According to his website, the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser “is a first generation American Muslim whose parents fled the oppressive Baath regime of Syria in the mid-1960’s for American freedom. He is leading the fight to shake the hold that the Muslim Brotherhood and their network of American Islamist organizations and mosques seek to exert on organized Islam in America.”
Dr. Jasser works tirelessly promoting peace in Islamic communities. He acknowledges that his own Islamic religion is the root of the brutality in the Middle East and around the world today. The Muslim American community doesn’t like Zuhdi Jasser, CAIR is one of his loudest detractors. However, the doctor continues to be a “devout Muslim.”
Although Dr. Jasser acknowledges that Koranic teaching directs the terrorism of groups such as Al Qaeda, Boco Haram, Ansar Al Sharia, Hamas, Abu Sayeef, Taliban, Al-Shabaab, and ISIS, he is still in denial. He joins our current and last president, and most all of the world’s media, as he continues to cling to the claim that “Islam is a religion of peace…hijacked by radicals.”
A few have left Islam, like former radical PLO-Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer Walid Shoebat. Walid recognized that the problem with the Koran was not with those who “hijacked” its meaning, it was with the contents of the book and the life of its author.
Muhammad was an evil man, not a prophet of the living God. His Koranic writings are nothing but Satanic guidance, and his life an example of ungodly behavior.
Listen to Walid’s own words, as he describes these terrible times that we live in. The Bible, God’s true Word, describes the final battles here on earth, when Jerusalem will be overrun by Satan’s armies, and many Jews will be murdered. But, even this battle belongs to the Lord, and He will return from Heaven with a shout to destroy those who fight against His people!
“…I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God… They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.” (Revelation 11:19/ESV)
We are on the winning side. Though the times are becoming more dangerous, and already deadly for many, for those whose faith is placed in the God of the Bible, there is the eternal hope of new life and victory with Him.
As the Spirit of the living God called Walid Shoebat into faith in Jesus, we may pray that He does the same for Dr. Jasser. Only God can change the Islamist’s heart!
“His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems…He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which He is called is The Word of God. And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following Him on white horses. From His mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. On His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.” (Revelation 19:12-16/ESV)
