdok is the founder and president of the Straight Way of Grace Ministry. Usama travels throughout the United States and Canada equipping Christians to be effective witnesses of Jesus Christ to their Muslim neighbors, as well as ministering to Muslims directly. He’s translated the Qur’an into English and is author of ‘Exposing the Truth about the Qur’an’.
Last Saturday’s edition of the Venice, Florida, Gondolier Sun newspaper had a picture of Usama Dakdok on the front page. Also shown were pictures of his books with the first paragraph of the story reading as follows:
‘3 groups in the area, including one in Venice, made it on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s hate maps which shows Florida has the second most hate groups compared to the rest of the country. All hate groups have beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people, typically for their immutable characteristics, according to the SPLC.’
Usama began by noting that if what his ministry teaches is hate, then the SPLC got the message right, because Americans need to understand that what the Straight Way of Grace Ministry teaches comes directly from the words of Allah in the Qur’an, and the commands of Mohammed in the Hadith.
Aside from this, the Straight Way of Grace Ministry loves the Muslim people, even though the ministry hates Islam. For Usama, liberals don’t know the difference between the words, ‘Muslim’ and ‘Islam’.
Jim asked Usama to explain the difference. Usama responded by noting that Muslims are the people who believe in Islam. He believes that Islam is a savage cult and Muslims are victims of Islam and he refuses to victimize Muslims twice.
What’s driving this move to label groups like the Straight Way of Grace Ministry as hate groups? Usama explained by citing the following example:
Last week the newspaper called him but severely limited him by saying his response could amount to no more than 5 sentences. So Usama began by explaining that his ministry loves the Muslim people but they hate Islam. They hate Islam because Mohammed said he was commanded by Allah to engage in war against people until they say there is no god except Allah and Mohammed is his messenger. The reporter responded by saying that she couldn’t write that down. He then quoted another verse from the Qur’an where Allah ordered the Muslims to behead Christians and Jews. Again she exclaimed that she couldn’t write this. When Usama asked her why, she said it’s because this is religion. Usama responded that this hate, from the Qur’an and the Hadith, and the fact that his ministry teaches the truth about Islam, is why the Straight Way of Grace Ministry is labeled as a hate group.
Usama ended the interview by telling the reporter that one out of five women in Sweden, and many places in Europe, have already been raped by Muslim men. In spite of this, the media still defends the Muslim people who are victims of Islam. So until the American people read the Qur’an and understand the teachings of Mohammed in the Hadith, which she refused to write down in Usama’s defense, she would be a victim of Islam as well.
There’s much more to be gleaned, as Usama explained his side of the story, on this critical edition of Crosstalk.
