Giuliani totally unleashes on Obama after National Prayer Breakfast

Former New York City Mayor, Rudy Giuliani didn’t hold back about his thoughts on President Obama’s comparison of Christianity with the barbaric terrorism of ISIS during the annual National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday.

Obama brought up violence by Christians in the Crusades to somehow justify the brutality brought on by ISIS just days after a Jordanian pilot was burned alive for the world to see.

Giuliani sat down with Fox News’ host, Bill Hemmer on “America’s Newsroom” and let the president have it.

“He’s as weak a historian as he is a president, and as weak a theologian,” said Giuliani.

Giuliani went into a brief, yet impressive history lesson about the Crusades.

Then Hemmer pressed for a comparison between Christianity and ISIS. With Sept. 11, fresh on his mind, Giuliani responded with an explanation of the one-sided evolution that has happened since the Crusades.

“We’re not doing to them, what they’re doing to us.

“They’re knocking down our Twin Towers and killing 3,000 people,” Giuliani said.

“[ISIS] is stoning women for adultery. … They’re killing Christians, they’re trying to wipe out Christians. It isn’t a reaction to what we’re doing. We’re not doing the same thing to them. … When is he (Obama) going to start standing up for us, for our Western values that have civilized the world?

“An American President has to be tough. … It isn’t bad if the people who want to come here and kill us are afraid of the President of the United States. Do you think any of them are afraid of him?”

    Obama lies.

    This is why Christ came and created a new covenant. Christians if they understand their Bible know that we are to live differently that the versuses you bring up. What you and other apologist want to ignore is Christians went through a reformation through Christ and haven’t burned anyone in the name of Christ for over 1,000 years while Islamist are doing it today as they have in the past.

    Old Testament, eye for an eye absolutism, which was overturned by Christ. Thanks for playing.

    I see Odor ‘of Sulfur’ Verreck misusing verses in the Bible out of context. The Bible speaking of punishment by fire, was referring to punishment after Divine judgement. As in ‘the lake of fire’ in Hades, or God’s judgement upon Sodom and Gommorah by bringing fire down upon them for their sins. Some of the verses in the Bible (Old Testament) are also in the Koran or Quran.

    In neither, was it intended for verses meant to be taken and used out of their proper context.

    The Quran speaks of the relationship it has with former books (the Torah and the Gospels) and attributes their similarities to their unique origin and saying all of them have been revealed by the one God.

    “It is He Who sent down to thee (step by step), in truth, the Book, confirming what went before it; and He sent down the Law (of Moses) and the Gospel (of Jesus) before this, as a guide to mankind, and He sent down the criterion (of judgment between right and wrong).”

    —Quran 3:3

    According to Sahih al-Bukhari, the Quran was recited among Levantines and Iraqis, and discussed by Christians and Jews, before it was standardized. Its language was similar to the Syriac language. The Quran recounts stories of many of the people and events recounted in Jewish and Christian sacred books (Tanakh, Bible) and devotional literature (Apocrypha, Midrash), although it differs in many details. Adam, Enoch, Noah, Eber, Shelah, Abraham, Lot, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Job, Jethro, David, Solomon, Elijah, Elisha, Jonah, Aaron, Moses, Zechariah, John the Baptist and Jesus are mentioned in the Quran as prophets of God. In fact, Moses is mentioned more in the Quran than any other individual. Jesus is mentioned more often in the Quran than Muhammad, while Mary is mentioned in the Quran more than the New Testament. Muslims believe the common elements or resemblances between the Bible and other Jewish and Christian writings and Islamic dispensations is due to their common divine source, and that the original Christian or Jewish texts were authentic divine revelations given to prophets.

    But there is a difference between the views of Judaism and Christianity as seen in the Koran or Quran, from that which is seen by the Islamic Extremist Jihadi of today !

    Justifying War and Violence

    Old Testament Vs. the Koran

    Not surprisingly, perhaps, these defining laws closely parallel Augustine’s “just war” conditions in the Western Christian tradition. Jihad is only to be conducted under the proper governmental authorization; it must avoid harm to noncombatants, hostages, prisoners, and property (especially trees and landscape), and its ultimate goal must be to secure justice and peace. For Islam, however, the causes of justice and peace are synonymous with the advance of muslim state, for politics and spirituality are inextricably bound together in the dream of one world under the complete reign of Allah and his followers. Thus, whereas “just war” principles do not in theory support the notion of establishing the kingdom of God by force, the Islamic doctrine of jihad unapologetically does so.

    That this is true can be seen from the disparate responses of the two religions to the record of violence for political ends in their respective historical traditions. When the church has looked backed on its dalliances with coercive power reflected in the Crusades, the Inquisition, and the like, its response in generally one of shame and repentance, for the teachings of Jesus eschew force as a mean of accomplishing God’s will on earth. When the church loses it focus on the fact that ‘the kingdom of God is established by divine agency’ and NOT by human power, that Jesus declared his Kingdom is not “of this world,” that “those who live by the sword will die by the sword,” that the terms of conquest employed by Jesus were self-sacrificing love and not application of military, economic, or social power, that is when it has turned to the methods of the world around it, with disastrous consequences.

    By contrast, when the ummah of Islam faces its history of coercion and expansion, there is no corresponding shame or repentance, for Islam teaches in its most authoritative sources that force it justifiable in the cause of Allah. Indeed, many Muslims look back on the first three centuries of Islam as the golden years of their heritage and long for a return to world ascendancy. Far from feeling regret over past conquests, Islam takes pride in this heritage.

    Explaining Old Testament Violence

    Critics of Christianity point out that the old testament historical books portray God as commanding Israel to military violence that was every bit as bloody as anything in the Koran. True Enough. But there are some vital differences to consider.

    (1) The commands are framed in terms of divine judgement on the pagan nations inhabiting the Promised Land. Israel is to drive out these nations not only to possess the land herself, but as an expression of the holiness of God. She (Israel) is further warned that if she fails to obey God, she too will be driven from the land.

    (2) Once in Canaan (the promise land), Israel was never commanded to engage in the systematic conquest of the rest of the world. Rather, she is called, through her life with God to act as a light to the nations, who through her holy example should be drawn to worship of the one true God.

    (3) The history of Israel as a political nation has limited application to the purpose of the church in the world today. The primary battle of the church is summed up in Ephesians 6:10-18, reminding us that our fight is not against flesh and blood but rather against the spiritual powers of darkness. Compare the first three centuries of Islamic expansion, and you will quickly see the empirical difference between how the two faiths propagated themselves — Islam, in large measure by the threat or exercise of force; Christianity, by peaceful proclamation and the example of love.

    The Contrasting View of Muhammad and Jesus

    Two closing illustrations will show the stark contrast of perspective between the founders of each religion in question. When Jesus was arrested at the Garden of Gethsemane, the disciples grabbed their swords. Peter actually unsheathed his and struck off the ear of one opponent. Jesus immediately commanded his followers to calm down (while healing the injured man’s ear) and decleared that violence is not the appropriate means to accomplish His Father’s will. According to Matthew 26:53, Jesus claimed that if he wanted to win a military victory, all He needed to do was call on His Father, “who will at once put an army at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels.” But He did not. Instead, rebellion was met with love, animosity with forgiveness.

    Moreover, while hanging on the cross, Jesus prayed to His Father on behalf of those who had shown themselves to be enemies, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they are doing.” (Luke 23:34). Love for enemies, sacrifice for their reconciliation to God, is the way of Jesus.

    According Sahih al-Bukhari (4:280b), one of serveral oft-repeated stories Muhammad reads thus :

    Anas bin Malik said, ” Allah’s Apostle (Muhammad) entered Mecca in the year of the conquest of Mecca wearing a helment over his head.”After he took it off, a man came and said, ” Ibn Khatal [a pagan opponent] is clinging to the curtains of the Ka’aba [a recognized behavior for seeking mercy]. ” The Prophet said, “KILL HIM.”

    While there is certainly room for debate over how all throughout history Christians and Muslims have followed the teachings of their respective leaders, there is no doubt over the contrasting visions of Jesus and Muhammad as to how the kingdom of God should be advanced on earth. So, while the Augustinian just war theory has played a relatively minor role in the spread of Christianity across the globe, jihad has been at the heart of Islam’s expansion…………

    ……..While we cannot decide for the Islamic world which path it will choose, we can choose our own path, the way of the cross, the life-style that is willing to give itself away for the welfare of others, even those who call us “enemy”. Such is the way of Jesus. Such must be the way of His people!

    What defies The President’s warped logic is not the association he made between The
    Crusaders of the 10th century AD and ISIS, but the simplistic naive
    solution he suggested to undermine the ideological tenets of Islamic terrorism-Basic HUMILITY. A brand new 21st century form of humility, a panacea tailored to contain Islamic fanaticism by reminding every Jihadi on this planet that “No God condones terror. No grievance justifies the taking of innocent lives, or the oppression of those who are weaker or fewer in number.”

    What did President Obama say? “No God condones terror.” Obviously he never read The
    Koran in its original Arabic version, and thus failed to grasp the fundamental fact that Allah the God of Islam is a God of terrorism “par excellence”, and He clearly instructs Muslims in the following verse to embrace terrorism as a religious duty: “We will put terror into the hearts of the unbelievers (Jews, Christians, Hindus). They serve other Gods for whom no sanction has been revealed. Hell shall be their home; dismal indeed is the dwelling place of the evil-doers”. Koran 3:149

    President Obama how can you believe, without imposing on yourself sophisticated games of
    denial, that humility is the solution for the perpetual war promoted by the God of Islam as a religious duty. Islam considers itself as the “Perfect Religion” based on the following decree of Allah: “This day I have perfected your deen (Arabic for religion) for you and have completed My blessing on you, and have chosen Islam for you as your deen”. The Koran 5:3

    My dear President, Islam is a supremacist religion, obsessed with the fanatical pursuit
    of raising the green flag of the prophet in every sovereign country that refuses to accept Islam, cannot and will not accept humility, and reconsider your point of view that it can herald a better future for mankind.

    All health care professionals working in the field of psychiatry endorse unreservedly the notion that the evil of slaughtering innocent civilians in a suicide attack on a wedding party, school, bus, or
    burning alive a captured Jordanian pilot …is not committed by individuals who feel uncertain about their righteousness, or have the courage to question their motives. All the Islamic evil we encountered on this planet since 9/11 has been committed by fanatics convinced that they are
    without a sin since they were born into a “perfect religion”, where Allah gave every “Muslim True Believer” the sacred right to use a fearsome destructiveness against any person who dares to question the Islamic claim and monopoly of “perfection”. In the annals of Psychiatry a huge amount of scientific evidence indicates that it is easier to cope with the pain inflicted on others in the name of Allah, rather than facing the excruciating agony of self-scrutiny.
    Psychiatrists know well that every image of self-perfection promoted by Islam
    is supported by layers and layers of sophisticated lies designed to sustain the
    image (not substance) of moral purity, and this is where you are forced
    sometimes to admire an illiterate (prophet Mohamad) who became a genius in
    building an empire based on the evils of lies and perversity.

    President Obama, before you waste your time on selling your simplistic naïve formula of
    humility and self-reflection to your allies such as Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and
    Turkey memorize the following comments of Sir Winston Churchill:“…the
    Mahommedan religion increases, instead of lessening, the fury of intolerance.
    It was originally propagated by the sword, and ever since, its votaries have
    been subject, above the people of all other creeds, to this form of
    madness…Today Western civilisation is confronted with militant Mahommedanism.
    The forces of progress clash with those of reaction. The religion of blood and
    war is face to face with that of peace. Luckily the religion of peace is
    usually the better armed. Were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the
    strong arms of science – the science against which it had vainly struggled –
    the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of
    ancient Rome.”

    Please President Obama, invest more time in scientific research and
    development, because you have a better chance to neutralize Islamic radicalism
    with the power of science, rather than the “Basic Humility” you think will keep
    the shadow of Islamic terror away from US shores.

    Obama’s father was a Muslim and he was brought up in Muslim Indonesia. That’s why he is
    comparing events that happened 800 years ago with the barbarism committed by
    terrorists in 21st century. He has purposely omitted shocking barbarous acts
    such as Armenian genocide, Christian genocide in Mosul today and beheading
    spree of jihadists. Crusade, inquisition, Jim Crow, KKK and slavery were stray,
    topical, thematic and regional incidents. Christian culture has
    changed incidents of a particular period into an all embracing culture of
    tolerance and love. That’s how a slave descendant like Obama could occupy the
    highest office in a Christian country. Conversely, from the day Islam was born
    in 7th century.,we see violence, bloodshed and terror on its trail.. Even after
    enjoying all the pleasures of Christian lifestyle in western countries such as
    education, health care,and jobs, their ingratitude is shown in terrorist acts
    like 9/11 inside the country that has reared them.
