"War on Terror 03-22-06: A Critical Response

I present excerpts from President Bush's remarks on the War on Terror 03/22/06 in block quotes, interspersed with my comments and quotations from Islam's cannonical texts and other sources. I have added bold font and color for emphasis. To read the complete transcript of President Bush's remarks, click here.

"The enemy, a group of killers, struck us on September the 11th, 2001. They declared war on the United States of America."

Who is this enemy? Weren't they at war with us when they

  • destroyed our embassies in Kenya & Tanzania

  • bombed the World Trade Center in 1993

  • bombed the U.S.S. Cole?
Those were acts of war, not declarations. Who declared the war; in whose name? [Usama bin Laden,
1996]
"Praise be to Allah, we seek His help and ask for his pardon. We take refuge in Allah
from our wrongs and bad deeds. Who ever is guided by Allah will not be misled, and who ever has been misled, he will never be guided. I bear witness that there is no God except Allah,
no associates with Him and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and messenger."

What is Usama bin Laden's main issue?

"Hence it is essential to hit the main enemy who divided the Ummah into small and little countries and pushed it, for the last few decades, into a state of confusion. The Zionist Crusader
alliance moves quickly to contain and abort any "corrective movement" appearing in the Islamic countries. Different means and methods are used to achieve their target; on occasion the "movement" is dragged into an armed struggle at a predetermined unfavorable time and place.
Sometimes officials from the Ministry of Interior, who are also graduates of the colleges of the Shari'ah, are leashed out to mislead and confuse the nation and the Ummah (by wrong Fatwas) and to circulate false information about the movement. At other occasions some righteous
people were tricked into a war of words against the Ulama and the leaders of the movement,
wasting the energy of the nation in discussing minor issues and ignoring the main
one that is the unification of the people under the divine law of Allah
." ... "carry out Jihad in
the cause of Allah
raising His word and to defend the faith of Islam and the land of the two Holy Places against the invaders and the occupying forces."

Al-Qaeda is not the enemy; it is a subset of the enemy, one of many mujahideen groups. The war
was declared in the name of Allah, it is declared as "Jihad in the cause of Allah raising His word and to defend the faith of Islam". Clearly, the enemy is Islam. Muhammad quotes Allah in that book which claims to be the final and perfect expression of Allah's will:

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
.



Consider that ayeh in the light of these hadith:

Abu Dawud Book 14, Number 2635:
Narrated Anas ibn Malik:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: I am commanded to fight with men till they testify that there is no god but Allah, and that Muhammad is His servant and His Apostle, face our qiblah (direction of prayer), eat what we slaughter, and pray like us. When they do that, their life and property are unlawful for us except what is due to them. They will have the same rights as the Muslims have, and have the same responsibilities as the Muslims have.


Sahih Bukhari Ch. 63 No. 2989 [...] "Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, has commanded us to fight you until you worship Allah alone or pay the jizya. Out Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, has informed us from the message of our Lord: whoever of us is killed will go to the Garden in bliss whose like he has never seen. Whoever of us remains will be your masters ."[...]

Is the demonic commandment limited by geography or chronology, or is it a generally applicable
commandment remaining in force?


Sahih BukhariVolume 1, Book 7, Number 331:
Narrated Jabir bin Abdullah:

The Prophet said, "I have been given five things which were not given to any one else before me.


1. Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month's journey.


2. The earth has been made for me (and for my followers) a place for praying and a thing to perform Tayammum, therefore anyone of my followers can praywherever the time of a prayer is due.


3. The booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me.


4. I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of Resurrection).


5. Every Prophet used to be sent to his nation only but I
have been sent to all mankind.



Abu Dawud Book 14, Number 2526:

Narrated Anas ibn Malik:


[...] and jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the
Dajjal (Antichrist)
. [...]




The earth is purified for Muhammad, he is sent to all mankind, and Jihad continues until Judgement Day. Our criterium question is answered! Jihad is declared against all disbelievers wheresoever dispersed over the face of the earth up to and including Judgement Day.


[...]"cold-blooded killers hijacked airplanes, flew them into buildings and the Pentagon, and killed 3,000 of our citizens. In other words, they declared war, and we have got to take their
declaration of war seriously."


No, Mr. President, Allah & Muhammad declared war in 623, Usama bin Laden confirmed that declaration in 1996, and his companions executed a series of attacks, culminating in the second attack on the
WTC. We have to take Allah's declaration of war seriously!!!

[...]"you can't negotiate with these folks, there is
no compromise, there is no middle ground."


We can't negotiate with Islam, but Israel can? Mr. President, your "Road Map" to Mid East peace demands that Israel negotiate with and make concessions to Islam. Your cognitive dissonance is showing!

"Al Qaeda, after all, was the enemy that launched the attacks. "


Al-Qaeda is a name, which means "the base". The Ummah is the base of Islam: the set of all slaves of Allah. HAMAS is also a name, which means "Islamic Resistance Movement". Islam is the enemy! Al-Qaeda and HAMAS are subsets of the enemy.



"The second part of a lesson that we must never forget is the enemy, in that they're not a nation state -- in other words, they don't represent a nation state like armies and navies used
to do -- need safe haven. They need places to hide so they can plan and plot. And they found safe haven, as you all know, in Afghanistan. And they were supported by a government that supports their point of view, which is a government that absolutely can't stand freedom. That was the
Taliban. If you were a young girl growing up under the auspices of the Taliban, you didn't have a chance to succeed. You couldn't go to school. If you dissented in the public square, you'd be in trouble. If you didn't agree with their dark vision, whether it be religion or politics, you were in trouble. In other words, they can't -- they couldn't stand this concept of a free society -- and neither can al Qaeda. See, we're dealing with ideologues. They have an ideology."


Mr. President, where is that ideology recorded? What is it called? Usama quotes the Koran 18 times in the declaration of war cited above . Taliban means "students of the Koran". Could there be a connection? Lets inspect the HAMAS Charter.

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 judgment 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.



The HAMAS Charter quotes the Koran 25 times and declares that book to be its constitution!


"Now, I understand some say, well, maybe they're just isolated kind of people that are angry and took out their anger with an attack. That's not how I view them. I view them as people that believe
in something; they have an ideological base. They subverted a great religion to meet their needs, and they need places to hide. "


Al-Qaeda's ideological base is the Koran. Islam's foundation is the Koran. How then can you claim that "They subverted a great religion"? Who is better qualified to interpret Allah's commandments than Muhammad? Lets take a look at some of those commandments and how Muhammad interpreted them.

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."


9:29: Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh...

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...

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....

Allah commanded conquest, terrorism and genocide. Muhammad initiated more than 80 battles between 623 and 632. Muhammad bragged about being made victorious with terror cast into the hearts of his enemies. See Sahih Bukhari 4.52.220 for confirmation. He also committed genocide:

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.


[...]"we're not going to retreat in the face of thugs and assassins."

Thuggee (or tuggee) (from the Sanskrit root sthag (Pali, thak), to conceal, mainly applied to fraudulent concealment) was an Indian cult, operating from the 13th to the 19th centuries, worshipping Kali whose members were known as Thugs. It was allegedly a hereditary cult with
both Muslim and Hindu members that practiced large-scale robbery and murder of
travelers by strangulation. ...

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thugs -

Main Entry: as·sas·sin Pronunciation: &-'sa-s&n

Function: noun

Etymology: Medieval Latin assassinus, from Arabic hashshAshIn, plural
of hashshAsh one who smokes or chews hashish, from hashIsh hashish

1 capitalized : one of a secret order of Muslims that at the time of the Crusades terrorized
Christians and other enemies by secret murder committed under the influence of hashish


2 : a person who commits murder; especially : one who murders a politically important person either for hire or from fanatical motives


Interesting, is it not, that Wikipedia and Webster use Muslim in the definition of those two terms you correctly applied to the perpetrators of the second WTC attack?

"I believe freedom and liberty can change enemies into allies. I believe freedom has the power to transform societies. It's not easy work, it's difficult work. But we've seen history before.
I know you've got relatives who were in World War II. On that continent, hundreds of thousands of Americans lost their lives in two world wars during the 1900s. And yet today, Europe is whole, free and at peace. What happened? Democracies don't war. "


Ancient Greece & Rome had elected Senates. Did that keep them from practicing Imperialism? How about Turkey's invasion of Cyprus? The "Palestinian" Authority had "free elections". Who did they elect? Have the newly elected terrorists renounced their genocidal & policical objectives? Have they renounced Jihad?


Here is the bottom line: Islam claims a divine mandate to subjugate the entire world. They
have been engaged in repeated attempts to fulfill that mandate for 1395 years. They will desist when they are all apostatized or dead, not before. Which will it be, and how do you propose to bring it off? Allah's word does not change. Allah forbids editing & re-interpreting the Koran. Muhammad cursed anyone who changes Islam after his death. Islam can not be reformed, it must be eliminated. Repeated denials of objective factual reality do not advance your cause!
