GOD OF THE NEW COVENANT

In the arabic language, “Allahu Akbar” means: Allah is greatest. In Islam, this means that Allah is greater than all existance, from the smallest of atoms to the largest of galaxies and universes. It means Allah has all control in the whole universe and whatever happens is pre-written in ‘Al-lauh al-mahfooz’ or the preserved board (of events) in the high skies. It is normally said when muslims are on a battle campaign and both armies contact, or even seperately like the current soldier incident in Texas: he was heard wailing “Allahu Akbar!” during the shooting.
Did they ever. Radical Islam is still with us -- across America and around the world -- plotting, scheming, hating. These people know no constraints in their ferocity and their zealotry to murder innocent Americans wherever we live, work, worship and raise our families. It it not necessary or right that we condemn all of the Muslim faith -- but we should be able to count on moderate Muslims here to speak out against radical Islam. This happens rarely. Finally, it is imperative that we publicly deplore the dangerous extremist factions of Islam -- and that we commit resources, massive energy and constant prayer into stopping their assaults on America.
We will never forget.
May God help us -- the true God, the God of Abraham, and of the New Covenant, the infinite God of love and forgiveness -- Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen.
