Archbishop Anders Wejryd: Members of the incoming Synod got a surprising Christmas greeting during Advent. It concerns the book "Encounters with Islam," for which you wrote the foreword.

...The book contains a cursory examination of Islam's claims and suggestions on various questions for discussion: "Can we as Christians agree that Muhammad is the last prophet? Should we talk to each other as brothers and sisters in faith or we will continue to let our fear dominate and talk about each other?"

...The following statements give rise to questions: "People of faith are [i] basically quite similar, especially when they have grown up in an area with the same culture and language. There are probably more similarities between a Swedish Muslim and a Swedish Christian than between a Swedish Christian and a Christian from a completely different part of the world, with a different language and other habits."

At this point, Christians of all denominations should take to heart the Early Church's reference to the "Royal Priesthood of the Laity". It is the laity, the Christian persona, the living church gathered together, who must attest to and reassert the true Gospel of Christ, His Divinity, Crucifixion, Resurrection and the gift of the Holy Spirit. In the Middle Ages, it was not uncommon for the laity to strip a Bishop of his office and, literally, bar the doors of the church to him. There is only so much one can accredit to ignorance, dhimmitude, fear, bribery or theological laziness on the part of clergy unfit to be the living embodiment of the Good Shepherd. These false clergy are not passive in their conduct; they are conduits and enablers of evil while passing themselves off as 'bridge-builders'.

If the Archbishop has done his homework on Islam, he will know its Sword Verse (Ayt al-Saif) Sura 9 Verse 5:

"So fight the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war."

The New Testament also has its sword verse (Ephesians 6.12-17)

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Wherefore, take unto you the whole armour of God that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace. Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God."

Muslims creating tension at
Center for Adult Education

Their need to "pray" in common areas creates tension as this is a center for foreigners in general, learning Norwegian.

- We have no dedicated prayer rooms, so we allowed praying in common areas on Fridays, says headmaster Gøran Heimdal.

- Any kind of pressure is unaceptable, he continues.

The headmaster stresses the fact that foreigners from different countries have a different opinion of prayer, and says communication is difficult.

An imam has even been invited to the center recently.

Dawa hard at work....

Hard at work, in an area where one of the islands is called Haramsøy. Mohammedans did take slaves on the coasts of Norway, as well as in Iceland, so one can only guess how an island in this area got its name in earlier times. Coincidence, or something else?

Al Quds Day in Stockholm, Sergels Torg, 2009
Nazi salute speaks louder than words

Compare to this weekend's massive "antiracist" demonstration at Kärrtorp in Stockholm, where naive Swedes are being used as useful idiots to push monoculture down the troats of their own Swedish people while at the same time preventing them from speaking up against this invasion they as Europeans, are living.

Florida, USA - Mussolini had it right, you can build a mosque in Italy, when a Christian church gets built in Saudi Arabia. Imagine how different things would be if that rule had been followed up to today.
