A Messianic Jew and thirteen other innocent victims were murdered by a terrorist Muslim coworker, his ISIS wife, and another shooter. Also, twenty-one other coworkers attending the Christmas party were wounded by the brutal Muslim terrorist attack. It was on December 2, 2015 that these three Muslims went on a bloody, murderous rampage at a work Christmas party in San Bernardino, California. The liberal media would like to blame guns for the attack. But, those who what to murder others in the name of their religion will find some means to murder them, even if they don’t have a gun. The Muslim terrorist attack on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon in 2001 illustrated this. The al Qaeda, Muslim terrorists used knives and box cutters to take over the planes. After they took over the planes, they used the planes like exploding missiles to strike the Twin Towers and the Pentagon.
When most people are thinking about enjoying life, these Muslim terrorists are thinking about destroying the lives of those who do not worship Allah. It appears that the husband and wife team had plans for a terrorist attack a few years ago, but they had to postpone their attack to avoid getting caught. This attack by the Muslim terrorists was not done on a quick decision. It was premeditated murder.
“One of the officials said the two conspired in 2012 and a specific target was considered. The pair ‘got spooked’ and decided not to go through with the earlier attack after a round of terror-related arrests in the area, an official said.
And sources also told CNN that investigators believe Tashfeen Malik, Farook’s wife and the other shooter who opened fire Wednesday, was radicalized at least two years ago.” (1)
Any Muslim who supports ISIS is like a ticking bomb. According to a Facebook post by Malik, the wife of the terrorist Muslim coworker, it appears that all three Muslim terrorists were followers of the evil ISIS Muslim group.
“The final post on a Facebook page believed to be associated with Malik used the word ‘we’ and pledged allegiance to ISIS, an indication, a U.S. official said, that it was a statement on behalf of both killers.” (2)
Malik took a course on the Quran recently. Anyone who has studied the Quran knows it really does not teach a religion of peace, as claimed by ignorant or deceptive people.
“Malik took but never completed a Quranic course through the Al-Huda International Welfare Foundation. In a statement, that religious study center said she told her instructor in May 2014 that she wouldn’t be able to finish because she was about to get married.” (3)
Farook, the coworker, who was one of the Muslim terrorists, supported ISIS, according to Farook’s father.
“Over the weekend, Farook’s father told an Italian newspaper that his son supported ISIS’ ideology of establishing an Islamic caliphate.” (4)
It appears that Farook was preparing himself for the terrorist rampage by shooting at a gun range.
“A man believed to be Farook visited the Magnum Shooting Range in Riverside, California, on the Sunday and Monday prior to the attack, according to a source familiar with the matter. On those days, he shot with an AR-15.” (5)
The media would like everyone to think that guns are the problem. Just because a terrorist chooses to kill people with a gun, this does not make guns evil. Guns don’t kill people, people kill people. Guns can be used for good or bad. If the Christmas party had been protected by trained security with guns, it is likely that the death of most, if not all, of the innocent victims at the Christmas party could have been prevented.
The use of knives and box cutters by Muslim terrorists in the 9/11 attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon led to the loss of many more lives than those attacked with guns at the California Christmas party. One of the passengers on American Airlines Flight 77 relayed in a phone call that knives and box cutters were used by the Muslim, terrorist hijackers. United Airlines flight 93 was also hijacked by the same group of Muslim terrorists. One of the passengers relayed a message that the hijackers were wielding knives in the takeover of the plane. The brave passengers overcame the Muslim terrorists on their plane and they crashed in a field preventing the death of other innocent U.S. citizens.
American Airlines Flight 77 – Hit Pentagon
“Passenger Barbara Olson called her husband, Theodore Olson, the Solicitor General of the United States, stating the flight had been hijacked and the hijackers had knives and box cutters. Two of the passengers had been on the FBI’s terrorist-alert list: Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi.” (6)
United Airlines Flight 93 Crashed in a field.
“Hijackers: Ziad Jarrah(Lebanese), Ahmed al-Haznawi (Saudi Arabian), Ahmed al-Nami (Saudi Arabian), Saeed al-Ghamdi (Saudi Arabian).
Passenger Jeremy Glick stated that the hijackers were Arabic-looking, wearing red headbands, and carrying knives.” (6)
United Airlines flight 175 and American Airlines flight 11 struck the Twin Towers with deadly force on 9/11. One of the passengers phoned his dad and said that one stewardess was stabbed by a hijacker. This brave passenger told his dad that it appeared that knives were the weapons of choice for these Muslim terrorists.
“It is estimated that Flight 175 was hijacked between 08:42 and 08:46, while Flight 11 was just minutes away from hitting the North Tower.
Peter Hanson made a second phone call to his father at 09:00:
‘It’s getting bad, Dad. A stewardess was stabbed. They seem to have knives and Mace. They said they have a bomb. It’s getting very bad on the plane. The plane is making jerky movements. I don’t think the pilot is flying the plane. I think we are going down. I think they intend to go to Chicago or someplace and fly into a building. Don’t worry, Dad. If it happens, it’ll be very fast…Oh my God…oh my God, oh my God.’” (7)
The 9/11 attacks were very costly in lives and property. Banning guns to the citizens of the United States would not have prevented these attacks. These Muslims carried out their attacks using whatever they could get on the plane. People will murder others with guns, knives, airplanes, swords, etc. If they cannot get their hands on one thing to use as a weapon, they will simply choose another instrument as a weapon. We do not believe that Cain killed Abel with a gun. He probably used a rock, club, knife or even his bare hands, Genesis 4:8. Those in ISIS will use their bare hands if necessary to murder those whom they hate. The government does not have anything to fear from law abiding citizens having guns. Terrorists will get guns illegally if they cannot get them legally. If they cannot get guns, they will use some other instrument as a weapon of mass destruction. This was proven at the Twin Towers destruction at a high cost of lives and property.
“In total, the attacks claimed the lives of 2,996 people (including the 19 hijackers) and caused at least $10 billion in property and infrastructure damage and $3 trillion in total costs.” (8)
Yes, guns were used in the California Christmas party slaughter, but that does not make guns bad. It does not make guns bad any more than the attack on the Twin Towers makes planes, knives or box cutters bad. In the California terrorist attack, guns were misused in the hands of terrorists.
Our prayers go out for the families who suffered loss at the Christmas party in California. We especially express our heartfelt loss for Nicholas Thalasinos who was a Messianic Jew. He was one of the victims of the Muslim terrorists.
“One of the victims of the San Bernardino shooting was identified on Thursday as a Messianic Jew who had a heated discussion with the shooter about Islam weeks before the attack.
The details came to light as investigators tried to determine whether the rampage that left 14 people dead was terrorism, a workplace grudge or some combination.
Nicholas Thalasinos, 52, passionately defended Israel, and actively debated religion in online forums and in person, his friends said. Only two weeks ago, Thalasinos was having a heated on-the-job discussion about the nature of Islam with Syed Rizwan Farook, his fellow restaurant inspector and the man police identified as the shooter.
Thalasinos’ friend, Kuuleme Stephens, told The Associated Press that she happened to call him while he was working with Farook, and that he brought her into their debate, loudly declaring that Farook ‘doesn’t agree that Islam is not a peaceful religion.’ She heard Farook counter that Americans don’t understand Islam, and Thalasinos responded by saying “I don’t know how to talk with him,” she said.” (9)
Nicholas defended his faith in Jesus as his Saviour by boldly speaking to others about their need. He even debated with Farook, one of the Muslim terrorists, who was his coworker. Nicholas told Farook that the religion of Islam is not a religion of peace. Farook, a devote Muslim, argued that Islam was a religion of peace. Considering Farook carried out terrorist acts against his coworkers, he established that Nicholas, the Messianic Jew, was right about the violent teaching of the Quran. Nicholas lost his life on this Earth, but he left a testimony for Jesus. This reminds us of Stephen who lost his life when he verbally defended his faith in Jesus as his Saviour, Acts 7.
“Jennifer Thalasinos said her husband, Nicholas, was a ‘very devout believer.’
The couple, who met online and had been together for 14 years, were Messianic Jews. Nicholas Thalasinos wore tzitzit, traditional fringe tassels, as well as a tie clip with the Star of David.
‘He became born again a couple of years ago, and because of that I had a very strong faith,’ she said, ‘so I know that he’s in a much better place.’
He evangelized many, she said. ‘He wanted to serve the Lord and bring more people to the Lord.’
Friends recalled him [as] a man who was always willing to lend a hand.” (10)
We are not to run around killing those who do not accept Jesus as their Saviour, but it is our obligation to warn the lost to repent of their sins and believe on Jesus as their Saviour. It is the job of every person who is saved to reconcile lost sinners to God through Jesus. We are ambassadors for Heaven. An ambassador who will not speak up for his country is useless. We as born again believers are citizens of Heaven. We imagine that Jesus smiled when He saw Nicholas coming home to Heaven. It appears that he represented Heaven well as a messianic, Jewish ambassador.
2 Corinthians 5:17-21 “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”
The Hadith along with the Quran are considered to be holy books that guide Muslims in the practice of the Islam religion. Notice in Bukhari (52:177) that it plainly tells the Muslims to fight the Jews and kill them.
From the Hadith:
“Bukhari (52:177) – Allah’s Apostle said, ‘The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say.’ ‘O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”’ (11)
In Tabari 7:97, Mohammad, the main prophet of Islam, told his followers to kill any Jew that they had opportunity to kill. Mohammad was a violent person. He had a big part in the formation of the Quran. The Quran encourages violence against the Jews or anyone who will not worship Allah, the false god of Islam.
“Tabari 7:97 The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, ‘Kill any Jew who falls under your power.’ Ashraf was a poet, killed by Muhammad’s men because he insulted Islam. Here, Muhammad widens the scope of his orders to kill. An innocent Jewish businessman was then slain by his Muslim partner, merely for being non-Muslim.” (12)
It is very possible that the Muslim, terrorist attack at the Christmas party was mostly directed toward Nicholas, the Messianic Jew. Nicholas had found the true religion of peace. Jesus can bring peace into your life. Jesus died for sinners, but the Quran teaches sinners to die for Allah. We encourage Jews, Muslims, and others to come to the true God. He will bring peace to your troubled soul. The world is very troubled in our times, but Jesus can lift you above your troubles.
John 14:1-6 “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. 4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. 5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
