Islamic extremism Political or Biblical?

“Apologists for extremism like to argue that Islamist hate us for good reason.  They attack the West because of the awful things the West has done to them, and because Europe has miserably failed to integrate its Muslim population.  But they also kill infidels next door.  It is clarifying to keep in mind that Islamist hatred is not confined to us.  Its real motive is the logic of fanaticism.”   Margaret Wente of the Canadian Globe and Mail describing the threat to the Middle East’s Christian population.  March 29, 2016.  Make no mistake to assume that they only target the Western nations.  They continually leave their countrymen and Muslims dead in their attacks.  This is because their roots of Islamic extremism do not lie in politics or geopolitical tension, but in the biblical history and what the Scripture has foretold will come.

Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar are the key players in this on going saga determining the final outcome in biblical proportions.

Abraham’s faith listening to Sarah, Sarah’s non compliance with God’s message and the appalling treatment of Hagar causing her to run away, have left us in this state of affairs…Genesis 16.

Now we ask ourselves, ” Is there compatibility between our cultures?  Can we coexist peacefully?”  The enlightening answer could be found when everyday  Muslims investigate the Quran and hadith , bypassing tradition and their imams’ interpretations, they read the violence of the jihad in the foundations of their faith.  While most Muslims are non-violent and do not take Islamic literature encouraging violence literally, the theology of extremism is there.  Bible prophecy indicates that this disastrous conflict will come to a head……taken from Beyond Today magazine.
