Paris killings frightens some Christians.

France (MNN) — The world watched in horror last
week as Islamic extremists shot and killed 12
people at the Charlie Hebdo newspaper offices in
Paris, France. The reason for the Paris shootings?
The satire magazine had published cartoons
depicting Mohamed which the Islamists found
insulting.
Despite being integral to the story, many news
organization refuse to publish the cartoons, fearing
reprisal from other extremists.
Middle East expert and Vice President of E3
Partners Tom Doyle says radical Muslims appear
to be winning. “I think in a way they’re gaining
ground with the press and, in a sense, evaporating
the freedom of the press.”
We asked Doyle if this kind of terror is affecting the
Islamization of the West? “They are making people
in Europe and America adjust. It’s not coming
through them convincing the West of their ideology
and the theology. They’re bullying people.”
He says 8% of Muslims support Jihad and these
types of attacks, but that’s nearly 150 million
people.

Dolye has traveled throughout Europe and has
been surprised by the response on many
Christians there. He says many are “living in fear,
just because there are Muslims living in their city
and really hating them.”
Despite the appearance that radical Islam is
winning, Doyle thinks Islam could implode. Why?
“Because young people in many countries that we
travel in are frustrated. They look at what is
happening with the Islamists and then what’s
happening in their countries, and I think Muslims
globally are sending up an SOS signal.”
He says more Muslims than ever before are
turning to Christ. “We just heard about a city in the
Middle East, I can’t name it, where someone
identified 1,100 Muslims that have come to faith in
Christ just recently.”
Doyle believes Satan is using these terrorist
attacks “to frighten us, or even produce hatred in
us, which both stances are unbiblical when it
comes to reaching out. It’s causing believers to
shy way from Muslims when today we’re living in
the greatest Muslim harvest of all time.”
E3 Partners isn’t slowing down their efforts. Doyle
says, “We launching a new initiative into 10
unengaged people groups around the world. These
are groups that have no Bibles, no churches, no
believers, and probably nobody working with
them.”
He says E3 needs help. “We’re training and
sending teams into these areas to prayer walk, to
find a person of peace, to reach out them with the
Gospel, and hopefully churches will be planted.”
