I watched the Hollywood-style film of Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasabah being burned alive, his nose melting off his face, his blackened skin sizzling like a piece of hot fat in an iron skillet. I watched his brave brown eyes as he covered them with his hands, and as he knelt and gripped the hot bars of his cage. I watched as a human lump of fiery charcoal lurched backwards and succumbed to scorching, furious flames.
Meanwhile, a “fiery” Obama spoke to House Democrats a few days before at their annual retreat at Society Hill, Pennsylvania. As Obama began to enthusiastically list his accomplishments, his voice increased to a campaign stump speech crescendo as members rose to their feet in wild applause. In closing, he stepped back from the podium, took a drink of water and said “I’m fired up!” making reference to a famous catch phrase of his 2008 campaign. Perhaps next year Democrats should play the film of Moaz being burned alive while enjoying their kumbaya gathering.That incendiary documentary pretty much sums up Obama’s accomplishments as a world leader and will help the secular donkey’s get all fired up once again as they applaud their Demagogue’s deeds.
Nazi fires in 1933 were just kindling wood, sparks that would eventually erupt into a hellish Holocaust that killed millions. In 1938, “Race disgrace” determined Jews could not be German and the devil’s fires smoldered as a Nazi anti-Semitic campaign raged on and Jewish synagogues were burned to the ground. Eventually the hope was that Germany would be ‘judenrein’, or cleansed of Jews, the ‘final solution’ leading to the total extermination of men, women and children. Shower rooms became gas chambers, train rides burning death chambers where passengers stood on freight car floors coated with a layer of dehydrated calcium oxide, a substance that burned away the flesh, causing a slow and unmerciful death.
Anita Dittman, co-author of her book “Trapped in Hitler’s Hell” has been speaking about the Holocaust for more than three decades, telling everyone who will listen of her survival and how Jesus Christ helped her through her worst moments. At 87 years old, she still speaks to audiences large and small, recounting how her life as a five year old Jewish girl changed when Hitler came to power in1933, and of her nightmarish existence for the next 12-and-a half years living under Nazi rule. Because Christ is heavily ingrained in Dittman’s life and message, she is now barred from speaking at many public schools because the “C” word is not allowed. Some schools still allow her to speak, but it requires parents to sigh a form saying it is alright for their child to sit through a presentation with a religious theme, but more often, she is barred upfront from speaking. Anita’s thoughts on being barred? “This is how it started in Russia and Germany.” Dittman goes on to say that when anti-Semitism is openly practiced, anti- Christian bigotry is usually right around the corner. “There weren’t only Jews in the gas chambers. There were also Christians, Catholic priests, pastors,” “caged animals at the mercy of our keepers!”
Is Anita’s story any different from the horrific stories of a burning, caged pilot, or of clergy, men, women and children being beheaded, buried alive, raped, crucified and sold as slaves? The world is on fire…. and all Obama can get fired up about is himself?
January 27th marked the 70th Anniversary of the death camp at Auschwitz, probably the last major anniversary where a significant number of survivors who are now in their 90s or older would be present. Not a single high level American official attended, instead, on the very same day, Obama was in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to pay respects to King Salman and offer condolences for the death of King Abdullah. His stop there was significant because he rarely travels overseas to mark the death of a foreign leader. Others who joined Obama included John Fonda Kerry, Susan Rice, Muslim convert John Brennan, (the director of the CIA) and Gen. Lloyd Austin III. Democratic members of Congress also took part, including Senator Mark Warner of Virginia and Representatives Nancy Pelosi, Ami Bera of California, Eliot L. Engel, and Joseph Crowley of New York. The size of the delegation caught the attention of many in the region, why did it not catch the attention of the media in America?
“Hot beds” of Islamic terrorism are smoldering in Americas government, media, music, schools, military, churches and culture. The devil has become a co-conspirator with Islam and its intolerant, totalitarian, theocratic, cult-like religion. If there are peaceful American Muslims, it is time for them to speak out against Dhimmitude (the Muslim system of controlling non-Muslim populations conquered through jihad), time to condemn the Islamic practice of Taqiyya, or the permission to actively deceive non-Muslims, and time for them to stop trying to usurp the United States Constitution with their own Sharia Law.
A hear-no-evil, see-no-evil mentality is allowing the Father of Lies, to penetrate the very soul of America, posing a great danger to us all. We must stop listening to our politicians, media and global elites and hear what God has to say. In Proverbs 16:9, God says that “the heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.” It is time to step out of our government “cages” and with a righteous spirit, fulfill the unique purposes God gave us all at conception.
Doug Seegers, 62, is a homeless street singer whose “stoop” for years has been outside a Goodwill store in Nashville. Thousands walked by him in the street, averted their eyes, and kept on with their conversations. Doug realized that he had to be strong because “when you give up, that’s when it ends.” “Be strong with it and realize there’s gonna be times you’re gonna be led astray. The devil is a strong son of a bitch.” No one listened as he sang “I’m going down to the river, gonna wash my soul again.” Doug’s voice makes you “feel” something, a haunting voice and message that lives on in your spirit long after the song has ended. One day, a popular Swedish country star was in Nashville and discovered Doug; his song, ‘Going Down to the River’, reduced her to tears. On March 5th, 2014, Doug’s song aired in Sweden and became an instant hit. He would soon be flying in an airplane for the first time, own an iPhone, have a roof over his head, and become country music’s newest international superstar.
Anita Dittman and Doug Seegers share something in common; tremendous faith in Jesus Christ. Now is the time for all of us to “sing” in our own unique way, spread God’s message, return him to his rightful place, and help America become a superstar and guiding light for the entire world once again.
