Usama bin Laden: As-Samu-Alaikum!!

I have found transcripts of the latest bin Laden screed here:http://msnbcmedia.msn.com/i/msnbc/sections/news/070907_bin_laden_transcript.pdf
[scanned text, not properly aligned when scanned; low resolution]
http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,296065,00.html
[scanned text, distracting pen marks]The screed is a taunting mockery; full of deception and projection.

Regarding the Iraq theater of war:

“There are two solutions to stopping it. One is from our side, and it is to escalate the fighting and killing against you. This is our duty, and our brothers are carrying it out,” “The second solution is from your side,” he said. “I invite you to embrace Islam.”

What does that mean?

  • escalate the fighting and killing against you. This is our duty, and our brothers are carrying it out, is a clear indication of bin Laden’s intent to attack us again.
  • I invite you to embrace Islam. That is the fulfillment of an essential Islamic legal requirement:

The Reliance of the Traveller. Version 1.06 – By Ahmad Ibn Naqib Al-Misri
BOOK O: JUSTICE >> Chapter O-9.0: Jihad


O-9.8: The Objectives of Jihad
The caliph (o-25) 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: o-11.4) -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,

Having met that requirement of Sharia, bin Laden now considers any further attack on us to be fully justified; in compliance with Islamic law.

Bin Laden also said: “Peace be upon he who follows the guidance.” For the benefit of the clueless among you, here is where he got that expression:

LETTER TO KHUSRO PERWEZ, EMPEROR OF FARS
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.
From Muhammad, Prophet of Allah to Kisra, King of Fars
May peace be on him who follows the guidance, believes in Allah and his Prophet. I testify that there:is none worthy of worship except Allah, who is alone and without an associate and Muhammad is His Servant and Prophet. Allah has made me a Prophet and sent me for the entire world, in order that I may infuse the fear of Allah in every living person. Accept Islam and be secure. If you refuse, the sins of all the Zoroastrians shall be your responsibility. Seal: Allah’s Prophet Muhammad

Muhammad dictated and dispatched many extortion letters, which you can read at alquraan.net, by clicking the extortion letter reproduced above. What does it mean?

  • May peace be on him who follows the guidance means that Muhammad would make war on anyone who refused to comply with his demand. This is a token of supreme arrogance.
  • in order that I may infuse the fear of Allah in every living person refers to two ayat: 3:151 & 8:12 which sanctify & mandate terrorism. They are reproduced below, together with an ahadith which confirms their meaning. If any doubt remains, consult 33:26-27 to see the practical application.
  • Accept Islam and be secure means: If you don’t accept Islam, Muhammad will make war on you.

Of course Muhammad confirmed this in an ahadith.

Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 267:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet said, “Khosrau will be ruined, and there will be no Khosrau after him, and Caesar will surely be ruined and there will be no Caesar after him, and you will spend their treasures in Allah’s Cause.” He called, “War is deceit’.

Did Muhammad follow through on his threat? No, he died before getting around to it. But Umar took care of it. These excerpts from a long ahadith will make it plain for you. [Click the link to read the whole thing.]

Bukhari Volume 4, Book 53, Number 386:
Narrated Jubair bin Haiya:
‘Umar sent the Muslims to the great countries to fight the pagans…. When we reached the land of the enemy, the representative of Khosrau came out with forty-thousand warriors, and an interpreter got up saying, “Let one of you talk to me!” Al-Mughira replied, “Ask whatever you wish.” The other asked, “Who are you?”… Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, has ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya (i.e. tribute); and our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says:– “Whoever amongst us is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise to lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever amongst us remain alive, shall become your master.”

Persia was not originally Islamic. How did you think it was Islamized?

The bottom line: bin Laden has made an extortionate demand, threatening us with further mass casualty attacks if we do not embrace Islam. We need to respond by telling that worshipper of Satan to go to Hell and be damned. We need to declare Mecca as default target for immediate retaliation in the event of any further attack by Islam. For this purpose I urge and exhort you to sign the Target: Mecca petition, send it to comments@whitehouse.gov and to all your friends. Exhort them to follow suit. Do it now, before the next attack! If not now, when? If not us, who?

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.

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.

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).

Bush Lies About Islam!!!


Remarks by the President to the APEC Business Summit

As Prepared for Delivery

September 06, 2007 06:03 PM Eastern Daylight Time

…Second, nations in the Asia Pacific are providing economic assistance to struggling communities where the terrorists operate so we can strengthen moderate leaders and give citizens in these communities alternatives to the path of radicalism and violence1…. Fourth, nations in the Asia Pacific are working to defeat the terrorists hateful ideology2. Prime Minister Lee of Singapore says the fight against terrorism is a long-term ideological struggle. He is right. We must bring the terrorists to justice3, and to prevail in this struggle, we must also defeat them in the battle of ideas4. Our enemies are followers of a violent and narrow ideology5, a political vision that despises freedom, rejects tolerance, and crushes all dissent. Their goal is to impose this ideology on millions across the world6. For there to be peace, we must promote an alternative vision of human dignity and human liberty a hopeful vision far stronger than the dark appeal of resentment and murder7. And that is precisely what leaders across the Asia Pacific region are doing.

In Indonesia, President Yudhoyono hosted an interfaith dialogue soon after taking office where he called on his fellow citizens to ensure that the forces of light, reason, and hope overpower the forces of darkness, despair, and violence. The head of the largest Muslim organization in Indonesia, Dr. Hasyim Muzadi, was one of the first Muslim leaders to visit Ground Zero in New York. He puts it this way: There is no violence, cruelty, chaos, and viciousness on behalf of religion, including Islam.8

In Malaysia, Prime Minister Badawi is working to promote what he calls Islam Hadhari or Civilizational Islam9 and he has called on his fellow Malaysians to show by example that a Muslim country can be modern, democratic10, tolerant, and economically competitive.

In the Philippines, President Arroyo has reached out to Muslim leaders and has called Filipinos to oppose terrorists who kill, bomb, and maim to enforce an ideology of evil. And a group of leading Filipino Islamic jurists issued a joint sermon declaring Islam and terrorism stand on the opposite ends of the moral spectrum. Murder and the killing of innocent civilians in warfare is strictly forbidden.11


  1. Economic development is not a substitute for Jihad. Jihad is doctrine driven. Usama bin Laden was a wealthy man. His wealth did not dissuade him from participating in Jihad. Many of the homicide bombers were law & medicine students with bright futures.
  2. What is that hateful ideology? Why not name it: Islam. Why not disclose the doctrines which drive it?
  3. Who are the terrorists? How many are there? How do you hope to locate, identify & prosecute every Muslim who supports, sympathizes with, finances or facilitates terrorism?
  4. What ideas? Why not identify the doctrines which drive Jihad? What are you doing; what do you propose to do to counter those ideas?
  5. What ideology? Why won’t you name it? Why won’t you list its idea set?
  6. Their goal is to impose Islam upon the entire world: total domination on a global scale. Why won’t you acknowledge this fact?
  7. “Dark appeal of resentment and murder”? No, Mr. President; the glorious promise of eternity in a garden flowing with rivers of milk and wine with low hanging fruit always in season; in the company of perpetual virgins & little boys, fresh as pearls. That glorious promise is contrasted with the terrible threat of eternity in Hell fire; eating bitter burning thorns and drinking boiling water. A Muslim earns Paradise by participating in Jihad and is condemned to Hell for shirking. Do you not understand that Muslims have sold their lives & property to Allah in return for Paradise, for which they kill and are killed? They have written off earthly prosperity and pleasure for the eternal.
  8. The worst Goddamn lies ever told!!! Totally malignant & malicious; without redemption! See the doctrines of Islam exposed below, which sanctify conquest, genocide & terrorism..
  9. Pure fraud; there is no such thing! Islam is only what Allah revealed in the Qur’an and Muhammad exemplified in his Sira & Sunnah. Anything else is not Islam.
  10. Impossible! Only Allah has the right to rule. Once Allah and his Messenger have decreed a matter, no dissent is permitted. Islamic law is the Qur’an & Sunnah; manmade legislation is blasphemous.
  11. Malicious Malarkey!!! Kuffar are regarded as rebels against Allah. Their lives and property are not sacred to Muslims. Kuffar are listed as Najis things, along with cadavers and excrement. Killing them is expressly commanded in 8:67 and 47:4. Below you will find an ahadith in which a captive describes the examination and slaughter of boys who had reached puberty. Killing children is proscribed on economic, not moral grounds. Dead children could not be sold into slavery.

Since President Bush will not expose the set of ideas which drive Islam, I will.

  • Exclusivity–only Allah has the right to be worshiped. Examine 3:2 as translated by Hilali & Khan.Allâh! Lâ ilahâ illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists. Note that they include the transliterated Arabic. See also three alternative translations at USC.
  • Supremacism–Islam must be dominant. 9:33. It is He Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islâm), to make it superior over all religions even though the Mushrikûn (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allâh) hate (it). Bukhari Volume 4, Book 53, Number 355:Narrated Abu Musa Al-Ashari:A bedouin asked the Prophet, “A man may fight for the sake of booty, and another may fight so that he may be mentioned by the people, and a third may fight to show his position (i.e. bravery); which of these regarded as fighting in Allah’s Cause?” The Prophet said, “He who fights so that Allah’s Word (i.e. Islam) should be superior, fights for Allah’s Cause.” 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.
  • Triumphalism: 3:111 They will do you no harm, barring a trifling annoyance; and if they fight against you, they will show you their backs, and they will not be helped. 3:125Yes, if you hold on to patience and piety, and the enemy comes rushing at you; your Lord will help you with five thousand angels having marks (of distinction).” 3:127 That He might cut off a part of those who disbelieve, or expose them to infamy, so that they retire frustrated. 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. 13:41 See they not that We gradually reduce the land (of disbelievers, by giving it to the believers, in war victories) from its outlying borders. And Allâh judges, there is none to put back His Judgement and He is Swift at reckoning.

What are the damnable doctrines of Islam that make it an existential threat? President Bush won’t expose them, I will.

  • Jihad: fighting in Allah’s cause. This is not Jihad an-Nafs– against the self/temptation. Who is liable to be killed struggleing against temptation? 3:145, 3:154, 3:156,. 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.). Jihad is mandatory, not optional. 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.
  • Jihad against Pagans: 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.
  • Jihad against Jews, Christians & Zoroastrians: 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.
  • Terrorism: 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.33:26-27 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. 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.
  • Genocide: 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. 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,

The Qur’an does not say that? Prove it! I provided links to the King Fahd Complex For Printing The Noble Qur’an. Click them, read them and prove me wrong.

The Qur’an does not mean that? Prove it! 3:7 says otherwise: It is He Who has sent down to you (Muhammad ) the Book (this Qur’ân). In it are Verses that are entirely clear, they are the foundations of the Book [and those are the Verses of Al-Ahkâm (commandments, etc.), Al-Farâ’id (obligatory duties) and Al-Hudud (legal laws for the punishment of thieves, adulterers, etc.)]; and others not entirely clear. So as for those in whose hearts there is a deviation (from the truth) they follow that which is not entirely clear thereof, seeking Al-Fitnah (polytheism and trials, etc.), and seeking for its hidden meanings, but none knows its hidden meanings save Allâh. And those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say: “We believe in it; the whole of it (clear and unclear Verses) are from our Lord.” And none receive admonition except men of understanding. (Tafsir At-Tabarî).

In evidence whereof, I submit Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir: The Mutashabihat and Muhkamat Ayat . Who knows more about the Qur’an, you or Ibn Kathir, who spent his whole life studying it?

8:39, 9:29, 8:12 & 8:67 don’t say what they mean? Lets see what Ibn Kathir has to say about that:

Then how did Muhammad apply those ayat?

  • 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.”
  • 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).
  • 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.
  • Bukhari Volume 5, Book 59, Number 512:
    Narrated Anas:
    The Prophet offered the Fajr Prayer near Khaibar when it was still dark and then said, “Allahu-Akbar! Khaibar is destroyed, for whenever we approach a (hostile) nation (to fight), then evil will be the morning for those who have been warned.” Then the inhabitants of Khaibar came out running on the roads. The Prophet had their warriors killed, their offspring and woman taken as captives. Safiya was amongst the captives, She first came in the share of Dahya Alkali but later on she belonged to the Prophet . The Prophet made her manumission as her ‘Mahr’.

What does Islamic law say about Jihad?

  • The Reliance of the Traveller. Version 1.06 – By Ahmad Ibn Naqib Al-Misri
    BOOK O: JUSTICE >> Chapter O-9.0: Jihad


    O-9.8: The Objectives of Jihad
    The caliph (o-25) 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: o-11.4) -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-9.9
    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) ) (n: though according to the Hanafi school, peoples of all other religions, even idol worshippers, are permitted to live under the protection of the Islamic state if they either become Muslim or agree to pay the poll tax, the sole exceptions to which are apostates from Islam and idol worshippers who are Arabs, neither of whom has any choice but becoming Muslim (al-Hidaya sharh Bidaya al-mubtadi’ (y-21), 6.48-49) ).

The Caliph does what?! He makes war; he fights!!! In the normal course of business!!! That is Islamic law. Need a second opinion? How about two?

What must the Imam do? How often?

Newt Approaches Comprehension

In a new post, Newt Gingrich swerves dangerously close to the truth. He does not directly confess it, but he presents sufficient information to allow the reader to see the big picture.

  • For six years, we have failed to confront the scale of our enemy, the direct threat of nuclear and biological weapons if possessed by that enemy, and the scale and nature of the strategy needed to win the larger war with that enemy.
  • The great tragedy of the six years since 9/11 is that we have not had a national debate about the scale of our opponents, the depth of their hatred for our way of life and the very real threat that they will acquire nuclear and biological weapons. With the former, they may kill hundreds of thousands of Americans in our cities. With the latter, millions of Americans could die in a deliberate attack.
  • Iraq and Afghanistan Are Campaigns Within the Larger War

  • As long as Iran is allowed to ship weapons into Iraq, we will never fully bring stability to Iraq.

    As long as Syria is allowed to serve as a transit point for foreign terrorists coming into Iraq, we will never fully defeat the insurgent forces.

    As long as Saudi sources finance the spread of Wahhabism across the planet and the Wahhabists continue to advocate Jihad and martyrdom, the flow of new terrorist recruits willing to die will continue.

    As long as the current dictatorship runs Iran and works every day to create nuclear weapons and to sustain terrorists groups such as Hezbollah, Hamas and the professional state-sponsored terrorists of the Iranian Guard units, our civilization will not be safe.

The site is interactive, but it only allows short comments. Go and read the full article and the comments. And be prepared for Newt’s major speech next Monday!

Open Letter to

Rabbi Eric H. Yoffie, President Union for Reform Judaism and other ignoramuses who spew complete fiction about Islam.

  • There exists in this country among all Americans – whether Jews, Christians, or non-believers – a huge and profound ignorance about Islam.

That much is beyond dispute. But a few of us are trying to do something about it. We have listened to Islam’s spokesmen, and we have read Allah’s word and Muhammad’s traditions. We have even delved into Islamic law to see what Islam is all about. Everyone should do the same instead of pontificating from the ivory tower of ignorance.

  • …there is no shortage of voices prepared to tell us that fanaticism and intolerance are fundamental to Islamic religion, and that violence and even suicide bombing have deep Koranic roots…

Rabbi Yoffie implies that:

  1. fanaticism is not fundamental to Islam
  2. intolerance is not fundamental to Islam
  3. Islam is a religion
  4. violence does not have deep Koranic roots.
  1. Muhammad, the founder of Islam, was a fanatic.

    Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 54:
    Narrated Abu Huraira:
    The Prophet said, “By Him in Whose Hands my life is! Were it not for some men amongst the believers who dislike to be left behind me and whom I cannot provide with means of conveyance, I would certainly never remain behind any Sariya’ (army-unit) setting out in Allah’s Cause. By Him in Whose Hands my life is! I would love to be martyred in Al1ah’s Cause and then get resurrected and then get martyred, and then get resurrected again and then get martyred and then get resurrected again and then get martyred.

    Whom do Muslims emulate?

    By the declaration of the second part of the Muslim shahada (witness), which is “ash-hadu anna Muhammad rasool Allah” (Muhammad is the messenger of Allah), a Muslim vows to accept Muhammad (pbuh) as his role model in life. If the Qur’an is the Word of God, the model life led by Muhammad is its practical expression. That means a Muslim has to actualize the commands and prohibitions of God given in the Qur’an by following in all the areas of life, Allah’s Messenger, Muhammad (pbuh).

  2. 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!

  3. Jews & Christians are the worst of creatures, to be burned; Allah curses them. <sarcasm> No sign of intolerance at all! </sarcasm>

  4. Islam is not a religion. Islam is a war machine camouflaged with a thin veil of false faith fabricated for the purpose of motivating murderers and camouflaging their intent. This fact is fully documented in Has Islam Been Hijacked?
  5. 2:216 makes Jihad mandatory, not optional. “Jihad is ordained for you.” 2:190…193 give us a few hints. …”fight in the Way of Allâh those who fight you”…”kill them wherever you find them”…”fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allâh) and (all and every kind of) worship is for Allâh (Alone).”… Read the translator’s note on 2:190 at the bottom of the page. 8:39 and 9:29 are fight until loops, declaring unremitting war upon pagans, Jews & Christians respectively. Unfortunately, they are also the basis of Islamic law, which I quote from The Reliance of The Traveler, a widely accepted handbook of Fiqh.

    The caliph (o-25) 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: o-11.4) -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)…

  • How did it happen that Christian fundamentalists, such as Pat Robertson and Franklin Graham, make vicious and public attacks against your religious tradition?

It happened this way: Robertson & Graham accurately described Islam’s tradition! I refer you to Sahih Bukhari’s books of Jihad & Khumus. Those books describe Islam’s traditions: what Muhammad did and said on and about the battlefield.

  • How did it happen that a member of Congress, Tom Tancredo, now running for President, calls for the bombing of Mecca and Medina?

It happened this way: Congressman Tancredo was briefed on the terrorist threats and decided that we need a deterrent. He called for targeting Mecca if we are nuked because no other deterrent is possible against those who seek martyrdom.

  • As a Jew I know that our sacred texts, including the Hebrew Bible, are filled with contradictory propositions, and these include passages that appear to promote violence and thus offend our ethical sensibilities. Such texts are to be found in all religions, including Christianity and Islam.

Only Islamic scripture sanctifies & mandates Jihad, genocide & terrorism with clear, direct, open ended outcome based commands.

3:151, 8:12, 8:39, 8:67 & 9:29 have no equivalents in the Gospels & Acts. Go to Hell and hunt for them!! Those are Islamic law, binding on every Muslim in all times and all places.

I previously cited Reliance of The Traveler. Now I will cite Al-Shafii, a prominent Islamic Jurist.

Al-Shafi’i (God have mercy on him) said: “The least that the imam must do is that he allow no year to pass without having organised a military expedition by himself, or by his raiding parties, according to the Muslims’ interest, so that the jihad will only be stopped in a year for a (reasonable) excuse.” He said: “If he did not undertake the sending of enough troops to fight, those who are absent (must) go out, and consider as an obligation that which God (who is praised) said.”

Do not take my word for this! Do not believe anyone who claims to be an expert! Go to the sources; hear it from the ass’s mouth! Click the hyper links in this article and read the source documents.  Above all, never believe any damn fool Dhimmi who assures you that “Islam is a religion of peace.”!
