Ye Shall Know Them By Their Fruits
by Dick Franklin
I am not given to quoting from the Good Book frequently. As a non-believer I do not think I have the right to do so. However, recent events reminded me of the words of Jesus as set out in Matthew, Chapter 7, Verses 15 to 20:
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth forth not good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
I must admit that I had not heard of the Yazidi people before they were faced with the jihadist followers of a false prophet, who are behaving like the ravening wolves mentioned by Jesus. By all accounts the Yazidi are a peaceable people who follow an ancient monotheistic faith which pre-dates Christianity and possibly even Judaism by a wide margin. The ISIS fanatics have described the Yazidi as devil worshippers. This, of course, is totally without foundation, but then these Moslems seem to regard anyone who does not follow their hate filled creed in the same manner.
We are told that there are 500 “British” Moslems among those currently meting out mass murder, beheading, rape and torture in Iraq and Syria. There are probably very many more. When they have had their “fun” most of these will seek to return to the UK and some will continue carrying out what they regard as the edicts of their prophet.
I sincerely hope those who have allowed this hate filled creed to prosper in Britain will get the full measure of what is due to them. I do not believe there is a Hell. But I really hope I am wrong, for that is where they belong along with their jihadist guests.
If you want to hear voices speaking against this treachery, vote and work for your Patria candidates in the 2015 General Election.
