Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Islam as Perpetual Predation


Gordon Osmond, writing at Open Salon, discusses “Islam as Religion”  His second paragraph raises an important issue and fails to settle it.

Even if this bridge is crossed, however, and even if Islam is characterized as a religion, it certainly does not follow that parts of that religion which comprise “law” should be given any degree of precedence over or protection from United States law and basic United States values.  The United States has earned the right to consider those laws and values sacrosanct.

That bridge between Islam and the First Amendment’s free exercise clause must not be crossed.  Islam is a way of life, not a religion. Everything Allah and Moe commanded is law.  Examine the table of contents  of Sahih Bukhari, considered to be the most authentic of the six canonical hadith collections.

Islamic law encompasses all of human life, it is not limited to religious issues.  That is because Islam is a complete, all encompassing way of life, not a religion.  That way of life is predatory, and its pray are  those who disbelieve.  Book O defines jihad, describing its obligatory nature and objectives.  Did you notice the two classes of people  upon whom war is waged?  Did you notice the rules regarding spoilation  and the  division of spoils?   For those who can not connect the data points, I present links to a few relevant ayat and one relevant hadith.

Why does the “religion of peace” have laws fixing the allocation of spoils?  Why did Allah give Moe special dispensation to collect spoils?   For those who can not connect the data points, I present another saying.

Sunan Abu Dawud Book 23, Number 3455:

Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar:

I heard the Apostle of Allah, (peace_be_upon_him) say: When you enter into the inah transaction, hold the tails of oxen, are pleased with agriculture, and give up conducting jihad (struggle in the way of Allah). Allah will make disgrace prevail over you, and will not withdraw it until you return to your original religion.

Two alternative ways of life are presented, agriculture and jihad. What is the consequence of rejecting jihad in favor of agriculture?  What is their “original religion”?

Osmond’s concluding paragraph brings up an extremely important issue; I added emphasis to the critical clause.

Religion is basically a matter of believing in spooky people and things, and there’s probably nothing spookier than Islamic spooks.  But as long as these beliefs do not threaten the concepts of human dignity and freedom, there’s probably no harm done in considering Islam, as a general matter, a religion.  But strings attached there certainly are.

Does Islam threaten human dignity and freedom?  Two ayat contain jihad imperatives:

Those commands to wage war are codified in Reliance of the Traveller, Book O9.8-9.   I will show you enough to  confirm what I have already stated and arouse your curiosity. Click the links for full documentation.

The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o11.4)
http://www.crusadersarmory.co.cc/RelianceO9-8.html

The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim (O: because they are not a people with a Book, nor honored as such, and are not permitted to settle with paying the poll tax (jizya) ) http://www.crusadersarmory.co.cc/RelianceO9-9.html

Does waging war  against us impair our dignity and freedom?  Consider  what Moe said about the matter,  paying special attention to the clauses I emphasized.

Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah.” Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, “O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?” He replied, “Whoever says, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’, faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have.”

Are our blood and property sacred to Muslims?  How do we obtain human rights?    If you can accurately answer those two questions, you will understand how Islam conflicts with our dignity  & rights.   It will then be clear to you exactly why Islam can not fit under the umbrella of  the free exercise clause.

Park 51: the Big Lie


Robert Spencer commented on an interview of Sharif El-Gamal conducted by Aziz Poonawalla and published at BeliefNet.  The article is fairly long and well.   worth reading but I will link to it instead of reproducing it here. I have excerpted one paragraph  from one answer in order to  expose  al-taqiyya with maximum clarity.

Sharif El-Gamal, owner of the property slated for Ground Zero mega-mosque, explains it all for you

9. How do you make the case for supporting Park 51 to the local Muslim American community? Doesn’t Park 51 undermine support for (and even actively harm) more pragmatic mosque projects in Sheepshead Bay and Staten Island?
…I believe that our model represents the best of American and Muslim values. More people need to know the truth about Islam, and that’s that Islam is a peaceful religion, a compassionate religion, which preaches service to all. Unfortunately, there is some opposition to Muslim projects which is driven by hate and negativity, and we should be concerned by this. ….

Al-taqiyya is Islamic dissimulation for the purpose of self – protection or advancing the cause of Islam.  Lets examine  what Sharif El-Gamal said.

  • the truth about Islam
    • a peaceful religion
    • a compassionate religion
    • preaches service to all

Are those statements true or false? Lets take them on one at a time for clarity’s sake.

  • a peaceful religion
    • 2:216. Jihâd (holy fighting in Allâh’s Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allâh knows but you do not know.
      • defensive jihad
        • 22:39. Permission to fight is given to those (i.e. believers against disbelievers), who are fighting them, (and) because they (believers) have been wronged, and surely, Allâh is Able to give them (believers) victory
        • 2:190. And fight in the Way of Allâh those who fight you, but transgress not the limits. Truly, Allâh likes not the transgressors. [This Verse is the first one that was revealed in connection with Jihâd, but it was supplemented by another (V.9:36)].
        • 2:191. And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah is worse than killing. And fight not with them at Al-Masjid-al-Harâm (the sanctuary at Makkah), unless they (first) fight you there. But if they attack you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers.
      • offensive jihad
        • 8:39. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allâh), then certainly, Allâh is All-Seer of what they do.
        • 9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
        • 9:123. O you who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allâh is with those who are the Al-Muttaqûn (the pious – see V.2:2).
    • 9:111. Verily, Allâh has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allâh’s Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Qur’ân. And who is truer to his covenant than Allâh? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success .
      • 9:38. O you who believe! What is the matter with you, that when you are asked to march forth in the Cause of Allâh (i.e. Jihâd) you cling heavily to the earth? Are you pleased with the life of this world rather than the Hereafter? But little is the enjoyment of the life of this world as compared with the Hereafter.
      • 9:39. If you march not forth, He will punish you with a painful torment and will replace you by another people, and you cannot harm Him at all, and Allah is Able to do all things.
      • 61:10. O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will save you from a painful torment.
      • 61:11. That you believe in Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad), and that you strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allâh with your wealth and your lives, that will be better for you, if you but know!
    • Confirmation:
      • hadith:
        • Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387:
          Narrated Anas bin Malik:
          Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah.” Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, “O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?” He replied, “Whoever says, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’, faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have.”
        • Sunan Abu Dawud Book 23, Number 3455:
          Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar:

          I heard the Apostle of Allah, (peace_be_upon_him) say: When you enter into the inah transaction, hold the tails of oxen, are pleased with agriculture, and give up conducting jihad (struggle in the way of Allah). Allah will make disgrace prevail over you, and will not withdraw it until you return to your original religion.

      • Islamic law Reliance of the Traveller
        • O9.0…Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada signifying warfare to establish the religion. And it is the lesser jihad. As for the greater jihad, it is spiritual warfare against the lower self (nafs), which is why the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said as he was returning from jihad….
        • O9.1 …As for subsequent times, there are two possible states in respect to non-Muslims.

          The first is when they are in their own countries, in which case jihad (def: o9.8) is a communal obligation, and this is what our author is speaking of when he says, “Jihad is a communal obligation,” meaning upon the Muslims each year….

        • O9.8 … The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o11.4) -which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High,…
        • O9.9 The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim (O: because they are not a people with a Book, nor honored as such, and are not permitted to settle with paying the poll tax (jizya) )…
  • It becomes clear that Islam is militant, not peaceful. The ordinance of Jihad, Allah’s purchase of the Muslims for that purpose, salvation through jihad, the fard al-kifaya of annual ghazwat  and the clear statements of what the caliph does in the regular course of business make that fatal fact unmistakable.
  • a compassionate religion
    • Sahih Muslim Book 017, Number 4187:

      ‘A’isha reported that the Quraish had been anxious about the Makhzumi woman who had committed theft, and said: Who will speak to Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) about her? They said: Who dare it, but Usama, the loved one of Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him)? So Usama spoke to him. Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: Do you intercede regarding one of the punishments prescribed by Allah? He then stood up and addressed (people) saying: O people, those who have gone before you were destroyed, because if any one of high rank committed theft amongst them, they spared him; and it anyone of low rank committed theft, they inflicted the prescribed punishment upon him. By Allah, if Fatima, daughter of Muhammad, were to steal, I would have her hand cut off. In the hadith transmitted on the authority of Ibn Rumh (the words are):” Verily those before you perished.”

    • Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 280:

      Narrated Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri:

      When the tribe of Bani Quraiza was ready to accept Sad’s judgment, Allah’s Apostle sent for Sad who was near to him. Sad came, riding a donkey and when he came near, Allah’s Apostle said (to the Ansar), “Stand up for your leader.” Then Sad came and sat beside Allah’s Apostle who said to him. “These people are ready to accept your judgment.” Sad said, “I give the judgment that their warriors should be killed and their children and women should be taken as prisoners.” The Prophet then remarked, “O Sad! You have judged amongst them with (or similar to) the judgment of the King Allah.”

  • That makes it two out of three.
  • preaches service to all
    • H8.24

      It is not permissible to give zakat to a non-Muslim, or to someone whom one is obliged to support (def: m12.1), such as a wife or family member.

  • Zakat is obligatory charity which must be paid annually on accumulated wealth and financial transactions. Sharif El-Gamal has struck out.

My opposition to Islam is driven by knowledge of what Islam is and does, not by hatred & negativity.
