  "Psalm 83: The Missing Prophecy Revealed"
  by Bill Salus

An ancient prophecy written over 3000 years ago reveals that the Arab states and terrorist populations, which presently share common borders with Israel, will soon confederate in order to wipe Israel off of the map. These enemies of Israel are depicted on the red arrows upon the book cover image, and their mandate is clear:

They have said, "Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more." (Psalm 83:4).

The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent 
by Dr. Erwin Lutzer


Islam is on the rise all over the West, including America. In this compelling new book, bestselling author Erwin Lutzer urges Christians to see this as both an opportunity to share the gospel and a reason for concern.
 We have now reached a tipping point--the spread of Islam is rapidly altering the way we live. These changes are cause for alarm, for they endanger our freedoms of speech and religion.

30 years ago Muslim leaders declared their intention to control Western Europe, including England. Many scoffed at such statements as "impossible." Those who disbelieved Islam's abilities to make good on their goal were wrong and we are watching the "peaceful" Islamic takeover of Europe before our eyes right now. Islam is currently filling a void created by the unsustainably low birthrate that the "free love" generation brought us. Our children and grandchildren will not only have to pay for debt run up due to the ideology of the left-leaning baby-boomers but unless there is an unheralded awakening, they could very easily be doing it under the unthinkable weight of Sharia Law before it's all over. As I write, I am frankly stunned to conclude that Islamic domination may be the price America and the West pay for our decades-long determination to live for ourselves in constant rejection of God and His principles. I pray that I am wrong, but the feminist movement, abortion on demand, and the accompanying war on the family have opened the way for a Muslim takeover and here's how.

Europe is now living with the inevitable fact that without a miracle Islamic domination is only a matter of time. In the May 30, 2012, edition, Forbes magazine reported that the average birthrate in Europe is now an unsustainable 1.38 for each couple. How low is this? For example, in Germany, the birthrate in 2012 was only 8.33 per 1000 people. Governments and economies have never and cannot now survive without dramatically more people. It's a simple matter of mathematics. Grasping the result of the problem (but with no desire of dealing with the cause), Europeans have turned to immigration to boost their population. The result is that for more than the past 22 years, a shocking 90% of ALL immigration to Europe has been ISLAMIC. Now, with an average of 8.1 children per family, Muslims in France are producing over 425% more children than the French! An astounding 45% of people twenty and under in Paris are now Muslim. In the last thirty years the Muslim population of Great Britain has increased by a shocking 3000% and has led to the building of over 1000 mosques. In fact, mosques now outnumber churches and cathedrals across Europe and, as Islam flexes its collective muscle worldwide, its leaders are undoubtedly emboldened. They surely know these facts and understand our society's obvious inability to resist.


Just as they predicted they'd take Europe, Imams made similar claims of a "Muslim America" three decades ago. Apparently Europe didn't wake up soon enough. The question is, will we? We are not yet in the position Europe is. America still stands as the bastion of personal liberty and, yes, we still have the Constitution, which Islamists such as the Organization of Islamic Cooperation are systematically trying to circumvent. But how long can we hold on in the somewhat fragile and weakened state in which we find ourselves today? The Islamists didn't attempt to hide their intentions to infiltrate, establish, and then control America and the West. We just weren't listening and, worst of all, we've stopped listening to God. Christians need to come to grips with where we are today. This is a time for understanding, action, and prayer. Most of all, the answer is forthright evangelism,and isn't that exactly what Jesus instructed us to do and the very reason why we are here.

Below are a few recent examples that reflect the intentions of those leading Islam here in the West.


CSCOPE Curriculum (being used in 70-80% of Texas schools) teaches "Allah is the Almighty God," the Boston Tea Party was conducted by "terrorists" and frames 9-11 attackers  as "freedom fighters." Concerned parents told they could not see curriculum and were accused of being "bigots." Read here and here.


Dearborn, Michigan, McDonald's Restaurant sued over alleged Halal (Muslim sensitive) meals. $700,000 awarded. Meat served in Halal meals must be slaughtered in the name of Allah. Read here


Skokie, Illinois, drops Veterans Day holiday but adds Muslim celebration of EID. Read here

Pressured by Islamic leaders*, Obama Administration eliminates mention of "Islamic Terrorism" or any negative mention of Islam, including simple quotes from the Qur'an - from CIA, FBI, Homeland Security, and US Military Training Manuals (Nov. 2011). Read here.

* Read letter containing list of complaints and demands from Islamic groups to (then) Deputy National Security Advisor (now) CIA Director, John Brennan here


In March 2011, Resolution 16/18 passed the UN General Assembly at the behest of the powerful 57 member Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), making it a hate crime if a second party is incited to violence because of speech opposing the religious beliefs of others. Though it contradicts the First Amendment of the US Constitution, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton amazingly helped write the UN Resolution! In December 2011, Clinton hosted the UN Secretary General and an OIC delegation in Washington to discuss implementation of UN Resolution 16/18 in the United States.

From Eric


I highly recommend Dr. Erwin Lutzer's courageous new book, The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent. Dr. Lutzer's analysis and warnings about Islam's current encroachment in America concur with the overwhelming research I and others have conducted. His well documented, courageous approach boldly conveys a message that simply must be heard - before it is too late. While some well-known megachurch and evangelical leaders foolishly advance the notion of conciliation and compromise with Islam, Lutzer presents a compelling case as to why this tactic only serves to embolden radical Islamists while further weakening the Church in this pivotal hour.  


It is my prayer that Dr. Lutzer's research and insights will serve as the wake-up call that Americans, in particular the Church in America, desperately need.
