Terrorism expert Robert Spencer says Islamic supremacism is
alive and well on the 11th anniversary of 9/11. And Christian
writer and commentator Janet Parshall says on this anniversary, it
is clear that radical Muslims continue to work toward their dream
of a world dominated by Islam.
Much has changed since the morning of September 11, 2001. For
example, Islam has advanced its influence throughout the world --
even in the United States. And Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch
says that should give Americans pause on this 11th anniversary of
the attacks. (Listen to audio report)
"We can say that 9/11 was a great boon for Islamic
supremacists," he tells OneNewsNow, "because it enabled them to get
access and make inroads into American society to an unprecedented
Describing what he considers another major change, Spencer notes
that George W. Bush has been replaced by Barack Obama in the White
House. "It could be very bad for defenders of freedom if Obama is
re-elected," he states, "and there could be real effort to shut
down pro-freedom websites and pro-freedom radio commentators. It's
a very real possibility that that could happen."
And according to the Jihad Watch leader, while Obama continues
to pander to Muslims, the Canadians have taken a strong stand by
severing ties with Iran. "Canada is taking over really the
leadership of the free world and is showing that Obama has largely
abdicated that role," he comments. "Canada is doing what the United
States ought to have done a long time ago."
In the context of the future influence of Islam, Spencer is
hopeful that a future American president will emulate the
government of Canadian leader Stephen Harper.
An 'enemy' who needs Christ
Janet Parshall is a Christian activist, public
speaker, and author of Buyer Beware: Finding Truth in the
Marketplace of Ideas. She says radical Islamists remain
committed to ushering in a worldwide caliphate. (Listen to audio report)
"It's still a part of the game plan," she laments. "And those
Islamacists who want that caliphate to be put in place work slowly,
consistently, steadfastly -- and they have much more patience than
we do generally here in the West."
And that is unfortunate, she says, because Westerners are stuck
in a quagmire of political correctness, not doing what needs to be
done. "It's like saying during World War II [that] we're fighting
the Nazis, but we don't mention the Nazis by name," Parshall tells
OneNewsNow. "So we need to recognize that there is an enemy who has
stated declaredly that they want us dead. [To them] we are the
But Parshall points out that there are Muslims who have been
caught in the snare of darkness who now are coming to faith in
Jesus Christ in record numbers.
"Jesus is showing up in dreams and visions in dark, closed
countries where they're not allowed to go to church and where the
message of the gospel can't be proclaimed," she notes. "But because
Christ is not willing that any should perish, he uses whatever
means to show up in people's lives -- and people are coming to
The Christian author encourages her fellow believers to remember
that Muslims need Christ as much as anybody else.
