Quoting from Raymond Ibrahim.com –
A video recording from a recent Friday sermon in Egypt, where the imam swears to Allah several times that the flag of Islam will be raised above the White House of America, recently appeared on the Arabic Internet. According to the imam preaching, all Muslims need do is be patient and continue working towards this goal. The video, which I subtitled, can be viewed on YouTube. [Note: If captions do not appear, you may have to manually turn them on by pressing “cc” on the video.]
Absurd you say? Some passages speak for themselves:
Revelation 13:7-9 (NASB) 7 It was also given to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them, and authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him. 8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who has been slain. 9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear.
I suppose that the people of Constantinople felt that same way — at least until the city fell to the Muslims and Ottoman Sultan Mehmet II on May 29, 1453 AD. Constantinople was referred to by Muslims as the “Red Apple,” the ultimate prize. It had withstood siege after siege (every forty years according to historians for 1000 years), including numerous failed Muslim onslaughts. But fall it did. (See Islam, the Cloak of Antichrist for a history of this event).
It seems that another “Red Apple” is in the minds of Islamists — the United States of America. According to the Imam, America will also fall.
May God (not Allah) be honored and praised that regardless of whether America does fall, He will not.
