Here is the sound bite that pissed me off.
“Islam did not attack the World Trade Center – Al-Qaeda did. To implicate all of Islam for the actions of a few who twisted a great religion is unfair and un-American. Today we are not at war with Islam – we are at war with Al-Qaeda and other extremists who hate freedom."
Islam did not attackWhen the hijackers slit the throats of the flight crews, they pronounced the takbir, praising the demon whose name is Allah. Allahhu Akhbar means "Allah is greater.". They murdered the flight crews in Allah's name, that makes it an Islamic act.
Al-Qaeda didAl-Qaeda is only a name, an artificial subdivision of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood is only a name, an artificial subdivision of Ummah al-Islamiyya. I refer damned fools, liars, doubters, deniers & dissenters to the Charter of HAMAS, which defines the Falestinian branch of al-Ikhwan-al-Muslimeen.
Article One:The Islamic Resistance Movement: The Movement's programme is Islam. From it, it draws its ideas, ways of thinking and understanding of the universe, life and man. It resorts to it for judgement in all its conduct, and it is inspired by it for guidance of its steps.
Article Eight:Allah is its target, the Prophet is its model, the Koran its constitution: Jihad is its path and death for the sake of Allah is the loftiest of its wishes. [Emphasis & link added.]
implicate all of IslamWhat the Hell did they say? In whose name did they slit throats? What did he command them to do?
- 9:5. ... then kill the Mushrikûn (see V.2:105) wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and prepare for them each and every ambush....
- 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.
- 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." [Emphasis added.]
- ...Allah commanded His Messenger to fight the People of the Scriptures, Jews and Christians, on the ninth year of Hijrah, and he prepared his army to fight the Romans and called the people to Jihad announcing his intent and destination. The Messenger sent his intent to various Arab areas around Al-Madinah to gather forces, and he collected an army of thirty thousand.... [The Order to fight People of the Scriptures until They give the Jizyah]
- 09.1 Jihad is a communal obligation (def: c3.2). When enough people perform it to successfully accomplish it, it is no longer obligatory upon others...
- ...If none of those concerned perform jihad, and it does not happen at all, then everyone who is aware that it is obligatory is guilty of sin, if there was a possibility of having performed it. In the time of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) jihad was a communal obligation after his emigration (hijra) to Medina. 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: 09.8) 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.... [Emphasis added.]
- "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."
- o9.8 Thc caliph (025) 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: 01 L4)-which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (0: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (0: 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),...
actions of a fewJihad is fard al-kifaya; communally binding until a sufficient number have responded to the front. (Undat al-Salik o9.1) Full mobilization is only required (fard ayn) when Dar ul-Islam is invaded. Those few are the believers [8:2, 49:15 ] who have been purchased by Allah as slaves to fight in his cause, kill and be killed.
twisted a great religionI showed you Allah's imperative, Moe's confirmation, and their codification in Shari'ah. What was twisted? It is Islam, stupid; it ain't Judaism and it ain't Christianity. It ain't al-Qaeda. It is Islam, stupid!
we are not at war with IslamTrue, Islam is at war against us, but our elected leadership is too stupid, dishonest, cowardly & treasonous to acknowledge the fact and reciprocate.
at war with Al-QaedaShrub declared "war on terror", which is a tactic of Islam, not an enemy.
and other extremistsThe founder of Islam revealed the Jihad imperatives. The founder of Islam exemplified compliance with them and bragged that he was "made victorious with terror". Moe is the standard. What Moe preached and practiced is normative Islam, not extremism!
who hate freedomThey hate kufr: rebellion against Allah (disbelief). They hate everything not Islamic.
“But if we say that a mosque and community center should not be built near the perimeter of the World Trade Center site, we would compromise our commitment to fighting terror with freedom."
The Burlington Coat factory took a direct hit; part of one aircraft projected through the tower and penetrated the roof, passing through two floors. That makes it part of ground zero.
Terror is not an enemy, it is a tactic. Islam is fighting us and we need to fight Islam. Freedom is our highest value, not a tactic, neither is it a weapon. If we desire to remain alive and free, then we must retaliate and eliminate the enemy which attacked us in the 19th century and resumed attacking us in the 20th .
Freedom must be reciprocal. Islam does not reciprocate, it enslaves. We are not obligated to give our enemy a staging ground and weapons from which and with which to attack us.
"First, that Muslims have a constitutional right to build a mosque in Lower Manhattan..."
"...And above all of that, we are Americans, each with an equal right to worship and pray where we choose...."
The First Amendment's free exercise clause is meant to protect legitimate religions, not war cults. Islam sanctifies conquest, genocide & terrorism. How in Hell can there be a right to perform genocidal conquest, which is a "religious obligation" in Islam? If there is a right to practice Islam, then Muslims have a right to kill us, rape our widows and enslave our orphans. If such rights exist, our rights are abrogated.
