Well, that’s good news. Obama has succeeded in estanlishing “Osama” followers in every Muslim country in the world....and we give them aid besides.
They murdered 3000 Americans in an hour,
and NOW they run the White House,
and Pentagon — led by an undocumented,
Lucky for THEM, Congress is on its knees.
They all agree on re-establishing the Caliphate.
But Al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood represent two separate and conflicting strains of islamism.
The Salafists adhere to a political theology that views muslims in the West as migrants in enemy territory, a realm they speak of as Dar al-Kufr (House of the Heathen) or Dar Al-Harb (House of War) -- as opposed to Dar al-Islam. Al-qaeda and other Salafi jihadis openly espouse violent jihad to actualize the Caliphate, whereas others, such as Hizb ut-Tahrir and the Muslim Brotherhood concentrate on non-violent activities, believing that violent jihad should be postponed until the day when their demographic numbers will be sufficient enough for a full-spectrum offensive against the infidels.
In contrast to the Salafists, the Muslim Brotherhood sponsors indeed a doctrine -- known as Wasatiya -- that emphasizes the use of ijtihâd, or discernment, in Sharia matters -- independent of what is literally prescribed in islamic scripture. This doctrine, first formulated by al-Alalwani, -- the president of the Fiqh Council of North America -- does not differentiate between Dar al-Kufr and Dar al-Islam.
Taha Jabir al-Alalwani, the founder and former chairman of the Fiqh Council of North America, is among the most influential muslim preachers in the United States.
Commitment to the Koranic concept of Geography: The land belongs to Allah, his religion is Islam, and every country is already in the House of Islam -- now in the present time -- since they will be in the House of Islam by force in the near future. The whole of humanity is a Muslim Nation (Ummah): it is either 'the religion of the nation' which has embraced this religion [Islam], or a 'proselyte nation' which we are obliged to conquer.
-- Alalwani, The Jurisprudence of Muslim Minority Affairs. No. 7, quoted here
Alalwani is the precursor of Muslim Minority Affairs, thought of as a doctrine for muslims confined to circumstances where sharia can't be implemented.
The use of this doctrine requires an understanding of social sciences, he said, especially sociology, demographics, economics, political science and international relations -- since the fundamental predicate of this doctrine is that the whole earth is a muslim land, and the whole of humanity a muslim nation.
That doctrine produces a muslim jurisprudence that is allowing its muslim adherents to adopt a pragmatic approach to the task of spreading islam in the Western world. It is revaluating the islamic perception of the West as a Land of War, to conceive it rather as a realm for islamic proselytizing, for dawah.
Salafists rail against what they perceive to be Wasatiyas compromise with the West, asserting the use of ijtihâd takes too many liberties in the application of Sharia, and erodes the unity and authenticity of the Muslim Nation. Qaradawi, the leading clering on Wasatiya along with Alalwani, has personally drawn the ire of Salafists worldwide, including Zarqawi and Zarawihi, the leader of al-Qaeda.
Oh, for heaven’s sake. Who didn’t know this? zawahiri is mb to the core.
Err... no. He agrees with Qaradawi on reinstating the Caliphate, but he disagrees with the strategy of dawah, involving muslim minority affairs.
Dutch Ruppersburger D-2nd MD told the sunpapers earlier this that
The Muslim Brotherhood is a force for moderation.
Don’t kid yourself. He was there in the beginning and when push comes to shove they will be there in the end...whatever end that might be.
It's pretty well known. I've explained it more details here.
I'm not saying the Muslim Brotherhood is more 'moderate' or something. That means nothing; Qaradawi backs suicide-bombing in Gaza and Iraq for instance. I'm talking actual strategy and tactics here.
