Islam's self-described drive toward World Conquest:
Muslims shout at Jesus' home: 'Islam will dominate the world': "The Islamic Movement, the main Muslim political party in Nazareth, said it organized yesterday's march to celebrate Eid ul-Adha, or the Feast of the Sacrifice, which commemorates the Muslim belief Abraham was willing to sacrifice his son Ishmael for Allah. Christian and Jewish faith dictates it was Isaac, not Ishmael, whom Abraham almost sacrificed....
"Young Muslim men in battle gear marched and beat drums as a man on loudspeaker repeatedly exclaimed in Arabic, 'Allah is great.' Hundreds of activists strutted screaming Islamist epithets, including 'Islam is the only truth' and 'Islam shall rule all.'...
"'The march is meant to intimidate Christians,' said Saleem, a Nazareth Christian resident who asked that his last name be withheld for fear of what he said was 'Muslim retaliation' for speaking out. 'It's part of the methods used by the Muslims in very obvious ways to create an atmosphere where the Christians should know the Muslims are the main power and we are not welcome anymore." ...the majority of anti-Christian violence in Nazareth goes unreported because local Christians are too afraid to report crimes."
The Islamic Tide: "[Muslims have] a saying. 'First comes Saturday, then comes Sunday.' According to Brigitte Gabriel, a survivor of the Muslim terror in Lebanon, this saying means, 'first we fight the Jews, then we come for the Christians.' It must be admitted, of course, that Muslims haven’t waited for Israel’s defeat to begin attacking Christians.'
"Once upon a time the peaceful Christians of Lebanon built a democracy with open borders in the Middle East, and the Muslims destroyed it.... One day they began murdering Christians until the country was no longer recognizable. Christians fled the rubble of their homes.....
"In Iraq, under a Muslim majority, democracy signifies nothing more than the unleashing of Islamic gangs that authorities either cannot or will not control. While the neo-communists and their useful idiots around the world decry U.S. war crimes against Muslims, the Muslims have been perpetrating crimes against Christians.... And don’t imagine the U.S. military has intervened to save the Christians. The American military is weak because it is governed by political correctness. The commander-in-chief has already declared that Islam is 'a religion of peace.'...
“Whether motivated by naďve wishful thinking or rigid political correctness,' wrote Brigitte Gabriel, 'they assert that Islam is a ‘moderate,’ ‘tolerant,’ ‘peaceful’ religion that has been hijacked by ‘extremists.’
"'Their grievance is our freedom of religion.... 'We must not forget that Allah’s rules have to be established in all lands, and all our efforts should lead to that direction,' [says the "moderate" Muzammil H. Siddiqi, leader of the Islamic Society of North America]."
