Islamic Republic of America?

What is the sin that will cut America’s throat? Immorality? Abortion? Pornography? Mel Gibson?

Surely these are things that incur God’s judgment on the nation. But there is one thing in particular that may doom our way of life. According to my friend Ralph Stice, it’s greed. More specifically, it’s our abject dependence on oil from Muslim nations to fuel our standard of living that may ruin us.

In his book From 9/11 to 666, Stice foresees an eventual collapse of the biggest oil player and American ally, the House of Saud, like a house of cards. With something like 95 percent of Saudis opposed to their own government, it’s not difficult to imagine a popular uprising fomented by Islamic radicals in a virtual replay of the fall of the Shah of Iran in the 1970s. And who can forget that 15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers were Saudis?

What will the United States do when Saud’s 5,000 princes are forced to flee to their villas on the Riviera and their penthouses in London and Paris and Vail? Will we sit idly by when radical Islam turns off the oil spigot until we meet their list of demands? Will we abandon Israel? Will we settle for a lower standard of living and go back to horses and bicycles? Or will we go to war?

The dilemma, however, is that by that time nuclear weapons will be in greater supply in the Middle East theater. Iran is on the verge of going nuclear, and who knows how long it will be before the nukes of Pakistan fall into the hands of radical Islam?

All of these forces are militating in the same direction—i.e., softening up the world arena for a “moderate” Islamic leader possessing the gravitas to entice the beleaguered West into a Pax Islama. Does a seven-year peace treaty with Israel ring any Revelation bells? This man will be known to the Islamic world as the 12th Imam or Mahdi. To students of Scripture, he will be the Antichrist.

Already Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is busily fomenting maximum international chaos—via Hezbollah in Lebanon—to create the conditions considered right for the appearance of the Mahdi. These conditions will eventually be so extreme that even Americans, desperate for peace and for preserving their way of life, will agree to his terms.

Unthinkable? To quote Ralph Stice, “For, it is our greed that not only will back us into a corner, but actually feed tbe monster that will eventually eat us.”
