Facebook removed some photos and a post uploaded by radio host Michael Savage:
December 10, 2015
Talk-radio host Michael Savage thought that amid a fierce national debate on whether or not to allow Muslims to immigrate to the United States, it would be worth considering what has been happening in Europe.
So, he posted on his Facebook page photographs of the Feb. 3, 2006, demonstration outside the Embassy of Denmark in London. The focus of protest was the publication of editorial cartoons depicting Muhammad in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten. Snopes.com verified that the photographs were taken at the London demonstration, with the exception of one, which was from a protest in the English city of Luton.
Facebook has not explained why it deleted the post, but it provided a link to its “Community Standards” page, which lists “hate speech” as one of its prohibitions, along with “violence and graphic content,” and nudity.
Messages in placards held up by the London demonstrators included “Behead those who insult Islam,” “Freedom go to hell,” “Europe. Take some lessons from 9/11″ and “Be prepared for the real Holocaust.”
The Facebook post on Savage’s page included text from an email that has circulated for many years:
Why would anyone think that we should be at war with such nice, peaceful Muslims?!
You need to forward this one to everyone! These pictures tell it all!
Muslims have stated that England will be the first country they take over!
These are pictures not shown on American TV or in American Newspapers – WHY?!
They were forwarded by a Canadian friend who thought ALL Americans ought to know!
The question is whether the Facebook violation was because of the hate speech exhibited by the Muslim protesters in the photographs or because of the act of posting the photographs and the text.
Savage suspects it was the latter.http://www.wnd.com/2015/12/facebook-censors-michael-savage-post-of-muslims-protesting/#2H1D5hWuSZtRb0Dr.99
Back in 2009, Michael Savage was banned from going to the UK:
December 11, 2015
2009: Controversial American ‘shock jock’ radio presenter Michael Savage was barred from entering the UK. Savage said: ‘You know, when I see a woman walking around with a burqa, I see a Nazi.’ He has called the Koran ‘a book of hate’ and added that some Muslims, at least, ‘need deportation’. The Right-wing radio presenter’s hardline views on Islam, rape and autism have also caused outrage in the US. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3355449/He-just-doesn-t-know-stop-Donald-Trump-claims-Muslims-join-ISIS-British-Army.html#ixzz3u1RV3t8e
I reported some of Michael Savage’s views on what Islam was doing last month (see Michael Savage: ‘A dance of death in the West’).
Anyone willing to look at what the Qur’an and Islamic tradition teaches, realizes that there is a lot of violence in Islam. Plus this is NOT limited to just a few Muslims.
Consider the following two reports:
June 25, 2015
The Center for Security Policy (CSP) has released the results of a poll showing alarmingly high levels of support for sharia law and violence among the American Muslim community.
According to the nationwide survey, “significant minorities embrace supremacist notions that could pose a threat to America’s security and its constitutional form of government.”
A majority (51 percent) of Muslims surveyed said they “should have the choice of being governed according to shariah.”
Almost 30 percent of American Muslims believe it is legitimate to use violence “against those that insult the prophet Muhammad, the Qur’an, or Islamic faith.”
One quarter of Muslims said that “violence against Americans here in the United States can be justified as part of the global jihad.”
Even more ominous, “nearly one-fifth of Muslim respondents said that the use of violence in the United States is justified in order to make shariah the law of the land in this country,” the CSP polling data showed.http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2015/06/poll_shows_high_levels_of_support_for_shariah_law_and_violence_among_american_muslims.html#ixzz3trmaHwv3

Despite the fact some political factions, both right and left, across the U.S. have dubbed Islam a religion of peace, new research from a Danish expert confirms that it is, in fact, violent.
The conclusion was noted in a report at Jihad Watch, which monitors the toll of the religion of Muhammad.
“Together with a number of research assistants, the Danish linguist Tina Magaard spent three years examining the texts of the 10 largest religions,” explained Nicolai Sennels on the Jihad Watch site. “The conclusion was clear: ‘The texts of Islam [are] clearly distinct from the other religions’ texts as [they include] a higher degree call for violence and aggression against followers of other faiths.’
“There are also direct incitement[s] to terror … Moreover, in the Quran [there are] hundreds of invitations to fight against people of other faiths.”
The author of that study, Christian Pfeiffer, from a criminal research institute in Lower Saxony, said even when other social factors are taken into account, there remained a significant correlation between “religiosity and readiness to use violence.”
“The fact that Islam is the world’s most violent religion is most likely the reason why Muslims since September 11, 2011, [have] committed more than 27,000 deadly terrorist attacks in the name of Islam. This corresponds to approximately 2,000 a year or five a day,” Jihad Watch said.
The report cited thereligionofpeace.com website, which has documented Islam-related violence since the terror attacks on New York and Washington.
“Another fact is that the number of Muslims in the Western world is increasing dramatically and that they are becoming still more religious: 75 percent of Muslims inside Europe think that the texts of the world’s most violent religion must be taken literal,” the report said.
Jihad Watch noted 80 percent of young Turks in Holland “see ‘nothing wrong’ in waging jihad against non-Muslims.”http://www.wnd.com/2015/11/danish-researcher-islam-is-more-violent/#KwckR1ImEMTP5JPB.99
So, both in Europe and in the United States, there are MILLIONS of Muslims that openly admit that they support violence against the West.
More terrorism will hit the USA, Canada, the UK, and continental Europe (see Why Terrorism? Is Terrorism Prophesied?).
But the other issue to bring up, and is why I decided to make this post, is that there is censorship on the internet. YouTube recently, as well as improperly in my view, censored a Protestant YouTube channel (see YouTube censorship of Protestant channel).
Now Facebook got directly involved with censorship.
Here are some of Facebook’s policies from its Community Standard’s pages:
We remove content, disable accounts, and work with law enforcement when we believe there is a genuine risk of physical harm or direct threats to public safety. …
People use Facebook to share their experiences and to raise awareness about issues that are important to them. This means that you may encounter opinions that are different from yours, which we believe can lead to important conversations about difficult topics. To help balance the needs, safety, and interests of a diverse community, however, we may remove certain kinds of sensitive content or limit the audience that sees it.
While the above may seem reasonable to many, the reality is that internet censorship is a real threat as how the above is interpreted can lead to inappropriate censorship. This censorship issue is so serious that we in the Continuing Church of God decided, because of the YouTube incident, to come up with an alternative to YouTube if we were faced with its censorship.
The USA no longer has the type of ‘freedom of religion’ or ‘freedom of speech’ its founders envisioned. And while neither Facebook or YouTube are part of the government of the USA, they do not support the agenda or the morality of the Bible.
The time will come when the USA, and likely some private companies, will apparently stop the efforts of websites like this one. As well as our numerous video channels on the internet.
Consider the following prophecy:
13 Therefore the prudent keep silent at that time, For it is an evil time. (Amos 5:13)
The above indicates that even those that are doing nothing wrong will need to be silent at the coming evil time.
Yet, currently, it is still time to:
1 Cry aloud, spare not;
Lift up your voice like a trumpet;
Tell My people their transgression,
And the house of Jacob their sins. (Isaiah 58:1)
Which is what we in the Continuing Church of God are doing. We have denounced, not only sins that the world sometimes seems to consider politically correct, but also sins that many claimed COGs will not do, because of their own concerns about their political fates and/or fates that could happen if they offended their financial supporters if they told the truth to truly fulfill Isaiah 58:1.
For years, this website has warned of civil unrest in Europe and the USA and has mentioned that Islamic issues will be a factor in both those regions.
Many in and out of the government have plans and are watching the internet with plans to deal with materials that they some day hope to silence.
Notice the following from the Bible:
1 Hear my voice, O God, in my meditation;
Preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
2 Hide me from the secret plots of the wicked,
From the rebellion of the workers of iniquity,
3 Who sharpen their tongue like a sword,
And bend their bows to shoot their arrows — bitter words,
4 That they may shoot in secret at the blameless;
Suddenly they shoot at him and do not fear.
5 They encourage themselves in an evil matter;
They talk of laying snares secretly;
They say, “Who will see them?”
6 They devise iniquities:
“We have perfected a shrewd scheme.”
Both the inward thought and the heart of man are deep. (Psalms 64:1-6)
And while you might think that if you have done nothing wrong, you have nothing to fear from surveillance, consider that many in the government of the USA consider that not supporting homosexual marriages, etc. are extremist. I also saw someone once on a documentary that stated that people who believed in the millennium could not be trusted and should be considered as potential terrorists. The fact that we in the Continuing Church of God would be consideredpacifists, does not change the fact that since we hold to millennial and other biblical views that we will not be improperly classified by government employees with various agendas.
The Prophet Amos was inspired to record the following:
11 “Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord God,
“That I will send a famine on the land,
Not a famine of bread,
Nor a thirst for water,
But of hearing the words of the Lord.
12 They shall wander from sea to sea,
And from north to east;
They shall run to and fro, seeking the word of the Lord,
But shall not find it. (Amos 8:11-12)
Notice that the Bible tells of a time that will come when the word of God will not be found. And that would seem to be because truth from it will be taken off the internet. In the 21st century, the internet is accessed by people in every country, and thus some type of internet restriction/suspension/site removal is coming.
We are getting closer to this time.
That is part of why we in the Continuing Church of God are preparing for the ‘short work’ (Romans 9:28) and the coming ‘famine of the word.’
Despite Facebook’s attempts to cover it up, the reality is that without repentance by millions of Muslims, more Islamic terrorism will come. And, despite the first amendment to the US Constitution, more censorship on the internet.
