This New ISIS video Proves Why Islam is Conquering the West

isis-flag

Two years ago I wrote a book entitled Lions of the Faith: Saints, Blesseds, and Heroes of the Catholic Faith in the Struggle with Islam. I wrote it because I wanted to learn, in part, what things the great men who are models for Christian life and practice in the existential survival against Islam all have in common.

These Catholic men and women, mostly from the West, were the ones who converted, resisted again, were martyred by, or went to war against the armies of Islam and many times achieved crushing victories that were nothing short of miraculous. The Spanish Reconquista (and the many, many battles therein), the resistance at Poitiers, the Siege of Jerusalem, the Siege of Belgrade, the Battle of Lepanto, the Battle of Vienna, and many others were either won or lost based upon the state of the Faith held by the people who went to battle.

Overall, I found five common traits:

  • They believe in the Faith
  • They sincerely strive to practice the Faith to its fullest form
  • They will fight for the Faith
  • They will die for the Faith
  • They will kill for the Faith.

As much as I despise ISIS and Islam, I can say the following about them and their supporters:

  • They sincerely believe Islam is true
  • They sincerely strive to practice Islam to its fullest form
  • They will fight for Islam
  • They will die for Islam
  • They will kill for Islam

Once upon a time, during the Middle Ages, European Christendom was as strong in its Catholic Faith as was the Muslim world in Islam. However, that is no longer so. Instead, the state of not just Christianity, but practically any religion in Europe except Islam is nonexistent. John Lennon captured this in his song Imagine, especially in the following line (starting at 1:30 in the link here):

…Imagine there’s no countries, it isn’t hard to do, nothing to kill or die for, and no religion too.

 

Compare this new ISIS video as the face of Islam, and John Lennon’s Imagine as the face of Western religion today. If these two religions were in a boxing match (forget about what the stakes could be, such as the fate of the entire Western world) which one would win?

You decide.

First, ISIS’s new video (with transcribed lyrics; the main song starts at 1:40):

Note: The original video was deleted. This is a copy of the song that accompanied it. AB

For the sake of Allah we will march to the gates, of the paradise where our maidens await; We are men who love death as you love your life, we are the soldiers that fight in the day and the night, we are the soldiers that fight in the day and the night;

Going forth, preparing to roar, we are brothers of light with kuffar in sight; Their ranks are many and weapons are heavy, but the soldiers of Allah are more than ready, the soldiers of Allah are more than ready;

For the sake of Allah we will march to the gates, of the paradise where our maidens await; We are men who love death as you love your life, we are the soldiers that fight in the day and the night, we are the soldiers that fight in the day and the night;

Defending the pride of our sisters who have cried, for fearing the but that the almighty is one; Their voices motivated, the men who migrated, to fill their duty of making god’s word the greatest, to fill their duty of making god’s word the greatest;

For the sake of Allah we will march to the gates, of the paradise where our maidens await; We are men who love death as you love your life, we are the soldiers that fight in the day and the night, we are the soldiers that fight in the day and the night;

O my brother, jihad is the way, to bring back the honor of our glorious days; the promise of all will always remain, that fighting for his sake is the ultimate gain, that fighting for his sake is the ultimate gain;

For the sake of Allah we will march to the gates, of the paradise where our maidens await; We are men who love death as you love your life, we are the soldiers that fight in the day and the night, we are the soldiers that fight in the day and the night;

And now the time has come for the battles to be won, shahada on our tongues as our hearts beat as one; The Sunnah is alive, the khilafa is on the rise, the flag of tawhid shining bright before our eyes, the flag of tawhid shining bright before our eyes.

 

Then, John Lennon’s Imagine:

  • Willing to die for Jesus

    I have said it before and I’ll keep on saying it.

    It is the Leftists, who are now basically Cultural Marxists, that have almost succeeded in almost dismantling anything resembling Christendom or Christian culture in the West.

    Marxists have been recklessly attacking Christianity in the West for so long since the 1960s Sexual Revolution that now all institutions of power, from all levels of Government, Media, Education and Big Business are thoroughly anti-Christian.

    These atheistic Marxists have never cared that the void left behind by a dechristianized West has only made Islam and more Muslims confident that Christianity is a “false” religion and “proves” by its weakness that Islam is the “true” religion.

    Perhaps even worse are those apostate mainline Protestant denominations that have caved into the death culture and most recently have accepted the abomination of “church homosexual weddings”.

    These liberal Protestant groups send a message to the non-Western world like Africa that Christianity is a religion that accepts these sorts of sins.

    It also enables Muslims to claim Christianity is a “false” religion not only because of the splintered Western Christianity and the apostate mainline Protestant groups.

    Muslims can also point to apostate Western former Christians as “evidence” that Christianity is “not true,” when this apostasy has more to do with the result of materialism, relativism and the constant bombardment of anti-Christian values in the education system and media.

    When such perversions as “homosexual marriage”, contraception, abortion, infanticide, divorce, gender “neutrality” and LGBT ideology, euthanasia, and basically everything that strikes at the core of marriage and the family and against the Culture of Life is what the Western nations teach their nations to value (and that they export to the world), Western Christians can continue to feel like aliens in their own nations.

    Western Christians can only look at the Orthodox Christians and Catholics that survived the anti-Christian Soviet Union, which was the first nation to institute the death culture the West is now engulfed in.

    Russia, Poland, Serbia, Hungary.. these nations have regained their Catholic and Orthodox Christianity.. but at the same time are being attacked by the anti-Christian practices of the USA (Soros) and the EU for their revitalized Christianity.

    Patrick Buchanan’s The Death of the West: How Dying Populations and Immigrant Invasions Imperil Our Culture and Civilization (2000) is spot on. Anything by Buchanan is about the dire predicament of the West and Western Christianity.

    As Buchanan wrote over a decade ago:

    “In 1960, people of European ancestry were one-fourth of the world’s population; in 2000, they were one-sixth; in 2050, they will be one-tenth. These are the statistics of a vanishing race.”

    “Of Europe’s 47 nations, only one, Muslim Albania, was, by 2000, maintaining a birthrate sufficient to keep it alive indefinitely. Europe had begun to die.”

    Pray for Christian Unity, and a return to Christian values that once made the West strong.

      Keep speaking truth and don’t get discouraged. Truth must be repeated until people finally realize that it is the truth, and then it must be repeated again.

      It’s not just West, Willing. Have you checked out some of the videos I asked you to watch? 😉 If you have some spare time, Willing, please watch the following videos on Youtube to see exactly what I meant by my words that “there is a lot of spiritual FILTH in Japan that are endangering not only the young Japanese but also the young Americans especially, including those who profess their Christian faiths.” (I can’t link them to you right now as I am in China T^T)

      The Sonic Brainfart videos (originally uploaded by a banned Youtuber named BlackbusterCritic and reuploaded by a Youtube channel Heavens Library) with “Alix Henriol and Sonic Passion,” “KingMasterReview,” “PaulandAmy,” and “Tidal Wave” in their titles.

      Do not underestimate the power and influence of anime, manga, and video games, Willing. They are not to be taken very lightly. Wasn’t it CHRISTIAN ART (Christian icons and paintings) that converted the Romans to Christianity back when the pagans and Caesar worshippers were brutally persecuting the early believers and saints, as opposed to what the anti-Catholic Fundamentalists (like Jack T. Chick, an anti-Catholic propagandist) still believe brought forth the Christian faith – THe Bible (even though it was finally compiled by the Church in 4th century)? Weren’t the pagan Russian ambassadors so awed by the Byzantine art that they immediately converted to the Orthodox faith right on the spot? Wasn’t the Baroque art that the Catholic Church combated Protestantism in Europe with during the Reformation Era? Most importantly, out of all artists, God is the BEST. 😉

      So if Godly art can draw people to the Way, the Truth, and the Life, what do you think would SATAN’s art do? And sadly, anime and manga, which are NOT evil themselves (and could have been used for spreading the Gospel had it been on God’s hands), have been used and exploited by Satan. 🙁

      Excellent analysis, professor Will!!

      Which videos?

      • CounterHeresyFighter

        The videos on the article.

        • Smith

          There’s a bunch of them, I’ll just do all of them and get them to ya today

  • All of this is happening because the Holy Spirit revealed:

    “Apostasy
    4 But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will [a]fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, 2 by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron, 3 men who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth. 4 For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with gratitude; 5 for it is sanctified by means of the word of God and prayer.” 1 Timothy.

    All the heresies that arose in the Church have come back with a vengeance. We have seen how much cults that originated from the Church have exploded in the last two centuries. It does not appear to be slowing down.

    God is not the author of confusion. God gave the Church advanced distant early warning this situation the Church is faced in was foretold.

    It is a mistake to limit the main cause of the demise of the western Church to “Marxists.” Gnosticism have never went away. Islam, which is an advanced form of Arianism, have been around for over a thousand years. Unitarianism is another form of Arianism.

    The bottom line is … Old heresies do not die. And that is precisely what we are dealing with.

    • And I would add that since the Church are to be bulwark and pillar of truth, then the rot have accelerated with bad leadership who are being led by the prince of darkness rather than the light.

      The Church have become complacent and lazy. Regrettably, the body count will force the Church to wake up from its stupor.

      When you have some Christians saying that Islam and Christians are sister faith, something is wrong. When you have a leader telling atheists that as long as they follow their conscience, they will get to heaven.

      Did the Marxists create Islam? Did the Marxists create Jehovah’s Witness? Seventh Day Adventists? Did Marxists create Jim Jones or David Koresh?

      See how silly it is to limit the West problem to simply just the Marxists?

      The bottom line is the devil is the source of confusion.

      • Marxists appears to be a throwback to when Greek philosophy were King. The Enlightenment period “rediscovered” it and ran away with it.

        Fortunately though, the Church during that time was well prepared for it since there were a great number of theologians well trained in philosophy.

    And this is just one of many examples how Islam draws many young people these days – Anime & Manga.

    Never underestimate the power and influence that anime has on teens and youths.

    Andrew – is this available in book form? I clicked the link so I could buy it, all that was available was a kindle edition.

  • AnthonyM

    I can imagine people believing only in their own efforts when then are engulfed in wealth and money.

  • theophorus

    Why does it look like they are holding hosts in the first portion of the isis video?

    • Tom_mcewen

      Yes

    By refusing refugees under the persecuted by religion status and only accepting persecuted by governing regime status, no one can claim they are escaping ISIS.. Pretty underhanded of Obama and he made it shameful if you objected. Only those persecuted by Assad are allowed passage into America… Who’s persecuted by Assad? ISIS. Imagine by John Lennon is about no religion at all. I always saw it as a NWO song.
