Vic opened this edition of Crosstalk with audio from a clip called, Shariamerica: Islam, Obama and the Establishment Clause. This clip, from Acts 17 Apologetics Ministries, looks at how differently the Qur’an is treated by our government when compared to their treatment of the Christian Bible.
Vic’s guest, Usama Dakdok, was born in Egypt and grew up in a Christian home. He attended a government school in Egypt and through the years learned about Islam, like other students in a Muslim country. He came to America in 1992 and after discovering that there were many Muslims in America, he began The Straight Way of Grace Ministry.
After the audio clip, Usama makes it clear that he is against burning the Qur’an. He explains that the way to defeat Islam is not to burn the Qur’an but rather to get Muslims to read it. This is why he worked to produce an accurate Qur’an in English so that people can read it and realize how it’s the fuel, not for peace, but for terrorist activities around the world. His translation also includes the Qur’an’s errors and contradictions, gives comparison to Biblical accounts, includes a Table of Bible Prophecies about Jesus and a Gospel Invitation for the reader to come to Christ.
Usama also talked about a new program he will be hosting that will be debuting on the VCY America Network beginning in September.
