Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

International Judge the Koran Day


Today’s email brought a press release from Stand Up America, announcing an upcoming event: International Judge the Koran Day.  The new Facebook group has grown from 60 to 72 supporters in the last few hours.

It appears that the planned event is inchohate at present. Rev. Terry Jones posted this video in which he asks for our advice about what to do with the Koran.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQ81p1i5eiQ

Exactly what he will do March 20, 2011 from 6 to 8 pm is unknown, but I am sure that, whatever it is, it will arouse the ire of Muslims and draw protest from politicians and pundits.

I suggest that Rev. Jones open the Koran and read the parts which curse and declare war against Jews & Christians. The parts that mandate genocide should be read along with them.

Furthermore, those Korans collected for the  canceled bonfire  should be distributed to churches, read from the pulpet and preserved in the church’s library so that the congregation can read it.

A moot trial of Moe could well be scheduled for his birthday which falls about February 4, 2012.  That  timing would allow plenty of time for planning and preparation.

Islam considers the Arabic Koran to be authentic, translations are deprecated. Translations lack the Arabic poetry; the magic is in the sound, which is why Muslim students learn it in Arabic even if they do not understand that language.

Muslims will contend that translations do not accurately convey the meaning of the Koran. That claim fades when applied to tafsir & hadith. The hadith tell us what Moe did, which is the best possible indication of what the Koran meant to him. Informed readers can visit the Quranic Arabic Corpus to see what the Arabic words mean.  We can also visit sites such as Islam Awakened to read and compare multiple parallel translations.

Islamic law is based primarily on the Koran & hadith. It shows us what the jihad verses mean with great clarity.
.
When Caliph Umar conquered the Levant, he made the indigenous people sign a treaty of protection, now known as the Pact of Umar. One of its provisions was “We shall not teach the Qur’an to our children.”.   This little gem comes from an early attempt to codify Islamic law.

Malik’s Muwatta Book 21, Number 21.2.7:

Yahya related to me from Malik from Nafi that Abdullah ibn Umar said that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, forbade travelling with a Qur’an in the land of the enemy. Malik commented, “That is out of fear that the enemy will get hold of it.”

Why would Moe fear the enemy gaining possession of  Allah’s book?  Why would Umar forbid teaching it to dhimmi’s children?  Could it be that it contains incriminating evidence?

Zakir Naik: Fork Tongued Snake


Mohamed Karim Mostafa sent me a list of six YouTube videos which he said would correct my misconceptions about Islam.  Unfortunately, I do not have any misconceptions about Islam.

The videos are not worth embedding or watching I will share the links here in case you want to see and hear them for yourself.    In some venues the links will embed the videos.

Is Terrorism A Muslim Monopoly? – by Dr. Zakir Naik (1/17)

The video begins with  promotional propaganda for his organization, then  quotes 5:32, followed by a jurist who takes a pragmatic view, asserting that terrorism results in harsh counter attacks.

Dr. Zakir Naik – Terrorism in the Name of Islam 7/13

  • 3:110
  • honor linked with responsibility
  • try to stop evil
  • dawa is best jihad
  • 9:5 quoted out of context
  • rules & regulations for war
  • 5:32 quoted
3:110. You [true believers in Islâmic Monotheism, and real followers of Prophet Muhammad  and his Sunnah (legal ways, etc.)] are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-Ma’rûf (i.e. Islâmic Monotheism and all that Islâm has ordained) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and all that Islâm has forbidden), and you believe in Allâh. And had the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) believed, it would have been better for them; among them are some who have faith, but most of them are Al-Fâsiqûn (disobedient to Allâh – and rebellious against Allâh’s Command).

Sahih Bukhari Volume 6, Book 60, Number 80:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Verse:–“You (true Muslims) are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind.” means, the best of peoples for the people, as you bring them with chains on their necks till they embrace Islam.

How honorable is that?  Enslaving us is so honorable!

Dr.Zakir Naik Reply Florida Church Burn Quran Day on 9/11 part 2

  • How to prove 9:11 was an inside job?
  • 75 professors & scientists believe it
  • more speculative bs

I remember hearing an interesting phrase on the CVR of Flight 63, do you?  I remember seeing a video tape of U.B.L. gloating over what he had commanded. I remember seeing a signed statement by K.S.M. and four colleagues in which they confessed to and took pride in the accursed abomination.

Christian accepts Islam after challenging Zakir Naik – MUST SEE !!!

  • Why is Jesus Christ not the son of God?
  • We love and respect Jesus more than most of the Christians.
  • claims that the Gospel fortells Muhammad.

They love Jesus because they believe that he will return to conquer and rule the world by the Qur’an. Their version of Jesus is a genocidal warlord.

Sunun Abu Dawud Book 37, Number 4310:

Narrated AbuHurayrah:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: There is no prophet between me and him, that is, Jesus (peace_be_upon_him). He will descent (to the earth). When you see him, recognise him: a man of medium height, reddish fair, wearing two light yellow garments, looking as if drops were falling down from his head though it will not be wet. He will fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam. He will destroy the Antichrist and will live on the earth for forty years and then he will die. The Muslims will pray over him.

 

[…]In the future, the Jews will support the Dajjal (False Messiah); and the Muslims, along with `Isa, son of Mary, will kill the Jews. This will occur just before the end of this world.[…]   Eternal Humiliation placed on the Jews

Comparative religion:: methodology of salvation:

  • Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 2:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
  • Acts 16:29 Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, 16:30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
    • 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!

      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.

      61:13. And also (He will give you) another (blessing) which you love, help from Allâh (against your enemies) and a near victory. And give glad tidings (O Muhammad ) to the believers.

A Christian Challenging Zakir Naik

  • inaudiable dispute over gospel quote.
  • issues challenge to show Jesus claiming to be God

Zakir Naik, like other apologists for Islam, engages in al-taqiyya & kitman.

Killing innocents

Islam must be peaceful & anodyne because it condemns killing innocent people, declaring the murder of a single person to be the moral equivalent of killing the whole human race.

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!.

The verse contains two exceptions, murder, and to spread mischief in the land.  I added the emphasis to make that second exception stand out because they accuse us of quoting the Qur’an out of context but they never quote.the next verse. I will.

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.

A new capital offense is listed in addition to mischief:  wage war against Allâh and His Messenger.  What is the meaning of that phrase? Does it refer to military aggression?  The context does not define it for us, we must turn to Tafsir Ibn Kathir for our answer.

[…]`Wage war’ mentioned here means, oppose and contradict, and it includes disbelief, blocking roads and spreading fear in the fairways. Mischief in the land refers to various types of evil.[…]    The Punishment of those Who Cause Mischief in the Land

Disbelief is waging war against Allah and his Messenger!  If you do not believe in Allah; if you are not a Muslim, then you are guilty, not innocent and Muslims can kill you with impunity unless you are under a covenant of protection.   Islam forbids killing innocent people: Muslims, it does not forbid killing you.

You have no human dignity or rights, your life & property are fair prey for Muslims until you become a Muslim.  Moe made a clear statement of this fatal fact which Muslims conceal from you.

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.”

 

Terrorism

Allah said that he would cast terror [3:151, 8:12]. He commanded the Muslims to treat their victims harshly to terrify prospective victims [8:57]. He commanded the Muslims to maximize their military strength to strike terror into their victims [8:60].  He said that he cast terror, resulting in the killing, enslavement and dispossession of a Jewish settlement [33:26].

Moe said that he was aided by and made victorious by terror.  Which will you believe: al-taqeyya & kitman from the mouth of a Muslim or the evidence from Islam’s cannon of scripture & tradition?

Search Pains


Bloggers enjoy seeing search engine referrals, but yesterday, I found a disturbing one. What You Need To Know About Islam received three page views from two search engine results.  The first search, repeated once, is not a problem; it indicates timely curiosity.

  • any one want know about islam
  • i am new to islam what all i should know

The second query gives me a pain. It indicates that someone sold his or her soul to Satan without first reading the sales contract with its codicils.  My guess is that the seeker did not find what he or she was looking for in that post.  It contains information that should stop any moral person from making the sale.

The recent ‘revert’ to Islam will probably want to know the basics of the salat schedules, postures, gestures & compulsory prayers, zakat, fitra & other arcana that require significant research to uncover. The Resources post would be more useful to that reader because it presents links to several large Islamic libraries where that sort of practical information can be found.

In this case, cliches such as “look before you leap” and “investigate before you invest”  come to mind.  Anyone who is toying with the idea of ‘reverting’ to Islam should read its canonical texts before reciting Shahada.  The Qur’an and Sahih Bukhari should be required reading for anyone who might be tempted by the “simplicity”, “certainty” & ‘beauty” of Islam.

Islam is a one way street, you can get in but you can’t get out. Apostates are executed where Allah’s writ runs.  Satan’s recruiters are unlikely to tell prospects about that,  the requirement of circumcision and the fard al-kifaya of jihad.
Women and girls who are exposed to Muslims in the work place or college should read  Islamic Misogyny now, while it can do them some good.  An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Defamation of Religions 2010


The General Assembly vote on the Defamation of Religions resolution [Word Document] was not unexpected, nor was the slight decline in support for the resolution.

The resolution has no enforcement mechanism, it is an exhortation, not law.  Unfortunately, it affords undeserved legitimacy to national blasphemy laws which are used to persecute minorities in Islamic dictatorships.

To make matters worse, there is a parallel process whose outcome will be a binding protocol to ICERD which will be legally enforcible. The information I have gathered is reported in these blog posts:

Human rights belong to humans, not to institutions.  There is no human right to be shielded from criticism of evil actions or intentions which are propagated in the name of religion.

Shari’ah, particularly Reliance of the Traveller, Book O, Chapter 8, which lists 20 ‘acts’ which ‘entail apostasy’. In short, any negative statement about Islam, Moe, Allah or the Qur’an is punishable by execution [o8.1-8.2]. For the law’s applicability to non-Muslims, see o11.10 & o9.14.

While I vociferously object to the entire resolution & its antecedents included by reference, there is one provision which stands alone as a perfect reason to reject the entire concept of “defamation of Islam”.

7. Expresses deep concern, in this respect, that Islam is frequently and

wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism;

wrongly associated with terrorism

I have frequently quoted the relevant ayat & ahadith in numerous posts. I will link them here, and let those who are unfamiliar with them follow the links while the rest of us advance to the Sira.

Allah said that he would “cast terror” but “Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism;” Allah said that he cast terror, resulting in death, captivity, dispossession & destruction, but “Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism;”.

Moe said that he was made “victorious with terror” but “Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism;” For those who don’t have a clue yet, I provide quotes from the oldest extant biography of Islam’s Profit: Guillaume’s translation of Ibn Ishaq’s Sirat Rasul Allah.

These quotes come from devoted followers, not from enemies.

Ishaq:322 “Allah said concerning the pebbles thrown by the Apostle, ‘I threw them not you. Your
tossing them would have had no effect without My help. But working together, We
terrorized the enemy and put them to flight.”
  • “Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism”
  • “We terrorized the enemy and put them to flight”

Which one do you believe?

Ishaq:395 “Muslims, if you listen to the unbelievers you will retreat from the enemy and become losers. Ask Allah
for victory and do not retreat, withdrawing from His religion. ‘We will terrorize those who disbelieve. In
that way I will help you against them.'”
  • “Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism”
  • “We will terrorize those who disbelieve.”

Which one do you believe?

Ishaq:368
“We carried Ka’b’s head and brought it to Muhammad during the night. We
saluted him as he stood praying and told him that we had slain Allah’s enemy.
When he came out to us we cast Ashraf’s head before his feet. The Prophet
praised Allah that the poet had been assassinated and complimented us on the
good work we had done in Allah’s Cause. Our attack upon Allah’s enemy cast
terror among the Jews, and there was no Jew in Medina who did not fear for
his life.'”
  • “Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism”
  • “Our attack upon Allah’s enemy cast terror among the Jews, and there was no Jew in Medina who did not fear for his life.'”

Which one do you believe?

Ishaq:437 “So Allah cast terror into the hearts of the Jews. Then the Prophet said, ‘The
Jews have declared war.'”
  • “Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism”
  • “So Allah cast terror into the hearts of the Jews”

Which one do you believe?

Ishaq:468 “Allah brought down the People of the Scripture Book. I forced the Qurayza
from their homes and cast terror into their hearts. Some you slew, and some
you took captive. You killed their men and enslaved their women and
children. And I caused you to inherit their land, their dwellings, and their
property. Allah can do all things.'”
  • “Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism”
  • “cast terror into their hearts”

Which one do you believe?

Ishaq:326 “If you come upon them, deal so forcibly as to terrify those who would follow, that they may be warned.
Make a severe example of them by terrorizing Allah’s enemies.”
  • “Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism”
  • ” Make a severe example of them by terrorizing Allah’s enemies”

Which one do you believe?

Ishaq:326 “Allah said, ‘No Prophet before Muhammad took booty from his enemy nor prisoners for ransom.’
Muhammad said, ‘I was made victorious with terror. The earth was made a place for me to clean. I was
given the most powerful words. Booty was made lawful for me. I was given the power to intercede. These
five privileges were awarded to no prophet before me.'”
  • “Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism”
  • ” I was made victorious with terror”

Which one do you believe?

Take a closer look at that quote from page 326. Moe was given five privileges by Allah, privileges not given to any Prophet. These are privileges given by Allah to his final messenger, the founder of Islam:

  • taking booty
    • ransoming prisoners
  • victory with terror
  • entire earth is his prayer ground
  • most powerful words
  • booty made lawful
  • power to intercede

Winning with terror is a special privilege from Allah. Got a clue yet?  If this blasphemy does not cause you to curse, go out and hang yourself, you are a waste of life.

Ishaq 523 When the apostle had finished with Khaybar, God struck terror to the
hearts of the men of Fadak when they heard what the apostle had done to
the men of Khaybar.
  • “Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism”
  • ” God struck terror to the hearts of the men of Fadak…”

Which one do you believe?

Ishaq 461
According to what al-Zuhri told me, at the time of the noon prayers 

Gabriel came to the apostle wearing an embroidered turban and riding on a mule with a saddle covered with a piece of brocade. He asked the apostle if he had abandoned fighting, and when he said that he had he said that the angels had not yet laid aside their arms and that he had just come from pursuing the enemy. ‘God commands you, Muhammad, to go to B.   Qurayza. I am about to go to them to shake their stronghold.’…

The apostle passed by a number of his companions in al-Saurayn before he got to B. Qurayza and asked if anyone had passed them. They replied that Dihya b. Khalifa al-Kalbi had passed upon a white mule with a saddle covered with a piece of brocade. He said, That was Gabriel who has been sent to B. Qurayza to shake their castles and strike terror to their hearts.’

  • “Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism”
  • ” …to shake their castles and strike terror to their hearts.'”

Which one do you believe?

How is Islam associated with terrorism?  Who made that association??  What is wrong with it???  Do people have a right to live unmolested, without invasion, conquest & enslavement or not?  Does Islam violate that right?

The entire premise of the resolution combating defamation of religions is a lie.  Human Rights First reveals the vote: 79,67,40.  How in Hell could 79 nations vote in favor of that travesty of justice and 40 abstain from voting against it?  There are 57 Islamic nations, 62 are either deceived, intimidated or sucking Islam’s oil & money teats.

Lovers of life, liberty & justice are in the minority. The aggressors and their allies rule the UN. We are out voted. These annual resolutions will continue to pass in the HRC & GA every year, and the protocol to ICERD will eventually be written, voted on and ratified unless we rise up and raise Hell.

We have only one recourse: to counter attack by exposing Islamic doctrines & practices to the eyes of the world.  We must make the campaign to impose Shari’ah too painful to pursue.

Three international human rights covenants contain provisions which require that Islam be proscribed by law. Nobody will enforce them.  Our task is to disrespectfully demand enforcement of those provisions.  The evidence is outlined in the International Qur’an Petition.  What other defense do we have? Please read, sign, share and promote the petition. Make it go viral! The link is to a blog post which contains links to covenants and the evidence of Islam’s violations.  You can copy it, send it by email and cross post it.   If not us, who?  If not now, when?  If you want your grandchildren to live securely in freedom and prosperity, you must take action now.

Its Islam, Stupid.


In a Washington Post article about Islamic criticism of anti-terrorism training, Jeff Stein quotes Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser.  These quotes have been culled out of context.

But “to indict a whole system for using some people who hate or fear Islam,” he said, was “wrong.”

“It’s not a systematic problem,”

“equate political Islam and sharia with Islam itself.”“If they see Islam itself as the problem, then the [training] strategy is dead in the water….It doesn’t present any type of solution.”.

Indicting Islam as a system

To Dr. Jasser, Islam is a personal belief system; a non political religion. To Islam’s founder, it was a way of life, encompassing the entire range of human events. Moe dictated and exemplified everything for his followers, right down to how to urinate & defecate. Moe’s decision is law, in the context of this ayeh, it is matters of matrimony, but the rule extends to all issues he might decide. [Emphasis added.]

  • 33:36. It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allâh and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allâh and His Messenger, he has indeed strayed in a plain error.

 

disobeys Allâh and His Messenger

Moe said something very instructive about this.

What command did disbelievers disobey?  The command to submit to Islam! One of Moe’s many extortion letters has a clue for you.

  • […]It is better for you, either to accept Islam or agree to pay Jiziya and consent to remain obedient to Allah, His prophet and his messengers. […] If you do not accept these terms and set them aside, I do not need your presents and gifts. In that case, I shall have to wage war (to establish peace and security). Its result would be that the big ones shall be killed in war and the commoners shall be taken prisoners. […] [LETTER TO THE CHIEFS OF AQABA]

 

terrorism: systematic problem

How can anyone deny that Allah’s revelations and Moe’s sunnah are  part of Islam?

  • 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).
  • 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.”
  • 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.
  • 8:60. And make ready against them all you can of power, including steeds of war (tanks, planes, missiles, artillery, etc.) to threaten the enemy of Allâh and your enemy, and others besides whom, you may not know but whom Allâh does know. And whatever you shall spend in the Cause of Allâh shall be repaid unto you, and you shall not be treated unjustly.
    • Alternative expressions from other translators:
      • that thereby ye may dismay the enemy
      • to strike terror
      • to frighten thereby the enemy
      • to terrify thereby the enemy
      • to make the enemies of God… in dread thereof
      • whereby ye may strike terror into the enemy
      • whereby ye may strike a terror into the enemy.
  • 33:26. And those of the people of the Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers) Allâh brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives.

    33:27. And He caused you to inherit their lands, and their houses, and their riches, and a land which you had not trodden (before). And Allâh is Able to do all things.

  • 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).
  • 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).
    • Alternative expressions from other translators:
      • because of the terror in their hearts
      • greater in being feared in their hearts
      • greater fear of you in their hearts
      • you strike more terror in their hearts
      • arouse greater fear in their hearts
      • a keener source of fear in their hearts
      • the fear of you is more intense in their hearts
      • by reason of the terror [cast] into their breasts from God

Allah said that he would cast terror and that he did cast terror so that two Jewish settlements were destroyed and the inhabitants enslaved and dispossessed. How can anyone deny the obvious fact that terrorism is sanctified by the Qur’an?  Examine what Moe said about it.

  • Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 7, Number 331:
    Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah:
    The Prophet said, “I have been given five things which were not given to any one else before me.
    1. Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month’s journey. […]
  • Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:
    Narrated Abu Huraira:

    Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy),[…]

How did Allah make Moe victorious?  What does that make Moe?  What does that make Muslims?

  • 33:21. Indeed in the Messenger of Allâh (Muhammad ) you have a good example to follow for him who hopes in (the Meeting with) Allâh and the Last Day and remembers Allâh much.

How do you emulate a terrorist without becoming a terrorist?  What sort of person has a terrorist as his role model?  And how did Allah cast terror?  This quote comes from page 28 of Volume 8 of Tabari’s history: The Victory of Islam. 1

Before reaching the Banu Qurayzah, the Messenger of God
passed his companions at al-$awran. “Has anyone passed you? ”
he asked. ”Yes, . Messenger of God,” they replied. “Dihyah b.
Khalifah al-Kalbilgi passed us on a white mule with a brocade-
covered saddle.” The Messenger of God said, ”That was Gabriel,
sent to the Banu Qurayzah to shake their fortresses and cast terror
into their hearts.”

This quote comes from page 368 of Ishaq’s Sira. 2

Our attack upon God’s enemy cast terror among the Jews, and there was no Jew in Medina
who did not fear for his life.

This quote comes from page 461 of the Sira.

The apostle besieged them for twenty-five nights until they were sore pressed and God cast terror into their hearts.

Allah’s word is law to be obeyed.  Moe’s sunnah is an example to be emulated.  It is obvious that terrorism is a foundational part of Islam.  Muslims terrorized people by invading, killing, plundering and enslaving with great brutality.

equate political Islam and

sharia with Islam itself

How can anyone claim that Islam is apolitical?  Moe established himself as a warlord in Medina. He consolidated ‘spiritual’ & temporal power in his own hands. Islam demands the imposition of sharia, which is based on the Qur’an & sunnah.   Dr. Jasser wants to do something which is implicitly  condemned: to cherry pick Islam.

  • 13:36. Those to whom We have given the Book (such as ‘Abdullâh bin Salâm and other Jews who embraced Islâm), rejoice at what has been revealed unto you (i.e. the Qur’ân) , but there are among the Confederates (from the Jews and pagans) those who reject a part thereof. Say (O Muhammad ): “I am commanded only to worship Allâh (Alone) and not to join partners with Him. To Him (Alone) I call and to Him is my return.”
  • 13:37. And thus have We sent it (the Qur’ân) down to be a judgement of authority in Arabic. Were you (O Muhammad ) to follow their (vain) desires after the knowledge which has come to you, then you will not have any Walî (protector) or defender against Allâh.
  • 2:85. After this, it is you who kill one another and drive out a party of you from their homes, assist (their enemies) against them, in sin and transgression. And if they come to you as captives, you ransom them, although their expulsion was forbidden to you. Then do you believe in a part of the Scripture and reject the rest? Then what is the recompense of those who do so among you, except disgrace in the life of this world, and on the Day of Resurrection they shall be consigned to the most grievous torment. And Allâh is not unaware of what you do.

Islam itself as the problem

What did the terrorists say when they slit the throats of the flight crews?  What do Muslims say when they slit a goat’s throat for eid?  What motivates terrorists?

A search of the Noble Quran translated by Hilali & khan returns:

  • reward: 63
  • gardens 53
  • success: 37

Here is one example for your enlightenment.

  • 3:195. So their Lord accepted of them (their supplication and answered them), “Never will I allow to be lost the work of any of you, be he male or female. You are (members) one of another, so those who emigrated and were driven out from their homes, and suffered harm in My Cause, and who fought, and were killed (in My Cause), verily, I will remit from them their evil deeds and admit them into Gardens under which rivers flow (in Paradise); a reward from Allâh, and with Allâh is the best of rewards.”

The relationship between Allah and the Muslims is central to the problem.

  • 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 .

Master: slave; they do Allah’s wet work, killing his enemies. What if they don’t?

  • 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 Allâh is Able to do all things.

There are 41 instances of “painful torment” in the Noble Qur’an.  Muslims get their ticket to Paradise by jihad, and are damned if they don’t.  That is the root of the problem. Terrorism: what Islam is; what Muslims do.

Define Radical Islam


This was delayed by a posting error last August.

A wall post at the Stop the Islamization of America page attracted my attention because it purported to be a statement by Dr. Tawfik Hamid calling on Muslims to  renounce several key Islamic doctrines as radical and unacceptable in modern times.   The content of that wall post aroused my skepticism  so I did a search, which turned up this ABCs Test of Radical Islam.

The time has come to define Radical Islam. Please ask your local mosque, Islamic Shool, and Islamic organization to clearly, unambiguously and publically denounce the following concepts:

Apostates killing

Beating women and stoning women to death for adultery

Calling Jews pigs and monkeys.

Declaring war on Non Muslims to spread Islam after offering Non Muslims three options – subjugate to Islam, pay Jizia (a humiliating tax), or be killed.

Enslavement of Other Human Beings.

Fighting and killing Jews before the “End of Days”.

Gay killing.

A true moderate person or organization must be able to immediately denounce the above concepts and stand publicly and unambiguously against them.

The Muslim world must not expect the world to call Islam peaceful as long as they teach and promote the above teaching.

A clear stand is needed from leading Islamic Scholars all over the world against the above ABCs.

That did not exactly match what was posted  on the wall, so I checked a link in the left sidebar, which only duplicated the original content.  Further searching turned up text exactly matching the wall post. I found this at Stop Radical Islam.

Is Your Local Mosque ‘Moderate’ or ‘Radical’?

Ask the Imams of Mosques, the Muslim leaders, and the Islamic organizations in the US and worldwide to sign this declaration (See below)

by Tawfik Hamid

http://www.tawfikhamid.com

After the problem of Ground Zero Mosque has escalated it becomes an urgent necessity to distinguish ‘Moderate’ from ‘Radical’ Islam. Without making such a distinction the US and the rest of the world will remain divided regarding this issue. Debates about the issue can be endless unless we define the words ‘radical’ and ‘moderate’.

Mosque leaders, Islamic scholars, and organizations who want to be considered Moderates MUST clearly and unambiguously declare the following declaration in their media outlets and on their websites.

I suggest that you send this declaration to Mosque leaders and the Islamic organizations inside the US and worldwide to see if they are ready to accept such a declaration or not.

Please feel free to circulate this newsletter so that we can start a process that allows us to distinguish radical from moderate Islam.

Declaration of Beliefs of Muslim Moderates –

I (We) are Muslims who want contemporary understandings of Islam to replace currently predominant harsh and radical (Salafi/Wahabbi) interpretations of our religion. We therefore declare that:

1-    Redda Law, the Sharia Law that allows the killing of Muslims who convert to other faiths, must be banned in Islamic teachings and in Sharia legal doctrine.  Islamic countries that practice Sharia must stop the practice of this law and must admit that Freedom of belief and the right to convert to other faith or believe is a basic right that must be given to all Muslims.

2-    Current mainstream Sharia doctrines justify the use of violence against women.  They encourage men to beat their wives to discipline them.  They allow women accused of adultery to be stoned to death.  These doctrines are barbarically inhumane, non-egalitarian, and teach Muslim children to be violent.  These teachings must be ended by reinterpreting the Islamic text that justifies such violence.

3-    Traditional Sharia doctrines teach Muslims that they must engage in war so that Islam will dominate the world.  When Islam becomes dominant, Non-Muslims are offered three options: to convert to Islam, to pay Jizzia (a humiliating tax), or to be killed.  These doctrines run contrary to modern respect for diversity and for personal freedom of speech and belief.  This understanding of Jihad that seeks domination of Islam over other peoples must no longer be regarded as an Islamic value and its teaching as a duty for Muslims must end.

The early Islamic wars known as “Futohaat Islameia” were fought to implement this doctrine of Jihad. These wars therefore should now be regarded as un-Islamic and un-justifiable.

4-   Jews are individuals who deserve the same respect accorded to all individuals.  They should not be called “pigs and monkeys.”  The Islamic teaching that Muslims must fight and kill all Jews before the end of days is totally incorrect and unacceptable as it does not exist in the Quran.  All teachings that encourage anti-Semitic attitudes, violence or disrespect toward Jews must be declared un-Islamic.

5-    Slavery is a crime against humanity. All Sharia laws that justify slavery in our modern times must not be taught any more. Muslim scholars must have a clear and loud voice against slavery.

6-    Islamic Sharia laws currently permit the killing homosexuals.  These laws also are advocating a crime against our fellow human beings.  They must be declared un-Islamic and their implementation must be considered criminal.

Signed,

Dr. Tawfik Hamid

The above violent teachings, which currently are taught in mainstream Islamic books in America, are implemented in countries that allow governance according to Sharia Law. Future Muslim generations must be protected from these destructive doctrines, interpretations and customs.

These violent Sharia doctrines must be replaced with clear and unconditional explanations of why they no longer are valid.

Anything short of a fully clear and unequivocal stand against these doctrines indicates passive approval. Therefore, all Islamic leaders who genuinely consider themselves to be Muslim moderates must post these principles in English and in Arabic in full public view on their websites and declare them in their media outlets.

Failure to publically post and support these principles should be interpreted as clear evidence that a leader’s mosque or Islamic organization must be considered radical.

I found the same text at Act! For America. I guess I should be more regular in reading my email; I see that some of my friends beat me to this.

I want to focus first on one key clause from the comment: “unconditional explanations of why they no longer are valid”.  Were those doctrines ever valid?  Why were they valid then, and what terminated their validity?  Has Allah changed his will or his word since 632?

  1. 4:88. Then what is the matter with you that you are divided into two parties about the hypocrites? Allâh has cast them back (to disbelief) because of what they have earned. Do you want to guide him whom Allâh has made to go astray? And he whom Allâh has made to go astray, you will never find for him any way (of guidance).4:89. They wish that you reject Faith, as they have rejected (Faith), and thus that you all become equal (like one another). So take not Auliyâ’ (protectors or friends) from them, till they emigrate in the Way of Allâh (to Muhammad ). But if they turn back (from Islâm), take (hold) of them and kill them wherever you find them, and take neither Auliyâ’ (protectors or friends) nor helpers from them.

    Was it invalid when Allah said it? If  so, why is it no longer valid?  If not, why did he say it?

    Sahih Bukhari Volume 9, Book 84, Number 57:

    Narrated ‘Ikrima:

    Some Zanadiqa (atheists) were brought to ‘Ali and he burnt them. The news of this event, reached Ibn ‘Abbas who said, “If I had been in his place, I would not have burnt them, as Allah’s Apostle forbade it, saying, ‘Do not punish anybody with Allah’s punishment (fire).’ I would have killed them according to the statement of Allah’s Apostle, ‘Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'”

    Was that valid when Moe said it?  If so, why was it valid then but not now?  Here is the Islamic law which is founded on those revelations and sayings.

    08.1 When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.

    08.2 In such a case, it is obligatory for the caliph (A: or his representative) to ask him to repent and return to Islam. If he does, it is
    accepted from him, but if he refuses, he is immediately killed.

    Was that provision of Shari’ah valid when it was codified?  Why is it invalid now?

  2. 4:34. Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allâh has made one of them to excel the other, and because they spend (to support them) from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient (to Allâh and to their husbands), and guard in the husband’s absence what Allâh orders them to guard (e.g. their chastity, their husband’s property, etc.). As to those women on whose part you see ill­conduct, admonish them (first), (next), refuse to share their beds, (and last) beat them (lightly, if it is useful), but if they return to obedience, seek not against them means (of annoyance). Surely, Allâh is Ever Most High, Most Great.”…I (the narrator Laqit) then said: Messenger of Allah, I have a wife who has something (wrong) in her tongue, i.e. she is insolent. He said: Then divorce her. I said: Messenger of Allah, she had company with me and I have children from her. He said: Then ask her (to obey you). If there is something good in her, she will do so (obey); and do not beat your wife as you beat your slave-girl. ” Sunan Abu Dawud 1.0142

    24:2. The woman and the man guilty of illegal sexual intercourse, flog each of them with a hundred stripes. Let not pity withhold you in their case, in a punishment prescribed by Allâh, if you believe in Allâh and the Last Day. And let a party of the believers witness their punishment. (This punishment is for unmarried persons guilty of the above crime but if married persons commit it, the punishment is to stone them to death, according to Allâh’s Law).

    Were those rulings valid when they were issued? If so, why are they now invalid?

  3. 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.

    9:33. It is He Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad ) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islâm), to make it superior over all religions even though the Mushrikûn (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allâh) hate (it).

    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.”

    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 Objectives of Jihad

    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
    o9.9 The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim

    Were those imperatives valid when issued?  Were the confirmation and codification valid?  If so, why are they no longer valid?

  4. 5:60. Say (O Muhammad  to the people of the Scripture): “Shall I inform you of something worse than that, regarding the recompense from Allâh: those (Jews) who incurred the Curse of Allâh and His Wrath, those of whom (some) He transformed into monkeys and swines, those who worshipped Tâghût (false deities); such are worse in rank (on the Day of Resurrection in the Hell­fire), and far more astray from the Right Path (in the life of this world).”7:167. And (remember) when your Lord declared that He would certainly keep on sending against them (i.e. the Jews), till the Day of Resurrection, those who would afflict them with a humiliating torment. Verily, your Lord is Quick in Retribution (for the disobedient, wicked) and certainly He is Oft­Forgiving, Most Merciful (for the obedient and those who beg Allâh’s Forgiveness).

    …In the future, the Jews will support the Dajjal (False Messiah); and the Muslims, along with `Isa, son of Mary, will kill the Jews. This will occur just before the end of this world….Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir

    Sahih Muslim  Book 041, Number 6985:
    Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.

    Was 5:60 valid when it was revealed?  Was the genocidal prophecy valid when it was revealed?  If so, whey are they invalidated?

  5. 33:26. And those of the people of the Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers) Allâh brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts, (so that) a group (of them) you killed, and a group (of them) you made captives.o9.13 When a child or a woman is taken captive, they become slaves by the fact of capture, and the woman’s previous marriage is immediately
    annulled.

    Were that exemplar & ruling valid when they were issued?  If so, what has happened to invalidate them?

  6. 27:55. “Do you approach men in your lusts rather than women? Nay, but you are a people who behave senselessly.”
    27:58. And We rained down on them a rain (of stones). So evil was the rain of those who were warned. 

    Sunan Abu Dawud Book 38, Number 4447:
    Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas:
    The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: If you find anyone doing as Lot’s people did, kill the one who does it, and the one to whom it is done.

    o12.2 If the offender is someone with the capacity to remain chaste, then he or she is stoned to death…
    Were those rulings valid when issued? If so, what has robbed them of their validity?

A decent respect for human rights & dignity requires a rational person to reject those Islamic laws entirely.  It is not possible that they could ever possess any validity.  But Allah’s word  declares that it is perfected. Alllah’s word also says that it can not be changed and that it must be entirely accepted.

By what  scripture or tradition will the moderates justify abjuring the above listed  ayat, ahadith & Shari’ah?   And how shall they evade this trap?
Reliance of the Traveller, o8.7 lists 20 acts which entail apostasy.  The seventh item in that list is:  “(7) to deny any verse of the Koran or anything which by scholarly consensus (def: b7) belongs to it, or to add a verse that does not belong to it;”.  One of the rules they want to declare invalid subjects them to the death penalty as apostates!  They deny no less than 10  ayat.

I admit that normative Islam is actually “radical”  as  it was when Moe preached and practiced it.   If any Imam  makes a public endorsement of Dr. Hamid’s statement, I will be as surprised as I would be if they signed the Ground Zero Declaration.  If any Muslim who reads this presents the test and statement to his Imam and governing board, I hope that he will come back and report the results in a comment.

Christmas Terror


An AP story carried by  AOL News tells us a little about the new threat of holiday terrorism and our government’s reaction.  I was seeking President Obama’s remarks, but could not find them.  The following quote stands out.

“We are concerned these terrorists may seek to exploit the likely significant psychological impact of an attack targeting mass gatherings in large metropolitan areas during the 2010 holiday season, which has symbolic importance to many in the United States,” the joint FBI and Homeland Security bulletin said.

 

psychological impact

Shock, fear & outrage can be expected. Terrorism is intended to create the maximum possible emotional impact in order to break our will and ability to mount effective resistance.  Inducing paranoia would go a long way toward that tactical objective.

symbolic importance

Its Christmas, for Chrissake!  Mass casualty attacks synchronized with religious celebrations are designed to accomplish another significant strategic objective: breaking our faith.

The implied message: ‘your faith is unfounded, you have no helper; your god won’t protect you from us’.  The message is clearly stated in Allah’s damnable book. [Emphasis added, links to Noble Qur’an for context.]

  • 3:110. You [true believers in Islâmic Monotheism, and real followers of Prophet Muhammad  and his Sunnah (legal ways, etc.)] are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-Ma’rûf (i.e. Islâmic Monotheism and all that Islâm has ordained) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and all that Islâm has forbidden), and you believe in Allâh. And had the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) believed, it would have been better for them; among them are some who have faith, but most of them are Al-Fâsiqûn (disobedient to Allâh – and rebellious against Allâh’s Command).
      • …”the best of peoples for the people, as you bring them with chains on their necks till they embrace Islam”… [Sahih Bukhari 6.60.80]
  • 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
    • …”This is what occurred, for at the battle of Khaybar, Allah brought humiliation and disgrace to the Jews. Before that, the Jews in Al-Madinah, the tribes of Qaynuqa`, Nadir and Qurayzah, were also humiliated by Allah. Such was the case with the Christians in the area of Ash-Sham later on, when the Companions defeated them in many battles and took over the leadership of Ash-Sham forever. There shall always be a group of Muslims in Ash-Sham area until `Isa, son of Maryam, descends while they are like this ﴿on the truth, apparent and victorious﴾. `Isa will at that time rule according to the Law of Muhammad , break the cross, kill the swine, banish the Jizyah and only accept Islam from the people.”…[Tafsir Ibn Kathir]

Brig. S.K. Malik wrote The Qur’anic Concept of War as a training manual for the army of Pakistan.  His analysis will help you to comprehend their strategy. Terror is both a means and an end.  This paragraph comes from the bottom of page 59. [Emphasis added.]

Terror struck into the hearts of the enemies is not only
a means, it is the end in itself. Once a condition of terror into
the opponent’s heart is obtained, hardly anything is left to be
achieved. It is the point where the means and the end meet
and merge. Terror is not a means of imposing decision upon
the enemy; it is me decision we wish to impose upon him.

There is one necessary prerequisite for instilling terror: the destruction of our faith. Islam’s strong faith shields Muslims from being terrorized. This paragraph comes from page 60. [Emphasis added.]

Terror cannot be struck into the hearts of an army by merely
cutting its lines of communication or depriving it of its routes
of withdrawal. It is basically related to the strength or weakness
of the human soul. It can be instilled only if the opponent’s
Faith is destroyed. Psychological dislocation is temporary;
spiritual dislocation is permanent. Psychological dislocation can be
produced by a physical act but this does not hold good of the
spiritual dislocation. To instill terror into the hearts of the enemy,
it is essential. in the ultimate analysis, to dislocate his Faith. An
invincible Faith is immune to terror. A weak Faith offers inroads
to terror. The Faith conferred upon us by the Holy Qur’an has
the inherent strength to ward off terror from us and to enable
us to strike terror into the enemy. Whatever the form or type of
strategy directed against the enemy, it must, in order to be effective,
be capable of striking terror into the hearts of the enemy. A strategy
that fails to attain this condition suffers from inherent drawbacks
and weaknesses; and should be reviewed and modified. This rule
is fully applicable to nuclear as well as conventional wars. It is
equally true of the strategy of nuclear deterrence in fashion
today. To be credible and effective, the strategy of deterrence
must be capable of striking terror into the hearts of the enemy.

The scriptural & traditional basis for terrorism is presented in detail in this blog post.  The scriptural basis which motivates Muslims to perform acts of terrorism is detailed in this blog post.  The most important of those ayat is 9:120. On Judgment Day, Allah will weigh each Muslims sins against his good deeds. If the balance swings to the left, the Muslim will be cast into the fire. If it swings right, he will enter Paradise.  He gets credit for anything he does to anger or injure us.

  • 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
    • …”(but is written to their credit) as compensation for these steps that are not under their control, but a consequence of performing good deeds that earn them tremendous rewards,”… [Tafsir Ibn Kathir]

President Obama,  Secretary of Defense Gates & Secretary of State Clinton pretend that jihad can be countered by killing or imprisoning a few al-Qaeda & Taliban leaders.  How many Hamas leaders has Israel killed and imprisoned?  Has that stopped the attacks on Israel?

You could nuke Afghanistan, Pakistan & Mecca but the jihad would continue.  It can not be stopped short of breaking their faith.  Muslims must cease to be Muslims, abandoning their belief in Allah & emulation of Moe.  So long as they continue to believe what Moe said and emulate what he did, they will present an existential threat.

Its the ideology, stupid!

  • “There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger.”
  • “Only Allah has the right to be worshiped.”
  • “Only Allah has the right to rule.”
  • “Allah’s word must be made superior.”

If you do not disabuse Muslims of those ideas, your cause is lost unless you kill all of them. Nobody is willing to kill them all, so the only course of action is obvious.

Compare & contrast Jehovah & Allah, Jesus & Moe.  Show the Muslims exactly what kind of man Moe was. Show them how he issued situational scripture to bless his sins. Show them how he permitted and engaged in the rape of captive women.  Show them how he suborned murders of his critics.

Show them how “merciful and compassionate” Allah is, how he created a group of people predestined for the fire. Show them how the existence of Israel proves Allah to be an impotent idol whose promises are void.  Use comic books, videos and cartoons to illustrate and explain the Qur’an, Sunnah & Sira to show Muslims what Moe said and did.

If you will not throw more energy and resources into fighting the war of ideas, you will be compelled to use nukes in the military war.

The Essence of Islam


On line dialogue with Muslims usually does not result in breakthroughs.  One such exchange, in the Islam is a CRIME! discussion thread in the ISLAM: Not compatible with western values Facebook group, brings an extremely significant fatal fact to the foreground with unusual clarity.

The above linked discussion thread delves into the criminal nature of Islam.  The thread was recently revived by a new commentator who asserts that Islam is peaceful.

My citation of Shari’ah relevant to offensive jihad asghar provoked this response: [All original spelling & syntax.]

Ashraful Haque Rana

8.61 gives the general rule. And u can not say fighting is bad in each and every circumstance. It would have been great to establish peace without fighting but sometimes we r forced to do it.And there are more explanations abt this at the websites I had given u. I explained the Jizya concept(9.29) to u and also gave Yusuf Ali’s commentaries. Reread those parts. U seem to ONLY believe negative commentaries from the so called scholars.

Regarding Ghazwat on tabuk,Read:
http://www.al-islamforall.org/ghazwat/ghazwat/tabuk.htm

Ignoring the denial of war’s status as a social evil, I responded with references to two of Moe’s extortion letters and a hadith which tells how caliph Umar followed up on one of him by sending his army to Persia.  Ashraful’s response is revelatory. I have emphasized the crucial  statement.

Ashraful Haque Rana

Abt level of tolerance,Read this with othr websites I had given u:
http://www.guidedones.com/metapage/non_muslims/Qislamtol10.htm
There r good number of laws given in general sense.

Prevention is better than cure. How can u give guarantee that they will not form such armies. There r many evidence in the History that small armies CAN defeat far more larger armies using good battle strategy,superior weapon,and of course by betraying them.

<<<Peace be upon him who follows true…………… sins of the Magians.”>>> This certainly means it wasn’t possible to preach Islam to Magians of that time.It would be very tough to preach in an unconquered land coz non-muslims might attack any time and kill Muslims at their will.According to Islamic law following other religion is sin. And if someone prevents preaching he is the sole responsible of all the sins.

The problem is not with Islam, The problem is with U. Ur approach has been to prove SOMEHOW that ‘ISLAM: Not compatible with western values’, Never to understand Islam.

This outline of the essential elements may help the uninitiated to comprehend the enormity of the revelation.

  • war is not always bad
    • waged to establish peace
  • necessity of preaching Islam
  • difficulty of preaching Islam to people who have not been conquered
  • sins:
    • not being Muslim
    • obstructing Islam’s spread

To the accepted standards of ‘just war’, Islam adds obstruction of Islam as a casus belli.  But that does not mean  blocking their ‘missionaries’, it means refusing their demands and resisting their invasion.  Moe’s missive to the chiefs of Aqaba makes this point with a fine flourish.

…I do not intend to wage war against you till you receive my written reason for it. It is better for you, either to accept Islam or agree to pay Jiziya and consent to remain obedient to Allah, His prophet and his messengers….

…If you do not accept these terms and set them aside, I do not need your presents and gifts. In that case, I shall have to wage war (to establish peace and security)….

That was an extortion letter. Its essential message was: ‘become Muslims or submit to extortion; otherwise I will invade and conquer you’.  There will be peace and security if we surrender without a fight, otherwise there will be war.

Now we have a Muslim asserting that aggression is justified because we resist Islam and conversion might be difficult if not preceded by conquest.  I do not expect to see a better confirmation of the fatal facts which are open on the text of Islam’s canon.

Obamination: Peace: Hillary Clinton Spews Feces


The news stories about Clinton’s insane remarks about the ‘mid east conflict” center on Obamination’s frustration. It becomes obvious that the primary focus of their frustration and rage is Israel’s refusal to extend the construction moratorium. That is all about kicking & back stabbing Israel while pretending to stroke and support her.

Full text link to the remarks. Video Link.

The secretary of State spoke at the seventh annual forum of the Brookings Institution’s Saban Center for Middle East Policy. One news article described the speech as “lengthy”. The video indicates a run time of 33:10. I find the rant to be insane, dishonest & redundant, a target rich environment I have selected some of the more pungent clumps of feces to kick, for the full context, use the link provided above.

…”we are here discussing tonight – strengthening U.S.-Israeli relations and securing a just and lasting peace in the Middle East.”

relationship

The relationship between America and Israel has been one of treachery & enmity ever since Shrub went back on his wiser word and devised the Road Map to Hell. We need to tear down that relationship and start over. Two sovereign nations, supposedly allies, should not be attempting to dictate to or dominate each other. There should be mutual respect, not condescension.

just & lasting peace

Peace imposed by aggressive conquest is not a just peace. Peace resulting from appeasing an aggressor is neither just nor lasting. A just peace can only result from a decision of victory for the victim, not for the aggressor. Lasting peace can only result from breaking the aggressor’s will & capacity to launch repeated conquests. In the case of Islam, lasting peace can only come from extinction. Now is the time to dig in with our pitch fork, remove the feces, and expose the core of the conflict.

* Allah commanded the Muslims to wage war against Jews.

o 9:29 Make war upon such of those to whom the Scriptures have been given as believe not in God, or in the last day, and who forbid not that which God and His Apostle have forbidden, and who profess not the profession of the truth, until they pay tribute out of hand, and they be humbled.

* Moe confirmed the order.

o Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 196:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah ‘s Apostle said, ” I have been ordered to fight with the people till they say, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah,’ and whoever says, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah,’ his life and property will be saved by me except for Islamic law, and his accounts will be with Allah, (either to punish him or to forgive him.)”

* Moe expressed his preference for the conquest of the Levant.

o Sunan Abu Dawud 14.2477

Narrated Ibn Hawalah:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: It will turn out that you will be armed troops, one is Syria, one in the Yemen and one in Iraq. Ibn Hawalah said: Choose for me, Apostle of Allah, if I reach that time. He replied: Go to Syria, for it is Allah’s chosen land, to which his best servants will be gathered but if you are unwilling, go to your Yemen, and draw water from your tanks, for Allah has on my account taken special charge of Syria and its people.

* The gates of Paradise will not swing open for Muslims until they hunt down and kill the last Jew.

o Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 177:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”

* Allah gave the command, Moe confirmed it, Umar carried it out.

o Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 53, Number 386:

Narrated Jubair bin Haiya:

‘Umar sent the Muslims to the great countries to fight the pagans. …

* Allah will always send someone to harass the Jews.

o 7:167. And (remember) when your Lord declared that He would certainly keep on sending against them (i.e. the Jews), till the Day of Resurrection, those who would afflict them with a humiliating torment. Verily, your Lord is Quick in Retribution (for the disobedient, wicked) and certainly He is Oft­Forgiving, Most Merciful (for the obedient and those who beg Allâh’s Forgiveness).

* Jesus will return to help them finish the job.

o Sunan Abu Dawud 37.4310: …He will fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam….

o Eternal Humiliation placed on the Jews [Tafsir Ibn Kathir] …In the future, the Jews will support the Dajjal (False Messiah); and the Muslims, along with `Isa, son of Mary, will kill the Jews….

* Allah will give the land to Muslims, through conquests, his decision is irreversible.

o 13:41. See they not that We gradually reduce the land (of disbelievers, by giving it to the believers, in war victories) from its outlying borders. And Allâh judges, there is none to put back His Judgement and He is Swift at reckoning.

* If a reversal occurs, the Muslims must reconquer the land.

o 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.

* Allah promised a 2: 1 kill ratio.

o 8:66. Now Allâh has lightened your (task), for He knows that there is weakness in you. So if there are of you a hundred steadfast persons, they shall overcome two hundred, and if there are a thousand of you, they shall overcome two thousand with the Leave of Allâh. And Allâh is with As-Sâbirin (the patient ones, etc.).

* Allah gave the Muslims “good news” !

o The Good News that Muslims will Dominate the People of the Book [Tafsir Ibn Kathir]

“While delivering the good news to His believing servants that victory and dominance will be theirs against the disbelieving, atheistic People of the Scriptures, Allah then said, (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.) ﴿3:111

Islam is the “obstacle to peace”!

The first fact which must be faced is Allah’s command, with Moe’s confirmation. Then there is his special interest in the Levant, his predictions, his promises and his good news. The restoration of the state of Israel contradicts and disproves Allah’s promise & good news. It proves Allah to be an impotent idol, the ultimate blasphemy. Muslims can never tolerate that.

There was no peace, there is no peace and there will be no peace while there are Muslims alive on this planet. It ain’t possible! Anyone who tells you otherwise is a fool, a liar or both.

The damnable doctrines of Islam, not settlements, not Jerusalem, not “refugees”, not “occupation”; Islam is the “obstacle to peace”! In Islam, peace is what happens when Dar ul-Islam engulfs Dar ul-Harb through conquest. Peace comes with conquest. Until the conquest is completed, there is “fitna”. I do not expect that I will ever hear any politician acknowledge this fatal fact.

I want to focus tonight on the way forward, on America’s continuing engagement in helping the parties achieve a two-state solution that ends the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians once and for all, and on what it will take, finally, to realize that elusive, but essential goal.

two-state solution

Eliminating Islam is the solution. There is no other just solution. Creating another terrorist state entity will make the problem worse, not solve it. Muslims do not want a state, they want a single nation of Islam, on a global scale: the caliphate.

ends the conflict permanently

The conflict is existential: While the nation of Israel exists; while one Jew lives, Believers must wage war, that is their role in life. When Israel and Jews are eliminated, they will concentrate on conquering us. Politicians can not acknowledge the fact that Islam is the source of conflict.

The United States will always be there when Israel is threatened.

when Israel is threatened

Israel is always threatened, that is the constant. It is not possible for Muslims to cease threatening and attacking Israel.

We have also stepped up efforts to block the transfer of dangerous weapons and financing to terrorist groups like Hezbollah and Hamas. But Iran and its proxies are not the only threat to regional stability or to Israel’s long-term security. The conflict between Israel and the Palestinians and between Israel and Arab neighbors is a source of tension and an obstacle to prosperity and opportunity for all the people of the region. It denies the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people and it poses a threat to Israel’s future security. It is at odds also with the interests of the United States.

terrorist groups

Islam is the terrorist group “terrorist groups” are composed of believers. Only those who wage war are believers, its what Islam is; what Muslims do.

Iran and its proxies

“Its Islam, stgupid.” Iran, Hamas & Hezbollah are Muslims. Terrorism: what Islam is; what Muslims do. Moe is their role model, he was a terrorist.

legitimate aspirations

Since when are regional & global conquest “legitimate aspirations”? There is nothing legitimate about genocide & politicide. They do not give a damn about statehood; they need to eliminate Israel as a stepping stone to continued and expanding conquest.

conflict between Israel

and the Palestinians

That is a code phrase for Israel’s resistance to reconquest. If Israel would just surrender, the whole problem would be solved.

I know that improvements in security and growing prosperity have convinced some that this conflict can be waited out or largely ignored. This view is wrong and it is dangerous. The long-term population trends that result from the occupation are endangering the Zionist vision of a Jewish and democratic state in the historic homeland of the Jewish people. Israelis should not have to choose between preserving both elements of their dream. But that day is approaching.

the occupation

In the seventh century, Umar conquered the Roman Province of Syria. Muslims invaded and occupied Israel. Barack Hussein Obama & Hillary Clinton can’t get a clue. The ‘occupation’ & ‘settlements’ they bitterly kvetch about are smokescreens that prevent us from perceiving the real illegal occupation & settlements.

Jewish homeland

Is there any good reason why Jews should not return to their ancient patrimony? England conquered it from the Ottoman Empire which was one of the aggressors in the first world war. She promised to return it to its rightful heirs and reneged, giving 75% of it to the Hashemites driven from the Hijaz by Saud, as a consolation prize. In the 1948 war, Egypt & Jordan illegally seized Gaza, Judea & Samaria. When they renewed their genocidal assault in 1967, Israel won them back. There is no good reason why Israel should not annex and settle that land There is no good reason why Israel should surrender it or why it should be judenrein!

At the same time, the ever-evolving technology of war, especially the expanding reach of the rockets amassed on Israel’s borders means that it will be increasingly difficult to guarantee the security of Israeli families throughout the country without implementing peace agreements that answer these threats.

peace agreements

Conceited, arrogant fools imagine that peace is made by agreements. Peace is made by victory, not by agreements! In an existential conflict, there can be no peace while the aggressor exists. Muslims are bound by a religious obligation to exterminate Israel. They can not get into Paradise until they finish that task. Get a clue!

Muslims do not make peace agreements, they make hudna, which last no more than ten years, and can be abrogated as soon as the Muslims recover sufficient strength to resume aggression. They are commanded not to be weak and “ask not for peace” while they have the upper hand.

“Radicalization of the region’s young people and growing support for violent ideologies undermine the stability and prosperity of the Middle East.”

Radicalization

Radicals & extremists are imaginary creatures, they do not exist. Islam consists of believers. To discover what believers are and what they do, read 9:111 & 49:15.

…”ending this conflict once and for all and achieving a comprehensive regional peace is imperative for safeguarding Israelis’ future.”

ending this conflict once and for all

A single kernel of truth in a massive pile of feces.

“We also look at our friends the Palestinians, and we remember the painful history of a people who have never had a state of their own, and we are renewed in our determination to help them finally realize their legitimate aspirations. The lack of peace and the occupation that began in 1967 continue to deprive the Palestinian people of dignity and self-determination. This is unacceptable, and, ultimately, it too is unsustainable.”

our friends

Israel is our friend, we should be theirs. Falestinians are our enemies, not our friends.

state of their own

Some of them had Egypt, others had Jordan, Iraq or Yemen. They occupied Israel; they have no right to it..

…”bring a just, lasting, and comprehensive peace to the Middle East based on two states for two peoples.”

two states for two peoples.

Israel and the Hashemite Kingdom of Trans-Jordan; what did that solve? What will the creation of another Falestinian state solve? What is the difference between the Falestinians and the majority in Jordan?

…:their respective aspirations; for the Israelis, security and recognition; for the Palestinians, an independent, viable sovereign state of their own.”

aspirations

1. Reconquest of Israel.

2. Global conquest.

“There is no alternative other than reaching mutual agreement.”

no alternative

There is no alternative to victory!

…”they have not yet made the difficult decisions that peace requires.”

difficult decisions

1. Abandon Islam.

2. Abandon Jihad.

3. Recognize Israel’s right to exist.

…”moving forward with refocused goals and expectations.”

refocused goals and expectations

Forcing Israel to commit suicide.

“It is time to grapple with the core issues of the conflict on borders and security; settlements, water and refugees; and on Jerusalem itself”

core issues

Islam, jihad, genocide, terrorism. There are no other issues.

borders

Israel’s borders with Jordan & Egypt, Lebanon & Syria.

security

Eliminate Islam from a circle whose center is Jerusalem and whose radius is the longest rocket range.

settlements

Remove the Muslim settlements from Israel.

refugees

Resettle them in the Arab countries their ancestors left when they occupied Israel.

…”continue to urge the states of the region to develop the content of the Arab Peace Initiative and to work toward implementing its vision.”

Arab Peace Initiative

Reconquest of Israel followed by the rest of the world.

“Significantly, both sides decided together to pursue a framework agreement that would establish the fundamental compromises on all permanent status issues and pave the way for a final peace treaty.”

decided together

Abbas never took the first step toward that objective, he dragged his feet all the way.

…”the parties can begin to rebuild confidence, demonstrate their seriousness, and hopefully find enough common ground on which to eventually re-launch direct negotiations and achieve that framework.”

rebuild confidence

That sentence is full of code phrases for “surrender first, then we can talk about the terms”.

“The Palestinian leaders must be able to show their people that the occupation will be over.”

occupation will be over

The occupation will be over when the Arabs go home. When will they leave Israel?

“Israeli leaders must be able to offer their people internationally recognized borders that protect Israel’s security.”

borders

Borders do not stop rockets, mortars, artillery shells or homicide bombers, regardless of international recognition. When Israel built a wall to protect her citizens, the whole world condemned it.

“Second, on refugees. This is a difficult and emotional issue, but there must be a just and permanent solution that meets the needs of both sides.”

refugees

Arab leaders told them to evacuate, clearing the way for their armies to exterminate the Jews. They failed. That’s tough. You lost, get over it and go home to Egypt and Jordan, where you belong.

“The position of the United States on settlements has not changed and will not change. Like every American administration for decades, we do not accept the legitimacy of continued settlement activity. We believe their continued expansion is corrosive not only to peace efforts and two-state solution, but to Israel’s future itself.”

settlements

For what good reason should Jews not live where their ancestors lived before Rome expelled them from their homeland? For what good reason should Jews not live in Hebron, where their ancestors are buried? Why should any part of the world be judenrein?

“And finally, on Jerusalem which is profoundly important for Jews, Muslims, and Christians everywhere. There will surely be no peace without an agreement on this, the most sensitive of all the issues. The religious interests of people of all faiths around the world must be respected and protected. We believe that through good faith negotiations, the parties should mutually agree on an outcome that realizes the aspirations for both parties, for Jerusalem, and safeguard its status for people around the world.”

Jerusalem

Why should Jews not live in the city King David built up, where King Solomon built the Temple? In 1948, when King Hussein illegally seized half the city, he promised to allow access. He violated that vow, excluding Jews, desecrating synagogues & cemeteries. Why should that injustice be repeated??

religious interests

What religious interest? Moe had a nightmare in which he rode a flying mule with the face of a woman from Medina to Jerusalem and from there to Paradise where he met the Prophets. The Jews had Jerusalem as their capital city and built their Temple there. Jesus was crucified there. How does Moe’s dream match those interests and connections??

…”maintaining pressure on Hamas to end the weapons smuggling and accept the fundamental principles of peacemaking – recognizing Israel, renouncing violence, and abiding by past agreements. This is the only path to achieve Palestinians’ dreams of independence.”

pressure on Hamas

What pressure? Who ever stopped or even slowed their rearmament? Yeah, right, and Res 1701 would prevent Hexbollah from rearming.

recognizing Israel

What makes any fool think that will ever happen? Hamas is Islam. Islam is Hamas. Islam is a religious obligation to exterminate Jews and conquer the world. Has Hillary ever considered reading the Charter of Hamas?

renouncing violence

You might as well demand that they renounce Islam!

past agreements

Arafat made an agreement, and never implemented any of its provisions. Hamas never made any agreement with Israel, what fool expects them to abide by the Oslo Accords?

“As the Palestinian security forces continue to become more professional and capable, we look to Israel to facilitate their efforts.” … “And we hope to see a significant curtailment of incursions by Israeli troops into Palestinian areas.”

Palestinian security forces

The grand scheme was that they would stop terror attacks. Instead of stopping attacks, they participate in them. Israel has to send troops in to arrest terrorists because the “security forces” won’t do it. They are not professional nor capable, neither are they willing.

“The legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people will never be satisfied, and Israel will never enjoy secure and recognized borders until there is a two-state solution that ensures dignity, justice, and security for all.”

legitimate aspirations

Hillary has studied from Paul Joseph Goebbels, who said that a lie would be believed if repeated with sufficient frequency. The sentence is redundant, and full of excrement.

“The United States and the international community cannot impose a solution. Sometimes I think both parties seem to think we can. We cannot. And even if we could, we would not, because it is only a negotiated agreement between the parties that will be sustainable. The parties themselves have to want it.”

parties must want peace

“From the river to the sea.” “A million martyrs marching to Jerusalem!” Yeah, right, they want peace; give it to them! How many MOABs would it take?

“Palestinians must appreciate Israel’s legitimate security concerns And Israelis must accept the legitimate territorial aspirations of the Palestinian people.”

legitimate territorial aspirations

What is legitimate about “from the river to the sea”?

“They should help build confidence, work to minimize distractions, and focus on the core questions, even in a period when they are not talking directly.”

build confidence

I already dissected that crap; the sentence is redundant, an attempt to summarize a manure pile.

“Across the Middle East, moderates and advocates of peace and coexistence will be strengthened, while old arguments will be drained of their venom and the rejectionists and extremists will be exposed and marginalized.”

rejectionists and extremists

What was it the Arab League said? No recognition, no peace, no negotiation? Islam’s deity commanded perpetual warfare; its Profit exemplified it, along with terrorism and genocide. Moe was the founder of Islam, not an extremist. Genocidal jihad is the core of Islam, it is not extremism!

Those arrogant Harvard lawyers are so narcissistic that they believe they can simultaneously promise polar opposites to Arabs & Jews without anyone wising up. Let this be a lesson to you in the 2012 election cycle. Be careful when voting and make no mistakes.

Imam Rauf: Exemplar of Arrogant Deception


At Atlas Shrugs, Pamela Geller quotes from a New York Times article: The Gift of Reconciliation. which  is off to a great start with its headline.  Exactly how can anyone establish cordial relations between predator and prey?  The lion will eat the lamb, not cuddle up  to it.

Geller cites several relevant ayat & ahadith before bringing up other quotes which display the true nature of the Imam.  I will leave that to her. Lets get right to the money quote.

‘‘There is a perception that Jews and Muslims and Christians must be each other’s existential enemies,’’‘

‘To defeat that is an act of reconciliation.’’

What is the basis for that perception? Is it accurate or erroneous? Perhaps Allah’s word will have some clues for us. [Emphasis added, links to Noble Qur’an trans. Hilali & Khan for context. For alternative translations, search at http://www.quranbrowser.com/ ]

5:14. And from those who call themselves Christians, We took their covenant, but they have abandoned a good part of the Message that was sent to them. So We planted amongst them enmity and hatred till the Day of Resurrection (when they discarded Allâh’s Book, disobeyed Allâh’s Messengers and His Orders and transgressed beyond bounds in Allâh’s disobedience), and Allâh will inform them of what they used to do.

 

5:82. Verily, you will find the strongest among men in enmity to the believers (Muslims) the Jews and those who are Al-Mushrikûn (see V.2:105), and you will find the nearest in love to the believers (Muslims) those who say: “We are Christians.” That is because amongst them are priests and monks, and they are not proud.

 

60:4. Indeed there has been an excellent example for you in Ibrâhim (Abraham) and those with him, when they said to their people: “Verily, we are free from you and whatever you worship besides Allâh, we have rejected you, and there has started between us and you, hostility and hatred for ever, until you believe in Allâh Alone,” except the saying of Ibrâhim (Abraham) to his father: “Verily, I will ask for forgiveness (from Allâh) for you, but I have no power to do anything for you before Allâh .” Our Lord! In You (Alone) we put our trust, and to You (Alone) we turn in repentance, and to You (Alone) is (our) final Return,

The relationship between Muslims and disbelievers is established: enmity, hostility & hatred.  How intense is it?

2:161. Verily, those who disbelieve, and die while they are disbelievers, it is they on whom is the Curse of Allâh and of the angels and of mankind, combined.

So, they curse us, big deal. Will they do anything more effectual?

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 commands them to wage war against us. Is that a metaphor or parable, merely part of a social narrative or something more?  Perhaps the exegetes have some guidance for us.

[…]”This honorable Ayah was revealed with the order to fight the People of the Book, after the pagans were defeated, the people entered Allah’s religion in large numbers, and the Arabian Peninsula was secured under the Muslims’ control. 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 Order to fight People of the Scriptures until They give the Jizyah]

Tafsir Ibn Kathir interprets it as an order to fight. Maybe we need to consult earlier tafsirs.

“Fight those who do not believe in God, nor in the Last Day, for, otherwise, they would have believed in the Prophet (s), and who do not forbid what God and His Messenger have forbidden, such as wine, nor do they practise the religion of truth, the firm one, the one that abrogated other religions, namely, the religion of Islam — from among of those who (min, ‘from’, explains [the previous] alladhīna, ‘those who’) have been given the Scripture, namely, the Jews and the Christians, until they pay the jizya tribute, the annual tax imposed them, readily (‘an yadin is a circumstantial qualifier, meaning, ‘compliantly’, or ‘by their own hands’, not delegating it [to others to pay]), being subdued, [being made] submissive and compliant to the authority of Islam.” [Tafsir al-Jalalayn]

 

(Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture) the Jews and Christians (as believe not in Allah nor the Last Day) nor in the bliss of Paradise, (and forbid not) in the Torah (that which Allah hath forbidden by His messenger, and follow not the religion of truth) do not submit themselves to Allah through confession of Allah’s divine Oneness, (until they pay the tribute readily) standing: from hand to hand, (being brought low) abased.”
[
Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs]

Jalalayn & Abbas give us details about everything except the point of interest. :Lets turn to a more modern scholar.

[…]”This is the aim of Jihad with the Jews and the Christians and it is not to force them to become Muslims and adopt the `Islamic Way of Life.’ They should be forced to pay Jizyah in order to put an end to their independence and supremacy so that they should not remain rulers and sovereigns in the land.”[…] [Towards Understanding the Quran]

Maududi seems to confirm the obvious: 9:29 is an order to wage war against Jews & Christians. What did Moe say on this subject?

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.”

 

Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 196:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah ‘s Apostle said, ” I have been ordered to fight with the people till they say, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah,’ and whoever says, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah,’ his life and property will be saved by me except for Islamic law, and his accounts will be with Allah, (either to punish him or to forgive him.)”

Moe said that he was ordered or commanded to fight; what further confirmation is required?  The Ulema based Shari’ah on the words and works of Allah & Moe.  Our final recourse is to Shari’ah. We’ll start with Shafi’ite Fiqh, Reliance of the Traveller.

o9.8: The Objectives of Jihad

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,

“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 caliph makes war on Jews, Christians & Zoroastrians, on the basis of Surah At-Taubah 29; can there be any clearer confirmation of the obvious?  But have we excluded the possibility that the war is defensive?  We turn next to Hanifi Fiqh  found in Al-Hedaya Vol. II, Book IX, Chapter II, page 141 for the answer.

“The destruction of the sword is incurred by infidels, although they be not the first aggressors, as appears from various passages in the sacred writings which are generally received to this effect.”

That confirms the fact that jihad is undertaken on Islamic initiative, it is offensive, not defensive.  Surah At-Taubah 29 is outcome oriented, it has neither geographic nor chronological limits.  Could it be an anachronism, an out dated historical artifact?  Moe made it clear for us in two hadith.

Sunan Abu Dawud Book 14, Number 2526

Narrated Anas ibn Malik:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Three things are the roots of faith: to refrain from (killing) a person who utters, “There is no god but Allah” and not to declare him unbeliever whatever sin he commits, and not to excommunicate him from Islam for his any action; and jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal (Antichrist). The tyranny of any tyrant and the justice of any just (ruler) will not invalidate it. One must have faith in Divine decree.

 

Sahih Muslim Book 041, Number 6985:
Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.

Jihad will be performed continuously until the end of the world, which can’t come until the Muslims kill the last Jew.  That takes care of the anachronism argument. Lets review.

Imam Rauf implied that the perception of existential enmity between Muslims and people of the book is false.  Allah instituted hostility, hatred and enmity against Jews & Christians. Allah commanded Muslims to fight Jews & Christians. Moe said that he was commanded to fight Jews and Christians. Moe amassed an army and marched on Tabuk. Tafsir Ibn Kathir confirms the order to fight. Islamic law codifies the order and confirms that jihad is undertaken aggressively, on Islamic initiative.  Moe also said that jihad would be performed until the end of the world.

Reference to Islam’s canon of scripture, exegesis, tradition & jurisprudence reveals Imam Rauf’s deception. Islam has never been conciliated with Christianity & Judaism and is in a perpetual state of existential warfare against them.  Reconciliation is impossible. Defeating the perception of perpetual existential enmity is nothing less than blinding us to objective factual reality for the purpose of disarming us; rendering us defenseless. The Cordoba Initiative is malignant malarkey.   Q.E.D.
