The Qur’an And Unending, Obligatory War Against The Non-Muslim World

11/28/2014 1 comment

Read the Old Testament and it becomes apparent that it describes much violence and war that took place in the past between Israel and those who sought to oppress and destroy the Hebrew children. Unlike the Bible, however, the Qur’an doesn’t simply describe violence and wars. It calls upon all followers to continue down the same path today …

Qur’an Sura 4:95, “Not equal are those believers [Muslims] who sit at home and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit at home …”

Qur’an Sura 8:39, “And fight with them [non-Muslims] until … religion should be only for Allah …”

Qur’an Sura 4:76, “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah …”

Qur’an Sura 4:76, “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah …”

By Raymond Ibrahim, Gatestone Institute – “News recently emerged that Russia was banning key Islamic scriptures — including Sahih Bukhari — on the charge that they promote ‘exclusivity [supremacism] of one of the world’s religions,’ namely Islam; or, in the words of a senior assistant to the prosecutor of Tatarstan Ruslan Galliev, ‘a militant Islam’ which ‘arouses ethnic, religious enmity.’

If Sahih Bukhari, a nine-volume hadith collection compiled in the 9th century and seen by Sunni Muslims as second in importance only to the Koran itself is being banned for inciting hostility, where does that leave the Koran?

After all, if Sahih Bukhari contains pro-terrorism statements attributed to the prophet of Islam and calls to kill Muslims who leave Islam, the Koran, Islam’s number one holy book itself is full of intolerance and calls for violence against non-believers. A tiny sampling of proclamations from Allah follows:

  • ‘I will cast terror into the hearts of the unbelievers, so strike [them] upon the necks [behead them] and strike from them every fingertip’’ (Koran 8:12).
  • ‘Fight those among the People of the Book [Christians and Jews] who do not believe in Allah nor the Last Day, who do not forbid what Allah and His Messenger have forbidden, and who do not embrace the religion of truth [Islam], until they pay the jizya with willing submissiveness and feel themselves utterly subdued’ (Koran 9:29).
  • ‘Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever you find them — seize them, besiege them, and make ready to ambush them!’ (Koran 9:5).
  • ‘Fighting has been enjoined upon you [Muslims] while it is hateful to you’ (2:216).

That Islam’s core texts incite violence and intolerance has many ramifications, for those willing to go down this path of logic.

For example, as I argued more fully here, although Muslims around the world, especially in the guise of the 57-member state Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), continue to push for the enforcement of ‘religious defamation’ laws in the international arena, one great irony is lost, especially on Muslims: if such laws would ban movies and cartoons that defame Islam, they would also, by logical extension, need to ban the religion of Islam itself — the only religion whose core texts actively defame other religions.

Consider what the word ‘defamation’ means: ‘to blacken another’s reputation’ and ‘false or unjustified injury of the good reputation of another, as by slander or libel,’ are typical dictionary definitions.

What, then, do we do with Islam’s core religious texts — not just Sahih Bukhari but the Koran itself, which slanders, denigrates and blackens the reputation of other religions?

Consider Christianity alone: Koran 5:73 declares that ‘Infidels are they who say God [or ‘Allah’] is one of three,’ a reference to the Christian Trinity; Koran 5:72 says ‘Infidels are they who say God is the Christ, [Jesus] son of Mary’; and Koran 9:30 complains that ‘the Christians say the Christ is the son of God … may Allah’s curse be upon them!’

Surely such verses defame the Christian religion and its central tenets — not to mention create hostility towards its practitioners.

In short, the argument that some Islamic books should be banned on grounds that they incite segregation and violence is applicable to the Koran itself, which Read more…

Nigeria: Massive Deaths And Injuries Reported After “Religion Of Peace” Killers Attack Mosque For Resisting Terrorism

11/28/2014 1 comment

Yet again we have more body parts and chunks of flesh spreading the message of Islam as those still with legs to run are bathed in bullets, all because Boko Haram’s feelings were hurt by a few “corrupt” things being disseminated by the leader of Kano’s Grand Mosque. The mosque’s Emir had reportedly encouraged others to take up arms against Boko Haram’s purveyors of death and destruction. But any call to fight against terrorism was evidently akin to fighting against “Allah” and his messenger of misery. And for many unfortunate attendees, their own Qur’an had a thing or two to say about that …

Hadith, Bukhari 2977, “I have been made victorious with terror” – The “Prophet” Of Islam, Mohammed

Qur’an Sura 5:33a, “Surely the only recompense of the ones who war against Allah and His Messenger and diligently endeavor to do corruption in the earth, is that they should be all massacred or crucified, or that their hands and legs should be cut asunder alternately or that they should be exiled from the land …” [Or, in the 21st century, blown to bits and pieces]

Qur’an Sura 48:29, “Mohammed is [Allah’s] apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another.”

Sky News – “At least 92 people are feared dead and scores more injured after gunmen and suicide bombers attacked a mosque in northern Nigeria.

Nigerian official Captain Ikechukwu Eze said the blasts occurred at the main mosque in Nigeria’s second-largest city, Kano.

Reuters also reported that gunmen opened fire on worshippers in the attack which analysts said bore the hallmarks of one carried out by Islamist militant group Boko Haram.

Hundreds had been gathering to listen to a sermon from the city’s chief imam and prayers had got under way at around 2pm, local time.

Witness Aminu Abdullahi said: ‘Two bombs exploded, one after the other, in the premises of the Grand Mosque seconds after the prayers had started.’

He said another bomb went off nearby, but reports on the actual number of blasts differed.

The mosque’s leader is the Emir of Kano, the second highest Islamic authority in the country. Reports also varied as to whether he was present at the time.

The Emir, who is also known as Muhammad Sanusi II, said last week at the mosque that people in the north of Nigeria should take up arms against Boko Haram.

The Islamist organisation has been fighting a guerilla war to bring about a hardline Islamic state since 2009.

Boko Haram was responsible for the kidnap of more than 200 teenage girls from a school in the northern town of Chibok in April this year.

Meanwhile, elsewhere in the country, more than 1.5 million Nigerians displaced by Boko Haram have been flocking to refugee camps across the country’s northeast, where facilities are overcrowded and there is a shortage of supplies.” Source – Sky News.

Missouri: Two Converts To Islam Charged With Plotting To Blow Up Gateway Arch, Kill Prosecutor And Ferguson Police Chief

After all, the rule for every radical is to never let a serious crisis go to waste …

“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” – Rahm Emmanuel, former White House Chief of Staff for Barack Obama, referring to Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals

By Christine Byers, St. Louis Post Dispatch – “Two men indicted last week on federal weapons charges allegedly had plans to bomb the Gateway Arch — and to kill St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch and Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson — the Post-Dispatch has learned.

Sources close to the investigation were uncertain whether the men had the capability to carry out the plans, although the two allegedly did buy what they thought was a pipe bomb in an undercover law enforcement sting.

The men wanted to acquire two more bombs, the sources said, but could not afford to do it until one suspect’s girlfriend’s Electronic Benefit Transfer card was replenished.

An indictment, with no mention of bombs or killings, was returned in federal court here Nov. 19 and unsealed Fridayupon the arrest of Brandon Orlando Baldwin and Olajuwon Ali Davis. Their addresses and Baldwin’s age were not available; Davis is 22.

The arrest came three days before McCulloch revealed that a grand jury would not indict Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson in the controversial killing of Michael Brown. The announcement triggered looting and multiple arsons in Ferguson.

The charges say that between Nov. 1 and Nov. 13, at the Cabela’s store in Hazelwood, Baldwin claimed to be buying two Hi-Point .45-caliber pistols for himself when they were really for another person. Brandon also is known as Brandon Muhammad, according to court documents, and Davis now goes by the last name Ali, his attorney said. Each faces a charge of aiding and abetting the making of a false written statement made in connection with a firearms purchase.

The sources said additional charges, reflecting the plot, were expected to be filed. They said Davis was considered the leader of the plot, which police documented on hidden video.” Read more.

ISIS Supports Ferguson Protesters, Vows To Send Over ‘Soldiers That Don’t Sleep, Whose Drink Is Blood, And Their Play Is Carnage’ – “British jihadis fighting for the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq have pledged to send militants to fight police in the riot-hit American city of Ferguson, Missouri – providing the protesters embrace Islam… Using the slogan ‘From #IS 2 Ferguson’, Birmingham-born jihadi Junaid Hussain, 20 – who has adopted the nom de guerre Abu Hussain al-Britani – this morning tweeted a photograph of a hand-written letter urging the Ferguson rioters to ‘reject corrupt man-made laws like democracy’ and declare their allegiance to ISIS’ leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.” Read more.

HAMAS Group: ‘We Muslims Are Behind Ferguson Race Riots, Help Us Mobilize Michael Brown Movement’ – “Last week, I told you that the HAMAS front group and unindicted co-conspirator in HAMAS terrorism, CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations), was working overtime to insert itself into the violent CAIR race riots in order to pimp Islam on inner city Blacks (and I told you about the ISIS flags on the scene, days before everyone else wrote about it). Now, HAMAS CAIR wants you and the rest of the world to know that it is behind the violent race riots and looting that have been going on in Ferguson, Missouri for nearly two weeks.” Read more.

“They May Go After Christians”: US Reportedly “Alarmed” By The Rate At Which ISIS Is Spreading Into Northern Africa

The article seems to suggest that nobody in the Obama Administration saw it coming, but the fact of the matter is they did. They simply chose to do nothing about it

Daniel 11:43, “He will gain control of the treasures of gold and silver and all the riches of Egypt, with the Libyans and Nubians [Sudan] in submission.”

Qur’an Sura 18:26, “[Allah] maketh none to share in his government.”

Qur’an Sura 18:26, “[Allah] maketh none to share in his government.”

By Guy Taylor, The Washington Times – “In its war to create a caliphate across Syria and Iraq, the Islamic State is opening a front in North Africa, where affiliated militants are wreaking havoc in eastern Libya and Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula — presenting a complex challenge for Washington and its allies in the region.

Through its savvy use of social media and slick production of recruitment videos, the Islamic State — also known by the acronyms ISIS and ISIL — is attracting a growing number of individual jihadis to its harsh interpretation of Islamic, or Shariah, law.

‘ISIL’s stated goal of expanding its caliphate and its adherence to a strict form of Shariah has definitely resonated with a collection of extremists across North Africa, who appear to be mimicking ISIL’s rhetoric and brutality,’ said a U.S. intelligence official who spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to discuss security issues freely.

What remains to be seen is whether the region will face a surge of unbridled Islamic State-style violence, including beheadings. Counterterrorism analysts say there is little doubt of that — especially in Libya, where the government is under threat of being overrun by militants, and in Egypt, where the military has struggled to contain Sinai extremists for years.

‘I don’t think there’s any doubt that the Islamic State is going to commit and claim responsibility for an increasing number of attacks in North Africa, both in Libya and in the Sinai during the year ahead,’ said Thomas Joscelyn, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies in Washington.

‘But it’s not yet clear how it’s going to play out,’ Mr. Joscelyn said. ‘If they go in the direction of more horror killings the way the Islamic State is doing in Syria and Iraq, they may go after Christians and others, and that could end up triggering sectarian violence in Egypt. But that remains to be seen.’

The U.S. intelligence community regards the Islamic State as the world’s most violent terrorist organization, and officials say its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, sees himself as a kind of Osama bin Laden figure.” Read more.

Islamic Scholar Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi: “Islam wishes to destroy all States and Governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and programme of Islam regardless of the country or the Nation that rules it. Islam requires the earth – not just a portion – but the whole planet.”

Flashback: Report: Chilling Map Reveals ISIS 5-Year Plan For Caliphate Expansion Upon The Earth – “The jihadists terrorists of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) — now trying to rebrand as simply the ‘Islamic State’ — have released a new map that outlines the territory they aspire to conquer within the next five years. That territory spans from Morocco and Spain out to Sri Lanka and the border of China. The map, which surfaced on Twitter and has begun to be distributed widely throughout social media, paints in black every territory ISIS wishes to incorporate into the newly announced caliphate, which currently only spans, according to ISIS officials, throughout Syria (‘al-Sham’) and Iraq. The Daily Mail notes that the westernmost territory of the map, labeled ‘Maghreb,’ is the Western Sahara, including Mali, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, and a host of other nations.” Read more.
