Letter to the Editor from Bettye Petree

by | Aug 13, 2015 | Opinion

Dear Editor,

The majority of the standing room only crowd at the Town Hall meeting came because of the legitimate concern of their tiny village being targeted by an Islamic cemetery. I believe the real issue is the very nature of the ideology of Islam and its direct clash with western civilization. I do not believe the imam was truthful.

“We are just like you – part and parcel of the American society.” Not true. Colonization jihad is a phrase used when the seventh century ‘religion’ seeks to invade a nation through sheer numbers. Check with Holland or London to ask how Islam is working with their countries and their Judeo-Christian values.

“You have nothing to fear from us.” Look around the world and see what group is trying to subdue nations and slaughter Christian men, women and children. As I heard a pastor relate his young son coming in from play, “Daddy! The new little boy in our neighborhood says they’re here to take us over!”

“Hate is not taught in mosques in this country.” Tell that to the Muslim Brotherhood men in the inner circles of Washington.

“You may be told that the Koran advocates murder … it does not.” I know of many Muslim-raised men and women who fled Islam and found love and peace as born-again Christians. They would tell you otherwise. Their lives are constantly being threatened for leaving Islam.

“Our God and your God are one.” He knows that the Koran says it is not and that their god has ‘no Son.’ “Not in one place does the Koran condone lying.” The word is al-Taqiyya-deception.

Farmersville is a conservative, elderly community over 20 miles from the nearest Muslim. To get to this proposed cemetery, one would have to pass by hundreds of acres of flat, treeless land so perfect for a cemetery. Could it be that this is just a step, a camel’s nose under the tent?

I pray for Muslims. God loves them and we have a common ancestor in Abraham. But it ends there. Little Israel is fighting for their lives in a Middle East that is over 99 percent Islamic. But the cry of their Muslim neighbors is ‘we won’t rest until Israel is shoved into the sea.’ Will the Muslims in America not rest until we are under sharia law and an Islamic flag flies over our capitol?
