There's more, and it spells out a number of concerns. I don't drive into that neighborhood -- have no reason to -- and it's a "for sure" that I will now stay further away from it. Meanwhile, please read the article, found here: https://pjmedia.com/lifestyle/great-news-minneapolis-neighborhood-begins-broadcasting-islamic-call-to-prayer-over-loudspeakers-five-times-daily/Ilhan Omar is thrilled, and you know what that means: you should be, too. A cultural line has been crossed. According to the Star Tribune, "the Muslim call to prayer will be broadcast the traditional five times a day in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis, beginning with the start of Ramadan this week and continuing through the end of the religious holiday in May. It will be the first time the call to prayer, commonly broadcast from mosques in Muslim nations, will be heard in Minnesota.â€
This is only supposed to be for Ramadan, but letâ€™s be serious. In todayâ€™s Minneapolis, in todayâ€™s paradise of multiculturalism, what are the chances that the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood will stop broadcasting the adhan, the Islamic call to prayer, once Ramadan is over? About as good as the chances that Nancy Pelosi will endorse Trump and become his running mate.
Yet the implications of this broadcast call to prayer, beyond the expected hosannas from the usual proponents of globalism and multiculturalism, are ominous.
Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, a friend and supporter of Ilhan Omar, is no doubt as happy as she is about this, as it demonstrates how "inclusiveâ€ his city is. And thatâ€™s wonderful, but when the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood broadcasts the Islamic call to prayer, what exactly is it broadcasting? The adhan, prayed in Arabic, repeats "Allahu akbarâ€ six times, "I testify that there is no god but Allahâ€ three times, and "I testify that Muhammad is Allahâ€™s prophetâ€ twice.
Dr. Gavin Ashenden, former chaplain to the British queen, who resigned his position in protest against a Qurâ€™an reading in a Scottish church, observed that "the Muslim call to prayer is a dramatic piece of Islamic triumphalism. It proclaims Islamâ€™s superiority over all other religions, and in so doing casts Jesus in the role of a charlatan and a liar. The Muslim god, Allah, is unknowable and has no son. Jesus was, therefore, a fraud in claiming He and the Father are one.â€
Is the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis really wise to broadcast repeatedly a declaration of the superiority of Islam, a faith that directs its adherents to make war against Christians and other non-Muslims and subjugate them as inferiors under the hegemony of believers (cf. Qurâ€™an 9:29)?
Is the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis wise to broadcast the cry "Allahu akbar,â€ beloved of jihad terrorists the world over? Chief 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta wrote this in his letter to himself before carrying out his jihad mission: "When the confrontation begins, strike like champions who do not want to go back to this world. Shout, â€˜Allahu Akbar,â€™ because this strikes fear in the hearts of the non-believers.â€ This is why the Fort Hood jihad killer, Nidal Malik Hasan, shouted it as he shot thirteen Americans in November 2009, and why so many other jihadis have used it essentially as an announcement that non-Muslims are about to die.
