While it is right to be against any violence towards the Muslim faith or any other faith i have to Wonder why does it appear we are so eager to hold their hand's? Why are "Christian" pastors so eager to join in with support or join in a worship service with Muslims? This is forbidden in the Bible, Paul says in Ephesians that we are not to be tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine.

Ephesians 4:14-15

14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

He also states that it is the enemy's intention to deceive us and indeed if you read the Koran you will understand it is Islam's intention to deceive the "Children of the Book" (Christians). Any pastor who Joins with this deception is sadly and gravely deceived if they believe there ever will or can be peace between Islam and Christianity.

The Koran states that there are three ways in which Christianity can exist with Islam in peace.

1. The Christian can pay a tariff or fine to live in peace among Islam.

2. The Christian must denounce his faith and convert to Islam.

3. The Christian must declare open war with Islam and fight until one or the other is killed

A great source of information on this subject is a man named Usama Dakdok he is a former Muslim saved by grace and now preaches the truth of the Gospel as well as the true intentions of Islam in America. His web address is.

Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny DuPree addressed the resolution in a prepared statement on Tuesday: 

"One of the main freedoms this country was founded upon was the freedom to worship, and this freedom is one that remains sacred to all of us. The City of Hattiesburg will not tolerate anyone who invades a religious facility and/or violate the rights of those with beliefs different from theirs."

On March 18, members of the Center arrived to morning prayer and discovered two bullet holes in the building. The FBI is still investigating the motive behind the incident. Hattiesburg police investigated, but no arrests have been made. The walls and windows were damaged. The windows were repaired by a local glass company for free. No one was in the building at the time of the shooting.
Members of the Center said at the time they believed five shots had been fired into the building, three lodged in the front, and two passed from the front to the back. No one was at the building at the time of the shooting.

The Hattiesburg City Council is the fourth group to step forward in support of The Center. Other groups include the The University of Southern Mississippi Senate, Westminster Presbyterian Church, and Parkway Heights United Methodist Church.

Two Pine Belt pastors from the aforementioned churches joined worship services at the Islamic Center of Hattiesburg on April 25 in an act of solidarity and to express condolences for the shooting that took place at The Center.
