Islam: Religion of peace.

Reliance of the Traveller, Book O.9.0

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.)

Tafsir

Jihad means to make war on us. Damn! We thought it was striving against ego & temptation. We weren’t thinking clearly, were we?

“Warfare to establish the religion”? But Islam wasn’t spread by the sword, was it. Only damn fools believe that.

Take a cold, clear second look at Islamic law defining Jihad:

  • Jihad means to war against non-Muslims
  • signifying warfare to establish the religion.

Islamic law cites the scriptural basis for offensive Jihad, then it cites Moe’s egregious statements about it.

Compare the highlighted clauses above to Hilali & Khan’s footnote to 2:190.

V. 2:190) Al-Jihad (holy fighting) ln AlIah’s Cause (with full force of numbers
and weaponry) is given the utmost importance in Islam and is one of its pillars
(on
which it stands). By Jihad Islam is established, Allah’s Word is made superior, (His
Word belng La Haha illallah which means none has the right to be worshipped but
Allah), and His Religion (Islam) is propagated. By abandoning Jihad (may Allah
protect us from that) Islam is destroyed and the Muslims fall into an inferior
position; their honour is lost, their lands are stolen, their rule and authority vanish.

Jihad is an obligatory duty In Islam on every Muslim, and he who tries to escape
from this duty, or does not in his innermost heart wish to fulfil this duty, dies with
one of the qualities of a hypocrite.
Narrated Abdullah bin Masud I asked Allah’s Messenger, ‘O Allah’s Messenger!
what is th e best deed?’ He replied, “To offer the Salat (prayers) at their early fixed
stated times.’ I asked, ‘What is next ln goodness?” He replied, ‘To be good and
dutlful to your parents.” I further asked, ‘What is next in goodness?’ He replied,
‘To participate in Jihad in Allaha’s Cause.’ I did not ask AIIAh’s Messenger anymore
and if l had asked him more. he would have told me more. (Sahi Al-Bukhari VoI.4. Hadith N¤.41).

The clauses I have emphasized should make the matter crystal clear, beyond any doubt. The translators of the Noble Qur’an are obviously in agreement with Sharia.

  • Jihad means to war against non-Muslims
  • signifying warfare to establish the religion.
  • Al-Jihad (holy fighting) ln AlIah’s Cause
  • By Jihad Islam is established
  • Allah’s Word is made superior
  • and His Religion (Islam) is propagated

The American Democrat Party: Culture of Death

I have been saying this for years and folks just laughed and some just laughed it off. Some said that this too shall pass. To me, those that laughed for whatever reason are still in a state of insanity due to their purposeful neglect.

Recently, J.R. Dunn wrote a column entitled, “Democide“. In that piece, in part:

“Over the past fifty years, something on the order of a half-million Americans have been killed by liberal policies.”

That line appears to have gotten to people, as it should. Among the many welcome comments on my piece on Christopher Buckley, a number both on AT and elsewhere referred to that statement — my contention that liberalism is not only a failed ideology, but a deadly one, an ideology that kills, and kills in large numbers. Many of the comments called it “incredible”, “unbelievable” and “shocking”.

That’s in no way difficult to understand. Achieving awareness of the lethal nature of liberalism’s excesses is much the same as coming to realize that your friendly, familiar neighborhood is actually overrun by vampires. […]

Most of you that know me know that I am undertaking a project that proves the above beyond a reasonable doubt. The proponents of American Liberalism, no matter their stature in life and position are directly responsible for not only killing millions dying of Malaria, they have murdered entire generations of “voters”…they died of abortion. They are directly responsible for the deaths and wounding of American and Allied Forces in several wars and Police Actions, Iraq and Afghanistan being in the present tense.

I loathe them all. They disgust me. They cannot be trusted. Their ideologies have been attempted in many Nations and those principles of which they stand resulted in entire populations to be enslaved to the governments under which they lived and live and those governments have failed time and time again. Their system does not work. Period. It never has and it never will. Slavery – that is what the Democrat Party of the USA is all about. A historical search will bear that out, especially before, during and after the American Civil War.

But, that won’t stop them. It is all about Power to these people. Nothing else matters. If our Troops are killed, maimed or wounded, they could care less. I have seen it first hand. If they can enslave the American Population, the more Power they will have.

Barack Obama is the Shining Example of the Culture of Death. He supports infanticide, no matter how he tries to spin it. He voted FOR infanticide and that is a matter of public record. He and his Goons can deny it all they want to…facts are facts and the record is the record. SPIN THAT.

The Vatican has declared the American Democrat Party as the Culture of Death. Joe Biden has been practically excommunicated from The Church. Nancy Pelosi was heavily and handily chastised by her Archbishop over her rewriting Vatican principles and history. Nancy now knows that history didn’t start the day she was hatched.

The American Democrat Party is directly responsible for the MILLIONS of deaths following their cowardly retreat from Vietnam. They are directly responsible for American deaths in Vietnam. That is a historical fact. They can deny all they want to and spin as much as they want to but I bet they have a hard time explaining it all when the demons come.

[…] It will come as no news to readers of this site that liberal policies tend to fail. But some of them fail catastrophically. And when they do, they kill. They kill in large numbers. They have been killing for decades, and they will continue to kill for as long as we allow it.

The process is called democide, the murder of a populace by its own government. It can occur through malice, or indifference, or through incompetence. Almost always, it is instigated by an ideology — fascism, Nazism, communism… and liberalism. According to Dr. R.J. Rummel, the sole scholar of democide (you’d think there would be droves of researchers working on such a critical topic — but you’d be wrong), 262 million people have died by such means over the past century. Against that number, a half-million is a bagatelle, a drop in the bucket.

But it happened in our country. It happened in America. […]

We can stop it and we can change things but we have to actually ACT and DO something and hopefully, we do it via the ballot box and getting our Vertical Alignment all squared away with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

The DNC Rift Tsunami

The Democrat Party is falling apart but one would not know that reading the Lame Stream Media. However, those of us that comprise the Main Street Media are hearing a different song. It is the Death Knell Dirge of the DNC.

Barack Hussein Obama did Hillary wrong and she isn’t about to forget or forgive, no matter the public appearances of both Hillary and Bill and their subsequent rhetoric in support of Obama. If anyone truly believes that the Clinton’s are supporting Obama, they are certainly lost in space.

When I was building the blog for the Stop Her Now Campaign, called the Hot Rodham Blog, we spent hours and hours and hours researching the Clinton Clan and we got to know them very well. They are not about to forgive or forget the railroading they received from the DNC leadership, George Soros or Barack Hussein Obama. Not by a long shot. The Democrat Convention was a sure-fire give-away.

Please recall that when Hillary saw that she was going to walk away from the Convention with the nomination, The Big Nod, she realized what that would mean. I have to give her credit. She quickly went to a microphone and asked to not have the usual voting procedures, thus bypassing what was to come. When reviewing the videos, one can hear a vast majority booing her decision. Nancy Pelosi was quick to ask for those that approve and not once did she allow for those that did not approve to have their say. That is a typical maneuver of the Party of Intolerance…if you disagree, you have no say.

Sound familiar?

We saw decades of Identity Politics come crashing down and the rift is growing. However, don’t believe me. Believe this; from the American Thinker, Steven M. Warshawsky brings us the following: Signs Pointing To A McCain Victory

[…] This is the “narrative” that the mainstream media has been imposing on this year’s presidential campaign almost from the start. Remember how quickly the MSM jumped off the Hillary Clinton bandwagon and onto Obama’s? Remember how annoyed and angry they became as Hillary refused to concede the nomination? The MSM decided that electing the nation’s first black, socialist, anti-American president was politically and historically more important (and, for them, more exciting) than electing the nation’s first female, socialist, patriotic president. And they are doing everything they can to achieve this goal.

Well, there is another story out there that the MSM refuses to address. A huge story. One that could, and I think will, significantly affect the outcome of this race. I’m referring to the widespread phenomenon of registered Democrats openly supporting John McCain. There are numerous “Democrats for McCain” type organizations. There are numerous websites and blogs written by Democrats touting McCain’s candidacy. There are pro-McCain grassroots efforts being led by Democrats. And we all know friends or relatives who are Democrats, who voted for John Kerry in 2004, and who are no fans of President Bush – but who are going to vote for John McCain this year.

Yet, surprise surprise, the mainstream media is not talking about these voters, not talking about the real rift that is occurring within the ranks of the Democratic Party. Needless to say, if a similar rift were occurring in the Republican Party, it would be treated as the major story that it is. (Indeed, as such stories about the political fault lines in the Republican Party have been treated in the recent past.) […]

By now, all we have been hearing of late is the “rift” between McCain and Palin. This is near laughable but mostly ignorant. The morphing of the stories are woefully skewed with the wishful thinking more than obvious. Just remember, that which happens to or is caused by the DNC that can be “bad news” is quickly shrugged off somewhere else. It is their trademark.

Another thing that the pollsters are “forgetting” is the Joe The Plumber voters. Another aspect is the NRA. Another aspect is the Angry White Man. Most everyone with half a brain can see the race baiting going on by Barack in that 90 to 95 percent of the “African-Americans” are voting for Barack BECAUSE he is black and ONLY because he is black, even though he is NEITHER black or white. He is a fraud and come election day, the fraud will not be victorious.

If there is any election racism in this nation it is on the part of the black community as stirred up by Obama, Sharpton and Jackson. That much is plainly obvious.

More at Memeorandum…the laughs I got from there are truly spirit lifting…

Shock and Awe: The Good People

If you look back over the last several articles posted here at Radarsite they all have one thing in common: they are all expressing the author’s shock and awe. Shock that we can actually be this close to real disaster; and awe at the enormity of the forces pushes us toward this end. Nothing, I repeat, nothing, that we can do or say seems capable of altering this fateful plunge.

We, all of us writers and bloggers, have tried absolutely everything. We have enumerated scandal after scandal, all to no avail. We have tried but we can’t do it. We cannot break out of this iron shell of denial, deceit and disinformation. It has become all too apparent now that we, the writers, are not going to be able to stop this rush to national ruin. Our only hope now lies with the people. All those regular people out there who may have never read a political blog or studied the Koran. All those people whose only access to the news and opinion has come from their regular in-the-tank-leftist media. These are the only people who can save us now. These good everyday people are our very last hope.

But thankfully, there is some precedent for this hope in our shared history. There have indeed been times when the people have spoken and the polls and the pundits were monumentally discredited and humiliated. It can happen. And it can happen again if these American voters sense something amiss, something in a candidate that just doesn’t add up, some vague feelings of distrust or unarticulated suspicion that give them just enough pause to hold back that precious vote.

There is an unknown and unquantifiable element in the American psyche perhaps best characterized as good old-fashioned Yankee common sense. The pundits of course despise this notion. Because if it is true, it negates all of their profound pronouncements and their erudite predictions. It brings into question everything they have built their reputations on.

As much as I loathe the thought of it, I predict that nothing that any writer could possibly come out with in this next week will make a damn bit of difference to those poll numbers. Nothing. No matter how terrible or bizarre.

But on that one day, that one particular Tuesday, the American people will speak and what they might actually say could still shock the world. – rg
