Radical Islam and Black Liberation Theology
The focus here is NOT Islam, but how BLT imitates what is seen as the extreme, radical form of Islam today. BLT is a religious cover for black racism, and is NOT rooted in Christianity. It is based on hatred and selfishness. You give, they take. Where Jesus said to love one’s neighbor, regardless of race, BLT says to hate the white man, and to damn, and destroy him. BLT is also a political force, using exaggerated victim hood to make a profit off those they hate.
Clarification: Black Liberation Theology opposes the “white” person in the same way Islamic jihadists oppose the kafir (unbeliever).
BLT was created by James Cone. In the following video, he explains that he combined the teachings of Malcom X, a black Muslim who advocated black power, with the teachings of Martin Luther King, who “only” taught the gospel of Jesus, but did not address the black man. (I wonder where he was during the civil rights movement?) Somehow, he needed to “improve” on the gospel of Jesus, by incorporating the black power concept from Islam, to make it appealing to the black man. Jesus becomes a black man who was “lynched.”See the following commentary on the Cone video as well on this site:

Black liberation theology was quite popular in South Africa in the 1970s and 1980s, particularly in academic circles. Some of its exponents, like Alan Boesak, became political activists.
Islam liberation theology and Black Liberation Theology are connected. BLT is also at the root of the white farmer massacres in South Africa. These people brought prosperity to the region and shared it with the populace. Now, they are being butchered for it.

Center for the Study of Political Islam
Barack Obama has closely aligned himself with Reverend Jeremiah Wright and Black Liberation Theology (BLT). When viewed from the Christian point-of-view, BLT is a strange creed, but when seen from the standpoint of Islam, there is a very strong parallel.
Islam and BLT are theologies that have a political goal of making all politics submit to their demands. Submission is the political goal.
Islam and BLT are both based upon the principle of duality. The Koran divides up humanity into Muslims and the kafirs (unbelievers).
BLT has a god that divides humanity into blacks and whites. But the duality is not the division, but a complete separation that is ethical, political, cultural and religious. The believer has nothing in common with the kafir/white. Allah loves the Muslim and a black god loves the blacks.
Allah preaches violence against the kafirs and helps Muslims to kill them. The Koran says that cruelty and hatred of the kafir is a sacred duty for Muslims.
BLT does not preach violence against whites, but excuses and justifies it. BLT also justifies black crime as a legal way for oppressed blacks to strike back at the white oppressors. It sees a rapist or killer of whites as a revolutionary committing a legitimate act of a just war.
Here we have a quote from James Cone, the father of BLT:
“What we need is the divine love as expressed in black power, which is the power of blacks to destroy their oppressors, here and now, by any and all means at their disposal” [James Cone, A Black Theology of Liberation, p. 70]
Neither radical Islam nor BLT ever acknowledges the suffering of its enemies.
Jihad has killed over 270 million kafirs over the last 1400 years, but there has never been any acknowledgment of the destruction of kafirs.
In Mohammed’s official biography, the Sira, there are hundreds of pages devoted to jihad against the kafirs. There is not one time when Mohammed expressed remorse about the beheading, torturing, killing, raping and robbery of the kafirs. Indeed, there are many occasions when he laughed at the kafirs’ suffering.
The duality of total separateness from the kafir/white creates an ethical position. Ethics become dualistic.
The kafir/white is treated differently from the “brother/sister“. Since Allah/black God hates and plots against kafirs/whites there is no empathy with the victims of the aggression. There is no remorse and, therefore, there is never an apology. There is nothing to apologize for. Allah/black God wanted them dead, so there is no need to weep.
This dualism in ethics means that the kafir/white can be deceived, robbed, insulted, raped, brutalized and killed in the name of good.
However, injuries to Islam are never forgotten, no matter how long ago they happened. Witness the ranting about the Crusades, which happened seven hundred years ago. BLT has a similar fixation on the injury of slavery, the “original sin” of America.
Demands for apologies from the kafir/white are a standard fare of Islam/BLT. But any injury to the kafir/white is justified by the ethical doctrine.
The Koran is filled with insults against kafirs. Mohammed used both insults and name-calling as a form of jihad. As seen in Rev. Wright’s sermons, insults and curses against whitey are accepted fare.
In Islamic politics nothing about the kafir has any merit. The kafir is without redeeming qualities or contributions to humanity. Inside of BLT, whites are the source of all evil and suffering in the world.
White culture is seen as inherently bad and there is no goodness in whites, except for those who submit to black demands in all things, in short, race dhimmis.
Islam/BLT is easily offended. The offense can cause threats and bullying. If the verbal hostility does not work then come the street riots. Islam/BLT has no compunction about the riot hurting their own economies.
The reason for so many parallels between Islam and BLT is that they are both based upon the same principles—submission and duality.
Since Islam views white America as an enemy, BLT see Islam as the “enemy of my enemy” and therefore is a friend. Witness the award that Rev. Wright gave Louis Farrakhan as an outstanding person. This comradeship is temporary.
When the time comes and Islam is fully ascendant, BLT will find out that radical Islam has been using them, just as Islam uses the Left. In the end, radical Islam will annihilate BLT for the simple reason that Islam demands political submission from ALL, not the just the whites.
Islam is the greater submission/duality system since it can grow by converting kafirs into believers.
For BLT the vision is a separate and permanent minority. A white cannot become a black. BLT has a very limited enclave/ghetto mentality, whereas Islam has a world conquest outlook.

To be “politically incorrect”: How stupid can some blacks be to fall for this evil theology of radical Islam? It is not the white man that sold them into slavery. It is the Muslim slave sellers whom they identify with. They are fools.
Thomas Sowell [Thomas Sowell, Race and Culture, BasicBooks, 1994, p. 188] estimates that 11 million slaves were shipped across the Atlantic and 14 million were sent to the Islamic nations of North Africa and the Middle East.
For 25 million slaves delivered to the market, we have an estimated death of about 120 million people. Only 25/120 = 20% survived.
Radical Islam ran the wholesale slave trade in Africa.
Why are blacks running after the radical Muslim ways, and trying to be like those who made them slaves to begin with? Don’t they know they will end up as slaves once more?
Black Liberation Theology has nothing to do with Jesus or Christianity. It is a false Christian cover for Islamic manipulation of black people.
It, like radical Islam, is anti-Semitic, since Jews are “white.”
I feel this is very unfortunate, and very unfair to sincere people who believe in this delusion, and actually wish to follow Christ in their spiritual life.
Rev. Wright, Obama’s pastor, is more a student of Islam, than Christianity.
