According to a Palestinian terrorist, CNN's extensive coverage of the Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca is a defeat for Christians

In a report from World Net Daily, a Palestinian terrorist leader in the Gaza Strip says that the extensive coverage of the annual Hajj, which is the Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca, this coverage by CNN has been a defeat to Christians and proves it is only a question of time before Islam will be shining all over the world.

CNN aired several live reports from this year's Hajj including a live shot of the end of the pilgrimage in which hundreds of thousands of Muslims encircled the Kaaba, the holiest building in Mecca. They did this seven times to celebrate Abraham's offer of his son Ishmael in sacrifice.

The hajj is the largest annual pilgrimage in the world and the fifth pillar in Islam which requires every able-bodied Muslim to travel to Mecca, Saudi Arabia at least once in his lifetime.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Millions of Muslims traveling to Mecca on a pilgrimage that celebrates a contradiction of the Bible is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

According to Islamic history the annual pilgrimage to Mecca, which traces the travels of Abraham to Arabia in order to offer his only son Ishmael in sacrifice, is one facet of the pillars of faith for all Muslims. Muslim history has Abraham as their prophet making this trip to offer Ishmael as a sacrifice and their god, the Islamic god Allah, gives Abraham a substitute for Ishmael. This record of history is in total contradiction to the Bible of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Moses wrote, inspired by the Holy Spirit, in Genesis 22 of what really happened. According to the Holy Scriptures, Abraham took his second son Isaac, not the first son Ishmael, to Mount Moriah in Jerusalem, not Mecca in Arabia there to be offered in sacrifice. This conflict in the record of Abraham's obedience to the Lord is evidence that a false religion can be used to motivate one fourth of the world's population to reject God's chosen people and, in fact, do all they can to eliminate all of God's chosen people.

Revelation 12:13-17, Zechariah 13:8, and other prophetic passages foretold this scenario for the last days over 2000 years ago. These are prophecies that will indeed be fulfilled.
