"And Aram begat Aminadab" - The Islamic World

The Islamic World

The most terrible incident now going on is of course the civil war in Syria.

Abraham traveled around Syria or specifically Damascus, according to an old record.  And human beings are still making terrible acts of strife among themselves without enough respect for and awe of God.

From North Africa to Palestine and Syria and further to Mesopotamia and the Iranian highlands toward Afghanistan and Pakistan, no great economies look like emerging.  It is as though the Allah or the God forbade Muslims living in the regions to adopt and develop modern science, technology, and business mostly devised in Europe and America, namely by Christians.

If Islam is the last region, which seems true to some degree, the state in the Islamic world must suggest the last and required state of human society in large.  There should not be prosperity backed by science, technology, and business mostly devised in Europe and America, namely by Christians.

Maybe, Muslims are right living in the society largely governed or strongly influenced by the religion Islam.  It is because we can interpret the situation of those Islamic regions as they have been protecting their spirits from violent invasion by the modern Western civilization rooted in traditions of Christianity.  Not to accept the modern material civilization means a kind of victory for Muslims against Christians and Judaists, though prosperity of Dubai can be regarded as betraying this great cause.    

Put simply, more people enter Heaven and are welcomed by holy spirits after death in the Islamic world than in Europe, Indian, China, Japan, and America, since Muslims are more faithful to their religion (the last religion for mankind) than other peoples with various religions in those areas and countries featuring great economy.

May the Allah or the God more bless Syrians and other Muslims in 2013!

"The voice of one crying in the wilderness" - New Revolution in China

New Revolution in China

An American professor said in an interview by a commentator of the Japanese NHK TV station that though he did not know a reason it was apparent that China changed its diplomatic stance two and half years before.

Around 2010, China suddenly came to intimidate Asian countries situated around the South China Sea.  China also took a very unfriendly attitude at the time to Japan in the wake of a maritime incident that a Chinese fishing boat rammed itself against a Japanese Coast Guard ship engaged in patrol around the Japanese Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea.  

From economic, diplomatic, national security, and other administrative and social points of view, it is difficult to understand why China suddenly did away with a low-key and cooperative policy toward neighboring countries in East Asia around 2010.

But the key words are a new revolution in China, the end of domination of the Chinese people by the Chinese Communist Party, and an idea to keep respect and fear of the Chinese Communist Parties and the People's Liberation Army among the Chinese public by demonstrating its military predominance over other countries.

In other word, the Chinese Communist Party started to feel that their political foundations came to shake due to a big change in domestic circumstances triggered by big economic growth around 2010.

It must be a sign of a future drastic change in the Chinese politics.

Luk 1:1 Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us,
Luk 1:2 Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word;
Luk 1:3 It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus,
Luk 1:4 That thou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed.
