First Muslim College…Here in America

Where Islam Meets America...It Says It All, Doesn't It? (Photographer unknown)

Well, this was news to me, though it does not surprise me.  When I read the headline that the first Muslim college had just opened, I thought, “Hmmm, wonder what part of the world that is in?”  I wrongly assumed that it was NOT in the United States.  As I said, I wrongly assumed.  Turns out that it is not only in the United States, but it is in California, Berkeley to be exact (where else?).

Zaytuna College began this past summer, offering summer classes, and has become a full-fledged college for Muslims, by Muslims, and propagating Muslim (Islamic) theology.  Their motto or mission statement is a real catchy mouthful.

“Zaytuna College aims to educate and prepare morally committed professional, intellectual, and spiritual leaders, who are grounded in the Islamic scholarly tradition and conversant with the cultural currents and critical ideas shaping modern society.”

One wonders why they are even stating that they want to be conversant with the cultural currents and critical ideas shaping modern society, when Islam itself seeks to go backwards, proudly using Sharia Law as the vehicle to do so.

As one might imagine, the Web site is filled with flowery language, and accolades for Muhammad and Islam, stating that the former is “a religion based on a revelation from God. Despite its appropriateness for various times and places, it is a religion imbued with a deeply conservative spirit. This spirit helps to safeguard the integrity of the revelation. Muslims believe that the beloved Prophet Muhammad ﷺ conveyed the last message of God to humanity. Preserving the purity of that message poses one of the greatest challenges for the community of the faithful. Perhaps the best way to preserve that message is to implement it in one’s life. Hence, one of the central precepts of the Qur’an urges the believers to adhere closely to prophetic guidance. God mentions in that regard, Follow him [the Messenger of God] in order that you may be guided (7:158).

Read that again, will you?  Note that they admit they are “conservative.”  No, they are not merely conservative, but are actually radically conservative.

Part of the mandatory coursework is to become proficient in Arabic, the native language of Islam.  Other courses include:

  • Islamic history
  • Islamic law (Sharia)
  • Introduction to the Qur’an
  • Introduction to the Hadith
  • Arabic rhetoric
  • Islamic theology
  • Issues in Islamic theology
  • American Constitutional Law

There are four years worth of course.  The above are only a handful.  Note that they teach American Constitutional Law.  Why would they be interested in teaching that?  For the simple reason that if they know it, they can find ways to subvert it.  I know, I know, that sounds so paranoid.  Forgive me, but I guess I’m still smarting from 9/11…

The real tragedy though is that the graduates of Zaytuna will know infinitely more about our Constitution than the average citizen!  I suggest getting a pocket edition of the U.S. Constitution and reading it…thoroughly.  Bet you don’t even know how many amendments there are or WHAT they are…

Folks, unless you’ve been asleep, or living in a cave, Islam is here in America.  How does that make you feel?  While we have been playing and vacationing, Islam has been creeping in through the unwatched door.

There is a photo of the college’s Web site of Dr. James A. Donahue, the president of the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, offering Zaytuna his support and advice during his remarks at the first convocation.  It is simply amazing how many people have no clue about Islam, because they only want to think of “good” things.

I was reading one of Ted Nugent’s books today (yes, THAT Ted Nugent), and he was referencing John Lennon and others who believe that love is all we need.  The problem is that as long as there are people like Pol Pot, Hitler and tons of other tyrants in this world, as well as a religion that foists itself on people, robbing them of their freedom and treating them like garbage, love will not be able to exist.

Of course, we know that love as the world understands it is no love at all.  It is sentimentality in its worst form.  It is that sentimentality that Muslims and others count on in order to push their own agendas.

What this world needs now is definitely love, but only the love that truly matters, the love that comes from God and is filled with perfect justice and holiness.  Anything else is pure contrivance, advanced by our own emotions and sentimental feelings.

Where will Islam go from here?  More Muslim colleges, more mosques, more encroachment on American soil.  As a Christian, i feel an obligation to stand up against the onslaught because I believe Jesus would do the same thing.  I have no idea where that will get me, but it really doesn’t matter.  It seems that God has lit a fire within me and I’m content to let it grow into a full-fledged conflagration.

In case you are not aware, Christians are the enemy of Islam.  Islam has no room for Christians or Jews.  This country is moving toward a precipice in which Islam will destroy whatever is not part of it and that includes you…and me.

I am not concerned about my own death, because I know that the day and time is preordained by God.  I’m looking forward to the next life, when I will be able to worship at the very feet of Jesus, my Savior and Lord.

While I’m here, I also want to worship Him, in all that I do, and all that I say.  I don’t want to fight against Islam for the sake of fighting against Islam.  This world is going to be destroyed anyway, and God will (and is) be victorious.  I’m not worried about that.

What concerns me is that God likely has a whole bunch of Muslims He has earmarked for salvation.  Who is going to tell them if Christians do not become involved?

It would be nice if God saved everyone the way He saved the thief on the cross.  It doesn’t seem to happen though.  God actually uses people to spread the gospel. In a way, Islam has come to America, so for the authentic Christian, the mission field has come to us.  Don’t forget though, that they also consider America their mission field and they play for keeps.

How will they hear about Jesus Christ unless someone tells them about Him?  Who is going to tell them except authentic Christians?  Paul says it better in Romans:

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?  And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!” (Romans 10:13-15).

We should probably get started, don’t you think?
