Why do Extremist Muslims Hate America & Jews?

So WHY do extremist Muslims hate Christians, Jews and Americans so badly?

The reason is, that Muslims believe they are the final revelation of God to the world superceding Moses (Judaism) and Jesus (Christianity) which in a small respect is similar to what early Mormons believed towards Christianity (their prophet Joseph Smith’s angelic revelation, his Book of Moroni, and his resultant Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints). Muslims acknowledge Moses and Jesus as great prophets (despite Jesus claiming he was God, which if wrong, would make him a terrible prophet). They believe Mohammed is the last and greatest spiritual truth.  That is why he is called “The Prophet.”  They feel that Jews and Christians holding on to their faiths (the first and second revelations) INSULT God by denying his latest (third and final) revelation to humanity.  It is this sensibility that drives much of the passion, hysteria and fervor against Jews and Christians (and by association, the West).  America is identified as “christian” and her foreign policy has added heat to the hatred, which is viewed as arrogant opposition from a base of rebellion against God.

This ‘arrogance’ is reiterated by extremist-Muslim perceptions of western sexual promiscuity, homosexuality, the liberty of women, clothing, movies, books, the use of alcohol, graven images, all of which violate Islamic laws (revelation) and they think directly insults God.

This is a theological and religious ideological conflict.  New Zealanders need to understand, that we can be killed and attacked in foreign contexts (like Bali) because we are culturally identified as “christians.”  It is not about the Palestinians, or Israel building apartments in restricted parts of Israel (Palestinians live freely in Israel, but not the other way around).  This is a deeply seated spiritual and theological conflict: a religious clash that has persevered for centuries, ever since Islam first arose in 610 AD.

Most Christians understand these developments in spiritual terms as underlaying physical (“flesh and blood“) events, what is called theologically “principalities and powers” (Ephesians 6:12). A Biblical prophesy from 90AD (the Apostle John) puts it this way (Rev. 12) [my inserts to clarify what is meant apocalyptically]…

1 A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman [Israel] clothed with the sun [Jacob] with the moon [his wife Rachel] under her feet and a crown of twelve stars [Joseph and his brothers, Jews] on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon [Satan]…Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky [destruction of world Jewry, i.e. Adolf Hitler killed 1/3 of all Jews] and flung them to the earth. The dragon [Satan] stood in front of the woman [Israel] who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child [Jewish Messiah] the moment he was born. She gave birth to a son, a male child [Jesus] who “will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.” And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne [the Resurrection and Ascension].The woman fled into the wilderness [scattered into the world's nations after 70 AD when Jerusalem was sacked] to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of [protected from complete genocide]17 Then the dragon was enraged at the woman [Israel] and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring—those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus [Christians].”

Christian comprehension of this theology is what explains the pathological persecution of Jews, Christians and latterly the West, since forever.

About coNZervative

A blog about politics, life, culture, literature, music and thought from Christchurch, New Zealand [NZ] (the home of 10,000 earthquakes since 4 Sept. 2010) built because of the bullying and cajoling of Liberal opinion-makers (journalism and Hollywood) against conservative-minded people who are as entitled to opinion and a perspective as anyone; and because Conservativism has served the world well. John Stringer is a New Zealander (Christchurch) in his 40s married to an American from Taco Bell; they have 5 adult children in 3 diff. countries. John is an ex-Anglican pastor, a teacher, published author (NZ), novelist (USA) and cartoonist (Aust, NZ), and has spent the last 25 years in NZ politics with the National party (he was a parliamentary candidate in 1999). There was a stint in London working for the British Conservative party as well, where he did media minding and campaign work with several Brit cabinet ministers, including Baroness Thatcher, Baroness Blatch, Michael Howard, Tom King, among others. He has an MA (classical studies, Victoria); is a graduate of the New York Film Academy; and has various awards for writing. His passions include British bulldogs, fly fishing, and history (Ancient and WWII). Winston Churchill was mainly a “Conservative” but also a “Liberal” MP between 1900-1964. A Member of Parliament for 64 years, he contested 21 parliamentary elections (for Oldham, Manchester North West, Dundee, and Epping/Woodford). Throughout his career Churchill stood for liberty. He believed in open debate and freedom of speech, and opposed any system or ideology that tried to dictate the way one should think. Churchill felt deeply that disagreements within the democratic system should not degenerate into personal animosities.

  1. John, your opening sentence implies you still believe the myth that there is such a thing as a “moderate” Muslim. In fact, every single Muslim has the context of your subsequent sentences as their core ideological and theological base. There is no such thing as a Moderate Muslim. That is a myth put about by weaklings in the US administration so they could at once go to war in Afghanistan/Pakistan and Iraq, while simultaneously claiming not to be at war with Islam.

    Whether or not the nations of the West are at war with Islam, Islam is most definitely at war with the nations of the West. It’s simply that the nations of the West have thus far chosen not to fight.

    The sooner the west wakes up and realises “violent extremism” (the US Administration’s latest set of weasel words), al Qaeda, the Taliban are mainstream Islam, the sooner we can identify and battle the real enemy.

      Bablah bablah bablah. Gantt never provides any evidence to support his pathological assertions. That’s because they’re based on fear, hatred and ignorance rather than facts. He’s a bit like a cowardly version of Anders Breivik.
