Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Reading between the Lines of the Sign


Victoria Part Three: The Anti-Islam Guy

The above linked blog post from ’05 contains a photo of Lorenzo Bouchard wearing a sandwich board which reads: ” Awake Islam’s a Religion of War”.
There is a coffee cup in his left hand, fliers in his right. No weapons; no threats. The other side of his sign is a cross.  Here is what the blogger had to write on that occasion.

It seems this guy is downright sick of Muslim fundamentalists blowing stuff up, and offers another crusade as a viable solution. Hold you comments for just one second–there are excellent results from a successful crusade or genocide. You meet your objective of eliminating the thread at hand. However, the collateral damage is usually considered (i.e., should be) to be too significant a cost to pay in exchange for your goals. In this way, most civilized nations prefer to try and isolate and punish criminals as entities-of-themselves and not entities-in-a-state.

You can imagine why I thought this was weird, then. In the US, this kind of reaction is expected. In my peace-loving Canada? No way!

Given a voice crying in the city, warning of Islam’s evil nature & intention, the blogger conjures up the image of a Crusade and imputes genocidal intent. On the other hand, he displays his bias by characterizing the Mujahideen as domestic criminals to be arrested & prosecuted.

The blogger makes the mistake of overlooking the fact that Islam conflates temporal & spiritual power. Moe was Allah’s vice-regent, empowered to rule the world. The structure of Islam’s Caliphate is feudalistic. As Moe conquered one kindom after another, he set up local rulers to maintain control and collect Zakat & Jizya, forwarding them to Mekkah.

  • 8:73. And those who disbelieve are allies to one another, (and) if you (Muslims of the whole world collectively) do not do so (i.e. become allies, as one united block with one Khalifah – chief Muslim ruler for the whole Muslim world to make victorious Allâh’s Religion of Islâmic Monotheism), there will be Fitnah (wars, battles, polytheism, etc.) and oppression on earth, and a great mischief and corruption (appearance of polytheism).

Moe’s intent was to have one monolithic entity:  Ummah al-Islamiyya, the Nation of Islam.

Jihad is war, not a common domestic criminal offense. Jihad is also a mandatory intrinsic sacrament of Islam, which, by Islamic law, must be carried out at least once in every year.

  • 2:216. Jihâd (holy fighting in Allâh’s Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allâh knows but you do not know.

  • 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.

  • 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 Allah and your enemy, and others besides whom, you may not know but whom Allah does know. And whatever you shall spend in the Cause of Allah shall be repaid unto you, and you shall not be treated unjustly.

  • 9:29.Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

  • 9:123.O you who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are close to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allâh is with those who are the Al-Muttaqûn (the pious – see V.2:2).

What is Jihad?  The parenthetical in 2:216 says “holy fighting in Allah’s cause”. What is Allah’s cause?

  • Sahih Bukhari  Volume 4, Book 52, Number 65:

    Narrated Abu Musa:

    A man came to the Prophet and asked, “A man fights for war booty; another fights for fame and a third fights for showing off; which of them fights in Allah’s Cause?” The Prophet said, “He who fights that Allah’s Word (i.e. Islam) should be superior, fights in Allah’s Cause.”

What is the legal definition? Umdat as-Salik has the answer.

Chapter O9.0: Jihad

(O: Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada signifying warfare to establish the religion. And it is the lesser jihad. As for the greater jihad, it is spiritual warfare against the lower self (nafs), which is why the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said as he was returning from jihad.

“We have returned from the lesser jihad to the greater jihad.”

The scriptural basis for jihad, prior to scholarly consensus (def: b7) is such Koranic verses as:

-1- “Fighting is prescribed for you” (Koran 2:216);

-2- “Slay them wherever you find them” (Koran 4:89);

-3- “Fight the idolators utterly” (Koran 9:36);

and such hadiths as the one related by Bukhari and Muslim that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said:

“I have been commanded to fight people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and perform the prayer, and pay zakat. If they say it, they have saved their blood and possessions from me, except for the rights of Islam over them. And their final reckoning is with Allah”;

and the hadith reported by Muslim,

“To go forth in the morning or evening to fight in the path of Allah is better than the whole world and everything in it.”Details concerning jihad are found in the accounts of the military expeditions of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), including his own martial forays and those on which he dispatched others. The former consist of the ones he personally attended, some twenty-seven (others say twenty-nine) of them. He fought in eight of them, and killed only one person with his noble hand, Ubayy ibn Khalaf, at the battle of Uhud. On the latter expeditions he sent others to fight, himself remaining at Medina, and these were forty-seven in number.)

O9.1: The Obligatory Character of Jihad

Jihad is a communal obligation (def: c3.2). When enough people perform it to successfully accomplish it, it is no longer obligatory upon others (O: the evidence for which is the Prophet’s saying (Allah bless him and give him peace),

“He who provides the equipment for a soldier in jihad has himself performed jihad,”

and Allah Most High having said:

“Those of the believers who are unhurt but sit behind are not equal to those who fight in Allah’s path with their property and lives. Allah has preferred those who fight with their property and lives a whole degree above those who sit behind. And to each, Allah has promised great good” (Koran 4:95).

If none of those concerned perform jihad, and it does not happen at all, then everyone who is aware that it is obligatory is guilty of sin, if there was a possibility of having performed it. In the time of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) jihad was a communal obligation after his emigration (hijra) to Medina. As for subsequent times, there are two possible states in respect to non-Muslims.

The first is when they are in their own countries, in which case jihad (def: 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.

The second state is when non-Muslims invade a Muslim country or near to one, in which case jihad is personally obligatory (def: c3.2) upon the inhabitants of that country, who must repel the non-Muslims with whatever they can).

Jihad akbar is an-nafs; how the Hell do you get killed that way? Get a clue, for Chrissake!

  • 4:74. Let those (believers) who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter fight in the Cause of Allâh, and whoso fights in the Cause of Allâh, and is killed or gets victory, We shall bestow on him a great reward.

  • 9:111Verily, 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.

Do you think it couldn’t possibly mean that; it must be mis-translated or mis-interpreted? Pull your head out of your anus long enough to re-read the last paragraph of O9.0

“To go forth in the morning or evening to fight in the path of Allah is better than the whole world and everything in it.”Details concerning jihad are found in the accounts of the military expeditions of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), including his own martial forays and those on which he dispatched others. The former consist of the ones he personally attended, some twenty-seven (others say twenty-nine) of them. He fought in eight of them, and killed only one person with his noble hand, Ubayy ibn Khalaf, at the battle of Uhud. On the latter expeditions he sent others to fight, himself remaining at Medina, and these were forty-seven in number.)

Got a clue yet?  If not then read Riyad us-Salaheen, Book 11, Chapter 234: Obligation of Jihad.  But surely it must be an anachronism, not applicable after the passage of 1386 years. Wrong again!

  • 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.

But surely those passages are subjet to ijtihad and can be re-interpreted for modern times and conditions. Wrong again!

  • Abu Dawud Book 23, Number 3455:

    Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar:

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

It is clear from this hadith that Jihad, offensive wars of conquest for the purpose of accruing spoils and expanding Dar al-Islam is the core sacrament of Islam; the essence of the ‘religion’.

Genocide

In the egregious matter of genocide: it is another intrinsic sacrament of Islam!

  • 8:67. It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allâh desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise.

  • Abu Dawud Book 38, Number 4390:

    Narrated Atiyyah al-Qurazi:
    I was among the captives of Banu Qurayzah. They (the Companions) examined us, and those who had begun to grow hair (pubes) were killed, and those who had not were not killed. I was among those who had not grown hair.

  • 47:4. So, when you meet (in fight Jihâd in Allâh’s Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on them, i.e. take them as captives). Thereafter (is the time) either for generosity (i.e. free them without ransom), or ransom (according to what benefits Islâm), until the war lays down its burden. Thus [you are ordered by Allâh to continue in carrying out Jihâd against the disbelievers till they embrace Islâm (i.e. are saved from the punishment in the Hell-fire) or at least come under your protection], but if it had been Allâh’s Will, He Himself could certainly have punished them (without you). But (He lets you fight), in order to test you, some with others. But those who are killed in the Way of Allâh, He will never let their deeds be lost,

  • 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.

When you kill a murderer in self-defense, you are not guilty of murder.  Neither is America guilty of genocide for nuking Hiroshima & Nagasaki.

Analencephalopathy Exposed


Ema Nymton said…

PackSmack,

How is your collection of Mexican paintings on black-velvet doing?

_________

“And don’t use your low opinion of Ben or myself to judge the qualifications of the doctrine; as Ben says, a creed is not disqualfied by ‘its heretics.’ Flee, Islam. It has nothing to offer you.”

So now you say you and Ali Ben Ali Mohammad Abdul are heretics? Ya, heretics from reality.

The issue is your and Ali Ben Ali Mohammad Abdul’s calling for the killing of unarmed and defenseless citizens of USA, Canada, and the rest of the world who have done you no harm. You and Ali Ben Ali Mohammad Abdul allow your unnatural fear and hatred of others to turn you into deeply soul-less individuals. You have no faith, no beliefs.

You follow of an extremely warped interpretation of the writings of Islam. You will not lie yourself to the truth.

“Get a clue, for Chrissake!” again with this blasphemy. Nothing you call for is for the sake of Jesus. Stop using JC’s name. Your murderous cries to kill people are insane and come from your fear, not faith.

  • “And don’t use your low opinion of Ben or myself to judge the qualifications of the doctrine; as Ben says, a creed is not disqualfied by ‘its heretics.’ Flee, Islam. It has nothing to offer you.”

    So now you say you and Ali Ben Ali Mohammad Abdul are heretics? Ya, heretics from reality.

Here we have an excellent example of Non sequitur, a token of combined idiocy & dishonesty.  Christians who blow up abortion clinics or shoot the butchers who staff them are heretics.  Muslims who advocate peace are heretics.

Unlike Ema, we are not Muslims, we curse & condemn Islam, exposing its evil core at every opportunity.  The reality is Islam’s nature: pure, unmitigated evil; mercenary & martial as I proved by the preponderance of evidence in the post to which Ema attached her idiotic comment.   Ema ignores objective factual reality because it does not comport with her prejudice.

  • The issue is your and Ali Ben Ali Mohammad Abdul’s calling for the killing of unarmed and defenseless citizens of USA, Canada, and the rest of the world who have done you no harm.

This excerpt is the perfect example of the straw man argument. We do not call for killing. We demand the eradication of Islam. Islam can be eradicated by killing Allah’s slaves, but no western government is willing to undertake that mission, which is the less humane alternative. Islam can be eradicated by emancipating those of Allah’s slaves who are not perfect zombies, who still retain some vestigial morality combined with killing the recalcitrant remnant of Mujahid zombies.  Unfortunately, no western government has the requisite balls & spine to accept that mission.  We are educating our fellow citizens in the hope that they will recognize the real, proximate & persistent existential threat posed by Islam and join us in demanding effective national defense against it.

We do not call for killing “unarmed and defenseless” Americans or Canadians. We disrespectfully demand the deportation of all Muslims and closing our borders to Muslims.

We disrespectfully demand recognition of the fatal fact that Islam is not a ‘religion of peace’; Islam is a war cult.  Islam’s mission is total world conquest, its tactics are genocide & terrorism.  The ‘original religion’ of Islam is Jihad. We disrespectfully demand recognition of the fatal fact that Islam declared and is prosecuting war against us.

We disrespectfully demand recognition of the fatal fact that Islam is inimical to liberty: Islam is slavery; Muslims are Allah’s slaves, purchased to kill and be killed fighting to make his word dominant.  We disrespectfully demand recognition of the fatal fact that Islam denys human equality, assigning women to the status of chattel and Jews & Christians to dhimmitude, less than second class citizenship; to be humiliated, tormented and subjugated. We disrespectfully demand recognition of the fatal fact that Islam denys the sanctity of our lives.

We disrespectfully demand recognition of the fatal fact that Islam is tyrannical;  inimical to representative government.

We disrespectfully demand recognition of the fatal fact that every Muslim is a threat to our lives & liberties because he is Allah’s slave, purchased to conquer us, commanded to kill, terrify, torment, humiliate, subjugate & enslave us. Allah’s commands are clear, contained in clear verses, which are to be believed and implemented.

In Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir, you can see Allah’s damnable commands, together with hadith which confirm them & the Qadi’s confirmation of their obvious meaning. Ibn Kathir spent his entire adult life studying and teaching that excrement so we don’t need to.  Read them and curse Islam.

In Umdat as-Salik, you can see the codification of Allah’s damnable imperatives in Islamic law O9.1 tells Muslims that offensive Jihad is a communal obligation binding upon them, to be carried out at least once in every year. O9.8 tells Muslims that the Caliph makes war upon Jews, Christians and Zoroastrians and cites the ayeh bearing the curse worthy command upon which it is founded. O9.9 tells Muslims that the Caliph makes war on all other peoples until they become Muslim.  There is a search engine in the upper document frame. Enter the letter & number in the search window and read the applicable law in context, then you will curse Islam if you have a soul.

If you think those commands are apocryphal, metaphorical, or limited chronologically or geographically, then you are an ignorant damn fool.  The Qur’an is  Allah’s perfected, immutable law which never expires. It is timeless, and Jihad continues until Judgment Day!

If you think that those commands do not mean exactly what they say, read the books of Jihad & Expedition in the various hadith collections; see what Moe did and said relative to Jihad; then, if you have a soul, you will curse Islam.

Besides being literalistic & absolutist, Islam is supremacist & triumphalist. Once again, Ibn Kathir is my witness.

  • You and Ali Ben Ali Mohammad Abdul allow your unnatural fear and hatred of others to turn you into deeply soul-less individuals. You have no faith, no beliefs.

Aversion to bloodthirsty barbarians is not unnatural. Hatred of Moe’s War Cult is well warranted by the facts of history as well as the cult’s damnable doctrines & practices.  Our own faith, beliefs & practices or lack thereof is completely irrelevant to any debate about Moe’s War Cult.

  • You follow of an extremely warped interpretation of the writings of Islam. You will not lie yourself to the truth.

You are the one who follows Moe, we reject his doctrines & practices, recognizing Satan’s deceptions.  Moe, as the Qur’an’s reciter, is the only person empowered to interpret it. Moe’s actions on the battlefield and related sayings, recorded in Islam’s oral tradition (hadith) confirm the obvious.  Allah’s damnable imperatives are clear, requiring no interpretation. Ibn Kathir confirms the obvious. Maududi ignores Jihad, detailing Jizya. Yusuf Ali emulates Maududi, Jalalayn & Ibn Abbas only translate the verse, offering no exegeses because the meaning is obvious. I do not interpret Islam, I rely on the face of the text, as confirmed by Islam’s own experts.

  • “Get a clue, for Chrissake!” again with this blasphemy. Nothing you call for is for the sake of Jesus. Stop using JC’s name. Your murderous cries to kill people are insane and come from your fear, not faith.

Once again, Ema erects and kicks a straw man.  It would be better if she did not defecate on the straw, the stench is horrible. Who blasphemes Jesus? Your beloved al-insal al-kamil, the perfect man.

Who is Jesus Christ? Is he the son of God?

  • 23:91. No son (or offspring or children) did Allâh beget, nor is there any ilâh (god) along with Him; (if there had been many gods), behold, each god would have taken away what he had created, and some would have tried to overcome others! Glorified be Allâh above all that they attribute to Him!

Is Jesus divine?

  • 3:61. Then whoever disputes with you concerning him [‘Iesa (Jesus)] after (all this) knowledge that has come to you, [i.e. ‘Iesa (Jesus)] being a slave of Allâh, and having no share in Divinity) say: (O Muhammad ) “Come, let us call our sons and your sons, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves – then we pray and invoke (sincerely) the Curse of Allâh upon those who lie.”

Was Jesus crucified, did he die; was he resurrected?

  • 4:157. And because of their saying (in boast), “We killed Messiah ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), the Messenger of Allâh,” – but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but the resemblance of ‘Iesa (Jesus) was put over another man (and they killed that man), and those who differ therein are full of doubts. They have no (certain) knowledge, they follow nothing but conjecture. For surely; they killed him not [i.e. ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary) ]:

    4:158. But Allâh raised him [‘Iesa (Jesus)] up (with his body and soul) unto Himself (and he is in the heavens). And Allâh is Ever All­Powerful, All­Wise.

Was Jesus a pacifist or a warmonger?

  • 61:14. O you who believe! Be you helpers (in the Cause) of Allâh as said ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), to Al­Hawârîûn (the disciples): “Who are my helpers (in the Cause) of Allâh?” Al­Hawârîeen (the disciples) said: “We are Allâh’s helpers” (i.e. we will strive in His Cause!). Then a group of the Children of Israel believed and a group disbelieved. So We gave power to those who believed against their enemies, and they became the uppermost.

Is Jesus benign & beneficent or a genocidal warmonger?

  • 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

Who is superior, with the closest relationship to & influence with God, Jesus or Moe?

  • Go to Moses, the slave to whom Allah spoke (directly) and gave him the Torah .’ So they will go to him and he will say, ‘I am not fit for this undertaking.’ and he will mention (his) killing a person who was not a killer, and so he will feel ashamed thereof before his Lord, and he will say, ‘Go to Jesus, Allah’s Slave, His Apostle and Allah’s Word and a Spirit coming from Him. Jesus will say, ‘I am not fit for this undertaking, go to Muhammad the Slave of Allah whose past and future sins were forgiven by Allah.’ So they will come to me and I will proceed till I will ask my Lord’s Permission and I will be given permission. When I see my Lord, I will fall down in Prostration and He will let me remain in that state as long as He wishes and then I will be addressed.’ (Muhammad!) Raise your head. Ask, and your request will be granted; say, and your saying will be listened to; intercede, and your intercession will be accepted.’  Sahih Bukhari Volume 6, Book 60, Number 3


  • Your murderous cries to kill people are insane and come from your fear, not faith.

I make no cries to kill, Moe did enough of that. I call for the extinction of Moe’s War Cult. Usher the Imams, Mullahs, Sheikhs, Mujahideen and others who will cling blindly to the damnable doctrines of Islam into Hell.  Emancipate those of Allah’s slaves who are not complete zombies.

I make this call because of the fatal fact, which I have proved with ample evidence from Islam’s own canon, that Islam is perpetually violent, a real, proximate & persistent threat to life & liberty.

Why?


This  is in response to a blog post at Monkey In the Middle.

Don’t ask Why; ask “What In Hell Will You Do About it?!”. The origin of Islamic terrorism is well known and easily accessible.

3:151.We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allah, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong­doers).

Allah sanctified terrorism.  Examine this quote from Ibn Kathir’s tafsir of this ayeh.

Allah next conveys the good news that He will put fear of the Muslims, and feelings of subordination to the Muslims in the hearts of their disbelieving enemies, because of their Kufr and Shirk.

Allah commanded terrorism in Surah Al-Anfal.

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.”

Does Allah mean what he said? Ibn Kathir has the answer.

Ibn Jarir commented that this Ayah commands, “O believers! Strike every limb and finger on the hands and feet of your (disbelieving) enemies.”

Did Allah cast terror?

33:26-27. And those of the people of the Scripture who backed them (the disbelievers) Allah 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.  And He caused you to inherit their lands, and their houses, and their riches, and a land which you had not trodden (before). And Allah is Able to do all things.

How did Allah cast terror?

59:13. Verily, you (believers in the Oneness of Allah – Islamic Monotheism) are more awful as a fear in their (Jews of Bani An-Nadir) breasts than Allah. That is because they are a people who comprehend not (the Majesty and Power of Allah).

Did Moe exemplify terrorism?

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)

Why attack Jews?

9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

Why: the damnable doctrines of Islam enshrined in Surat Al-Anfal & Al-Taubah, not poverty, ignorance, disease, illiteracy, repression, suppression nor occupation.  Allah’s Gd’d commands & Moe’s Gd’d example enshrined in Qur’an, hadith, sira & Sharia. Nothing else!

Since Islam is perfected, and his word can not be changed, Jihad, genocide & terror are immutable intrinsic sacraments of Islam; Islam can not be reformed, nor can  it be rendered anodyne.

Until Islam is eradicated from the earth, there will be neither peace nor security.  This is the fatal fact which none dares contemplate. What in Hell Will You Do about It? I will continue to expound these fatal facts as long as I live or until my fellow citizens join me in loudly, disrespectfully  & effectively demanding the eradication of the enemy which plagues civilization.

U.N. Interfaith Dialogue Conference


A Google Alert drew my attention to an Arab News article about an interfaith dialogue conference to be held at the U.N. November 12, 2008. The Conference is to be attended by about thirty world leaders. Leaders of 192 member states were invited.  The objective is strengthening peace through interfaith dialogue.  This conference results from a recommendation of the World Dialogue Conference held in July.

The Arab News article quotes King Abdullah as saying:

“It is regrettable that some of our sons have been tempted by Satan or the brothers of Satan,” […]Nothing can purify (Islam’s reputation) except for the extension of Muslims’ hands to their brothers in other religions.”

The article indicates that those remarks relate to Muslim terrorists.  He appears to imply that terrorism is a satanic, not a divine function and that it has sullied Islam’s reputation.

Our best clues about what to anticipate from the conference to be held Nov. 12 in New York come from King Abdullah’s opening remarks at the Madrid Conference and its official statement. The Saudi-US Relations Information Service provided the details.

From King Abdullah’s opening remarks at the Madrid Conference.

From the land of Revelation and land of Message, I welcome you with warmest greetings, beseeching Almighty Allah to give us the unrelenting determination, a power not afflicted by weakness and makes us from those whom Allah said about them:

“Nor can Goodness and Evil be equal. Repel (Evil) with what is better: then will he between whom and thee was hatred become as it were thy friend and intimate!”
(41: 34)

King Abdullah is praying for determination & power to persuade us to revert to Islam by proving that it is better than Christianity. Surah 41 was number 61  in order of revelation; Surah 8 is number 87 and Surah 9 is 113. Since the more violent surahs were revealed later, they abrogate their more tolerant predecessors. Persuasion was replaced by conquest [8:399:29].

Dear Brothers:

You gathered today to say to the world around us, with confidence which Allah bestowed upon us. We are the voice of justice and human moral values, and we are the voice of rational and just coexistence and dialogue, the voice of wisdom and admonition, and argumentation with the best way possible. As Allah says:

“Invite (all) to the way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious.” (16:125)


God willing we will do so.

In the next verse, Allah offers an alternative to dialogue.

16:126. And if you punish (your enemy, O you believers in the Oneness of Allâh), then punish them with the like of that with which you were afflicted. But if you endure patiently, verily, it is better for As-Sâbirin (the patient ones, etc.) .

Dear Brothers:

How great this nation is, how difficult the challenges it faces in a time where its enemies – extremists from its sons and others – join forces to change its fair approach. They are gathered with blatant aggressiveness to target the tolerance, justice and noble purposes of Islam.

King Abdullah describes Islam as tolerant, just and noble of purpose.  Is Islam tolerant?

  • 3:85. And whoever seeks a religion other than Islâm, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.
  • 98:6. Verily, those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islâm, the Qur’ân and Prophet Muhammad  from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikûn will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures.
  • 9:30. And the Jews say: ‘Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allâh, and the Christians say: Messiah is the son of Allâh. That is a saying from their mouths. They imitate the saying of the disbelievers of old. Allâh’s Curse be on them, how they are deluded away from the truth!

Is Islam’s purpose noble or is it mercenary?

  • 8:1. They ask you (O Muhammad) about the spoils of war. Say: “The spoils are for Allâh and the Messenger.” So fear Allâh and adjust all matters of difference among you, and obey Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad), if you are believers.
  • 8:41. And know that whatever of war-booty that you may gain, verily one-fifth (1/5th) of it is assigned to Allâh, and to the Messenger, and to the near relatives [of the Messenger (Muhammad)], (and also) the orphans, Al-Masâkin (the poor) and the wayfarer, if you have believed in Allâh and in that which We sent down to Our slave (Muhammad) on the Day of criterion (between right and wrong), the Day when the two forces met (the battle of Badr) – And Allâh is Able to do all things.
  • 8:67. It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allâh desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise.
  • 48:20. Allâh has promised you abundant spoils that you will capture, and He has hastened for you this, and He has restrained the hands of men from you, that it may be a sign for the believers, and that He may guide you to a Straight Path.
  • Muslim Book 019, Number 4327:

The spoils of war were not made lawful for any people before us, This is because Allah saw our weakness and humility and made them lawful for us.

For this reason, this invitation from your brother is to counter challenges of rigidity, ignorance, narrow-mindedness, and to make the world accommodate the concepts and the prospects of the kind message of Islam without enmity and antagonism.

Take a close look at that statement. Did you miss this? “to make the world accommodate the concepts and the prospects of the kind message of Islam without enmity and antagonism“.  In plain language, he means to deceive, disarm and confuse us as Islam conquers the entire world.

Dear Brothers:

Islam will remain fortified by the will of Allah Almighty and then with the conscience of Muslim scholars, thinkers and his followers.

Islam’s greatness founded the concepts of dialogue, and sets its milestones which are reflected in Allah saying: “Wert thou severe or harsh-hearted, they would have broken away from about thee.” (3: 159)

Caution: deception in progress! Allah’s slave has quoted his Master out of context.

3:156. O you who believe! Be not like those who disbelieve (hypocrites) and who say to their brethren when they travel through the earth or go out to fight: “If they had stayed with us, they would not have died or been killed,” so that Allâh may make it a cause of regret in their hearts. It is Allâh that gives life and causes death. And Allâh is All­Seer of what you do.

3:157. And if you are killed or die in the Way of Allâh, forgiveness and mercy from Allâh are far better than all that they amass (of worldly wealths, etc.).

3:158. And whether you die, or are killed, verily, unto Allâh you shall be gathered.

3:159. And by the Mercy of Allâh, you dealt with them gently. And had you been severe and harsh­hearted, they would have broken away from about you; so pass over (their faults), and ask (Allâh’s) Forgiveness for them; and consult them in the affairs. Then when you have taken a decision, put your trust in Allâh, certainly, Allâh loves those who put their trust (in Him).

3:160. If Allâh helps you, none can overcome you; and if He forsakes you, who is there after Him that can help you? And in Allâh (Alone) let believers put their trust.

Muhammad dealt gently with hypocrites who shirked Jihad, not with disbelievers.

Our hearts are full – praise to Allah – by faith, tolerance and love, which Allah, the Creator, ordered us to obtain.

Yes, dear brother, the way to the others is through shared values advocated by the divine messages, which were revealed by Allah the Almighty for the benefit of humanity to preserve their dignity and promote the ethical values and dealings which certainly are not in conformity with deception.

Ah, yes, how Islam preserves our dignity.

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.”

Our lives are not sacred to Muslims until we become Muslim. So much for dignity.

These values reject treason, alienate crime, combat terrorism, and despise lying. They lay the bases for good morals, honesty, truthfulness, justice, and enhance the concepts of family values and its cohesion and ethics, which are slowly diminishing at present and disintegrating ties, and where human beings are distancing themselves from their Lord and the teachings of their religion.

Islam’s values combat terrorism? Lets see how they combat it.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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),[…]

Dear Brothers:

From the vicinity of the Holy Mosque of Makkah, we begin with the will of Allah. From there, we will move in our dialogue with the others in confidence derived from our faith in Allah and then from knowledge sought from our tolerant religion. We will argue in ways that are best, what we agree upon we accept it in our hearts and what we disagree about we refer to the Sublime saying: “To you be your way, and to me mine.” (109:6)

Surah 109 was number 18 in order of sequence of revelation; it is abrogated by Surah 9, which was revealed after Muhammad had amassed an army and was prepared to launch his conquests.

From http://www.saudi-us-relations.org/articles/2008/special-reports/080719-madrid-conference.html
Abdullah Al-Turki, secretary-general of the MWL, spoke about the meeting at a press conference.

“The problem is created by the behavior and practices of their followers,”

It can’t be possible that terrorism flows from Allah’s word: 3:151, 8:12 & 33:26 cited above. It can’t be possible that Jihad conquests flow from Allah’s clear commands to fight, of course not; must be Satan’s temptations. Or is it poverty, ignorance & repression?

  • 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.

Visit the King Fahd Complex for Printing the Holy Qur’an and read the footnote to 2:190. What are the benefits of Jihad? What are the consequences when it is abandoned? While you are there, read all of Surahs 8 & 9. Muhammad, the founder of Islam, was rabble rousing & warmongering like Adolf Hitler.

At the conclusion of the Madrid Conference,  a statement was issued, setting fourth a list of ten principles. A few of them warrant critical examination.

1. Unity of humankind in the original creation and the equality among human beings irrespective of their colors, ethnic backgrounds and cultures.

The problem with that is that Islamic tradition holds Arabs superior to all other people and the Quraysh are be best of tribes.

4. The heavenly messages aim at realizing the obedience of people to their Creator and achieving happiness, justice, security and peace for humankind. These messages seek to enhance ways of understanding and cooperation among people despite differences in their origins, colors and languages. They also call for spreading virtue through wisdom and politeness, and rejecting extremism and terrorism.

Yes, Allah and his Messenger rejected extremism & terrorism, of course they did. So where do Surahs
Al-Anfal & Al-Taubah  come from?

5. Respecting heavenly religions, preserving their high status, condemning any insult to their symbols, and combating the exploitation of religion in the instigation of racial discrimination.

This is an obvious reference to the pending General Assembly resolution condemning “defamation of religions”. It is an overt attempt to impose Islam’s blasphemy law upon Kuffar.

6. Observing peace, honoring agreements and respecting unique traditions of peoples and their right to security, freedom and self-determination are the basis for building good relations among all people. Achieving this is a major objective of all religions and prominent cultures.

As Muhammad honored the treaty of Hudaibiya, breaking it after three years? As our rights to security and freedom are honored by 8:39 & 9:29?

7. The significance of religion and moral values and the need for humans to revert to their Creator in their fight against crime, corruption, drugs, and terrorism, and in preserving the institution of the family and protecting societies from deviant behaviors.

“Revert to their Creator” is an obvious reference to embracing Islam:  we are being told that only reverting to Islam will solve the listed problems.  There is no dialogue, the conversation is one way, as is that of the Ulema’s missive to Pope Benedict.  The bottom line: “Embrace Islam and you will be safe.” That is what Muhammad said in his extortion letters dispatched to various tribes & kingdoms before he invaded them.

The conference noted that terrorism is one of the most serious obstacles confronting dialogue and coexistence.

Terrorism is a universal phenomenon that requires unified international efforts to combat it in a serious, responsible and just way. This demands an international agreement on defining terrorism, addressing its root causes and achieving justice and stability in the world.

How is terrorism to be defined?  It must certainly include any and all attacks against Muslims, but it can not include attacks upon Jews. Why is that?  Because terrorism is an attack on innocent civilians and rebels against Allah are not innocent.  Attacks upon Jews, Christians, Zoroastrians, Sabeans, Pagans & Atheists are commanded by Allah. Those commands are reflected in Sharia. Turn to Reliance of the Traveler and read Book O, Chapter 9.

Based on the above, the conference has adopted the following recommendations:

• To reject theories that call for the clash of civilizations and cultures and to warn of the danger of campaigns seeking to deepen conflicts and destabilize peace and security.

You can not reject Surah Al-Taubah without committing apostasy, incurring the death penalty and subjecting Islam to Allah’s curse.

• To enhance common human values, to cooperate in their dissemination within societies and to solve the problems that hinder their achievement.

Code words for promoting the spread of Islam.

• To disseminate the culture of tolerance and understanding through dialogue so as to be a framework for international relations through holding conferences and symposia, as well as developing relevant cultural, educational and media programs.

“Culture of tolerance and understanding” means Islam. Dawa by institutional propaganda.

• To agree on international guidelines for dialogue among the followers of religions and cultures through which moral values and ethical principles, which are common denominators among such followers, so as to strengthen stability and achieve prosperity for all humans.

International guidlines are needed for dialogue?  Are there questions we must not ask; statements we must not make?

To work on urging governmental and non-governmental organizations to issue a document that stipulates respect for religions and their symbols, the prohibition of their denigration and the repudiation of those who commit such acts.

That is a clear & obvious reference to the pending U.N. General Assembly Resolution Res62/154 condemning “defamation of religions”. For my analysis of that malicious malarkey, refer to  U.N. Resolving to Silence Islamophobes. At the end of that blog post, you will find a list of links to related posts. See also: Stop Sharia!!!

Muhammad, Predator


Bukhari Ch 61 # 2756: …It is mentioned from Ibn ‘Umar from the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, “My provision has been placed under the shadow of my spear, and abasement and humility have been placed on the one who disobeys my command.

  • My provision has been placed under the shadow of my spear
    • How did Moe gain his income? By hunting wild game?
  • abasement and humility have been placed on the one who disobeys my command.
    • 6:124. And when there comes to them a sign (from Allâh) they say: “We shall not believe until we receive the like of that which the Messengers of Allâh had received.” Allâh knows best with whom to place His Message. Humiliation and disgrace from Allâh and a severe torment will overtake the criminals (polytheists, sinners, etc.) for that which they used to plot.
    • 3:112. Indignity is put over them wherever they may be, except when under a covenant (of protection) from Allâh, and from men; they have drawn on themselves the Wrath of Allâh, and destruction is put over them. This is because they disbelieved in the Ayât (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allâh and killed the Prophets without right. This is because they disobeyed (Allâh) and used to transgress beyond bounds (in Allâh’s disobedience, crimes and sins).

Sahih Bukhari Volume 3, Book 37, Number 495:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Whenever a dead man in debt was brought to Allah’s Apostle he would ask, “Has he left anything to repay his debt?” If he was informed that he had left something to repay his debts, he would offer his funeral prayer, otherwise he would tell the Muslims to offer their friend’s funeral prayer. When Allah made the Prophet wealthy through conquests, he said, “I am more rightful than other believers to be the guardian of the believers, so if a Muslim dies while in debt, I am responsible for the repayment of his debt, and whoever leaves wealth (after his death) it will belong to his heirs. ”

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), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.“…

Muslim Book 019, Number 4327:
The spoils of war were not made lawful for any people before us, This is because Allah saw our weakness and humility and made them lawful for us.

8:1. They ask you (O Muhammad) about the spoils of war. Say: “The spoils are for Allâh and the Messenger.” So fear Allâh and adjust all matters of difference among you, and obey Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad), if you are believers.

8:41.And know that whatever of war-booty that you may gain, verily one-fifth (1/5th) of it is assigned to Allâh, and to the Messenger, and to the near relatives [of the Messenger (Muhammad)], (and also) the orphans, Al-Masâkin (the poor) and the wayfarer, if you have believed in Allâh and in that which We sent down to Our slave (Muhammad) on the Day of criterion (between right and wrong), the Day when the two forces met (the battle of Badr) – And Allâh is Able to do all things.

8:67. It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allâh desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise.

  • You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives) This sums it up nicely. Allah knew Moe’s motivation: booty & ransom.

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.

48:20. Allâh has promised you abundant spoils that you will capture, and He has hastened for you this, and He has restrained the hands of men from you, that it may be a sign for the believers, and that He may guide you to a Straight Path.

Muhammad was not a Prophet, he was a pirate, preying upon the human race. This fatal fact is clear on the face of the Qur’an & Hadith which were passed down from mouth to ear and compiled by his friends, not his enemies.

Jihad: Conclusion


In Part 1, we compared ten translations of 2:216, which ordains fighting and makes it mandatory for Muslims. We consulted Ibn Kathir’s tafsir of that ayeh:  Jihad is made Obligatory, and learned that:

  1. Fighting is obligatory, not optional, Allah ordained it.
  2. Jihad is required from every person,
    1. to march forth
    2. to aid
    3. to support
  3. Fighting is difficult and an emotional burden; includes:
    1. being killed
    2. wounded
    3. striving against the enemy
    4. hardship of travel.
  4. Fighting is good for you; has benefits:
    1. followed by victory
    2. dominance over the enemy
    3. taking his:
      1. lands
      2. money
      3. wives & children.
  5. Refraining from fighting has negative consequences:
    1. dispossession
    2. dominance by the enemy.

In Part 2, we examined 8:39 and its tafsir, wherein we learned that Muslims are commanded to fight Pagans & disbelievers until there is no more resistance and only Allah is worshiped.

From 8:57 & 8:60, we got the first hints of the linkage between Jihad and terrorism. Defeated Kuffar are to be severely punished as a warning to others and maximum force is to be accrued to threaten them.

From 8:65, we learned of the urge to fight, and from 8:67 we learned of the mandate of genocide. and from Sahih Muslim19.4327, we learned that Moe obtained special dispensation to accrue spoils of war, relating to the title of the Surah.

In Part 3,  we explored 9:29, learning that Muslims are commanded to fight Jews & Christians until they are subjugated and pay extortion. We confirmed that by consulting Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir: The Order to fight People of the Scriptures until They give the Jizyah.

In 9:33 and its tafsir: Islam is the Religion That will dominate over all Other Religions, we learned that Islam must and will dominate all religions.

In 9:38…41 we learned the urgency & importance of marching forth in Jihad, how failure to do so will be punished.

In Part 4, we looked into Sharia, found in  The Reliance of the Traveller, discovering ample confirmation of the definition of Jihad, its declaration & execution of war against Pagans and Jews & Christians. We learned that Jihad must be performed annually and confirmed that fact from statements by Al-Ghazali & Al-Shafi’i.

In Part 5, we examined 9:111, learning the relationship between Allah and Muslims, which is master: slave. We discovered that Allah purchased the Muslims so that they fight in his cause, kill others and are killed.

From As-Saff 10-13, we learned what Muslims must do to be saved; to escape Hellfire and enter Paradise: they must participate in Jihad.

From Abu Dawud Book 14, Number 2526, we learned that: 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). Meaning, from 610 to the end of the world.

From Abu Dawud Book 23, Number 3455, we learned what will happen to Muslims if they abandon Jihad for productive pursuits: “Allah will make disgrace prevail over you, and will not withdraw it until you return to your original religion. ”  Whereby we know that Jihad and Islam are synonymous.

Jihad: Part2


In the first installment, we delved into Surah Al-Baqarah, examining 2:216 and its tafsir. We learned that Jihad is holy fighting in Allah’s cause, that it is physical fighting, risking injury & death and that it is mandatory, not optional.  But how is it affected by later Surahs? Was it abrogated?   We’ll look to the next Surah, Al-Anfal, for part of the answer.

The name: Al-Anfal, is instructive. It means “the spoils”. That’s right, war booty. Why would Allah’s book, the scripture of the religion of peace, have a chapter named spoils? Perhaps because Jihad is mandatory in Islam.  Jihad, against whom?
In Surah Al-Anfal, Jihad is against pagans, particularly the Meccans. Before jumping for joy, believing the scope & term of the command to be limited, consider the translator’s commentary to 8:39, which is appended.

8:38. Say to those who have disbelieved, if they cease (from disbelief) their past will be forgiven. But if they return (thereto), then the examples of those (punished) before them have already preceded (as a warning).

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.

(V.8:39) It is mentioned by some of the Islamic religious scholars that, that will be at the
time when Ise (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)  will descend on the earth, and
he will not accept any other religion except Islam ” The True Religion of Allah ” Islamic
monotheism).(V.8:39) A) See the footnote of (\/.2:193).[That note quotes one of the hadith cited by Ibn Kathir below.]

  • What are Muslims commanded to do? fight them
  • Who are they? those who have disbelieved
  • What are the terminal conditions?
    • no more disbelief
    • no more polytheism
    • religion for Allah alone.

Does this ayeh really mean what it says?

Allah then commanded fighting the disbelievers when He said:(…until there is no more Fitnah) meaning, Shirk. This is the opinion of Ibn `Abbas, Abu Al-`Aliyah, Mujahid, Al-Hasan, Qatadah, Ar-Rabi`, Muqatil bin Hayyan, As-Suddi and Zayd bin Aslam.

Allah’s statement:

(…and the religion (all and every kind of worship) is for Allah (Alone).) means, `So that the religion of Allah becomes dominant above all other religions.‘ It is reported in the Two Sahihs that Abu Musa Al-Ash`ari said: “The Prophet was asked, `O Allah’s Messenger! A man fights out of bravery, and another fights to show off, which of them fights in the cause of Allah’ The Prophet said:

(He who fights so that Allah’s Word is superior, then he fights in Allah’s cause.) In addition, it is reported in the Two Sahihs: (I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight the people until they proclaim, `None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’. Whoever said it, then he will save his life and property from me, except for cases of the law, and their account will be with Allah.)… The Order to fight until there is no more Fitnah

In confirming what we already knew, Ibn Kathir cited the two ahadith I planned to use,  I linked to them in line so that you can verify them.

Moe’s statement that he was ordered to fight the people until they become Muslim, that they thereby save their lives and property from him, clearly confirms the order to fight contained in 8:39.

That is not the end of the matter for Al-Anfal.

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 Allah and your enemy, and others besides whom, you may not know but whom Allah does know. And whatever you shall spend in the Cause of Allah shall be repaid unto you, and you shall not be treated unjustly.

8:65O Prophet (Muhammad)! Urge the believers to fight. If there are twenty steadfast persons amongst you, they will overcome two hundred, and if there be a hundred steadfast persons they will overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they (the disbelievers) are people who do not understand.

8:67. It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allâh desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise.

8:69. So enjoy what you have gotten of booty in war, lawful and good, and be afraid of Allâh. Certainly, Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

8:57 & 8:60 are tokens of terrorism: punishing defeated Kuffar so as to admonish others and building up as much force as possible to threaten other potential victims. 8:65 is an obvious example of warmongering. 8:67 makes great slaughter a prerequisite for admission to Paradise; it sanctifies genocide. 8:69, along with 8:1 & 8:41, shows us what the title of this Surah is all about.  They find ample reinforcement in this hadith:

Sahih Muslim Book 019, Number 4327:
The spoils of war were not made lawful for any people before us, This is because Allah saw our weakness and humility and made them lawful for us.

Next we turn to Surah Al-Taubah, next to last in order of revelation, to see if it confirms or abrogates our present discoveries.
