Are Yahweh and Allah the same deity? by Mark Dever
This video very briefly explains why Yahweh and Allah are not the same deities.
Scripture declares that Jesus said He shared honor and Glory with The Father before Abraham and Creation. He also repeatedly and explicitly stated that He and The Father are one. Despite Muslim claims that they worship the God of the Bible, John Piper explains in this short video that they do not worship him because Jesus said if you do not love honer and worship Him, you do not honor The Father.
Is-lam-a-phobe*: “unfounded fear of and hostility towards Islam” – excerpted from the CAIR website.
The Tennessee Freedom Coalition and many of our friends working against radical Islam do not believe these so-called “fears” are unfounded. These fears have been clearly justified through the actions of radical islamists for hundreds of years. The following text has been making its way through email forwards and posts by like-minded organizations. We felt compelled to share it with you so you could pass it along to others to help them understand the difference.
- A dhimmi relies on ad hominem, hence the term “Islamophobe”, where an Islamophobe uses critical analysis of source documents to have a rational, objective, fact-based discussion about political sharia.
- A dhimmi only reads the Meccan verses of the Quran, while an Islamophobe reads the whole Quran and understands abrogation.
- A dhimmi attends every interfaith and Family of Abraham event they can find, where an Islamophobe isn’t worried about political correctness.
- A dhimmi wants to try on the hijab, where an Islamophobe could care less whether anyone wears one but occasionally wonders how the skinny jeans fit in.
- A dhimmi is willing to forgo their ham sandwich so as not to offend any Muslim sitting anywhere in the cafeteria, where an Islamophobe invites a Muslim to the pig roast and even offers to bring them a cheese sandwich.
- A dhimmi objects to printing the Muhammad cartoons, where an Islamophobe buys extra copies of Charlie Hebdo even though he/she doesn’t speak a word of French.
- A dhimmi believes the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood is a conservative humanitarian freedom and justice party, while an Islamophobe has read, reread and highlighted the 1991 Muslim Brotherhood Explanatory Memorandum on the Strategic Goals for North America.
- A dhimmi doesn’t believe there is a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood branch, while an Islamophobe saves a screen shot of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood by-laws now scrubbed from their website which stated, “The Islamic nation must be fully prepared to fight the tyrants and the enemies of Allah as a prelude to establishing an Islamic state.”
- A dhimmi believes anything Islamists tell them about Islam and sharia, while an Islamophobe is willing to confront the painful truth about political sharia.
*A more accurate term would be “Islamorejectionist”

THIS IS SO SO AWESOME – MY FAVORITE COUNTER-JIHADIST HAS WRITTEN A BOOK. CITIZEN WARRIOR IS LIKE THE PSYCHOLOGIST OF THE MOVEMENT AND HE WILL TEACH YOU HOW TO TALK TO MUSLIMS ABOUT ISLAM.
ABSOLUTELY MUST SEE VIDEOS, PLEASE MAKE VIRAL!!!
On July 24th John Guandolo gave this intelligence briefing on the MB in Georgia. This mini-brief is four hours of a usual 3 day briefing that Guandolo used to give to law enforcement and intelligence officials. Here are Guandolos credentials.
About the Presenter — “Counterterrorism expert and former federal agent John Guandolo graduated from the US Naval Academy in 1989, accepting a commission as an Officer in the United States Marines. He served as a combat Infantry Platoon Commander with the 2nd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment during Operations Desert Storm and Desert Shield and as a Platoon Commander, Assistant Operations Officer, and Airborne and Diving Officer in the 2nd Force Reconnaissance Company between 1991 and 1996. John resigned his commission in the Marines in 1996 and joined the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in the Washington, DC Field Office. He investigated numerous cases while at the FBI, and in addition to serving as Swat Team Leader for the Washington Field Office, was one of the Bureau’s Advanced Capability Medics. While working in the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division, John acquired substantial knowledge and expertise in the Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic Law (a.k.a. shari’ah) and teaching, and the Global Islamic Movement (GIM). His accumulated knowledge on these and related subjects earned him the FBI’s “Subject Matter Expert” (SME)” designation, a role that afforded him the opportunity to design and implement the FBI’s first counter-terrorism training”.
Guandolo has been giving this same presentation, since 2003, to the U.S. intelligence community, before it was ‘outlawed” by our government. He obviously knows this material inside and out. The evidence for MB infiltration into our government is epically overwhelming. Not only that, the evidences of Al Quada and Hamas infiltration are also as overwhelming.
Take for instance Aldurahman Alamoudi and Anwar Alawki. Aldurahman Alamoudi was the top advisor to Bill Clinton on Islam. Alamoudi also started over 20 MB front groups in America, our Military Muslim Chaplin Program and was instrumental in choosing textbooks on Islam in American public schools. It turns out that not only is he MB, he is also Hammas and is in prison now for plotting with Hammas to kill a Saudi Arabian Prince and providing financing to Hammas. Anwar Alawki was the top advisor to George W. Bush on 911 and was the go to guy about policy towards Islam after 911. After many months of advising the administration and even holding prayer events at the U.S. Capitol Building, it was determined that Anwar Alawki was Hammas. Years later Obama would order a drone missile strike to take Anwar Alawki out. And it is almost as bad now as it was then. COULD WE AT LEAST KEEP HAMMAS OUT OF OUR GOVERNMENT?
This briefing is also available on an 80 minute DVD entitled,,, “Understanding The Threat To America”,,, at http://www.understandingthethreat.com
Here is some description text from that site. “On August 20, 2004, two Baltimore County, MD police officers spotted Selim Elbarasse and his wife videotaping the 4.3-mile-long Chesapeake Bay Bridge. When they reported the sighting to Maryland Transportation Authority (MTA) Police at the toll plaza, officers stopped Elbarasse’s SUV west of the bridge. Police confiscated the camera, and afterward reported having seen the Elbarasses, who were accompanied by two children, attempting to hide the camera. The confiscated video contained close-up footage of Chesapeake Bay Bridge support structures. When officers ran a criminal background check, they discovered that Elbarasse was wanted on an outstanding material witness warrant out of Chicago in a case involving the terrorist group Hamas and Elbarasse was detained.
When agents of the FBI’s Washington, DC Field Office raided Elbarasse’s Annandale, Virginia home and searched his basement, they found a hidden sub-basement containing the archives of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America. The seized documents, which revealed a secret Muslim Brotherhood strategy to infiltrate and overthrow the United States Government and replace the Constitution with Islamic Law, were subsequently entered into evidence in the Holy Land Foundation trial, the largest terrorism financing case in US history. Further investigation and discovery confirmed that the Muslim Brotherhood had not only penetrated the Federal Government at the highest levels, but had been running a sophisticated influence operation from within the Federal Bureaucracy for decades. Contrary to sound reason, the Muslim Brotherhood’s infiltration of government and influence in the affairs of state has not decreased, but has grown much worse since.
Understanding the Threat to America lays bare the danger posed by those who masquerade as “moderate Muslims” to gain our trust while they work secretly to overthrow of our way of life; exposes the individual actors, organizational infrastructure, and modus operandi of the “civilizational jihad;” and arms viewers with useful information and practical steps they can take to reverse the “Civilization Jihad” in America.”
The same briefing, given years ago, is also available here http://teapartytv.us/?p=353
After I watched both presentations of the briefing, I ordered the 80 minute DVD and sent a letter to Guandolo requesting an interview by email and for access to a brochure he mentioned and has produced called The Muslim Brotherhood Handbook.
THIS INTELLIGENCE BRIEF IS SO POWERFUL that I am also buying video editing software to take the different sections of the brief, cut them up, and upload them everywhere I can. And when I get the 80 minute DVD, I will be making it available on ALL my YouTube accounts and I will self host the video on my server if it is taken down from youtube. THE BRIEFING IS THAT GOOD AND NECESSARY.
WE MUST GET THIS INFORMATION INTO THE HANDS OF EVERY AMERICAN!!!
I think every westerner should have to answer the question,, “How did all the Muslim countries in the world become Islamic”. Sadly most don’t have a clue. I used to recommend this post called JIHAD: From Mecca to WW2, but it is an hour and a half of video with commentary and many hotlinks to other material. But now I am going to recommend these 15 minutes of videos because Bill Federer (author of “What Every American Needs To Know About The Koran” and “Political Islam’s War On The West“) is a historian who recounts the history of Islam in more detail than I have ever seen, and in just 15 minutes. A large bulk of my studies of Islam has focused on it’s history, and I still learned much from Federers’ presentation. This is one of those videos you wish everyone had to watch, and would watch. PLEASE spread it around!!!
After recounting 1400 years of Jihad and conquest, Federer gets a poo eating grin and says,,, “I just wanted to encourage you”. I’m not sure but I think this video is of what he said afterwards. It is a challenge
This video series is probably better than all the other teaching series on Islam I have seen. Dr. Mark Durie, author of the excellent book on Dhimmitude “The Third Choice“, goes into deep detail about Islam and Dhimmitude, even the Dhimmi Ritual that used to be performed by Dhimmis under the Islamic Caliphate. This series is excellent to show to non-Muslims who are not aware of the dangers of Islam because it kinda creeps into the more unpleasant stuff after Durie gives his background and captures your attention. And the last several videos in this playlist are of a really good question and answer session.
Is the Bible as violent as the Koran? The answer is YES, if you talk to many Muslims and Liberals. But are they really? The following is a short discussion I had with a liberal about the subject. I hope to show you that they are not and that all non-Muslims should be uniting and working against Islam, not only because it is an institution that is a Human Rights nightmare, but because Islam really does have the submission of the whole world to Islam as it’s goal.
When you bring up the Koran or Hadith, many scream context context context,, claiming that if read in their proper context, they really don’t say what they say – so it’s all good, just relax.
Dr. Mark Durie (author of The Third Choice) confronts this misconception in his article,, A Dozen Bad Ideas for the 21st Century and says “8. The belief that putting something in context will always produce a more innocuous interpretation. This is not true. Attending properly to context can make a text even more offensive than it would otherwise have been. Conversely, if you take something out of context you may regard it more positively than you ought to. In reality, radical interpretations of the Qur’an, such as are used to support terrorism, almost always involve an appeal to a rich understanding of the context in which the Qur’an was revealed, including the life of Muhammad. On the other hand, many have taken peaceful verses of the Qur’an out of context, in order to prove that Islam is a peaceful religion”.
I think my responses in the exchange below do a fairly good job of showing that if put in their proper context, the Bible does not say what many who wish to obfuscate with false moral equivalences want it to say, and the Koran says and means exactly what many people fervently hope and pray that it does not really say and mean. For many, the obvious, when looking into the context, is just too much to bear – so we have a generation with their heads in the sand.
I have been spending much of my time at Eric Allen Bells’ Facebook page and new website for the past month or so. You may not know him yet, but he is a liberal film maker and writer who had a drastic change of view about Islam, and much of everything else, as a result of doing a documentary on the mega-mosque in Murfreesboro Tennessee. For Eric, the impetus to look at Islam again was a conversation he had with a Christian Coptic Cab driver in which the driver disagreed with him that the changes happening in Egypt are a good thing. The driver told him a regime change would be fatal to his family back home. For me the impetus was the responce of Muslims and non-Muslims, around the world and online, to Pastor Terry Jones’s Burn A Koran Day almost two years ago (you can read my short testimony about it in the sidebar). To get people up to speed on Eric’s amazing story, I usually give them this article called The High Price of Telling The truth About Islam You can see the amazing work he has done on exposing and opposing the mosque in Tennessee (since his change of mind) here, that has resulted in him quickly becoming a big player in the counter-jihad movement and him being featured on Fox News in the past and twice in the last few days.
As a result of these Fox News appearances, the leftist online media is featuring the recent videos also because Eric is very blunt and right on in his assertions about Islam, most specifically that Islam is “the worst, most deadly idea in the history of the world”. Those two videos are posted here (at media matters – the site my exchange is on). I think all three videos are a must see as rarely have such truths about Islam been spoken freely on any mainstream media. Eric has been studying Islam now for about 2 years and he knows his stuff and is very articulate.
Here is all three segments on one video at Youtube
This is a really good teaching series on Islam by David Robertson of TheCrescentOrTheCross.com and the HUGE LetTruthSpeak Youtube channel. David is a former atheist who said “I never thought I would be teaching in a Christian Church, much less teaching on Islam”. But after over 4 years and an estimated 10.000 hours studying Islam, he is now teaching the following class on Islam at his church – and doing a real good job at it. Right now (as of 4-21-12) there is a little over four hours of classroom time video but David says the class still has a long way to go and he will be uploading a new classroom session to his YouTube Channel every week or so. You can SUB to his YouTube channel or come back to this blogpost because I will be adding the new videos to this playlist as soon as David uploads them. ENJOY!!!

This awesome 2 hour and 45 minute learning course by Sam Shamoun is one of the top 3, of many, learning courses we have collected here on this website. I would suggest any debate with Sam Shamoun as he is probably the top Muslim Apologist to Muslims and is a co-host on ABNsat.com on the Jesus or Muhammad Show. You’ll be hard pressed to find anyone with a greater working knowledge of Islam than Sam. And whoever produced this teaching series did an outstanding job.
If you have 3 hours and want to learn about Islam and what it teaches, take a watch at your leisure. If you have more time, check out this 16 hour learning course on Apologetics To Islam by Joe Carey. Please give the course a viewing and encourage others to take these courses and then educate the public about the dangers of Islam and it’s threat to the west.
YOUTUBE DESCRIPTION: To the Western mind, the faith and practice of Islam are often a profound mystery. In recent years, this religion has emerged as a prominent — yet misunderstood — belief system. Listen as Sam Shamoun, an Arab-Christian, unveils some of the mystique surrounding this religion first preached by Muhammad and today practiced by more than one billion people worldwide.
