Its Shari’ah, Stupid #9

This is the ninth installment of a series on offensive Jihad in Fiqh.

Ibn Taymiyya, d. 1328, hanbali. Al-Siyasa al-Shariyya, cit. ur Rudolph Peters, Jihad in Classical and Modern Islam, s. 44-54.

Since lawful warfare is essentially jihad and since its aim is that the religion is God’s entirely and God’s word is uppermost, therefore, according to all Muslims, those who stand in the way of this aim must be fought. As for those who cannot offer resistance or cannot fight, such as women, children, monks, old people, the blind, handicapped, and their likes, they shall not be killed, unless they actually fight with words [i.e. by propaganda] and acts [e.g. by spying or otherwise assisting in the warfare]. […] we may only fight those who fight us when we want to make God’s religion victorious. […]

This jihad is obligatory if it is carried out on our intitiative and also if it is waged as defence. If we take the initiative, it is a collective duty, [which means that] if it is fulfilled by a sufficient number [of Muslims], the obligation lapses for all others and the merit goes to those who have fulfilled it […] But if the enemy wants to attack the Muslims, then repelling him becomes a duty for all those under attack and for the others in order to help them.

So the latter [form of jihad] consists in defense of the religion, of things that are inviolable, and of lives. Therefore it is fighting out of necessity. The former, however, is voluntary fighting in order to propagate the religion, to make it triumph and to intimidate the enemy, such as was the case with the expedition to Tabuk and the lik.

  • since its aim is that the religion is God’s entirely and God’s word is uppermost, therefore, according to all Muslims, those who stand in the way of this aim must be fought.
  • Get a clue! It means that everyone who does not embrace Islam or submit to subjugation & extortion must be fought.
  • they shall not be killed, unless they actually fight with words
    • Do you understand this? We may be killed because we expose Islam with these blog posts; even though we may be too old or infirm to fight on the battlefield.
  • This jihad is obligatory if it is carried out on our intitiative
    • Defense it ain’t! It is offensive, aggressive war of conquest. Get a clue!
  • The former, however, is voluntary fighting in order to propagate the religion, to make it triumph and to intimidate the enemy, such as was the case with the expedition to Tabuk and the lik.
    • Get a clue, for Chrissake! Islam is a war machine, neither a religion nor peaceful.

    Hillary Clinton Spews Feces!

    In an AFP report carried by Google, President Elect Obama’s designated Secretary of State uttered this cretinous comment in her confirmation hearing.

    “strategy of smart power in the Middle East that addresses the security needs of Israel and the legitimate political and economic aspirations of the Palestinians”

    The security need of Israel is to be permanently and constantly free from attack and the threat of attack. Palestinians are Jews, not Arabs, not Muslims. Palestine is a corruption of a name imposed by Rome as an insult after a rebellion against Roman occupation of Israel. Get a clue; read the history.

    Read the following quotation slowly & carefully; let it sink in for a moment. [Emphasis added.]

    As candidly stated by Zahir Muhsein, then head of the P.L.O. Military Department and a member of its Executive Committee: “The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the State of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality, Today, there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak, Today, about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct Palestinian people to oppose Zionism. For tactical reasons, Jordan — which is a sovereign state with defined borders — cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa. While, as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beersheba and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.” (Amsterdam-based newspaper “Dagblad de Verdieping Trouw”, March 31, 1977). [Palestinian” Identity As Propaganda Device]

    Falestinians do not have any legitimate aspirations! Their aspirations are policide & genocide.

    Read the PLO Charter:

    • Article 9: Armed struggle is the only way to liberate Palestine. Thus it is the overall strategy, not merely a tactical phase. The Palestinian Arab people assert their absolute determination and firm resolution to continue their armed struggle and to work for an armed popular revolution for the liberation of their country and their return to it. They also assert their right to normal life in Palestine and to exercise their right to self-determination and sovereignty over it.
    • Article 10: Commando action constitutes the nucleus of the Palestinian popular liberation war. This requires its escalation, comprehensiveness, and the mobilization of all the Palestinian popular and educational efforts and their organization and involvement in the armed Palestinian revolution. It also requires the achieving of unity for the national (watani) struggle among the different groupings of the Palestinian people, and between the Palestinian people and the Arab masses, so as to secure the continuation of the revolution, its escalation, and victory.
    • Article 15: The liberation of Palestine, from an Arab viewpoint, is a national (qawmi) duty and it attempts to repel the Zionist and imperialist aggression against the Arab homeland, and aims at the elimination of Zionism in Palestine. Absolute responsibility for this falls upon the Arab nation – peoples and governments – with the Arab people of Palestine in the vanguard. Accordingly, the Arab nation must mobilize all its military, human, moral, and spiritual capabilities to participate actively with the Palestinian people in the liberation of Palestine. It must, particularly in the phase of the armed Palestinian revolution, offer and furnish the Palestinian people with all possible help, and material and human support, and make available to them the means and opportunities that will enable them to continue to carry out their leading role in the armed revolution, until they liberate their homeland.

    Platform

    • You are the best community that has been raised up for mankind. Ye enjoin right conduct and forbid indecency; and ye believe in Allah. And if the People of the Scripture had believed, it had been better for them. Some of them are believers; but most of them are evil-doers. [3:110]

    • Sahih Bukhari Volume 6, Book 60, Number 80:

      Narrated Abu Huraira:

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

  • They will not harm you save a trifling hurt, and if they fight against you they will turn and flee. And afterward they will not be helped. [3:111]

  • Israel will rise and will remain erect until Islam eliminates it as it had eliminated its predecessors.
  • Article One

    • The Islamic Resistance Movement draws its guidelines from Islam; derives from it its thinking, interpretations and views about existence, life and humanity; refers back to it for its conduct; and is inspired by it in whatever step it takes.

    Article Three

    • The basic structure of the Islamic Resistance Movement consists of Muslims who are devoted to Allah and worship Him verily [as it is written]: “I have created Man and Devil for the purpose of their worship” [of Allah]. Those Muslims are cognizant of their duty towards themselves, their families and country and they have been relying on Allah for all that. They have raised the banner of Jihad in the face of the oppressors in order to extricate the country and the people from the [oppressors’] desecration, filth and evil.

    Article Five

    • As the Movement adopts Islam as its way of life, its time dimension extends back as far as the birth of the Islamic Message and of the Righteous Ancestor. Its ultimate goal is Islam, the Prophet its model, the Qur’an its Constitution. Its special dimension extends wherever on earth there are Muslims, who adopt Islam as their way of life; thus, it penetrates to the deepest reaches of the land and to the highest spheres of Heavens.

    Article Seven

    • []The prophet, prayer and peace be upon him, said:

      The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: O Muslim! there is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him! This will not apply to the Gharqad, which is a Jewish tree (cited by Bukhari and Muslim). [Sahih Bukhari 4.52.177, Sahih Muslim 41.6985]

    Article Eight

    • Allah is its goal, the Prophet its model, the Qur’an its Constitution, Jihad its path and death for the case of Allah its most sublime belief.

    Article Eleven

    • The Islamic Resistance Movement believes that the land of Palestine has been an Islamic Waqf throughout the generations and until the Day of Resurrection, no one can renounce it or part of it, or abandon it or part of it. No Arab country nor the aggregate of all Arab countries, and no Arab King or President nor all of them in the aggregate, have that right, nor has that right any organization or the aggregate of all organizations, be they Palestinian or Arab, because Palestine is an Islamic Waqf throughout all generations and to the Day of Resurrection. Who can presume to speak for all Islamic Generations to the Day of Resurrection? This is the status [of the land] in Islamic Shari’a, and it is similar to all lands conquered by Islam by force, and made thereby Waqf lands upon their conquest, for all generations of Muslims until the Day of Resurrection. This [norm] has prevailed since the commanders of the Muslim armies completed the conquest of Syria and Iraq, and they asked the Caliph of Muslims, ‘Umar Ibn al-Khattab, for his view of the conquered land, whether it should be partitioned between the troops or left in the possession of its population, or otherwise. Following discussions and consultations between the Caliph of Islam, ‘Umar Ibn al-Khattab, and the Companions of the Messenger of Allah, be peace and prayer upon him, they decided that the land should remain in the hands of its owners to benefit from it and from its wealth; but the control of the land and the land itself ought to be endowed as a Waqf [in perpetuity] for all generations of Muslims until the Day of Resurrection. The ownership of the land by its owners is only one of usufruct, and this Waqf will endure as long as Heaven and earth last. Any demarche in violation of this law of Islam, with regard to Palestine, is baseless and reflects on its perpetrators.

    Article Thirty-Four

    Palestine is the navel of earth, the convergence of continents, the object of greed for the greedy, since the dawn of history. The Prophet, may Allah’s prayer and peace be upon him, points out to that fact in his noble hadith in which he implored his venerable Companion, Ma’adh ibn Jabl, saying:

    • O Ma’adh, Allah is going to grant you victory over Syria after me, from Al-Arish to the Euphrates, while its men, women, and female slaves will be dwelling there until the Day of Resurrection. Those of you who chose [to dwell in one of the plains of Syria or Palestine will be in a state of Jihad to the Day of Resurrection.

    Without giving a specific quote, AFP reports that Mrs. Clinton rejects negotiation with Hamas until they recognize Israel, renounce violence and agree to abide by previous peace agreements. When will that happen? On the 33rd day of the month of Never.

    By virtue of Caliph Umar’s conquest of the Roman Province of Syria in 638, the Levant belongs to Allah and Muslims must maintain possession of it. By reconquering a fragment of her ancient patrimony, Israel disproves Allah’s promises and establishes his status as an impotent idol as demonstrated fact. Muslims will never tolerate that insult.

    Allah made promises to Moe. One of them is quoted in the charter, in Art 29.

    • Allah has decreed: Lo! I verily shall conquer, I and my messengers. Lo! Allah is strong, Almighty. Sura LVIII (Al-Mujadilah), verse 21 [58:21]

    The clearest expression of those promises is brought forth in Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir, which exposes both the ayat in which they are expressed and the ahadith which confirm them. Click these links, read and learn.

    Since James Earl Carter, only one President has demonstrated knowledge and expressed wisdom about the Middle East, and that period lasted about six months: G.W. Bush, who fell off the wagon of truth and reverted to the damnable lies of his predecessors. It is obvious that Barack H. Obama will ride high on the wagon of feces spewed by his predecessors.

    There is no peace and will be none until Islam ceases to exist. This is because Allah commands and his messenger exemplified perpetual war for the purpose of conquering the entire world. This fatal fact is reflected in exegeses, Shari’ah & Fiqh. Only damned fools & accursed liars will deny this fatal fact in the face of clear evidence

    Reliance of the Traveller, Book O. Chapter 9:

    • O9.0 (O: Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada signifying warfare to establish the religion.
    • O9.1 []

      As for subsequent times, there are two possible states in respect to non-Muslims.

      The first is when they are in their own countries, in which case jihad (def: o9.8) is a communal obligation, and this is what our author is speaking of when he says, “Jihad is a communal obligation,” meaning upon the Muslims each year.

    • O9.8: The Objectives of Jihad

      The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o11.4) -which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High,

      Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled” (Koran 9.29),

      the time and place for which is before the final descent of Jesus (upon whom be peace). After his final coming, nothing but Islam will be accepted from them, for taking the poll tax is only effective until Jesus’ descent (upon him and our Prophet be peace), which is the divinely revealed law of Muhammad. The coming of Jesus does not entail a separate divinely revealed law, for he will rule by the law of Muhammad. As for the Prophet’s saying (Allah bless him and give him peace),

      “I am the last, there will be no prophet after me,”

      this does not contradict the final coming of Jesus (upon whom be peace), since he will not rule according to the Evangel, but as a follower of our Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) ).

    • O9.9

      The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim (O: because they are not a people with a Book, nor honored as such, and are not permitted to settle with paying the poll tax (jizya) ) []

    That is Islamic law. It states that the Caliph must make at least one military expedition against Kuffar in every year. This is confirmed by Fiqh.

    Fools, morons, idiots, cretins and the terminally brainwashed will not accept any evidence, no matter how copious nor how well documented. For those few remaining intelligent and open minded people who may read this post, I present links to exegeses: Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir, which cites the ayat & ahadith upon which the Qadi’s expert opinion is based. The titles alone will suffice for the few having common sense.

    Now you know that anyone and everyone who spews “peace process”, “two state solution”, “road map”,”one state solution”, “compromise”, “settlement”, etc. is either a fool or a liar, most likely a liar. Govern yourself accordingly and use common sense when you vote next time, if there is a next time.

    Silence = Acceptance

    I have been sitting in front of my computer for the last week wondering what the hell is going on with the world. Each day I see more and more evidence of the hatred and bigotry associated with “The Religion of Peace”, and not one elected official or member of the media speak out in horror of what they have seen and heard. Their silence is deafening.

    The supporters of murderers take to the streets and the media covers them. What they don’t show the public is the level of hatred that these hordes spew at all times. Scenes like this do not make it on to the nightly news:

    Ft. Lauderdale

    View at YouTube

    Los Angeles

    View at YouTube

    Denmark

    View at YouTube

    I could post hundreds of videos like these, but you get the point. The world does nothing to counter this. And it frightens me.

    I know this frightens many elder Jews. Men and women who suffered the horrors of the Holocaust. They remember how that started, they remember the songs and chants of hatred, and where it led.

    The Holocaust didn’t start with Dachau and Auschwitz, it ended there. It didn’t start with World War 2, that war ended it. It started with an idea. That was all. An idea to rid the world of all people who were Jewish. How they did it is a lesson in hate. It happened in 4 stages.

    Stage 1:

    Propaganda

    It started first with a media campaign. With cartoons and articles depicting Jews as less then human. The Nazis had to win over the hearts and minds of the German people. And it was through the media of the time: Print, radio, and film that they were to accomplish it.

    A fine example of media manipulation by the Nazis.

    As you can see by the above example, Jews are depicted as lazy and unGerman. Exactly the idea the Nazis wanted to show.

    And in today’s media anti-Semitic cartoons are again being shown. Not just in the Muslim world where they are acceptable, but here in the United States and in Europe.

    This one was printed in many major newspapers in the US, Canada and Europe.

    Already the media has joined the bigots in their campaign. The print media has already started the process in 1990 and the rest of the media (Conservative radio withstanding) is jumping on the band wagon. It is already to blame Israel and more importantly Jews for all the evils in the world. That is the message the majority of people in the West are hearing day and night from the media. It is becoming their mantra, their motto. And the majority of people in the West are like sheep. They are easily led and manipulated.

    Stage 1 is well underway. On to Stage 2.

    Stage 2:

    Protests and Riots

    Stage 2 is the “People’s Uprising” part of the operation. In this supposed average citizens (and in the case of German: Brownshirts) take to the streets in protests. These protests get more and more violent over the weeks, months or years, culminating in the ultimate protest of all: The Riot (in Germany Kristallnacht).


    Again we are seeing the middle part of Stage 2. So-called “citizen protests” in every major city in the world. Many are turning violent. In London and Paris there have been riots.

    Riot in London

    This is just the beginning. The protests all over the world will get more and more violent and will be attacking more and more Israeli and Jewish businesses and people.

    Governments will have to cave into the demands of the rioters in order to have peace. There is just one problem. Their demands lead directly to Stages 3 and 4.

    By this time the government is able to start their “Final Solution” without any subterfuge. They will eliminate the rabble crowd from public view (In Germany Hitler destroyed the Brownshirts) and can operated openly with public support in many cases.

    Stage 3:

    Deportation

    The government will begin the round up of their Jewish population to place them in safe areas. This now can be done openly and with great fanfare if the government wishes. The people will be placed in special areas with a city (as in the Warsaw Ghetto) or special areas in their nation (as in various Indian Reservations or Japanese Interment Camps). If people complain about it, they either mysteriously disappear or are brought up on false charges. If a group starts to complain about what is happening, they are reminded that these people are being relocated for their own protection.

    The round up of Dutch Jews.

    The majority population either doesn’t care or is openly supportive of the action being taken.

    Sometimes governments stop here. They either do not have the immorality in them to take the last step, or enough public outcry stops them from taking the last step.

    Stage 4:

    Genocide.

    It is a very small step to go from the rounding up of people to the mass execution of people. A very small step. This step is normally done without the public’s knowledge and with a total or almost total media blackout. For if the general public ever found out about the slaughter of innocent people, they would be so horrified that they might not be easily controlled by the government.

    In Turkey the government rounded up millions of Armenians and slaughtered them by shootings, starvation, and illness.

    Photo of some of the Armenian Holocaust

    In Germany at the start of the Holocaust, the Germans had a 2-fold idea. Starvation and mobile killing units (Einsatzgruppen). This units would dig a big ditch or pit, have the Jews rounded up, many times they would force the people to strip, then line the up and shoot them. At Babi Yar more than 34,000 men, women and children were murdered over a 2 day period.

    Babi Yar

    But that was too inefficient and slow. The final step in the perfect genocide is the creation of “special death camps”. Places where the only object is to kill your fellow man. The names of Auschwitz, Treblinka, Sobibór, Bełżec, Chełmno, and Majdanek jump out at you. They speak of untold horror and death. They are the end result in what started with Stage 1.

    Two ovens inside the crematorium at the Dachau concentration camp. Dachau, Germany, July 1, 1945.

    Already we are seeing the first 2 stages of the road to genocide being played out in the world. There is the media accepting as truth the propaganda and lies coming from the Muslim world, accepting without any questions. And there is the “People’s Uprisings” being played all over the world. Already Stage 2 is progressing to riots and beatings. If left unchecked these riots will become worse and there will be murders associated with them.

    And what do we have to combat it? Very little. We have bloggers who try and spread the truth about what is happening. We have a few conservative speakers on the radio trying to spread the truth. But we have mostly silence. Silence from elected officials too scared of those who are rioting to anger them further and silence from the media, too afraid of losing their viewers. And thus has begun.

    I know many voices on the right who claim that this cannot happen again, that they will not allow it. But how many of them would actually lay down their lives to prevent it? It is one thing to say you will not allow it, but another to actually have to take a stand and prevent it.

    Each day I am reminded of the words of Edmund Burke, 1729-1797, British statesman and philosopher, who wrote:

    “Evil flourishes when good men do nothing.”

    I pray that this time the good men and women will do something to stop it.

    Silence = Acceptance
