Via Jihad Watch's Raymond Ibrahim comes this must-see video from the Arabic-language satellite TV station Al-Haya (Life TV). Al-Haya is, as Ibrahim describes it, a Christian missionary TV station aimed at converting Muslims. Ibrahim doesn't mention where it is based, perhaps deliberately. I would guess in the U.S., but it would be entirely understandable if the location were kept secret. The two hosts of the show "Daring Question," known only by their first names, take telephone calls from Muslims around the world about Islam and Christianity.
In this Youtube clip, subtitled in English, they receive a call from a Moroccan woman named Sana, calling from the UK. Sana has come to believe that Christianity is true but is terrified lest her husband find out, because she believes he will divorce her and take her children away from her. She cannot lose her children, she feels, and she wants her children to be Christians, too. The hosts pray for her and with her over the phone.
The news that all of this is going on is simultaneously moving, sobering, and uplifting. It is sobering in part because, while Sana might simply be uninformed about her rights under British law, it is also possible that her husband would find some speciously plausible way to claim that she had "agreed" to arbitration of a divorce by sharia, in which case she might very well lose her children, just as she fears.
But it is uplifting to learn about this missionary effort. All of us who are worried about the Islamic threat to America have our ideas about what should be done--banning Muslim immigration, a jihad sedition law. But we also know that nobody is going to listen to these ideas. And this can lead to a feeling of helplessness. The men who host these shows are not helpless. They know that they have God on their side, and they are fighting Islam in the power of the Holy Ghost, converting one soul at a time.
