Today we will be hearing from Briggitte Gabriel, author of Because They Hate. She starts with her testimony, she moved to America from Israel and was so excited to live here not thinking that Radical Islam could also attack in America. She remembers September 11, 2001, and how that day brought back so many memories when she was a child and lived in Lebanon, she was in a terrorist attack by Radical Islam and recounts how she felt. As her daughter came home on September 11, she asked why the attacks happened in America, and Briggitte recalled what her Father used to tell her when she was a child. “They hate us because they consider us infidels and they want to kill us because we are Christians.” This was the day that she became and activist, September 11, 2001 was a defining moment for America and it was a defining moment for her which set her forth into her destiny, and her goal was to stop terrorism in America so that her grandchildren will never have to go through anything like she has been through. She says she was positioned in a way so that she can move in her purpose to mobilize as many Americans as she can, to educate them about the threat of radical Islam, while still loving and praying for Muslims throughout the world. Matthew 10:16, “Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves.” As Christians we don’t need to bury our head in the sand, we need be educated so we can make a difference in this world. “God changes the world by using His people to make a difference.” Through this desire and need for education on this topic and more Briggitte launched her ministry ACT for America, to give us the tools and tips to empower us what we can do in our own community.
Many people are theorist of their understanding of Islam but Briggitte has her own personal experience having lived in Lebanon and also surviving terrorist attacks. She was brought in to speak at the Values Voters Summit in Washington, D.C. to share the history of the ideology of Islam. She is able to put 1400 years of history in 5 minutes because she wanted to make it as exciting as possible. Briggitte shares history because, “Those that don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.” She explains how Islam started with the prophet Muhammad and his “revelation.” As Muhammad desired to make this “revelation” known to others, it was made known to only his immediate family and friends. Unsatisfied with the results, Muhammad went to Medina in hopes of a better response to Jews in Medina. So, he took excerpts from the Old Testament. Briggitte expresses, “This is why you see a lot of similarities between Judaism and Islam. For example, Jews don’t eat pigs. Muslims don’t eat pigs. Jews pray few times a day. Muslims pray few times a day. Jews fast on Yom Kippur. Muslims fast on Ramadan.” As the militant movement against the Jews continued under the leadership of Muhammad, he created his own methods of marking those that he was against. “Jews and Christians were given identifiable clothing. The yellow star, which was given to the Jews that most people think, is a German invention. It was actually an Islamic invention, in the 9th Century, in Iraq…”
She continues to express the true events of what took place during The Crusades, The history of The Caliphate, the significance of ISIS, the history of Yasser Arafat and why the current peace treaty with Iran regarding their nuclear program MEANS NOTHING TO IRAN. Watch or listen to the full program to hear all of this truth and be empowered to know how to respond to events in our culture today. We want to hear from you and what you think about this.
