In the CBN video link below the prospects for the free societies of the world are daunting. Belgium is the country at hand but it represents what is happening all over Europe. Belgium is very quickly being overwhelmed by Muslims to the point that many nationalists are leaving the country. The sheer birth rate(http://www.brookings.edu/opinions/2003/03middleeast_taspinar.aspx?p=1 (accessed May 12, 2010).)) of Muslim families will soon bring Sharia law to the country not by the sword but by the ballot box. Muslim politicians will be elected because Muslims will outnumber their fellow non-Muslim citizens. In the process, Muslim politicians will replace the democratic leaders of current free societies. The democratic form of government that these societies are presently governed by will be replaced, legally, and without the sword (although that seems unlikely even if it occurs. Victory in Islam always has a victim. I wonder though – when democracy is replaced by Sharia law, will the losers be offered the same three options as those in Iraq? Convert to Islam, pay the jizya (the humility tax), or die?)

In fact, if you look down the road for Europe, the greatest threat is not the Islamic State. It is the democratic process, the process that free people all over-the-world consider their strength. It is this strength that can become our greatest weakness. The ballot box can be far more effectively than the sword, but just as lethal. It just takes longer with the ballot box.
The first time I came across the danger to the free world of the Muslim population increase was reported in a post in 2010 when Cardinal Peter Turkson was a leading candidate for the next Pope. The Cardinal showed the video entitled, “Muslim Demographics” at a Catholic conference for Bishops and was soundly rebuked for his actions. Here are two posts about this same issue:
Muslim Demographics” – “Spurious Claims” or fulfillment of Bible Prophecy?
Cardinal Peter Turkson and Muslim Demographics
I believe the video, Muslim Demographics, gives us 50 years; but I didn’t watch the entire video again so that number may be off. I suspect the free-persons in Belgium wouldn’t agree with the 50 years. Maybe more like 10 for them?
Here is what the Brookings Institute described the situation for Europe
Islam may still be a faraway religion for millions of Americans. But for Europeans it is local politics. The 15 million Muslims of the European Union (EU)—up to three times as many as live in the United States—are becoming a more powerful political force than the fabled Arab street. …Today, the Muslim birth rate in Europe is three times higher … If current trends continue, the Muslim population of Europe will nearly double by 2015, while the non-Muslim population will shrink by 3.5 percent.1
I wonder how long it will take for America to experience what Belgium is experiencing?
Jesus come quickly.

I have always maintained that Islam is a political, legal and miliary movement disguised as a religion. This article also presents a Muslim tactic in host countries using the principle of mass, having huge families to overwhelm the host population in order to get legal a,d political clout. Islam is the most dangerous movement in the world today.
Ed. I could not agree more with your statement. Islam’s danger is very deceptive because there are many Muslims who are not Islamists, who are respectful of other faiths, and are morally good people, just as concerned about the hostile events occurring all over the world in the name of Allah as we are. This creates the dual nature of Islam, almost like two sons in a family who are identical twins. One is good and the other is evil, and even sees violence as a virtue. The good son is afraid of the bad son and many people confuse the two. The issue is which son prevails, the good or the bad. My view of the Scripture is that the bad son prevails.
Just found this site today. So glad someone is out there at the very least looking at Islam as a possible player in end of the age theology. Seems like if ya bring up Islam as something remotely evil, you’re met with accusations of racism and/or religious bigotry….and that’s just within mainstream Christiandom here in the US. I believe it is intellectually dishonest to not consider Islam as a potential “Beast” system player in eschatological studies. Again, …..at the VERY least.
Thanks for the comment. Islam fulfills many of the characteristics of Bible prophecy. Rev 12:17 is a primary passage for this conclusion. It requires an identification of satan’s instrument thru which satan will wage war against Christians. Islam uniquely fulfills this prophecy. It also fulfills Rev 12:13 which prophesies of a similar war against Jews. Since Islam’s inception in the 7th century it has been waging war against Jews and Christians. No other religion has done this.
