Though it may have been a day of rest for most, Avi Lipkin was very active on Sunday at the Elks Hall in Ponoka.

Lipkin has written several books on the threats of Islam and conveyed his message to more than 100 interested listeners. He hopes to bring Jewish people and Christians to join together to combat the threat of Islam.

The audience was riveted as Lipkin told of his experiences and explained the threats the religion will impose. “This is not Israel’s problem, this is the world’s problem.”

He described the Islamic faith as a “psychosis,” and described them to have desires of destroying the world.

“(They believe) five-sixths of the human race has to be killed so that one-sixth of the human race, the Muslims, can go ahead and kill each other.”

Lipkin hopes people will wake up and see what he sees before it’s too late.

“This is a battle for Judaea, Christian, western civilization and democracy and we’re beginning to lose it in America and we’ve already lost it in Europe.”

Lipkin also showed his concern with United States president Barack Obama. Referring to the president’s inaugural speech in which Obama said the United States is a “Christian-Muslim nation,” Lipkin responded.

“Christian-Muslim goes together like God (and the) devil.”

He believes the world is in for shocking changes in the very near future.

“We are going to be seeing things we’ve never seen before. I believe we are the generation that will receive the Messiah in Jerusalem.”

The statements may have sounded extreme to some but Lipkin said there are issues with the Muslim culture that should not be ignored.

“Did you ever hear in the Old Testament and the New Testament about chopping off arms and legs? This is specifically an Arabian custom.”

After Lipkin wrapped up his two-hour speech, it appeared most everyone in attendance was in agreement with his opinions.

“I think (his opinions) were right on and I agree whole-heartedly and I’d support him any day,” said Janet Heispad.

Bernice Edwards arranged to have the well-travelled speaker stop in Ponoka and she was thrilled with the way the event turned out.

“We actually had hoped for 70 people. So we’re very happy because we think this message is worthwhile. Awareness is better than ignorance.”

Edwards phoned to make a donation to Lipkin after hearing his opinions and was directed to another phone number. She was pleasantly surprised with who answered the call.

“I phone this number and lo and behold here I am talking to Avi. So I introduced myself. He was planning on travelling through Alberta in the summer. So we agreed to set this up.”

Lipkin has written several books and also has tapings of his speeches. He is currently forming a party to join Christians and Jews together to better combat the growing threat of Islam.
