On the American Family Association's website, Bryan Fischer says that the only thing that kept Iraq functioning under Saddam Hussein was support from Jesus
, and the Christians who ran the Ba'athist government. Saddam Hussien "needed Christians to help him run the country. Christians were the only decent, trustworthy, honest people he could find."
When Hussein was toppled, it left Iraq in the hands of voters, who are mostly Muslims and "Islam simply doesn’t produce men with the kind of character and integrity needed to run a country."
Fischer says America has offended God by creating a democracy "without the stabilizing values and presence of the Prince of Peace,"
it had under Saddam Hussien.
All this is due to President Bush’s naive short-sightedness about the true nature of Islam and what it does to the human spirit. I believe him to be an honest and decent man, but deceived and foolish when it came to Islam.
He genuinely seemed to believe that Islam is a religion of peace which had been hijacked by evil men. The truth is the other way round. Islam is a barbaric religion of violence and war. The only hijacking that’s been done is by those trying to fool people into thinking it’s something benign
[T]he Spirit of the Lord is absent in Islamic lands, [now that Saddam is gone] and the dark spirit that animates Islam has extinguished the spirit of liberty in those lands and in the hearts of their people. Their spiritual DNA has been altered in such a horrible way that what they hunger for is domination, destruction, and the death of the infidels. It is impossible for such a people to harbor a thirst for freedom apart from a massive spiritual awakening represented by an embrace of Christianity.
No, it is impossible to build a free nation on a platform of Islam. It was foolish and expensive even to try.
Islam is absent of Christian values and miraculous support from Jesus, just like secular nations where nobody really believes in Jesus - Like North-West Europe
, or should we say, the ruined wasteland that used to be North-West Europe
What the Bible says about Saddam Hussien
1 Everyone must submit himself to [Saddam Hussien] the governing authorities for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.
2 Consequently, he who rebels against [Saddam Hussien] the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.
3 For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority [Saddam Hussien]? Then do what is right and [Saddam Hussien] he will commend you.
4 For he [Saddam Hussien] is God's servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He [Saddam Hussien] is God's servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.
5 Therefore, it is necessary to submit to [Saddam Hussien] the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience.
6 This is also why you pay taxes, for [Saddam Hussien] the authorities are God's servants, who give their full time to governing.
7 Give everyone what you owe [Saddam Hussien] him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.
