I received this today. My commentary follows.
Japan : a Country keeping Islam at bay. Japan has put strict restrictions on Islam and ALL Muslims.
The reasons are: a) Japan is the only nation that does not give citizenship to Muslims.
b) In Japan permanent residency is not given to Muslims
c) There is a strong ban on the propagation of Islam in Japan .
d) In the University of Japan , Arabic or any Islamic language is not taught.
e) One cannot import ‘Koran’ published in Arabic language.
f) According to data published by Japanese government, it has given temporary residency to only 2 lakhs Muslims, who need to follow the Japanese Law of the Land. These Muslims should speak Japanese and carry their religious rituals in their homes.
g) Japan is the only country in the world that has a negligible number of embassies of Islamic countries.
h) Japanese people are not attracted to Islam at all. i) Muslims residing in Japan are the employees of foreign companies.
j) Even today visas are not granted to Muslim doctors, engineers or managers sent by foreign companies.
k) In the majority of companies, it is stated in their regulations that no Muslims should apply for a job.
l) The Japanese government is of the opinion that Muslims are fundamentalist and even in the era of globalization, they are not willing to change their Muslim laws.
m) Muslims can not even think about getting a rented house in Japan .
n) If anyone comes to know that his neighbor is a Muslim then the whole neighbourhood stays alert.
o) No one can start an Islamic cell or Arabic ‘Madarsa’ in Japan
p) There is no personal (Sharia) law in Japan .
q) If a Japanese woman marries a Muslim then she is considered an outcast forever.
r) According to Mr. Komico Yagi (Head of Department, Tokyo University ) “There is a mind frame in Japan that Islam is a very narrow minded religion and one should stay away from it.”
s) Freelance journalist Mohammed Juber toured many Islamic countries after 9/11 including Japan . He found that the Japanese were confident that extremists could do no harm in Japan .
Upon futher research I found this video on You tube
Utimately here I see that like all cults their inroad is usually the disillusioned and disenfranchised. Lost folks for want of a better word. Folks often put their faith in ritual,other people,ideologies,monetary security,warm feelings etc. But these are just false idols. They all fail sooner or later. God came to earth as man (Jesus) so he might both satisfy the price of our continued disobedience to his proper instructions to live a successful life one with his love. He also came to clarify in terms that were perhaps much more easily understood without the modifications made by phony ritualistic men seeking to justify their evil ways. He also came to not only allow his chosen people to come to him holy and purified, but also to give all men that chance. But once again man has corrupted his teaching and false religions have sprung up. The current Islam has been using force and influence for years to gain new followers. In many countries under Sharia law refusal is not an option unless you wish to be no longer living. Even here in the United States Islamic fathers are murdering their daughters if they deviate from their beliefs. How do we know this is a false religion? How do we know folks are not God's children? His word clearly states:
1Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. 2Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 3And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. 4Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. 5And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin. 6Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. 7Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 8He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 9Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. 11For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. 12Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous. 13Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you. 14We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death. 15Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. 16Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. 17But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? 18My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. 19And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him. 20For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. 21Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. 22And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. 23And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. 24And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.
It is very interesting that even Japan a very hardcore traditional country is being invaded by appealing to again the misguided and vunerable youth with their appealing ritual and false feeling of religiousness.The fruits of islam are hate and terror and death. The Koran teaches that if a person does not accept the faith they are to be killed. Christ taught if a person does not accept the faith in God the believer is to dust the sand of the city from their feet and leave to spread the word in more fertile places.
Christ told his followers to test,to examine and to question what he was saying because he knew as THE author and authority,God himself, knew his word,his truth would stand the test because truth always does. Christ was the only human being on earth who lived a life and a whole history of both friendly and hostile witnesses testify to his existance who made the claim of being the Creator of the Universe. And yet, people seek to worship humans who never made that claim. Big reason why God himself buried Moses who stayed behind from the promised land. He knew the tendency for his creations to worship other humans in leadership. Just look at the number of statues erected to war heros and presidents. It is those false religions that morphed from human beings trying to seek the divine or admirations of others that tell it's followers to blindly follow without question and force their followers to live in isolation for they fear that their lies will be easily revealed under close examination.
Satan has been given free reign over the earth by God. Satan knows his time is short and he seeks to cause as many as he can to fall away from the Lord. Satan uses the known vulnerabilities of man just as he did with Adam and Eve to pull them away from following God. Satan comes as an angel of light and he brings things that look so good, so right but they are counterfeit. Do not be deceived or be dazzled by the cubic zirconia of religions out there. Many things look great upon the surface but, upon closer look the flaws of a fake become very apparent. Use both your head and your heart when seeking a path to the Lord and ask as the Lord said for HIS Holy Spirit to teach you. By doing so you will not be disappointed.
