Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Jihad Debate: Is it Imperialism or Self-Improvement?


Davi Barker, writing at Patheos, concentrates on attempting to discredit Pamela Geller
with adhominem attacks while projecting that tactic onto her.

  • “Anti-Muslim
    demagogue,
    Pam
    Geller

    • “blows
      a wad of cash”

      • “on
        an ad (hominem) campaign against 
        Islam,”
      • “critical
        of the boogeyman Muslims she imagines under her bed”

Preferring to debate the issue rather than
personalities and process, I left the following comment, which was not
published.  Since I am writing on my own blog and a few friendly
blogs where I can use html and won’t be censored, I am adding
hyperlinks to my sources so that readers can verify the quotes and
examine their context.

Adhominem attack is against the debater
not her facts: you labeled Geller “bigot”.

You denounce ‘violent extremists’; do you denounce Muhammad bin
Abdullah,
who dictated & dispatched extortion letters1 demanding Jizya, then
followed up with his army, slaughtering, dispossessing and enslaving2
those who refused to submit ?  Muhammad said that he was “raised
for jihad and not for tillage”3, “sent with a sword to see that
none but
Allah is worshiped4
and “commanded to fight”5 with men.  He
also said that he was “made victorious with terror”6
but you can not
denounce him as a terrorist.

Who is better qualified to define Jihad: you or two who translated the
Qur’an?  “Al-Jihâd
(holy fighting) in Allâh’s Cause
” [Hilali/Khan
2:190]7.
Who is better qualified to define Jihad: you or the
Shafi’i school of Islamic law?

Jihad
means to war against non-Muslims
,

and is etymologically derived from the word

mujahada, signifying warfare to establish the

religion.” ” [The Reliance of the Traveller, Book O9.0,  p. 599]8

Who said this: “(This is also a part of the war booty you earned.
Verily, I have no share in it, except my own share, the fifth
designated to me. Even that fifth will be given to you (indicating the
Prophet’s generosity). Therefore, surrender even the needle and the
thread, and whatever is bigger or smaller than that (from the war
spoils). Do not cheat with any of it, for stealing from the war booty
before its distribution is Fire and a shame on its people in this life
and the Hereafter. Perform
Jihad against the people in Allah’s cause,
whether they are near or far
, and do not fear the blame of the
blamers,
as long as you are in Allah’s cause. Establish Allah’s rules while in
your area and while traveling. Perform Jihad in Allah’s cause, for
Jihad
is a tremendous door leading to Paradise.
Through it, Allah
saves
(one) from sadness and grief.)” 9 ?

Who said this: “(The greatest of all things is Islam, its pillars are
the prayers and its
pinnacle is Jihad for the sake of
Allah
.)”10?
Who knows better what Jihad is, you or the
founder of Islam?

If Jihad means Jihad an Nafs: struggle against ego
& temptation, why are the various books of Jihad in hadith
collections predominantly about raids & conquests?

Terrorism is an Intrinsic Sacrament of Islam


A U.N. document entitled “Draft Decision on a panel on human rights of victims of terrorism” contains an egregiously obnoxious lie, which is derived from standard boilerplate from the “combating defamation of Islam” resolutions.

Reaffirming  that terrorism cannot and should not be associated with any religion, nationality, civilization
or othnic group. (PP11 GA RES 62/ 169)

Is there some factual basis for asserting that terrorism cannot be associated with Islam?  Is there some factual basis for asserting that terrorism should not be associated with Islam?    I challenge anyone to post a comment containing whatever relevant, verifiable evidence they may have to prove those  most obnoxious assertions.

Terrorism is associated with Islam for good reasons.

  • The attacks on
    • Bali
    • Beslan
    • London
    • Madrid
    • New York
      • were perpetrated by Muslims, in Allah’s name.
  • Allah said that he would cast terror.
  • Allah ordered Muslims to build a powerful army to “strike terror”.
  • Allah “cast terror” so that the Muslims captured and killed their intended victims, plundering their wealth.
  • Moe bragged about being “made victorious” by terror.

The fact is clear on the face of  Islam’s canonical texts.

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. If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember.

8:60. Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of God and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom God doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of God, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly.

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 ye [are] stronger [than they], by reason of the terror [cast] into their breasts from God. This, because they [are] not people of prudence.

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.
2. The earth has been made for me (and for my followers) a place for praying and a thing to perform Tayammum, therefore anyone of my followers can pray wherever the time of a prayer is due.
3. The booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me.
4. I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of Resurrection).
5. Every Prophet used to be sent to his nation only but I have been sent to all mankind.

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), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.” Abu Huraira added: Allah’s Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).

The association is clear, direct and unmistakable; it is not susceptible to misinterpretation.  Why do the curse worthy fools of the U.N.  continue to reaffirm an easily refuted lie?  They are convinced that we are stupid, ignorant, gullible fools who will believe any lie if it is repeated with sufficient frequency and ‘authority’.
