America’s National Security Advisor, H.R. McMaster, is responsible for protecting our nation, yet he doesn’t even know the Islamic State is Islamic.
Things were supposed to be different with the Trump administration. He promised to drain the swamp, but in his single most important duty of protecting our nation, he appointed H.R. McMaster as his chief advisor on national security issues, a man who doesn’t even know who our enemies are. McMaster is peddling the same globalist lies repeated by previous administrations, both Republican and Democrat, claiming Islam is a peace loving religion hijacked by a few extremists.
Consider his recent comments:
In an all-hands meeting of the NSC on February 23, 2017, three days after his appointment as NSC Director, McMaster said jihadist terrorists are not true to their professed religion and that the use of the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism” does not help the US in working with allies to defeat terrorist groups:
“The phrase is unhelpful because terrorist organizations like ISIS represent a perversion of Islam, and are thus un-Islamic,” McMaster said, according to a source who attended the meeting. (Source: GatestoneInstitute.org)
It wasn’t the first time he’s made such absurd claims. He was only repeating the same things he has said previously.
On December 3, in an interview with Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace, McMaster stated that “we make sure we never buy into or reinforce the terrorist narrative, this false narrative that this is a war of religion”. He followed this by elaborating on the criminality and supposed secularism of Muslim terrorists:
“Those who adhere to this ideology are really irreligious criminals who use a perverted, what the President has called a wicked interpretation of religion, in an effort to recruit young, impressionable people to their cause, to foment hatred”.
In taking that stance, McMaster has broken with many members of his own staff, several of whom he was later to fire, and with the Trump administration itself. This desire to deny a connection between Islam and terrorism or to distinguish between a “pure” Islamic religion and “perversions” of it had been for many years a characteristic of the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations, as well as Hillary Clinton’s tweets, when “this has nothing to do with Islam” was an oft-repeated refrain. (Source: GatestoneInstitute.org)
Every American should be outraged by McMaster’s statements because the Islamic State is a serious threat to our national security. They are clearly Islamic and their Islamic faith is clearly the source of the problem because the Koran repeatedly calls for the murder of innocent people for the crime of rejecting Islam. It is not a peace loving religion and anyone claiming it is should not be trusted with our national security.
Instead of being outraged, millions of Americans agree with these lies without even investigating the facts because we have believed another lie, the message of tolerance, which claims we should not only tolerate the horrible crimes committed by Muslims, but also all sorts of immoral, perverted behavior, which is the true goal of the tolerance message. What they’re really saying is, “Don’t hold me accountable for my unrighteous deeds. Don’t shine the light of God on my darkness. Just embrace my perverted lifestyle and celebrate my sins.”
If the messengers of tolerance were truly concerned about tolerance, they would practice it consistently with everyone, but instead they only tolerate unrighteousness while refusing to tolerate righteousness, including anyone who acknowledges the one true and living God. Any other so-called god is fine with them, but not the God of our Lord Jesus Christ because He holds them accountable for their evil deeds by requiring them to repent and walk uprightly in His sight, which is the only way to eternal life. They find that intolerable.
America does not need more tolerance, we need more righteousness. By rejecting God, we have rejected the only light in this dark world. We have chosen to walk in darkness to hide our evil deeds (John 3:19-20). As a result, we are now stumbling in the darkness, doing crazy things like trusting our national security to a blind man. Unless we repent, it’s only a matter of time before we fall.
The ancient Chinese military strategy book, The Art of War, stresses the importance of knowing your enemy, but Americans are trusting their national security to a man who doesn’t even know who we’re fighting.
H.R. McMaster is just one example of a widespread chronic problem among all of our government leaders. When was the last time any of them publicly acknowledged our true enemy, which is not the Islamic State or the Russians or the Chinese or any other flesh and blood enemies. Our true battle is against the rulers of darkness in this world, the spiritual forces of wickedness who operate in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:12-13)
If our leaders believed that, they would be saying so, but they aren’t because they don’t. Instead, we have leaders like H.R. McMaster claiming the exact opposite, denying the spiritual nature of our battle, calling it a “false narrative that this is a war of religion.”
Americans want national security, but we also want to hold onto our unrighteous deeds. We cannot have it both ways. We cannot expect God to protect us while we refuse to follow His instructions or even mention His commandments publicly. It doesn’t work that way. May God have mercy on our nation.
