Following the latest media reports regarding the detention of two Frenchmen suspected of terrorist activities, we must begin to understand why these individuals are bent on destroying society way of life.

Terrorism has plagued society for as long as anyone can remember, but we never experience any such atrocities until it came home in full force on September 11 when the world and the US communities realize how serious this blot on our environment was and gave the planet a vivid wake up call.

The vast majority of the world blames terrorist activities on the fanatical aspects of the Muslim faith.  But in order to fully understand why Islamic fanatics are the way they are today we have to venture back into history.

Irrespective of what some in the world believe the Bible document the inception of the Islamic faith and where it originated from. To fully appreciate we must go back to the book of Genesis and the birth of Abraham’s children Ishmael and Issac.

Genesis chapter 17 verse 15 – 19 And God said to Abraham, “As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name. I will bless her, and moreover, I will give you a son by her. I will bless her, and she shall become nations; kings of peoples shall come from her.” Then Abraham fell on his face and laughed and said to himself, “Shall a child be born to a man who is a hundred years old? Shall Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear a child?” And Abraham said to God, “Oh that Ishmael might live before you!” God said, “No, but Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac. I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his offspring after him.

We must understand that Abraham is the father of both the Arab and the Jewish nation, the Arab nation through Ishmael and the Jewish nation through Issac.  However, what must be noted is that God bless Issac as the anointed child.

Ishmael and Issac never did get along and the current conflict in the Middle East whereby the Arabs believe that Israel stole their land is not true, the descendants of Ishmael believe that the land is their’s when in fact the land was given to Abraham, Issac and their descendants, so biblically there is no basis for the Arabs to believe that the Israeli should surrender any land owned by them to the Arab nation.

God already told us in his teachings in Genesis 16 verse 12 that Ishmael will  be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.

What we are seeing today in the world regarding terrorism is a misguided belief by the proponents of the Arab world that they have a right to behave in the antisocial way that they are doing and they are following archaic laws in the stoning of women to death for such thing like adultery which is not ordained by God.

This concept that those who do not believe in the Islamic faith are referred as ‘infidels’ is nothing more than a misrepresentation and that ideology have no basis in religion or in  God’s instructions to mankind.

There is no doubt that we will defeat terrorist and terrorism because they are not acting in God’s laws are instructions they have taken the archaic beliefs of Ishmael and as descendants they cannot come to terms with the fact that they are not ordained by God and never will, we have a future of peace to look forward to away from terrorism and as long as we believe that God’s word is sacrosanct this world will survive.
