Implications Coming From The New London Mayor[caption id="attachment_59646" align="alignleft" width="300"] Great Book, Easy to Read and You Will Understand and Know How to Refute Islam in a factual and common sense manner.[/caption] Let’s start by looking at the new Mayor of London. This is really big news. London is one of the largest and most influential cities in the world, and the fact that they just elected their first Muslim mayor is being, for the most part, ignored by the main-stream news organizations. Sadiq Khan, the new Muslim mayor of London, is not without a history. He is a lawyer, and he has defended some pretty bad Islamic terrorists. He has made some very troubling statements about the treatment of Muslims in Europe and America. He has issued a veiled threat concerning the reaction of Muslims if Donald Trump is elected President of the United States. This is based upon Trump’s statement that we should temporarily ban Muslims from the US until we can properly vet them. With the things that are happening in the world, this idea is gaining more support with the American people. Some how the left misses the idea that allowing Muslim refugees into America without proper screening is a threat to our security. We know that ISIS has said they will infiltrate the refugees, and there is evidence that they already have done so in Europe. Sadiq Khan is part of the Labor Party in the UK. The UK has two major parties, the Conservative Party and the Labor Party. The Conservative Party is similar to the Republican Party in America, and the Labor Party is similar to the Democrat Party. Isn’t it amazing that here in America an openly socialist candidate is doing so well within the Democrat Party? This proves what I have been saying for years. The Democrat party is no longer democratic, it is a socialist party. Even Hilary Clinton couldn’t tell us what the difference between a Democrat and a socialist is when she was asked. Before we get into Sadiq Khan’s background I want to mention the rise of a Muslim political party within the United States. It is called the US Counsel of Muslim Organizations. This is contrary to the argument put forth by the defenders of Islam. They want us to believe that Islam is just a religion without political aspiration. To show the importance of this issue let me mention the Sharia Law book, “The Reliance of the Traveller.” The first 320 pages of this book deal with the religion of Islam. The next 424 pages deal with the government of Islam. Muhammad was not just building a religion, he was building a kingdom. Islam has laws for everything you can think of. It controls every aspect of your life, it even tells you how to go to the bathroom. The headquarters for the Sharia Law Courts in England is Nuneaton, a town where I lived much of my life. They have what is called the Hijaz Center,, Hijza is the old name for a part of Saudi Arabia that includes Mecca and Medina. The Hijaz centers, there are now several of them, are where they train men to be lawyers, bankers, and teachers. They also have a political science department. They are teaching Muslims to get into the legal, financial, education, and political systems. The facility in Nuneaton and house 600 students, and I don’t think this is the largest of the centers. After the fall of the Ottoman Empire, Turkey became a secular Muslim state, which is a contradiction of terms. Today we see Sharia law being promoted more and more in Turkey because they now have Islamists, those supporting Sharia, elected into high offices withing the government. This even includes the Prime Minister. We see the same thing happening in the West, including America. The new mayor of London came to office promising to fight extremism among the terrorists. When we use these terms we mean the Islamic terrorists. When a Muslim uses them they mean the enemies of Islam, especially Christians and Jews. If you listen to the leftists in America, including President Obama, you will see that they agree with the Muslim interpretation. They will not call the terrorists Islamic, they call those who stand for our constitutional rights like freedom of religion and the right to keep and bear arms, as extremists and terrorists. The London mayor has said that Donald Trump is ignorant concerning Islam. You would think that the mayor of London would be focused on London, but instead he is focused on the American election. He said: …“Donald Trump’s ignorant view of Islam could make both of our countries less safe – it risks alienating mainstream Muslims around the world and plays into the hands of extremists,” he said. “Donald Trump and those around him think that Western liberal values are incompatible with mainstream Islam – London has proved him wrong.” He is threatening that there will be problems coming from Muslims if we don’t let Muslims into America without proper vetting. This reminds me of the Imam who was heading up the 9/11 mosque. He said that if we didn’t let them build this mosque they couldn’t guarantee our safety. Statements like this sound like threats to me. The first question is, Why is he worrying about America? And the second is, What is his connection to the terrorists? This new mayor has had ties to Muslim extremists. He defended the 9/11 killer Zacarias Moussaoui, and called moderate Muslims “Uncle Toms.” Furthermore, Khan was defending known Islamic extremist Azzam Tamimi when Tamimi told a crowd that publishing cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad would “cause the world to tremble” and predicted “Fire…throughout the world if they don’t stop,” Khan dismissed the threats as “flowery language.” Do you remember when a Muslim tried to decapitate a soldier in daylight on the streets of London? Kahn said that this was a fabrication and that it never happened. He said this in spite of the fact that it was documented by picture evidence. He shares speaking platforms with anti-Israeli groups. He is involved with the Islam Channel and the Unity Counsel, which are anti-Israel. In a recent video he called moderate Muslims “uncle Tom’s.” What does in mean to call someone an uncle Tom? This comes from what the black culture in America called black people who they thought were acting “too white.” It is to say that they are not black enough because they are assimilating into white culture. What he is saying is that moderate Muslims are acting too British. He is telling them that they should start acting like Muslims and not assimilate into the British culture. This shows how much the Muslims in Europe believe they have the upper hand. I think we are going to see some interesting things develop in the near future.

Turkey And The EUA number of years ago Turkey applied for membership in the European Union. They have been a provisional member for about 12 years. About 2 years ago Turkey was supposed to become a full fledged member. This is a very critical issue because Turkey has 68 million Muslims. There are about 70 million Muslims in Europe right now. Had Turkey become a full member it would have nearly doubled the Muslim population in the EU. Also, Turkey would have become the number 3 country in the EU because of its economic strength, its population, and its military. They did not become a full member, but there are other deals on the table. This coming June, that is next month, Turkey is supposed to have open borders with the rest of the EU. This means that if you have a Turkish passport you do not need a visa to move into an EU country. They would then be residents in one of these countries. I was talking with a member of the Israeli Parliament about 5 years ago and I asked him about the Israeli concerns when Turkey joins the EU. He said their biggest concern is immigration. Turkey has open immigration with most of the Middle Eastern countries and this would make them a bridge between the Islamic countries and Europe. Not only will Turkey have open borders with Europe, they will receive an influx of 3 billion Euros at the same time. We already have a problem with ISIS issuing Syrian passports to anyone who wants one. This is how they are infiltrating the refugee population. The refugees are supposed to be Syrians, but they really come from just about anywhere. It is estimated that about 2 million Muslims will move into Europe in the first year. By the end of the second year they estimate that between 5 and 10 million Muslims will have move into European countries. Turkey is the headquarters of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). This is the largest voting block in the United Nations. It is composed of 56 Muslim member states and Palestine, which is not considered a state at this time. Turkey has been influencing politics and political leaders here in the US and around the world. There is another development that could have a great effect on the future of the EU. Great Britain is going to be voting on leaving the EU. On June 23rd, if Britain votes to leave the EU, and it looks like they might, the EU is finished. The EU is really run by three countries, England, France, and Germany. If any of these three countries pulls out, the EU cannot survive. On February 19th they had an emergency meeting at the EU with David Cameron, the British Prime Minister, and Cameron said that he was getting a lot of pressure from his citizens. They don’t want to be a part of the EU any more. He told them that if they were going to have any hope that England would stay in, they would have to change some things. They will have to give England more privileges. England wants more benefits and less responsibility. Cameron asked for the moon, and they gave it to him. In spite of this, it still seems that the British people want out. I don’t think they trust the Europeans. The EU could be finished by the end of the year. Suppose that England does stay in the EU. This would mean that the Germans and the French would have to carry more of the load. How long do you think it will take them to demand the same privileges? It looks like no matter what happens, the EU will fall apart. When this happens the European countries won’t have enough money to provide for their own. What effect will this have on the refugees? You can be sure that things will get ugly. If the EU does fall apart, I predict a lot of bloodshed on the streets. There are some European countries that seem to have some common sense. A few of them are refusing to take more of the refugees. The EU is threatening these countries with fines if they don’t continue to take them in. Albania, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Sweden, and Norway are some of the countries refusing to take more refugees. Norway is actually talking about deporting them because of all of the sexual assaults on their women. I think there is a plan by the globalists to cause a collapse of Europe. Many in Europe are afraid that there may soon be a civil war. They fear a battle from the true Europeans and the immigrants when the money runs out. The problem for the native Europeans is that they are disarmed. How are they going to defend their nation?
What Does The Bible Say About Turkey?Ezekiel 38 and 39 speak of two specific battles. I know there is disagreement as to whether these are two battles or just one, but what I want to focus on is that we don’t know the exact timing, but we do know the nations that are named. Ezekiel 38 gives the names of nine nations, Gog, Magog, Meshech, Tubal, Persia, Ethiopia, Libya, Gomer, and Togarmah, that surround Israel. With the exception of one of them, which is thought to be Russia, are Muslim countries. Turkey is actually includes four of these, Mesheck, Tubal, Gomer, and Togarmah. It is significant that four of the nine nations named are modern day Turkey. This is especially true when you realize that Turkey is the seat of the OIC. Imagine the role these nations will play if Turkey becomes part of the EU. According to the Bible, Turkey will clearly play an important role in end-time prophecy. Turkey has developed a better relationship with Russia. They are starting to dialog with Iran. These things should greatly concern us. We are witnessing the pieces coming together for the fulfillment of end-time Bible prophecy. The Muslim world is waiting for their Mahdi (their messiah) to usher Islam in as the world government and religion. The rise of Turkey, and the impending collapse of Europe seem to be leading up to the end-times. Europe, which has twice resisted Islam, is about to fall to it. The first two times were by the sword, but this time it may happen without the sword. I am reminded that Gaddafi said that he saw signs that Allah would grand Islam victory in Europe without swords, guns, or conquest. We see this happening with the increase of Muslims in Europe.

This Psalm tells us of the nations that will conspire against Israel in the last days. This can only find fulfillment today because Israel was not a nation for most of the last 2,500 years. The nations in this Psalm are all Muslim countries. Here is the Psalm in its entirety: (1) Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. (2) For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. (3) They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. (4) They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. (5) For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee: (6) The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes; (7) Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; (8) Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah. (9) Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison: (10) Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth. (11) Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna: (12) Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession. (13) O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before the wind. (14) As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire; (15) So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them afraid with thy storm. (16) Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O LORD. (17) Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish: (18) That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth. (Psalms 83:1-18) I want to focus upon the reference to Assur (Assyria). We often hear that the Anti-Christ cannot be Islamic because we believe he will come out of Europe. We have shown on this program that Islam is an antichrist spirit and the Bible indicates the the Antichrist could be an Assyrian. We need to understand that Assyria was much more than modern Syria. In included parts of what is now Turkey and Iraq. Isn’t it interesting that this is where the Islamic State (ISIS) is located. With Turkey on the rise, and the fact that several of the nations mentioned in end-times prophecy are, either in part, or in whole, included in modern day Turkey, we can see that Turkey is a nation to watch. It is also remarkable that we are seeing all of the nations mentioned come into prominence in our day. One important point is that the common enemy of these nations is Israel. The fact that Turkey is being brought into the EU, and the influx of Muslims into Europe through this and the refugee program, is resulting in the Muslim takeover of Europe. If the Antichrist does come out of Islam, Turkey could be the seat of his rise to power.
Catholic InvolvementIt may surprise you to find out how many similarities there are between Islam and the Catholic Church. We see this in little things like their prayer beads, but we also see it in what they believe and practice. Islam venerates Mary almost as much as the Catholic Church does. There is a Catholic shrine in Portugal called Fatima. Fatima was the name of Muhammad’s daughter, and this shrine has a statue of Mary. It is called the Shrine of Fatima because a Muslim girl named Fatima converted to Catholicism and later supposedly had a vision at this site. It may surprise you to know that there are as many, if not more, Muslims who come to worship at this shrine as there are Catholics. Over the last 15 years there has been a huge development between the Catholic Church and Islam. In May, 2001, Pope John Paul was the first pope, to the best of my knowledge, to visit an Islamic mosque. The mosque he visited is interesting. It was the Amadiyya Mosque in Damascus. At the time of Muhammad, Syria was a very strong Christian nation. Under the second caliph, Islam brought the Christians of Syria into submission in Damascus. They made Damascus the seat of the Islamic caliphate. The same thing happened in Turkey when Constantinople became Istanbul. At that time they made one of the most beautiful cathedrals in the world an Islamic mosque. A couple of years ago the present pope, Pope Francis, visited this mosque in Turkey. Just a few weeks ago he went back and did his prayers in a fashion similar to what the Muslims do. He didn’t pray toward Jerusalem or Rome, he prayed toward Mecca. This indicates submission to the god of Islam, Allah. It is important to know that Pope Francis has promoted the idea that the Qur’an and the Bible have common ground and the idea of a one-world unity. I think we are seeing a movement toward one-world religion. We are seeing Turkey with a critical role in these last days. I believe that the Bible clearly supports this and we are seeing it fulfilled before our very eyes. Europe is in trouble, and if the EU collapses the Muslims will not be going home. They will stay and take over everything.
Sura 9Chapter (sura) 9 of the Qur’an is the last chapter to be written. It is placed as chapter 9 because it is one of the larger chapters, and the Qur’an is organized largest to smallest. Muhammad was dying when he gave this chapter. I call it the financial solution, not a theological solution for the survival of Islam. By this time they had robbed all the money form the tribes they had conquered. The only ones left to go after are the Christians. In this chapter Muhammad declares Christians to be polytheists. He said they worshiped three Gods, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. He instructed them to: Fight them who believe not, even if they be the people of the book, until they pay Jizya with willing submission and feel themselves subdued. The Pact of Umar set minimums and maximums on what they could take through the Jizya. The maximum was 50% of what you own and what you earn. This is exactly what ISIS is doing today. When they find a Christian home, they paint the Arabic letter N, which stands for the Nazarene, on the house. They give them three choices; they can become Muslims, they can die, or they can pay the Jizya and live in submission to Islam. It is this attitude that allows them to come into Europe and live off the backs of the non-Muslims. When they live off the welfare system, they see it as living off the Jizya. The Europeans, being socialists, gladly accommodate them with a house and everything they need to live. Not only is it living off the non-believers, it is also cultural jihad. They are working to advance Islam through cultural means. They are following the Islamic strategy of migration. They move into an area they want to take over, in this case Europe, and then increase their numbers until the can control it. Next week we are going to talk about Germany. We will have a special guest on our broadcast. We intend to have Heidie Moon. She is known as the “brave German woman.” She has an amazing story. She was an atheist who became a Christian. She has stood for her nation against the Islamic invasion. She will be speaking in Shahram’s church in Spokane, WA next week. She will be giving us an update on what is going on in Germany, and what is going on with the refugees. She will also be talking about what is happening to the true Christians in Germany. She will be giving a warning to Americans and especially American Christians. You won’t want to miss what we will be learning next week. We had better stand now or it will be too late.
If you would like to schedule a meeting with Tom you can call him at 1-800-616-0082. No church is too big or too small.
