Editor, Times-Union:
I read a couple of interesting items in the Times-Union for Jan. 23, 2014. I liked Bill Stieglitz’s letter about Richard Wurmbrand’s organization Voice of the Martyrs. V.O.M. can also be contacted at their website (www.persecution.com).
One Christian facing imminent martyrdom is Asia Bibi. This Pakistani Catholic wife and mother is condemned to die under Shariah blasphemy laws. When pressured by Muslim women to convert to Islam, Asia Bibi replied, “I’m not going to convert. I believe in my religion and in Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for the sins of mankind. What did your Prophet Mohammed ever do to save mankind? And why should it be me that converts instead of you?” This earned Asia Bibi a death sentence. Sadly, the rest of the world is largely ignoring her plight. See the article “Robert Spencer in PJ Lifestyle: The Hypocrisy of the Western Christian Response to Muslim Persecution of Christians” (Jan. 6, 2014). (Jihadwatch.org/2014/01 Read it all).
On page 8A, an article said that a crowd laughed when told that court rulings on gay marriage could pave the way for legalization of polygamy. Don’t laugh too loud. Muslims might think you are mocking them and you know how touchy they can be. In fact, Muslim leaders are already using that argument (see, “Gay marriage has Islamists eyeing polygamy” www.sullivancounty.com/w/polygamy­_muslims.htm).
Polygamy is not legal in any western country – yet. But Muslims have quietly been infiltrating the West for decades with their multiple wives and multiple broods of children. The favorite  wife is declared the official wife and the other wives go on welfare as single mothers (our tax dollars at work!). This is part of a Muslim conquest strategy outlined in the article “We will outbreed you with the bellies of our women” (centurean2.wordpress.com/2009/08/100). See the video “Fitna.” Like they say at MSNBC, “Demographics is Destiny.”
