In the Face of Evil Updates

4/18/07 Update:

Take a look at this blogsearch about the words, Ismail Ax

CrimeBlog.US has some very intriguing information; but near the end of the post concludes that it might all be just a hoax. Or, was there an attempt at cover-up? More research definitely needs to be done.



Update @ 7:38 a.m. PT

Right Truth is asking the question on why the MSM is not discussing the possible meanings and/or implications of "Ismail Ax." The only time I heard it mentioned (yesterday) was on the Nancy Grace show at CNN Headline News. But NO ONE MENTIONED that it COULD have radical Islamic ties.


Right truth links to The Cassandra Page which discusses the news coverage (and lack of detail compared to the blogs!) on the still unfolding story of the Virginia Tech murders. Note this excerpt:

Today also we learned that the killer had the words "Ismail ax" written on his body. This phrase has (among other explanations) Islamic implications, which means that the MSM/DNC will never investigate its meaning.Aside from the usual MSM/DNC propaganda, the things we learn about the shootings in the next few days will make the posts of the last few days appear to be a strange time capsule.

Right Truth laments:

No one is talking about the "Ismail Ax" fact.. I mean no one. No TV, little print. I just watched the whole press conference and not one, not one, reporter asked about it. They asked about everything from soup to nuts (down to the class scheduling going forward) but not one query about Ismail AX. Am I nuts? The man had Ismail Ax written in red on his arm. Is that not deserving of some investigation or question?

Check back often...much more to come I'm sure!

Update @ 7:55 a.m. PT:

Verum Serum discusses five possible theories; including whether the spelling on the murderer's arm was "Ismale" Ax or "Ismail" Ax.

The Islamic Threat discusses his theory that there is an Islamic connection. One piece of news is that the killer Hui had a Pakistani neighbor.

Update @ 9:09 a.m. PT:

More "Ismail Ax" coverage from UnRest in the Forest, here and here.

Update @ 9:30 a.m. PT:

IslamiCity has a detailed account of how the Biblical FACT of Abraham and Isaac is replaced with the false Muslim account of Abrahim and Ismail.

Excerpt from the FALSE ACCOUNT:

Meanwhile, Ibrahim who had not seen his son since he was a baby, came back to Makkah to visit him. Upon arriving, he heard that Hajar had died, but Ismail was still living there. Ibrahim was yearning to see his son whom he loved and missed a lot. He saw Ismail under a tree near Zamzam, sharpening his arrows. When he saw his father, Ismail rose up, hugged him and greeted him. It was the happiest moment for both father and son. But Allah wanted to put them to test, and it was a tough test indeed. During one night, Ibrahim had a dream. He came to Ismail and said: "O my son ! I have seen in a dream that I am slaughtering you as a sacrifice to Allah, so what do you think?" They both realized that this was an order from Allah. Ismail said without hesitation: "Do what you are commanded, you shall find me very patient insha Allah." They had both submitted to the will of Allah. Ibrahim laid his son prostrate, put his forehead on the ground and directed a sharp knife towards his neck. At this very moment, Allah called him: "O Ibrahim! You have fulfilled the dream! Thus do We reward the good doers !" A big sheep was sent down from heaven to be slaughtered instead of Ismail, which Ibrahim did, and they both had a big celebration that day. This event is celebrated every year by all Muslims. It is Eid al-Adha where we slaughter the sacrificial sheep.

The TRUTH from the Bible (NKJV):

Gen 22:1 NOW it came to pass after these things that God tested Abraham, and said to him, "Abraham!" And he said, "Here I am."

Gen 22:2 Then He said, "Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you."

Gen 22:3 So Abraham rose early in the morning and saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son; and he split the wood for the burnt offering, and arose and went to the place of which God had told him.

Gen 22:4 Then on the third day Abraham lifted his eyes and saw the place afar off.

Gen 22:5 And Abraham said to his young men, "Stay here with the donkey; the lad[fn1] and I will go yonder and worship, and we will come back to you."

Gen 22:6 So Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it on Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife, and the two of them went together.

Gen 22:7 But Isaac spoke to Abraham his father and said, "My father!" And he said, "Here I am, my son." Then he said, "Look, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?"

Gen 22:8 And Abraham said, "My son, God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering." So the two of them went together.

Gen 22:9 Then they came to the place of which God had told him. And Abraham built an altar there and placed the wood in order; and he bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar, upon the wood.

Gen 22:10 And Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to slay his son.

Gen 22:11 But the Angel of the LORD called to him from heaven and said, "Abraham, Abraham!" So he said, "Here I am."

Gen 22:12 And He said, "Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me."

Gen 22:13 Then Abraham lifted his eyes and looked, and there behind him was a ram caught in a thicket by its horns. So Abraham went and took the ram, and offered it up for a burnt offering instead of his son.

Gen 22:14 And Abraham called the name of the place, The-LORD-Will-Provide;[fn2] as it is said to this day, "In the Mount of the LORD it shall be provided."

Gen 22:15 Then the Angel of the LORD called to Abraham a second time out of heaven,

Gen 22:16 and said: "By Myself I have sworn, says the LORD, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son--

Gen 22:17 "blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies.

Gen 22:18 "In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice."

Gen 22:19 So Abraham returned to his young men, and they rose and went together to Beersheba; and Abraham dwelt at Beersheba.

Chuck Smith's commentary on Genesis 22 shares how this event between Abraham, Isaac and God the Father was a foreshadowing of the coming Messiah...God's Only Begotten Son (Jesus Christ), being sacrificed to satisfy the judgment for sin, and rising to life through the power of the Resurrection for the purpose of Him overcoming evil, sin and death. Through Christ (and Him alone) we can be reconciled back unto THE Holy and Righteous God of the universe.



v.1-7 The birth of Isaac was a source of awe at God's power and joy in His blessing.

v.12 God promised Abraham that "in Isaac shall thy seed be called". This promise was to help Abraham in a later trial.

v.31 Beersheba means "the well of oath or swearing".


God's revelation of Himself to Abraham took the form of a progressive fellowship into which He led Abraham each time He appeared to him.

First appearance: fellowship of the discontent of God with the worldly society (Genesis 12:1 ).

Second appearance: fellowship with the plans and methods of God (Genesis 13:14-1 8).

Third appearance: fellowship with the patience of God (Genesis 15).

Fourth appearance: fellowship of the hope of God (Genesis 15:12-21).

Fifth appearance: fellowship of the sufficiency of God (Genesis 17).

Sixth appearance: fellowship with the justice of God (Genesis 18: 23-33).

Seventh appearance: fellowship of His suffering (Genesis 22).

v.1 "Test" is a better word than "tempt" to describe the experience God planned for Abraham.

v.2 This verse compares to John 3:16 where God the Father sacrificed His beloved Son. Calvary is located right on the crest of Mount Moriah.

v.3-10 Repetition of the word "and" denotes consistent, deliberate action.

v.5 The plural verb was used when Abraham said, "I and the lad will go yonder and worship and (we will) come again to you".

v.6 Isaac had to carry the wood for the sacrifice even as Christ had to carry the cross.

v.8 Abraham prophesies, "My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering (sacrifice)".

v.8-10 Hebrews 11:17-19. Since Abraham had the promise of God (Genesis 21:12) that his descendants would come through Isaac, and since Isaac had no children when God asked for the sacrifice, Abraham knew that, if necessary, God would raise Isaac from the dead.

Like Christ, Isaac was a willing sacrifice, for he was about thirty years old and could easily have overpowered his aged father.

v.14 Jehovah-jireh means "God sees, God provides". "In the mount of the Lord it shall be seen" was a prophecy of the sacrifice of Jesus by the Father on the same mount.

v.16-18 When Abraham gave his best to God, God rewarded him doubly. Abraham was allowed to enter into a deep, intimate fellowship with God in suffering over the sacrifice of a beloved only son.

Note what the Bible says about Ishmael (Ismail in Arabic):

Gen 17:19 Then God said: "No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendants after him.
Gen 17:20 "And as for Ishmael, I have heard you. Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall beget twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation.
Gen 17:21 "But My covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah shall bear to you at this set time next year."
Gen 17:22 Then He finished talking with him, and God went up from Abraham.

Notice that God's Covenant is established with Isaac and his decendents. Ishmael's decendents were only referred to as a "great nation."

This is the Biblical account of what happened to Hagar and Ishmael:

Gen 21:9 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, scoffing.

Gen 21:10 Therefore she said to Abraham, "Cast out this bondwoman and her son; for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, namely with Isaac."

Gen 21:11 And the matter was very displeasing in Abraham's sight because of his son.

Gen 21:12 But God said to Abraham, "Do not let it be displeasing in your sight because of the lad or because of your bondwoman. Whatever Sarah has said to you, listen to her voice; for in Isaac your seed shall be called.

Gen 21:13 "Yet I will also make a nation of the son of the bondwoman, because he is your seed."

Gen 21:14 So Abraham rose early in the morning, and took bread and a skin of water; and putting it on her shoulder, he gave it and the boy to Hagar, and sent her away. Then she departed and wandered in the Wilderness of Beersheba.

Gen 21:15 And the water in the skin was used up, and she placed the boy under one of the shrubs.

Gen 21:16 Then she went and sat down across from him at a distance of about a bowshot; for she said to herself, "Let me not see the death of the boy." So she sat opposite him, and lifted her voice and wept.

Gen 21:17 And God heard the voice of the lad. Then the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven and said to her, "What ails you, Hagar? Fear not, for God has heard the voice of the lad where he is.

Gen 21:18 "Arise, lift up the lad and hold him with your hand, for I will make him a great nation."

Quite different from what is claimed in the IslamiCity account.

Comment on Ismail Ax by sausage girl

Cho was a true muslim through and through.

You know what makes a person who they are? It’s their ideas, their beliefs, their psychology and if that psychology is damaged it becomes a pathology.

Cho’s pathology was identical to muslim pathology. That of a total and utter victim.

Hitler wrote an open letter from his bunker hours before his suicide STILL blaming the jews and the communists. 60m dead and he still hadn’t learnt his lesson. A victim to the end.

Palestinian suicide bombers have such little self esteem that instead of taking the noble path of Gandhi or Martin Luther King they believe their best option is to die. Again, the ultimate victims.

Islamic terrorists having to blow up civilians because of American foreign policy. American did it to them. America’s to blame. Once, again. Muslims are the ultimate victims.

Did you hear Cho in the video? “You made me do this. The decision was yours.”

Cho suffered from muslim pathology. One of victimhood.

In this sense Cho was a true muslim.

p.s. islam is the number promoter of the victim pathology. if their was no islam cho would never have done this.

islam has been very successful at promoting the victim mentality around the globe and this is why terrorism is becoming more and more common.

This is very telling, also:

Islamic forums praise ishmael-ismail-ax.

Franklin Graham's assessment:

Cho was filled with evil and Satan was behind the killings.
