Posted on 07/16/2018 10:12:13 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
It is commonplace for Leftists and Islamic apologists in the West to claim that jihadis are ignorant of Islam, and indifferent to it. Terrorists dont kill for their religion, asserted an article published in the World Economic Forum last year, just one of many that claim the same thing. Yet again and again we see just the opposite: jihadis are devout, informed Muslims.
Here is yet another example: According to the Times Ledger, a Muslim named Ahmed Parveg pleaded guilty in a Brooklyn federal court last month to helping the overseas terrorist organization ISIS. Parveg traveled to Saudi Arabia [in] June 2017 to celebrate the Islamic religious holiday Ramadan, then attempted to travel to Syria to join ISIS.
Parveg was a fan of the now-dead jihad mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki, and had bookmarked on his computer a recording of a sermon in which al-Awlaki preached: Jihad must continue and fighting must go on until the Final Hour comes. Fighting is only increasing as prescribed by Allah -- now it is time to carry the battle to further lands outside of Arab countries.
Was Parveg intending to kill for his religion? He got religious in the last year. Not radical, just religious, his brother said after Parveg was arrested.
Not only was Parveg religious, the group he wanted to join was -- and is -- as well.
The Islamic State (ISIS), in its heyday, quoted the Quran frequently -- odd behavior if the group was actually ignorant of, indifferent to, or in violation of the books core tenets. ISIS quoted the Quran extensively in threats to blow up the White House and conquer Rome and Spain; in explaining its priorities in the nations it is targeting in jihad; in preaching to Christians after collecting the jizya (a Quran-based tax, cf. Quran 9:29); in justifying the execution of accused spies; and in its various videos.
ISIS also awarded $10,000 prizes and sex slaves in Quran memorization contests. One of its underground lairs was found littered with weapons and copies of the Quran. Children in the Islamic State study the Quran and get weapons training. One Malaysian Muslim said that the Quran led him to join the Islamic State. A Muslim woman in the U.S. promoted the Islamic State by quoting the Quran. An Islamic State propagandists parents said of him: Our son is a devout Muslim. He had learnt the Quran by heart. A Muslim politician from Jordan said that the Islamic States doctrine stems from the Quran and Sunnah.
All this and much more like it points to a fact that todays political and media elites steadfastly refuse to recognize, and accuse anyone who notices it of Islamophobia: the Quran repeatedly calls upon believers to commit acts of violence against non-Muslims, and there is a direct connection between devoutness in Islam and violence.
Not all who are devout in Islam will ever become violent -- but VIRTUALLY ALL JIHAD TERRORISTS ARE DEVOUT MUSLIMS!
In fact, jihad groups such as ISIS and al-Qaeda make recruits among peaceful Muslims by appealing to them on Islamic grounds, and by presenting themselves as the quintessentially authentic Muslims.
A sane society with a rational public discourse would be having a public discussion of this and its implications, and would be calling upon Muslim organizations in the U.S. to renounce the aspects of the Quran and Sunnah that contradict Constitutional principles and freedoms. Instead of doing this, the Leftist elites condemn as bigoted and Islamophobic anyone who calls for such a course of action.
But these smear words arent going to blunt the force of the Quranic imperative to wage jihad. Their only effect will be the discrediting and silencing of people who call attention to the nature and magnitude of the global jihad, which will continue to advance, even to the point at which the jihads useful idiots on the Left will be targeted.
At that point, as the jihadis blade begins to slice through their necks, they can congratulate themselves on never having been, even for a moment, so racist as to have favored limitations on immigration from jihadi hotspots, or other counter-jihad measures.
Most Muslims thankfully have this COGNITIVE DISSONANCE that allows them to be Muslims and ignore the example of Mohammad himself.
The most dangerous of muslims are those who most closely emulate their prophet.
Parveg was a fan of the now-dead jihad mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki.
Anwar al-Awlaki was an American citizen.
His children, born in Yemen, are not natural born citizens of the US by any stretch of the imagination.
10th-century Byzantine emperor Nikephoros Phokas recognized the advantage that the Muslims had with their belief in jihad.
So he tried to get the Patriarch of Constantinople to decree that Christians who died fighting Muslims would go to Heaven, but the Patriarch refused.
I’m reminded of how Stephen Coughlin was hounded away from those who needed to hear him say similar things by those who chose instead to listen to CAIR or their Muslim friends.
Coughlin, look up “Red Pill Briefing” if you’ve not heard of him, is spot on in saying that we don’t have to prove what the real Islam is but only demonstrate that the Jihadis make it very clear that they are all about Islam, that the books they reference are available — even in English as it’s an official language of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation — and on sale all across the West.
I’ve likened these as their version of the classic American film “Why We Fight” ... and as Coughlin observes if you’re in the intelligence business and you don’t know the things he sets forth in order then you’re engaged in malpractice.
But, you know, Religion of Peace and all that.
And, actually, good for the Patriarch because that would be declaring a different Gospel than the one given once for all time.
As I’ve pointed out: when a Muslim is a good disciple of Mohammad that is a VERY bad thing.
Since I usually mention this when nitwits try to make equivalence with Christianisty it usually is accompanied with “but on the other hand when a Christian is a good disciple of Christ that is a VERY good thing.”
The more a m*slim practices his religion, the more he is violent and intolerant. The worst one is the convert. He digs deeper into his new religion to find out more, and to practice it all. Since it tells him to rape, burn and kill, that’s what he does.
The pope granted indulgences for going on Crusade.
I’ve neither said nor implied that was a valid concession.
” Most Muslims thankfully have this COGNITIVE DISSONANCE that allows them to be Muslims and ignore the example of Mohammad himself. “
So far, most of the worlds one+ billion Muslims do not adhere to or pursue violent jihad.
On the other hand I strongly suggest that most of them approve of worldwide Sharia however obtained.
That is an example of Muslim heresy and why those type of Muslims get killed along with us Kafirs, by the fundamental Muslims, who do what Allah wants done, and follow the examples set by Muhammad, and the Caliphs who immediately followed Muhammad. - Tom
