Fox News provided a transcript of President Obama’s remarks, click the link to read the lies in context. I will quote and refute the worst of the lies.
end of our combat mission in Iraq
We still have troops on the ground in theater, and they will be targeted by suicide bombers and IEDs. The casualties; waste of life and limb have moved into a new phase, they have not ended.
ongoing security challenges
Islamic terrorism, both home grown and international remains a serious threat to our security. Iraq and Afghanistan remain members in good standing of the set of terrorist sponsoring states. Iran continues on the fast track to nuclear ascension, while China rapidly expands its military might. North Korea continues to threaten renewed conflict.
rebuild our nation here at home
That kind of malignant malarkey has no place in a message about national security. President Obama is mixing domestic demagoguery with national security demagoguery. We do not need to rebuild, we need to reverse the government policies & actions that have stifled economic activity.
confidence and commitment
Insufficient confidence & commitment is what got us into this mess. The war is lost precisely because Shrub lacked the confidence & commitment to accurately identify and engage the enemy. He tried to do an invasion on the cheap, and it proved costly.
war to disarm a state
LibTards continue to ignore the distinction between dynamic and static conditions. If we disarm a state, it will eventually rearm if we do not continually occupy and dominate it. If we destroy a state, and completely eliminate it, it will not return to threaten us again. LibTards just can’t figure that out.
Terrorism and sectarian warfare
Both were entirely predictable and were predicted. Both could have been at least partially suppressed had we employed sufficient force from the outset. Shrub, fearing both domestic and international criticism, tried to do it on the cheap and failed miserably. Enemy assets fell into the hands of those most willing to use them against us because we failed to secure them in a timely manner.
opportunity to embrace a new destiny
When you can’t identify the enemy, you can’t win the war. Islam is the enemy. The majority of Iraq’s population remains Muslim. Iraq’s new constitution makes Shari’ah the primary source of its law. Iraq remains in the same rut, only the regime has changed.
That idiocy, a leftover from Shrub, would be comedic if it were not so tragic. By some legerdemain of arrogance & conceit, Shrub set out to train the enemy to prevent terrorists from using Iraq as a staging ground. He set out to train Shi’ia & Sunni not to slaughter each other. The Iraqui security forces are thoroughly infiltrated by terrorists. Obama maintains Shrub’s tradition of cognitive dissonance.
“Tonight, I encourage Iraq’s leaders to move forward with a sense of urgency to form an inclusive government that is just, representative, and accountable to the Iraqi people.”
just, representative, accountable
And Islamic? The combination is impossible, and Obama knows it. Corruption abounds, and there is great division and no will to compromise.
They are Muslims, idiot. Allah explicitly commands them not to take Kuffar as partners.
We have no mutual interest with Islam. Islam’s interest is total world conquest and domination, so that only Allah is worshiped altogether and everywhere; so that Shari’ah is enforced globally. Our interest is in liberty, security, prosperity & peace. There is no intersection, no convergence; nothing shared.
There is no mutual respect and can be none. Islam is contemptuous of everything un-Islamic. Islam hates our way of life without reservation and seeks to destroy it. It labels us Kuffar: rebells against Allah who must be defeated and gathered together into Hell.
our own interest
Our interest is in victory, not ignominious defeat thinly disguised. We wasted blood and treasure because we were unwilling to name and engage the enemy.
belief we share with the Iraqi people
How can anyone be stupid enough to believe that? We got rid of Saddam and replaced him with Shi’ites. We gained nothing.
met our responsibility
We failed to secure Iraq’s arsenals and ammunition dumps. We failed to secure their banks, museums and oil infrastructure. We failed to eliminate Islam from Iraq because we made no effort at all.
learn from our experience
We did not learn from Vietnam. We should have learned to seize and hold territory 24/7. We should have learned to secure borders and eliminate sanctuaries & supply lines. We did not learn from Tehran. We should have learned to use massive, disproportionate force early on. We did not learn from Somalia either.
fight against Al Qaeda
Our enemy is Islam, not a sub set of Islam. What part of 8:39 & 9:29 does President Obama not comprehend? What part of “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…” does he not comprehend?
those who attacked us on 9/11
We were attacked by Muslims, motivated by the damnable doctrines of Islam which sanctify & mandate genocidal conquest & terrorism. Who has the courage to state the fact that security and peace are functions of eliminating Islam from the world? Certainly not our President!
disrupt, dismantle, and defeat Al Qaeda
Which availeth naught, because its parent organizations: al Ikhwan al-Muslimeen & Islam remain undaunted.
base for terrorists
So long as the population and government of Afghanistan or any other nation remain Islamic, they will be a base for terrorists.
break the Taliban’s momentum
Idiot! We need to kill them! When you go on the offensive, you kill the enemy and destroy their infrastructure. Breaking their momentum is the wrong objective.
They never learn. You can’t push a piece of string. You must put it around Islam’s neck and pull it tight. If you want peace anywhere on the globe, eliminate Islam from that place. Foundational Islamic doctrine requires the elimination of Israel and Jews. No matter what demands you make against Israel, she will never obtain peace and security without first eliminating Islam from the region. Peace can only be obtained through victory, and victory by extinction of Islam.
defeat on the battlefield
Islam can not be defeated on the battlefield. It must be destroyed by emancipating Allah’s slaves. We will have victory when they are all emancipated or dead, not before. Until that happy day there will be neither peace nor security. Islam is perpetual war. We must stop electing stupid people who can not recognize that fatal fact.
willing to work together
The set of people willing to work together to expand freedom and opportunity and the set of Muslims are mutually exclusive. There is no intersection of those sets. Islam is slavery, the polar opposite of freedom. Islam is plunder, the polar opposite of productivity & opportunity.
growing middle class
How swiftly and smoothly president Obama segues from defense deception to domestic deception; from military warfare to class warfare. The imprudent spendthrift policies and economic meddling of Obama’s party have brought us to our present low state. Yes, Republicans who lacked the courage to resist aided them in their demolition of our economy.
We need economic expansion, not redistribution! Get your boot off our necks! Make Shrub’s tax cuts permanent. Enact further tax cuts. Save the funds unspent in the imprudent “bail out” & “stimulus”. Open all domestic oil fields to exploration and production both on and off shore. And repeal the potentially disastrous “health care reform”!
honor our commitments to veterans
Is that any less than the ultimate arrogant demagoguery? He blathers about commitments, expecting us to forget how he tried to screw the veterans! We’ve got to impeach that creep!!!
age without surrender ceremonies
There was a surrender ceremony the year before I was born. Why should it be the last?
Tom Trento o the Florida Security Council has a revelation for you. You are about to view Imam Mahdi Bray & George Galloway raising funds for HAMAS at the Al-Rahman Mosque in Orlando Florida.
In this video, you will see Mahdi Bray making a physical expression of his support for HAMAS & Hizbollah. You will see Geoge Galloway remitting funds to HAMAS at a terrorist pep rally. You will hear the leader shout Takbir and the crowd respond with Allahu Akhbar!! You will see and hear evidence of extreme enthusiasm for institutions of great evil, institutions with blood on their hands.
Later in the vidio, you will hear them shout Takbir and the congregation reply Allahu Akhbar!! with the same enthusiasm displayed in the HAMAS rally. You will see them raising money for HAMAS in a Florida Mosque.
Zakat is obligatory charity, a 2.5% tax on accumulated wealth and financial transactions. Zakat is detailed in Book h of Reliance of the Traveller, the handbook of Shafi’ite Fiqh, essentially Shari’ah. This is a recognized part of Islamic law. There are eight classes of recipients, each of which receives one eighth of the total Zakat collected. The seventh category is detailed in h8.17 to which I have added emphasis. One eighth of zakat goes to the terrorists.
h8.17 The seventh category is those fighting for
Allah, meaning people engaged in Islamic military
operations for whom no salary has been allotted in
the army roster (0: but who are volunteers for
jihad without remuneration). They are given
enough to suffice them for the operation, even if
affluent; of weapons, mounts, clothing, and
expenses (0: for the duration of the journey,
round trip, and the time they spend there, even if
prolonged. Though nothing has been mentioned
here of the expense involved in supporting such
people’s families during this period, it seems clear
that they should also be given it).
A special zakat is due at the end of Ramadan. Do they collect it in food in urban areas, or do they collect it in cash, divide it and send 1/8 to HAMAS & co.?
when the sun sets on the night before the ‘Eid

On August 27, John Esposito uttered and the On Faith Panel of News Week & The Washington Post published Is Islam a primary driver or cause of terrorism? which attracted my attention while I read an article by Jordan Sekulow: Imam Rauf should apologize. While I generally agree with Sekulow, I admit that an apology from the Imam would not alter my attitude, even if I thought it to be sincere. Nor would I be satisfied by relocation of the Park 51 project.
I skimmed Esposito’s article and discovered a spew of al-Taqiyya which deserves refutation. As is my habit, I will quote the most egregious passages and let those who want to read the entire article use the link above.
Allah, through his conquest imperatives, legitimatizes aggression. Is it legitimate to wage war because your intended victim does not share your beliefs & ritual practices? Surah Al-Anfal 38 identifies “those who have disbelieved” as the target of violence commanded in the next verse : 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… . The explicit casus belli is disbelief. Allah & his slaves think that is legitimate, do you?
In Surah At-Taubah, Allah commands Muslims to fight Jews & Christians until they are subjugated and make annual extortion payments called jizya.
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. Is disbelief a legitimate casus belli? You be the judge. In my opinion, John Esposito practiced kitman to convey a false impression.
Quran does not advocate terrorism
That is not what Allah said. In Surah Al-Imran 3:151. We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allâh, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrongdoers). What did Allah say he would do? That could be a reference to the afterlife, is it? Here is the answer from Tafsir Al-Jalalayn. “We will cast terror (read ru‘b or ru‘ub) into the hearts of the disbelievers: after departing from Uhud they resolved to return in order to exterminate the Muslims, but they were terrified and did not return;…”
Islam does not get off so easily, the reference is temporal, not eterna. In Surah Al Anfal, Allah again says that he will cast terror. 8:12. (Remember) when your Lord inspired the angels, “Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes.”
Yeah, right, Allah issued the command to the angels; so why was he reminding his companions of the command? Obviously it was something he wanted them to do. Examine verse 57 carefully. 8:57. So if you gain the mastery over them in war, punish them severely in order to disperse those who are behind them, so that they may learn a lesson. The meaning reaches full clarity in the light of Surah Al-Hashr 2.
59:2. He it is Who drove out the disbelievers among the people of the Scripture (i.e. the Jews of the tribe of Banî An-Nadîr) from their homes at the first gathering. You did not think that they would get out. And they thought that their fortresses would defend them from Allâh! But Allâh’s (Torment) reached them from a place whereof they expected it not, and He cast terror into their hearts, so that they destroyed their own dwellings with their own hands and the hands of the believers. Then take admonition, O you with eyes (to see).
Allah terrorized the Bani An-Nadir so that they destroyed their own settlement, so you should take admonition. Learn a lesson : take admonition. Get it? By what agency did Allah cast terror? Verse 13 has a clue for you. 59:13. Verily, you (believers in the Oneness of Allâh – Islâmic Monotheism) are more awful as a fear in their (Jews of Banî An-Nadîr) breasts than Allâh. That is because they are a people who comprehend not (the Majesty and Power of Allâh).
The Jews were more afraid of Moe’s army than of Allah. Ain’t that the general idea? Examine Abdullah Yusuf Ali’s translation of 8:60. Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of God and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom God doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of God, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly. [Emphasis added.]
Maximize your army to strike terror. Got that clue yet?
distorts and misinterprets
What did Allah command Muslims to do? What did Moe and his “rightly guided caliphs” do? Just how did Islam expand to rule all of Arabia, northern Africa, southern Europe and nearly half of Asia? Sahih Bukhari’s books of Jihad, Khumus & Expedition have some clues for you. Sure, there is an injunction against suicide. There is a difference between wasting your death and killing Jews or pagans. Get a clue. The phrase “fought until he was killed” occurs in several ahadith. Sunan Abu Dawud 14.2567, Sahih Muslim 19.4413, 20.4678,4679,4681,4683.
no support for hostage taking
A search of Hilali & Khan’s Noble Qur’an turned up ten matching Surahs for “ransom”. Most of them are not relevant, but one is particularly relevant.
8:67. It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allâh desires (for you) the Hereafter.
The parenthetical expressions come from tafsirs used in the translation. Allah reprimanded Moe for not killing enough of the enemy because he wanted ransom money. Tafsir Al-Jalalayn makes matters abundantly clear. “The following was revealed when they ransomed those taken captive at Badr: It is not for any Prophet to have (read as an takūna lahu or an yakūna lahu) prisoners until he has made slaughter in the land, going all the way in fighting disbelievers. You, O believers, desire the transient things of this world, its ephemeral gains, by ransoming, while God desires, for you, the Hereafter, that is, its reward, through your killing them; and God is Mighty, Wise: this was abrogated by His words [and set them free] afterward either with grace or by ransom [Q. 47:4].”
Surah Muhammad 4, as mentioned in the tafsir, reinforces the concept beyond all doubt. 47:4. So, when you meet (in fight Jihâd in Allâh’s Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on them, i.e. take them as captives). Thereafter (is the time) either for generosity (i.e. free them without ransom), or ransom (according to what benefits Islâm), until the war lays down its burden. Thus [you are ordered by Allâh to continue in carrying out Jihâd against the disbelievers till they embrace Islâm (i.e. are saved from the punishment in the Hell-fire) or at least come under your protection], but if it had been Allâh’s Will, He Himself could certainly have punished them (without you). But (He lets you fight), in order to test you, some with others. But those who are killed in the Way of Allâh, He will never let their deeds be lost,
Moe was given permission to release captives for ransom after he had killed a sufficient number.
Islam’s relationship to violence and terrorism
What is that relationship, if not that which is revealed in the Qur’an & hadith? What texts do the “extremists” quote?
causes of global terrorism
Islamic doctrine. Not poverty, not repression, not occupation, not ignorance, not illiteracy; Islamic doctrine. What did Allah command them to do? What did Moe do? The objective is accumulating “good deeds” to weigh against their sins on judgment day. If one does not die in battle, his sins are weighed against his “good deeds”. Allah has a clue for you in Surah At-Taubah 120, I will emphasize the crucial clause for clarity. 9:120. It was not becoming of the people of Al-Madinah and the bedouins of the neighbourhood to remain behind Allâh’s Messenger (Muhammad when fighting in Allâh’s Cause) and (it was not becoming of them) to prefer their own lives to his life. That is because they suffer neither thirst nor fatigue, nor hunger in the Cause of Allâh, nor they take any step to raise the anger of disbelievers nor inflict any injury upon an enemy but is written to their credit as a deed of righteousness. Surely, Allâh wastes not the reward of the Muhsinûn
Muslims earn Brownie points by angering or injuring disbelievers. That is the cause of terrorism.
Religiously legitimated violence
The most effective lies have a little sliver of truth mixed in to disguise them. That last quote is exemplary. I already detailed the religious legitimation. The obligation is fard al-kifaya, outlined in Reliance of the Traveller, o9.1. The minimum requirement is one attack per year. The word reward occurs in 60 surahs. Surah As-Saff 12 mentions the reward for participation in jihad. 61.12 (If you do so) He will forgive you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow, and pleasant dwelling in Gardens of ‘Adn Eternity [‘Adn (Edn) Paradise], that is indeed the great success. To see their reward, begin reading at 56:10.
Hector Aleem Update 08/27/10
This video was shot on the 23rd, the intervening days were used in creating the sub titles. The tape was made on the occasion of a court hearing. Hector was speaking softly because the taping was clandestine. I expect that when the Paki’s find out about it, he will pay in pain.
There is no justice for Christians in Islam dominated areas. I do not know the extent to which Pakistani law mirrors Shari’ah, I only know that this is the standard set by Umdat al-Salik.

When ABC Radio News came on, they broadcast a sound byte which sent me on an urgent mission to the bathroom. The sound byte was from Mayor Bloomberg’s Iftar. I found Bloomberg’s prepared remarks at The Page. I am not going to reproduce Mark Halperin’s article here, I will quote the most egregious excrement out of context & out of sequence; if you want to read it all in context, use the link above.
Here is the sound bite that pissed me off.
Islam did not attack
When the hijackers slit the throats of the flight crews, they pronounced the takbir, praising the demon whose name is Allah. Allahhu Akhbar means “Allah is greater.”. They murdered the flight crews in Allah’s name, that makes it an Islamic act.
Al-Qaeda is only a name, an artificial subdivision of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood is only a name, an artificial subdivision of Ummah al-Islamiyya. I refer damned fools, liars, doubters, deniers & dissenters to the Charter of HAMAS, which defines the Falestinian branch of al-Ikhwan-al-Muslimeen.
The Islamic Resistance Movement: The Movement’s programme is Islam. From it, it draws its ideas, ways of thinking and understanding of the universe, life and man. It resorts to it for judgement in all its conduct, and it is inspired by it for guidance of its steps.
Allah is its target, the Prophet is its model, the Koran its constitution: Jihad is its path and death for the sake of Allah is the loftiest of its wishes. [Emphasis & link added.]
Who is the Brotherhood’s target? Who is its model? What is its constitution? What is its highest aspiration? How in Hell does that differ from Islam! Al-Ikhwan-al-Muslimeen, HAMAS & al-Qaeda are Islam, nothing more, nothing less. Their ideology is Islam’s ideology.
implicate all of Islam
What the Hell did they say? In whose name did they slit throats? What did he command them to do?
- 9:5. … then kill the Mushrikûn (see V.2:105) wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and prepare for them each and every ambush….
- 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.
Allah commanded Muslims to wage war against us until we are subjugated and make annual extortion payments. What did Moe say?
- 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.” [Emphasis added.]
Why did Moe say that he was ordered to fight the people? Who gave him that order? What is the practical application of that order? How is it implemented?
- …Allah commanded His Messenger to fight the People of the Scriptures, Jews and Christians, on the ninth year of Hijrah, and he prepared his army to fight the Romans and called the people to Jihad announcing his intent and destination. The Messenger sent his intent to various Arab areas around Al-Madinah to gather forces, and he collected an army of thirty thousand…. [The Order to fight People of the Scriptures until They give the Jizyah]
- 09.1 Jihad is a communal obligation (def: c3.2). When enough people perform it to successfully accomplish it, it is no longer obligatory upon others…
- …If none of those concerned perform jihad, and it does not happen at all, then everyone who is aware that it is obligatory is guilty of sin, if there was a possibility of having performed it. In the time of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) jihad was a communal obligation after his emigration (hijra) to Medina. 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: 09.8) 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…. [Emphasis added.]
- “The least that the imam must do is that he allow no year to pass without having organised a military expedition by himself, or by his raiding parties, according to the Muslims’ interest, so that the jihad will only be stopped in a year for a (reasonable) excuse.”
- o9.8 Thc caliph (025) 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: 01 L4)-which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (0: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (0: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High, “Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled” (Koran 9:29),…
Why is neglecting jihad sinful? Why is jihad required in every year? Why did Al-Shafi’i rule that jihad must be performed annually, if possible?
actions of a few
Jihad is fard al-kifaya; communally binding until a sufficient number have responded to the front. (Undat al-Salik o9.1) Full mobilization is only required (fard ayn) when Dar ul-Islam is invaded. Those few are the believers [8:2, 49:15 ] who have been purchased by Allah as slaves to fight in his cause, kill and be killed.
twisted a great religion
I showed you Allah’s imperative, Moe’s confirmation, and their codification in Shari’ah. What was twisted? It is Islam, stupid; it ain’t Judaism and it ain’t Christianity. It ain’t al-Qaeda. It is Islam, stupid!
we are not at war with Islam
True, Islam is at war against us, but our elected leadership is too stupid, dishonest, cowardly & treasonous to acknowledge the fact and reciprocate.
at war with Al-Qaeda
Shrub declared “war on terror”, which is a tactic of Islam, not an enemy.
and other extremists
The founder of Islam revealed the Jihad imperatives. The founder of Islam exemplified compliance with them and bragged that he was “made victorious with terror”. Moe is the standard. What Moe preached and practiced is normative Islam, not extremism!
who hate freedom
They hate kufr: rebellion against Allah (disbelief). They hate everything not Islamic.
The Burlington Coat factory took a direct hit; part of one aircraft projected through the tower and penetrated the roof, passing through two floors. That makes it part of ground zero.
Terror is not an enemy, it is a tactic. Islam is fighting us and we need to fight Islam. Freedom is our highest value, not a tactic, neither is it a weapon. If we desire to remain alive and free, then we must retaliate and eliminate the enemy which attacked us in the 19th century and resumed attacking us in the 20th .
Freedom must be reciprocal. Islam does not reciprocate, it enslaves. We are not obligated to give our enemy a staging ground and weapons from which and with which to attack us.
The First Amendment’s free exercise clause is meant to protect legitimate religions, not war cults. Islam sanctifies conquest, genocide & terrorism. How in Hell can there be a right to perform genocidal conquest, which is a “religious obligation” in Islam? If there is a right to practice Islam, then Muslims have a right to kill us, rape our widows and enslave our orphans. If such rights exist, our rights are abrogated.
The Ground Zero Declaration came to my attention through a Google Alert that led to a post by Ali Sina at Faith Freedom.org. The brainchild of Billy Rojas and Centroids, the declaration begins by affirming the Declaration of Independence & Bill of Rights.
After the affirmation, it lists four prticular items: freedom of religion, equal protection, human dignity and peaceful assembly & free speech.
In that fourth item, it specifies freedom to criticize religions, which will stick in Islam’s eye like a sharp grain of sand.
The next section carries an interesting heading: “The Problem With Cordoba House”. The concluding sentence of that section is particularly interesting. “Allowing Muslims to build an Islamic center so near the scene of Islam-inspired death implies that neither we nor they have truly learned the painful lessons of 9/11.”
The next section, “What We Want”, leads off with a most direct sentence. “If Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is serious about promoting a new Reformed Islam that divorces itself completely from the ideology that brought down the World Trade Center, we ask him and his colleagues to officially:”
There follows an enumerated list of three things no Muslim can do without incurring the penalty of apostasy and a demand that the Ground Zero Mosque project be postponed, reconfigured or relocated.
The concluding sentence has more clarity than I can expect from centrists; this has real merit. “We do not believe a commitment to freedom means giving our enemies the freedom to destroy us.”
That last sentence is the clincher for me. I hope it will be for you, too. Lets make this happen!
Thanks and a tip of the hat to Logan’s Warning for alerting me to this opportunity to expose Islam.
CNN published an article by Jocelyne Cesari entitled Islam is a religion, not a terror ideology. The writer asserts, without submitting proof, that Islam is a religion.
Cesari mentions the sensitivity issue in passing, pointing out opposition to Mosque construction projects at generic locations. She generalizes, attributing opposition to: “growing unease toward Islam, fueled by security fears”. Is it possible that there is a growing interest in and knowledge of the doctrines & practices of Islam, fueled by the writings of Bostom, Pipes, Ibrahim, McCarthy, Gabriel & Spencer and other sources of information?
She remarks on the similarity between American and European anti-Islamic movements, identifying one common element: “…they increasingly justify their opposition by arguing that Islam is not a religion.”. Here is her defining example from Europe.
I added emphasis to make one phrase stand out. Cesari appears to be attempting to discredit Wilders by attaching the “right-wing label. But Wilders is not a Nazi, he is a supporter of democracy. For the American side of the equation, she throws a spear at an American politician.
I added emphasis to make one phrase stand out. Cesari appears to be attempting to discredit Ramsey by reference to his loss in the primary election, employing the ad populum fallacy. Despite the grammatical error, Ramsey actually arrived at the truth: Islam is a way of life and a cult. Here there are two common elements: the ad hominum argument and the lack of evidence to disprove the European and American positions. Cesari simply dismisses them without proof.
The sewer sludge flows in the next paragraph.
Note the phrase to which I added emphasis. “justify their intolerance” is used to label us as bigots and our realization that Islam is not a religion is dismissed as misperception. No evidence was supplied to support the dismissal.
Next, Cesari propounds an important question, which should raise a counter-question.
Why was Islam considered a religion? Islam was considered a religion because it was self-identified. In 5:3, Pickthall, Yusuf Ali, Hilali-Khan, Shakir, Sher Ali, Khalifa, Arberry, Palmer, Rodwell and Sale all use “religion” in the declarations of perfection and imposition. But at http://www.openburhan.net/ , in the expanded display, Malik uses deen. At http://www.islam-muslims.org/Quran/2/217/default.htm , Aisha Bewley & Shabbir Ahmed use deen. Free Minds’ literal translation uses system. M. Taqi Usmani spells it din and also uses religion.
In the first two verses it is said that the right and proper way of life intended by God for man is that founded on obedience to Him and conformity to His Laws. Any other way of life, based on someone else’s supposed right to ultimate authority and submission to it, has not the slightest place in Allah’s scheme for man and is hence as wholly unacceptable to Him. And this is but natural. Man is God’s creature and lives in His Domain and God is his Master and Sustainer. How then, can God be expected to consent that man may spend his life in obedience to someone else similarly His creature and dependant, and look to that someone for guidance?
The third verse proclaims that Allah sent His Messenger (may peace be upon him) with the true Deen, the way of life meant by Him for man, which is known as Islam, and it was the primary purpose of the Prophet’s mission that he should make this Deen prevail in their stead and triumph over all other ways of life.
In the fourth, the believers have been ordered to fight all non-believers until mischief-that is, every system of thought, belief, and action which is not based on recognition of Allah as the Supreme Authority, and which therefore will perpetually remain the source of all strife and unrest-has been wiped out, and entire humanity adopts the approved way of life, Allah’s Deen.
The fifth verse was revealed when, after 23 years of prolonged struggle the Islamic Revolution had overcome all resistance in Arabia, when Islam had established itself and been universally accepted as a system of belief, thought, morality, culture, etc., in all its details and in all walks of life, and delegation after delegation from all parts of the country was arriving to pledge allegiance to it, and the Holy Prophet (on whom be peace) was thus witnessing the fulfillment of his mission.”
Islam is not a religion, neither is it an ideology. Islam is a way of life, encompassing all of human activity. Examine the table of contents for Sahih Bukhari, the most authentic of the canonical hadith collections. You will find “religious” matters such as prayer and ritual purity. But you will also find temporal matters such as taxes, loans, mortgages, fighting and military expeditions. Islam encompasses everything from conception to burial.
Islam includes religion, but it is more than religion. It combines religion and government. It wages war. Its war against us began when we threw off England’s tyranny and became independent. The Barbary Pirates sacked our shipping in the name of Allah. When asked by what right they attacked us, they answered by Allah’s law.
What religion levies war on us because we are Christian? That link opens Reliance of the Traveller, the handbook of Shari’ah, to the page containing o9.9. Read it carefully. What does the caliph do? What is the scriptural basis for his action?
How is it possible that an institution which has declared and prosecuted war upon us can be included under the umbrella of protection offered to religions by the First Amendment’s free exercise clause? Attacking disbelievers, aggressive warfare, is a religious obligation, fard al-kifaya which must be carried out in in every year when possible.
How is it possible that we should tolerate the propagation of a belief in a religious obligation to attack and subjugate us, a belief that our blood and property are not sacred to Muslims? How is it possible that we should tolerate the propagation of the idea that we have no rights until we become Muslim?
Bear in mind how deen and religion are interchangeable terms while reading this hadith.
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. [Emphasis added.]
What are the two alternative ways of life named in that hadith? What is their original way of life? What is jihad? What will Allah do to Muslims if they abandon it?
Cesari tries to isolate Islam from one of its intrinsic sacraments: jihad.
Al-Qaeda is an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, which was founded in 1928. Who was doing Jihad before Hassan Al-Banna was born? Who conquered Arabia, North Africa, Turkey, Syria, Southern Europe and half of Asia? Were Muhammad and his four “rightly guided caliphs” extremists separate from the institution he founded?
Cesari asserts that the threat of terrorism is not Islamic.
What was Muhammad driven by when he attacked the Byzantine Empire? What was he driven by when he sent an extortion letter to the emperor of Persia? What is the source of the ideology of terrorism? Who said “I will cast terror“? Who “cast terror“? Who said “I have been made victorious with terror” By what miracle of sophistry do you separate the statements of Allah and his Messenger from Islam?
Cesari deftly weaves a web of code words with which to calumniate us as bigots and racists.
We are brushed off as “already suspicious”, obviously, our suspicions must be unfounded. Where does Islam emanate from? That’s the ticket; must be racism!!!
Next, she segues into the double standard.
Where in the New Testament did Jesus Christ command his disciples to wage war? In what Book, Chapter & Verse did he exemplify terrorism for them to emulate? Compare and contrast what Jesus said with what Allah & Moe said.
Are there any economic factors to explain Moe’s battles? To whom do the spoils belong? What was Moe’s motivation; what did he seek? What did Allah promise him? What did Allah deliver? Why did Moe say “while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.” ? Why did he say “Khosrau will be ruined, and there will be no Khosrau after him, and Caesar will surely be ruined and there will be no Caesar after him, and you will spend their treasures in Allah’s Cause.”
Hector Aleem Update 08/23/’10
The language barrier is obviously at play in this update. If I interpret it correctly, a stay had been issued in conjunction with an appeal to the High Court but the Judge pressed forward regardless.
It becomes clear that there is little or no justice for Christians in Pakistan. The section of Reliance of the Traveller which explains who is qualified to testify in court exposes the horrific truth. Note the words which I emphasized.
(a) is free;
(b) is fully legally responsible (mukallaf, def: c8.1)
(0: as testimony is not accepted from a child or insane
person, even when the child’s testimony regards injuries
among children that occurred at play);
(e) is able to speak;
(d) is mentally awake;
(e) is religious (0: meaning upright (024.4)
(A: and Muslim), for Allah Most High says,
“Let those of rectitude among you testify” (Koran 65:2),
and unbelief is the vilest form of corruption, as goes without saying);
21st August 2010 was the hearing of Hector Aleem, so here is the update about the hearing. First of all our lawyer asked the judge for the stay, because the High Court has given the stay for the quashment of the case and advised the lower court not to proceed until the High Court allows the lower court but as the judge of the lower court is very discriminative, he was not ready to give the stay even after the order of the High Court but after our lawyer gave some legal points and told him to wait until the judgment of the High Court he agreed not to proceed but the Mullahs and the Lawyer of the plaintiff pressurized him to proceed other wise they will protest and will destroy the court, the judge than started the proceeding. All the witnesses were available and our lawyer had to question them but the Investigation officer of Hector’s case was not available, so the judge has ordered the IO (investigation officer) to come on the next hearing. During the argument of both lawyers (our and plaintiff’s) they both argued so harshly and were about to had a physical fight. But the judge ordered both of them to calm down. And gave the next date of hearing. This all situation tells us that our lawyer is quiet brave and is ready to face any situation.

I want you to see a video which discloses some of the suffering of Copts in Egypt. Copts are are indigenous Christians who suffer great injustice under Islamic domination.
The video, which runs 14 minutes and 34 seconds, is in Arabic with English sub titles. It gives us a window into the persecution of Christians conquered by Islam. who are persecuted for attempting to build churches and worship. You will see one story about 32 Christians arrested for meeting in a house to pray.
I can’t find the information required to embed the video, which was posted on Facebook, just click this link to view it. The video advertises the Free Copts web site, where you can find many articles about current events, including the oppression of Egyptian Copts.
To fully comprehend what is happening in Egypt, you need to know that Muslims consider their system and themselves superior to all others. Non-Muslims are to be humiliated and punished for not being Muslim. This sample of Surah Al-Imran will help you to understand. [Emphasis added.]
3:111. They will do you no harm, barring a trifling annoyance; and if they fight against you, they will show you their backs, and they will not be helped.
3:112. Indignity is put over them wherever they may be, except when under a covenant (of protection) from Allâh, and from men; they have drawn on themselves the Wrath of Allâh, and destruction is put over them. This is because they disbelieved in the Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allâh and killed the Prophets without right. This is because they disobeyed (Allâh) and used to transgress beyond bounds (in Allâh’s disobedience, crimes and sins).
3:110 identifies the subject, 3:111 assures Muslims of an easy victory; 3:112 tells us that people of the scriptures are covered with indignity and destruction. One hadith clarifies this matter better than any other.
Moe’s arrogance comes through loud and clear; Muslims share that arrogance as part of emulating their Profit. Islamic law sets the seal on the issue. The following quotes are from Reliance of the Traveller, Book O, Chapter 9. Turn to page 507 of the pdf file to verify these quotes. I post this because I want you to see just how tolerant Islam is; there is a need to know. If you don’t know about this, you can not detect the lies spewed by Muslims and our elected traitors.
ISLAMIC STATE (AHL AL-DHIMMA)
o11.1 A formal agreement of protection is made
with citizens who are:
(4) Samaritans and Sabians, if their religions do not
respectively contradict the fundamental bases of Judaism and Christianity;
(5) and those who adhere to the religion of Abraham
or one of the other prophets (upon whom be blessings and peace).
011.2 Such an agreement may not be effected
with those who are idol worshippers (dis: o9.9(n:»,
or those who do not have a Sacred Book
or something that could have been a Book.
(A: Something that could have been a Book
refers to those like the Zoroastrians, who have
remnants resembling an ancient Book. As for the
psuedoscriptures of cults that have appeared since
Islam (n: such as the Sikhs, Baha’is, Mormons,
Qadianis, etc.), they neither are nor could be a
Book, since the Koran is the final revelation (dis: w4).)
011.3 Such an agreement is only valid when the
(a) follow the rules of Islam (A: those mentioned
below (011.5) and those involving public behavior and dress,
though in acts of worship and their private lives, the subject
communities have their own laws, judges, and courts,
enforcing the rules of their own religion among themselves);
(b) and pay the non-Muslim poll tax Jizya).
Notice that there is a “treaty of protection”, for which refer back to 3:112, quoted above. This treaty is only imposed upon people who have been conquered or intimidated so that they surrender to Muslims who attacked them. [9:29]
Notice that idol worshipers, Sikhs, Baha’is & Mormons who are specifically excluded, must be fought until they are dead or Muslim [o9.9].
011.4 The minimum non-Muslim poll tax is one
dinar (n: 4.235 grams of gold) per person (A: per
year). The maximum is whatever both sides agree
upon. It is collected with leniency and politeness, as
are all debts, and is not levied on women, children.
or the insane.
The current price of gold is $39.53.(08/23/’10) at that rate, the minimum jizya is $170.97. It appears that the maximum may have been one half of the annual production extracted from the Jews of Khaibar.
that pertain to the safety and indemnity of life, reputation, and property.
In addition, they:
(1) are penalized for committing adultery or theft, though not for drunkenness;
(2) are distinguished from Muslims in dress, wearing a wide cloth belt (zunnar);
(3) are not greeted with “as-Salamu ‘alaykum” ;
(4) must keep to the side of the street;
(5) may not build higher than or as high as the Muslims’ buildings, though if they
acquire a tall house, it is not razed;
(6) are forbidden to openly display wine or pork, (A: to ring church bells or
display crosses,) recite the Torah or Evangel aloud, or make public display
of their funerals and feast days;
(7) and are forbidden to build new churches.
o11.6 They are forbidden to reside in the Hijaz, meaning the area and
towns around Mecca, Medina, and Yamama, for more than three days
(when the caliph allows them to enter there for something they need).
`I added emphasis to a few important items in that list to make them stand out. Reexamine #4 in the light of this quote: “when you meet any one of them on the roads force him to go to the narrowest part of it.” from Sahih Muslim 26.5389.
The sixth item in that list prohibits ringing church bells, displaying crosses, reading the scripture aloud and public funeral processions. The seventh item proscribes church construction. Did someone mention freedom of religion? Why can’t Copts build churches?
O11.10 lists acts which violate the treaty of protection. Pay close attention to these.
respect to the offender alone) if the state has stipu-
lated that any of the following things break it, and
one of the suhjects does so anyway. though if the
state has not stipulated that these break the agree-
ment, then they do not; namely, if one of the subject
(1) commits adultery with a Muslim woman or marries her:
(2) conceals spies of hostile forces;
(3) leads a Muslim away from Islam;
(4) kills a Muslim;
(5) or mentions something impermissible about Allah, the Prophet
(Allah bless him and give him peace), or Islam.
011.11 When a subject’s agreement with the state
has been violated, the caliph chooses between the
four alternatives mentioned above in connection
with prisoners of war (09.14).
If you, as a dhimmi, make the mistake of marrying a Muslim woman or criticizing Islam, what happens to you under Shari’ah?
caliph (def: 025) considers the interests (0: of
Islam and the Muslims) and decides between
the prisoner’s death, slavery, release without
paying anything, or ransoming himself in
exchange for money or for a Muslim captive
held by the enemy.
If the prisoner becomes a Muslim (0: before
the caliph chooses any of the four alternatives)
then he may not be killed, and one of the other
three alternatives is chosen.
As a violator of the treaty of protection, you can be killed or enslaved. Why the reference to disposition of prisoners of war? You become a dhimmi as a result of conquest or intimidation. You are a prisoner of war. Why the provision for adult males; what happens to women and children?
they become slaves by the fact of capture, and the
woman’s previous marriage is immediately annulled.
Got a clue yet? Are you ready for building “bridges of understanding?” Do you want America to be “Shari’ah compliant”? How are you going to understand Islam without exploring its canon of scripture, tradition, exegesis & jurisprudence? Can you trust what any Muslim tells you? Can you trust what any politician tells you? Can you trust what the talking heads tell you?
Islamic law covers every facet of human life, from conception to burial. Much of it, such as the rituals and requirements of wudu & salat are arcane & esoteric, downright silly if not obscene. The parts I showed you, about religious liberty and war, are more directly related to our lives. There are others, such as marriage, divorce and genital mutilation. But I wish to leave you with something more important; more directly linked to the privileges & immunities of American citizens. As a Christian, you can not testify in court; as a female, your testimony has half the weight of a male’s.
(a) is free;
(b) is fully legally responsible (mukallaf, def: c8.1) (0: as

(A: and Muslim), for Allah Most High says,
“Let those of rectitude among you testify” (Koran 65:2),
and unbelief is the vilest form of corruption, as goes without saying);
o24.7 The testimony of the following is legally acceptable
when it concerns cases involving property,
or transactions dealing with property, such as sales:
(1) two men;
(2) two women and a man;
(3) or a male witness together with the oath of the plaintiff.
024.8 If testimony does not concern property, such as a
marriage or prescribed legal penalties,
then only two male witnesses may testify (A: though the
Hanafi school holds that two women and a man may testify for marriage). [Emphasis added.]
In this post I have linked to an authentic but incomplete scan of Reliance of the Traveller which begins with book f. If you need to see books a-e or the certificates of authenticity, you can go to Amazon and buy a copy, or you can view this low resolution scan.
The Examiner published an article by Armir Taraj entitled: Park51 Opponents Linked to Admirer of Terror Group Founder. The article presented ad hominem arguments against Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer and appealed to biased authority figures without presenting relevant, verifiable facts to refute the arguments presented by Geller and Spencer.
Presuming that their comment system would not allow links, I responded with references to Islam’s canon.
The fact is that Islam is intrinsically evil, by design . Its mission is mercenary. Anyone can confirm that fact by reading the Qur’an & hadith: 8:1, 41, & 67; 33:26,27; 48:20, Sahih Muslim 19.4327, Sahih Bukhari 1.7.331, 4.52.220, 3.37.495 & 4.52.267 You can look up those references or you can search for and read “Islam’s Mercenary Mission”.
The fact is that Islam is martial, it ordains warfare for Muslims, the relationship between Allah and Muslims is master:slave; purchased to fight in his cause, kill and be killed. Allah commanded Muslims to wage war against pagans until only Allah is worshiped and to wage war against Jews & Christians until they are subjugated & make annual extortion payments. Moe confirmed those imperatives, declaring that he was “ordered to fight”.
You can confirm those facts by reading the Qur’an & hadith: 8:69, 9:29, 9:123 & Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387.
Moe sent out extortion letters and followed up with his army. You can search for Muhammad’s letters and treaties and you can read Sahih Bukhari’s books of Jihad, Khumus & Expedition. Or you can search for, download and read Jihad.chm.
Moe was a terrorist and bragged about it. You can verify this fact by reading Sahih Bukhari 4.52.220 & 1.7.331 or you can search for, download and read Islamic Terror.chm.
You can find a substantial subset of the relevant quotes, linked to source, in my blog post: “What’s Wrong With Islam/Muslims?” You could look up the writings of Ibn Khaldun, Ibn Taymiyya, Qutb & Maududi. You could look up Reliance of the Traveller, Book O, Chapter 9 to verify the fact that the jihad imperatives are codified in Shari’ah. You could look up the “science of Naskh” to discover that the relatively tolerant and peaceful early Meccan verses have been abrogated by Surah al-Anfal & at-Taubah.
You could do the research, but you won’t, because you are a Liberal, and liberals know that they are superior, intellectually and morally. Liberals know that their instincts are obviously correct, they do not require relevant, verifiable factual evidence.
My comment did not contain any profanity, so I decided to go all the way with another attempt at commenting.
I will attempt to post links to my blog posts and compilations of posts which contain the relevant facts with links which will allow you to verify them and explore the context.
Islamic Terror.chm: http://www.box.net/shared/l9kl2j3xju
The second attempt produced exactly the same result. When I attempted to post a message announcing my intent to create this post, I got a message saying that I had failed to enter the correct characters, but no capcha form was visible. A latter attempt was successful, but there was no capcha.
It is evident that LibTards are repelled by relevant, verifiable facts. They do not want their emotion driven assumptions to be refuted with truth.
Here is the money quote (from FAIR):
Lets get specific, which the LibTards won’t do. Here is a sample of the “peaceful, tolerant ayat” which supposedly contradict Spencer’s evidence.
- 2:256. There is no compulsion in religion. Verily, the Right Path has become distinct from the wrong path. Whoever disbelieves in Tâghût and believes in Allâh, then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break. And Allâh is All-Hearer, All-Knower.
- 5:32. Because of that We ordained for the Children of Israel that if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land – it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind. And indeed, there came to them Our Messengers with clear proofs, evidences, and signs, even then after that many of them continued to exceed the limits (e.g. by doing oppression unjustly and exceeding beyond the limits set by Allâh by committing the major sins) in the land!.
- 10:99. And had your Lord willed, those on earth would have believed, all of them together. So, will you (O Muhammad ) then compel mankind, until they become believers.
10:100. It is not for any person to believe, except by the Leave of Allâh, and He will put the wrath on those who are heedless.
- 109:6. “To you be your religion, and to me my religion (Islâmic Monotheism).”
- 16:125. Invite (mankind, O Muhammad ) to the Way of your Lord (i.e. Islâm) with wisdom (i.e. with the Divine Inspiration and the Qur’ân) and fair preaching, and argue with them in a way that is better. Truly, your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His Path, and He is the Best Aware of those who are guided.
The self-anointed experts who would so blithely dismiss Spencer’s arguments overlook the science of Naskh. When two ayat conflict, the ayeh revealed later abrogates the older ayeh. [2:106, 16:101] Examine the sequence of revelation.
- 5:33. The recompense of those who wage war against Allâh and His Messenger and do mischief in the land is only that they shall be killed or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off on the opposite sides, or be exiled from the land. That is their disgrace in this world, and a great torment is theirs in the Hereafter.
If you “wage war against Allah”, you “shall be”: killed, crucified, have hand & foot cut off or exiled. Why do Muslims practice kitman by concealing this verse? Because of the definition of “wage war against Allah”. Ibn Kathir provides that definition in his tafsir. [Emphasis added.]
- `Wage war’ mentioned here means, oppose and contradict, and it includes disbelief, blocking roads and spreading fear in the fairways. [The Punishment of those Who Cause Mischief in the Land]
Disbelief in Allah constitutes waging war against him, subjecting one to the hudud listed in 5:33. And they accuse us of cherry picking!
Examine Surah at-Taubah 29 carefully, what does it command Muslims to 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.
What does Islamic law say about that? Lets consult Umdat al-Salik.
- THE OBJECTIVES OF JIHAD
o9.R Thc caliph (025) 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 nonMuslim
poll tax (jizya, def: 01 L4)-which is the
significance of their paying it, not the money
itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions)
(0: and the war continues) until they
become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll
tax (0: in accordance with the word of Allah Most
“Fight those who do not believe in Allah and
the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and
His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice
the religion of truth, being of those who have
been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax
out of hand and are humbled” (Koran 9:29),
the time and place for which is before the final descent
of Jesus (upon whom be peace). After his
final coming, nothing but Islam will be accepted
from them. for taking the poll tax is only effective
until Jesus’ descent (upon him and our Prophet be
peace), which is the divinely revealed law of
Muhammad, The coming of Jesus does not entail
a separate divinely revealed law, for he will rule
by the law of Muhammad, As for the Prophet’s
saying (Allah bless him and give him peace),
“I am the last, there will be no prophet
this does not contradict the final coming of Jesus
(upon whom be peace), since he will not rule
according to the Evangel, but as a follower of our
Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace)).
And the Jurists? What did Al-Shafi’i say?
What did Al-Ghazali say?
There is more Fiqh!
|Fight in the name of God and in the ”path of God” [i.e. truth]. Combat [only] those who disbelieve in God. Whenever you meet your polytheistic enemies, invite them [first] to adopt Islam. If they do so, accept it, and let them alone. […] If they refuse [to accept Islam], then call upon them to pay the jizya; if they do, accept it and leave them alone. If you besiege the inhabitants of a fortress or a town and they try to get you to let them surrender on the basis of God’s judgment, do not do so, since you do not know what God’s judgment is, but make them surrender to your judgment and then decide their case according to your own views.|
|Jihad is a precept of Divine institution. We Malikis maintain that it is preferable not to begin hostilities with the enemy before having invited the latter to embrace the religion of Allah except where the enemy attacks first. They have the alternative of either converting to Islam or paying the poll tax, short of which war will be declared against them.|
|The destruction of the sword is incurred by infidels, although they be not the first aggressors, as appears from various passages in the traditions which are generally received to this effect. […] When the Muslims enter the enemy’s country and besiege the cities or strongholds of the infidels, it is necessary to invite them to embrace the faith, because Ibn Abbas relates of the Prophet that he never destroyed any without previously inviting them to embrace the faith. If, therefore, they embrace the faith, it is unnecessary to war with them, because that which was the design of the war is then obtained without war. […] If the infidels, upon receiving the call, neither consent to it nor agree to pay capitation tax, it is then incumbent on the Muslims to call upon God for assistance, and to make war upon them […]|
|[…] jihad is a fard al-kifaya, that is, that one must begin the fight against the enemy, even when he [the enemy] may not have taken the initiative to fight, because the Prophet […] early on […] allowed believers to defend themselves, later, however, he ordered them to take the initiative at certain times of the year, that is, at the end of the haram months, saying, ”Kill the idolaters wherever you find them” (Q9:5). He finally ordered fighting without limitations, at all times and in all places, saying, ”Fight those who do not believe in God, and in the Last Day” (Q9:29); there are also other [similar] verses on the subject. This shows that it is a fard al-kifaya.|
“Islam is a great religion of peace”, yeah, right. LibTards will never accept the evidence, no matter how much we present. Evidence does not count, only emotion based assumptions count to LibTards.
