US centers of Islamic activity form interesting map

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and here are two that will start a conversation for sure. These two maps of Islamic activity were created a number of years apart by different investigators.

I won’t add anything other than I live in a state that is deep blue and was home to Mohammed Atta and several other 9-11 conspirators.

However, I do have a question for all you folks out there with a “Coexist” bumper sticker on your Prius: how many churches and synagogues are in Saudi Arabia?

I’ve had the Deyo map for years and never could find an update. In the name of “tolerance” we are allowing these 7th century nutjobs to take over our country, along with the Chinese. The ultimate goal is to destroy America and we’re just letting them do it.

Islam is a curse for apostasy, hypocritical faith nor American politics will not make it go away. Read “Unveiling The Qur’an, by Love” on Amazon. The author shows where Islam is in the Bible. He shows where Islam fits in the dates and character described in Daniel and Revelation 13, plus Muhammad openly confessed to being this beast in The Qur’an! All the dates match up. Hitler was the first horn of the second beast system (Revelation 13:11), that system will have a remnant who will surface. Answer this: Who is a remnant of Hitler? And you have the name… Read more »

There’s another great book by Dr. Mark Gabriel (a pseudonym) -I read it years ago, and he breaks it all down. He taught this crap in Egypt until he realized what it meant and then he converted to Christianity.

Bet the correlations could be made with same map for “honor”less murders, beheadings, upsurge in violence agains Jews, and other sundry horrors indicating this realm of horror. How is that Canadian or Mexican “map” looking?

helochappy
Guest
I believe the correlation with these maps are that the “locations” coincide with population hubs. Honeslty, it’s not suprising that more densely populated areas have a higher concentration of muslims/mosques. As with nearly any other demographic, these results would be similar. But looking at the “terrorist activity” chart, it is a big concern because it seems to be drawn to those same areas. I would expect it as with the demographics, but from a “big hit” perspective, being in a rural ranch in Nevada doesn’t necessarily justify a high stakes terror plot.

North Korea sounds like it would be more up your alley, why don’t you move there? I like how you trust our government to spy on everything one group does but don’t think they’d eventually do it to you. Maybe we give the next Republican president power to do this and a Democrat president gets elected and has the same powers. Still fine with that? Let’s let him spy on all conservative owned businesses because they’re fighting a war on progressivism!

If you want to know the mind of Muslims, read the Koran. I have and in it they are commanded to convert the infidels and barring that, kill them. They are also commanded to go to all areas of the world and breed profusely, with the intent of eventually populating the world with nothing but Muslims. They know the can’t beat us militarily, so they placed one of their own in the highest office of our land. He had been groomed for years for this.

I’ve been saying this for years. If the politicians and PC crowd continue to allow this cancer to fester and grow, then there will eventually come a day (50 years? A hundred?

One of these days, these people will be given a signal and they will rise up on all Americans who are not Muslims. The day is coming.

As a strategy, would it not make sense to place your forces in certain locations as to insure an optimal influence and take-over of a country. Look at the darkest locations: California, Texas, Illinois, New York and Florida. Highly populated areas and easily influenced. If you can take control of these key areas the rest of the country will fall without a fight, except the lightest colored areas. But then, they are the least populated and will have no bearing on a their actions. Mark my words, this is a full on assault on the US and everyone is missing… Read more »

“How many churches and synagogues are in Saudi Arabia?” – NONE!

Christian persecution is one of the most under told stories of our time. When Christians get slaughtered in the Middle East there is radio silence from the MSM. However, when someone accidentally drops a BLT in front of Mosque it makes the local news as some sort of hate crime.

John Halgren

I’m as conservative as ANYONE, but what the saudis do has no bearing on how we should carry ourselves.

What I am calling for is the liberal media to report what is happening to Christians (and all other religions) in Islamic countries. There has been radio silence! It is illegal to practice Christianity in Saudi Arabia and many other Islamic countries. People should be outraged that in 2014 there are still countries that persecute people for practicing their faith. Yet, the UN and the liberal media do not say a word.

I can’t argue that the media falls far short of balanced coverage. They cover what pays the bills, shock pieces. I ignore them for what they are.
What is concerning me is the under lying tone of oppression I am reading here today. To protect our own religious freedoms, we must protect all. If we allow some to ‘interpret’ other religions, then ours is open to interpretation by others.
The rule of law is the only real way to continue this nation above all other nations.

Do you think jihad cares about religious “freedom” or “rule of law”? If you want to maintain the principles of liberty and the rule of law, then you must fight to eradicate Islam in this country.

Islam is much more of an ideology than a religion. Sir, you should do a little research on what it’s followers believe and how they are instructed to deal with their enemies. Muslims are laughing at statements like your’s because that attitude is making their rise to power much easier. Think of America as a lobster in a pot of water. Islam controls the burner and is heating up that water slowly and that lobster will be dead before he thinks to jump out of the pot.

When the President is a muslim and tells the FBI they cannot do surveillance of mosques. Then tells the FBI that it is okay to do surveillance of Christian and Jewish Synagogues. It actually answers a whole lot of questions. Of course Holder would never pursue any legal action against them. So they have a free reign to do whatever the choose to. When and if civil war breaks out. Remember these maps the will become very important

This is a map of population centers. It’s not relevant. There are more people there, so there will be more mosques and there will be more terrorist activity. There’s plenty of relevant data, let’s not water it down with renamed population maps.

more like freedom of Muslims to kill everyone and give excuses along the way like freedom of religion. If Muslims truly knew how to exercise freedom you wouldn’t be wearing that cover, Muslims are so free that they are bound by their lust towards women?

Your religion is a religion of the law that permits ‘freedoms.’ You understand freedom on that level.

Start by ensuring Muslims in American have the same rights as everyone else. Make sure they know that forcing someone to bow 5 times a day is a form of enslavement of the masses.

Nonsense. You can’t trust our government or courts to be rational. They are liberal and make every attempt to be “politically correct” which is a liberal term for “don’t hurt their feelings”.

We have had a Supreme Court judge who said we should consider other countries laws when deciding court cases (Sharia). We are in danger.

Deuteronomy does NOT state to worship G’d through Jesus Christ. I am always fascinated by how Christians reinterpret the bible.

The Old Testament was written for the Jews, it has since been manipulated to fulfill your needs.

Deborah, to make a wide encompassing statement such as, “I am always fascinated by how Christians reinterpret the bible.” is only meant to inflame and incite argument. I think it’s pretty clear that in Christian theology it is clear that Jesus is God and was with God the Father in the very beginning in the book of Genesis so I’m not sure why you made your point? Do you want to argue Christian theology? Just a question… I’m not interested but I’m sure someone will take the bait.

Deborah Cyrus

Yes, I absolutely argue Christian theology. I’m Jewish, I know and understand the bible (the old testament) and no, it is not clear that “Jesus was with God the Father ” in Genesis. And let’s for a moment assume that I did believe that (which I do not), then all the rules that G’d sets forth in the Torah (the 1st 5 books) particularly in Leviticus, were meant to be followed. Christians do not follow any of the laws set forth in the old testament. They do not observe the rules, they do not observe the holy days yet they… Read more »

Catholics DO NOT worship Mary. They honor her as the mother of Jesus but do not WORSHIP her.

William Jones

You pray to the “virgin” Mary, as well as the saints, which is having another “God” before the real God. To be factual, Mary was not a virgin before she died, as the Bible has references to Jesus’ siblings. That takes nothing away from the significance of the virgin birth, of course. The saints, while very good Christians, also should not be the targets of your prayers, for the same reason.

John Halgren

The key word in that passage is ‘YOU’. It doesn’t say YOU and your neighbors and if your neighbors don’t have the same view shun them.
The Christ I know preached love. The Christ I know talked of tolerance… does the phrase 70 times 7 mean anything? Your singular view is yours and yours alone. Just as is your relationship with Christ.

The difference here is that the Muslims will shun you. Christians don’t shun unbelievers. They try to show them the way. It’s up to you if you accept Jesus Christ or not. Muslims won’t be so tolerable.

And sadly, much of the posting here shows that Christians do shun unbelievers….

And how does the act of being shunned by a muslim impact how we should think about the direction of our nation? Freedom is an ideal to be protected. Not freedom for some, freedom for all. Any other way and it’s not freedom.

John, ok so let’s take it from your view. I have no problem with others worshiping as they please as that is one of our rights here in America “Freedom of Religion”. So Muslims are allowed 30 mins to an hour in school and a room for their prayers, ok that is fine..but my daughter bows her head in prayer before her meal, nothing out loud, just a simple bowing of her head to say Thank you and she is in trouble because she prayed in school and offended someone. Is this right? See what you are saying is well… Read more »

If your school board does that to your daughter, either fire them (don’t re-elect them) or pursue them in the courts. Is it ‘fair’ that you have to sue to preserve a basic right, no. But the reason we have a judicial system is to right wrongs. I will turn this around, If CNN posted a map showing Christian populations and violence/terror group correlations, wouldn’t it miff you? That equal standard MUST be upheld both ways. That’s TRULY the only way we will survive. There can be no ‘affirmative action’ type response to religious oppression, either way. So I ask… Read more »

Oh and sorry my situation was handled very quickly and efficiently. I simply reminded my school of my children’s 1st Amendment rights and the fact that she indeed does have the right to bring a bible to school, and in her free time read it or discuss it with other students if they so choose. We also spoke on the fact that as long as she is not leading a group prayer and disturbing other people she may bow her head and pray as it is her right.

I feel John that in a way we are saying the same things. I agree with things and people being treated equally. If they post this map of mosques and violence terror issues, then fine publish a map with Christian churches and where there is a correlation of violence and terror issues. I am agreeing with you in that, what I am saying is right now there is no balance or equality. IT seems our society has gone so far in the other direction of taking care of the underdog and the minority, that the underdog/minority becomes the majority, which… Read more »

People with this problem have sued unsuccessfully. Keep up with current events. Also, Christians will not kill. Muslims do. And don’t group people who just call themselves Chriatians to actual believers in Jesus Christ. By their fruits ye shall know them. Does it not bother you, or maybe you missed the second map showing the Islamic terrorist network? It’s very scary to me. Maybe you’re one of those that thinks we all have to go someday. Well, you just might get your wish sooner than later.

“Christians will not kill” Absorb what you just said.

“actual believers in Jesus Christ” Have you been appointed as the judge to determine who these people are?

I am one of those people that believe in freedom, and that freedom should be defended by all for all. I give no space for the intolerant. I see a large group of intolerant people here today.

Christianity isn’t a religion its a cult that wants all homosexuals dead.

Martha Cortez

We don’t want them dead. Don’t be ignorant. Our job is to witness to them and all other sinners to accept Jesus Christ and turn away from sin. They’re the ones who want to get more rights than Chriatians by forcing them to do things that go against our beliefs. If they don’t want to accept the gospel, then so be it, but don’t cram your lifestyle down our throats. Live and let live. We don’t need to know what goes on in your bedroom. We don’t want to know what goes on in any bedroom, for that matter.

Not ignorance, on my part at least. Ed’s part, yes. I just replaced two of his words with something comparable.

Note I do not believe what I stated, though there is a lot of “kill them” in the bible. Them being unbelievers, etc.

tlsjrsjas2011
Guest

If you bothered reading my disclaimer, you’ll see that I don’t believe that. The comment I made is as ignorant as the person I replied to that said Muslim isn’t a religion.

Sad you say you don’t need to know what goes on in the bedroom, when that is the very reason its “in our face” today. If it weren’t for someone peeking into a bedroom to see homosexual activity, it might not be “in our face” as often as it is now.

FYI I don’t believe this. Muslim is a religion as much as Christianity is. If you call Muslim a cult, then thus is Christianity.

And this is an example of our problem. You don’t care about solving anything, just acting like an idiotic bigot. You must either not know what defines a religion or are just talking out of your ass because you’re no better than the fundamentalists you disdain. In fact, you’re probably one of them. I swear I have never met an intelligent right winger. 99% of you are just plain old stupid and proud of it.

Obviously you either know nothing of Islam or its history and willingly defend it in ignorance of its impetus. But, that is not unusual among the sheeple leftists of America. Get back to us when you can refute this information! http://thereligionofpeace.com/

We have met the enemy and it is Islam.

Next time you and your bro- friend get together, you may want to ask Putin what happened to all the synagogues in Russia since he’s been PM. And why he didn’t condemn the harassment of Jews in eastern Ukraine earlier this month.
Also, you know there was a memo written by a underling FBI agent warning about Muslims taking flying lesson in AZ.

The highly honed tactics of deception, Muruna, “telling Lies”. Muslims show no discernible signs of being deceitful because there is no feeling of guilt. In their minds they are doing exactly what Allah wants them to do.There is no possible way any Muslim can be trusted, ever There is no conceivable way that Islam and the West can coexist..Muslims are like tame Piranha fish. Potentially lethal to the unsuspecting.
If you think any assimilation of Muslims in the west is possible should be forced to spend a few years residing in some Islamic hellhole.

Telling lies is taqqiya, its ordained in the queeran and was used by abu bakr to kill another but was allowed to lie to him by mohammad to get close enough as a friend to slash his throat.

Next I suppose we’ll be seeing an article from the left saying church services are really congregations of people discussing how to better molest children. A few priests do more than just baptisms and the entire religion is demonized, but heaven forbid we say anything on TV or in printed media regarding the correlation between terrorism and population density…

Or report the child abuse the pubic school teachers have done. We have heard very little about child molestation in the public schools. They do the same thing the Church did and just let them move to another school district.

A friend of mine has a best friend who is a Muslim. They are adult women with children who have been friends for about five years. The Muslim woman and her family appear to be well integrated into the community. Recently my friend asked her what she would do if her Imam declared Jihad against non-Muslims in this city. Without pausing, her Muslim friend very calmly said, “well, I would kill you.”

Martha Cortez
Guest

Wow. I bet she wasn’t kidding either, my friend. There is such a thing as people actually believing and practicing their religion faithfully. Unfortunately, the Libtards call that hate when you merely try to tell tem that Jesus loves you. We won’t kill you if you don’t believe, but a muslim will kill you come the time.

“That means I must love it and defend it for everyone.” John Halgren
You apparently don’t think too deeply. We all love freedom, so why would you defend a group that doesn’t believe in freedom? Jihadists don’t believe in freedom, they believe in a form of slavery & enforce it thru brutality & murder. Do you believe in giving them that “freedom”?

betsey1009
Guest

you could simply substitute ‘the banner of Islam’ for ‘christianity’ and it would be the same thing. As far as religion is concerned, why do you believe what you believe? Because that’s what you grew up with. christians very neatly forget the holocaust, the spanish inquisition, the ku klux klan and the crusades. If you grew up where they grew up, and you were taught what they were taught, you would believe what they believe and you would do what they do.

John Halgren
Guest

Hmmm… I’m trying to make sense of this.
Helping to create the State of Israel isn’t forgetting the holocaust. The crusades aren’t forgotten. What does the KKK have to do with this discussion? They were condemned and jailed.
BUT, those who didn’t break the law (KKK members) are still allowed to exercise their rights.
Spanish Inquisition…. applicable to a discussion about religious freedoms in America…. mulling this over.
Did you read my entire comment?

pmconcc

No they didn’t forget those years—they LEARNED from them! What have Muslims learned? Do Christians hate? You betcha! They hate other people that mindlessly kill women & children over ‘religion’. Tell us about the last time the Middle East came to the aid of national crisis in other lands like the U.S. has? When did they give to the poor? The truth is, they ARE the poor & disenfranchised due to their way of life. Their lives are an un-ending sacrifice for an ideology that does nothing more than oppress them & make life a living hell!

WHY are Christians on the hook for HITLER’S action????

Just because a person declares Christianity as their faith doesn’t make it so, as in Hitler’s case. It’s a well know fact that Hitler and his cronies were deeply involved in the occult.

For the same reason that this bigoted racist who wrote this column puts all muslims on the hook for a few wackos.

Kathy McKinny

HAHAHAHAHA, that made me laugh SOOOO hard!! If you knew ANYTHING about muslims, you would know that the actions of the “extremists” are EXACTLY what the Koran calls mulims TO DO!! If you want to find some bigoted racist, LOOK IN THE MIRROR. Col. West is a far from being racist as on can get.

Brendan
Guest

Where did you study the Koran?
…or are you just repeating what you read on the internet?

What is the difference between a Sunni Muslim… and a Shia Muslim, and a Suffi Muslim… and a Wahabist Muslim… and all the other sects of Islam that are currently fighting each other?

Do you know?
Do you care?
Or do you just want to blame all muslims for the actions of a few, regardless of what sect they belong to, because you believe all Muslims are the same and you learned everything about muslims from angry internet sites?

betsey1009

And Deuteronomy 17 calls for all christians to kill non-believers. So if you’re not out there killing non-believers, I guess you’re a bad christian.

When there stated belief system involves killing everyone who doesn’t believe what they believe, that is not religion. That is tyranny by terrorism. Your comment is ridiculous. Do they believe in freedom of religion? How about freedom of their women? What about gays? You are an idiot.

nope. nope. nope. When a belief system kills everyone who doesn’t believe what they believe, that’s called religion.

That is NOT a legitimate religion. A legitinate religion will be peaceful and tolerate other belief systems. They may try to convert people from other belief systems, but NEVER kill them, not if they are a legitimate religion.

Okay then name ONE religion that is peaceful and tolerates other belief systems. And if you name christianity, you’re a big fat liar.

Are we supposed to ignore the egregious acts of Muslims in America today and say they are just practicing their freedom of religion?

Brendan

What egregious acts?
You want to punish all American muslims for the actions of a handful?
If so, you’d better be ready to punish most religions if those are your standards.

Just shootings and bombings, you know like Fort Hood, twice, and the Boston Marathon. I’m sure other people could list a whole lot more. Perhaps you should read up on what is going on throughout Europe in countries where the Muslim population is starting to over take the non-Muslim population to better understand the issue. There is no freedom of religion for non-Muslims.

toejam

Exactly! Daily executions of Christians are occurring in the middle-east. Even one of our own citizens is imprisoned in Iran, Saeed Abedini who is a Christian minister. He was taken prisoner for simply visiting his family in Iran. So much for Muslim tolerance.

Brendan

You cite the examples of two men in Boston and one man in Texas… none of whom were working with any organization.
So these three people are reason enough to punish all American muslims?

It occurs to me there is a fundamental concept you do not seem to know and understand. In Muslim majority countries, the government IS the faith.

Good to know. How do you propose we figure out which Muslims are peaceful and which ones are not so we can avoid future bombings and deaths?

SweetMarmot

The so-called “Christian” Identity religion is NOT a Christian group. If you check out their theology and compare it to Biblical theology, you will see massive differences. They twist the Bible every which way but loose, and they preach and practice something that is nothing like what Christ preached. Just because they call themselves Christian doesn’t mean they are.

Brendan
Guest

And what are the differences between Shia muslims, Sunni muslims, Suffi muslims, Wahabist muslims, and so on?
There are many sects of Christianity and many sects of Islam.

That was the point i was trying to illustrate.

Holding all muslims accountable for the actions of a few members of some sects is just as absurd as holding all Christians accountable for teh actions a of a few members of particular sects

toejam

McVeigh was NOT a Christian!!! Just because he made the claim of following some white-supremacist group, doesn’t mean he followed the teachings of Christ or behaved in a “Christ-like” manner.

And many muslims would argue that the terrorists are not true muslims.
that’s my point.
Why punish all followers of all sects of a religion for the actions of a few followers of a few sects?

respectful conservative

I didn’t say punish but I would monitor.

I’m not falling for your red herring. We’re not talking about Tim McVeigh who was, as I recall, put to death. What’s going on with the surviving Boston bomber? You know, the guy given asylum in our country to avoid persecution in his home country? How about the shooter in the “work place violence” at Fort Hood? You call that equal protection under the law?

Surly Curmudgen

Islam is a protection racket for megalomaniacs that uses a contrived religion as one of their tools to terrorize and control their people. The institution is contra-survival for the species and must be eradicated. Doing so will require a multi generation effort of at least 60 to 100 years of education provided for most and removal of that element which is intent on continuing the terror.

Zach Gilson
Guest

So you’re saying that we should combat these ‘terrorist’ religions by becoming terrorists ourselves. Just because a small faction is composed of extremists, doesn’t mean that all adherents are extreme as well. If that were true, all Christians would be labeled terrorists due to groups like the Ku Klux Klan.

KKK is a creation of the Democratic Party, formed for the purpose of intimidating and preventing Republicans from voting.

Nonsense! Education provided in a manner that can not be blocked and removal of the insane from positions of control or influence are not terrorist actions.
Now you can try telling me that Islams leaders/teachers are not rabidly insane while they call for death to the great Satan and all infidels.

betsey1009

The Ku Klux Klan is the tip of the hatred christians have spewed throughout time. What about the crusades, the Spanish inquisition, the holocaust, the Salem witch trials, etc., etc., etc. christians think they’re the most persecuted religion, when in reality, they’ve done most of the persecuting.

Those were NOT real Christians. They were only pretending to be Christians to get the respectability that they didn’t deserve.

betsey1009

oh, I see. So you can pick and choose which people are ‘real christians’ but anyone who is a muslim, whether they are a terrorist or not is really a terrorist just because he or she is muslim. That’s childish and ignorant reasoning.

You need to back up your statement “christians…..when in reality, they’ve done most of the persecuting.” Is this just your opinion?

betsey1009

haha really? The Ku Klux Klan is the TIP of the HATRED the CHRISTIANS have SPEWED throughout TIME. The CRUSADES, the SPANISH INQUISITION, the HOLOCAUST, the SALEM WITCH TRIALS. And then there’s the hatred between England and France between two types of christians: the catholics and the protestants. These are not my opinions, these are FACTS. As the old joke goes, ‘THE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE WAS NEITHER HOLY NOR ROMAN. EXPLAIN.’

So I guess you lump Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Corrie Ten Boom, Mother Teresa and Kaj Munk with the “so-called” Christians in your statement?

betsey1009

Not at all. I don’t know why you’d think that. They preached love and tolerance. Well, I don’t know who Kaj Munk was, so I can’t say that for him/her. My point was that christians are so good at spewing hatred then saying, ‘who us? we’re the good people’.

toejam

But those that I mentioned WERE true Christians. Those that you have mentioned were NOT true followers of Christ.
